Facts about the would-be center and the operation of its program are explained in a 19-page booklet prepared by the University, which will be used In the fund drive. Plea For Support In a plea for support from Nebraskans, an introductory message signed by Chancel lor Clifford Hardin and C. Y. Thompson, president of the Board of Regents, states: "The University solicits your Interest and support for this project in the firm belief that it is, by all odds, the greatest opportunity Nebras ka has had to extend the In fluence of education since the State wat founded." Continuing Education is de fined in the booklet as "a systematic effort to help peo ple make the most of their abilities amid changing times. Centers Aims "The importance of this ef fort has increased tremen dously in recent years. Here are some of the reasons why: "1) New methods, new techniques, and even new knowledge, are being intro duced much faster than ever before. . . an increasing num ber of people are finding it necessary to re-enforce their knowledge and training. "2) The older any success ful society grows, the more complex it becomes. . . the greater its need for the serv ices of people with training and educational backgrounds. " 3) The productive leader ship of the nation, m au fields, has recognized that the U.S. is indulging in a great waste of human ability . . . which the American peo ple simply cannot afford in view of the gains being made by international competitors. A program of continuing edu cation can avoid much of this waste by giving specific, sys tematic attention to: (a) Stimulating the desire of young people to continue their formal education; (b) Providing brief, con centrated, and recurring in structional and training courses for people who have not gone to college and for those who do not plan to go to college; (c) Attending the voca tional needs of people active ly engaged in professional, business, industrial govern mental and civic life; and (d) Utilizing the experi ence and talents of senior citizens who are bored with the retirement to which many of them have failed to adjust. "In comparing the Univer sity center to those already established at Michigan State and the University of Georgia, the booklet points out that it "differs in one major respect," in that "the Nebraska plan includes in structional programs for young people: short summer courses for those in high school and a variety of in struction for those out of school." The question, "Why Not Use State Funds?" is an swered by the booklet. "There are no state f u n a s available." Levy Fund An institutional building fund tax levy, set up by the legislature in 1947, originally intended as a 10-year pro gram was extended with lim its and "cannot be stretched to cover the center project," the booklet points out. Dean A. C. Breckenridge, assistant to the Chancellor, stated that the booklet is now being circulated and is 'available for the purpose of trying to explain the center. Gifts and pledges to the center may be made directly or through the University vminHatinn. 106 Love Memo rial Library. University of Nebraska. Pledges may be made payable over a tour year period beginning in 1959 the booklet stated.

See Page 3 in the Coliseum. Man-Made Device An authority on space trav el, Dr. Levitt has urged the U.S. to take the lead in launching a man-made device into space before Russia does so "with its possible tremen dous psychological repercus sion throughout the entire world". He proposes a satellite that would travel continuously around the earth at a height of 200 miles. Such a man made moon, he said, would provide many answers to questions scientists bound to the earth might take many years to solve. In addition to being consid ered one of the country's most respected astronomers, Dr. Levitt invented the world's first interplanetary timepiece to aid in charting journeys in to space. The device, known as the Hamilton Space Clock is de signed to determine compar ative passage of time by the day, hour, month and year on earth and on planets in outer space. "To all space explorers, the clock would be a matter of life or death," Dr. Levitt ex plains. "For instance, they would need it to time depar tuxes from earth in order to reach destined spots on anoth er planet during daylight hours, and at a suitable sea son. Also, it would be mighty handy in calculating the pre cise timing of their homeward journeys. Calculations This first inter-planetary clock has been designed for Mars since it is "the planet most likely to be the first vis ited by man once he has es caped the gravitational bond age of earth," according to Dr. Levitt. Astronomical calculations relating time on other planets could be made as well, mak ing provision for the differ ent times it takes each plan et to rotate, he said. Following Dr. Levitt's ad dress, an informal discussion will be held at 2 p.m. in the Student Union.

NUCWSTElection There will be a meeting of Nebraska University Council on World Affairs tonight at 7:30, according to Biff Keyes, president. Officers will be elected at the meeting, so everyone in NUCWA should attend, Keyes said. Tuesday, May 6, 1958 the Student Council, it was was the write-in candidacy of Shugrue Contests Election Dick Shugrue, when con tacted last evening, said h thought he would take action, today. This will give me time to study the procedure, h said. Shugrue seW; "This is an example of tht obvious mishandling of the election procedure which goes to demonstrate that a total revamping of the election pro cedure is in order. "Although George Porter was elected, the misinforma tion on the official ballot goes to demonstrate once again the urgent need for a revaluation ot our election procedures. "The democratic process which opens the path for qual ified write-in candidates is squelched by the present pro cedure and deprives electors of the opportunity of exercis ing meir tree judgment in an election. "The failure of the council either to know the candidates or to place them in their nro- per order on the official post er designating their name and college, is a third example of me Dungung of the procedure by the council. "Perhaps this mishandling should dictate first the re vamping of the election pro cedure and secondly a new election. "Personally I stand bv the right of the student to vote for any candidate he so choses who is in good standing in the university without be ing deprived of his democrat ic rights. We students have s h I a job ahead of us and must work together to make the Student Council the effective tool it should be in governing our lives."
