2) To benefit the individual

in which she can participate.

Larly Registration
Fee Paying Set
For Exam Period J HC
Plans hae been made for early registra
tion and fee paying for the second semester by
a Student Council committee working in con
junction with the registrar.
On Jan. 17, 18, 19, students will pick up
appointment cards for paying fees in the Pan
American room of the Student Union. Each
student will choose the day and half hour in
which he wishes to pay fees,
provided that there are still
cards available for that day
and half hour. The days for
paying fees are Jan. 29, 30
and 31 in tne r nysicai edu
cation building. Fees were
formerly paid during semes
ter break and students were
just assigned a time.
Early registration and fee
paying stresses the responsi
bility of the individual stu
dent to carry his share of
the load in order to make
the process a smooth one.
The individual student will
be responsible for 1) obtain
ing the necessary early regi
stration materials from the
appropriate place; 2) seeing
his adviser during the advis
ing period; 3) turning in his
own worksheet at the proper
time and location; 4) picking
up his own appointment card
n one of the three designat
ed day; 5) keeping his ap
pointment for paying fees.
The appointment system re
duces the time spent paying
fees to approximately 15 min
utes. Since the days for pay
ing fees are the last three
days of the final examination
period, each student should
be sure that the time he
chooses does not conflict with
his final examinations. It is
strongly recommended that
each student have several
time preferencts in mind in
case his first preference is
not available.
' This system is not merely
an administrative conveni
ence to regulate the flow of
students. Rather, it is an ef
fort to accommodate the stu
dent, whose appointment card

literally "stands in line" for
him, thus enabling him fo

utes during the busy final ex
amination period.
Students who fail to turn in
work sheets or fail to keep
their appointments for fee
paying will be forced to go
through registration proced
ures the hard way. Transfer
students and former students
returning to school will have
precedence over the students
who have failed to fulfill their
responsibilities, v

December 11-22 and Janu

pointments with advisers.
Students should contact their
adviser to see when he will
be available during this pe
riod. Work sheets are to be

Nebraska schools attracted
60 per cent of the teachers
graduated from the Umver
sity last year according to
the annual teachers placement

This percentage indicates
that perhaps University
trained teachers are becom

the state for other parts of
the country.

Art Galleries
Show Bronze
Thirty-two pieces of bronze
sculpture created by Univer
sity art professor David W.
Seyler are on display now in
the Morrill Hall art galleries.
These pieces represent the
work which Prof. Seyler has
produced since 1958. Many of
them were done while he was
on a year's leave of absence
from the University to Italy.
The sculptures were pro
duced by the "lost wax cast
ing art" during 1959-60 in
Florence, Italy. A grant from
the Woods Charitable Founda
tion permitted Prof. Seyler to
study in Europe.
The exclusive Tornabuoni
dealers' art gallery in Flor
ence, held a one-man exhibi
tion of Prof. Seyler's work.
The same show as is on dis
play in Morrill Hall also was
displayed in Vienna and the
American House in Munich.
Prof. Seyler joined the Uni
versity in 1948 and has taught
subjects in painting, composi
tion, design, ceramics, letter

director of the placement di

schools seem to be doing a
better job in holding their
teachers. This has been no

he added.
He noted that Nebraska
schools made 2,494 requests,
172 more than last year, and
was able to attract 60 per

Dr. Meierhenry also pointed
out that California submitted

the previous year, but only
42 Nebraskans accepted posi
