Big Eight Student Council Convention
elegates Trade Ideas
On Spirit, Politics, Culture
The eight topics of dis
cussion at the Big Eight
Student Government con
ference at Kansas State
University December 29 and
30 were reported to the Stu
dent Council by Jack Muck,
Nebraska delegate.
The eight points on which
the delegates shared their
ideas were: school spirit,
student influence on cam
pus policy, student govern
ment, high school visitation,
cultural development, col
lege newspapers, political
parties and campaigns, and
student wages and dis
counts. Suggested in the discus
sion on school spirit were
having fewer numbers of
pep rallies in order that the
remaining ones be more
effective and having a cen
tral display area for all uni
versity trophies.
Campus Policy
Discussions revealed that
Nebraska was considerably
above average in student
influence on campus policy.
The conference suggested
that student councils devel
op their present powers and
not try to fight the adminis
tration for new powers.
The student government
meeting revealed that on
some campuses the entire
student body elects the
president of the student

Each council agreed to
examine itself carefully to
determine whether or not it
was truly representative of
the student body.
Nebraska was the unques
tioned leader of the discus
sion as far as high school
visits to the campus were
concerned. Other schools
occasionally sent student
council members to visit
with high school seniors but
not much else was done. It
was the opinion of the con
ference that these visita

of the council but should be
handled by the university

symposium ran into a bit
of difficulty defining culture
according to Muck. They
decided that university con
vocations were definitely
good but new ways to en

were needed.
Some colleges brought big
name music groups to the
campus as a money mak
ing proposition along with
cultural improvement. They
usually lost money on these
ventures, Muck said.
