Summary Of Year
Meet Af Oklahoma
Ends Debate Season
University debaters won 67 per
cent of their contests in the last
debate season, according to Donald
0. Olsen, debate coach.
"The outstanding thing about this
debate team is that the members
are active in all phases of Univer
sity life," Olsen said. "Most are
involved in a number of activities
and are also good students."
The Delta Sigma Rho regional
congress at the University of Okla
homa wound up debate for the
' forensic season. The debate team
participated in 233 debates in the
past season.
Nine contests were audience de
bates and 224 were decision de
bates. The team won 149 of the
decision debates and lost 75.
In all events the team ; won 28
superior ratings. University de
baters participated in 11 intercol
legiate debate and discussion con
ferences. Many schools only use their best
debaters,' but the University de
bate team has a policy of giving
as many interested and capable
students a chance to participate
as possible, Olsen said.
"We feel debate is an education
adventure," he said.

The Outside World'
Chou Stymies Talks
Staff Writer
The recent offer of Red China's Chou En-lai to confer with the
United States on easing tension in the Formosa area seems to have
reached a stalemate. The United States is insisting that Nationalist
China would have to be a party to anyasuch negotiations, and Chou
reportedly refuses any negotiations with the Nationalists present.
The offer to" negotiate the Formosan problem came during the
closing session of the Afro-Asian conference in Bandung Indonesia.
The conference ended with the adoption of a communique condemning
colonialism "in all its manifestations," appealing for an end to racial
ism, asking world disarmament and prohibition of atomic and hydrogen
bombs and their tests, and promising closer cultural and economic
Pro-Western powers at the conference won major victories when
the conference approved the formation of defense alliances under the
United Nations charter, and when they won Red China's willingness to
approve such principles as the United Nations definition of human
rights and self-determination.

Merits Bia
The University's enlarged pro
posed budget for 1955-57 is due in
part to a recognition that the Uni
versity is growing with the state,
Chancellor Clifford Hardin said
in a Nebraskan interview.
The budget which the University
has requested is $18,830,000 $3,
830,000 more than the budget for
the .present two year period.
The University budget is taken
from the state's General Fund and
is part of the total appropriation
that the Legislature must make
for every two year period. The
Budget committee conducts hear
ings for other institutions of the
state and then decides the
amount that it will recommend to
the Unicameral later in the year.
Two and one-half million dollars
of the proposed increase would be
used to support the existing pro
gram at the University, and the
remaining $1,300,000 of the pro
posed hike would be used in the
development of new activities.
Displays of corn harvesting, soil
tillage and irrigation will be fea
tured by the department of agri
cultural engineering. Emphasis
will be on advances made in the
field of agriculture by engineering.
Precision measuring, such as de
termining the width of a human
hair, will be included in the de
partment of engineering mechan
ics display.
Various procedures for soften
ing hard water will be demonstrat
ed in the chemical engineering dis
play. Overall chairmen for E. Week

Thirty-six per cent of the pro
posed development fund, Hardin
said, would go to the University
Medical center in Omaha for more
adequate staffing, promotion of
closer relations by the Mtdical
College with Lincoln and (hnaha
hospitals and expansion of tne out
patient department.
The Chancellor told the commit
tee that approximately 1000 addi
tional students might be attending
the University in 1957. Although
no formal study has been undertak
en, he said, a higher percentage
of high school graduates, are going
to college now and fewer students
are dropping out of school.
Merit increases for faculty ac
count for $1,200,000 of the proposed
budget. Hardin said that the pay
increase would not be of the blank
et type and would go to those fac
ulty members who have done and
are doing "meritorious work." The
increase is aimed at retaining key
members of the staff, both aca
demic and non-academic.
