The string ensemble is an addi

The Madrigal Singers will sing
"Fum, Fum, Fum," "Carol of the
Birds," and "Ya Viene La Vieja,"
Spanish carols; "Patapan" and
"The Sleep of the Child Jesus,"

Nebraskan business manager,
George Madsen, appeared before
the Publications Board Monday

staff will ultimately decide wheth

Endorses 'Open Meeting' Request:
OGHfd Of Pll&flCOflOfIS
The Board of Publications has
unanimously approved the request
of Sam Jensen, Nebraskan editor,
that it endorse the Nebraskan
campaign for open meetings of
the Committee on Students Affairs.
In the Monday meeting, the
Board stated that although it, as
a subcommittee of the Committee
in Student Affairs, did not have
the power to issue a directive to
it, it neverless approved of Jen

In an appearance before the

the Homecoming Queen election
has not been a constitutionally
recognized function of any organ
ization, that the Homecoming
Queen election is an election of
campus -wide interest and that
the request of Tassels to include
the sponsorship of the Homecom
ing Queen Election in their consti
tution does not provide methods
consonant with the best interests
of the student body.
The Judiciary Committee recom
mended that if no satisfactory plan
for the election of the Homecoming
Queen, is submitted to -that com
mittee by the first .Student Coun
cil meeting in February, the Stu
dent Council should establish a
procedure for the election either
under the sponsorship of the Stu
dent Council or some other in
terested organization.
According ta Shirley McPeck,
Tassels president, the amendment
submitted to the Student Council
stipulated that the Homecoming
Queen should be a junior member
of Tassels (active or pledge) with
a 5.5 accumulative average. The
proposal also called for Tassels to
elect the Queen, Miss McPeck
In an effort to satisfy the Student
Council Judiciary Committee Miss
McPeck predicted that Tassels
would change the present amend
ment to "include a wider selec
tion of girls and a different meth
od of selection other than the
Tassels method."

that the custom of closed meetings

"Before a decision is reached
in regard to instigating a daily
paper the situation should be
weighed carefully," Jensen went
on to say.
The last time the Nebraskan
printed four issues per weelc was
in the spring semester of the 1952
53 academic year. In the fall of
1953 the publications board cut the
publication rate down to three pa
pers a week "in an effort of equal
ize expenditures of the paper with
the income available from student
tuition and advertising."
The 1953 decision of the publica
tions board to decrease the pub
lication rate of the Nebraskan was
accompanied by a reduction in the
number of paid staff members
from 11 to nine and a similar re
duction in pay.
The committee's action to re
duce the publication rate was
prompted by a $6300 loss suffered
by the Nebraskan during the 1952
53 academic year.
