'In the Study of University of Nebraska Stu dent tuition which was prepared and presented by a subcommittee of the Board of Regents the men stated that "We believe that the University of Nebraska as a Land-Grant College and as a State University, must maintain its long-standing policy of equality of educational opportunity. To do otherwise is to break faith with a funda mental and unique idea of American higher ediK cation. Equality of educational opportunity in volves reasonable tuition-fee charges. -"We believe that the University of Nebraska, as a public institution, providing not only learn ing for young men and women but research and a wide variety of public services for the people of Nebraska, should be generally supported by all of the people of the state. "It is becoming increasingly apparent that the University of Nebraska will not receive financial support from tax sources which the Board of Regents feels is required. The Board is pain fully aware that the University of Nebraska is now entering a most critical phase of its life and that every means possible must be utilized to maintain as best it can the present program of instruction, research and public service." The Board, then, has taken a step which the people of Nebraska have failed to allow to be taken. They have been willing to admit that the University is not only in a precarious posi tion as far as its future as an institution of higher learning but also that some steps must be taken to pay for the school. The state Legislature, which has cramped the growth of the University, is responsible for the tuition increase. Because the members of the Unicameral have failed to accept the fact that the University is one of the most precious en tities of this state. They have failed to latch onto the foresight to see that the state of Nebraska cannot exist for too long on the present tax system. The State of Nebraska has offered a new tax basis this year. And for every new system offered the lobbies of the state representing minority groups hav worked hard and long to defeat the nex tax bases. The Unicameral cried that they could not give . the University every penny it asked for because the farmer had been suffering for two years from drought and were not able to afford an increase in the state's taxes. That same legislature refused to give Ne braskans a tax base which would enable the University to expand in the way a public insti tution should. Any condemnation should not be placed at the feet of the Regents. They have chosen the road which was inevitable. They have at least insured that the University will get some more money than could be obtained from the state. The Daily Nebraskan has sought, as long as this budget issue has been before us, to present to the students of the University a fair picture of the state's economy. We have talked with senators and we have talked with taxpayers. We have published the results of a poll taken by the Student Council which stated that most students here (seventy per cent of those polled) were against a tuition incrase. Students can't, apparently, afford a tuition bocst. But we must have the increase if we are to continue to prosper as an institute of higher education. Well, the Daily Nebraskan has looked around following this acticn and sought to find out what the students on the campus feel about the in crease. Many of those interviewed stated that they believed the action of the Regents was the only feasible action which could be taken under the present circumstances. A sophomore in Arts and Sciences said that he believed the Regents "were forced into mak ing this decision. If the tuition were not in creased by the proper governing body, the Legis lature would take it into its own hands to raise the tuition." An out of state student in the College of Arts and Sciences put it this way, "I don't like it. The action, rather than keeping the University on a hign plane will drop the prestige of this institu tion. We don't have the ski runs of Colorado or the 3.2 beer to warrant drawing out of state students. Furthermore, I can't afford to come here next year." Another student said that he knew some action had to be taken but that certain bad results will follow. And here are the results which, we believe, will follow this action: 1) Fewer out of state students will be coming to the University because of the tuition increase. 2) Facilities for a big increase in enrollment will not be as necessary as before. 3) Possibly more money will be available for the fewer teachers needed to handle the "boom" enrollment. 4) The University, which might have gained a reputation as a fine institution of higher educa tiona top-notch school, will suffer from cuts in income in the bulk quarters and finally 5) The students who might have felt they could come to the University; who might have dreamed of higher education and a chance to compete with the wealthy and the learned will be cut off from this opportunity. No more needs be said. Nebraskan Leiterips Importance The annual Honors Convocation Tuesday brought forth some rather stern and foreboding statements from Val Peterson, one-time Gov ernor of Nebraska and now national civil de fense director. Those students attending were brought rather sharply to mind of problems facing the nation and its leaders today, the same problems that will face these students and the rest of the country's future leaders. The problems presented in the address are those not usually comprehended or even con sidered by college students in their undergradu ate span on the campus. The University and its various academic and extra-curricular activities seem the most vital and important to the stu dent, and take up the bulk of his time and energy. It is therefore somewhat of a shock to emerge from the protective glow of the Lamp of Knowledge to face a world that makes campus politics look like a beginner's bridge game. We all have to grow up sometime. To the Editor: , In reply to the distraught sniper who has taken a shot at the s-elf confessed head chopper, Lee W. Chatfield ... A sniper Is one who hides in the dark and takes a shot at his victim and who lacks the intesti nal fortitude to come out in the open and is ashamed of his name. I have not analyzed the ABC's or PHD's that might be behind or in front of Mr. Chatfield 's name. The MAN in a job of this kind is what pays off. The distraught writer would lead one to think he might be some body and then use such vicious composition. I want to promise every student at the University of Nebraska that if they have an opportunity (and I mean oppor- I tunity) to seek counsel from Mr. Chatfield they will have met one of the finest top-level men bar no:ie. I have seen this man come up for over 25 years and I think I am fully qualified to write as I have. He has spent his entire, life in this class of work and has been exceptionally successful. Mr. Chat field is not ashamed of his name, but proud. Will the distraught Investigate the contribution Mr. Chatfield made while in the armed services and then have to take a smear ing 1 i k e this from a spineless writer who says he fears reprisals? There is nothing lower or more disgusting. Milton F. Scholz Duncan, Nebraska The Campus Green Lovely Dawn When morning fire presents itself across the sky And little people file into tiny ways of life 111 watch the streets for dashing cars and look For special people walking strangely by. And when these people approach the place While bashful eyes fear to gaze ahead Who knows what lingers in a young heart Which glances and hides within such youth. I'd love, I'd say, if only knowing who And peaceful rest upon the breast of dawn. Exhortation Fill the foetus fluch with flour. Pick pied pansies purple power. Wrap ripped rapp round wrinkles. Rowr Basil! Burst buoy's bubbly bower. Barry Wright Students Prefer Suburban Living E. L From The Editor's Desk: A. word or two before you go . By FRED DALY Editor The bearing on the "Mitch ell Case," is now only a mem ory to most of the campus ex cept for those directly involved with the committee, or di rectly interested in the case itself. The committee has not re leased any decision or any re sults of the bearings other than to say Dr. Mitchell has been advised cf what was said, and apparently is draft ing some sort of statement to send back. After these statements and testimony have been consid ered, the committee should issue a report or decision. What that report will be is cly speculation. But there will be, we hope, a report that will clear up this case that has rocked the Uni versity and the state for a year since it was first re ported in The Nebraskaa last spring. It was, to say the least, bad publicity for the University. Whatever the result of the hearings, it is hoped by those interested in this school and its reputation that enough light will be shed to clear up the case, or lack of one. A shadow falling across the Uni versity, even if it has been forgotten or pushed aside by many can only be detrimental to a healthy State of the Uni versity. A thief walked into a soror ity house at Iowa State last week, chatted with two of the residents for a few moments, and walked out with $30 stolen from billfolds and purses. The personal approach ap parently extends further than the insurance game. Kansas State alumni, fans and friends recently presented their basketball coach, Tex Winter, with a new car as a token of their esteem. What he really needs (and what five other Big Seven 'coaches need) is a rather sharp axe to bring one Mr, Chamberlain down to where the rest of us mortals live. It is spring again, as you no doubt know. And all the things that come with spring are be ing noted and catalogued and admired and greeted with heavy sighs. The grass is coming up. the trees are budding and people with convertibles are filling their cars up with other people who obviously have no concept of the frailty of the human body, and are racing loudly about the campus. But what no one really thinks about, or cares about, is that spring also brings hay fever to millions of allergy ridden people the wcrli over. Sometimes a good blizzard locks pretty good, in retro spect. Still, there are some nice things in the world, if one takes the trouble to overlook tuition burdens, final exams, C. Clyde and Friday afternoon labs. There is warm weather, springly-clad coeds, the Woods, graduation, iced tea at dinner, baseball, serenades, arrogant seniors philosophiz ing about "when I was a such-and-such," coeds in Bermuda shorts, Spring Day, picnics, sleeping through eight-o'clock and rain to settle the dust for at least a little while. So, be merry too soon you will be earning your own living.

' Tn ISrff, ifrr ftrftrOa (ACP) If preferences are any indication of future . behavior, it looks like the present trend to ward suburban living will continue in years to come. After gradua tion, substantially over half of the college students of today would prefer living in a suburban area rather than in the city proper or further out in the country. Coeds seem to prefer city living slightly more than do college males. Associated Collegiate Press gath ered this information on living pref erences by asking the following questions of a representative na tional cross-section of college stu dents: After you graduate and settle down at a permanent job would you prefer living in a city, in a sub urb, or further out in the coun try? The results: Students prefering city living all give one reason for their choice, the city contains all the elements need ed for work and entertainment. A Lynchburg College (Lynchburg, Va.) freshman puts it this way: "There is more to do in a city.' A senior at the University of Ar kansas (Fayettebille) elaborates a bit more with this statement: "There are more economic, social and cultural advantages to a city." And in answer to the question a Baruch School of Business (City College of New York) senior coed says she prefers to live in the city, but then adds:"only for a while.' Preference for suburban living is easily explained. The following comments give a fairly represent ative idea of student opinion. A sophomore coed at the Uni versity of Arkansas feels a suburb , "offers more advantages than city not so crowded; good place to raiise children." And a junior at the same school sees it this way: "You are close to a city but have j the quiet of the country." "In the j suburbs you have a closer com munity and better schools," is the opinion of a senior at Oswego State Teachers College (Oswego, N. Y.) while Northern Illinois State College (DeKalb) senior sums things up like this: "Suburbs offer access to city advantages without city conveniences." Students preferring country liv ing appear to have stronger feel ings about their choice. They gener ally cite the desire for elbow room and the wholesome atmosphere for raising a family. Here are a cou ple of typical viewpoints: A Mississippi College (Clinton) freshman coed has this to say: "With all the rush and fuss of city life no one can ever hope to do anything other than fit the pat tern, and nothing creative ever grew from following set routine." i A senior coed attending the Col- I lege of St. Catherine (St. Paul, Minn.) says: "I like the country. I want to raise my children by myself and not have neighbors raising them." Students who answer that they are undecided on the question have j given little or no thought to the question and just don't feel like ' making a choice. Some students, like the Villanove University (Vil lanova, Pa.) sophomore who says: "It depends upon the location of my job," are generally willing to go where ever their work takes them. FASHION. .

W e iconoclast . . steve schultz All the fever over the "cultural desert" statements which were rife before Easter vacation ssems to have died down. Perhaps it is fortunate that we all had a week to reassess our intellectual posi tion, drink beer, and forget about the whole thing. These repeated remarks might have had the ef fect in time of making the student body think that nothing was going on at the U of N, and that just isn't true. In the class which I attended this morning (Contrary to popular opinion I do not spend all my time over a cup of coffee) we were taking stock of the oases in the so-called desert. For instance, be fore vacation an outstanding musi cal event took place in the Union ballroom when the choral setting of Shaprro's "Elegy to a Dead Soldier" was presented. The same Mr. Shapiro is editor of the Uni versity Press's "Prairie Schoon er," one of the most widely re spected little magazines in the country. This week will see two legiti mate theatre productions open in Lincoln, "The Remarkable Mr. Pennypacker" at the Community Playhouse and the long-awaited University Theatre presentation of Ernst Barlach's "The Dead Day." In connection with the latter show, Naomi Jackson one of the world's leading experts on the great Bar lach will be lecturing in Gallery B of the Morrill Hall galleries. (Thursday night. Drop around.) The same Morrill Hall houses an outstanding exhibition of modern art the year around. And the mu sic department's Madrigals will be singing Friday night. But if all these oases have been flowing with the clear clean cul tural water (How's that for phrase making?) why aren't we inun dated? The problem would seem to be one of valuesa problem of whether one should take his date to see Barlach or to drink beer. Well, my views on the value of culture are evident to whoever has read my past columns. Even Roger Henkle is aware that I have read Moby Dick although I take it that he thinks I should have waited till it became a "Reader's Digest" selection. But regardless of the eternal value of art, the fact remains that an afternoon at Morrill Hall or an evening at How ell Theatre is a peculiarly satisfy ing experience. Don't just stand there taking my word for it. One of the most disturbing trends on campus is that towr.rd constructing new yniveruty build ings in architectural styles that contrast violently with the exit ing structures. For instance, t':e addition to the girl's derm is q i .e nice, but it has nothing whatso ever to do with any building with in a couple of blocks. I'm an old Ellen Smith Hall man myself. Even with its w:m bricks and its gsomstrically jum bled windows, it's still my idea cf what a university building sho.:ld look like. Drips with atmosphere, you know what I mean?

A few lectures, a few seminars, but may I respectfully suggest that the academic world has not yet learned the full potential of television? . Why don't the colleges use television's vast capacity to dramatize, to amuse, to unshackle the imagination? Like, for example, this : Announcer: Howdy, folks.
