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
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.

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.

Ticket Sales Lagging .
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
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 - 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
"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.

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

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

"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.
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
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

Ozbek said. English, French
and German are also taught.

Dick .Kelley, chairman of
the Tribunal, said Monday
that the students would ap

quested an open hearing.
According to the Tribunal
charter, anyone who requests
an open hearing two days

Kelley said if some stu

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
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
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

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."
