The two day conference of the
Association of College and Univer
eity Residence Halls ended Satur
day with a banquet featuring Rex
Knowles as the speaker.
During the two days, group dis;
eussions covering all aspects of
residence hall life were held. Pan
els were held on activities, scholar
ship, athletics, social life, student
government, and administration.
Eigh schools with a total of 87
delegates were present at the con
ference. They came from. Iowa
State Teachers College, Iowa State
College, University of arkansas,
University of Missouri, Oklahoma
A&M, Southern Illinois University
Colorado State College of Educa
tion and the University of Nebras
ka. The weather was responsible for
- four schools not being abl to at
tend the conference. The Univer
sity of Utah, Colorado University
Denver University, Colorado
School of Mines, and possibly oth
er guest schools from that area
were kept from attendance by the
excessive amount of snow they
have received. '
According to Bill Hoightori,
this year's vice presid-ent of
ACURH, the conference was very
successful because of the many sol
utions that passed t between . the
delegates regarding problems that
were closely associated with each
school. Houghton also stated that
the delegates were very respon
sive to the problems and many
times the discussion groups lasted
much longer than the alloted time.
All day Friday and Saturday
morning were devoted to the dis
cussions and a business meeting!
was held on Saturday afternoon.
Next year's convention site will
be Iowa State and as per the con
stitution next year's vice presi
dent comes from Iowa State. Of
ficers include president, Haile
Clay and secretary, Dorsaysaw
Sellman, both from Missouri Uni
versity; " vice-president Ed Stern
berg from Iowa State Uollege.
The success of this year's con
ference was due largely to the
planning and extensive prepara
tion of the steering commute. The

Informed sources, who declined

committee voted, five to two to cut
$3.3 million off the $5.5 million tax
increase sought by the .University,
according to the Lincoln Journal.
The tentative increase, which
could be changed on the floor of
the Legislature, represents a cut
of one million dillars In the
amount recommended by Governor
Chancellor Clifford Hardin said
Saturday "The Budget Committee
has not given us a report as to
any ' actions they have taken on
the University budget. If the in
formal reports are true, the situa

wish to eomment further until I
have had an opportunity to meet
with the Board of Regents."
Earlier, Hardin had told, the
Budget Committee that the three
areas that would be hardest hit by
the cuts in the proposed increase
would be the program to add to
the faculty, the medical college
hospital and agricultural extension
Governor Anderson stated Sat
urday, "I haven't studied it (the
proposed cut). The chairman (Sen

made a complete study of the
budget with facts and figures and
as yet they have not released it
to me." ' v
When asked if the cut would in

depends on where they have made
the cuts. I cannot say anything
until I have seen the committee's
