The second University banana crop
was harvested last week by Hans Bur
chardt, a plant propagator and breeder for
the University's horticulture department.
His banana tree is just a part of a
large collection of plants he raises in the
greenhouse at the College of Agriculture
and Home Economics for teaching botany
students about plants and their methods
The entire banana crop consists of
one stalk of 200 bananas. The roots of the
tree are already putting np the shoot that
will provide a third crop about 15 months
from now. The tree is a Cuban Dwarf
banana tree because a commercial banana
tree would be too big for the greenhouse.
Burchrdt Is an expert on bananas. He
spent 15 years before World War II in
Africa as a horticulturist on plantations
and as a botanist for the Berlin Botanical
He has degrees in horticulture from
German universities, and is now starting
his sixth year with the University.
The botanical display is only a part of
his work. In addition, he produces plant
material that shows up in the fields and
yards around the state.
Currently he is breeding plants that
range from advanced varieties of field
beans to new types of chrysanthemums.
Among the other exotic, at least for
Nebraska, teaching material he has in the
greenhouse are a fig tree, a lemon tree,
a grapefruit tree, all bearing fruit, plus
varieties of tropical flowers and plants.

Dr. E. E. Eldridge, direc

ship will help to meet "a con

graduates in agriculture who
are interested in merchandis

such as agricultural chemi
cals." Agricultural technicians are
being graduated at a rate
sufficient to meet most needs,
but those with an agricultural
background and training who
are interested in selling are
extremely rare, he noted.

petition carrying more than
12.000 signatures came from
students at Colorado Univer

against proposed tuition in

be raised 40 from $104 a
semester to $142. Out-of-state
students would face an in

Two Oxford University stu
dents, Rory Donellan, 22, and
Adam Poynter, 20, engaged in
a duel with sabers over Eve
lyn Mottson, another Oxford
student, last Wednesday. '
The Oxford campus news
paper, CHERWELL, said that
Poynter had referred to Miss
Mottson as "thick and made
to her mind and body.
Donellan, a law student and
an expert swordsman, . then
challenged Poynter to a duel.
Poynter accepted although he
had never handled a sword.
The two met at dawn on the
lawn of Magdalen College
while a medical student stood
by as doctor.
The highest price, paid au it quite clear he was referring

$332 per semester, and some
board members claimed this

than to flood African uni

there were 118 legitimate
black African students in
China in early 1961. By
April of 1962, only 22 re

were trying forget out.
But these were legitimate

the campus chaplains:
"Duties on campus should

of their denominations.
"Each of the chaplains
should obtain the approval of
the executive dean of student
life before beginning services
on the campus and that the
continuance of such service
should be at the discretion of
