"All the first faculty mem
bers were clergymen because
there was generally no way to
pursue study but with relig

The first chancellor, Alan
Benton, was a minister of the
Christian Church. Benton in
sisted on a close moral con
trol and worked to establish
the first dormitory so the
faculty could watch the stu
dents and the students could
study scripture with media
tion and fellowship.
This concern with keeping
close moral control reflected
the 1870's society belief that
University life was a "hotbed
of infidelity," as expressed in
1922 by an Ashland minister.
By the mid 1870's, the re
ligious groups established
themselves, according to Man
ly. One group, the Broad
Gagers were composed pri
marily of Unitarians. The oth
er group, the Narrow Gagers
had among its followers
Baptists, Methodists, and
Manley said, "The student
life of University students in
the 1870's reflected the socie
ty in which the students were
raised." The students didn't
rebel to daily chapel. In
stead in 1879 a petition was
brought forward by the stu
dents to the chancellor which
reprimanded the faculty
members for skipping chap
el. Both the YWCA and the
YMCA were important organ
izations, Manley said. Both
groups had rooms in Univer
sity Hall. The girls held noon
prayer meetings and the men
had Sunday afternoon Bible
study. It is significant, ac
cording to Manley, that in
1885 twelve University stu
dents pledged their lives to
missionary work.
In the 1880's another east
ern tradition was brought and
transplanted on the Nebraska
plains. The athletic program
was started with the argu-l

Harvard and Yale. "Soon
complaints and gasps were
heard that a certain Professor
Woodberry was inviting stu
dents to his hotel room for
schnaps," Manley said.
Changes had begun. In
1893 daily chapel was put on
a voluntary basis. "But the
turn of the century the Uni
versity was described as the
domicile of the godless," Man
ley said.
A great deal of the criti
cism toward the University
was due to public reaction
against the fraternities, ac
cording to Manley. Yet in the
early 1900's seven of the elev
en fraternities held weekly
Christian study groups.
In 1906 there were 700 or
800 students. "Sixty percent of
the faculty in 1906 were
church members and about
two-thirds of the freshmen
were church members," Man-
ley said.
From 1906-08 a student gos
pel team composed of six men
traveled from camp meeting
to meeting to encourage the
youth of the state to remain
true to their beliefs, Manley
In 1910 there was a great
impact on the University with
the coming of highly trained
specialists from Harvard and
Yale who had no empathy
with Nebraska.
Students were confronted
with brilliant, young profes
sors who disbelieved in God
who delighted in showing
that Genesis was all wrong.
"Though these young profes
sors did not give anything to
replace the belief in -God, they
caused doubts. From 1920 on
there was a decided decline
in religion," Manley said.
Thus the English professor in
the 1920's was able to teach
atheism in his classroom with
out anything said.
big labor, the only alterna

action or action by an organ

Farmers Organization (NFO).
Either method involves effec
tive production controls or
market controls.
Peterson does believe that
farmer's organizations and co
operatives have a future. With
declining political power of
farmers, agricultural pro
grams of the future may be
tailored more for consumers
than farmers. This could be a
decisive factor promoting the
growth of national coopera
tives. "Even though national or
ganization does have possibil
ities," Peterson said, "the
number and diversity of farms
may pose many obstacles to
effective organization."
