Inn of these feelings and ulti
mate break-down of the repres
sion produces a neurotic.
Dr. Mowrer, through his re
search nt the University of Il
linois has come up with what he
calls a theory of neurosis that can
be understood by the layman.
The reasons for modern mental
troubles is exactly the reverse of
what the Freudian psychologists
maintain, he said. People do not
become neurotic because of anxi
ety and depression arising hrough
sex or aggression.
Dr. Mowrer admitted his the
ory "is not the most fashionable
thing today," by saia, tnrougn
Freudian methods man is left free
to lose his sense of obligation and
responsibility and to ignore his
"Man leaves himself free to do
as he likes," Dr. Mowrer noted,
"when he follows Freudian prin
ciples. However, anxiety and de
pression are always potentially
helpful things if we learn to listen
to them and not to ignore them."
Dr. Mowrer's essential argu-mf-nt
with his life and work in
the psychiatric field is aptly con
tained in his remark that he would
have attained peace of mind easier
and sooner if some psychiatrist
or analyst had said to him,
"Young man, there isn't a thing
wrong with you that a little hon
esty won't cure."

The budget proposed by the University is $16,246,003.56. an increase of S3.745.134
over the 1951 appropriation.

NU Medical School Issue
Advanced By Unicameral
A bill designed to provide a $6
million building fund for the
University College of Medicine
was advanced by the Unicameral
Monday despite two fundamental
amendments and nearly two hours
of hot debate.
Senators Dwight Burney and
Terry Carpenter presented the
amendments which were both de
feated decisively after bitter dis
Carpenter asked that the Legis
lature change the bi LB 211,
from the committee-amended
one-fourth mill to a one-third mill
levy as it was it originally pro
posed. The Revenue Committee
had ammended it after agreement
with University officials, to pro
vide a one-fourth levy with a limit
of $6 million.
The money would come from
the present 1.1 institutional build
ing fund levy. The University re
ceives .4 of that levy.
Burney's bill called for a "gen
eral overhauling" of the present
tor proposed a complete revision
of the fund leaving out the mili
tary department levy altogether
He said that his plan would in
crease the University's levy by
"The College of Medicine is still
a part of the University isn't it?"
Several senators, including C.
H. Leibers and Charles Tvrdik
authors of the original Medical
School bill, contested Burney's
proposal. Tvrdik explained that
"every nickel" of the money the
University, and all other state in
stitutions will receive tinder the
building levy lias been planned
Any" change, lie said, would
make all those plans useless.
Carpenter's request was voted
down after he made "urgent
pleas" to have the Unicameral
consider his points. He wanted the
mill levy boosted back to .33, as
originally requested by the Uni
versity and as originally written
by Leibers and Tvrdik.
The committee, however, told
the Legislature that University
officials had agreed to commit
tee action cutting the levy back
to .25. "They can't spend the
money any faster anyway," chair
man Carl Vogel said.

the State Legislature held hearings Mondav over the Uri!
The Governor's recommendation is $14,500,000.
He pointed out that the com
mittee change kept the maximum
money to be gained at $6 million
as the original bill stated.
Tvrdik said that he, as one of
the original sponsors, agreed to
Carpenter, however, maintained
that the need at the College of
Medicine was vital and the money
should be brought into the Uni
versity treasury as quickly as
possible. He said that the .33 levy
would bring the $6 million two
years sooner than the .25 ame-
mendment would be able to do.
The time saved this way, he
said, would be felt in the state
because improved medical facili
ties would be available sooner.
opponents disagreed, argumg
that the time schedule set up by
tne university would not allcw
expenditure faster than the .25
levy would bring the money in.

Selleck pointed out that in 1946
natural gas used by the three
plants on the Lincoln and Omaha
campus cost 16 cents per 100 cu
bic feet. At the present time the
gas costs 27 A cents.
Also because of inflation, he
said, University teachers have less
money to buy groceries than they
did a few years ago.
Selleck showed charts compar
ing the University of Nebraska to
other universities of the Big
Seven Conference. The charts in
dicated that the University stands
at a midpost among other univer
sities in regard to salaries. Six
years ago the University stood at
the bottom and considerably be
low other universities.
The University also stands at
a midpoint concerning the number
of instructors employed, and is
fifth in total financial support
from all funds.
Selleck explained to the Bud
get Committee where the in
creased portion of the proposed
budget would be. The fields of
expenditure would be:
1. Salary adjustments amount
ing to an increase of 8 per cent
over the 1951 appropriation;
2. Fixed obligation including an
improved retirement program,
funds for the Nebraska Psychi
atric Hospital in Omaha, clerical
salary adjustments and improve
ments of buildings and grounds;
3. Basic needs, including in
creased costs of operation and sal
