Volunteer Car Pool
Transports Students
Stranded By Strike .
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

flooded with cars and stranded

A commission of conciliation
should seek a peaceful settlement
of the Iranian oil crisis.
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.

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

Gen. Eichelberger said that the policy of rotation should not
be followed to the extent that all the seasoned men In the front
