The most decisive step
taken Wednesday in the dis

the elimination of the Policy
Committee, which would have
given the Board power in
forming IFC policy, accord
ing to Bill Connell, who
headed the committee which
drew up the new plan.
Connell stated that the
Policy Committee was incor

the motions passed on the
floor. This committee is made
up of equal representation of
alums and undergraduates.
The new plan also increases
the number of people on the
IFC Executive Council with
the addition of the Public Re

total Exec members to six.

the question of whether to

The IFC decided to leave

by Chip Kuklin.
A technical point was the
replacement of the word "re

Develop Ideas
Roy Neil, council' member,
immediately took the offen
sive and charged that the
council had "every right to
go into executive session to
protect such things as imma
ture ideas and give things
a chance to develop before
publication. That is our moral
obligation to the students
who elected us," he told the
council and visitors.
Representative Moyer then
rose to speak against the ex

your minds in case you are
wondering who told the Rag

Herb Probasco, editor of
the Daily Nebraskan, thn
spoke before the guests and
members and expressed his
views concerning the execu

policy of the Nebraskan.
National Security

he said. He went on to ex
plain that no other govern

The Council had 'no pur
pose or reason for closing
their doors last week and
the members do not know
what an . executive session
means," Probasco said.
Probasco added that if the
Council continued to close
their doors to visitors and the
Daily Nebraskan, he, as edi
tor, would not print any
news coming from such meet

statement and publish it or

basco. "In case some of you
haven't read my editorial in

floor and told Probasco if he
did not print news coming
out of the Council "as you
are obligated to do," he
(Hoerner) would see that
Probasco be removed from
his post on the Daily NeL-'as-kan.
