Builders Studies
Ag Transportation
The Ag-city transportation
situation is in the process of
being investigated by Univer
sity Builders.
Before any action is
taken to the Student Council
or the Administration, the
. group is sending out question
naires to 911 Ag college stu
dents. The questionnaires include
the following questions.
1. Would yon patronize an
efficient transporation system
between the campuses?
2. Do you drive a car be
tween campuses now?
3. Would you use a trans
portation system between
campuses even though you
have a car?
Would you use it:
a. All the time or,
b. only in bad weather?
4 Do you feel the present
system is adequate for your
5. Which.' hours would you
use such a system according
to your schedule this semes
ter? C. Other comments.
"Everyone on Ag campus
must co-operate if this is to
be a valid reporrt," said Car
yl Craven, Ag publicity chair
man. The information is due in
the Ag Student Unioa by No
vember 17.
The transportation problem
between campuses has in
creased during the past year
for several reasons. One of
them is that the city bus lines

"Both locations wtH re

Campbell pointed out.
The new location across
from the Student Union
barber shop was chosen in
anticipation of this razing
and for the purpose of pro-
last spring cut down on the
frequency of the buses going
to and from campuses.
Another factor is the open
ing of a wing of Burr Hall
this year to house girls, who
are not necessarily Ag ma
jors and therefore have aD
their classes on city campus.
The Builders feel that ac
tion needs to be taken to as
sist students in the problems
which affect their study and
activity schedules, Miss Cra
ven said.
After the survey is complete
the committee will study the
results and make suggestions
for improvement or put it
before another group for
study or action.

Magee Joins
Hall of Fame
The Nebraska Hall of Ag
ricultural Achievement will
honor Wayland W. Magee for
his outstanding contributions
to agriculture.
Magee, a longtime Ben
nington farmer, will be hon
ored at a banquet to be held
in the Student Union Nov. 17.
Dr. A. W. Epp, Hall of
Fame secretary, said Magee
is the 48th person to be hon
ored by the group since it was
organized in 1916.
Epp said that Magee was
chosen for the honor because
he has been a progressive
farmer and community lead
er throughout his life. He
also had an active part in or
ganizing many farm organi
zations in eastern Nebraska,
Epp said.
The honoree served as ag
ricultural representative oa
the Federal Reserve Board
ia Washington, D.C., under
President Herbert Hoover.
He is also a lawyer, geologist
and world traveler, Epp said.
He has a unique bobby of
exploring for uranium depos
its and has supplied many
schools and colleges with
specimens, Epp noted.
Reservations for the dinner
must be made with Dr. Epp
at the College of Agriculture.
Nearly all the fixtures
have been installed, Camp
bell said. All that needs to
be done is to rearrange
things, he added.
"The University Book
store is the students' store
and we are always open
for suggestions," Camp
bell said.
