j t if t n n n n o n t t .t- -1- t 31, No. 32 Pub Board: Meeting, Proposal Delaved 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. Mortar Board " Hikes Average Mortar Board average has been raised this year from 6.2 to 6.3. The change was made because ne of the stipulations of a Mor tar Board is to be outstanding in scholarship and the previous fig ure was thought to be unsatis factory, according to Linda Buth- man, publicity chairman.

Local Backing May Sway Governor 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 mining approval of the entire budget. 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 stated. 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 University. Forensic Honors: Debaters Win Women's 4 Division, Sweepstakes The University this weekend captured the sweepstakes award for the best overall record at the oldest debate and discussion tour nament in the United States. Forty-four- colleges and univer sities took part in the tournament held by Southwestern College, Win- field, Kan. The four University debate teams won 19 of their 24 debates. Nancy Copeland and Sara Jones won eight straight debates to take me first place in the women's division of the conference. Bar bara Bacon and Sandra Reimers were, eliminated in the quarter fi nals of the women's division. Jere McGaffey and Dick An- Bush Guest At Nebraskan Lunch Friday Jerry Bush, University basket ball coach, will be the soecial guest of t h e Nebraskan at its wee k 1 y j press luncheon , Friday in par- - lor X of the -' .

Also, Courtw Lincoln Star star of . the- Bush week certificates will be handed out. - All those vishing to attend should contact Bob Ireland by 4 p.m. Wednesday, at the Nebraskan C'iitS. 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 A very grave financial situation Ag Freshman: MU Student Dies In One Car Crash Nebrka Phot RATH JEN Harold "Wally" Rathjen, 18, a freshman m the College of Agri culture, was killed and three other persons were injured in a one-car crash southwest of Riverton early Sunday morninj. Franklin County Sheriff Albert Gelken said the car driven by Rathjen came to a dead end on a country road and did not make the necessary right or left turn. The sheriff said the driver ap parently lost control of. the car and it rolled over. Injured were Larry Wulf, also freshman at the University of Nebraska and Glenda Mizelfelt and Jolene Roberson, both of Red Cloud. Miss Robertson, who was listed in fair condition in a Hastings hos pital, suffered a fractured pelvis, several fractured ribs and internal injuries. Miss Mitzelfelt received cuts and bruises and Wulf received a broken arm. The sheriff said Rathien, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Rathjen of Inavale, Neb., apparently died of a broken neck and internal in juries shortly after the crash which took place about 1:30 a.m. Sunday. Both Wulf and Rathjen are mem bers of the Ag Men's Club at 3248 Starr. drews won four of five debates but did not make the quarter fi nals in the men's division. Mel vyn Eikleberry and Dick Shugrue had an identical record in the junior men's division. Shugrue won a superior rating in discussion. Miss Bacon and Eikleberry each rated an excel lent. Andrews placed first and Mc Gaffey third in extemporaneous speaking. Miss Copeland and Shugrue each reached the finals in the poetry reading contest. Miss Reimers and Miss Jones participated in oratory. Outsido World: mimmmmi In IIijIl!l;MpIli; Pll 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. Students 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 warned "anyone who starts anything wiH get nailed hard." Final Movo Hungary's puppet regime has begun a stern new camnaicn to vioe sut the last vestiges of opposition trolled government dissolved the' major workers' councils that hav tried to negotiate for Hungarian freedom and proclaimed marJki Jw. 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.
