How many college men eligible for Se

they graduate?
The answer, unhappily so for many col
lege men with military life facing them,
is 99-1, according to Pentagon officials,
Newsweek magazine reports in its April
4 edition.
The magazine says the temptation to
play "draft roulette," that is to lie low,

With the construction tempo increasing
on the Nebraska Center for Continuing Ed
ucation, the pre-opening evaluation pro
gram is taking shape. To better acquaint
the citizen with the purpose of continuing
education ana me various
. centers across the coun
try, the W. K. Kellogg
Foundation originator of
the program has pub
lished a 60 page booklet
about continuing educa
tion and the centers.
In a word, continuing
education Is "continuing
study by adults, utilizing
periodic learning exper
iences within a university
environment and featuring a specially de
signed facility.
Dr. Emory W. Morris, president and
. general director of the foundation, places
the need for adnlt education on the rapid
ly changing world and the problems it
creates. "Will professional knowledge and
Industrial skills, cultural understanding
and social purpose, keep pace with the on
rushing tempo set by automation and the
rocket age?" be asks.
"Education seems the only hope for an
affirmative answer to this question, not
just education for the young over a sixteen
year span but particularly for the adult
and continuing through his life. Many
Americans are sharing the growing con
viction that continuing education for ma
ture citizens is one of the most signifi
cant educational delevlopments of the last
several decades," Dr. Horris writes.
Centers already completed are located
on the Michigan State and Georgia cam
puses. Nearing completion are three oth
ers, the Universities of Chicago, Okla
homa and Nebraska.
First of the centers was the one at
Michigan State, built in 1951. It was host
to more than 40,000 conference partici
pants last year.
Seven characteristics common to
five centers are listed in the booklet:

1. The education is continuing; i.e.,
series of conferences, seminars, work
shops and other educational experiences
between meetings, are encouraged. Ideal
ly, groups with a common interest meet
year after year. Involved are pre-confer-ence
planning and pre- and post-conference
contact through the media of tele;
vision, radio and supplementary litera
ture. 2. The meetings are usually held in a
collegiate or university setting offering
people retreat from their usual environ
ment and largely precluding the interrup
tions which occur in everyday routines.
3. Ordinarily for two, three, four, or
more days, the participant devote full
time rather than marginal time.
4. There is maximum use of collegiate
or university resources. The program is
part of the institution, an extension of its
teaching functions to a new group in so
ciety. Thus Continuing Education is a
means by which research findings can
flow to the people and be applied to problem-solving.
5. The content of the meetings is drawn
frmo the full-range of knowledge which is
the concern of some unit of a university.
A requisite is that the field of interest
must be that of a college or department of
the university and sponsored by the unit.
6. Continuing Education combines a staff
devoted to expediting the meetings, sub
ject matter specialists from the insttiution
andor elsewhere, and a physical facility
so designed as to make these learning ex
periences most effective.
7. Continuing Education makes avail
able to university research specialists in
formation based on identification by the
people oftheir most pressing current prob
lems. t "To summarize," the booklet states,

of young men. Most employers don't want
to hire a "l-A" and employment agencies
are even more outspoken on the subject.
Fresh college graduates complain that
there is almost no chance of getting a de
cent job during the months of limbo be
tween the bright day of graduation and
the dark one when Uncle Sam's greetings
And some college men and defense fig
ures think the shadow of the draft drives
many collegians into various reserved of
ficer training programs, where he has a
chance for more money and prestige dur
ing the inevitable service years but lit
tle drive or initiative to be a good officer.
Moral problems also have resulted be
cause of the draft. Newsweek said, "Where
the question of fatherhood is concerned,
there is simply no way of knowing when
a young man has cynically and deliberate
ly got himself married and started a fam
iyl strictly for draft avoidance. A recent
Labor Department study estimates that
35 to 40 per cent of the men reaching the
age of 22-23 will have become fathers."
What are the opinions? Presidential
hopeful Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey says
the program should be reviewed and re
vised. Sen. Stuart Symington says the
draft should be eliminated and Vice Pres
ident Nixon says the draft ... is indispen
sable to national security.
Selective Service boss Lt. Gen. Lewis
B. Hershey says, "I'm afraid all this talk
objecting to the draft is some more of our
softness the desire to do no work, to
shirk our citizen's responsibilities. We
want everything painless as possible,
everything for comfort and ease."
This may be very true in some cases
but seems like a sad generalization. As
Newsweek points out, the basic complaint
of the average young man is not "Why
should I serve?"
It Is: "Tell me when and how I should
serve and to the best of my ability." He
doesn't want his time wasted and his
time, in the long run, is the nation's time.

No Parking Relief?
To the Editor:
There seems to be no im
mediate relief in sight for
the parking problem on the
University campus. The
parking lot with meters on
the northeast side of the
Student Union is helpful for
fiff-campus students who
need to find a parking place
in a hurry.
On the other hand, many
off-campus students remain
on campus all day for clas
ses or studies. For these
students feeding the parking
meters and moving automo
biles several times a day
becomes a serious nuisance
which detracts from study
ing. Although there have been
vacant spaces available in
the Selieck parking lot, I'm
afraid that his lot will be
jam-packed again just as
soon as the mud settles. Pa
ving the Selieck lot wHl re
sult in fewer mud-spattered
cars and students, but this
improvement will do nothing
to remedy the problem of
inadequate parking space.
Perhaps many off-campus
students will find that
walking or riding the bus is
the only immediate solution
to the parking problem. Un
fortunately, these students
are faced with the problem
of lugging around a large
pile of books. On this score,
I believe that the University
could and should provide a
By providing book lockers
in the University Library,
University officials could
make it more feasible for
students to walk fairly long
distances to school. More
over, the adoption of this
idea might result in more
students having their text
books on hand in class when
they are needed.
From the parking prob
lem, I will now skip to an
other subject which is un
related to the first. Why
doesn't the University cre
ate some lounges for Uni
versity men? Perhaps one
reply to this statement
might be that the campus
is a place to study and not
a place to sprawl or sack
On the other hand, I be-,
lieve that short periods of
time which are spent in
relatively private relax
ation increases rafher than
decreases study efficiency.
In this regard the gold
fish bowl type of lounge in
the Student Union is not
answer. Furthermore, since
the University has provided
lounges for University wom
en, why not create the same
facilities for the men?

Civil Right Utue
To the Editor:
1 w as very pleased to note
several letters in the Daily
Nebraskan concerning the
civil rights problem in the
South. The opening of the
Freedom Fund also is en
couraging. I can imagine the South
ern Negro youth's urge for
equal treatment and human
justice. I am not surprised
at their violent demonstra
tions. Any rational human
being in their shoes would
feel the same way. I know
how I felt when some of
the "white Christians" in
the "Holy Land-L i n c o 1 n
Land" told me that they
could not let me rent an
apartment because 1 was
Perhaps it also will be
quite appropriate if the stu
dents of this University re

(Emergency Public Inte
gration Committee which is
coordinating the activities
of campus committee at
Harvard, Massachusetts In
stitute of Technology, Bos
ton University and Brandeis
University; plus non-campus
groups opposed to dis
crimination) appeal by:
1. Sending resolutions of
support to the Negro schools

2. Peaceful demonstra
tions; 3. Sympathy meetings to
encourage our fellow broth
ers in the South.
I hope that the colleagues
who wrote several letters on
this subject will take the
leadership in doing some
thing constructive.
I am willing to give my
personal support and I am
quite positive that there
will be several others on
this campus and outside
who also are interested in
human justice, equal treat-
ment and "Love they neigh
bor as thyself."

Palladian Society
To the Editor:
In a Letterip on March
28, Mr. (John) Hartung asks
what RAM can do to help
those scholars interested in
social organization.
Although RAM must
solve this problem by it
self, there are other organi
zations which provide in
tellectual encouragement
as well as social activity.
I refer in particular to
the Palladian Literary So
ciety. The Friday night
programs provide the mem
bers with an outlet for their
talents through such things
as play readings, original
poetry and readings, inter
pretive reading, reports, de
bates, speeches, etc. ,.
Although this society has
an average of over 7.0, it
is not exclusively scholastic.
After each program re
freshments are served and
the people present sit
around and talk.
Every once and a while,
we break away from the
scholastic theme with pro
grams like a mock trial,
paper bag dramatics, a
Christmas program, a Hal
loween program and a
spring picnic.
I hope that some of the
independents from the boy's
and girl's dorms, who are
interested in scholastic plus
social activity, will attend
our Friday night programs
at 8:30, in Temporary Build
