Dr. Earl F. Leininger of Mc Cook, president of the Nebraska State Medical Association, rec ommended moving the colleges to the Medical College site so a "healing arts" center could be established. Acting Chancellor John K. Sel leck said the plan involved more than merely moving the colleges and the students. Many courses, he pointed out, now taken by dental and pharmacy students ere offered in the College of Arts and Sciences. Under Leininger's plan, it would be necessary to. duplicate a- certain number of courses now offered on the city campus. "There would be a very con siderable capital expense to be borne as well," Selleck said. Dr. B. L. Hooper, dean of the College of Dentistry, and Dr. Jo seph B. Burt, dean of the Col lege of Pharmacy, both cited the duplication of facilities that would be needed to replace the arts courses on the Omaha cam pus. The building committee, Dr. Eurt said, studied the question four or five years ago. It was determined at that time that the two colleges needed to be located in Lincoln. Dr. Leininger, speaking in Omaha, said he did not official ly represent the opinion of the State Medical Association, but he has had a long interest in the consolidation of colleges devoted to healing. In the meantime, plans for a new $75,000 Pharmacy College, to be built on the city campus in Lincoln, are under way. Lenten Services Set For Tonight Lenten Services will be held Wednesday at St. Paul's Metho dist Charjel at 7:15 p.m. The YWCA and YMCA are eponsoring the service, which will be conducted by Dr. Frank Court. He will speak on, "Christ, the Hope of the World." "Preludio," by Bach, will be presented by Marilyn Ander ron, and Joyce Laase will Rive the prayer. Kathleen Wilson will sing, "All in the April Eve ning," by Diack, and a dance Interpreting Psalm 121 will be given by Peggy Larson, Jacy Mathiesen, Mary Mong and Di ane Peterson. Ushers for the service will be Carroll Goll and Lawrence Clay. Nancy Timmons is in charge of general program arrangements. I (.Sf'.s ' J v The Outside World By WILLIE DE8CH Staff Writer Ike Says War Unlikely WASHINGTON In a radio and television broadcast, President Eisenhower told the nation and the free world that Russia is unlikely to risk war so long as this country Is prepared to strike back with atomic power. However, the President added, that the American people must be ready in case Russia does decide to plunge the world into a hydrogen-bombage holocaust. Eisenhower said that the FBI is the nation's great bulwark gainst Communist infiltration. He added that while Communists in this country are dangerous and must be pinpointed, their number is minute and is often exaggerated. Governor Calls Special Session LINCOLN Gov. Robert Crosby is planning to call a special session of the Legislature to meet April 20 to consider the tax issue after the Legislative Council on Taxation publicly urged him to do so. This call will restrict the session "to proposals for amend ments to the Constitution affecting taxation and revenue," said the Governor. This apparently ruled out passing of new legislation or bills correcting mistakes in the law. It would also seem to rule out consideration of a sales or income tax. If the Legislature fails, the Governor said that he had the right to circulate petitions. He said that he is determined that the people shall have the chance to choose their own tax program. onciisfr guished Teaching at the 26th annual Honors Convocation. . Lancaster has been teaching at the University for 24 years. He was selected as "representa tive of outstanding teaching at the University." "Anyone who gets this award experiences a certain amount of embarrassment; he must submit himself to the wisdom and au thority of his superiors," Lan caster commented. He was ob viously relucttant to create any undue publicity in connection with the award. LANCASTER WAS selected by the Chancellor's Award Com mittee from nominations sub mitted by each college. The re cipient is a member of the Col leges of Arts and Sciences. W. W. Putney, vice president of the Foundation presented the award. In presenting it he said: "This new Distinguished Teaching Award is made to a teacher who manifests clearly those elusive qualities which at tach to intellectual leadership and the stimulation of learning. "It goes without saying that within the company of the Uni versity's excellent teachers there are many who are qualified for recognition. To focus attention on the importance of good teach ing, however, nominations had to be made and one final selec tion tietermined." In submitting Lancaster's name, his colleagues said: "He has shown an attitude toward higher education which can best be described as the humble approach to learning. His students are not taught in a take-it-or-leave-it manner. They are encouraged to teach them selves, and they enter freely into the student-teacher relation. "WITH THE faculty, Profes sor Lancaster has been equally respected as one who has a mas tery of his subject, the field of political science. Yet he does not dogmatize; he stimulates. The general esteem of his col leagues may be measured by this fact: that he was chairman of the department of political sci enc for seven years, against his own wishes. "Professor Lancaster would be embarrassed by being called the best teacher in the College of Arts and Sciences. It would be impossible for us to select such a person. But we are quite sure that after 24 years of teach ing in this University, Lancaster has set a standard of perform ance we can properly exhibit as that of an outstanding teacher." t LANCASTER CAME to the University in 1930 from Wes leyan University, Middletown, Conn. He is a graduate of Ohio Wesleyan Univeiity and earned his Master of Arts at the Uni versity of Illinois and his Ph.D. at the University of Pennsyl vania. The political scientist was a visiting professor at Yale Uni versity in 1948-49, at the Uni versity of California at Berkeley in 1949-50 and -at the University of Hawaii in the summer of 1950. Lancaster is the author of "State Supervision of Municipal Indebtedness" and "Government in Rural America." In addition he has written many articles in professional journals.

Lj Li tM refiiiiifii fSCIISSee 0 mLElBi Resources Stressed By Honors Convocation Speaker The United States, in order to maintain superiority over Com munist countries, must excel in the quality of her human and educational resources, Dr. James A. McCain, president of Kansas State College, said at the 2Gth annual Honors Convoca tion Tuesday. In discussing "The Premium on Excellence," McCain said the United States must maintain this excellence for three reasons: the complex character of public is sues, the war between demo cratic and totalitarian ideology and the new means of mass communication. McCAIN SAID the United States could be on the verge of a cultural revival much like the renaissance if this genera tion so decided. He cited the increased number of presenta tions of the fine arts, the in creased purchasing power of the American public and the rising number of cultural and contem porary works offered by radio, television and cheap printing facilities. He said, however, that cheap sensationalism in movies and "vulgar, witless, and dull" comic books and "true loves" were causing these principles to de generate. Specific leadership and humane qualities must be taught to citizens and civic leaders of the United States, he said. "THE STRENGTH of a nation is judged by its people and by its natural resources." McCain said. . He explained that Russia SuETDO gets micert Thyirsdfav Easter Program To Include University Singers will pre sent their annual Easter concert of twelve selections Thursday at 8 p.m. in the Union Ballroom.

Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in Love Memorial Auditorium, he will speak on "Future Direction of American Education." Dr. Best or's recent book on "Educational Wastelands" and his article on "Aimless Education" makes this subject especially interesting for persons who have some interest in the matter of educational problems. Dr. Bestor's book has been described as "A straight thinking, hard-hitting book on the kind of education needed in today's world." "The Nature of Historical Judgments" will be the subject Dr. Bestor will discuss on the forty-second annual program of the Nebraska History and Social Studies Association. The Asso ciation's sessions include a dinner meeting Friday at the Lindell Hotel where Dr. Stanley Ross, assistant professor of history, will speak on the Mexican Revolu tion and a luncheon at the Uni versity Club on Saturday where Dr. Bestor will speak.

In order to maintain superiority over Russia, there fore, the United States must have a "better quality rather than a larger number of people." "Two advantages that we en joy over totalitarian nations count in large measure for the superior quality of our human resources. These are our free dom of inquiry and our system of universal education," McCain said. "FREEDOM OF inquiry, to follow the search for truth wherever it leads, has given us maximum benefits from human intelligence.

Regents Board Praised For Academic Freedom Stand The Scottish Rite Educational and Welfare Association has commended the Board of Regents on its academic freedom stand. The association unamimously adopted a resolution which noted that "our institutions of higher learning are constantly called upon to explore, to investigate and to express conclusions which are not infrequently at variance with the currently accepted con cepts, and, in the process, fre quently encounter opposition and attempts at repression." The resolution referred to a statement made by the regents after some Farm Bureau Feder ation members criticized farm price supports views expressed by professor of agricultural eco nomics C. Clyde Mitchell. The regents' statement said a professor must have "the right, as a professional person, to free dom of research and to publica tion of the results thereof," and "the right, as a professional per son, to free and thorough ex pression in the classroom." At the same meeting, the ed ucational and welfare group for the tenth consecutive year gave $1,000 to the University Founda tion for scholarship purposes. Guest speaker was Dr. Milo Bail, president of Omaha Uni versity.

Sears believes water to be tha foremost area of concern in the conservation field. He pointed for emphasis to the findings of recent studies which indicate that forrested areas will retain as much as 500 inches of water as compared to farm land which will hold one-quarter of that amount. Retension of large portions of land in native prairie, Sears said, would help to conserve large amounts of water. He said the reason for this type of water conservation lay in the fact that "natural prairie is adjusted to the climate." Although the United State's natural resources supply is not "self-sufficient," Sears said, there is a "tremendous margin of safety." "We should take ad vantage of this margin to get our house in shape," he said. i X V- 1 1 V,. V 'A, f ! f -It 'ay hi 14'
