It Happened At NU While conducting a tour for the second grade of Bancroft School through the offices of "The Nebraskan, Managing Editor Sam Jensen asked casually what the name of the paper was. Im mediately one of the small tots raised his hand and shouted out with confidence, "The Lincoln Star." the in Weather 'R Not The spring weather we have been enjoying is due to leave Nebraska Friday to make ay for considerably colder temperatures. The high is expected to reach only into the 20's. t'h'ts.l Vol. 59, No. 39 LINCOLN, NEBRASKA Friday, January 6, 1956 Council: Report Advises Tribunal A student tribunal with jurisdic tion over discipline, morals and scholarship was recommended for study to the Student Council Wednesday afternoon by Marvin Breslow, CCRC representative. Sam Van Pelt, John Fagan and Breslow brought back the recom mendation from the Big Seven 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 reported. 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 education. "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 University." 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 Room 313, Dottie Novotny, pub licity chairman, announced.

Breckenridge, said the letter nom inating him, came to the Univer sity in 1946 and has had a steady succession of positions in which he has served the University with a great degree of success. His career began here as a professor of political sc i ence; in 1955 he was named chairman of the depart me n t and made a fu 1 1 professor. He is now Dean Of Faculties.

The letter nominating Miss Clark stated that although she deserves recognition for her campus work, it is her friendliness and considera tion for nil the students on the campus which mark her as an ex ceptional person. Fraternities: 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 campuses. 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. Pi "Kappa Phi has discriminatory" restrictions in its 'ritual and Phi Delta Theta' is in the process of Calendar Acquires Additional Events Several additions have been made in the 1956 University Events Calendar. - They are Feb. 7, 9 and 14 Delta Sigma Rho speech contest.

Deadline for nominations in Jan. 18. The Nebraskan staff will select one student and one faculty mem ber for the title. 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.

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.
