"I feel that it (pledging) is
an i ' vidual responsibility,"
said ..erman.
"A student should contrib
ute not enly as a member of
the University but as a future
young participant in his com
munity," be said.
We, as students will be sup
porting the Center witn our
interest in the future; we will
be the ones who must be
willing to accept startling
new conceptions that may
come out of such an institu
tion; we will reap the bene
fits from the Center as well,

mented. More a Part
Td like to stimulate stu

become more a part of the
Center," Herman said.
Students must be ready to
participate in such education
al advances not only now
through their pledges, but
when it is completed by their
continued interest, he added.
Key to Speed
"Flexible, not fast readers
are the purpose of the Univer
sity speed 'reading course,"
said Miss Oliva Carino, in
structor. "If a student dou
bles his 6peed and still com
prehends effectively, thus six
week course has been valu
able to him."
Each of the 46 students in
the no-credit course attends
two hour lectures and two 30
minute labs each week. No
credit is offered for the course
so that only those students
with an interest in improving
will enroll.
Personal 'motivation and
small classes are the best
formula for good reading.
Miss Carino said..
In lecture sessions, students
discuss the mechanics of good
reading and habits hindering
it, she said.
In labs students read ma
terial placed in a machine
which controls the rate of
reading from 350-1,200 words
per minute. Material read
ranges from psychology books
to the Readers pigest and
Time. . j
The principal behind flexi
ble reading, Miss Carino ex
plained, is to show a slow
reader of science books bow
to read general literature,;
and general readers bow to'
get the most out of science

Say Hearing
Shortest Yet
No Enrollment
Trend Seen
Observers remarked that
the budget hearings this year
were the shortest they had
attended in some time. The
hearing lasted a' little over
an. hour. .
Some principle questions
concerned raises in Univers
ity enrollment and the sand
hills experiment station.
Governor Victor Anderson
asked if increased enrollment
weren't responsible for some
raises in the budget. Hardin
said that increased enroll
ment would not affect the
budget being presented.
Hardin also said that there
was no upward or downward
enrollment trend. He said that
the highest enrollment had
been about 8,500 in the fall
of 1956. He said that last year
it had droppd to about 8,150.
Part of the drop, he thought,
was caused by a tightening
up on requirements. This
year enrollment rose some
Hardin added that he
thought a raise in tuition
probably accounted for an
enrollment drop of about 300
between the fall of 1956 and
the fall of 1957. '
"If you started this (sand
hills experiment station) pro
gram, wouldn t it be a re-
occurring item in the bud
get? Anderson asked. Uni
versity officials answered
that it would only be partly
so: that a large part of the
expense would not occur
Tremendous Service
"I realize that you do a
tremendous service to agri
culture, but if you go out to
the average farmer and ask,
'What has the University
done for you?', he doesn't
know," Anderson commented.
He added that he realized the
state was largely dependent
upon agriculture for econo
my. Hardin replied that he felt
farmers realized what the
University did for them.
To Recommend
Both Governor Victor An
derson and Governor-elect
Ralph Brooks will submit rec
ommendations on the Univer
sity budget.
However, these recommen
dations will not be made until
the state legislature meets
Jan. 6. Anderson must sub
mit h i s recommendations
within three days after that
date. Brooks has 15 days in
which to submit his.
Later probably in March
or April University officials
will be asked to explain the
budget again, this time to the
legislature's budget commit
tee. The budget committee may
or may not follow the recom
mendations of either Ander
son or Brooks. It will report
to the legislature, which win
make the final decision, prob
ably in May or June.

cording to information dis
closed in Monday's budget
The University is asking
$26,894,000, a $5,894,000 in
crease for the' 1959-61 bien
nium. Chancellor Hardin, who ap
peared with Comptroller Jo
seph Soshnik to present the
budget to Governor Victor
Anderson and Governor-elect
Ralph Brooks, said of in
creased salaries:
"The sums requested for
this purpose will not place ns
at the top of the faculty sal
ary heap In this region or
even among the institutions
represented in the studies .
They will place us at a mid
point in . . . surveys of 1958
59 salaries."
Chancellor Hardin referred
to studies presented by Sosh
nik. One study of 23 public
universities in the Midwest to
Pacific Coast area showed
average faculty salaries at
Nebraska rank 21st from the
top for professors, 23rd for
assistant professors, and 19th
for instructors.
Land Grant Colleges .
A second study concerning
46 land grant colleges and
universities made by the U.S.
Office of Education shows
that average university sal
aries are well below regional
and national averages, Sosh
nik said.
The University presented
two budgets for the first
ii in i j
ume inis jear: an a duo
get for the maintenance of
present programs at existing
levels and a 'B" budget for
Budget "A" requires an ex
tra $4.2 million in additional
state property tax funds. The
expansion budget requires
$1.6 million.
Faculty Addition Wanted
Expansion requirements in
cluded addition of faculty
members, teaching assistants
and equipment for existing
programs as well as provid
ing new ones.
Soshnik claimed that files
additions were not related to
possible increases in enroll
ment. The larges -equest in Bud
get "B" was one for a new
sandhills experiment station.
Soshnik said that the U.S.
Forest Service would make
available at no cost 10,009
acres of sandhills range land
for research work. About
$190,000 would be required to
develop and operate the sta
tion. Surgical Unit Requested
Another large item in the
budget was a request, for an
additional surgical unit at the
Medical Center in Omaha. It
would require about $108,800.
Arguments for the expan
sion were the provision of a
greater variety and number
of general surgical cases for
medical and nursing students
and an ability to meet the
increasing number of cases
beinz referred to University
Hospital by Nebraska coun
ties. A second major item In the
Medical Center expansion
program was the employ
ment of a physical therapist
and a physical therapy aid.
