"When the Peace Corps volunteer moves from a high ly mobile society into a sleepy, dawning world where progress Is slow and sometimes feared, he roust adapt rapidly if he is to be successful." Pearson, a Peace Corps In formation officer, said it has been this challenge and not the stereotyped dangers of mad hats, savage natives, and wild animals that has cre ated the most problems for volunteers In the field. During the first two years f Peace Corps operation, Vol unteers had few complaints bout living and working con ditions. Indeed, many govern ments went out of their way to see that Corpsmen had ade quate living conditions. But over and over, field rep resentatives heard stories of loneliness, boredom and soli tude. In many areas, volun teers were the only people with an advanced education, or even with the ability to read and write. "'Yet these Volunteers were bright, inquisitive young peo ple accustomed to a fast- Innocents Organizing Homecoming Displays Fraternities and sororities paired in last year's home coming displays will have to select new partners in the rapidly approaching Innocents society Homecoming display contest.

Almost all volunteers man aged to succeed in spite of these problems, however, and in many cases they reported that for the first times in their lives thev were learning to "really live." "I had been exposed to an education," Volunteer Ralph Gilman, working on a Ghana project, said. "But I began to feel I'd had enough of second hand knowledge which had been picked over for my con sumption. Now was the time to learn directly from people struggling in life." Gilman found the slow, un derdeveloped society of Ghana a challenge. But in it he found a need to be fulfilled in him self as well as in the society. "Americans of my genera tion have inherited a healthy and abundant country," he wrote. "But this good fortune implies the responsibility of some constructive use re sponsibilities to the people yearning for an education. "We tend to become so in volved with our fraternities, our jobs, our competition for an education, and our court ship system, that we forget to ask: to what end? After asking myself these questions, I concluded that I hadn't found all the answers in school. "And so I came to Ghana joint projects and $200 for a single house project There is also an entry fee of $15 for joint projects and $25 for sin gle projects to defray the ex penses of organizing, publi cizing, co-ordinating, and judging the displays. All organized living units in good standing with Student Affairs are eligible to com pete. The following dormitory groups will be considered: Selleck Quadrangle, Women's Residence Halls, Pound Hall, Cather Hall, Fedde Hall, Burr West, Burr East, and the Kel logg Center. Trophies will be given to the three winners in each divi sion. If less than ten houses compete with single displays, they will be judged as one division. If there are more than ten single entries but less than four in either the men's or the women's division, the single entries will be divided into two divisions on the basis of size acccording to house rolls as recorded a tthe Divi sion of Student Affairs Office. Intentions to build displays and bonafide joint pairings must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 1 at the Innocent's mailbox at the main desk of the Nebraska Union. Envelopes should be plainly marked: Innocents So ciety, Homecoming. Nearly-New Shop Reopening Today The Faculty Wives' Nearly New Shop at 1610 R win be open again this year.

Volunteers such as Gilman, with the ability to see long range purposes behind short term Peace Corps projects, are needed if the Peace Corps is to become a significant, permanent form for world im provement, Pearson said. "Peace Corps service is not glamorous," he said in a CPS interview. "We've never said it was. It's hard, and tiring, and sometimes discouraging. "And so the question before ns is: now that the newspa pers, in interviewing return ing Volunteers, have made it clear that boredom and apathy go hand-in-hand with excitement and progress in the Corps, will young Ameri cans still be willing to take up the burden?" The answer, Peace Corps officials br'ieve, can be found in the Ar erican student com munity.
