lowing formula was received
by the Summer Nebraskan
from a contributing party
sitmcd, Anonymous, Am
bitious Student. A.A. Student
indicated that the formula
originally appeared on a
Colorado Campus.
1. Bring the professor news
paper clippings dealing with
his subject. Demonstrates
fiery interest and gives him
timely items to mention to the
class. If you can't find clip
pings dealing with his sub
ject,! bring any clippings at
random. He thinks everything
deals with his subject.
2. Look alert. Take notes
eagerly. If you look at your
watch, don't stare at it unbe
lievingly and shake it.
3. Nod frequently and mur
mur "How true!" To you this
seems exaggerated. To him,
it's quite objective.
4. Sit in front, near him.
(Applies only if you intend to
stay awake.) If you're going
to all the trouble of making a
good impression, you might
as well let him know you are,
especially in a large class.
5. Laugh at his jokes. You
CAN tell. If he looks up from
his notes and smiles expect
antly, he has told a joke.
6. Ask for outside reading.
You don't have to read it. Just
It creates an unfavorable im
pression if the rest of the
class has left and you sit
there alone, dozing.
8. Be sure the book you
read during the lecture looks
like a book from the course.
If you do math in psychology
class and psychology in rrtath
class, match the books for
size and color.

en. Legal Issue
Professor of law at the Uni
versity of Wisconsin, Wilbur
G. Katz has made some state
ments recently on the legal is
sue of instituting a depart
ment of religion into a state
"In view of the recent Su
preme Court decisions, there
should no longer he any sub
stantial doubts as to the legal
ity of academic study of re
ligion in state universities.
"The justices emphasized
the distinction between incul
cation of religious beliefs and
habits (through devotional ex
ercises) and objective study
of religion," Katz said.
Recent Decisions
"I think we can see in the
most recent decisions a con
cern about the danger ot in
culcating 'secularism.' It is
this concern," Katz said,
"that has led to Justice
Clark's explicit affirmation of
the legality and appropriate
ness of teaching about reli
gion in an objective way."
Philosophy professor
Charles H. Patterson noted,
"Nebraska people always
have been afraid that there
will be an attempt to prosely
tize." He said, "I always felt
it was a sound position to in
tegrate the study of religion
with other fields of study, but
I am not so sure this is best
Important Elements
Patterson feels that religion
is one of the most important
elements in human ex
perience. He would not be op
posed to a new department of
religion. For many years he
has taught courses in religious
philosophy within the philoso
phy department.
"The state university is an
ideal place for religion to be
s t u d i e d." Patterson said.
"There is more academic
freedom there."
Several years ago the Uni
versity entered into an agree
ment with the Cotner School
of Religion to offer courses
necessary for their students
to complete a degree require
ment. In turn the facilities of
the Cotner School were made
available to the University for
students to take courses in re
ligion for elective credit,
according to Vice Chancellor
Adam C. Breckenridge.
Satisfactory Arrangement
Breckenridge said that this
arrangement with Cotner has
been satisfactory. However In
recent years there have been
some institutions which have
said, "Nothing would be finer
than for the University to take
over the function of the Cot-

Photo Grant
Given School
A $200 grant to the photogra
phy development fund has
been made to the School of
Journalism at the University
of Nebraska by the Central
Nebraska District Press As
sociation. At their annual convention
held this year at Johnson
Lake, members of the associ
ation added their contribution
to those already made by two
other districts of the Nebraska
Press Association.
"Contributions like this one
and those of individual mem
bars just help prove one very
important point," said Neal
Copple, Director of the School
of Journalism. "They prove
that the state's press is sup
porting its School of Journal

press of any other state in
the country."
ner School, establishing
own department.
"As long as there has been
a facility available across the
street," Breckenridge said,
"to add a religion department
for the convenience of some
made no sense."
Outside Funds
There have been some in
stitutions w h i ch have said
that they would raise funds
for a Chair to be established,
or to pay salaries, Brecken
ridge said.
Most recent of all has been
the resolution presented
to the Board of Regents, he
"I have no notion what the
Regents will do with the re
quest, or what they will do if
the Legislature were to accept
the idea." Breckenridge said
e man i Know now nigh on
the priority list the request
might appear.
Breckenridge said, "I think
some of the campus pastors
feel that I, the Chancellor, and
Dean Militzer are opposed to
the teaching of religion. This
is unfounded, unwanted and
"We have been advised that
we are omitting from the
curriculum the study of an
essential part of mankind's
civilization, but to say that re
ligion is ignored in the Uni
versity is unfounded," Breck
enridge said. "In the study of
English, history, political
science, public opinion and
propaganda you can't ignore
the place of religion," he ex
plained. Definite Interest
Ransom said, "I think there
is a definite interest in the
student body. There is a lot
of interest in religion. It is a
prominent topic of discussion
in the fraternities an ! soror
ities," he noted.
If there was a department
of religion, Ransom is sure it
would be filled.
Ransom explained that
the main interest of the Coun
cil on Religion is to keep the
idea alive long enough unto
something happens. He said
there is support needed from
the denominations of
the state, the Legislature, and
prominent people.
Hardin said, "Nothing is go
ing to happen immediately;
'however, it may be discussed
before the fall semester by
the Board of Regents".

Before the SS Centennial
left for New Orleans, La., the
editor of the Summer Ne
braskan requested that I send
back some articles on the ex
periences of four college stu
dents who take a raft down
the Missouri-Mississippi Riv
er. The only thing that has
changed is that the raft has
become the first ship in the
Great Navy of the State of
Nebraska. We are still on the
Missouri River headed for
New Orleans and I'm still try
ing to find a good answer to
the question: What's it like
when four students take a
"ship" down the Missouri
Mississippi River?
The trip Is similar to neo
politan ice cream; it has
something for different tastes
in the same package. Each
day as the crew, Rich Gal
lentine, Mark Hansen, Tom
Moderow and myself, is on
the river we find that time
floats by as we do and we
can relax. Yet each day as
the Junior Representatives of
Nebraska we have scheduled
port calls where we meet dig
nitaries, greet the people and
advertise the Nebraska Cen
tennial. This time schedule
and our activities ashore
leave us tense and tired.
The current helps us meet
our schedule and most of the
time the river accepts us as
a fellow wanderer. We ride on
the crest of the river's natur
al power in a smooth quiet
glide. At other times when

After four days we had ex
perienced these characteris
tics of the river. We've
learned how to handle certain
situations and how to avoid
others. In this period of riv

has been provided by the riv

been our own creation.
Our first emergency came
with the first day that we
cruised alone. On a calm
stretch of the Missouri River
between Nebraska City and
Rulo, Nebraska the crew of
the SS Centennial decided it
would be helpful to practice
dropping anchor. With all
hands at their stations we cut
the engines and heaved the
stern anchor into the channel.
We were complimenting each
other on the smoothness of
the operation when the anchor
caught hold. As the current
sucked the stern down, water
began flooding into the wheel

Everyone was too surprised

ferent tapes can be channeled

additional flexibility.
Until this program becomes
a reality, however, summer
instructors, who are faced
with the obstacle of aiding
students in their pronun-
ciation without the benefit of
the lab, are tackling their
problem in several ways.
Marcia Oummings, Spanish
instructor, stated, "I have
tried to emphasize oral pro-
nunciation in class. I pav
special attention to get
through the exercises in the
textbook that deal with lab-
oratory work. It would have
been easier to use the lab as
the nature of the tapes helps
the student improve his con
versational skills. He's not
getting as much opportunity
to improve as if the lab was
in operation."
R. W. Tyler, Professor of
Romance Languages,
commented that the lack of
a lab has not made too much
of a difference "although it's
harder to get around to even,'-

in a lab of 20-25 persons . . .
We'd rather operate as near
peak performance as we pos
sibly can."
The professor's enthusiasm
for the lab is apparently not
reflected by the students. One
student stated, "It's not
geared to be interesting and
the time would be better spent
in additional classroom in
struction." Regardless of one's views of
the effectiveness of the lab,
the f o r t h c o m i n g re

stant strive towards improve
