The school, which has been functioning for thirteen years, consists of a two weeks and three week-end course in the wmmer time. ACCORDING TO Pi Phi house mother Mrs. Edythe B. McKnight, "The Purdue school is simply mar velous! We learned everything from how to plan meals to how to counsel the coeds on their cur rent love affairs." ' Mrs. McKnight added, "The school's most important function Is to give future housemothers the confidence to do the work. Over ISO ladies went out from Purdue will contact Lincoln women and Dottie Sears Hamilton and Gret chen DeVries will arrange for in dependents and other foreign stu dents.

'Few Snags' In New Dorm Carlyon Says One of the "new" additions of the University campus is "moving along smoothly as a whole with the exception of a few snags which should be expected in an or ganization of this size,' Don Car lyon, director of the Men's Resi dence Hals, said. "Our first snag was in the un expected overflow of men into the dorm. As a result of this we were forced to arrange temporary bunk accommodations for eleven boys. Previous plans were to place these boys in off-campus living quarters, but at the boy's requests they were allowed to live in their temporary quarters. Carlyon went on to say that as soon as space in the rooms is available, resulting f-cm boys leaving school, those in the tem porary bunks will be moved into the vacated rooms. Carlyon noted also that a waiting list of 30 is on hand for the second semester. "We learn as we go along, and as we progress the difficulties are clearing up," Carlyn continued. Another snag is the long wait ing line at the dining hall, during the noon hour. "This is, in part, due to the late installation of some of the cafeteria equipment, which arrived last week. "The long wait is the bulk cf our prob lem but with the co-operation of the boys we expect this snag will clear itself and we can settle down into an organized and con tinued unit." Builders Schedule Mass Meeting For Wednesday All men and upperclass women who are interested in the Builders organization should attend the mass meeting in Room 316 of the Union at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 29, Judy Joyce, mem bership committee chairman, said. Last year's committees will be arranged at this meeting for those who have previously worked in Builders. this summer as new house mothers." Mrs. Harry A. Scott, new Theta housemother, said, "The school stresses job evaluation which gives you great zeal and zest for the work and the feeling that you be long somewhere." ALL THREE housemothers seemed to concur in liking the Uni versity, Lincoln, their girls and their jobs. Alpha Chi housemother Mrs. D. B. Reinhardt said, "I very much like Lincoln and working with co eds. Being a housemother is a very interesting experience." Mrs. Reinhardt graduated from the Chicago Teachers College and taught in Chicago schools for five years. She said that an interesting fact was that all Chicago teach ers are trained in Chicago schools. Mrs. Scott said, "What scares most housemothers is the commis sary work. Although it is sHll a form of homemaking, it is on an enormous scale. I was accus tomed to purchasing for two peo ple, but now I have 46 to 47 to plan for."

Blumberg Survey Book Analyzes Press During '52 Campaign Charges against the press of partiality durLie the recent Eisen hower-Stevenson election are ana lyzed in a book to be published this week entitled "One-Party Press? Coverage of the 1952 Presidential Campaign in 35 Daily Newspapers." The book, written by Nathan B. Blumberg. assistant professor of journalism, was begun in 1953 after the national convention of Sterna Delta Chi, professional journalism fraternity, refused to take action on a resolution calling for a study of press performance in the 1952 presidential election. THE SDX convention a vear earlier voted in favor of such a study, but a special committee of the group reported the study was "not feasible." Blumberg was among the Troup who dissented to the committees report. The press was performing no service either for itself or for enthusiastic about my work. The duties and contacts with the girls are so wonderful that I find my self prone to go to the Chinese proverb of just not letting the gods know how much I like it." "It is a most wonderful oppor tunity to feel needed and to con tinue the nork of homemaking the work is really challenging," Mrs. Scott conceded. Mrs. McKnight was full of praise for every phase of her job. She said, "The University has a very beautiful campus. I think Lincoln, with its wide streets and lovely parks, is one of the finest com munities I have ever seen! "I had already decided that 1 really would love being a hou.ie mother before I came here. For the past three, years I toured the country visiting housemothers on various campuses. I wasn't dis appointedI have the loveliest girls on campus, and I haven't been homesick for Alabama one time!" ' Mrs. McKnight attended high school in Decatur, Ala., and then went to Mrs. Ponder's Private School for Girls.

To meet Corn Cob requirements, students must be sophomores car rying at least 12 hours and having passed at least 24 hours with a 4.5 average. Sophomore indepen dents, particularily, are urged to apply. CORN COB activities include at tending all rallies, helping spon sor migration, selling Cornhuskers and "N" flowers, assisting in the Homecoming activities and help ing Tassels set up the card sec tion. , Interested men may contact Phii Shade, Corn Cob secretary, at the Cornhusker office in the Student Union or call him at 2-5383. the public in refusing to examine its own record, Blumberg said. The study was begun in an at tempt to open the record and de termine the validity of the indict ments. This study, according to Blum berg, is the first significant study of press performance during a po litical campaign. "THIS IS not a final answer to the problem or even a conclusion," Blumberg said, "but rather, it is an experiment." The book analyzes, both quanti tatively and qualitatively, the news coverage in 35 daily news papers in 35 states during the 30-day period preceding the presi dential election. Each paper studied is classified in one of three categories. Of 35 papers covered, 18 showed no evidence of partiality in their news columns, six provided defi nite evidence of partiality in their news columns and 11 snowed no conclusive evidence of partiality in their news columns. "SPECIFICALLY, it an be stated that there was slanting in the news columns during the 1952 election," Blumberg said, "but it was not as widespread as1 some critics have maintained." The most surprising finding, ac according to Blumberg, is that papers supporting the Republican candidate performed on a higher level than pro-Democratic papers. Among the papers supporting Ike IS showed "no partiality," four showed "partiality," and seven showed no conclusive evidence of partiality. OF THE seven papers support ing Stevenson, two showed no signs of partiality, twb showeJ partiality and three showed no conclusive evidence of partiality Two independent papers were included in the survey. One showed no partiality and one showed no conclusive evidence of partiality. The sampling of papers, accord ing to Blumberg, is "excellent." The editorial preference of the papers, he reported, was very close to the national percentages supporting each candidate. Originally, the study was made by Blumberg for publication in the Neiman Reports, a quarterly publication of the Nieman Founda tion for journalistic studies at Harvard University. The report gave the results of Blumberg's study. . . Lincoln, Nebraska I BTlCOdl ?

It HappenedAtNU A constant influx of students filled room 101a of the Social Sci ence building Friday morning un til students were sitting two in a seat and many were standing. The class that had been meeting there for the two previous sessions could n't believe that such a large group of people had added Political Sci ence to their schedules. Professor Norman Hill opened the door, took one look at the en- j larged class and shut the door. ' Finally a sociology instructor op ; ened the door and told the group that a mistake had been made and ; would the sociology students please : follow her into the hall. ! After the experience in class re lations, the study of international relations resumed. All University Fund Workers To Campaign For Charities Tuesday All University Fund workers will spread out through city and campus Tuesday evening in an ef fort to "give everyone the chance to give," Phyllis Colbert, AUF president, announced. Miss Colbert said, "AUF has tried to achieve a balance between local, national and international charities in supporting Commu nity Chest, Mental Health, Can cer and World Universitiy Serv ice." AUF WILL give 25 per cent of the amount collected to Mental Health and Cancer will receive 20 per cent. WUS will benefit by 20 per cent of the amount collected and Community Chest will be given 30 per cent of the AUF money. Five per cent will go for expenses and an emergency fund. AUF, the only organization per mitted to solicit students for charitable causes, selected the four charities last spring after consulting a poll in which students expressed their preference of charities they would most like to support. . Cancer was the most fa vored charity. THE POLL and two other ob jectives were considered in the final selection of charities. The National Community Chest, The Better Business Bureau and the National Information Bureau, na tionally recognized authority on charities, were consulted before the final decision. In conjunction with the desire for a balance be tween national, international and local charities, an equality was sought between health, social and civic organizations. The newest addition to the AUF list of charities is Mental Health which will be supported for the first time this year. ALMOST HALF of the hospital beds in the United States are oc cupied by mental patients. AUF will donate 25 per cent of its rev enue to the National Association for Mental Health, a non-profit or ganization which seeks to promote MS Penny Carnival Plans Due Wednesday Initial plans and sketches for Penny Carnival booths of organ ized women's houses are due Wednesday.

"MENTAL DISEASE," Miss Colbert said, "affects more than 9,000,000 persons in the United States today about one out of every 16 in the population. In a city the size of Lincoln," she said, "that would mean that there are 6,000 persons who are victims of a mental disease." Mental Health funds support the state mental instiutions located at Lincoln, Fairbury and Hastings in an indirect manner and carry on a large nationwide research program. The Outside World By FRED DALY Staff Writer Package Plan Presented A "package plan" presented by French Premier Mendes-France at the first session of a nine-nation conference seeking unity in West European defenses may prove a tough obstacle in the way to an arms settlement. , The French Premier's new plan would link both the explosive Saar issue and close controls on armaments to a final German arms agreement. Since the end of World War II, ( France and Germany have been arguing over the control of the coal-rich Saar area. Con trolled by Germany before the war, France now controls it eco nomically, and West Germany has accused the French of trying to take it over completely. Segregation Battle Rages The racial segregation battle in Milford, Delaware, still raged Tuesday as two-thirds of the pupils in the town's newly integrated schools stayed home for the second day. Pro segregation forces in the Miiford School District held their third meeting in three days over the issue of the admission of 11 Negro students into the previously all-white high school. The mass meeting of an estimated 750 persons called for a boycott of the school. A similar situation has opened mothers sent grade school teachers home for the second straight day in protest against the admission of 13 Negro students.

Union ludyCaplan To Direct Activities By BEV DEEPE Staff Writer Activities activities, where hava you lead me? Activities activities. what will I do here? Who knows better than Judy Caplan, new Uni versity activities director. Miss Caplan suggested that per haps her activities more than any thing else has been responsible for her working in the Activities Of fice in the Union. She had par ticipated in many extra-curricular activities when she attended In diana University. SHE WAS a member of Mortar Board, the Student Senate (similar to the Student Council in organi sation, although different in repre- MISS JUDY CAPLAN " sentation). a member of Alpha Kappa Delta, national sociology honorary, and a charter member oi the Student Union. When Miss Caplan was a fresh man only male students served on the Indiana Student Union board. After a four-year study of various program, in other universities, the Union Board was made co-educational; Miss Caplan was one of the first female members to be one the board. The VII (very important In dianan) said a standing joke on the Indian campus was "Judy's majoring in extra-curricular ac tivities and minoring in sociology." Not wanting to forget her busy undergraduate days, she turned to student activity work again after a year's study at the Radcliffe Ilrvard Management Training Pro gram. Her duties as activities di rector include coordinating Union and student activities and advis ing committee chairmen and board members. WHILE AT INDIANA, Miss Cap lan majored in sociology and at i hat time thought of entering the fields of counseling guidance or btudent activity directing. Miss Caplan had thought of working as activities director in Germany be fore she accepted her present po sition. Miss Caplan observed that tha University is a "very friendly" campus and that the studenta have "a lot of spirit."
