According to news reports, State Senator Tvr dik of Omaha plans to ask the Legislature to force the University to televise its home football games next season. In a "Monday morning editorial, the Omaha World-Herald said "Mr. Tvrdik seems to have of the stiffest competition in the country. We considerable support . . . and his proposal may prove popular with many TV set owners." The World-Herald goes on to comment, "If TV should reduce average attendance at Nebraska games, the University's presently self-sustaining athletic de partment might be forced into the red." The Herald queries, "Is the Legislature prepared to make up this loss through appropriations?" If attendance at football games were to de ditions. The University has no reason not to comply with conference rulings. We follow its man dates on eligibility of athletes, the sanity code, etc. As a member of the Big Seven we play some use Big Seven officials. We participate in Big Seven tournaments and track meets. And we consistently win Big Seven conference cham pionships in various sports. Is it not logical that we abide by the wishes of the conference hierarchy? Diploma in Bed . . .

It seems to me that this governing body should not be "forced" to put such a campaign into action. To illustrate this a little more, it seems that the . : board con tacted a photo grapher to take some pictures of some of the student as they crossed the "cow paths" that adorn our campus at the present time.

Not only does this statement hold true for citizens of the state but applies just as well to the University. Who knows if the student in agronomy will have a farm with oil wells all over it, or if the boy asleep in "math "exams," about the "Ivy Covered Walls?" What kind of memories will they be? The above questions are not apparently given too much thought or consideration by the Univer sity as a whole.

Also, when some pic tures were taken, the subjects of these pictures were none too happy about the whole situation which, to me, indicates that they knew good and well that they should stay off the paths. So, what do you say fellow Aggies, why don t each one of us it upon ourselves to stay on sidewalks? If we don't, there is a plan in effect now whereby names will be taken of those "caught" cut ting across and if enough names are taken of each individual these people will be called in to Dean Lambert's office for a word of advice. Now, we should know better than to make this neces sary shouldn't we? The Ag Union general enter tainment committee, under the chairmanship of Jean Holmes, is going to start sponsoring weekly discussion topics which will al ternate between hour dances on Wednesday afternoons. In other words, there will be an hour dance one week and a discussion the next week. Topics for these discussions will be of general Ag college activities that affect the whole college. For example, plans are for the first one to be on the new proposed "Ag Council." Plans are in the making now for the Ag Union activities com mittee to sponsor a move to co ordinate the Ag college calendar. It is hoped to set up a com mittee composed of members rep resenting every Ag organization that sponsors any activity and this group will set up the cal endar for the coming year. Of course, the Ag Exec board will have the final approval of the thing before it is sent to the other approval authorities. I might mention here that on Feb. 28, the final ping-pong tour ney of the year will be played at the Ag Union. These contest ants will consist of the winners of each of the weekly tourna ments currently being held in the Ag Union. Don't forget the Jr. Ak-Sar-Ben which is to be held in the State Fair Grounds Coliseum March 17.

By Shirley Murphy Spring is coming with the sing ing of birds, warm southern breezes blowing the curl out of the average coed's hair, thoughts of love and puddles of mud. With thoughts of spring like these, one must have heart, body and soles One little coed dem onstrated these qualities when shd slipped and fell on one of the numerous mud terraces of city campus. How would it feel to sit in the slimy mud; hair straight from the damp breeze; and watch your favorite hero casually stroll by with his buddies? It's really all in the soles! With crepe, rubber and leather, falls come easy. But what's a modern girl to do? The new stylish suede shoes have crepe soles. Saddle shoes are usually coated with rubber and loafers gener ally have leather soles. A girl just isn't safe in these new fash ioned shoes. The barefoot pio neer had much surer footing. Few Solutions Only two solutions are avail able for the "down on the mud" problem. Either wear football or track shoes, or get rid of the mud. Both solutions seem highly improbable. Another aspect of mud in the springtime, is its affiliation with thoughts of love. This may be termed "mud-slinging" in the in fernal triangle. The best policy in a situation such as this would be "Do unto others as they do unto you." This rule breeds all kinds of politicians. Most people aren't plagued by such extreme problems with mud. however. Only the most frus trated get themselves involved in a love triangle or politics. Many girls and boys are bothered by bobby-sock tops and trouser legs clotted with chocolate colored mud-dots. A Daily Occurrence This isn't a major campus prob lem usually in the headlines. It's a daily occurrence with the beau tiful spring weather. Solutions for this are vague and generally stated in lines like "Stay on the silewalk" or "Watch out for splashing cars." Mud has been important in the past, though. If Sir Walter Ra leigh hadn't laid his coat in the mud for Queen Elizabeth, he might never have made the pages of the history books. The Russians might never have won the battle against Napoleon if they hadn't been so adept in muddy conditions and Napoleon such a "tissy-pritzle."

"The students have taken the situation into hand," claims the Daily, "they have made deci sions" According to the paper, the stu dents have learned to adjust their study habits, their plans for the future, and have buckled down to face the situation "straight in the eye," despite the strain of war hysteria. 'Don't Care Attitude According to the Daily, mid western and southern colleges alike were suffering from "don't care anymore" and disillusioned outlooks. They have also received reports from many colleges dents being lost to the services. "The Iowa State College cam pus remained relatively quiet," observes the Daily. "Students at this midwestern college weren't influenced toward apathy and pessimism by the current crisis as was reported by other colleges and universities." It also maintains, "The major ity of students and faculty of Iowa State responded calmly and optimistically to the possibility of the United States sliding into an other World War." Low Grade Decrease To follow up this observation, the Daily reported that there was an actual decrease in mid-term grades of "D" and "F" reported for the winter quarter in com parison to previous quarters. It pointed to the plight of the Uni versity of Oklahoma where, in Y story of Srt. Zack of the U. S. iBfa.fr. . . . Hit Cratd: "IF YOU'RE SMART, YOU LIVE! IF YOU'RE DUMB, YOU OIE!

A Member of the Iowa State scholarship committee was quoted as saying, "It seems students here are taking things a bit more seri ously than at other colleges. They want to keep a good record in college, so that when they do come back they will have no trouble re-entering. They are al so keeping their grades up so that they may have a better chance of taking advantage of any new favorable draft regulations."
