UNIVERSITY OF NEBK, LIBRARY Himheis A ARCHIVES, J rWl I Around lonignt Rally time is here agaftrs the first football game of the season rapidly approaches. A in the past the rally will start at the Carillon Bell Tower at 6:45 p.m., moving towards and then down 16th Street, turning west on "R" Street and finally ending up at the Student Union. Leading the students will be the Cornhusker Yell Squad captained by Gary McClanahan, 1961 Yell King. McClanahan has urged every student that can attend to do so and make the rally an all-University affair. Backing up the Yell Squad will be the Cornhusker marching band with their new double-time step. A few new rules are in force, among 'them a rule that no placards or signs can be carried by organized groups. This will supposedly limit some of the roughness that has been characteristic of several past rallies. Activities at the Student Union on Saturday will in clude the touchdown buffet in the Pan-American room before the game and a coffee hour immediately following the game until 5:00 p.m. All students, parents, and mem bers of the faculty are invited to attend. Edelmanri Resigns IFC Faculty Advisor Position By Bob Nye Don Ferguson, president of the IFC, announced the res ignation of Dr. Alex T. Edel- mann as faculty advisor for the organization. Dr. Edelmann stated in his letter to the IFC that he had recently been given additional advising duties within the political science department that require considerable time. Dr. Edelmann is also work ing on a research project on the problem of land reform as a hinderance to the develop ment of democracy in Latin America, and Is finishing a text on Latin American gov ernment and politics. His letter of resignation fur ther stated, "... I especially Nebraska Will Host Scientists The University of Nebras ka may host the 1965 con gress of one of the largest assemblies of world-leading scientists, Dr. C. Bertrand Schultz announced today. This announcement was made on Dr. Schultz's return from the 1961 Congress of In ternational Association on Quaternary Research, held in Warsaw, Poland. The 1965 congress, tentative ly planned for the Nebraska Center for Continuing JKduca tion. will be composed of leading paleontologists, an thropolo gilts, geographers, meteorologists and geophysi- cists from all over the world. According to Dr. Schultz, the choice was made because, "We have some of the best material of this age in the world, including Russia where some living evidence of the ice age still persists. Many of the European and Asian scientists as well as Ameri c a n authorities expressed great satisfaction with the choice of Nebraska." In addition to scientific evidence of the ice age that has been gathered by the Uni versity for many years, Ne braska's central location in the United States supported the choice. A final factor was the new Nebraska Center for Continuing Education. Dr. Schultz, director of the University of Nebraska State Museum, was chosen as Great Plains delegate by the Na tional Academy of Sciences and the National Research Council. He also represented the American Society of Vertebrate Paleontology at the 1961 congress In Poland which was attended by 500 authorities from 38 countries. Gallery Receives Valuable Art Gift The University Art Gal leries have been selected as one of a group of American art museums to receive a gift of over $5,000 in works of contemporary American ar tists. The offer is made through the agency of the American Federation of Arts, which is acting as administrator for an anonymous donor. Small museums in the Unit ed States, selected by the donor, may choose for their collections at least two works of art costing up to $5,000. These works are paid for by the donor, through the Fed eration. Works selected may be of any medium, but it is stipu lated that they may be by young American artists who have not otherwise received national recognition through museum purchases, exhibi tions and awards. The select ed works will remain in the collection of the donor for one year and will then be turned over to the museum recipient to Rally regret leaving ... . it would surely help the IFC, possibly some other campus organiza tions too, if faculty time spent with them could be recog nized as service to the Uni versity as much as is activ ity within a department." In other IFC business it was announced that the asses ment for each pledge within a house will be $7. Two dol lars will go to the IFC as the pledging fee and $5 will be to supplement the bill for hous ing at Selleck. The individual houses were asked to submit names in order to pick a slate for the recent vacancy of a Student Council representative from Teachers College. Don Fergueson announced that the Dr. C. B. Schultz Community Service Award will be given to the house which has the best record on community service during the current school year. This special trophy is given in honor of Dr. Schultz's twelve years of dedicated service to the IFC as an advisor. Dr. Schultz resigned last spring. Peace Corpsman To Visit Campus Miss Karen Long, a recent summer-graduate of the Uni versity and the first Nebras kan chosen for the Peace Corp, will return to. the cam pus for the weekend before leaving for her Peace Corp assignment in the Philippines. Miss Long will be guest of honor at an open house held at the Alpha Xi Delta house after the football game. Stu dents interested in meeting and visiting with her are in vited to attend. While a student at the Uni versity, Miss Long was ac tive in YWCA, the Daily Ne braskan, Theta Sigma Phi women's journalism honorary and in her social sorority, Al pha Xi Delta.

Acting as Soviet guinea pigs for testing Ground Con trol Approach equipment at a Russian airport was their first experience as they en tered the Soviet Union. Barker explained that the Russians don't give any weather forecasts until planes enter the Soviet ter ritory. The night they flew in to Moscow, the city was receiving its first snow fall of the season and they had to land by Ground Control Approach (GCA). "Since the airport was' only a year old, they hadn't had a chance, to previously test their GCA equipment," said Barker. Their guide, who met them at the airport was "good looking" compared to the way the other Soviet women dressed and looked, he said. She spoke perfect English and understood not only the words, but also any satirical or sarcastic tone implied. the Vol. 75, No. 4 ibrary Offers New Services By Janet Sack Service to the students is the underlying factor which brought about the. changes in Love Memorial Library over the summer, according to Kichara Farley, associate di rector of the library. Major changes include mov ing the science reading room from second floor to first, where the old coke and smoke room used to be. There is no longer a reserve desk on third . I - . Y I ' ft' ? Yr. - lilMMilWIW ,J ;.fl SO WE MEET AGAIN Jazz artist George Shearing chats with Nora Chandler, a visitor from Shearing's native land of England. Miss Chandler had previously met Shearing in San Francisco soon after his arrival in America. Shearing appeared at the Student Union three times during his visit at NU. An informal interview was held in the Crib during the afternoon before he and his quintet presented two evening concerts to crowds totaling nearly 1500 fans. European Study Programs Now Open for Application The application period for three spring semester under graduate European study pro grams offered by the Insti tute of European Studies is now open. Sophomores and juniors who meet the minimum standards for each of the programs may apply until Dec. 15. The three programs are located in Vien na, Freiburg (West Germany) and Paris. Selections are made on the basis of past records of aca demic accomplishments and recommendations from two faculty members familiar mit a limit of two candi dates. Tryouts for Kosmet Klub fall show skits will be held Sunday, Oct. 1, according to Marsh Kurh, Fall Show chairman. Seven houses have submitted skits to date. The guide informed them they could take pictures anywhere in the Soviet Un ion, but, Barker added with a smile, this was also a "lie" because they weren't allowed to take pictures of airports, railroads, or bridges. . Good Food Barker happily reported that the food was much bet ter than they had expected although it still didn't reach American standards. The menu seemed to consist of soup, carrots, cabbage, etc, with a definite lack of eggs, he said, and vodka and champagne, ordered in grams, was quite expensive. Barker didn't see any restaurants as we know them except in hotels. They served three meals a day but had no choice of menu. , The impression Barker received of Moscow was that it was a dalL drab, and dirty city. This, he explained could be because they use coal for heat. It appeared like a country fifty years behind and trying to catch up, according to Barker. Even brand new buildings had old style architecture, he said. The average wage is about S0 a month and men's Sf floor, but rather a central re serve room in the west wing on first floor. The reserve room is set up rather like a bookstore, Far ley said. The same procedures will be used to checu out tne books, but the books are now on the shelves for students to find. Any reserve book may be used in the central reserve room for as long as tne stu dent desires. A two hour limit, the same with the applicant's scholar ship. The program offers a wide range of liberal arts courses to fulfill the needs of U. S undergraduates studying in Europe. " Students need not be pro ficient in a foreign language to. study in Vienna and Paris programs because classes there are taught in English. Only juniors may enroll in the Freiburg program and com petence in the German lan guage is required. The Paris students visit Italy, Spain, England, France, Belgium and Switzerland on on. two study trips. Freiburg students will tour Germany, Switzerland and Italy on two field-study trips. All spring semester stu dents wUl sail from New York in February and return to the U.S. in July.

He de scribed them as style double-breasted suits with bad cut and material. Shoes, with heavy leather and no color, start at $15. Some of the women in the tour went to a fashion show and re ported the styles were "fair." Barker noted there was little use of cosmetics, the women wore baggy cloth ing, and there was little feminine charm. Children Wanted Gum Barker said that one of the more embarrassing parts of the trip was the little kids asking in English for gum or other questions .and he couldn't answer in 'Russian. The "kids love gum" and will trade many thing for it, he said. One member of the tour traded gum for a secret service badge. , Barker is now exchanging jazz records with some stu dents he met in Leniii&rad. He also noticed that the band in the hotel played American tunes, such as "Easter Parade." Moscow has one depart ment store, which Barker described as entirely differ ent from ours, that consists of arcades with separate ir liJ MM The Nebraskan as last year, will be main' tained for all books leaving tne room. For further convenience, three typewriters on individ ual tables have been placed in the reserve room for stu dent use. Turnstiles, used, as guides, have been installed at the en trance of the reserve room. Special hours for using the room are from 7:50 a.m. to 4:50 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 8:50 p.m. , Quite a few changes can be noted on third floor of the library. In the magazine room all the current issues have been taken out of the boxes and placed on the shelves This plus a rearrangement of the tables makes the room seem less like a morgue. Paul Spence, social studies director, said that microfilm readers and microfilm for subjects in the social s c i- Council Position Available Letters of application for a Teacher's College represent ative on Student Council are being accepted now to fill the existing vacancy, according to Al Plummer, Student Coun cil nominating chairman.

The store also stressed quantity in stead of quality. Barker picked out a fur-lined hat he wanted to buy for $10, but in the process of pur chasing it he finally ended up with one "four sizes too big." Barker toured a Russian Orthodox monastery outside of Moscow. Most of the peo ple he saw were at least 60 years old. Their guide ex plained that the continua tion of the churches was mostly to "humor the old folks." Barker said he noted no outward sign of religion. Moscow University The University of Mos cow was "impressive" ac cording to Ross. The main building has 22,000 rooms and is 28 stories high. There are seven schools on the campus. The American stu dent described the students as "just like other stu dents." Students attend school ten years before they enter college after passing exams, he said. Activities, such as plays, choral groups, and gyms, are also evident. The dorm itories are apartment houses and each student has his own room and window. An extra feature Barker ences are now located in the west wing where the old docu ments room used to be. Bound volumes of the older magazines are also in the west wing. Through the shift ing of tables the study areas are somewhat smaller and are designed to decrease the noise and activity of other students. On second floor humanities has expanded to include the old science reading room. Hu manities now has microfilm Morrison Addresses Law Group Luncheon Gov. Frank Morrison chal lenged the 150 members and guests of Phi Delta Phi law fraternity at their bi-monthly meeting Thursday noon to stand and express their opin ions on public needs regard less of the opposition they will face. "Although a lawyer cannot neglect his first civil obliga tion to his profession," Mor rison emphasized, "he can not ignore that his responsi bility to politics and govern metn is greater that that of any other profession." "Our tendency not to dis agree because we might lose business or favor creates a uniformity of thought and ac tion," the Governor said, "and this uniformity really con formityis the greatest dan ger today to our democratic process, for democracy ad vances through conflict." "We cannot criticize simp ly because we disagree with another, however," he said. "If we criticize our oppon ent's proposal for advancing, we should have the courage to submit an alternate propos al and then to defend it as better than our opponents. Morrison will appear before another campus group, Young Democrats, next Thursday at 8 p.m. in 233 Student Union.

The two faculty judges are Professors John Paustian and Edmund Belsheim. The Tribunal will meet to hear cases each week on Thursdays at 5 p.m. if the number of cases warrant it in the Administration build ing. discovered was the "heated towel rack" in the rooms. Ross described the sub ways as "gorgeous." They are decorated inside with marble and chandliers. The trains are clean and air conditioned. Despite the over-all appearance, the fin ish work was termed rather "sloopy." Ross had the experience of flying in a TU-104 Rus sian jet. "It had two en gines compared to our four. The pressurization wasn't as good as ours and the in terior was drab and grey," Barker said. Could Hear Air He also said he could hear the air going by out side." The soft-drink machines, Barker found, are like ours, except in one respect. They .have only one glass in them, no paper cups, but the glass will be rinsed if more mon ey is put into the machine. This "just Juck" tourist believes everybody should visit the Soviet Union be cause they would appreci ate the United States more. Despite the fact that he thinks Russia has nothing for the tourist to do, except to satisfy his curiousity, Ross would "like to go back someday." .

NU Parking Ticket Costs Total $12,672 Captain Eugene Masters, head of the University police, disclosed that the police col lected $12,672 in parking fines last year. The fines were used as part payment on the paving of the north Selleck parking lot. It was announced that Elton Geary has joined the police force for the coming year bringing the size of the force to 14 men. Captain Masters also stated that many of the parking reg ulations have been clarified. The clarifications are: Parking on the green lines is not to exceed 15 minutes; parikng in the service drives is only for the purpose of loading or unloading; backing into stalls on the metered lots or the south Selleck lot will be a violation. The reason that backing into a stall is a violation is the possibility of damaging the meters and the shrub bery. Captain Masters also an nounced that beginning Mon day tickets will be given for all violations. P r e v i o usly, warning tickets have been is sued for area and meter vio lations.
