THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
:Mew .-Day. Dawns . . .
Yesterday, the Joint committee of Student
Council and faculty members released the com
pleted edition of the proposed Council consti
tution. The publication of this constitution came
after long hours of work by the. committee and
the Council itself.
, To rnny it will appear a long gray mass of
.type and therefore., not be "well read. It must
.be remembered, however, that this long mass of
type Will te 'submitted to the student body for
ratification in May and if student government is
important to you it would be well to read and
study the constitution.
The copy which appeared in Wednesday's
Daily Nebraskan may be the last publication of
the constitution to which the student will have
access. For this reason, interested readers should
obtain an issue for reference when It comes time
for the general election.
The Student Council is hopeful that the stu
dents ,will deem the proposed constitution and
its further effect on student government impor
tant enough to render suggestions where neces
sary. The Daily Nebraskan will endeavor to ex
plain the articles of the constitution and will point
out both weak and strong portions.
But remember, upon the strength of this con
stitution will rest the future of student govern
ment at the University. It is the hope of the
Council that this statute will iron out the weak
nesses of previous constitutions.
What Time Is It? . . .
" University Standard time is screwy.
This was brought to the attention of the stu
dents in a Letterip by Nolan Jones. He pointed
. cut that clocks are not synchronized with the
City time. As a result, he said, much time is lost.
This appeared clearly Wednesday morning,
when the Carillon Tower tolled 12 minutes be
fore the hour (City Standard Time), the bell
rang on the hour, the Carillon Tower again at
two minutes after the hour and the bell again
at five minutes after the hour.
Such a condition has caused endless confusion.

of Interim councils and makeshift
constitutions are over. The time for a perma

of the constitution you are voting into existence,
Fair Angle ...
A reminder to the department of languages
and other departments that require hearing, re
cording or similar labs:
First semester class schedule books are being
compiled. From the fairest angle, wouldn't it
be better to have labs listed in the schedule so
students could plan for them?
The advantages line up : something like this:
instructors would have an accurate attendance
record; students would have the half hour or
whatever specified time as a regular class; grades
no longer would be cut for a student's inability
to attend an unscheduled session; the depart
ment would be able to set up a definite schedule
knowing just howe many would be coming and
when they would be coming; and finally, labs
would be used on a basis fair to the student and
fair to the department.
So the case stands; we'll wait until registration
when the schedules are issued to find out if
we again must accept "unscheduled" classes. J.k.
Professors have been angry because students
came to class late, students have missed their
buses and been late to classes because of incor
rect time on some clocks. All University clocks
do not agree as to the correct time.
Jones suggests that all clocks be set period
ically. The Daily Nebraskan would like to sec
ond the motion. If this cannot be done, some pro
be made to have correct time in
one standard time that prescribed
special University time. t.r.
mer, by Chanler, include "A
Breeze," "The Bee," "A Butter
fly," and "A Shower."
The program will be concluded
with two folk songs, "Loch Lo
mond" and "Dark Eyes." Ar
rangements are by Slmeone.
