Nebraska high school administrators sug

requirements for University entrance. They
urged that 15 "satisfactory units" of hifh school
work be retarded as the only requirement for
First blow struck in the educational argument
came from leading faculty members of the Uni
versity's College of Arts and Sciences. They called
the reflections of the resolution "unrealistic and
perilous to sound education."
On their side, the University Arts and Sciences
heads are arguing for retention of the English,
foreign languages, mathematics, and physical
science requirements for college entrance. Main
contention of the state school administrators is
that the 15 units of "satisfactory" work will bet
ter enable the student to follow his chosen work
and will facilitate education of those students
who do not go on to college. The units of work
may be obtained in such fields as wood working,
military drill and athletics.
Nineteen Arts and Sciences executive com
mittee members and department chairmen
have gene en record as opposed to the sugges
tion from the Nebraska Education association.
A committee within the NEA Is studying the
problem. From comments heard from both
sides, the problem has been a thorn In the side
of educators, both high school and University,
for many years.

entrance requirements have been subjected to a
long and valid test. They have stood for many
years and have proved satisfactory, as far as
possible, as a basis for a student going on to
higher and more effective learning. These high
school requirements were undoubtedly set up
because they were necessary to a student enter

just as essential to the knowledge of students

Perhaps more consideration could be made for

Men Rate Neckties !

When women start paying at
