Mock Legislature:
Twelve Named:
f n F V (AX V A AX IV'
The Nebraska University Com
mittee on World Affairs is planning
to hold a mock session of he Uni
cameral legislature as their an
nual all-campus project. It was an
nounced Tuesday by "Biff" Keyes
vice-president in cnarge 01 pro
It is hoped that the sessions can
be held in the legislative chambers
at the State Capitol. There will be
three sessions on the week of
March 29 with a fourth session to
be held if business cannot be com
pleted in the first three.
A governor, lieutenant governor,
and secretary of state will be
chosen in an election of the student
body. There will be 43 state sena
tors chosen by campus organiza
tions. Campus organizations can
apply for a district which if award
ed by the NUCWA cabinet would
allow that organization to select a
senator, Keyes said. Any campus
organization can apply for a dis
trict. Applications can be given to
either Betty Parks at the Kappa
Delta sorority house or Steve Ev
erett at the Kappa Sigma frater
nity, according to Keyes.
Each organization receiving t
district would be able to send lob
byists to the legislature to lobby
for legislation which any senator
could introduce. There are no re
strictions on the number of lobby
ists a district could send to the
legislature, Keyes continued.
A mass meeting of all those inter
ested in presenting candidates for
any of the elective offices or apply
ing for districts will be held next
week. Keyes said. A time and
place for the meeting will be an
nounced shortly.
"We hope that we will all come
to a better understanding of our
state government and the prob
lems it faces through actually trac
ing its processes through this mock
session of the Unicameral," Keyes
Last year, the NUCWA project
was a mock political convention,
The convention was organized on
non-partisan lines, but split into
two factions before a candidate
could be nominated. The Democrat
ic faction then elected Estes Ke-
fauver as their candidate for the
presidency while the Republican
side of the convention nominated
President Eisenhower.
"Last year's project created a
great deal of interest on the cam
pus and it is hoped that with such
controversial issues as the tuition
bill, water rights legislation, low
ering the voting age to eighteen,
school redisricting and others
that students will again provide us
with the fine support of last year,"
Steve Everett, NUCWA publicity
chairman said.

Letter Of Thanks
(Eds. Note:) The following is a letter sent to the Daily Nebraskan
by the five Hungarian students now attending the University. The
letter was written in Hungarian by the students and translated into
English by Dr. L. John Martin, Assistant Professor of Journalism.
To the Editor:
We would like to thank the American people and their govern
ment through the columns of your paper for admitting us into their
country and giving us a home in this wonderful land.
During the past twelve years, as the hatred for Soviet Com
munism grew in the hearts of the Hungarian people, their sympathies
turned toward the United States. We were drawn toward the United
States all the more, because we knew that our deliverance from the
Soviet terror and our liberation from slavery was possible only with,
American help.
We began to experience the interest and help of the American
people almost immediately after we had found refuge in Austria.
And this feeling of interest in our lot and welfare continued to de
velop. One of the results of this concern on the part of Americans
was that we were given scholarships at the University of Nebraska. .
Our happiness at being given the opportunity to study at this
beautiful university is hard to express. We are grateful for the
warmth with which we were received. We are all the happier be
cause we feel that the honor done us was really ment for the
freedom-loving Hungarian people as a whole.
Our thanks are due to those who have worked so tirelessly
toward the establishment of our scholarships. We appreciate espe
cially the many hours of work and the unselfish effort with which
the members of the Hungarian Student Project made our coming
possible and made us feel so very much at home. We also wish
to thank the Lincoln business men who have given so generously
to make the project a success.
Finally, we want to say thank you to our professors, our house
mates, our fellow foreign students, and to the many other students
both known and unknown who have directed us around and shown
us" their friendship in helping us get settled in our new home.

The production of "The Dead
Day" by the University Theater,
scheduled for April 26 and 27,
marks the first time that the
play has been produced in the
United States. The play was writ
ten by the German artist and
writer, Earnest Barlac, and has
only recently been translated into
English by' Dr. Naomi Jackson,
an American student of Barlac.
The play concerns the struggle
of a son to escape the apron
strings of his domineering mother.
The boy wants to. go out into the
world and become acquainted
with his fellow man. The under
lying principle of the play is
man's attempt to discover and
know bis God.
The play has only six characters.
One character is a voice which is
heard on stage but never seen.
Another character is on stage
nearly all the time but never
speaks. The emotions of the char
acter are expressed through ges
tures and expressions.
Since Barlac, the author, was
also a well-known artist, the Art
Department has agreed to work in
conjunction with the technical
crew in designing sets for. the
play. Among Barlac's art work
are 24 lithograph drawings of the
stage settings as be wanted them
constructed. Sets will be con
structed from these drawings. Dr.
Dallas Williams is the Technical
Barlac has gainted greater fame
in America as an artist than as
writer. Barlac, who died in 1947,
was isolated from society by the
Nazi "government of Germany
which came into power in the
early 1930's. This government de
clared Barlac to be a degenerate
artist and destroyed the sculptur
ing he had done for the World
War I Memorials in Germany.
