Five Hours Left For Fun
If you are an average college student you study
between 10 and 20 hours a week. You are in a
tmall minority, If you study more than 30 hours.
That Is what the results of an Associated Collegi
ate Press poll indicate.
A survey of college students throughout the
nation showed that 45 per cent of students study
from 10 to 20 hours a week, aside from mid
term week and final exam week. The next
largest group, composing 28 per cent of students
polled, studies 10 hours or less. About 16 per
cent study from 20 to 30 hours and about 5 per
cent, 30 hours or more. Six per cent said they
didn't know.
Students in the latter category said they had
a "very irregular schedule."
Graduate students study the most according to
the polL Thirty-five per cent put in more than
20 hours a week as compared to 19 per cent
for freshmen and 23 per cent for seniors.
A pre-law student at the University of Akron
said that "most of the time you don't know
what to study for." He studies less than 10
hours a week. A sophomore in music says she
studies "whenever I get a chance," which
amounts to about 15 hours a week.
. A few other comments were: A business senior
at Baylor maintained that his courses over lapped
too much to require extensive study.
A girl in liberal arts who spends 10 to 20
hours a week with books said that college
work should be difficult, but not enough to keep'
you forever swamped.
If this poll Is anywhere near accurate there
are plenty hours left over for part time jobs
and (or) social activities and extra-cirrlcular ac
tivities for students. i
For instance, besides studying, a student must
attend classes, take time to eat and sleep. Taking
the maximum number of study hours of nearly
one half of college student, 20, in addition to eight
hours of sleep each night or 56 a week, and a
maximum of three hours a day or 21 a week for
eating and an average number of class hours, 17,
this would total about 114 hours.
With 168 hours in the week, this leaves at
least 54 hours for activities, part time work and
social activity. Even a part time job of 20 hours
a week would allow about five hours a day of
free time.
College students evidently are not too pressed
for time. Naturally, much is wasted, but much
is put to excellent use. Good budgeting of time
often will produce several extra hours a week
for students who feel over burdened with college
activities J.K.
Figures Don't Jibe

Vigorous high school pep, will compete tonight for

suggests that the advisory board uke a look at the

the small number which will be selected. The nunv

shown by each sex. S.G.
Let's Hear Senator Kerr
A "100 per cent" Truman Fair Dealer, a man
who was born in a log cabin and now admittedly
worth at least $10 million, Sen. Robert S. Kerr of
Oklahoma, will speak in the Union ballroom
tonight at 8 p.m. As scheduled by the University
Convocations committee, Senator Kerr will speak
on education, foreign policy and his record as gov
ernor of Oklahoma.
Sen. Estes Kefauver, his only opponent in Ne
braska, will speak in the Union ballroom next
Monday night at 8 p.m.
Main contention, in regard to the Nebraska
battle ground, seems to be the natural gas bill,
sponsored by Krr, passed by both Senate and
House and vetoed by President Truman. The
Federal Power commission then adopted a ruling
In line with Kerr's suggested legislation. The
FPC ruling removes independent gas produces
from FPC price regulations like the original
legislation proposed.
Nebraska's Gov. Val Peterson protested the
Kerr bill. And Nebraska's Sen. Hugh Butler voted
for the bill. Hence, the injection of Kerr into the
Nebraska Senatorial campaign plus his differences
with Senator Kefauver.
Kefauver has announced that Senator Kerr is
backed in Nebraska by the "Quigley-Boyle po
litical machine." James C. Quigley is a national
Democratic committeeman from Valentine, and
Bernard J. Boyle is an Omaha attorney heading
Kerr's state forces.
Senator Kerr is being recommended to fellow
Democrats for many reasons, one being the "equal
ity for all citizens" which he has advocated. Kerr
backers include in this: appointment of Negroes
to high positions, carrying precincts in Negro dis
tricts by majorities of 3 to 1 and 4 to 1, using
the full power of his office to give equal rights
and opportunities to all citizens, regardless of race,
creed or color and materially increasing the num
ber of Negroes holding executive positions in Okla
homa's state government.
With his Oklahoma backing, in which state
segregation is written into the law, Senator Kerr
voted with the South against civil rights legisla
tion. Senator Kerr is on record as voting with labor
on 21 or 22 key votes listed by a national labor
organization. He advocates 100 per cent of parity
for farmers and says he will always give labor
the benefit of a doubt. He favors unreduced spend
ing for social services and public works.
Following President Truman's dismissal of Gen.
Margin Notes
In Gov. Val Peterson's press conference this
week, he pointed to specific instances of "un
truths" published in the campaign of his rival
for ft U. S. Senate seat, Sen. Hugh Butler. The
Republican battle for the Senatorial position
aeems to have degenerated Into a charge, counter-charge,
campaign rather than a political race
based on constructive platforms.
The th3me of Search Week, "mapping a way
to a more secure life," and the general atmosphere
of the 'entire program seems to have been brought
much closer to students and student religious prob
lems this year. Congratulations tj the University
pastors, student Search Week heads and all others
concerned, with Injecting quite a bit of vitality
Into an extremely vital project
Student with religious difficulties might well
take advantage of the personal Interviews being
arranged with the Search Week speakers. Such
a plan will be beneficial not only to those who
have a speclfio problem to present but also to
any University student that sees the importance
of the guidance of the speakers, all of whom are
national religious figures.
Gen. Alfred M. Gruenther, native Nebraskan
and General Eisenhower's chief of staff in Europe,
told the Senate foreign relations committee of "in
ternal" progress in the western European nations
In regard to defense. General Gruenther quoted
General Eisenhower as saying that the defense of
western Europe must come from within the Euro
pean nations and that progress in this direction is
being made in good measure. It is encouraging to
hear something besides conflict, coercion and con
fusion come out of the politics and policies of the
defense of western Europe.
Daily Thought
So every man tells himself, all the long
day the story of his ego, canceling event
.nd truth, losing his' hold on time. Philip
Douglas MacArthur, Senator Kerr was one of the
most vigorous advocates of the President's de
cision. Senator Kerr's foreign policy is that "we
can prevent aggression without provoking world
war," and that . . . "we can establish perman
ent peace in the world through responsible co
operation with other nations."
Senator Kerr favors a program for unified
planning and development of river valleys, under
direction of federal and state agencies and without
the creation of a "fourth level of government."
He has voted for price and rent controls, for
reorganization of the Reconstruction Finance Corp
oration, for stronger anti-trust laws and for Hoover
commission plans to reorganize the government.
Senator Kerr has also fought the Taft-Hartley
labor law.
The Senator from Oklahoma has a long record
of devotion to the Democrat party, Jackson day
dinners and President Truman. He has been her
alded as a colorful figure stepping to the fore
front of the Democrat party. His Presidential
campaign is qualified in that he is seeking the
Democrat nomination only if President Truman
doesn't want it.
Whether of voting age or not, University stu
dents should hear Senator Kerr; should listen with
discretion to his remarks and ask questions, if
possible, of this candidate for the highest office of
the nation. R.R.
Policies Not Politics
The action of the University convocation com
mittee, in bringing Senators Kerr and Kefauver
to the campus, meantime keeping themselves and
their organization free rom political allignment
seems to be a highly commendable piece of work.
Dr. Carl Schneider, chairman of the Con
vocations committee, has enumerated five points
which is the committee policy on bringing political
speakers to the campus. Theory behind the policy
is that such speeches are educational.
Only the political candidate or his University
representatives are allowed to suggest to the
committee the name of a desired speaker. Only
candidates for national political office may be
considered for scheduling through the committee.
Some member of the faculty or administrative
staff must introduce the speaker who is to consider
current issues of national importance only. Classes
are not dismissed for these extra-scheduled con
vocations. The convocations committee met with student
and faculty requests for political speakers on the
caripus. They worked out a method whereby
the University itself could not be charged with
supporting any certain candidate for a national
office. At the same time they have supplied in
centive for greater and more informed political
action by students in the future.
Dr. Schneider, Dr. George Rosenlof, Dr. LeRoy
Laase, Dr. Frank Sorenson, Duane Lake, Julius
Cohen, Lynn Kunkel and Bob LaShelle have
done a job for which they should receive student
praise and thanks. R.R.

'Searching' Questions
Dear Editor:
This uropu- ta CaarpVl Wpftlc here

I J. J ; , ai J A I U
oil io tuning inese uayo. ni ure
end of the week we will try to
focus our thoughts toward a cam
pus "bases for unity." In view of
these thoughts I would like to
raise a few questions; and let you
as well as myseli think about
Is your faith any stronger now
than it was when you came to
the University? If it is it may be
that you are in the minority.
Why do I say this? 'Cause a
strong faith is one that is vital
and a vital faith is one that is
jelng practiced.
In answer to the above ques
tion one student said to me the
other night that many students
are afraid to think about build
ing a strong faith during college
days. I asked why and she replied:
"Because they feel that a strong
faith may hinder the frivolity of
eolleee life and students want to
be typical coed 'Bettys' or college
'Joes. Forgetting about religion is
n protection to their consciences.
But does a strong faith mean that
you have to wear a black velvet
sown and let your tace touen me.
floor? No I surely hope not a
strong faith is more than an etni
eal code.

and college "Joes" take a vital

urday night or into the classroom
with them on jvionaayr Keugiou
today is more than a department
of life it is all of life. Are we
really protecting our consciences
or are we just letting tnem sieep.'
Another student repnea:
"Definitely no I think it has
weakened mine." What an in
dictment, and this student's
statement could have been true.
Who makes up this campus
community? You do, I do, fac
ulty members, and other stu
dents. The atmosphere is only as
religious as we make it. Are
we searching for truth in our
classrooms or do we accept what
somebody else has said? Are we
disciplined students as far as stu
dent habits are concerned? Do
wc stand up for an ethical code
of conduct? (When I say ethical
code this is not by any means
a take-off on the common sub
ject of smoking and drinking.)
Do we have wholesome rela
tionships with the fellow next
door to use? Are we our brother's
keefer? Is there a brotherhood of
unity among greeks, independ
ents and faculty members? Is this
a united campus community or is
it divided?
Granted you can be religious
outside the student religious
houses but I ask the question, are
we? (I also ask the student houses,
are we being religious inside or
them.) Probably some of you don't
come to the student groups be
cause you feel that you don't and
can't get anything from them. This
could be true. It it is what are!

I suppose everyone has
their favorite story, so, per
haps a good way to start this
column would be to tell mine.
The small boy had just come
home from school and mother
proceeded to ask him what he
had done, during the day. The
young son replied that his
teacher had asked them where
they were born.
"Of course, you told her you
were born at Children's Hospi
