Tho Outside Wofld:
Polish Defiance Centimes
Communist Poland's defiance of Moscow by (declaring independence
from the Moscow controlled organization has brought about four major
developments within the past 24 hours:
1. Iwo or three Soviet cruisers.have appeared off the Polish seaport
of Danzig reportedly on maneuvers.
2. The Russian army officer in command of the Warsaw district,
Gen. Franciszek Andriejewski, has disappeared from his post at night',
apparently going to the Soviet Union. '
3. A movement has started inside the Kremlin to remove Nikita
Krushchey from his top post in the Soviet party because of his person
ality and the rough way he carried out overall policies.
4. Communist Poland's apparently successful defiance of Moscow
has heartened U.S. officials, but nevertheless the official Red party
in Poland reaffirmed their firm ties with the Soviet Union. They also
said it would be naive to consider the new freedom would swing their
policies to the West. They warned West German Konrad Adenauer
not to meddle in the. development of their freedom and told President
Eisenhower their change did not give the U.S. the right to interfere
with Poland's internal affairs.

Virtue Of Sharing
University students will again be confronted with
the decision whether or not to give to the All Uni
versity Fund Drive this week.
Students will be asked to give money dollars
and cents. There are no special gimmicks. No popu
larity contests. We are being asked to give in the
spirit of charity.
On many campuses, student organizations raise
relatively small amounts through special promotions
much the same as the people of Ogden Nash's poem
who . . have heard of unemployment and they've
heard of breadlines, and they philantropically cure
them all by getting up a costume charity ball."
When we" give to AUF we are giving to Cancer
and Heart, we give to the uneducable children of
LARC School and the diseased student of Asia, we
are giving to people we may never see, but nevertheless
it is a personal gift, for we give of ourselves.
There is a certain acknowledged virtue in giving
when it is realized that what we are indeed doing is
sharing and few persons have as much to share as
do students "at the University of Nebraska. .
Hardin Reports Increased
Revised enrollment figures at
the University show a total of 8,-
425 students, an increase of 569
students over the same period last
year, Chancellor Clifford Hardin
More than half of the increase,
357, was accounted for by the Col
lege of Engineering and Architec
ture, reporting a total of 1,749
students. This makes the Engineer
ing College the largest college in
terms of enrollment.
Two colleges showed decreases,
College of' Agriculture, down 28,
but still up 56 students over two
years ago; and College of Medi
cine, down 47.
Dean J. Perry Tollman saia tne
Medical College decrease was the
result "61 ''two factors :" the effect
of the recent change-over from a
three-to four-year program at the
School of Nursing; and the more
than-usual drop-outs in the fresh
man medical class.
He explained that each year
about six or seven per cent of the
freshman medics leave the school
because of health, financial, aca
demic, or interest reasons. This
past year more than 12 per cent
were lost, he said.

In New Play
Unusual difficulties are antici

Theater play "The Dark of the
Moon," according to Dallas Wil
Tryouts for the play are sched

3 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 10 p.m. and
Thursday evening from 7 to 10 p.m.
in Howell Theater
The play is set in the hills of
Tennessee and is based on the
legend of Barbara Allen, Williams
explained. "It will involve singing,
dancing and the playing of certain
instruments", he stated. "This cre
ates great difficulty in casting,
as it is necessary to find people
not only capable of acting well,
but also of playing the guitar and
the accordion, singing and danc

out for the play who have any of
the above talents may contact Wil

the scheduled try outs, he said.
