Queen Carol Thought
Crowning A Mistake
"I thought they'd made a
mistake," exclaimed ' Home
coming Queen Carol Klein
about five hours after she had
been crowned at the pep ral-
When her family arrived
Friday Carol was surprised.
Her father was in the midst
of harvesting, and she had not
expected him to leave h i s
work. Her family knew, but
they couldn't tell her that she
was queen.
Chancellor Hardin placed
the crown on her head. Carol
was" stunned. "I just stood
there not knowing what to
do," she said. Finally a Corn
Cob appeared, asked if he
could help her, and escorted
her off the stage.
As she walked around to
see the displays, people stared
and smiled at her. "I've been
smiling so much that my
cheeks hurt," said Carol.
Carol commented that as
soon as her mother heard the
news she bought a new dress
for herself. "I'm still wearing
the same old clothes," she
As for her two younger sis
ters, well, for all practical
purposes, they were unim
pressed. "Aren't you proud of
your sister?" askecfan excit
ed freshman. "Oh, I guess
so," shrugged the youngest
Miss Klein.
Her boy friend, who works
as an engineer for DuPont
Company in Delaware, sent
her a dozen roses the day of
the elections. A note was en
closed, "Every queen should
have roses." He learned the
good news Friday at 9 p.m.
when he called her.
During the halftime cere
monies of the Nebraska-Colorado
game, a man snatched
one of the Queen's carnations
as she walked from the field
to the convertible. "I want a
souvenir," said the middle
aged gentleman. -
Walking into the dance was

a "tremendous sensation" for
Carol. "It seemed as though
there was nothing in the room
but a blinding spot light,"
commented Queen Klein.
Carol's date for the dance
was John Demel. Escorting
her in the presentation was
Larry Donovan.
Before Homecoming Carol
had turned her ankle and had
received orders from her doc
tor to wear heels as little as
possible. She wore heels to the
dance anyway.
Carol's room on third floor
Heppner, where she is a coun
selor, is filled with seven doz
en flowers and two corsages.
On her dresser is the sparkl
ing crown on a green satin
pillow. Whenever girls come
in to congratulate her, she
lets them try it on.
Outside her room is a string
of toilet paper put up by third
floor Heppner girls which
reads, "We've got the coach,
we've got the team, we've got
Carol Homecoming Queen!
Sunday was spent studying
for an hour exam, being inter
viewed for Nebraska Sweet
heart, and washing clothes.
"I usually don't do my wash
ing on Sundays," commented
Carol, "but I didn't have
time Saturday."

Forty Top Educators Demand
Better Negro Opportunities
Washington (CPS) More
than 40 top educators from
the nation's leading universi
ties are taking part in a high
level drive aimed at up-grading
higher education oppor
tunities for Negro students,
faculties, and institutions.
The representatives at
tended a conference of the
American Council on Educa
tion (ACE) in the nation's
Capital last week to define
objectives for a sweeping pro
gram. The two day session was
held by the ACE's committee
on equality of education op
portunity, headed by Elvis J.
Stahr Jr., now president of
Indiana University and Presi
dent Kennedy's first Secre
tary of the Army.
Also attending the confer
ence were representatives of
six major foundations, includ
ing the Ford, Rockefeller, and
Carnegie foundations. Repre
senting the Kennedy adminis
tration were U.S. Education
Commissioner Francis Keppel
and White House Science Ad
visor Jerome Wiesner.
The committee discussed
long-range problems facing
negroes in the civil rights
fight primarily economic
problems which cannot be
overcome without more edu
Several proposals were dis
cussed, but not adopted during
the conference. Included
were: I
Giving Negroes special or ;
preferential treatment to get
them into college. It was noted
that one university has set
aside 25 scholarships for Ne
groes. Colleges may be asked

to help Negroes find housing
and work at improving stu
dent and community accept
ance of Negroes.
Improving opportunities
for graduate study for faculty
members of predominantly
Negro colleges. This would
mean giving them travel
funds, living expenses, intern
ships or fellowships to attend
"reputable graduate schools"
mainly outside the South.
Creating faculty exchange
programs between integrated
universities in the North and
Negro institutions.
Sending teams of top
scholars from integrated uni
versities to assess the quality
and "raise the educational
sights" of Negro colleges.
Injecting higher quality
into mathematics and science
instruction in Negro colleges
through summer programs,
faculty exchanges and intro
ductions of new teaching ma
terials. One proposal involved send
ing a team of counselors and
testers into secondary schools,
mainly in the South, to ident
ify and aid talented Negro stu
dents. "We must also help the mo
tivation of Negro students to
attend college," one commit
tee member said. "Many tal
ented students quit college be
cause of a lack of opportun
ity available even after grad
uation." The ACE committee will
act as a chief coordinator of
the suggested programs
which will be financed by
"very interested" foundations.
The committee noted that
two thirds to three fourths of
all Negro college students are
