senior staff writer, on why
University faculty members
leave Nebraska for jobs at
other universities.
Low salary is not the only
factor which drives Univer
sity faculty away from the
school, according to resigning
faculty members.
Faculty members who have
submitted resignations stated
in interviews that low salary
is only one of many complex
reasons why they are leav
ing. One of the men said that
sometimes salary rate is used
as a rationalization for a res
ignation and is not the real

that advances in the rank are
important. Several stressed

'State Needs Action,
Not Soap-Box Politics
An attack was leveled at
Nebraska politicians who
merely "warm over old
Tbe attacker was Phil Sor
ensen, one of tbe Democrat
ic candidates for the office of
t a t e .governor. Sorensen
spoke before a meeting of tbe
University's Young Demo
crats Tuesday evening.
Sorensen stated that, in his
opinion, the Nebraska state
legislature could be separat
ed into two factions or groups.
There are those who are real
ly interested in improving the
state government and those
who come to the legislature
only to promote their own
narrow, selfish interests.
Warmed-over Hash
"I'm tired of hearing those
soap-box orators who merely
get out their warmed-over
hash and heat it again," de
clared Sorensen. "They talk
about our youth leaving the
state. They talk about the
lack of jobs here in Nebras
ka. "But never once do they
get down to constructive pro
grams or suggestions for con
structive programs. Those
on their soap-boxes never say
anything of substance."
Sorensen said that if people
believe in an effective state
government, they have to do
more than talk about tbe
problem. Rather, tbey must
propose some suggestions.
'This is where the soap
boxers fall down," empha
sized the candidate. "They
don't come forward with any
plans; they just enumerate the
Legislature Complimented
He complimented trie last
session of the legislature for
their interest in state govern
ment. "The last legislature was
dominated by those who want
ed to do something about
state government. But we
must be careful not to allow
the type of leadership from
the soap-box to gain power.
The state can't afford t h e
dangers of a do-nothing lead
ership." 'The state of Nebraska
needs a leadership willing to
do things. Tbe leadership we
ability of research materials
in their fields. One man said
that changing jobs is more a
"matter of course" than any
thing else.
Another of the resigning
teachers noted that personal
relationships within a depart
ment are a large factor in
causing resignations.
Dean of Faculties. A. C.
Breckenridge stated that low
salary is the greatest single
reason why faculty leave the
Dr. David Trask, associate
professor of history, listed
several reasons why lie is re
signing to take a position at
the State University of New
York at Stony Brook.
Trask said he has always
had to contend with a "lack
of support" from University
administration for what he
can do without is that of the
men of tbe soap-box, with
their warmed-over bash," con
cluded Sorensen.
The Democratic candidate
also commended the club for
their work on his caravan
through the state last week
end. "1 usually am able to only
shake hands, introduce my
self to the people and pass
out some brochures," said
Sorensen. ' But this last week
end, this Young Democratic
club did a lot of this for me."
"I try to talk mainly to
Democrats before the pri
mary, so I am not commonly
found in the banks," he joked.
"I usually head for the tav
erns and pool halls to meet
my people."
"Anyway, this time when I
walked into these establish
ments to shake some hands,
the patrons said for me to go
on, for they had already
heard about me. The Young
Democrats had been there be
fore me, and had done my

considers "significant pro
grams for the University."
Trask also cited lack of time
and money for work in his
specialty, the history of
American foreign relations.
He said he has "found it dif
ficult to do any research at
all, because of poor facilities
and lack of time."
Trask said another factor in
his resignation is that he has
found it "increasingly diffi
cult to deal with students. I
feel most effective in dealing
with students on an individu
al basis," Trask said.
Both the large classes and
the faculty-student ratio, ov

Recommendations as to an

ASUN President Kent Neu

Sen. Ron Neal, chairman of

that his committee's report

Neal added that the report

you must first build men, . . .
I have changed men to gen

Brown, dean of men at the

Brown stressed the building

Brown said maturity is an
important factor, and that
with maturity comes respon

"You are entitled to all the
