Korea AidIdea Gains
The Russian government was
accused Monday by Nationalist
China that it had "organized,
financed, directed and ordered"
the aggression of North Korea.
Tingu F. Tsiang, nationalist
delegate, made the charge before

Minister Edward Kardelj urged
that hostilities in Korea cease

A Builders sponsored project,
the three day celebration first
gained attention in about 1930
when students and faculty be

event which would acquaint the
public with the University.
The Faculty Senate approval
of a similar plan in March 1931
has been equalled by enthusiasm
of campus leader and officials
today. Introduction of the plan
has resulted in immediate back

Cup of Coffee
"How about a tup of coffee?"
This query, familiar to many
a student, now brings with it
the startling realization that the
nickel cup of coffee has become
a thing of the past. Thus, with
rising prices and overhead as
well, those frequented handouts
around campus have been forced
to increase the ante on one of its
most popular drinks.
Uni Sundries, the high school
and college haunt, is charging ten
cents a cup. Mr. Jack Kindsuater,
cashier, remarked, "most of the
kids are accepting the price rise
fairly well. They seem to realize
that there is a definite inflation
not only with coffee, but with
cream and wages as well."x Mr.
Kirtsuater also commented that
coke and phosphate sales had
made a climb upwards, while
coffee orders had decreased
At the Campus Inn, haven of
the midmorning and midafter
n o o n coffee enthusiasts, Mr.
Wayne J. Schammel put a new
angle on the situation. He says,
'by popular request, we raised
coffee to a dime. The students
don't like to fiddle around with
pennies, I guess. Some of them
have asked me, when are you
going to haul out your gun and
start marching?,' but aside from
joking, I've received very few

fee was the commodity that had
shown the greatest jump in price
anywhere, and that married stu

The plans will certainly get a
"respected hearing" at the meet
ing soon of the deans of col
leges, he continued. "It is a sell
ing proposition as far as the
students are concerned."
Aid Prep Students
One outstanding importance of
such a project, he said, is that
it would acquaint high school
students to the University, its
colleges and opportunities.
When the Senate Faculty
committee approved the similar
plant in 1931, it wrote that it
realized how important such a
project could be toward promot
ing loyalty to the University, and
a better relationship between
students and faculty. It would
also aid students of one college
in becoming acquainted in an-oher.
At Ag College
Dr. Lester E. Hanson, one of
the nation's leading authorities in
the field of swine nutrition, is
resigning from the University
faculty, effective October 1.
He will accept a position at the
University of Minnesota. He came
to Nebraska in 1940 from Cornell
University. Dr. Hanson will be
succeeded in the University's
Animal Husbandry department
by Dr. Merle J. Brinegar.
Dr. Hanson is widely known
for his research work at the
University. His fundamental
studies in swine nutrition have
attracted wide attention.
Dr. Brinegar, his successor, is
a native of Nebraska. He received
his Doctor's degree at Cornell
University. He graduated from
the University of Nebraska in
1947 with a Bachelor of Science
degree. His graduate work has
been in the field of animal nutri
tion. He has several research
publications to his credit.
Korean Student to Speak
Before Cosmopolitan Club
Suk Soon Suh, University
student from Korea, will address
the Cosmoplitan club Wednes
day evening. Anyone interested
is invited to attend.
The Cosmoplitan club, organi
zation of foreign students on the
campus, meets every Wednesday
in room 315 Union at 7:30 p.m.
Club President Juergen an
nounces that Mr. Suh will at
tempt to answer any question
raised at the meeting relative
to his homeland.
Thing of Past
the campus there is Brick's Ham
burger Ship with its "Rogue's
Gallery" of football personalities.
"Brick" Willis, proprietor con
tends, "I could sell coffee for a
dime, but the seven-cent cup
seems to go over pretty big with
the people that come in here. It
is still my cheapest drink, so
I've received very few com
plaints. Once in awhile, someone
will ask, 'what's the deal?' but
it's very seldom."
Next door to the Temple
building. Royal's Snack gets its
share of speech and music ma
jors. "We charge' seven cents for
coffee because we feel we're be
ing fair to the student that way,"
puts in Mrs. Royal Helzer, the
owner's wife. "The extra pennies
are a nuisance," she admits, "but
my husband and I feel we're do
ing the best thing under the cir
cumstances." In the calm, quiet atmosphere
at Hermie's "N", the law and
architecture students talk over
the events of the day. Abe Willis,
co-operator with Mr. Hermie
Rohrig declares, "1 have had
very few gripes on the 'upped'
coifea price. I'm going to stick
to the seven-cent deal as long as
I can, because I know that for
college kids money sometimes
doesn't come so easily. I want to
give them a fair deal."
From here on out, kiddies, it
looks as though everyone's go
ing to have to wake up to facts
when they slap down that cof
fee nickel on the counter and the
cashier lashes out, "Hey, bud
die, How about those extra pennies?"

According to Gene Berg, Build
ers president in charge of the
project, the organization hopes to
encourage, by means of College
Days, an interest in every college
and department in the University.
"Like Veishea," points out
Berg, "emphasis will be on the
educational side of college. How
ever, the fun and athletics of
college will not be neglected in
the three days. Students, faculty
and friends will be acquainted to
colleges, fun, activities and sports.
In addition, the project will
seek to publicize the University
to Nebraska high schools by hav
ing the outstanding students
present for the event. Alumni in
terest may be sparked by College
Days, says Berg, and University
spirit should be boosted.
"It is by far the largest project
ever undertaken by Builders,"
says Berg, "and one of the largest
even entertained by the Univer
sity." Each college will be respon
sible for open house, and the or
ganization and planning of its
events. Organized houses on cam
pus will be urged to hold open
houses. Exhibits and displays of
various types will be encouraged.

operation of all phases of the
University. Dean Thompson will
call a meeting in the next couple
weeks of all deans of colleges to
discuss the plans. All organized
houses will be asked to cooperate
in the College Days.
An overall central committee
will form the nucleus of College
