Price to $6
The price of the 1962 Corn
huskers has been raised to $6.
Publications Board voted
unanimously to raise the cost
of the Cornhusker, because of
the increased quality and in
creased cost of printing, ac
cording to Anne Sowles, 1962
Cornhusker editor.
The Cornhusker currently
costs $11 per book to print,
which means that 45 per cent
of the cost of each book is
paid through advertising and
organizational space, rather
than each student paying the
total $11.
The staff feels that In order
to continue producing the Ail
American quality which has
been published in the past two
years, the raise in price is
necessary and justified, she

Sigma Phi Epsilon Probation Lifted;
Emblem Replaced at Midnight Stroke
By Ann Moyer
At midnight last night the
campus regained a fraternity
as the Sigma Phi Epsilon crew
once again placed their fra
ternity emblem above the door
at 601 North 16th and offi
cially returned to their place
on fraternity row.
At the hour of midnight, the
charter suspension of the Sig
Ep fraternity was lifted ac
cording to Dean J. P. Colbert
of Student Affairs. The return
of the chapter charter was
effected by the unanimous con
sent of the the University
Board of Regents.
The Regents agreement to
return the charter, which
was suspended by them in Oc
tober, 1960, for violation of
probationary status, was re
ceived by means of a special
telephone poll concerning the
matter. The action ot return
ing the charter was recom
mended by both the interfra
ternity Board of Control and
the Committee on Student At
tain. Dean Colbert said the Re
gents were required to offi
cially ratify their decision at
the next Regents meeting
scheduled, for June 10 but the
action would simply verify
their telephone poll decision
Colbert 'Happy'
Colbert remarked that he
was quite happy for the boys

Attention Campus Drivers: Paving At Last
By Dick Stuckey
Carl Donaldson, University business manager, stat
ed yesterday that plans are underway for the paving of
the north half of the Selleck parking lot. '
"We are presently getting information ready for a
formal presentation to the Board of Regents," said Don
aldson, "and we are proceeding on a positive thinking
The Board of Regents gave approval to (he paving
of the south end of Selleck lot late last July. Earlier
approval of the present plans would finish the con
struction approximately the first of next school year
In mid-September.
"We are more sure now than we were a year ago
about the south half," said Donaldson. "We've got our
fingers crossed though."
Present plans do not call for the installation of
parking meters, but do allow for future installation.
The pedestals will be constructetd one foot wider
than those in the south lot, and will enable later park
ing meter installation if called by for the Regents.
Donaldson's plans include landscaping similar to
that of the last summer south lot construction. Shrub
bery will be planted which will be in full growth in
three years.
"The old stump will have to go," reminded Donald
son. He referred to the summit placed cottonwood re
maining in the middle of the north lot. "We probably
ought to work up some ceremony for It, I suppose," he
added. "However, it will provide two additional park
ing spaces."
The north parking lot is presently graveled, but
the winter months and the wet spring have combined
to produce a rough surface on the lot. Prior to the
paving of the south lot, conditions were quite similar
in that lot.
Landscaping of the south lot, including sodding and
planting of shrubs was continued this year. With the
paving and landscaping of both lots, parking spaces
decrease, while campus perfection increases.
