AMBITIOUS FRESHMEN . . . Kate Okamoto, Janle Prentiss, and Kae hchupak enjoy
a few moments of relaxation after bicycling U miles from Omaha. The trip took 6 hours.
Girls Arrive Tired, Sore, Sunburned
After Oinaha-To-Lincoln 'Bikeathon'
Three freshman coeds
proved the exception to last
Saturday's regimen of sun
bathing. Instead, they bicy
cled fifty miles from Omaha
to Lincoln.
Janie Prentiss, Kate Oka
moto and Rae S c h u p a k
packed a lunch and set out
pedalling from Omaha along
highway 6 at 12:30. After six
hours the three finally ar
rived at the W o m e n's Res
idence Hall in Lincoln at 6:30
in the evening.
"It was Rae's idea, and
we did it mainly to get her
bicycle from Omaha to Lin
coln," Miss Prentiss stated.
"It sounded easy at first,
but it was horrible," Miss
Okamoto said.
"It was good exercise, but
I would never do it again,"
explained Miss Schupak.
'Left At Highway'
Miss Prentiss' parents took
the three girls to the begin
ning of the highway outside
Omaha and left them.
"My parents didn't believe
we could do it," explained
Miss Prentiss, "and when I
called them from Lincoln that
night my brother yelled, 'She
made it!'"
Miss Prentiss described the
feat as simple. She noted that
the road was hilly near Oma
ha, but was, on the whole,
much flatter than the Inter
state route.
However, Miss Okamoto
made further comment on the
"three miles of gruelling
hills." "Jane would race
Dr. Pilaris Discusses
Education Of Future
Education for the future
was discussed Tuesday at the
regular meeting of the Assn.
for Childhood Education
Dr. William Pharis, associ
ate professor of elementary
education, spoke on the need
for preparing people for life
in the future. He emphasized
the necessity for the teacher
to motivate the student, in
addition to teaching the sub
ject. "Once the student is moti
vated, then the problem is to
keep up with him rather than
having to prod him along.
Keeping up is a much more
desirable task," he said.
"One way to get people to
do something is to reward
them for doing the right thing
in a corrrect manner," he
added. "Reward gets constant
results. Practice makes per
fect, but when you do it
wrong, it gets worse. One
must do it correctly in or
der to improve."
Another problem Pharis
said that all teachers face is
that students will do only as
much as necessary. If a stu
dent asks why it is necessary
Circle K Plans
To Organize
Chapter At NU
A Circle K International
chapter at the University is
being planned, according to
Wally Rogers, junior in pre
law. Circle K is an organization
for college men sponsored by
Kiwanis International. It now
has 10,000 members on 700
college campuses in the
United States and Canada.
Membership in Circle K is
open to full-time male stu
dents who meet activity eligi
bility requirements.
The purposes of Circle K
are to serve the campus and
community, to provide an op
portunity for leadership train
ing in service, to promote fel
lowship and scholarship and
to develope citizenship and
the spirit of service for Im
provement of all human re
lationships. Rogers asked that past Cir
cle K members, Key Club
members and other interested
students contact him at Cath

Pharis noted "that a butch

Rae had the worst bicycle,
so we traded every so often.
Stopped By Police
Miss Schupak stated, "It
was a hard ride. We had to
stop every hour or so for
five minute breaks."
The three coeds were
st ipped by the police once.
"For speeding," stated Miss
Schupak, who later admitted
that they had been stopped
for riding in the middle of
the road up hills.
"The policeman was very
nice and was concerned about
the cars that were passing us
on the hills," Miss Prentiss

Okamoto, "but I think Rae

to be observed in event of
another ride.
"We should have started
earlier and gotten more sleep
the night before," stated Miss
Okamoto. "Also, we w e r e
foolish not to hve taken any
repair tools. Fortunately, we
didn't have an accident, but
the very next day the tire
on my bicycle had a blow

Varying Views Aired

"No child should be born if
he is not wanted by the mother
and father."
This was one of the many
opinions presented Sunday
evening at a discussion spon
sored by the Hlllcl Founda
tion, an organization for
Jewish students.
The subjects under discus
sion were birth control, mer
cy killings and abortions al
though most of the talk cen
tered on birth control.
Concerning the opinion that
children should not be born
if they are not wanted, one
speaker contended that finan

"If this happiness Is going
to be impaired, the child
should not be born," he' said.
The individual advocated the
use of birth control pills to
cut down the number of un
wanted births.
Another person argued that
birth control pills were de
signed for protection, relating
to health, rather than a pre
ventative method. He said
that the Catholic Church
wanted to affirm the value of
the mind and feared the dam
aging of the dignity of man
through the use of birth
control pills.
"But the dignity of man
can be helped by keeping
down the number of people
dying of starvation," ans
wered another. "Starvation
could be alleviated somewhat
by lowering the number of
births. This could be ac
complished through the use
of birth control pills."
Another student said that
modernization and improve
ment of living conditions were
key solutions to the birth
control problem. He cited a
statistic that said 150 per
cent of the rural Mexican
natives' interest is toward sex.
"In other words it's the
only form of recreation poss
ible," he concluded.

One student felt that "this

the administration." He didn't
think this would happen in the
conceivable future.
Mercy killings were brought
out in the discussion. A stu
dent stated that from the
economic standpoint, mercy
killings were acceptable. But
in speaking in relation to the
dignity of man, they were
"There is a difference be
tween prolonging a life and
ending a life. I also can't see
the rationalization of killing

we can prolong lives by

Let's talk about a career at Boeing...
50-year leader in aerospace technology
Campus Interviews, Tuesday, March 22
The most effective way to evaluate a com
pany in terms of its potential for dynamic
career growth is to examine its past rec
ord, its current status, and its prospects
and planning for the future, together with
the professional climate it offers for the
development of your individual capabilities.
Boeing, which in 1566 completes 50 years
of unmatched aircraft innovation and pro
duction, offers you career opportunities as
diverse as its extensive and varied back
log. Whether your interests lie in the field
cf commercial jet airliners of the future or
in space-flight technology, you can find at
Boeing an opening which combines profes
sional challenge and long-range stability.
The men of Boeing are today pioneering
evolutionary advances in both civilian and
military aircraft, as well as in space pro
grams of such historic importance as
America's first moon landing. Missiles,
space vehicles, gas turbine engines, trans
port helicopters, marine vehicles and basic
research are other areas of Boeing activity.
There's a spot where your talents can
mature and grow at Boeing, in research,
design, test, manufacturing or administra
tion. The company's position as world
leader in jet transportation provides a
measure of the calibre of people with
whom you would work. In addition, Boeing
people work in small groups, where initia
tive and ability get maximum exposure.
Boeing encourages participation in the
company-paid Graduate Study Program at
leading colleges and universities near
company installations.
We're looking forward to meeting engi
neering, mathematics and science seniors
and graduate students during our visit to
your campus. Make an appointment now
at your placement office. Boeing is an
equal opportunity employer.
