25, 195S, that Dr. Mitchell was go

Julius Cohen, professor of law
and the then chairman of the facul

ure, sent Mitchell a cable Thurs
day stating that the charges which
Mitchell made in the May 23, 1956,
of The Nebraskan which described
the attack of outsid pressures on
his academic freedom, would war
rant investigation by the commit
tee. Mitchell cabled back that he
would welcome an investigation
and would send whatever informa

The charges which were slated
for consideration by the commit

Nebraskan statement are that he
was advised to tone down his writ,

brought to curtail his expression
on certain subjects.

Top Milk Producers:
WW's Contented Com Calmly Prepare
for National Dairy Month During June
By WALT PATTERSON
The cows of Nebraska and the
nation will have their time of glory
next month, for it's National Dairy
To the cows in fee University
Dairy Department's herd it will
be no different from any other
month. They will still be milked
at the same time and in th same
way, but what difference does that
make, they're happy.
The 75 cows in the herd are divi
ded among four different breeds,
Holstein, Guernsey, Jersey and
Approximately 700,000 pounds of
milk is produced annually by the
herd. The top cow in the herd
produced 20,660 pounds in ten
months. The herd is noted through
out the midwest as having some
of the best producers in this area.
Forty-nine cows out of the herd
had a production record of over
12,000 pounds of milk in ten months.
The animals in the herd have
been shown at different shows
throughout the country. Dairy
animals nave won over 13 grand
championships at the Nebraska
State Fair since 1944. A Brown
Swiss cow was chosen as the top
aged cow of her breed at a show
in Waterloo, Iowa.
"This U the keenest competition
in the country," Dr. Philip Kel
Jey, chairman of the Dairy Depart
The cows are milked at three
o'clock each morning and evening.
About 20 students are hired to
milk and care for the animals. The
students work either full time or
Just a few hours a week.
All the milk produced by the
herd goes to the Dairy Depart
ment's Creamery. Here the milk is
bottled, made into ice cream, cheese
or condensed for storage. The con
densed milk will later be used for
making ice ere ami ,
"In addition to the milk pro
duced In the herd, the creamery
buys some milk froa fanners,"
according to Dr. Kelly.
The products made in the cream
ery are sold to the dormitories
and cafeterias on the University
campus. In addition, they have a
salesroom where students and Lin
eolnites can purchase the dairy
products produced in the cream
"We have the creamery to keep
the staff up to date and to teach
the stndents in the best way pos
sible," Dr. Kelley stated.
In addition to the students em
ployed in the barn, 10 others work
for the dairy department, giving
work to a total of 30 students.
"The reasons we like to em
ploy students are: (1) the student
in the diary field will need the
training that he can receive here,
(2) the students can get to know
the different jobs and machinery
involved in the dairy industry and
(3) it is necessary for us to know
our students better because it
makes it easier to place them on
jobs after graduation," Dr. Kelly
While the students are kept busy
milking or making dairy products,
the teaching staff in the Dairy De
partment is busy trying to make
their job easier. Research projects
that are now being carried on in
clude: work with the vitamin con
tent of dairy products; pasture
management and improvement;
blood studies of cows to determine
their future value; new cheeses
and methods of producing cheese
better; using different products
that will cut down the cost of dairy
products; and herd management
studies using a tape measure to
determine the weight of the cattle.
The Dairy Department also has
a rat laboratory where the nutri
tional value of dairy products is
"Approximately 4,000 or 5,000
people go into the dairy barn and
ack questions of the people work
ing there. About twice that amount
go into the observation room.
There have been people from 4 or
5 different foreign countries and
from all parts of the United
States." Dr. Kelly said.

How to roll a box car Southern style
THE rings this railroader's holding art Timkeo
tapered roller bearings. Mounted, instead of ordi
nary friction bearings, on freight car axles, Timkeo
bearings reduce friction so much you can actually roll
the car by yourself.
Reducing friction to i minimum enables Timken
bearings to eliminate the hot box problem. No. 1 cause
of freight train delay. They roll the load Instead of slid
ing it. And that's why the Southern Railroad has started
to go "Roller Freight", with 415 of its freight cars on v
Timken bearings. One of 58 railroads making the big
switch to ''Roller Freight" to speed shipments, by
eliminating the hot box problem, cutting terminal
bearing inspection time substantially. And when all
railroads go "Roller Freight", they'll sstc an estimated
$224 million annually.
The Timken Company pioneered the use of roller
bearings for freight cars. We're looking for young men
to pioneer improve ;aent like this with tut, help find
new places to reduce friction, speed up machines. Men
who want to grow with the world's largest manufac
turer of tapered roller bearings. Men who will work
hand-in-hand with the railroads, and with the people
who make aircraft, automobiles, construction and fun
We think yon might nd profitable reading In our
booklet, ''Career Opportunities at the Timken Com
pany". Drop us a card at The Timken Roller Bearing
Company, Canton 6, Ohio.
