WiVsRsmr op NKK Ag&ard Action Prompts Extension of Library Hours uruive w ..w. .... , By Jlm t orrest A proposal presented by the Ag Exec Board which calls for the temporary ex jpflgjnn of Ag Library hours " (on a test basis) has re-, ceived full approval from the Administration. Adam C. Breckenridge, dean of faculties, announced Friday that his office had instructed Frank Lundy, di rector of University libra ries, to work out a plan that would extend the library hours to 10:30 p.m. for the rest of this semester and the 1961 Fall semester. Late Friday afternoon Lundy reported that he had met with his staff and that "as soon as a responsible person can be found to su pervise the late shift and the campus police have Training Center Faculty Supports Peace Corps Plan Enthusiastic faculty support has been given the Peace Corps program, necessary if Nebraska is to be successful as a Peace Corps training center. In one of a series of special faculty interviews, Dr. Rob ert Sakai, professor of Far Eastern History, reflected that "The faculty of the University have been stimulated by the possibilities of the Peace Corps. The opportunity for accom plishing good greatly outweighs the pitfalls of the program." Dr. J. C. Olson, Chairman of the Department of History, emphasized "The Peace Corps is a dramatic and imagina- tive expression of the spirit that built America." Professor of Russian His tory Dr. A. T. Anderson re marked "We cannot sell short the capacity of American friendliness and good will to gain the confidence of people abroad as to the good inten tions of our government and people. And who can deny the positive impression made upon people abroad when they ofr serve American youth leaving an affluent society of abun dance in order to help oth ers?" "The Peace Corps will not revolutionize our world posi tion," cautioned Dr. Norman Hill, professor of Internation- al Relations in Political Sci ence, "but it embodies some of the initiative and Imagina tion which we need to fight the cold war.' Dr. Edward I. Fry, assist ant professor of anthropology, labeled the project an "Ex ellent idea, if we can pro vide the Peace Corps mem bers with adequate training in the culture of the nation to which they will be sent." Challenge Dr. Anderson outlined the challenge which faces the Peace Corps: "The American youth is challenged not to impose his culture and government on other people of the world, but to aid them in developing a viable way of living to re duce starvation, illiteracy and disease. Americans must eventually begin to think of devoting a part of their life to other people of the world, but sending talent abroad which today considers its first re sponsibility to establish a business and a home once college has been completed." Dr. Olson cautioned that the U.S. must be modest in their start to insure initial success. "If the first group does not make a good impression, we might as well abandon the pro ject," said Dr. Anderson. Dr. Fry noted, "It would be a waste of knowledge and ability to send a college-prepared teacher to fix tractors or build roads. This is no Boy Scout venture We must match the job with talent." "The Peace Corps is not a joy ride, as many who in tended to enter seem to think. And we cannot become so im mersed in creating good will that we do the exact oppo site," Dr. Hill interjected. Nebraskans Effective Does Nebraskan's boast of longevity and health better qualify our youth as "Peace Corps members than youths from other states? Dr. Sakai added, "Nebraska youth are largely drawn from an agricultural population which does not shrink from manual labor. Familiar with the soil, these youths are in a unique position to work alongside the peasant and fanner from Asia to Africa, dispelling the Communist in spired impression of the American as the 'big, fat capitalist'." "Midwesterners strike a kind of balance in American qualities which are considered good," said Dr. Anderson. "This region, if not the best from which to draw talent, certainly is near the top of the reservoir of talent." Effects And what will the actual im- (Continued to page 4) been informed of the ex tended hours, the new sys tem will go Into effect." The library director went on to say that the change "f will probably take place sometime this week. The new hours for the Ag library will be 7:40 a.m. 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7:40 a.m.-4:50 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Spring Day to be Bigger, By Sue Hovik Jousting, roller skating, egg blowing and bicycle ob stacle racing contests are just a few of the many games organized houses, dorms and co-ops may enter in the Spring Day competition. This year, Spring Day competition will be held on Ag campus. This new location will offer a bigger and better game site plus opportunities for a wider variety of games. Two men from each men's organization will enter the jousting competition. The man riding on the other man's shoulders will not be allowed to be tied or strapped on.

The object is to dismount the opponent's rider or drive them out of the three-foot lane in two out of three matches. Five member teams from each women's organization will compete in the roller skating relay. Wearing regula tion steel-wheeled roller skates, each girl will skate around the Ag campus mall. One member from each team will start on a given signal, skate around the mall, and tag the next girl in line. The winner will be the team to complete the course first. Egg Blowing - In the egg blowing contests, one girl from each organi zation will move an eggshell 20 feet to the finish line by blowing only. Crawling on hands and knees behind the egg were distributed by the Ag Exec Board. The poll was initiated aft er a reply was received from the Student Council to voice an opinion. The reply stated nothing could be done unless the Board in-1 vestigated the complaints concerning the Ag library still further. , The campus improvement committee of the Board with the aid of other mem bers felt some concrete facts and evidence were needed, according to Russ Edeal, Ag Exec represent ative from Alpha Zeta.

When the results of the poll were tabulated and pre sented to the B o a r d, its members voted to recom mend the proposed changes. The proposal was then for warded to the Administra tion for action. Longer Hours Needed Many students and faculty members of the college have a very serious prob lem and great need for longer Ag library hours. This is shown, said Edeal, by the return of 387 of the 700 of the polls distributed, or a return of 55.3 per cent. A large majority of the students polled, 86 per cent, her for the Fifth Circuit, compris ing Texas, Louisiana, Flor ida, Georgia, Alabama, Mis sissippi and the Canal Zone.

The faculty did not favor extending the hours but they did express the opinion that students would probably need it, said Edeal. The results of the poll also showed that 88 per cent of the students who an swered the poll wanted the library open on weekends, especially Sunday. Although the original rec ommendation from the Board called for a 11 p.m. extension Dean Brecken ridge suggested that the hours be extended only un til 10:30 p.m. "If we find there is a war rant for extending the hours The Nebraskan science society, Mu Epsilon Nu, honorary teachers soci ety,, and this year is the re cipient of the Herbert Brown ell Scholarship.

Extension Is Improvement "The 10:30 p.m. extension is an improvement," said Edeal, who coordinated the work on the poll. "We thought that the 11 p.m. closing hour would be more beneficial, but if it is the Administration's experience with Love library that 10:30 p.m., is sufficient then it would be advantageous for us to go along with them." Lundy said that extending the library hours from the present 73 hours per week to the proposed 86 hours per week will cost an additional $100 in salary this semester o inree book and president of Inno cents Society and Corn Cobs.
