W r3 U DOfO DuET n ST L1 g 1 9 Vol. 56, No. LINCOLN, NEBRASKA Friday, October 7, 1955 Activity Rule To Committee: Council Hefeofs M of ion f 'Pvlissduri CllicaFafion By SAM JENSEN Managing Editor A Missouri migration was ruled out Wednesday in Student Coun cil meeting as a motion to en dorse an unofficial migration to Columbia was given a negative vote. ff' In o t h e r - Council action, the proposal f f to abolish the "( - Council's pol- . '4 icy of limiting , W leadership re sponsibi lit y" was referred to the Student Activi ties commi t t e e with instruc tions to return Sunday Journal and Star Miss Katskee 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 semester. During course of discussion on the main motion, Bernie Wisnow senior holdover member, asked for a ruling on a point of order that once an action had been taken, a motion can not be rescinded. He Effect Of Rule On Activities Summarized 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, NUCWA, Ag YMCA, RAM Coun cil, Women's Dorm Cpuncil and- Inter-Co-Op Council. 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 Dean of Student Affairs' of fice would notify the Council of violations. A standing committee of the Council would handle viola tions. Enforcement would be carried out through Council removal of of ficers from unsanctioned positions and the power of the Council to re voke constitutions of organizations Because the ruling affected many influential campus organiza tions, a great deal of controversy was caused before and alter its passage. Those in favor of abandoning the nrooosal felt that it would need lessly limit capable individuals, Hpnrive students of the right to think for themselves and also Hpnrive camDUs organizations pf the most capable leadership. The Outside World: Wmhum ShjluCU By BARB SHARP 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 proved. 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 business. In other Council business, An thony Van Dijk, World University Service representative, and Tom Gable, University Health Service, addressed the Council. The Council also discussed the possibility of holding a mock po litical convention next year. Zebe Plans Incur Hitch: No Singer "Without A Singer" was the theme of the ZBT fraternity Wednesday.

' 7943 Pulitzer Prize Winner To Discuss 'War, Politics And Atoms' Wednesday 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 cations. 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.

That year, however, RCA Victor was looking for someone who could turn out instrumental sides with a strong dance beat and thus generate a new interest in dance music. During his first eighteen months with Victor, Flanagan cut over 80 sides and n Rodgers and Ham merstein album which became the top pop albuni for the year. Until March of 1950 the Flana gan band was strictly a studio re cording band.
