The Daily Nebraskan will have to change its name
next fall.
The. new name will be The Nebraskan.
For, according to a decision reached Saturday by the
Board of Student Publications, the University's only
newspaper will be published three times a week.
The decision to cut out an
Jssue a week came as a result of
severe financial problems which
The Daily Nebraskan has faced
during the last year.
. The Board also cut staff sal
aries and eliminated two paid
editorial positions feature edi
tor and assistant sports editor.
According to estimates pre
sented to the Board, The Daily
Nebraskan will lose between
$1,500 and $2,500 this semester.
The cuts in salary, positions
end publishing schedule will
6ave $3,348 a semester.
After a loss of approximately
$3,500 first semester of thjs
year, the Board in January re
duced The Daily Nebraskan
from five to four issues a week,
eliminated two staff positions
and reduced salaries for an es
timated savings of $2,938 a sem
ester. The economy measures Sat
urday followed the Board's re
jection, by a vote of 4-3, of an
offer from the University ad
ministration to donate $2,000 to
The Daily Nebraskan next year
(1) if staff salaries were cut
at least 10 per cent and (2) if
the advertising revenue for the
first semester of the 1953-54
school year exceeded the cur
rent year's first semester rev
enue by $600. The offer was
available to The Daily Ne
braskan only if the seven-column
four-day-a-week sched
ule "was maintained.
The Board reportedly refused
the administration's offer be
cause: 1. The subsidy would be
available only for the 1953-54
school year.
2. Neither the $2,000 nor the
Increase In advertising revenue
could be incorporated into next
fall's budget, since the Board
would not know whether cither
would have been available until
3. According to the Board's
figures, The Daily Nebraskan
would have lost money next
semester at four issues a week,
despite the subsidy and the in
crease in advertising.
The Board, however, did
make an effort to increase ad
vertising revenue by cerating
two additional assistant busi
ness managers, making four in
stead of two.
Although their salaries will
$20 a month instead of the cur
rent $45 a month, the assistant
business managers will receiye
a 10 per cent commission on
all advertising sold, except for
national and contract advertis
ing. The Daily Nebraskan busi
ness staff had not previously re
ceived commissions.
Other economy measures en
acted at Saturday's meeting in
cluded: 1. Saving $2,528 a semester
by eliminating one issue a week.
(16 weeks at the $158-an-issue
it now costs for printing).
2. Eliminating the positions
of assistant sports editor (at $25
a month) and feature editor (at
$35 a month.) Salaries are paid
on a four month basis each
semester. This would save $240.
3. Reducing salaries of the
Editor from $85 to $65 a
Editorial Page Editor from
$55 to $45.
Managing Editor from $55 to
News Editor from $55 to
Sports Editor from $55 to
Copy Editor (four positions)
from $40 to $35.
Ag Editor from $35 to $20.
Business Manager from $80
to $60.
Circulation Manager from
$70 to $50.
This would save $540.
The reductions were recom
mended in a report from a Pub
lications B08rd sub-committee,
consisting of Dr. Nathan B.
Blumberg, assistant professor of
journalism, and Hile Goodrich,
senior student representative on
the Board.

Although the Board met
Thursday afternoon to receive
the sub-committee's report, it
adjourned until Saturday after
learning of the administration's
offer. The offer was not pre
sented in detail until Satur
day's meeting.
The administration's proposal
was first relayed to the Board
from Bruce H. Nicoll, adminis
trative assistant to the Chancel
lor, through Kenneth R. Keller,
adviser to The Daily Nebraskan.

chairman of the Board, end
William C. Harper, Board mem

and other administrative offi

The $2,000 offer resulted from
a meeting of three University
students with Chancellor R. G.
Gustavson and Nicoll. The stu
dents were Goodrich; Sally Hall,
managing editor of the Daily
Nebraskan, and Ken Rystrom,
editorial page editor of The
Daily Nebraskan.
The students did not repre

Board, or its sub-committee, or

Nicoll, however, told Board
members meeting with him Sat
urday morning that he had as

later reaffirmed this to the
Daily Nebraskan.
The students acquainted the
Chancellor and Nicoll with the

Graduate Council Presents Views
The matter of the Doctorate of
Education degree to be adminis
tered by the University's Teachers
College is now a closed issue as
the result of the Regent's meeting
C. Y. Thompson of West Point,
president of the University's
Board of Regents, . had indicated
earlier in the week that the de
gree, approved by the Board this
spring, would be brougnt up ior
discussion at the Regent's meeting
At the meeting, the Regents re-
fused to reconsider the Doctorate
of Education and 'felt that the
degree was logical and that the
matter should be dropped."
The discussion arose originally
When the Teachers college pre
sented a program of the Doctorate
of Education degree to tne uraau
ate Faculty for consideration. The
Graduate College stated that they
did not approve of the program.
The program was then appealed
to the Board of Regents. The
Board granted the Teachers Col
lege the right to give a Doctorate
degree but did not go on record as
to the program or requirements
to be followed and fulfilled.
Regents Decision
The Graduate Council, a com
mittee from the Graduate Fac
ulty, asked to appear before the
Board of Regents to give their
views on the degree and the pro
gram to be followed. As a result
of this hearing, the Board of Re
gents stated that the matter is
closed and that the program will
stand as it is presently.
Thompson said both sides of the
question had been discussed by
the Board. He said the discussion
Saturday on the newly-approved
education doctorate was rjnei.
Relations, said that he had "no
comment" on the issue and re
frained from making public his
stand on the issue.
Frank Henzlik. dean of the Uni
versity Teachers College, said that
the Doctorate of Education de
gree, under preparation for seven
years, was rejected by the coun
cil of the Graduate College three
times. The Graduate College, ac
cording to Henzlik, has refused to
administer the degrees on the
basis of three objections to the
degree. These concerned the ma
jor and minor field of study re
quirement for a doctor's degree,
the language requirements and
the practical as opposed to pure
research in the field.
Walter Militzer, dean of the
College of Arts and Sciences,
said, "The faculty of the College
of Arts and Sciences will certainly
abide by the decisions of the
Board of Regents in the matter of
the Doctorate of Education de
gree. The College is basically no
more mvoivea wnn xne uugiee
than ' the other colleges. The

at present, include:

Walter Wright, sophomore in
Business Administration and stu
dent member of the Publications
Board: "It seemed to me that it
was a matter of either cutting
back this year or next. If we had
waited until next year, the Pub
lications Board reserve fund
would have been completely de
pleted. So, it seems to me, that if
we cut now it would be possible
to revert back to a four or five
issue-a-week paper sometime in
tne luture.
"The main reason the cutback
has been made is because there
is no competition for the printing

Eleanor GnilHatt, Arts and Sci.
ences, sophomore: "The Daily Ne-

Hile Goodrich, graduating sen

Board: "It is a particularly un-
rortunate situation that a Univer
sity the size of Nebraska cannot
support a daily newspaper. How
ever, the Pub Board had little
choice in the matter since accent
ing the Administration offer of a
$2,000 grant would have meant
taking a gamble that advertising
revenue would increase $600 the
first semester.
But, as a member of the Board
and as one of three students who
discussed the financial difficul

like to express my personal grati

The committee consists of from
four to six faculty members se

sidered 25 faculty members for

committee of from four to six
Niles Barnard, chairman of the
liaison committee, said the faculty
group is ready "to go to work"
as soon as they receive a formal
invitation from the Regents. The
invitation came after the closed.
Regents meeting Saturday in the
form of a press statement out a
formal invitation is expected to
come Tuesday, Barnard said.
According to Barnard, the com
mittee members were chosen from
faculty members "who know the
University fairly well ... are
broad minded . . . and are familiar
with sources of chancellor ma
terial the country over."
The petition placed before the
Board of Regents resulted from
action taken by faculty members
who circulated petitions after
they had been informed "by au
thentic sources" that the Regents
might name Dr. George W. Rosen
lof as temporary or permanent
chancellor without consulting a
faculty committee. The Board had
scheduled the Saturday meeting
earlier "to consider a temporary
or permanent chancellor" and
only after the meeting was the
provision for an assisting faculty
committee announced.

Board of Regents by the faculty

The faculty group felt that in
view of the Regents' statement
calling the meeting for the pur

time the interests of the faculty
would not be represented and the
Regents would be acting in non
accordance to established pro

to three issues weekly would
necessarily mean 25 per cent less

should have one also!"
Marshall Kushner, junior in

View Paper Slice
Cutting the Daily Nebraskan to
three issues a week,, although re
gretted by faculty and Publica
tions Board members as well as
students, was felt to be absolute
economic necessity.
R. V. Shumate, professor of po
litical science and chairman of
the Board of Publications, ex
plained that the Board would like
to have a full-size five-day-a-
week paper, but the University
just can't support it. "It was a
hard choice to make," he said,
but I don't see how it would
be justified running a paper at
such a large deficit." The deficit,
the continued, was due to the de
cline in student enrollment and
the inadequacy of advertising
Other alternatives suggested
were an outright subsidy from the
University or an increase in stu
dent fees. "The $2,000 offer from
the University was not accepted
because the offer was contingent
and valid only if the advertising
revenue increased $1,200 next
year, which is not likely," Shu
mate said. "Even that subsidy
would not have wiped out the
deficit," he added, "for The Daily
Nebraskan has suffered a loss of
$5,000 to $6,000 this year." "I am
in favor of restoring the Daily
Nebraskan to a four-day publica
tion, however, if there is any pos
sible means," he said.
Chancellor R. G. Gustavson,
who promised to explore every
possible alternative, declared "I
am very much concerned about
it. "I think a fine, independent,
courageous student newspaper is
essential to a good University.
Whatever academic freedom may
mean to be faculty, the right of
the students to express themselves
is equally important. I don't want
to see the paper cut if there is
any way it can be avoided. A free
newspaper is a terribly essential
part of keeping the University
sound and democratic,' he said.
The Chancellor pointed out that
the main objection to a Univer-;
sity subsidy has usually been that
subsidies carry a certain amount
of control with them. Hoping to
keep the paper unrestricted, he
indicated that there might be a
possibility of making a grant
which has no strings attached.
Dr. Nathan B. Blumberg, as
sistant professor of journalism and
member of the Publications Board,
said, "We held off as long as pos
