wasn't expecting this type of greeting from the usually cheerful
waiters. After being insulted for 10 minutes, his waitress ex
plained the purpose behind her manner. "Anything for a Rag

Placement for Grad Students
A friendly smile and a high re
gard for students and their inter
ests typify Dr. William F. Swind
ler, director of the University
school of journalism.
As head of the journalism de
partment, Dr. Swindler not only
teaches students the finer points
of journalism during their respec
tive University careers, but he is
instrumental in the placement of
students after their graduation.
Career Began in 1933
Dr. Swindler has 'always been
interested in the field of journal
ism. A native of St. Louis, Mo.,
Dr. Swindler obtained his first
"newspaper" experience in gram
mar school when he was appoint
ed news editor of the school's pa
per. His actual newspaper career
commenced in 1933 when he be
came a reporter for the St. Louis
He then became a publicity
writer for the Washington uni
versity news bureau from 1934
to 1935 From 1936 to 1938, Dr.
Swindler was an editorial writer
for the St. Louis Star-Times, and
from 1938 to 1940, he was a cor
respondent for the St. Louis Post
During his newspaper career.
Dr. Swindler interviewed such
celebrities as Bill Tilden, Helen
Hayes, Henry Wallace and civic
officials from various states.
When asked which category of
affected. Dr. Swindler replied
celebrities were usually the least
that the politicians were less like
ly to be "stuffed shirts," while the
athletes were most likely the ones
to have the blown-up egos.
Bere Dr. Swindler came to
tie University, he had been grad
uate assistant at Washington
University in 1935 and an instruc
tor in journalism at the Univer
sity of Missouri from 1938 to 1940.
He then became an assistant pro
fessor and journalism department
head at the University of Idaho
from 1940 to 1944. Dr. Swindler
remained at the University of
Idaho until 1945. He then came
to the University of Nebraska to
become head of the journalism
Active fn Journalism Honoraries
Dr. Swindler's campus activi
ties do not keep him from being
an active member of many jour
nalism honoraries. He is national

tary of Kappa Tau Alpha, a mem
ber of Sigma Delta Chi. past na
tional secretary of the American

nalism and a member of the

During his directorship at the
University, Dr. Swindler has
helped institute a new senior
course for selected journalism
students. The course, Investiga
tive Methods of Editing, shows
the students through lectures and
discussions with experts in vari
ous fields the progress of these
fields within the last fifty years.
This course gives journalism stu-
ls the opportunity to learn of
advancements in other fields
which often proves useful to them
in their journalistic careers. Dr.
Swindler believes that a good
'.urnalist must not only have an
f client knowledge of journal-
m, but he must also have a well
rounded education and be aware

"Take all the political science
you can, and then take as much

What do we see? Well, that's
anybody's guess. The enslaved
student was the victim of some
joker's brainstorm. While the in
tellectual had been drawing logi
cal conclusions to his problems,
it seems as though his roommate
or best friend had been exercis
ing his muscles in jumping to
decisions in the opposite direction.
At this rate, our unassuming
friend could take on anyone of a
variety of appearances and still
get by. Soaking wet? Face
i"blood" streaked with catsup?
Rolling in cracker crumbs? Shak
ing with rage over a torn sheet?
You name it!
However, when funsters get
started, these little incidents seem
tame compared to a few of their
more "stupendous" creations.
With this species, the motto is
"Anything goes!" so long as it
provides laughs. It has come to
their attention, though, that a
few of their schemes have back
fired in more than one big ex
Nevertheless, they go on about
their merry way, decorating the
faces of their sleeping friends
with water colors and blithely
sprinkling tons of soapflakes in
the hallways. Scattering torn-up
newspaper and rolling trash bar
rels down the corridors are
among their pet tricks as well.
In the racket-making line, it has

finity to tampering with cosmet

posely placed at the foot of some
unknowing occupant's door. Then
too, that "Pepsodent smile" turns
to a shine (or is it grime?) when
the white pasty substance is "di
luted" with shampoo.
Food is the prankster's meat
too. In this field, he finds possi
bilities unlimited. Again, his im
agination runs wild wth scents
when limburger cheese comes to
mind. He takes great delight in
smearing it very artistically over
radiators, light bulbs and most
any other object that would gen
erate enough heat to make the
stuff melt. And, if he has a band
of loyal followers, it is sometimes
possible to divert the cook's at
tention long enough to add a lit
tle "color" food coloring, that is
to the evening meal. Numbers
are also effective when it comes
to absconding with all or part
of an intended dinner.
Indeed, there is a long list of

In these statistics, however, the
farmer mortality rate is too low
and that of the businessmen too
high, Dr. Edgar Z. Palmer, chair
man of the department of busi
ness research said. He explained
that the farm population has de
creased , since the 1940 census,
making it too large a base for
the 1949 death statistics used. The
rate among those in business for
themselves is probably higher be
cause of their relatively high
average age, he explained.
