Monday, April 27, 1964 The Daily Nebraskan Page 3 Hlylbirodl Westf IFi The 2,400 pots of wheat in the new wheat greenhouse on the Ag College campus of the University go a long way toward explaining the need for the new facility. The greenhouse was official ly presented to the University this week by Ak-Sar-Ben. It doubles the Nebraska ca pacity for developing the Fedde Hall Out Tugs Burr Hall Squealing pigs, eggy hair does, and straining muscles signaled the beginning of games, a picnic and a dance at the All-Ag Picnic Friday night Fedde Hall girls "pulled through" to victory as they defeated Burr Hall boys to win the tug-of-war champion ship. It was a double shock to the defeated boys once when they found they had lost to the weaker gender, and sec ond, when they hit the elec tric fence that signaled their defeat! "What will these humans think up next?" seemed to be the attitude of the twelve well-greased porkers, when they found themselves being chased around by seven coeds. No doubt they had quite a story to tell the rest of their large family when they were returned home. Donna Hanna was the first to grab a greasy pig. Marilyn Fuhrman was second. Natalie Haha got an egg shampoo, but she and her partner, Ron Ferris, came out the winners in the egg tossing contest. A faceful of chocolate pie end whipped cream was the prize for those brave enough to try to eat a chocolate pie with no hands. One little boy, who could barely reach the table top, found that fingers worked better and dug in, ignoring the rules. Carolyn Cilek won the girls event; Gail Warren, the chil dren's; Warren Sahs, the fac ulty division; and Dale Travnicek, the boys' division. After downing another cholo late pie, Travnicek and Miss Hanna were awarded the prizes as grand champion pie-eaters. Alpha Gamma Rho found that girls aren't as light as a feather, but they carried one across the finish line to win the piggy-back relay. Alpha Gamma Sigma had the best time of 2:27 minutes in the bale stacking contest, and Ann Shooster won the children's straw hunt. A picnic supper and street dance followed the games. An estimated 450 people attend ed the annual event. Nebraskan Want Ads JOBS: Summer Job . couiw or t Weettrn Boye' Cmp In Now Jereey aval Wilt lor IntereelMl etudenti.

This wheat, they trust, will have the vigor and other qual ities to add millions of dol lars to the state's agricultur ally based economy. The greenhouse was pre sented by Jess Thurmond, 1964 King of Ak-Sar-Ben, as a gift from the Omaha Civic organization to the University and the people of Nebraska in recognition of the need to speed the development of a hybrid wheat adapted to Ne braska conditions. Dr. Virgil Johnson and Dr. John Schmidt already have the new greenhouse up to full capacity. It doubles the amount of materials with which they can work, and thereby doubles their chance of quickly de veloping lines of wheat which will lend themselves to hy bridization. The greenhouse resulted from Ak-Sar-Ben's recognition of the importance of following through on the pioneering Ne braska research effort in hy brid wheat. The Ak-Sar-Ben action is be ing reinforced by a committee of the Nebraska Crop Im provement Association. The committee, headed by Honor Ochsner, Madison farmer and businessman, is carrying on a campaign to provide funds to support the expanded hy brid wheat development pro gram. The Crop Improvement As sociation is aiming for about $25,000 a year in volunteer contributions for at least five years. A five year program is not expected by Johnson and Schmidt to produce the hy brid wheat Nebraska farmers would like to have for their fields, but should take the de velopment nearly half way. While declining to predict exactly, the scientists say de velopment of the first hybrid wheat safely certifiable for Nebraska could take as long as 10 to 12 years. The steps that may eat up the time are: Converting desirable lines of wheat to stable carriers of the male sterile and fertility restorer genes. Increasing the seed stocks to quantities needed to make hybrids and test them in the field (10 to 20 pounds). Field production and qual ity evaluation of the result ing wheat. Seed increase and final evaluation by processors. One of the big time-con- sum&rs. the scientists say, is the need to back-cross a de sirablc strain into which the sterility or the restorer genes are being transfcred until the characteristics which made the strain desirable in the first place are all recovered. This can take as many as seven back crosses. Unfortunately for Nebras kans, the hard red winter wheat which they grow needs the same season for develop ment in a greenhouse as it would outdoors.

In spring wheats, more than one crop a year can be pro duced in a greenhouse, thus the likelihood is that a hybrid spring wheat will be devel oped before a hybrid hard red winter wheat, the scien tist said. Once the first hard red winter wheat hybrid is devel oped, however, the numbers of hybrid wheats adapted to Nebraska should increase rap idly, Schmidt and Johnson said. This is because a large number of lines will be under development simultaneously. The time factor involved in their development means that when one is perfected, many others should be perfected at nearly the same time. This is when the scientists' dream of being able to quick ly adapt wheat to changing conditions will come about.

PHI elfs Hold Bridge The first annual Delta Tau Delta Bridge Tournament found great enthusiasm and success Saturday when twenty-six houses participated in the event. Russell Joynt, alum adviser for the Delts, said that he was very pleased with the turnout and participation. He was very impressed that the teams were careful to follow the rules and that they showed good sportsmanship through out the tournament. An orientation meeting was held Wednesday because most of the players had not played tournament bridge before.

Both Schmidt and Johnson are quick to point out, how ever, that there is no guaran tee at this time that the hy brid wheats they may devel op will produce enough more or be available as seed at a cheap enough price to be a paying substitute for conven tional wheats. In addition, they remind, the hybrid wheat breeding program will not .replace the regular breeding program that has been carried on over the years. The conventional breeding program, Johnson and Schmidt said, is necessary as a base from which the lines carrying the characters needed in the hybrid program will be continually developed.

He said that it did take a little longer than usual to tally the scores because some of the players were a little confused about the different scoring method. The first playing session be gan at 9:30 Saturday morn ing and ended at 12:30. Lunch was then served to the play ers, and at 1:30 they again began the long hours of con centration. A total of fifty six hands of bridge were played by each team and by 4:30 the last hand was laid down. Three traveling trophies were given to the top three teams and also individual tro phies were given to the mem bers of these teams. First TODAY PANHELLENIC will meet at 4:30 p.m. in 332-334 Union.

Medical Student Conference Guest Roy Neil, a junior medi cal student at the University College of Medicine, has been invited to attend the first conference on Contemporary Research in Pathology. The conference, sponsored by the Inter-Society Commit tee for Research Potential in Pathology, is being conducted at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. Neil has been awarded two National Institute of Health summer research fellowships during his medical school career. In 1962 he conducted research on cystic fibrosis in the department of pediatrics, and last summer he studied liver disease in the depart ments of pathology and inter nal medicine. fall of the cards at the first QQ place went to the Phi Kappa Psi team composed of Sid Stacey and Tom Henrion. Sec ond place honors went to Beta Theta Pi represented by Bob Kvaall and Jim Gleason. Third place went to Delta Upsilon whose team consisted of Bernie Chllderston and Joe Watkins. The Gamma Phi Beta team, of Diane Housel and Sandy Moody was first in sororities. Judges for the contest were Delt alum advisers Joe Mc Williams and Joynt. Directing the affair was Hal Erwin. The luncheon and all arrange ments were handled by Jim Ensz. The Delts plan to make this an annual event. Four Give Views On Council Issues Four of the five male can didates running for Student Council from ' Teachers Col lege favor more student parti cipation in Council affairs and issues. The fifth candidate, Thomas Murphy, did not sub mit his platform views to the DAILY NEBRASKAN. Eight women candidates' platform ideas will appear Wednesday. Charles Samuelson Charles Samuelson says of Council representation "a thorough examination" of an organization's relationship to "a substantial number of stu dents" should be made. "As for the merit of the present system itself, it is designed to bring forth the most talented and most In terested students, and there fore is good," Samuelson says. Samuelson, who has a 6.1 average, calls for a "more coordinated relations between the students and the faculty." Bill Hayes "The present representation system," says Bill Hayes, "which Includes organization al reps is unfair, on the grounds that while each stu dent is represented at least once, some students theoret ically may have representa tion eight times. Hayes, who has a 5.1 cumu lative, feels Council - student Hinshaw Presents Recital Harvey Hinshaw, associate professor of music at the University will appear in a faculty recital tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. in the Nebraska Union ballroom. ' The performance is open to the public. Professor Hinshaw will play three major works, "Sonata in C Major (1791)" by Haydn; "Contrapunctus XIX," (unfinished) from the "Art of the Fugue," by Bach; and "First Sonata," by Ives. Hindhaw has been with the University since 1856 and came with an exten sive professional career. He was concert pianist and ac companist to Albert Wilcox, bass-baritone, in more than 500 programs in the western United States in the years 1950-51. Before coming to the University, he was Igor Gorin's accompanist and soloist for Gorin's concerts. He also has appeared with John Charles Thomas, both in his concerts and as an ac companist in his teaching. His formal education was obtained at Pasadena Junior College, Occidental College, a n d the University of South ern California. ; h , ...vr h ) i (.1 VJ V Be An American Airlines Stewardess Would you like to put on an American Airline stewardess uniform and wings?

Hult quist says, "Oftentimes th students opinions are formu lated by the Council." H calls for more definite stands on city and state policies af fecting students. "The Student Council should seek to come to an under standing with Administration as to whether Administration is representing the student body on such matters as the recent Lincoln City Council decision on the re-definition of family," Hultquist said. Bob Dlekmann Bob Diekmann, with a 5.0 average, notes that "t h e representation system seems to be working quite well at this time." He says activities representation "might be re vised." Diekmann also sup ports a constitutional conven tion "because it hasn't even been questioned in the last ten years." Diekmann calls for more active interest of his Teachers College students. Horner To Participate In Research Seminar Dr. James Horner, associ ate professor of vocational education, has been selected by Dr. Walter Arnold, U.S. assistant commissioner of ed ucation, to participate in a re search seminar at Pennsyl vania State University this week. Horner is one of eight agri cultural educators in the na tion who were selected on the basis of "assigned responsi bility and research capabil ity."
