Pub Board:
The Board of Student Publica
tions voted Monday to postpone
discussion until a later meeting
of a proposal of Sam Jensen, edi
tor of The Nebraskan, to make
further meetings of the Commit
tee on Student Affairs open to
the public and the press.
Because of the lateness of the
hour it was decided to wait until
the next meeting of the commit
tee, Dec. 17, in order to insure
"time for thoughtful discussion",
In his proposal, Jensen stated
that since the Committee on Stu
dent Affairs considered matters
of vital concern to students, the
affairs of that committee ought
to be known to them.
He. pointed out tjhat the commit
tee was appointed by the Board
of Regents and consequently was
of a permanent nature, it occu
pied a sightly different position
than the temporary committees.
In view of this, "The Nebraskan
feels that members of the press
as well as other students ought to
be able to attend the meetings of
this committee", Jensen said.
In reply to questions from the
Board, Jensen explained that he
was referring to the discussion
portions of the meetings, that the
committee should continue to hold
executive sessions when voting,
After this, the Board voted to
go into closed session, at which
time the motion to postpone dis
cussion was passed.

Heartened by the large amount
of outstate support, for the Uni
versity budget hike, Chancellor
Clifford Hardin said Friday he
was very optimistic "at this
point" on approval cf the entire
(5,500,000 increase.
Addressing approximately 30
University students, at the weekly
Rag luncheon last Friday, the
Chancellor said continued support
from newspapers and other organ
izations could be the Lever deter

Governor Victor Anderson, who
makes his budget recommenda
tions to the state legislature Jan,
10, has said he favors a NU budg
et hike but not the "entire increase.
The University has received the
support of Nebraska newspapers
through editorials, chamber of
commerces, and the Nebraska
Alumni Association, Dr. Hardin
Although a staunch supporter of
the University, the Governor feels
approval of the budget would put
an unfair tax burden on those per
sons who received no income be
cause of the drouth the past two
years, the Chancellor said
Outstate support showing the
governor that the people do ap
prove of the budget increase
Tassels Vote
In a closed meeting Monday,
Tassels, University women's pep
organization, voted on an amend
ment to their constitution con
cerning the election of Home
coming Queens. Shirley McPeck,
Tassels president, stated that
the amendment would not be re
leased until read at Wednesday's
Student Council meeting.
could be the determining faetor
for approval of the entire budget,
vr. Hardin added.
University relations with the
governor have been "very good"
concerning the budget, said the
Chancellor, adding, "and they will
remain that way."
The Chancellor said the Uni
versity was asking for an un
precedented increase to meet an
unprecented situation.
He said he didn't advise stu
dents "marching on the CaDitol"
but said sending letters and in
formation on the budget to the
parents and folks back home as
suggested by one student attend
ing the luncheon could certainly
provide "welcome support."
Stressing the seriousness of the
faculty salary problem, the Chan
cellor said seven key men, with
the rank of associate professor or
above, had been offered jobs by
other Universities within the past
13 days. "One left with an in
crease in salary of $3,500," Har
din said.
Two years ago salaries at Ne
braska were second from the top
in Big Seven schools, Hardin
said, but now NU ranks fifth or
sixth. However he said the Uni
versity was more worried about
recruiting raids" from Big 10,
East Coast and West Coast
schools. "We don't have to match
their offers, but a compromise
is necessary."
Nearly half of the budget in
crease, (2,484,292 deals with the
salary problem, affecting both the
teacher and labor force at the

Climbing enrollment may mean
turning down prospective student:
because of lack of facilities, the
Chancellor said, naming another
reason for the budget hike.
With an expected enrollment of
10,000 by the fall of 1959, the
Chancellor said we must hire
about 75 teachers to give NU stu
dents the kind of education they
deserve. The University has ab
sorbed about 1,500 students the
past three years with no appre
ciable teacher increase, the Chan
cellor said, and some departments
have increased their enrollment
by as much as 50 percent

Harold "Wally" Rathjen, 18, a

Franklin County Sheriff Albert

Egyptians Math
Egyptian underground fighters in Port Said attacked an eight-man
British patrol early Monday with hand grenades and machine guns,
injuring one soldier. Seven Egyptians were arrfsted. It was the first
jutbreak of anti-British sentiment in the city, but authorities feared
;here would be more as the Anglo-French stepped up their evacuation
3f the city.
Dulles' Meetings
Secretary of State Dulles planned separate meetings Monday with
French Foreign Minister Pineau and British Foreign Secretary
Lloyd in his first major step to reknit the Atlantic Alliance torn
by the invasion of Egypt. Dulles said it was the United States' "firm
purpose" to find! a way to negotiate past discords.
Clinton High School's 700 students
grated classes Monday under the watchful eyes of city police, sheriff's
officers and FBI agents. Police said they expected no trouble tat

at the University Medical Center
in Omaha is a third reason for
the hike, he said.
The Chancellor said recently two
wards at the University Hospital
were closed, removing 34 badly
needed beds from use by Nebraska
indigents at the only state hospi
tal in Nebraska providing them
medical-surgical care.
Rising operating costs, competi
tion for the services of medical
doctors, nurses and medical tech
nicians makes the entire request
for the Omaha branch of the Uni
versity a budget "must" he said.
Of the $1,100,000 increase asked
for the Hospital half would go for
the student nurse program. At
present, Dr. Hardin said, due to
personnel shortages, many student
nurses must handle wards, in
stead of being in classes.
On another reason for the in
crease, some $1,170,000 budgeted
for activities in the field of agri
culture, the Chancellor said, "If
anybody does anything about the
drouth, who will it be but the Uni
versity?" referring to NU's re
search program.
A necessary building program
adding to the costs of maintaining
classrooms and .laboratories and
the many other services necessary
to support the teaching endeavor,
was a fifth and final reason listed
by the Chancellor on why the en
tire budget increase must be met.
