Budget for the 1960 sum mer sessions increased to $358,276 mainly due to salary adjustments. Director Frank E. Sorenson said other fac tors causing the increase in clude a change in the ani mal husbandry program from a four to an eight week course and additional courses in anthropology. More Pay Hardin pointed out that a previous maximum summer pay of $1,500 for summer pro fessors made it difficult to obtain outside professors and that the new maximum would be $1,700. He also noted that more and more students are attend ing school the year -round and said, "This should have the effect of lessening peak of enrollment and using fa cilities to the utmost." Dean of Faculties Adam Breckenridge also noted re cent figures which show more summer school students are completing work on degrees rather than working to ful fill teaching certificates. Fellowship Increase Regents also took action Saturday to increase their Graduate Fellowships from $1,500 to $2,000. Chancellor Hardin, who pointed out that the additional funds will come from endow ment funds of the University such as the Woodrow Wilson Foundation and not from taxes, told Regents, "With the old rate we couldn't get top students to apply. They could get more elsewhere." He pointed out that the new sum would make the fellowships the .best that the University has to offer gradu ates, but "behind what many other institutions have." McMaster Resigns In other action, the Board approved the resignation of Howard M. McMaster, part time associate professor, de partment of civil engineering. Hardin said, "McMaster feels he can no longer afford to give us part-time service." NU Receives J 26 Defense Scholarships The University will receive 26 National Fellowships in six graduate areas this year, an increase of 16 over those re ceived last year. The 16 additional fellow ships are valued at more titan $100,000. According to Dean John Weaver of the CJraduate College, such a fellowship is normally a three-yearawsrd. The department which re ceived the grants are eco nomics, political science, 'en tomology, physics and busi ness organization. Dean Weaver, advises all persons interested in applying for a fellowship to obtain their application forms as soon as possible. The University, he said, must submit its nomina tions for the Fellowships to the U.S. Office of Education by March 5. K By Jacque Janecek Educated persons with a sense of responsibility, not legislation, are the real an swer to problems in labor un ions, according to Robert Kennedy. The 32-yearold brother of Democratic presidential hope ful Sen. Jack Kennedy of Massachusetts and former counsel for the McClellan la bor investigations committee told students and adults at a session in the Union Ballroom Saturday morning: "You have an obligation to take an interest in schools, laws and corruption. You cant leave it to George. That kind of people (he cited criminal and gangster rates in Teamsters Union echelons) will run the coun try if you don't assume re sponsibility. And you can be- Primary Win Could Help Nationwide A successful try in the Ne braska primary could help Sen. Jack Kennedy's bid for the presidency throughout the whole Midwest, his younger brother thinks. "A win here would speak for more than Nebraska," he said. Robert Kennedy told a Daily Nebraskan reporter Sat urday, "I'm terribly im pressed with the enthusiasm here and I'm sure my brother will seriously consider enter ing the primary in April." The younger Kennedy added that enthusiasm he found here is "gratifying, since we're coming from the East." He said his brother plans to enter five or six primaries. Bob Gets YD Card Bob Kennedy was made a lifetime member of the Uni versity" Young Democrats at the Kennedy for President meeting Saturday afternoon.

Hoffa To Fan? The young lawyer, who also made headlines when he ao Jimmy Hoffa of gangsterism on the Jack Paar television show this falL said he ex pects Hoffa to be "out" in the next three months. Later asked to qualify hi statement, Kennedy added, "It is my belief that If he is not out in a year, at least major swps iu dc uiruciwj to oust him from the Team sters' Union." Kennedy also said he ex pects much corruption in tha Hoffa union to fall, once he is out of office. He noted that the head of the transportation union has more than 300 attorneys "who do nothing more than try t keep Hoffa in office", and that any move to oust him -H 1 J PFl U wiu oe aiincuu. 'Law Breakdown' So far no jury has been unable to convict him and Kennedy blames a "b r e a k down in much local law en forcement and politics." Kennedy also cited tha "lack of democratic proce dures" and instances of "or ganized crime" in the Team sters Union. He said many officials in the Union are elected in il legal elections and by un qualified voters. The graduate of Harvard and Virgin: law school told how his committee found con victed . criminals in high Teamsters positions. Second Rank Kennedy maintained that the Teamsters rank second, only to the-Federal govern ment in influence in this country due to their control over transportation. "'Because of this great pr-nnnmir control. Teamsters have attracted gangsters and hoodlums," he said. He said the McClellan com mittee proved 15 top officials in Detroit had records for armed robbery, arson and other major crimes. Some had been charged with mur der. 'No Regard' "These criminals have no regard for the Union, but work so that employers will give business to their (the criminals') friends." he said. He noted arson, pickets and other violences instigated by the "gangsters and hood lums." Kennedy also accused man agement of much corruption in labor today. "Ninety per cent of the deals wouldn't have been pos sible without their coopera tion," he said. He charged that they often make deals to gain economic advantages over other competition. Later, answering a Ques tion why management had not been called to explain their relations, the boyish looking investigator blamed news media. . , Little Attention He said his committee studied illegal deals made by firms, but that this phase of their work received "little at tention from the press." v No Bar Association even' management itself has tried to remedy the situation, Kennedy said. He commended the AFL-CIO for its efforts to stop management deals. Kennedy also commented on the inrant L.anarum-uru- fin labor bill and told listen ers he thought it would prove itself better in a year. No 'End-All' He noted the bill had hail a 9Q-day provision and had actually been in operation only a little over two months. "I will not say it is the end-all of all labor bills. Kennedy concluded. Don Geis, president of uni versity Young Democrats, in troduced the younger brother of the presidential candidate who had said earlier his pri mary reason for visrang Ne braska was to" obtain a re port on the outlook for a suc cessful Kennedy bid in the April primaries. 1 Sen. Kennedv already has announced he will enter, the New Hampshire prraary this month. He plans to visit Nebraska Jan. 27 and is expected to announce his decision whe ther to run here then. He vember.
