Nearly three-quarters of a
million dollars in research,
training and fellowship grants
were accepted Saturday morn
ing by the University Baard
of Regents.
The breakdown was $383,087
in research grants, $241,616 in
training grants and $111,000 in
. Among the training grants
was $159,800 from the National
Science Foundation for a co
operative college teacher de
velopement plan with state
colleges and universities. The
program will be directed by
Prof. N. H. Cromwell of the
department of chemistry.
The board also approved the
purchase of a $30,260 electron
microscope, e s s e n t i a 1 for
virus and bacterial research.
The new instrument will be
housed at the department of
microbiology at Lyman Hall
and financed by a U. S. Public
Health Service grant.
2nd Machine
This is the second such in
strument to be purchased by
the University. The first elec
tron microscope, obtained in
the late 40's is housed in the
department of plant pathology
at the College of Agriculture.
Dr. Carl Georgi, chairman
of the microbiology depart-
ment, who will be in charge
of the instrument, attended
t h e E 1 e c t r p n Microscope
School at Cornell University
in 1960.
An electron microscope will
magnify up to 30,000 diameters,
compared to 1,000 for a light
microscope. By enlarging pho
tographing prints of the spec
imen, the magnification can
be further increased by at
least ten fold.
An electron beam, similar
to a television picture "tube,
furnishes the source of light,
which passes through the
specimen and is scattered on
a flourescent plate where the
image is produced.
Dr. Georgi said research
with bacteria and viruses is
virtually impossible without
an electron microscope. He
said the instrument will be
used to study the internal
structure of bacteria and vi
ruses. In other action, the Board
accepted a grant of $10,500
from the state department of
aeronautics- to continue the
University's research in the
field of aerial application of
agricultural chemicals. The
project will be directed by
Rodney W. Bovey, instructor
in agronomy.

Les Elgart and six members of his band
are being held in the Lincoln city jail on an
open charge pending investigation of pos-'

other rooms at the Capital

A quantity of heroin was

Elgart and his band played
at the Homecoming Dance
which was held at Pershing
Auditorium Saturday night.
The police did not interrupt
the dance in order to avoid
creating a disturbance.
Some of the band members
were questioned upon their re
turn to the hotel rooms, said
Captain Sawdon.
The Les Elgart Band, which
is described as possessing the
"Sophisticated Swing," also
played at the 1959 Military
Ball and the 1961 Ak-Sar-Ben
Coronation Ball.

the County Attorney today for

Cards Fly;
$800 Lost
Students Toss Cards
To 'Let Off Steam'
Money ' flew around the
card section Saturday at
students "let off steam" by
tossing the card sets into the
air after the halftime show.
Roy Cook, president of
Gamma Lambda, honorary
band fraternity and designer
of the card section, said that
a rough estimate of the cards
lost is 200 at $4 a set. If the
whole section had been lost,
the cost would have run
about $3,000.
Cook said that it started
when the students started
throwing the instruction
sheets which had been given
to them. Then one person
started throwing his cards
and it spread through the
stands. Cook- termed it a
"mob action."
The Corn Cobs report that
they know which section
started throwing the cards.'
Cook said that they were
able to pin-point it because
they took moving pictures of
the show. ,
No action has been taken
yet; Gamma Lambda will
decide upon it at their Tues
day meeting. Cook said that
the cost of replacing the
cards will probably be taken
out of the $50 deposits made
by the organized houses who
sit m the card section.
The exact account of the
number of cards lost will be
given at the end of the week
when the Corn Cobs finish
the count. Many of the card
sets were torn up and many
were taken home os souvenirs.
Cook reported that there
will be a card section for the
game which falls on the Sat
urday of Thanksgiving vaca
tion and that the houses in
the section are required to
fill that space. The card sec
tion may be cut down in size
due to the lack of cards.
Cook added that on Nov. 15,
movies of all the card shows
will be shown in the Pan
American Room at 7 p.m.
All students are invited to at
