Extensive Campus Coverage
While the Union works on an
expansion program, The Daily
Nebraskan is struggling to main
tain its present size.
Unless an all-University poll,
April 26, shows that students
favor paying an additional 50
cents a semester for their sub
scription to the paper, The Daily
Nebraskan again will be a tab
loid next fall.
Subscription to the paper is
now 50 cents a semester and is
included in the tuition-fee
"package" paid by all students.
The extra money is neccessary
to cover production costs, which
have more than doubled since
the enlargement in February of
' Vote in Classes.
In their 9 o'clock classes next
Wednesday or in polling places

tional fee for the Daily Ne
braskan. Voting will be .completely sep
arate on the two matters. That
is, even though students do not
favor an increase for the Un
ions, they may agree to pay the
additional fee for the "Rag." Or
they may say "no" to the paper's
increase and approve the Union

if they gained a thorough un
derstanding of it, The Daily Ne

umns the paper has attempted to
convince Cornhuskers that the
project is worth the proposed
Such coverage of a project
still little past the dream stage
has been possible only because
of the enlarged paper. In the
days of a tabloid edition, the
use of large pictures of other
unions and the many stories ex
plaining them would have been
out of the question.
A few figures will show more
clearly just why it was possible
for the paper to devote so much
space to the Union proposal. In
the full size paper nearly 600
column inches inches of type a
column wide are available, as
compared with 310 in a tabloid.
Since advertising has remained
fairly constant during both se
mesters, the actual space which
can be used for news is at pre
sent 470 inches, in comparison
with 190 a year ago.
To break the statistics down
still further, this is what the ad
ditional space has made possible:
Approximately 108 inches of
sports news each day at pre
sent, rather than 29 a year ago;
an average of 116 inches of edi
torial and column space each
issue this year, as compared to
38 last year.
Or to put it another way: in
the spring of 1949, The Daily
Nebraskan gave full support to
the model UNESCO conference,
and in the two weeks preceding
the affair printed 87 inches of
news about it.
This year in covering the cor
responding project the mock
UN assembly the paper used
406 inches. It should be em
phasized, of course, that the
enlarged paper rather than edi
torial policy was chiefly re
sponsible for the additional space
which was devoted to the con
ference. Also possible in the enlarged
edition are special columns on a
variety of subjects generally in
terested to college students. Dur
ing this semester these have in
cluded "Reel Stuff," "Worth
Reading," "On the Avenue" and
