Ag Demand
The president of the National
Reclamation Association charged
in Lincoln Friday afternoon that
the critics of the reclamation pro
gram "do not realize the demand
on agriculture which is being
brought about by the ever in
creasing population."
Guy Jackson of Anahuac, Tex.,
told the Nebraska Water Confer
ence at the University, that "these
critics talk long and loud about
'surpluses, when in truth and fact
they are 'reserves.' "
He said these 'reserves are
needed by us to keep our domi
nant position in this world of na
tions the same as a reserve of
airplanes, guns, ammunitions, and
The concluding ' - cer at the
two-day conference, Mr. Jackson
explained that during the past 35
years, there has been no material
increase in the total crop land
agreage in the U.S.
"Lands brought into production
during that period through recla
mation, drainage, and clearing
have been approximately offset by
lands that have gone cut of pro
duction due to withdrawal to non
agricultural uses, erosions, and de
terioration." He reported that good land is
being taken out of agricultural pro
duction at the rate of about l,
8CK),000 acres per year.
Jackson sees a complete bal
ance of supply and demand by
1962,"even with the improved
seeds, farming methods, and fer
tilizers together with the substitu
tion of motor power in lieu of
horse and mule power."
He continued; "Some of the new
agricultural land needed for our
growing population will come from
the 17 western states. The primary
limiting factor is availability of wa
ter, so we must learn to conserve
and use every gallon."
Jackson pointed out that the pri
mary and ultimate purpose of rec
lamation is irrigation "nothing but
But, he added, "reclamation can
survive only with the help of rev
enue derived from a by-product
function Hie generation of hydro
electric power.
"Without that incidental source
of by-product revenue, reclamation
could not continue and the re
sultant effects upon the economy
of the western half of the U.S.
would be incalcuable but disas
trous." Final 'Pet Luck'
The final Ag campus "Pot Luck
With the Profs", will be held
March 17, accreting to Burt Weica

Health Coverage?
A? CI Students Okay'
Insurance Program
Student opinion on the new health
insurance program put into opera
tion at the .University this semester
is favorable, according to a straw
vote taken by the Daily Nebraskan.
The plan was developed to cover
100 per cent of the medical. ex
penses which might face students.
The bid by Mutual Health and Ac
cident Company of Omaha was ac-
cpeted by the University adminis
tration, according to Ben Loudon,
personnel and information officer.
The University's policy protects
students normally "in between"
on family coverage plans, and will
be a definite help, to young mar
ried students since coverage can
be extended to include the imme
diate family, according to Ben Pat
terson of Mutual of Omaha.
Ordinarily students over 18 are
out of the range of family policies,
he added.
Most of the students interviewed
by the Daily Nebraskan thought
the low cost of the program its'
best feature. "The price is right,"
said a senior engineering student.
Others thought the insurance pro
gram will cover accidents and ill
nesses they would not normally
be protected against.
At least one fraternity has urged
its members participating in intra
mural athletics to take out poli
cies. A number of others are plan
ning to do the same.
One woman student, a sopho-'
more in Teachers College, thought
the plan "a very sound idea," but
said she already had similar cov
erage in a regular policy.
"If it weren't for that I'd take it," ,
she said. This was the same cir
cumstance with a few other stu
dents. A junior in Arts and Sciences
said he had taken out a policy part-:
ly because he was "accident I
and partly because the
Ex-President In Omaha: '
Reporter Quizzes Truman;
Copy Editor
"I am in favor of federal aid for
all college and univerisities and
hope to .vte this granted in the
near future," said former Presi
dent of the-United States, Harry
Truman 'in an exclusive interview
with The Daily Nebraskan.
Mr. Truman has a steadfast
policy of never granting private
interviews but decided to make
an exception in this case because
it was for a student newspaper.
When asked the question,
"Should 18-yearold's be allowed
to vote?", he replied, "In my opin
ion 18-y ear-old's should not be al
lowed to vote until they have
reached the age of 21 because
too many of them lack the ability
to vote intelligently before, that
He qualified this statement by
stating "All students should attain
as much knowledge as possible
during their college career. If they
are specializing in certain fields,
students should take advantage of
the great opportunities available
to them today so they will become
better citizens in the future."
At the scheduled press confer
ence later in the presidential suite
at the Sheraton-Fontenelle Hotel
in Omaha, Mr. Truman was asked
pertinent questions pertaining to
events of national importance by
local and national news agencies.
When asked bis opinion of the
present foreign policy, he cleverly
evaded the direct question by an
swering, "Every president has his
own idea of how foreign policy
