Football Practice Begins
By Harry Argue
Practice begins August 30
for Nebraska's Big Eight
football champions, with some
80 squad members expected
to report.
It will be the first time that
fall practice will start before

than usual.
The first game is against
Texas Christian on Septem

University of Nebraska:
By Priscilla Mullins ,
1 How much is the University expanding? 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

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

back. Six of eleven offensive
starters will be returning.

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

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

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

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
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
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.
