Brain Power
For Farmers
Brain power, not horse or mule
power, is what this country, will
need in the future, Chancellor Clif
ford Hardin told a farm audience
' at Hartdngton Tuesday.
Speaking b e f o r e the annual
Tanners' Day," Hardin said to
morrow's fanners must be better
-fanners than those on the farms
today. "They mill need better
training and more knowledge in
a greater number lecnmcai
"It used to be that we were
concerned with the horse or mule
power of the farms, be said.
"This is no longer true. The
Nebraska farmers of the future
must be entomologists, agricul
tural economists, animal nutrition
ists, agronomists, chemists, and
geneticists all wrapped up in
"In this country, ttie big job
is to develop brain power not only
for africulture but for all seg
ments of our society," Hardin
pointed out.
"Overall production per man in
the future in industry, business
end other occupations must be in
creased if this country is to main
tain its standard of living in a
time of rising population and with
a greater percentage of people in
the older-age bracket," Hardin
The farm audience was told that
the fob of developing brain' power
rests with the colleges and uni
versities. "To do the job will re
quire increased financial support.
Otherwise, deserving young men
and women who cannot be ab-,
sorbed in agriculture may be de-!
prived of the opportunity to de
velop the brain power bo vitally
needed by tomorrow's agricul
ture," be. concluded.

Student Union Construction

-'Ground will be broken for the
addition to the Union in the first
part of July," stated Mr. Duane
Lake, directing manager of the
The delay in the start of the 2
story building is due to the very
full Union activity calendar for
June. "This is one of the busiest
month's in the school year," Mr.
Lake said, "and we don't want to
do anything that might upset the
many events taking place then."
The University, because of the
enrollment increase expected in
the next 10 years, is in dire need
of a larger and better Student
Union and Mr. Lake said be
thought, "the addition was about
5 or 10 years overdue.
"The new addition will be com
pleted m the fall cf 1958," Mr.
Lake stated.
Labor Says Government
'Positive Instrument'
Labor looks upon government to
day as a much more positive in
strument in fulfilling its expecta
tions in life, Dr. Henry David, a
nationally known labor specialist
said Tuesday morning at the Uni
versity. He said this is in contrast to
labor's views a few years back
that government was a negative
instrument "used to keep the rules
equal in the game between labor
and business."
David, executive director" of the
National Manpower Council and
professor of economics at Colum
bia University, spoke on "What
Labor Wants from Government.
The visiting lecturer said that
labor also has put into practice a
"lot of rhetoric" which they only
expressed in the past, such , as
views on civil rights, labor rela
tion to educational institutions, and
labor's participation in the com
munity. "Both labor and business con
sider the role of government as
exactly the same, but different on
what government is supposed to
do, for whom, and at what cost,"
be explained.
Through the 1930's, he pointed
out, labor believed in a govern
ment of limited mission. "Labor
was unsympathetic to social se
curity, regulations for maximum
hours and minimum wages. It
wanted an area of freedom."
But now, he added, goverment
action is the key point of refer

The University of Colorado Stu

part proposal on its parking prob

President, Quigg NeVton, accord
ing to the University newepaper,
tlie Colorado Daily.
The first portion of the proposal
would ask for a $5 registration
fee for each car registered with
the University, establishment of
a Permanent Parking Committee
and guaranteed parking area for
each Boulder resident whose house
borders the University and does
not have sufficient off-Jtreet park

The tecond part of the resolu

the Permanent Parking Commis

solutions to the parking problem,
including a one-way street system
near the campus allowing angle
parking and the consideration of
possible underground facilities or

If approved, the parking commit

the, boys park when taking a girl
home from a date?" Captain Hurd
answered, "The boys should park
in the University parking lot behind
the boys dorm and walk the girls
home. If they cant park there,
they should park far enough away
from the ticketing area."
Captain Hurd also stated "At
this time the Police Department
has no available parking places
to promote. It isn't our job to solve
the parking problem, it is the
job of the University engineers to
provide these facilities."
To another question, "Why did
the Police Department start enforc
ing parking rules second semes
ter?" he replied, "We have been
enforcing this law all year except
now the ruling has to be enforced
because of public pressure. Com
plaints have been coming in from
all over Lincoln from people say
ing "If the students can double
park why can't we without getting
a ticket?"
Another question put to the Cap
tain was "Why do some police
men ticket cars when the boys
arrive at the car just as the police
man is writing out the ticket?"
Captain Hurd said, "The Chief
rules that if an officer starts writ
ing a ticket, he must finish it.
The officer wouldn't have started
writing the ticket unles there was
already a violation. Then the po
liceman has to finish the ticket and
present it to the owner or put
it on the car..'
He also emphasized the fact that
'the parking problem is bigger
than both of us".
John Jacobson, Judge of Muni
cipal Court, said Tuesday "that
all fines brought into my court are
fined five dollars plus costs. 16th
street carries traffic at 45 mph
and cars parked or double parked
create a traffic hazard. This haz
ard is so great it can't be tolerated
and has to be corrected."
"Last year the court didn't fine
students as much - as the other
citizens of Lincoln. The court tried
to create interest, but the prob
lem continued. There was no other
choice this fall except to enforce
the law against students ss well
as anyone eke,"

Chancellor Hardin, who is now
