Mueller gets equipment;
Projector offers nice shot
After several months of
remodeling, the Ralph Mueller
Planetarium at the Morrill Hall
will re-open next week, putting
Into use a recently installed
planetarium projector.
"The new Instrument is a
vast improvement over the old
one and in addition it is not as
earthbound as the old one
was," It. A. Shellhouse,
planetarium coordinator, said.
The new equipment can be
set to show the sun, moon,
planets, stars and Milky Way
as seen from any place on
earth in the past, present or
future.
Public previews of the new
facility will be given Saturday
and Sunday, March 7-8.
Other special equipment in
the Mueller Planetarium
enables viewers to see the solar
system from deep in space,
Shellhouse said. The roll, pitch
and yaw capability stimulates
for the audience the feelings
and views astronauts ex
perience as they change
headings in space.
The hours for public shows at
the planetarium are: Friday,
7:30 p.m.; Saturday, 2:45 p.m.;
Sunday, 2:30 and 3:45 p.m.
Weekday hours are reserved
for elementary and secondary
school groups and University
classes.

If you don't believe in war
by MARSHA BANGERT
Nebraskan Sport Writer
The Peace Corps Is looking for
volunteers who don't believe in war and
who will fit into the Corps' apolitical
organization, according to Todd Wilkins,
Peace Corps representative.
Wilkins, who will be recruiting in thex
Nebraska Union Friday, said the Corps
is not married to all U.S. foreign policies.
He added that the volunteer who supports
the war in Vietnam is "rare."
Wilkins and his wife, Lynne, served
in Brazil, from Oct., 1967, to Nov., 1969.
Peace Corps volunteers do not feel that
they are merely representatives of the U.S.
government, Wilkins said. Volunteers, in
fact, often stay out of politics to avoid
hurting the image of the Corps.
Wilkins noted that it is impossible for
a volunteer to explain U.S. involvement
in Vietnam until he knows the language
of the area extremely well and the
background of the person to whom he is1
talking.
When he was asked a direct question
concerning Vietnam, Wilkins often replied,
"I don't understand the war. I don't wish
to participate in it."
The Peace Corps was founded in 1961
with idealism, he said.
"Today idealism can get lost In the
administration necessary for an organiza
tion the size of the Peace Corps," Williams
said. "But what really counts is the in
dividual's attitude. It's up to him to keep
idealism alive."
"It takes a strong commitment for a
college graduate to give up the opportunity
for a high paying job in the states to
earn $75 a month overseas."
The experience in a foreign country
can be frustrating, especially the first six
months, he said. During this period the
volunteer learns to use the language and
often must sell the program to the people.
While the Peace Corps only goes to
countries where it has been invited, Wilkins
said that the invitation often comes from
officials or a social organization rather
than the people.
"It is the job of the Peace Corps
volunteer to develop the program in the
area and help the people understand it."
Wilkins said some volunteers return from
the host countries frustrated because of
the slow pace of change.
Wilkins found the experience rewarding
about what he had expected except
for a greater emphasis on organization
and the use of nationals in the program.
Problem for married students:
No child day care
or help for parents
by BILL SMITHERMAN
Ntbraikan Staff Wrlttr
The University has no day
care facilities or programs to
aid married students in finding
day care facilities for their
children, according to Ronald
W. Wright, Assistant to the
University Business
Manager.
There are two public child
care centers in Lincoln, but
neither of these is designed for
students.
Mrs. Margaret Connealy,
director of the Malone Com
munity Center Day Care pro
gram, said many students have
called her and expressed the
need for a day care program.
But, the Malone program and
the public Lincoln Child Care
center are primarily involved
with children whose parents
are receiving welfare
payments, and most students
do not qualify, she said.
A survey of married students
in the Nebraska Union Friday
and Monday through Wednes
day of next week is planned to
determine If there is a need for
a University Child Care
center.
ASUN gave its support to the
survey and the concept of a day
care center in a resolution
passed Wednesday, according
to Kari Ronning, one of the
proposal's backers.
University officials said 4,909
students (about 27 per cent ot
the NU enrollment) are mar
ried. But, there are no figures
available at present on how
many have children.
"If the survey shows there is
a need for the center the pro
posal will be taken to the
Faculty Senate," Miss Ronning
continued. "We would like as
many married students as
possible to participate in the
survey so we will have figures
to take to the administra
tion." She added that the center, if
approved, would opera's as
cheaply as possible. Funds
would come from the
University and small 'fees paid
by parents of children who at
tend, Miss Ronning said.
"It is possible that students
working in the center might be
given credit in elementary
education," she said. "This
would eliminate the need to pay
workers."
