FROM THE MORNING JOURNAL 4,000 fans ✓ hail s((iia(l of Hiiskers Tliev*ro a wav A’ » to Kose Kowl Nch's in Brief IJiiroln Land Swafx of 800 por»on.s Four thousand—count ’em— four thousand of the Scarlet faithful sardined into a block-long stretch along the Rock Island tracks Thursday night to hail and bid farewell to 43 Nebraska Com- huskers who heeded the call of the west—and the Rose Bowl. Packed so closely any movement ' NVhra!'kii beyond exercise of the lungs was impossible, the throng cheereil long and lustily, chanted, sang, whooped, hollered. There was small ceremony as the players singly and in groups boarded the special bound for Phoenix, Ariz., where for nine days, they’ll sharpen their timing, precision and attack for the New Year’s day battle with Stanford in Pasadena’s Secco Arroyo. The mob ranged in age from cheering oldsters like 72 year old K. F.. Mockett, captain of the first Nebraska team half a century ago, to babes in arms. wi<le-eyed and wondering what all the shouting and shoving was about, Mr. Mockett was given an "N” sweater by Don F'itz, president of the *‘N” club and varsity basket- baller. “Going to Win,” "I’ve waited 50 years for Nebraska to go to the Bowl," the first captain told the students and townspeople, “and they’re going to win this one!" As Ralph Worden, Husker Yell King, led the crowd in cheers, the team kissed sweethearts goodbye, took Christmas presents from parents, acknowledged the cries of “Good luck, fella!" and quietly found seats on the train. No player was willing to predict the score hut all held a f«*el- ing of optimism and calm confidence. “We ought to beat 'em," Tackle Behm said. Vike “Leave-It-to-Me“ Francis, grinned as he swung up into the car. “Great, isn’t it!” In one car, Harry Hopp, Roy Petsch, Don Hul)ottom and (’lar- ence Herndon sat together as nonchalant as you apparently thinking of something far removed from football Union Director—Joyce Ayres, graduate of the University of Nebraska in 1930, was appointed managing director of the student union by the board of directors.

Carter Lake, a town locateli on a horse.shoe of land near Council Bluffs In Iowa yet near Omah.a and containing many people who work in Omaha, may be given to Nebraska because of its i.solated location from the rest of Iowa. Law enforcement in Carter Lake has been a head- a(;he to Omaha officials. Power Grid —(Nmsumers Public I’ower district has no quarr**! with irrigation districts in the state, .said C. B. Fricke, president of the district, in reply to a .statement by Dr. I). W. Kings- hy, Tri-County director. Kingsley said Tri-County’s chief aim was irrigation, not joining in the purchase and operation of Nebraska’s power facilities. Highway Bids —The state high- army and navy officers and privates who apparently were members of the bund Planes—The pace of U. S. aid to Britain has been stepped up to the point,where the are getting more U. S. fighting planes than is the U. S. army. About ten times as many planes went to Britain as the army received. The army expects to get later model planesw hen production increases. Arms Orders—Increasing expenditures and reduced aw’ards of orders in November were indications that the “preliminary phases of the procurement program for national defense have been completed," said the national industrial conference board. November expenditures totaled 365 million dollars. Racial Trouble Two Memphis Negro newspaper editors were ordered by a police commissioner to refrain from publishing "inflammatory articles that would incite race hatred.’’ The editors were warned the city would not tolerate the newspapers’ “running articles that would stir up feeling between the whites and blacks." Life in the Army—The day the army recruit moves into the army he’t do anything as simple as pack »ip his things and go .sf»me place else. Instead he spends most of the day answering roll calls and listening to a captain or colonel tell what is expecte<l of him. way department clo.sed its contracting activities for the year Thursday by accepting bids on $279,748 worth of construction.

Attorney General John M. Rankin .said Thursday night that he has been spproached informally by the Nebraska attorney general with a proposition to make “orphaned" Carter Lake, la., a part of the Comhusker state. Carter Lake is a town of approximately 8(»0 persons on a horseshoe of land near ('ouncil Bluff.s, cut off in 1888 when the Missouri river cut itself a new channel across the emls of the horseshoe. j Law enforcement in (’arter j l..ake has been a problem for sev- I eral years of its isolated position, Rankin said.

It’s a 20 mile round trip from Iowa to Carter Lake. Omaha police have no authority on Iowa soil. Rankin said the Nebra.ska attorney general had suggested a ■ deal similar to that whereby a i boundary dispute between Iowa ! and Missouri was settled a year, ago. In that instance a .section of farm land near Keokuk, formerly m Iowa but placed on the Mi.s.souri aide by a change in the channel, was swappied for another .section of land on which a cannery la located. The cannery formerly was on the Mi.ssouri .side. A similar .solution in the Carter Lake instance.

The editors of Memphis’ two Negro news- papiers—the ten year old W’orld and the fledgling Sentinel—Thursday had orders from Police Commissioner Joseph Boyle to refrain from publishing "inflammatory articles that would incite race hatred." Boyle, currently the keystone of a concerted crime cleanup campaign here, told reporters verbally that he summoned two newspa- perment—L. O. Swingler, 34, a graduate of Nebraska university, and W‘. A. Beasley, 48—to his office and warned them he would not “tolerate" the newspapers “running articles that would stir up feeling between the whites and blacks.” “It’ll just be too bad for them if they don’t" follow his instructions, the commissioner told reporters. Boyle’s ultimatum follow'ed a written statement to Memphis newspapers last week wherein he said police had their "eyes on" 19 Memphis Negroes whom he accused of fanning race hatred. “A great many cities in the north and south have had serious race riots with tremeniious bloodshed,” .said the statement. "If careful and stern preparation for the of peace will prevent it, it will be prevented in Memphis.” The commLssioner’s w' r i 11 e n .statement specifically accused the two newspapers of “copying stones from the Pittsburgh and Chicago Negro newspapers, trying to stir up trouble. ... A young element of the Negroes has become insolent, reaching a point where their restraint is necessary. They gather in crowds, throwing stones at night and cursing white people m automobiles.” "I told Mr. Boyle I was only responsible for the local news appearing in the World and that 1 had nothing to do with out of town articles furnished by our syndicate (Scott Newspaper Syndicate),” Swingler said. Swingler, a graduate of Nebraska university, became editor of the World in 1931, shortly after it was founded jointly by W. A., Scott of the Scott Newspaper Syndicate, Atlanta, Ga., and John E. Oakes. The paper, a semi-weekly has a circulation of 18,000 on Fridays and 12,000 on Tuesday’s, Swingler said. CHEERLEADERS AND TASSELS lent an air of color to the affair.
