Units Start Operating
In Nebraska Hall
Technicians began yester
day on the assembling of a
medium-sized digital comput
er, recently bought by the
University. It will be located
in Nebraska Hall.
"The new units will be in
operating condition within a
month," said Dr. John Chris
topher, director of the newly
organized Computer Center.
Purchase of the $180,000
computer was authorized by
the Board of Regents In Janu
ary and is contingent upon a
$95,000 grant from the Na
tional Science Foundation. .
This equipment can be used
to solve complex statistical
and mathematical problems
as well as simple ones with
high speed and accuracy,
Christopher explained.
An informal coding and
programming course will be
given to all researchers and
professors who will eventual
ly make use of the machine.
Some of the uses of the
machine include the mean
ingful interpretation of crop
reactions to weather, meas
urements of beef and swine
breeding programs, soil test
programs, analysis of farm
income and expenses, genet
ics and cosmic ray work.
The Center will also be
available for other institu
tions desiring to conduct re
search, Christopher said.
All researchers and pro
fessors at the University will
do their own programing and
when the Center begins oper
ation in Nebraska Hall, a
staff consisting of the direc
tor, a graduate student, a
technician and a secretary

Communist Films
Start New Series
"The Face of RedChina"
and "Russia," will headline
the initial showing of the new
documentary film series at
the Student Union.
The movies shown will cov
er every topic, from beatniks
to World War II.
There will also be several
experimental art films in
cluding "Blood and Fire,"
which has been rated among
the best art films made.
Shows will be on the first
Thursday of each month at
4:30 p.m. The first showing
is Thursday Oct. 6. No admis

"'This results in some
price variation, but because
general rules of the thumb
are followed and the items
are sold as cheap as pos

Mrs. Weaver noted.

On Saturday the cannon
was shot from the southeast
corner of the stadium toward
the northwest corner. Some
people were annoyed and the
press box was said to have
been shaken.
"The weapon may continue
to be used if it is done in
accordance with the stipula

a good idea for spirit and fun

Nicolai said that the high
