Friend, Father, Elder Statesman:
Aiding Foreign Students Rewarding
To Retiring Adviser, Dr. Rosenlof
By Sondra Whalen 1
Friend, father and elder
statesman to the University's
international students,
George Rosenlof will com
plete 38 years with the Uni
versity in August.
"I think one of my most re
warding experiences has been
the satisfaction of helping our
overseas students see the es
sence of the American way of
life," Dr. Rosenlof said.
NU Benefits
"The University has bene
fitted from these students,"
he explained. "We now have
alumni all over the world,
and in responsible positions in
their home countries, too."
Dr. Rosenlof has been the
foreign student adviser since
1945, immediately following
World War II. He was not
officially recognized by the
Board of Regents with the ti

of Admissions three years

'I was made a member of
the House," Dr. Rosenlof
said, "and because my par

was made an honorary mem
ber of the Swedish group."
'Greatest Institution
He called the House the
greatest institution "f o r in

built anywhere."
"My most regrettable expe
rience was when the Interna

banded for a Faculty Club,"
he explained. "It resulted in
the defeat of n international

Dr. Rosenlof received his
Masters' Degree from the
University in 1922. Then, in
1945, as Dean of Admissions,
he began to receive letters
from students in other coun
tries who wanted to attend
the University. .
Personal Letters
"There were practically no
international students here
then," he said. "I wrote to
"each one personally, telling
him about the University."

"Why you're nuts to take a course from that guy."
"Imagine that no morning classes free for coffee oa
Monday, Wednesday and Friday."
The above have been typical comments of campus stu
dents as that time of year for arranging class schedules
rolls around once more.
And the perfection which everyone wishes to attain la
their schedules once again seems to be missing, judging
from the frantic searching of class schedule books, the de
cisions to take only a dozen hours of classes and the smash
ing of pictures of the Administration Building.
Some specific comments below give cross-section of the
feelings about the schedules most people have pulled. Tha
names are psuedonyms to protect the interviewed and
especially to protect the writer:
Etaoin Furd, grad student in cuisine (his name always
seems to pop up) :
"It is disappointing that a man of my caliber must ba

take. It is with a deep regret that I announce that I have

Everett Klautze, sophomore in knife-sharpening:
"Like, man my schedule is bad. I gotta get outta the
pad to hit my classes real "early next semester like, and tha
profs I have, well, you know, they're kinda like way out"
Wanna Betta, junior in Alaskan forestry:
"Im just going to have a really keen schedule. Why it's
so peachy. I'm in Alaskan forestry you know, and 14 of the
15 flours I'm taking I'll get to earn when we gi to Juneau,
you know. And we only have to stay one day."
Y. Not, senior in agreement:
"It is just, fitting and proper that I have arrived at such
a suitable schedule. Despite the fact that I have two four,
hour labs and 8 o'clock lectures every day in this one
hour course, insect dissection, I'm very satisfied. You know
why, because I've been accepted into Cal Tech. I'm leav

quest would be valid by any
student involved in the eleo
E. Moses, head of the IBM
Department, enumerated tha
two chief causes of ballot re
jections and voidments.
Haste a Factor
Haste on the part of. the stu
dents when voting, thus failing
to read or not following the
directions rei rring to the spe
cific number and-or sex of
candidates to be elected, was
cited as one reason.
The other is the failure ef
the students to fill in the bal
lot in the correct manner.
Ballots which were marked
reasonably close to the pre
scribed manner were counted
by hand by a committee,
Moses stated.
Recounts Possible
Students who desire re
counts are welcome to do so,
according to Schick and
Moses. Moses said that the
"devices used to count the
ballots are mechanical and
are not above erring.
The ballots were counted
with one faculty member
present and the ballots will
be kept by the senior Student
Council advisor for a period
of thirty days after the elec
tion for the purpose of re
counts, as is stipulated in the
Council Constitution.
To Swap
A teaching exchange will
bring a professor of economics
to Nebraska from California
and will allow a University
professor to spend his. sum

Dr. Edward Schmidt pro
fessor of economics, will
teach at the University of
Southern California during the
summer session.
In return, Dr. E. Bryant
Phillips, associate professor
of economics at the California
school, will teach here.
Dr. Phillips will teach not
only principles of economics
but also a course in home eco
nomics. His text is currently
used here in the home eco
nomics course.
Last year, Dr. Phillips was
one of 50 winners of a national
contest sponsored by the
Committee for Economic De
velopment New York City.
