Forty-Five Ag Voca Hons
Viewed by 700 Students
By Cloyd Clark
Seven hundred students as
sembled in the Ag Activities
building Thursday at the be
ginning of the second Ag Op
portunities conference, a vo
cational clinic which intro
duced them to 45 different
ag-oriented vocational fields.
Peace Corps, U.S. Border
Patrol, Sugar Industry, wild
life service and ag extension
are representative of the differ
ent categories which brought
representatives from i n d u s
try and departments such
as John Deere and DeKalb
and the U.S. Foreign Service
from all over the United
States to introduce University
students to opportunities in
Many students think that
the only use for a college ed
ucation in agriculture is to
become a county agent or vo
cational ag instructor. These
are the only college gradu
ates in ag that students are
acquainted with, according to
Charles Adams, asst. profes
sor in animal husbandry at
the Ag College and coordina
tor for the conference.
Each representative of in
dustry attempted to introduce
his particular field, explain
the requirements and help
the student plan his college
education to prepare for such
a career.
One representative, a grad
uate of Nebraska some years
ago, commented that "there
was nothing like this when
I was in school."
That representative was
Bob Wheeler, plant manager
for Wilson and Co. in Omaha.
Wheeler went onto evaluate
the program as "presenting a
challenge to the undergradu
ate along with the education
of the opportunities in o u r
"We are fighting not com
munism but ignorance," Rich

representative from Washing

pointed out that the Peace
Corps will need 1200 corps
workers with Ag backgrounds
by this time next year.'

impressed "by the quality of
the men.
"There were a number o
students in the sessions who
would be eagerly sought by
any company and would have
no difficulty in fulfilling the
requirements of those b u s i
nesses," Kathe said.
The general attitute of the
different industry representa
tives and students interviewed
by this reporter seemed to in
dicate that the conference
was directed toward the lower
classman to help him plan
his college education to meet
the different requirements of
his field.
"Not just jobs, but educa
tional requirements for jobs.
The sooner the student can
begin working on his special
ity the better," Kathe said.
"Programs such as this
conference are. extremely vi-
tai.They stimulate a student
to think of what he wants to
make out of his life and how
to do it," commented Chester
Peters, director of placement
at Kansas State University
and guest speaker for the con
ference banquet Thursday
"The conference is expe
cially effective because of the
student organization which it
contains," Peters added in
reference to the Ag Exec
board efforts and work in the
planning and carrying out of
the conference.
"If only 20 per cent are
benefited by the conference it
will be a success as far as I
am concerned," the Kansas
State placement director
In his speech to approxi
mately 170 students and in
dustry representatives Peters
criticized the student for not
"spending enough time find'
ing out what he wants to do."
"Write yourself a note
pointing out your likes and
dislikes, then find yourself and
after that discover your op
portunities and work for
them," Peters proposed to the

The number of shots
the hunters tendency to
ward long range shooting
or "sky busting."
It is the author's opinion
that the present two boxes
of shells per man is too
liberal. Under the 1960
Ohio daily bag limit of
three ducks, this per
mitted approximately 17
shots per duck. Judging
from the study record of
15.83 shots per bird
bagged, it seems logical
to infer that this prompts
hunters to take long, un
warranted shots a n d, in
effect to "burn out" the
A conspicuous example
of the "sky busting" psy
chology was noted on No
vember 17. The two hunt
ers in Blind Five were
seen to shoot at every
duck that came into view;
some as far away as 400
yards. The result was
high-flying ducks in that
sector of the marsh. The
hunters in the study blind
contained their wrath un
til eleven o'clock, when
one shouted, "If you want
to do a lot of shooting,
why the hell don't you go
to Camp Perry?" The
sportsmen in Blind Five
replied by suggesting a
course of action both un
fit to print and impossible
to accomplish. Not to be
outpointed so handily, the
study blind hunters spirit
edly opened fire on Blind
These outspoken oppo
nents of long range shoot
ing required 11 shots to
determine that Blind Five
was beyond their range.
Since my hunting ex
perience ths year in
volved pushing a car
over some greasy hills af
ter it was discovered that
the good farmer had
moved the milo field that
had been so popular with
the pheasants the year be
fore. After two shots at a
sparrow and a three
hour trek over two miles
of hills my hunting was
finished. This experience
and lack of hunter profici
ency suggests that I
shouldn't comment on
whether hunters are either
liars or poor shots on

and smoke more of them than any other regular. Still, there is one kind of
Lucky that tastes a little bit better than any other kind. These extra-special
