Of Reactivating
Mayor Victor E. Anderson of
Lincoln said Thursday that, de
spite contradicting reports, the
plans for reactivating the Lincoln
air base are not definite.
The city has a 99 year lease
with the air force for the base
and any reactivating action, An
derson said, would have to be
gin with talks with the city. So
far the city has not been con
tacted. According to earlier reports,
the base was to have been tem
porarily reactivated. The air
national guard unit stationed at
the field now and to be activated
April 1, would, the reports said,
be trained at the base.
NU Students Included
T. J. Thompson, dean of stu
dent affairs, said that approxi
mately 60 students from uni
versities and colleges from within
a 100 mile area, about half of
whom' are from the University,
are included in the activated unit.
If the unit stays at the base
after activation, the members liv

stay at home. Housing will be

Marilyn Moomey and Nancy
Button will vie for presidency of
AWS in the all women's election
All coeds are eligible to vote for
the AWS president and board
members. The election will be at
Ellen Smith hall from 9 a. m. to
6 p. m. and in the Ag Union from
9 a. m. to 5 p. m.
Miss Moomey was in charge of
this year's Coed Follies for AWS,
on the Union board, an Alpha
Lambda Delta and in Arts and
Sciences college. She is affiliated
with Pi Beta Phi.
Miss Moomey believes "a point
system is necessary but it should
be stringent enough to allow any
coed to work up to her full ca
pacity." She would also like to
see the house representation
strengthened so houses would feel
closer to AWS.
Miss Button's Activities.
Miss Button is a music major.
She is secretary of AWS, on the
WAA sports board, a Madrigal
singer and a member of Delta
Omicron and Alpha Chi Omega.
Miss Button would like to stim
ulate more interest in AWS so co
eds will be more familiar with
AWS rules, in order to prevent
unnecessary campuses. Miss But
ton is "in favor of a point system,
but if a coed can maintain a high
enough accumulated average she
should be allowed more points."
The runner-up will serve as
AWS vice president.
Junior nominees from which
five women will be chosen are:
Mary Jane Darnell, Marilyn
Clark, Carol DeWitt, Sharon

found for the others.
Those who live at Huskerville
need not worry about being evac
uated from their homes without
notice, Anderson said. The army
has promised the mayor that they
will give residents "every con
sideration." It seems likely, Anderson
added, that reactivation would
entail the evacuation of Husker
ville by private citizens.
Stand-By Basis
The base might revert to stand
by basis if more permanent
training facilities are found else
where the statement from Wash
ington said.
At Offut air force base in
Omaha, headquarters of the Stra
tegic Air command, under whose
jurisdiction the reactivated base
would be, a spokesman said the
field might "possibly' 'become an
operational training base.
If this action were taken, a SAC
combat wing would be stationed
there to train new wings. The
program would . continue until
SAC grows to undisclosed
strength. The parent unit would
remain permanently at the base.
