Campus Beautification
9 MAR 2 1959
Eight Council
Are Approved
Eight of the ten proposals
Cf tne campus Beautification
Committee will become a re
ality, according to Carl Don
aldson, University business
Donaldson said no reflecting
pool would be planned.
The proposal to construct
a sidewalk in a "direct line"
between University and Ne
braska bookstores was also
turned down.
Donaldson said that it was
uu a gvuu puinj f pin
parallel walks within 100 feet
of each other."
(There is already a side
walk leading from the Unl
versity bookstore to the cor
ner,, the only legal place to
cross the street aceuiding to
Lincoln traffic ordinances.
Reflecting Pool
Donaldson said that the re
flecting pool was a good idea
and would be very beautiful.
He said however that the
feasibility of constructing
such a pool on a University
campus would be doubted by
anyone familiar with the ac
tivities of exhubcrant college
The "sign board" in front
of the Union which the report
mentions will be eliminated
with the opening of the Union
addition, according to Don
aldson. New Sign
He said that the Union front
would probably be shifted 10
the north and a new sign con
structed there.
The 27th street parking
stalls between the Mueller
Tower and Love Library will
definitely not be eliminated
this semester, Donaldson said.
The faculty committee on
parking makes all changes it
the semester breaks, he
Block Streets
Donaldson revealed that
present University plans call
for the complete closing off
in the near future of the
streets between Love Library
and the Mueller Tower.
This whole area would be

Real Indian Yogi
THIS IS YOGI as demonstrated by Chakravarti Krish
naswami at the Indian Student Cultural Program held in
the Union Ballroom Saturday night. About 500 persons at
tended the event. Songs, solo dances, folk dances, comedy
and piano selections were given by about 27 NU students
from India. The program was organized by Himansu Sen
and Dev Raj Chopra.
kept for faculty parking.
' "The contract has already
been let and we are waiting
for the thaw," said Donaldson
concerning the sidewalks
along the east side of Ban
croft hall.
Stone Benches
The stone benches will have
to be purchased as students
show that they are being
used, Donaldson said.
The planting of trees and
the creation of a mall be
tween Love Library and the
tower would probably pre
cede the placing of benches
there, he added.
The area between Morrill
and Andrews was closed off
for the construction of the
Mueller planetarium, Donald
son said.
Area Open
Now that the construction
is completed the area will be
opened. If traffic studies show
it is necessary, diagonal side
walks will be poured.
Donaldson indicated that
when classes start in Elgin
these sidewalks will probably
be very necessary.
The University plans to con
tinue to plant trees in the
manner similar to those be
tween Love Library and the
new Administration Building.
Selleck Lots
Concerning "shrubbery and
trees planted in profusion"
around the Selleck lots Don
aldson said, "Safety dictates
that the bushes could not be
too high."
The lots will be resurfaced
and the number of parking
spaces cut down to leave more
room for bigger cars.
Donaldson praised the
Campus Beautification com
mittee for their work on the
project. "It's nice to know
students are interested."

NU Researcher Says
Economy Needs More
Medicine, Schools Not
By Marilyn Coffey
"What our economy needs
and demands is more
schools, more medicine and
more scientists not more
farmers," Bert Evans Uni
versity research economist
Evans explained his view
of the so-called "farm prob
lem," some of its causes and
a possible solution.
To understand what is
commonly termed "the farm
problem," agriculture must
not be viewed as a separate
segment of our economy,
Evans said.
The traditional economic
view of the farm problem is
wrong, he said. This view
separated each segment of
the economy such as agri
culture and industry
and scrutinized them, Once
analyzed, the economist
tried to fit them back into
the total picture.
The problem of agricul
ture is not primarily a prob-
era within agriculture i it
self. It is a question of the
relationship between agricul-,

Selection of the Ideal NU
Coed was made by a com

Miss Peterson said she was
"dumbfounded" when she re

"I didn't know who would

would be me" she exclaimed.
When asked why she en
joyed activities so much Miss
Peterson said, "College is so
much more than scholarship
or activities by themselves. It
takes participation in both to
get full value received from
your education."
Miss Peterson said her
activities had given her "con

ture and the rest of the econ
omy, Evans said.
"The so-called 'farm prob
lem' is largely symptomatic
of a maladjustment on a na
tional level," he said. "This
unbalance stems from a
changing and growing econ
omy." America is developing into
a more technical and indus
trial nation. When our coun
try began, the economy was
95 per cent agrarian, 5 per
cent industrial. Now the po
sitions are nearly reversed,
he added.
This change is directly re
lated to continuing techno
logical and scientific ad
vancement. j Human Resource
"A continual division and
specialization of labor
coupled with changing and
expanding human needs and
wants, means quite simply
that the human resources of
our society need to be ap
plied more heavily to medi

ic advance.

Late Showers
OK at Syracuse
"A recommendation to
permit coeds to take show
ers after curfew was passed
by the WSG assembly
Wednesday night . . ."
At Syracuse University it
seems that after 11:15 p.m.
coeds may not use the show
ers, hence the discussion.
The Daily Orange reports
that when one coed was
caught showering at 11:20,
the head resident walked in,
pulled back the shower cur
tains, turned off the water
and made the offender take
an extra proctoring assign
ment as a punishment.
"These human resources
need to be applied less heav
ily to agriculture," Evans
Nebraska has the addition
al problem of lack of indus
try. This makes it even
harder for her farm popula
tion to move into work of a
skilled or semi-skilled na

"We need industrial
growth within the state," he
"That Nebraska is rel
atively underdeveloped is
clearly seen in her rural
areas. The failure of small
businesses, the moving of
farmers to Detroit and Cali
fornia, the redistricting of
schools because of decreas
ing population these things
are symptomatic of the
same basic problem that
faces the nation: how hu
man resources can be allo
cated to the benefit of ' all,"
Evans commented.

"Mostly Macbeth" was a
satire on Shakespeare's Mac

who "lies within." When the
morning came to the tune of
"Oh what a horrible morn

boy for me," Lady Macbeth
did her famous candle scene
to "I'm gonna wash that blood

Africa. Kappas in grass skirts
