Nine University plant breed

The Saturday meeting was
one stop for the Russians who
began a five-day visit to the

During the two and one-half
hoar discussions, the Russian
delegation of six split into
three groups basic genet
ics, forage and field crops,
and soils. In these small
round-table discussions, the
foreign visitors used every
opportunity to quiz the Ameri

Corn and wheat were the
main topics of the discussion

iU Poll Taken
Student Opinion Condemns South
For Detaining College Integration
Dally Nebraskan Reporter
Recently, the problem of racial inte
gration was brought sharply into focus by
the incident of James Meredith, 23-year
old, enlisted Air Force man who attempted
to enter the non-integrated campus at the
University of Mississippi
Refused admission after a Federal
Court order directed University officials to
allow him entrance, Meredith's case
brings integration out of the grade school
and onto the college campuses.
On Friday, Sept 21, Meredith, es
corted by federal fficlala, entered the ad-.
ministration building at die University of
MlsvlisfppL Meredith was informed that
fcij admission was refused by a special
enactment of the state legislature.
Nebraska, lying several hundred
miles from this hot-bed of racial and edu
cation controversy, is nevertheless af-
Tbe actions of any part f the educa
tional or political community affect not
only these fasti tntions,lirt all people under
their jurisdiction and influence. The Daily
Nebraskan fcas taken a surface poll of
pinion among students and educators, in
an attempt to analyze tbe campus atti
tude concerning this timely problem.
Don Francis, sophomore transfer from
Omaha University felt, "Tbe South is dif
ferent Colored pressure groups and white
sentiment has created an atmosphere of
"pushing" on both sides."
Ralph Grotelnescben, FartnHonse
sophomore feels that, "the university
community is open to all students. It is
relatively tragic that color should control
knot: Sedge."
' . Milton Schmeeckle, Theta Xi senior
stated, "Meredith seems to be a 'rabble
raiser,' he's forcing the issue."
Dr. Curtis Elliott, professor of insur
ance at the University, asserted that in
tegration is here to stay and that respon
sible individuals should face the' problem,
and solve it"
Nancy Campbell, Kappa Kappa Gam
ma sophomore, feels firmly that "the col

this into existence then colleges should

Shevchenko and B. A. Tol
akov's faces lit up when two
big ears of corn were brought
in. They busily counted ker
nels on each of the 16-inch
long ears and found about 600
grains apiece.
"If only we could grow two
such ears on our plants!"
they commented. The Univer
sity agronomists explained
that rarely did one plant
produce more than one huge
ear. Often the combined
weight of ears from a multiple
fruiting plant was more than
that of the ear of a single
fruiting plant.
Short Season
"What would you plant in
such a short season as we
have in Siberia?" they asked.
Lonnquist cited Quebec's
"Gasby Flint' corn as "the
earliest ripening corn I've ev
er seen." This type is grown
on the Atlantic coast west of
Hudson Bay.
Nebraska Preference
Tolakov, editor of the jour
nal "Farm Life" wanted to
know which Nebraskans pre
ferred to grow, corn or sor
ghum. The Nebraskans' answer
was, corn in the East mflo
in the West.
Eastern farmers don't seem
to like milo because its naked
head weathers badly in t h e
humid land along the Missouri.

The 1962 University Home
coming display rules have
been changed so that one
fraternity and one sorority
may combine to build a single
display at a cost of not
more than $300, according to
Steve Cass, member of Inno
cents and Homecoming chairman.
The display contest has
been divided into three new
sections 1) the combined
group, 2) the men's group
and 3) the women s group,
Trophies will be given in each
group. The maximum amount
of money which may be spent
by the single houses compet
ing is $200.
Cass said that if two small
er houses wish to go togeth
er with a large sorority or if
a residence hall wishes to
combine with a sorority or a
fraternity, it will be legal with
the rules the Innocents Soci
ety has set up.
The decision as to where the
displays will be located will
be left up to the houses in
volved unless they become
too centralized. If this hap
pens, Cass said, the Innocents
Society will have the right to
select display sites.
Reasons for Change
Cass gave three reasons for
the display revamp.
1) Other schools such as
Colorado University, and the
University of Iowa have done
it with excellent success as
well as an overall increase in
homecoming spirit.
2) Monetary savings result
because the houses will split
the costs of production.
3) Savings in study time,

Select Partners Tonight .
Cass stressed the impor
tance of the houses making
their selections in meetings
tonight. All decisions must
be turned into Cass at the Del
ta Upsilon house in writing
before 6 p.m. tomorrow. Those
houses which fail to comply
with this rule will automatical
ly be placed in the single
house divisions. If questions
arise Cass may be reached
by phoning 435-8673 tomorrow
"We expect some confusion
this year," Cass said, "but it
has worked well in other
schools and will soon become
a tradition at the University.'

Hikes, Kicks
Karen Bush, daughter of
Nebraska basketball Coach
Jerry Bush and a member
of Delta Gamma, was named
Miss Quarterback 1962 at
the football rally Friday
The basis of selection cen
tered on passing, catching,
hiking and kicking ability as
well as "athletic beauty."
Athletic Director Tippy Dye
and Head Football Coach
Bob Devaney were the judges.
Three other girls were
named finalists: Marian

and Sandy Lane, Kappa,
Alpha Theta.
"Thines were pretty bloody
during the parade before the
rally, said Wes Grady, presi
dent of Corn Cubs. "Some of
our Corn Cob workers who
were trying to protect the
band from the herd of stu
dents were unnecessarily beat
en up, he continued.
Grady also noted that there
were numerous fights be
tween members of the vari
ous fraternity pledge classes,
but this is traditional for the
first rally of the season.
Things will calm down dur
ing the rest of the rallies.
In response to the rumor
that the administration might
crack down on the remaining
rallies, Grady said that he
didn't think they would do
anything, but there was al
ways the possibility.

this chant and the cheering
spirit of the student section

caught up -in the excitement.
Saturday I saw my first
American football game; this
in itself is not very extraor
dinary, but what an atmos
phere under which to see it!
In England, the home of
soccer, we have no cheer-
leaders, no popcorn, coke or
hot-dogs, and no giants of
men struggling and fighting
for a touchdown. And, believe
me, tbe Englishmen don't
know what they are missing.
One notices immediately
the huge size of the players;
at home they trot onto the
Held mere men, weak and
puny; here they are gods of
strength. Or at least they
are worshipped like gods.
Whether or not the cheer
leaders, (poor exhausted
souls, after IVt hours, I'm
sure) do anything for the
team by way of encourage
ment, (can they hear any
thing beneath that strange
garb?) or not, I don't know,
but it certainly excites the
crowd to a greater pitch of
excitement and lunacy.
Had you been in my posi
tion, you too might have felt
a secret fear of being tram
pled by these fanatics leaping
up and down, and waving red
and white things in your
face. However I must admit
it is very contagious.
But it did leave a great
impression of team spirit and
who would want to miss see

up under a heap of bodies
anyway? Certainly not I, as
I loved every minute.

couldn't have played a nicer

duction to American football!
