By SAM HALL Staff Reporter Governor Victor Anderson ex pressed confidence ' Tuesday that the legislature "will make an ef fort" to bring the University budg et increase up to his 3.2 million dollar budget recommendation. This was Governor Anderson's belief when contacted by the Daily Nebraskan in regard to the Legis lative Budget Committee's report ed cut of one million dollars from his 3.2 million dollar recommenda tion. ! )riginally the . University had requested a 5.5 miBion dollar in crease over the amount appropria ted for the 1955-57 biennium. Governor Anderson stated that the Budget Committee had report ed to him a cut that would not ex ceed the necessary amount to cover salary increases for the present staff, which would be 2.2 million dollars. Beyond that it is not definitely known how much the committee has cut. "Since the staff is the backbone of any university, it was my primary interest to see that the present staff, receive a salary in crease," stated the governor. He went on to say that he does not know the feeling of the legis lature on this subject. "They have not taken any position and prob ably will not until they have the Willey, Sherdemang: Th i Roy Willey and Stephaney Sherdeman have been chosen as the leads in the play "Harvey" to be presented at Howell Memor ial Theater, according to Dr. Mar garet Servine, director.

He has appeared in several other theater produc tions this year including "Dark of the Moon" and "Corn is Green." Miss Sherdeman is a junior in the College of Arts and Sciences majoring in speech. Her expe rience has been mostly with the Communisty Playhouse in plays such as, "Time Out For Ginger" and "Picnic." She also had a bit part in a University play last year entitled, "Mary of Scotland."

When asked if he intended to fight the measure when it reached the legislative floor, he said, "It is not my responsibility to fight it. The 'law provides that I make recommendations only.

A ;V J a sS Julius Stone: Soviet Aggression Test Unacceptable To World An Australian professor of inter national law sees the Soviet Un ion's insistence on a rule-of-thumb test for aggression as a political campaign to further interests that are by no means those of man kind as a whole. Dr. Julius Stone of University of Sydney, delivered Tuesday eve ning the second of a series of thjjee Roscoe Pound lectures at the University. "The zealous promotion of defini tions may not always mean any great love of these ideals," he asserted, "just as opposition to definition does pot mean any lack of love." The United States, he pointed out, is opposed to the enterprise of definition. He particularly questions the clause of the Soviet's proposed, definition, which declares that na tion an aggressor Wiiich commits the act of: "Landing or leading of its land, sea or air force inside the boun daries of another State without the permission of the government of the latter, or the violation of the conditions of such permission, par ticularly as regards the length of their stay or the extent of the area in which they may stay." Dr. Stone said: ' "As between movement of NATO Forces in NATO countries, and those of Warsaw Pact countries, this category of aggressions seems fair and sensible on its face." But, he said, it is in the satel lites, so important for Soviet de fensive and offensive powers, where struggles are most likely to arise between two governments, one puppet and one not. 1 Dr. Stone explained that when the Soviet's definition was drafted Soviet troops were present with the permission of the government concerned, "that government be ing acceptable to, if not dominat ed by, the Soviet Union. "By swallowing this part of the Soviet definition, therefore, the Powers would give their blessing to Soviet military domination of these countries. "They also would brand in ad Budget Committee stated, "The University is not being cut; they're being raised. They always talk about being cut. Every session since 1947, they've had an in crease." "Progress is being made at the University," said the governor, "they've' received an increase each year." "This years proposed in crease is one of the largest in the school's history." According to the Lincoln Jour nal the committee said it had rea sons for cutting the school's re quest and had used a formula to Committee Report; The Faculty Senate tabled a mo tion by Donald Dysinger, cnair man of the Committee on Com' mittees which was presented to the Senate at their meeting on Tuesday. ' The recommendations included: (1) The Committee on Stu dent Affairs be dropped as a Senate Committee and be re constituted as a University Committee on Student Affairs, in accordance with the By-Laws and Rules of the Board of Re gents, (2) The present committees on Commencement and Honors Convocation be dropped as Sen ate Committees and be reorgan ized al a University Committee. (3) The Senate Committee on Committees be required to de fine to the Chancellor, on his request, the areas of responsibili ty of these University commit tees as well as the member ship of each; and make nomin ations of faculty members to fill vacancies on such commit tees in the same manner as Senate committees. (4) These University Commit tees shall be directly responsible .to the Chancellor, but shall make an annual report to the Univer sity Senate for informational purposes. (5) On those University Com mittees which deal with Student matters, the students should be allowed to vote. Miller said, 'More is involved vance as the crime of aggression, the only recourse that might some day be open to themselves for as sisting peoples held down by So viet forces, after the clear over throw by the people concerned of the Soviet-supported regime." In conclusion, Dr. Stone asked: "Why should Western countries condemn themselves in advance as aggressors if they should ever decide to aid peoples who have clearly rejected a Government, which then is kept in office by the naked power of Soviet arms." Dr. Stone, who is now visiting professor at Harvard University, will deliver the final lecture, "The Aggression Notion and the Future of Peace Enforcement," Wednes day at 8 p.m. in the Love Library auditorium. The public is invited to the lec tures, sponsored by the College of Law and members of the Pound Lectureship Committee. Van Overbeck, SandoiToGive NU Lectures Two noted lectures, Miss Mari Sandoz and Dr. Van Overbeck, are scheduled to give talks at the Uni versity Wenesday and Thursday. Miss Sandoz, a Nebraska-born author, will speak on "The Indians of the High Plains" at the annual joint dinner meeting of Sigma Xi and Phi Beta Kappa to be held Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in the Union ballroom. Members and non-members may attend the $1.50 per plate dinner. Reservations should be made with either Professor McCashland, 108 Temporary C, or Professor Van dersall, 209 Andrews Hall. Dr. Overbeck, will give a public lecture on Thursday at 7:80 p.m. in Bessey Hall Auditorium on "Plant Hormones in Agriculture." He is an authority on plant hor mones and is head of the plant physiology department of the Agri cultural Research division of Shell Development .Company, Modesto, California. Ity S guide it in trimming the gover nor's recommendation. He added that the Budget Committee had more time than he to review budg et requests tnd he had no idea of what the formula consisted. Early in the year, the Univer sity had indicated that it might go to the floor in its fight for mora funds if the Budget Committee ac tion was unsatisfactory. Should the tentative committee report prove final, a stiff floor fight for at least the 3.2 million dollar figure recommended by the governor will develop, the Lincoln oof ffH than is apparent and more timt should be devoted, to discussion and exchange of ideas." After the motion was tabled, sev eral professors commented in the discussion that the students should be allowed to vote on the Commit tees. Herbert Davis Professor of Dairy Husbandry, "it has been noted in the past that general relations be-" tween the Faculty and students has not been what one would de sire. This is due, in my estimation, in part, to the vote situation on the Committees. Students on com mittees right now have the same status as second class citizens. This should be remedied." Robert Knoll, Ass. Professor of English commented, "The last few years the students have been in valuable on the Subcommittee on Student Publications of which I am Cr air man. They definite ly should be allowed to vote." Ruth Levinson, Asst. Professor of Physical Education, while com menting that students should be given the vote, added this rec ommendation, that the Student Council designate just one per son for the Committee and have the Council responsible for that person. "The Chancellor shouldn't be shouldered with the responsibil ity of choosing alone," she added. Also presented to the Senate was the report of Marjorie Johnston, chairman of the Committee on General Scholarship Awards. She reported that in the academ ic year of 1956-57, 492 scholarships had been granted, totaling $55, 673, which "was $11,980 more than last years scholarships. Three hundred Regents scholar ships to Freshmen were granted. Seventy-eight Donors Scholar Scholarships to upperclassmen and seventy-one Donors scholarships to freshmen were also granted. The Chancellor closed the ses sion by commenting on the Budget situation. He said "The situation will improve. All is not lost as yet. However, it will probably be a month before the Legislature dis cusses the budget on the Hoar." "I would like to add that the Board of Regents and myself em phasize that first priority will be given faculty salaries and the teaching work load. I can't at this time make a guarantee, but I will say that these matters will be our first consideration." Annual NU Premed Day Set April 27 The annual Premed Day, will be held April 27 on the Medical Col lege campus In Omaha, according to Eugene Powell, premed advisor.
