Fifth floor of Nebraska Hall is the
headquarters of one of the most aptly
named elements of the University, the
University Extension Division.
Advertised as "the 500 mile cam
pus" in a display outside its office,
this division extends the services of
the University beyond the 500 mile
breadth of Nebraska to all 50 states
and 80 foreign countries, according
to Dr. G. B. Childs, director of the
"NEBRASKA HAS an excellent,
world-wide reputation for its extension
division," Allen Crabb, a freshman
who received his high school educa
tion by correspondence, said. "Not
many people know that here."
Crabb, whose father is an interna
tional engineer, has lived abroad the
last 13 years and picked up his high
school credits "here and there.".
Through correspondence courses
from various universities, while living
in .Nairobi, Kenya, he completed three
courses offered by Nebraska, and, in
January, 1968, graduated from the
Extension Division "first in his class."
"SINCE I planned to attend an
American university, I thought I
should take American correspondence
courses instead of working for a
British Certificate, which is the
equivalent degree," Crabb said.
"The three courses I took from
Nebraska (biology, modern English
and modern geometry) were ex
cellent." In addition to people like the
Crabbs, American civilians living
abroad, the Extension Division also
serves American military men and
ACCORDING TO Director Childs,
men in all branches of the service,
at home and abroad, may complete
high school by correspondence or may
take college courses for credit in the
An example of the latter is
Specialist 4 Scott L. Olsen, who, ac
cording to the U.S. Army, will have
completed three semesters of college
by correspondence when his tour of
duty in Korea ends.
Olsen studies "about five hours a
day" and, according to Childs, is pro
bably proctored by his education of
ficer when he is taking a test. He
plans to return to full time studying
and test-taking at Nebraska when he
leaves the service.
RUTH ABBOTT, office manager of
the Extension Division, estimated that
there are now 4,000 students taking
college correspondence courses from
the University and that "about 250"
of these are servicemen, many of

particular area where the number of

'Students, start looking soon
for your summer employment'
By Connie Winkler
Nebraskan Staff Writer
With only 116 days until the last
day of finals many employers and
students are thinking about summer
"I can't emphasize enough that
people who really want summer
employment should start looking ear
ly," said Frank Hallgren, director of
Several firms have already finished
hiring students for summer employ
ment through the Placement Office,
HALLGREN STRESSED that most
of the summer jobs available through
the Placement Office are for students
of junior standing with very specific
kinds of backgrounds. The summer
positions on the Placement Office
bulletin board are open particularly
to accounting and chemical and
mechanical engineering majors.
Both the Placement Office Library
and the Scholarships and Financial
Aids Office have information on
camps and resorts that are looking
for student employees.
For students who want to go
overseas the Financial Aids Office
also works with the Belgium Tours
Bureau to find overseas employment.
Under this program a student can
go to some foreign country for up

There was a time when you
needed two or more different lens
solutions to properly prepare and
maintain your contacts. No more.
Lensine, from The Murine Com
pany, makes caring for contact
lenses as convenient as wearing
Just a drop or two of Lensine
coats and lubricates your lens.
This allows the lens to float more
freely in the eye, reducing tearful
irritation. Why? Because Lensine
is a compatible, "isotonic" solu
tion, very much like your eye's nat
Cleaning your contacts with
Lensine retards the build-up of
foreign deposits on the lenses.
And soaking your contacts in Len
sine between wearing periods as
sures you of proper lens hygiene.
You get a frr,e soaking -storage

It has been demonstrated the

"This is not possible," Dr. Childs
said. "There are limits on the number
of credits which may be earned by
correspondence. It varies from college
to one yar, according to Jack Ritchie
of the office.
JOBS INCLUDE working with the
native people in supermarkets, laun
dries and construction work. Students
have a choice of job category and
country, Ritchie said.
SUMMER JOBS are also available
in Federal Agencies, according to the
Civil Service Commission. Applica-,

the National Park Service and Bureau
of Land Management are due Feb.

employment is desired.
For the Forest Service all ap

A limited number of National Park
Ranger positions are available for

SAC Committee .
Students need voice
in University decisions
"It is Important to set up a situation
where it is clear and obvious that
students have an active voice in
University decision making," said
Royce Knapp, chairman of the Stu
dent in the Academic Community
(SAC) Committee. This cannot be
mere token participation, he added.
Knapp's remarks came during a
two-hour SAC committee meeting
The student-faculty SAC Committee
was appointed by Lincoln campus
President Joseph Soshnik to consider
means to implement the SAC docu
ment. Recently it has concerned itself
with the provisions of ASUN Govern
ment Bill 24.
Saturday the committee sought to
organize subcommittees to study the
specific areas of the bill. Several of
these areas overlapped in the Com
Russ Brown, committee member,
suggested that the subcommittees
should be primarily fact-finding
bodies. John Davis, committee
member, added that they should also
make recommendations to the central
In some areas the committee
decided to ask the assistance of ex
isting University groups. The
chairman was asked to draft letters
to the student parking and housing
committees. Also included were the
deans of the colleges.
The letters ask: 1.) To what extent
are students currently involved in the
decision-making process in your area?

2.) What is the outlook for student
participation in the future?
Four sub-committees and members
were designated: Parking and Fees:
Russel Brown and Bob Zucker; Social
Affairs: Philip Crowl and Craig
Dreeszen; Union, Organizations, and
. Eligibility: William Colville and Tom
Morgan; Dicipline: John Davis and
The sub-committee should invite
other members as they find it
necessary, Knapp said. Younger stu
dent members would be particularly
useful, he added.
Brown said that the sub-committees
should be concerned more with the
students' place in the decision-making
process than with specific problem
areas. Committee members echoed
The SAC Committee should take an
interest in the academic problems of
the University also, Davis said.
Dreeszen commented that academic
problems were consciously left put of
G.B. 24 because they constitute such
a large area by themselves.
The academic problems are too im
portant to be considered as a side
issue by the SAC committee. Philin
Crowl said. He suggested that the
committee might decide on a few
general topics for study in the
academic area and ask Soshnik to
appoint a separate committee.
The committee set its permanent
meeting time as alternate Tuesdays
at 3:30 p.m. Its next meeting will
be held February 11.
