Books don't magically appear in

ances ia Love Library is an inter
esting process.
In the first place, from SO to
100 books a day are ordered by
the library business department to
keep the library up to date and
best able to serve the University
These books are ordered, how
ever, only after careful joint se
lections by the teaching faculty
and the library staff. Every fac
ulty department from Business Ad
ministration to Physical Education
select current books and research
publications for their respective
departments. ,
Also, the library staff does its
best to anticipate the future needs
of both students and teachers.
Packaged turkey meat is not
available on the market, the re
searchers said. They are trying
to find out if housewives would
like it in packaged form.
They divide each turkey to pro
vide two packages containing a
back, wing tips, neck, thigh bones,
drumstick and boneless breast.
Two other packages contain a
boneless thigh, boneless breast fil
lets, and wing sections.
This makes excellent soup stock,
the poultry men said.
The project is designed as a
means of helping homemakers
serve turkey without cooking the
entire bird at once. In addition,
whole turkeys usually are too large
for the average family to use in
one or two meals.
Packaged turkey should help
homemakers make more efficient
use of turkey throughout the year
not just at holiday time, the
poultrymen concluded.

somewhat this year, reported
Morgan Holmes. Five skits, in

in the competition, and only two,

between the two of the skits for
second place, two trophies will oe

Spectators at the Fall Revue
estimated the crowd attending the

The show was termed by Holmes

of Kosmet Klub to present.
The Revue was given for the

Gets Books
Of Sources
There are thousands of book ti
tles to choose from, and the li
brary business department has at
least one dealer in every major
country in the world in which
books may be directly purchased.
The library also acquires many
of its books by exchanging faculty
publications with other Universi
ties and academic institutions.
The University has approximate
ly fifteen series of publications a
year that are sent to other col
leges. These colleges in return
send their publications to Nebras
ka. These amount to several thou
sand publications a year.
On top of all these books, the
library also subscribes to over
6,000 magazine periodicals.
All the professional members of
the library staff help in the se
lecting of the books but only four
or five members work on the ac
tual business operation.

gents Favor CoimBnittec
The Board of Regents Saturday
approved a proposal by Chancel
lor Clifford Hardin that faculty
representatives be named to a
committee to study the petitions
which have been presented regard
ing certification of teachers.
Regent Frank Foote gave the
only dissenting vote. Foote also
proposed an amendment to the
motion to include the approval of
the six-point proposal of the 11 pro
fessors of Arts and Science Col
lege. The amendment failed to re
ceive a second.
Norman Cromwell, the
spokesman for the group of Arts
and Sciences professors, said that
he "wishes the new committee
well and hopes that it will begin
to operate immediately."
Cromwell said he did not be-
KeWnCrTecessary for the group
to be represented on the committee
to work with the chancellor. He
said he was certain that there
would be others who are intereeted
in the problem and who could
study the matter objectively.

11 Request
The request of tlie 11 members
of the staff of the College of Arts
and Sciences read in part:
"We believe that the following
specific steps taken at this time
would enable the University of
Nebraska to render more effective
service to the people of the state
in this national educational emer
gency: "1) Transfer the certifying au
thority from Teachers College to
the Office of Registration and
Records, which would recom
mend for certification those stu
dents who have completed the
courses in education as required
by law and who have been ap
proved by the pertinent subject
matter departments of the vari
ous colleges.
"Z Abolish the system of dual
matriculation in the University
of Nebraska. This cumbersome
procedure has discouraged stu
dents from selecting teaching as
a career, and would be unneces
sary if the above recommenda
tion were adopted.
"3) Ask that the Nebraska State
Legislature lower the number of
professional education courses re
quired for certification from 18 to
15 hours the number specified by
the North Central Association. In
this new era we are entering, the
various fields are becoming so
complex that more and more time
is required for their mastery. (The
Teachers College now requires 20
hours of professional courses, since
the course in practice teaching
was changed from three to five
hours of credit).
"4) Recognize teaching done by

The Board of Regents author
ized Saturday the removal of El

years of women's campus activ
ities, ana tour temporary oarrats-;
type buildings erected during the
post-war enrollment peak.
Ellen Smith Hall, which was ac
quired by the University in 1920,
will be removed from the north
west corner of 14th and R streets
sometime early this spring. Busi
ness Manager Carl Donaldson said.
The Board also agreed to per
mit the Alumni Association to re
move woodwork, hardware, and
colored glass from the building to
equip a memorial room in the
Student Union Building.

"The need for a greater output
of qualified teachers is not new.
The launching of an earth satellite
and the official discussions of tht
implications of the event have fo
cused a great deal of popular at
tention on the need, but this
problem did not originate with
either the Russian satellite or the
discussion of it.
"Here at the University of Ne

are being made to encourage, im
prove, and speed the training of
teachers, especially those in the
subject matter areas of science,

efforts of the Colleges of Arts and
