Creating Problems

From Government-Dean Weaver
"The utter dependence of
our universities on govern
mental aid is now firmly es
tablished," said Dean John
Weaver of the University
Graduate College.
Addressing the Ass n. of
American Universities and
the Assn. of Graduate Schools
Tuesday in Chicago, Weaver
added, "Federal aid is adding
great strength to research and
graduate study in the nation's
universities and colleges, but

Lysistrata should be unique
in certain respects, Russell
said. For example, no cur
tains will be used. Scene
changes win be Indicated by
changes in lighting.
"We will .try to fit the au
dience psychologically into
the play by using such de
vices as using the steps in
front of the stage as props,"
Russell said.
problems which call for
thoughtful caution."
More Federal Aid
Weaver noted that two
thirds of all research expen
ditures in American institu
tions of higher learning came
through federal grants and
contracts this year, and that
the continuing and multiply
ing research needs -will as
sure an accelerated growth of
federal support.
He added thct faculty re
search offers vitality to the
classroom and opportunity es
sential to high faculty morale
and provides facilities which
could not otherwise be pur
chased. Suggesting, however, a
wary appraisal of the effects
of government-supported re
search, Weaver listed five
principal reservations to the
Inadequate Coverage
The projects are not always
adequately covered by grants
and contracts and university
funds must sometimes be
used, he said. Nearly 95 of
the money last year went to
the natural sciences and over
looked the social sciences and

would otherwise not under

said, when it is needed for
existing programs.
Ag Engineer
To Demonstrate
E. A. Olson, University Ex
tension engineer, will help
conduct a demonstration on
the tilt-UD construction of a
beef cattle shelter in Concord !
The demonstration will be
held at the Northeast Nebras
ka Agricultural Experiment
Station. Larry Donegan of the
Portland Cement Association
will assist Olson.
The tilt-up method was orig
inated and perfected by engi
neers at Texas A.&M. Col
lege. It has been termed a
revolutionary idea in farm
building by some observers.

Still Vacancies
There is still room in the
group scenes for both men
and women, Russell said. In
terested students may con
tact him anytime.
Fir9t rehearsal was held
Monday night. First crew
meeting will be 8 p.m. today
in Howell Theatre.
Since the dominant theme
in what Russell terms this
"raucous comedy" is that war
is stupid, costumes may re
flect an international air.
Russell said that they have
been toying with the idea of
dressing the Amazon women
in such a way that each would
be dressed representative of
a different country, such as
Russia, China, France and
The implications of such
costuming would be that no
matter who originates it, war
is a ridiculous thing.

Trick er Treat'-
Tiny Spooks Do
Well on Campus
Should you bump into a spook or witch about 3 foot
high Friday night, treat it kindly. It probably has a paper
sack in its hand and is invading campus intent on tricks
and treating. .'
Each year a few little beggars dressed in sheets or
rags or black dresses wander inttS the Union, looking for
candy or food to put in their sacks.
Little Spooks Treated
And the little spooks are usually treated to a coke or
an apple, the student union manager said.
But when spooks approach the 6 foot high level and
wear ivy league trousers, the free food doesn't flow so
Sorority houses prepare for the invasion from Never
never land by stocking their pantries with pop corn, candy
kisses and other goodies.
Spook Show
In honor of Halloween, the Union is featuring a double
feature spook show designed to "scare the yell out of the
stoutest men," said John West, film chairman.
Boris Karloff stars in "Bride of Frankenstein" and
Otto Kruger may be seen in "Dracula's Daughter." Both
movies will be shown in the Union ballroom Friday at 8
p.m. Admission is 10 cents per person.
Although few pranks are played on University campus
on Halloween, some precautions are necessary.
The constructors of the Union addition are posting
guards at the site that night to insure adequate protection
of the construction material.

win do the best job possible
under the circumstances',
Glynn said.
The question of whether or
not the sororities would con
tinue their participation in the
auction and the drive t h 1 1
year was discussed in a spe

dents Thursday night and ia
the regular Panhellemc meet
ing Monday.
The house president!
stressed that they wished to
continue to contribute to AUF,
raising as much money as
they could through house
functions, solicitations, etc.
Single Donation
The consensus of the group
was also to contribute the
money through one lump Pan
hellenic donation, not 15 in
dividual donations.
If individual girls in the
houses still wish to help with
the independent solicitation
drive, they may, Miss Girard
pointed out.
Glynn pointed out that Pan
hellenic had offered some
good criticisms about the auc
tion and the independent
drive, such as the amount of
time spent and the question
able neighborhoods which the
girls were often assigned.
Short Notice
"I question the proceedings
of PanHel on such short
notice one week before the
drive and five weeks before
the auction", he added.
"Why didnt they think of
this nine months ago so we
could plan to make up for the
$4,000 deficit," be comment
ed. The average AUF auction
brought in about $3,300. Lin
coln solicitations usually net
ted about $900, according to

of the Lincoln independent so

Wilson, in charge of the AUF
auction, were not available
for comment.
