SC Representation
A petition by the Men's Co-operative
houses to give them separate
representation on the Student
Council was presented to Council
members at their meeting Wednes
day. The Council also passed three
motions to revise special elections
statutes. The first change provides
that faculty members would no
longer be required at special elec
tions, while the second says a limit
will be put on the period for in
validating an election. A re-vote
will have to be taken on the faculty
representation issue.
Dan Rasdal, elections committee
chairman, announced the member
ship of his recently organized com
mittee to investigate Ivy Day and
make recommendations to the
Council. Another committee was
formed by Murt Pickett, holdover
member, for the purpose of or
ganizing some special spring event
to let off student energies.
The Council acted upon a spe
cial petition presented by Louis
Schoen, representing the Student
Co-operative Organization, asking
for a separate member on the Stu
dent Council. The Student Co-operative
Organization is the central
organizational body of the five
m e n's independent co-operative
houses connected with the univer
sity. The Co-ops have been represent-
ed on the Council by one member,
who also represents the Men's Dor
mitories. The Co-ops felt they de
served separate representation on
the Council since they are in many
ways apart from the Men's Dorm.
Murt Pickett moved that the Coun
cil accept the petition and vote the
Co-ops a separate representative.
The motion will be acted upon at

Ike Asks For Draft Extension
President Eisenhower Thursday asked Congress to extend the draft
law four years, grant pay increases to "career" servicemen and create
a powerful military reserve to deal with any "aggressor so criminally
unwise as to attempt an atomic attack."
The President said the measures he proposed would give this
country the "proper military posture" for the first time in peacetime.
He said extension of the Selective Service Law, due to expire June so,
"is necessary because experience demonstrates that acive armea
forces of the size we must maintain cannot be raised by voluntary
enlistments alone." " ,
On pay, he proposed increases only for men willing : to , serve longer
than a minimum time, saying it is necessary to maintata g
fenced hard core of the modern fighting force." Calling for "J"
rise, Eisenhower said there should be no ease for of hcers in the
first three years of their service and none in the first two years for
enlisted men.
Court Martial For Red Informant
- The Army plans a court martial next monft for Master Sergeant
WiluVm H Olson on charges of informing on his buddies while a
prisoner of the Reds in Korea. t ,
Olson was charged with eight counts of violating an article of the
Uniform Code of Military Justice concerning communication w tn an
enemy, an offense punishable by death. The Army said Olson is one
of some 40 former POWs slated for such charges.
Olson said he was "completely amazed" by the charges and knew
of "no foundation" for .them except, possibly, a paper he read to
fellow prisoners in Korea requesting the United Nations to help end the
war. i j
McCarthy Target's Promotion Canceled
Sen. Joe McCarthy (R-Wis) said Wednesday night the Army had
promoted to corporal a doctor who had invoked the Fifth Amendment
on questions about Communism. A few hours later, the Army reported
Pfc. Marvin S. Beisty's promotion had been canceled and his com
mander reprimanded. 1
McCarthy, who likened the Belsky case to that of . the former
Army dentist Maj. Irving Peress, said he had learned the promotion
was made "within the last six weeks." He said he had asked for a
report from the Army. Belsky is on the medical staff at Murphy
General Hospital, Waltham, Mass.
At Waltham, Col. Arthur J. Redland, the commanding officer,
declined comment and a hospital spokesman said Belsky was on leave
until Jan. 19. He could not be located for possible comment.
Told of the Army announcement, McCarthy said he would be
"curious to see an explanation of why they waited until our subcom
mittee got into the matter before acting."
Thoreson Freauf, Teachers.
Co-ops Seek
cil strike from its By-Laws the
section requiring a faculty member
to be present at all special elec
tions. He argued it was difficult to
get faculty members to "sit around
that long" and a Student Council
member would be on hand at elec
tions anyway
Dick Fellman then stated that
faculty members might serve as
an added safeguard against fraud
at special elections. Rasdal an
swered that faculty members could
be as easily deceived as Student
Council members and pointed out
that if the Council is to keep the
law, and require faculty members
at all elections, then the Council
must automatically invalidate any
election held without faculty su
pervisor, whether that election is
fair or not.
Norm Veitzer said that since the
Student Council is going to publicly
bear the criticism for any election
difficulties, as it did in the Honor
ary Commandant election investi
gation, then the Council might as
well have complete jurisdiction
over elections. The motion failed
the first time but was reconsid
ered and passed the second time,
20 to 8. Jack Rogers, Council presi
dent, announced that it will have
to be voted upon again since origi
nally it was supposed 20 votes did
not constitute two-thirds of t h e
Council, and the question was an
nounced as defeated at the meet

tion which is not invalidated with

After discussion. Rasdal changed
the time limit to within 72 hours
after the closing of polls, and the
motion carried.
Ai the last order of business:
the Student Council discussed the
recent action by the University to'
investieate fraternities for drink
ing violations, but no action was
taken upon the subject. The Coun
cil finally decided to bring up the
problem in the next Cornhusker.

Student Inquiries
Henninger Explains
Inspecting Functions
Students are urged by the Uni
versity's two new investigators to
ask questions of them and seek
explanations regarding the cur
rent liquor situation, Lt. E. R
Henninger said in a Nebraskan
interview Thursday. .
Lt. Henninger, hired by the
University with Luther Yeck as
special investigators, is a mem
ber of the Lincoln Police Depart
ment in charge of checking tavern
reports. He and Yeck were hired
because of their experience as
liquor inspectors.
Yeck, formally with the State
Highway Patrol, was until recent
ly a deputized state sheriff and a
qualified liquor inspector employed
by the state liquon commission.

seek other employment, Tal Coon-

Photographic Productions is and
he'll say, "Beats me!" This re
porter always heard it referred
to as photo lab around the Corn
husker and Nebraskan offices and
concluded that it was just a still
photography service.
A visit to the west stadium and
the home of Photographic Pro
ductions was an eye-opener. From
a two-man laboratory equipped
primarily for still pictures back
in 1946. it has grown into a com
plex organization working in all
phases of the specialized techniqu
es and aesthetics of photography,
The staff now consists of twelve
full-time employees and eight part
time workers who are students.
Wendell Hoffman, the manager,
studied photography at the Uni
versity of Iowa School of Journal
ism before coming to the Univer
sity in 1946. Photographic Pro
ductions was organized in 1939 un
der the direction of Ray Morgan,
assistant professor of journalism
at the University.

mnger said.
The pair have been working for
the University since October, he
said. They do not have a set pat
tern of inspection, the number of
nights work in a week usually de
pending on the social schedule for
the week.
"I hope the fraternities and
sororities will ask us in to explain
the situation," Henninger urged.
Both men will be glad to clear
up any doubts or questions stu
dents have on liquor laws and
. Pressure From Taxpayers
Henninger said one question was
looming large in the students'
minds as to how much authority
the inspectors have. Both men
arp qualified by the University to
see that liquor laws are not vio
lated on the campus. These in
clude state and city laws.
Henninger said pressure from
people out in the state have come
to the state legislature regarding
drinking on the campus. They are
interested from the point of the
taxpayer and parent, he explained.
Students do not realize the teriffic
pressure applied by the home
folks, he said.
As to whether the inspectors
would actually search fraternity
houses for liquor, Henninger said
they would not unless the situation
called for it. If it were apparent
that much drinking was going on
in a house, the officers would first
get a legalized search warrant be
fore any search was made.
"I don't think that situation
would ever arise," he said.
Assume Innocence
If a student is picked up on sus
picion of drinking, he said, "if
there is any possible way, we ex
plain the situation, and give any
benefit of the doubt first."
In dealing with fraternity houses,
the inspectors will assume the
houses are living up to their agree
ment with the Universiy that no
liquor is on the premises. Unless
the situation calls for it, there
should be no grounds for investi
If there is drinking at a party
sponsored by a fraternity or soror
ity, it will be up to the group's
officers to explain to the admin
istration that the drinking was
not sanctioned.
Individual Violations

drinking, they will be arrested be
cause of individual violation of
state and city laws. It will not be

Hackbart's biggest job at the

Louie "Satchmo" Armstrong, noted jazz musician,
will play for the Interfraternity Council Ball, Friday,
March 11 at the Turnpike Ballroom.
IFC's intention was to present a good band at reason
able prices, Bill DeViies, IFC president said. Bill Tomsen,
Phi Delta Theta, is in charge of arrangements for the
dance. Tomsen is IFC social chairman.
Cost for presentation of "Satchmo" will be a $2000
promotional deal, according to DeVries.
Tentative plans are being madei
to present a scholarship award at
the dance, DeVries said. Accord
ing to present plans it will be rec
ognition of the fraternity which
has raised its house average the
most during a given semester.
Armstrong started playing the
cornet in a New Orleans reform
school, Waifs' Home for Boys. He
didn't learn to read music until
later in his career.
"Stretchln' Out"
Fletcher Henderson, jazz orches
tra leader, gave Armstrong his
first job with a name jazz band
in 1924. After playing a year in
New York, Armstrong returned to
New Orleans, where he could play
his "stretchin out" style.
. "I got my professional start in
the flask-toting Twenties when
people wanted their music hot,"
Armstrong said in his autobiog
raphy. In 1952, Armstrong was elected
to the Jazz Hall of Fame, which
is sponsored by "Downbeat" mag
According to the Chicago "De
fender," Armstrong is one of the
greatest jazz coronetists in the
United States.
Armstrong has recorded with
both the Columbia and Decca re
cording companies, and has been
awarded the Esquire Gold Medal.
He is credited in music journ
als with having done more for
the Negro in commercial .music
than any other musician. Arm
strong has done several Broad
way revues and motion pictures
A six-man orchestra and a vo
calist will comprise the group to
appear in Lincoln. This group has
made all of Armstrong's latest
recordings with him.
"Heebie Jeebies," "Muskrat

most famous hits.

Speaks Today
"Brain-washing Its Purpose and
Techniques, and How to Meet It"
will be the topic of a speech by Dr.
John D. Hayes at a Student-Faculty
Seminar Friday at 4 p.m. in the
Union Faculty lounge.
Dr. Hayes, a prisoner of the
Communists for 10 months, will
tell what he learned of the People's
government when he was in Chi
nese prison. He was released in
September of 1952 after surviving
the brain-washing techniques.
He also has carried responsi
bilities in mission administration,
including many years as executive
secretary of the North China Mis
sion. A major emphasis in his work
has been fostering the growth of
the-Chinese Church, student evan
gelism and the student Christian
movement in North China.
The processor is being built on I
the basis of parts of such a ma-
chine which were brought from
New York. Staff members have
been working on it in their spare
time during the past year, and
they expect to complete it within
two months.
