'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
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
this summer as new house
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

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
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

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

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

papers supporting the Republican
candidate performed on a higher
level than pro-Democratic papers.

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

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

that a mistake had been made and

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

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

Miss Caplan suggested that per
haps her activities more than any
thing else has been responsible for
her working in the Activities Of

ticipated in many extra-curricular
activities when she attended In

SHE WAS a member of Mortar
Board, the Student Senate (similar
to the Student Council in organi
sation, although different in repre-
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

The VII (very important In
dianan) said a standing joke on
the Indian campus was "Judy's

Not wanting to forget her busy
undergraduate days, she turned to
