'A Memorable Day . .
Wednesday was an election day which will
long be remembered in the history of campus
politics. A record breaking number of votes were
cast on the question of a proposed Student Coun
cil constitution.
The majority of those voters, by a margin of
325, voted yes, and in so doing approved efforts
of interim councils for more than two years.
The majority was probably justified in ac
cepting the constitution. The most important is
sue to remember, however, is the great amount
of interest shown by students in campus politics.
Students have shown by their interest and ac
tive campaigning that a healthful multi-party
system will function well at the University.
The Student Council itself campaigned vigor
ously to appeal to the majority and pass the
constitution. The campaign was primarily against
the Faction or All University Party. The Council
appealed to the majority to approve a statute
It May Take Time . . .
It will be a long time before members of the
1951-1952 AWS board forget the women's point
system. This was evidenced Monday afternoon
t the board's open meeting when studnts pre
sented ideas for revision, modification and im
provement of the existing activity point system.
The tremendous task facing board members and
the amount of study and time necessary to de
vise a system which will merit approval of the
majority of students was Well realized by all.
Several proposals were offered to revise the
system for evaluating points. In order to elim
inate as many as possible discrepancies in point
ing, one student suggested that each AWS board
member take one organization study its pur
pose, attend meetings and become familiar with
all phases of its work. After this step has been
taken, AWS could more fairly evaluate the points.
Another suggestion was that AWS ask the top
woman office holder in every activity to form
a board to evaluate points. These women would
be familiar with the amount of work and re
sponsibility connected with each position in her
organization and would be able to evaluate points
correctly. Each woman on this board probably
would be familiar with at least one other or
ganization and be able to add her knowledge to
the report given by other board members. Only
drawback to this method, would be the possibility
that the board would overpoint or underpoint
offices to the advantage of the organization. This,
however, would be a weakness of any group that
helps point activities. Actually, this proposal is
fashioned after the men's old point system when
a similar board pointed men's activities. Basic
difference is that enforcement policies and ac
tions would remain in hands of AWS.
Perhaps a combination of methods suggested to
AWS could be used to evaluate points. Above
all, when points are finally decided, students
making the table must be familiar with each
office they point and the work connected with
it. Points must be based entirely on the amount
Well, this is it . . . the last KNUS column of
the semester. We hate to sign off, 'cuz it's been
so much fun working on KNUS . . . covering the
campus with music, news, fashions, and sports.
But there's one consolation for this end-of-the-year
leave-taking; and that's the fact that we'll
be back to start the 1951-1952 fall semester with
lots of vim and vigor (after a summer's recuper

Yep, the KNUS staff members who aren't
leaving us because of graduation, or Uncle Sam,
will be rushin' back to campus next Septem
ber (old soldiers never die, ya' know) to report
on summer activities . . . and to put into prac
tice all of the know-how nuggets they've picked
up during three months of actual practice. Ya'
see, many radio-majors plan to work at com
mercial broadcasting stations throughout June,
July, and August ... in order to continue the
practical, and realistic training, that KNUS has
given them.
But don't let the comments about "radio ma
jors" throw yon off the beam . . . because KNUS
Is looking for lots of active participants for the
next semester . . . and you don't have to be
enrolled In any radio courses at all. It just takes
a lot of Interest, a little time, and a love of hard
work, fun, and excitement.
If you think now that you'd like to give KNUS
a chance to use your writing, announcing, act

station studios in the basement of the Temple
building. Let the staff members who are In the
office know that you're interested, so they can

Editorial Comment
Right Direction . . .
The recent action of the faculty senate in ap
proving student representation on faculty com
mittees is a step in the right direction.
Although not holding voting membership on
faculty committees, students will have an op
portunity to learn the reasons for faculty ac
tion. By the same token, the faculty will have a
chance to obtain student viewpoints on ques
tions affecting both groups.
When there is no chance for mutual discus
sion, students and faculty alike sometimes get
the idea that the other side is being unreasonable.
There is, at times, mutual misunderstanding.
Students certainly are vitally concerned with
semester examinations, social affairs, commence
ment and student conduct. A great deal can be
gained through mutual discussion of such prob
lems. The plan will be tried for three years. Let
us hope that it is successful. t.r.
'KNUS News'
Campus Radio Station
To Sign Off Until Next Fall
By Nancy Porter
Enuf of that . , . here's a little news about this
year. Tomorrow afternoon at 4:30 p. m., "Great
Short Stories" is relinquishing its usual quarter
hour for a unique program! It's the University
of Nebraska's Speech choir, presenting the popu
lar "Manhattan Tower" . . . that saga of the
world's greatest adventure center, the metro
politan heart of our country , . . New York City.
If you've never heard the pulsing rhythms of
choral presentation, you won't want to miss the
speech department's one-and-only Speech choir!
And if you're already familiar with the spine
tingling effect of human voices, blended in a
rhythm more thrilling than a full-piece orches
tra .. . well, then, we don't liave to tell you
about it. Whatever you do, twist that radio dial
to 710, at 4:30 p.m., tomorrow afternoon, for
your University's Speech choir and "Manhattan
Now one final word ... a word of thanks and
gratitude to Paul Bogen, director of radio,
KNUS manager, and a grand person! Mr. Bogen
put KNUS on its feet and achieved an all
campus radio station, while at the same time,
and no one knows how he found the time he
taught classes and held open house in his office
for the myriad students who constantly wandered
in and out to consult him about their profes
sional, and personal, problems. Never too busy
to see anyone . . . never too busy to help all of
us out . . . Mr. Bogen's departure in June is go
ing to be hard for all of us to take. We hope
you'll be back, Mr. Bogen . . . and until you are,
lots of luck and happiness!
This is the KNUS sign-off till September. 'See
ya' then . . .
which virtually refuses any one party a dominant
hold on the Student Council.
The Faction, or any other group or individual
who opposed the constitution still has a great
responsibility. They should strive to reach by
amendment some agreement as to the compro
mise they want in student government.
Time and machinery are available for op
ponents and there are 1130 to work with next
year's interim council to find a middle road on
highly controversial Issues.
Above all, we must preserve in the future
interest that was shown in this election. To do
this, students must be informed of negotiations
toward realization of any proposal and the dif
fering views concerning the negotiations.
Students themselves have decided what kind
of government they want to rule them, and they
must continue to make their wishes known
openly and continually. j.w.
of work and responsibility of the job with no
regard to prestige.
In addition to methods of evaluating points,
AWS is considering the idea of a flexible point
system based on scholastic average. If started at
a reasonable average 6.0 or 6.5 this would
probably gain approval of most women students.
Points would increase gradually as a student's
grade average was higher.
Whatever the action taken by AWS it should
be detailed and extensive and open to student
hearings and opinion. The organization is in
capable hands and formation of a permanent
system which is fair would certainly relieve AWS
of criticism and also please students. A mere
summer's work, however, is insufficient time to
devise such a permanent time.
So long as we must tolerate a women's activity
point system, let it be fair, effective and flexible.
AWS can not do it alone; campus leaders must
help. j.k.
