Bennett estimated this could
be paid in 16 to 20 years,
depending on enrollment.
Bennett said the remaining

New Labor
Another innovation by the
Kosmet Klub will come in the
form of new labor for the
workers of the club. These
workers will construct the
sets of the five finalists for
this years' show. In the past,
individual houses had to con
struct their sets.
Kosmet Klub members said
they feel the offer of ready
made sets will induce more
houses to participate and be
conducive to skits of h i g-h
quality since members of the
skits may use all their time
to practice.

trophy and publicity in the

Bennett said after all this

to replace all present operat

In effect, the only differ

town businesses is that the
Union pays no taxes as a
branch of the state institu

Price Scale
"The Union could not in
good conscience undersell
downtown businesses," Ben

Unioa Board of Managers
thought they had arrived at
a "suitable price scale to
help all departments to ac

$34,075.41 to the fund in the
past 21 years.
Speaking for the Board of
Managers, Bennett ex

obligation in operation of the
Nebraska Union is to provide
facilities desired by the stu
