UNIVERSITY OF NEBK LIBRARY 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 arbitrarily. "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. the Eighty-Seventh Birthday Display Honors Willa Cather By Nancy Whitford The "World of Willa Cather" is being exhibited on the second floor of Love Memorial library today, the 87th anni versary of her birth. Photographs by David Scherman illustrate the word-pic tures which the noted author excerpts from her works On cemeteries "Cities of the dead, indeed; cities of the forgotten or 'put away.' But this was open and free, this little square of long grass w h i c h the wind forever stirred. Nothing but the sky overhead, and the many col ored fields running on until they met the sky." Neigh bour Rosicky. Pastures, "As I wandered over those rough pastures I had the good luck to stumble upon a bit of the first road . . . to my grandfather's farm . . . this half-mile or so within the pasture fence was all that was left . . . the rains had made channels of the wheel-ruts and washed them so deep that the sod had never healed over them." My Antonla. An old house". . . . encir cled by porches, too narrow for modern notions, support ed by the fussy pillars of that time, when every honest stick of timber was tortured .by the turning-lathe into some thing h i d e o u s." A Lost Lady Winter "Winter has settled down over the divide again, the season in which nature recuperates, in which she sinks to sleep between the fruitfulness of autumn and the passion of spring." 0 Pi neers. Two Weeks The exhibit, arranged by the library and the Univer sity Press, will remain open for two weeks. Bernard Kreissman, assist ant director of libraries for the humanities, noted that Miss Cather is "probably our most outstanding Nebraska author, and that critical work on her writing is still going forward." Several examples of this new critical work are includ ed in the exhibit as well as such rarities as a reprint of her explanation for writing Death Comes, to the Archbish op. Kreissman pointed out that Miss Cather's home town of Red Cloud, Neb.,, which became the fictional setting for many of the towns in hr books, has been listed by Dr. Wiliard Thorp as one of the three best-k nown small American towns, ranking along with Hannibal, Mo. and Concord, Mass.

Interstate 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 j the Navy requested the State Department to obtain tne permit. Not Purchased "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. Migration 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 Med Interviews The Admissions Commit tee of the College of Medi cine will be on campus, Thursday and Friday, to in terview applicants for 1961 admission.- Students whs are interest ed should immediately schedule their appointments by signing the interview registration at 306 Bessey HaU. by the Department of Roads uses 9th and 10th as a one way pair, connecting with 10th just south of Avery Ave. The University has asked that the northbound leg of the access route (10th St. in the Department of Roads plan) be moved westward closer to 9th. Such a move would require purchase of expensive right of way, the Department of Roads has said, including Northwestern Iron and Metal and possibly Hill Hatchery. Owners of these and other properties in the area of the access route were meeting with officials of the Depart ment of Roads, the U.S. Bu re?u of Public Roads, the Uni versity and the Chamber of Commerce. The University has been working with Interstate engi neers in the Department of Roads recently, trying to ob tain cost estimates of the pos sible routes- DR. COSIO f V- 1 .

The total impact of the present birth rate since 1946 "won't be felt until "the "won't be felt until the Get in Gear "The state of Nebraska must gear itself to the large task of educating the large numbers of people," Hoover said. 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 stated. 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. ' College of the City of New York, 77,621; 2. California, 49,169; 3. State University of New York, 44,388; 4.
