I UUOMV Jo Conduct Two Courses Beginning German and a history of Nebraska course will be the first full credit unfversity courses offered over KUON-TV, the Uni versity Extension Division an nounced. - The German I course will be taught by Dr. William K. Pfeiler, professor of Germanic Languages, and instructing History 129 over television will be James C. Olson, associate professor of history. Although the Extension Division has offered other non-credit cours esover local television, this will be the first time it has taught credit course. The University plans td add several full-credit courses for television next year but has no definite plans. On the basis of the number of free pamphlets sent out by the University to viewers following the non-credit courses, the Extension Division expects no more than forty enrolled in each of the credit courses. German I is a five hour credit course and will be televised each Monday and Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. History 129, a two-hour course, is offered on Tuesday and Thursday at 10:30 a.m. Both cours es start Feb. 8 and will run for 16 weeks. Persons interested in taking ei ther of these courses for university credit may write the Extension Di vision, KUON-TV, Lincoln 8, Ne- braska. . Enrollment fees will be $7.50 per credit hour plus cost of text books and $1.50 for course mate rial. The history textbook is $5.00, and the German I textbooks total $4.45. The only costs to non-credit viewers who wish to follow the courses will be those of the text books. . Judges To Select Beauties Tuesday Judging of Beauty Queens will be Tuesday, at 7 p.m. in Room 313 of the Union. Judges are Mary E. Michaud, Instructor in clothing and textiles; Robert P. Durrie, buyer in ladies ready-to-wear for Magee's; Duane E. Lake, managing director of the Union, and Richard H. Blomgren, down-town photographer. Candidates were apportioned among organized houses according to the number of Cornhuskers sold by Tassels representatives in the houses. - . Psychiatry Master's In Approved By Regents The University Board of Regents Saturday approved the addition of a .Master's degree in psychiatric nursing. The master's degree will be the first advanced degree of any type offered in the state for nursing. The University will be one of 14 schools in the nation to offer such a 'degree. y Dr. Cecil L. Wittson, chairman of the Department of Neurology and Psychiatry and director of the Ne braska Psychiatric Institute, said the graduate course will aid in meeting the need for training qual ified nurses for Nebraska's ment al hospitals. At present Nebraska has less than 50 nurses trained in this fild in the entire state mental hospitals. "Nebraska should have about 300 nurses, according to the American psychiatric Association's stan dards," Dr. wittson said. Another advantage of the pro Journalism, Speech mm- - VGSfl The revision of five journalism and speech courses to include in tensive training, both theoretical and practical,' in the field of tele vision was announced by the School j of Journalism and the department : of speech. I 'The revisions will become effec tive at the start of the second se mester. The facilities of the University's new educational television station, KUON-TV, will be used to provide laboratory training for students. In using equipment valued at more than $100,000, the students will as sist in the actual staging of tele vision programs. They will work as community writers, photogra phers, newsmen, cameramen, floor managers, audio men, announcers and directors. Dr. Leroy T. Laase, chairman of the department of speech, an nounced the following changes in the Speech courses: Speech 75 is an introductory course in the field of radio and television. Previously, the three hour credit course was restricted to radio. The course will represent two hours of lectures and three hours of laboratory work each week. Speech 128 is a three-hour credit course entitled Television Produc tion. The course formerly was de voted to radio programming. The revised course wilK discuss the the Vol. 55, No. 41 'Routine Administrative Matter1 ET""3 it a T ClfDeck Two part-time "security officers" have been hired by the University as part of the administration's program banning, illegal use of alcoholic beverages by students. The hirings were first announced by Associate Dean for Men Frank M. Hallgren during a meeting of the Inter fraternity Council last week. In presenting the plan to IFC delegates, Hallgren stressed the fact that the plan was "not a new one." He pointed out the hiring of the two enforcement "security officers" was a "routine adminis trative matter. In an interview Monday after noon Hallgren said the two men had been hired as part of a long range plan that dated back to the days when Dean (T.J.) Thompson was a member of the University staff. He explained the most re cent administrative move as "rou tine" by noting similar checking operations by the University. "When funds became available," he said, "we began checking the kitchens of organized houses." By making the checks, we did not and do not imply that all organized houses have kitchens filled with vermin," Hallgren said. However, it was our responsi bility to make certain students did have their food prepared under sanitary conditions and we felt we should make certain these condi tions did prevail, he continued. This new program, Hallgren added, is much the same. Frater nities have cooperated fully with us in enforcing the regulations concerning use of alcoholic bever ages on the campus andor in their houses; however it is necessary that we (the administration) do our part in enforcing the rules. Two Officers The two "security officers" work on a part-ttime basis and are em powered to make checks at fra ternity social functions as well as periodic investigations of fraternity houses throughout the week. Ac cording to Hallgren, these men have been instructed to check on houses for other infractions of Uni versity rules than driking. "However," Hallgren said, "in fractions of rules on drinking ate Nursing gram, Dr. Wittson said, is that any graduate nurse may take individ ual courses, even though not plan ning to obtain a degree. The program which will be under the Department of Neurology and Psychiatry will begin immediate ly, Dr. Wittson said. Theresa G. Muller, professor of nursing and director of nursing education for the Nebraska Psychiatric Insti tute, will supervise the program. The advanced course will be sup ported by U.S. Public Health Service and Board of Control funds. The new program won praise from Mrs. Irma S. Kyle, presi dent of the Nebraska State Nursing-Association who said, "This is additional evidence that the University of Nebraska is assum ing its responsibility to the State." Although the graduate degree is important, added emphasis has been given by allowing nurses to take individual courses." basic theory of television and the integration of theater, films and radio in television programming.

It is in this area the two 'security officers' will be most in terested." When asked why the program was not announced earlier in the year, Hallgren said that the ad ministration was not certain prop erly trained personnel would be available. He added that addition al "security officers" may be hired in the future or there may be changes in personnel. Credentials Explained In explaining the powers of the two men, Hallgren said they car ried credentials signed by the Chancellor which identified them as bona fide employees of the Uni versity. He said the two officers could be refused permission to en ter a fraternity house. However, Hallgren explained, such an action by a fraternity is an obvious indication that organi zation is not interested in cooper ating with the administration. In explaining the reasons for taking this most recent action, Hallgren emphasized the fact that any community of nearly 7,000 persons, no matter how law abid ing, finds it necessary to maintain and support a police's force. He noted the administration is held responsible for University students by the people who support this University and that it is only logi cal the rules aimed at promoting good citizenship and living condi tions for students be enforced. Careful Checking Hallgren pointed out that the ad ministration cannot be satisfied thaji.. University regulations we be ing lived up to simply by having an idea that things are as they should be. "We must, back up our ideas with information," he said, "and careful checking is an effec tive way to get accurate informa tion." - In pointing out the sources of in creased public demand for Univer sity responsibility for student life, Hallgren noted University officials are literally bombarded with ques tions about student life at the Uni versity when Uimt make public ap pearances throughout the state. "It would hardly dor" Hallgren said,v"for us to inform parents and relatives that University students are on their own when they come to Lincoln." "In the final analysis," Hallgren concluded, "I believe this inspec tion program will not become harsh or unreasonable." Brubeck Tickets Ticket sales for Dave Brubeck's jazz performance, Jan. 18, are "moving well," according to Judy Kaplan, Union activities director. ine tickets selling for $1.50 are almost completely sold out. Mati nee tickets and evening tickets selling for $1.25 are moving steady. of all laboratory work. Credit will be one or two hours. Laase said the speech courses will be taught by Dr. Clarence Flick, assistant professor of speech and radio, who, in addition to earn ing his Ph.D at Northwestern Uni versity last summer, attended the NBC Television Institute in Chi cago. 1 i Workshop shows over KUON-TV, the Uni- versity television station, fte new radio.televi. si0n course, students will get practical training in studio work. Lincoln, Nebraska By SAM JENSEN Copy Editor Questions of legality and authority in the administration's enforcement of the University drinking policies have recently come into con sideration by the student body and faculty. , The Nebraska constitution gives the Board of Student Affairs, is charged with the gen government of the University," and the Board of Regents, in turn, gives the Dean of the Di vision of Student Affairs the authority to "have supervision of all relationships between stu dents and the University." I The Dean of Student Affairs is responsible for the discipline of all students. The associate Dean for Men, who functions under the Dean of Student Afafirs, is charged with the gen- 1 eral supervision of conduct and welfare of all men students in the University. The Board of Regents' By-Laws state that "Students are expected to obey the laws of the state and nation, to conduct themselves in accordance with the rules of morality and decency which obtain in well-ordered commu nities and to refrain from any conduct injurious . to the good name of the University." Suspension, probation and dismissal is jus tified by the Regents' by-law that states "A student violating rules shall be liable t6 sus pension, and for a flagrant violation of the rules shaff be liable to dismissal from the , University." There has been no special order by the Board of Regents authorizing any group of inspectors or enforcement officers to inspect fraternity houses, but this action is taken through power granted to the Dean of Student Affairs to enforce state, national and Univer sity laws. In a statement entitled "University of Ne- List Interviewed USA IMlv if 's VITD By ROGER HENKLE Staff Writer "More and more young musi cians are getting their education in America," Eugene List, con cert pianist, said in an interview before his concert Sunday. List, who is one of the few lead ing concert pianists educated in the United States, said he felt the two world wars have started a trend toward musical education in this country. "There was a time," he said, "when it was imperative to study abroad. Now the training oppor tunities are just as good here." Initial Training Important He recommended that an aspiring young musician go to teachers who Dr. William Swindler, director of the School- of Journalism, listed the following course revisions of fered by the School. Journalism 198, Television Jour nalism, is a continuation of Radio Journalism 197. The three-hour credit course will emphasize the adaptation of radio journalism principles to television One of the features of the course will be ex periments in presenting news by television. Swindler and Dr. L. John Martin, assistant professor, will instruct the course. Journalism 173 is a three-hour credit course entitled Photography for Television Production. Ray F. Morgan, assistant" professor, will teach the uses of photography in television, including still pictures, slides and motion pictures. All laboratory work at KUON-TV will be under the supervision of the station's staff. Jack McBride, di rector, who has a master's degree from Northwestern; Robert Schlat er, producer-director who has a master's from Columbia, and Nor ris Heineman, producer-director who has a master's from Syracuse University. Students may register for, these courses during the, regular regis tration period next week. (For other new courses and cor rections to the schedule book, see Page 4, Col. 2). Fr TV ffkirs aonflEe injys AIM liquor Laws Explained Musicians will give him stimulating, careful training. "The initial training is very im portant, and often one must go to the larger cities like New York, Chicago, or Philadelphia for the best teachers," List said. List himself studied with pianist Olga Samaroff at the Philadelphia Conservatory. - Meets Wishnow At his concert with the Lincoln Symphony, Eugene List first met University Orchestr- Conductor Emanuel Wishnow, when Wishnow was con:ert master with the Lin coln orchestra. List and Wishnow have many mutual friends in New York, and they spent one recent summer together in New York City. He said he felt that one of his most interesting concerts was one he gave with the French Radio Orchestra right after the last war. "I was still in my Army uniform, and I think the audience expected another inexperienced G.I." ' List Heard By Capacity Audience A capacity, crowd of University students and Lincoln music lovers listened to Eugene List, renowned pianist, solo with the University Symphony Orchestra Sunday in the Union Ballroom. List's major work of the even ing was the well-known "Piano Concerto in C Minor, No. 2" by Rachmaninoff. List also played Haydn's "Con certo in F Major" for violin and piano, with the violin part played by Orchestra Conductor Emanuel Wishnow, a distinguished , violin ist in his own right. The Haydn composition required a string sec tion, supplied by the Orchestra. The program began with the Overture to "Russian and Lud milla," an introduction to an opera by Glinia. Between, the Haydn and Rachmanioff pieces, the orchestra also played Mussorgsky's .. "A Night on Bald Mountain" and "Pre lude, Choral and Fugue" by Bach and Abert. The enthusiastic audience brought List back for an encore, which was Chopin's "Waltz in C Sharp Minor." Tuesday, January 11, 1955 i n fl nlfllT braska Policy on Student Use of Alcoholic Beverages," released during the first weik in October, the Chancellor and Board of Regents said, "The University is unequivocally opposed to (a) any sanction of use of liquor in, violation of state law and city ordinances; and (b) for bids the use of liquor at any social event. "The University must, therefore, accept the responsibility for exercising such disciplinary measures (up to and including expulsion) for offenses against state law, city ordinances and University rules, even though offenders must also suffe:r prosecution by civil authority." The credentials that the inspectors working for the office of Student Affairs carry do not constitute a search warrant, but only insure organizations that these persons are duly con stituted representatives of the University, x Sections of the national and Nebraska con stitutions state that the rights of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable search with out issue of a search warrant shall not be de nied. The sections referred to are Section Seven, Article One of the Nebraska Constitu tion and the Fourth Amendment to the Na tion Constitution. These inspectors might possibly be in viola tion of these statutes if they were to force their way into fraternity houses; but according to Associate Dean for Men Frank Hallgren, these inspectors will not intrude if they are told not to. What action will be taken if a fraternity refuses the inspectors admission to their house, or if a fraternity member refuses the inspec tors entrance to his room, has not been posi tively stated by the administration, although it has been indicated that some disciplinary action will be taken." Stirf Song List commented that each year he finds his viewpoint changes toward piano-playing and toward certain pieces. Sometimes when his concerts "bunch up" on him, he feels he must practice as much as possible. "Sometimes you get too close to a piece and have to wait sev eral years before you can come back to it with a fresh viewpoint." The Outside World By FRED DALY Staff Writer More Weight For Cold War: Ike President Eisenhower Monday asked Congress to throw more of America's economic weight into the cold war against communism by reducing tariffs, granting tax concessions to business investment abroad and continuing technical aid to underdeveloped countries. Mr. Eisenhower laid down a seven-point program of foreign eco nomic policy which he said would help to open new .markets for U.S. exports as well as strengthen free nations against "communist pene tration and subversion. He described the program as "moderate, grad ual and reciprocal." . ' . . , Its mam feature was a renewal of last year's request for a three year extension of the Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act, with authority to reduce tariffs by five per cent each year. He also made recommendations for encouraging greater tourist travel abroad and increasing U.S. participation in international trade fairs. Communist Leader Lightfoot On Trial Communist leader Claude Lightfoot went on trial Monday in the U.S. government's first court attempt to prove that mere membership in the Communist party is a crime. The triaL-of the 38-year-old executive secretary of th$ Illinois Communist party was the first court test of a Smith Act clause which makes it a crime, "to become a member of, or affiliate with" any group which teaches, advocates or encourages the violent overthrow of the U.S. government. ' Lightfoot was also the first Red leader to face trial alone. The 81 persons previously convicted under the Smith Act were tried for conspiracy to organize groups working for the government's overthrow not for merely being a member of such a group. If convicted, Lightfoot could be sentenced to 10 years in prison and maximum fine of $10,000. Such a conviction could also set the stage for the arrest and imprisonment of thousands of otker American Communists. ; New Subversion Safeguard Urged The Senate Investigations Subcommittee said "the Communist Party has successfully infiltrated national defense industries." New legal safeguards against possible subversion and espionage were urged In a report by the subcommittee on a probe conducted under the chairmanship of Sen. Joe McCarthy (R-Wis). The report made these two recommendations: 1. That Congress authorize government agencies to bar persons believed to be disposed to commit sabotage, espionage or other, sub version from defense plants. 4 2. That the Defense Department "prepare adequate security regu lations preventing the employment of and ordering the removal of Communists in establishments producing materials ur.Jer the national defense program regardless of whether the employment is In con nection with classified work." NUCWA To Discuss Language Foreign languages and their na tional importance will be discussed at a meeting of the Nebraska Uni versity Council of World Affairs Tuesday at 7:15 p.m. Contrary to previous announce ments, the meeting will be held in Love Library Auditorium. Language Instructors Three foreign .language instruc tors will discuss "Foreign Lan guages and the National Interest" and will then leave the topic open for audience questions. Members of the panel are John Winkelman, assistant professor of Germanic languages; Lloyd D. Teale, assistant professor of Ro mance Languages, and Charles Colman, associate professor of Ro mance Languages. Speakers New Goal Colman, chairman of the panel, explained foreign languages are more important to Americans than ever before because of improved transportation and communication. The emphasis of foreign language instruction has changed, Colman said, from one of reading literature to compreehnsion and speaking ability of the language. One of the most important de velopments in the foreign language field, Colman said, has been its teaching to elementary school pu pils. "It has been conclusively shown students in the pre-adolescent pe riod are able to learn a foreign language with greater facility than older children or adults," Colman said. UN Project Twenty-five universities (includ ing the University) have been in vited to undertake local consultation-discussions by the Citizen Con sulations which grew out of the United States Commission for United Nations UNESCO projects.'" Other issues in this series which will be discussed at later NUCWA meetings include Americans an in ternational traveler and host, American interest in underdevel oped areas and moral and spiritual resources for international cooperation. Psychology Professors To Lecture The department of psychology will present the first of two sym posia to be held this year on Thurs day and Friday in Room 201 So cial Science Hall.
