Youth Can Strengthen State
(Continued from Page 1)
the vast, uncrowded frontiers of Nebraska."
Finally, the Chamber hat provided services to the
300 local Chamber of Commerces in Nebraska, many of
which do not have a paid executive, to guide or assist
them in expanding present industrial facilities, obtaining
better schools and recreational programs and attracting
new industry.
Mel Steen, State Game Commissioner, in an exclusive
interview, said that we need to broaden the economic
base of the state as rapidly as possible.
"Since 1890 and .the end of Nebraska's boom period
it is estimated that we have lost almost one million
people. With agriculture as our chief industry, we sold
products to other states on which we made no profit
and bought products .from other states on which they
made considerable profit
"We simply can't have more outgo than income. We
need to broaden our economic base to find new markets
and manufacture new specialties so that we dont have
to depend so completely on agriculture's big gross and
short profit. To do this is to remove the reason for Ne
braska's traditional conservatism.
- Need Tourism
"One of the greatest opportunities for bringing more
income into the state immediately is to tap the wealth
of tourism. In the tourist trade, a man pays our price
for using our outdoor recreational facilities and for en
joying our historical and natural attractions.
By improving our recreational facilities in areas as
boating and parks which our state is doing now, we add
major industry to Nebraska providing greater job op
portunities here and make the state more attractive to
its vouth as a better place to live.
In a telephone interview, Jim Grant of Crete ex
plained a unique youth-attracting program called the
Crete Opportunity Days."
Sponsored jointly by the local Chamber of Commerce
and the school system, Crete Opportunity Days gave 68
high school seniors credit while they worked and learned
in a business city office or industrial plant. Merchants
officials, technicians and executives explained mark-up,
promotion advertising, responsibilities of the job, econom
ic pecularities of Crete, and the opportunities that exist
for that youth if he remains in Crete.
As to the results of the program, now in its second
year, Grant told of a man now attending the University
studying marketing who will return to the J C Penny
store at Crete after graduation, if possible .prompted by
the days several years ago he spent working on the
managerial side of J C Penney's.
In an interview, Freeman Decker, State Commission
er of Education, said that Nebraska will continue to lose
its youth until it becomes more industrialized.
Trade Schools
"Our department has been promoting trade schools
to attract industry with highly-skilled labor supply. To
day, many of our craftsmen and fender and body men
are from Nebraska trade schools. The Monroe Shock
Absorber Co. of Cozad, for example, said not long ago
that they could use an additional 500 of our graduates
and would build more branches to let them work in if
they could get them. ......
"We had to turn 200 away from our over crowded
trade schools last fall who wanted to enter.
"Also," Decker said, "we can't expect our teachers
to stay in Nebraska unless we set our sights on paying
higher salary for these professional people. What teach
er wouldn't go to California or Oregon if he could get
from $l,000-$2,000 more each year. We've got to recog
nize that teacher's have to eat, too." And don't overlook
the sales pitches on climate and living conditions new
teachers get from the men from Texas to California who
hire them."
Make Sacrifices
Sam Jensen, a former senior in law school, said:
The people who need to do the public relations for Ne
braska are some of our better graduates the ones
who don't stay in Nebraska. This is the problem. We
are being robbed of our best potential leadership. We need
a few students who will make a few sacrifices and go
back to their home towns and exercis leeadership for the
state and the University.
Yes as Dave Osterhout of the Nebraska Resources
Division pointed out Wednesday, adult and youth are
beginning to take hold of the problems that exist in
Nebraska and to become excited about the potential and
opportunity of the state.
Monday, in the final article of the series, we will
contrast the strengths of Nebraska against the strengths
and weaknesses of other states under the topic Is the
Grass Really Greener."

Dear Mr, Siegel:
' I'm certain my letter
won't be published be
cause it. will probably be
tost in the deluge of an
swers to your charges. I
find it hard to believe
that you take such a neg
ative view in more that
a superficial vain.
If I were yon, I
wouldn't count Uncle Sam
put until I had conducted
a very exhaustive investi
gation. Sure we've got our
problems, but most na- J
tions do. I'm certain we
can solve ours, because
we've got people to meet
them free people! Peo
ple who use their minds
in the way you are being
taught to use your mind.
Dictators are successful
at first because they can
use the full resources of
their subjects immediate
ly. We're slower, but once
"Joe" gets his back to it,
he really pushes. Illustra
tions of this can be found
in the following vintage
years of strife and glory,
1812, 1861, 1917, 1930, 1941,
1950 and 1961.
Mr. Siegel, you say that
our nation isn't as iner
getic as Russia, well,
read these figures from
the nearly unobtainable
Steel .... 59to 93 Mtn.
Pig Iron . 43 to 60 Mtn.
El'city ...247 to 797 KWH
People .. .220 to 187 Mill.
These statistics seem to
make Mr. Siegel's argu
ment inconsistent.
As for Democracy's
withstanding crisis, we
can again use the above
dates, but I have wish to
close now. If this is a
John Birch test letter or
its analogy that I'm an
swering, I would like to
say the following. I dis
like extremes of any
stripe which tend to de
prive a man of his demo
cratic rights. I want de
mocracy and not just its
name. You see, I have a
big mouth and like to
use it.

In 1927, they became a na

chapters throughout the Unit

limited to ROTC students and
it is basically freshmen and
sophomores. Upper classmen
continue only as officers of
the group.
The object of the group is
to 'foster the spirit of unity
