It was estimated that over 7000 people, including .high echool groups from throughout the state, would attend , the show. The- overall winners of the E Week, competition and the winners of Engineers' Field Day will be announced at the Engineers' . Din ner Dance, 6:30 p.m. Friday at the lincoln Hotel. ...... The overall winner of E Week will be the department that has accumulated the most points during the two day program. The departments of the College "of "Engineering have beeh' playing softball games all week and the winner of ' the Friday afternoon game will be awarded a trophy. The Field Day includes many track and field events. Blueprint Keys will be presented to the outstanding Blueprint staff members Friday night and the out standing senior and freshman in Engineering will be recognized. The outstanding senior is selected on the , basis of his overall con tribution to the College of Engineer ing, whereas the freshman is chos en on scholarship alone. Sigma Tau, engineering honorary will pre sent the awards. Arnold Steckling, assistant at Chrysler proving grounds, will speak at the Engineers' Convoca tion in Love Library at 11 a.m. Engineer's Week originated 63 years ago and has become an an nual event. It is presented so that the public, alumni, students and incoming students may judge the worth of the Engineering College. The unusual displays include an electric chair that could apply half a million volts to a human being without harming the person.

It caused rubber balls to shatter like glass and mercury to become hard enough to pound nails. " Another attraction was the chance to send a message to a friend anywhere in the U.S. Ham radio operators relayed the mes sages to other hams over the coun try and they in turn phoned the note to the recipient Vithin min utes after being sent. Behind all the displays was the competition of the six engineering societies on campus. The societies were rated by five Judges who con sidered the merits of their dis plays. Judges were, professor of Ac counting Ray Dein; Lloyd Corp of Bankers Life Insurance; John Ol sson of Fulton and Cramer; T. C, fichewront of the Dept of Road and Irrigation, and John Campbell, president of Miller and Paine. Exhibits were considered on the basis of (1) did they portray an accurate picture of engineering to high school students and visitors (2) did they build good will for the College and (3) did they show in genuity and skill on the part of the students.

IFC stated that they were un der the control of the Board of Re gents and the Committee on Stu dent Affairs and were therefore exempt from the Council ruling. Panhellemc and. Union were in cluded in the dispute when it was found that they too were under control of the Student Affairs com mittee and the Regents. The entire matter was brought to the Council and was then turned over to the Judiciary Committee of the Council! j The Judiciary Committee ruled that IFC, Panhellenic and Union would be covered by the Council scholarship policy. . The resolution as passed by the Judiciary Committee follows: "In enforcing the Student Council scholarship policy requiring a 5.0 average for board members and a 5.7 for officers, the Judiciary Committee of the Council, acting SC Members Disagree ith Ruling All but one of the Student Coun cil members contacted by The Ne- braskan in regard to the decision by the Student Affairs Committee to limit Council jurisdiction op posed the decision. "This is the most exquisite job of placing the students in their po sition of utter submissiveness that I have ever seen," Mick Neff, junior council representative, said. "The Council has been stripped of their inner workings and al lowed only the outer walls, thus becoming, a Student. Council in name only," he continued. "Such a Council for the good of the students, would be better off to disband than to remain as a powerless puppet animated only by the strings of the Administra tion at the suggestions of an organ ization faculty advisor," Neff add ed. "I'd like to inquire as to just what the Student Council does have power over?" Bev Deepe, junior representative, said. "This appears to be a direct vio lation of Article II of the Student Council Constitution which states . . . 'The purposes of this organ ization shall be to act as the su preme student governing body in the regulation and coordination of all phases of student self-govern ment, " Don Beck, junior repre sentative, said. Junior council member Dot No votny said, "I feel that the deci sion was not in the best interests of the students as I definitely feel there should be a scholarship lim itation." . "Even though it puts the Coun cil in a bad light, it had to be done in view of circumstances," was the opinion of Dick Reische, junior member. "This makes the Council a group of people getting together Wednes days at 4 p.m. to drink tea," Marv Breslow, junior representative, said. "It is curious that the fac ulty is against any scholastic stan dards in activities, but it probably got in the way of their politics," he added. Faculty members of the Student Affairs Committee contacted by The Nebraskan refused to com ment on the decision.

According to J. P. Colbert, Dean of Student Affairs and chairman of the faculty committee on Stu dent Affairs, "The Council, as a whole, did not take action upon the ruling of its Judiciary Com mittee." "The Council then asked our committee to clarify two things (1) the status of authority of the Council over the three organiza tions in particular and (2) the gen eral authority of the Council over all campus organizations," C o 1 bert said. Colbert added, "The Committee Full Day: OnMl-Sports Day Show A full day of action packed events are slated for Saturday's annual All-Sports Day. Coach Tony Sharpe's baseball squad will lead off the festivities at 10 a.m. against Offutt Air Base of Omaha. In the second event of All Sports Day the Nebraska tennis team will try to break their losing streak when they meet Iowa State at 11. Varsity trackman will pit their skills against the freshman team starting at noon on the Stadium course. At 2 p.m. Varsity and Alumni football players take over in the Stadium in the main attraction of the day. There will be no re served seats for any of the events. Tickets may be purchased for $1 at Room 109 in the Coliseum. One ticket is good for all of the con tests. The University gymnastics team will present an exhibition in the Coliseum following the football game. There will be a swimming exhibition in the Coliseum pool at 5 p.m. Many of the alumni have been working out the past week and and most of them are expected at thn full scale practice which has been scheduled for today. Acording to Vic Schleich '42, who has appeared in every game since their origination in 1950, "once is all I'm going to get these old muscles sore this week end." Others are expected to join Schleich in watching Friday's prac tice but forty will be ready to go against the Varsity Saturday. ST' mm? lic display during the week. The displays can be viewed from 2 p.m, to 10 p.m. More than 5000 persons' are expected to view the engineering principles and practices which enter into every phase of modern-day living. Fea tured in the displays is a model of the proposed satellite which will be hurled into space next yeaj by the U.S. government. Mil klionSlaied n on Student Affairs discussed the problem and came to the conclu sion that in regard to overall juris diction of the Council, "The Stu dent Council '.has authority over campus activities of a general na ture but does not have authority over the internal affairs of indi vidual organizations." By "general nature" Colbert cited elections as an example of a general function over which the Council has jurisdiction. However, he said, our commit tee felt that the Council does not have the right to set up criteria for the selection of officers and board members of campus organ izations. "It must be remembered," Col bert said, "that the Council and the Committee on Student Affairs acts upon the constitutions of the various organizations." "As long as the organizations are not vio lating the requirements as set up in their constitutions, the Council has no authority," Colbert stated. "The Student Affairs committee is certainly interested in high schol arship," Colbert continued, but ri x hf.r ' r v' ti v- Top Rating Given Dick Fellman, editor of The Nebraskan last semester, headed the staff of the Nebraskan that won the AU-American rating. The ratings, compiled by the All-American: Paper Receives Top Ratiw The Nebraskan has received the Associate Collegiate Press All-American rating for the se mester ending February 1956. The top rating was given to six college newspapers of com parable enrollment that pub lished two or three times a week. Thirty college newspa pers were entered in this di vision. This is the third time in a decade that The Nebraskan has received the All-Americsa rating. The last time the pa per received the rating was in the spring of 1952, when Joan Kruger was editor. Prior to that, The Nebraskan received the rating in 1947. According to Fred Kildow, director of ACP, "All-American rating indicates a distinct ly superior achievement. Pa pers in each group were com pared with each other, and standards were set up by the newspapers themselves, after basic Guidebook considerations were taken into account." The newspaper Guidebook sets up critera that the news papers are judged by, includ ing, physical properties (typog raphy) and coverage. The judge was Gareth Heil bert, columnist and former city editor of the St. Paul Pi oneer Press and Dispatch. "The Nebraskan seems to be a pretty good model of a good college newspaper I It has per sonality and leads in opinions, whether or. not it . is always Club Endorses The Agricultural Economics Club endorsed the petitions in re gard to Clyde Mitchell. The latest results on the peti tions indicate that approximately 500 students have signed, roughly about one-half of the students en rolled in the College of Agricul ture. Ag Ec Club also voted that Mel Bellinger, club president, present the petitions to the proper author ities. Results on city campus are in complete and probably represent still feels that the Council cannot set up the qualifications upon which the organizations can select their officers. . "Also the Student Council can say that all Council representa tives must have a certain average, he said. In addition, "The Council can recommend to all organiza tions that they set up the require ments desired by the Council, Colbert said. Other action pending before the Committee on Student Affairs in cluded (1) student representation on the Student Affairs committee and the Library Committee and (2) the financial responsibilities of campus organizations. The Committee recessed until Thursday when these two matters will be discussed. Members of the faculty commit tee on Student Affairs in addition to Colbert are Robert Knoll, Hel en Snyder, Marjorie Johnston, H. L. Weaver, Elsie Jevons, Mrs. An gline Anderson, A. P. Bates, A. B. Ward, Irwin Hathoway, Mrs. Ruth Levinson, Miss Mabel Strong, L. E. Young and W. C. Harper. Associated Collegiate Press, are comparative ratings of all col lege newspapers which desire ratings. All-American , is the highest rating given. the accepted view is beside the point." he said. "You take a stand and stay with it. That is part of a news paper's job ... to stand up for what it believes is right," Hielbert continued. The coverage of student "life" was designated as "out standing." "All your editorials are strong in voice. Your edi torial page has variety, good unity, thoughtful commentary and humor. It has a lot of good reading," Hielbert said. In addition to the comment on the editorial page, The Ne braskan also rated well in typ ography, pictures, make-up and general news coverage. The is sues which were judged were , published during October, of 1955. Dick Fellman, Arts and Sci-' ence senior, was editor of the Nebraskan the fall semester. "I'm happy about the rating and proud of the staff. I al ways did feel that the staff did an excellent job throughout the semester and ran the paper on a professional level with com plete cooperation, although cer-' tainly not always agreement, on the many issues of the day," Fellman said. The fall semester staff in cluded; F e 1 1 m a n, editor; George Madsen, business man-; ager; Bruce Brugmann, editor ial page editor; Sam Jensen, managing editor, Fred Daly, news editor, and Bob Cook, " sports editor.
