capital city at approximately

The price of these tickets will be
included in the migration price.
Monday's edition of The Daily
Nebraskan will carry the price of
the migration ticket, which in
cludes round-trip train fare and
stadium seats, and will definitely
be under $10, Cohen emphasized.
A snack car will be included in

soft drinks, fruit, cigarettes and

Union, Ag College Union and the
Social Sciences building. Other
booths will also be set up at vari

The migration chairman said,
"The migration committee feels
that the trip this year should
be very successful because of
the avid interest shown in the
1951 Cornhusker football squad.
"For this reason we are ex
pecting a large turn-out and
also because of the terrific re
sults of last year's migration to

French educator, pastor and ex
underground leader Andre Trocme
warned listeners to be aware of
"optimism found in American
pacifists," in his speech Wednes
day evening in Ellen Smith hall.
"It takes humility to be a
pacifist. You are mistaken if you
believe you can stop war if a
small number refuse war," he
Trocme, sandwiching the
speech between a television ap
pearance and other lecture en
gagements, also stated that
communist tactics are being
used to fight communism. Such
practices are weakening an al
ready "fragile democracy.
"The methods used by Acheson
at the recent treaty conference,
said Trocme, "were similar to the
procedure found when Russians
sign treaties with neighboring
eatellite nations . . . discussion
only on rules of procedure.
The use of the Korean war as
a "government method to keep
the pace of rearmament progress
ing " was cited an another com
munist strategium now employed
by the U. S. , ',. .
Trocme is currently delivering
the Robert Treat Paine lectures
of 1951. He will speak at the

In 1938 Trocme founded col

secondary school. It has grown
from its orginal size of 18 stu

"The migration shows great school
spirit to other schools and inside

The hour was nine o'clock.
The scene was a classroom in
one of the University buildings.
The characters were students.
The topic under discussion was
the West Point story.
As one certain student spoke
up from the back of the room,
the subject lost its serious tone.
This honest and straight-forward
student announced to the
instructor after listening to the
instructor ask if his students
should be expelled for cribbing:
"I'm sure glad you haven't
previously expelled your stu
dents for cheating 'cause dur

Thursday morning produced an
unusual reward offer.
When Vern Davidson awoke
and discoveread that his wrist
watch was missing, several others
made similar discoveries. Among
the missing items were two wrist
watches, three sport coats and
about $65 in cash.
The thieves are apparently new
at the art of pilfering billfolds.
One wallet was relieved of several
dollars' cash while a check was
thrown away. The check was
blank as far as the amount and
the recipient are concerned, but it
was signed by one ZBT's father
and was worth almost any
The robbery occurred after 1
a.m. Since the tnree missing sport
coats are of varying sizes, it . is
suspected that there were three

their entire pledge class as a
search party. According to re

stolen goods will be initiated im
