New Program Challenges Better Students
The Daily Nebraskan
The results of the new
mathematics honors program
are "wonderful," said Dr.
Walter Mientka, assistant
professor of mathematics.
The program, directed to
w a r d stimulating and
challenging the b e 1 1 e r stu
dents, applies to students of
science and engineering who
will use mathematics as well
as to mathematics majors.
Divided into three sections, it
includes an undergraduate
seminar, a graduate seminar
and a freshman honors
course in mathematics.
"We are able to work at an
above-normal pace," com
mented Mientka, "because
the students are enthusiastic
and they never complain
8bout outside work."

ordinarily encounter in the
course work.
About twenty outstand
ing students attend the under
graduate seminar. They may
audit the course or register
for one hour credit and write
a paper or present a talk dur
ing the semester.
The purposes of t h e pro
gram were to acquaint inter
ested and able students with
some areas of mathematical
research, to offer majors the
opportunity of preparing and
presenting a talk, to encour
age good students to take ad
ditional course work or do ad
ditional reading, to allow
members of the department
to become acquainted
with the majors and to insti
gate informal discussion be
tween students and faculty
According to Mientka the
quality of the talks was bet
ter than expected and the
seminar has been a d d e d to
the University catalogue.
Since it will be offered each
semester with little or no du
plication, it may be taken for
credit as many as three times.
Grad Seminar
All graduate mathematics
students were invited to at
tend the graduate seminar
which was similar to the un
dergraduate seminar except
that topics were more ad
vanced and there was more
student participation.
Intended for freshmen who
have demonstrated outstand
ing ability and training in
high school mathematics, the
freshman honors course was
designed to increase the stu
dents' awareness of the scope
and nature of mathematical
methods and to organize the
material of analytic geometry
and calculus courses into a
single three semester course
for freshmen.
The course will carry five
hours of credit for each of the
three semesters and will

Ever meet a Doubting Thomas?
A college senior once remarked to a Bell System inter
viewer: "A telephone career must be a mirage. I hear talk
about fabulous training, fascinating work, grade-A job se
curity, and rapid advancement in management. Sounds a
bit too rosy. Whpt's llie real story?"
The interviewer knew mere talk wouldn't sell a bkeptic
So lie bliowed him some "profiles" of recent college graduates
who had enjoyed that fabulous training, had worked at
intriguing jobs, and hid won early management promotions.
Our once-skeptical friend lias been with the Bell System
3 years now and is currently supervising the work of 55
We've converted a hunt of Doubting Tlioinnes. Whether
doubtful or not, you'll leant a lot about rewarding telephone
careers by talking with the Bell System interviewer when lie
visits your c ampus. Ako read the Bell Telephone booklet on
