Seventh Book Published
By Poli Sci Professor
Information Gathered At NU-Hill
"Contemporary World Politics"
is the title of Norman L. Hill's
seventh book on international
relations. Hill is a member of
the University political science
department and professor of in
ternational law and relations.
Since the book is of a current
nature, Hill said that "it will be
lucky if its popular use lasts
five or six years." He wrote
the text-book, which is being
used in political science classes
this semester, over an 18-month
period in his spare time.
HILL HAS gathered the in
formation for the book since he
began teaching international re
lations at the University in 1926.
Additional research was under
taken, however, he said.
Hill stated that "at first I was
not inclined to write the book
for Harper Brothers, publishers,
who published another work of
mine two years ago. After much
urging, I decided to work on
books is always hard work, the
more you write, the easier it
becomes," Hill said.
Books Hill has written previ
ously are: "Public International
Conferences," "International Ad
ministration," "Claims to Ter
ritory in International Law and
Relations," . "International Re
lations Documents and Read
ings" and "International Organ
ization." In collaboration with Harold

First Student-Ed
Dates Back 82 Years; J.S. Dales, First Editor
Staff Writer
February ushers in another
famous birthday as "The Ne
braskan" celebrates its 52nd year
on the University campus.
However, the University has
had a student-edited publication
which dates back 82 years ago
to February, 1872.
This publication, "Hesperian
Student," was published by the
Palladian Society. The first edi
tor was J. S. Dales, who was one
of two students in the first grad
uation class.
A FOUR-PAGE paper, the
Hesperian's back page was de
voted to advertising while the
other three pages contained news
and editorials.
Typical news concerned prin
cipally the southwestern part of
the United States. Items included
the slaying of Mexican hepards
by Apache Indians and the mur
der of man in the plaza at Las
An ad run by the University
in the first edition was of par
ticular interest: "The Univer
sity of the State was opened last
September under favorable con
ditions, and thus far has been
prospering and successful." Of
the faculty, the ad says, "The
faculty, at the present, is com
posed of five professors, skilled
in their several departments of
instruction. To these there will
be added two more at the open
ing of the next college year."
And in reference to equipment,
the ad states, "The institution
is liberally supplied with apara
tus, cabinet, library and all
needed faculties taught. The
philosophical and chemical apa
ratus is especially large and val
uable." MOTTO OF the paper was
"Qui non Proficit, Deficit," which
means, "He who does, not profit,
loses." .
The monthly publication ex
isted for 30 years until it was re
named "Daily Nebraskan."
Recently the magazine, "Ne
braska Alumnus," printed hhort
statements by past editors of the
Daily Nebraskan.

ory productions familiar to Uni
versity students' include The
