Jury Finds
Three Guitly
Of Espionage
Two men and a woman were
found guilty of stealing Amer
ica's A-bomb secret in behalf of
communist Russia and faced the
death penalty.
The verdict was announced aft
er almost seven hours and 15
minutes of deliberation by a fed
eral court jury of 11 men and
one woman.
Foreman Vincent J. Lebonitte
pronounced the verdicts one by
"We the jury find Julius Ro
senburg guilty as charged."
"We the jury find Ethel Rosen
bury guilty as charged."
"We the jury find Morton So
bell guilty as charged."
The trio were pronounced guil
ty of conspiracy to commit espion
age in war-time which is punish
able by death or lesser penalty.
Federal Judge Irving R. Kaugman
will sentence them Thursday,
April 5.
The government put limits on
grocers' profits in a move which
will mean some food price Toll
backs and some increases. The
new OPA-type regulations put
price controls on about 60 per cent
of the -nation's $32 billion food
The regulations cover ten thou
sand wholesale food suppliers and
560 thousand retail food stores.
Price Stabilizer Michael Disalle
predicted that price rollbacks
would outweigh the increases.
The food order issued by the
office of price stabilization affects
grocers selling canned and frozen
fruits and vegetables, butter,
packaged cheese, baby foods, co
coa, breakfast cereals, coffee and
tea, flour, jams and jellies, lard,
mayonnaise and salad dressings,
shortenings, canned meats and
canned fish.
American tanks and infantry
men punched out a three and one
half mile gain on the west central
Korean front. South Koreans on
the east coast drove seven miles
deep into North Korea.
Thursday's biggest gain was
made by British, Australian and
Canadian troops who swept across
hills and torrents northwest of
Kapyong, on the main Seoul
Chunchon highway. They gained
three and one-half miles.

Dvorak's Symphony "From the
New World" to compositions by
contemporary American com
posers. Harp Solo 1
Highlights of the concert will
be a harp solo by Bonnie Weddell
and a trumpet octet.
In the symphony "From the
New World," a strong folk-song
flavor pervades in many of the
melodies that Dvorak uses. Said
the composer of this symphony, "I
tried only to write in the spirit of
national American melodies."
Nevertheless, the work is col
ored by a nostalgic longing for
his native Bohemia.

Dispute Between Kingdoms
The case centers around the
Great Southern Mining and Smel
ting company which is centered
in the ox-bow between the two
kingdoms. Dodge City of Katavia
and Cochran Park of Ionia are
located across the river from one
another. Cochran Park is twice
as far way from the smelting
works as Dodge City.
Ionian nationals own a con
trolling interest in the smelting
company. Other stock is owned
by persons in other nations. The
smelting company discharges j
many sulphur fumes and other j
gases that would be detrimental j
to inhabitants at Dodge City. The j
Katavian government has been
petitioning the Ionian government
to do something to remedy this
situation, but nothing has been
Bad Feeling
Bad feeling arises between the
two nations over this dispute. A
Katavian National joined a hunt
ing party of Ionians and Katav

and the nationalist member ad
mitted to the Ionians that he
was a member of a sabotage
party. The Ionians turned him
over to their police and he was

Democracy Voc Ed Prof
Home is the basic unit of de
mocracy, yet scant attention has
been paid to making the "bal
ance" wheel of the family con
scious of Our democratic heritage.
So believes Miss Florence Cor
bin associate professor of voca
tional aducation. Says she:
"The balance wheel of the
family is the housewife. Yet our
educational system has not made
much of an effort to link her
household job with our heritage
of freedom."
Miss Corbin believes there is a
veiy vital link between the
housewife and not only attitudes
she develops toward our form of
government, but also her chil
dren. To help future housewives
develop a stronger relationship
between homemaking and a way
of life, the University vocational
education department has devel
oped a new course of instruction
to achieve this goal.
The course is offered Univer
sity women who will teach home
making courses in Nebraska high
To emphasize the point that a
denwratic nation develops only
by practicing democracy in daily
living, the course urges home
making teachers to:

'"Junior and senior officers

Schmidt said, "but the circum-

are: 1) to put on a dance of

a large amount of money; (2)
the University hasn't any funds
