That's the way most students

they begin to have coffee or go
to a show or "out with the kids"
and get behind in their studies.
It happens every semester.
Rare indeed is the student who
is not behind in something by the
end of the semester. With an
"I'll do it tomorrow" attitude,
they do the things that are so
much more fun than studying.
Approximately 20 to 23 hours
of the day are spent in serious
study toward the end of the sem
ester by many students. They
spend their daylight hours in the
library ferreting out information.
During the fall semester, this is
much, easier for the average stu
dent to bear. The weather is us

other activities anyway. But in

During the course of studying,
the student usually paces the
room, turns on the radio, reads
the latest magazines and finally
grudgingly sits down to work. He
finds himself unable to concen
trate, and as a result, takes twice
as long to accomplish the "ap
pointed task.

Report Tells
Of Progress
With Crops
Progress in crops research is
outlined in a report of the Uni
versity's Box Butte experiment
farm which has been submitted
to the county commissioners by
Dean W. V. Lambert of the col
lege of agriculture.
Highlights of th document:
Results of 20 years of crop ro
tations have been compiled. It
shows that potato production
after summer fallowing is de
pendable all years. But in half
or more of the year's potato pro
duction following wheat or corn
is uncertain.
More than double the yield of
wheat is usually obtained after
summc fallowing than when
wheat follows wheat.
Experimental Varieties
Approximately 800 lines or va
rieties of potatoes were grown
on the farm in 1950. Eighty of
the most promising were used to
find their suitability for dryland
culture and to develop a supply
of foundation seed potatoes for
later distribution for tests at
other places and later for distri
bution to potato growers.
The Progress variety, devel
oped in this program during the
past 13 years, is rapidly replac
ing Triumph in western Nebraska
because the tubers of the former
have very little scab and do not
crack during harvest.
An experiment is being con
ducted to find the best planting
rate for the new variety and the
best methods of cultivation for
dryland use. During the past
summer facilities at the farm
were used for some technical
studies with potatoes to find fac
tors influencing drouth or heat
endurance, food manufacturing
efficiency of different varieties
of potatoes and relation of type
of plant growth which enables
some varieties to survive hail
damage better than others.
Synthetic Variety
An Iowa corn hybrid No. 4417
has been found to outyield
Dawes No. 2 the local open pol
linated variety that" has been
used at the farm for many years.
Progress is being made In devel
oping a synthetic variety for
northwestern Nebraska because
seed of it would be much
cheaper, Throughout a period of
years an Improved synthetic va
riety might because of the vari
ability within it be more pro
ductive in such a short season
country than hybrids with their
uniform types of plants.
Scientists found that it was
possible to screen out many lines
of wheat that were readily
damaged by hail after two se
vere storms which hit the winter
wheat nursery last summer.
Much information obtained as to
winter hardiness and drouth en
durance is being used as a guide
in maknig selections for later use,
10-Year Test
During a 10-year wheat test
the Cheyenne variety has aver
aged the best yield 32.3 bushels
per acre, Nebred follows with
an average yield of 30.7. Paw
nee and Comanche were next,
both averaging 29.7.
Despite sorghum plantings be
ing destroyed for grain yields by
hail, the Norghum variety, re
covered well and some grain ma
tured. Even with wheat damage by
hull and drouth last summer
there were increased yields after
nitrogen application when the
wheat followed summer fallow.
But there was no increase In
yield when wheat followed until
60 pounds of nitrogen per acre
was applied.
The protein content of wheat
was increased distinctly with ni
trogen fertilizer during the past
two years. Phosphorus applica
tions had lltl'n effect. Mid-September
seeding showed better re
sults than lata August seeding
both years.
, came statements like:
"We want our money for the
last issue back."
"Completely unaware of not
having another issue."
"I'll have nothing to send to my
girl friend in Kansas, for her
"If it was a humor magazine,
I'd probably miss it."
Many other students that we
didn't contact probably have
other comments to say on the
subject. Frank Jacobs, editor of
the magazine would be glad to
knjow any other comments and
will be open for interviews any
afternoon in the Corn Shucks of
Three students and four facul
ty members compose the commit
tee on student publications who
select the staffs.
Leon Pfeiffer, senior member;
Gerald Matzke, junior member;
and Noirnan Rasmussen, sopho
more member, are the student
members of the committee.
The committee is headed by
Roger V. Shumate, political sci
ence professor. William C. Har
per, director of student affairs,
Mary E. Guthrie, home economics
professor; and William J. Arn
old, professor of psychology, are
the faculty board members.
The faculty Senate appoints
the faculty members to the com
mittee. Student members are
selected by the Student Council.
Bruce Nicoll, of the University
public relations department, acts
as liaison officer for the commiti
tee. He works between the mem
bers of student publications and
the committee on publications.
Better Yell Squad
Drive Ends Today
The "Better Yell Squad" cam
paign which started last week
will end today noon.
If any students have ideas of
any sort for new yells, new
stunts, chants or merely general
suggestions the yell squad will
greatly appreciate receiving
Don Devries, yell king for the
1951-52 yell squad,, stated that
the only way to develop a yell
squad which will be perfectly
suitable to the majority of stu
dents is to let the students them
selves decide what it should be

may give them or mail them to
