Dr. Brill said that most of

"They may be nervous,
have headaches or not be

"External stress on internal
resources causes the student
to seek some help."

Diagnoses are free; but

But the memory of feeling like a first
class fool remains vivid in Pittenger's
Stickler For Detail
In evaluating Pittenger's abilities, Vern
Scofield, a long-time associate, observed,
"I've never known anybody who could
match him for always acting with the long
range picture in mind and yet be such a
stickler for detail."
Scofield, who manages the Nebraska
Press Association, added, "I'm a' chronic
worrier, always checking people to whom
I've given assignments to make sure the
work will be done on time. Never with
Pitt; tell him what you want, when you
want it, and then you can forget the
This mania for detail is invaluable to a
man whose primary job is to explain the
University of Nebraska position in a man
ner acceptable to all parties involved in
He and Sgt. Joe Friday of "Dragnet"
are equally zealous at getting "Just the
facts, Ma'am." A complete investigation
precedes action. Because it's facts you
must have when you tell a parent his
child is not telling the truth. And it takes
facts plus persuasive sincerity to correct
University errors and to provide an ac
ceptable explanation for the errors.
Pittenger explains it this way: "We can't
always get parents (or faculty, or alumni,
or legislators) to agree with our decisions
or our reasoning, but we always try to get
them to agree with our motives."
His responsibilities surge far beyond
the duties of a referee in disputes.
He is appointment secretary for the
Chancellor and makes arrangements for
the latter's trips.
He supervises arrangements for special
campus events such as convocations and
He wrestles with the ever-growing
campus parking problem and oversees the
campus police force.
He serves as liaison agent between the
Chancellor's office and the multiple ad
ministrative arms of the University.
Pittenger also handles requests for in
formation from members of the Univers
ity's 6-man Board of Regents.
And during legislative years, his political
experience is put to work explaining the
University's budget request to the present
crop of solorw. In this area he shares re
sponsibility with the Chancellor and with
George Round, director of public relations
for the University.
Total these assignments, and you have
a demanding position that requires a
multitude of talents sound judgment, a
disarming and confidence-winning person
ality and a slavish devotion to detail, to
name only a few.
By any measurement Pittenger is well
qualified for the job.
At one time or another during World
War II, he served as "personal" executive
officer for Maj. Gen. Frederick L. Ander
son of the 8th Air Force, for Gen. Henry
H. (Hap) Arnold, chief of the Army Air
Corps, and Ambassador Robert D.
Muiphy, chief civil affairs officer on the
staff of the Supreme Commander.
Pittenger's role with General Anderson
was later featured in the book and film
Although he was a major, Pittenger was
depicted by Author William Haines as a
staff sergeant with, the uncanny ability of
always being able to find a bottle of bour
bon at the right time.
But it took much more than bourbon to
wash down the irritations, pricks at pride,
and differences of opinion that result when
you attempt to mesh the air arms of many
nations into a smoothly co-ordinated strik
ing force. Keeping allied air staffs happy
and at peace with each other was Pit
tenger's main job.
Pittenger was Air Corps hosts at an all
service planning conference in England
to map out details for the D-Day strike.
On another occasion, he chaperoned the
King and Queen of England at an Air
Corps celebration to honor the first B-17
Flying Fortress to complete- 50 combat
missions over German-occupied territory.
As a result of his wartime experience,
Pittenger is at ease in the presence of high
brass. If need be, he can still produce that
bottle of bourbon at the right time and at
the right place; however, today his own
glass will be filled with a soft drink.
Denied a permanent Air Corps commis
sion because of his weight, hospitalized
for a year and a half with a paralysis of
the lower part of the body resulting from
an air crash, Pittenger's post-war career
appeared anything but promising in 1947.
Home on hospital leave, he was visiting
with some acquaintances in his father's
clothing store in Albion one Saturday
'What do you plan to do, Pitt?" he was
He jokingly replied, "I think I'll go down
to Lincoln and become secretary to the
Two days later, one of the men in the
' group called and said, "I hope you weren't
joking about that job because I have just
arranged a meeting for you with the Gov
ernor." Two weeks later Pittenger's ap
pointment was announced. He spent the
next four years as assistant to Governor
Frank Marsh, Nebraska's secretary of
state, died early in 1951 in his 9th term
of office, and Pittenger was named to suc
ced him. Two years later Pittenger was
defeated in the Republican primary by
Marsh's son, who still holds the position.
It was while serving as a "lame duck"
that Pittenger attached himself to the Ei
senhower campaign for what he considers
his "most exciting days in politics." High
light of this experience was the campaign
finale which he staged in Boston Gardens
on the eve of the 1952 election.
Stayed in Nebraska
Following the Eisenhower victory, Pit
tenger passed up a political job in Wash
ington in favor of remaining in Nebraska.
He was named secretary of the University
of Nebraska Alumni Association in 1953, a
position he held until joining the Chan
cellor's staff two years later.
Pittenger is married and the father of
three children. The family, which resides
at 2835 Jackson Drive, also includes a
black Cocker Spaniel and a Dachshund.
When Pittenger can get away from Lin
coln, he most frequently heads for fishing
country. Otherwise, he can normally be
found working with his stamp collection.
Either way, he's close to a telephone,
. ready to respond to any S.O.S. summons
from the University.
