Students beware, we have John Eirch at the University
that is, Dr. John Birch, assistant professor of mathemat
ics. Birch, who received his Ph.D. at the University of
California in Berkeley in 1960, said that he wasnt ribbed
about his name then because the John Eirch Society wasnt
really famous at that time. "There is, however, a very
active chapter of the Eirch Society in southern California
now," Eirch said.
''When the John Birch Society became famous I was
here and my friends used to send me clippings from the
newspapers whenever tbey referred to the Society, so I
now know more than I want to know about it," Birch said.
Eirch commented that he has voted Democratic in
every major election and considers himself a liberal Demo
crat. "My politics are not at all the same as the John
Eirch Society, he noted.
With the increase in the notoriety of the Birch Society
the jokes about Dr. Birch's name naturally increased,
and, "at one time my wife and I jokingly thought of run
ning an advertisement in the paper asking people to send
money to John Eirch at our address, but some of our law
school friends discouraged the idea."
"My religian emphasizes the difference between my
name and the policies of the Society even more," said
Birch." "Unitarianism Is liberal in its belief and many of
the members used to rib me about being John Birch in
the Unitarian Church."
"But," commented Eirch, 4,the name has never been
dant at the "By Bye Birdie"
rehearsals according to John
Zeilinger, president of Kos
met Klub.
Rehearsals under the di
rection of Mrs. Richard
Hove from Lincoln have kept
72 University students busy
for over two weeks now.
With the March 21. show

rehearsals are going "real
well," says Zeilinger.

Hastings' Paper
Gives Scholarship
Nebraska high school sen
iors interested in journalism
will have the chance u com
pete for $3,S75 in scholarships
at the University next year.
A $300 award from the
Hastings Tribune has been
added to the School of Jour
nalism scholarship list w-hich
is financed by 11 Nebraska
newspapers and the Nebras
ka Farmer.
Dr. William E. Hall, direct
or of the school, said this is
the largest number and
amount of newspaper-sponsored
scholarships ever avail
able. "These scholarships have
played a msjor role in en
abling us to attract outstand
ing Nebraska high school
journalistic talent, and in
making it possible for us to
compete favorably against
the best schools in the na
tion," Dr. Hall said.
In addition the University's
journalists ranked first in the
William Randolph Hearst
Foundation national news
writing competition bringing
awards totaling over $15,000
to the School of Journalism

really embarrasing; poople always were jesting when they
made comments about it."
Eirch said he has taken the anitative at parties and
gatherings by commenting on his name first.
He finds that at parties people have no trouble remem
bering his name.
Dr. Birch's wife, Mrs. Eleanor Birch, instructor of
economics, said that when her husband made speeches
he used to start with the comment that he understands that
the original bearer of the name was shot in China for open
ing his mouth too much, and he hoped he wouldn't meet
the same fate at the gathering.
He has made it a practice to discourage students in
class from joking about the name, '"but now I teach gradu
ate students, and it.isnt much of a problem."
Birch has never seriously considered changing his
name '"because it isn't that much of a big deal, and be
sides, I had it before the Society did."
He has never made a concerted effort to study the life
of the other John Birch, but he do know the policies of
the Society, and doesnt agree with them.
His wife said that there were a number of run-ins with
the name when she went chopping, because people, seeing
the name on a credit card, didnt know whether to joke
about it or not because she might be in sympathy with the
beliefs of the Society. Mrs. Eirch overcame this by making
some comment herself. She said that she fell people were
relieved to find she wasn't a membr.
Dr. Eirch is going to teach at the University of Iowa
next year and when asked if he expected to encounter the
same jibbing there he said "Yes, but not as much as I
would have a few years ago."
Chuck Peek, president of
the University Young Repub
licans (YR's), said Sunday
that members of the group
who attended the tri-state
meeting of college Young Re
publicans in Sioux Gty Sat
urday did so as individual
members rather than as rep
resentatives of the University
YR group.
Although the delegates ov

'The Alliance for Progress
in spite of some well
founded criticisms is still
the best program in inter-
j American cooperation," Dr.
Roberto Esquenazi-Mayo de
clared Saturday.
Esquenanazi, associate pro
fessor of romance languages
at the University, spoke at a
student convocation at the
Iowa Wesleyan College in ML
Pleasant, Iowa.
"The Alliance for Progress
is not a unilateral program;
it is not a U.S. aid program.
It is part of our inter-American
system in which every
nation has definte responsibil
ities," Esquenazi said.
"The worst enemy of the
inter-American system is the
threat of communist infiltra
tion in Latin America just
as it is in any part of the
world. In an effort to cope
with this problem, it is im
perative that economic and
social reform are established
and that we base our deal
ings and relationships on
mutual trust

statements of U.S. policy
were made during the Eisen
hower and Kennedy adminis
trations," be continued. "Ei
senhower established the
'good partner policy' and
Kennedy announced the Al
liance for Progress. President
Johnson recently said that
we know of no more import-;
ant problem anywhere, at
any time than the problems
of our neighbors.
Esquenazi pointed out that
economic development should
proceed in Latin America
within the framework of dem
jcratic and constitutional gov-
said that the University club
has not endorsed Goldwater

we are not going to support

Five University coeds
will study in Europe this
summer under the Nebras

Foundation funds.
The students are Linda
Miles, a sophomore Ger
man major; Karen Wood
ward, a junior French

nior German major; Mary
Schmitt, a senior German
major; and Kathy Robert
son, a junior French major.
The students will spend
the summer visiting France
and Germany to exchange
cultural views and to fur
ther develop their lan
guage skills.
All five coeds rank high
scholasticaUy and have an !
interest in making a career
of college and university

members of the three-year
masters program, an ac

in the arts, sciences and
Departments now partici

Some 70 delegates from U
colleges and universities in
South Dakota, Iowa and Ne

to reaffirm YR principles and
to conduct a mock vote en
dorsing a presidential candi

Lewis III, representative of
the Young Americans for
Freedom, spoke to the group.
Stastny emphasized that the
15-20 University students did
not represent the University
YRs "although the results of
the voting probably represent
the feeling of most of the
members of the organization.''
Marr echoed Stastny's
words, adding that all of the
