Col. Phil Alberts, A' ROTC, is in charge of the entire drill presentation. Cadet Richard Shubert, master .Dr. Hand urged administrator? to set up programs to answer questions, young students have about military life. The Illinois educator said schools should try to explain what military life is like and show it is not the bleak picture that what the termed "rumor an folklore" paint it. This would include instruction about registering for the draft selecting the branch of service, and advice on the problems which come with induction. These recommendations, he said are made against a background of world struggle between free men and Communists, OMAHA TOUR YW Finds Mental Disease Overplayed Mental disease is not the re pulsive thing that it has been pictured. This was the general opinion of the YWCA Work Project Group which visited the psychiatric unit of the University hospital in Omaha last weekend. The crouo was under the chair manship of Kay Burcum and was accompanied by Janice Osborn, executive director of the Uni versity YWCA. Lectures from the staff on the work of the hospital were pre sented Saturday morninr by Mrs. Sholders, teacher of psy chiatric nurslnf , and Mrs. Box, head of the out-patient pro s-ram. Mm. Sholders explained that unpleasant In any way, he can develop unhealthy attitudes in the patients," explained Mrs. Sholders. Mrs. Box discussed the . out patient plan for the group. The group of out patients which comes in weekly for consultation or psy chiatric help for outnumbers the 30 patients in the hospital. She must establish the contacts be tween the people who need help and those who can administer aid. The need for psychiatrists and psychiatric nursing was stressed by Mrs. Box. She explained that the hours spent with a psychia trist are the most expensive. The group was conducted through the occupational therapy denartment of the hospital where 'Datients worked on Christmas same old records and got tired of the oatients at the hospital are cards, candle making, pottery and them. - ... a X 1 i 1 , n . & . -J mt'iai wors. ivaca paiieiu uun The group brought bed rolls and stayed overnight in an Omaha settlement 5iouse. The settlement house is a center of recreation for low - Income groups and the YWCA members washed windows before they left to pay for their stay. The party had been planned for a month and the. group was in formed by the nurses and at tendees that it was just what the patients required and that they had never responded so well, Vir ginia Cooper declared. "We brought our own, records," Miss Cooper said. "That helped the dancing program out since one patient told me that at the last dance they had no one would dance because they played the Ag Road Show Will Include Farm Course Twenty western and northwest ern counties will view a traveling short course for farmers and their wives this winter. The road show, made up by the University Agricultural Extension Service, will take to the highways in mid-January. The project is fi nanced largely by the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben. The show, which will include che latest developments in live stock production, soil conserva tion, youth activities, poultry oreeuing and nomemaKing, is made up of panels of display ma terial and models.

Jorgensen's interest in cooking and eating Chinese came during his study at Harvard through the interest of a professor there. The professor, who wanted to stuay Chinese philosophy, made the ac quaintance of Chinese in Boston Chinatown.' They introduced him to Chinese food at restaurant where the Chinese ate not one of the neon-lighted places set up for the benefit of Americans. The taste for Chinese food seemed to catch on immediately with the graduate students and other faculty members. Soon all the paoplo who knew about the restaurant were doing much of their entertaining there. The place was the Yee Hong Guey restaurant in Chinatown, Boston, Students who became interested in Chinese food at Harvard went all over the United States and carried the interest with them. Bizad Survey Finds 1952 Increase In State Industry Firm evidence exists of Indus trial growth in the, state due to the shift of workers away from the farm and into the city indus tries. This is the conclusion reached by the Department of Business Research in the University Col lege of Business Administration in an analysis of the 1952 U. S. cen sus reports. Between 1940 and 1950, the agricultural labor force in Ne braska lost 10,000 persons.

The tournament included en tries from eight schools with a total of 30 teams participating. Two teams from the University won all four of their debate ses sions. The team members in cluded Doris Carlson, senior; and Jack Krueger, senior; and Wayne Johnson and Dale John son, juniors. Three berinnin debate teams on the University squad . won five out of eirht rounds at the tournament. They were com posed of: Norman Alexander, senor and Russell Guttif, fresh man; Paul Sheele, sophomore, and Don Rosenberg, senior; Don Overholt, sophomore and Charles Kiffln, senior. Don Olson and Don Kline, as sistant professors of speech, ac companied the debate squad. - Eleven Women Initiated farm workers dropped to 29 per cent of the total labor force in 1950. Chiefly through the reduction of unemployment the non-agricultural labor force gained 80,000 active workers besides these 10, 000 workers it absorbed from the farm workers.' Altogether the civilian labor force including un employed persons who wish to work as well as those holding jobs was smaller in 1950 than in 1940. Approximately 45,000 of the new 90,000 workers went Into construction,' ' manufacturing; and public utilities such as transportation and communication. In the ten years between 1940 and 1950, workers in manufacture ing jumped over 58 percent, while the number of .workers in the construction leaped, by 91 percent due to the building boom. How ever, the number engaged in pub lic administration and ' education went up only 15 percent. About 39,000 , more women were at work in the state in 1950 than in 1940.

Jorgensen reports that the Chi nese food was the one thing he regretted leaving behind when he left Cambridge. The history of his hobby from that time on has its setting in the Midwest. One summer in search of books on deep freez ing vegetables he found a Chi nese cook book in the Ag Col lege library. The book, "Cook At Home In Chinese," by Henry Low, although out of print for a long time is now being pub lished sgaln. Jorgensen reports that according to the card It has ben used seven times in the last 10 years. In addition he recom mends two other books to stu dents Interested In cook'n? Chi nese. "How To Cook And Eat In Chinese," by Buwei Yang Chao and "Joy of Chinese Cooking," by Doreen Yen Hung Feng. The first cookbook has the symbols for the strange seasoning that the Chinese use in their cook ing. Jorgensen obtains these sea sonings through a shop in Boston or from Quong Yick, 238 W. 23rd St., Chicago. The ordering should be done by symbol. To Ftart cooking Chinese the following list of ingredients should be added to the family laraer, soy sauce, rrssh g nger root, black beans, (dowsce) and brown bean sauce. With the ex ception of the ginger these are fermented soy bean products. During the war, these products were made in America, but now they are again being imported. In his quest for Chinese food Jorgensen has had some amusing experinces. One occurred in a Chinese restaurant in Denver. For lunch he had eaten Chinese greens with pork. Being in the city at dinner time he re turned to the same restaurant and placed the same order. The wait ress looked at him and said, "You don't want to eat that that's what you had for lunch." Jorgensen always carries with him a card bearinr the symbols for Ch'nese d.:shes an1 sauces. This makes It easv to order what he wants in a Chi nese restaurant. He recommends ordering dishes which are rec ommended by the rss'aurant for they are usually good. Asked about the Chinese method of cooking ricef Derhans to be recommended to thrift brides) Jorgensen described the process as it was demonstrated to him by a Chinese in the Con sular service in Chicago. Take one cup of rice, wash it and pour off all the water. Add one cup of water and cook in a closed kettle at a low temperature so that no steam escapes. If steam is escap ing from the kettle the tempera ture is too high. Eating Chinese In the Jor gensen household depends on the time of year. In the sum mer time, when the garden fur nishes part of the things nec ressarv to cook Chinese, they eat Chinese frequently. Jor gensen raises some of the veg etables used in the cooking. He Is even raising his own ginger, although he was told lt could not be done in this climate. The Chinese, ha-'e the best method of cooking vegetables Jorgensen declares. You do not cook vegetables Chinese unless you could eat them raw. The vegetables are heated in a little peanut oil. One of the primary Chinese considerations is to get them hot enough to kill any bac teria. All the liquid is saved, no through heat or liquid. The liquid inerals or vitamins are lost is mixed with a little cornstarch and all the flavor is preserved with the vegetables. The food somewhat resembles a hot salad with gravy, Jorgensen said. Many people object to cooking Chinese because of the number of sauces used. However, Jorgensen said, the Chinese diet is composed largely of rice and the sauces make it palatable. While working on the atomic bomb in New Mexico Jorgensen introduced the hobby of cooking C..inese to many physicists. It began when the people who lived upstairs smelled the string beans with beef which he was preparing. They asked to be allowed to join in the cooking and a Chinese dinner club of about 24 people grew up. They met once a month with the host provid ing rice, tea and fruit for des sert. The members each pro vided a Chinese dish. They still have Chinese dinners In Los Alamos, Jorgensen reports. Students in the department of Physics at the University have become interested in . cooking Chinese. One student became ac quainted with a Chinese student on Ag campus. He was invited to the professor's home. He was also invited to bring a girl. He ap peared, extremely late, according to Chinese custom and without the girl. When he smelled the food being prepared he asked to use the phone, to try to contact the young lady. It seemed that he was afraid to bring her for fear the food would not be "the real thing" and when he smelled it he knew it was and wanted her to get in on It. Later that student wrote an article on the cooking and sent it to China where it appeared in farm publication. He pre sented Jorgensen with a copy in Chinese. Cooking Chinese can be very expensive if one wishes to order birds' nests and shark fins to ex periment with, or one can cook ordinary foods Chinese and derive the same satisfaction Jorgensen said. For those who may wish to ex periment Jorgensen presents the following recipe for Shrimp with Giant Lobster Sauce: Ingredients: 1 pound raw shelled shrimp. Lean meat from one pork chop. 1 teaspoom of black beans soaked until soft and mashed with two cloves of garlic. Z ejffs broken in a bowl. A little cornstarch mixed to a smooth paste with water. 2 tablespoons of peanut oil. The best utensil for cooking is a metal bowl with a rounded bottom, but an ordinary skillet can be used. Heat the oil, add the pork and black beans, mix and cook for "a couple minutes." Add shrimp,' fry for "a little while." Add "enough hot water to almost cover the shrimp." Add a dash of black pepper and one level teaspoon of Accent or Tang (from corner grocery). Put a lid on the pan and steam for a while." Thicken the juice with cornstarch until medium thick. Salt to taste. Add egg, onion mixture and stir until tho eggs break. Put on the lid. turn out the fire and wait for the eggs to coagulate. Pour the sauce over a bowl full of cooked rice, pick up the chopsticks and enjoy yourself. And good luck. It took the professor 15 years to learn this one. Calendar...
