Best Travel-Study Combine
Object of European Seminar
Program Designed to Eliminate 'Wandering
By Wynn Smithberger
"Renaissance 1959' the ti
tle given to a traveling sum
mer seminar In Europe, rep
resents the efforts of two or
ganizations, the British Assn.
for Cultural Exchange and the
Netherlands Office for For
eign Student Relations, to find
the best possible combination
of travel abroad and study
"The 65-day program was
planned to eliminate the su
perficiality of simply touring
(and tearing) about Europe,"
said Berndt Westermann,
president of the Netherlands
In a letter to Dean of Arts
and Sciences Walter Militier,
Westermann added that it of
fers an itinerary covering
some of the key spots of Eu
rope, lengthy stays in each
country visited, and a subject
for which Europe offer a

ia high schools. Shield said
he gets to know his students
fairly well..
"You get the feeling that
yon are talking to actual, spe
cific students, not just a cam
era," the art instructor said.
Nebraska's experiment in
telecourses is unique. Finan
ced largely by the Ford Foun
dation. KUON and the Exten
sion division unite efforts to
bring to classrooms that
would otherwise not have such
courses, algebra, Spanish.a rtv
geometry, physics, chemistry
and general mathematics.
Other states offer television
courses. Other states have

only in Nebraska do students
take their instruction from
television and then do corre
spondence assignments which
are sent in to the extension
j Lew Rhodes, one of the two
director-producers of the pro
grams, described the situation
as one where a student has
three persons helping him.
I The TV teacher prepares the
material and presents it.
A different person grades the
material which is sent in to
the Extension div ision.
Then, in the classroom, a
supervisor, usually another
teacher, though not of that
particular subject, is present
to do administrative work.
With no hesitation, Rhodes
calls the TV staff of teachers
"the best."
"There is no sense putting
mediocre teacher on televi
sion." Preparation Time
The system as used at
KUON enables the TV teach
er to spend much more time
on preparation of material
than he could in a classroom
situation, Rhodes said.
Last year was the first year
in the Ford Foundation study
of methods of bringing better
instruction to the schools of
the nation.
Results are still very
sketchy, but Rhodes said
there had been no negative re
sults from the television-cor-
purchased for the
tion in England and on the
continent, tips, entrance fees
for sightseeing included in the
itinerary and four special per
formances will be included in
the tour price of $1155.
Anthony L. Crowe, Ph.D.,
Director of Studies and an Ox
ford history graduate, will
lead the seminar, assisted by
Joseph Acheson, painter and
art historian, and a Dutch stu
dent guide.

Fashion Scenes
Bulky, Casual Styles Invade Closets
As Fall Weather Overtakes NU
By Sondra Whalen
Fall and winter arrived on the campus
fashion scene early this year.
University coeds have donned skirts and
sweaters for daytime wear as a fulltime
practice now, although afternoons are still
likely to be warm.
Sweaters Grow
That old favorite the sweater has grown
this year, not up but down. Both sweaters
and blouses reach the hipline, and the
style in both calls for a bulky, casual look.
The chemise has not disappeared on col
lege campuses, but is more popular than
last y ear. The extreme chemise has under

Blue's the Thing
Blue is the color of the year, as coeds
emphasize new startling color combina

being seen everywhere. Plaids have
reached all time popularity, especially in

The plaids are big and bulky, many of
them in a blanket material and weave.
Blouses are being worn outside skirts,

An employe of the Uni

has succumbed to the man

which is set at 65.
"It's the people at the

"After a while, the money
is just like worthless pieces
of paper."
Her boss, Comptroller Jo
seph Soshnik, estimates that

Stressing the closeness felt
by students and instructors,
Rhodes told of a student in a
Hagerstown, Md. school who,
when the TV teacher asked
how their work was coming,
grabbed his paper and held it
up to the television screen.
Tuition for the TV-corre

are still roll-up in style.
Sportswear gives off a new flavor this
year, as big plaid Bermuda shorts and
slacks replace traditional solid colors. Kilts
have come forward again, and huge bulky
knit sweaters are making a stronger bid
than last year.
Changing Footwear
Fashion dictates a change in footwear,
with suede boots in every color of the rain
bow. High heels still call for needle
pointed toes, as heels grow thinner. Straps
across the instep are another fashion re
peat. Your legs match your gown this year,
with the latest in hosiery showing every
color imaginable, from black to red,
green, blue, orange and pink. Tights are
fashion news, both for wearing with
sweaters and skirts and kilts. Black and
red are the color leaders in this field.
Chucky charm bracelets, with every
thing from fish to rocks hanging from
them, jangle from wrists in classes. Gold
circle pins are just the thing for sweater
necks, and a single pearl on a gold chain
is a must in every coed's wardrobe.

Maude joined the staff in
1921 as an assistant book

she was shifted to the cash

University staff members
of the Lincoln campuses
came to her window to re

checks until the late 40's.
