To Increase Interest
The temporary change from the
normal format of the magazine
stems from an effort by the Blue
Print staff to increase interest in
the various phases of engineering,
A large number of high
school students will be visiting
the University during E Week,
end added interest should bring
more students into the College of
Engineering next year and in
years to come, Frensel said.
The April issue will carry pic
tures of interesting machines and
other features of the engineering
departments. Short explanations of
the pictures will constitute most
of the printing in the issue.
The Blue Print will be sold
during the E Week tours. Students
from over 300 high schools at
tended E Week last year.
Frenzel said the magazine would
be published two weeks late in
April to allow time to run pictures
of the E Week displays.
The Blue Print has a circula
tion of over 1750 and sends copies
to almost every engineer in the
state. Twenty five cents is charged
for the magazine although it actu
ally costs 52 cents to publish.
The staff feels that people should
know what is happening in the
field at a lower cost. The loss is

others tried to defend them," as
serts Dr. Poland.
Dr. Poland also brought out that
the Protestants as a small minority
were not strong enough to exer
cise enough influence to start a
full scale revolution. As further
evidence he cited the fact that
the Protestants finding themselves
in a position to participate in poli
tics did not eke out vengeance upon
the Catholics and that formal Prot
estant worship was suppressed for
some time after the revolution.
Comments on Review
Commenting on the review in
"The London Times," Dr. Poland
expressed his "elation" and "am
azement" over the "sympathetic
review." "The honor," he said,
"was completely unexpected." Dr.
Poland, a subscriber to "The Iin
don Times," missed the issue in
which his review appeared and was
not aware of It until a friend
pointed it out to him.
Dr. Poland received his B.A. at
Swarthmore College and his M.A.
and PhD at Princeton. Before
coming to the University of Nebras
ka, he taught at Denison Univers
ity. His book, "French Protestantism
and the French Revolution," was
published by the Princeton Uni

of Farmhouse Fraternity.
