Lincoln Resident Section
Independent Lincoln residents
will be pictured individually in a
special section in the 1958 CORN
HUSKER, Bobbie Holt, associate
editor, announced today.
"This section will be treated as
one of the seven minor divisions
in the book and will be intro
duced by a special division pic
ture," Miss Holt said.
"The Lincoln Residents Section
will be composed of individual pic
tures arranged in panel pages.
Such a section has been added as
a part of the CORNHUSKER's
drive to have 100 per cent student
representation in the 1958 year
book," she explained.
Individual pictures are being
taken at Edholm-Blomgren Studi-!1"
os, 318 South 12th St., as in the
past several years. The charge is
$2.50 for a sitting. Four poses are
taken from which the students can
make their choice.

Henry Ford, the famed tycoon
who put America on wheels, used
to be considered a pretty shrewd
operator by the people in the auto
motive industry. However, there
was one time that Old Henry got
taken, and because he did, the
University has become unique
among the colleges and universi
ties of the nation.
Back in 1915 a Minneapolis trac
tor manufacturer hired a chief en
gineer whose last name coinci
dentally happened to be Ford. Also
coincindentally, the name of the
manufacturers product was re
named "The Ford Tractor" soon
after the young engineer settled
into the company office routine.
Because of the name, W. F. Cro
zer, a farmer near Osceola, pur
chased one of the tractors. It did
hot take Crozer long to find that
the name had nothing to do with
the value of the product. In the
eyes of Crozer, the Ford Tractor
was a collosal flop.
Other people were having their
troubles with the Ford Tractor too
and the company soon went out
of business. But Crozer became
convinced that the Nebraska farm
er should be protected from farm
tractor frauds of this kind. Conse
quently, after being elected to the
state legislature, Crozer introduced
a bill providing for the establish
ment of the tractor testing station
at the Universiy College of Agri
culture. The bill, of course,
passed, thus establishing the only
tractor testing station in the na
tion at a college or university.
Since 1920, the University t ting
station has run 632 ind idual
tests, according to Lester L irsen,

A motion recommending to the

It is interesting to note that the
rfumber of tests per year by the
lab have almost doubled since
farmers have been seeking to cut
higher operating costs through the
use of diesel and L.P. gas, accord

"The trend in tractors today is
a lot like motor car," Larsen said.

The charter of the Student Tri
bunal, approved in a campus ref
erendum last spring, may have to
be resubmitted to the student
body, according to Dave Kenne,
chairman of the Student Council
"The charter needs revision in
some places. Several sections we
feel are severely inadequate and
need revision." Keene said.
In event of revisions, the char
ter would have to return to the
student body for approval of the
changes, according to Keene.
"Also, the charter printed in the
Daily Nebraskan recently was er
roneous," Keene said, "There were
several typographical errors and
one complete section was left out."
Among the questions raised 'by
the present charter, according to
Keene, is the method of selecting
the nine judges. "No provision has
been made for grad students.
Since they make up a large part
of the University, we feel they
ought to be represented," Keene
said. i stitution currently provides that
