Editorial Comment
Student Plea . . .
V'v The fate of University appropriation is In good
hands. The budget committee of the Legislature,
.charmaned by Sen. Arthur Carmody, sat back
in their chairs and listened, sympathetically, to the(
plea of seven University students a plea for in
creased funds to build a better University.
The seven, representing a cross-section of the
student body, appeared before the group to speak
for the student, on their own incentive without
prompting from school officials. They presented
views of students from, different colleges agri
culture, engineering, business administration,
teachers, journalism and speech.
For approximately an hour and a half the -senators
heard such problems as instructor's wage
-ccic, icxsJequate facilities, poor buildings- and
and many others. To these problems the Solons
listened and punctuated each testimony with per
tinent questions relating to the certain department.
After being attentive to student questions con
cerning budget plans for some 90 minutes the
committee relaxed again to listen to a voflcerous
15 minute tirade aaginst the University, state gov
ernment and democracy. The life of a legislator
is not all a life of lobby parties, etc. Under the
public hearing ruling they must receive all who
wish to testify, whether student or a member of
a tax-payers league .
The general impression carried away by students
at the meeting was this: The members of the
budget committee are definitely interested in doing
the right thing for the University. So interested
that they ate willing to relinquish some of their
time to hear the gripes of the student. They seem
anxious to explore the problem from all levels
administrative and students ,
When the committee submits its bill for con
sideration by the Legislature we may be sure it
will cover the needs as seen honestly and sincerely
by the committee. J. w.
Underlying Benefits .
It would be startling news someday if the
USSR would suddenly agree with western pow
ers on important policy issues, with no stipula
tions. Unfortunately that news is not being made
even in the University's model United Nations
political committee or its two sub committees. The
USSR, the United States and Great Britain are
constantly at each others throat. The USSR and
Great Britain line up against the U. S., although
for different reasons, for admitting the People's
Republic of China to the UN. The U. S. and Great
Britain insist, although in diplomatic differing de
grees, upon branding Red China as aggressors in
Korea, despite Russia's protest.
It's all pretty much of a muddle. But to add
to glamour, the Arab-Asian block is following its
established party line of peace advocating, at any
means, which also throws a wrench in the works.
That block has quite a little voting power.
When one would look at the conference, the
first impression might be that the sole accomplish
ment was rehashing something already discussed
in the UN. The unique part of the conference,
however, is: first, new ideas are being introduced
and formed; and secondly, even if ideas have been
brought forth in the actual United Nations, this
maybe the first time University students have
"hashed" them in their minds. This may be a spark
which Ignites a more conscious interest in world
affairs. The UN conference .actually an educa
tional project, strives at discussion of two major
topics the admission of new members and the
Korean situation. Any delegate who speaks at the
conference must have spent some time, prior to
the meeting, studying backgrounds and facts on
the particular question. That's where the inside
value of the conference comes. To, speak intelli
gently about a country, as many nations have, the
delegate must have acquired background in some
manner. In this way, only, the conference may be
called successful.
The library at Love library was somewhat
perturbed before the conference because the Unit
ed Nations information on the table that had been
especially set up for the conference, had not been
used. She therefore saw no use in setting up the
table. Now that meetings have started and the
data has been read (for proof it no longer is in
neat stacks) perhaps it will .convince her that
University students are benefiting from the com
piled information.
A lot of preparation may be done at the last
minute, but it's better than going through an en
tire school year without any time being aware
of what happens in the international organization
for the maintenance of peace and security, the
United Nations. You know, many believe it to be
the only hope for lasting peace. j. k.

Last Monday was the opening of the second
nine weeks of broadcasting at the University radio
station. To those of you who only listen to KNUS
it may mean nothing. However to the students and
the faculty at the studio it means a change of the
radio section staff. Every nine weeks the staff at
the station is changed so that all people who are
studying radio may get a chance to participate in
all phases of radio activity.
New program director for
the last nine weeks of this se
mester is Lois Nelson. Lois has'
been at the station so long that
her capability for the position
of program director is beyond
reproach. Assisting Nelson will
be Wayne Wells. Bob Asky is
the new chief announcer. Asky's
assistants are Dick Carlson and
Ev Anderson who will have
charge of all women shows.
Continuity head for the remain
der of the semester will be Jim
Riordan. Claire Evans and Bob
Ross will help Jim in the task of seeing that all of
the shows are written in a proper order.
One section head that did not change is the
music department. Once again Jan Crilly will
head this part of radio broadcasting.
Sports announcer will be Arv Christensen. Arv
is also a sports announcer for KFOR.
Promotion for shows that can be heard over
KNUS will be under the supervision of Don
Thackery and Nancy Porter. Nancy hinted that in
the future this section will have great news for
the entire campus. The section that is charged
with keeping the programs abreast with news will
be held by Jean Fenster arid Leonard Kehl.
Don't forget for program listening at its best
listen to your University radio station, KNUS.
This week's presentation by "Authors of the
Ages" will be Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Bot
tle Imp." This is one of Stevenson's famous story's
that is loaded with mystery and intrigue. It is the
story of a bottle. Who ever has the will have good
fortune all of his life. The bottle has music charms
that will grant the owner his every wish.
However, if one dies with the bottle in his po
session he will land in the wrong place after death.
Of course the way to relieve oneself of the bottle
is to sell it before death. It isn't the right thing to
do to make a profit on the bottle so it must be sold
for less than it was purchased for. The final blow
is when a man bought the bottle of one cent. It is
impossible to give the bottle to the next person,
it must be sold.
' What would you do in a case like that? Why
not tune toKFOR tonight at 9 p.m. and hear what
happens as "Authors of the Ages" present "The
Bottle Imp." Remember that if you can't hear the
program tonight, then you can hear it over KNUS
at 3:30 p.m. Monday.

the Independent Student Asso
ciation the Interim-Council was
appointed by the Student Council j
to serve from the last ISA of-'

J. Bristol Turner was ap
pointed to head the committee.
At the meeting Monday they will
discuss plans for operating a car
pool for independents. Under the
plan a student going to another
city would leave his name on file
in the council office. A person
also wishing transportation to the
same place would have his name
on file too. The office would co
ordinate the two so that traveling
would be expidited.
A book pool may also be
worked out if sufficient interest
is aroused. In which case the
Interim office would only get a
prospective seller and buyers to
gether and advise them on exist

Because the sun's in our eyes
when the alarm goes off at seven,
because convertibles are shedding
their tops, because we've seen
lots of robins and green grass
and because fraternity fellows
are playing catch in the streets,
we've decided it's about time to
give you gals a preview of what
you're likely to be wearing this
spring, both for school and for
It seems that we gals have de
elded to forget that boyish look
that was so popular last year and
to come . Into our own with all
sorts of frills and froths which
will make us look truly feminine
this spring.
Skirts And Blouses.
Right now, when we still need
a coat for our eight o'clock's, tha
main stress is on skirts and
blouses but, hero too, we've added
something new. Blouses of every
shade in the sun are combined
with "left-over" winter skirts.
The retail stores grew a whole
meadow of spring flowers during
the early part of this year and
now these ire appearing at the
throats of crisp cotton blouses to
add a new and exciting touch of
When cotton dresses start doU
ting the campus, we predict our
young man's fancy will turn to
thoughts of love, and why not?
Skirts will be full and billowy
and waists' will be snug. ThQ
materials are irresistible sheers of
lawn, organdy and cool cottons
that don't look at all like cot
tons. Sun Backs Good
Sun backs are still good, but of
course, you'll be wearing tha
bolero's for a cover-up at school.
We've also seen a return ap
pearance of the good old stand
by, the golfer. These will be
seen with slight variations which
will add that feminine touch.
As far as color goes this spring,
it's up to you. The emphasis has
been placed, to a certain extent,
on lilac and burnt orange but
both pastels and dark colors are
good because the accessories you
will want will add the necessary
bit of contrast needed.
Shoes Bare For Dress
Shoes will definitely be bare
this spring with lots of straps and
buckles. You may want to wear
these for dress but we find you
still can't be without your steady
loafers and mocassins.
For strictly playtime wear
you'll be wanting shorts made of
denim and arrowhead material.
We've seen both long and short
shorts so take your choice and
wear what's best for you. Topper's
for shorts are delightful this year
and are inspired by the sea. Cot
ton knit shirts with turtle necks
and the big over-all jackets head
the parade. Speaking of heads,
be sure yours is covered with
one of those silly little concoc
tion which might well be worn by
a beachcomber. Or better yet,

Yes, clothes this spring are
just for the woman and, what
ever you choose we know you'll
have fun whether you stay in
class or cut a few for a picnic.

Say, fellow stoodents, have you ever thought of
throwing rotten eggs and tomatoes at your com
mencement speakers, but then decided it would not
be the proper thing to do?
If you ever have, then go to the University
of Glasgow in Scotland, where egg-throwing at
commencements is the proper thing to do.
Time magaiine states that "at the University
of Glasgow (founded in 1451), students have been
throwing things for generations, have made public
uproar an honored tradition."
When Glasgow's new rector began making his
acceptance speech during the last commencement
he was greeted with a shower of 'overripe toma
toes, firecrackers, toilet paper and bursting flour
Students added to the general hubbub of the
occasion by stretching a rope across the auditorium
and doing mid-air acrobatics during the com
mencement One student even ran across the stage
in a pair of long underwear while bearing a
After the commencement was all over, and
remnants of rotten eggs and tomatoes could still
be seen on the rector's robes, he commented, "One
of the liveliest installations I've ever seen."
When I first laid my eyes on the 'College Eye'
from the Iowa State Teachers college at Cedar
Falls, Iowa, I was nearly blinded. They had print
ed the April Fools issue of their newspaper on
blaring yellow paper.
I am wondering: is this what they mean by the
term "Yellow journalism"?
Speaking of the College Eye, here is a joke I
pilfered from that paper.
"Why are there more automobile accidents
than train wrecks?"
"Must be because the engineer isn't always
making love to the fireman."
