Bern Exclaims Satellite
A University dean said Sunday
that in his opinion the launching
of the first satellite by the Rus
sians doesn't show a failure in
American science and technology
to keep pace.
Dean Walter Militzer of the Col
lege of Arts and Sciences believes
that the "furor over the satellite
is the result of our overestimat
ing the Russians and underesti
mating ourselves.
"All we know is that the satellite
Is in outer space. Why don't we
give our scientists a chance. Per
haps, they are working on many
things which eventually may be
worth more to us than the satel
lite." Speaking on the University's
weekly radio program, "Your Uni
versity Speaks," the physical sci
entist also regretted that the pub
lic considers the launching as a
part of a race.
"If we had concentrated all our
time and scientific resources on
the satellite and the Russians had
done the same which they might
well have done then perhaps
they have won a race. But I don't
think we have done this."
He felt that we could have looked
at the launching more calmly

Migration to Missouri Universi

ed as an out-of-town overnight for
women students, according to
Karen Dryden, AWS vice president.
Anyone leaving before Friday
must have a special permission
slip from their housemother. Also
women students should check the
Dean of Women's office to see if
their parents have given them per
mission for 'migration.
Students leaving elsewhere this
weekend will be charged with an
out-of-town overnight, Miss Dry
den said.
Every woman student who goes
to migration must be back by 11
p.m. Sunday. There is no permis
sion for a Monday return.
A downtown rally will com

p.m., according to Bill McQuistin,

The rally will start at Carillon
Tower and will proceed to 16th

street to 15th, 15th to O street,
0 street to 13th. At that corner
the rally parade will stop and the

Migration to Missouri Universi

been officially endorsed by the

not be responsible for any acci

said that Student Council has en

and I don't want to talk it down.
But we have had many great
achievements in science and in the
triumph of human mind over mat
ter which, to me, are just as im
portant as the satellite, including
the invention of the microscope or
the first aerial voyage of man."
As another example, he listed the
discovery of America by Colum
bus. "In his days Columbus was op
posed in his ideas that the earth
Was round. The beUef that the earth
was flat was actually a national
law. Here Columbus was with an
idea which many people opposed
and thought was foolish; yet he
embarked upon his idea that the
earth was round and made it
Dean Militzer pointed out that
the theory of the satellite has been
known for 300 years, when Sir
Isaac Newton developed the theory
of gravity.
"If we had taken all the avail
able resources and placed them In
the hands of the members of the
University physics department,
they, too, could have launched the
satellite just as well as the Rus
sians." "

Regents Approve
Public Health Aid
Even the Nebraska swine popu
lation may have "runny noses"
from the spreading Asian flu.
To check the possibility, Univer
sity researchers are undertaking
a project to determine if Asian
flu virus has the capacity to es
tablish itself in swine.
A $5,060 grant from the U.S.
Public Health Service will finance
the work. The funds were accepted
Saturday morning by the Board
of Regents.
Dr. George Young, chairman of
the animal husbandry department,
said that Asian flu would not have
a serious or widespread effect if
it did penetrate swine. Studies
show, he said, that flu viruses
cause only a small part of res
piratory illnesses among swine.
However, he explained, the most
important consideration is the po
tential threat to man if he Asian
flu virus should enter swine, lay
dormant, and then break out some
10 to 30 years later.
In 1955, after extensive studies,
Dr. Young and Prof. Norman Un
derdahl reported that 10 per cent
of some 1,600 midwestern swine
from 1949 through 1953 carried a
strain of the virus which caused
the 1919 flu epidemic.
He said, "This evidence of per
