A familiar face will greet per
sons in attendance at the 1950
annual Kosmet Klub Fall Revue,
Friday at the Coliseum.
Jack Cafson, .master of cere
monies for the Revue the last
three years, will be back again.
Gerald Matzke, in charge of
between-the-skit entertainment,
stated that the well-known en
tertainer would again offer his
services in his favorite role as
emcee.
Carson, an honorary member
of Kosmet Klub, graduated last
year from the University. He ma
jored in radio work and has been
active since then with his own

past years.
Koreans
Face New
Red Push
Attacking Red battalions
Korea drove back Republic
in
of
Korea troops in some sectors
Wednesday.
In other areas, slowly advanc
ing Americans reached the shores
of two resevoirs which produce
power for Manchuria as well as
Korea. The troops encountered
little resistance around the
Chang j in reservoirs. Well pre
pared defense positions were
found abandoned.
A U. S. First Corps spokesman
said that Chinese are using
North Koreans as a screen while
Chinese communists prepare
stronger positions in the rear.
Acheson Speaks
About 'Tragedy'
Secretary of State Dean Ache
son declared in Washington 'that
the United States must do every
thing possible to keep Chinese
intervention in Korea from
plunging the world into "a
tragedy of the most colossal
nature."
Meanwhile, John Snyder, trea
sury secretary, proposed a 75 per
cent tax on excess profits of
corporations, He would use the
taxes- to pay for the expanding
defense effort. Truman has said
that profits are soaring under
the. rearmnament program.
Police, Telephone
Workers Fight
Police and striking telephone
workers fought a two-hour
battle in Philadelphia Wednes
day. Police charges on picket
lines enabled telephone workers
of an independent union to get
to their jobs.
The Philadelphia clashes came
as the telephone strike neared
the end of its first week. Ten
sion was reported to be mounting
on picket lines across the nation.
Cautious Spending
Requested for State '
In Lincoln the budget com
mittee of the state legislature
urged cautious state spending.
The legislature members are
looking about for possible ways
to cut state expenditures.
The budget committee report
recommended careful considera
tion of the appropriation re
quested for the University Medi
cal School hospital in Omaha.
"Should a reduction in the
University's overall request be
found necessary," said the report,
"It would seem only logical that
a reduction could well be made
in other University activities
sufficipnt to prevent the curtail
ment of hospital funds."
Consideration was also urged
of having the University hospital
'take over all or part of the care
and treatment of patients now in
the Orthopedic hospital at Lin
coln, the Hospital for the Tuber
culous at Kearney and the In
dustrial home at Milford."

Kosmet. '
The Revue will begin at 8 p.m.
Friday evening following. Tick

which is the central theme of the
Revue. Scenes will depict the
general atmosphere of Broadway
Every group participating in
the Fall Revue must meet at
7:30 p.m., sharp, at the Coli
seum for dress rehearsal.
as it appears to the theater-goer,
the man on the street, or perhaps
a tourist in New York for the
first time. The accent of the show
Is on comedy and music.
The fall and spring Kosmet
Klub shows have unfolded quite
a history. Since the Klub was
originated in 1911, it has shared
a unique position with only one
other well-known organization of
its kind in the country.
In 1911, several members of the
junior class of that year worked
together in presenting a play for
the entertainment of the student
body.
Annual Event
The venture was so successful
that they decided to make it an
annual event and accordingly or
ganized a men's dramatic society
which they named the Kosmet
Klub.
During the Klub's beginning
years, women were allowed to
participate in the shows. How
ever, in 1927, the demand for an
all-male cast caused the Klub to
return to its original policy. Girls
in the shows were ignored for
awhile.
In 1940, a mixed cast appeared
in the Fall Revue and in 1941
coeds participated in the Spring
shows. Since then, coeds have
not taken part in the shows.
There was probably never more
color to a Kosmet Klub show
than in the spring of 1927 when,
during a production, the ancient
Playhouse theatre, one of Lin
coin's oldest, burned to the
ground, leaving the organization
owing $4,000 for property losses.
To make up the deficit, two hurriedly-produced
revues and a
benefit ball were organized.
1929 Fall Revue
Highlighting the 1929 Fall Re
view was the premiere of the
song, -"Sweetheart of Nebraska,"
written for the annual presenta
tion of the Nebraska Sweetheart
by Joyce Ayres, '30, and Lamar
Burling.
In 1936, the Spring Revue,
"Southern Exposure," with its
perennial all-male cast, paraded
before the newsreel cameras, with
Paramount, Fox and Universal
News companies making the trip
to Lincoln. The films were na
tionally distributed.
The Klub was inactive during
the war years of 1943 to the fall
of 1946, but has returned full
strength with Fall Revues and
spring musical comedies.

Sunday Last
Pheasant Day
Nebraska's 23-day long phea
sant season, already accepted as
one of the most successful and
productive hunts in recent year,
draws to a close Sunday, Nov. 19,
one hour before sunset.
But with the end of the phea
sant season, Nebraska hunters
needn't lay down their guns.
They can continue shooting ducks
and geese until Dec. 3.
The rooster pheasant limit this
year is four, larger than any
other state in the nation. This
in itself shows the excellent Job
the State Game Commission has
done in building up the Wildlife
resources of Nebraska the last
few years.

Prize Winning Blue Print
Published for 50th Year
The Blue Print, official maga
zine of engineering and archi
tecture students at the Univer
sity, began its 50th year of con
tinuous publication with the Oc
tober issue.
It is notable not only for the
length of time it has been in
existence, but also for the honors
it has won in competition with
schools who are members of En
gineering College Magazine As
sociated. For instance, last year
the magazine's editorial page
won second place among the . 32
entries. An alumni news column,
collected by Miss Maud Melick,
College of Engineering and Ar
chitecture secretary, was given
third place.
Articles in the Blue Print are
all student written. except Miss
Melick's col umn - aithe Dean's
Business Group
Discusses Prices
"Why control prices at the
present time, if at all?" will be
the main topic for discussion at
the bi-monthly forum of Alpha
Kappa Psi, professional business
fraternity, today at 8 p.m., in
the Union.
The topic will be enlarged
upon and these questions will
also be considered: If such con
trols are desirable, should they
be universal or selective con
trols? What effect would they
have at retail,- wholesale and
manufacturing levels? Would
you also include rent and price
controls?
The program will be present
ed by Richard M. Bourne, as
sistant professor of economics
and labor relations; Vic Eitel,
OPA rent attorney; Robert L.
Ferguson, owner of a local brick
yard; and Clifford M. Hicks, pro
fessor of business organization
and management. John Pfann
is chairman of the professional
committee and will act as mod
erator for the group.
707 Students Ente
Competition For M
The annual Moot Court will
begin Dec. 1 when the first two
pairs of upperclassmen in the
law college will present their
cases.
This court is a mock one
modeled after the Nebraska Su
preme Court and the United
States Supreme Court. It is
called the Allen Court for
Thomas Stinson Allen. A plaque
in his honor is located in the
law building upon which the
names of the annual winners are
inscribed.
The court Is under the super
vision of Prof. James Lake of
the law department and a board
of student advisers headed by
Kobert Moodie, a senior in Law
College.
The judges for the upperclass
men competition have not been
named as yet, but they will be
Lincoln lawyers, Prof. Lake said.
Senior law students will judge
tne iresnmen trials.
Seml-Flnalists
In the semi-finals will be
William Berquist and Robert
Scoville vs. Lewis Pierce and
Leonard Hammes Dec. 1 at 3
p.m. The winners of this argu
ment will meet the. team of
Robert Moodie and G. E. Stahl
next spring for the finals at the
state capitol.
The winners in the freshmen
competition last year, now sec
ond year men, who will argue
are as follows:
Bryon Johnson and Joe Koer-
ber vs. David Downing and John
Doyle Dec. 4 at 1:30 p.m.
William Sturgis and Duane

Corner, the work of Engineering
Dean Roy M. Green.
The editor and his assistants
decide what should go into each
issue and make assignments to
other students. An article on
Nebraska industry is included
each month.
Not Suppressed
As a student project, the Blue
Print may or may not agree
with the college's administrative
policies. If it doesn't, it says so
editorially. The faculty never has
tried to suppress any of the
writings. Only Sledge Jr., the
magazine's joke page, ever has
been censored by professors on
the publication board.
The magazine is independent
in other ways too. It is entirely
on its own financially, receiving
no college subsidy, as copiparable
publications in other school fre
quently do.
Originally, the magazine ap
peared only once a year and
contained reports by professors
and alumni. The first Blue Print
had a distinctly Pan-American
flavor, reflecting the United
States' increased interest in ter
ritorial expansion at the time.
Among the articles were one on
the Cuban sugar industry and
another on Havana's sanitation
system.
Improvements Voted
The first issues of both vol
umes one and 50 reported on
improvements which would
make homes more comfortable.
The first edition advocated care
ful planning of interior lighting
whether gas or electric; the
October 1950 issue reports on,
tall towers which bring better
television reception to millions
of Americans.
Howard Duncan is student
editor of the 1950 Blue Print.
George Cobel is business man
ager while George Andreasen
serves as general manager. Prof.
John H. Paustian is faculty
chairman of the publications
board.

New Policy Would Deny Coed
Participation as Cheerleaders
A decision made by the Stu
dent Council yesterday afternoon
delegates the administration of
the University yell squad to the
athletic department.
The yell squad, which is to be
'made up of only male students,
will now be coached by the ath
letic department. Tentative plans
for the squad include an advis
ory board from the atthletic de
partment, appointment of a regu
lar coach for the cheerleaders,
consistent workouts, supervised
training and possibly awards.
Suggestion was made by the
Council last week that girls be
allowed to act as alternate yell
leaders, cheering only for home
games and not taking part in
tumbling.
The athletic department em
phasized that training and coach
ing of both men and women yell
leaders would complicate the pro
ject and be hard to handle. They
recommended that the policy of
having only male cheerleaders be
carried on.
No Enthusiasm
Discussion held by Council
members on the problem brought
out the opnion that perhaps the
tumbling and athtletic abilities
of the yell squad do not particu
larly arouse team enthusiasm.
Rob Raun, Council president,
indicated that th.s will be taken
into consideration in the selec
tion of future yell leaders.
It was also argued that the
present plan is not particularly
representative of the Univer
sity. Some Council members felt,
too, that women students should
be given a chance to participate
in leading cheers.
Can Be Changed
Raunn said "If this plan proves
unsatisfactory, the Student Coun
cil can withdraw authority from
the athletic department." He also
indicated that the Council can
make recommendations to the
yell squad under this arrange
ment. The legislators were asked by
Raun to discuss with their re
spective organizations the possi
bilities of setting up a point sys
tem for men students.
This suggestion was introduced
to the Council by the student ac
tivities committee;
Last year the point system for
men was discussed on the basis
that it required too much admin
istration for the good it did.
Seats Reserved
A motion was approved to re
serve a block of seats for the
faculty in the west bleachers of
the Coliseum if they still are in
favor of such a plan.
The liason committee of the
faculty presented the proposal to
the athletic department. The mat
ter was then referred to the
Council.
Miriam Willey, acting secretary
for the group of delegates to the
Student Council convention,
listed the subjects which will be
presented by the University dele
gates at the convention. They are:
migration seating, orientation
program, Independent Students
association problems and devel
opment of traditions.
Basketball
Ticket Sales
Start Nov. 27
Basketball tickets for Univer
sity students, faculty members
and the general public will go
on sale at the Coliseum ticket
office, Monday, Nov. 27.
Tickets for the students and
faculty will include admittance
to basketball and all other sports
during the rest of. the school
year. Public tickets will cover
basketball games only.
Business Manager A. J. Lew
andowski announced that the
faculty tickets will be $4 and
student tickets, $3, tax included.
Ticket Prices
Reserved seats for the general
public will be $1.50 and general
admission tickets, $1.
The Student Council reported
earlier this year that the entire
side of the Coliseum and the
west bleachers would be re
served as a student and faculty
section at basketball games.
The Council campus improve
ments committee met with Ath
letic Director Potsy Clark and,
through the cooperation of the
athletic department, set up the
student-faculty seating block.
Provide Better Seating:
The purpose of the plan is to
provide better seating for stu
dents and to develop more spirit
at basketball games.
Under the new system the student-faculty
section will be re
served until a definite period be
fore game time. This period will
probably be five or ten minutes.

ing at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov.
17, in room 108, Burnett hall.
At present, Finn is command

periences when the mediators
tried to bring about a peace set
tlement between the Jews and
Arabs in Palestine.
Enforce Truce
When truces were negotiated,
the military observers made sure
that the truces were respected by
both sides. Finn's division of the
commission accomplished the
truce to discontinue fighting near
the Holy Sepulcher. In addiition,
the division investigated viola
tions such as shooting down
neutral planes, working at all
times with military leaders of
both the Israel and Arab armies.
Trying to find the reasons for
the war and to find possible
means of bringing about peace
were included in Finn's duties.
Durmg World War II, Com
mander Finn was a fighter co
ordinator and pilot. He received
several medals for active combat
in the Iwo Jima and Okinawa
campaigns.
