Tuition Plays Vital Financial Role
Contrary to the opinions of many
disgruntled University studen's
who have recently paid second
semester fees, tuition income plays
a vital role in the maintenance
of the University.
Generally fifty to sixty per cent
of the student's tuition dollar goes
into instructional expenses accord
ing to Soshnik. Tuition money,
pooled with state public appropri
ations, goes into four major in
stltutions; administration, li
braries, plant operation and in
struction. "We cannot make a definite
breakdown due to the many dif
ferent types of expenses," Soshnik
elated in an interview Tuesday.
In 1956, tuition income came to
a little over one million three hun
dred thousand dollars. This is ap
proximately one eighteenth of the
total income of the University and
one tenth of the general and in
A good deal of the total income
goes into auxiliary institutions

j The Daily Nebraskan needed
something to make its appear

So the senior staff of the paper
decided to change the lace of
the type used in the produc

and Spartan to Bodoni.
Th text books say, "Bodoni is
a vigorous, clean, dignified, con
servative, businesslike face."
And that, according to the Rag

for the Daily Nebraskan, too.
The type which is now eight

will soon become nine point on
a nine-and-a-half point base.
Since, in effect, this means the
type will be larger it should be
easier to read.

attempt to cover more accurately
