"The world population Is
now increasing so rapidly that
approximately 40 per cent of
all the people who have ever
lived are alive today," an em
inent scientific administrator
said Monday.
Dr. Dael Wolfle, executive
officer of the American Asso
ciation for the Advancement
of Science presented the first
of three Montgomery Lec
tures on "Science and Public
Policy" at the University.
See 'Hope'
The world is at a point now,
Dr. Wolfle pointed out, where
it can see the hope of reach
ing a reasonable standard of
living for everyone.
Whether m a n k i n d w 1 1 1

how soon, are "questions that
in the main will be answered

fle, maintained.
Money Justified
In reference to government
support of basic research,
Dr. Wolfle observed that
spending tax money in support
of basic research "can be
justified on the grounds that
the result will benefit society
The scientist urged modifi
cation of income tax law to
encourage voluntary gifts to
universities and laboratorie
and the undertaking by indus
try of increased basic re
search. Looking at the future, Dr.
Wolfle said that as raw ma
terials are used up and as
the world faces important
changes in the primary
sources of power, "we can an
ticipate some serious interna
tional problems."
Who Gets Oil?

Sea A Source
The sea is a possible source
for both the food and the min
erals. Desalting water could
make better use of the world's
arid regions.
"Such desalting is feasible,"
' ne explained, "and while the
price will undoubtedly go
down as technological im
provement occur, there will
still be a very substantial en-
ersy requirement w remove

Depends On Mind
Our success will depend on
the human mind, Dr. Wolfle
maintained, with the fertile
imagination of the trained sci
entist, the imaginative devel
opment of the engineer and
the skillfull management of
increasingly complex organi
zations. Aloofness or antagonism to
science, however, he empha
sized, "may be suicidal."
Each person must and can
have "a general understand

Tribunal Hears
Trespassing Case
Fourteen of the individuals
whose cases were heard by
the Student Tribunal March
19 were issued conduct warn
ings, J. Philip Colbert, dean
of the division of student af
fairs, said.
All 14 cases dealt with a
compalint of trespassing. No
trespassing charge had been
pressed in county court, the
dean said.
The warning consisted of a
letter to the students and to
their parents, calling the
matter to their attention and
admonishing careful action
in the future.
An additional case on the
same charge was dismissed.
"As it turned out, the in
dividual was not involved,"
Dean Colbert explained.
Five other cases heard by
the Tribunal in their lengthy
! pre-uasier session resuuea in
' Pion for the students in
voivea. f our of the cases
dealt with alcoholic bever
ages and their illegal posses
sion or consumption.
Pilfering Case
One case concerned the
"appropriation of property
not belonging to the individu
al" or pilfering, the dean
said. . -
No action was taken on
two of the cases heard. The
Tribunal decided to continue
the hearings of these cases
until their next session.
In all the March 19 cases,
the action taken by the dean
of student affairs coincided
with the action recommend
ed by the Tribunal, Dean Col
bert said.

For the girls, Miss Zikmund
added, "Wear a full skirt,

New College
A new NROTC Advanced
Science and Engineering Pro
gram has been inaugurated
by the U.S. Navy. The pro
gram applies to the univer

This program is designed to
assist the U.S. Navy in the
education and training of sci
entists and engineers for
f ,u r t h e r developments in
"space technology "
Final selection of participat
ing individuals will be based
primarily upon their academ
ic record, the "recommenda
tions of the Commanding Offi
cers of the NROTC units and
their demontrasted perform
ance as officers during their
first five to six months of
active duty.
This program is available
to eligible midshipmen of the
regular and Contract NROTC
students who are completing
their college work leading to
degree in engineering or al
lied field and who, will re
ceive commissions as En
signs USN, or Ensigns USNR

Why go out for the c h e e r
One reason is you get ex
pense paid trips with the foot
ball teams. Cheerman Brent
ChaiWiers said the squad
would probably go ta Kansas
State, Iowa State. Missouri
and possibly one other school
next season.
"The trips are fun," Miss
Zikmund pointed out, "Out
bouncing around like a fool
at the football games and
rallys, you would have to have
a horrible attitude not to love
it. And believe it or not, be
ing on the squad makes most
of our averages go up.
Chambers' advice to the
hopeful was to be friendly
and pleasing with an average
amount of co-ordination.
"They learn two yells to try
out," he said. "Both boys and
girls should wear clothes that
give them freedom of move
ment." In past years about 60 or 70
hava tried out. This year a

Board is largely made up of
Greeks," Terry Mitchem,
Union Board member said.
"We hope that each group
I can nuw ue represented ana
I will be able to say how they
want their money spent."
She explained that the Un
ion receives a small amount
of money from each student's
tuition with which they spon
sor programs and various
"We feel that all students
should have something to say
about what kind of projects
we put on," she said.
The board will act In an
advisory capacity to the Un
ion board, holding meetings
on Tuesday evenings. Stu
dents who hold a Union board
position or chairmanship for
next year are ' ineligible for

Qualifications for the board

He explained that the kitch
