cellorship duties July 1, re
viewed the accomplishments -of
the past year and predicting fu
ture problems as a result of the
up-turn in our national birth

University will be bulging at the
seams not only with students,
but with problems, space prob
lems." Challenging the alumni at
tending the luncheon he added:
"The thinking that controls the
destiny of this University is not
done in the Chancellor's office.
It is not done by the Board of'
Regents. It is done by the people
of Nebraska. It is my opinion
that you can spark the thinking
of our people. If a spark is
to be lighted in Nebraska, it
will be by you: the alumni and
close friends of the University.
That is another way of saying
that the choice is yours.
