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. Million Collected 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 structional income. A good deal of the total income goes into auxiliary institutions such as the University hospital and research. Red Cross Chooses New Heads New Red Cross committee chair men have been announced by the executive committee, according to Carolyn Novotny, president.

" ' ML... tit t i vi- i" C Counev Sunday Jounui and Sur Union Breakfast Hosts Presidents Presidents of all 80 University organized houses and campus ac tivities have been invited to a "Presidents' Breakfast." to be held Saturday, at 9:00 a.m. in Par lors X and Y of the Union, accord ing to Duane Lake, Union director. The purpose of the Breakfast is to acquaint organization presidents with the facilities to be available in the new Union. Lake will explain the blueprints oi the new Union and the new ster eophonic sound for the music room will be demonstrated. All presidents are urged to at tend or to send someone in their places.

Orchestra Needs String Players Former high school hand mem bers are being sought by Emanuel Wishnow, conductor of the Univer-sit- Symphony Orchestra. The Symphony Orchestra needs more players in the string sec tion, said Wishnow. He said he hopes to locate students who are interested in music, but who have not tried out for the symphony orchestra. The string section includes vi olin, cello, viola and bass players. The need is especially great for violin and viola players, according to Wishnow. Those interested are to see Wish now in Room 212, Music Building. ion, the dorms and book stores. All this money, Soshnik stated, i independent of the direct instruc tional expense, but it is still a part of the total income. " Teachers Salaries Commenting on the fact that only SO of the tuition dollar went into teachers salaries, Soshnik stated that "I thought it was too little myself not too long ago. But you have to consider the overhead: the plant operation expense and Hie cost of registering the iu oem. Soshnik and Glen Sloan, Univer . y autiiicr, are now working on the 1957 Financial Report. "We are trying, this year, to present figures that can be taken for their iace values. If we suc ceed, perhaps we can say more I definitely where the tuition dollar ' goes," Sloan said. ! "The figures can make the Uni versity look extremely poor or ex ! treniely n-h, depending on h o w ! they are presented," Sloan added. iTins sar the financial report will lhave a slightly different form. Reservations At Howell Reservations for "The 014 Maid and the Thief" may be made at the Howell Theatre Box Offic fat the Temple build ing. The opera opens this eve ning and run through Saturday.

Last year's officers were: presi dent, Jan Shrader Mossman; vice president. Donna Sawvell and sec retary, Marilyn Waechter. Nebrashan Pomlers hs i ose "White space! Wtiite space!" ! the editor yelled. j The Daily Nebraskan needed something to make its appear ance fresher, its effect on the reader more pleasing. So the senior staff of the paper decided to change the lace of the type used in the produc tion of the paper from Tempo and Spartan to Bodoni. Th text books say, "Bodoni is a vigorous, clean, dignified, con servative, businesslike face." And that, according to the Rag editors, is the major recommen dation for a change of face. More over ,rtiey explain, the use of Bodoni type with while space is juite effective. Another change is in the offing for the Daily Nebraskan, too. The type which is now eight point on a nine point slug (ail very mystic journalistic terms! 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. Better use of pictures and an attempt to cover more accurately and more fully the events of the campus and the vicinity pertain ing to the University family are also some of the aims of the Daily Nebraskan during the com ing semester. And, needless to say, the Rag will welcome any suggestions from its readers.

Mary more students wished to buy books than sell them, Mrs. Martin said. "Those students who were for tunate enough to buy and sell books here saved a great deal of money," Mrs. Martin commented. '"Everybody has commented ' on the coilosal savings," she added. Job WeU Done "Alpha Phi Omega did a very excellent job in setting up the ex change," Mrs. Martin stated. In years to come the exchange will more than pay for itself time is needed for the organization's pro gram to catch on, she emphasized. Ken Tempero, member of Alpha Phi Omega and manager of the exchange, commented on the en thusiastic response of those stu dents who did utilize the exchange. Tempero recommended that a bigger room, located on the first floor of the Union, would solve some of the exchange's problems.

' a p t t The exchange is presently located in Room 313 of the Union. Another Try Helen Gourlay, president of the Student Council, sponsor of the ex change, stated that she was def initely in favor of "giving th project another try." Chairman of the Student Council Book Exchange Committee, Tom Neff, stated that the results of the current exchange show that "there is a large group of stu dent's who like to sit back and complain about high book prices but who are too lazy to take any initiative and do something about it." "The Alpha Phi Omegas should not be expected to support finan cially such an exchange along with their service, Neff said. The Student Council last semes ter, on a recommendation from a special committee, voted to turn the exchange over to Alpha Phi Omega. Under Council stipulations the fraternity will give a report concerning results of the ventur sometime in the near future. participants will draw two speak ing subjects on the general sub jects and will choose one on which to speak.
