Miss Raun is a member of Mortar Board, Ag Exec board and two home ec honoraries, Phi Upsilon Omicron and Omi cron Nu. Built around a "wishing well" theme, the Farmer's formal had Eugene Robinson as master of ceremonies. Robinson led the formal goers in wishing for a queen and her royal court. Men dressed in jeans and plaid hurts and women dressed in cot tori dresses entered the dance through an archway of tree branches. A golden harvest moon and a false ceiling of autumn col ors completed the setting. Couples danced to the tunes of Mai Dunn and his orchestra. The musicians, along with their fea tured vocalist Evelyn Jansen, were! also dressed in the traditional cot ton and denim. Miss Raun succeeds Dorothy Bowman, who was chosen queen of the 1950 Farmer's Formal. A sizable number of city campus students joined the Ag students.

I love mv Httle beanie," replied the pledge. "It was raining: out this morning, and I feared for my little beanie. I thought perhaps that when I wore it out in the rain, the colors would run and ruin it." "Hah!" replied the noble active. And so they took the little pledge's beanie, and soaked it with water. Sure enough, the colors ran. P.S. The little pledge not wearing his little beanie on rainy days. He didn't like red hair.

'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.

For the latest in recommended procedures for gettinr back at your enemies, do as thousands of others do. At precisely midnight, in the light of a full moon, go to the nearest cemetery and find an old tree stump. You may pro ceed to sit down upon It. Then build a small bonfire a short distance to ne side of it. . The fire must built up in the shape of a funeral pyre, and must be fairly large. Upon the stroke of one o'clock, remove from your left coat pocket a small lump of wax. Then proceed to make a small wax figurine resembling your enemy. While doing this, you must mutter small incarna tions, which may vary to your own personal tastes. Sample in carnations, however, I am not permitted to print When the figurine is finished, remove a small pin from your pocket. Stick this pin in the figurine. This according to latest Voodoo methods, should do him immeasurable harm. This method comes to me highly recommended. Another tip to the wise. If your friend In anger should kick you, do not be dismayed or become angry. Do as the good Samaritan would do turn the other cheek. The weather report for day indicates some cloudiness, but otherwise fair and warmer, clearing over the whole state by tomorrow. High temperature to day is 50 in the east and CO-65 in the west.
