Union Fee Raises
An enlarged Union and a big
size Daily Nebraskan are assured
university students as a result
of action taken by the Board of
Regents in approving a $5 in
crease in tuition fees for the fall
and spring semesters.
The increase, which will raise
fees to $80 a semester, will pro
vide for $1.50 more in student
health fees. Three dollars of the
remainder will go to retire bonds
which will be issued to build an
addition to the present Union,
and to build a Union building on
Ag campus. The Daily Nebras
kan will receive 50 cents a se
mester from each student to help
meet the operating deficit caused
by the increased size in the Rag.
The fee increase was put to
student vote April 26 and ap
proved 2 to 1 for the Union addi
. tion Students turned down the
Rag fee increase."
When the addition to the Un
ion is built, new recreational,
service, and cultural facilities
will be included. The addition

Broadway Approves.
Margo Jones, director of such
Broadway hits as Joan of Lor
raine and the Glass Menagerie,
says of the Holbrooks, that she
hopes "We will get a chance to
work together someday."
In addition to their plaform
work, the Holbrooks have re
cently invaded the television
field with, such success that a
featured program has been of
fered them. The greatest prob
lem thus far, they say, is the
question of time, since they are
booked solidly this season.
Wide Range. .
The Holbrooks - will present
several scenes from their "Thea
ter of Great Personalities." Their
characterizations cover a wide
range, including such figures as
Mark Twain, Elizabeth and
Essex, and the Brownings. Their
newest comedy number is an
episode from Moliere's farce,
"The School for Wives," featur
ing its two principal characters,
Arnalphe and Agnes.

The Holbrooks have developed a
technique of swift and startling
changes of appearance which
keep the program moving
smoothly with little time wasted
between scenes. , ; ; t ', ' ' ; '

79th Senior Class Hears
Call for Mature Leaders
r The University's largest graduating class heard a call
for a mature, moral, dynamic American leadership to give
the world a lasting and decent peace.
It came from Norman Cousins, New York City, editor
of The Saturday Review of Literature, who addressed the
University's 79th annual commencement Monday morning
at the Coliseum.
The commencement audience,
largest ever assembled in Uni
versity history, included 1,644
graduates who received a total of
1,661 degrees. Of their numbers
1,317 were men and 344 women.
Veterans made up 56 per cent,
compared with 64 per cent last
The 1950 class, including mem
bers who graduated from the
College of Medicine nine days
ago, numbers 1,775, or 259 more
than in 1949. The number of de
grees granted this spring, failed
by one of reaching an even 1,800.
Honorary Degrees.
At the ceremonies Monday, the
University conferred honorary
doctors degrees on three of its
former students:
Dr. Ewald T. Grether, Dean of
the School of Business Adminis
tration of the University of Cali
fornia, honorary Doctor of Laws.
Mari S. Sandoz, now residing
in New -York City, author of
"Old Jules," and other books,
honorary Doctor of Literature.
Dr. Arthur Bessey Smith, vice
president of the Automatic Elec
tric Laboratories, Inc., of Chica
go, honorary Doctor of Engin
eering. Cousins titled his address, "A
Time For Ideals," and through
out it he urged Americans to
consider carefully such . ques
tions as these:
"Is it true that a substantial
portion of our foreign policy has
been based on one of history's
greatest miscalculations the as
sumption that America would be
able to maintain atomic mon
opoly for at least seven years
after Hiroshima?
"Is it true that even if we suc
ceed in manufacturing ten hy
drogen bombs to Russia's one,
we are still at a military disad
vantage because of the concen
tration of our population and
our industry, making us a
supremely vulnerable target? Is
it also true that Russia, because
of the decentralization of her
population and industry, is much
better situated to withstand
atomic warfare?
"Is it true that even more im
portant than military weapons
today are the ideas that will de
termine which way the pre
ponderance of the world's peo
ples are going to turn in the
years just ahead? Is it true that
this involves an ideological
struggle which cannot be won
without winning the respect and
support of the bihion and a half
people outside the United States
and Russia.
"Is it true that while we are
engaged in post-mortems over
China, a serious threat is devel
oping to India, Indonesia, and
in general, the entire area of
Southeast Asia? Is it true that
if this area goes the way. of
China America will have lost
the cold war without firing a
Point Four
. "Is it true that while 'we are
procrastinating over Point Four,
(the use of American,vcapital to
bolster underdeveloped areas of
the world) Soviet Russia may be
planning to take the ball away
from us by moving in with a
large-scale program for applying
atomic energy to develop the re
sources of Far Eastern territor
ies under its influence or con
trol? "Is it true that our best chance
for winning and maintaining the
support of the preponderance of
the world's peoples is not only
through , Uotal i diplomacy' but
