The Unicameral budget com
mittee discussed raising tuition at
the University by as much per
year as $30 at an open meeting
at the statehouse Thursday.
Chancellor Clifford Hardin said,
The "maximum amount" that
tuition could b raised at the Uni
versity without affecting enroll
ment would be about $30.
Senator John Beaver asked Dr.
Hardin, "If some of these items
like adjustment to a 40 hour week,
enlargement of the agricultural
extension program and so forth
were cut off the budget, and the
repair of facilities was added to
the building levy, could you then
adjust tuition to make up the dif
ference between the $3.2 million
increase the governor has offered
and the remainder of the $5.5
million increase that you request
ed?" ' Hardin said that raising the tui
tion by $30 would give the Uni
versity a maximum of approxi
mately a million dollars. This
would bring the budget Increase
to a total of 4.2 million dollars.
Senator McHenry asked, "Will
the regents raise tuition or will
we (the legislature) have to?"
Hardin replied that "The re
gents have considered it but we
haven't been able to nail down a
figure. Previously, it has been the
proper function of the regents to
regulate tuition, but I certainly
think the legislature has the right
to instruct the regents."
When McHenry asked "You'd
like to see them keep it that way
wouldn't you?" the Chancellor an
swered, "Yes, I would."
Senator Karl Vogel, chairman of
the committee, said, "This brings
up the question of whether the
legislature should take over this
function which up to now has been
an administrative one."
Hardin reviewed the priorities
of the 1957-59 budget for the com
mittee. The chancellor indicated
that the budget recommended by
Governor Victor Anderson will
cover salary increases on a merit
basis for staff members, take care
of fixed costs such as alncreased
social security contributions, in
creased retirement stipends, in
creased utilities for new buildings
and additional work at the Alli
ance and Northeast Nebraska Ex
periment Stations.
Hardin also stated that if tui
tion was raised, the money gained
from it would be utilized to hire
additional faculty. Hardin said,
"II a raise in tuition is going to
come it should be used for the
teaching program adding to the
The three areas that would be
hardest hit In the proposed cut of
Hardin's request for a 5.5 million
dollar increase to the 3.2 million
dollars suggested by the governor
would be the program to add to
the faculty, the medical college
hospital and the agricultural ex
tension and experiment service.
"I am terribly concerned about
this hospital thing. With this cut
we wouldn't be able to operate
the hospital in all its wards," Har
din continued.
Hardin also told the senators
that the proposed two million dol
lar increase In salaries Is conser
vative. "The competition from
other institutions is greater than
we thought. We should really have
more to compete with them oa
their own level."
According to evidence presented
by Hardin to the committee, the
University's present tuition of $180
a year is about the averse tui
tion for this area. Colorado and
Kansas charge slightly less than
this figure while the University
of Iowa and Iowa State College
are slightly above this.

College Health Day:
Risk Of Polio Reduced
By Salic Vaccination
The importance of a Salk vac
cination for every man, woman
and child in Nebraska was stres
sed Thursday afternoon.
A medical researcher said the
vaccine is effective in reducing
the risk of polio, although it has
no major effect in reducing the
degree of transmission of the polio
virus from one human to another.
Dr. Herbert Wenner, research
professor at Kansas University,
spoke at the University's College
Health Day on "The Great Strug
gle: You VS. Viruses."
Discussing polio, he said that
"When the infection occurs in vac
cinated individuals, the antibody
rise quickly provides a blockade
of the virus."
But, he added, this blockade has
no effect whatsoever on the ca
pacity of the infected individual
"to 'excrete polio virus in fecal dis
charges." When this happens in a popula
tion susceptible to polio, there is
a spread of the virus, Dr. Wen
ner said.'
He said it is clear that polio
vaccination, "although primarily
concerned with abolishing the risk
of paralysis, looks toward the oc
currence of natural infections as
a way to keep the immunity of the
individual in the hyper-reactive
Dr. Wenner said there is still a
division of -opinion on how to most
successfully immunize against pol
io: with inactive virus, as is found
in the Salk vaccine, or with active
Some believe he pointed, out, that
immunization based on use of ac
tive virus would be more likely to
induce a more enduring, as well
as a more solid immunity against
"Immunity acquired naturally in
such diseases as measles, mumps,
and yellow fever in man appears
to be more solid and enduring
than induced immunity."
On the other hand, Dr. Wenner
pointed out, illnesses following in
fection with respiratory viruses
convey less solid immunity and
reinfections occur.
Some medical men believe that
immunity following natural infec
tion is better than induced because
of the swifter response during the
course of reinfection.
Dr. Salk's answer, Dr. Wenner
said, is that it is possible to induce
a similar itate cf readiness with

that the triggering of the antibody
mechanism will occur just as rap
idly after the use of inactivated
virus vaccines.
"Another reason for using active
virus vaccines," Dr. Wenner ex
plained, "is to reduce the risk
of virus dissemination through dis
charge of virus in fecal contents."
Dr. Wenner's visit to the cam
pus is sponsored by the University
Health Services.

To Study
NU Space
The appointment of a committee
to study the ways and means of
securing fullest possible utilization
of classroom and laboratory space
has been appointed and their
names will be released today, ac
cording to A. C. Beckenridge,
Dean of Faculties.
The Faculty Senate, meeting In
a special session Tuesday, passed
b motion by Dr. Harry Weaver,
chairman of the faculty liasoa
committee, authorizing the chan
cellor to appoint this committee.
The Senate's plan calls for con
sideration of the classroom space
problem in the following order.
First,. make sure that all avail
able space is fully used between
the hours of 8 a.m. and noon and
between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.'
Second, if full use of space dur
ing those hours is found inadequate
to serve the University's enroll
ment, then consider scheduling
classes during the noon hour; next
from 7 to 8 a.m. and finally be
tween 7 and 10 p.m.
Chancellor Clifford Hardin said
following the meeting, "This is the
best system. It will create the
least amount of trouble. The situa
tion won't be too serious for two
years but something like this may
be needed the third year because
we won't have the necessary class
room space."
The urgency of finding addition
al space pending further develop
ment, of the University's building
program, tne unanceiior saia, is
emphasized by a report from Dr.
Floyd Hoover, University regis
trar. The report declares that unless
prompt action is taken the Uni
