University Reveals

Sometimes there is no
place to go except up.
An eight to ten story
dormitory and food service
area, expected to cost over
$3,000 per student housed,
is being designed by archi

Harper said the building,
expected to house 700-800
students, will be located on
the west side of 17th St. on
a vacant field next to the
Womens Residence Halls.

Tribunal Amendments
Council Accepts
Two Proposals
The Student Tribunal report proposing two amendments
to the Tribunal constitution, which will broaden the power of
the group, has been approved by the Student Council in a
vote of 19 to 8.

Under the terms of the pres
ent constitution, the Tribunal
may only recommend a dec

Affairs. The final ruling is
made by the Dean. Presently
there is no method of appeal
available to the student.
Most of the Council discus
sion centered around ot h e r
recommendations included in
the report including a propos
al that intramural athletics be
removed as one of the activ

"conduct probation" cannot
Intramurals Have Value
Those in support of this pro
posal contended that intramur
al activities were of therapeu
tic value to the person on con
duct pro. They also claimed
it would not violate the main
principle of the conduct pro
penalty which is to keep the
student from appearing in
public as a representative of
the University.
Those opposed to allowing
student on social pro to par
ticipate in intramurals claim
that often the person who
competed in such events was
not in any other organizations
which cause him to lose his
status as a member under a!
conduct pro ruling. Therefore,
if allowed to participate in in
tramurals, he would not be un
der any penalty at all.
A motion to amend the re
port to exclude the clause re
ferring to intramural partici
pation by a person on con
duct pro was defeated by a
vote of 15 to 13. .
A second motion to amend
the report called for striking
the indefinite probation and
indefinite suspension penalties
from the penalty list. It was
pointed out by those support
ing the motion that these
rulings poise in one person

oviet Aim
By Jan Sack
At the press conference Fri
day afternoon the visiting So
viet delegates, much at ease,
made it known that a press
conference was new to them
and that their answers should
be taken in that light.
The first question posed was
what does the average So
viet citizen consider to be the
main objective of his life?
Group leader Nikolai Bara
nov answered, "To serve the
country and the Communist
party. The object is to build
under the leadership of the
Communist Party a Commu
nist society in the U.S.S.R.
And we know that a Commu
nist society can only be built
if there is world peace. We

Soviets Exhibit Interest
In Slate House Design
Members of the Soviet del
egation visiting the U n i t e d
States responded well to the
many camera flashes as they
were briefly given a history
of Nebraska in the governor's
office by John Kelley, admin
istrative assistant.
After being greeted individ
ually by Governor Frank Mor
rison the group moved into
the legislative chambers to
see the unicameral in action.
Nikolai Baranov, group lead
er, addressed the senators for
about five minutes through the
interpreter Nickolas Bevad.
The content of Baranov's
speech was:
"We came to your country
under the cultural exchange
program and will be staying
one month.
"Our impression is that
there are very good contacts
between ourselves and the
youth of America and a good
understanding between us."
Looking much like typical
American tourists the Soviets
listened attentively as the
guide in the State House ex
plained to them the meaning
of the many mosaics on the

All women interested in
journalism are urged to attend.
Sigma Chi, Alpha Phi
Take Games Laurels
Sigma Chi and Alpha Phi copped the top honors in the
fraternity and sorority divisions of the Greek Games Sat
urday. The Sigma Chis won the men's pyramid race and took
second in the featured chariot race, compiling 8 points to
win the large traveling trophy.
The Alpha Phis won both the women's events, the egg
race and the tricycle race. Kappa Kappa Gamma finished
second in both races to take second in the games, with Al
pha Omicron Pi and Zeta Tau Alpha each winning a third.
Alpha Tau Omega won the men'B chariot race, the last
event of the day. The Sigma Chis took second and Beta
Theta Pi finished fourth.
In the men's tug-of-war, Sigma Alpha Epsllon proved
to be the toughest. Farm House took second and Delta Sig
ma Phi was third.
Sigma Chi won the pyramid race, defeating Phi Delta
and Delta Tau Delta in the final heat. '
Traveling trophies were presented to the two winning
houses and each event Individual event winner received a
plaque. These awards were sponsored by the Junior In

What does the group miss
most away from the Soviet
Miss Country
Baranov said they missed
the things that most other
people would miss. "First, he
said we miss our country.

we miss our families. We are

During the luncheon with
the Young Democrats and the
Young Republicans Vadim Ko-
ptflin, the young lecturer, sat
across the table from this re
porter and was asked many
questions about the Soviet Un
ion by members of the polit
ical clubs.
Koptilin said that within the
next 10 years the Soviet Un
ion would catch up and pass
the United States in every
form of industry. Why did
the Soviets propose to do this?
Koptilin said that the Soviet
Union wanted to raise the
standard of living to that of
the United States.
Then the question was asked
whether or not Russia would
force their aid or help onto
other countries such as Hun
gary? Koptilin said that Rus
sia does not force their aid
upon any country that does
not want it.
The leaders of the political
clubs then tried to point out
the differences between the
two parties. The speakers
were continually asked to be
more specific in their an
swers. At the press confer
ence later in the afternoon the
answers given by the Soviets
were of a more general na
ture. Saturday they went to some
farms near Crete and In the
evening were entertained by
the Nebraska International
Association (NIA).
The Soviet delegate seemed
to enjoy the Latin Ameri
can music of four members
of the NIA.

What, if anything, has the
group seen in the U.S. that
they would like to see emu
lated in the U.S.S.R.?
Again the group leader Ba
ranov took the lead and said
that they had seen many good
farms and had been told of
the great yields on some of
these farms. He also said that
the Soviet farmers get good
yields on their farms.
"On the negative side," Ba
ranov said, "we have seen
the unproductive use of ma
chinery and the non-equal de
velopment of all aspects of
farm work."
Corn Yields
Baranov said, "I would like
the Soviet farms to have corn

Soviet Colonies
In reply to this question
Yanis Vaivods, the journalist
from the Soviet Youth, said,
"One girl in the YWCA at
Iowa State University said
that the Baltic states of Lithu
ania, Estonia and Latvia are
colonies of the Soviet Union.
I am from Latvia and consid
ered 'this to be an abuse."
In direct contrast to this
Baranov said "This tiny ex
perience -cannot influence our
general experience. I do not
know of any unfriendly feeling
toward the group. The gov
ernments and the legislatures
have been good and welcomed
us. We have also had good
faculty and professional con
tacts. "People who have been in
contact with us want to bet
ter the relations between our
countries," Baranov said.
Did the U.S. correspond
to your preconceived notions?
Definite Yes
The answer to this was a
very definite, yes. Baranov
said that he had read widely
of the U.S. in both newspa
pers and magazines.
Khrushchev has said that
Soviet newspapers are too
dull for readers. What is be
ine done about this?
"I have never heard any-'

how could our papers have
such a large circulation? The
Komsomol Pravda has a cir
culation of 3'2 million and
there are over 100 different
local newspapers and maga

Soviet Union."
Baranov said that he doesn't
think that their newspapers
are without fault, but he add
ed that the correspondents
are doing their best to pro
vide the best coverage.
Better Sections.
"The question is not to
make the paper bigger, but
to make all the different sec

What does the Soviet edu
cational system stress most
and why does it stress that
particular point?
Correct Attitude
"The Soviet educational sys
tem is trying hard to give a
college student an opportun
ity to know everything that
will be used in practical work.
The system also stresses a
correct attitude to physical
work," Baranov said.
"The aim of the system is
to get students to share ideas
of the people and work under
the leadership of the Commu
nist Party for the country."
Baranov said the Soviet Un
ion is proud of its educational
system proud that it is free
and that it has such good spe
cialists to construct machin
ery that will put a man into
orbit and return him to earth.
Did you have government
preparation before you came?
And did you have instructions
on which questions to avoid?
Equality, Friendship
"From our childhood
through all our life we are
prepared to honor cur coun
try with its equality of treat
ment of people of different
nationalities in the spirit of
friendship," said Baranov.
"No one from the government
contacted us because of the
many people going abroad.
We just received a phone call
from the committee that or
ganized the trip and asked if
we would like to go."
The members had to meet
several conditions before
making the trip.
Their own wish to meet
the people and study the
American culture and know
about the United States.
Having the money to pay
for the trip.
Having good health.
Getting the consent of
their husbands or wives.
Task of getting vacations.
The last question asked was
about the Louie Armstrong
show in Ames, la. Baranov
said that the group was satis
fied with the Armstrong con
cert, but that the trumpeter
made a great deal of noise.
"I would prefer a little less
noise, but that doesn't mean
he isn't a good musician,"
Baranov added.
During the press .conference
the members of the Soviet
delegation seemed very much
at ease and laughed with the
newsmen and women.
