that the United States is now in a
new era of decision concerning
what type of school system it needs.
Addressing an All-Teachers Col

in place of Miss Waurine Walker,
NEA president who was unable to
come because of illness, listed four
areas in which education is faced
with great new responsibilities
manpower shortages, rapid indus

communications, and international
Recognizins the nation's current
manpower shortage, Wilson said
that by 1975 there may well be a
far more serious shortage, particu
larly acute in science and manage
ment. Education, he asserted, will
be called upon to train students
tc fill these needs.
More attention, he said, must be
paid to the "brighter students."
But at the same time, Wilson
added, "We must not ignore the
students of lesser ability; we must
strive to bring everyone up to his

Automation is here, he said, and

Dr. Clifford Hardin is now com
pleting his first year as Chancellor
of the University. He was unani
mously appointed May 7, 1954, by
the Board of Regents.
Hardin said in a special Sum
mer Nebraskan interview that the
people of Nebraska are "genuinely
interested in the problems and
progress of the University." From
meeting and talking with "literally
thousands of Nebraska citizens,"
Hardin declared they want the
University "to become one of the
great institutions of higher learn
ing in the Great Plains area." Ne-
braskans are confident in the
state's agricultural and industrial
future, he said.
Concerning the University staff,
Hardin stated, "It is my firm
conviction that the desires of the
people of this state and the hopes
and ambitions of our staff are be
ing correlated into an effort for
a still-better University."
Foreseeing early accomplish
ment of that goal, he said the task
will not be difficult because "our
staff and. the people of Nebraska
have laid a solid foundation" upon
which to build
Hardin listed major problems
facing the University. Prices of
equipment and supplies have gone
up, he said, because of "an ex
panding economy." There is also
increased competition for pros
pective faculty members, he said. ,

1947 'and received his Masters De

frcm the University. He was a po
litical science instructor at the
University for a short time. He
was born in Oakland in 1903.
Peterson's direction of "Opera

tional pattern and his supervision
of the 1952 floods on the Missouri
River were incorporated into civil
defense planning for natural dis
aster relief planning. He was later
named to the National Civil De

An accelerated birth rate since
World War II, Hardin said, will
magnify the University's problems.
"The impact of this coming tidal
wave of students," he asserted,
"will also oblige all institutions of
higher learning to re-examine the
structure of their curricula to meet
the demands of a changing society
not only in Nebraska but in the
nation and world as well."
He said some problems "must
necessarily be put before the
citizens of the state" by the Uni
versity. Among them, Hardin said,
is financial support necessary to
meet competition for a good faculty
and construction of an adequate
physical' plant. ' ' : : ; n -
