The committee, established last
spring to screen applicants for
sophomore, junior and senior mem
bers of Pub Board, is working to
get "the most responsible and in
terested" persons working on the J
board, she said.
All applicants for Pub Board will

these, the committee will select
V two from each class to come be

for final interviews. Any applicant
not nominated by the committee

Before the preliminary inter
views are held, the committee will
talk with past Pub Board student
members, with faculty members,
and with the editors and business
managers of the Nebraskan and
From these talks the committee
will try to determine the responsi

have done in the past. They will
try to set standards for the time

Board member to spend, and any
improvements suggested for the
system of selection.
After the election of the mem
bers, the committee will outline to
