specific requirements for admission.
Burke declared that requiring
' basic core of subjects for high

"Basic core" will be continued

abolish specific requirements for
admission, he declared.
He continued by saying, "Forty
percent of the 2,000 students
who will be graduated from
Omaha high schools this year
will go to 150 separate colleges
over the country."
He stated that the pattern will
