Cozad Offers to Host
First Tax Workshop
By Nancy Whitford
Cozad will probably be a site for a follow
up program on state tax systems.
The initial 12-15 workshops will be to
train leaders in various counties. These lead
ers, in turn, will work with individual towns,
such as Cozad, which wish to be informed on
the subiect. said Everett Peterson, professor
of agricultural economics, who is in charge of
the project
The Cozad Chamber of
Commerce has sent a letter in
viting the University to sched
ule the first of its tax work
shops in Cozad.
Peterson said that Cozad
may be selected as a test site
for the first workshop, but
that the group had indicated
they were more interested in
a broader program in the na
ture of the follow-up plan.
"'We hope there will be
quite a few communities that
express this local interest,"
Peterson said.
The Cozad Chamber, in
their letter to Chancellor Clif
ford Hardin said:
"We highly commend the
University on its decision to
undertake this very important
information program bearing
n a subject of intense per
sonal concern to every resi
dent of Nebraska.
"It has ben established that
this program is not only a le
gitimate but a necessary
phase of the University's adult
educational program. We are
convinced that the University
instructors will present valu
able information on taxation
in a way that will be objec
tive and constructive.
4"We vigorously disagree
with contentions that this will
be an effort to propagandize
people ... or to influence
them to support any partic
ular program of taxation.
" We feel the Nebraska
tax system should be exposed
to the closest and most in
formed examination pos
sible." Peterson said requests had
also been received frin a
number of individuals who in
dicated they were interested
in participating in the tax
workshops. He said these re
quests were turned over to the
county agents.
Nine Buildings
By Sue Hovik
Did you realize that the
University Library is
housed in eight buildings on
city campus and one on Ag
Several tens of thousands
of maps, pamphlets, and
mrauscripts, and 690,000
volumes are housed in Love
Memorial Library and eight
branch libraries.
Frank Lundy, director of
the University Library,
said that all the units are
closely bound together by
phone and messenger
service. They strive to get
the right book to the right
person at the right time.
All the units are part of
one system which seeks to
provide good service.
Lundy said that a
conspicuous feature of the
library service is that they
have j10,000 books avail
cble to students on o p e n
Love Memorial Library
Louses the books in the hu
manities division, this in
cludes languages, litera
tures, philosophies, fine'
arts, religion, and journal
ism, and the social sciences
division, which consists of
history, economics, political
science, sociology, psychol
ogy, and social work.
Law Library
The one exception in the
Bocial sciences is the Law
Library which is housed in
the College of Law building.
Lundy explained that the
jcience libraries are scat
tered because the libraries
in science are closely re
lated to the laboratory.
The chemistry library is
a part of the Science read
ing room and mainly a re
search library for graduate
students explained Mrs. Ed
na Bashara, librarian. Its
To Consider
World Peace
Problems of peace and
world disarmament will be
discussed Friday at an after
noon convocation sponsored
by the University of Nebraska
Committee for a Sane Nu
clear Policy.
Cecil H i n s h a w of Des
Moines, la., regional director
for peace education of t h e
American Friends Service
Committee, will speak at 1
p.m. in the Student Union
small auditorium. His talk
will be followed by a discus
sion of peace, world disarma
ment and alternatives to nu
clear war.
A former president of Wil
liam Perm College, Hinshaw
is a world traveler and lec
turer on international affairs.
Since February, 1960, he has
been vice president of t b e
World Peace Broadcasting
Foundation, which circulates
hundreds of tape recordings
of important talks on peace
and disarmament to radio
stations around the country
and makes available free
printed copies to -listeners.
The SANE committee was
recently organized at the Uni
versity to create campus
awareness of the threat of
nuclear war and the need for
peace and world disarma

The Bessey Hall library
is one of the ten best bi

try, not the largest but it
is one of the most carefully
selected according to H. L.
Weaver, professor of toot
any. The 23,000 books
housed there are in the
fields of botany, zoo
logy, microbiology, and
some physiology.
Mrs. Alice Wright, librari
an, 6aid that f or one day
in May 100 people used the
library with the heavy
emphasis upon graduate
students. She believes that
the main reason for this is
that people don't know
about the library.
The Library has .300 peri
odicals. It also has a "rare
book" room where study is
done on the origins of cer
tain subjects. It also has a
Botanic Index, one of eleven

Gov. Frank Morrison re
ceived notice last week of his
appointment as People-to-People
(PTP) ambassador to
The appointment came from
former President Dwight D.
Eisenhower, national director
of the, PTP effort.
Joyce Hall, president of
Hallmark Greeting Cards and
assistant to Eisenhow er in the
PTP, notified Morrison that
he would be responsible for
coordinating the PTP pro
gram in this area, encourag
ing groups to bring Europeans
to the United States and to
sponsor Americans in Europe.
The Governor will speak to
the Omaha Kiwanis club Fri
day, asking them to promote
a second exchange similar to
the state-wide Kiwanis effort
which brought 68 -German
youth on a three-week trip to
Nebraska this summer.
Morrison, who has just re
turned from a two week trip
to WTest Germany at the in
vitation of the German gov
ernment, was the first am
bassador apointed to the
PTP program abroad.
The University PTP effort,
now in its planning stages,
would fall under the general
coordination of Governor Mor
rison. Primarily, however, the
governor will work with adult
groups in an extension of the
PTP program originated in
1956 by then President Eisen
hower to promote internation
al understanding on a person
al basis.
Adult Exchange
The University's program,
sponsored by the. Student
Council, will enlarge upon the
adult exchange by encourag
ing the international student's
participation in University life
and in the life of American
"In an attitude of sincer
ity and spontaneity, the PTP
program at Nebraska would
be organized to give the in
ternational student a deeper
understanding of American
culture, tradition, and dem
ocratic methods as the United
States student learns of the
international student's country
and ways of life, said John
Nolon. one of the University's
two delegates to the Big Eight
PTP conference in Kansas
City and at Kansas Univer
sity Oct 28 and 29.
In 1955, the Dentistry li
- brary had 2,500 volumes and
the college has added as
many as its budget would
allow each year said Dr.
Ralph Ireland, Dean of the
College of Dentistry. The
library, on third floor of
Andrews, has books which
have "dentistry or dental"
in their title, explained
Dr. Ireland. Many of the
books used by students in
this college are in Love Me
morial library.
The .dentistry library has
new shelves and furnishings
in the reading room which
was donated by the Dental
Alumni Association. Mrs.
Margaret Lane, librarian,

logical. Mrs. Clotilde P.
Lowe, librarian, said that
the 18,000 volumes cover all
phases of geology. She ex
plained that the library re
ceives professional papers,
bulletins, maps, etc. from
the U.S. Geological Survey
and materials from the
U.S. Mining Bureau.
This library is used by
students in geography and
people in the Geological
Survey departments. T h e
hours of this library are i

Dr. Kenneth Rose of Student Health (right) explains
to NU athlete Don Parcell that liquid meals such as
sustagen, which was developed at Student Health, w ill not
win football games, but will aid the individual in his per

Street Plans
A decision on whether or
not to make R St a one-way
traffic lane will determine
whether or not University ex
pansion stops at R, St. or con- j
tinues to Q St i
State Highway Department
officials said they had re
ceived data on the traffic on
these streets, and expect to
make a decision by the end of
the week.
The University Board of
Regents went on record as fa
voring the use of R St. for
campus traffic only. They
supported a plan to designate
Q St as a major two-way cor
ridor feeding into the Inter
state highway access routes
on 9th and 10th Sts. They al
so endorsed the idea of a 7th
St bypass.
Chancellor Clifford Hardin
said that if R St. is to be a
busy street it will be wholly
impossible to cross. Property
south of R St would be wholly
unpractical for development
"Our preference, of course,
would be to go to Q St as the
southern boundary of the
campus,' he said.
Library Books
The physics library also
receives about 50 current
periodicals. Mrs. Blanche
Breen, librarian said that
the physics library concen
trates mainly on the upper

for the Ag campus will be
a new library to house its
70,000 volumes.
Collings said that now one
third of these books are
stored in the basement of
Love Memorial Library,
and the rest are -"scattered
from the basement to attic

The Ag library has a
strong periodical section in
the agriculture and biologi

ID Cards
All University students
who have identification
cards and library cards
may use any of the libraries
on either city or ag campus.
Lundy said that the Uni
versity is a place where
there are bsoks to read
and get ideas from and
students should be able
to find books everywhere.
He said that he thought it
would a fine thing if there
were from two to three hun
dred books in each sorority,
fraternity, and dormitory.

Calorie tabulation for both

Liquid Diet
During the 1950 fall practice
session, a liquid meal was giv
en upon rising, and offered
again at noon. During the 10
game varsity season, the fol
lowing diet was used both at
home and on the road.
At 9 a.m. a light meal of
toast honey and sliced
peaches was offered to pro
vide bulk and eliminate hun
ger pangs. At 10:30 a.m., 8
to 16 oz. of the liquid meal
was taken during taping and
tactical conferences. No other
food was eaten until after the
game, when the traditional
steak meal w'as served.
According to Dr. Rose the
results of the field trial
showed elimination of pre
game and gametime vomiting
and nausea, abdominal
cramps, "charley horses,
and "cotton mouth."
The following observation.
were also made:
Strength and endurance
were improved. General well
being was improved. Weight
loss did not occur. Hunger
complaints were rare.
Fifth Game
A total of 51 out of 52 play
ers voted to continue the
feeding plan after the fifth
game of the season.
"In my opinion, there is not
