"It is not only the three
years in law school that go to
make the lawyer but the
undergraduate work as
well," commented Peter
Andersen, senior in Law Col
lege. Teaching students the sub
stance and the method of the
law is only one facet of the
school, Andersen explained.
The college is also concerned
with what the law should be.
Law Must Serve
"The law must serve soci
ety," said Andersen. "In or
der to do this, the lawyer
must have a broad educa
tion." The law must reconcile its
practices with the practices
of communities within the
society. For instance, if t h e

fashion contrary to that pre
scribed "by law, the law must
change in order to reconcile
the practices.
"The lawyer, then, must
recognize the needs of his
community. He must under
stand his community and his
society as one among many;
he must see his society in
the prespective of history.
This the law schools cant
teach," Andersen said.
- Moral Issue
Another filing that Ander
sen said the law schools can't
handle is he moral aspect of
law. Some legal decisions are
simply arbitrary ones. Others
require not only a legal de
cision but a moral judgment.
The law student cited the
recent decisions on the issue
of desegregation as an exam
ple of moral judgment as well
as legal decision.
The only way a lawyer can
cope with the moral decisions
and understand his society is
to get basic grounding in the

floor, Capitol building.
The bill would make per
manent the ,25-mill levy.
Created in '53
The levy was created in
1953. At that lime, the stipu
lation was that the tax should
be levied until $6 million was
paid into the Building Fund.
Any additional revenue col
lected in the last year of the
levy was to be paid Into the
state General Fund.
If the bill becomes law, the
$C million ceiling would be
To date, $4 million has been
collected via the levy.
The money has been used to
finance new construction.
The University Hospital
Building is currently being
expanded by building additions

comes available. Two units
have been constructed to date.
Among the projects com
pleted since the levy was in
stituted are the School of
Nursing, modernization of the
steam and electrical service,
and provision of new access
roads and parking areas.
'Need Chance
Sen. Terry Carpenter of
Scottsbluff, introducer of the
bill, said that the University
did not ask him to propose ths
measure, but that he believes
the medical college should
have the chance to plan
ahead. - "
"Medicine isnl a luxury,'
he said. "It's sometime even-
one needs and uses and medi
cal science should be given
every chance to attain its
ultimate goals without handi

Liberal Arts
"Philosophy, history, liter
aturethese are all important
to have," Andersen empha
sized. "If it is at all economically
feasible, the law student
should complete a full course
in liberal arts,'" Andersen sug
gested. Two years of undergraduate
work are required before a
prospective law student can
enter the college. The Law
College requires four years
training after the student en
ters unless he has graduated.
In tiiis case, three years el
legal training is required.

"You can't be a good law
yer unless you know how to
write," Andersen said.

Pulling teeth is a routine

to other orthodontic opera

But the clinical-type opera

as preventive orthodontics in
the undergraduate course, Dr.
Ireland said. 1
Other things the dental stu

major surgical procedures,
