. 4& It If . n Tfl "iggest Budigef NU 8 Million Dolldr Request Goes To Legislature Floor For Approval The biggest budget in the Uni versitv's history nearly 36 mil lion dollars was approved by the Legislature Budget Committee for the 1953-55 biennium. Eight million above the budget for the current biennium, which ends June 20, the figure oi $d5,. 961,000 now goes to the Legist ture for .approval. This budget consists of a $15 million appropriation, which is $2.5 million increase in the gen eral fund (tax money); $1.5 mil lion in the next two years from the one-fourth mill property tax levy for expansion of the Univer sity College of Medicine at Omaha; cash funds such as tui tion fees, $13,385,000; federal funds, $1,622,600; and the Univer sity's share of the 1.1 mill insti tional building fund state levy, $3,250,000. The remainder of the University s income consists of money appropriated, but not spent for the laoi-oa biennium, now reappropriated by the committee, Although $1.3 million less than the University asked, the $15 mil lion appropriated represents a compromise between the $16.3 million the University asked and the $14.5 million Gov. Robert Crosby recommended. Paul Grimm To Receive Marine Award Paul E. Grimm, senior in Bus! ress Administration and NROTC student, is the recipient of the 3 953 Marine Corps Award of Merit.

Meeting For International Students Set A panel discussion will be held in the Faculty Lounge of the Un ion Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. to dis cuss the needs of the international students on the campus. International students will take part in the discussion which has been organized by the YWCA and the YMCA. The purpose of the panel is to find out what should be done to coordinate the activities of the international students on the Uni versity campus. Dottie Sears, YWCA member,'. "' rtV said they hope to "eliminate the 1 constant overlapping of various! Two more holes in his head and existing organizations" that have hed' look like a Buick. international students in mcir However, Chancellor Gustavson said the Budget Committee's rec ommendation is "firm evidence the committee has a clear under standing of the University's prob lem." "I am certain the committee's action represents a realistic com promise between what should be and what can be done. . In all my experience I have never seen a legislative committee show more genuine interest in the prob lems oi higher education or mani fest more clearly a desire for real progress than has this 1953 com mittee." Chancellor Gustavson said the $15 million appropriation will "insure the healthy operation of the university at its present level for another two years and will permit modest reinforcement in several areas, especially in medi cal training and agricultural re search." He explained that about $14.8 million of the $15 million would be needed to operate University programs for another two years at their present performance level. The $2.3 million above the 1951- 53 appropriation will go for sal ary increases and also cover the increased cost of equipment, sup plies and books because of the in flationary spiral. The other $200,000 will go to these principal purposes: 1. Strengthening the , teaching program at the College of Medi cine in Omaha. 2. Increasing research in the areas of animal diseases and soil problems. 3. Reinforcing general Univer sity teaching and service pro grams, including the building of a teacher-training program in special education to serve handi capped children and the purchase of books for the University libraries. Sen. Arthur Carmody of Tren ton, chairman of the committee, said the figure arrived at was a compromise. "We on the committee hoped there would be limited salary in creases at the University and that there would be a great stride for ward at the College of Medicine," sen. t-armody said. Sen. Carmody pointed out that the University as a whole got a 20 per cent increase. He said that he was assured by University officials that the medical school would get a 30 per cent increase. Gov. Crosby in his budget had recommended that the increase go to the medical school and agri cultural colleges, -he emphasized we leit that the salary in creases were probably too ereat." he said, "but we couldn't shake (the University officials) from considering these first." The University also wanted to hire more full-time teachers at the College of Medicine, Sen. Car mody said. "They'll have ample iunos to do that," he asserted I l.lj 11 Voice ol a Gnat Midwestern VuivtsilT VOL. 52 No. 127 LINCOLN, NEBRASKA Tuesday, May 12, 1953 Presiding At Ivy Day 1:1 rrfylti .. : Sb, , " 7u A - M Mill -SMI0KX,' 1 To IBs)ni5iu3i" Hloinioir yysfsiv Union Office, House Representatives To Sell Tickets For May 20 Dinner MAY QUEEN FOR 1953 Courtesy Lincoln Journal Julie Johnson, crowned May Queen at the 52nd annual Ivy Day ceremonies, is shown here as cending: to her throne from which she reigned over the festivi ties last Saturday. Julie Johnson Reigns At Ivy Day Ceremony Billoni By BILL DEVRIES Staff Writer Today we are going to have . a short course in humor or maybe sarcasm or something. In every crowd, there is always a wise guy who delights in throwing out cutting remarks, or having a good time at your expense. Well, going back to the old addage "he who laughs last laughs best," you should always be prepared with a smashing comeback to put the heckler in his place. However, if you are like me, you probably just don't have a good comeback on the tip of your tongue at the proper instant, and are forced to take the brunt of the joke. With this in mind, I have as sembled a few choice retorts to quiet "the life of the party." Oh brother, if birth control could only be made retroactive. Everytime I think about your brain I realize it's the little things in life that count. I thought the circus was In wln- membershin, A number of the groups and Dr. Rosenlof have endorsed the plan. The organizations invited to participate include campus and Lincoln groups. Following the panel discussion, the participants will break up into small groups to talk over different Viewpoints.

U Journalists Protest National Fraternity Action Abandonment of a proposed Survey of the 1952 presidential campaign by a special committee ol Sigma Delta Chi brought a strongly-worded resolution from tha. University of Nebraska chap ter of the national professional Jpurnalistic fraternity. The resolution states that the action of the special committee is "distinctly lacking in courage, im agination and that rare quality, common sense, that is so neces sary for Journalism in ,a Western democracy." , Plans to survey the fairness of press, magazine, radio and tele vision coverage of the campaign were originally expressed in a resolution approved by the 1952 convention of Sigma Delta Chi In Denver, Colo., last fall. The report o the committee named to explore the possibilities of such a survey stated that the survey "is not feasible." The University of Nebraska chapter approved its opposition of the resolution by a unanimous vote nnd forwarded the resolution to the Chicago ofiico of Lee Hills, national president the fraternity. The JNebrasKa resolution wem to say that "such a survey An ghnnlH ha unrWtaWpn in maintain if not restore confidence in the integrity of the press . . The -resolution states: whereas The 63rd conven tion of Sigma Delta Chi directed in Resolution Number One of Vin KnnunnHnn thnt a romnre- henslve survey of news coverage, in the 1952 presidential campaign be undertaken by a special com-: mittee or the iratcrnuy ana WHEREAS It has been a cart of the tradition of the American press to strive if not to achieve a anal of objective and fair re porting and coverage, and WHEREAS me American people deserve a reason for con tinuing faith that the press is attempting to perform that serv ice of objective and fair coverage and reporting, particularly of sig nificant and controversial events and topics BE IT THEREFORE RE SOLVED THAT The University of Nebraska Chapter of Sigma Delta Chi considers the abandon ment of the proposed survey of news coverage in the 1952 presi dential campaign by a special committee of the fraternity dis tinctly lacking In courage, imagin ation and that rare quality, com mon sense, that is so necessary for contemporary Journalism in a Western democracy THAT The chapter regards the "excuse" that a survey "Is not feasible" little short of a dodge to refrain from doing something that may prove to be an un pleasant task and THAT The University of Ne braska chapter believes that the negative action taken by the special committee involved comes dangerously close to an admission that "fairness" and "objectivity" in news columns are relative ex pressions and thus have no uni versal application since they can not be measured which in turn would leave every editor free to determine for himself what these terms shall mean in his news columns with no trouble from his conscience. BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT The University of Ne braska chapter of Sigma Delta Chi believes such a survey of news coverage a necessary action if the American press is to maintain standard of self-criticism and . . . THAT The chapter believes such a survey should be under taken to maintain if not restore confidence in the integrity of the press and THAT The chapter is of the opinion that where no method ology exists, some should nnd can be created that would be satis factory for the purposes intended in Resolution Number One of the 53rd convention of the fraternity and THAT The University of Ne braska chapter of Sigma Relta Chi hereby respectfully encourages the national president to appoint a new committee, with member ship not necessarily confined to the ranks of the working press, to carry out the expressed wishes of the 53rd convention of the fraternity.
