It Happened At NU
In Psych class one day, an unwary freshman
was searching under his seat for cigar butts,
after the manner of freshman students.
Suddenly his hand felt a strange feeling object.
His heart raced as he noticed the nifty coed la
the next seat.
Shyly he looked down to confirm his wildest
dream. He was right; it was a fresh cigar butt.
Weather 'r Not
Weathermen predicted that there definately
would be weather Tuesday. Weather is expected
to continue with no appreciable change at least
through 2000 A.D. Temperatures are expected.

Possible Chancellor
An unidentified man, left, re
ported the new University chan
cellor, is shown shaking hands
with Regent C. Y. Thompson of
North Platte, back to camera.
Thompson refused to reveal the
ers, because Uncle Fess is here to
tell you one of his ever-popular
Tales of the Old West.
This, chillun, is the fantastic tale

Grace Bridey, girl PT boat.
When I was the only son of a
caribou struck-farmer trying to
beat the parity in Sleepfield, Ne
braska, my Daddy took me by
the scruff of the neck and said,
"son, you have one of the most
scruffy necks I've ever seen."
Well, now I realized that some
thing had come between Daddy
and I, and I looked up at him with
my soft, soulful brown eyes (brown
er than the Bourbon still trickling
down my old daddy's chin) and I
said, wistfully, "To hell with you,
old man, I'm going to college so
I can quote Areopagitica and get
me a real life doll that I can call
my own.'.
"Ingrateful son!" he screamed,
turning redder than the eyeballs
of an Innocents candidate the
morning of Ivy Day, "didn't I buy
you everything you wanted'? Didn't
I buy you salamanders and frogs
and lop-eared hounddogs? What
about that nice Gila Monster I
bought you last May to hug and
fondle and call your very own?
What more can a Daddy give his
son? '
"Can't you see? Can't you see?"
I cried, screaming like Marlon
Brando. "It isn't gifts I want! It
isn't wealth I want! Money doesn't
buy happiness! What I want is
something better than rotgut bour
bon for breakfast. I want some
Jack Daniels."
"You'll take your Gila Monster
and be glad you got it," Daddy
said, turning on his heel.
So that is why I left my little
trundle bed to come down to the
big University. Arriving with my
knapsack (the one with the belt
in the back) and my Gila Monster,
I went over to a professor's apart
ment to discuss logical positism.
He advised me to hock my Gila
Monster for a 1929 Whippet with
maroon - and - aquamarine side
walls, so I trudged off to do so.

Kosmet Klub is making a terrible
mistake in blaming the YWCA for
something I did."
She added that a few of her ad
lib remarks "were not quite as
clean as they might have been."
She also felt that some of her re
marks were misconstrued.
Outtes emphasized that the ac
tion was not a result of personal
animosity against Miss Shallow.
"Rather, he said, ""KK has' re
ceived many letters from "outside
pressures" protesting against the
brainwashing of YWCA members
in regard to love and marriage."
In regard to questioning Outtes
amitted that the action would
have resulted without the letters.
"Actually," he stated, "several of
our members disguised themselves
as girls and attended the meeting.
Needless to say, the KK members
were horribly shocked and em

expressed in them by shy and re

think marriage is here to stay,"
she commented, "it is something
no family should be without."

Hardin A. Student
Nebraskan Reporter
Clifford M. Hardin, Chancellor of
the University temporarily on an
outstate speaking trip, may be un
able to retain his position as chan
cellor when he returns to the Uni
versity in June.
The decision was made known at
a meeting of administrative offi
cials held shortly before Easter
vacation. E. Y. Thompson, spokes
man for the Board of Regents,
presided at the meeting.
The action, according to several
members of the administrative
staff who attended the meeting,
was described as "irrevocable and
final." The action did not origin
nate from the administrative per
sonnel, the staff officials empha
sized. According to Thompson, "Har
din is still chancellor; no recom
mendations have been made for
a new one." Thompson also said
that he had talked with no one in
dividually concerning the avail
ability of the position and added
that there has been no corres
pondence with Hardin concerning
the matter.
Clarence Swanson, Regent from
Lincoln, said that Hardin would

AUF Aids
With Fund
A relief fund to aid the Univer
sity's reportedly demoted Chan
cellor, has been instituted by All
University Fraud, according to
Jeanne D'Arc, president.
"AUF has not authority to in
stigate petitions to the Board of
Regents or to take any political
action in the highly controversial
demotion she said.
AUF will, however, donate all
of its five per cent emergency
fund to Hardin to "make the pres
ent situation more durable for
this much -wronged man, Miss
D'Arc said.
The board voted unanimously to
utilize all funds not previously ap
portioned to other charities for
the Hardin Fund, she said.
Student contributions will be ac
cepted in booths in the city and
ag Unions and at collection boxes
in organized houses, Miss D'Arc
Miss D'Arc said that the AUF
Board was extremely optimistic
that the fund will soon reach its
expected total of $.87.
Miss D'Arc also said that the
board was thinking of contacting
"other local fund raising organiza
tions" to assi4 in the fund raising

"No recommendations," he told
The Nebraskan in a specially ar
ranged interview," have been
made by the chairman or any
member of the Board of Regents
for any change in the chancellor
ship." John Selleck, University comp
troller and executive secretary of
the Board, said that, to his know
lege, the Regents had not dis
cussed any change in the chancel
lorship since he (Selleck) had as
sumed his present position (last
July 1). He said that he has at
tended all Board of Regents meet
ings since then.
At the Regents' Roundtable last
week, a faculty - Regent discus
sion group, several memoers 01
the Board were quoted as saying
that the Chancellor was still chan
cellor of the University and that
"they had not been informed that
a change was being considered."
Persons in attendance at the
special meeting with Thompson
said that the reason brought out
for Hardin's demotion was the in
fluence of "outside pressures."
These "outside pressures" were
not clearly defined in the meeting.
Regent J. LeRoy Welsh of Oma
ha, questioned on this point in
a telephone interview, said def
initely that "no outside pressures
had been nor would be exerted on
Chancellor Hardin."
"I have always been of the opin
ion that an administrative official
and a University professor should
have the right to pursue their pol
icies without outside interference,"
Welsh continued.
Staff members of the adminis
tration have stated that persor.s

Aid To Science:
Liquor Said Quicker,
In All Campus Coke
Liquor by the drink will replace
Coca-Cola and coffee in all University-operated
vending ma
chines, the Administration an
nounced Monday. j
The changeover to liquor will
be made in the vending machines
by the end of the week, Adam
Breckenridge, Dean of Faculties
The reason for the change, ac- j
cording to sources close to the Ad
ministration, was to bring in more
revenue from the machines. In
stead of coffee or coke for a dime
or a nickle, shots of bourbon or
scotch will be available for 25
cents, and Moscow mules for 35
The low prices are made possi
ble, Breckenridge said, because of
a contract for the liquor from sen
ior students in organic chemistry.
"By acquiring our liquor from
University students," he said, "we
are keeping this enterprise within
the University community. In this
way we can further research in
our science departments, and en
courage students to work out the
production and of modern indus
The selling of liquor by the drink
is a new experience for the Uni
versity, Breckenridge added. "I
think it will help cement student
faculty relations," he said. "In
stead of pot-luck with the profs,
we can have 'Get Potted With the
Profs. "
Louisa May Alcott, Mortar Board
president, said she believed that
liquor by the drink should not be
restricted to a few classroom build
ings, but should be included in res
idence halls as well.

The annual Junior Jitters Party

University chancellor during the
past year.
At the meeting previously men

One individual from Michigan

the campus in regard to the avail

professor from Iowa State College
has also been contacted, it has

University officials in attend

returning to the University as a
full professor of agricultural eco

of this new, expanded program,"
she said, "to include all facets of
student life."
Frank Hallgren, Dean of Men,

there will now be no problems in
