"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 business community persists ia keepiu lis books in a 7H a J X Com Cob Last year's statistics were not avafla'ble," ' Phi Delta Theta's guess is 13 out of 22. Jim Cadwallader estimated 22 of 26 pledges were activated last year. Twelve of 16 Phi Gamma Delta pledges will be activat ed, estimated Jerry OTCeefe, corresponding secretary. Last year 14 of 28 made their aver ages. Bill Ashley, president of Phi Kappa Psi, said they plan to initiate 22 of 28 pledges, compared to an esti mated 15 of 27 in 1958. Pi Kappa Phi win initiate two of eight pledges, reported Ron Frickel. Three of seven made their averages in 1958. Sixteen Sales Sixteen of 25 Sigma Alpha Epsilon pledges -will be activ ated this year. Roy Meierhen ry, vice president, estimated eight of 16 made the grade in 1958. The Sigma Alpha Mu guess is four out of 10, compared to five out of 15 last year. Eight of 25 w as the Sigma Nu estimate. Last year's fig ure was 10 out of 23. Fred Howlett, president of Theta Xi, reported that 16 of 24 pledges will be activated. 1958 estimates were not avail able. Estimates from Acacia, Al pha Gamma Rho, Sigma Chi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Theta Chi were not available. -Profile on Campus- eauires JL 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 -Building Fund- Med Tax Hearing Today A bill to remove the ceiling on the building fund levy for the College of Medicine and the Hospital Building will be heard this afternoon by the Legislative Revenue Commit tee. The hearing will be at 2 p.m. in West Hearing Room, sixth 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 removed. To date, $4 million has been collected via the levy. Construction The money has been used to finance new construction. The University Hospital Building is currently being expanded by building additions at money from the fund be 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 cap."

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

"Not every lawyer is go ing to get into trial cases. You may begin writing legal memorandums. Lawyers do all k i n d s of work. In practice, they may specialize, handling only busi ness cases dealing with taxes or corporations; private cases handling estates and wills or public law, con cerned with the government.

Pulling teeth is a routine dent student chore compared to other orthodontic opera tions such as restoration of a fractured jaw, Dr. Ireland said. But the clinical-type opera tion isn't stressed so much as preventive orthodontics in the undergraduate course, Dr. Ireland said. 1 Other things the dental stu dent will learn about and ob serve during his studies are major surgical procedures, growth and development of jaws, and .construction of ar tificial teeth, tooth partial and real the Dean said.
