YVHAItJIIA WANT, JERK? This shocked 'Crib' customer
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

has been about 1 million dollars
in the past 50 years.
These points were stressed by
J. C "Chet" Swinbank, secre

gave his annual report during
the annual meeting of his organ

He said the association has
continued to work with the
University Ag college in expand
ing the use of approved varieties
of crops and other results of
research among farmers.
The association conducted 12
regional wheat improvement
plots during 1950. Samples of
wheat from 982 farms were
grown, studies and classified.
Seventeen counties were repre
sented. The association conducted field
meetings at 13 wheat, oat or
barley demonstration plots thru
out the state. The association

A possible connection between
the amount of money a Nebraska
man earns and his likelihood of
dying is a given year is seen in
tentative figures released Thurs
day by the University department
of business research.
According to rough estimates
based on the 1940 census, profes
sional men have a lower mortal
ity rate than any other occupa
tional group in Nebraska. They
die each year at a rate of 12.9
per thousand. The state average
for all males 16 years and older
is 17 per thousand.
Laborers have the highest
death rate (21.5 per thousand),
followed by farmers, 17.1; trade
workers, 16.6; businessmen, 15.7;
and clerks, 13.3.
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.

Dr. Swindler Finds Job
Placement for Grad Students
A friendly smile and a high re
gard for students and their inter
ests typity 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.
Be ire 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

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
f mm,'j 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

Some female jokers have an af
finity to tampering with cosmet
ics. They love the scent that is
sues forth when a match is ap
plied to cologne or perfume, pur
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

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
opportunities in this world for
the practical as well as the pro
fessional laugh-getter. However,
