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 achieve this, he added, and how soon, are "questions that in the main will be answered by the ways in which we make use of the growing power giv en us by science and 'technol Advanced Study- National Science Grants Go to 15 FKteen University students' have received National Sci ence Foundation .awards for advanced scientific studies in 1959 and I960..'

Judy Zikmund, NU c h e e r- leader, has this advice for aspiring freshman. Cheerlead ers for next year will be se. lected at tryouts April 15. Practices will be held April 1, 7. 9 and 14 at 4:30 p.m. at the coliseum. Frosh Eligible Freshmen girls and boys with 4.5 averages are eiligi ble to tryout at 7 p.m. in the coliseum. Three boys and two girls will be picked to Join next year's squad. "Experience isn't needed because cheers are so differ, ent from those of most high schools that experience often hinders you," Miss Zikmund said. "How much we travel depends on how much the uni versity gives us. But those trips are fun. All costs are entirely paid for by the Uni versitytrips, uniforms, even down to ica cream bars we ' Jr v V v Nebroskon Tuesday, March 31, 1959 search is adequately support ed, even though it does n'ot conduct much itself, Dr. Wol 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 generally." 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? "Who gets to use the dwind ling supplies of petroleum will be an important issue," he added. The peak in United States' petroleum production will be reached within five to ten years, according to Dr. Wol fle. Rnth fnnA cmniw Qrf ih supply of foods and essential minerals will depend on the increased use of energy 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 tne sa,t and then to transport tne sweetened water uphill frri tne oceans to the a r i d lands." ine sea win also be a source for minerals, but get ting them on land where they can be processed and used in an engineering job of huge dimensions, as is the problem of extracting the elements 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 ing of science without know ing all the details, just as he can have a general under standing of differing cultures without knowing all of their details. Dr. Wolfle will present the second and third lectures Wednesday and Friday at 8 p.m. in Love Library auditorium. -Big Smile 'n Sparkle- Thai's What Cheerleaders eat on the trip. Cleaning bills are the only expense." Practice Important "Practice sessions are very important. It's the little things that count like hold ing the thumb in instead of out." "Just follow me gals" says Yell King Bill McQuistan to these aspiring young cheerleaders. The pre-vacation prac tice was held to help acquaint the would-be cheerleaders with the fine points of Nebraska cheers. Pink Rag Tomorrow! Conduct Warnings Go to 14 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. Letter 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. Navy Cadets Get Flying .

Frederick Nicolai, deputy registrar, Dr. Charles Miller, dean of the college of Busi ness Administration, and Lt. Arthur Storeide accompanied the students. For the girls, Miss Zikmund added, "Wear a full skirt, and something with sleeves. A tennis shoe is best because that's what we wear." She also mentioned there is a lack of male prospects for the coming year, so all are Union Cafeteria Delays Opening Until . . . ? MAN WITH PROBLEMS is Duane Lake, Managing direc tor of the Student Union. Delays, delays and more delays have been the story of the building of the Union addition. Lake now isn't saying when any of the new building will be ready for service.

Why go out for the c h e e r squad? 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 Saturday men and international stu dents. "As lt is now, the Union 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 events. "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 the advisory board. Qualifications for the board include an average of 5.5 and junior standing by next year. interested students may sign up in the Union Student Ac tivities Office.- - Theta Sigs Will Host Lois Willc Lois Wille, feature writer for the Chicago Daily Nwes, will highlight the annual Matrix dinner of Theta Sig ma Phi Saturday.

Wet Panels, Cafe Line Are Causes Complications arising from flooded kitchen ceilings and incomplete cafeteria linei have delayed opening the new Union cafeteria until "at least April 13." "The ribbing for the ceil- . ing is all in," Duane Lake, Union managing director, . said, "but the panels were caught in a flood in Ohio. They'll have to be re-manufactured." He added that the new panels should be in some time this week, "at least as far as we know. I'm not so optimistic about promises!" He explained that the kitch ens had been moved and were now being operated, al though "ceilingless." Cafeteria operation is being held up because the cafeteria line has not come from the manufacturer. "They say it will be here April 3," Lake commented. The delay will set the open ing dates of all facilities back "a couple weeks " Novicki Is New Chief Of Rifles Nebraska junior Larry No vicki was named national commander of Pershing Ri fles at their annual conven tion last week here at the uni versity. Former national comman der Pat Kuncl also of Nebras ka made the announcement. Novicki tentatively named Fred Howlett deputy com mander and Stan F o n k i n chief of staff of the national fraternity.
