Westrup Tells Korean Police Experiences Korea owes its present state of progress to improvements made under Japanese rule, according to Lieutenant Colonel Charle M. Westrup. Colonel Westrup, as sistant professor of military science and tactics, spoke to Provost Corps Wednesday on his experiences as Provost Marshal of Pusan and as one of those who helped organize the Korean national police. Many public improvements were instituted by the Japanese between 1904 and 1945, he said, but they were at bayonet point, and revolts were frequent, THE AMERICAN mission in Korea following World War II was to organize and unify the country, and then "get out." However, since all officials had been Japanese, It was necessary first to train Koreans to take their place, stated Westrup. A friend of Synghman Rhee, Westrup said he admires tie South Korean President because, "for forty years he's been fight ing for Korean independence." He reminded Provost Corps members that Rhee was edu cated in this country and has an American wife. The Outside World By WILLIE DESCH Staff Writer Dulles To Fly To Europe LONDON United States Secretary of State Dulles plans to fly to Europe next week say informed sources. The purpose of his trip is to have talks with "united action" to safeguard Southeast Asia from Communist domination. However this report was not confirmed by either American Embassy or Foreign Office officials. This reported decision came as both the British and the French balked at his proposal for a joint Western declaration and 10-nation defense agreement to ward off further Communist aggression in Southeast Asia. McCarran On WASHINGTON Sen. McCarran (D-Nev) made the estimate in an interview that two Senators are talking about sending United States naval and air units into Indo-Chinese fighting as a possi bility of helping in an inevitable "If we should send in naval only bring the Chinese Communists in force and then I don't see how we could avoid sending troops," McCarran said. Expressions by President Eisenhower and Secretary of State Dulles plus the sober comment in Congress may be an indication of the administration's determination that Indo-China must not fall to the Communists.

LINCOLN, NEBRASKA it happened at nu A geology lab was identify ing specimens of various rocks and minerals when one of the more light-minded students brought up an odd-looking piece of, rock, presumably out of one of the specimen draw ers. Both lab instructors offered their idea on the probable composition of the rock and students chimed in with un known combinations, "Basalt with phyillite"; "gabbro with granite?" After about 15 minutes one of the instructors asked which box the rock had come from. Oh," the student replied, "it didn't come from any of them. It's just a piece of asphalt out of the street." Rathbone Plans Visit To Campus Emphasis Made On Informality A three-day visit to the Uni versity has been scheduled by Basil Rathbone in connection with the presentation of "King David" by more than 500 stu dents from the music depart ment. The famous theatrical star will narrate the story of the life of King David as written by Rene Morax. The Biblical drama will be presented in 27 musical num bers by Arthur Honegger. Rathbone will hold open forums and informal discussion sessions with University students April 30 and May 1. Before promising to appear at the University, Rothbone in sisted upon informal meetings for "provocative discussion on art, music and the theater," instead of lecture programs, Dr. David Foltz, chairman of the depart ment of music, said. ALTHOUGH FAMILIAR to most students mainly for his por trayals of Sherlock Holmes, ac cording to Dr. Foltz, Rathbone is well-known on both East and West coasts as a narrator for or chestras and for dramatic read ings. Rathbone had previously been scheduled to appear in a pres entation of "King David" by the Baltimore orchestrat one of four times it has been presented in his country. He cancelled this ap pearance, however, to appear in television presentation of "The Thirteen Clocks," by James JTurber. Other performances which Rathbone has narrated include: "Peter and The Wolf" and "Man fred" in a presentation by the San Francisco Orchestra, and the Oscar Wilde poem, ine Nightingale and the Rose."

University Mum George Hughes Copies Scriot from Emotion Temole Walls - -1 ' " - Ciphers, Symbols, Letters Record A University alum has a life time copying job. George Hughes, 1929 gradu ate of the University, is now busy copying the walls of Medi net Habu temple in Egypt for the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. Medinet Habu was built over 1,506 years ago. The temple Was built to launch the current pharaoh of the time, Rameses III, into the next world with true majesty. It was built in approximately 20 years by scores of thousands of slave la borers. THERE ARE several court yards in the temple. Each is en tered through a 30-foot door in a 50-foot high facade. Court yards are over 100 feet square, ringed with 30-foot statues or columns. The statues were considered idols. In one courtyard Chris tians tore them down more than 1,500 years ago and built a church. Later, when Moslems brought in a third religion, the church vanished. ABOUT 100 years ago arche ologists chased out farmers who lived there, cleaned away the dirt of a millennium and now Hughes and his colleague Charles Nims, of the Oriental Institute, are copying the writ ing that covers acres of walls. Hughes, a Phi Beta Kappa, is estor sxplaainis History value Illinois Professor Presents First Of Scheduled Convention Speeches History's relative place in the field of social sciences was the main subject of an address by Dr. Arthur E. Bestor, professor of history, University of Illinois, Thursday. "History and the Social Sci ences" was the title of the first in a series of speeches in con nection with the History Teach ers Convention. "IN TIME of crisis, history is not a mere ornament or a means of escape; it is, of all the dis ciplines, the most essential for the survival of the values which we dignify as the greatest of all by calling them humane," Dr. Bestor said in evaluating the place of history in our modern world. Definitions of education and those particular fields of know ledge, generally called subjects, but which the speaker preferred to term deciplines, were given detailed treatment. Differentiation was cited as the basis for intellectual development and several examples of how this differentiating between kinds of matter has been accomplished were given. "KNOWLEDGE . . . EDUCA TION," Dr. Bestor said, "con sists of analyzing what James Joyce calls 'one great blooming, buzzing confusion' and finding in it the elements which can be organized." As a result of this, Bestor stated that the subjects or dis ciplines of a university are not the result of arbitrary discus sions but the results of human, pragmatic experiences with dif ferentiation. Having defined education for his .purposes, Dr. Bestor at tempted to enumerate the steps Twenty-Three ROTC Cadets Fly To Tampa Twenty three members of the Air Force ROTC program flew to Tampa, Fla., recently to tour McDill Air Force Base. The cadets traveled in a C-46, "Commander" aircraft. . First Lieutenant Philip A. Beaumont accompanied the cadets as staff project officer, and First Lieu tenant Paul L. Glass served as a crew member on the plane. Highlights of the trip to the base, which is a B-47, Strategic Air Command Base, was the in doctrination of the cadets into the operation of the de-com pression chamber; touring of Tampa Bay in Navy crash boats; swimming at one of the beach clubs and touring McDill AFB and Tampa night-life., Cadets making the trip were Earl F. Barnette, David Brand, Wallis R. Cramond, Delain G Danehey, Brock Q. Dutton, Rob ert J. Hawke, Richard A. Hunt, Homer B. Kenison, Gary R. Ko berstein, Jack L. Moore, Rich ard A. Moore, Martin L. Niel sen, Dale L. Nitzel, Kenneth W. Philbrick, Arthur P. Raun, Roger D. Scow, Ronald D. Shaw, Jack H. Stiehl, Donavan L. Tad ken, John R. Toman, Charles K. Tomsen, Elvin D. Vachal and Daryl L. Wood. fB an expert in the field of writings and ancient Egyptian languages. During the war, he deciphered enemy codes for the govern ment. Now working on ancient Egyp tian, Hughes has run into new words that, to this date, were unknown. The name of the tem ple, Medinet Habu, is one of his problems. Medinet means "city of" but Hughes has been unable to find out what Habu means. ACCORDING TO Hughes, the Egyptians were "pretty smart." They knew how to cut with abrasives and apparently how to Tassel Deadline Set For April 21 April 21 is the last day inde pendent coeds may file for Tas sels, women's pep organization. Today was incorrectly stated as the deadline in Wednesday's Ne braskan. Today is the last day coeds can file in the activitiy offices of city and ag unions before -vacation.

Friday, April 9, 1954 in the progression by which man kind has developed intellectual power. The first of these, he said, is to resolve experiences into theif basic elements. Then as the sec ond step, and the ultimate aim of education is to apply tms order to the complex problems of mankind. SHOWING WHAT is involved in an attempt to fuse history with another of the social sci ences, Bestor pointed out that each of the disciplines has and must have its own form of or ganization. One cannot, according to Bestor, apply the logical organization of one subject to another; each must be taugnt in its own terms. The real Question involved in the inter-relations of history and the social studies is whether his tory should be sacrificed to the other social sciences or whether it is too essential to be replaced by any of them. "The factor which history alone represents is one of the ir-re-placable elements of education," Dr. Bestor said in answer to his own question. This ir-replaceable factor, as defined by the speaker, is time or the long view or experience. "WE NEED to know the con temporary world but we cannot know it usless we see it from some kind of a distance," he said in explaining this value of his tory. He compared the problem involved with that of trying to see the curvature of the world while standing on it History allows a comparison and evaluation of experiences, he stated. History, he said, is the means by which we see which of the ends we have to accom plish is the more enduring and desirable. Bringing this importance into a present-day problem he said that unless we can see the long vipur nf histnrv we mav sacrifice the Bill of Rights for the immedi ate ends of ridding the country oi a few communists. "History" Dr. Bestor- said in giving his final evaluation of it, "is particularly important in timps nf rrisis. It is of all the disciplines the most essential to survival. Sale Of Barbeque Tickets To Begin Farmers Fair Barbeque tick ets will go on sale April 20 to 26 in the Ag Union.

The youths, two 18 years old and one 20, were referred to the dean by County Judge Herbert Ronin. They admitted taking two chairs from Phi Kappa Tau and a chair from Alpha Gamma Rho Tuesday night. Ancient Culture harden copper, a lost science. The building itself is a good ex ample of the knowledge and skill they possessed. The greatest invention of the Egyptians was writing. Hughes said that for years it was thought that they merely drew pictures. It wasn't until about 150 years ago that we began to think that possibly their writing was based, like ours, on sounds. The clue to Egyptian writing was a stone on which an order was written in both Greek and Egyptian. It was signed by Cleopatra and Ptolemy. .WHEN THE letters P, T and O were deciphered the rest of the alphabet slowly fell into place. Every now and then Hughes has discovered words that have not been recorded. In early Egyptian writing, a picture stood either for a col lection of sounds or an individ ual sound, according to Hughes. Thus, a word could be written using any one of six characters. MUCH OF our alphabet came from ancient Egyptian. Hughes has said that an ox head turned upside down developed into Our capital A. Letter B began as a sign for a house. Phoenicians, first used the letter. We took it and rounded the corners. The ancient tongue is 'still spoken in services of the Egyp tian Christian church, but only' a few priests and scholars un derstand or can read it.
