Chosen by a committee of
multi-racial scholars, Holland
and Hraba received one-year
grants on the basis of their
planned dissertations relating
to minority studies.
Holland, an English instruc
tor, will study the African
traits in Afro-American culture
as expressed in its formal and
folk literature.
"A good deal of research Is
needed on cultural tradition,"
he said.
Holland added that his grant
of $1,400 will be used to finance
trips to Atlanta, Harvard and
possible New Orleaans.
He receive his bachelor
degree in 1965 from NU and his
masters in 1967.
Currently teaching at Iowa
State, sociologist Hraba will
use his $1,165 grant to study the
socialization into black con
sciousness. He will attempt to
locate some of the reasons for
"Black pride" of Lincoln
children and expand the In
quiry to Black adolescents.

How much can one company do
to clean up the environment?
Until the problems of pollution
are under control until its effects
are reversed no company can ever
be doing "enough'
What follows is a listing of
things General Electric is doing to
ease environmental problems.
Some are new. Some are as old as
twenty-five years.
Should we be doing more?
Yes, of course. Every company
should. These are only a few of the
more important ones. But every day
sees us take more steps in many
more directions.
General Electric is working
toward a process that will use
bacteria to convert garbage into a
high-protein food for cattle. One
possible answer to the mounting
garbage problem.
Modern, pollution-free mass transit
from General Electric is carrying
more and more commuters into cities
without their cars.
GE pioneered the development of
nuclear power plants. A nuclear
plant makes electricity without
making smoke. While there is still
Hraba earned
degree in 1965 and masters in
1968 from NU. He, like Holland,
plans a career in college
As the grants don't provide

being tackled on a site-by-site basis
and can be solved. But for now,
Increasing demands for power can
be met without an increasing
output of air pollution.
GE has developed a waste
treatment unit to significantly
reduce the water pollution from
ships and boats.
We have been chosen by the
federal government to solve the
problem of jet-engine noise for the
aviation industry. Our present jet is
already quieter than those on the
passenger planes of the Sixties, and
yet it's nearly three times as powerful.
GE designed and built an
undersea habitat called "Tektite."
Several teams of scientists have lived
in the habitat while studying coral
reef ecology and ocean pollution.
We're designing an earth-resources
satellite which will be used for a
worldwide survey of the oceans.
A first step toward the ultimate
control of water pollution.
Our newest jet airplane engine,
for the DC-10, is designed to be
smoke-free. Of course, there's more
to jet exhaust than just smoke. And
our goal is to one day make them
run totally clean.
General Electric makes high
temperature vortex Incinerators for
his bachelor
dissertations dealing with an
ethnic minority in the U.S.,
said Drew.
Each candidate submitted a
budget request with a sum
mary of his dissertation and a
"letter of support" from his
major professor, Drew ex

fellowships have been offered.
It's a trial year for the pro

believe the Foundation intends
to increase the number of
grants in the future."

The problems of the environ

solutions will be difficult and

working on them.
Why are we running this ad?
We're running this ad, and
others like it, to tell you the things
General Electric is doing about the
problems of man and his
environment today.
The problems concern us
because they concern you. We're a
business and you are potential
customers and employees.
But there's another, more
Important reason. These problems
will affect the future of this country
and this planet. We have a stake in
that future. As businessmen. And,
simply, as people.
