U Hm S 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 sed,". Liebers said. In discussing the proposed tui tion increase Liebers said, "It 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 ents." 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 ka University Committee on World Affairs was planning to hold a mock session of the Unicameral as their spring project, Liebers said "Wonderful. I think this is a fine idea." "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 tor," Liebers comminted. 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." LINCOLN, NEBRASKA .4 Nebraskan photo Morrow, Barb Erickson, Sandy Kadlechek, and Harriet Feese.

Student Council: 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 Wednesday. Introduced by Dave Mossman, representative from Teachers Col lege, the motion specifies that the vice-president in charge of elec tions shall sign a "Tally Sheet" of all elections and shall file the re sults in the Student Council office Mossman stated that his reason for introducing the legislation was that the Student Council currently "does not have records of elec tions that are important.'.' 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 ht thinks they will make a situa tion funnier. While in high school, he billed himself as "The Great Carsoni" and was very much in demand at community functions.

Ila was still polishing his routines three years later when he left the battleship Committee Hearing: holme fate Chancellor Clifford Hardin Thursday spoke before the Legis lature's Revenue Committee in support of the bill which would continue the institutional building levy. 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 in the University's physical plant make a ruung which will hold precedence in cases of future ex ecutive vacancies. Chairman of the special Legisla ture committee, Dave Keene, an nounced that progress was being made in an effort to get student opinion to state senators. Council mejriber Marv Breslow, announced that the judiciary com mittee is studying the Corn Cobs constitution.
