Cold War GI Bill
Would Benefit Many
The Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1961,
commonly referred to as the "Cold War GI Bill" was ini
tiated in January by Sen. R. W. Yarborough of Texas.
The purpose of the bill is to provide educational and
vocational training assistance to all military men who
have served in active duty after January 31, 1955. The bill
calls for the continuation of educational assistance until
July 1, 1963. It would provide educational assistance for a
36-month maximum period.
Broken down, the assistance would be; with no de
pendents, $110 per month; with one dependent, $135; with
more than one dependent, $165.
Since the original GI Bill expired many veterans have
called for federal educational aid. Other groups have
shown interest in a proposal like Sen. Yarborough's.
Many military-conscious college students have also joined
the backers of this idea.
If a measure such as this was passed, college grad
uates this year would become eligible for assistance.
The eligibility would be conditioned upon six months
or more active duty or discharge for service-connected
disability. The period of assistance is calculated by mul-
. - to,- V Jt P A.1 J--
tlplying one ana a nau times eacn aay or acuve uiuy.
For the college graduate who plans to re-enter school, I
either on the professional or graduate level, the program
under this bill would aid considerably.
We urge all students who would be affected by this 1
bill to make a special effort to contact their senator and
get behind the uoia war m sm. -
Around Our Campus
"The University's Agri
culture Extension Depart
ment has more contact with
the people of Nebraska than
any other department of the
University.- It extends the
usefulness of the University
to people In the state not
' formally enrolled in class
work and serves as a re
fresher course for college
graduates or experienced
farmers and homemakers,"
says E. W. Janike, director
of the Agriculture College
Extension service. There
are 260 people on the ex
tension staff; 175 of these
are outstate and are what
we commonly know as
county agents. The rest are
specialists and administra
tors located on the Ag Cam
pus. '
Financed by Federal,
state and county funds, the
Ag extension's responsibility
is to carry the results of re
search and teaching relat
ing tn atrricuKure and home
o o
economics to those not en
rolled in college through a
cooperative extension serv
ice. The residents ef the
state choose what they want
to learn, and information is
prepared at the University
and relayed to them
through the University per
onel located in the coun
ties. Because the University
is a land grant college, Ag
extension handles much of
the educational program for
the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture. Ag ex
tension also works with in
dustry because industry
wants to sell products that
are desirable to the c e n
lumer. "The extension service is
continually being brought
up to date by in-service
training conferences, and
work with research." says
Bill Lutes.
"More is being done in
states in extending educa
tion and recreation to young
married men and women in
the 17-30 age group," re
lates John Orr, associate
state leader of 4-H and
young men and women's
County agents devote ap
proximately 1-3 of their
time to 4-H work. One of the
most outstanding accom
plishments of 4-H in Ne
braska is their leadership

camp especially for older
youth is being established
at Halsey State Park.

signed to help communities
where resources haven't
been developed, according
to Philip S. Sutton, associ
ate state leader in Farm
and Home development.
Some of the accomplish
ments, in and around Sher
man County (the pilot coun
ty) are: a cooperative ele
vator and grain storage pro
ject, two rural fire districts,
a sewage disposal system;
a credit union, the begin
ning of school reorganiza
tion and the development
for conservation and proper
land use. -
The agriculture extension
services work with the de
partments of Agronomy and
Horticulture in their inves
tigation and testing to see
if vegetables and other
crops can be grown com
mercially. Specific crops
being observed are castor
beans, tomatoes, green
beans and safflower.
Another project of exten-.
sion this year was the
Farm Policy workshops,
conducted by Dr. Everett
E. Peterson and Ted R.
Nelson of the Agricultural
economics division. This
was highly planned and
carefully executed by t h e
extension service for key
farmers and those who
service farmers. The work
shops aimed to raise the
understanding of problems
and presented possible so
lutions to problems of man
agement, accounting and
marketing. It was designed
to raise the economic lit
eracy in farming communi
ties by setting up criteria
for evaluating farm policy.
Performance testing of
farm animals is also being
done. Designed to aid the
producer in improving his
herd or flock, it gives the
opportunity to collect data
beneficial in developing the
program in Nebraska. The
feeders want faster growing
animals, and breeders want
ftock that will transmit
these good qualities to off
spring. This performance
testing will meet the de
mands quicker by getting
performance records on
paper. Through the guid
ance of Dr. Paul Q. Guyer,
Dr. Ted H. Doane and Dr.
Leo Lucas, specialists in
Animal Husbandry, and the
county agents, breeders and
feeders . learn how to keep
the records which help in
selecting the animals they
chose to keep in their herd
or flock.

I "Lady of Eternal Spring
I time," the Fred Ballard
Playwriting Contest prize
play, will be presented by
the Department of Speech
I and Dramatic Art in How-
ell Memorial Theater on
March 15, 16, 17 and 18.
In reference to Helen of
Troy, one of the verbose
characters in "Lady of
1 Eternal Springtime" says
that 'one cannot resist Hel-
en.' Actually, it's very easy
to resist the Spartan queen,
and should be just as easy
to resist this poor attempt
at playwriting and play pro-
1 "Lady of Eternal Spring-
time" is supposedly the best
play submitted to the na
s tional Fred Ballard Play-
writing Contest. If this is
the best, I would hate to
imagine what the worst
would be like.
Author Bernard Sabath's
idea is very clever, but the
1 development of the idea is
I incomplete and undramatic.
I At the end of the Trojan
I War, Helen finds herself
bored when she returns to
I Sparta. She wants to repeat
the War, and begins by se-
ducing an island grape mer
I chant called Lukas, who will
i take the place of Paris,
i However, Menelaus, Helen's
Ihusband and avenger,
1 doesn't want to fight again
1 for the woman with the
'face that launched a thou
g sand ships.' Helen decides
I not to run away with Lukas.
i She sends her young imita-
tor, Melirfa, as a pretended
I Helen with Lukas, and the
i real Helen remains in Spar
s ta with Menelaus.
I Sabath's script empha
I sizes the fact that the au
I thor is a short story and fic
i tion writer rather than a
I dramatist. He relies heavily
i on exposition, flowery and
1 prosy language, and episod
1 ic, two character conversa
1 tion structure.
I The author becomes the
i actor since he forces his
1 o w n exposition into the
I character. There are hu
I merous and continuous ref
1 erences to things happening
I or having happened o t f
I stage. Things are talked
1 about rather than shown
i Helen tells us abot Troy,
I Althra tells us Menelaus'
reaction when told Helen
I has fled with Lukas, Melina
tells us her family life.
I Menelaus opens the play
I with an expository speech,
i a gimmick characteristic of
many Shakespearean plays
I to establish a location and-or
attitude. However, in "Lady
of Eternal Springtime," the
exposition never ceases
from one French scene to
the next.
The over-used adjective
dominates Sabath's writing.
Stylistic devices are often
humorous "Stars are
strewn like pedals of a flow
er to show the path to
take," "(Q:) Tell me how
beautifully you will die for
me? (A:) That is a speech
I had not planned to pre
pare," "Say it plainly. Say
you love flattery. (Reply) I
love flattery," "(Q:) ... to
seek immortality with a
Inside View
grape merchant? (A:) It's
the immortality, not the ve
hicle." The most humorous sen
tence occurs when Helen
tells Melina that the young
imitator also wants to see
his name inscrobed up there
in 'poppy colored fire.' This,
I would guess, is neon!
The most enjoyable se
quence occurs in Act Two
in an exchange between
Helen and Menelaus. They
discuss the recent Trojan en
counter and its effect on
each. Here the audience
chuckled. At other times
the audience chuckles, but
they never laugh. I would
guess the play is a comedy
with serious undertones.
In addition to this poor
attempt at playwriting, the
production is also hindered
by the incomplete direction
of Dr. Joseph Baldwin. He
has directed the performers
to move and to recite and
interpret their talky lines,
but the performers do noth
ing. There is little or no
business created for the
The first act, in a Spartan
market place, is full of con
fusion. Salesmen and buy
ers in the market place are
constantly moving and do
ing something. However,
these movements are not
set and exact, but tele
scoped and suggested. Al
though the major actors
talk, the many extras'
crowding the small stage as
sellers, buyers and enter
tainers make no noise. It

One extra, playing a lute,

no music is produced!
There are many other
faults that the director
should have checked and
then changed or improved.
The action of the major per
formers in Act Three is
bloaked entirely upstage. A
'shadow show' by unspspect

just as much or more ac
