Nebraska's Campus Antics Captivate
'Nosey9 Earthworm During Warm Days
The conquering earthworm
came out of his hole today to
take a short peck at the noisy
world above him. Things were
really humming so the little an
imal that cultivates three square
inches of ground per day started
to look around.
. He found a lot of happy peo
ple running around campus en
joying the first real spring day
Nebraska has seen since Decem
ber. Most of them were carrying
their coats and a few of the
pessimists had umbrellas.
Cars Tear Around
An unusually lare number of
cars were tearing around the
streets, many of them with the
tops down. The little worm won
dered if it were Saturday, for
no one seemed to be going into
any of the buildings for classes.
All at once he heard someone
mentioning his name and he
looked up to see who would be
talking about him, a mere worm.
A feminine voice was saying,
"That low living worm giving
a test on a day like this." He
knew then ihat it wasn't him
they were talking about, but one
of the teachers that sat in the
classes. He could feel a blush
covering his entire slimy, grimy
body as the voice went on to
describe the instructor.
Relatives Modesty
Of course the little worm part
way agreed with her. After all,

NU Student Loan Fund
Offers Aid to 'Broke'
By Art Becker
Are you bothered with in
omnia? Do your dreams develop
into nightmares about those de
moniac bills at the end of the
month? Hm-m-m-m???
If your trouble is financial, and
if your friends are reluctant to
gap you a "ten-spot" once in a
while, take heed. Probably you
have not heard about it, but the
University has a fund just for
you that is, if you can meet a
few requirements.
This student loan fund is com
posed of 64 memorial funds do
nated to the University for the
purpose of enabling and encour
aging students to remain in
Two Forms
Loans are made to students in
two forms, emergency loans and
unlimited loans.
.. An emergency loan is made for
amounts up to $50 for a period
of six months or less. The larger
loans (unlimited type) require a
co-signer who will be responsble
Yale President
Fears Military
Yale University President A
Whitney Griswold warra that
channelling the nation's youth
into the armed forces instead of
college may be playing into the
hands ol the communists.
' Writing in the April issue of
the Atlantic, Dr. Griswold says
that "in the emergency, we
talk of college education as a
ron-essential and an expend
able." But, ha adds, while the United
States is neglecting high educa
tion, Eussia is making use of it
as a strategic asset, citing evi
dence that medical, scientific and
technological institutes in Soviet
Eussia are full and their enroll
ment increasing.
, Discussing possible remedial
measures, Dr. Griswold points out
that it may be necessary to short
en the time consumed in high
school Md college. Although op
posing "acceleration," he sug
gests instead improving second
airy education.
- Helse urges colleges and uni
versities to cooperate with the
United States Armed Forces in
stitute in offering extension
courses for men on military service.
Losses Threaten
Swins Raisers
A severe outbreak of baby pig
diseases has hit Nebraska herds
this spring. Dr. Carl Olson, jr.,
head of the University animal
pathology and hygiene department,-M
He . said the department has
been doing research on the dis
eases for the past several years.
There have been severe losses
this spring p to nearly all of
the pigs farrowed in some herds.
One farmer in eastern Nebraska
lost 300 out of 500 farrowed.
. Dr. Olson said symptoms of the
maladies vary, but vomiting and
diarrhea seem to be the most
common. The symptoms are usu
ally followed by death. The cause,
he said, U unknown, but pos
sibly a virus is responsible. Ex
periment stations over the mid
west ara attempting to find meth
ods of controling the diseases.
- University scientists have an
opportunity to study the diseases
close at band. An outbreak oc
curred recently among newly far
rowed pigs at the institution's
swine research center. Many re
ports of disease outbreaks are re
ceived by University staff mem
bers from swine raisers outstate.
for the loan if it is not paid when
it becomes due.-
The size of these loans and the
time limit for their repayment is
determined by a seven member
committee after a short interview
with the applicant. The interest
rates are 2 per cent while the
borrower is in school, 4 per cent
after graduation, and 6 per cent
if the loan is not paid when due
No interest is charged if repay
ment is made within one month
after the loan is made.
Size of Fund
Since loans are constantly be
ing made and payments are re
ceived nearly every day on the
outstanding loans, the exact size
of the fund is seldom the same
from one day to the next. The
latest figures show approximately
$184,226 in total loan funds for
the use of the combined colleges
of the Lincoln campus.
In addition to this, there is
$47,150 in a fund for the use of
medical college students at
Due to various stipulations and
restrictions on the use of the
funds as set up by the donor, only
$153,222 is included as actually
available for loaning to students
on the Lincoln campus. Of this
amount, about $30,000 is now out
in the form of loans to students.
The total loan funds is further
broken down into funds available
to students in the various colleges
as specified by the donor. Ap
proximately $81,000 of the total
fund comprises a general fund
which is available to all students.
Amount Loaned
The amount of money loaned
from the fund has been con
stantly increasing during the past
few years.
During the fiscal year from
July 1, 1949 to June 30, 1950,
$18,302 was loaned to students.
Within the period from July 1,
1950 to March 31, 1951. 213 loans
with a total value of $26,138 have
been made. Of the latter figure,
more than $16,000 was loaned
during the first three months of
The only fixed requirements a
student must meet to receive a
loan are a 4.0 grade average and
a record of good standing at the
dean's office.
Freshmen are not advised to
atinly for help from the student
loan fund, because the main pur
pose of the loans is not to help
students get started in college, dui
to help them stay in school until
they finish.

If you are one of these haughty
individuals whose pride keeps
him struggling under the pres-1
sure of weighty bills, remember
this: a student loan is not a debt;
it is an investment in education
one of the best investments an
individual can make.
it had been one of those pro
fessors who had aken his uncle
and three brothers away to one
of the buildings. He had heard
later that the nice little students
in the classes had been forced to
cut open the worms. And the little
worm had been so sad to think
of his uncle because he was the
modest type, anyway.
By this time, things were be
ginning to quiet down, so the lit
tle worm decided to go home. He
dug a hole and crawled back into
the cool dark earth where he
lived. He had no sooner gotten
there when a friend of his
squirmed in to see him. The
friend had been out of town and
had dropped into see his cousin
on the wav back to Lincoln.
Hill Activities
The cousin lived out north of
town on a hill. They knew a
great many people in common
because for some unknown rea
son, the students were always
going out to the hill where the
cousin worm lived.
The cousin worm had lived a
dangerous life out on the hill.
Whenever he came to the surface
flying missies fell all about him.
He heard the people call them
The friend said that the little
cousin worm was planning on
moving to Lincoln to be near
them and away from the students.
He knew that they were supposed
to be most numerous on the cam
pus, but from what he had seen,
he doubted it. Then too, now
adays there were more people
with blue uniforms that spent a
lot of time out at his hill and he
didn't like them nearly as well
as the students because they just
sort of crept upon him and never
said too much.
Consul Companionship
The little earthworm was glad
to hear that his cousin would be
living near him, as he was very
lonely since his uncle and three
brothers left.
The two earthworms munched
contentedly on a piece of dirt un
til it was time for the other to
crawl on home. .
They bade each other goodbye
and then the little earthworm
curled himself up and went to
sleep. He had experienced a hard
and trying day and as one of
the few thousand college worms,
it was his duty to always be at his
best every morning.

A University faculty member is
the author of a new book which
throws new light on the revolu
tion, George Washington and an
obscure British-born general.
He is John Richard Alden, pro
fessor of history. Dr. Alden's
book is "General Charles Lee:
Traitor or Patriot?" which will be
released April 23 by the Louisiana
State university press.
General Lee is perhaps best
known as the general whom
Washington is said to have called
a "damned poltroon" at the Battle

presents evidence which proves
that Lee's judgment and conduct
at Monmouth were creditable.
However, historians have gen-
jerally re,vrded Lee' as a traitor
because he was court-martialed
by young officers currying the
favor of Washington.
Dr. Alden shows how this was
an unjust decision on the part of
the court-martial and also points
out some of Lee's contributions to
the American cause which have
also been overlooked through the
rectly responsible for the suc
cessful repulsion of the British at
Charleston, though historians have
usually given the credit for that
victory to the South Carolina
military leaders.
Dr. Alden is a graduate of the
University of Michigan and has
taught at the University of Chi
cago and Michigan during sum
mer terms.
An earlier book by Dr. Alden
