Corn Cobs
Offer $100
Corn Cobs, mens' pep organiza
tion, has established and is now
offering three $100 grant-in-aid
awards, available for use during
the next school year 1957-1958,ac-cording
to John Nelson, president
The awards are available to reg
ularly enrolled junior or "senior
male students of the University
who have a minimum 5.5 cumula
tive average.
Recipients should le able to
show some financial need and must
be actively participating in at least
two of the following extra-curricular
activities: Corn Cobs, Kosmet
Klub, Student Council, Daily Ne
braskan, Comhusker, Yell Squad,
Builders, Student Union, AUF, Red
Cross, CCRC, Blue Print, NUCWA,
etc., he said.
Extra-curricular work of a sea
sonal or temporary nature, such
as E.-Week, Spring Day, etc., is
also included.
Work in activities or organiza
tions not mentioned above (profes
sional, honorary, military, athlet
ics, etc.) will be considered in the
light of service rendered to the
student body and the University
as an institution, according to Nel
son. The awards are Corn Cob's first
effort in the way of financial as
sistance to individuals and are
unique in that work in extra-curricular
acitivites is a basic require
inent,Nelson stated. They have
been set up both as a median of
financial assistance and as a rec
ognition for participation in work
of an extra-curricular nature.
There are many men who are
desirous of working in activities
who feel that they cannot financial
ly afford to do so, Nelson explained.
Likewise, there are those who hold
part-time jobs and still make a
notable effort to do campus work
which is not monetarily rewarding.

Dr. Julius Stone:
Roscoe Pound Lecturer
Discusses Aggression
An authority on International
law said Monday evening that he
felt the task of fixing rule-of -thumb
tests for the act of aggression is
a "'Vain one, and also one that em
barrasses rather than assists the
tasks of peace enforcement."
Dr. Julius Stone of University
of Sydney, Australia, delivered at
the University the first in a series
of three Roscoe Pound Lectures,
under the general title of Aggres
sion, in International Law."
He then explained that the prob
lem of defining aggression has re
ceived the attention of internation
al lawyers for more than 30 years.'
And the latest attempt at the
colution came to "another frus
trating end in November, 1956,
at the 19th meeting of the United
Nation's special committee of the
General Assembly.
He said the committee's failure
is noteworthy because at the time
it was deliberating the problem:
Israeli forces crossed the Gaza and
Sinai frontiers to eliminate raiders;
the British and French govern
ments partly carried out an air
born invasion of the Suez Canal
Zone; and events occurred which
led to intervention of Soviet forces
to displace the Nagy regime in

on plant hormones, he will deliver
lectures Monday through Friday,
with a public lecture scheduled
Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in Bessey
Hall Auditorium, on "Plant Hor
mones in Agriculture."
Dr. Julius Stone, authority on in
ternational law, will give' the Ros
coe Pound Lectures Tuesday and
Wednesday at 8 p.m. in Love Li
brary Auditorium. The lectures
have the general title of 'Aggres
sion in International Law" and the
subtitles are as follows: Tuesday,
"Obstacles to Definition";, and
Wednesday, "The Aggression No
tion and the Future of Peace En
forcement." The lectures are sponsored joint
ly by the College of Law and mem
bers of the Pound Lectureship
Committee. .
Dr. Stone, Challis Professor of
Jurisprudence and International
Law at the Unversity of Sydney
in Australia, is for the current aca
demic year Visiting Bemis Profes
sor of International Law at har
vard University.
He is the author of eight books,
several of which are .concerned
with international law.

ing a definition must first find a
verbal means of distinguishing in
advance between that use which
may be justified (legitimate self
defense) from that use of force
which is to be condemned and re
pressed as a supreme crime.
' "'Such a delimitation is not al
ways easy to make, even as be
tween individuals within a socie
ty," he pointed out.
Dr. Stone doubted that an ad
vance set of criteria for defining
aggression was of major import
ance for the system of peace en
forcement under the United Na
tions' Charter. '
He pointed out that the vast le
gal powers of the Security Council
and such powers as the general
assembly may have in this re
gard can all be activated under
Chapter VH by any "threat to the
peace, or breach of the peace" as
well as by an act of aggression."
"Obviously, the difficulties of
bringing home a charge of aggres
sion, however defined, are far
graver than those involved in
proof merely of a 'Threat to the
peace' or 'a breach of the peace.'
"Either of these more modest
holdings would give ample powers
. . for collective enforcement or
peace, so far as a definition can
give such power."

In a special report to the Sen
ate, the committee on committees
will suggest that "the Student
Council will nominate to the
Chancellor two students from the
student body. . Jrom which nomi
nees the Chancellor may make

The current method of selecting

mittees calls for the president of

Donald Dysinger, professor of
psychology and chairman of the
committee explained Monday that
the recommendation in no way
limits student representation but
rather is concerned only with es
tablishing a definite policy.
Dysinger stated that his group
is studying each faculty committee
and its membership separately
and will make further reports.
Further recommendations that
the faculty committee on commit
tees will make today include:
(1) The Committee on Student
Affairs be dropped as a Senate
Committee and be re-constituted
as a University Committee on
Student Affairs, in accordance
with the By-Laws and Rules of
the Board of Regents.
(2) The present committees on
Commencement and Honors Con
vocation be dropped as Senate
Committees and re-organized as
a University Committees.
(3) The Senate Committee on
Committees be required to de
fine to the Chancellor, on his
request, the areas of responsibil
ity of these University commit
tees as well as the membership
of each; and make nominations
of faculty members to 1 va
cancies on such committees in
the same manner as senate com
(4) These University Commit
tees shall be directly responsible
to the Chancellor, but shall make
an annual report to the Univer
sity Senate for . informational
In a letter to the Student Coun
cil, which was read on March
13 by President Bruce Brugmann,
Dysinger requested the group "for
mulate a suitable procedure for
nominations" of student repre
sentatives on faculty committees.
Dysinger went on to say that
there was "some sentiment among
the members of the committee
7 that students serving as voting
members of the Senate commit
tees should represent the entire
student body."
Brugmann, in a prepared state
ment, stated in the March 15 issue
of the Nebraskan:
