Set For April:
fid Jo Host Conference
College Residence Halls
The annual conference of the
Association of College and Univer
sity Residence Halls, to be held at
the University April 4-6, will be
the fourth of a series which has
helped to shape the present struc
ture and activities of the Residence
Association for Men and Selleck
Quadrangle, according to Bob
Conned, publicity director of
ACURH. He explained that many
of the features of the RAM pro
gram have come from suggestions
and discussions of previous ACURH
conferences. The purpose of each
conference is to provide an ex
change of ideas for the improve
, xnent of the programs of the stu
dent government organizations in
the residence halls of member
schools, he said.
Among the oddities accomp
storm was the suspension of the
lisbed by Monday's record spring
University's rule forbidding mixed
social functions during the wjek.
Because classes were dismissed,
Dick Cory, social director for the
Reisdence Halls for Men, decided
to hold a double hour dance in
the Ram dining room. A record
three hours after permission was
requested for the dance, Mrs. Fran
ces Vogel, assistant to the Asso
ciate Dean of Women, granted
permission for the dance.
The girls residence houses were
then contacted and at 7:30 p.m.
the dance began. It lasted until
9:30 and was attended by an es
timated 200 persons.
Music was provided by two hi
fi sets donated by Dick Eklund
and Bill Ramsay.
According to Cory, the dance set
new record in short notice ar
rangement and turned into a suc
cessful social function.
To Visit Banks
A group of faculty members
serving as representi'dves from
their respective colleges will visit
two or three Omaha banks today,
according to Dr. F. E. Eldridge,
Associate Director of Resident In
struction. The group will discuss the pos
sibilities of job opportunities in
commercial banking that are open
to persons who have studied in the
Agricultural, Engineering and Arts
and Sciences colleges.
"Banks are also interested in
students who have had training in
fields other than finances," Dr.
An example of the valuable sug
gestions which came from past
conferences is the weekly posting
of the minutes of RAM Council
meetings. This idea was discussed
at the 1955 conference held at the
University of Missouri. In the fall
of that year RAM adopted the
idea and it has been used the past
two years with success, Coruzzi
The planning and operation of
students tribunals in residence
halls has been discussed at several
conferences and is currently being
studied by RAM. Other member
schools of ACURH have various
systems, some of which are more
satisfactory than others.
While the conference is primar
ily held for a comparison of notes
by student government officers,
Coruzzi added, it has proved useful
to the administrators and advisors
who accompany the student offi
cers. Directors and managers get
together and talk over the common
problems and solutions that they
meet in operating residence halls
food service systems, building
maintenance, personnel selection,
equipment purchasing and other
problems of housing and feeding
Administrators from the member
schools find that they can profit
from each other's mistakes and
successes just as do the student
government officers who compare
notes on social programs, scholas
tic aids to members of student
government organizations, student
clubs and othei activities as well
as intramural athletic systems,
He explained that there are now
11 Midwest colleges and univer
sities which are members of
ACURH and that 8 other colleges
are being invited by the Steering
Committee headed by Bill Hough
ton, vice-president of ACURH. In
all about 130-150 delegates are
expected for the three-day meet
ing. They will be housed in the
Women's Residence Halls and in
Selleck Quadrangle, Coruzzi said.

arship in the value of $1,750 for

"The search for the origins of
corn is widely disputed," said Cal.
vin McMillan, Associate Professor
of Botany in an interview with
the Daily Nebraskan Tuesday.
"Certain workers maintain that
corn crossed the Pacific, possibly
more than once," he continued,
"and was well established in Asia
long before 1492. Which way the
initial crossing was made is open
"One worker sees a close rela
tionship to corn with sorghum, an
old world plant."
"Others see a relationship with
'tripsacum' (a native grass of
North America, Nebraska in
cluded). "Still others visualize an origin
from the pod corn of South Ameri
ca." Speaking of corn breeding among
South American and North Ameri
can Indians, he said, "There is no
avoiding the conclusion that the
Indian was a good corn breeder."
There is a display of the types
of corn grown in South America
in,Bessey Hall. The species con
tained in the display were obtained
from the Rockefeller Foundation,
which has an experimental station
located in Columbia, South Ameri
ca. "There is little evidence," Mc
Millan said, "that the Indian had
any knowledge of even the most
elementary principles of heredity.
Even the simplest of relationships
between the seed and the plant
which grew from it were ordinar
ily only vaguely understood."
"The Hopi of Arizona still say
that the seed which is planted in
the ground is an indication to the
Corn God of the kind of corn they
wish him to grow."
