IE-Week Dedicated
To Dean Hoy Green
Special Staff Writer
The E-Week Board has an
nounced that this year's Engineer's
Week, April 25 and 26, will be ded
icated to Roy Green, retiring Dean
of the College of Engineering and
Dean Green graduated from the
University in 1914 with a B.S. in Ci
vil Engineering. He got his Ms. in
C. E. at Columbia University and
then taught at Texas A. & M. for
four years, where he attained the
rank of professor.
In 1920, Dean Green came back
to Nebraska and founded Western
Laboratories, a consulting engi
neering firm, of which he was pres
ident and manager until 1943.
During this time, his influence
spread throughout the state He
had a part in the design and plan
ning of most of the major highway
and airport construction done in
these years. During the war years,
he worked closely with the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, Mis
souri River Division.
Mr. Green was a strong promoter
of the State Licensing Law, which
passed in 1937. This law provides
for a State Board of Examiners for
Engineers and Architects, whereby
engineers obtain their professional
license. Dean Green has served as
secretary or chairman of the board
ever since.
In 1943, Mr. Green became a
teacher again. He taught civil en
gineering courses at the Univer
sity until 1945. He then became
Dean of the College of Engineer
ing and Architecture.
Many things have changed since
Dean Green took over as chief ex
ecutive of the engineering school,

During W. W. II, enrollment was
low, but in the postwar years, the
returning veterans swelled the stu
dent body to an all time high.
Many problems arose, but under
the Dean's capable leadership,
they were solved and a record num
ber of engineers were graduated
with no decline in the quality of
their instruction. .
Dean Green has always had a
great personal interest in this stu

own time to counseling and helping
young engineers. This was espe
cially evident at the outbreak of
the Korean conflict, when student
attitude became very poor because
of the knowledge that they might
be called to fight at any time
Dean Green spent many evenings
counseling and combatting this
inititative-dulling attitude.
Physical additions to the college
in the last few years include Fer
guson Hall and the renovation of
several other buildings.'
The Pean's influence is felt dur
ing college life and also after grad
uation. He has served on the En
gineering Council for Professional
Development Accreditment Com
mittee and the Committee on Stu
dent Selection. He is active in the
American Society of Engineering
All graduate engineers who work
in Nebraska meet him again when
they face the State Board of Exam
iners. Practicing engineers are also
interested in the large number of
professional papers which Mr.
Green has written.
E-Week is the primary activity
of the Egineering College during
the year. It is designed to show
the public the applications - and
influences of engineering in every
day life and to give students a
chance to apply what they learn
in the classroom, the main attrac
tion is "Open House," featuring
displays made by the students.
This year, the displays and cel
ebrations have a new purpose.
They will emphatically express the
appreciation of the College of En
gineering and Architecutre students
for the work, interest, and leader
ship so unselfishly given to them
by their Dean Roy Green.

et, which is not a separate issue
but part of the general problem
of the Nebraska tax system. .
The tax base in the state is too
narrow to provide adequate reve
nue for all state activities and
the University must suffer with
the rest of the state. Before the
University can be provided with
sufficient revenue, the tax base
must be broadened, Miss Jones

"I oppose the measures to allow
18-year-olds to vote. Most 18-year-olds
are no more qualified to vote
than the majority of their elders;
the quality of the electorate will
not be improved by the addition of
more poorly qualified members.
Voting is not a return for services
rendered, nor a right which can
be demanded. It is a privilege
which must be earned," she stated.
Miss Jones also commented on
the parking problem of the Uni
versity. She said it is a job for
the students to solve, not the Uni
versity. The job of the University
is to educate its students and its
obligation does not extend to park
ing lots.
The University's job is education
and its function is to transcend
the values of society. Administra
tion, faculty and students should
recognize it, for the University has
been sadly failing in its duties, she
When the administration becomes
more concerned with the morals of
the students than their education,
when the students . become more
concerned with the IFC officers
than the imaginative consideration
of learning then a University is
no longer worthy of the name, Miss
Jones added.
George Moyer
George Moyer, copy editor fo the
Daily Nebraskan, member of the
debate team, NUCWA, YMCA,
member of Kappa Sigma and a
sophomore in Arts and Sciences
stated that he does not favor a
sales tax.
The present tax system of the
state of Nebraska is neither fair
or equitable system and the tax
base of the state should be broad
ened by the institution of a state
income tax, he added.
"On the parking problem of the
University, I don't believe cars are
required for freshman and sopho
more students," Moyer said.
"The state of Nebraska is cur
rently suffering drought conditions
and although I believe the Univer
sity need.s an increase of funds, I
believe they should also look into
this problem realistically in the
view of the problems outstate," he
Moyer said he believes his ex
perience in the past two years on
the University debate team has
qualified him for the job of lieu
tenant governor. Ht also added
that if he is elected, "I won't can
the governor every morning to
see if he had died."
