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

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
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
"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
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.

many lines of wheat that will
lead, scientists believe, to the
promised land of hybrid
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
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
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. However, the

cause' controlled growing and
fertilization conditions are
needed for efficient large
scale crossing efforts.
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
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.

YOU'RE THE DUMMY Eager fingers guided the
annual Delta Tau Delta bridge tourney.
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.
Joynt said that even though
this was new for many, ev
erything went very smoothly

With the numerous breeding
materials at hand, they will
be able to quickly transfer a
desired character from one to
another, thus meeting both
disease and insect threats and
demands for changes in qual
ity. 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.
and no major difficulties
arose. 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

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

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

bass-baritone, in more than
500 programs in the western
United States in the years
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
