the number of coeds voting was
the largest on record. Records
vere traced back several years.
The 1,007 counted ballots in the
invalid election far surpassed
the previous record of 891 votes,
she said.

nounced as the winners of the
lone Gardner Noyes Memorial
Poetry Contest.
First prize winner, Dobrey, a
senior majoring in English and
German, said he wrote his en

a half years ago.

he was writing quite a lot of

NU Debaters
Win 7 Rounds
At Conference
Two University teams won
seven out of eight debates at the
University of Wisconsin Debate
and Discussion Conference held
in Madison, Friday and Saturday.
Sandra Reimers and Sharon
Mangold were undefeated and
Dick Fellman and Jerre McGaff
ney lost one round. However,
Donald 0. Olson, debate coadh,
pointed out that they were "de;
feated only by a strong Univer
sity of Wisconsin team who were
in the semi-finals."
Olson also said that although
both teams were composed of
first year University debaters,
they were entered in the senior
rather than the junior division
of the tournament.
In addition to the four rounds
of debate, the teams also partici
pated in discussion. The squad
returned on Saturday before the
complete results of the tourney
were known, so their ratings were
not available.

Ike Thinks Tax Cuts Dangerous
WASHINGTON President Eisenhower feels that personal in
come tax cuts urged by Democrats would endanger Americas
economic stability, congressional leaders reported. Talking with
reporters after a discussion with President Eisenhower, House
Speaker Martin (R-Mass) said that tax cuts .already made by the
administration this year and those contemplated during the rest
of the year total about $7 billion. Martin added that Eisen
hower believes that adding another $2V4 billion cut would be too
much of a financial strain.
Dakota Dam Dedicated
PICKSTOWN, So. Dak. President Eisenhower pushed the
button which started the mighty waters of the Missouri River
pouring over the Ft. Randall dam which has just been completed.
The project was begun 10 years ago when the Pick-Sloan Plan
was put into operation. J . .
Water rushed into the turbine below at a rate of two minion
gallons per second. The generator of the powerhouse is only
slightly smaller than the world's largest. The power will be put
on Bureau of Reclamation lines and transmitted into Nebraska,
Iowa and South Dakota. The power will be put on three lines
which will be energized on successive days into the three states.
Eventually a series of multi-purpose dams now being built
on the main stem of the Missouri River will supply more than
a million and a half kilowatts of power to the basin.
South Dakota Gov. Sigurd Anderson, who was present for
the occasion, referred to the event as Dividend Day. He said that
dividends from the program will be felt in the 10-state basin
region and throughout the nation through flood-control, power
production, irrigation, navigation, recreation and other benefits.
Court Rules No
WASHINGTON Alabama and Rhode Island were denied
permission by the Supreme Court to file suits alleging Congress
violated the Constitution by conceding title of oil-rich lands to
coastal states The two states contended that a 1953 act deprived
citizens of equitable interests in oil resources estimated to be
worth $50 billion, plus $62 million in royalties and revenues
impounded by the United States.
The Supreme Court's majority opinion declared that the power
of Congress to do ns it wishes with public lands "is without limi-Iktion."

The faculty Senate has not for -

Raymond Dein, secretary of the

During ex-Chancellor Gustav-

not allowed in the meetings at all.
Those who came were requested
to leave.
"IT IS the only meeting the fac

should be able to speak without
being quoted or misquoted. In
many cases, such as the discus

honoary degrees or budget re

good taste to publicize the re

Proposed For Midwestern Schools
First Intercollegiate UN Meet
The University Council on World
Affairs has canceled the Spring
Conference originally scheduled
for Feb. 15 and later postponed.
"Interest In a spring conference
has steadily declined," M a r v
Friedman, NUCWA vice presi
dent, said. "This can be seen by
the fact participation has fallen
from over 500 delegates at the
first conference in 1945 to less
than 50 steady participants in the
last model United Nations Assem
bly last year," she added;
IN AN attempt to develop new
interest and increase knowledge
of international affairs, Fried
man said, NUCWA had planned to
hold a model North Atlantic
Treaty Organization Conference
and to secure an outstanding
speaker. We conducted an exten
sive campaign which included in
vitations from the Cancellor the

Administration bill will probably
be the basis for any new legisla

It would be necessary to amend
the present federal law before
the University could participate

were contacted during the past
months by interview, telephone
and direct correspondence.
Since we were unable to secure
a speaker of outstanding caliber,
Friedman said, it was decided up
on consultation with our faculty
advisers, Dr. Norman Hill and
Dr. Frank Sorenson, to cancel
this year's conference and begin
plans for an entirely new ap
proach for the coming year.
PLANS ARE now being formed
for an Intercollegiate United Na
tions Conference of Midwestern
schools, he said. Each school
would represent a nation and
would send a delegation of from
five to 10 representatives. Letters
have been sent to colleges in Ne
braska and surrounding states to
tentatively determine the extent
of interest in the idea.
Indications given by speakeri
contacted during the past year
make it entirely probable that an
outstanding speaker for such a
conference may be obtained and
announced later in the spring,
he said.
NUCWA feels that in future
years it may be desirable to alter
nate an intercollegiate confer
ence with a conference exclusively
for University students," Fried
man pointed out.
