a report within
three weeks and if the Council did
not return a report recommend
ing the abolition of the policy, it
would consider eliminating A.W.S.,
Student Council, Kosmet Klub
and Corn Cobs from the list of ac
tivities. Gail Katskee, senior hold
over member, is chairman of the
Activities Committee.
Concerning the proposed migra
tion to Missouri, the report by
the migration committee listed no
choice of destination. The two
places under consideration were
Iowa State and Missouri. Dick
Riesche, chairman of the commit
tee and IFC representative said
that due to the many conflicts the
committee did not offer a regular
committee report.
Reische said that since AWS
had voted to give women a free
week end on the week end of the
Iowa State Game and the band
and cheerleaders would travel to
Ames, it would create many prob
lems to endorse a ' migration to
Missouri even though the majority
of the student body would prefer
a trip to Columbia.
Coach Bill Glassford would like
student support at both games
Reische said, but he would prefer
a larger attendance at Missouri
Reische also reported that the
band had an obligation to go to
Iowa State.
Marvin Breslow, CCRC Repre
sentative, moved that the Council
endorse and publicize an unoffi
cial migration to Missouri. Follow
ing a positive voice vote, a divi
sion of the house was called for
and the motion lost,
Sam Van Pelt, Business Admin
istration representative, moved
that the motion made by Dick
Johnson, Builders' representative
at last week's Council meeting be
removed from the table. Johnson's
motion was to abolish the present
Council policy of limiting leader
ship in activities:
Last year's Council approved the
plan on March 23, but the policy
did not go into effect until the
first week of school of the present
During course of discussion on
the main motion, Bernie Wisnow
senior holdover member, asked for
a ruling on a point of order that

motion can not be rescinded. He
Effect Of Rule
On Activities
The Student Council ruling con
cerning limitation of activities now
under discussion was passed after
considerable debate March 23 by
last year's Council.
The ruling contains a number
of provisions aimed at controlling
domination pf campus leadership
be a few students. An individual
cannot attain board status in more
than two organizations and cannot
be president of n.ore than one or
ganization. The ruling was introduced to the
council by Muriel Pickett, a Mor
tar Board and former president of
Builders. Miss rickett headed a
committee which made an exten
sive study of campus activities up
on Council request.
The ruling was passed in a
lengthy- Council session by a vote
of 20 to 9. A group of senior men
was unsuccessful in lobbying
against the proposal.
Membership in the following or
ganizations was affected:
CCRC, Ag and City YWCA, AWS,
Coed Counselors, Nebraskan,
ers, Red Cross, Union (board and
committee chairmen), WAA, IFC,
cil, Women's Dorm Cpuncil and- Inter-Co-Op
Any person found in violation of
the policy would be required to
drop the last acquired position.
It would be necessary for
board member (or a person of
equal status) to have a 5.0 cumu
lative average and an officer
would be required to have a 5.7
cumulative average.

The Outside World:
Staff Writer
The wreckage of a United Airlines plane carrying 64 passengers, in
eluding 19 who boarded at Omaha, was sighted on Medicine Bow Moun
tain in Wvnminfr. There was no sign of any survivors.
The accident was termed the worst commercial airliner crash in
the nation's history. Lt. Col. E. R. Weed of the Wyoming Air National
Guard said the four-engined aircraft apparently had plowed into the
12,005 foot high mountain and then had slid down its rocky east face.
Of the 19 passengers that boarded at Omaha, nine were transfers
from Braniff airlines. Eight of the persons were military personnel,
'believed to be inductees. United Airlines officials in Omaha said it was
not yet known how many of the persons boarding the plane at Omaha
were from this area.
Robert Johnson, vice-president of United Airlines reported that
until Thursday, United had flown more than four years and almost 12.5
billion miles without a passenger fatality.
The Latter-Day Saints Church in Salt Lake City reported that
several members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir returning from
Europe were aboard the plane. The choir completed a European con
cert tour last month.
Faure Fires Critics
Although fighting still continues in eastern French Morocco, white
flags went up Thursday over several small villages in the Mid-Atlas
'Mountains and along the Spanish Moroccan frontier. In spite' of the
evidence that some rebel tribesmen are ready to surrender, French
officers were not optimistic that all the trouble was ending.
The political situation is now causing trouble in Morocco as well
as in France. In France, four critics of Premier Edgar Faure were
fired including Defense Minister Pierre Koenig. These dismissals
caused speculation whether the Cabinet could survive the break.
To add to the troubles of the French, Moroccan rebels continued
to hold important positions in the surrounding mountains.
Contract Awarded
The contract to begin work on a small artificial earth satellite to
penetrate into far space has been awarded to a firm in Baltimore,
Md., according to reports from the Defense Department. The satellite
U due to be launched sometime in 1957-58.
A-Plant Considered
A staff recommendation to build ar atomic power plant in Ne
braska is being considered now by the Atomic Energy Commission.
The proposal was made by the Consumers Public Power District of
Columbus. There was no indication as to what the decision of the
Commission would be.
Senate Drops Plan
Members of a Senate subcommittee have dropped their plans to
conduct public hearings on freedom of religion. The chairman of the
committee, announced that it would proceed to the writing of a report
based on replies to a widely circulated questionnaire sent out by sub
committee staff aides.
Protests against conducting public hearings had been made by
Catholic, Protestant and Jewish church leaders.
made reference to Roberts' Rules
of Order, page 169. The Council
follows Roberts' Rules according
to the Council Constitution.
President Andy Hove ruled that
this point was not germane to the
main motion under consideration.
Breslow then moved that the mo
tion be referred to a committee
which would be appointed by the
executive committee and would
consist of no fewer than five mem
bers and would have two senior
members in attendance.
An amendment to the motion
was offered by Johnson instruct
ing the committee to consider cer
tain organizations for elimination
from the policy if the committee
did not return a report favoring
abolition of the policy. This amend
ment passed.
Miss Katskee moved that the
motion be amended and the policy
be referred to the already exist
ing Council committee on Student
Activity. The move was ap
John Fagan, Engineering repre
sentative, moved that the motion
be amended to read that the com
mittee return a report with three
weeks from the time of passing
Breslow accepted this amendment
to his original motion.
The main motion was then
brought to a vote and the motion
carried. Wisnow suggested that the
committee submit majority and
minority reports when the report
is due Oct. 26.
Miss Kastkee announced that
the meeting of the Student Activi
ties committee would be held Mon
day at 1 p.m.
During the disucssion of the main
motion and the amendments, the
following comments were made
John Fagan Kosmet Klub and
Cobs are both being hurt by the
policy. . . an organizaiton cannot
exist without workers.
Miss Katskee The trouble
with some of the organizations that
are being hurt is "internal" and
not connected with the Council
policy. . . it should be the job
of the organization's officers to ac
quire workers. The reasons for the
policy are to spread the activity
offices around, to enable more peo
ple to fill offices and to spread
leadership responsibility.
Reische Some of these organi
zations don't require any great
amount of time.
Don Beck, Corn Cobs represen
tative There is no reason for
this policy ... as representatives
of the students, we should decide
now. . . we have more important

Students Give
Year's Report
Of Pub Board
Student members of the Board
of Student Publications submitted
their summary report for 1954-55
to the Student Council Wednesday.
Included in this report was a
statement of financial status, a list
ing of most significant accomplish
ments and three recommendations.
It was reported that as of June
30, the Cornhusker had made a
profit of $1,545.07 with $255.00 in
outstanding reports as of Sept. 17.
A profit of $4,505.88 as of June 30
was listed for the Nebraskan with
$599.90 in outstanding accounts as
of Sept. 12.
Considered one of the most sig
nificant accomplishments was a di
rective defining the lines of author
ity and responsibility and specific
regulations for the Nebraskan.
Another was the altering of the
Nebraskan commission plan so as
to give full commission on local
advertising. Additional color in the
Cornhusker was listed as the
third of the most significant accom
plishments of the Student Publica
tions Board.
Submitted as the first recommen
dation was that there be more con
tinuity in student membership and
the duties Of members be more
clearly defined. Second on the
list of recommendations was that
student members be aware of any
news controls upon student publi
The final recommendation in the
report- submitted by Shirley Ros
enberg Rochman and Marvin Bre
slow was recommended by Mrs.
Rochman and not concurred in by
Breslow. This was that it is felt
that the responsibilities of the
Board of Student Publication are
such that it is too much power to
be exercised byso few people.

editor of the New York Times,
