The letter nominating Miss

her senior year Ruth probably
has been the outstanding
woman on the campus, for , as
the first semester editor of The
Nebraskan, she rose quickly to
defend the right of our profes
sors and students to be free of
any dogmatic indoctrination and
through her editorials she
helped to maintain their free-
dom in the classroom, to exam
ine critically all that they
"Ruth has made further con
tributions to the campus, be
sides editing a good paper, by
participating throughout her

Fourteen students and faculty

"serving this University and the
students connected with it un
selfishly for about 20 years."
"As an advisor for many stu
dents, he has helped a great
number of troubled students by
his frank and sincere advice."

concerning the tentative parking
policy for 1953-54."

mended changes to' be offered the

Top 1953 Story
When Dr. R. G. Gustavson resigned after being Chan
cellor of the University since Sept. 1, 1946, he made the
news that constituted the Daily Nebraskan's bigges.t news
story for the second semester.
The Chancellor will leave the University to become
president of Resources for the Future, Inc., a fund associated with
the Ford Foundation.
To show their appreciation for Dr. Gustavson and regret of
his resignation, more than 300 students attended a banquet in his
honor. At this banquet he was given a movie camera and projector
which was purchased entirely with student donations.
The remaining ten top stories are as follows:
2. The cut in Daily Nebraskan issues.
3. Brownell's speaking at Commencement.
4. Medical school appropriations.
5. Elections.
6. Administration's action against liquor regulations.
7. Doctor of Education degree.
8. Ivy Day.
9. Vacation robberies.
10. Model United Nations.
The story in second place was created when the Student Pub
lication reduced the issues of the Daily Nebraskan from four to
three copies a week. This decision was made in order to defray
the cost of publishing the Nebraskan.

Ivy Day at which Julie Johnson, Arts and Sciences, was pre
sented as May Queen was the event which was featured in the
story which rated eighth.
Ninth in place was the story of the robberies during the spring
vacation in which nearly $500 in cash and valuables was taken
from the Sigma Chi, Farm House, and Beta Sigma Psi fraternities.
