GOP Needs To Find Points
Which Have Appeal: Peterson
By Jim Korshoj
Junior Staff Writer
The need to find points
which appeal to the Ameri
can people was named as the
greatest challenge facing the
Republican Party by former
Nebraska governor Val Pe
terson last night.
Peterson, who has also
served as U.S. Ambassador
to Denmark, made this point
in a talk to the Young Re
publicans. He spoke on "The
Future of the Republican
"The Republican Party is
definitely not liquidated," he
said. "Not all of Goldwater's
25 million votes were re
ceived just as an endorse
ment of him. Many of them
were cast as endorsements of
the Republican party," he
Peterson said that the Re
publicans must, in order to
come back from their defeat
in the recent election, work
for and endorse policies
which will be favored by the
majority of the people. "The
purpose of a political party
is to try to render maximum
amounts of service to the peo
ple of the country," he said.
He also expressed concern
over the party's failure at
times to convey their stands
to the people. "The Republi
can party has not expressed
itself in as affirmative terms
in some years as is desir
able," he said. "We can't be
successful unless we are def
initely for things."

Sheldon Designer

The New York architect who

Philip Johnson, has received

Johnson is the first architect

with Conservatism," Peter
son said. "The true Conser
vative is interested in taking
the best things from the past
and using them for the fu
ture. There is nothing about
Conservatism that means rad
icalism or extremism," he
Peterson also spoke on the
negative charges against
many Republican candidates
in the last election. He said
that he could see nothing neg
ative about fighting to main
tain a sound budget and a
sound dollar.
In commenting on the elec
tion, Peterson said that he
doubted that any Republican
candidate could have beaten
President Johnson. "I think
the only one who would have
had a chance would have
been Nixon," he said. "But
as a new President who
hadn't had time to have
things go too wrong, Johnson
had too many things going
for him "
Peterson said that he had
one criticism of the Repub
lican's campaign. He said
that In a meeting of Repub
lican leaders before the cam
paign began, it was decided
to "write off" the Negro vote
and to try to capture the
"This was sheer, bald ra
cism, and a despicable ap
proach to a campaign," Pe
terson said.
In response to a question
concerning the future plans
of the Republicans in regard
to ultra-conservatives in the
party leadership, Peterson
said that he favored removing
these people from their posi
tions. "We would probably
then lose some votes from
this element of the party,"

he said, "but we can get
along without their type."
When asked what the Re
publicans should do on the lo
cal levels in 1966, Peterson
answered that they should do
their best to encourage the
best candidates they have to
run for office. "We need ca
pable, forward-looking people
to run for office if we are to
win," he said.

By Priscilla Mullins
Senior Staff Writer
An increase in tuition was
supported by the Student
Council yesterday as it
passed a resolution by Mike
Barton stating that the Coun
cil favors the increase as a so
lution to the financial difficul
ties of the Daily Nebraskan.
The resolution came after
Student Opinion Committee
chairman John Cosier an
nounced that 134 of the 147
students to be contacted by a
telephone poll have been con
tacted, and 54 per cent of
these 134 favor a tuition in
Cosier said that 28 per cent
of the 134 favored reducing
the costs by either cutting
back to three papers a week
instead of four, or printing
only half as many papers
each day.
Of tnose contacted thus
far, 18 per cent favored re
maining with the present in
creased advertising situation,
according to Cosier.
Cosier said that 13 students
must still be contacted for the
poll, and the final results
should be ready for the Coun
cil next week.

Lincoln "weather the storm"
of the Lincoln Air Base close
down, Clair Callan told the
Young Democrats last night.
Callan noted an air base
closing in Kansas which af
fected the entire city's econ
omy. Lincoln does not rely
entirely on the air base and
so will not be so drastically
affected, Callan said.
Since winning the election
to the first district, Callan has
met with the Corps of Engi
neers to discuss the Missouri
River basin project, with
mental health officials and
has requested placement on

"The business of agriculture
is the biggest problem in Ne
braska and probably the big
gest in the country. What
we need is a program with
continuity," Callan said.
The great potential of the
rivers and streams in Ne
braska is a reason for Callan's
request for the Interior Com
mittee. The $35 million mid
state Bureau Reclamation
Project at Grand Island is an
example of that potential.
The project is set up to store

Giant Setpent Fossil
Excavated On Farm
The skull and a portion of
the 20 foot neck of a marine
reptile with a body shaped
like a turtle and a dinosaur
shaped head, has been un
earthed at a farm northwest
of Valparaiso.
The 120-million-year-old fos
sil was identified by Dr. C.
Bertrand Schultz, director of
the University State Museum,
as a plesiosaurus, a strictly
marine specimen that lived
during the Cretaceous period,
during which Nebraska was
flooded by a shallow sea.
The giant serpent fossil
measures almost 40 feet m
le..6tii, and it could h a ve
weighed as much as 20 tons
when alive, Schultz said.
At least 20 tons of earth
was removed from the site,
much of it excavated with a
tractor driven by farm owner
Adolph Resak's son, Gene.
The discovery is an unusual
one for Nebraska, because
the fossil was so complete,
Schultz said.
The skull, vertebral column
and one of the four "flippers"
have been uncovered so far,
he said Plesiosaur fossils
have been found in Kansas,
according to the nationally
recognized paleontologist. The
only evidence found in Ne
braska until now was part of

the results of the poll as now
"The poll ran much better
than I had expected," Cosier
said. He said that most of the
people contacted did want the
paper changed in some way,
and the greatest percentage
wanted the increased tuition.
Cosier said that the in
creased t u i t i on alternative
was favored among those con
tacted by a 2-1 margin over
the next nearest alternative.
The Council also elected
three delegates to the Big
Eight Student Government
convention, to be held at the
University of Kansas on Dec.

The Mid-State project and
the Little Blue Project in the
south east part of Nebraska
are all part of the over-all
development of the Missouri
River basin.
Two things must happen to
put the Missouri River pro
jects on a sound basis, Callan
said. Both the payback from
the revenue of electrical pow
er and the interest rate must
be changed, Callan said.
Next week Callan plans to
tour north east Nebraska. He
will make stops at West Point,
and Sioux City and visit the
Omaha Indians at Macy.
On Dec. 8 Callan will meet
with Secretary of Agriculture.
Orville Freeman, who is hold
ing a briefing with all the new
congressmen. All the Demo

Callan thanked the Young
Democrats for their work dur
ing the 1964 campaign. "The
YD's at the University are
largely responsible for our
success," Callan said. "Y o u

several times," he said.
Callan complimented t h e

I can do, I will be glad to do
it," he said.
