Colbert Queried
About Tribunal
When interviewed by a Ne
Draskan reporter in regard to
the proposed student tribunal,
Dean of Student Affairs J. P.
Colbert said that there are
areas such as conduct and
scholarship in which students
couldn't and probably wouldn't
want to function.
He said he feels that it is
quite .possible for students to
"have a greater voice in stu
dent government and student
affairs if they would accept
the responsibility.
Breslow, one of three coun
cil members who attended a
Student Government con
ference recently, pointed out
that four schools, Iowa, Colo
rado, Kansas State and Okla
homa have successful student
governments "with extensive
powers including expulsion.
"In these schools the stu
dent tribunals hear appeals on
all matters of student disci
pline, including scholarship
and other student actions," he
Student Government Conference
held in Kansas City, Dec. 27 to 29
Kansas State, Oklahoma, Iowa
State and Colorado, Breslow's re
port said, all have student tri-
bunal systems that are composed
entirely of students, as at Colo-
rado, or of a student majority.
These bodies have at least ap
pellate Jurisdiction over all stu
dent matters from action taken
by their office of student affairs
Some have the power of original
jurisdiction, with students choosing
whether to go before the dean of
the tribunal for original discipline.
"One impression," Breslow's re-
port said, "that "we received has
remained most important in our
' concept of student government, is
that students, although they do not
have the power to act In all af
fairs, d-1 have the right to (fues-
tion and recommend on all mat
ters that concern their welfare and
"At Nebraska, in comparison
with our neighbor schools, we have
been given and have exercised a
minimum function in areas that
do concern our welfare and edu
cation. "Therefore, it is our recommen
dation that, at least in one area,
immediate action should be taken,
and that a committee be immed
iately appointed to consider and
bring proposals on the establish
ment of a student tribunal at the
Other matters discussed at the
conference, the delegates reported,
were student councils' activity
within the community and state,
parking problems and book pools.
Filings Open
To Freshmen
On Nebraskan
Freshmen and transfer stu
dents may apply for staff posi
tions on the Nebraskan and
Cornhusker, Marvin Breslow,
Pub Board member, told the Stu
dent Council in his report.
Although freshmen and trans
fer students do not have -credit
at the University, they may ap
ply for staff positions the Board
decided. Breslow said that the
Board also discussed its policies
on standards for applicants to
positions on the publications. In
terviews for the Nebraskan staff
will be Jan. 19.
The Pub Board authorized the
payment of $3500 to the Barnhart
Press as a partial payment for
the Cornhusker. Ken Keller gave
an oral and written report con
cerning the trip to the National
Intercollegiate Press Meeting.
A request by the Nebraskan
to be allowed to donate $100 to
the AUF in lieu of its customary
donation of a page was denied.
It was the opinion of the Board
that since the Nebraskan was
subsidized by a tax on all stu
dents, the Board should not auth
orize donations, Breslow said.
Builders Interviews
Interviews for Builders board
positions will be held Saturday
from 9 a.m. to late afternoon in

Prejudice Debate
Skips University
Debate over fraternity discrim
ination clauses, now being d i s
cussed on many of the nation's
campuses, has apparently not yet
affected the University, a Lincoln
Journal story said Thursday.
Frank Hallgren, Associate Dean
for Men, said the University has
no policy governing the restric
tive clauses of social organizations.
Student Council, however has a
constitutional clause forbidding
discriminatory practices by hon
oraries and other organizations un
der its jurisdiction, he said.
No formal complaint against fra
ternity discrimination has been
lodged since the arrival of Chan
cellor Clifford Hardin.
A legal basis for outlawing fra
ternity discrimination clauses is
found in the 1954 Supreme Court
ruling assuring public institutions
the right to define the policies that
govern fraternal groups on their
Recent publications have stated
that Sigma Phi Epsilon, Sigma
Nu, Sigma Chi, Kappa Sigma and
Theta Chi h a T e discrimination
clauses. Acacia, a college Masonic
fraternity, has certain religious
requirements in its constitution,
according to the story.

eliminating their discriminatory re
strictions through convention
amendments, the story said.
The principal argument used by
those favoring elimination of dis
criminatory clauses in national fra
ternal constitutions is that local
chapters are not allowed to choose
their own membership, according
to the Lincoln paper.
Undergraduate polls, taken by
Elmo Roper, indicate that racial
and religious restrictions' would
disappear if the matter were left
to the discretion of local chapters,
the story reported.

Pilot Course
To Explain
Library Use
Bernard Kreisman, Asistant Di
rector of the Library for Humani
ties, announced Thursday that in
answer to student requests and an
article in the Nebraskan by Mari
anne Hansen, the University will
offer a pilot course in the use of
the library and card system either
next semester or next fall.
The course. will be supplemented
by an instructional handbook
compiled by the library. The pur
pose of the course will be to ascer
tain which department could most
easily prepare to teach it in prep
aration for making it a regularly
scheduled part of the curriculum.
"The course will fill a need
which has long been apparent,"
said Kreissman. Many students are
completely lost when it comes to
finding something in the library,
while many others have only a rud
imentary knowledge of the use of
the Dewey system of cataloging. It
is for these people the course will
be specifically designed, he ex
plained. NUs Council
