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.

However, if you are like me,

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,

WHEREAS me American

SOLVED THAT The University

Delta Chi considers the abandon

dangerously close to an admission
that "fairness" and "objectivity"
