The action is no reflection on
the help given by the student rep
resentatives. We have welcomed
their opinions and ideas and hope
that they will keep giving them,"
Colbert continued.
. When asked if the Faculty Senate
might be induced to return voting
privileges to the students Colbert
answered, "I am not going to com
ment because I dont know what the
opinion of the Senate is at present.
However, I do think that support
could be found in the Senate for
returning voting privileges to the
Professor James Blackman, Sec
retary of the Faculty Senate, said
that is was his duty to notify the
Student Council and the various
committees affected by the reso
lution. Blackman said, "The Student
Council was not notified of the reso
lution through an error on my part.
However, they knew of the deci
sion of the Faculty Senate because
they called twice about it.
Blackman stated that the Senate
had passed a resolution in 1953
which granted student representa
tives the right to vote as an experi
ment. The experiment was contin
ued by a second resolution in 1954
because it was felt that "the stu
dents were doing a good job."
Previous to the two- resolutions,
faculty members of the commit
tees with student representation
had acted at their own volition iD
granting voting privileges to the
students. In the absence of any
specific legislation on the matter,
students had continued to bold the
power to vote until Colberts di
rective to the Publications Board.
The committers with student
representatives which are affect
ed by the resoltuion are the Senate
Calendar Committee, with two stu

Committee, with two student mem

A bill to raise tuition rates at
the University and the four state
teachers colleges has been intro
duced in the Legislature by Sen.
Terry Carpenter.
Carpenter said the bill would di
rect tuition boosts large enough to
make up all the money asked by
the schools but not recommended
by Gov. Victor Anderson.
Anderson recommended $3.2 mil
lion of the $5.5 million increase
the University asked. The four
teachers colleges will receive
$300,000 of the $1.5 million in
crease they requested if the gov
ernor's budget is adopted.
Senator Carpenter's bill would
make tuition at the University $360
and $180 per semester for out oi
state and Nebraska 'students re
spectively. The bill would double
the present tuition of $180 and $90
which students now pay at the
University and the tuition at the
Teachers College would also be
doubled, from $60 to $120 per se
mester. Carpenter said his bill would di
rect the rates to b the same at

be high enough to encourage some
students to attend church colleges
