think the budget the governor has
submitted to the legislature is a
fair and equitable one as far as
the University is concerned. The
governor has recommended that
the University's appropriation be
increased by 3.2 million."
Chancellor Hardin's original re
quest was for a $5.5 million dollar
increase. 'l think that had drouth
conditions not existed outstate
there would have been a much
better chance that Mr. Hardin's
original request would have pas

In discussing the proposed tui

doesn't make sense for the people
of the state to say to the students
'We are hard up so you have to
pay to support the University.'
Most students or their parents
have all they can do to maintain
themselves in school right now.
They should not be expected to
bear the cost of the University;
the drouth has hit students hard
too because it has hit their parr
Liebers did say, however, that
he expected "a small increase in
tuition." "It is hard to think that
tuition at the University or the
stae normal schools could be
doubled," he coninued.
When informed that the Nebras

Affairs was planning to hold a
mock session of the Unicameral as

"Students should know about
their Legislature so that they can
analyze issues that are presented
to the Legislature. Senators wel
come letters from their constituents
but too often these leters are
writen without real though. You
would be surprised how much a
good letter influences your Sena

The senator also said, "Follow
ing the Legislature is like reading
an exciting novel. You would not
form an opinion of the characters
involved by reading only one page
of the novel. Neither should you
form an opinion of the Legislature
from one day's newspaper ac
counts. You ought to stand back
and take a lool from the overall
progress of weeks or months."

Motion For Recording
Election Results Passed
A motion calling for a record of
all student election results to be
kept, on file for one year was
passed in Student Couacil meeting
Introduced by Dave Mossman,
representative from Teachers Col
lege, the motion specifies that the

for introducing the legislation was
that the Student Council currently
"does not have records of elec

Earlier Mossman met with the
Council executive committee in an
effort to find a means of filling a
vice-presidential vacancy which
has existed since February.

He was born in Corning, Iowa,
on Oct. 23, 1925. His father's job
with a utilities company kept the
family on the move until 1933,
when they settled in Norfolk, Ne
braska. As a teen-ager, he took a great
interest in ventriloquism and mag
ic, which "he still uses whenever

he billed himself as "The Great

Committee Hearing:
Chancellor Clifford Hardin
Thursday spoke before the Legis
lature's Revenue Committee in
support of the bill which would
continue the institutional building
Governor Victor Anderson also
appeared before the committee to
ask for amendments in the bill.
As introduced, the bill would ex
tend the building levy for 10 years
but would reduce the amount of
the levy from 1.1 mills to three
quarters of a mill.
Anderson asked that the amount
be lowered to half a mill instead
of three-fourths.
He also sought a priority sys
tem1 for allocation of the funds
with a state committee set up to
determine which institutions would
get the money. This would be in
line with the recommendations
made by the governor in his budg
et message.
Hardin cited four "substantial
reasons" why the building levy
should be continued:
1. Safeguarding the investment
