"We were very pleased with the University response," Roger I. Larson, assistant managing direc tor of the Union, said. "Consider ing the weather conditions, the turnout was excellent." Car bumpers were washed, dried, and given a 5 to 6 foot strip of the tape for a fee of $1. The reflective tape reduces night-time accident rates and draws attention to parked cars. The tape is produced by the same company which produces scotch tape and is visibJe for about one half mile and 'catches an ap proaching driver's eyes about 70 per cent quicker than tail lights, according to tests made at Iowa's State College. The Jaycees have optained ex clusive right to sell tapes of 1" width, which is felt to be the bost width for the purpose.

His con tribution will continue long after his period of leadership on our campus. "May God speed him on his way to even greater contributions in the days to come." William F.

Henzlik, dean of Teachers College, said, "Nebraska has not only lost one of its great est educators, but one of its few great men. We regret very much that he is leaving the University, but our loss is somebody else's gain. "He has done many things to improve the University and in many ways.

"As his wife, I'll be glad to go any where his job takes him. It will be fun and a new experience for both of us." Mrs. Gustavson, who came to Lincoln with her husband more than eight yeas ago, has been active in the Sorosis Club and Lotus Club here and also is a member of the Board of Child Guidance.

Dekker will spend six months in all in the U.S., during which he will live with farming people, studying various types of agri culture, as well 'as types of edu cational and governmental insti tutions. At the same time, Dekker will tell of life in his own country both to the farm families with whom he is staying and to those! September, 1946.

Cosmic Rays Discussed At Annual Nebraska Academy Of Science Meet A glimpse at one of the prescntfinally stopped in materials such day's greatest scientific mysteries as lead and iron and determining was given members of the Ne braska Academy of Sciences which opened its C3rd annual meeting at the University of Nebraska Friday. Cosmic rays which bombard the earth from outer space every sec ond of the day and night were discussed by five staff members of the University's physics depart ment. The symposium is the first by the Academy designed to give laymen and scientists a like an un derstanding of a complete- sub ject. Opening the symposium. Prof. Theodore Jorgensen Jr. demon strated the electrical conductivity of air. To show that a glass tube, filled with air becomes a con ductor of electricity, Dr. Jorgen sen pumped the air out of the tube until the tube became a lamp, giving off a reddish clow. He also demonstrated the action of the electroscope, a very sen how the tracks of the rays are bent by a magnetic field. The rays.

German Educator To Speak Thursday Dr. Werner Richter, Tector of the University of Bonn, Germany, will discuss German re-education speeds with energies much greater than man can. produce with his cyclotrons and other machines. Ho 1944 Dr. Gustavson began his teach ing career at Colorado Agricul tural College, Fort Collins, where he served from 1917 to 1920 with ranks of instructor, assistant pro fessor, and associate professor.

The particles, he added, may be classed as sec ondary and primary rays, with the secondary rays easily studied at ground level and the primary only detectable at extreme am tudes. In closing the symposium, Prof. Edward J. Zlemmerman said the exact nature of the primary rays are unknown, but experiments indicate that they come toward the earth equally from all di rcctions and are fragments of atoms. He said they travel at very high oi me electroscope, a very sen- pBA niMWFD iUve instrument for detecting rDIV UimmcK electrical effects. j Discussing how cosmic rays'll AATmJ -were discovered, William L.

"They found," Bade ex plained, "after carrying electro scopes to great heights with man ned balloons, that rays similar in some respects to rays from radium were coming Into the earth's at mosphercf rom above. These rays of unknown origin were named cosmic rays." Prof. Robert L. Chasson told the audience that one of the big gest problems of the cxeprimenter is the constant improvement and refinement of his instruments used for looking at the rays.

Louis Lundstrom, assistant di rector of General Motors Proving Ground at Milford, Mich., said at u convocation Friday that suc cessful participation in these ac tivities requires more than the application of slide-rule engineer ing.
