Editorial Comments:
Constitution Wording
Causes Solicitation Question
Article II of the All University Fund
constitution states that "No organization
may be permitted to solicit for funds from
the total student body of the campus with
out the permission and approval of AUF."
This statement has always seemed clear
enough for the last five years of the con
stitution's existence. On April 7, the mean
ing of this clause became such an issue
that AUF took the startling step of intro
ducing an executive session into its usu
ally staid run of meetings.
The question seems to be this: Does
AUF approval mean that it approves of
the requested permission to canvass or
does It mean that AUF has an obligation
to endorse a drive if it permits that drive?
A simple consideration that one of the
reasons for AUF's existence is that it pro
tects the campus from unwanted or too
numerous canvasses in return for its
campus-wide monopoly on solicitations
demonstrates clearly that the distinction is
more than a mere draftsman's quibble.
It is certainly incongruous that AUF at
the first of every drive year takes elabor
ate precautions, polls and self-surveys be
fore it picks the charities which are to be
represented, but in the middle of the next
semester it suddenly discovers that seem
ingly all that must be done in order that
another drive be conducted is that AUF
board members decide that the group
wishing to solicit has a worthy cause.
Original members of the AUF constitu
tional group of 1954-55 undoubtedly thought

the matter was clear when they inserted
under the heading of "Requirements for
Solicitation" the following:
"All campus and off-campus organiza
tions desiring to solicit money through the
AUF must submit a request before the en
suing year and meet with the executive
board before a deadline set by the execu
tive board."
Such a statement would again seem to
establish a clear criteria: There shall be
no drives for any organization other than
those set up after the student poll pro
cedure at the first of the year.
Again the problem hinges on the am
biguous word does "through" AUF
merely mean with its sanction since it is
the only group that can sanction or does
it mean only those drives in which the
full organization of AUF is to help?
Undoubtedly there are many constitu
tions on campus with far worse wording
problems than AUF's and certainly AUF
is to be commended for the fact that it
was trying to rewrite its constitution be
fore the controversy arose.
But in view of the important obligation
that AUF has assumed in becoming the
sole agency to protect the campus from
unwanted solicitations and the sole agency
to represent the many worthy charities,
we can only hope that it will be able to
quickly revise its constitution and make
clearer its position on requests for addi
tional drives beyond the annual efforts of
AUF itself.

Falls City introduced me
to the state with its ram
shackle buildings hovering
close to the railroad track
and black mud covering
every object. As the train
pulled north I wondered in
creasingly if there were any
paved roads in the state
and if all the cars covered
with mud and mired in the
ditch represented the usual
spring scene.
Evidently the farm to
market road campaign had
passed by Nebraska when
Missourians voted to take
Missouri out of the mud
back in 1928.
My doubts about the state
received additional confir
mation as the train pulled
into Omaha. However we
did come by train and what

is little in the way of public
transportation in Omaha. I

also are planned.

bunal,' but this is to be ac
complished by constructive
suggestion not criticism.
For instance, there is the
problem of punishment be
tween conduct warning and
suspension or expulsion.
Everyone realizes the prob
lem with conduct probation.
It hurts those in activities -and
has no effect on those
who are not. Yet very few
have come up with a sug
gestion, let alone a work
able solution.
As long as the caliber of
the judges on the Tribunal
remains as high as it has
in the past, students at Ne
braska can certainly look
forward to increasing re
spect for the Tribunal and,
accordingly, granting it
even more power than it
now has.
Any activity or organiza
tion which seems to have
trouble getting members
and goes around wailing
'apathy" would do well to
consider the example set by
this small group of students
who have had the privilege
of Tribunal membership. -
