"There is no reason for fed
eral grants in aid to the de
partments of health, labor, pub
lic assistance or any of the
other 36 divisions of state gov
ernment," he declared.
When asked if rejecting federal
aid would necessitate raising state
taxes, he answered it would if
other states continued to accept
grants. However, Crosby added,
the action of one state or of sev
eral states in refusing federal aid
might "nudge" Congress into cur
tailing the program.
As a basis for his policy of
decentralized control, he quoted
Woodrow Wilson as saying, "A
growth of central government
has always meant a devolution
of personal liberties."
Crosby particularly attacked the
state public assistance policy. It
is "ludicrous" to him, he said, that
todav when business prosperity
and employment are at a peak

aid is also at an all-time high.
He allowed that $55 a month is
not sufficient to enable old per
sons to live more than an "ani
mal existence." But he declared
that the system of pensions should

form age can be set for retire
ment, he said, and no uniform
amount can be set for pensions.
"The amount of assistance,"
he added, "should be in pro-
nnrtlon to the need."
He also said that he would pre

the legislative "rule of thumb"

set up by compact, to adminis

The contraction of the earth's
time dimension to such negligible
size is one of the most signhVant
facts of our time. The University
Air Age Education division is at
tempting to make us conscious of
the consequences of the epochal
situation which makes the earth
smaller than was Nebraska 50
years ago.
Dr. Frank Sorenson has been
a nationally known leader in
the field of air age education
for the past ten years and it
was largely through his impetus
that the special air age division
was established last summer.
The division, while centered at
the University, operates through
