Owner and Publisher AN EDUCATION IS PRICELESS Like anything that is good ... an education is expensive. But, in the long run it's the cheapest commodity that can be found. A good education is priceless, and will last for years untold. The young people of today should consider themselves extremely fortunate to have the opportunity for higher education. It wasn't always this way. Years ago the number of high school graduates who continued on to oillege was comparatively small, for several reasons. One reason might have been — too expensive; another — parents had no college education and did not believe in it Times have changed, however. Now, while mother is in the delivery room, father begins making plans for his son or daughter's college education. And, within a few years time, a college education has become a necessity ... in nearly every walk of life. * The point is, the price of an education hasn't decreased . . . hut the realization of its necessity has increased. But, do you realize that as much as your parents, who are undoubtedly paying the bills? Four years of your life, or however many years you may have 3eft before graduating, may mean the difference between a §4,000 •a year job and a $10,000 a year job. And anyone with only a grade school education can juggle those figures around and come up with the right answer. With the number of young people clamoring to get into a good college today, each of you should feel fortunate that you have been, -accepted by Upper Iowa. You didn't accept them, they accepted jou . . . and you can rest assurred that they only take students in the upper bracket scholastically. So, now it's up to you to prove that the faith of your parents and the administration of Upper Iowa university is not unfounded. Creek Bottom Comments — By Reuben Oh, No! Not that! Boy, are we embarrassed! We thought everything had been going bad enough the past few days, but then we found that our numbering machine had gone ka-flooey, and the pages numbers in this issue got jumbled up. • What next? Anyway, it's done now, and we can't.do anything about it. But PLEASE don't call the Leader office or the post office and ask where your other four pages are — because they aren't Just blame it on automation. Another year . . . another new group of students. And this year there are more new faces than ever before. At the beginning of each school year we wonder "what will the coming months produce? Will everything be peaceful during the year . .. will someone get off on the wrong track .. . just what lies ahead?" We feel that we have been most fortunate at Fayette in years past. The so-called "bad apples" that made their way into the university has been kept at a minimum. Some colleges and universities are not so lucky. One reason for not having many serious problems, we feel, is due to the high caliber of students who are accepted at iTpper Iowa. We feel that Dr. Garbee and his staff should be commended for their choice of young Americans. . Another reason serious problems are avoided is because of Herschel Hendrix, Dean of the In a frolicsome mood we allege course a lovely young ladv is -d ^i ^ZXfn these activities happened at dear twice as safe wi h two escorts * long * th Dean Hen- IJ ITTTT r. it i. inn, »u •• , c< drix still rules with an iron hand, old U.I.U.

I know of no experience in any line of endeavor that could have more facets, and could offer more interesting situations than that of a college president. Each night before I go to sleep, I thank the Creator of the Universe for the wonderful day that has just closed and for the many wonderful experiences that it has been my privilege to enjoy. I always include a special thanks for the privilege of being the president of Upper Iowa University. The contacts with the members of the Board of Trustees proves to be an unusually stimulating and challenging experience. The members of the Board are men and women primarily from the Northeast Iowa area. They contribute their time and leadership, and for the most part, generously of their funds, that the University may continue to serve Their*s is an interesting responsibility, in that the Board is a self-perpetuating Board, and is not responsible to any other group. Upper lowa is an interesting college because it is a private, non - tax supported institution, that has a charter which it must live up to. The administration of the University is in the hands cf the president, deans, business manager, public relations officials and others en the campus. The responsibility for setting the policy of administration is in the hands of the members of the Pay roll at Upper Iowa Upper Iowa University is to Fayette what most factories are to other towns in this area so far as payrolls are soncerned. The University has a monthly pay roll of nearly $40,000, which is paid to 82 employees. Ten of the employees are normally Fayette residents, while the others have moved here to accept positions at the University. Of all the employees at the University, 26 of them own property here. Last year the employees paid oaunty property taxes in excess of S5.000. University campus property in Fayette is valued at SI,589,000. DR. EUGENE GARBEE Board of Trustees. Selecting the faculty is a def- r«snonsibility of the president of the University. This responsibility has in the past few years, been increasingly passed on to the dean of the University. There are two reasons for this. One. the very detailed nature of searching for faculty members has beosme such a time-consuming responsibility that the president simply does not have sufficient hours in his schedule to do it. Secondly, the responsibility for the entire academic program of the University rests with the dean of the University. Thus, it should be.his privilege to select, or at least to recommend, the teachers who will carry out the responsibilities in the classroom. Because of our personal relationship, the relationship between Dean Hendrix and myself, this poses no problems at all. We see each other several times each day. We talk over all problems that relate 'o the University very frankly and in as concise terms as possible, so that we save as much time as possible. I should like, at this point to publicly express my very great pleasure in the selection of the faculty by Dean Hendrix. He has chosen outstanding teachers, as has been proved in the past few years. I look forward to a continued strengthening of our (Continued on Page 31} ed maiden and her "date" were to all the trees.
