We wonder exactly what Sen. Terry
Carpenter was thinking last week when
he suggested a student demonstration at
the Statehouse. There .seems to be little
reason or justification for a march of this
type l with 5,000 students and Carpenter at
In the first place, everyone KNOWS
what students think of a tuition raise.
Then, rumor has it that a recent march
on the Capitol created more hard feelings
than favor among the senators. Then, we
think the sensitive taxpayers are not yet
ready for this type of protest (although
the students are.) And finally, more ef
fective means of objection seem to be in
Before we march, we should consider
these things: That 55 per cent of the state
would think of "riot" rather than
'march;" That we would be resorting to
an immature way of tackling a problem
when a mature means is at hand. That
no matter how glorious the non-violent
demonstration has become there is never
a guarantee that one here would not be
come a troublesome picnic.
Everyone KNOWS what students think
of a tuition raise. Before we march, we
should find the best way to demonstrate
our point. Is it 5.000 singing students
parading around the Capitol with Terry
Carpenter in the lead, or is it a well
dressed polite group of campus leaders
calmly reading a statement affixed to
10.000 signatures? Before we march, we
should answer this question.

now are thinking of themselves. Now is
the time to look into the deeper and more
serious implications of a tuition raise. Ne
braska is different, true. On one hand,
this state has one of the tightest hands in
the nation grasping onto its pursestrings;
on the other, the restrictions on education
are remarkably free and loose. And this is
not bad, according to Chancellor Clifford
Hardin ithe Nebraska Alumnus, April
1965). One half of all students from the
bottom halves of the graduating classes
make it through two years at the Univer
sity and one third make it through four.
We could hardly term this a waste of
time. Good education does not mean the
mass production of aristocrats, it does not
mean that anyone that can raise $2,500 a
year is entitled to an education, it does not
mean that money should be a prerequi
site. It certainly does not mean that the
students should have to build, staff and
furnish the college themselves with no
help from the state.
Is the state behind us?
We won't know that for several years.
Before we march, we should think
about our reasons, our implications, our
taxpayers, our senators, our parents, our
University. A march takes guts; it's
colorful. Perhaps it's conservative not
We think it is sensible not to march.
The Daily Nebraskan fully supports the
petition to the Legislature ('see page one)
and urges that, before we march, we see
how effective this petition could be.

Higher education in
America today is titider-

changes. An explosion of
knowledge and an in-
crcasea emphasis on re
search especially govern
ment supported weapons re
search, accounts for much
of this change.
Studies indicate that not
only has there been an in
crease in enrollment due to
an increase in the birth rate
but also due to the increase
in percentage of high school
graduates going on f o r
The great Dastions of
learning in the east and the
multiversity and state col
lege system of California
are emphasising quantity as
well as quality. A great ex
periment to say the least.
The small liberal arts as
well as the emerging two
year junior college con
tinues to grow.
With the advent of the
National Education Defense
Acts of the Eisenhower Ad
ministration and the aid ro
education programs of the
Kennedy-Johnson y ears,
America has turned to h e r
vastly inadequate secondary
and higher education sys
tems in a period free from
This national concern, the
consequences of which have
been higher teacher salaries,
outlays for research, and
new classrooms, labora
tories and dormatories, has
not failed to influence the
'Since Berkley' is an ever
increasingly useful cry
among college students.
This of course refers to the
student demonstrations last
fall on the University of
California campus at Berke
ly and its influence in giving
impetus to a national trend.
We may emphasize four
basic generalizations or con
clusions from this influence.
First of all it is an at
tempt for the individual and
a mass of the same to un
derstand themselves in an
era of affluence and new
freedom. Where are they
now? Where have they
been? And most important
ly, where are they going and
For most they are an
swered in a more or less
mechanistic fashion with
little contemplation in
volved. For many, and
significantly this group is
increasing, this process in
volves close interspection
Secondly, the student is
becoming more aware of the
problems facing higher edu
cation and his own institu
tion. Flooded classrooms
and computerized and heavy
handed administration is of
ten the result of the multi
versity. Competition within t h e
university remains keen.
Student organizations and
groups are increasingly fac
ing the test of relevency to
the university and its goals.
Third, the student is con
cerned with his surrounding
community, the nation and
the world. Witness the pop
ularity of the peace corps,
various civil rights organi
zations, party affiliated
groups, disarmament move
ments and other political
Fourth, for many college
students, the above genera
lizations have little or no
application, except for
possibly the first. For most,
college remains a vocation
al vehicle rather than a
learning experience. This
proportion is decreasing.
The University of Nebras
ka has placed an emphasis
on quantity which seems in
keeping with the require
ments of the state. This Uni
versity continues to educate
an individual who is by and
large without the main
stream of American intel
lectualism as seen in t h e
Ivy League schools, the Uni
versities of Wisconsin. Chic

nia and Northwestern, Stan
ford Universities. We may
account for this in several
ways not the least of which
is traditional Nebraskan,
Eventually this awareness
will reach Nebraska.

fighting with your navel.
You can't quit study now,
you've got a million things
to do yet, including one job
that will require all the in

your humble mind has ever
been exposed to. You have
to write mom and dad ex
plaining those four "pro
gress reports" that have un
doubtedly graced the home
mail by now.
Panic seizes your brain.
What will you do? Suddenly
the radio that has been blar

(and of the utmost value to
chemistry problems) finally
comes across with a good
idea Rejoice, the answer
to the world's problems is
here. Popeye has his spin
ach, the Spartans had their
"Black Elixir" and you can
have your pizza.
Just the thought of strands
of hot cheese tangled
around your tonsils makes
your stomach burn with de
sire. You feel better al
ready. Immediately you
reach for the phone all cov
ered with gunk from the last
time you had pizza. Auto
matically you dial the me

A fun way to' pass the

common one and "Gee, I al

The automobile industry, unlik
many industries, does not de
pend for its survival on a steady
stream of new products.
What it does depend upon is a
steady stream of new ideas. Many
of these ideas come from basic re
search; and basic automotive re
search embraces a wide field of
subjects including solid state and
nuclear physics, high polymer and
physical chemistry, chemical and
physical metallurgy, mathematics,
electronics, psychology, astro
physics and aerodynamics.
From this inten
sive research effort
comes a steady

component in the modern automo
bile has come into being or has
reached its present state of develop
ment through laboratory research.
Brake linings, twice as good as they
were five years ago, are a result pf
the marriage of basic research in
two different areas new polymers
and friction characteristics. Insu
lation, improved engine blocks, pis
tons, door handles, steering wheels,
wipers and other accessories are
stronccr, safer, lighter and longer
lasting because of applied research.
Programs conducted in the field
of hydraulics and dynamics have
resulicd in such practical develop
ments as full-time power steering,
automatic transmissions, and auto
matic controls. Only through re
search could these activities take
place since there was no background
knowledge in those fields and it wa
mandatory to start from scratch.
Developments in Other Fields
Research aimed at increasing
knowledge has a way of being use
ful in unexpected places, and auto
motive research is no exception.
Studies in the pumping of precise
amounts of fuel for an engine have
led to a medical food pump which
has saved countless ulcer victims.
Methods developed to study tho
riding qualities of vehicles are being
used to investigate the behavior of
nuclear reactors at different power
levels. The use of radioactive iso
topes to learn more about the effect
of oil additives in reducing friction
and wear of moving parts is being
extended to investigate the funda
mental behavior of structural ad
hesive. Development of our gas turbine
power plant resulted in new mate
rials which are finding applications
m fields where corrosion resistance
and strength at high temperature
must be coupled with low cost and
ease of fabrication.
One of the greatest challenges
facing the research engineer and
scientist is the control and supply
of energy for the benefit of all the
world. There exists in many area
of the world a desporate need for
industrialization, and it is up to the
researcher to take the lead in meet
ing that need.
In the utomotive research field
alone, there are countless problems,
to be solved In bringing forth new,
inexpensive power plants for agri
cultural and Industrial use by
emerging countries. ,
There will be big challenges ii
the research field in the years aheadj
New power sources for passenger
cars -turbines, solar energy, fuel
celk - need exploring and devel
oping. But the creation and manufacture
of all kinds of useful products will
present the biggest challenge.
If supply of goods and necessities
is to keep pace with growing world
population and its rising demands,
research in our universities and !a
our industries will have to come
with new answers and new means.
