Career Conferences
Offered To Students
Career conferences will be
held in cities throughout the
nation for out-of-state stu
dents returning home for the
Christmas holidays, accord
ing to Frank Hallgren, place
ment director.
These conferences give the
student a chance to look at
local industry, investigate
career opportunities, and dis
cuss employment possibilities.
Interviews will also be held
in conjunction with most of
the conferences.
"Christmas offers a con
venient time and place to
interview college students,
many of whom attend small
or distant colleges from which
IFC Holds
E equals M squared C.
Not an algebraic problem,
but the theme of the national
Interfraternity Council (IFC)
convention h e 1 d in Washing
ton, D.C. and attended by
Gary Larsen and Ed Tippetts
of the University IFC.
In the equation-theme, E
stands for excellence, M for
manpower and motivation
and C for continuity, Larsen
Tippets said the convention,
consisting of about 1,200 un
dergraduates, national frater
nity officers, deans of men
and IFC faculty officers,
heard speeches on the theme
and then broke into discussion
groups of about a dozen peo
ple, moderated by a dean
and a national fraternity of
ficer. He said that the delegates
to the convention also partic
ipated in "old pro sessions''
in which various aspects of
fraternity relations were dis
cussed. "Overall, that part of the
conference where we gained
the most knowledge was in
discussing our various prob
lems," Larsen said.
In fraternity rush, Larsen
said the conference stressed
three trends: making rush as
non-formal as possible, short
er periods of rush, and a
movement away from defer
red rush.
Tippetts described the con
vention as "an extremely
valuable experience" in that
"we were able to meet with
national fraternity officers
and discuss problems in a
straightforward manner."
Larsen pointed out that
"Nebraska has a very good
IFC, but we should realize
that the IFC will have to
keep pace with the changing
times or it will fall behind."

Hallgren said the number
of career conferences has
"really increased immensely.
This is recognition of the fact
that many students who at

still interested in getting jobs
close to home."
Most of the career confer
ences are sponsored by the
cities themselves, some being
coordinated with various local
companies and industries,

Religious Liberals Discuss
Current Moral Problems
By Beth Robbins
Junior Staff Writer
Liberal views on religion,
politics and the world in gen
eral are discussed every two
weeks when the Student Relig
ious Liberals (SRL) meet in
the Nebraska Union.
The only requirement for
participation in this group is
concern for the world at hand.
Names like Camu and Fromm
crop up, Slong with news
events and personal opinions.
SRL, a University organiza
tion affiliated with the Unitar
ian Church, emphasizes "the
present life in the present
world'' according to its vice
president, John Schrekinger.
'Discussion Group'
Schrekinger called the or
ganization a "discussion
'We are concerned
with current moral as well as
religious problems," he said.
"One of the characteristics of
the Unitarian religion is to be
interested in current, not just
abstract theological thought."
More people are attending
SRL meetings this year than
last, Schrekinger said. This is
probably because meetings
are held on campus instead of
in private homes as in the
past he said. SRL became a
University organization three
years ago, but was more like
"a group of friends getting
together," he said.
Attendance varies between
"twenty and five or whoever
is interestd." P r e s i d n t
Susan Caldwell said. The
average is a b o u t ten to fif
teen. One of the aims of the
group is to evolve a perman
ent membership, Shrekinger
said. Although most of those
in attendance are Unitarian,
everyone is welcome, they
'Broad Scope'
An example of the broad
scope of SRL discussions
came at last Sunday night's
meeting. The proposed topic
for the evening was "When is
it morally right for a nation
to use political force?"
From this point the conver
sation ranged from interna
tional warfare to the United
Nations, to birth control, to
the Liberal's view of human
nature, 20th century Western
philosophy and its effect on
modern youth, to the sunno-
sition that man is growing
more machine-like in his
mechanized world.
"Our discussions follow one
general rule," Miss Caldwell
said. "They always end about

Columbia University Economist Says
Economic Outlook Very Encouraging
Bv Julie Morris
Junior Staff Writer
Columbia University
economist Lowell Harriss
painted an encouraging pic
ture of the economic future
of the country in the next
decade when he spoke on
campus yesterday.
"I think the economic out
look is very good, things
seem to be most promis
ing indeed." he said. "Some
of the greatest changes and
problems in government fi
nance in the next ten years
are going to be in the state
and local governments."
Cautioning his audience
not to expect too much,
however, Harriss said
"there will be surprises and
I think that is one of the
most important elements to
be kept in mind."

is not relative to its length.
Political Liberals
Most of those attending
SRL meetings are politically
liberal. Miss Caldwell said.
Although the SRL is not con
nected with other student
movements as an organiza
tion, its members are often
active in groups such as
SNCC, SDS. the American
Humanist Association and
Young Democrats, she said.
The Student Religious Lib
erals as well as the Contin
ental SRL with which it is
connected emphasizes the
temporal, its officers said.
The real guidelines for life
now are found by discussion
in things of current interest
now, Schrekinger said. This
follows a belief in the brother
hood of man and the sacred
ness of man, he said.
Harriss. author of sev
eral books on economics
and professor of economics
at Columbia since 1938, out
lined several problems that
the government will have to
handle in planning its mon
etary and fiscal policy in
the next decade.
He said the government
needs to adapt itself for a
change in the economic sit
uation, to coordinate mone
tary and fiscal policy, and
to face the problem of in
flation. Harriss said the
government must also rec
ognize its actual role in the
society and the fact that it
has more policy goals than
implements for achieve
ment of the goals.

it that all faculty members
have a chance to read the
students' recommendation and
Hardin's personal request.
Table Two Motions
Faculty Senate tabled two
motions Tuesday concerning
the students request. It
tabled both the students' mo
tion, made by Dr. William
Pharis, ASUN faculty advis
er, which requested that the
Faculty Senate recommend
faculty members not to pen
alize a student who attends
the Orange Bowl game and
is unable to make it back for
classes Jan. 3 and a motion
made by another faculty
The other motion requested
that Faculty Senate recognize
no valid reason for class plans
to be changed for the sake of
some students who might
want to return to school late.
Hardin, who presided over
the meeting, said after t h e
motions were tabled that "as
executive officer of the Uni
versity I personally request
that all faculty members try
to cooperate with the s m a 1 1
number of students who might
be under pressure" in getting
home for class Jan. 3.
He noted that only 600 stu
dents, besides those going on
chartered trips which will be
back by Jan. 3, might have
trouble getting back for class
es after the New Years Day
football game.
Make Arrangements
The chancellor said that
since only a small group of
students are going to the
game it is reasonable that ab
sence arrangements be made
on an informal basis. Hardin
suggested that if the number
of students going to the game
had been larger, some type
of definite recommendation or
motion from the Faculty Sen
ate might have been neces
sary. Hardin emphasized that all
arrangements which might be
than about inflation," Har
riss noted. He said the prob
lem of inflation and price
level change "calls for a
good deal more analysis
and hard thinking than
we've given it." Inflation,
he said, is a difficult issue
to discuss because of the
ambiguousness of the term.
Harriss characterized the
problem of federalism or
government expansion as
one of the biggest problems
of today's society.
"It seems that trends to-
w a r d centralization are I
likely to be encouraged," he
said. Harriss said the gov
ernment now has enough of
an economic stockpile to be
able to increase its spend
ing without increasing
"It will be easy for gov
ernment to propose increas
ing expenditure programs
which do not require addi
tional income; we can have
increasing government serv
ice and a declining tax
rate," he said.
Harriss has t a u g h t at
such varied institutions as
the University of Stras
bourg and Berkeley. He has
has worked on the staff of
or served as consultant to
the U.S. Treasury, the city
and state of New York, the
United Nations and other in
stitutions and commissions.
He said a prime need in
this country is an informed
public opinion about eco
nomic affairs. "The major
job of economists of the
future must be public edu
cation." Harriss appeared at the
University as the featured
speaker of an economics
and business roundtable.
made for absences Jan. 3 will
be up to the individual stu
dent and proessor. He point
ed out that in the past facul
ty members have usually been
quite reasonable and coopera
tive in approving absences of
this type.
Discussion among the facul
ty members supported both of
the proposed motions. One
faculty member noted h o w
"unrealistic" it is to expect
students to drive back to
school in a day's time after
the game. Another member
said that if the school con
tinues to change the calendar
because of athletic events "it
would soon become known as
the best athletic orientated
University in the west."
Albin T. Anderson, profess
or of history, suggested that
the two motions be tabled.
Not Appropriate
Kent Neumeister, ASUN
president, said after the meet
ing it was his impression that
the students' motion was
tabled because the Faculty
Senate did not think "that it
was appropriate for that body
to suggest to an individual
faculty member how to ad
minister his class."
He noted in respect to
the students who are going to
the Orange Bowl game, he
thought it was important that
Hardin had pointed out that
students who are attending
the game can work out indi
vidual arrangements in ad
vance with their instructors.
"Because of Hardin's per
sonal request. I think that stu
dents can arrange their ab
sences with their instructors
within the flexibility that ex
ists in the present University
framework," Neumeister said.
Hardin said before the
meeting began that Dr. Rich
ard Gilbert's statement in
Monday's Daily Nebraskan
welcoming students to observe
the Faculty Senate meetings
was incorrect. Gilbert is sec
retary of the Faculty Senate.
He pointed out that t h e
meetings are open to the
press, but that they are tra
ditionally meant to be meet
ings only for the faculty.
Rev. Stuart
Panhel Tea
The Rev. Kenneth Stuart,
speaking in the absence of
Dr. Robert Palmer of West
minster Church, asked those
present at the Monday Pan
hellenic tea if they were
"really ready for Christmas."
Speaking to sorority house
mothers, dorm presidents,
Towne Club officers, Panhel
lenic and Junior Panhellenic
members, he said, "Christ
mas is a busy, busy time for
all people. There is always
much to be done, so one is
really never ready."
He went on to say that, if
asked the same question, the
people in Jesus' time would
answer both ways. The shep
herds were surprised at the
appearance of the angels, Her
od did not expect the com
ing of a King, and the inn
keeper was not aware of the
significance of the people to
whom he had given lodging.
However, he pointed out
that the world as a whole
was ready. It was a period
of peace, the world was un
der Roman rule, there was
a network of highways, and
the common Greek language
was spoken.
"All this helped bind the
people together to provide a
sense of readiness," said the
Rev. Stuart.
"So what of us in 1965?"
Rev. Stuart asked. "Are we
really ready? We live in a
wonderful time, a wonderful
day, but are we any more
ready than those people of
long ago?"
"We need to be practical,
busy, living a life which is
ours to live, but never losing
the dimensions of a quiet
faith, trusting in God, and ex
pecting the unexpected," he
