Gary Pokorny, one of the
counselors, said "The most
important benefit is that
these scared freshmen get to
meet the teachers someplace
other than the class room.
They soon find out that teach

Million Dollars
Received In Aid
University of Nebraska stu
dents are receiving over one
million dollars in scholarship
funds this year, according to
Edward Lundak, new director
of scholarship and financial
The financial aid is divided
among thousands of students.
This aid takes the form of
several types of scholarships
and loans, for which many
students are eligible to apply.
According to Lundak, stu
dents are eligible to receive
certain types of loans with as
low as a 4.5 average. A 5.0
average is required for a Fed
eral Defense Loan and a 6.0
average makes a student eli
gible for any of the upper
class financial aids.
"Before a student can get
upperclass financial aid he
must take the upperclass Re
gent's exam," Lundak empha
sized. "This exam is given to
all students wishing to take
it and is given early in the
second semester. All students
wishing to apply for financial
aid or for r e n e w a 1 ot aid
they now receive must take
this exam."
Recipients of the 300 Upper-
class Regents Scholarships
are determined by a compo
site of this test score, their
class standing in their college
and their overall grade
For other awards, these are
also the factors which deter
mine their recipients, unless
the trust agreement specifies
that financial need of the stu
dent also be taken into con
sideration. Financial need is
the main determinate of those
who receive loans.
Mr. Lundak encouraged all
students to visit him and to
take advantage of the schol
arship program. "If students
have financial problems, this
is the place to come, and they
don't necessarily have to be
referred here by anyone," he
A retired Air Force lieuten
ant colonel, Lundak replaced
Eldon Teton as director of
scholarships and financial aids
this year. He had entered the
University as a graduate stu
dent in 1960 after serving 22
years as a B-17 pilot and per
sonnel officer in the Strategic
Air Command.

there are still sophomores

Powell said that fraternity
men in the advanced courses
are talking to this year's soph
omores in their houses trying
to convince them that the
program has merits and
should be continued. He said
he hopes this will boost the
present enrollment.

But Problems
Thanks to pre-registration
the traditional freshmen Eng
lish enrollment problem has
grown no larger this year.
There has always been a
problem getting students to
the right classes at the right
time, and with the increased
enrollment the problem has
become even larger, Ned
Hedges, assistant director of
freshmen English, said yes'
Twenty-five member class
es are still possible because
of the increase in the English
department staff.
The problem of finding
rooms for the greater num
ber of classes has been solved
by holding freshmen English
in Lyman, Morrill, Bessey,
Burnett and Stout Halls. On
Ag Campus classes are held
in Ag Hall, Ag Engineering
building and even in the Dairy
Industry building.
"Though we expect the us

ten minutes and have not seen

mented. Fellowship Group

enrollment was becoming so
large that it would be im
possible to handle all the t in
coming freshmen male s t u
dents in the program.
The Regents, besides being
influenced by the expense of
handling such great numbers
of students, also considered
the law approved by Congress
which provided for a camp
to be held between the sopho
more and junior years to take
the place of the elementary
training received in the first
two years of training.
The Air Force ROTC en
rollment has increased this
year to 665 freshmen, as com
pared with 595 freshmen last
year. Lt. Col. Shimmonkeviz,
acting professor of Air
Science, attributed this in
crease to the fact that the Air
Force lifted its ceiling of 600
students this year, not know
ing how the new ruling would
affect them. He said the Air
Force has always felt that the
voluntary program was more
adaptable to its purposes, and
that the ruling has been ac
cepted happily by the Air
Capt. A. C. Mullen, com
manding officer of the Navy
ROTC said that the Navy has
not been affected much by the
ruling, since the Navy offers
a four year program, and
students who join the pro
gram now and those who
joined during the compulsory
ruling for the most part
joined because they were hon
estly interested in serving the
four years and going on into
the Navy as a career.
