Now that the student body has had a chance
to have its say about Sunday social events, let's
look over the idea again.
Present rules treat Sundays this way:
"Dances, card parties and organisation ban
quets may not be held on Sunday . . . Sunday
night sappers which are planned by the Moth
er's Club of the rroup or the alumni may be
held only during- the supper hour . .
The administration had reason to think last
year that there might be some student opinion
toward an extension of these requirements. Since
University officials were not disposed to plunge
into a general upheaval of existing rules, the sub
committee on social affairs (a sub-committee of
the general faculty committee on student affairs)
was commissioned to make a study of the situa
tion. The sub-committee, under the able leader
ship of Miss Marjorie Johnston, Dean of Women,
decided to make this study from two points: 1)
the situation on other campuses and 2) student
expression here of the need for a change.
A comprehensive questionaire was sent to stu
dent affairs offices of several of our more im
portant neighboring schools and the results showed
that our campus is very much in line with what
is going on elsewhere.
But Miss Johnston's committee was not satis
fied with this knowledge alone. Committee mem
bers felt that the student's opinion should be
discovered also. So a letter was sent to organized
houses Greek and independent asking that the
Sunday situation be discussed and that the re
sults of that discussion be sent back to the com
mittee. Generally, students weer asked if there
is a demand for Sunday events. Very sketchy
returns seem to indicate that such interest is
very low if existent In the first place, all stu
dent( organizations have not even taken advan
tage of this chance to present opinion.
What the committee will do with its infor
mation remains to be seen but some conclusions
seem to be obvious. If there is no great move
ment on the campus to hold social events of an
organized scale on Sunday, it seems wrong that
the social rules should prohibit such events. A
negative rule, such as we have now, seems to in
dicate that the demand is there and the Univer
sity is holding that demand back.
Some persons have argued that it is wrong
to hold organized parties on Sundays for religious
reasons. I sincerely believe that these persons
have a right to their opinion, however I do not
feel that removing the restrictions against card
parties and dancing is opening the way to mass
Sunday brawls. Organizations would Still have
the right to decide when such events would be
held. If certain members felt that Sunday was
the wrong time, those members could make their
feelings known to their own group.
I do not think that those individuals have
much basis . for arguing against making it possi
ble for such organizations as wish to hold Sun
day parties to have them. In other words, the
final decision is up to the organization and in
dividual thought has a chance to dictate to each
group. The fact that different religions desig- resulting

dancing were lifted from the Sunday scene. I
don't honestly see' how any thinking organization
could schedule a big dance for Sunday if the
women's closing hours remain at 10:30 p.m. And
I don't think that it would be a good idea to
change those hours there ought to be one night
in a weekend when students (male and female)
have a chance to study without the temptation of
late dating. Furthermore, there doesn't seem to
be any great movement on campus to hold such
events on Sundays anyway. Other campuses
have also found this to be true.
I feel, therefore, that the administration should
strike these restrictions from the Sunday rules.

We Meed Library Time
When a university has as excellent a library as
the University of Nebraska, every effort should
be made to make its facilities available to stu
dents during as many hours as possible.
But, comparing library hours at the University
with those at other colleges, one observes the
1. Most college libraries are open from 85 to
90 hours a week, according to Director of Li
braries Frank A. Lundy. Love Memorial Library
is open 75 hours.
2. Although most college libraries close at
10 p.m. or later (at midnight at the University of
Iowa and Oklahoma A&M) on week days, li
brarians start shooing students out of Love Li
brary shortly after 9 p.m. Monday through Thurs
day and before 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
3. Many college libraries are open sometime
on Sunday, if not during the afternoon and eve
ning. But Love Library closes its doors on Sat
urday afternoon, not to open them again until
These are the facts concerning our University

lack of funds. Money is simply not available
to pay salaries and other expenses involved in
opening the largest building on campus for any
Although the demand for longer hours has
existed for several years with no results there
is new hope for additional hours of library serv
ice, according to Lundy.
That hope rests with the budget request sub
mitted by the University to the Unicameral.
Lundy estimated that from $6,000 to $7,500 in the
proposed budget would go toward obtaining ad
ditional library services during a single year.
The result, he suggested, might mean opening the
library on Sunday afternoons and evenings.
Six thousand dollars a year is a great deal of
money to pay for perhaps seven hours of library
service a week. If this were the sole result, that
would mean, discounting holidays, a cost of ap
proximately $150 a Sundaynot including Janitor
ial service and other expenses involved in operat
ing the building.
Is the additional service worth the cost? Ex-

Graduate students have frequently requested li

afternoons during football season, according to
Robert W. Goss, dean of the Graduate College.
(The library closes at noon on football days.)
Graduate students in the School of Social Work,
according to Student Association President Phil
Hain, particularly rely on long library hours. JEXAS A&M
Most social work students, he said, desire a io ja
p.m. closing hour as well as library time on Sun
days, particularly Sunday night. Required talks
and out-of-town trips, he said, prevent students
from using the library with its present hours to
the fullest advantage.

deadline "absurd" and said he has "never been
able to swallow objections to opening the 'ibrary
on Sunday." He was particularly concerned about
students who work or participate in campus ac
tivities during the afternoons. Breckenridge
pointed out that upperclassmen and graduate stu
dents in his department practically live in the
library. For that reason, he said, they need ex
tended service hours.
He suggested shoving the week-day closing
hour to 10 p.m. and opening the library from 2
to 6 p.m. Sunday.
Several students and faculty members pointed
out that for students who work in the afternoons
the library offers no more than two hours of
study time four days a week. Obviously, this
limitation seriously handicaps these students
particularly those with a house meeting or a night
class or two each week.
From the dificulties presented above, it ap
pears necessary in all fairness to busy University
students, to extend the hours of the library.
Neither the state nor the University should al
low a matter of $6,000 to stand in the way of
enabling students to obtain maximum use of the
library. If there is a demand, as there seems to
be, for additional hours, the Unicameral must not
