as a student in the University of Iowa and his bond with his alma mater is secured by a younger brother Loren director of the University of Iowa Alumni Association The Hancher thesis is that education

that often changes dras tically from year to year Theres true profoundness in this further Hancher observa tion We have come to an age in the history of civilization domi nated or at least influenced by our capacity to make organized attacks upon our areas of ignorance Notwithstanding the vastness of our knowledge and the ex plosive growth of new knowl edge we must in our calmer and more
