Montgomery Lecture:
Noyes Stresses Relationship
Between Government, Science
Dr. W. Albert Noyes, Jr., dean
of the Graduate College at
Rochester University, Monday
evening cautioned that the future
of science and technology in
America '"depends above all other
things on sound government prac-tices.-"
And, he said, that despite a
large volume of "fine scientific
work in government laboratories,
it behooves all of us to recognize
that in many respects the situa
tion is not so good."
Dr. Noyes delivered the first
of three Montgomery lectures, en
titled "'Science on the National
and InterriBtional Scenes." Dr.
Noyes xplained that c e rt a in

The consultant to the Atomic
Energy Commission from 1948-53
said it is wishful thinking to pre
tend that the government's role
will ever diminish.
He said it was quite understand
able that the government has trou

Another factor, he said, which
has hurt scienitfic work in govern

Turning to the clearance pro

Dr. Noyes -explained that Amer
ica's system of education, "'if we
do not allow it to die of malnu
trition, is better geared to the
modern technological world than
any other.
Pointing out that about two
thirds to three quarters of univer
sity research is today supported
by government contracts and
grants, he said there are dangers
in this particular type of system.
He said that '"the universities
had led into activities which
may not belong on university
campuses. The type of re
search not well suited to training
students and to encourageing schol
arly work by faculty members
should be left for industry and
for government."
Dr. Noyes explained that the
operation of research in industry
"is such as to tend to make the
large corporation grow larger and
to place the small -corporation un
der some handicap.
"'This should be looked upon as
not due to the innate wickedness
of individuals and -corporations but
to something which is more or less
inevitable. The small company
with the right men, the right ideas,
and it must be admitted, with a
little luck can still crash through
and make its pile."

He then continued that be
cause of this science has a very
noticable effect upon the course
of government policies.
Dr. Noyes said that science and
technology changes our way of
life, a good example of this being
the automobile and the effect it
has produced upon civilization.
"The development of intercon
tinental missile can change the
whole philosophy of war," said
Dr. Noyes. "An atomic bomb that
can fly 5000 miles by itself is
bound to bring a great change,"
he said.
"Those that believe that sci
ence has no bearing on govern
ment are the people that I am in
conflict with," he stated.
The leaders of our nation should
have a knowledge of science since
it does so greatly concern us to

Shorn Enthusiasm
Nebraska Staff Writer
One of the most pleasant ex
periences I have had in a long
time was attending the 1956 Co
Ed Follies presentation.
It had the refreshing quality of
enthusiasm throughout, the excit
ing flavor of originality and the
presentation revealed a vast, un
tapped potential of talent on the
University campus.
I will not venture a guess as to
the ultimate victor in the com
petition, although I shall entertain
my own private opinions, but I
would say that every person who
participated in the presentation de
serves an appelation for its un
deniable excellence.
One cannot criticize the Co-Ed
Follies production as one would
a theatrical production, I would
be the last to hold it to so high a
fstandard, for this was not an ""ar
tistic" venture but rather an en
tertainment venture; and as pure,
unadulterated entertainment i t
succeeded admirably.

Vaccine Plan Studied
The House of Delegates of the Nebraska State Medical Associatiaa
Sunday voted to recommend -discontinuance of Nebraska's 100 per cent
state distribution of free Salk polio vaccine to the public paid by federal
grants in aid.
A meeting of the State Polio Advisory Council is expected to be
called at the state capitol at 7:30 Wednesday to act on the recom

Salk injection pointing out the socialized medicine aspects of the federal
government's buying vaccine for free distribution.

Perhaps one point should be
brought out, however, and that
point is the length of the show.
Three hours is a long time ta sit
in one place, even when one is
enjoying every minute.
In general I felt every skit,
every traveler act and every
curtaii. act displayed originality,
spontaneity and a whole-hearted
desire to present the best possible
show in the time allowed.
This is a fine thing to bring out
in college students, and ft is a
thing often neglected in this coBega.

audience viewing it.
