Policy Hit
By Taft
Assails Sending
Troops Abroad
The United States has no
business "butting in" in Europe,
Senator Robert A. Taft told the
members of the Senate last week.
Taft doubted the constitution
ality of sending troops to Europe
without first obtaining the con
sent of Congress. He issued a
ten-thousand word speech bit
terly attacking President Tru
man's foreign policy.
Taft said that he doubted that
Russia plans a military conquest
of the world. He said he saw
; no conclusive evidence that the
' , Soviet Union contemplates war
with the United States.
The chairman of the Senate
Republican policy committee said
he would favor sending a limited
number of American troops in
H ,x support of the North Atlantic
pact, if European nations took the
lead in establishing such a force.
, Truman had announced that
'. he would send an unspecified
. number of troops to Europe as
soon as possible. He said he did
; ' not need the consent of Congress.
Calling the United Nations
V "ineffective," Taft said he did not
; think that the rest of the world
could be abandoned to rely solely
upon the defenses of the North
and South American continents.
' His speech came a day after
- Senator Wherry had announced
' a "Taft for President" drive in
Austin Ures World
To Rally Against Reds
Warren R. Austin- American
delegate ot the United Nations,
called on the free nations of the
world to rally against the Chinese
aggression in Korea.
There were, however, indica
tions that British commonwealth
and other nations of the world
would not consider an American
proposal to condemn the Chinese
communists as aggressors.
Austin said that the time for a
successful cease-fire proposal was
past. The Chinese communists
intend to drive U. N. forces into
tthe sea, he said.
Reports indicate that the U.S.
is attempting to show some of
ft 19 the smaller nations that their
I time is coming, if the Chinese are
v successful in Korea. American
3 delegates were reported to be
discussing the matter with some
of the smaller countries.
Planting; Restrictions
On Corn- Wheat Lifted
Planting restrictions on 1951
corn and wheat crops were lifted
Friday by Secretary of Agricul
ture Charles Brannan. He said
that the United States needs a
maximum of these grains in view
of the current national situation.
The government had previ
ously announced a system of al
lotments for planting of corn and
wheat in 1951. Restrictions had
been lifted on cotton production,
but controls remained on pea
nuts, rice and some kinds of
Wheat will continue to be sup
ported at 90 percent of parity,
Brannan said. The supports of
corn were not announced.
Nebraska's Sen. Kenneth
Wherry commented that the pro
posal has so many "ramifica
tions that it cannot be immedi
ately taken or rejected."
' ft Trainmen Reject
Waife Ajreement
A three-year pact concerning
, wages and hours was rejected
by railroad firemen and train
men. A plan announced on Dec.
21, by Presidential assistant John
R. Steelman, involved 300,000
railroad workers.
The country's major railroads
have been under government
control since Aug. 26, when they
were seized because of a threat
ened general strike of conductors
and trainmen.
At the same time, railroad traf
fic officials said that they would
request freight rate increases of
six per cent from the interstate
commerce commission.

Six 1951 Beauty Queens
Judged by Jimmy Dorsey
Jimmy Dorsey has selected
the six finalists in the 1951
Cornhusker Beauty Queen con
test. The 12 finalists journeyed to
Omaha Sunday to meet Dorsey.
Each had a personal interview.
The judging took place at 4 p.m.
at the Omaha Athletic club.
Dorsey appeared at Peony park
on Jan. 6 and 7. The selection
committee decided that this year,
a personal interview would of
fer a better basis for selection
than merely judging only by the
pictures as has been done in the
Ends Today
Says Hoover
Dr. Floyd Hoover, assistant
registrar and director of admis
sions, announced that today
would be the last day of second
semester registration.
Students holding assignment
numbers 3200 and higher can
register today in the Military
and Naval building from 8 to
11:30 a.m. and 12:45 to 4:30 p.m.
Registration, which started
Thursday, Jan. 4, has been mov
ing much faster than planned
and the process will be completed
two days early than expected.
The main bulk registering to
day will be those students in
junior division.
Six thousand pencils have been
given by the courtesy of the Na
tional Bank of Commerce to the
University for students register
ing. Free refills can also be ob
tained at the bank.
Registration fees will be paid
alphabetically in two days, Jan.
22, A to L and Jan. 23, M to Z,
instead of the three days pre
viously planned.
Payment of tuition fees will
be in Grant Memorial.
The new NU ruling which re
stricts a student adding or drop
ping a course after 12 noon Feb.
17 is in effect because of the new
veterans administration law.
The government will not pay
a veteran's subsituant fee or tui
tion after the third week of
school, therefore according to Dr.
Hoover, "What ever applies to
the veteran, must also apply to
the non-vets in school."
Previous to the new rule, a stu
dent was permitted to add or
drop a class at anytime.

Regents Accept Conditional
Bids on Building Projects
The University Board of Re
gents accepted Saturday subject
to approval by the state legisla
ture low bids on two proposed
building projects considered vital
to food production in case of war.
The projects are the Meat
laboratory to be built at an esti
mated cost of $284,310; and the
Dairy Production laboratory, to
be rennovated and an addition
built at a cost of $207,127.
A legislative bill, introduced
Thursday, would freeze all new
construction by state institutions
receiving funds from the special
state mill levy.
The bill was introduced at the
request of Gov. Val Peterson,
who, early in December, asked
state institutions to voluntarily
suspend public building until the
legislature could act. The freeze
request was made, the Governor
said, to release materials needed
for the national defense effort.
Exceptions Considered
In his inaugural address, Goy
ernor Peterson said he would ask
the legislature to decide if an ex
ception to the freeze order should
be made in the case of the Meat
laboratory, Dairy Production
laboratory and insectary. Bids
will be taken by the University
in about 60 days on the insectary
if funds are provided by the

"It is the duty of the Univer
sity and the state to get facilities
such as these in shape to lend the
greatest possible assistance to our
nation," Dean Lambert said.
Dean Lambert said the new
dairy building would provide fa
cilities for developing inbred
families of Holstein cattle, for
better dairy farm management
methods, for studying methods of
handling semen and increasing
the Conception rate of dairy cows,
and for developing new methods
of handling dairy pastures and
hay crops.

would provide facilities to curry

Exams StiU Required
"All students now registered
in the University," said Rosen
lof, "are expected to complete all
requirements for the current
semester, including taking the
final examinations. No provisions
have been made for the auto
matic excuse of any student from
taking final exams on account of
the war emergency."
Because of the present war
situation, a special committee has
authorized the issuance of a
blank to be used by students
who are called into the military
service prior to finals. The blanks
are now in the hands of each of
the deans of the several colleges.
To aid those leaving for the
services, all instructors have the
privilege to excercise their own
prerogative with respect to any
requirements that must be made
by a student withdrawing from
the University at this time.
Permission Of Profs
When the draftee or volunteer
has received permission from his
individual instructors to be ex
cused from final examinations,
the blank is to be filed with the
Dean of Student Affairs, T. J.
Nine years ago at almost ex
actly the same time on the cam
pus, a similar situation existed.
Provisions were hastily being
made for those leaving for the
forces before examinations.
A special meeting was called
by the Board of Regents to dis
cuss the examination period. Un

Regents, draftees or volunteers

and had a grade of 70 per cent or
better in those courses.
Former NU Policy
One-half semester credits were
granted after eight weeks of
study; full credit .after. 12 weeks.
Any student entering the
armed forces could request, with
the approval of the department
and the dean of the college con
cerned, examinations for partial
or full credit of any of the
courses he was carrying.
Students who had entered em
ployment in defense were given
similar privileges. In the case of
students who had already drop

plan, the students could apply to
the dean of their former college

"The Meat laboratory and the
Dairy Research laboratory have
great immediate and long-term
value to the livestock and dairy
industries of Nebraska," Dean
Lambert said. "In addition,
agencies of the armed forces will
probably use our facilities to ca
pacity." Dean Lambert said the insec

to solve the farm insect pest
problem, but also would provide
Nebraska a center from which to
combat a possible use of insects
during the war.
