and the United States.
The three Asian members-Pakistan, Thailand and the Philippines-have

India had abstained from the General Assembly vote under which
Hammarskjold is making his trip.and therefore could not associate
itself fuly with the mission. Hammkrskjold had his only meeting with
Nehru Monday morning when they tilked alone for two hour, and were
then joined by other Indian officials.
Neither Nehru nor Krishna Menon had been at the airport to greet
Hammarskjold on arrival. Only lower ranking officials none of min

Symphony Orchestra in its annual
concert Sunday, Jan. 9, at 8 p.m.,
in the Union Ballroom.
No admission will be charged
but it is necessary to secure a
ticket. Tickets will be available

Each person will be allowed two
tickets, but students must pre
sent their ID cards.
List made his musical debut at
the age of ten when he appeared
with the Los Angeles Philharmonic
Orchestra. At 13 he received a
scholarship to study under Olga
phonist Paul Desmond with Bru
beck at the piano. Drummer Joe
Dodge and Bss Player Bob Bates
complete the group.
Popularity Pons
Last year Brubeck won "Down
Beat's" popularity and critics poll
and "Metronome's" All-Star Poll.
"Man, they wail!" wrote the Jazz
Editor of "Down Beat." The Co
lumbian Records' jazz expert who
brought them to that recording co
pany said, "A kind of teamwork
which is without parallel in the
entire field of music."
Introducing what many call to be
a new kind of jazz, Brubeck's
quartet had its start on the West
coast. ' It has now grown to na
tional jazz appeal, especially on
college campuses. The quartet has
played at Zardi's in Los Angeles,
Boston's Storyville and Manhatt
an's Basin Street and recently
gave a concert in Carnegie Hall.
Recording Star
Last June Brubeck made hii
first record, "Jazz ' Goes to Col
lege," and it outsold other re
cording artists for four months,
Brubeck thinks that the popu
larity of jazz reflects the Ameri
can scene. It is tremendously com
plex, but free, he believes.
A six-page article of Brubeck's
life stvle and personality was pub
lished in the Nov. 8 issue of Time
Time describes Brubeck's style
as "creating an illusion of danger,
as if he were a race driver who
says Pave, is going to stay out
there until he drives faster than
anyone else."
Brubeck thinks his technique is
getting smoother all the time.
"Everything we play is superim
posed on the tune, and each chor
us is superimposed on the one be
fore it."

friendship of Harry S. Truman.
Two European Tours
Two tours of Europe and several
full-scale recital tours of this coun

Chief Journalist Harvey J. Da

the Navy department, "will begin
work under the Secretary of Navy
this week.
Davis will leave for Washing
ton, D.C. Wednesday where he will
work in the office of chief of
Navy information in the public in
formation section of the Pentagon.
He will be concerned with public
information media released
through the office of the Secre
tary of Navy.
Lack of Publicity
When Davis joined the Univer
sity 15 months ago ,he saw the
need for Nebraska high school stu
dents to receive a more unbiased
view of their military responsi
bilities. Scholarships for regular
ROTC students were not being ap
plied for because of this lack of
The native of Mesquite, Tex.,
started a "selling campaign" that
took him to 28 Nebraska high
schools the first year his program
was instituted. The following year
he traveled 7,000 miles in two and
one-half months as he visited 75
high schools.
Applications Increase
The results of Davis' work are
obviously noticeable. Applications
for ROTC scholarships increased
by 150 percent. The state super
intendent of schools lauded Davis'
program which attempted to fit
the military, responsibility of high
school students into their life plans.
Explaining the part this program
played in Davis' recall to the
Pentagon, Capt. W. O. Gallery,
professor of naval science, said
officials in Washington "realize
the splendid publicity work" that
the officer has done. .
Retirement Planned
Davis will retire from the serv
ice this summer after 20 years of
service. He plans to return to
Washington state to work in the
field of Chamber of Commerce
publicity work after retirement.
"I believe my stay on the Uni
versity campus has been some of
the most rewarding years of my
life," Davis said. I had the oppor
tunity to meet such interesting
people and to attend some Uni
versity classes which would have
been impossible for me other
wise." Davis was editor of the Whid-
bey Island, Wash., station paper
from 1950 to 1953. He was sta
tioned in China in 1946 and 1947.

Writes Book
On President
Robert J. Morgan, assistant pro
fessor of political science, has com
pleted a book on the administra
tion of President John Tyler, 1841
44. Tyler, who was the first vice
president to succeed to the presi
dency, had one of the politically
turbulent administrations in Amer
ican history, according to Morgan.
Each president has formed his
own conception of constitutional
theory and practice and the book
is a study of Tyler's policy and the
issues he faced, Morgan said.
The book, "A Whig in Battle,"
deals with Tyler's departure from
the traditional Whig party line and
his vigorous use of the veto power.
Tyler was the first president since
Jackson's administration to invoke
the veto frequently.
Tyler also vetoed a bill to re
charter the United States Bank,
continuing the war on national
banks started in the Jackson ad
ministration. Benjamin Harrison, who was
elected to the presidency in 3840,
died after a month in office leav
ing Tyler to succeed to the presi
dency. "Tyler was one of most obscure
v. sidents and also one of our
worst ones," Morgan said. These
factors are two of the reasons
Morgan chose his administration
as the subject of his book.
Issues peculiar to that period
show Tyler's interpretation of his
political power as president, Mor
gan continued.
His foreign policy and free use
of power are also discussed in the
book. "Tyler decided to be a pow
erful president and there would
be no monkey business about it,"
Morgan said.
Morgan has been at the Univer
sity since 1951. He received his
doctor of philosophy degree from
the University of Virginia.
Humor Magazine
Meeting Planned
Students interested in promot

pose of making plans for raising
the necessary money and select
ing a temporary staff.

previous metings and others who
want to work on promoting a cam
pus magazine may attend this or

standing faculty member and a student with this title.
Rules governing the nomination and selection of the candidates have been
changed this year to make it clear
to student and faculty members
just how the winner will be nomin

has been considerable confusion as
to who was eligible for the award
and how the winner was selected.
The new rules are:
1. The candidate must have
made outstanding contributions to
the University.
2. The candidate must either be
a senior or graduate student or
faculty member who has served
two years as a staff member.
3. Anyone may make nomina
tions. 4. Candidate must not be con
nected with The Nebraskan in any
way as a staff member, reporter,
columnist or member of the Com
mittee on Student Publications.
5. A letter of nomination must
be submitted in writing and signed
by the person making the appli
cation, although the name of the
person making the nomination will
be kept confidential.
S. The letter of nomination be
comes the property of The Ne
braskan. Any andor all parts of
the nomination are subject to re
print in The Nebraskan.
7. Winners of faculty and stu
d e n t "Outstanding Nebraskan"
awards will be decided upon by a
vote of the paid staff members of
The Nebraskan.
During the second semester last
year, Don Olson, assistant profes
sor of speech and coach of the de
bate squad, and Eldon Park, a sen
ior in Business Administration and
president of Innocents Society and
Builders and vice-president of Stu
dent Council, won the "Outstand
ing Nebraskan" awards.
The first semester winners were
W. V. Lambert, dean of the Col
lege of Agriculture, and Eleanor

eight hours on Sunday because it
is able to limit staff service to one
full-time employee and student
assistants. Iowa library keeps
open until midnight on weekdays

Registration For Classes
Dr. Hoover Explains
The following explanation from
the office of Dr. Floyd Hoover, di
rector of Registration and Records,
concerns the two-fifth rule in re
gard to registration for classes.
"For several years there has
been a steady drift toward a Mon
day, Wednesday, Friday morning
pattern of classes. Two separate
surveys of the extent to which our
classrooms and laboratories, par
ticularly our classrooms, are used
showed clearly that we are not
making maximum use of our fa
cilities. They are used heavily
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
mornings, but in the afternoons,
especially Tuesday and Thursday
afternoons, a disturbingly large
number of our classrooms lie idle.
"The situation was brought into
focus once again when we as
sembled the schedule of classes
for the second semester of the
current year. We encountered al
most as much difficulty in assign
ing classrooms as we did in 1949
when our enrollment was in the
neighborhood of 10,000. On Mon
day, Wednesday, and Friday morn
ings our classrooms are used al
most to the saturation point. At
other times, however, we have
ample space.
"Unless this drift is arrested,
money must be found to provide
more classrooms and more in
structor" for" Monday, Wednesday
and Friday morning classes to
take care of our present enroll
ment, to say nothing of enroll
ments in the near future which
bear promise of increasing. In
view of the fact that we have
classroom space to take care of
our immediate needs, asking for
money seems hardly justifiable
when all we need to do is make
better use of the space we have.
"We are- asking, therefore, that
each student assume his share of
the responsibility for utilizing
more fully our facilities by sched
uling two-fifths of his classes and
laboratories in the afternoons or
on Tuesday, Thursday or Satur

NU Fellowship Program
Receives Woods Grants
Two fellowship programs and
a community development plan will
be established at the University
because of $68,000 recently con
tributed by the Woods Charitable
Fund, Inc., of Lincoln to the Uni
versity Foundation.
Of the total gift, $40,000 will be
used to establish a special fund
to encourage scholarship in the
humanities through the sponsorship
of a leave-of-absence-with-pay pro-
hours on Sunday. In the whole
area, only Love Librar is closed.
Frank Lundy, director of Uni
versity libraries, has stated his de
sire to open the library on Sunday.
The Student Council has passed a
resolution expressing their support
of extending the hours. Jack Rog
ers, president of the Council, will
appoint two Council members to
meet regularly with library depart
ment heads to discuss library prob
lems and student suggestions.
The first step toward adding Sun
day hours has already been taken.
The University budget for the next
two years, which includes a re
quest for $7,401 a year to finance
this extension of service, has been
submitted to the state legislature
for approval.
Sometime this month the legis
lature will set up a committee to
investigate the budget request, and
in the spring the budget will be
voted upon for approval. For sev
eral years the University Budget
has included the request for addi
tional funds to extend thu library
hours, but the total budget has
never been approved.

day mornings. It Is not fair to
ask only some to assume the re
sponsibility. The rule must b
uniformly applied,
"Some students are likely to
protest the application of the two
fifths rule on the grounds thr: it
denies the privilege of free choice
of hours. Free choice, however,
has been exercised by only the
lucky ones who registered first.
The less lucky have too often been
forced to enroll in whatever was
available. So free choice is, after
all, only relative, and it exists for
only some students.
"Others are likely to protest that
the application of the rule will in
terfer with their work schedules.
This may be true in the cases of
students who are undertaking mora
outside work than is reasonable.
But let me quote from page SO of
the current General Information
''Remember that carrying a full
load of 15 or 16 credit hours is a
full-time job. It means that you
will spent at least IS or 16 hours
a week in class and at least 39
hours studying. That make a 4S
hour week. If you plan to work
outside of school about 15 hours a
week, you will be undertaking 60
hours of work each week. Ask
yourself if you are willing to work
ten hours each -day six day a
week for the next nine or ten
months. A few students have un
dertaken even more than that, but
all too frequently their grades suf
fered and they have been unable
to gain as much as they should
from the University.
'If outside employment is nec
essary, you should ordinarily reg
ister for less than the usual num
ber of credit hours. You might be
obliged to attend school an extra
summer or two, but you will at
least have sufficient time to earn
good grades and at the same time
take an active part in campus life.'
