UNIVERSITY OF NEBR. ' '"'"'xry : iielief at Last tHffOne More Week, And Then Vacation -rch:ves . ! By Dick Stuckey "If I can make it through this week, I may possibly make it through my life!" This seems to be the air on campus as the collegiate set moves through hour exams, midterms, anticipated second downs and, possibly, ' drop slips, on the way to , Thanksgiving vacation. It appears every line in Builders' calendars is filled with elaborate "things to do" listings from today . until the 24th. And the five days after the nearing, treasured Tues day? Most calendars have a large "sleep" notation, and alarm clocks will be set. for Thursday noon and chow down time, turkey style. The more vigorous, survival like, ''brace the ele-ments"-type individual plans to take out his education neuroses on migratory waterfowl and gamebirds with a blaring shot gun, if he can manage to beat the sunrise to the fields and streams. Easier To Get Up One hunter remarked on the strange' factor in his psyche which made five o'clock awakenings enjoyable if ducks were the objective, while 7:30 a.m. starts on eight o'clock classes were enternal misery. - , 'I can't figure out," he said, "why I can get up for the hunt so much easier than for classes. Some students have remarked that appointments and meetings even sleep will be hurting because of classroom demands. There seems to be an extremely heavy barrage of due reports, tests, book readings and the like which await completion. Library Vacationers Many vacations will be spent finishing these as signments. Nebraska libraries may be full of vacationing students during the Thanksgiving holiday. Probably high school seniors will gather at the win dows to gaze in wonder at the Universitas studentia, and ponder whether they should be studying in high school as their Instructors suggest. Hunting, sleeping, studying and the big feed all add up to vacation for Cornhuskers. The growing panic and flurry of pre-Thanksgiving education demands may erupt into a vacation jump of the gun, and Tuesday afternoon labs and night classes may be hurt next week. . Everyone seems fairly confident that they will make it through the "storm before the lull." But the thought of a Nov. 30, Monday morning return to culture and down slips is not exactly deemed Utopia. 'No Berries For Us,' Some Say Others Scoff At Contamination Cranberries, eh? Contami nated, huh? Sure, I'm gonna eat cran berrieswho's afraid of "con taminated cranberries" clear down here in Nebraska? Well, it seems that more than just a few have turned thumbs down on t h e whole idea vof having cranberries for meals since the circula tion of the stories about ship ments of the contaminated fruit. A quick survey of campus dormitories and organized houses indicated that many have cast a wary eye upon every cranberry that now comes into view. A spokesman of the Wom en's Residence Halls, when asked if the recent stories had any affect on the meal planning, said "I do not feel I am at liberty to say." A dietician at Selleck Quad said, "The cranberries wa have did not come from the contaminated area." In answer to the query con cerning possible planning of use of cranberries in future meals, she answered, "I am not sure." Acacia answered with an emphatic "no." It seems they have already had a clash with the "cranberry phobia." Cranberries were served re cently and there wasn't an exceptional demand for sec ondsor firsts. Chi Omega's cook said that she did not know of any plans to serve cranberries and she did not think that they would be served.

For details: See Page 3 Strict Diet Is Planned For Ten Ten University students will go on a strict diet of 7-Up, dry wafers, cornmeal, butter fat, pure sugar and amino acid solution next February. The students will have vol unteered for this college of agriculture project which is designed to determine which amino acids are used most by the body. The students will be paid for going on the diet and they will neither gain or lose weight. ' The foods and nutrition re search department will put out a notice for volunteers in February. Students in any college are eligible. They will eat three meals a day in the Food and Nutrition Build ing on Ag Campus. The items in the diet can be eaten either separately, or mixed together and forced down all at once, says Dot Christensen, who has been on the diet twice. GOP Women's Director To Be Honored At Tea Mrs. Williams Here Tomorrow Mrs. Clare Williams, as sistant chairman of the Re publican National Committee will be honored at a tea to be held in the Student Union Wednesday from 5-6 p.m. Mrs. Williams is also di rector of women's activities for the Republican party. In addition she is national committeewoman for Florida and a member of the execu tive committee of the national comittee. ' , Mrs. Williams, whose po litical interest dates back to her youth, has been acclaimed by party members as "a new vitality to the staid GOP." In regard to her view con cerning the 1960 election, Mrs. Williams contends that the women can "swing" the elec tion., There are about five million more women than men elig ible to vote and she believes, if the campaign is haitdled properly, women's votes will turn the tide for the Repub lican candidates.

For 1959 Military Ball Ticket sales for the Military Ball have been lagging slight ly behind last year, accord ing t'o George Bates, Navy member of the Ball tickets and tables committee. "I think this is because many people have not been aware that they can buy tick ets now as weU as the ROTC students," he said. The tickets are available on campus only at the Mili tary and Naval Science Build ing. This is a change from past years when tickets could be purchased at the Student Un ion as well. , Tables Limited The number of table reser vations for the Ball are limit ed and will be given out on a first come, first serve basis. These will be open to the public at 2 p.m. Thursday in by the Young Republicans for the purpose of promoting in terest among women mem bers of the party. Stanford System Praised Colbert Cites 30 Year Honor Program By Jacque Janecek j Editor"! note: This is the third in a series on a possible honars sytem for the entire University. So far, Col. V. E. flattie, commander of Army ROTC, and Army cadets themselves have comment ed on the honor! system they are us ing now. The Dean of Student Af fairs thinks an honors system would be successful at the University if if both faculty and students .would "make it work." Dean J. P. Colbert said, "If an honors system were insti tuted, faculty members would have to accept and rely on it. "And students would have to do their own policing," he added. Rough On, Cheater He explained that the hon ors system used at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif., has worked, successful ly for over 30 years. Students there are pretty roueh on the cheater, accord - ing.to Dean Colbert. He said the usual method to Anyont the lobby of .the M&N build ing. The number of tables avail able for reservation will be about 20 less than last year, according to Marvin West cott, chairman of the decora tions committee. The reason for this is the placing of ihe band on the dance floor itself rather than on the stage. In addition the committee is attempting to allow for more dancing room than has been available in recent years. No Television Spectator tickets also are on sale now. "All those wishing to view the Ball are reminded that it will not be televised," said Dick Basoco, Ball publicity chairman. "Only those who are going to dance are expected to be in formal attire. Suits are fine for those who are just coming to watch," he added. Tickets are on sale now at Perching Auditorium, Millers Tune Shop, D i e t z e Music House, Walt's Music Store, the Nebraska Book Store and the M&N Building. Tickets cost $3.50 a couple and $1 for spectators. in an unproctored examina tion is as follows: Student One sees Student Two looking mysteriously at his shirt cuff, eying his pants leg suspiciously or moving his eyes stealthily over his neighbor's exam. Student One starts tapping his pencil on the desk and fellow students Three, Four, Five etc., immediately give Student Two a dose of - the "evil eye." All Pencils Tap Usually that's all it takes, according to Dean Colbert, but sometimes the cheater continues. Then all the students in the classroom start tapping their pencils. And after the test, a com mittee made up of class members awaits the cheater. He 'is. later reported to a stu dent tribunal or honors com- f mittee, Dean Colbert said. i ,The usual punishment is expulsion. LINCOLN, NEBRASKA By Karen Long A silver spruce, nurtured for years until the proper show place could be found, will bo planted on the lawn near the Student Union and become the official University Christmas tree. The 19-foot tree is now located on Ag campus and will be moved, to 14th and 3 over Thanksgiving vacation. It will be a part of a tradi tion to be started this year. A tree-lighting ceremony will be held in connection with the Christmas Decorating Party which this year will be held Dec. 2. That night the Union Activi ties Committees and the Inter fraternity Council will pos sibly work together to decor ate the Crib, main lobby, lounge, cafeteria, games area and ballroom. In each area will be a lighted tree to "make the Christmas Spirit ring out from every corner of the student center," according to Allen Bennett, Union manager. Preceding the decorating, students will gather around the tree for the 'special light ing ceremony and singing of carols. Also to be turned on that night will be the terrace lights. Red and green will be substituted for the regular lights. Sound Speakers Going In New System Costs $13,000 When students return from Thanksgiving vacation, the Student Union will have new things for them to explore and try out. By that time the $13,000 sound system will be com plete to offer background mu sic, radio station KFAB, Mu zak, multiplex receiver, or a public inter-com which also can transfer music from the music room to various rooms. Controls at Desk The 126 speakers will be in stalled where there are now holes and wires hanging from the ceiling. Controls will be at the main desk in the lobby of the un ion. If a person needs to be found in one of the rooms the controller will be able to lo cate him in a few seconds. Each room has a separate switch so that they may have a choice of three types of mu sic from this system. Full Time Attendant In the m u s i c room $2,600 has been used to set up a sys tem which offers the service of a full time attendant to schedule the use of the equip ment and the types which will be used in the three rooms. More than $500 of new rec ords and tape have been ob tained. Two hundred records which range from jazz to clas sics already have arrived with nearly 100 on back order. Music from the room can be transferred to the main desk and in turn be piped into the desired rooms. The attendant also will take suggestions for new music de Continued On Page 4 "The students don't' think as much about the cheater fooling the instructor as they do about how he has cheated them," he commented. Dean Colbert declined to say whether he favored an honors plan for this Univer sity, but did say a study should be made of others where it had worked. He noted that the Student Council studied Student Tri bunal plans for more than two years before presenting It to the student body for ap proval two years ago. If the University were to adopt an honors system, the following procedure would probably be used, Dean Col bert said. Students would vote upon a proposal prepared by the Student Council. It would be reviewed by the Chancellor and Faculty The Board of Regents would vote. Tuesday, NU Help Indirectly Fights Communism The University is helping prevent the spread of Com munism in the Near East. According to the rector of the University of Ataturk in Eurzuram, Turkey, "The help we receive from the Univer sity of Nebraska is very im portant for the defense of our country and the whole free world." Sabahattin Ozbek also told University Regents Friday, "If we don't keep the people educated, someday we will lose out." Later, the rector of the two-year-old University told the Daily Nebraskan that the two most important defenses against Communism are good education and wealth. Right on Border He pointed out that h i s country which is right on the Russian border and the Uni versity, only 200 miles away from Communist lines, must have a high standard of liv ing. Communists woo and win many people with the promise of more food and money, he commented. "Some never stop to think what Commu nism is. If they are educated, they know," he added. The rector, whose job is equivalent to that of Chan cellor Clifford Hardin's, noted that adult education is a very important phase of his Uni versity. 600 Listen Professors hold Wednesday night conferences for usual crowds of 600. Subjects vary Trom litera ture and science to lectures on the best care for flu, Ozbek said. English, French and German are also taught. "The professors plan the Tribunal Will Hear Celebrates Student Tribunal will hear the biggest case in its two year history on Wednesday. Appearing en masse will be the 26 University students who were apprehended Nov. 2 at a beer party near Emer ald. They were celebrJ';ng Ne braska's win over Oklahoma on the day off from classes proclaimed by Chancellor Clifford Hardin. Dick .Kelley, chairman of the Tribunal, said Monday that the students would ap pear together in 419 Admin istration, unless some re quested an open hearing. According to the Tribunal charter, anyone who requests an open hearing two days before he is scheduled to appear may have one. Kelley said if some stu dents did request the open hearings by the Monday aft ernoon deadline that two sep arate hearings would be held f6r the entire party of 26. Lancaster County deputies took the n a m e s of the stu dents after coming upon them in a cornfield. Twenty wee minors. 'Twisted Cross' Tells of Nazis "The Twisted Cross," a dra matic story df Nazi Ger many, will be shown at 4:30 p.m. Thursday in the Little Auditorium of. the Nebraska Union. Acclaimed across the coun try as the most moving ac count of the rise and fall of Nazi Germany, this movie is an actual story taken from true pictoral 'documents. "The Twisted Cross" de picts Hitler's peasant be ginning as an apprentice painter and how as dictator of the German empire, the whole world was in fear of him. November 17, 1959 lectures on the level ot peo pie who 'ave never under stood the subjects before," according to the rector. Although Ataturk Univer sity has only 250 students this year, it is hoped enrollment will reach 10,000 after new hnilrlinps are comnleted. Classes are now held in tern' porary structures. Too Few "Grade school education Is compulsory, but high school is not. Even so, we have had two few universities," Ozbek said. Until two years ago there were only three in the coun try. He estimates there are a total of 40,000 University stu dents in Turkey now. "I had to turn down nearly 6,000 students this year from the 18 provinces our Univer sity serves," Ozbek told the Regents. There is no need to worry about Communist subversive groups in Turkey, Ozbek as sured. "Good Stronghold" He says Turks are main taining a "good stronghold" and respect laws outlawing the party. The penalty is 15 to 20 years in prison. He also noted that Com munist propaganda is p r o hibited by law. - Ozbek, who recently spent three weeks in Ann Arbor, Mich., at an International Co- , nnprarinn ' muiiiiiii!ii.i na tion seminar for administra tors of international univer sities, plans to spend two weeks in Nebraska. Four Turks While here he will meet in dividually with the 16 Turkish students enrolled at the Uni versity. He says four Turks are studying in California and Oregon, but he will not be able to visit them. This is Dr. Ozbek's third visit to the United States. Educated in Turkey, he taught at the University of Michigan in 1950 and 1951. His field is cold storage. He also did research at th University of California in 1957-58. Fine Job Dr. Ozbek said the six Ne braska professors at Attaturk University Lawrence K. Crowe, H. L. Weaver, M. D. Weldon, M. A. Alexander, Ot- tar Nervik and Homer K. Judge are doing a "fine job" and says he hopes for about four more. "But one of the best things the University of Nebraska could do for us now is to employ a Turkish professor here in Lincoln," Dr. Ozbek told Regents. He thinks Nebraskans need to know more about Turkish culture and language. "We need more than an ex change of money, we n o w need an exchange of ideas."
