The approach of spring presents
different questions and ideas to the
verare college student To some
students spring means convertibles,
to others exams, to others it means

Did you ever take x oology 172?
Do you have a good alarm clock?
Do you know what to do if a bee
stings you? If you dont know the
answers to these questions you

about the birds and the bees re
gardless of what your parents have
Joseph Murphy, instructor in zo
ology and anatomy, said that as a
class, he believes that birds have
more universal appeal to the hu
mans than cattle or hogs.
Ns First Robia
In explaining the migrative hab
its of the various species of birds,
Murphy commented that there aint
such a thing as the first robin of
spring. Be explained that robins
are residents of Nebraska all year
around. According to Murphy, rob
ins from the north reside in Ne
braska during the winter and then
precede to their summer home late
in the spring.
Murphy commented that the first
birds to be seen orerhecd in the
Dr. William F. Swindler, direc
tor of the School of Journalism, is
the author of a textbook, "Prob
lems of Law in Journalism.'
The book, published this week
by the MacmiHan Company of
New York, deals with the cc
sotutianal provisions relating to
freedom of expression and with se
lected areas of law affecting
cewsgathering and business ac
tivities of newspapers, advertis
ing and radio Journalism.
Swondler received his Ph. D. In
political science and public law
from the University of Missouri
in 1942. Heistheauthorrta

o Journalism'' published in 1947

spring are of the waterfowl group.
Mallards tend to remain in Ne
braska the year around if condi
tions are favorable. Their move
ments are seen about March 20.
In April the songbirds come
north, weither staying in Nebraska
or merely passing through in the
flight further north. Among these
song birds is the mourning dove.
By the first of May Murphy com
mented, almost -11 the residents
such as the Baltimore orioles and
the wrens, have arrived.
Murphy said that in order to
meet the increasing interest in the
noooy ot bird studying a course
is offered in the zoology depart'
ment. This course is called orni
thology or zoology 172. Ornithology
is concerned with the biology of
birds and their behavior and is not
Bird - Watching
Although 6 a.m. seems a little
early to arise on Saturday morn
ing, Murphy related how the 172
lab meets at this time in the late
spring to be able to observe the
birds when they are the most ac
tive. The early part of the semes
ter course deals with the anatomy
and classification of birds.
The other half of the "facts of
life" concerns bees, which also be
come active, like a young man's
fancy, at the turn of Spring.
O. S. Bare, associate professor
of entomology, said that the honey
production in Nebraska runs on an
average of 100-150 carloads. Bare
explained that some beekeepers
keep 1000 to 30000 hives of bees
per year. He pointed out that an
other service of bees was the pol
lination of plants that they do
in the summer.
Re added that some people rent
out their hives of bees to alfalfa
and sweet clover producers who
wish to have their fields complete
ly pollinated. These little bees
trnasfer the pollen from one plant
Bare explained that bees travel
in swarms and depend upon the
queen bee to lay the eggs of future
generations. When a new queen bee
is hatched the old queen leaves
with some of the workers to form
a new hive.
In working with bees, Bare ad
vises a person to work slow and
steady. If a person is nervous and
jumpy the bees will become ex
cited. Bare explained he always
has a veil on for protection when
he is working with the bees.
He added the easiest way to get
stung is to slap at the bee as this
aggravates the little creature. If
stung by a bee, Bare advised
scraping out the stinger witih a
finger nail. This stinger also has a
poison sac with it which will break
when the stinger is pulled out. i

THEY'RE CLAMORING FOR THEM! Who? Students. What? Luckies. Coast to
coast, dormitory to dormitory, college smokers prefer Luckies to all other
brands, according to the greatest up-to-datest college survey. Again, the
No. 1 reason for Luckies wide lead: Luckies taste better. They taste better,
first of all, because Lucky Strike means fine tobacco. Then, that tobacco i3
toasted to taste better. "Ifs Toasted" the famous Lucky Strike process
tones up Lackies' mild, good-tasting tobacco to make it taste even better.
So enjoy the better-tasting cigarette . . . Lucky Strike. But don't be like
the man in the Droodle above, titled: Pickpocket acquiring Luckies. Make
sure you have plenty of your own. Buy Luckies by the carton.
Lucky Droodle are pouring in!

w use. and for many we don't nee.
So send every original Droodle in your
