Crib Waiters Gripe Back

Complaints, complaints and a
lot of windy stories are coming
from clients in the Crib.
They yell about the slow serv

body is in too much of a hurry.
Sure, they have to wait but
where do they have to go after
they are through eating. They
sit and mess up the booth with
cigarette butts and break the
juke boxes. There just aren't
enough waiters to roll out the
velvet rug for each customer,
but everyone does eventually
get waited on."
The barmen also have a few
words to say. The complaints in
order of importance are: new in
ventions thought up by the gour
mands who blame us for what
they feel afterwards, mixed things
with marshmellow and butter
scotch. Novel orders include cribs with
strawberry ice cream and nine
apple syrup, butterscotch malts,
and every other combination of
phosphates that is possible with
the resources at hand.
The cashier also has his prob
lems and the biggest one is sev
eral people paying: one check.
They come up with a dollar for
a nickel check. The next group
wants seven cents out of a ten
dollar bill, and so on. It's very
discouraging, but the only thing
that keeps the moneyman from
going 'off his rocker' is that
one thing worse can happen.
That's getting marshmellow on
the bill. They have to keep
them in neat little piles and it's
rather difficult when they're all
stuck together with syrup.
So now you know the whole sad
tale. You know yours and this
one is about the crib workers.
They're humand, you know and
have their problems.
The biggest one is you, the im
patient customer.

NUCWA Speakers Maintain Crisis In Iran
Stems From Britain's 'Selfish Imperialism'
The present crisis in Iran is due
directly to the British policy of
selfish imperialism-
This view was expressed by
Amir Khosrow Khodayar, an
Iranian lawTer in the United
States to study political science,
at the Nebraska Council of World
Affairs meeting Thursday evening.
He has been in this country
only eight months and was as
sisted in the talk by another stu
dent from Iran, Davoud Rafat,
who has been here two years.
Britain, they agreed, not only
took the major portion of Iran's
oil revenues but attempted to run
the country politically.

Travel In Europe-A Dream Comes True For Phyliss Moyer
Staff Reporter
A two-inch article in the Daily
Nebraskan pointed towards Paris,
Rome, Munich, London ana otner
European locales for Phyllis
Moyer, junior art major from Fre
mont at the University.
Miss Mover saw the possibilities
of a dream coming true as the
article described a European tour.
Her parents joined in the plans.
On June 27, 1951, she sailed from
New York City on the first day of
a six week tour.
The ship arrived in LeHavre,
July 6. and the group boarded the
boat train for Paris. "Of all the
places we saw in Europe," Miss
Moyer says, "Paris is the place to
have fun.
The confusion of Parte was
heightened, she said, by the
constant babble of a language
which she eould not understand, j
Sign Painter
said that the host tracer or
"diagnostic tool" is pottery. It is
the most variable evidence from
place to place and from time to
time. Thus, similarities between
pottery of two groups provide a
good link between those groups.
Davis termed the Medicine
Creek diggings "a joint attack by
'several sciences." Anthropology
the study of man made things,
palenotology the study of ani
mals of the past, and geology
the study of earth structure, all
united on the Medicine Creek pro
ject. For instance, the site was dis
covered originally by museum
workers searching for Ice Age ani
mals. Although the ice cap did not
Before the present nationaliza
tion, there was a government in
Iran, they said, that was content
to let the British exploit the oil
concessions if government officials
were properly reimbursed.
Although Iran is a poor country,
the rich returns possible from the
oil, they said, were not used for
social improvement.
Now that the oil industry has
been nationalized, the Iranian
government will receive all the
revenue from the refineries.
According to the two students,
the new government has made
valid promises to use the money
to build up the country.
They emphasized that if this

Students of the College of Ag

urged not to abuse this service.

Miss Moyer was not im
pressed with the French women
who, she said, did not live up
to their reputation for style and
beauty. The croup did not see
the really wealthy French, how
ever, as anyone who can leaves
for the country in the summer.
After a round of the Paris
night clubs, Miss Moyer, a tour
companion, and two Turkish
students, had coffee at Paris'
famous Pigalle. This was really
getting "down among 'em," says
Miss Moyer.
The trip to Rome, says Miss
Moyer, was reminiscent of a Re
naissance painting. The country
side was very primitive and carts
drawn by oxen were the only evi
dent means of transportation other
than the train.

The chief objection to British
policy in the oil crisis was their
insistence that only British tech
nicians be allowed to run the re

that the refineries be managed

University Uses Complex
System Of Bookkeeping
(This is the third in a series of
articles explaining the budget
system of the University.)
As it was pointed out in the
Thursday article all University
funds are deposited in a singlej
treasury from which every ex
penditure is made.
When a department begins to
use up the money alloted in the
TInivprsitv HnrfuAt it ttiiic nnnlv
Hpr funds to be withdrawn from its
account in the treasury or bank.
If a department needed sup
plies totaling $300, the head of
the department would send a re
quest that $200 dollars worth be
withdrawn. This appears on the
records as money spent. Actu
ally the amount is still in the
treasury until the supplies are
paid for.
This system known as encum
brance is used so that a depart
ment will not overdraw its bud
get. If the goods arrive and cost
only $190 the account is credited
with ten dollars. Thus at the end
of the year the records will show
total expenditures and the funds
encumbered for transactions not
yet completed.
Extensive bookkeeping appar
ently is involved in carrying out
this system. It is true that the
keeping of records for an institu
tion of the University's type is
tremendously complicated.
Through the use of an IBM the
work is done quickly and more ac
curately than persons could ever
do the job.

Circulation problems have been
bothering The Daily Nebraskan,
as many students know.
Chuck Burmeister, circulation
manager, explained many of the
difficulties the department is try
ing to overcome as soon as pos
sible. The publishing company
printing The Daily Nebraskan
also prints a morning daily.
This keeps the University paper
from hitting the press until
about 9 a.m. or later. The dis
tributors do not receive the pa
pers until 16:S0 .m.
The workers then begin the
rounds of the University build
ings, leaving varying amounts of
papers according to the approxi
mate number of students in the
building at the time the Daily
Nebraskan is distributed.
This varies from day to day,
too, and the department is doing
its best to discover the approxi
mate amounts to distribute at the
different hours and days.
The idea that organized
houses have about two papers
apiece is rather erroneous, said
Burmeister, when students
