World War IIL
Mr. Hoover said Europe can't
be defended with less than 100
division's and there is "utmost
jeopardy" involving the United
States in land war there.
Speaking before the senate for

issue, Hoover said in a

at the present moment. That
is, to build up the air and naval
power of the United States and
Britain so as to overwhelm Rus

NEBRASKA'S OFFICIAL RING A new ring designed by a
senior class committee will soon be available to all Nebraska
alumni and present students. Shown above in a portrait of the
design worked out with the held of the Balfour company. The
bottom of the ring is bound together by a corn husk. One side
of the ring shows the top part of the state capitol. On the other
side is the seal of the University. On top is a protruded "N"
surrounded by "University of Nebraska." The founding date, 1869,

First Official Ring.
This is the first officials ring
the University has had. Shortly
after World War II veterans of
the different services, who had
seen other servicemen with rings
from various universities, made
inquiries to the alumnae associa
tion and the Nebraska Book store
as to whether or not the Uni
versity had a ring. This demand
became so great that the Book

Symbolizes NU-SUte Unity
The bottom of the ring is bound
together by a corn husk which
symbolizes the unification of the
University and the state. There
is a corncob on either side of
the husk. On one side of the ring
is the top part of the state cap
itol. The wheat and the corn
show Nebraska's two major
crops. On the other side is the
seal of the University. The corn
husks cut through the seal.
The ring is made of heavy gold
of varying colors. On the top is
an N which stands out from the
ring. Surrounding it are the words
University of Nebraska. The
University's founding date, 1889,
is inscribed on the bottom.
Different from High School Eiart
"The ring is very different
from high school and other or
ganization rings," Aaron Schmidt
stated. "We have tried to get away
from the triteness and plamess of
these rings," he added.
At present only rings for men
are available, but if the demand
is strong enough women's rings
will be made. They are for sale
to any student who has attended
the University or who is enrolled
here now. The ring is not a senior
class ring but fr every t r; ember
of the University.
The rings themselves will not
be here until the first or second

more unusual is the fact that
this man, Harry 5 F. Cunningham,
who was highly commended for
his guidance in V raising the few
engineering college courses to
aarchitecture department status,
has no college degree.
But now, with a load of 23
hours of class work per week,
Harry Cunningham will work

At UN from '30 -'34
He first came to the University
in 1930, when Nebraskans became
"architecture conscious" after the
completion of the capitol and
wanted a school at the university.
He resigned in 1934.
He has again enrolled because ;
of a life-long desire to be a 1
writer. Both he and his wife agree
that Lincoln "is the best place
in the world and its residents are
the best friends." Cunningham
plans to pursue his career here.
Cunningham plans to soecialize
in writing on international af
fairs a subject for which he will
be well qualified because of his
many army experiences.
He entered the first World war
in 1917, as "Captain Cunning
ham," served as a machine gun
officer and received the rank of
major at the end of the war In
1919-1920, he was the first Amer
ican officer to attend the French
war college in Paris.
In the time between the two
wars, Cunningham alternated be
tween his architecture work and
his reserve army service.
In 1940, he again began sew
ing the armed forces as a lieuten
ant colonel. This time, he
