Council Wants All
PZan IFiZZ Limit
Frosh Drivers
A plan o restrict the areas
in which freshmen commu
tors who jive more than
eight blocks from campus
could park beginning next
fall was suggested by Park
ing Committee Chairman
Steve Cass.
"These special freshman
lots might be the Elgin lot
and Freburger lot near the
10 street viaduct." said
"Center campus I?ts and
campus streets would be re
served for upperclassmen's
cars, although the upperclass
tiian would also be allowed
to park in the freshman
lots," added Cass.
Seven hundred of 3500 cars
registered with the campus
police last semester belonged
to University freshman, ex
plained Cass.
Carl Donaldson, University
business manager, is report
ed in favor of the new Coun
cil plan if details can be
worked out.
The final decision on the
freshman parking in restrict
ed lots must be taken by the
Student Council before the
.University is ready to act on
the suggestion, however.
Cass also reported that
some 500 additional spaces
will be made available next
fall for campus parking.
"The present Foreburger
lot will be enlarged to include
all the 'area north of Avery
Drive near the railroad
tracks," he said.
With this additional space
and the lack of overcrowding
at present, no restriction or
ban on freshman or soph
omore cars is planned.

Traveler Columnist
Addresses Students
Colin Jackson, a world
traveler, columnist, and com
mentator for BBC, tabbed by
many as the "delight of col
lege audiences," will speak
at 11 a.m., today at a Uni
versity student convocation in
the Student Union.
Jackson, who was in Africa
durirg December and Janu
ary, will give a "Report on
Africa, 1962."
A Scot by birth, Jackson is
an Oxford graduate and a
Adept at spicing his talks
with good doses of British
humor, he has made several
appearances on the Univer
sity campus in recent years
as a lecturer and visiting
staff member.
His special interest lies in
the field of political science
and "international relations."
Last summer, Jackson trav
eled through Algeria, parts of
the Middle East, and Com
munist China.
Addressing a political sci
ence class Wednesday, Jack
son pointed out that he pays
his own expenses on his trav
elsthat way he is more free
from influences.
Referring to "that beatnik
dictator in Cuba," Jackson
commented that if the free
world "shuts all the shutters
and slams all the doors, they
are likely to move solidly to
the Communist bloc.
"Cuba is an irritant an af
front to you," he continued.
But, Americans could make
the Cuban situation useful in
influencing other Latin Amer
ican countries against Com
munism by "showing up what
a mess Castro and Commun
ism has made of Cuba."
It's a pity, he noted crypti
cally, "that you can't tow
Cuba down the South Ameri
can coast."
As for the rumored split be
tween Moscow and Peiping,
Jackson pointed out that Ken
nedy could not lend empha
sis to this because it would
drive the two back together
to present a "united" Com
munist front.
"What I did while in Com
munist China," he said, "was
to tell them what a beautiful
job Russia had done in build
ing THEM up" that shook
them up, he noted.
The Daily

bathing, and
three basic problems (1)
communication and coopera
tion between the two; (2)
projects through which both
groups could better the Uni
versity, and (3) merits of
Greek Week.
Nancy Tederman suggested
that a committee composed
of Panhell and IFC represen
tatives work together on com
mon problems of fraternities
and sororities. ,
Exchange was the basis of
a suggestion by Mary Wither
spoon that an interchange of
ideas between Panhell and
IFC would allow either group
to adapt useful ideas to suit
their needs.
Cites Scholarship
Roger Myers, vice-president
of IFC, cited scholarship as
an area in which both groups
could work together. Frater
nity scholarship in particu
lar could benefit from such
action, he noted.
In a discussion on commu
nity service projects, and the
motives behind them, John
Nolon, president of IFC, point
ed out that Greek Week
serves as an example of such
activities which should con
tinue throughout the year.
Often, he noted, the original
motive for such projects may
vary from an altruistic one to
one of public relations, but
that which such a project is
underway, the altruistic mo
tive generates its success.
Panhell Talks

Room Rush
The Panhellenic rush com
mittee has proposed changes
in the booklet on rushing
which will eliminate room
rushing during sorority rush
week next fall.
The changes were discussed
by all old and new sorority
rush chairman with the Pan
hellenic rush chairman at a
meeting Tuesday night.
"The suggestions for a
change in room rushing came
from last fall's rush chair
man," said Sue Backstrom,
rush committee member.
According to Nancy Mc
Gath, Panhellenic president,
the proposed changes will be
presented to Panhell at Mon
day afternoon's meeting.
"From here they will go to
the individual sorority chap
ters for discussion and vote
Monday evening," said Miss
A straw vote taken at Tues
day's meeting showed that
sororities were in favor of do
ing away with room rushing,
she added.
"Room rushing has been
objected to in the past on the
emotional strain it places on

Nancy McGath, president of
Panhellenic Council, felt
that Greek Week as a whole
suffered but to a lesser
degree, this year from a
lack of organization and from
a failure to present Greek
Week schedules earlier.
Organization Trouble
Myers returned that, "the
trouble was that everyone
else thought everyone else
should do something no
one thought of doing some
thing themselves until Greek
Week was upon them."
To develop spirit and an
enthusiasm for Greek Week,
an earlier notice is necessary,
continued Karlene Senf, Pan
hell vice-president.
Toward betterment of the
University in general it was
suggested that Panhellenic
work with IFC in going out
into the state to help explain
the purposes and functions of
the Greek system.
Beggs Explains Teachers9
At the annual convention of the department of audio
visual instruction in Kansas City last week, Walter Beggs,
dean of Teachers College at the University, delivered a
speech entitled "The Teacher of Tomorrow."
In this speech he emphasized that at present teachers
are. well trained, but in a few years they will be out.
"Mankind is faced with a harsh delemma: he must
learn to adjust quickly, intelligently and according to a
rational pattern or face the complete dislocation of his
society," he said.
The needs of the future indicate that teachers must
be produced in ever increasing numbers and the quality
of performance must be sharply upgraded, he pointed out.
Three Problems
Beggs indicated there are three main problems which

Adequate Hearing Sought;
Amendment Is Introduced
A motion that the coming NSA convoca
tion, April 16, featuring NSA president Will
iam Grady, be made an All-University convo
cation has been unanimously passed by the
Student Council. The final decision must come
from the Division of Student Affairs.
In arguing for this motion, Al Plummer
observed that "this issue which affects a large
proportion of the students should be given
adequate hearing on campus" and also, "that
the student should be able to get immediate,
first-hand information on this controversial
Council member Bob Grim-
it questioned the validity of
such a request, "for if 40
of the students don't even
know what NSA stands for
why should the administra
tion make the meeting an all-
university convocation?"
Member Sue Moffit coun
tered, "that if this is the
case, then it is all the more
reason to have a convocation
to stimulate student inter
est." Council Poll

Finally, the underdeveloped peoples of the earth are
demanding at least a minimum of the comforts of civiliza

them. They are in a hurry and are asking more ad- '
vanced nations for help.
Although we can still learn some from history, our
problems are of such a nature today that similar problems
cannot be found in the past. For instance, we have more
food than we know what to do with, we have more leisure
time due to the machines that now do the work of un
skilled and semi-skilled hands, he said. We have never
had these problems before.
Economic Competition
There are other unprecedented problems. Premier
Khrushchev has laid down a plan of economic competition
through which he hopes to surpass the United States.
Another force, space, or the technology of space is
the great dynamo for scientific inquiry.
The teacher who has been educated m a modern
college or university "is not equipped for long to keep
abreast of the fast moving forces of the phenomena we
have been considering." The main reason for this is that
the academic climate in the U.S. "is past rather than
future oriented, and the departments and schools and col
leges of education are no exception."
Beggs urged that teachers concentrate on equipping
themselves to be able to contribute to the learner's moral
and spiritual values, his development as a citizen and his
comfortable relation to the morals and customs of his
