Sorenson: 'All Students Should
Consider Summer Schooling
University students should
give serious thought to attend
ing summer school according
to Frank Sorenson, director
of summer sessions.
Sorenson said an accelerat
ed educational program is vi
tal to the student who wants
to take a more responsible
position in his community and
to the. nation as a whole as
America moves into the com
plexities of the space age.
"Students used to be busy
during the summer ," be said,
but they too are beginning to
realize they want to hasten
the day f graduation.
"Education is the best
route to better jobs," he said.
"Students who atted sum
mer school can earn a Bach
elor's degree within three
years after high school grad
uation, and thus begin grad
uate or professional work a
year sooner, he said. i

By Norm Beatty
Steve Gage was elected pres
ident of the 1961-1962 Student
Council Wednesday at the old
Council s final meeting.
There are two meetings
scheduled for the newly-elected
Council before the end of
the semester, according to
Gage who succeeds the out
going president Ken Tem
Gage will be aided by four
other elected holdover mem
bers which include the new
first vice president, Jim Sam

president, Don Witt. Al Plum-
mer and Sukey Tin an will be
the two remaining holdover
The new president an

election, included is the adap

The purpose of this change

Ac Coed Selected
Royal Princess
A 19-year old home eco
nomics major was named as
the Varsity Dairy Club's
"Dairv Oueen Princess" at
the tenth annual Dairy Royal
on Ag campus.
Jean Olsen, a Chi Omega
sophomore, was selected
from a field of five finalists
by the members of the Dairy
Leading eleven entrants in
the annual Coed Cow Milking
contest was Gay Nelson of
Fedde Hall who milked over
two pounds of milk in two
and one-half minutes to take
championship honors. j
Senior Dvision Showman-'

sion Showmanship champion.:
The Royal was held Thurs
day evening in the horsebarn

culture. 1
and architecture have tbe op
portunity to complete the
course in four years.
Sorenson said the summer
programs offer financial as
well as academic advantages.
"If a student were to work
each summer after high school
graduation and cave $5O9-$700
per summer, his total savings
over four years would still be
only half of the St,50-S,SOO he
could earn during tbe added
year f work gained by grad
uating early.
"And there is still time for
plenty of vacation in August,"
Sorenson said.
He said a more mature level
of campus entertainment is
planned during the summer
This includes concerts, for
eign films, off-campus tours
to the Capitol, penitentiary, a
tour of the Lincoln newspa
pers, summer theater presen
tations and a world affairs
and senior students who are
non-Council members.
"Such a program would es
tablish pools of Council man
power to justly handle any
problems which confront the
Council at any one time. It
allows flexibility with the com
mittee framework to compen
sate for overworked council
members and underworked
council members," he noted.
Under this plan Council
members would aid the non
Council members in acquaint
ing them with Council func
tioning. At the same time
non-Council members would
aid the regular members by
helping with the busy work
that binders the smooth op
eration of the Council itself,
Gage explained.
Freshmen and sophomores
who demonstrate an interest
and an ability to contribute
to the work or the Council
would be recommended "as
