J-School Adds New Sequence
The School of Journalism will add
TV-Radio education as a third sequence
in their program next fall, announced
Walter Militzer, dean of the College of
Arts and Sciences.
He explained that the transfer from
the speech and dramatic arts department
will permit the Journalism School to
join the sequence of courses with news
editorial, advertising and broadcasting.
This will give the students a broader out
look and greater versatility in the area
of communications, he said.
Adequate classroom and laboratory
space for the expanded program will be
provided when the School of Journalism
moves to new quarters in Nebraska Hall
Boyd Rooney, KUON-TV producer
director, will serve as a liaison man for

He said that the spring enrollment
is the largest since that of post World War

have not had before. Dr. Hall promised
that the school would not slacken pace

Opposition to the University came from criticism in
local newspapers. Tbe Beatrice Express said "The Omaha
Herald advised the burning of the State University and
Capitol building at Lincoln."
In 1272, the Express reported that "The Herald at
tacks with the usual combination of ferocity and fustian,
saying it costs the taxpayers of the state $40,000 per an
num to educate 100 boys and girls at Lincoln in a high
school which is dignified by tbe name of a University. How
do they like that luxury?"
The enrollment did not increase the first few years,
but averaged consistently about 100.
In its near-century of existence the University has
grown to eight colleges and from 100 students to 10,000
graduate and undergraduate students.
