Planetarium Sky Shows
Commence Fourth Year
On March 23 Mueller Plan
etarium, a division of the Uni
versity State Museum, will
complete its third year of op
eration. During these three years
more than 80,000 people of all
age groups have visited "The
Theater of the Stars."
Sky shows in the planetari
um are changed approximate
ly once every month and a
half. The programs feature
lectures by personnel of the
state museum and give the
viewers an inside look at the
heavens. Currently showing
is "Astrology Fact or Fic
tion?" For untold centuries man
believed in the influence of
the stars upon human desti
nies. This belief, astrology,
persisted as the most intellec
tual movement of all epochs.
It infected every culture, no
matter what the prevailing
religion, and it infiltrated
every level of education.
It was based upon the sun's
position to that of the stars
and the star patterns at the
time of birth. This set of cir
cumstances was thought to
have a determining factor on
a person's character and fate.
The sky show traced the
origin and development of this
belief. Stars of a special sig

Teacher Grads
Fail To Teach .
Less than three-fourths of
the Teachers College gradu
ates in the United States en
tered teaching careers last
year, according to the Associ
ated Press.
These figures were printed
in a new booklet published by
the National Education As
sociation (NEA). This booklet
blamed the small number on
low teachers salaries.
The NEA has established a
goal to raise teacher salary
averages to $10,750 by 1964-65
compared to the current fig
ure of 5,389.
Even at this new high,
teachers salaries would only
be about 75 per cent of the
average for other professional
earnings, the NEA stated.
The association said the
teachers added last year met
only about half the demand
for new teachers this school
year. The other half, NEA
said, was met by former
teachers returning to the pro
fession or persons not trained
for teaching.

should these people be de
prived of equal benefits that
will accrue to those who
chose to remain in their
'. own country and begin seek
ing a future.
Some persons argue that
corps members should re
ceive a salary equivalent to
the average college gradu
ate's starting wage in this
country. The proponents of
this plan feel that this mon
ey could be placed in a bank
in this country and be here
when the corps member fin
ishes his tour of duty. It is
maintained that this will
provide an added incentive
to those exceptionally qual
ified individuals, who other
wise would have no mon
etary reward waiting for
them and might give a sec
ond thought to whether the
experience abroad would
really be worth it.
Opponents of this argu
ment feel ihat the natives of
the country where the corps
member was serving would
soon learn that although the
volunteers were living and
eating just like the natives,
they had the incentive of
money waiting for them at
home pushing them on to
their duty, and this might
create hard feelings on the
part of the natives.
Not so, argue the propo
nents. The natives would
more than likely have an
added respect for those
Americans who would give
up the chance to live on a
$5,000 or $6,000 salary a
year at home to come over
seas and live as a native
with no benefits whatsoever,
untU they returned home
two or three years later.
Most important is that a
peace corps is needed, cer
tainly as well organized and
as lucrative as possible, but
not to the point of being
bureaucratic, or it will be
not better than the critics
of the foreign service con
sider that branch of the gov
ernment. A Lincoln minister who
spent some time in Mexico
not long ago, remarked re
cently about the deadness
of activity around the Unit
ed States embassy as com
pared to the number of Rus
sian students that were
rushing around their em
bassy and milling in the
8 1 r e e t s, talking to their
Mexican counterparts and
promoting the unrest in
Mexico. With the standard
of living of our neighbors to
the south as low as it is, we
cannot expect to sit idly by
and assume that the Sovi
ets have no chance of gain
ing a foothold in Mexico. It
has been amply demonstrat
ed by the status of Cuba
that all is not well in the
Western Hemisphere.
It should be evident that
time can not be wasted in
organizing the peace corps
into an effective and mean
ingful weapon for liberty
and freedom.
