This warm interior effect will be achieved through the honey-colored Italian trav ertine and the woven-grass covered walls of the galler ies, which will be located on the corner of 11th and R Streets.

The ceramic selections for display were made by Allen Wardwell, curator of the de partment of primitive art at the Art Institute of Chicago. Mr. Wardwell will speak at the Union Auditorium Tues day at 4 p.m. on "The Cer amic Art of Peru." In addition, The University Art Gallery, located on the second floor of Morrill Hall, is featuring a collection of paintings entitled, Latin America: New Departures. The collection, which; in cludes the "works of -eleven Latin American artists, may be viewed daily from 2-5 p.m. basement, the galleries and the administrative offices. Sculpture Hall The Gallery will open im mediately into a spacious, two story lobby, Sculpture Hall. Because of its great Mm 1 V Architects drawing of the height, no paintings will be hung in the Hall. The Hall will be construct ed with glass panels on the east and west of the lobby. Through these windows the old and the new campus may be seen. Two small galleries will be located on the first floor. These galleries will contain the. temporary art exhibits. The temporary exhibits will not consist of any in dividual private showings. The exhibits will be made up of student shows or showings arranged by t h e University. These small galleries, like all the galeries in the build ing, will have a tweedy, black and white carpet and the woven-grass wall cov ering.

The move was not authoritarian, but merely relaxed. His dark eyes and thick black hair, graying a bit at the temples, bore some re semblance to Tyrone Power as did his 6 foot, 175 lb. stature. But his actions did not bear the force his phy sique implied. His manner was slow and soft. The phone rang. Swiveling around 180 de grees to the long narrow table along the wall behind his desk, he flipped a switch and greeted his caller with warm familiarity. A brief discussion; "yes, I think you're right on this but I don't think we're quite ready to go ahead;" a pro file smile showing very white teeth which normally hold a smoking pipe; a deep, unforced "ha-ha" laugh. He hung up the receiver. Lincoln, Nebraska NU Psychology Professor To Journey To Denmark A University of Nebraska professor of psychology, Dr. Marshall R. Jones, will re port to the International Con gress of Applied Psychology in Copenhagen on research which began 10 years ago with the testing of 500 volunteer residents of Syracuse, Neb. In studying the results, of the Rorschach (personality) examinations, Dr. Jones and his colleagues were espe cially interested to note that evauation of one phse ot tne scoring failed to coincide with clinical observations and the oretical probabilities.

Galleries Nine larger galleries will n Sheldon Art Galleries be located on the second floor balconies. Six of these galleries will exhibit the permanent art collections. These collections, part of which were purchased through the years by the Board of Regents, and also those purchased by the Ne braska Art Association will be partially displayed and partially stored for periods of three months. The paint ings will then be rotated. A beautifully furnished auditorium will be located on the first floor adjacent to Sculpture Hall. The room will be covered with Nogahyde, a synthetic sub stitute for leather, of a deep natural leather tone. This auditorium will be used for visiting lecturers, art crit iques, small concerts and chamber music. It will not V CLIFFORD M.

His report on the research, including use of the new scale in scoring tests given to a number of normal and patho logical groups, was accepted by the international congress for presentation on its 1961 program. The congress, Aug ust 13 to 19, will be attended by psychologists from all over the world. Mrs. Jones and their son, Scott, 17, will accompany Dr. Jones to Copenhagen.

Karen Long, newly named member of the Peace Corps, will discuss the Corps. be made available to theat rical shows. The Galleries will also have a special room for the meetings of the Nebraska Art Association. The room was one of the stipulations made in the will left by Frances Sheldon. Miss Shel don was one of the original founders of the Association and wanted them to have a permanent home, Geske said. The funds for the build ing w e r e donated by Fran ces and Bromley Sheldon to further the cultural beauty of the campus. The funds were given with another stipulation. There were to be no classrooms in the Galleries. It could be used only for art displays. According to Leonard Meyers, head of the con struction and planning, the work on the building has been moving on schedule. Completion The contract data for completion of the building was set at October, 1962. However, even if the galler ies are finished then, Geske said the building will not "be opened to the public until April of 1963. The intervening six months will be necessary for moving the paintings and sculptures from the old galleries into the Sheldon Art Gallery. The art objects in the present galleries will comfortably fill the new museum, Geske said. ( . ' t .-'.' -V..; Summer Nebraskan Inspector To Discuss Education Miss Ruth Foster, Her Maj esty's inspector of schools in England, will be on the Uni versity campus Thursday and Friday giving a series of talks and lecturing at an all Summer Sessions convoca tion at 11 a.m. Friday in Love Library auditorium. An international authority on physical education for women and girls on program ming of physical education at the elementary level, Miss Foster is in this country to address the International Women's Congress in Wash ington, D.C. in early August. In her convocation talk, she will discuss "Current Trends in Education in Britain." Her other three campus appear ances have been arranged primarily for the benefit of teachers.

Friday, 2 p.m., Grant Me morial studio, "Principles of Movement." Group Discusses Educational TV Representatives from com munity school, Parent Teach er Associations and the Ne braska Council for Education al Television met last week to discuss "Parlons Francais," a French language series to be offered on KUON-TV and KETV in Omaha. The representatives who at tended the meeting are con sidering the use of the series in their own schools and will make a decision after a study of texts and materials to be used in the course. In a few moments the phone rang again. After a brief discussion, "Say what do you think about that fellow I was talk ing to you about? I've checked his grades and think we can recommend him." The two phone calls show two chief characteristics of he 45 year-old man: a hum ble yet well-informed au thority in his job. Chancellor The man is Dr. Clifford M. Hardin M. for Mor ris), Chancellor of the Uni versity of Nebraska. As Chancellor of the Uni versity, Hardin says his duties are to act as the "executive officer of the University and carry out policies of the Board of Re gents." "The Chancellor must be responsible to the Board for the academic and physical (monetary) activities. He must also have a knowledge of student oriented pro grams as well. His office is the one place where all all these areas are coor dinated," Dr. Hardin said. And it is in this office, or State P.T.A. Clinic Hosts 150 Educators Parents, teachers, county superintendents, and college professors met yesterday at the clinic for Parents and Teachers to discuss the gen eral theme of "Time For Action." The clinic, an annual meet ing sponsored jointly by Teacher's College and the Ne braska Congress of Parents and Teachers, opened with a luncheon yesterday noon in the Pan-American Room of the Student Union. About 150 were present at the luncheon to hear Dr. Galen Saylor, chairman of the department of Secondary Ed ucation, speak on the topic, "Who Speaks for Children in Today ' World." Saylor is a veteran P. T. A. worker. He has served as President of the Nebraska Congress of Parents and Teachers, as treasurer of the national congress, and was re c e n 1 1 y appointed National Chairman For Exceptional Children. In his talk, Saylor pointed Superintendents Hold Seminar County school superinten dents and rural supervisors are meeting on the campus this week and next week to receive instruction and assis tance in operation of the coun ty superintendent's office. University faculty and per sonnel from the state depart ment of education will be con ducting the seminar for the 20 superintendents and super visors. The seminar began yester day so that the supervisors could attend the clinic for par ents and teachers held in Love Library auditorium.

Although Breckenridge and Pittenger act as spe cialists or trouble shooters, it is Dr. Hardin who is ul timately responsible for all the workings of the Univer sity, its staff, its faculty and its students. Chancellor Hardin genu inely enjoys the work he does, and his optimism and enthusiasm are very c o n tagious, according to Dean Breckenridge. Pit tenger said "getting the job done" seems to be th Chancellor's primary con cern. And since he cam her seven years ago, Hardin has done just that.

Following the luncheon the group met at 2 p.m. in Love Library Auditorium. Here Dr. O. W.
