They will note the views of the
students regarding the consid
ered facilities.
More information tbout the
large scale student contacting
and results will be published in
following editions of the "Rag."
It is planned by the commit
tee that the student contacts will
be as representative as possible.
In order that this may be ac
complished, the contacters, who
will not merely be pollers, will
take out the forms to all parts
of the campus. "
Also the survey will be more
authoritative if the student in
terviewed will include simple
information about himself. This
will eliminate any haphazard
tabulation on the part of either
the interviewer or. interviewee.

Rag Contrasts
'New and Old'
Page Sizes
Today's front page is a far cry
from what students and faculty
members have been seeing in
The Daily Nebraskan this semes
ter. The amount of news-filled
space represents the old tabloid
size, the size to which The Daily
Nebraskan will return unless
students vote for a 50 cent fee
raise to continue the present
seven-column paper.
Students will have the chance
to express their approval or dis
approval of the larger Daily Ne
braskan in their Wednesday 9
o'clocks, with the proposed Union
fee raise. The seven -column
paper has been running on the
same subscription price which
paid for last semester's five
column "Rag," and this fee has
not proved sufficient to make
ends meet. If the students vote
"yes" on the subscription hike,
they will continue to receive the
larger paper.
Short of Space
Last semester, working with
the amount of space represented
on 'today's front page, the "Rag"
staff often was unable to print
much of the news which came
into the Nebraskan office. It gen
erally was necessary to cut
stories down to the minimum
facts; and if an item wasn't the
"big" news of the day, it ran the
risk of not being printed.
Had the tabloid size been used
throughout today's paper, on all
four pages, much news again
would have been lost. "Just
Around" and "News and Views"
would have been tossed out, and
the other columns which appear
in the larger "Rag" on other days
of the week would never see
print. Sports would take a heavy
blow, and editorial space would
be limited.
Continuance of the present,
"king-size" Nebraskan depends
on the student vote.

Class Lists
Class lists are available in the
office of the Registrar, Jtoom 103

"This will give students an
opportunity to determine their
standing in advance of the week
of April 24, anc also make it
possible for them to make any
corrections," said Dr. Hoover.
Following the issuance of
registration tickets, students are
asked to make appointments
with their advisors for confer
ences. .These conferences will be
held during the period of April
24 to May 3. s
Fall Program x

fall semester studies are made
up, students will leave their
work sheets with their advisors

to be affixed.
