    Midwestern College Compact to Give Mutual Aid
By Margy Martin
Nebraska is o n e of 10
midwestern universi
ties that have established a
compact for the purpose of
helping each member insti
tution strengthen its teach
ing and research programs
and increase its operating
Chancellor Hardin said:
"We are hopeful that this
association will make it pos
sible to have some joint
programs which otherwise
would not be possible. The
possibilities are the joint
use of expensive and highly
specialized laboratories and
personnel. And we are ex
ploring the feasibility of the
exchange of students in
specialized curricula which
may be available on only a
part of the campuses."
The University is one of
the leaders in the program.
Dr. John C. Weaver, grad
uate dean of the University,
is chairman of the execu
tive committee which
drafted the Articles of
The other universities, in
addition to the University of
Nebraska, are: Kansas,
Kansas State, Colorado,
Colorado State, Iowa, Iowa
State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma,
State, and Missouri.
According to Dean
Weaver, plans for the inter
university cooperative asso
schools, have been under
study for the past two
As stated in the Articles
of Agreement, the major
consideraticns leading to the
establishment of the Asso
ciation are:
"The increased costs of
higher, education in all its
perly conduct research pro
grams; "The competition with
other segments of society
for competent staff mem
bers; "The explosive increase
in student enrollment."
The four main purposes
of the Association are:
To promote the im
provement of specialized fa
cilities and programs at
several institutions and to
prevent wasteful duplication
in order that each univer
sity may achieve a h i g h
degree of excellence in all
of its programs.
To make the specialized
' or unique educational pro
grams of these universities
available at resident fee
levels to students on re
gional basis.
To promote cooperative
use of unusual research fa
cilities among member uni
versities. To cooperate wherever
possible in providing a uni
fied voice in bringing ma
jor research and educa
tional facilities and pro
grams to the region.
Dean Weaver said in fit
ture meetings it is boned
that specific program can
be outlined.

53 Groups in Jeopardy
Council Revokes,
Defers Charters
By Ann Mover
Thirty-two University organizations have lost their con
stitutions and 21 other groups have been placed on suspension
until April 19 for failure to comply with the Student Council
requirements for good standing status.
The first action against the 32 organizaions which lost
their constitution was taken on March 8. At that time, the
groups were given 30 days in which to comply with the Coun
cil requirements. They were warned that they would lose
their constitutions if they failed to do so. Now, m order to
gain reinstatement, the organizations must follow the same
procedure as that required of a new campus organization.
The authority for the action
stems from the Council con
stitution which states: (Art.
Ill, Sec 1, b-) powers of the
Student Council include the
power "to recognize and ap
prove the constitutions of any
new student organization,
without which recognition and
approval an organization shall
not be permitted to function
and sec. c-"To review the con
stitution of any organization
with power of revocation."
H the organizations placed
on probation until April 19 fail
to complete the good standing
requirements by then, they
will lose their constitutions,
John Hoerner, chairman of
the judiciary committee, ex
plained to Council members
that, according to University
policy, any student who is
member of any group unap
proved by the University is
subject to disenrollment at the
discretion of the Dean of Stu
dent Affairs,
He said this ruling would
possibly apply to members of
those groups which have lost
their constitutions.
Groups losing their constitu
tions include:

youth to study and observe at the University.
Carlo Ramadoro of Rome, Italy, is the
first person to come to the state under the
international exchange program.
The 24-year-old Italian is here mainly to
observe the operation of the CoUege of Ag
riculture's Tractor Laboratory.
Td heard of the University of Nebraska
tractor testing laboratory back in Italy and
now I have the wonderful opportunity to see
and work with it first hand," said Ramadoro.
Heard About Lab
, He explained that he heard about the lab
oratory from two of his friends who were
brought to the United States several years
ago to test tractors for the Fiat Company.
Ramadoro, who lives with the L. F Lar
sen family in Lincoln, spends most of his
spare time at the testing laboratory. Mr.
Larsen is the engineer-in-charge of the
tractor laboratory's faculties.
When not at the tractor laboratory, which
is on Ag Campus, Ramadoro is attending
three classes at the University: English,
speech and farm motors. But be is looking
forward to June when he wiU spend most of
his time In the testing laboratory.
His participation in the international living
program and his stay in the United States is
being sponsored by the Fiat Co., where he
has worked for the past six years.

Photo-ID's 'Not Feasible'
The possibility of student'
identification cards carrying a
photograph of the student has
been tabbed "not feasible" by
the Student Council social
committee which had been in
vestigating the matter.
The possibility of the use
of photo ID's was brought be
for the Council several
weeks ago and referred to the
social committee headed by
Mike Milroy. Milroy reported
that the committee based
its decision on facts collected
from the Administration re
garding cost and necessity of
such a system and informa
tion gathered from local bus
inessmen and Unive:sity per
sonel. Milroy said the University
Administration and Regis
trar's offcie did not feel such
a system was feasible or nec
essary. At one time, photo
ID4s were used at the Uni
versity but they had bees
abandoned because 1) the
cost of the identification sys
tem was prohibitive, I) then

to Australia and Canada," he explained.
Knowing just a few words of English, Ra
madoro has been in the United Slates since
the first of February.
"I took French in school," be said, "but I
had some friends in a film factory that let
me watch English movies before they were
translated into Italian. I have also learned
English from some American jazz and sing
ing records at home," be said.
The small, solidly built youth, always
ready with a smile, says he thoroughly likes
to wear blue jeans and has already formed
many impressions of the people of the state.
National Problems
The farms are very mechanical here com
pared to those in Italy, he observed. Rama
oro feels that the farmers are much more in
terested in national problems than they are
in his country.
Many of the farmers, the youth said, wiU
buy a tractor or other piece of machinery in
sort of a co-operative. Five of them may buy
it together and then work out times for its

was increasing student re
sistance to the photographs
and much displeasure with
the quality of the pictures,
2) there was increasing stu
dent objection to the incon
venience of reporting to be
photographed and to retrieve
the completed ID, 4) too few
departments were profiting
from the program to justify
the loss of students' time as
well as that of others involved
in the process and cost, and
5) it was felt there were too
few dishonest students to war
rant the use of photos on stu
dent ID cards.
Milroy pointed out that a
photo ID system would not
prevent the procurement of
liquor by University students
because all retail liquor es
tablishment were supposed to
follow definite procedures for
determining the age of a cus
tomer which did not include
the inspection of University
ID cards.
Another area of investiga
tion by the committee, con
cerning passing ID's for Uni
versity events such as foot
ball games, showed that this
problem has been reduced to
the point that Administration
feels it is almost nonexistent.
- Five major downtown Lin
coln firms, who do a great
deal of business with Univer
sity students, reported that
they had very little trouble
with checks received from
students. Therefore, the com
mittee concluded from these
reports, that photo ID's would
have little value as a preven
tive of passing bad checks
since few were passed.
The use of a photo ID in
connection with punishment
for misconduct was found to
have ne value as the idea of
stamping the type of punish
ment for misconduct on the
student's ID card has been
abandoned in favor of other
possible ideas. '
It was further reported that
the present student identifica
tion cards provide excellent
means of positive ldeniuica
tion. In most cases driver'
licenses and selective service
cards are usually requested
first. A University ID card is
generally accepted if the
other cards are not available.
