RWMl Kills 10:30 Frosh Hours; Study Goes On
A motion that freshman
women's hours be extended
iO.. 10:30 p.m. during the
week has been turned down
by Panhellenic.
Only four houses were in
favor of the measure; one
house was not in attend
ance. The motion was prev
iously submitted to the
members of each sorority
and voted upon.
In separate action, a Stu
d e n t Council committee
composed of Sukey Tinan,
Jeannie Morrison, Dave
Myers and George Moyer
has been set up to investi
gate AWS rules.
U'Lots of people have
made complaints, expeci
ally about the closing
hours. We are investigating
these things to see if there
is any basis for these com
plaints," Moyer explained.
Study Committee
He emphasized that this
committee was set up
merely for research study,
and was not to change any
of the rules. "We will in
vestigate these hours, com
pare them with hours at
other institutions of this
size and then analyze them
logically," Moyer stated.
"The hours may be per
fectly all right. However,
because people requested
that this committee be set
up, we shall try to make
a reasonable decision. We
will not change the hours
"After a complete inves
tigation, comparing the sit
uation with the customs
and practices of other uni
versities, we will make a
report to Student Council,"
Moyer continued.
May Recommend
"The Council may then
make a recommendation to
AWS based on the findings
of our committee," Moyer
added. "We are just get
ting started on our investi
gation, and have run into
a lot of problems already,"
Moyer added.
"Our purpose is to find
out what the students want.
We are going to meet with
the IWA to see what their
feelings .are," Moyer con
cluded. No specific hours are be
ing considered. Miss Morri
son outlined two advantages
if the hours were extended
an hour from the present
limit of 9 p.m.
The points she outlined
were, first, that freshman
women would have more
time to study in the li
brary. Second, sororities
which have study hall at
the houses would have more
time for actual studying.
"The people at the library
seem to think that 11 p.m.
is a reasonable hour, as it
would give everyone tha
opportunity to use the li
brary to the maximum
amount," Moyer said.
He stated that the dis
advantage of this proposal
is that all AWS hours
would then have to be revised.

excerpts from her works
On cemeteries "Cities of

Closed Meet Tuesday;
Third Route Studied?
A rumored study of a pro
posed third Interstate route
would supposedly run west of
the two previously ' proposed
routes by the Department of
Roads and the University.
This would involve moving
or eliminating some Missouri
Pacific railroad tracks west
of 9th St.
The study was reportedly
discussed during a closed
meeting of highway officials,
University representa
tives and property owners
Tuesday afternoon at the
Lincoln Chamber of Com
merce, This third alternate access
route reportedly went under
study by the Department of
Roads after University offi
cials protested that a 10th
St. route north of R St. would
hinder future expansion plans
of the University.
Acting Engineer John Hos
sack declined comment on
the rumored study.
The route now planned

Department to obtain tne

"Then to raise the question
of a permanent authorization
for the coalers, to be told
that it could only be given
for a month, to insist on
nothing less than five years,
to settle ungraciously for
three, and in the end, after"
so much backing and filing,
to declare that the coalers
had not even been pur
chased ! "
Despite the event, Dr. Cosio
said that the . almost unani
mous anti-American feeling
'which prevailed during this
time could be attributed to
the economic penetration of
Mexico rather than to the
Bay incident itself.
"In fact," Hoover said,
"the population in Nebraska
in 1937 was below the total
population in 1930." He said
he noted this fact when he
made a study of population
in Nebraska eight years ago.
The decline in population
in the state did not stop
until 1942 and further, did
not "at least level off until
1946 when the birth rate in
creased sharply and has con
tinued at a high level ever
since," Dr. Hoover noted.
The fall off in birth rate
in Nebraska was supplement
ed by a migration out of the
state during the depression
and war years cutting the
total population even more,
he said.
"We had no war industries
such as Wichita, Seattle,
Portland and other 'points
had including those in the
east to keep people in the
state," Hoover said.
The skyrocketing birth rate
from 1946 to 1960 in the state
won't be felt until 1964 and
then only in the incoming
freshman class if they do

"The state of Nebraska
must gear itself to the large
task of educating the large
numbers of people," Hoover
He predicted the 1 a r g e
turnover of future college
students to one more factor
"interest." "More people
are interested in education
than ever before in the his
tory of this globe," Hoover
Prior to 1941 most people
considered a high school
education sufficient. Now
about one-third of the gradu
ating high school seniors go
on to some form of higher
education. This figure is due
to the "interest phenomena,"
he said.
Will Nebraska catch up to
the national rate of increase,
(5.5 per cent to .03 per cent
today) in the future? The
question is "indeterminate
and imponderable" for pos
sible adverse and favorable
conditions in the future,
Hoover said.
.Serves Nebraskans
"The University of Nebras
ka is serving principally Ne
braskans," Hoover noted. He
said this is a different situa
tion where, at the University
of Colorado, about "45 per
cent" of the total enrollment
is non-resident.
The average undergradu
ate college, non-resident en
rollment here at Nebraska is
1 per cent or under, Hoover
noted. The exception is the
Medical College at Omaha,
according to Hoover, who al
so noted the largest in-state
enrollment is found in the
Agriculture College.
The question of "should
we assume the obligation of
educating those who can't
get into schools elsewhefe
must be decided by the Chan
cellor, the Board of Regents
and perhaps the Legisla
ture," Hoover said.
At the present time there
is no concentrated effort or
"selling campaign" going on
to attract students to Ne
braska, he explained.
Here in grand-total enroll
ment are the 25 largest col
lege institution. '
