Kosmet Klub's Fall Revue has
been rescheduled for Tuesday,
November 20, Don Devries, Kos
met Klub president, said today.
The review was originally sched
uled for October 31,
The reason for the change is in
the booking arrangements at the
Coliseum which prevent the hold
ing of practices previous to the
show, Devries said. "Also It will
give the fraternities more time to
prepare better and more worth
while skits," he added..
Following the show the pres-..

Dell's basic platform is formed
around his contention that the
present arms race will lead to
nothing but war. He would like
to have most of the foreign aid
money transferred from arms
to programs like Point 4.
He said that a reduction of Wes
tern arms would not leave this
country open to attack by Russia
because Stalin would not attack
without sufficient Infiltration.
Dell claims that ehe Reds need
this infiltration into Western so
ciety before any agression would
be successful and his program
would stop infiltration.
As one possibility for stopping
this infiltration, Dell suggested
a stronger United Nations. How
ever he had no concrete sug
gestlon to offer along this line.
He said that he had not studied
the problem enough.
Dell said that he did not know
enough about the labor situation

Hp had no definite farm pro

favored a partiy program but not
like those oeing oiierea now.
Dell admits that he does not
stand a very good chance of
winning the November election
but he said he would be "heart
ened" if he received a large
section of the vote.
He exDlained that splinter
groups very seldom win elections
nnH their main rjuroose was to
stimulate activity along lines that
major parties ignore.
This is especially true in Ne
braska, he said, where the major
long-term candidate, Sen. Hugh
Butler, has been ignoring the is
sues Dell wants to stress.
He accused Butler of ignoring
him and not accepting invita
tions to speak on the same plat
form with him.
Although Dell confessed that he
did not know all he would like to
about the many issues of this cam
paign he promised that he would
never vote without a thorough
study of the problem.

Year's Salary Would
Surpass Chancellor's
The Board of Regents has pro
posed in its 1953-55 budget to pay
the dean of the College of Med
icine $17,000 a year, which is
$1,000 more than is proposed for
Chancellor Gustavson.
J. P. Tollman, dean of the
College of Medicine, now re
ceives a- salary of $12,000 and
the Chancellor receives $14,500.
This means an Increase of
$1,500 for the Chancellor and
an increase of $5,000 for Dean
"I am certain," said Gustavson,
"that the medical school needs to
be strengthened and improved."
He asserted that a very serious
situation exists which must be
met if the College of Medicine is
to retain its accreditation with the
American Medical Association.
The Chancellor has made no pub
lic comment at this time in regard
to the issue of salaries.
Governor Val Peterson stated
that the wage proposals of the
1953-55 budget are 'way out of
line with those being paid some
officials in the Statehouse who
have jobs requiring the same
amount of education, prepara
tion, experience, and responsi
bility. He said, however, that
the solution lies in raising the
Statehouse salaries rather than
in lowering those of the Uni
versity faculty.
Salaries of other University fac
ulty members were raised as high
as 3i,iuu. Also provided in the
budget was the salary of $11,500
tor a replacement for Dean of
Faculties Carl Borgmann, who re
signed to become president of the

AWS Board
To Recruit
Girls To Gain Experience
For Future Council Jobs
A worker group is being orgnn
b.ed this year by the Associated
Women Students Board for all in
terested freshmen, sophomore and
junior women.
The purpose of the group is
to assist the AWS Board in car
rying out its responsibilities, to
provide the Board with a better
basis to select its nominees for
spring elections and to enable
coeds to become aware of the
duties of AWS and thus be in
a better position to understand
the operations of the organiza
tion. All freshman, sophomore and
junior women are eligible to par
ticipate in the workers' group. A
record of the work done by each
woman will be kept and used as
a reference in selecting those to
be placed on the slate in the
spring elections. Althougft this
will not be the only criterion used
in preparing the state it will be
an important factor since this is
one of the few concrete ways the
Board has of evaluating the abili
ties. One of the important tasks
the workers will do is to help
with Coed Follies: doing pub
licity work, selling tickets,
speaking to groups, making
posters and other art work
which must be done in order to
present the show. Work on this
part of AWS undertakings will
begin in a few weeks and con
tinue until the time of the per
formance, Feb. 23 to 24, 1953.
AH' girls interested in lpartiei
pating in the workers' group may

Pearson To Head UN
UNITED NATIONS. N.Y. Canadian External Affairs Minister
Lester B. Pearson has been elected president of the United Nations
General Assembly. He received 51 votes on the secret balloting of
the seventh annual Assembly.
President Luis Padilla Nervo of Mexico urged the Assembly to
"return to the spirit which presided over the birth of the United
Nations," in the opening address of the assembly. He endorsed the
stand of American negotiators at Panmunjom against the forcible
repatriation of prisoners of war.
"The division of the world into two halves on the one side the
classical democracies, and on the other the peoples' democracies
is the root of all our troubles," he said. "This state of affairs
cannot last many years more. Mankind will not tolerate it. And
the UN must actively seek the means to bring to it an immediate
end if the UN is to be free of the menace of a dramatic disillusion
which is undermining its very foundations."
Major Korean Assault Begins
SEOUL, KOREA In the biggest attack of the year, United Na
tions infantrymen captured one Communist-held mountain and
waged a bloody battle for the second. Sniper ridge was captured
by the Allies after a six-hour attack but still fought for the Chi
nese held Triangle hill. It was the biggest Allied assault since Octo
ber 1951.
Snow Hits Panhandle
WESTERN NEBRASKA Three inches of snow fell at Sidney
Tuesday ending the drought in the Panhandle. In the first snow
fall of the season Scottsbluff and Alliance each reported an inch.
It was the first precipitation in some sections since Sept. 22. The
snow was described as "wonderful" for winter wheat which the Ne
braskans weekly weather and crop report termed "in very poor con
dition." Lewis To Back Stevenson
CINCINNATI Labor leader John L. Lewis is ready to launch
a personal campaign tour for Adlai Stevenson. He had lined up
two speeches in West Virginia and awaits invitations from party
leaders in others. It was the first time Lewis has campaigned for
the Democratic party since he supported Roosevelt in 1936.
In a speech to the United Mine Workers convention, Lewis
said Eisenhower is a "professional soldier . . . educated and trained
in the arts of warfare, at public expense" without "background of
economic understanding."
Stevenson 'Unwise' With Hiss Nixon

Lentz deel .red that in many

doubt about the use of such a
system at the University, Lentz
did not definitely close the doori
to the possibility.
