The display was popular not

the completely water-powered

down "Wildcat Falls" and
was used to turn the mill.
The second prize for the

Husker never failed in his

rode with the curl, while the

may solicit funds on campus
only through AUF.

Secretary Zuckert Speaks
On Military Preparedness
By Wallis Lundcen
Junior Staff Writer
Secretary of Air Force Eu
gene Zuckert told an audi
ence speckled with Air
Force blue that "If the Com
munists find they can't bury
the free world by non-mili
tary means, they have only
one alternative military con
quest.'' Gov. Frank Morrison, Clar
ence Swanson, member of the
Board of Regents, Milton
Beckwith, chairman of the
Faculty Senate convocations
committee and wives of Lin
coln Air Force Base officers
were also present at the all
university convocation Fri
day. An estimated 2000 people
Zuckert praised the Univer
sity's pioneer work in aero
space education, led by Dr.
Frank Sorenson.
The character of Commu
nism may be described in
three words total, dynamic,
and protractive, Zuckert said.
The final goal of the Com
munists is still "We will bury
you." There has been no
change in this as an objec
tive, he emphasized.
"They will do away with
the free world by non-military
means if possible, but they
will give us a military funeral
if we become weak."
Quoting the phrase over the
State Capitol entrance, "The
salvation of the state is watch
fulness of its citizens," Zuck
ert said that military pre
paredness is a policy the gov
ernment must continue with
the wholehearted support of
the American people.
"We have the best educated
and equipped military estab
lishment In history, but it
couldn't have been achieved
without universities who
helped prepare military
leaders for their wide range
of responsibilities."
'But our most important '
game. "They gave us a dollar
for refreshments," Vicki
said, "I really didn't expect

We believe the answer is
yes to the question tan a
free society serve the needs
of people better than a total
itarian society?' We must
prove democracy can still
work in the free world."
Noting that no Communist
country has matched the
growth of Japan since World
War II, Zuckert said he was
not belittling the scientific and
technical advancements of
the U.S.S.R.; but their efforts
were directed toward support
of the military, at the cost of
denying human wants both
physical and spiritual.
"We have to be better than
the Communists in every way,
so that new nations will turn
to us. Competition in the non-
military field is a challenge
everyone should accept."
Zuckert urged.
How the U.S. handles do
mestic problems effects their
image abroad. Because the
U.S. leads by consent, not by
force, it is often more diffi
cult. The people of the U.S.
must be prepared to over
come temporary reverses and
to understand that political
differences may arise with
other governments.
The military men of today
need a higher level of intel
ligence to cope with prob
lems today, Zuckert said.
He listed four revolutions
affecting the military. One is
the constant threat to our se
curity, and large peace time

Third is the diplomatic rev
olution which requires that
military men deal with the
civilian population in coun
tries around the world.
Fourth is the desire to re
duce the level of expenses
without endangering the safe
ty of the free world. The mili
tary must understand their
claim on national resources
is just one of many. Selection
requires judgement by civil
ian and military specialists,
but "civilian authority must
always maintain control over
military power," the Air
Force secretary emphasized.
Effects of these revolutions
have been an increased size,
a research and development
program through which sci
entific and technical compe
tence have been developed to
a high degree and the devel
opment of a complex defense
policy and strategy which re
quires the talents of Air Force
"Whiz Kids."
The military man now re
alizes he can't function in iso
lation, but is a member of a
complex group of related gov
ernment agencies, universi
ties and industrial powers of
the nation.
At a news conference in the
Student Union following the
convocation, Zuckert declined
to make any prediction of
events following the removal
of Nikita Khrushchev as So
viet Premier. "It is too early
to speculate," he said.
"It would be like trying to
predict the outcome of a game
when a relief pitcher is sent
in with three men on base."
The secretary, who attended
football game Saturday, said
"I'm glad the Air Force
Academy doesn't have to play
Nebraska this year. "So are
