Rock star Pam Hirschbach (center) lets go with the number she composed. Interpretations Vary In State Water Study Nebraskans have more than 500 times as much avail able water as they currently use. "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 strata. 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 mile. 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 inexhaustible. 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 replaceable. "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."

'St At By SUE SMITHBERGER The first encore in the history of Coed Follies was de manded by the audience Friday night at the completion of the winning Chi Omega skit, "Starring Stereo." The skit was written and directed by Pam Hirsch bach. There are some plans for recording the finale, "Rock 'If Roll to Stereo" although no definite plans have yet been made, according to Miss Hirschbach.

Winner in the Traveler's Act division was the Kappa WSbu Mental Health Grant Money VJHI Finance 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 acids. Dr. Carver is an associate professor at the University College of Medicine in Oma ha. 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 vals.

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 Atkins. 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. Buel said that he is '"not going to resign. Student opinion seems to be behind us, judging from the letters received." The editorial was ran aft er three Oregon fraternities had been charged with haz ing by the Inter-Fraternity Tribunal The chairman of the IFC, Ken Wilson, ended the meeting by resigning, saying "The guilty are try ing, the guilty." Prior to the senate action, the complaint had been tak en to the Board of Publica tions, but no action was taken. Buel said that his inform ation had come from second-band sources, who lat er refused to back the pap er. He said the paper had backed down considerably and has retracted some statements. 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 on Un-American Activities 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 tion. 'It demands a recognition 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 Peace antagonized the edit ors, they said, because HUAC represents "most America's inability to rec ognize and admit her imperfections. Alpha Theta act, "Ma, He's Makin' Eyes At Me". It em ployed usage of two girls to look like one, the hands and feet belonging to two different people. Second place in the skits went to Gamma Phi Beta with "Pirates Parody." They depicted the discovery of America as "Columbus" is forced to walk the plank by a female crew. Pi Beta Piu won third with their "Faith, Hope and Chestity." The skit was a take-off on the TV western "Gunsmoke" with Chester saving the day by recovering a stolen treasure chest.
