A special committee appointed
b Chancellor Hardin has offered
recommendations to the Board of
Regents who were meeting in a
ecret session lat Sunday night to
make effective the budget-less bill
of the Legislature. v
The Committee told the Regents
that beginning immediately after
Spring Vacation the administration
of the University would be turned
over to the State Penitentiary in
Lincoln in order for efficient and
thorough administration reforms
might take place.
"We believe that Uw Pen, which
has experience in regimenting peo
ple to do things can handle this
job They have the machines, the
raw materials and the equipment
necessary to turn the University
into a productive institution. This
will end once and for aU this idea
of educational folderall," the
chairman of the committee said.
The Regents were meeting at
14th and P Street and were ad
dressed by Chancellor Hardin.
"Gentlemen, this is an important
move. I have already had many
of my personal effects moved to
the state penitentiary and Dr.
Breckenridge is right behind me.
Mr. Pittenger is right behind him.
Dean Colbert is right behind him.

Rag prior to presenting the bill
before the assembled legislature
that he believed the University
"should use its ingenuity to meet
the critical situation and the bill
provides ways and means for the
school to do just that."
The 267-page bill stipulates that
each organization on the campus
will assume the responsibility best
suited for it. "That means," Vogel
stated, "that the Chancellor right
down to the lowliest scum in a
fraternity will have to become pro
ductive in an effort to save more
money for the state."
The Senator from Axtell almost
had her Foote in her mouth when
she suggested that the University
ment take over license plate manu
facturing? And we believe that by
reversing many of the jobs of both
institutions the young people will
get a bettter look at life." Regent
The bill provides that the Union
will take over road sign maintain
ance. The Innocencts will manage
such functions as ushering at
Pershing Auditorium. The Motor
Boreds will handle the entertain
ment at the Village . . . And all
tasks that any University student
would and should be proud of do
ing," the budget bill said.
Various campus leaders, con
tacted concerning the measure
gave their opinions of the tasks.
Frank Hallgren, Dean of Men.
"If you, like me call me, Frank."
J. P. Colbert, Dean of Student
Affairs. "If we keep these kids
busy they'll have less time to get
in my hair. My only regret is that
the bill says the Committee on
Student Affairs and the State Pa
role Board will have to work hand
in hand. And anymore than 125
committee meetings a week is too
much for any engineer."
Bob Handy, Student Activities
Director. "Outside of seeing that
the ballroom gets the right ma
chinery for shoe manufacturing
installed, I'm not too worried about
the program. You know I've al
ways believed in the students. Now
at least well know that we can
get a full house once in a while."
Ben Belmont, Campus wheel:
"Nobody tells me what to do, I'm
headed for Peru tomorrow."
Charley Fike, former IFC vice
president: "I understand we will
now be in charge of producing
liquor stamps for the bottles. It's
a fine idea, I believe that no bot
tle be stamped before it is tested."
Samuel Eddy, History Instruc
tor: "This is a socio-economic and
a religio4ateUectual coup if I ever
mem: -we ve got enouga en
velopes to stuff already."
And the comments ran like that
all over the campus. But the
Chancellor, who called a special
convocation for 2 p.m. today in the
Coliseum cautioned the students,
"Just because each of you will be
expected to work 12 hours a day
five days a weelcdoesnt mean that
you can get away with not having
assignments nmsnea. There g no
excuse for that type of conduct.
"I just hope," he concluded,
"that by the time this biennium is

tees to give each and 'every stu
dent, faculty member and under
paid employee on this campus a

Rabble Blasts University
By HENRY CABOT LODGE JR.
Charges that the University fac
ulty is "contented, in fine spirits
and convinced as to the oppor
tunities offered at the University"
were made by the Rev. Peter
Rabble, pastor of the Lincoln Uni
tarian Church in an open letter to
Chancellor Clifford Hardin de
livered Sunday morning.
The Rev. Mr. Rabble said that
during recent months he had
spoken with many professors in
many departments and that they
generally reflected these views.
The Lincoln minister stated that
there are always those who would
enhance the free search after
truth. He said, "They say you
may go as far as you want to and
"But what can be accomplished
through public praise can not be
achieved through the back door

doesnt have any business giving

the first place not get a substan
tial increase in its biennial budget.
As a matter of fact we see no need
for the University to get any
budget what so ever."
Several members of the board of
regents were contacted by the Pink
Rag but only one would comment
on the move of the legislature.
Regent Frank Thompson said,
"Ah, fondest, poorest, meekest,
Where's the money that you seek
est?" Chancellor Hardin said he would
appoint a special committee to
investigate the bill, which has the
emergency clause on it and which
will become law as soon as the
Governor signs it.
Governor Anderson said this
when contacted about the mea
sure. "This bill is meant to help
the University out of a whole. I
have always been a friend of the
University. And anything that
looks good to me looks good for
the University. I can't understand
every detail of the budget rec
ommendatior by the Legislature.
Jbut then who can?"
Students who were attending the
NUCWA mock legislature heard of
the measure while in session Sat
urday afternoon. Gov. Jack Pol
lard, who was addressing the ses
sion at the time, stated, "Quiet
everybody! I want to get out of
all upperclassmen beginning to
morrow. Several persons attend
ing the meeting said that this
decision "was the wisest of all
the decisions the Regents have
type similar to Communist sub
version. It is precisely the won
derful state of affairs the Univer
sity now faces," he stated.
inrougn your scrupulous re
gard for honestythrough your
public statements, through your
private acts, you have easily
kept the goblin of fear from the
campus." Rabble was directing
the praise to Dr. Hardin.
The chancellor was called the
"most important man in the
state" in the sermon. The Rev.
Mr. Rabble said that since the
policies followed by the Univer
sity will no doubt be the "single,
most influential factor in the fu
ture of the State of Nebraska" the
role the chancellor plays is fore
most. Commenting on the State of the
University address made by Chan
cellor Hardin Oct. 4, Rabble noted
that the chief point of praise today
is not the ample parking in cam
pus or the commendable building
program but the maintenance of
the highest of qualities of facul
ties. He quoted Hardin as saying, "I
have said that I consider the main
tenance of a quality teaching staff
the smallest and easiest rpoblem
which the University faces."

This decision was made after a

suite of the Carroline Tower.
Granto Buzzo, speaker for the
upperclassmen, presented his case
against having underclassmen stu
dents as teachers. His age-long
case against this movement was
to no avail, since president-elect
Hogart "Harvey", was for the de
cision. A motion was made to this ef
fect by underclassman, Sweeny
Swine, representative of the fresh
men members. He stated, "Fresh
men are new here at the Univer

of a privileged class.
