University To Host Adult
The fourth annual Adult Educa

Is expected to draw between 75
and 100 Nebraska educators, li
brarians, ministers and lay citi
zens interested in adult education.

Of the Fund for Adult Education,
will be the principal speaker. He

In the Union on Sunday nights.
Due to increasing attendance at
the Sunday night movies plans are
being made to install a cinema
scope screen by next semester or
at least by next fall.
According to Bob Handy, direc
tor of activities, extra chairs were
needed to seat the Sunday night
audience. Handy considered this
due partly to a better program of
movies and more effective pub
licity. Major events held at the Union
this fall included the Chancellors's
reception, the Chancellor's faculty
party, and the Frosh Hop. Between
800 and 900 students attended the
Chancellor's reception September
13, showing a drop of about 600
from last year. There was a turn
out of 1000 students at the Frosh
Hop September 14, and some 1100
faculty members were present for
the Chancellor's faculty party held
in the Union September 16.

Did you know that in 1935 the
governor of Nebraska was H. L.
Cochran? Also In that year Nebras
ka's Chancellor was E. A. Bur
nett, the dean of Women was
A. H. Heppner and the dean of
men was T. J, Thoippson.
Another fact wnich was true In
1935, was the fact that there were
82 fraternities on campus com
pared to 24 on campus today.
Fraternities represented then
but not now are Alpha Sigma Phi,
Chi Phi, Delta Sigma Delta, Del

Out of 19 sororities represented

today non-existent are Alpha Del

Phi Omega Pi.
its customers are local stores, how
ever. Most fraternities and sorori
ties also subscribe.
Two other factors will enlarge
the radio audience. The Agricul
ture College has built new dormi
tories for married students and
have wired them to receive KNUS.
The second factor, is that the pro
grams have been scheduled for two
hours later than in the past.

The Daily Nebraskan has been
publishing the news around cam

you ever wondered what has hap
pened in the past on any certain
day? Let us glance back to see
what has previously happened on
the first day of October.
Twenty years ago football . en
thusiasm ran high on campus and
nearly every article in the Rag
pertained to the forthcoming game
between Nebraska and Minnesota.
The front page contained an edi
torial which declared that over 500
students had "lousy" seats, for the
game while any bum in the streets
of Minneapolis could get a seat on
the 50-yard line.
The cry seemed to be 'Biff Bier

assistant Dean of Women in 1950.
The change was recommended
by Dean J. P. Colbert of the Di
vision of Student Affairs.
"The scholarship program has
been growing by leaps and bounds.
We need someone to be in charge
of it full time, and Miss Johnston
has been devoting full time to it."
Corporations and private individ
uals have been building the schol
arship fund up to the point where
it is no longer a side issue on the
campus. It has taken on such pro
portions that where a committee
once could handle the scholarships
in a meeting or two it now takes
the full time of a staff and there
must be somebody in charge of
it, Dean Colbert said.
Such corporations as General
Electric, DuPont, and General
Motors have ' made it a practice
to provide funds for scholarships.
New blood is needed in industry
more than it has ever been needed
in the past.
In his state of the University
speech last Thursday, Chancellor
Hardin stressed the fact that now
more than ever the business and
professional worlds are demanding
trained young people.
Corporations have set up special
scholarships to Provide the

The 1942 Nebraskan, fifteen
years ago, was filled with news of
the war. The lead story explained
how the Homecoming displays
were going to be made of scrap
metal and rubber instead of the
traditional elaborate materials.
Each house was to be allowed only
five dollars to spend on their dis
play. The 1947 paper declared that the
University had gwown to 10,000
students. Main stories were about
the dedication of the new Love Li
brary by Chancellor R. G. Gustav
son the following Sunday and Dr
Kurt von Schuschnigg, former
chancellor of Austria, who was to
come to the University to speak on
"The Problems of Europe." Other
interesting stories ten years ago
were on the University Liquor
Policy which, evidently, had been
violated by some students.
Five years ago sororities and
fraternities were donating the
money alloted for Homecoming to
the polio fund. Students were upset
at the raise in the price of the
Student Directory from 50 to 65
cents. Incidentally it h now $1.75.

as long as the Daily Nebraskan
continues to keep the student body

the habit of providing scholarships
