Monday that if efforts to defend
his "hard tack" budget fail on the
floor of the Legislature, he will
have to "seriously consider" a ve
to of the entire istate budget for
The basis of the Governor's "hold

als to lower the state insitutional
building levy from $1.10 to 50
cents per $1,000 of property and
eliminate the 25 cents per $1,000

When asked to clarify earner
statements that he would "fight"
proposals to increase his recom

Governor Adnerons said, "I have
pledged muself to holding the line.
Tuition Bill
Fails To Pass
A bill to double tuition rates at
the University failed to be ad
vanced from the Legislature's edu
cation committee.
The measure, LE410, got three
votes for advancement. Four votes
are needed to get a bill out of com
mittee. The committee can reconsider
the bill at any time.
Present tuition fees are $90 per
semester for resident students and
$180 for non-residents, according
to University Registrar Floyd
The bill, as originally offered by
Sen. Terry Carpenter of Scotts
bluff, sets $360 and $180 per semes
ter as tuition rates for non-Nebras-kans
and Nebraskans, respective
ly, at the University.
The committee amended version
of the bill provides for doubling
of tuition charges, instead of set
ting a specific amount. Tuition and
fees now are $90 and $180 for resi

approach would be to give consid

The budget bills have not yet

the session and are among the last
passed by the senators.
The governor said, "I'm hope
ful I get the budget early enough
to study it before they (the Legis

The University Theater's produc

Barlach will be another "first" for
this year.
The play was first produced in
Leipzig, Germany, in 1918, but it
had never been produced on an
American stage.
Max Whittaker, director of the
experimental theater, said that the
University group will use the trans
lation by Dr. Naomi Jackson of
the McMaster College . in Hamil

"We are trying to capture the
mood of Barlach as Dr. Jackson
captured it and as. it is expressed
in the lithographs now on display
here at the University," Whittaker
The lithographs, which belong
to Dr. Jackson's private collection
of Barlach "lore" are being exhib

One will be the C. W. Boucher

other, the C. W. Boucher Memor

top senior cadet scholastically.
His 8.441 grade average for four
years earned him these honors.
McGaffey gives debating credit
for his almost perfect marks. He
entered the University primarily
because he wanted to debate.
And, he said, "I was told when
a freshman that top scholarship
was required to become a mem

Jere took the advice seriously
and has been a top debater for the
past four years.
After four years of studies, he
will receive two undergraduate de
grees in June, instead of the usual
one. In addition to a Bachelor of
Science in Business Administration
he will earn a Bachelor of Arts.
The second degree has required
Jere to complete at least 30 ex

Whittaker, give the criticism of the
drama following the last perform

surprisingly theatrical. "Barlach,
of course, is noted for his painting
and his sculpture. Yet this play
demonstrates his versatility," the
director stated.
He saii that the same "force"
which is evident in the lithographs
and other art works of the Ger
man artist are evident in the play.
"He must have had a very vivid
imagination, since every field he
experimented in was so success
ful," Whittaker said.
The Bar! ch play in its entirety
is much like those works of other
European dramatists, "that is, the
action often stops so that the phil
osophy of the playwright can be
expounded. But we have cut much
