Vol. 56, No. 2 First Scottish Coed: liirsteen Paterson, Minus Brogue, Prefers Tartan Shirt To Bermudas By BEV DEEPE Staff Writer If the bluebells of Scotland are saddened this month, it is prob ably because they are missing their first Scottish lassie to study at the University. Eight years of correspondence has brought Kirsteen Paterson to the Nebraska plains. She was a "pen friend" of Harriet Cook, Uni versity graduate then attending a Grand Island junior high' school. The two girls enjoyed exchanging letters with each other and after their other pen pals were dropped, letters continued to be "posted' be tween Grand Island and Glasgow. Miss Cook was graduated from the University in 1954 and was a member of Alpha Chi Omega end Delta Phi Delta. She was enrolled in the College of Arts and Sci ences. - Three years ago, when Mr. and Mrs. W. G. Clayton of Grand Is land were planning a trip to Eu rope, Miss Cook suggested they visit the Patersons. Upon arrival in Glasgow, the Claytons were given a three day tour of the upper western part of Scotland by Miss Paterson and her parents. Miss Paterson's Wednesday ar rival on campus climaxed the Clay ton's determination to have her visit the Midwest. But at times the prospects seemed discourag ing scholarships were unavail able, war and an unfavorable bal ance of trade made foreign study University Theater: Nebraska Masquers Begin Ticket Sales Tickets for University Theater productions are available this week from members of Nebraska Masquers and University Theater workers. Tickets are $4.50 for students, faculty and University employees and $6 for the general public. The ticket office of the Howell Theater is also telling tickets Monday through Friday from 12:30 to 5 p.m. .. Four plays and an opera are be ing offered this season. The plays and the dates they will be pre sented are "Stalag 17," October 25-29;"Blithe Spirit," December 12 16; "La Boheme," February 14 18; "The Inspector General," March 13-17, and "Mary of Scot-i land," May 8-12. During the ticket sales the cam paign will feature the annual hon orary producers competition. Let ters asking all organized houses to participate have been mailed. Mrs. Delia Kenney, Theater sec retary, said that if any organized house did not receive a letter it was "purely an oversight" and if they want to participate they may call the Theater office. Each house entering the compe tition will select an Honorary Pro ducer candidate. The man and woman from the two houses sell ing the most tickets in proportion to the number of active members will be selected Honorary Produc ers for the 1955 56 Theater season. The Honorary Producers and run-ners-up (two women and two men) Outside World: Peron Seeks Refuge By BARB SHARP Staff Writer Ousted Argentine dictator, Juan Peron. has taken refuge aboard a Paraguayan gunboat near Buenos Aires. The commander of the gun boat assured him protection. , After spending Monday niglH in his presidential palace, Peron and his military aide, Maj. Ignacio Cialceta, boarded the gunboat accom panied by the Paraguayan ambassador to Argentina. The rebel navy, however, had instructions to intercept the gunboat and bring Peron back under arrest to face charges. Gen. Franklin Lucero, former Army Minister for Peron and the man who announced Peron's resignation, was reported by diplomatic sources to have taken refuge in the Uraguayan Embassy in Buenos Aires. Farm Prices To Risa Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Benson, under attack for declining farm prices and income, declared Tuesday that the Administration "will not be stampeded into ill-considered actions," but will continue to improve its farm aid programs. He predicted that "farm prices and farm incomes are going to be higher in the years ahead than they are today." Benson added that he was disturbed by recent increases in the cost of farm machinery. Lodge Organizes Opposition Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., chief U.S. Delegate to the United Nations, lined up opposition to the seating of Communist China as the 10th Gen eral Assembly of the U.N. opened Tuesday. The Communist China issue, which comes up yearly, was expected to be introduced at the beginning of the Assembly. Employing the successful method used last year, Lodge prepared l resolution to table the Red Chma issue for 1955. A clash between the East and the West is expected over a seat on the Security Council. The United States supports the Philippines for the seat, while Russia p backing Communist Poland. The Assembly will begin its policy debates after the election of a president and seven committee chairmen and the adoption of an agenda. Jose Maza of Chile is unopposed for the presidency. 'Military Not Inadequate' Vice-President Richard Nixon, speaking in Omaha, denied accusa tions that U.S. military strength is being reduced to inadequate levels. He declared that the Geneva Conference has not altered the estimate of necessary free world military strength. "We are strong enough to meet and defeat attack by any potential aggressor," Nixon said. He added that the Administration's desire tc balance the budget will never take precedence over the determination to maintain necessary military strength. MISS PATERSON all but impossible, and visa trou bles and misunderstandings be tween consulates developed. Civic 'leaders,' businessmen and service organizations in Grand Is land provided scholarships, board and room funds and even "mad money" (for fun, Miss Paterson explains). Congressman A. L. Mil ler helped straighten out legal difficulties. And in mid-August, Grand Island welcomed Miss Pat erson. . Miss Paterson will be doing post graduate work in English. Born and reared in Glasgow, she was will be presented from the stage at the first performance of "Stalag 17," October 25. Following past procedure, the Honorary Producers will receive the following awards and publicity: a trophy for the winning organi zations to be kept during the 1955 56 school year and the 1956 Rush Week, reserved seals at all opening night of the the ater season for Honorary Producers and their dates and publicity both locally and in all University Theater play pro grams sent to more than 500 um versities and colleges in the nation, according to Dallas Williams, di rector of the University Theater. NU Judging Team Places Second The University swine judging team placed second to Iowa Uni versity in intercollegiate judging at the National Barrow Show held in Austin, Minn.; last week. North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin Universities placed third, fourth end fifth, respec tively. Allen Trenkle, high man on the Nebraska team, placed fourth in individual judging in the competi tion. This was 'the first time in four years a University swine judging team did not come in first In the competition. el N, 1 4-m..in ..m,A MISS COOK graduated from Glasgow Univer sity with an ordinary M.A. degree (comparable to a University B.A. degree). This Scottish University has an enrollment equivalent to that of the University, Miss Pater son explained. Founded in 1451, Glasgow University is composed of older buildings of a mixed 19th century and modern type qf archi tecture. But students whether in Lincoln or Glasgow are very similar, Miss Paterson said, and are always extremely friendly. Hoping to become an English teacher of the elementary or jun ior high school grades, Miss Pater son said she would attend a spe cial Teachers Training College when she returns to Scotland. Edu cation is not a part of the curricu lum at Glasgow University, and the education courses she will be tak- in here are not transferable. Kilts are frequently seen in Scot land and some students wear them to classes. Not nearly all the Scots wear them, however, the owner of a tartan skirt said. Miss Pat erson's full-length skirt of green and blue plaid with narrow bands of yellow and red is of the Mc Laren clan. Patersons are a sept or a subdivision of this clan. The significance of clans and tartans har diminished until today they are only .spoken ;oijuiJsentimeiital terms, Miss Paterson explained. Miss Paterson clarified two other misconceptions other peoples often hold about Scots. They speak the English language and their much- imitated brogue is seldom heard except in the few parts of the country where a heavy accent is used. The term Scottish is used when referring to a native of Scot land and the word Scotch is re served for whisky and tape. Miss Paterson's father is in the wholesale shoe business and is as sociated with the company found ed by his grandfather with a tan ner in the highlands of Scotland in 1869. Nicoll: Chancellor Announces Job Switch Chancellor Clifford Hardin has announced that Bruce Nicoll, ad ministrative assistant for univer sity services, returned to his reg ular staff position as assistant di- ICVbUI Ul MIC jsfr University of ; N e d r a s -ka's public re lations depart ment, Sept. 1. "I deeply aooreciate the assist Jf anceMr. Nicoll has given me during my first year as chan cellor and had NicoU hoped that he would agree to ac cept the assignment In this office on a permanent basis," Hardin said. "It is his wish, however, to terminate his leave of absence from the public relations depart ment and return to his work there, which is principally writ ing." Hardin explained that Nicoll's affiliation with the chancellor's of fice was originally established in 1952, with a provision requested by Nicoll that the assignment be tem porary. Rally Highlights Frosh Barbeque Approximiately 1400 new stu dents attended the annual Corn husker Night held on Ag campus September 13. The evening began with a bar beque sponsored jointly by the Ag Exec Board, Block and Bridle, Agronomy and Home Ec Clubs, and handled by Jim Turner, gen eral chairman. The program was highlighted by a rally under the direction of Norm Creutz, Corn Cobs president. The yell squad, headed by Yell King Gene Christensen, led the freshmen in Nebraska yells. They were accompanied by a pep band. . - , . urn LINCOLN, NEBRASKA New Students Orientated Individually New Student Welk began Sun day, September 11 jwith the regis tration of approximately 1950 new students. This was an increase of two hundred and fifty over the 1954 figures. jj Between 1200 and, 1400 parents of the new students met Chancellor Clifford. Hardin- at the Sunday aft ernoon informal coffee in the Student Union. f Purpose of the New Student Week orientation was to "help every individual new student get the best possible start in college," said Dr. Wesley Poe, director of the Junior Division , and Counseling Service. Pqe, who was also direc tor of New Student Week, said the program enjoyed a! very favorable reception. j Students who went through the week of activities ', can appreciate the individual attention they re ceived, he said. Ground work for the program begins in the spring when high school seniors and pro spective students are invited to take advantage of the vocational testing and counseling services of fered by the University. The pack ets the new students received were being filled in mid-July. A direct result of this planning saved new students from the bat tle fatigue usually suffered by students Waiting to get into the "front lines" near advisors' offices. New students received individual cards giving the exact time of their appointment with faculty ad visors. Ail freshmen and persons with less than 30 hours enter the Junior Division. This lays the foundation for a well-rounded college program and helps in any adjustments that students may find necessary. Officers: NU Council Discussion Opens Year A meeting for. officers of cam pus organizations was held Wed nesday in the Union Ballroom to work out a functional relationship with campus organizations and the University administration. The Stu dent Council sponsored the meet ing, with President Andy Hove in charge. Chancellor Clifford Hardin said one of the problems is to get greater participation in activities since only one-third of the students engage in extracurricular activi ties. Frank Hallgren, associate dean for men, said that they were striv ing for a functional relationship between Panhellenic, Interfraterni ty Council, Student Council and the administration. Changes affect ing the students can be made through these three major organi zations, he added. Separate discussions were con ducted by members of the Council for treasurers, secretaries, scholar ship chairmen, social chairmen, presidents and vice-presidents. Reporters All students interested in being reporters for the Nebraskan should report to the Nebraskan office, Union Room 20, according to Fred Daly, News Editor. No previous journalistic experi ence is necessary. There is plenty of room for new reporters, Daly announced. Reporters may work toward future paying positions on the Nebraskan staff, he added. Wish no v Trip: Old English Musk Masted For Use a ' Student musicians at the Uni versity may be among the first in the United States to play the seldom-heard " stringed music of 17th ' Century England, thanks to the current research of Emanuel Wishnow, conductor of the Univer sity Orchestra. Wishnow searched for this ne glected Elizabethan music last summer in London and Oxford on a travel grant from the Universi ty's Research Council. From hun dreds of old manuscripts, he se lected a number which are being microfilmed and sent to him for further examination and editing, ' ' Ibis clear and unostentatious music is among the finest of the contrapuntal style," Wishnow ex plains. "It is the forerunner of contrapuntal works by composers such as Bach and Handel." "But curiously," he adds, "this music, introduced at the begin ning in the 1600's, ended abruptly in England around 1700 and nei ther the composing or the perform ing of this style continued." He calls this music England's "great est epoch in the field of original IFC Takes Action AM Admoihs T y o By FRED DALY News Editor In a letter to the Interfraternity Council Tuesday, Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity admitted guilt to for mal charges of violating IFC rush ing rules filed September 12 by Zeta Beta Tau fraternity.

Twenty-one men compose the cast of this outstanding hit of the 1951 Broadway season.

Wishnow's interest in this con trapuntal music began about 20 years ago when he played trios of William Byrd, a composer of the period. Today, Wishnow notes, a number of musicians are becom ing interested in reviving the mu sic for contemporary use. From his collection, Wishnow will select manuscripts he feels can be fairly authentically trans cribed for contemporary stringed instruments. The music was actu ally written for stringed instru ments now antiquated. He hopes to have some numbers ready for performance later this school year. Among Wishnow's . interesting manuscripts are several composi tions attributed to England's Hen ry VIII. A sidelight to Wishnow's work in London was a . reqnest for his biography to be used in a record album of Glen Miller's wartime or chestra to be released soon. Wish now played with the famous group during World War II in London, as well as in Paris and on tour in this country. half of Sigma Alpha Mu and the withdrawal of the charges by Zeta Beta .Tau occurred one day before a scheduled IFC hearing of the matter.
