enate Fasses Student Trih 1 Charter mia By Marilyn Coffey Staff Writer The proposed Student Tribunal was approved with one minor amendment Tues day by the Faculty Senate. J. P. Colbert, dean of stu dent affairs, presenting the Tribunal to the Senate, said, "This tribunal Is, we think, a step forward in student self-government." Chancellor Clifford Hardin, after the Tribunal had been approved, commented, "The mood of the Faculty Senate seems to be that this is a move initiated by students expressing a willingness to accept further responsibility and the Senate is willing to accept such a move." Colbert Colbert said, "I think it Is a very forward step in stu dent government, in the gen eral, welfare of the Univer sity as an adult institution of higher education and in the spirit of co-operation between the students and the instruc tional staff." The Tribunal Charter will be returned to the Student Council and the student body for a second time for ap proval or disapproval of the amendment by the Senate. The amendment added "Acting with the consent of the Faculty Senate" to Ar ticle VII, Section 2 of the Charter which read, "Thli Charter can be amended only by the Board of Regents up on recommendation of t h e University Faculty Senate Committee on Student Af fairs." During the discussion, the provision for faculty judges was brought to the attention of the Senate by Raymond Dein, professor of account ing. The Charter stated that the proposed Tribunal should have "two faculty judges who are members of the Faculty Senate." Faculty Voting Dein questioned accepting a policy of faculty members voting with students. He said, "It seems to me highly un wise to get into the position of voting for or against stu dents." Since recommendations by the proposed Tribunal would be subject to the final deci sion of the dean of student affairs, it is possible that the dean might reverse the de cision of the faculty judges. Any embarrassment result ing from such a reversal CGu'.d be avoided, indicated Colbert, by the acceptance of objective attitudes by the Judges, A move by James Miller Jr., chairman of the English department, that the Faculty Senat' strike the phrase Fac ulty Judges whenever it ap pears in the charter and sub stitute Faculty Advisors was defeated. Colbert cited as the types of cases that might conceiv ably come before the Tribun al as those involving liquor, plagiarism, cribbing and gen eral student conduct. I! .'. H j4 ft ... - r 1 ? 1 Mi i i ' r f - J Colbert Hardin Graduation Beckons Tribunal N. U. Tribunal, University senior at large, took another step down the graduation aisle yesterday afternoon. Tri bunal passed its semester exam with flying colors. After four long years at the University, Tribunal is indeed a senior. But will he graduate? The final exam still remains the approval of his degree by the Board of Regents. Tribunal has been a good student and the University administration has respected him for this fact and also for his character and personality. As an underclassman, Tri bunal, like anyone here at the University underwent a lot of study. Many of his en emys considered him a cheat he copied from many of his comrades at other institu tions. One of his best friends is going to Stanford University. This buddy, S.U. Tribunal, is on the national honor roll according to many. N.U. has always looked upon the more educated S. U, (now in his 18th year at college) as an idol, and has tried to follow his ways. Tribunal scholarship is nothing to scoff at either. In a test at the end of the fall semester it got 1,428 ' ques tions right out of 1,845 plac ing it well above University average. Tribunal's friends are look ing forward to his quick graduation.

Slip Stick Sessions Scheduled It has been said that an engineer has two brains one in his head, and one that he straps to his belt his slide rule. Several years ago, the En gineering Mechanics depart ment discontinued teaching the use of the slide rule in beginning drawing classes, thus leaving young engineers to learn the secrets of the slip-stick elsewhere. Sigma Tau To remedy this, Sigma Tau, engineering honorary, decid ed to give lessons in t h e slide rule. Circulars were sent around, and 198 persons indicated interest, according to John Ficke, committee member. The classes will last about 6 weeks, with a one hour ses sion each week, Ficke sail. Six sections are scheduled. Registration is still open for these classes. The sec tions are not restricted to en gineering students. "If someone in Teachers College wants to attend, for example, they are welcome," Ficke commented. No Slide Rule He added that persons who attend the classes do not have to own a slide rule. Sig ma Tau will try to arrange for those who do not have slip-sticks to borrow one, he said. No fees are charged for these classes, and no credit is given for them, he added. One hour sessions are scheduled at 4, 5 and 7 p.m. on Mondays, at 4 and 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and at 5 p.m. on Thursdays. Classes will be held in 202 Stout, .

Underground Groups Remain Extra Legal Activities Include Pi Xi, Red Dots, TNE's By GARY RODGERS Copy Editor Anyone for sub rosas? A sub rosa, in the dictionary of the University of Nebras ka administrators, is t h e term applied to various se cret campus societies. They include the Pi Xis, TNEs (Theta Nu Epsilon) and Red Dots. These organizations have prevailed on the NU cam pus for many years, though the University administra tion has tried their darn est to abolish therm. The undercover organiza tions are banned by a board of regents because of their "secrecy." Dismissal of any student found to be a mem ber is mandatory, accord ing to the regulations. The TNEs were "disband ed" in 1951 when four mem bers were caught in acts of vandalism. At this time the society agreed, in sworn statements, to dissolve per manently in return for the re-admittance of the f o u r suspended brothers.

NU Cow Cops Bovine Quality Bout A registered Holstein cow owned by the University was named "Cornhusker Cow of the Year" Tuesday night at the Nebraska State Dairy man's A s - sociation an- t nual meet- , , ing. The cow, U Found Tris tan Isis 318- Tristan Isis 2282, was selected for her outstanding production and type as well as for her ability to reproduce off spring with these same quali ties. The award is given an nually by the Nebraska Inter-Breed Dairy Council as part of a program to recog nize great cows. She is the daughter of the "Cornhusker Cow of the Year" in 1957. Tristan Isis has completed five lactations which average 588.8 pounds of butterfat. Her daughters average 632, 580, and 625 pounds of butterfat. Two sons have been sold for breeding purposes but are not, as yet, proven. Two University cows also placed first and third respec t i v e 1 y in the "Cornhusker Dams of Production Contest". to disappear. Though occa sionally campus leaders get letters of congratulations marked with the familiar symbol on their election or appointment to some cam pus office, this organization has, it seems, faded away. In its place has sprung the Pi Xis. Started in 1954, the Pi Xis have for their symbol a gold snake with a red dot in the middle of its head, all mounted on a shield of blue enamel. In 1956 two students were exposed as alleged mem bers of Pi Xi and were ex pelled for their underground activities. They were caught early one morning painting on sidewalks on fraternity row. The Pi Xis now meet weekly on Wednesday nights in hotel and motel rooms. Throughout the year they are generally quite peace ful; that is, until just be fore the homecoming cele bration and before either Engineers' day or Ivy Day. Special Police Special men are employed by the University police force each year on these occasions to cope with these organizations. But when Ivy Day rolls around, the Pi Xis inevitably come out to ft t " Ncpalese Concert Sunday Lentz Incorporates East With West A piece based on Nepalesa folk tunes heard by Dr. Don ald Lentz on his trip to the Orient last spring in search of primitive Hindu, Thai, and Indonesia music will be among the numbers featured Sunday afternoon at the an nual Symphonic Band con cert. The program will begin at 3 p.m. in the Student Union ballroom. The public is in vited to attend, and there is no admission charge. Western Adaptation Orlan Thomas, a Lincoln graduate student, will play the Nepalese melodies adapt ed by Conductor Lentz to Western notation and tonality on the English Horn, accom panied by a woodwind en semble. Also featured in the concert as a soloist will be Wesley Reist of Lincoln, instructor of music, who will play Con certo in E Flat for Clarinet, by von Weber. , Professor Lentz said he heard one of the Nepalese melodies early one morning sung by a street singer; the other, he said, was chanted by an old man sitting in the doorway of his home high in the Himalayas to a small child sitting at his feet. First Performance This is the first perform ance of his attempt to inte grate into American music the rhythms and scale sys tem of Oriental music. Other numbers on the pro gram include: Manzoni Requiem, by Verdi; Zanoni, by Creston; Second Hungari an Rhapsody, by Liszt; Hammersmith, by Hoist; and Little Suite from the Opera, Comedy on the Bridge, by Martinu.

The pranks cost the Uni versity about $150 annually. During 1947 and 1948, how ever, the damage ran to $500. At that time some of the paint ate so deeply into the University memorial columns that it could never be removed. During the year, the Pi Xis settle down to such placid activities as print ing their Pixie Press a document which "discloses" the weaknesses of many University administrators and campus organizations and peaceful little drinking parties with their friends the Red Dots. The Red Dots, under ground women's group, join in the paintig expeditions and leave little "red dots" in the same places the Pi Xis leave their letters and symbols. Many prominent Lincoln and state citizens are re putedly alumni of these "no torious" societies to which undegrariuate members are reportedly selected for their ''leadership" ability.
