Miles of the Student Activi

Ivy Day, Mrs. Miles re
ceived an unprecedented
award "from the students
and campus organizations,"
which read "A Certificate
of Appreciation for your
unselfish use of time, work
and effort in working with
the student organizations
of the University of Ne
braska." The award was presented
to Mrs. Miles by Jerry
Sellentin, business manager
of the Daily Nebraskan.
This was a "one-of-a-kind'.'
award, never before
Mrs. Miles is the smiling
woman in the administra
tion office labeled "Student
Loans and Student Activi

cate of Appreciation, she
was awarded an $80 gift
"I don't know who was
responsible for it," she said,
"but I thank everybody and
all the organizations. It's
really the nicest thing that
ever happened to me!"
In her work with over
150 student accounts from
most of the campus clubs
and activities who use the
office like a bank, she
handles over $350,000 a year.
She has processed over
27,000 checks in six years
of working for the Univer
sity. But this is only part of
her service to the clubs.

"Since we have all the
money, we have to pay all
the bills," she laughed.
And pay them she does,
sometimes writing over $30,-

Advisor and Helper
She also acts as advisor
and helper to new treasur
ers. "The work Is so varied,
1 really get to know who's
doing what on campus."
Mrs. Miles is very famil
iar with the financial prob
lems of the organizations,
because she handles their
budgets. The proposed bud
gets must be submitted for
the office's approval, then
the actual budget checked
at the end of the year.
Student Loans
The office also handles
student loans and she often
talks over money problems
with the students.
"Sometimes it helps them
a lot just to talk their prob
lems over."
In her contacts with so
many students she said she
couldn't understand why so
many people "ran down"
the present generation. "I
think it should be the other
way around." Then glanc
ing around the office, she
added, "I enjoy working
with them very much."
Next the ballots are sorted
by college.
A third machine, an elec
tronic calculator adds the total
number of votes on sach bal

are filled out correctly.
This machine rejects all bal
