they hand their books in, and
set the price they wish to ask.
"We advise that they ask
about 50 of the price of the
book new", Tempero said,
or try to hit a point mid
way between the price they'd
receive at a commercial book
store and what they would
have to pay for the book."
Adds 20c
He added that Alpha Phi
Omega then adds 20 cents to
the studen's price, for handl
ing costs.
Selling of the books will be
gin Feb. 2 through 4 and con

money received tor dooks

500 books came into the pool
and 300 were sold.
"We hope to double that this
year", ne said.

Loup City Top
Students to Benefit
Four members of the Uni

City High School in a pilot
project aimed at motivating
and encouraging outstanding
In cooperation with Loup
City superintendent of schools
Sam Porter, the University
professors and eight outstand
ing Loup City citizens will
conduct weekly evening sem
inars on various subjects in
the humanities. The profes
sors will help conduct four of
the seminars and will serve
in an advisory capacity in the
selection of reading lists.
Some 17 students have been
chosen on the basis of quali
fying examinations, past
grades and teachers' recom
mendations to participate in
the seminar. No formal cred
it will be offered.
The project evolved as a re
sult of Loup City's selection
by the North Central Associ
ation of Secondary Schools
and Colleges as a pilot school
in their "Guidance and Moti
vation of Superior and Tal
ented Students" program.
A similar program was
tried last year at Long Mount,
Colo, with the cooperation of
the University of Colorado
faculty members.
According to Dr. Walter
Wright, assisting dean of the
University's College of Arts
and Sciences and one of the
participating professors, one
purpose of the program is to
encourage the students to
form ideas for themselves.
The program is an illustra
tion, he said, of what a high
school can do for top schol
ars under existing conditions.
Professors participating
from the College of Arts and
Sciences include Dean Walter
Militzer, professor of chemis
try, who will conduct a sem
inar with Dr. B. L. Miller of
Loup City on "The World of
Copernicus, An g u s Armi-
tage, and Dean Wright who
will discuss "King Lear."

ate professor of philosophy,
will conduct a seminar with

The books will be sold
from Feb. 2 to 6 in Room 1
of the Ag Union from 9 a.m.
to 3 p.m. Unsold books and
money may be picked up on
or after Feb. 6, according to
Norm Rohlfing, secretary of
the Agronomy Club.
"The exchange will take all
kinds of books, not just those
dealing with agricultural sub
jects," Rohlfing said. "We
hope this exchange will ease
the problem of buying books
on the Ag campus."

All nominations for the

the Daily Nebraskan office in

by noon today.
One senior or graduate stu

Persons previously nomin
ated for the award are: Dal

not eligible due to his position
on Pub Board, Lyle Hansen
and Terry Mitchem.
Don Lentz
The letter of nomination for
Donald Lentz was the joint
effort of five persons who
have worked with him.
In part, the letter read:
"When Donald Lentz came
to the University in 1937, he
brought with him a wealth
of musical experience gained
while playing flute under
some of the world's great
conductors in the New York
Symphony, t h e Barrerre
Symphony, the Sousa Band
and in theater, ballet and ra
dio. "During the first four
months of 1957, he and his
wife visited the Orient on a

could ot register Monday

Bob Blair chairman of
the council committee, not
ed the lack of complaints
about the new system.
Many suggestions have
come in, he said, but only
one criticism about the plan
being unfair when it rotates
in the spring.
Calm Coated
The usual frenzy and fe
ver of registration was coat
ed by a clam and rather or
ganized group of people go
ing about the business of
pulling their cards.
There appeared to be no
red faced or tear stained
pose of setting down folk
music, still undiluted by
western influence.
"Professor Lentz has
brought recognition not only
. I rh
to the University Band but to
the University as a whole.
Last spring the band was one
of seven from throughout the
nation invited to perform at
the Brussels Worlds Fair.
"A crusader for better
bands in high schools, Profes
sor Lentz is given credit for
the building of Band Day at
the University, which now
serves as a model for such
events across the nation.

Dr. Carter

staff of Southern Illinois Uni
versity, was hailed in his let
ter of nomination as a "Fine

thusiasm and interest."
The letter continued:
students begging for 10 a.m.
class cards.
The straggly lines of peo
ple blocking the English,
business, or engineering
sections also seemed to
have dwindled.
Proud Pointer
Dr. Hoove'1' proudly point
ed out that the longest line
on the first day consisted
of 20 people.
It was cleared in ten
minutes, he added.
The average time for a
complete registration was
clocked at 20 minutes, ac
cording to Blair.
He also emphasized that
Tuesday would be the test
day for Nebraska's newest
dish alphabet soup.
"Last year Dr. Carter was
informal spokesman for a
group of 11 University pro
fessors who struck out at the
laxity in requirements for
Teachers College. His idea
and theirs was that teacher
certification be placed in the
hands of the instructors in
the students major field.
"Dr. Carter and the other
10 professors were immedi
ately silenced by what seem
ed to be a coalition of Teach
ers College and its friends in
Adminny HaU. These men
undoubtedly realized the po
sition in which they were
placing themselves, a;.d it la
a tribute to their integrity
that they chose to speak nev
ertheless." Schrag Active
The writer of the nomina
tion for Larry Schrag said,
"To be awarded such an hon
or as Outstanding Nebras
kan, a worthy candidate
should have given a great
deal of time, interest and pa
tience to activities and or
ganizations, scholarship and
the well-being of the Univers
ity itself."
"As a freshman, Larry was
a member of Junior IFC and
Varsity Men's Glee Club. In
his sophomore year he joined
two organizations in which he
later became their chief:
Corn Cobs and the Cornhusk
er business staff.
"He became the president
of his fraternity, Phi Kappa
Psi, and as president he
again became a member of
the IFC.

leadership in activities

or year is that of student
