    Work-Scholarship Plan in Third Year of Operation
By Janet Sack
Work-scholarships work
well. These sentiments are
echoed by Bob Barnes, as
sistant director of the Ne
braska Union, and Alfred
Calvert, manager of Sel
leck Quadrangle.
The freshman work-scholarship
program was put in
to effect three years ago,
according to Dr. A u b r e y
Forrest, director of the of
fice, of scholarship and fi
nancial aid.
Some 200 jobs both on and
off campus are now re
served for the program. As
many as 500 jobs could be
provided if there was
enough demand.
Under the work-scholarship
program the student
agrees to adjust his class

the fact that the students

"At this point we stand
behind it completely," said
Barnes. "Although we lost
several of the students, this
is only natural in the period
of readjustment for fresh

back later on this year"
Capt. Eugene Masters of
the campus police reports
that in a survey taken every
hour cf every day for a week
last year at this time there
were some 330 spaces avail

150-175 spaces were at Ne

Calvert expressed the

the boys have worked out
very well. The students are

to handle responsibility.
"We are back of the

, Center Discussed
Tbe Nebraska Center for Continuing Education will be
discussed by Dr. Frolik as one of the means. people of all
ages will have to gain the knowledge they need for their
everyday lives in the future.
Another purpose of the "Ag and Space" program wfll
be to acquaint the young people of Nebraska with the
opportunities for careers in agriculture.
Tbe new developments in agriculture such as those ex
hibited in tbe "Ag and Space Age" program are resulting
ia a host of new job opportunities for trained people, ac
cording to Dr. Franklia Eldridge, director of resident In
struction at tbe College of Agriculture.
"Many times a farm background is not a requirement
lor these jobs. In reality, science in agriculture involves the
application of basic scientific techniques to the production
and utilization of agricultural products," Or. Eldridge slated.
"li students today are to take advantage of stew job
opportunities in agriculture tomorrow, they must prepare
by obtaining a well-rounded education. Only then can they
expect to take advantage of tbe challenges that lie ahead,"
Dr. Eldrige asserted. ,

ordinator of student employ

have registered with that
office for work since June
1. The total for all of last
year was only 1,000.
The office has a minimum
of 733 jobs on file and to
date 605 students have been
placed directly through the

Student Parking
Available for student use,
Masters said, are 2231 spaces
on city campus and 55 on Ag
campus plus sorority and fra

as 16th, Vine, and Avery,
which are not included in the

For faculty use there are
460 spaces on city campus
and 276 on Ag campus with
over 100 more faculty stickers
issued to date this year than
last, said Masters.

Pittinger said, "we should be

next 5 to 10 years with the

the number of students who

We are increasing the
amount of available Univer

tinger stated, a student
doestn't need a car as he ar

of convenience and desire to

consin does is only a possi
bility for five to ten years
