This is the first program of
its kind in the history of the
University and El Colegio, he
said. It is not only a chance
for these students to study
at a first rate institution, but
they will also be studying
with the best of the Latin

preparing themselves for a
future in the deplomatic service.

Two more persons have
been nominated for the title
of "Outstanding Nebraskan."
Letters of nomination for John
Bentley, Publicity Director fo
Intercollegiate Athletics, and
for Frederick Beutel, profes
sor of Law, were received
yesterday by the Daily Ne
braskan. "I am aware," read the
letter nominating Bentf.ey,
"that the 'Outstanding Ne
braskan' faculty award goes
only to faculty members.
However, I am asking you to
suspend the rules to allow the
nomination of John Bentley to
be accepted."
Bentley's letter stated that
he is as much a part of the
University as is the coliseum,
where he has served for sev
enteen years.
He has been more than an
athletic publicist, said the let
ter, he has spread goodwill
in the name of the University
wherever he has travelled.
"John Bentley never con
sidered his work as just a
job. He has that unique qual
ity which makes men toil
overtime for something more
important than financial re
ward." The mark of an outstanding
faculty member, said the let
ter, is the harvest of his la
bor, his students who go
on to accomplishments of
their own. This has been the
case with Bentley. The upper
echelons of the state's and
midwest's sportswriters are
swelled with "Bentley's
Frederick Beutel, professor
of Law, is ' a professor who
is relatively unknown on this
campus, read his letter of
nomination. He is, however,
"chiefly responsible for the
national significance of one
of the professional colleges."
According to the letter, Pro
fessor Beutel arrived at the
University in 1945 and
reopened the College of Law
which had been closed during
World War II.
"It is because of his efforts
that the college of law now
has such an excellent aca
demic rating," it read.
As dean of the college from
1945 to 1949, Prof. Beutel com
pletely reorganized its struc
ture. He revised the curricu
lum, created the aptitude ex
am procedure, and reorgan
ized the Nebraska Law Re
view. Professor Beutel has written
seven books and thirty-fonr
law review articles. His books
are used as text and refer
ence books at all the leading
law colleges in the country.
Beutel, listed in "Who's
Who," is a member of the
American Law Institute, an
organization which periodical
ly modifies and revises the
laws on which this country is
"Outside of class, Profes
sor Beutel is always eager to
discuss and assist the students
in their legal education. His
tireless efforts to form the
minds of his students into an
alytical perfection has en
deared him to many".
The end of the academic
year will mark the end of
Beutel's 18-year career at the
University. He will 'retire' to
Puerto Rico, where he will
again organize a university
into "a nucleus of legal edu
cation." Forty-three students signed
the letter which terminated,
"Professor Beutel should be
honored by this University
and its students for his many
years of endeavor which have
resulted in one of the finest
law colleges in the nation,"
