' Squeaks'
Dr. Hanson Shaves Van Dyke
In Favor of Jacquet Goatee
By Atoysius Gerp
The Fire House five plus two have just proved
a new record that is a cinch to break all exist
ing record sales. The tune, "The Firebird Suite,"
by Stravinsky, has so much strength and bal
ance to it that all music lovers will enjoy to the
end this rendition that the seven do. The first
movement is opened with a surprise. Harper
Goff plays a beautiful banjo solo that is done
in true classical style.
In the second part the entire group blend to
gether to form the background for a tuba solo
played by that noted tubist Edward Penner. The
third and final movement is a wonderful ar
rangement of clarinet and piano with another
This time the solo is by Danny Alguire and
his cornet. For a song that is done by the men
who can do it, hear "the Firebird Suite" as done
by the Fire House Five plus Two.
Word has just been received that Dr. Howard
Hanson, noted music composer and lecturer has
shaved off his Van Dyke in favor of the goatee.
According to the press dispatch, Dr. Hanson has
done this to throw off the false feeling that he
has for classical music.
From now on it is nothing: but the modern
progressive music for him. Although Dr. Hanson
agrees that the music of the old masters is pas
sible, that music can not compare, can not hoM
a candle, to the modern progressive music of
Stan Kenton, Illinois Jacquet and Dizzy Gillispie.
In fact, the goatee that Hanson is now sport
ing is a direct copy of Jacquet's. The complete
change that the Doctor has made can be summed
up in his own words. "From now on I am a gone
cat. It will bebop and nothing else."

Happy April Fool's Day to all you fools who
are going to read this column today.
With spring in the air all over the country,
students at campuses all over the country are
finding it difficult to concentrate on their book
larnin'; as a result, purgatory has broke loose
on many of these schools of higher education.
Dearie, do you remember when the "Rag" told
you the lurid details of the case of the missing
Daily Northwestern newspapers at Northwest

or less, at your own University. Usually I print
only stolen goods from other papers, but I feel
that in the public interest, I should report this
to you. . . The bold Corn Shucks staff is plan
ning on stealing not only Daily Nebraskans, but
the Daily Nebraskan staff as well.
From now on, the Corn Shucks will be printed
daily, and the "Rag" will be printed six times
a year.
Now who was it who said that any change

"The story boils down to this," stated the sen

seeems that the regents went on a beer binge
instead of attending their weekly board meet

cept, the chancellor felt left out and hurt when
he found that there wasn't enough beer for him."
The chancellor has appointed new regents al

member of an Oshkosh family high in the life
of the university.

garb for the cool days on the campus. The classic dark skirt is
made of men's weight flannel and is 21 inches above the side
walk. The contrasting light blue parka and pink fuzzy-wuzzy mit
tens are worn to protect the coed in her defense battles against

weight hose keep her from getting her legs dirty on "dirty sock

thing like this.
"The red heat wave has washed
so many students up, that before
long there will be no one left,"
commented one of the more pro
phetic graduate students recently.

A. T. Anderson Gives Report
On False Russian Claims
The Russians did not win the
las war single-handed.
This was revealed in a report by
Alben T. Anderson, following five
years of research on the subject.
In his report. Anderson savs
that the Russians did not invent
the sewing machine, liquor, wom
en, Hadacol, the electric light,
the revolving door, reducing ma
chines, automobiles or kitty cars,
as was claimed in a report by the
Russian press, Pravda.
Anderson spent years pouring
over repo-ls from both sides of
the Iron Curtain. He spent hours
interviewing Sen. Joseph Mc
Carthy, Sen. Dudley LeBlanc and
others to determine the truth of
the Russian statements.
"Such reports are vicious and
untrue," Anderson said. "It ap
pears that the Russian government
nas lied irom the start to finish
about its achievements. It would
almost appear that the govern
ment has lied from start to fin
ish." First Publication
This is undoubtedly the first pa
per to publish the dramatic story
of Anderson's adventures while
he carried on his research from
both sides of the Iron Curtain.
He spent two months learning
to manipulate the acetalyne torch.
At the end of this period he was
able to sear a hole in the Iron
Curtain, big enough to take a
push cart through, In less than
five minutes. To escape detection
he immediately welded the open
ing shut again in the spectacularly
short time of seven minutes and
four tenths seconds.
Once through, Anderson donned
the clothes of the laborer and
proceeded along the highways
(dirt pathways) to the various
cities where files on Russian
achievements were kept.
When he had gathered suffici
ent data Anderson changed into
a military uniform and victori
ously strolled through the sliding
door the Russians had made into
the American sector of Germany.
From Germany Anderson
rushed via rubber life raft to the
United States and Morrill hall
where he compared his findings
with those of U of N scientists
(music majors).
However it seems that Ander
son's movements were not entire
ly authorized by the government
and the dean's office. The Student
Council promptly opened an in
vestigation which is broadcast in
ts entrety over a major network
of wheh KNU s afflated.
Anderson has been ill these
last few days and prior to that he
was reluctant to answer the
questions of interrlgator Louis
Pierce. Anderson objected strong
ly to publicity given him by
Frank Jacobs, editor of Corn
shucks, a notoriously known
scandal sheet.
Many believe that all charges
will eventually be dropped but
the investigation nevertheless has
been effective in arousing interest
in Russian claims of inventions.
Because of the proceedings it ap
pears likely that more Russian
firsts will be proved stolen.

Professor Old Grandad Blatz
told state senators that what had
formerly been called "intoxicat
ing" drinks have proved to be as
mild and healthful as milk. The
senate finally voted 649 to 1 for
the measure.
However, the senate has re
ceived many protests against the
bill. University students especially
feel the new bill may pull other
wise innocent freshmen and soph
omores into habits that may ruin
the non-drinking, non-gambling
college community. Rod Smod, in
The Daily Nebraskan, expressed
the feelings of students all over
the campus with his unforgettable
words, "No, never, not this!"
A-Bomb Attack Awaited
Two men and a woman were
found guilty of stealing America's
A-bomb secret in behalf of com
munist Russia.
The trio were congratulated by
the President and commended by
the federal court jury. "They
have done us an outstanding serv
ice," commented the court judge,
Irving R. Kaufman. "With our
new anti-A-bomb spray gun, we
dare Russia to bomb the U.S."
The President stated, "It's about
time Russia got hold of that bomb.
They finally got the brains to dis
cover what we've been trying to
give them for thirty years."
The country will anxiously
await an attack by Russia within
the next few months in "Order that
they may test the new spray gun.
