French Clothes Chic
But Drab Says Sabin
NUer Attends School In Paris
Staff Writer
"French women are very style-
conscious overly so." According
to Ellen Sabin, freshman in Arts
and Sciences from New York
City, the weaker sex in France
are "nuts about clothes. How
ever," she added, "although they
wear only the latest costumes
they are of dark, drab colors."
Miss Sabin said French school
girls, instead of wearing the
typically American bobby sox
and skirts and sweaters, are re
quired to wear uniforms.
As a result of her lather s po

lived in Washington, D. C, Ne:v

for Europe July 19, 1949 to spend
a year in the French capital. A

For Rhodes
Rystrom, Johnson
Endorsed By NU
Ken Rystrom and Wayne John
son, both seniors in the College
of Arts and Sciences, were
selected Monday to represent the
University as candidates for
Rhodes Scholarships for 1954
1955. The candidates were selected
by Harold W. Manter, professor
of zoology; Lane W. Lancaster,
professor of political science;
Clarence McNeill, professor of
economics and David Dow, pro
fessor of law.
THIRTY-TWO Rhodes Schol
arships are assigned annually to
the United States. The states
are grouped into eight districts
of six states each in order to
make the appointments.
The candidates from all of the
colleges in Nebraska who are
submitting applicants will be in
terviewed by the state committee
on Dec. 9.
Application may be made in
either the state in which they
have ordinary home and resi
dence, or in any state in which
they have received at least two
years of college training.
CANDIDATES are first nomi
nated by the states; two candi
dates from each state' then ap
pear before the district commit
tee. Four men are selected from
the twelve candidates to repre
sent their states as Rhodes
Scholars at Oxford University.
The six states in this district
include: Nebraska, Minnesota,
South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri
and Kansas.
Rhodes scholars have the op
portunity to choose a course of
study at Oxford, which will be
carried out for a period of at
least two years.
TO BE eligible for the schol
arships, one must be a male ci
tizen, unmarried, between the
ages of 19 and 25, with certain
exceptions, and have a junior
standing at a recognized college
or university in the United

While in Europe, Miss Sabin
toured Belgium, northern Italy,
Switzerland, England, and the
Netherlands at tulip time.
SHE OBSERVED, "Europe is
an interesting place to visit. You
can observe new cultures and at

people and their views. You see
international relations from a
different angle. For instance,
you begin to understand just
why the French will not co-operate
with Germany in their
fight over the Saar Valley. More
important, you become more
aware of the real conflicts over
Communism in France."
Miss Sabin said, "The French
people are hard to get acquainted
with because of the language
barrier. . They resent the fact
that Americans do not speak
French. They think that we don't
care enough about them to learn
their language, while they are
required to take English in
