University Pre-M Student Attends Class By Day,
Walhs Best Of A Regular City Policeman By Might
Staff Writer
The Daily Nebraskan hashad a
policeman in its office for the
past week.
Richard Pedersen, Patrolman
Third Class of the Lincoln Police
Force, is doing a sports story
covering the athletic activities
of the University in the past
few years for the paper. In his
spare time he attends classes,
that is, when he is not on bis
11-8 night beat.
Pedersen. who lives at 1424 No.
41st with his wife, Vyvene, and
two sons, Richard Jr., and Jerry,
intends to exchange his blue uni
form for the white jacket of a
heart surgeon. This semester he
enrolled for his second term at the
University in preparation for per
haps four or more years in med
ical school and special training.
The 23-year-old patrolman
explained his unusual goal this
way, "By reading and hearing
about heart surgery, I decided
there was a definite need for
many specialists in the field,"
and, added the Curtis, Nebr.,
native, " it would be rewarding
to help people handicapped with
heart disease."
Pedersen's daily routine begins
with his ll-to-8 a.m. police tour.
Following this, the young officer
attends classes or studies, usually
from 10 a. m. to 5 p.m. every week
day afternoon.
Along with his eight hours of
classes which he plans to raise
to 12, he manages to work in
odd jobs like assembling an
article on past University's sport
history. He is not a stranger to
sports and intends to try out for
tho University wrestling and
boxing teams this year.

IN-BETWEEN ... Taking a short break between studies and
work, Patrolman Third Class Richard Pedersen talks to his wife
Vyvene. The father of two sons, Pedersen is combining his full
time Lincoln police job with his pre-med education at the University.
Pedersen first became Interested
in becoming a heart specialist
when he was graduated from
Curtis high school in 1947. Later
he attended Kearney State Teach
ers college for one year, and ar
rived here the summer of 1952. He
joined the police force this sum
Hobbies play an important Dart
in Pedersen's free time. When he
is not flying he holds a pilots
license and has logged over 1,200
hours in the air he is probably
out on the pistol range banging
away at targets. Fishing and hunt
ing also rate high on his priority
list oi recreations.
"My wife doesn't see me very
often," he said, "She says I just
come home to change my shirt."
While home at Curtis, Pedersen
mentioned another hobby which
occupied his idle time. During one
summer, he and two of his friends
followed the Kansas-Nebraska-Oklahoma
rodeo circuit. There
were 15 to 20 rodeos on the circuit,
which started at Stratton and con
tinued through Kansas and Okla
homa. Denver held the biggest
show in which the fellows partici
pated. Next summer he hopes to add
to the family income by riding
again m the county rodeo. Bare
back riding and bull riding are
his specialties. "Just for the fun of
it," he may try the annual Ag col
lege rodeo this spring.

WASHINGTON American robot planes have demolished Com
munist targets in North Korea. The birth of push-button warfare
was witnessed by Associated Press Photographer Fred Waters on
Sept, 1. Navy censors delayed the release of Waters' story cabled
from the aircraft carrier Boxer. He witnessed the progress of the
pilotless "suicide" plane on a television screen.
Navy reports said: (1) The missile is sent aloft from a catapult
on the carrier. (2) There are two electronic equipped guide planes
one on the carrier and one in the air. (3) The carrier-based
plane sends the missile skyward. Then the airborne guide takes it
and directs it to the target. (4) The guide plane is out of anti
aircraft fire when the missile hits the target. (5) The missile records
its progress via telecast to the ship's electronics room.
BRIDGEPORT, CONN. Gov. Adlai Stevenson opened his New
England campaign drive with his views on economy and corruption.
He said it is something "you've got to grind at 24 hours a day."
The Illinois governor spoke in defense of his sense of humor.
His Republican opponents have often criticized his humorous ap
proach to campaign lssues
Stevenson had been in conference with Sen. J. William Fulbright
of Arkansas before the Bridgeport speech. Fulbright said the gov

SPRINGFIELD, OHIO Sen. Robert Taft said the philosophy of
government spending and power can be changed only if Gen.
Dwight Eisenhower is elected president.
Taft's address opened the 19-state tour which the Ohio senator
will make in support of the Republican nominee. It was his first
speech since he was defeated by Eisenhower for the presidential
Speaking out in favor of the general, Taft said, "He believes
strongly in our system of constitutional limitations. He abhors the
left-wing theory that the executive has unlimited powers."
Taft said that the Democratic nominee Stevenson was a captive
of the Truman administration and would not be able to erase corruption.
