championship Monday night with a 77-67 win Over a de
termined band of Cornhuskers at the Coliseum.
A crowd estimated at 8,000 turned out to see if Nebraska
could upset the Wildcats Just as they did Kansas Saturday

Free Throws Missed

guarding the Byron native.

Demand Grows for Outdoor
Recreation Facilities in State
Editor's note: The following
article was written by Larry
Novicki, a student 1 in the
School of Journalism .
Outdoor recreation is be
coming more than a great
University pastime; actually
it has marked a state and
even a national development.
But in Nebraska the grow
ing craze of ' outdoorsmg '
has been accompanied by a
money need amounting to 12.2
million dollars in order to de
velop the state's outdoor facil
ities. This money would pro
posedly be raised through an
increase in property taxes if
the legislators see fit to call
upon Nebraskans to accept
the increase.
Meanwhile, many of the
state's communities have
been calling on the Univer
sity's Community Services
department to obtain help in
planning outdoor recreation
projects in t h e i r municipal
Why all the attention to out
door recreation?
There are several reasons.
Some are direct and obvious;
some are more subtle; and
some are indirect and ambig
uous. Two obvious reasons for the
need for more recreation are
population changes and in
creased travel and mobility.
There are more people in
the country who can hop into
fine automobiles and travel
good roads to get some place
faster than ever before.
New Craze
Income changes, increased
leisure and a new craze for
outdoor activity create a need
for more recreation.
Attraction of industry and
development of tourist trade
indirectly require better facil
ities for outdoor recreation.
In the next 25 years, 80
million new Americans will
seek food, shelter and recre
ation in this nation. By the
turn of the century, the Unit
ed states will have a popula

ly twice what it has now.
By 1985 there is expected
td be 40 million more auto
mobiles in the country than
there are now. By then, pri

house the family helicopter
instead of the family car.
Statisticians predict that
per-capita income will double
by the year 2000. Per-capita
income has increased irregU'
larly but substantially in the
last decade, and if the new
administration carries out its
program, income will in
crease even more rapidly.
Work weeks have become
shorter. The 48-hour work
week of not many-years ago
has been cut to 44 hours and
then to 40. Many workers are
on the job only 37 hours,
and there is talk of the 35
hour and even 30-hour weeks.
More Leisure Time
All this will give Americans
more leisure time and a prob
lem of finding something to
do during it.
A new craze for outdoor
recreation has hit the nation
According to a group of
manufacturers of sporting
equipment, the top three par
ticipation sports in 1960 were
boating, hunting and fishing,
and camping.
Some communities and
states develop their recrea
tional facilities in the hopes
of attracting industries and of
creating profitable tourist
Otto Hoiberg, Director of
Community Services at the
University, says, "Any indus
try that is looking for a loca
tion is not only interested in
electric power, transportation
and labor, but in schools,
churches and recreational
and cultural opportunities in
the community and its sur
rounding area."
Mel O. Steen, Director of
the State Game, Forestation
and Parks Commission feels
that Nebraska has" the poten
tial to create a half billion
dollar a year tourist industry.
This industry would be sec
ond only to agriculture.
Outdoor Needs
What does Nebraska have
and what does it need, it any

Outdoor recreation is gen
erally classified into three1
major groups: 1, User-oriented;
2, Intermediate; 3, Resource-based.

Frosh Top Dents
In Close Game
By Norm Beatty
The Nebraska freshman basketball team continued to
hold its jinx over their Dental College opponents last night
in taking a 65-52 win.
Outhustled at the outset of the clash, Coach Don Smidt's
starting five pulled themselves back into the ball game with
a sustained scoring attack aided by good board control.
The Dents jumped to a I
quick 10-2 lead before the
freshmen could find the
range. Highlighting the early
lead was newcomer Don
Vyhnlaek who surprised
everyone by hitting six of the
Dent's first 10 points. He end
ed up with 19 points for the
evening, high for the Dents.
The Frosh's highest scorer,
Daryl Petsch, evened the
game with his effective long
range bombing. He also hit
for 19 counters during the
Big Bill Vincent scored six
of his nine points within three
minutes to cut the Dent lead
to 13-14, to tie the score 15-15
with 11:11 remaining in the
first half and to put the
frosh in command for keeps
with one of his patented hook
shots with 9:34 left in the
Petsch, Chuck Sladovnik
and Charlie Jones combined
their efforts after Vincent's
flurry of points to give the
freshmen a 32-36 half-time
After the frosh managed to
contain Vyhnlaek, Bob Pro-
kop spiced the Dent attack
for the remainder of the first
half with his variety of shots
ranging from one - handed
push shots to twisting lay-ups.

ally within an hour's drive of
the user. Because of size and
character, these areas are
not considered to have ma
jor park potential. Nebraska's
"recreation areas," such as
the new Two Rivers Recrea
tion Area fall in this classi
fication. Resource - based recreation
also occurs on outlying areas,
but only on those having the
resources required for a ma
jor state park, such as moun
tains, large lakes, falls, riv
ers or timber lands. Ponca
Park Falls is in this classi
fication. Nebraska presently has
about 28,000 total acres of
state owned or controlled land
in these three categories. Of
this total, only 2,674 acres are
in major state parks (Resource-based),
25,233 acres
are in Intermediate recrea
tion areas, and 326 acres are
in User - oriented recreation
Only 8,278 acres of this
total are owned by the state.
The rest is leased. The state
leases additional land for
public fishing and hunting
grounds, refuges, fish hatch
eries, etc., which is wildlife
management land and is nei
ther adapted to nor available
for park purposes.
Three Acres
Private and public agencies
in the field of recreation have
established a minimum stand
ard of three acres of public
recreational land for each 100
persons of state population.
According to this standard,
Nebraska would need 12,000
more acres of public recrea
tional land to meet present
population demands and even
more to take care of in
creased population in the fu
ture. Hoiberg and Steen say that
Nebraska's potential for
recreational d evelopment Is
great both in communities
and in outlying areas.
' There is much to be de
sired," says Hoiberg, "but
with a relatively small ex
penditure our communities
could do a lot better."
According to Hoiberg, there
are four steps to the develop
ment of community recrea
tion: 1, organization; 2, facil
ities; 3, programs; and 4,
Communities usually take
care of the first two steps by
themselves. A recreation
board, women's club or civic
organization can provide the
organization. Most communi
ties have the facilities such
as parks, open lots, etc.
With the help of the Com
munity Services organization,
proper programs can be outlined.

The major problem con
fronted by small communities
is the lack of leadership. In
order to have sufficient su
pervision for a well-planned
summer recreation program,
a community must hire a
qualified person to take
charge of the program. Such
persons are scarce, and many
communities cannot afford
them, or do not find it nec
essary to afford them.

for development of state rec
