The unclaimed books are

Once a year, about the first

This is necessary to make
room for the coming term.
At this time the unclaimed

What they get out of this experiment
in good Is intangible, according to a con
census of the counselors. They are proud
of the real relationship that they have
with their counselee and feel what they
are doing is constructive. The counselors,
by observing children who come from
excellent homes, are learning to be good
The, counselors are aware that much
J6f their, interest stems ;from Clifton. Clif
: ton, who praises the counselors so highly,
is highly praised by them. William Janike, ,
a graduate assistant from Lincoln who as
an undergraduate was a counselor and now
, is assisting with Child's Project, describes
Clifton , as a motivating force, for jthose'
abound him. Janike, himself, is an exam
ple of the Influence of Clifton and Child's f
; Project. As an undergraduate he received
' his , degree in business administration.
,' "Dr.' Clifton goes about 14 hours a
day; he' always on the go," Janike said.
Two years ago when the campus news
paper named Clifton the Outstanding- Ne
; praskan from ths faculty, it described him
as . "inspiring, dedicated, efficient; and re- !
spected.'" ' ' , ! '" ' ' : ' '
Clifton, a soUdly set individual with
powerful, and direct gestures, readily re
lates to others. He is at the apex of the
Child's. Project pyramid; at the base of
this pyramid are the ten youngsters in the
program. , -! ( , . ; . ;
, The children were originally selected
with the criteria that the chil ' ;ot, along
in school; seemed to have p.-omise of
continuing above average work and 'the
parents were interested in the child's prog
ress and in his relationships with others.
One of the ways this experiment in
good is unique is that while it is not un
common to take a group of underdevel
oped children and work with them, in this
case a group of above average youngsters,
have been selected to develop, Clifton said.
On first seeing the group of children,
the imniediate reaction is that they are
like any other group their age, and it is
only after a while that subtle differences
become clear. They are polite but aggres
sive as was shown in an experiment in
which $2 was given to the children as a
group and they were told that only one of
them could have the money and they must
decide which one.
The children came up with a method
of selection that would be based on chance,
but the counselors disqualified any such
type of selectibn.
The children then decided that it
should not go to them, but to some or
ganization. A debate then followed, wheth
er to give to charity or to research. Char
ity won with the money going to the
The children, in debating what to do
with the money, according to Clifton, learn
to trust others in their group. They learn
that they can say what they actually be
lieve without worry of retaliation or being
taken advantage of by the others In their
In another experiment the children
were taken to a large Lincoln department
store and asked to observe the people and
to write down what they saw. The chil
dren, like adults in similar situations who
write down 70 per cent of that which is
negative about people and only 30 per cent
which is positive, emphasized the nega
tive, Clifton said.
Clifton said that so much of one's
training is in seeing the bad in people
that only through an awareness of this
fact can it be changed. He pointed out
that there are more words to describe
the negative aspects of people than there
are words to describe the positive aspects.
It is common in our society to tell
someone the mistakes he is making, but
it is not often that recognition is given
for doing well. This experiment helps the
children to show appreciation.
Clifton and the counselors feel that
Child's Project is helping the children by
giving them experiences that the average
child does not have.
One of these experiences was an over
night trip to Omaha which emphasized
the meeting and getting to know people
that were encounter along the way.
There was also a tour of Omaha's Joslyn
Art Museum which was centered around
i the special interest of the children. The
children helped in the planning and ar
ranging of the trip.
! : Another experience for the children
was a visit to the Malone Community Cen
ter where they were guest of a group of
: children their own age. Later the children
from Child's Project invited the Malone
, groun children to a picnic.
In other experiences the children have
i met Rudy Johnson, University football
player, and foreign students.
Child's Project does not continue as a
group project through the summer, but
' many of the counselors and their coun
selees do get together.
Clifton and the counselors also be
lieve their aproach to training children
has been successful. One of the testing
. methods to see how a child is coming
along is for the counselor to give his coun
selee a sack of candy before the group
meeting. The counselor then notes whether
the child shares it with the other children
or takes a piece and puts it in his pocket.
"Most of them will now pass the can
dy around," Clifton said. The counselor
' does not tell the child to share if he has
not, for this would ruin any future use of
the experiment; but instead the counselor
centers his efforts on an indirect approach.
Much of Clifton's belief in the success
of Child's Project is a result of the first
group of youngsters in this experiment in
good. These youngsters who graduated
from high school this year show that
Child Project does help the child to de
velop into outstanding individuals that can
relate to others, he believes.
Mary Durrie, who graduated from
Lincoln Southeast, in recalling her experi
ences in the first group of Child's Project
said, "It taught me to be more relaxed
with people. We learned about good."
When they were younger she said, the
group learned through experience, then
when they were junior high age they
learned the actual philosophy of the Foun
dation, which is studying good, recogniz
mg good, receiving good and investing
She still has many friends who were
m the Child's Project group. Last school
year Miss Durrie was recreation chair
man for the Lincoln-Lancaster Youth Coun
cil, on the Teen Time Council and in In
ternational Club and Pep Club at school.
Child's Project is one of six projects
under the auspices of the Nebraska Un
man Resources Research Foundation. The
other are Orthopedic Project, Teen-age
Project, Family Project, Special Func
tions and Potentiality Development. These
are also experiments in good.
Dr. William E. Hall, University pro
fessor of education psychology and meas
urement, is the over-all program director
for the Foundation. Like Clifton, Hall
personifies the work he is doing.
The purpose of the Foundation is to
discover, study and expand the good that
already exists in the communities. Good
is interpreted to mean any purposes,
plans or efforts on the part of any indivi
dual to improve men, women or children.
The basic assumption of the projects is
that people are the most important thing
in the world.
A study of wholesale sales
Ih Nebraska from the time of
the 1958 to the 1963 business
census reveals that Colum
bus, Lincoln and Fremont ex
perienced the greatest per
centage bf increases among
all Nebraska cities;
The report, published by
the; Bureau of .Business Re
search at the University and
written by its director, Dr.
E. S. Wallace, appears in the
July issue of Business in Ne
braska.' According to the report,
wholesale sales volume in Co
lumbus increased a whopping
271 per cent, from approxi
mately $7.5 million to neatly
$28 million ,in the five-year
period. The city jumped from
15th to 7th place among Ne
braska cities ; in total whole
sale sales volume. ' '
(" Wallace said the wholesale
volume rise in Columbus was
quite remarkable and appears
to be the result of a burst of
activity by manufacturers'
branch offices, p e t r o 1 e -um

brokers and assemblers of
The next largest, percentage
increases in wholesale sales
during the period were en
