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 needs? 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 Educator From Africa Tours State Christopher Bell, education al leader in Africa, toured the University Tuesday as part of a survey of the edu cational system of Nebraska schools. The Director of Education of Uganda and a British Pro tectorate in East Africa, Bell it a member of the British Protectorate in East Africa, BeH is a member of the British Overseas Education Service and has spent 25 years 'as a government ad ministrator of education in Africa. Bell was familiarized with the University's unique cor respondence study for high school students and its pio neering in the teaching of sci ence through television. The administrator ex plained that Nebraska bears a close resemblance to Ugan da in area and that be hoped to find procedures, policies and systems in education that could be implemented is the protectorate. Bell and Ms wife, mho are making the tour through a Carnegie grant, will visit schools in Syracuse, Phillips, Ansley, Halsey, Thedford and Mullen on Wednesday and Thursday.

"mer Administration Build j ing during "peace times" and will be moved to the new location during rush periods at the beginning of each semester and summer school. The book store in the Un nion will stock over 900 paperbacks, however. "Both locations wtH re main open and fully staffed until the Old Administra tion Building is torn down," Campbell pointed out. Anticipation 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. Downs Out For First Four Weeks Over One Thousand Students Get Slips Some 1,200 to 1,300 Univer sity students received down slips for their four week's classroom work, according to Dean Lewis Fowles of Stu dent Affairs. He noted that this number "is about average for this period." The 10 weeks scholastic re ports will probably cause more down slips to be sent out, Fowles predicted. Be said be made his approxima tion according to past rec ords. There are no actual records kept on the number and kind of down slips sent o ut, he said. "Let's face it; some in structors don't put out re ports at four weeks. They need 10 weeks to judge the student's work. Several in structors weren't able to give hour exams in time to file scholastic reports this time," he explained. Fowles said his Job does not end after the dowa slips have beea forwarded to the students. "We see a number of peo ple from now on to review their records, counsel, al vise and help them in any way we can. We see both the freshman student whose transition from high school is usually awkward and the up perclassman who has had scholastic trouble in the past," Fowles noted. THE Though summer is the tin?e for most building, this fall finds several changes being made on the city campus. Gradu ally, steadily, though we may not realize it, the University Is growing. DOWN comes Ike Episcopal University Chapel at 13th and R. (Right) Workmen have taken most of the roof down, removed the viding greater convenience to students, he explained. "The new paperbacks will cover a variety of subjects and were chosen as supple ments to the regular class room texts,". Campbell noted.

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.
