The procedure in choosing

according to Neil. The nom

views with 22 students last
Sunday. The committee made
their selections for each post
and then the 'Council to ap
prove their nominations.
In the past only the six
chairmen were selected by
the nominations committee,
of which three appeared be
fore the Council for the job
of over-all chairman. This
person then appointed the re-""
maining interviewees selected
by the nominations commit
tee to the other chairman and
assistant chairman positions.
"This ,w a y we get better
co-ordination. Only those peo
ple who are interested and
qualified for a position are
chosen. This was not the case
la the past," Neil explained.
Week Set
Roger Strove, president of
the council on religion, has
announced that Religious Em
phasis Week will be resumed
this year on the University
campus. It will be held Feb.
Strove noted that six "out
standing" speakers are being
invited by the various religi
ous groups to discuss the
theme 'A Relevant Faith."
Several of the speaker invita
tions have yet to be con
firmed and will be announced
in the near future, he said.
in addition to speeches at
the individual religious
houses, it is hoped that a
number of residence houses
will also invite the religious
leaders to speak, Struve
The event had been an an
nual occurence in past years,
but was not held last year
because planning began too
late, Struve explained.
Theta Sigs Pledge
Three, Initiate Five
Theta Sigma Phi, honorary
journalism fraternity for
women, initiated six new
members, and pledged three.
The initiates are Sarah
Alden, Sharon Olson, Anne
Sowles, Carol Wilcox, Cindy
Powell, and Gretchen Shell
berg. The new pledges are Karen
Costin, Barb Shuck, and Carol
gory, Beta Theta Pi, and Bill
Murphy, Sigma Chi; and rush
chairman, Jim Huge, Phi
Kappa Psi, "and Bill Waddell,
Sigma Chi.
"Top Men"
President Marty Sophir,
who announced the slate,
called it fairly well bal
anced." He said, "We feel the
slate contains the top men,"
and urged houses to nominate
others for offices.
In new business, Sophir
read a letter from Ernest
Dewey, president of the IFC
Board of Control, that ap
proved the new constitutional
amendments and recommend
ed a provision be included
that the old Executive Coun
cil meet with the new officers
for a minimum of six weeks
after the election.
A motion was passed to
amend the constitutional
amendment (passed Dec. 14,
1960 which changed elections
from March to January), so
that the out-going Executive
Council would, as part of their
duties, meet with the new
Exec Council each week for a
minimum of six weeks after
their election.
Prieb Resigns
Ben Prieb submitted his
resignation as IFC Rush
Chairman due to the fact
that he is getting married in
August and will not be able
to handle the summer rush
Prieb earlier announced
that an alumni had offered to
sponsor the rush film in Bro
ken Bow this spring and
moved that an additional $60
be appropriated for the film,
which was passed.
Funds to be Used
In Technique Study
A $6,000 grant has been
awarded to the University
School of Journalism by the
Newspaper Fund, an organi
zation supported by the Wall
Street Journal.
According to Professor
Neale Copple, director of the
advanced reporting classes at
the School, the grant will be
used to study techniques of
upgrading the classroom ap
proach to journalism so that
students can obtain maximum
benefits from the training in
newswriting and related
courses in social sciences,
pure sciences, the humanities
and other academic areas.
The first expenditure in
volves student expenses for
depth stories of concern to
Nebraska and the Midwest
One of these stories, a series
on taxation by a senior stu
dent in the first depth report
ing class, has had a circula
tion of more than a half
million in Nebraska's news
papers. Copple explained that this
circulation thus far totalling
one and a half million was
for the first three of the five
part series which will be
completed in January.
Other stories being pro
duced by the journalism stu
dents include: the farm sur
plusThe Plague of Plenty;
education S p u t n 1 k Plus
Three; recreation No Place
to Play; Industrialization in
the Midwest; the isolationist
Midwest becomes the front
of defense in the missile
age; and the exceptional and
retarded child.'
Profiles of nationally well
known Midwesterners are al
bo being worked on. Included
in this series is ""What Hap
pened to Joe Smith?"
The project also involves
research in depth reporting as
it is now practiced by lead
ing newspapers, interpreta
tion of these methods to stu
dents, field trips by journal
ism students, coordination
with other departments in the
University in providing jour
nalism students with essen
tial background courses and
the preparation of a text to
make the material widely
was a need to extend the
hours then there is also a
need for the extension of
freshmen girls hours.
"The committee further
felt that we should, not be
so concerned as to whether
they would all go to the
library during the extended
time, but rather that they
have the opportunity to go,"
Miss Tinan explained.
The extension of hours
was point five of the Coun
1 cil's report. The other seven
recommendations for con
sideration by AWS include:
1. "That the rulebook con
tain a list of places to go
for information and serv
ices; the list to include
where to:
a. Apply for a part-time
b. Change residence
c. Find employment after
d. See about Student
e. Change advisers
f. Schedule 'social affairs
plus others.
2. "That the rulebook con
tain a church directory,
listing the names, ad
dresses, phone numbers and
pastors of each religious
house on campus.
3. "That the rule book
contain a map of the cam
pus, indicating all build
ings, housing units, religious
houses, bookstores, football
stadium and the parking
4. "That the lalebook be
supplemented with a special
section to provide the above
6. "That individuals who
commit infractions against
any AWS rule which consti
tutes an automatic campus
be given the right to appeal
their case; and this right
to be stated in the rule
book. 7. "That the rulebook ex
plain more clearly the pro
cedure of AWS Court.
8. "That all University
women, freshmen through
senior, be allowed two 12:00
cuts a semester, to be
taken any night Sunday
through Thursday, for pur
poses to be decided at their
discretion; the individuals
to tell the housemother by
12:00 noon on the day of
the cut; these cuts to be
mainly used in circum
stances in which the pres
ent AWS rules do not allow
you to obtain special per
mission." The committee report
"neither for nor against
these recommendations, but
, rather that it feels they
need consideration in order
to investigate the areas
they concern."
The committee consulted
similar rulebooks at South
western University, San
Diego State College, the
University of Michigan and
the University of California
in making the report.

stated the letter nominating
the associate professor.
"His informative and time
ly studies in the fields of fam

been invaluable not only to
the members of the Nebraska
bar, and indeed, practition

"Currently, the 30-year-old
associate professor is teach
ing torts, the law of civil
wrongs, criminal law and fam

has been developing through
his knowledge gained in ex
tensive research and as a
participant in the Chicago
jury Project.
"It is worthy of note that
this nomination was intended
before Jan. 12th's statement
by Mr. Broeder regarding the
rile of the law College pro
fessor. However, the pene
trating statement appearing
in the newspapers regarding
the professional integrity of
law professors makes this
nomination even more signi
ficant. "In that statement, Mr.

er state senator Ray Sim
mons, who has criticized the
work load of law faculty mem'
bers. His statement of aca
demic freedom will, no doubt,
be considered courageous, in
light of harrrassment of
former law school faculty
member by the 1959 Legis
lature. .
"We belive that this nom
ination will, in addition to
honoring a truly magnificent
teacher, demonstrate to our
fellow students and the peo
ple of Nebraska, the deep
seated respect we feel for our
faculty and our University,
and our shock at uninformed
critics who would undermine
our fine educational system
in this day when good educa
tion is a prerequisite to dem
ocracy." the first letter of
nomination concluded.
In the second letter nomin
ating Prof. Broeder, addition
al points were brought out:
"In my understanding of the
choosing of faculty members
as Outstanding Nebraskans,
the critieria are: an interest
in the student as an individ
ual, dynamic and interesting
classroom technique, repuia
tion nationally in. one's field,
respect f students and fel
low teachers, ana good cur
zenship outside the classroom.
"In mv opinion, Mr. Broea
er fulfills these criteria fully
as well, and perhaps better,
than any of the recent out
standing Nebraskans.
"We feel that Archie Clegg
is very deserving of the title
of Outstanding Nebraskan for
the fall semester because of
his character and his out
standing accomplishments
and contributions while a stu
dent at the University," stat
ed the letter of nomination.
"Archie's sincerity and in
terest in others, both faculty
and students, has made peo
ple admire and respect him.
At the present time his activi
ties on campus include presi
dent of Farmhouse, vice
president of the Nebraska U
ion Board of Managers, presi
dent of the Ag Nebraska U

cents Society and a member
of Agronomy Club.
'He has also been chaorman
of Spring Day, vice president
of Kosmet Khub, a member of
Ag Exec Board and the Var
sitv Men's Glee Club. Last
year Archie was chosen as a
finalist for Eligible Bachelor.
