The Student CounciJ Wednes
day voted to propose to the Uni
versity Board of Regents the con
struction of a surfaced parking
lot on the area now occupied by
Memorial Mall.
The cost of such a project, ac
cording to Bob Peterson, member
of the Council parking committee,
would be approximately $25,000.
Although the lot would ac
commodate 250 cars, 500 ve
hicles could be parked by util
izing lanes during ball games,
according to Peterson.
The University has no build
ing plans for the mall area,
Committee Chairman Rocky
Yapp reported.
"Some action has to be taken
to alleviate the parking prob
lem," he said. "And I think the
(conversion of the) mall is the
needed action."
Parking is needed In the center
of University, Yapp said, since
that is where parking hazards are

Joe was strolling down the

thought was the familiar figure
of a friend. He came up to the
man, slapped him heartily on the
back, then noticed tohis amaze
ment and confusion that the man
was a total stranger.
"Oh, I beg your pardon, I
thought you were an old friend
of mine Brown by name."
The stranger recovered his wind
and replied with considerable
heat: "And suppose I was Brown,
do you have to hit me so hard?"
"What do you care," retorted
Joe, "how hard I hit Brown?"

mall is used by the department
during the fall and spring.
Peterson emphasized that the
aesthetic value of the mall could
be maintained by landscaping in
the middle of the parking area
on both sides of the north-south
sidewalk. No cars would thus be
seen in looking from Love Mem
orial Library to the Coliseum.
Park pointed to three object
ives involved in the conversion
of the mall:
1. Moving ROTC drills off
the mall and beautifying it.
2. Providing more central
3. Obtaining a better and
more adequate drill field for
the ROTC Department.
Yapp reported that according
to present plans, the University
within 10 to 20 years would con
fiscate two of the three faculty
lots on the south mall, the park
ing lot north of the Union, lots
west and north of the boys dor
mitories and lots near 14th and T
Streets. A horseshoe lot would re
place the last group of lots.
The parking problem will
therefore become greater than it

NEW YORK President-elect Dwight Eisenhower and Sen.
Robert Taft conferred on legislative problems that will confront the
next session of Congress. Taft said he and Eisenhower expected to
reach only general conclusions
worked out.
Taft alsb said that It had been decided the presidential reor
ganization act, due to expire April 1, should be "extended for a
year." He said he would have amendments to the Taft-Hartley law
ready. Taft said he, Eisenhower and Sen. Joseph Martin also dis

Sfofe Assistance Department Cuts Budget
LINCOLN The State Assistance Department is asking 5
million dollars less for operating costs during the next biennium.
Neil C. Vandemoer, director of the department, has submitted a re
quest for $38,871,000 for the 1953-55 period. He said the decline in
the case load can be attributed to higher social security payments,
the relatives and stepfather responsibility laws, and to more avail
able employment.
The department, he said, expects the average cost per old age
assistance case to rise $4.02 to $58 a month. Much of the hike, he
said, is due to the "psychological increases in rents following the
raising by a special session of the legislature of the old age grant
ceiling to $60.

Third Band Unable
To Fulfill Contract
The 1952 Mortar Board Ball has
been cancelled.
The Black Masque chapter of
Mortar Board made this deci

wire from Neal Hefti Tuesday
afternoon that due to a band en
gagement on the East coast he
would be unable to sign the
Mortar Board Ball contract
It was previously announced
that Neal Hefti and Francis
Wayne would play for the ball.
Prior to this two other bands,
Ralph Marterie and Buddy Mor

explained, it is impossible to en -

Although there would be a
possibility of contacting a local
band for the Ball, the society
felt to keep any band at this
date would be unfair to the stu
dents in view of the outstanding
bands which will be appearing
this year on the campus.

line set by the backers of the
petition is Jan. 1, 1953.
Representatives from the houses
endorsing the petition and mem
bers of Kosmet Klub were at the
meeting to voice their convictions
concerning the petition.
The comment was made that
proof could be given to show that
four houses whose names ap
peared on the petition did not
vote on the petition as a body, and
that the names were not accurate,
because of this.
A representative of the petition
said that in these four houses,
power was given to the activities
chairman of each to give a deci
sion for the entire house, and
therefore was accurate.
The house members said that
the original idea of the com
mittee was that by being on
ticket-selling basis, the degree
of honor of winning the title is
lessened. Another objection is
the amount of pressure put on
girls by the houses to vote.
Therefore, in order to vote for a
candidate, one must purchase a
ticket at a set price.

Estabrook Predicts Less
"In the United States, the his
torical pendulum has swung from
a period of liberal legislation to a
period of conservatism."
That is the view Robert H.
Estabrook, editorial writer for the
Washington 3ost, stated in a con
vocation Wednesday. Estabrook's
appearance was sponsored by the
School of Journalism.
In delivering his views on the
significance of the campaign, its
results and the role of the press
in the election, Estabrook said
the government will undergo a
period of less experimenting
and more consolidating.
Estabrook declared that the
voters elected Eisenhower through
his personal, rather than party,
merits. He felt that this was illus
trated by the fact that Eisenhower

"The Democratic party badly
needed a breather," reflected
Estabrook. After predicting a
new attack on governmental
corruption, he added, "I am suf
ficiently cynical to believe that
the outgoing rascals will be re
placed by incoming rascals aft
er some time elapses."
Estabrook suggested that there
will be more nroeressive men in
'positions of authority in Congress.

tion was discussed and questioned
as to its legality of going against
possible negative Council deci
sion. The petition committee
pointed out that it was not a ques
tion of legal matters. The houses
merely would 'not wish to put
up a candidate." This would in
no way go against Student Coun
cil action, they said.
Another point brought up
against the current ticket bal
loting method was that many
Lincoln people attending the
presentations, whatever they
may be, are not vitally inter
ested in who wins the title. One
house representative said it
has been noticed that often
some University students "in
struct" the Lincoln people for
whom to vote.
Miss Mary Mielenz, Student
Council adviser, said 6he was
pleased with the women's action
in this matter. She said it was
a definite improvement to see
action coming from students, and
not from Student Council or fac
ulty alone.
To the Council members, she
said, "As Council members, If you
don't like what some organiza
tions are doing in elections, you
have the right to change it."

press In the election, Estabrook
declared that the majority of
editorial opinions coincided with
the views of the public as it
evaluated the news columns.
Though the majority of news
papers supported Eisenhower, Es
tabrook stated that Stevenson
benefited greatly through publi
city which transformed him from
a little-known individual to one of
national importance.

Ag Research
Large Territory Slows
Research In Australia '
Dr. M. C. Franklin of Sydney,
New South Wales, principal re
search officer of the Common
wealth Scientific and Industrial
Research Organization in Aus
tralia, speaking before the Ne
braska extension service, said
that the organization of agricul
tural research and extension in
the United States is to be envied.
He emphasized that there Is
little comparison between the
research organizations in this
country and in Australia. In
his native country, difficulty is
encountered in getting the re
sults of research to people who
use them because of the large
amount of territory to cover.
But recently steps have been
taken to remedy this situation.
One of the main jobs of his
extension service is to interpret
the research results to farmers.
He added that in the "Land Down
Under," the research organiza
tions fire independent whereas in
the U. S. they are a part of col
leges. After Dr. Franklin's talk, Dean
W. V. Lambert of the College of
Agriculture outlined the organ
ization of research along regional
lines for the extension workers
who were attending their annual
R. G. Ford, an extension eco
nomist, spoke on "Integrating
Research and Extension." And

topic of a talk by R. I. Throck

tor of the Nebraska Agricultural

summary of the conference.
