As luck would have it, Jan met Glassford a few minutes later and collected a dollar from him.

Burt, dean of the College of Pharmacy, felt that there should be one representa tive from each of their colleges. The constitution allows only one from both the College of Phar macy and College of Dentistry. Burt and Hooper said that only one representative from the two colleges was impractical and the representative would probably be from the college having the major ity of students. The second suggested amend ment concerns revisions and amendments of the constitution, as explained in Article 12. The con stitution states, "Proposals for re visions of or amendments to the Constitution may be originated by a majority vote of two-thirds of the Student Council or a petition, submitted to the Student Council, signed by not less than 500 regularly-enrolled students." It was suggested and passed that the Board of Regents and Faculty Senate also approve amendments to the constitu tion. Representatives of Student Council at the meeting were George Wilcox, vice president, and Miriam Willey, judicial chairman. After acceptance of the consti tution, Cobel said, "I feel that a great step forward has been taken towards the principle of student government on the campus of the University of Nebraska." If the Board of Regents accepts the constitution, it will go into effect immediately. The constitu tion is on the Regents' agenda for their next meeting.
