It Happened At NU
While a professor was lecturing to his science
class, he happened to turn on the water in the
small basin. Due to some defect, the water kept
on pouring. In an attempt to beat the faucet by
force, the professor wrenched off the handle.
Undaunted the professor continued the lecture
and the bell rang before the water ceased.

bring to the Faculty Senate com
mittee on final exams a request
to reconsider and investigate the
final exam period."
An amendment to precede the
passed resolution to state, "'Be
cause the Student Council favors a
two week examination peroid..."
was introduced by Gail Katskee
and tabled for one week.
In proposing the resolution,
Brugmann said that the exam
question was not discussed prop
erly by the Faculty Senate. Mar
vin Breslow, representative from
CCRC, said that the students
should have reasons from the fac
ulty for their objectives.
Before the resolution was intro-.
duced, Breslow made a report as
chairman of the Council calendar
committee that the committee
would meet with the faculty com
mittee Thursday on the question
of the final exam period.
After Breslow's report, John Fa
gan, representative from Engi
neering College, moved that the
council endorse a continuation of
the policy of two week exams. Fa
gan's motion was withdrawn when
the resolution introduced by Brug
mann was passed.
The main purpose behind the
resolution is that the faculty sen
ate will justify and explain to the
students why the change was
Sharon Mangold, chairman of
the publications board committee,
announced that openings were still
available for interested sophomores
to apply for the sophomore posi

President Andy Hove announced
that student representation on fac
ulty committees is arranged on a
three-year basis and must be re
newed each year. A committee of
Breslow and Brugmann was ap
pointed to see if this may be ar
ranged on a definite basis.
The following chart lists the amount of oral contributions on the floor of Wednesday's
Council meeting from each member of the 1955-56 Council.
Debate has been divided into the four topics discussed for ease of tabulation. These
categories include committee reports, discussion on the length of the exam week, dis
cussion on the migration, discussion on the Council's Round Table with the Chancellor
and, finally, a total amount comments for each member.
Absent members and those who left prior to adjournment have been indicated on
the chart. Skip Hove, Council president", presided during the meeting. Comments indi
cated on the chart with an 'x" were special questions to the president.
Record of the discussion was made, in triplicate, during the course of the meeting.
In cases of differences in the tabulations, the average of the three has been used.

World Develops Into Tvjq
Superstates: Russia, US.
"Despite the beliefs of many
people, nuclear weapons will not
make wars obsolete," Hanson
Ba'dwin, military editor of the
New York Times, said Wednes
day. Baldwin spoke before nearly
2000 University students at the
first All University Convocation of
"However nuclear weapons may
limit, but will not stop wars," he
said Puppet wars and fringe wars
as well as atomic wars are a
danger to national security, he add
ed. He estimated that the United
States has a stockpile of 10,000
atomic bombs to about 1000 for
Russia and that this country has
made 65 atomic tests to Russia's
However, he said we must con
tinue to build atomic weapons at
an accelerated pace. "If we re
la::, Russia will grow stronger
He mentioned three main rea
sons for the "sweetness and light"
attitude of the Russians. "Russian
leaders are still struggling for the
top spot in the government."
Secondly, he said, Russia is un
dergoing an economic strain. They
are trying to provide both guns
and butter, he said.
This change of Russian policy,
but not of ultimate ends, is, third
ly, bringing results for them on
the world scene. France plans to
reduce its military forces now and
Adenauer's long-term polition has
been weakened by the agreement
between Russia and the West Ger
man government, he said.
According to Baldwin, the world
around us has become two worlds
since World War 11. Two super
states, meaning Russia and the
United States, have grown so much
more powerful than other nations,
This has resulted in conflict ex
pressed as the "cold war" or at
times as actual fighting.
These two worlds are now be
ing separated by "gray areas"
which are independent of the two
major powers and their allies. He
classed India, Burma and Indo
nesia in this group with the pos
sible inclusion of Germany and Ja
pan in the future.
Baldwin emphasized the impor
tance of the consequences and ef
fects of the small-scale wars. Be
cause of the stalemate in the Ko
rean War, Red China could term
the United States a "paper tiger."
"They have exploited the term so
that other Asiatic nations began
doubting the strength of the Unit

Douglas Offers Plan
By BARB SHARPE
A program to raise lagging farm income was advanced Thursday
by Sen. Douglas (D-IU) in a speech to be delivered to the National
In addition to a subsidy plan, Douglas urged that ways be found
to build up consumption of food at home and abroad and to send
wheat, cotton and dairy products to countries where there is starva
tion. He proposed that countries receiving these products would ex
change quantities of tin, copper, uranium, cobalt and other minerals.
The Senator said he feels efforts should be made toward aiding
small and low income farmers, but added that he did not know what
such a plan might cost. He attacked GOP farm policies and declared
that the Republicans "broke" 1952 promises to farmers.
Chou: Prisoners 'Free To Leave'
Communist China Premier Chou En-lai was reported to have told
British officials that all Americans now being held in China have been
notified that they have a right to leave.
An earlier Peiping radio broadcast had said that 47 Americans
were free to leave but 19 had criminal charges against them. Ameri
can officials predicted that the Reds may still try to use the 19 Ameri
cans as pawns in the repatriation talks at Geneva. However, the fact
that these 19 have serious charges against them was not being re
garded as too great an obstacle in the way of their release. Most of
the American citizens and airmen recently released by Peiping had
been jailed on long prison terms.
Power Deals Draw House Probe
White House conferences concerning disputed government efforts
to sell federal hydroelectric power to a private utility in Georgia for
resale to cooperatives are being probed by a House Government
Possible obstacles in the investigations appeared when Fred Aan-
dahl, Asst. Secretary of the Interior, told of a presidential order stat
ing inter-departmental executive discussions may be withheld from
Aandahl indicated that the conferences were held before the preo-
aration of a ruling by Atty Gen. Herbert Brownell, on the power
question last summer.
