University Is Willing
To Pave Selleck Lot
St uient CounMWffmg
Board aofHiced-W.edjigsxJ
that the University'' is" 'willing
to pave Selleck parking lot.
The plans have been drawn
for this improvement. At the
present time, however, the
University lacks the neces
sary funds for the paving of
the lot. Cost was estimated at
Cut Capacity
Roy Neil, parking board
member, told the Council the
paving project would cut each
lot's capacity by 50 cars since
the paving plans call for en
larged car parking spaces to
enable cars to be parked more
Due to the present lack of
funds, parking permits which
are now issued by the Uni
versity for one dollar would

have to be issued at five dol
lars or more for money to
float a bond issue, Neil said.
If the fees were raised for
the bond issue, then the Uni
versity would be unable to
issue an excess of permits, he
50 Excess
. The University now is
sues permits in excess of 50
of the total parking spaces
available. This termination
of excess issuance would cut
the University revenue from
parking fees since a parking
space would have to be "guar
anteed" for a $5 parking fee,
he added.
The problem of priority for
parking spaces in the Selleck
lot is also to be considered
with the increase In parking
fees, should the increase be
come a reality, Neil Stated.
Spring Day, Union Party
To Continue Collaboration
The question of coordination
of Spring Day and the an
nual Student Union birthday
party was discussed by the
Student Council Wednesday.
Sue Carkoski, member of
th Student. Union activities
committee, came before the
Council with the question of
coordination between Spring
Day and the annual Student
Union birthday party.
Miss Carkoski told the
Council that the E-Week ban
quet committee had ap
proached the Union manage
ment about the possibility of
holding its annual dinner
dance in the Student Union.
It was also stated that Spring
Day, the Union birthday party
and the E-Week dinner and
dance were all scheduled for
April 2.
E-Week Conflict
The E-Week dinner-dance
would require the Ballroom
for the dinner, which would
be served to approximately
400 people, and the Pan
American Room for the dance
which would follow.
The question posed was
whether or not the Student
Council, which governs the
Spring Day committee,
thought the Union should ac
cept this E-Week proposal If
offered formally.
This question was pre
sented to determine the pro
bability of the Council wish
ing to continue the unofficial
collaboration of the birthday
party and Spring Day.
In the past, Spring Day has
terminated at 6 p.m. and the
Union birthday party has be
gun shortly thereafter, thus
making Spring Day into an
all day event. The activities
committee wished to know if
the Council wanted to con
tinue this collaboration.
John Hoerner then moved
that the Spring Day commit-
work with the Uuon on
their party in a cooperative
manner so as to. benefit both.
The motion passed.
The Union activities com
mittee also wished to know
if the entire Union should be
left ooen for the campus-wide
nartv or if two of the major
rooms should be tied up with
a single college. A motion
was then made by Don
Gable that the Council rec
ommend the party be carried
on in the way scheduled with
out regard to the E-Week
Banquet. The motion was de
. niscussion Advised
' The members of the Stu
dent Council felt that it must
widatp onlv aaainst inter
ference with its Spring Day
committee and it recom
mended that the Union com
mittee discuss the matter and
Godbey stated that one
, thought in the attempt at
standardization was to require
ail activities to check in their
records to the Student Coun
cil every summer.
He exDlained that the Uni
versity SfKS have enough
parsing spaces on me campus
to supply ample parking fa
cilities. The other student
parking lot is the Elgin lot.
One suggestion would place
the University freshmen park
ing facilities at Elgin and
permit the other three classes
to use the Selleck lot. Other
suggestions have also been
considered Neal noted.'
Building Rejected
A parking building occupy
ing the present Selleck lot
was considered, but the idea
was rejected due to the pro
hibitive cost. Parking meters
placed in the Selleck lot to
help defray the cost of paving
the lot were also considered
and rejected, he added.
Neil stated that there were
no plans' for any of the pres
ent parking lots, other than
continued use for parking. In
answer to a question about
future removal of all cars
from the campus proper, he
said that all University build
ing would take place to the
east of the campus.
Other plans, he said, call
for eventually closing the
streets running along the
south side of Andrews and
Burnett Halls between 13th
and 14th and the street run
ning along the north side of
Love Memorial Library be
tween 13th and 14th.
The present faculty parking
lots would then be paved and
the small mall would be ex
tended across the area be
tween Andrews and Burnett
Halls and Love Library, he
Carl Donaldson, University
business manager, has con
sented to look over a plan to
be presented by the Council
Parking Board along with oth
er parking studies. He will
then make recommendations
to the University.
The Council would hold
these records over the sum
mer and would examine
them. Activities would make
better records if they knew
the Council would review
them.he said. ,
The Council would work
with the administration to en
force such a statute and the
judiciary committee would
deal with violators through au
thority given them in the
council constitution.
Final Exams
Don Gable, finals commit
tee chairman, submitted a
sample schedule of final
exams for the first semester
of the 1960-61 school year.
Gable drew up a tentative
schedule to present to the
Faculty Senate sub-committee
on tmai exams along witn
the schedule which will be
submitted by the Registrar's
office for approval in March.
The Council reviewed the
schedule and directed Gable
to submit it to the Faculty
Senate sub-committee.

of .Mathis' cancellation at
1:30 p.m. Sunday, when Don
Romeo o f Romeo-Hammond
Productions in Omaha,
through whom Cobs was work
ing, contacted him.
Monday morning Kooper
flew to Chicago with Ham
mond to talk to Robert Eh
lert, Mathis' agent, who rep-1
resents General Artist Cor
poration. He told Ehlert that all
arrangements for the Wednes
day show, including chartered
buses and ticket sales had
been made.
Seven Appearances
They were told by Ehlert
seven college appearances
and that he had decided that
he only wanted to go through
with two, these being at
Northwestern University and
Michigan University.
Cancelled along with Ne
braska were Ohio State which
had built its whole Greek
Week around Mathis' ap
pearance, Michigan State,
Missouri and Southern Illi
nois. Mathis is now appearing
at the Cdcoanut Grove on the
West Coast, Kooper said, and
will open in Las Vegas on
Feb. 17.
Northwestern Tonight
He is scheduled to appear
tonight at Northwestern and
tomorrow night at Michigan,
Kooper added.
Don Horton, who had booked
Mathis at Ohio State, f'was
very enraged" by the can
cellation, Kooper said, and
sent out 60,000 copies of a
release chiding Mathis for bis
Kooper said, "we even went
so far as to call Mathis or
his manager, Mrs. Helen
Noga. We were referred to
her attorney, Morton Farber,
in. New . York,, who said he f
tried everything within his
power to change her mind,
but she still refused," he
'Rest Up'
Only an Act of God could
enable Mathis to break his
engagement, Kooper said.
An act of God, according to '
Kooper, could mean illness,
death or the weather. It has
never been detined in court,
he said.
"It was implied that Mathis
was using the time between
the Michigan date and his
opening in Las Vegas to rest
up," Kooper added.
"What really irked every
body," he continued, "w a s
that we couldn't understand
why he decided to play two
college dates and not the
other five.
"Conceivably, we could
collect damages by filing a
law suit," Kooper explained.
"However," he added, "our
(Corn Cobs) reason for bring
ing Mathis here was not to
make money but to have a
major attraction at the Uni
versity. "We regret that this has
happened," he concluded,
"but it was beyond our con
trol." Tickets will be refunded un
til Feb. 13, he said.
