By Jacque Janecek Student fees do not subsi dize income-producing areas in the Student Union, Allen Bennett; director, said Thurs day. They operate on a strict profit and loss basis, he add ed. Bennett told the Daily Ne braskan he would like to clear up "misconceptions among student and faculty" about the use of the fees to operate the Union. He said many students seem to believe the Union can offer food services and serv ices from other income pro ducing areas at lower prices since they had already paid for them in fees. Kosmet Klub Will Hire Pro Director for Show By Mike Milroy Participation in the Kos met Klub Fall Show this year is expected to be much greater than that of a year ago due to the favorable changes instituted by the Klub. One of the most dynamic changes for the fall show this year will be the presence of a professional director hired by the Kosmet Klub to help Candidates Announced For Homecoming Title Twenty-eight coeds have been selected by organized houses and the Independent Women's Association to com pete for the title of Home coming Queen.

Exception Made A meeting between four graduate assistants and Uni versity rnmntroller Dr. Jos eph Soshnik on the subject oi recent cnanges in me sys tem of paying assistants has resulted in .the following ac tion: The comptroller's office "has made exceptions to the policy for the four students in question," Dr. Soshnik said. Sociology Assistants The students who had voiced the complaint are Jerry Behringer, Laurence Falk, Phil Hayes and Ken neth Kinman, all graduate as sistants in the department of sociology. They complained that since they were not notified of the change before they renewed "This is not true," Bennett emphasized. "No student fees are in vested in these departments other than to purchase orig inal equipment," He noted that of the $11 fee per semes ter, $6.50 is paid per semes ter to finish the $1.3 million bond for the new addition. Bennett estimated this could be paid in 16 to 20 years, depending on enrollment. Bennett said the remaining $4.50 of the $11 fees goes into the Union Enterprise Account and this totals roughly $75,000 per year. Finances Upkeep Bennett said this "contribu tion by the students" finances I maintenance and upkeep of fraternities iron out script problems. The director will also advise on construction of sets for the five finalists. TV. Theme The director will act sep arately from the Kosmet Klub and will be concerned with directing a show based! on the theme of original or imaginary television shows. Kosmet Klub active members The 10 will be announced at a pep rally Oct. 16. On Monday, Oct. 19, the student body will vote on the finalists to select the queen and two attendants. The board will base its de cisions by using a point sys tem. There will be 10 possible points each for scholarship, leadership, service to the Uni versity, campus loyalty, school spirit, poise and gen eral appearance and personal ity. Announcement of the queen and her attendants will be made at the pep rally Oct. 29, rather than at the game as has been done in the past. The queen then will be hon ored at a luncheon, the Nebraska-Oklahoma football game and the annual Home coming Dance. Geis Heads Democrats Members of the Young Democrats association elect ed Don Geis as chairman for the coming year at their Wednesday meeting. Other elected officers were John Kerwin, first vice chair man; Renny Ashleman, sec ond vice chairman; Barbara Langhouser, recording secre tary; John Schroeder, corres ponding secretary; and Bob Schrepf, treasurer. The Young Democrats is a service organization which promotes its members to meet their political leaders and discuss the latest topics of local and national import ance. or accepted their assistant ship, that the University should not have altered the system of. the graduate stu dent payroll. "While such a schedule cre ates obvious hardships for the married student with a fam ily, even the single person is burdened with unnecessary financial problems," they said. Summer Change The change was made this past summer. It consisted of revising the method of pay ments of a graduate stipend so that one-half of the stipend will be paid to the student each semester. Since there are five months In the first semester, this means that monthly payments the first semester will be the building, furnishing, staff salaries, janitorial supplies, utilities, public liability insur ance, replacement and repair of furniture, office supplies and free public-service areas. "It pays for dance band wages, convocations, Sunday night movies, art displays, and the general cultural as pects of both the city and Ag Unions," the director added. He also noted that the en tire student activities budget comes from this fund $8,900 for city campus activities and $2,900 for agriculture campus activities. 'Non-Profit' Income producing areas must prove themselves self sustaining, according to the will assist the director, who has yet to be named. Clark Nelson, Chairman of the Fall Show, said that "fraternities have somewhat of a free hand in writing their skits, although they will have to keep them clean. Pro priety and continuity will also enter into the selection of scripts." Rough drafts of the en trants skits have to be sub mitted by Oct. 6 and the final drafts must be in by Oct. 20. Tryouts will be Nov. 24. Tryouts this year are sched uled to take place six weeks after Homecoming festivities to avoid the conflicts and complications encountered by close scheduling last year. Judges for the Fall show will consist of men connected with television, men con nected with the theatre and the regular Administration members. 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. The winners will receive a trophy and publicity in the IFC Rush Book and they also will have a page in the Corn husker. In addition, there will be the publicity by and for the Kosmet Klub and their production. A committee on the selec tion of the Prince Kosmet and the Nebraska Sweetheart is studying changes in con nection with these selections, which will also add to the Fall Revue. A Spring Kosmet Klub show has been scheduled this year and the dates have been tentatively set. The show has not been chosen yet, but will be a Broadway production which was a hit or a near hit. A - professional director will also be hired to act in a similar capacity as the direc tor of the Fall Revue. in Assistant Pay lower than in the four-months second semester. Previously, the student was paid an equal amount of the stipend each month. This meant that a student would have been paid more than half of his stipend after com pleting only half of the year's work. Overpayments If he left at the end of the first semester, he would have been overpaid. Dr. Soshnik pointed out, and the comp troller's 'office would have to locate him and get the over payment back from him. the four students in ques tion said the new plan was vide an 'incentive' to encour age students to return for the second semester." Soshnik denied that the Union constitution. Bennett says this means "non-profit." They purchase all raw prod ucts, pay for all the labor in volved in their departments, pay their own share of heat, lights, gas and finance their own insurance. They also pro vide workmen's compensa tion, social security, sick leave and depreciate all equipment on the usual tax base. Bennett said after all this is done, they must use any profit to provide a reserve to replace all present operat ing equipment. In effect, the only differ ence between these income producing areas and down town businesses is that the Union pays no taxes as a branch of the state institu tion, he said. Price Scale "The Union could not in good conscience undersell downtown businesses," Ben nett explained. He added the Unioa Board of Managers thought they had arrived at a "suitable price scale to help all departments to ac complish their purposes." From 1954 until the spring of 1958, food services re turned one half of one per cent of its profits back into the Union reinvestment fund, the auditor's books show. Ca tering alone has advanced $34,075.41 to the fund in the past 21 years. Speaking for the Board of Managers, Bennett ex plained, after considerable consultation, they have direct ed management that its prime obligation in operation of the Nebraska Union is to provide facilities desired by the stu dent, to operate them effec tively and efficiently, and to discharge services request ed. "But more important is that the investment in furniture and fixtures be maintained so that the current' utility to present student can be kept intact." Equipment replacement "We also intend to' provide funds against ultimate re replacement of heavy equipment in the future," he continued. Apologizing for some recent criticism of services he add ed, "Our staff would like to apologize to some groups who have been unhappy with our service the past three weeks." "We are (stepping into a new operation, doubling our services, and training a near ly complete new staff," he continued. "We can't ask for giveness, but will ask toler ance until the new building and facilities are in complete operation." NU-Oregon Slate Ticket Sales Lag Ticket sales for the NU Oregon State football game here Saturday are lagging somewhat due to the recent rainy weather, according to A. J. Lewandowski, Athletic Business Manager. A sell-out crowd is not ex pected, but Thursday esti mates set the expected at tendance at 30,000. Lewan dowski said that there still is ample seating accommo dations for the remaining games, but these seats are located around the edges. comptroller's office had any ulterior motive in mind when they revised the pay roll schedule. He added that he was sorry if the students had not re ceived notice of the change. Communication Problem "I certainly can't blame them for being disturbed over the problem of communica tion with them, but we quar rel with their decision as to what our motives were," h said. Dr. Soshnik said Thursday, "Apparently these students had no prior information con cerning the change and have encountered personal hard ships. Arrangements have been agreed upon to avoid ; the problem of over- payment." i 1 - 4 m -wi X JC. .
