Exile Literature Published:
NU Professor Collected German Works
Shortly after the rise of Adolph
Hitler to power, Dr. William Pfei
ler noted that many of the writ
ers whose works he knew were
leaving Germany.
The University professor 6f Ger
manic Languages watched them
take up their literary activities
in Moscow, London, New York,
California, Paris, and New Zea
land. At that time, he mused that
"some day, the writings of these
men will be of much interest."
Quietly he set about collecting
the various words of these Ger
mans in exile, continuing through
the war years which brought great
difficulties in communications.
This past month, the University
Press has published a monograph,
the first of several of his intended
studies dealing with the German
literature that originated in exile
since 1933.
Entitled "German Literature in
Exile," the monograph shows that
the literature to these men be
came a tool or calling to fight for
human values. The authors wanted
to combat the Nazi regime and
fascism in general through their

Californian Praises
TV Physics Class
A California educator Thursday
acclaimed the Physics classes tele
vised daily by the University edu
cational television station, KUON
TV, and the Extension Division.
Dr. J. Chester Swanson of the
University of California said that
the instruction in physics which
is received by 11 eastern Nebras
ka nigh scnoois is possibly un
equalled in the world.
And the amazing fact, he pointed
out, is that some of these schools
did not offer any classes in the sub
ject last year.
The professor of school admin
istration is visiting the University
to examine the in-school program
which is being televised for 26 Ne-
! braska- high schools involving 700
! students. It is being financed by an
$115,050 grant from the Fund for
the Advancement of Education.
Dr. Swanson, who earned his doc
torate degree in physics, comment
ed that the film which is used to
instruct the physics course was fi
nanced by the Ford Foundation on
practically a blank check basis.
He said that Nebraska and Okla-
to small high schools.
After visiting v a ri o u s high
schools in the state which are par
ticipating in the program, Dr.
Swanson said that tie found that
the courses also taught the stu
dents the art of concentration.
He praised Esther Montgomery,
Lincoln English teacher, for her
worK on tne senior English pro
gram. "How else could these stu
dents in smaller high schools have
the advantages of one of the finest
English teachers in Nebraska?"
Calling television a "tremendous
educational tool," he said the ef
fect of commercial stations also
has been very great on the young
ster. The kindergarten child today
age ten years ago."
The future expansion of the edu-
cational television technique for
the smaller high schools should
have a discernible effect in the
Nebraska child coming from small
towns, he believed.

Dr. Pfeiler pointed out that this
literature foretold the coming and
development of World War II.
Even more important, he explain
it revealed the start of the con
flict between communism and de
mocracy. Many German writers working
in Moscow and Mexico became
sympathetic with communism.
Their work, Dr. Pfeiler admits,
has a vigor and aggressiveness
often lauking in that of men of
more democratic-liberal leanings.

covered that in the past were nev
er found because of the inability of
the smaller schools to offer courses
in physics, chemistry and mathe
matics." The courses televised by KUON
TV now include three in mathe
matics, and one each in senior Eng
lish, beginning high school Span
ish, art, and physics.
"Normally only a favorite few
would be getting the instruction
that is now available to these 26
high schools," Dr. Swanson said.
Those schools participating in the
physics course include: Beaver
Crossing, Gretna, Holmesville, Lou
isville, Springfield, Thayer, Luther
Academy at Wahoo, Walton, Gresh

Slated Guest

Dick Arneson, president of IFC.
will be the featured guest on Tues

the topic, "Is the Greek system

Anyone who did not attend the
practice sessions is still eligible
to try out, according to Karen
Parsons, president.
This vigor, he believes results
partly from the encouragement
which the communists gave to writ
ers and artists at a time when
they were receiving little atten
tion elsewhere.
The study also deals with the
question, whether any writing deal
ing with the "problems of the
day" deserves consideration as se
rious literature.
In his writings, Dr. Pfeiler said:
"The German exiled writers
have done their share in perpet
uating German culture; and they
have contributed to whatever it was
worth to bring freedom back to
the german people. While they
were on the side of those who
conducted the struggle against
Hitler and the Third Reich, they
never considered the folks at home
their enemies but centered on them
their deepest concern.
". . . One might say that the
terrifying events of the exile years,
the change of circumstances in
their lives, had not weakened the
exiles in their inner strength nor
their belief in the creative forces
of nature and mankind."
Becauie of Dr. Pfeiler's efforts
at collecting these various works,

Microfilm Records
News In Library
A student can walk into the
University's library and pick up
a week's issue of the world's
largest newspaper in a container
no larger than a match box.
The explanation is microfilm, a
commodity unknown 24 years ago
in libraries, but now common in
many, including Don L. Love Me
morial Library at the University.
Within the last ten years the
University Library has added reg
ularly to its microfilm collection
until at present it has approxi
mately 25 miles of such film.
Recently it made two noteworthy
additions. One is acquisition of the
complete London Times file ex
tending back to the first edition
in 1785. The other is acquisition
of the New York Times back to
its first edition on Sept. 18, 1851.
Microfilm comes in strips and
looks like any other type of film.
For microfilming newspapers or
books the pages are simply laid
out and photographed, thereby con
siderably reducing them from their
original size.
The size of the average news
papp is two feet by one foot. On
YWCA Begins
Button Sales
The University YWCA is begin
ning what it hopes will become
"a tradition on this campus"
the selling of Homecoming but
tons. Sales are scheduled to begin
no later than Wednesday, accord
ing to Terry Mitchem, chairman
of the project.
"We'd like to see the Homecom
ing buttons become a tradition on
this campus," said Terry. "In oth
er schools such as the University
of Iowa, for instance, twenty-five
thousand people wear them every
year. Maybe, in a small way, this
will boost our Nebraska spirit."
In addition to contacting t h e
business clubs of Lincoln, the
YWCA will be selling these buttons
at a booth in the Union this Friday
night and also at the Coliseum
on the day of the Homecoming
game. The price is 15 cents.
"Fifteen cents is such a small
price to help boost the Nebraska
spirit," said Terry. "We hope just
everyone buys one."
For more information about the
purchase of Homecoming buttons,
for yourself or for your organiza
tion, contact either Terry Mitchem
or the YWCA office, phone 2-2079.

Newspapers from an entire year
which have been microfilmed take
up less than one cubic foot of

The same volume of newspapers
in their original paper editions

To read the miniature micro
