"I congratulate the stu

finally realized that some
changes must be made and
have proceeded to remedy the
problem," Handy said.
Although he said he felt the
basic Union program is
sound, he feels the need for
ereativeness, sensitivity and
greater enthusiasm.
"Isolation is stagnation,"
he commented, adding that if
the Union or any other organ
ization isolates itself from the
rest of the campus, it fails to
live up to its responsibility.

suggested that all organiza

should meet for a critical
evaluation of the function of
their group.
The need for a good lead

need of the Union for train

concepts on which the Union
was founded, he commented.
"I hope you don't think
I'm pessimistic, because I'm
not," Handy said.
"We will have one of the

Shick said.
According to Shick, he and
a Council advisor felt that

Valid Election
George Porter, IFC presi
dent, told the Nebraskan that
when the IFC heard that the
filings were still open that it
asked certain candidates to
run on the Engineering and
Biz Ad tickets.
Porter said that this was
done in order to make a valid
Council election and give
these colleges adequate rep
resentation. By Thursday afternoon only
five students had filed for
Business Administration and
four students for Engineering.
Engineering C o 1 1 e g e has
three Council representatives.
Therefore two ' more filings
are needed to give them full
college representation.
Business Administration
now has three representatives
of which one must be a wom

filed, only one of these... a
One additional woman can

Rosenlof Praised for
The following Is a tribute to the re
tiring forelm student advisor for the
I'nlversilT. Dr. Georee W. Rosenlof.
The article was written by Ken Ark
baratl, president of the Cosmopolitan
At the end of the current
school year, a professor
will go into retirement. To
many of us this will mean
nothing and will be regard
ed as the natural conclusion
to a long and arduous ca
reer. This man, however, is
known to the foreign stu
dents of this campus as
both an efficient adminis
tratorin which capacity
he has devoted his energies
and time to help foreign
students and a kind and
gentle person. It is with a
deep sense of loss and good
wishes that we anticipate
the retirement of Dr.
George W. Rosenlof, pro
fessor of Secondary Educa
tion and official advisor to
Foreign Students.
It has only been three
years ago that Dr. Rosenlof
was made the official ad
visor by the University
Administration. And pre
vious to this time, he exer
cised the duties of that of
fice in his then official ca
pacity of Dean of Admis
sions and Inter-institutional
I am sure that those for
eign students who have been
here more than three years
will appreciate the tremen
dous problems Dr. Rosenlof
faced in trying to maintain
contact with the rising num
bers of students from over
seas. For several months be
fore coming to study at this
University, the only rela

Frenzel said if the Daily
Nebraskan were to print these
statements made in the inter
views that the Nebraskan
then might try to hold Tribu
nal judges to statements they
made when the Tribunal be
gan operation in the fall.
This would not be good,
Frenzel said, as the judges
might change their minds
after conferring with other
Tribunal members.
The action of the Council
followed the precedent estab
lished last year when the
Daily Nebraskan was not al
lowed to attend the Tribunal
judge interviews.

Gives NV
$2,000 Gift
A $2,000 gift from the Camp
bell Soup Co. has been given
to the University, according
to Chancellor Clifford Hardin.
The gift is part of the Com
pany's annual aid-to-education
program, said W. L. Par
vin of Omaha, manager of the
Nebraska plants of Campbell
Soup Co. Parvin presented
the gift.
Parvin said the company
recognized some years ago
the importance of education
to free enterprise and indus
trial growth in the U.S.
"We hope that our program
will be helpful in advancing
the cause of education in the
ignore. Disillusionment
about Americans tends to
set in and the student feels
naturally hostile to Ameri
cans in general.
However, when these
things happen and the ,
thought of Dr. Rosenlof
flashes through one's mind,
it is a relief to know that
there is at least one Amer
ican who has more than a
superficial interest in the
foreign student. He is sym
pathetic and understands
the problems and has a
wealth of experience in deli
cate situations that make in
ternational relations be
come better or worse.
Though Dr. Rosenlof 's of
ficial duties are over.the
impression he made upon ,
the hundreds of internation- '
als who came under his
jurisdiction will be a living
memory that all the foreign
students will take back with
them to their own nations
and governments.
To honor Dr. Rosenlof,
the Cosmopolitan Club is
holding a dinner Satur
day in the Student Union
Ballroom. This is an occa
sion that should not be
missed by any foreign stu
dent, faculty members as
sociated with the guest of
honor and American s t u
dents who have shewn sus
tained interest in interna
tional relations on the cam
pus. Come to this dinner
and help us give Dr.
Rosenlofabig sendoff.
