completed, Smith said. Faculty
members were contacted in the
spring, he said.
AUF discontinued solicitation in
booths during New Student Week
this year, because of the danger of
approaching students twice, Smith
said. The booths were made strict

The drive will include solicita

AUF will be divided among the
World University Service, Ameri

"AUF is achieving a balance in
local, national and international
charities in supporting these five
aervices," Smith said.
He explained that the WUS will
receive 25 per cent of the money
collected; Cancer Heart and the
Community Chest will each receive
20 per cent. LARC School (Lan

Children) in Lincoln will benefit by
10 per cent. The remaining five
per cent of the funds will go into
the AUF expense and emergency
This will be the first year that
AUF has supported LARC School.
"Mentally retarded children can
not be cured," Smith said, "but
they can be taught to have as
normal a life as possible. LARC
School teaches the essential things
of life, such as tying shoes and
feeding themselves, to the chil

Although reports issued on President Eisenhower's condition Sun
day described him as suffering from fatigue, bulletins issued Monday
reported that he felt "rested and refreshed."
Attending doctors were alert for changes in the President's con
dition, but a mid-morning report relieved the fears in the White
House staff that Ike may have taken a bad turn during the night.
The White House reported: "When he awoke this morning, the
President felt rested and refreshed. His morning examination showed
no changes to indicate complications and his condition remains satis
factory." White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty explained that
physicians told him "that tiredness is not unusual in these cases."
Mrs. Eisenhower stated that she will "sharply curtail" her visits
to Ike until his condition is improved. She intends to remain at Fitz
simons Army Hospital throughout the month-long period that Ike is
expected to remain there. "
Red Chinese Alter Promise
Communist China intimated Monday that if the United States
wishes to get back all of the American civilians still held by the
Peiping government, the United States must agree to Red demands
to expand the negotiations at Geneva
The Communist Chinese government had promised to release 41
civilians but so far only 15 have crossed the border. There has been
no word on the other 26 Americans.
The Peiping radio announced, "China has adhered consistently to
a policy of leniency toward these Americans. It is only in the cir
cumstances of the improvement of relations between China and the
United States that this policy can be made more lenient."
The radio then broadcast a warning, "If the United States per
sists in stalling in the constructive advance of the talks on the pre
text that the agreement has not yet been carried out, this will not only
turn the talks into a dreary negative performance but also be of no
help to carrying out the agreement."
The broadcast attack the American refusal to discuss the ad
mission of Red China to- the United Nations.
AEC Announces Project
A five-front project to harness hydrogen energy was announced
by Chairman Lewis L. Strauss of the Atomic Energy Commission.
The project could possibly supply mankind with inexhaustible
power reserves lasting forever. Strauss added that he would not be
surprised if science achieved a hydrogv. or fusion, breakthrough
within 20 years. 1
Strauss emphasized that this propose "nject was a long-term
program and would not interfere with the pivsent atomic power pro
gram. Powers Refuse Recognition
France, the United States and Great Britain formally notified
Russia that they will refuse to recognize Communist East Germany.
This was , the first formal answer to the Russian-West German
agreement to establish diplomatic relations. The note, sent to the
Soviet Foreign Ministry, was reported to have emphasized that the
Western Big Three will not recognize any German government except
that in Bonn; that Germany's frontiers will not be definitely estab
lished until a peace treaty is signed with all Germany; and that the
Soviet Union should reassure the West that it will respect the four
power agreement for free communications between East and West

students expressed their preference

'Better Than Expected':
Response from all types of stu
dents to Sunday opening of Love
library has been better than ex
pected, Bernard Kreissman, direc
tor of publicity for all library serv
ices, said Monday.
"We feel, however, it would be
unwise to go out on a limb on the
basis of two Sundays," Kreissman
added. "The library will run a
close count of Sunday use all year.
We want to be able to make quali
tative as well as quantitative con
clusions." The figures used for comparison
so far have been on Saturdays this
year and last year.
Last Sunday, 405 students were
counted at the control desk, . the
desk at the head of the stairs to
second floor. The heaviest use
was during the afternoon, 2 p.m.
to 5 p.m., when 287 students pas
sed the desk. From 6 p.m. to 9
p.m., 118 were counted.
Between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., the
first floor study lounge held 39 per
sons; this is approximately one
fourth of the lounge's capacity.
The heaviest use of the reading
rooms was in the Education room,
which had as many as 44 students
in the afternoon.
At the reserve desk 90 books
were checked out from 2 p.m. to
5 p.m. A heavy day's use at the
reserve desk is 50 books an hour
compared to Sunday's 50 an hour.
Last Saturday 130 books were
checked out all day; on Sunday
the total was 156. A year ago, on

Social Studies librarian, Mary
Doak, said many students were
using History fl readings. History
9 is primarily an introductory
course in American history. Ed
ward Wiseblood, a librarian in the
science reading room, 6aid, "The
students here were very quiet
there wasn't a sound all day. There
was no laughing and talking."
"They didn't seem to be here to ar
range dates," Kreissman said.
Most frequent questions asked
on second floor, in the humanities
and science rooms, were on how
to write short papers. "There were
many direction questions during
the day, and queries pertaining to
location of materials and use of
periodicals and documents," Rich
ard Farley, assistant director of
libraries for science, said.
Most of the librarians and as
sistants felt that use of the library
on Sundays would increase through
the year. More students use the
library as exams approaching and
term papers are due, -they .said.
Attendance is generally low during
the first few weeks of school.
A compilation of attendance sta
tistics prepared by Farley quoted
an unnamed staff member es say
ing, "Only serious students me

Kreissman, who is also assistant
director of libraries for humanities,
stated that last Sunday's attend
ance "represented a good cror.s-
