"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 "I past several years. The charge is $2.50 for a sitting. Four poses are taken from which the students can make their choice.

"The CORNHUSKER was one of the few large school yearbooks that pictured all classes on panel pages.

I Unique Program: Ford Home By GEORGE MOYER Copy Editor 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, yww pfPm'HJt) asfsmtf ?yav.j) University Service, the National Association for Mental Health, the American Heart Association, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and LARC School. who have been Big Sisters. the outstanding A style show was presented as the program.

Sporting a four wheel drive, the monster developed 80 drawbar horsepower and will be" used for wheat farming. The objects of the tests are enumerated in the Nebraska Trac tor Law. They are: 1. To encourage manufacturing of improved tractors. 2. To r e g u 1 a t e manufacturing claims (advertising). 3. To maintain a stock of repair parts in the state at all times. 4. To test tractors at an impartial test lab. - - K Wagner Tested The University tractor testing station at the College of Agri culture is unique In the United Slates.

The motion was introduced last week by Connie Hurst, chairman of the Student Activities commit tee. Earlier, Caire Harper, treasurer of the student activities fund, had asked that the Student Council clarify their position on the use of funds by campus organizations for social purposes. Among the organizations that would be affected by the motion NU Student Presented HeroMedal Dale Coates, senior in the Col lege of Engineering, was one of three Nebraskans awarded Car negie Hero Medals last week for saving the lives of two boys swept away in Blue River flood waters, July 2, 1956.

Publicity Director Chosen By Exec Gary Frenzel, junior in Engi neering, was selected as public ity director for the Engineering Executive Board at its meeting Monday. In addition to his newly ap pointed position, Frenzel is Cor responding Secretary of the Stu dent Council, layout editor of the Blue Print Magazine, member of AIEE, secretary of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity and holder of the Omaiia Steel Works Scholar ship. His job as publicity director will be to publicize the work of the Engineering Executive Board.

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 ing to Larsen.

In explaining the motion, Miss Hurst said, "Cobs and Tassals Inadequacies May Force Repeat On Charter Vote 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 tribunal committee. "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 Another objection raised to the the outgoing president and vice charter is that the grade point i president select two candidates for average is too high for law stu- Expert On Indian Affairs To Address Convocation TV Srinati Chandrasekhar. au-iby many.

Why, some tractors even have two-tone paint jobs but we haven't run into any "You know," said Mr. Larsen, switching back to the subject of the station's origin, "A few years after the original Ford Tractor Company went out of business, Old Henry decided he'd manufacture farm tractors. But he couldn't use his own name on them because the copyright still belonged to that old firm. Henry had to call his tractor the Fordson and believe me he was absolutely livid." after each test.

"We are also studying whether it may be too high for all stu dents. There may be some under graduate who the faculty and Council feel is very well qualified to become a judge, yet his aver age might be too low, Keene said. "We have to be sure this is the best possible charter we can produce before we submit it to the Faculty Senate for approval," Keene said, "Otherwise the facul ty will start asking questions about it and might end up not passing it." In other Council business, John Kinnier, chairman of the judiciary committee moved that the consti tution of Coed Counselors be re jected. The motion carried unan imously.

Senior holdover member, Dave Keene pointed out that "it is the students who give them the priv ilege of earning this money." The question then is, according to Keene, "Should they use this (money) for their own group or should they return it to the stu dents who gave them the priv ilege of earning it?" Gary Frenzel, engineering col lege representative, said that, "Harper has ok'ed these banquets in the past and if we reworked the resolution giving him the au thority ,to approve them it would I be satisfactory to everyone." "A motion such as this would only be another in a long line of passing the buck, John Kinnier, chairman of the Council Judici ary committee, said of Frenzel's suggestion. Miss Hurst closed debate on the motion with a plea for students and members of affected organi zations to express their opinions to Council members on the subject. "We are representing the stu dents here, but if they don't tell us what they want, we can't act as a majority of them wish." she said. The motion will be voted on next week. It was tabled last week 1 for two weeks by Frenzel, "to gjve tne Council time to discuss it anc think about it." Rally ContQsf Slated A contest to name the "Girt Most Likely To Stop a Colorado Buffalo," is being sponsored by Corn Cobs, according to Stan Wid man, rally co-chairman.

Union Movie To Feature Known Stars "The Treasure of Sierra Madre" and Tom and Jerry in "T e n n i Chumps" will be the feature mov ies in the Union ballroom Sunday night at 7:30, according to Kather ine Doyle, film committee mem ber. "The Treasure of Sierra Madre," which stars Humphrey Bogart and Walter Huston, is a stark and hit ting account of the fate whic1- three American derelicts bring upon themselves through their distrust of each other. The gold prospecting trip upon which they embark presents a bril liant study of the violent and dam aging effect of greed upon human relations. The cartoon starts at 7:35 p.m. and the main feature begins at 7:42 p.m. Admission is free to Univer sity Students and faculty wiO identification. Miss Dojle said'
