A sizable number of city

'University's Radio Program
Unexcelled By Other Colleges'
"No other university in America
has a radio outlet comparable to
that of the University of Ne
braska," according to Ken Keller,
assistant director of public rela
tions at the University.
Nebraska's own program, "Your
University Speaks," is broadcast
over a network of 17 stations, he
continued. Although some univer
sities have their own stations, no
other university also has a pro
gram broadcast over a large net
work. "Your University Speaks"
tells the people of Nebraska
what is going on at their uni
versity, Keller said. Interviews,
concerts and transcriptions of
University life are presented
every Sunday. . ,
Keller said most stations ask
for interviews with Chancellor
R. G. Gustavson and head football
Bunche, Emily Kimbrough and
many of the convocation speakers.
Keller reported that the re
cent interview with Dr. and
Mrs. Martin Muma proved to
be one of the most unusual
shows he has broadcast Dr.
Muma, formerly an associate
professor of entomology at the
University, is one of the na
tion's few experts on spiders.
Another unique program broad
cast the sounds of a beating hu
man heart and a moving muscle.
The program was born during
the war when the Nebraska
Broadcasters association formed
the Nebraska Network association
to do a week'v show of aptriotic
importance. A.tw the war's end,
the association turned the show
coach Bill Glassford. Other guests j
have been Ogden Nash, Dr. Ralph
over to the University to continue
the public service.
Participants in the "Your Uni
versity Speaks" program do not
prtend to be professional radio
performers, Keller said. He be
lieves that the people of Ne
braska, having been pelted with
neat crisp perfection In pro
grams, like to lean back and
hear people talk naturally.
Guests on this week's show,
broadcast Sunday at 2:30 p.m.,
over KFOR, will be football coach
Bill Glassford, athletic news di
rector John Bentley, and Tom
Rische and Sue Gorton of The
Daily Nebraskan staff. A tran
scribed portion of a recent speech
by Chancellor Gustavson in which
he presents his "equation for suc
cess" will also be included. ,
Sophomore men candidates
are Joe Edwards and Dale Ol
son. Junior men candidates are Art
Becker and Bill Waldo.
Senior men candidates are
Rex Coffman and Jerry John
son. The Ag Exec board is the gov
erning body of the College of
Agriculture. It is composed of
student members and two faculty
members, Mary E. Guthrie, as
sistant professor of home eco
nomics, and David Sander, as
