squads beat in rain
by Mark Gordon
Whether in Des Moines or Lincoln,
Nebraska Cornhusker athletic squads
didn't perform well in the rain.
In Lincoln, coach Tony SSiarpe saw
his Husker baseball Squad drop two
of three games to Missouri and fall
into the conference cellar, while coach
Frank Sevigne watched his track
squad capture two seconds and one
third at the Drake Relays in Des
Moines. Both events were held under
cloudy skies and sometimes drenching
Nebraska baseballers pushed across
Just seven runs in a three-game set
as MU downed NU 6-2 and 4-1 with
the Huskers winning only the Friday
opener, 4-0. But in that 4-0 blanking
of the Big Eight's third place team,
Husker left-hander Al Furby pitched
a route-going performance and
limiting the Tigers to three hits.
FURBY PITCHED exceptionally
well, and NU committed no errors
as the Huskers captured their second
victory in Big Eight play.
Freshman righthander Bruce
Cramer hurled well in Friday's second
game until a five-run Missouri ex
plosion in the sixth frame sent
Nebraska to its fifth conference
defeat. While Nebraska again gave
its five hits to five batters, only
Cramer connected for an extra base
knock, tagging a triple.
While Missouri left only one man
on base in the triumph, the Huskers
stranded seven men on the
Although both clubs swatted nine
hits Saturday, Mizzou received a two
run homer and two-run double from
right fielder Del Blunk in beating NU
4-1. The Tigers tagged two doubles
and one homer in sending Nebraska
to its sixth defeat in eight conference
FURBY WAS FORCED to hurl in
a relief role Saturday, and it obviously
wasn't to his liking as the Tigers
belted him with a two-run homer,
another hit and two walks. But by
then the outcome was already decided

NU's supreme triple jumper Lennox
Burgher, who holds the Drake record
in his specialty, won second with a
49-634 showing five inches below
the winning 49-11 set by Eastern
Michigan's Kauko Ketolainen.
HUSKER FOOTBALL star Joe
Orduna splashed his way to third
place in the 440 yard hurdles with
a :53.2 clocking. Although setting a
school record in the two-mile relay,
Nebraska could only score fifth in
that event with a time of 7:29.9.
But a graduated NU runner provid
ed Husker fans with memories of past
years, when world record co-holder
Charles Greene dashed to a 9.4 timing
in winning an invitational 100-yard
dash. As is customary with the former
University, runner, Green's clocking
established a Relay's record.
The Huskers travel to Boulder to
meet Colorado next Saturday, battle
Missouri in a 4 p.m. All-Sports Day
dual meet on May 10 and then com
pete in the Big Eight's outdoor track
and field championships May 17 at
Iowa State University in Ames.

blanked Seward Concordia 9
0 Saturday giving coach Ed
Higginbotham's squad a split
in two weekend matches.
Also, coach Harry Good's
golfers won three meets and
lost one in Friday action.
In dropping a 4-3 decision
to Drake Friday, the tennis
squad was led with single vic
tories by John Hendry and
Bill Brunell and the doubles
team of Hendry and Tom
Wiese. Saturday, Bill
Roehrs, Jim Rathe, Brunell,
Wiese, Hendry and Denny
Hoyle won single triumphs.

'Poor learning environment
sustained by tradition 9 Milton
Knoxville, Tenn. (LP.) Many
of America's college professors have
contributed to the current crisis in
higher education by allowing their
classrooms to fall out of step with
the times, the director of the
University of Tennessee's Learning
Research Center says in a newly
Dr. Ohmer Milton, writing in
"Learning and the Professors," con
tends that tradition and resistance to
change have sustained a learning en
vironment that fails to meet the needs
of today's college students.
Milton challenges faculty members
to take a critical look at the central
tasks of promoting learning and to
have the courage to change or discard
those procedures that have become
irrelevant in the modern world.
HE POINTS OUT that most of

The first true American-foreign
student organization at the University
will gain life as well as a name May
9 at the next joint meeting of the
Nebraska International Association
(NIA) and People-to-People.
These two groups, which work to
promote understanding among native
and foreign University students, have
functioned independently for several
years, according to Bruce Eveland,
Also, there has been a tendency for
foreign students to join NIA while the
American students join People-to-People,
"As a result, there has been a
definite polarization between the
groups, and neither has accomplished
its objectives," Eveland said. "We
hope to bring everyone together Into
a stronger organization and imple
ment programs of value for
NIA AND PEOPLE to People

some time on drafting a new combin
ed constitution for the unnamed
"It took a whole meeting just to
decide that the purpose of the group
today's teaching arrangements
originated at a time when students
were relatively few in number rand
faculty members were plentiful. This
situation has reversed now, he says,
and the tempo, of the times has been
radically altered, yet for some reason
college teachers have been reluctant
to broaden their responsibilities.
"Such practice and conditions for
learning as frequency of class
meetings, the fifty-minute hour, lec
turing, course, loads, credits, grading,
advising, rigid degree requirements,
demand for small classes, and many
others seem to be accepted by the
vast majority of faculty members as
established and enduring 'truths' for
effective and efficient undergraduate
instruction," Milton said.
He adds that it is "singularly in
congruent" that the same professors
who continually cast critical eyes at

should be 'to promote International
understanding, " Eveland said.
The constitution, now adopted, con
tains many innovations for both
groups. One of these is the formation
of an advisory group to make recom
mendations to the new organization's
The advisory group will be made
up of a representative from all "na
tional organizations and international
groups," which Eveland said would
include groups such as YWCA and
"We hope to give everyone a chance
to help in running the organization,"
he said. However, the advisory board
will be strictly advisory.
The new organization is open to
"any University member," according
to the constitution, and Eveland
stressed that this includes faculty,
who by getting involved "could pro
mote a stronger membership."
Included on the executive council
are the foreign student advisors from
Student Affairs, who Eveland said
"have as great a knowledge of the
needs of foreign students as anyone.
It was for this reason that we felt
they should be Included."
f o- 'ailed "truths" in their academic
specialties have left "truths" of col
lege instruction unchallenged.
MILTON WARNS, however, that
major changes in teaching-learning
arrangements are inevitable and that
professors must decide whether they
will be victims of emergency
measures or leaders in change based
upon systematic knowledge.
"Learning and the Professors" was
edited by Milton and Dr. Edward J.
Shoben Jr., director of the Com
mission on Academic Affairs of the
American Council of Education and
currently director, Center for Higher
Education, State University of New
York at Buffalo.
The book contains a collection of
14 articles on higher education in
cluding one by Milton entitled "The
State of the Establishment."
