Interpretations Vary
In State Water Study
Nebraskans have more
than 500 times as much avail
able water as they currently
"Nebraska has about 187
times as much groundwater
in storage as is replaced by
annual average rainfall," said
Eugene C. Reed, director of
the University's Conservation
and Survey Division.
At the 2nd annnal confer
ence of the Nebraska Well
Drillers Association at the
Nebraska Center, Reed said,
"The state has a fine future
because we nse only a third
of our annnal rain, but we
need to know more about it
so we can manage it for the
greatest good."
Reed said, "There is some
danger that much time,
energy and money may be
spent in looking for simple
solutions to complex problems
at the expense of basic data
collection and hydrologic re
search." He cited research projects
including: water quality in
reuse, water table recharge,
flood impounding, and affect
of water withdraw on t h e
structure of water bearing
Reed said that about 3,000
test wells have been recorded
in the state by the Univer
sity. He believes that almost
10 times as many wells may
have been drilled but not recorded.
University scientists are
drilling test wells about three
miles apart, north and south,
and 10 miles apart, east and
west. Some authorities esti
mate one test well per square
Reed said the University
groundwater survey has cov
ered about half the state.
Opinions on groundwater
range from dire predictions
of serious water shortages in
20 years to complacent opin
ions that water supplies are
Neither opinion is factual.
"It is about as difficult to
forecast future water require
ments as it is to forecast the
stock market," Reed said.
No water supply is inex
haustible even though it is
"Nebraska's tremendous
groundwater supply is like
money in the bank. The
amount of water replaced
over a period of time is our
average income. If we can
learn to manage our ground
water bank account we w i 1 1
leave a significant estate to
future generations."

Four-Year Research
The National Institute on
Mental Health is financing a
four-year investigation by Dr.
Michael J. Carver on the ef
fects of phenylketonuria on
the distribution of free amino
Dr. Carver is an associate
professor at the University
College of Medicine in Oma
Phenylketonuria is an in
born error of metabolism
which less than five years
ago struck many infants with
complete mental retardation.
Its Dowers have waned
but researchers have found
out a great deal about ar
resting the condition before it
permanently damages the
brain through experiments
controlling the diets of labora
tory animals.
Onlv in early infancy can
the condition be corrected. It
is the result of "mistakes in
the ways humans handle food
stuffs," according to Carver. :
He has just received a $10,-j
324 grant covering the second
year of the research project.
"Free amino acids," he ex
plained, "are those acids
which are not incorporated in
to the protein of the brain."
The chemical counterpart of
phenylketonuria is produced
in the study by injecting and
feeding certain compounds to
rats. These compounds then
are studied at specific inter

Special disciplinary action
by school officials and stu
dent organizations has re
cently restricted the editors
of two college publications
and the ex-managing editor
of the Colorado Daily.
According to news re
leases from the Collegiate
Press Service the action in
two of the cases was taken
because of an arbitrary edi
torial and in one case be
cause of a letter to a Uni
versity Regent.
Colorado Daily
The ex-managing editoT of
the Colorado Daily, Terry
Marshall, received a
"Dean's warning" from a
special board of appeal com
posed of three deans for
writing an outspoken letter
to University Regent Dale
Dean of Student Affairs,
Arthur Kiendl, placed Mar
shall on probation after he
wrote a public letter to Re
gent Atkins.
Atkins, just elected, had
been instrumental in pres
suring the Colorado admin
istration to take action
against the Colorado Daily
because the paper had earl
ier allowed a student-written
article to be printed
which referred to Sen. Bar
ry Goldwater (R-Ariz) in
derogatory terms.
After a month-long furor
on the campus, University
president Quigg Newton
fired the editor of the Daily,
then Gary Althen.
The letter sent to. Atkins
by Marshall, which the
board said was "intemper
ate and insulting," told the
regent that Marshall in
tended to "continue to sub
vert your dircy American
ism." The special board held,
that "students at the Uni
versity do not have the priv
ilege, as a matter of right,
to write scurrilious and in
sulting letters to other stu
dents, teachers or to mem
bers of the Board of Re
gents. It is . . . conduct un
becoming a student."
Oregon Emerald
The student senate of the
University of Oregon voted
13-12 to ask for the resig
nation of the editor of the
Oregon Emerald, Ron BueL
The decision to ask for the
resignation of the editor
was reported to be the re
sult of an editorial implying
the practice of hazing in
Oregon fraternities.

Queens College Phoenix
The entire editorial board
of the Qneens College Phoe
nix has been placed on dis
ciplinary probation by the
administration as a result
of an allegedly obscene edi
torial. The college president,
Harold Stokes, declared that
the editorial "admittedly
violated the regulations of
Queens College and the
Board of Higher Education
as well as the .canons of
good taste."
The editorial was prompt
ed by the House Committee

recent investigation of Wom
en's Strike for Peace.
It said, "The business
about defending the politi
cal religion of America
comes right out of the most
decadent and genteel strain
of American cultural tradi

that the mother of the.
land was without sin, that
the father caressed her
with confident procreativ
ity, that they conceived a
perfect child begot to with
stand the assaults of Its
changing environment."
The HUAC Investigations
of Women's Strike for

America as "Columbus" is forced to walk the plank by
a female crew.
Pi Beta Piu won third with their "Faith, Hope and
