As a youth Dr. Beadle be
longed to a Saunders County
4-H club for two or three
years, with his major proj
ect gardening.
He was headed for a life of
farming, but was persuaded
by a high school teacher that
chemistry was interesting,
and this led to a decision to
attend college. While at the
NU College of Agriculture,
one of his professors, the late
F. D. Keim, introduced him
to genetics.
Discoveries by Dr,. Beadle
and Edward L. Tatum, gained

The Nebraska Chapter of

additjpn followed.
Later that evening, the j

The six-year combined pro
gram in agriculture and law,
approved by University offi
cials after considerable de
tailed study, will go into effect
next semester, according to
Dr. Franklin E. Eldridge, Di
rector of resident instruction
at the College of Agriculture
and Home Economics.

Intellectual History of Europe
in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The course was forced to
move to a larger hall when
417 Harvard students signed
up for it. According to Sar
gent Kennedy, Harvard regis
trar, the course is now the
fifth largest in the University.
Last spring, Kennedy said,
History 134a did not even
make the list of the "top ten"

culture and plan to obtain a
second degree in law, in ef
fect shortens by one academic
year the previous time re
quired to earn both degrees,
Dr. Eldridge explained. This
is made possible by "inter
locking" credits earned dur
ing the fourth year and hon
ored by both colleges, he con
tinued. During the first three years,
the students meet all specific
requirements for the general
agriculture curriculum. In the
fourth year which in acuali
ty is also his first year in the
College of Law he takes
courses which are electives
toward completion of the B.S.
in agriculture.
These same courses are pre
requisites for basic and ad
vanced law courses offered
during the last two years of
the six-year sequence. Stu
dents still are required to ap
ply for admission to the Col
lege of Law and required to
take a legal aptitude examina
tion. The program actually has
undergone an informal bat
successful "trial run" involv
ing one student who expressed
the desire to earn both de
g r e e s in six consecutive
years, Dr. Eldridge noted.
Faculty members of both col
leges approved the waiving of
then-existing requirements so
that Gil Grady, a I960 gradu
ate of the College of Agricul
ture, now enrolled in Law Col
lege, could follow what is bas
ically the arrangement now
approved, which will be car
ried in the official University
catalogue of course offerings
for 1964-65.
Dr. Eldridge said features
of the six-year combined pro
gram of agriculture and law
include these modifications of
former requirements of the
College of Agriculture and
Home Economics:
Course requirements for
a major in general agricul
ture or general agricultural
economics are reduced from
40 to 30 hours.
Completion of a minimum
of 15 hours of English, com
pared to the former require
ment of eight hours.
Completion of 98 hours of
work acceptable for a B.S.
degree with a scholastic aver
age at least equal to that re
quired for gradutaio...n
Not more than six hours
of certain highly specialized
courses in agriculture can be
included in the 98 hours of
courses in the College of Ag
and Home Ec.
A statement prepared by a
special University study com
mittee on the new program
says: knowledge of the tech
nical aspects of agricultural
production is highly desirable
for lawyers in farming areas,
who deal with the problems
of leases, mortgages, farm
transfers and estate plan
"Agricultural knowledge Is
also helpful to law graduates
who work for commercial
banks or cooperative agencies
extending farm credit, or for
firms engaged in processing
and marketing farm prod
ucts, or in selling farm sup
plies to farmers."
The six-year program is es
pecially designed for students
"who wish to capitalize on
their experience, training,
and interest in agriculture in
pursuing a career in the field
of law," the statement concluded.

Columbia's Dean
Cuts Dorm Hours
After Riot Attemp
New York, NY (CPS) -David
B. Truman, dean of
Columbia College, announced
last Thursady night that visit
ing hours for women in the
dorms aTter the next two
home football games would be
cancelled because of an ear
lier attempted panty-raid.
Addressing almost 600 male
students, Dean Truman said,
"We are determined that it
is part of our obligation . . .
to see that you learn, if pos
sible, the maturity of self
control In an explosive sit
uation such as Sunday night
(the panty-raid)."
He said that the Sunday
demonstration, and particu
larly the throwing of cans
and bottles from dormitory
windows, indicated that the
level of maturity required for
extension of dormitory visit
ing hours had not been
reached by Columbia College
students. He emphasized that
he agreed with President
Grayson Kirk that visiting
privileges should be linked
with the avoidance of riots.
