Dean Green graduated from the University in 1914 with a B.S. in Ci vil Engineering. He got his Ms. in C. E. at Columbia University and then taught at Texas A. & M. for four years, where he attained the rank of professor. In 1920, Dean Green came back to Nebraska and founded Western Laboratories, a consulting engi neering firm, of which he was pres ident and manager until 1943. During this time, his influence spread throughout the state He had a part in the design and plan ning of most of the major highway and airport construction done in these years. During the war years, he worked closely with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mis souri River Division. Mr. Green was a strong promoter of the State Licensing Law, which passed in 1937. This law provides for a State Board of Examiners for Engineers and Architects, whereby engineers obtain their professional license. Dean Green has served as secretary or chairman of the board ever since. In 1943, Mr. Green became a teacher again. He taught civil en gineering courses at the Univer sity until 1945.

Many problems arose, but under the Dean's capable leadership, they were solved and a record num ber of engineers were graduated with no decline in the quality of their instruction. . Dean Green has always had a great personal interest in this stu dents and has given much of his Courtesy Lincoln Journal Dean Roy Green own time to counseling and helping young engineers. This was espe cially evident at the outbreak of the Korean conflict, when student attitude became very poor because of the knowledge that they might be called to fight at any time Dean Green spent many evenings counseling and combatting this inititative-dulling attitude. Physical additions to the college in the last few years include Fer guson Hall and the renovation of several other buildings.' The Pean's influence is felt dur ing college life and also after grad uation. He has served on the En gineering Council for Professional Development Accreditment Com mittee and the Committee on Stu dent Selection. He is active in the American Society of Engineering Education. All graduate engineers who work in Nebraska meet him again when they face the State Board of Exam iners. Practicing engineers are also interested in the large number of professional papers which Mr. Green has written. E-Week is the primary activity of the Egineering College during the year. It is designed to show the public the applications - and influences of engineering in every day life and to give students a chance to apply what they learn in the classroom, the main attrac tion is "Open House," featuring displays made by the students. This year, the displays and cel ebrations have a new purpose. They will emphatically express the appreciation of the College of En gineering and Architecutre students for the work, interest, and leader ship so unselfishly given to them by their Dean Roy Green.

Airman 1st class Leslie Mil- bourne, another member of the four man team, explained the sig nificance of the belts. There are about four colors of belts, he said. The first is a be. ginners belt, the second is the white belt. Two members of the Lincoln team hold the brown belt. The other two members wear the black belt, which indicates, 'they are considerably above av erage, mere are ten aegrees oi black belt.

A special board passes on the degree of skill of members, Mil bourne explained. In order to win the belt, a candidate must know a great deal about anatomy, as well as the actual holds, for they must explain to the board which muscles are involved in which holds, he said. In some of their demonstrations, the team uses a ten-year-old boy and an eight-year-old girl to show how persons of this size can throw full-grown men. Legend has it that the art of judo was first discovered by a Chinese philosopher. In looking out of his window one winter he observed that the branches of the oak and elm trees were often broken by the weight of the snow, for . the sturdy branches attempted to resist the weight. T' elini willow trees, whose bra tthes gave with the snow and forced it to slip off, never broke, however. The system, then, as worked out by the philosopher king, is based on the principle of turning one's opponent's strength against him.

The prizes include: a Michael Stern suit, valued at $C7.50; Rob- lee shoes, valued at $15.95; a Stet son hat, valued at $10.95; a Van Heusen shirt, valued at $5.00; a Wembley tie, valued at $2.00; hose, valued at $1.00; two belts, valued at $2.50 each.

IFC publicity chairman, Spring Day publicity chairman, Kosmet Klub worker, member of Sigma Chi and a soph omore in Arts and Sciences, states that he is in favor of a combina tion income and sales tax to re place the existing property tax. Ireland added that Nebraska's present tax system is outdated for many ways and should be revised to insure a more equitable distribu tion. 'I am suDoortine an increase in the University of Nebraska budget to the degree of 3.2 million dol lars," he said. "I think some com promise is in order between the Nebraska taxpayers and the Uni versity and feel that the 3.Z ligure is a fair one." "Some program must be initiated on the University campus, where by effective student criticism of teaching personnel is inagurated,' Ireland added. Sara Jones Sara Jones, news editor of the Daily Nebraskan, member of the debate team, YWCA, NUCWA, member of Alpha Xi Delta and a sophomore in Arts and Sciences, stated she advocates a realistic ap proach to the problem of the budg et, which is not a separate issue but part of the general problem of the Nebraska tax system. . The tax base in the state is too narrow to provide adequate reve nue for all state activities and the University must suffer with the rest of the state. Before the University can be provided with sufficient revenue, the tax base must be broadened, Miss Jones added. Courtetr Llncols Star The other members, all gradu ate students, are Fuchard Aliie, Ronald Bambury, Raymond Barkley, Vernon Bell, Ralph Benck; Waldeen Buss, Jerald Dirks, Mack Hunt, Jack Koenig, Gordon Luikart, Darrel Schin dier, and Carl Tipton.

Wayne Hennessey, District 40, is submitting Minimum Stanfards of Schools; Clarence Castner, Dis trict 9, is introducing Legalizing Bingo, and Derena Turner, District 27, is introducing Limitation of Water for Irrigation Purposes. Tell Views "I oppose the measures to allow 18-year-olds to vote. Most 18-year-olds are no more qualified to vote than the majority of their elders; the quality of the electorate will not be improved by the addition of more poorly qualified members. Voting is not a return for services rendered, nor a right which can be demanded. It is a privilege which must be earned," she stated. Miss Jones also commented on the parking problem of the Uni versity. She said it is a job for the students to solve, not the Uni versity. The job of the University is to educate its students and its obligation does not extend to park ing lots. The University's job is education and its function is to transcend the values of society. Administra tion, faculty and students should recognize it, for the University has been sadly failing in its duties, she said. When the administration becomes more concerned with the morals of the students than their education, when the students . become more concerned with the IFC officers than the imaginative consideration of learning then a University is no longer worthy of the name, Miss Jones added. George Moyer George Moyer, copy editor fo the Daily Nebraskan, member of the debate team, NUCWA, YMCA, member of Kappa Sigma and a sophomore in Arts and Sciences stated that he does not favor a sales tax. The present tax system of the state of Nebraska is neither fair or equitable system and the tax base of the state should be broad ened by the institution of a state income tax, he added. "On the parking problem of the University, I don't believe cars are required for freshman and sopho more students," Moyer said. "The state of Nebraska is cur rently suffering drought conditions and although I believe the Univer sity need.s an increase of funds, I believe they should also look into this problem realistically in the view of the problems outstate," he commented. Moyer said he believes his ex perience in the past two years on the University debate team has qualified him for the job of lieu tenant governor. Ht also added that if he is elected, "I won't can the governor every morning to see if he had died." Bob Swansoa Bob Swanson, president of Sel leck house. RAM council and senior in Buisness Adminstration said: That as lieutenant he will try to effect cooper ation and good feeling among the factions represerted. Swanson believes that the lieu tenant governor should not allow personal convictions and opinions to enter into his leadership of the legislature. "Drawing on my past experi ences, I believe that I can pre side over the body, giving each individual an equal opportunity to be beard."
