Federal education policies criticized
There is a growing intrusion, most notably by the
federal government, into the decisions of colleges and
universities, according to the president of the American
Council of Education.
Jack Peltason at a press conference at the Ililton Hotel
Wednesday, said the foundation of higher education was
built by individual colleges making their own policies. He
said his organization would resist any centralization of
Peltason gave as an example a Veterans Administration
attempt to insist that instructors take roll every day, so
the VA could find out if veterans were going to class.
Another example Peltason cited was an attempt by the
U.S. Office of Education to force universities and colleges
to adopt a standardized tuition refund plan, so guaranteed
government loans could be simplified.
"Those kinds of decisions should be left to the
discretion of the schools." Peltason said.
He said it was unreasonable to expect universities
to change 20-year-old institutions in 60 days.
While emphasizing the plight of small colleges and state
supported universities, Peltason said the problems of
higher education have taken a back seat to other prob
lems. "Now they have other things on their minds, such as
welfare and inflation. We're competing our education
against more urgent claims."
The costs of energy, supplies and salaries have sky
rocketed, while the government and private business have
less money to support the colleges and universities, he
'The economic health of the country is probably the
single most important factor facing us," Peltason said.

Education, called for the federal government to stop
interfering in the handling of college and university
policies and organization.
Center helps students
cope with pressures
During the 1977-78 school year, the UNL Mental
Health Center helped 500 to 600 students cope with their
pressures and anxieties. This year, staff members hope
more students will use services.
Located in the University Health Center, the service
offers assistance 24 hours a day. The five staff members
are available for individual and group counseling.
Director Robert Heins is convinced that many fresh
men would have an easier time facing culture shock and
the pressures of school if they knew of the center's
services and disregarded old stigmas.
"Some still think it's OK to get a red hot appendix but
not OK to' get a red hot depression," he said. "Staff
members see a higher proportion of students in the higher
grades whoVe had psychology classes and, for them,
there's less of a stigma about getting help.
"When they find themselves unable to concentrate or
devote their full energy as a student, or are lonely and
relieve their anxiety by excess alcohol or drugs, we can
help them make decisions, leam how to handle the stress
Heins says students in these kinds of crises usually need
to make only one to four visits to the center, "therapy is
not long term, we do know how to help in a hurry,''
There is no fee up to the eight visit. Costs are included
in the regular student fees.
Pointing out the recent television documentary,
"College Can be Killing," Heins said members of college
communities across the nation are learning how to
become sensitized to depression. This film is being shown
to UNL student residence hall assistants and members of
Although UNL is far below other institutions of its size
in reported suicides (two in the last three years) and
suicide attempts (12 known in the last year), Heins is
concerned that increasing pressures for grades will boost
those numbers if students don't learn how to handle stress
He also said there are between 3000 and 4000 shy
students who could benefit from counseling for their lack
of self-esteem. The center also offers group therapy, a
biofeedback program and relaxation training.
