'NU Doing Best It Can'
United States colleges
and universities should re
examine the philosophy,
objectives and operation of
their foreign student pro
grams, according to a re
port by the Committee on
the Foreign Student in
American Colleges.
Dr. Harry L. Weaver,
F-rcixi Student Adviser of
the University, said "There
are many things I do not
agree with in the report,
but Nebraska does as much
as possible to make our
foreign student's stay prof
itable and pleasant."
Weaver cited the People
to People programs, the In
ternational News Letter,
host family invitations to
do everything from attend
ing concerts to going on
picnics and the Nebras

efforts to familiarize for
eign ftiudeuU with Ameri
can culture.
"The University is doing
the best it can to provide
additional services nota
bly to correct housing dif
ficulties but the funds are
not available for extended
activity," Weaver contin
ued. The foreign student ad
viser observed that close
government cooperation ex
ists with the University,
notably in such programs
as the American Interna
tional Development (AID)
contracts for foreign uni
versities and to some ex
tent, the United States De

"If I had money to work
with, my first concern
would be in helping the
acute financial problems
most foreign students
face," Weaver said.
Weaver said he would es
tablish grants-in-aid to
worthy students in order to
alleviate such problems.
"The University must as
sume its proper place in
international education," he
"We just cannot expand
in these directions, not be

Weaver explained that of
the 251 foreign students
presently at the University,
106 rely entirely on per
sonal funds. "In most oth
er cases, the assistance is
so small, that financial
strain still exists," he said.
"With the exception of
the students sponsored by
the United States govern

sored by their home gov

foreign student needs much
more assistance than he is
now receiving," Weaver

COACH BUSH . . . Husker basketball Coach Jerry Bush yesterday announced his res
ignation which will become effective July 1.
A bill which would allow
the Board of Regents to
use the facilities of the
state's junior colleges for
it's own programs passed
the legislature's Committee
on Education Tuesday.
The bill, which was intro
duced by Senator Terry
Carpenter, provides that if
both the Board of Regents
and the governing body of
the junior colleges are in
agreement, the University
may use the facilities and
the equipment of the junior
college for the furtherance
of its own educational pro
gram. At the present time, the
credits earned by students
at junior colleges may be
cerned wRh greater coop
eration among universities
and governments, founda
tions, international organ
izations and other agencies
which sponsor foreign stu
dents. "This we do every day,"
Weaver explained. "Natur
ally this is important."
Weaver does not agree
with the second suggestion
that admission policies
must be revised to put em
phasis on admitting those
students whose basic objec
tives can be best served.
"This is fine, as far as it
goes," Weaver said. "But
the foreign student must be
educable." The Foreign Stu
dent advisor feels that if
he is not educable, only
harm can result when the
student returns to his na
tive country uneducated.
"Naturally he will want
to blame someone most of
ten this will be the Univer
sity," Weaver said.
He also feels that the
third recommendation, pri
Education Committee
Junior College Bill
transferred to the Univer
sity, according to Senator
Ross Rasmussen, chairman
of the Committee on Educa
tion. However, this bill
would provide better con
tinuity between the col
leges, he said.
In a report prepared by
the Committee on Educa
tion, the reasons for ad
vancement of the bill were
given as follows: the junior
colleges provide a greater
opportunity for the youth in
the vicinity of the junior
college to obtain an educa
tion, and if they desire
further education, they may
continue at the University.
Also, the cost of main
taining a junior college by
or competence in the Eng
lish language, should not
be a decisive criterion for
admission, and that suffi
cient training in English
does not adequately reflect
the problems involved. ,
"In order for the foreign
student's education to be a
success, we must know that
he is educable," Weaver
said. "If he cannot master
the English language once
he gets over here, natural
ly he cannot be educated in
American schools and the
.same harm occurs when
the student returns unedu
cated," said Weaver.
The fourth and fifth are
as, which deal in orienta
tion and closer cooperation
between advising and
counseling, are of course
advantageous, Weaver said.
"However nice these rec
ommendations appear in
the report, the necessary
finances still do not exist
for the University to ex
pand into these areas,"
Weaver concluded.

its local community is ex

should become part of the
overall college system and
receive state support.
"The people in these

college and once for the
The opposition to the bill,
which passed with a vote of
5-2, was that the junior col

No Comment
On Successor
Says Tippy
An era in Nebraska basket
ball history suddenly came
to end yesterday when head
cage Coach Jerry Bush an
nounced his resignation, ef
fective July 1.
Bush revealed his decision
after a meeting with NU Ath
letic Director Tippy Dye late
yesterday afternoon. The
move came as a surprise at
this time even though the
Huskers are currently buried
in the cellar of the Big Eight
basketball race with an 0-9
conference record and an
overall season record of 5-15.
Bush said, "I've had this
in my mind for a long time.
My thinking on this began a
month and a half ago and I
talked to (Chancellor) Hardin
at that time."
"I feel that this is as good
as time as any for every
body concerned," the 48
year-old coach said. "I want
to leave a good taste in ev
erybody's mouth."
Dye, who is now faced
with his second major coach
seeking job in a little more
than a year, made this state
ment: "We (Bush and Dye)
got together today for the
first time in quite a while.
He decided he wanted to re-.
sign. It was his own thinking."
"We are sorry to lose Jerry,
who has made a fine contribu
tion to our community and
has made many friends
throughout the state," Dye
How does Bush, the man
who came to Nebraska sport
ing a victorious 129-58 record
and national prominence at
Toledo, feel about leaving the
University after posting nine
straight losing seasons?
Is he discouraged? "No, I
feel I'm the same guy that
coached back at Toledo that
last year," he replied.
"In nine years of coaching
here I've lost one guy out of
the state of Nebraska that
hurt us Bob Boozer, an
Omahan who performed for
Kansas State.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed
my time here at Nebraska,
granted that there have been
some heartaches and tears,"
he said.
Further evidence that Bush
is still living up to his title
as the "Coliseum Bear" in
optimism is the report he gave
of a squad meet held before
yesterday's practice.
"I told them I had resigned
and that we had five games
left. We're out to win these
last five," Bush said. Nebras
ka has games remaining
against Kansas, Oklahoma
State, Oklahoma, Colorado
and Missouri.
Bush stressed that he had
sincerely enjoyed working for
Dr. Hardin "He's a tre
mendous person."
Bush's resignation imme
diately kindled the fires for a
successor. First mentioned
was Ralph Miller of Wichita,
where Dye was Athletic Di
rector before coming to Ne
braska last year.
Dye said, "We will start
looking immediately for a re
placement. We will get the
best coach we possibly can."
"We are hopeful to get a
man who's more successful
than the Nebraska coaches of
the past. Nebraska hasn't
won many basketball games,"
Dye stated.
Bush posted a won-loss rec
ord of 81 triumphs and 127 de
feats at Nebraska, including
last Monday's setback at Okla
homa. The Huskers have lost
nine straight this year and
