Burt said, "The Student Council registration commit tee strongly urges all students Deaf Ch ildren By Karen Sass Deaf children are learning to speak for the first time in a special program on the University campus. This is one of the many services of the University Speech and Hearing Laboratory. Approximately 100 to 150 pre-school and schoolage speech and hearing handicapped children are helped each year according to Lucille Cypreansen, assistant professor of speech and advisor of the clinic. "These children are referred to ns by doctors, social workers, visiting nurses and other agencies for diagostic testing," she said. "We then refer them to other services and often they come back to ns for therapy.". The children's clinic however is only a portion of the program offered by the laboratory. University students and other adults with speech and hearing defects are also referred to the clinic. Two courses Sor credit are offered to foreign students in which they learn how to pronounce English correctly. Cooperative New this year are the laboratory's cooperative pro grams with the neurological and psychiatric department of the School of Medicine in Omaha and with the cleft palate clinic in the Dental College. The most common type of defect diagnosed and treated is that of articulatory difficulties in which sounds are omitted or confused. Voice problems are second in fre quency. "Although we are certainly interested in helping these people, the primary purpose of the clinic is to provide practice for the undergraduate speech therapy major," Miss Cypreansen pointed out. The American Speech and Hearing Association requires that a speech therapy graduate have 200 hours of clinical practice. The undergraduate student works primarily with children at first out by graduation he has gained a great deal of experience in working with adults. There are about 70 students in the training program at present. No Toys According to Miss Cypreansen the clinic's greatest J' Dr. Carl Gorgi, chairman of bacteriology department.

This will save the student much time and effort during the busy final exam period." Big 8 Council Elects Nolon John Nolon, Student Coun cil chairman of public issues, was elected vice president of the Big Eight Student Gov ernment Association meeting at the Nebraska Center, Dec. 28 to 30. The new president is John Pilkington of the University of Missouri and recording secretary, Toni Acosta, Okla homa State University. The over 50 delegates in at tendance revised the Big Eight Student Government Association (BESGA) consti tution, combining drafts sub mitted by Nebraska's Stu dent Council and Iowa State's student government. A debate and discussion on the purposes of the National Student Association (NSA) between NSA president Ed Garvey of Philadelphia, Pa., and Kay Wonderlic, a former Northwestern University stu dent who heads an organiza tion opposed to the NSA, stim ulated discussion among the delegates. Nebraska, who dropped its membership in the NSA in the early 1950's, could take action to re-affiliate upon vote of the Student Council and application to the Divi sion of Student Affairs. Delegates also voted to hold their next meeting at the Uni versity of Missouri between Dec. 25 and Jan. 1, 1962. Difference Of Opinion On Budget Total Request Never Granted: Marvel By Mike MacLean "There was an honest dif ference of opinion on the budget for the University for this biennium, and there , al ways will be," stated State Senator Richard Marvel, Chairman of the Budget Com mittee. ) "In my experience, theHo tal University request has never been granted," he con tinued. The Legislature must attempt to allocate the state's resources fairly among the 55 agencies of the state." "The decision oi the 1961 1963 budget has already been made, the figure cannot be changed," he added. "In the 1959-1961 budget the University got a $4 million dollar raise, from $21 million to $25 million. Almost all of this raise was used to in crease instructors salaries," he otated. "For the 1961-1963 budget, the University re quested a 22 increase and received an 11 increase. There was no budget cut, as some of the headlines have stated," Marvel stated. He continued, "As chair man of the committee, ,1 am hoping to schedule meetings with the University officials, both formal and informal, to djscuss the University's prob lems. I think that these problems should be studied continuously, not just six months out of every year." When asked for a possible solution, Marvel stated," Legislators should have an opportunity to meet the fac ulty, so that the two groups could become better acquain ted with each other's puob lems. Legislators should be invited to speak at campus meetings and students should be encouraged to attend the legislature when it is in ses sion." Senator Fern Hubbard Orme, a woman senator from Lincoln who also was on the budget committee, had this to say: " "As I see it'the budget re quest approved by the Board of Regents and presented by Chancellor Hardin recognized the needs of a growing insti tution devoted to comprehen sive research, textsive serv ices and classroom instruc tion. I regret the budget com mittee members did not ap prove the entire amount." AVF Blanks Ready Application blanks for All University Fund (AUF) chairmanship and assistant ship may be , picked up to day on the bulletin board outside 334 Student Union, Application forms are due Jan. 11 and should be re turned to 334 Union. Posi tion interviews' will be held Jan. 13 beginning at 8 a.m. Learn to Speak problem is the lack of books and toys which are used in the children's clinic. "You teach these children to speak correctly by communicating through toys," she explained, "and we have no appropriation for such materials." This year members of the speech therapy service hon orary, Sigma Alpha Eta, gave talks to organized houses about the clinic, making a request for materials, and also appeared on a local TV program explaining the need for these toys. The clinic received 20 of All University Fund this year. , The Speech and Hearing Laboratory does not have any great, means of financial support outside of the support it receives from the state. No Charge There is no charge for diagnosis at the clinic and only a modest charge for therapy for children and non-University adults. "The University of Nebraska Speech and Hearing Laboratory may not be too well known on campus but it has national fame other universities look up to," Miss CypreanSen said. "We have the reputation of having one of the best undergraduate programs in the country." All members of the faculty have taught out of state and are advanced members of the American Speech and Hearing Association. Dr. Burgi is a fellow in the organiza tion, an honor which is given only to outstanding workers of the field. A textbook written by several members of the staff is being used all over the country and was recently adopted by Northwestern University. The clinic, which began in 1940 as .one desk in Temple building, now occupies several offices on the first floor and a whole section of second floor. The laboratory also has a research program which is conducted by the staff and graduate students. At pres ent, the speech therapy department offers a masters de gree but no doctorate degree program.

The re maining $4,784,000 will be used to refund outstanding bonds of the 1953, 1956 and 1959 is sues. Comptroller Joseph Soshnik said the combining of the bond issues into one will re duce financial accounting complexities and will lead to more flexible management of housing facilities.

The bonds will be secured by a lien on revenues from the University's residence halls and food-service facili ties and from a portion of the student fees for the Stu dent Union and Health Cen ter. Housing The Twin Tower dormitor ies will house 960 students. At present 3,620 students (not in cluding those who live with parents) are required to find their own housing off-campus because campus living units are filled.

Carl Donaldson, University business manager, said that owners of the company are planning to liquidate the busi ness this month and had of fered the property to the Uni versity. - The cost of the land is ap proximately 57 cents per square foot. Increase The ten percent dormitory increase, which becomes ef fective next fall, will mean that students will pay $660 an increase of $60 to live and eat in University-operated dormitories. The rate is based on 20 meals per week for the school year. The Board also voted a $5 per month increase for married-student housing on t h e College of Agriculture cam pus, effective Sept. 1. The cost will be raised from $70 to $75 per month for one-bedroom apartments and from $80 to $85 per month for two-bedroom apartments. Chancellor Clifford Hardin said the increase was neces sary because of the higher operational building costs. He said the present rate is in adequate to take care of equipment replacement. Chancellor Hardin said the Nebraska rates have been among the lowest throughout the Big Eight. Other rates for the present year compared with Nebraska's $600, are: Colorado, $710; Iowa State $660; Kansas, $652, Kansas State, '$660; Missouri, $670; Oklahoma. ?560 and Oklahoma State, $588.
