How much will it expand within the next few years? What deter- I mines the extent of expansion? s In a series of articles this summer, the Summer Ne- 1 braskan has attempted to answer the first of these ques- f tions by presenting a picture of present-day expansion. The business of planning for the University is a big business a big business that keeps many people busy 1 year after year trying to keep up with the trends of en- p rollment and education. For, according to Carl Donaldson, business manager for the University, planning for expansion is a matter of "guessing what the University is going to need." It is partly a matter of adjusting to trends year after year refining plans to meet changes and partly a I matter of "trying not to get in a corner." I The University is expanding at a great rate, ac- cording to Donaldson, who noted that "We're adding the 1 equivalent of a Nebraska Wesley an to the student popula- tion every year." Expansion takes the form not only of new buildings. 1 but also appears in the remodeling of the interiors of older buildings. 1 One new aspect to the campus which will be ap- 1 pearing in the next few years, according to Donaldson, is more intense outside lighting for the campus. Within 1 the next few years he estimated that $75,000 would be L spent for this. The reason, he said, is that many classes I will be held in early morning and late evening, in an attempt to accommodate the increased enrollment. 1 Horizontal Versus Vertical Presently, Donaldson said, the University planners f are studying how best to increase the size of the Ne- 1 braska Union. This is a matter of vertical versus hori- zontal expansion, he said. I He noted that by the time the University population I reaches 25,000 the expansion will be both horizontal and I vertical. "I don't think that we'll have many more low 1 buildings even class buildings," he said. Proximity As A Factor P Another of the many factors the University planners I must consider is proximity. "We can't expect a student to have a class in a building Jialf-way to East Campus I and then the next one on the main part of the campus 1 and then make it back to the first building." f He noted that the solution to such a problem, would 1 be to use one building for more classes for the students I living in dormitories near it. For instance, the new f- Abel Hall and the girls' dormitory being constructed next 0 to it are right across the street from Nebraska Hall. 1 Within the next two years another dormitory will be un- der construction north of Nebraska Hall. 1 In such a case, Nebraska Hall makes an ideal place 1 for these students to have many of their classes. At I present, only 36 per cent of the building is being utilized, 1 according to Donaldson. He noted that each floor of fniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Lincoln on Thanksgiving Day, November 25. That skirmish will be televised nationally. The Cornhuskers will be out to win their third straight Big Eight title and keep Coach Bob Devaney in his current status as the nation's winningest coach. Devaney, who has been teaching at numerous football clinics across the nation this sum mer, will have 25 lettermen returning from last year's Cotton Bowl squad to build from. According to Bryant. De vaney feels the squad should be better, personnel -wise, both on offense and defense. Nine of eleven starters from last season's defensive team, which ranked second nation ally in total defense, will be back. Six of eleven offensive starters will be returning. The team appears strong Learning Important To Students en, examine the words which were associated. Do they sound like the original word, or are they merely associated with it? Herein lies the difference. The visual, or eye-minded person will come up with words which are associated with the word. For instance, if tye word was'sun', the eye minded person would have written a pattern word, such as 'moon' : or 'bright.' The acoustical, or ear-minded per son would have written a ton al equivalent, such as 'gun' or 'run.' Such a realization of meth od of learning can be of im portance to the student, ac cording to Furst. "The acutely ear-minded student cannot do better than iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!'!iitiiiiim iiiiniimmniiiiiiiiiiiiiiii i Mnmiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiim xpansion August 30 est at the ends with such standouts as Freeman White, Tony Jeter, Langston Cole man,' Mike Grace, and Bill Haug leading the way. The middle of the line will be held down by AH-American candi date Walt Barnes. A big problem for the team though, is the offensive interior line with only Dennis Carlson com ing back. The team should be very strong at quarterback with the Big Eight's leading pass er, Bob Churchich, and 1963 star Fred Duda, now fully recovered from a broken leg in last year's Iowa State game. Wayne Weber can al so be expected to see action as the signal caller. The rest of the backfield also looks good with Cotton Bowl star Harry Wilson and Frank Solich both back to zip through opposing lines. choose lecture courses, since what he hears makes the deepest impression on his memory. Furthermore, he should not take too many notes but confine himself to cue words. "The opposite, of course, holds true for the eye-minded. By reading, he can master his lessons in a fraction of the time that his attendance at lectures would consume." No student is 100 per cent ear-minded or eye-minded, however, according to Furst. But an awareness than such distinctions do exist can help a student take advantage of his best method of learning. Furst also noted economy of study can be effected by observing one's sleeping hab Lincoln, Nebraska Is Constant Nebraska Hall is equivalent to the entire Administration Building. Thus, the building has great possibilities for many classes, he said. Donaldson said that in planning, it is felt that walks between classes should take no more than ten minutes. If the time is extended, this would take valuable time from the class day, he said. Skating Rink Being Planned j Of special interest to students in a sculpture garden- I skating rink to be located between Sheldon Art Gallery I and the new music building. This is still in the planning stages according to Donaldson. The idea for the garden was included in the Sheldon bequest to the University. The garden would have a water fountain, sculpture items and a shallow reflecting pool. The pool would bo ideal 1 for freezing in the fall and winter for student skating, Donaldson said. 1 Will East and City Campus Meet? The question of whether or not city and East Cam- rf pus will ever meet is answerable in two observations, g Since 1945 the University has expanded twice as much as i it did in its first 40 years. Also, the University is stuck in terms of expanding to the north, south and west. On the north, the Interstate blocks University progress, on 1 the south, the City of Lincoln blocks University progress and on the west the railroad stands in the way. I The only direction left is east, and straight out to East Cammis. "It would be natural that the two would grow together," according to Donaldson. The only ques- tion is when. The University has many plans for expansion. Li i Donaldson's office there are a number of maps showing I the land owned by the University, leased by the Uni- versity and that privately owned. Plans for future de- velopment are shown on the maps in the form of num- f bers. And there are many numbers. How About Money? 1 The only question remaining is where the money 1 will come from for all this expansion. "It depends on the ability of the taxpayer," Donaldson said. The dormi- tories are self -sustaining; the athletic facilities pay for themselves through ticket sales; and the Student Union is paid for through student fees. I The remaining buildings must be taken care of through tax money appropriated through the Nebraska Legislature. What Is Education Worth? He noted that students today will be taxpayers some day and when they are, they should stop and ask them selves: "What would I have been if I hadn't had it?" "The American public usually comes through," Donaldson added. "You folks determine what will happen." Parents Participate In Univ. Orientation Parent participation in the University of Nebraska's parent-student summer orienta tion program is on the rise ac cording to Dr. Curtis Siemers, coordinator of student activi ties. The special day-and-a-half sessions give incoming fresh men and their parents the opportunity to visit with Uni versity faculty, students and administrators. The program is in its second year of oper ation. Siemers said a comparison with last summer shows that there will be both an increase in the total number of partici pants this year students and parentsand in the ratio of parents to students attend ing. He explained that 2,000 par ticipants have already attend ed and said he expects a to tal of 4,000 by the end of the summer. This is in contrast with 2,400 students and par ents who attended last year. its. Those who retire early and are soon sound asleep, can achieve far more econ omy of study early in the morning than their counter part who can stay alert late in the morning. Bv extensive research into memory retention, a general rule may be stated that a sample requiring 68 repeti tions to memorize in one day can be achieved with only 38 repetitions if spread over a a three day period. Thus, the 'last day cramming' can be a strategic waste of time, Furst said. He also pointed out that In reviewing problems before sleep, the restricted but ef fective consciousness can often solve them by the time the person awakens. ffe On. yfJ ft II D Pf7 7D iiiiiiiiiiiiiriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Finals 'Torment9 Is Here By Pat neidenreich Darkening the future of many summer school stu dents is the scheduled tor mentfinals. Response from several stu dents may emphasize their woe. Mrs. Irene Burritt of Osceo la said. "I've been keeping up pretty well except for the last few weeks. Cram? You mean there's a different way?" Jim McCall, graduate stu dent, said he was going to cram for one course; his oth er class has no final. Many students have been attempting to keep up. Sandra Petersen said she should not be cramming be cause she had outlined her reading assignments. She plans to review these outlines, class notes and lecture notes. Other students are being more leisurely about finals. Paula West said she'd study whenever she found time be cause of a report and paper due. Then there is the carefree student: "I'm not going to be studying for finals," said Jane Rhoades. "I never study for finals." Love Library Changes Hours Hours for Love Library will be changed for the post ses sion in August. The library will be open from 8 a.m. until noon on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. It will be closed the remaining hours of each week. The west door will be open to visitors and for research, however. August Interest The August session of sum mer school will offer Teachers College courses ranging from Electronics and Electricity to Audio-Visual Methods to fun damentals of education ad ministration. Six courses will be offered in this session, which is sched uled to run from August 9 to August 27. The post session is expected to attract 250 teach ers, according to Dr. Frank Sorenson, Director of Sum mer Sessions. A workshop will be offered in the use of science resources and in the teaching of elemen tary education. The class will be composed primarily of teachers from the Lincoln area who will visit museums, the planetarium, and other community science attractions In addition to studying labor atory equipment. An educational administra tion course will be offered which will include a study of the administration of the Lin coln Public Schools and prob ably two other school sys tems. The people enrolled in this course will go to the towns involved and conduct a practical examination of the system, not just hear lectures on it. Sorenson speculated on the future of the August session of Friday To Mark Largest Summer Commencement The largest summer com mencement in the history of the University will be held at 7:30 p.m. this Friday at Pershing Auditorium. Of approximately 575 grad uates to be honored Friday night, about 45 will receive doctorates and about 220 will receive master's degrees, ac cording to Shirley Thomsen, assistant registrar.

For soma time the University discour aged attendance at these ses sions, and for a time the only course offered was one in pub lic health which was required for a teaching certificate. The number of persons in terested in this session is in creasing every year. Next summer the August session will be lengthened to four weeks with some courses of fered in the College of Arts and Sciences as well as Teachers College, Sorenson said. Sorenson said that the four week session has a possible attraction for students who do not want to give up a full eight weeks of their summer vacation, but who do need to take some extra work. With the growth of this four week session, the University is expected to expand its serv ices to accommodate the in creased number of students, according to Sorenson.' Pres ently the Student Union and Library operate on a rather limited schedule during Au gust, he said. With the growth of this session a dormitory will probably be kept open in August. The expansion of this pro gram will have the facilities of the University in use al most 12 months of every year. the University School of Mus ic, will be the soloist at the ceremonies, which w il 1 be presided over by Chancellor Clifford Hardin. Dr. A. C. Breckenridge, vice chancellor and Dean of Faculties, will act as Master of Ceremonies. The Rev. Arth- jur Slaikeu, pastor of First I Baptist Church, will deliver the invocation and benedic tion. 1 1 scene this week.
