The biggest problem seemed to come from the fact that the organizations did not know if they were complying with require ment number 1: "To be in good standing the organiza tion must have an approved copy of their constitution on file at the Division of Student Affairs." "If we have a copy of their constitutions, the Stu dent Council does too," Mrs. Ermal Collister, sec retary to Dean Frank Hall gren said of the inquiring organizations. Mrs. Collister said when an organization is first or- 'Operation Bootstrap9 Cutback of Fmids Reduces Enrollment By Nancy Whit ford "Operation Bootstrap" and cutbacks in military funds for education have contributed to a decrease of nearly 200 stu dents in evening courses at the University. These figures, released by acting supervisor of evening courses. Edor Ellingson, in-1 elude 573 full-time campus students, and 695 students -st- large enrolled in the program. "Some K3 campus students and 825 students-at large were enrolled last semester, for a total then of 1,457 as compared to 1,288 this year," Ellingson said. Ellingson attributed the de crease in student-at-large en rollment to the military pro gram of "Operation Boot strap" which permits service personnel to earn credit for a degree in general eduea tion in connection with their I military service. This program is being spon- -J k i n-;.. I Omaha for the first time this year at the Lincoln Air Force Base.

"I don't know what has happened. I'm sure it isn't the Student Council's fault. We just got our wires crossed and we aren't hit ting somewhere," she said. Confusion An example was a rep resentative of a student or ganization who -was sure that her organization was in bad standing but the files at Student Affairs did not bear this out. She was hav ing trouble finding the cor rect forms needed. When told she should go to the council office, she replied, "I have, but t h e y are busy." "How some of these or ganizations got in bad standing, I don't know. It is something we'll have to decrease in student-at-large enrollment nas been the cut back in federal money for ed ucation of airforce person nel." Ellingson pointed out This year airmen may tike only one college credit course to which the federal govern- ment wiu contribute partial payment of expenses. In past vears toe government contrib- uiea 10 payment oi more than one course, Ellingson ex plained. "However, the enrollment of campus students in eve ning courses fluctuates for no apparent reason from year to year," he said. The selection of courses to be offered in the evening de pends mainly on student in terest and requests. "Therefore, a number of courses which had been planned were dropped this vear because fewer than 10 students registered," Elhng 80,1 ai" "2ft!) Ipvi '200 level math course for engineers provides the only major 'new' course this year," Ellingson pointed out. "All other courses offered have been given in the eve ning sometime before." Ellingson observed that the chief differences were in method of faculty payment and time of day. "Teachers are paid on the overload basis from tuition funds rather than from Uni versity money.
