Ag YMCA Founder, Counselor
Leaves Post After Forty Years
A University staff member whose name has been
synonymous with the Agricultural College branch of the
YMCA (Ag-Y) for almost 40 years is almost retiring from
active association with the group but not quite.
Dr. Carl E. Rosenquist, who organized the Ag-Y in
1923 and helped hold it together through some difficult
early years, is relinquishing his longtime post as Ag-Y
advisor. But his name is still connected with the student
group as honorary chairman of the 1961-62 membership
drive which opens with a kick-off dinner Wednesday.
After laying the foundation of Ag-Y In 1923, Dr. Rosen
quist left Nebraska to teach at the University of Illinois
for tw years. When he returned to the state, he found he
fledgling rganizaion struggling for survival. He Immedi
ately began to rebuild it.
"We instigated a program designed to help freshmen,"
he recalled. "I spent many evenings in the Ag-Y room in
Agricultural Hall helping freshmen with their courses."
Emphasis on "how to study" aimed primarily at freshmen
was continued for many years.
A sister "Y" organization on the city campus grew,
shriveled and "died on the vine," Dr. Rosenquist noted,
but the Ag-Y has been continuously active through the
years, and members are looking forward to its 40th an
niversary in the spring of 1962.
Discussion about religion and student problems were
very common in earlier meetings of Ag-Y, as is true today,
the longtime botany professor observed.
"In the early days, many freshmen in college were
away from home for the first time. They needed help and
understanding. They needed the company of other boys
who had the same ideals and problems. They also needed
to work out and embrace a philosophy of life wiUi God
as the focal point," he concliHed.
Richard Bringelson, ApY president, said it is hoped
that current membership o. 25 can be doubled during the
impending membership drive. Ag-Y membership chair
man Elray Nieman has named Jay Graf as "head boss
of the drive. j
Graf will work with "section bosses" Ray Preston and
Jesse Felker who in turn are supervising six "freshmen"
and 24 "riders." The total membership team of S3 men
Ag students will call on 165 prospects, with the drive
slated to end October 26.

Blue Print
Covers Win
Frist Place
The Nebraska Blue Print
won first place for best covers
for the 1960-61 school year
and second place for the April
cover at the convention for
Engineering College Maga
zines Associated held at the
University of Michigan.
Delegates from the Univer
sity were Mike Hewlett, man
aging editor of the Blue Print,
Lynn Corcoran, article editor,
and Professor Thomas Smith
faculty advisor.
Hewlett said that Toshiro
Isa,' art director, "received
many, many compliments
from other schools there on
the beautiful Job he's done
on drawing covers." Toshiro
Isa uses one of the articles
in die magazine for the idea
and makes a symbolic cover.
The ideas presented at the
convention were based on the
fact that engineering publica
tions are designed to give
engineering students an op
portunity to write on techni
cal subjects. Industries
stressed the importance of
engineers not only knowing
the technical material, but al
so being able to express their
thought on it
The convention consisted of
the annual business meeting,
committee meetings, and clin
ics on article writing, layout
practices, cover design and
others giving advice to maga
zines in different aspects of
the field. The keynote address
was given at the Awards Ban
quet by Dr. Ralph Snyder,
Dean of School of Graduate
Studies and Vice-president for
Research at the University of
Michigan Technic, the
Michigan University engineer
ing magazine, sponsored the
convention. They planned trips
to the Dearborn plant and
Phoenix Project, a pool nu
clear reactor.
The Nebraskan Blue Print
will go on sale later this
month. Members of Engineer
ing Society will sell them.
Engineering students inter
ested in working on the Blue
Print can contact Hewlett or
Dick Meyers, editor, at the
Theta Xi fraternity house.

Post Card Incident
Brings Corps Criticism
Students in the small Afri
can country of Nigeria have
demanded the ouster of the
entire Pace Corps team in
that country.
The demands have come
after an announcement by the
director of the Peace Corps,
Sargent Shriver, that a new
Peace Corps project has been
proposed for the Federation of
A post card written and
mailed by Peace Corpswomen
Margery Michelmore, 23, of
Foxboro, Mass., went astray
and. was found by students
near the Ibadan University
campus. The Ibadan Students'
Union called Miss Michel
more's remarks "damaging to
our country" and demanded
her and other members of the
Peace Corps in Nigeria taken
out of the country.
The postcard was copied
and circulated among some
1,500 Negro students at the
University. The postcard read
as follows:
"Dear Bobbo:
Dont be furious at get
ting a postcard. I promise a
letter next time. I want you
to see the incredible and
fascinating city we were in.
With aQ the training we had
we were really not prepared
for the squalor and abso
lutely primitive living con
ditions rampant both in the
cities and the bush.
"We had no idea about
what 'underdeveloped'

elation and once we got
over the initial shock, it is
a very rewarding experi
ence. Everyone except us
lives ia the streets, cooks
in the streets and even
goes to the bathrooms in the
streets . .
After this incident Miss Mi
chelmore wrote a letter of
apology to the University of
Ibadan in which she said she
had offered her resipation
from the Peace Corps.
Sent Apology
She also sent a letter of
apology to the president of
the university hall where she
was staying. In effect she
said she was sorry for hav
ing written the thoughtless
postcard and would like to
stay in Nigeria.

"to spy on what you are do
ing." A little before this incident
broke out in Nigeria, the di
rector of the Peace Corps
made his announcement con
cerning the new program for
the Federation of Malaya. '
There is no report as of yet
as to whether the Nigerian
ouster will alter any or all of
the Corps program.
Health, Education
The new project provides
for volunteers to begin work
ing in Malaya early next year
in the fields of health, educa
tion and ruraldevelopment
Some forty candidates for
the assignment began an
eight-week training program
Monday at Northern Illinois
University. The University is
especially competent in Ma
layan studies.
Shriver emphasized that it
was developed in response to
a request for a Peace Corps
program from the Federation
of Malaya. The request was
submitted to Shriver last May
during a visit to the Malayan
"In the four months since
that 1 1 m e." Shriver said,
"representatives of the Peace
Corps and the Malayn govern
ment have energetically
worked out the program and
reached the point where
training can begin."
Nurses, Technicians
About 25 of the Volunteers
will be nurses and laboratory
technicians who will work in
understaffed district hospitals
under the general supervision
of the Malayan Ministry of
Health and Social Welfare.
Remaining members will
serve as teachers of physics,
chemistry, biology, and math
ematics, as apprenticeship in
structors in a variety of tech
nical trades and as rural de
velopment workers, helping to
survey and build roads and to
analyze soils.
