Since then, the elections com
mittee, under the chairmanship
of Louise McDill, has studied the
problem and recommended action
to the Council. All aspects of the
problem were discussed by the
body, and representation plans of
other schools were studied in an
attempt to find the plan best
suited for the University.
The plan of representation fi
nally asreed upon by the Council
is a modified college representa
tion plan. It provides for 30
members, six of whom would be
holdovers, nominated and elected
from the council now in
Seventeen members will be
nominated and elected by the
various colleges of the Univer
sity. Arts and Sciences will have
four representatives; Teachers
college will have three; Engi
neering, two; Business Adminis
tration, two; Agriculture, two;
and all other colleges, four.
One representative will be a
foreign student and two will be
elected at large from the sopho
The other four members will
be composed of the chairmen of
four campus co-ordinating com
mittees, which would be set up
under the new council. These
committees would provide for
the co-ordination of University
According to Bob Raun, the
committees would serve in a
position similar to a presiden
tial cabinet. Student Council rep

betweens for the Council and the

dent spirit, religious affairs, ac
tivities and orientation, and cam
In all Student Council elections
for holdover members, and for
campus-wide members, a pre
ferential ballot will be used. If
four representatives are to be
elected from the field of candi
dates, voters will vote for four
students, stating the order of
choice. Thus voters will express
their first, second, third, and
fourth choices on the ballot
"This method of election will
assure minorities of representa
tion on the Council," stated
Three Polling Places
Three polling places will be
provided for under the new plan.
Two will be located on the City
campus at the Union and at
Love library. The other polling
spot will be on the Ag campus.
The Council tentatively ap
proved the formation of a party
system on the University campus.
These parties would be' open,
recognized, and would have writ
Restrictions on campaign ex
penditures and publicity will be
provided for. Campaign material
will be limited to hand-made
material. No party could spend
more than $50 in an election and
individual candidates would be
limited to $15.
Rallies and other political
plans must be scheduled in ad
vance with the Student Council
and approved by the election
committee. Campaigning will be
restricted to the University cam
pus only, and will not be carried
on near the polls. Publicity in
The Daily Nebraskan must be
equal to all parties or candidates.
The elections conimittee has
recommended that each college
set up a student board to take
charge of the elections in their
