THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Wednesday, May 2, 1951
Last week, a record-breaking
the University was approved by the Nebfaska
legislature's budget committee.
It is very heartening news for most of us who
had watched with Intense interest the budget de
bate which could easily determine the fate or our
Yet, we are not shouting for joy, because we
know it isn't all over. Even though the "grant"
was more than we had expected, it must still be
anroved by the legislature and the governor
be "ore anything is final.
We hope they come through.
The fact that the budget approved was still shy
$1 million, the University's request, didn't disap
piint us too much. After all, the grant exceeded
the governor's figures by $1.5 million. And it also
exceeded the amount received for the last biennium
by $4M: million.
By now, the "powers that be surely must real
ize that these abnormal times which the Univer
There are still UMOC contests going on at
campuses all over the country, but we think that
the winner of the UMOC contest at the University
of North Carolina has about the best deal of all
of the winners.
The Ugliest man at UNC gets a date with the
May Queen of 1951, plus $50 worth of prizes. The
prizes will range all the way from a T-bone steak
tiinner to a free beer party. The ugly man will
also receive gift certificates from 14 local mer
chants. It really pays to be ugly at North Carolina.
From Iowa State Daily's Ballyrot (again) comes
the following poem that expresses the sentiments
of many Nil students who have ever driven cars
around campus. It goes like this:
"Roaring, grinding, grating gears,
Driving "round the clock for years,
.' Tie-up here, jam-up there,
Students dashing everywhere,
Stop and go, go and stop,
Churning windmill student cop,
Congratulations are due to "Buck" Keister who
went all-out last Saturday to win the "Ail-Around
Cowboy" title at the Ag college rodeo. Jim Peters,
r ner-up. did a mighty fine job of putting on
iow foe flie crowd, too.
"umrs have been flying
a ni that the rodeo didn't to
r ' ' iuite as smoothly as some of
i crowd hoped for. Those who
t zn't satisfied should realize
t" -t these fellows do not have
a -hance to practice potting on
a -how before that day and the
a -ial running of the event is
qifte new to some of them.
If the authorities that exist!
could be persuaded that a pre
liminary run would help immensely, I'm sure the
rodeo would move along much faster. Not only
would this give the rodeo club officers some
indication of how the whole thing would fit to
gether but would provide a "proving grounds"
for all of the contestants and the real show would
be more of a contest But, all in all, 1 think the
boys and girls put on a very good type of enter
tainment. Everybody heaved a sigh f relief when College

Competition figures to a large extent among
our institutions of higher learning, and the Uni
versity is no exception. We can't expect to splurge
like other schools blessed with rich endowments
and lavish tax funds, which pay for beautiful
campus architecture and faculties which list Nobel
prize winners and geniuses. But we need not drop
out of the race, either.
The budget committee saw good reasoning in
the University arguments that if a substantial in
crease was denied, then taxpayers, subsequently,
could expect an inadequate faculty staff, and the
dropping of progressive research programs and
necessary enlargement of present facilities.
In a sense, too, we are competing with our
selves and past records. University achievements
have served notice that the University is pretty
hard to beat. We would hate someday to send our
children to some other school, because the Uni
ersity's living expenses were curtailed. k.a.
Can't park here, can't park there,
Can't park almost everywhere;
Finally stop, leave the crate,
Then for miles preambulate.
Students springing: down the street,
Many empty stalls so neat,
He who parks will pay his fines.
Cant change the law with all those signs.
The golfer's even victimized.
His purpose to be exercised,
And yet he parks, no need to hide it.
Not miles from the course, but right beside it;
He loses out, you might surmize,
And STUDENTS get the exercise.
And so, you see, most everyone,
Because of how it's being run,
Says, Tarking here is such a pity

University Student Develops
Test to Detect
A university physiology stu

"frog test" to detect pregnancy
Hugh Phillips, who is working
on his doctor's degree, said he
now is able to make the tests in
two hours by using frogs. Tests
with the use or rabbits take a
day or more.
Phillips said he developed the
simplification as a hobby. And it
works. He has made the tests for
many physicians in the city, and
out of 117 tests was correct 115
times. That's a batting average
of 83.3 percent
Frogs Death Rate High
Many people in the business
have used frogs for the test, but
the death rate among the am
phibians was high. When the
male frog is injected with the
urine of pregnant women it some
times kills him. Those used rab
bits for the test usually kill the
animal, too. And rabbits are ex-'
