AUF Faculty Drive To Aid
World University Service
Money from the All Univer
sity Fund (AUF) Faculty
Drivt this year will again be
given to the World University
Service (WUS), according to
Bob Mllligan, AUF president.
The World University Serv
ice is an international organ
ization based on the committ
ment of dedicated individuals
to the Idea of an internation
al student community. It
serves all parts of the world,
with the exception of the
Communist bloc countries.
"Rich students and wealthy
faculty members are hard to
find, but the students In North
America and Europe are far
better oft than those in coun
tries where per capital In
come Is $100 a year or less,"
stated a pamphlet deicrcibing
the service.
"The exlstance of this need
was the basis on which WUS
was formed, and Is still the
baai for the present pro
gram." The first organization
formed to aid students was
the European Student Relief.
It was begun in 1919 to aid
students in the aftermath of
World War I.

'Gloomy9 Season Now
Time Of Spiritual Joy
By Julie Morris
Senior Staff Writer
Lent, that ominous word
which used to spell 40 days of
rigid fasting, today is viewed
as a time of spiritual renewal
and "joyful fasting, accord
ing to campus ministers.
Lent is the Christian feast
of the preparation time before
Easter. Today it is generally
accepted as a six-week peri
od beginning with the move
able feast of Ash Wednesday.
In the early days of Chris
tianity before the 14th cen.
tury Reformation, Lent was
viewed as a holy time to mor
tify the flesh in preparation
for a sacred Easter Sunday.
Some early Christians f o I
lowed a custom of eating noth
ing at all for 40 hours between
Good Friday afternoon and
Easter Sunday morning. Dur
ing the Middle Ages in Eng
land, it was forbidden, by
both the church and the law
to eat meat, eggs or milk dur
ing the Lenten season.
'Nearly Nonexistent'
Today Lenten fasting is
nearly nonexistent. The Catho
lic Church recently abolished
all fasting restrictions, with
the exception of Ash Wednes
day and Good Friday, ac
cording to Fr. Raymond Hain,
director of the Newman Cen
ter. The effect of the removal
of the fasting restrictions "has
been rather wholesome," he
"We at the Newman Center
have had what seems like a
lot more personal sense of re
sponsibility, since the remov
al of Lenten restrictions," Fr.
Hain noted.
He said that attendance at
Newman Lenten services has
increased considerably in
comparison to previous years.
He said that it would seem
there has been a "sense of
real reawakening for the past
few years," in modern con
ceptions of Lent.
'No Longer Gloomy'
People no longer think of
Lent as a gloomy time, but
as a time for postiuve spiritu
al development on a personal
responsibility basis, Fr. Hain
said. The idea of "giving up
things for Lent went by t h e
way a long time ago," he not
ed. The Rev. Alvin Petersen,
pastor of the Lutheran Stu
dent Chapel, said the Luther
an church views Lent as a
time of a "joyful fast" and a
time to remember the events
commemorated d u r 1 n g the
Easter season.
Participation in Lenten ser
vices at the campus Luther
an chapel "is good", Rev. Pet
ersen said. He explained that
students, "fresh out of homes"
where they regularly attend
ed Lenten services often at
tend out of habit, but that
students who have been on
campus longer attend with the
sense of the "real meaning"
of the Lenten season.
Many Attend Services
There are approximately as
many students attending
week night Lenten sendees as
those attending Sunday morn
ing services, Rev. Peterson
This Sunday is known to
some churches as "Laetare
Sunday", a time to rejoice
because it Is the fourth Sun
day of the season, and Lent is
half over.
In earlier days, the fourth
Sunday in Lent was called
"Mothering Sunday", because
young girls who were work
ing away from home were
traditionally given this day
off to make a visit home. It
was traditional for them to
take a gift to their mothers on
this visit.

the 1930's it aided refugees

During World War II, the
ISS established the World Stu

Iowa Student Resists
Non-Resident Tuition
To Outstate Campuses
A look into campus news
papers from around the na
tion and the Midwest reveals
problems and situations simi
lar to those cropping up at
the University.
A familiar note was
sounded recently at the Uni
versity of Colorado. Course

Colorado Daily.
Other campuses are having
problems with housing.
At the University of Kan
sas, four groups of students
plan to take a door-to-d o o r
sampling to learn the "pub
lic mind concerning fair hous
ing." The aim of the fair
housing campaign is to sup
port freedom of opportunity
in housing.
At the University of Min
nesota, a delegation has been
formed by students to launch
a "grass roots" project in
Uruguay under the Alliance
for Progress program.
At Kansas State University
the students "have moved
from a period of talking be
hind closed doors about mor
als ... to very open and
frank discussion," according
to Chester Peters, Dean of
It seems there is no prob
lem in being a student and
married at the same time, at
least at the University of Kan
sas. The Dally Kansan, speak
ing for some 1600 married
students on campus, stated
that "almost anyone can get
married and still go to school
today if he has a little imag
ination and Jcnowhow."
Culture is the password at
other campuses for the
spring. At Oklahoma State,
a foreign students' exhibition
of arts, crafts and foods
will be held at the Univer
sity. At Iowa State, the an
ttuil spring presentation of
fine arts, entitled "Focus,"
was launched with a modern
dance program.
Expansion of university fa
cilities was also in the lime
light. The State Board of Re
gents has approved plans for
the construction of a $4.8 mil
lion apartment addition for
married students at Iowa
University. At Kansas State,
the emphasis is on recreation,
as the plans for the construc
tion of a new swimming pool
are under consideration by
the Regents.
At Iowa University a con
ference of 60 delegates from
four Iowa campuses will be
held with the theme, "Why
Don't Tbey Listen to Me?"
The "humanistic," problems
facing colleges and universi
ties will be discussed hope
fully to recreate, by the ex
ch a b i e of viewpoints, a
"sense of community."
At Iowa State, 31 students
recently returned from the
annual YMCA seminar, which
included a tour of historic
spots in New York, Pennsyl
vania and the District of Co
lumbia. Student Governors

Research Grant
The University has filed an
application for a $23,950 one
year grant from the U.S. Pub

study of mental retardation
training-program needs.
Dr. Mark Hobson, graduate
dean, said departments with
programs related to mental
retardation will be studied.
He said objectives will be re
viewed, plans projected, activ
ities evaluated and a broadly
based inter-departmental and
inter-disciplinary program for
professional training in mental

Hobson credited Lincoln

initial work leading to the

before they are 21, they are

Open Slating
Miss Shattuck said that in
her opinion a party should not
slate every position available,
but leave some open for an
other party or candidates
"with ideas of their own that
have merit."
Gottschalk, on the other
hand, said he saw "no reason
why there shouldn't be slat
ing for every position. It is
logically consistent. Why sup
port less than the minimum?"
"There surely are enough
qualified people and I believe
it is another way of broaden
ing the scope of participa
tion," he added.
Both Gottschalk and Miss
Shattuck expressed interest In
the formation of an additional
party on campus.
"It would give students a
choice," said Miss Shattuck.
'it would also allow expres
sion of other issues and al-
low candidates to run
more than one party."
"One problem this year was
that there was no opposition
party," said Gottschalk. "A
two-party system makes for
more responsible government.
If Senator X knew his vote
might be criticized by another
group, he would think about
what he was voting for."

included the possibility of a
primary "at least within the
party" and finding the things
"that need doing and then
doing them."
One area In which Gott
schalk said political parties
could prod student govern
ment into "doing something"
was in the area of having the
president and vice president
of ASUN receive a salary:
"enough money so they could
almost drop out of school for
