Prof Lauds Students, NU "The University's firm posi tion is great reassurance that the highest standards of aca d e m I c freedom are to be maintained," Merton Bern stein told the Daily Nebras kan. "As an individual I w a s only part of the issue, but it was difficult not to feel like William Tell's son. "The reaction of Nebras kans was most heartening. Particularly gratifying were the stands taken by the Lin coln Star and Journal, by the Dally Nebraskan, and stu dents, especially in the Col lege of Law. Their actions and statements demonstrate that students today have all the fibre of earlier generations. "My wife and I are grate ful for all the f r i e n d s we learned we have. We want I publicly to say "thank you."."

Lightning Strikes :Sig Alph House The only damage to proper ty on the campus during the storm Sunday was reported by the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house. Lightning struck their chim ney and tore the top half off. Several members commented tnat it sounded like a bomb had been thrown into the house. The amount of damage was not immediately determined. By Doug McCartney ' Banker, accountant, ad visor, recorder and consult ant. These are just a few of the duties of Lucille Miles of the Student Activi ties Office. 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. "One-of-a-Kind" This was a "one-of-a-kind'.' award, never before given. Mrs. Miles is the smiling woman in the administra tion office labeled "Student Loans and Student Activi ties." Along with the Certifi cate of Appreciation, she was awarded an $80 gift certificate. "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. Kessler Takes Part of Mildred "Since we have all the money, we have to pay all the bills," she laughed. And pay them she does, sometimes writing over $30,- 000 a month in checks. The office also keeps a permanent record of all transactions. 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 lot to be sure that the ballots are filled out correctly. This machine rejects all bal lots which voted for the wrong number of students. The fourth machine, a sta tistical sorter tabulate the number of votes given each candidate and prints the re sults. Total time elapsed, Vk hours.
