The University botany
professor was ready to chew
up the plants in his campus
office in desperation.
Instead of Sunday after
noon quiet, the room had
been penetrated for the past
40 minutes with one tune
played over and over: "Oh
Dear, What Can The Mat

It came from the nearby
Ralph Mueller carillon, long
after the traditional Sunday
half hour concert ended.
Finally the professor
dialed the switchboard op
erator to demand why.
He pleaded, "I can't stand
it a minute longer."
With no ready answer, the
operator called on the mu
sic department personnel,
running down professor My
ron Roberts at home.
Roberts couldn't under
stand it. "I know we didn't
have that song about John
ny being bo long at the fair
and promising the basket of
posies in our mechanical
repertoire," explained Rob

their car and drove down to
the campus.
He tried his key. Nothing

carilloneur Michael Veak,
after completing the Sunday
program, couldn't get out.
His key didn't work.
In desperation, he started
playing the "Gh, Dear" mel

This apparently was the
right pitch as far as the
working botanist was con

hours in the 84 foot high

A petition drive started yesterday to
appeal to the Nebraska Legislature
against a tuition raise.
At an Informal meeting in the Daily
Nebrtskan office, representatives from
several campus groups decided to circu
late a statement with the hope of getting
up to 10,000 signatures.
The statement asks the Legislature
and the people of the state to reject any
proposal which would limit enrollment by
raising tuition. The subject came up last
week when Budget Committee Chairman
Richard Marvel suggested a tnition raise
In lieu of a hike in taxes to finance the
Following Marvel's announcement,
Sen. Terry Carpenter called for a stu

raises. A statment issued after yester
day's meeting said it was the group's

not have any good effects on the Legis
lature. The petitions will be circulated
Any classification which
lists a common cause for un
derdeveloped counties is mis
leading, according to Harvard
economics professor Dr. Ken
neth Galbraith.
"Preoccupation with the
threat of Communism" in under-developed
nations is just
as dangerous, or even more
so, than the threat itself, he
"Such policy keeps us from
understanding the causes of
insecurity and keeps us from
being tolerant in working on
these causes," he declared.
He concentrated on poverty
and its resulting problems.
He advised that the United
States and other aid agencies
begin to realize that problems
in poverty-ridden nations are
not due to Communism, but
primarily to poverty itself.
He emphasized that one's
economic well-being prompts
his actions and sympathies as
much as his country's politi
cal organization.
"To fail to see this is to
fail to understand the world
in which we live," he said.
Outlining the psychological,
biological and economic pres
sures and consequences of
poverty, Galbraith pointed out
the contrasts with such coun
tries. He noted that what is a
boon to developed nations,
Tarty Leadership
Hurt Republicans'
...Says Hatfield
By Wayne Kreuscher
Junior Staff Writer
Oregon Governor Mark Hatfield was made an honorary
member of the University's Young Republicans Saturday at
an informal coffee and news conference in the Union.
Hatfield said that the Republican party had been hurt
in 1965 because of its narrow basis of leadership. The party,
he pointed out, needed a broad base of leadership that ex
cluded no party and that denunciated the traditional prin
ciples of the party.
"I gave full support to Senator Goldwater," he said,
"because I believed in the basic principle of the two party
system and because we had more in common than we had
"I disagreed with Goldwater's stand on the test ban, the
right to work law and civil rights," he added, "but no one
can challenge Goldwater's self-integrity."
He described himself as a classical liberal who favors
making the individual as free as possible. He said he was
also probably a liberal in the sense of siding with legislation
on civil rights, and social legislation.
But he added that it was unfair to label any man and,
that he took position on particular issues and could not be
labeled in generaL
He said the Republican Party needed to help establish
a voting rights bill which would be more effective than the
one President Johnson now has.
President Johnson's bill, he declared, maintains the poll
tax, and "I do not know a state where this is used for other
than discrimination."
"Discrimination," he said, "hurts everyone and does
violence to the cause of freedom."
Hatfield said he felt the United States should get out of
Viet Nam as quickly as possible.
"It's foolish to commit America to a World War in an
area that is not military defensible as Viet Nam," he said.
"If we're going to stop Communism, let's do it in a strategic
area that we can defend," he stressed.
Hatfield explained that the United States had air superi
ority in South Viet Nam, but that we can't win the war un
less we send 300,000 American soldiers to this Indefensible
Hatfield, Oregon's handsome 42-year-old three-time
chief executive, spoke later Saturday evening to the Lan
caster County Republicans.
He was the keynote speaker at the 1964 Republican
National Convention as is thought by many to be a leading
contender for the Republican presidential nomination in
such as the idea of change,

prived areas.
"Poverty is a direct cause
of conservatism," the econo
mist told the audience, and
that conservatism limits op
portunities for improvement.
Therefore the poverty level is
Noting that saving on
which future production de
pends in underdeveloped
nations is almost impossible,
Galbraith suggested that
United States aid go toward
building public utilities and
transportation facilities to
serve the people. But he also
predicted that this type of
aid would not be provided un
til some future date.
Nevertheless, Galbraith de
clared, we must begin to ap
proach matters "in a deep,
liberal, compassionate spirit"
and understand attitudes of
the nations which need help.
He discussed a classification
I based on the obstacles to prog
ress that hinder underde
veloped countries and divided
these countries into three ma-
j o r groupings: sub-Sahara,
Latin American, and South-
He noted there were excep
tions. Galbraith said the sub-Sahara
group's major obstacle

Union under the sponsorship of Interfra
ternity Council (IFC), Student Council
associates, and residence hall govern
ments. Tentative plans call for the appointing
of a small student delegation to address
the Legislature presenting the plan.
Present at the meeting yesterday
were John Lydick, president, JoAnn
Stratemann, vice president, Mike Barton
and Larry Frolik, from Student Council;
Buzz Madson, president and Mike Gotts
chalk, Interfraternity Council; Dave Kit
tams, president, Residence Association for
Men; Frank Partsch, editor, and Lee Mar
shall, managing editor, the Daily Nebras
kan; and John Lonnquist, president of
the Innocents Society.
The petitions will include spaces for
names and home towns for all signers.
Mike Barton was placed in charge
of printing and distributing the petitions.
He said he planned to have them avail
able this afternoon.

He said the Latin American
group was based on a feudal
land system and the result
was that those who con
tributed the least to the econ
omy were also the ones who
demanded the most from it.
The third system, the South
Asian, has a much higher edu
cational background but is
hampered by its large popula
tion. Galbraith, international
ally known economist and for
mer United States ambassa
dor to India, was in Lincoln
to present the 1965 University
of Nebraska Montgomery Lec
tureship on "Foreign Pol
icy and Economic Develop
ment." He lectured Friday on East
Campus, and spoke Saturday
at Love Library auditorium.
