Projects Aid Some of the projects have made a substantial increase in investigation of Nebras ka's tax structure, others have been an aid to small businessmen through re search, increased activity of the Bureau of Business Fire Code Prompts Nil Action By Janet Sack "Fire hazards in University buildings are being repaired as rapidly as possible," ac cording to Joseph Davis, State Fire Marshall. In August of 1960, Deputy Assistant State Fire Marshall G. E. Eckstrand inspected the buildings on the City and Ag campuses after a new state fire code was intro duced. Four buildings were condemned and eight campus structures received approval. In addition 56 buildings were cited as needing addi tional fire improvements. Twenty-five needed complete fire coverage with automatic warning systems in every room and hall, and 26 needed partial detection systems isk "high hazard" areas and ad ditional exits, fire escapes, electrical connections and better storage facilities for inflammable liquids. Cost of the repairs would total $1.6 million, Eckstrand estimated, or approximately $185 per student. At the time, of last year's inspection, Eckstrand stated that the high cost was due to the University's refusal to carry out recommended re pairs after an inspection made in 1952. Carl Donaldson, University business manager, said at that time that the University had been "nibbling away" at the project by replacing buildings deemed fire hazards with new buildings such as Lyman Hall. Last year in the Univer sity's proposed budget sent before the state legislature, it was recommended that $30,000 for city, $20,000 for Ag and $75,000 . for the medical college in Omaha be ear marked for "compliance with the state fire code," under "high priority" items. The four condemned struc tures were old Nebraska Hall which now has been torn down, the old Meat Lab, the old Biochemistry building and the old poultry headquarters, all of which are located on the Ag. campus. The three buildings on Ag campus are still being used temporarily for storage A 41 1 1 space, according to inanes Fowler, University director of division of building and grounds. The Music Building and Avery Laboratory are being repaired now, said Fowler. A new fire escape is being con structed on the Music Build ing and central fire extin guishing equipment is being installed in Avery Lab. "There has been quite a bit of revamping done in nearly all the buildings," Fowler said. "Several fire escapes have been made and new openings in some of the build ings have been made." Hruska to Speak Senator Roman R. Hruska will speak today in room 235 of the Union at 4:30 p.m. A coffee hour will fol low the assembly.

The Mortar Board 'Activities NIP Freshmen women will have a chance to become acquaint ed with activities on the Uni versity campus at "Activities NU," an orientation meeting sponsored by Mortar Board Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Student Union ballroom. The program has been de signed to give freshmen an overall picture of campus ac tivities rather than informa tion about individual organi zations which they can obtain at the AWS Activity Mart next week. Five different types of ac tivities will be discussed by members of Mortar Board and women leaders in organi zations in the general fields. The areas which will be cov ered include communications, student government, campus community, community serv ice and entertainment. Mortar Board president Nancy Ted erman will discuss the value of activities, and Kathy Voll- Program Council Posts Available Applications are available for juniors and seniors who are interested in interview ing for a position on the city Student Union program coun cil.

Von Hendy By Tom Kotouc "We saw thera hoist Shepard's capsule Liberty Bell I, on the deck of the Champ lain as Shepard came crawling out of the heliocopter that had taken him from his capsule at sea," Von Hendy said. These were the words of Lt. Richard Von Hendy, Navy ROTC instructor and commander of one of the S-2-F multimotor anti-submarine planes assigned to the USS Lake Champlain anti-aircraft carrier for Commander Shepard's flight into space. This is his story. The Lake Champlain was the recovery , vessel for the historic flight. It wasn't long after the Russians' orbital flight and this was the first attempt by the U.S. to put a man into space, even if it was a ballistic shot. Three Days The shot had already been held up three days because of weather when we were told it had been postponed a couple more hours the day of the flight. Everyone aboard was restless and tense. Normally we would have been training in anti-submarine maneuvers those three days that we waited. Instead we did noth ing, for" the equipm"".! had to be kept always ready in case uie shot would come. The S-2-F airplane, which was normally used to hunt for subs and to do search and rescue work, was to cover the area where the shot was to land in case of misfire. Our duty wasn't really too much different than ordinary, except that we might have lakes in Nebraska and an other study exploring meth ods of counting numbers of business firms by type, size and location in the state.

Union Director Represents Area Allen Bennett, director of the University Student Union, has been appointed assistant regional representative for Region 8 of the Association of College Unions. As assistant representative, Bennett will co-ordinate union work in Nebraska colleges and universities with that of other unions in Region 8, which includes Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. He will also assist schools that wish to develop a union build ing and program. Bennett's appointment was announced by Loren Kottner of Kansas State University, regional director. Sees Historic Flight instead of one from a downed plane. When the blast-off finally came, how ever, those 16 minutes that Shepard was in the air were the fastest 16 minutes in my life. Progress We followed his progress on radio and heard him talking. When he opened up the hatch there in space, with all the strain he was under, and said, "What a beauti ful sight," you knew he was quite an offi cer. The S-2-F has two overhead escape hatches. Before I had realized it, I had crawled out of one and was standing on top of my aircraft with my helmet and glasses still on. When we saw the chute blossoming out about a mile up ahead of the carrier with us heading right for it, a cheer went up. You know how the Marine heliocopter aboard for the occasion picked up Shep ard and his capsule from the sea and brought it back to the carrier. "Soon after the capsule had hit the wa ter, it was a joke aboard the Champlain that Shepherd's first words after crawling out has been' "Has anyone got a banana?" When I watched the Commander later on a TV conference, I was extremely im pressed with the intelligence and conduct of this Navy astronaut, in spite of the tension. "Yes," Lt. Handy concluded, "the ex perience was well worth the three extra days we had to stay at sea." firms employing 25 to 200 persons. Raymond with Clifford Hicks A study of prob lems in the sale of an in terest in a small business proprietorship influenced by the federal income tax laws. Drs. Peterson and Mc Connell A study to help show ways small Nebraska manufacturers can diversi fy. The study in an inves tigation and analysis of re search activity, product dif striction of plant facilities which would hamper the joint project," Jones said. "Detailed discussions have been delayed until there is something more definite to work with," he said, "but there are possibilities for bas ic cooperation in several areas." These include: use of facil ities and equipment provided by the Hallam plant; use of radioactive sources otherwise not available to the Univer sity and, contact with person nel who have a broader back ground in specific applica tions of atomic energy. Jones said, "We will be glad to work with the University, but the University will be re sponsible for developing pro jects which can be used." Cooperation "This cooperation will help to hold University graduates with highly technical educa tion who wish to remain in Nebraska," Jones said. Jones, himself a native Ne braskan, returned in 1954 to work on the nuclear power project after working in the weapons division of the Atom ic Energy Commission, in Los Alamos, New Mexico. Jones said the cooperation would also be of "value to the student by providing a wider background of experience, and to individual organizations by providing trained University personnel with whom they can discuss their problems. Conference One of the first steps in this direction is a conference on applications of atomic en ergy which will be held next Monday and Tuesday at the Nebraska Center for Contin uing Education. Topics under discussion will include use of atomic energy in food processing, medicine, public power, science and in dustry. The conference was in stigated at the urging of Gov. Frank Morrison and is spon sored by the University Col lege of Engineering and the U.S. Atomic Energy Commis sion. Committee Members of a University committee to coordinate with the nuclear power program include: chairman Merk Hob son, dean of the College of Engineering and Architec ture; Elvin Frolik, dean of agriculture; Henry Holtz claw, professor of chemistry; Roy Holly, dean of the Gradu ate College; Herbert Jacobi; Edgar Pearlstein, associate to spot and rescue a man from outer space Service ferentiation and produce di versification by small man ufacturers in the state. Dr. Schmidt Continued studies in all areas of tax ation in Nebraska. Dr. Miller said while fu ture study in the direct area of attracting industry to Nebraska is in the talk ing and discussion stage, the re-awakening of interest in , the courting of industry on the part of Nebraskans has always been in the minds of the staff members.
