Twenty-live hundred Univer sity students had a chance to im prove their figures Friday after noon when the City lines bus drivers went on strike. The biggest problem for stu dents will be securing a way between Ag and city campuses; however the University has of fered a solution. A volunteer car pool will be run from the steps of the City Union to Ag Union beginning this morning every hour about five minutes before the hour. All students desiring rides or willing to transport students should meet at these places. If this does not solve the prob lem University officials have promised that the school's car pool will be put into service. The bus drivers are complaining about what they call unfair prac tices of the City Lines local superintendent, J. J. Schleckmann. They also want a pay raise of six cents an hour. The Lincoln city Council, in an emergency meeting, decided to set up a negotiating team to "exert every influence that the drivers at least go back to work. The Council also unofficially proposed that the railway com mission be conducted to con ' sider giving special permits to private carriers. This would mean that some private cars of fer taxi service. The Nebraska Court of In dustrial Relations, a state legal body designed to settle employee-employer disputes, has been called into the battle by the City Lines company. They have brought suit against the driver's union. The traffic problem caused by the strike is nearly as bad as that caused by football. Friday eve ning down town streets were flooded with cars and stranded people.

The concert which was late in starting was attended by a large audience. The audience "found the well-balanced program much to their taste and liking" stated Ray Schaumburg in the Lincoln Star. Maj. William F. Santelmann, band director, selected well known music for the program or compositions that he knew would sound well in a band ar rangement. Works by Berlioz, Camarata, Bennett, and Lala, as well as sev eral interlude marches, were in eluded in the program. Following the "Roman Carnival Overture," the President's own band played "Rumbalero" by Camarata. Although the selec- Maj.

Claude Pedicord was the fea tured harp soloist as the band played "La Rougette" by David Bennett, an American composer. Pedicord then pleased the audi ence by presenting two encores. Edouard Lalo's "Norwegian Rhapsody" ended the first half of the concert. The second part of the concert I was opened with "Old Comrades" an energetic march by CarlTeikel. It was followed by Mendelssohn's! "Rondo Capriccioso." j Kooert isele, trombonist, was featured as the band played "At lantic Zephyrs" by Gordon Simons According to Schaumburg, "Isele works very hard at playing the trombone but produces, not with standing, a very lovely tone." He played two encores "the first of which," Schaumburg says, "was purely vaudvillian and the second done in the style of Mr. 'T.D.' " The Marines then played a group of the "Die Fledermaus" waltzes by John Strauss the younger. The concert closed with the playing of Tchaikovski's "Ca prlcio Italina." Schaumburg says that the se lections on the program "could have been played no better, no more precise and no more alive than they were." Among its functions are to supply music at Arlington National Cem etery services and to greet visit ing royalty and foreign dignitar ies. Fine Arts Ensemble . . .

At least a moden United Na tions Security Council Thursday evening voted to have such a com mission formed. A proposal calling for the com mission was made to the all-stu dent mock council by the delegate representing Ecuador, JoAnn Jones, after discussion on a Bra zilian proposal reached a stalemate. Brazil, represented by Ruth Sorenson, proposed that the. Iranian oil industry be put under the direction of a board consisting of Britain, Iran and rive disinterested powers. This board was to have handled all the affairs of the industry for five years at which time Iran would be expected to continue the project on her own. Charles Gomon, representing Great Britain, one of the disput ing powers, said that his country would agree to the Brazilian pro posal if Iran would also accept. Davoud Rafat, an Iranian stu dent representing his homeland, told the Council that his country could never accept a ruling from any International body on the oil situation because it is a "purely internal affair." The conflict between the Bri tain and Iranian delegates prompted the Ecuadorian to offer her alternative proposal. The CoUncil seemed, surprised that Jerry Matzke, delegate from the Soviet Union, who had been supporting the Iranian side of the question all evening, voted for this compromise proposal. A declaration of views of both Iran and Great Britain was given at the start of the evening, in which the English accused Iran of threatening world peace and security as well as taking needed oil away from the western powers. Karat denied that his country was offering any threat to the world but stated that Britain's actions in this case threatened the peace and security of Iran.

Names In The News By CHARLES GOMON Staff News Writer ; WINSTON CHURCHILL, the 77 year old leader of Britain's con servative party, again took over the post of prime minister after an absence of six years. Conservative candidates for parliament were eleceted to fill at least 319 of the 625 seats, thus obtaining a majority and giving Churchill the reins of government. The return of the war-time prime minister to Number 10, Downing Street marks the end of six years of aocialist Labor gov ernment rule. Churchill is the oldest prime minister since Glad stone, who resigned in 1894 at the age of 85. ANTHONY EDEN, wartime foreign secretary of Churchill's coali tion government, will probably take over from Herbert Morrison the incumbent foreign secretary. Conservatives tagged Morrison Lord Festival of Abadan during the election, blaming him for British troubles in Iran. SEN. ROBERT TAFT announced that he would be a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination next summer. This de cision came as a surprise to no one. The senator expressed con fidence that he would "be nominated and would win" the elrtirm LT. GEN. ROBERT EICHELBERGER, retired commands e 5e Eighth army, expressed the view that emphasis on rotation to cet combat veterans home from Korea was a mistake. The general called upon experience gained during World war II when he led the Eight army back up through the Philippines to Okinawa. Gen. Eichelberger said that the policy of rotation should not be followed to the extent that all the seasoned men In the front lines are returned home just about the time they attain combat efficiency. Such a policy would keep our Korean forces green and unable to cope with the communist veterans opposing them, as was the case early in the war when our recruits had to fight rsds with years of experience.

This last phase is no doubt meant In reassure critics nf the nnlii-v that the arms will not be used to further suppress the Yugoslav people. This is the first time since World war II that the U.S. has agreed to send arms to the government of a communist nation.
