Due Nov. 1
All organized men's houses
participating in the Ugliest Man
on Campus contest must send in
respective notices of their selec
tions by Wednesday, Nov. 1.
The contest originatd by the
All University Fund was created
recently to give men a chance to
pain publicity, said -Jo Lisher, di
rector. Purposes of the contest, ac
cording to AUF officials are:
"To enable men students on
campus who would have no
chance in a beauty contest, to
win at least a title like UMOC.
"To provide the various men's
houses an opportunity to get
some publicity through their il
lustrious representatives.
"To afford every student a
iplendid opportunity to practice
getting out the vote' in Novem
ber even though he or she is
not 21."
Each house must submit its
candidate's name to Jackie Hoss,
1545 S street.
Voting for the UMOC will be
held Nov. 1-21. "Votes will cost
one nickle. Students who cast
votes will -wrap them about the
tiickle. The proceeds thus
earned will be added to the AUF

versity of Chicago, he said. The
Oak Ridge laboratory is run by
the Union Carbide Chemical
corporation and the Los Alamos
project by the University of Cali
fornia. Big: Business
Atomic energy, Trapnell said,
is a bigger business than is com
monly realized. The actual in
vestment in physical plan facili
ties fs more than $2 billion, and
the total real estate area the
commission owns or leases is
greater in size than Delaware.
For many of the developments
in atomic energy, he said, the
commission draws on universi
ties and other research institu
tions. Another responsibility of the
commission is providing for the
training of more and more tech
nicians. Trapnell pointed out
that there is still a serious short
age of leaders in the field. To
help this shortage, the coopera
tion of universities in the na
tional laboratories is essential,
he added. The University is one
of the institutions taking part in
the Argonne project.
Labs Specialise
The Argonne laboratory con
centrates on development of
weapons and productional pro
cesses, Trapnell said. Weapons
and materials are produced at
Los Alamos. The Oak Ridge and
Hanford plants manufacture fis
sionable materials U 235 at Oak
Ridge and plutonium at Han
ford. Trapnell spoke tf the ini'or-.
motion services of the AEC. "Not
nearly -everything about atomic
energy is secret," he said. He
urged the newspaper -editors to
take advantage of the material
available on the subject.

The present status of the UCLA
Daily Bruin is a testimonial to
their effectiveness."
""It veers from a position far
left to approximate center and
back again, but whether it ever
reflects student opinion is de
batable," Worden reports. He
also mentions that the Bruin em
ployed an avowed communist,
Helen Edelwan, as a political
writer in the spring of 1950.
The Daily California of Berkely
fires back, "Worden does not ac
cuse the Bruin of being run by
Communists or following the
party line directly; -he only
implies it."
Published by the UCLA Asso
ciated Students, the Bruin is
staffed with volunteers. Worden
charges that the Bruin can be
controlled by any group able to
send along enough volunteer re
porters and keep them working
after others have quit."
Aimed at USC
The Daily Californian writer
apparently believes the Worden
article is aimed at the USC cam
pus as well as UCLA. Israel

ing, "The pattern is the same at
UCLA, Berkeley and many other
Worden sums up his opinions
on communist infiltration with,
"To infiltrate a university is
simple. All you nee-i is a few
loyal workers willing to sweat
for the revolution; a lot of dupes
who will shout up and down
academic halls for causes with
out bothering to find who thought
them up; a few actual friction
points such as housing or fra
ternities or racial -discrimination;
a weak point or two, like a
floundering newspaper ..."
"You can use these methods
and have a wonderful time an
noy deans, wreck the sleep of
administrators and get yourselves
scareheads in newspapers,"
Worden tells campus reds.
Honor Svstem
In Force At Knox
A new honor system to be en
forced by a student honor board i
will go into effect at Knox col-
lege at Galesburg, HI., this se
mester. This system will place
the main responsibility for
cheating and resultant discipli
nary measures in the hands of
the student body.
The honor board -constitution,
drawn up by the student coun
cil, provides that the student
board will hear all honor cases
and recommend disciplinary
The new system will be ex
plained to all new students -during
freshman orientation week of
each year. Each student will then
sign a card certifying that he
understands the system.

Leaf Rust Bad
Over Nebraska
The heaviest amount of leaf
rust infection rn the recollection
of some University authorities
has hit the state's main winter
wheat producing areas.
But a Uni"ersity extension
plant pathologist said he doubts
there will be appreciable losses
in stands because of the leaf
rust. Plant Pathologist John L.
Weihfng said the biggest loss
probably will be caused by the
fall rust knocking out much fall
Weihing said, however, that if
the rust becomes severe enough
to kill most or all of the leaves,
it could weaken the plants suf
ficiently to cause some winter
The plant pathologist said a
spring rust -epidemic never has
originated from a fall outbreak.
If "leaf rust becomes severe next
spring, he said, it probably will
originate from spores blown in
from anoher territory. The fall
malady is concentrated mostly in
western Nebraska. t ,

Drive Begun
By Unions
A membership drive for Ag
and City Union committee work
ers was started Monday by the
public relations committee.
The Ag Union still has open
ings for both men and women
students on. the Union activities
committee, according to Hollis
Eggers, Ag union activities di
rector. Male students are needed
for the city campus Union activi
ties pool.

to sign for membership in one
of the four committees thf s week.

terested may become members of
committees directly. Students do
not go through the year's train
ing in an activities pool. This ar
rangement is provided srnoe
there are fewer students to work
on committees at Ag.
Four Af Groups
Since there are only four com
mittees, members from all are
frequently called upon to help
arrange for the larger affairs,
such as the open house in the
fall and the Skylight Terrace ball
in the spring.
The four committees are: Pub
lic relations, which is in charge
of all publicity for the Ag Union
and takes care of the magazines
which are in the lounge: hobbies
and handicraft, in charge of
eraftshop; -dance, which arranges
hour dances and dancing lessons;
and general entertainment, whose
function is to provide the campus
quarterback movies.
Visits Houses
The public relations committee
visited the organized houses and
dorms Monday evening to solicit
workers for the Union activities
itu dents who sign up tor work
will be placed in the committee
files. During the school year, each
worker's name will be rotated to
