Former NU Worker
Mrs. Lindquist Dies
Mrs. Alfred Lindquist of Ver
mont died last week having just
returned from ; an extendedHoli
day trip to Sweden with her hus
band. Mrs. Lindquist was the former
Elsie Lena Olson, who did active
work with the Lutheran Student
House during ,'the. last war, and
later, similar work at the Univer

tary camps. ' !, 1 '
him with saying that representa
tives of the National Farm Organ
ization were denied the right to
testify Thursday before the Uni
versity Committee on Academic
Privilege and Tenure on the re
moval of Dr. C. Clyde Mitchell.
Finigan said, "We did not tes
tify because Dow (Dr. David Dow,
chairman of the investigating com
mittee) and I had a mutual agree
ment that we had nothing to say
pertinent to the question that was
being considered by the commit
tee." The committee is investigating
charges by Mitchell that he was
removed as chairman of the agri
cultural economics department because-
of outside pressure.
"A statement that 'future action
will probably be taken by the
NFO dependent upon the final out
come of the hearings' is incor
rect," Finigan said. "I don't deter
mine policy for th'e NFO. All policy
is determined by the members."
Finigan' said he regretted the
inference that the story made
that the NFO was denied a chance
In other action or the Mitchell
case, Dow announced that the
next meeting of the committee will
be held in March.
Four witnesses appeared before
the committee Thursday including
Dr. Howard Ottoson, chairman of
the department of agricultural eco
nomics, Dr. Ernest Feder, asso
ciate professor of agricultural
economis; Bruce Bruggman. senior
in Arts and Sciences, who was editor
of the Nebraskan at the time of
Mitchell's removal; and Sam Jen
sen, senior in Arts and Sciences,
who was a member of the Nebras
kan staff in the spring of 1956.
The committee also questioned
Dean W. V. Lambert of the Col-j
lege of Agriculture, who had ap
peared at the committee's earlier
hearing Feb 9. . . .
Dow announced that another
hearing on the case is contem
plated but probably not until the
latter part of March.

Dunninger thrives on skeptics
and maybe that was the reason
I was such a good subject when
I approached him during the in
termission of his show Friday
The week before Dunninger was
due to appear at the Coliseum,
Mr. Shugrue, the illustrious editor
ial page editor for the Rag, thought
up the idea of a member of the
Rag staff challenging Dunninger
to prove his authenticity.
Shugrue told the rest of us about
his idea and we all decided that
what we challenged Dunninger with
should be an article out of a Rag
from long ago.
We looked in past issues, and
found an article - about the num
ber of points a judging team from
the Ag College scored at an Amer
ican National Livestock Show in
Kansas City. The Issue was dated
Oct. 22, 1937.
Full of confidence that we had
something the "Master Mind".
would never figure out, w patted.
each other on the back and waited
in doeful anticipation for Friday
night, at which time we would
stump Mr. Dunninger.

Since nobody, else from the Rag
office would go up to Dunninger
and challenge him with our little
article, I was told to do it. I didn't
want to be made a fool of myself
by the wit Dunninger was throwing
around through the audience, so I
waited until the intermission and
went back stage to present my
challenge to him.
I was very confident that he
would never be able to read my
thoughts to the ' point where he
could give me a four digit num
ber from a 1937 Rag.
The first thing I did was intro
duce myself and tell him all about
the challenge. He smiled and asked
me for a piece of paper and a
pencil. Next he told me to think
about the number.
uunninger looked at my eyes
once and wrote something down
on the paper I had given him
wnen ne nanaea ic to me I was
amazed (and amazed isn't a suit
able word) to find that he had
actually written the exact number
of points from the article.
When Dunninger started the sec
ond part of his show he did extra
sensory perception that far sur
passed the small challenge that
I gave him.
Dunninger pulled such other feats
as having a man get a dollar bilu
out of his billfold and then giving
him the serial number off of it.
