Proposed Educational
71 T ' m Wn
must r
A proposed Nebraska
wide educational television
network must prove within
three weeks, that it will be
able to use the channels it
is asking the Federal Com
munications Commission to
give it.
The Nebraska Council for
Educational Television has
been given until Feb. 28 to
present final arguments on
why five channels across
the state should be re
served for educational uses
rather than assigned to
commercial users.
Latest Developments
Jack McBride, manager
of KUON-TV in Lincoln, re
ported these latest develop- -ments
in the council's two
year struggle to expand ed
ucational television. His
summary to - 60 educators
who were guests ,of the
council was that the net
work is in a "dire situa
tion:" At stake are five chan
nels Channel 13 in Al
liance, 7 in Bassett, 9 in
North Platte, 8 in Albion
Friday, February 91962
a music room, choir room
and loft, a library, a semi
inar room and a caretakers
The cost of the entire proj
ect when finished will amount
to about $325,000. Dr. Wm.
B. Gould and Rev. Duane
Hutchinson are ministers of
the Wesley Foundation.
Summer Schedules
Schedules for Summer
School are now available at
the Registrar's Office, 208
The schedules may be
picked np between 8 a.m.
and 5 p.m. Monday through
Friday, and from 8 a.m. to
12 p.m. Saturday.
and 3 in Kearney which
have been requested by
commercial interests.
The five channels, in ad
dition to a higher-power
KUON-TV, would provide
coverage for 90 of the
state's area, the council
"Thus far," McBride ex
plained, "we have been un
able to show financial re
sponsibility." Not Convinced
In other words, the FCC
is not yet convinced the
network has enough money
behird it to activate these
channels if it gets them.
. McBride said the capital
required to establish the
chain of stations would
have to come from the
Legislature. The council's
job" then, is to get solid
backing of likely state sen
ators and then convince
the FCC to save the chan
nels at least until the Leg
islature takes action next
, McBride said if these
VHF channels are denied
The IFC voted 18-5 Wednes
day, to discontinue the prac
tice of fining members of
fraternities who do not vote
in Student Council elections.
The resolution was drawn
up and promulgated by the
IFC executive council. John
Nolon, newly-elected presi
dent, opened the discussion
with his advocation of the
proposal and an amount of
debate followed which belied
the one-sided vote.
Roger Myers, vice presi
dent, stated that the pro
posal would be consistent
with the goals and princi
ples of the IFC. "The IFC
does not want to coerce
anyone," he added, "we
learned at the National In
terfraternity Conference In
Boston that the most effec
tive IFC is the one with the
least rules." .
John Bischoff pointed out
that a fine is merely an in
centive for attendance, as is
used by the, individual chap
ters at their meetings ana oy
the IFC for their weekly
meetings. "It is not coercion,
we do not tell them how to
vote," he added.
No Jurisdiction
Gerry Gale stated that the
Student Council has no juris
diction over matters such as
this, and that the IFC repre
sentatives have the job of
supporting the slate 100 and
that fining was the means to
that end.
Bob Weber said, "It would
improve our public relations
if we would adopt the propos
al. The fine causes resent
ment among the houses, and
does more harm than good."
John Musselman added
that the IFC had expressed
confidence in its members
by not assessing the houses
for the IFC ball, and keep
ing the fine would under
mine this confidence. "It is
not an irrevocable gamble,
we should try it."
Bill B u c k 1 e y, secretary,
commented that the key to
success would be promoting
spirit, publicity around elec
tion time, and organization
within the IFC, not fining the
members of the houses.
In Best Interest
John Nolon had previously
stated that adopting the pro
posal would be in the best in
terest of the IFC and he
thought that without the fine
the IFC could enlist the help
of mora of the houses. "We
can build a better University
through the IFC instead of
building a better IFC through
the University," he said.
One of the facts brought
to light by the opposition to
the resolution was that out
of 90S votes cast in the last
Homecoming Queen elec
tion, only 83 of them were
cast by fraternity mem
bers. Joel Lundak appeared be
fore the IFC, representing a
group of organized independ
ents which are going to have
an all-University slate. He
advocated the IFC dropping
the fine.
Other Business
In other business, announce
ment was made of the Valen
tine Party the IFC is having
the network, "We'd have
to settle for much less de
sirable UHF channels." The
ultra high frequency chan
nels are substantially less
economical to operate, he
Furthermore, he said, the
council is convinced tele
vision owners are not in
clined to pay the extra
820-40 to adapt their sets
to UHF reception. In short,
the whole idea of education
al television in Nebraska
would be in danger, he ven
tured. Transmissions Limited
UHF transmissions are
limited to slightly more
than line - of - sight range"
without an extraordinary
power output. This is ex
tremely expensive, Mc-
Bride said.
Commercial stations in
Omaha and Scottsbluff row
telecast some of KUON
TV's classroom programs
by simulcast and kinescope
methods. In general, cov
erage is now limited to the
Lincoln area, and using

IFC Resolution
The Interim t e r n i t y
Council, cognizant of its
obligation to suport the
ideals and goals of the Uni
versity through its student
governing body by en
couraging and soliciting
the vote of its members in
Student Council elections
and anxious to do all pos
sible to combat student
apathy by encouraging the
support of its members to
ward University policy in
general, hereby- states its
general policy as regards
this specific election:
1) We feel it the respon
sibility of the IFC as a ma
jor organizational unit on
the campus to encourage
support in the elections
through its public relations
department and through
the support of the various
house presidents.
2) We think it the right
as well as the responsibil
ity of the Interfraternity
Council as well as every
student and student organ
ization to encourage com
petent, qualified students
in the achievement of elec
tion to the Student Coun
cil. 3) In full cooperation and
support of the ideals and
goals of the University, we
feel it no longer consistent
with general interfraternity
policy to continue the pre
vious practice of imposing
financial loss on members
of the system for not exer
cising the right to vote.

McBride said the availa
bility of the VHF stations
"is as much a resource to
Nebraska as its water."
"Other states would give
their eye-teeth for them,"
he claimed.
The FCC set up its table
of channel allocations in
the early 1950's, McBride
continued, based on the
maximum number of VHF
channels an area could ab
sorb without interference.
In more populated areas,
all VHF channels were
grabbed long ago.
Nebraska, because of its
sparsely populated areas,
still has a few of these
channels left
While the FCC Is
studying the council's re
quest, a survey is being
conducted to determine

survey director, told the

"The action taken on this

"Fanatics" Needed
He expressed a reserva
tion, however, that , there
are not enough "fanatics"
about the idea to actively
spread it across the state.
Charles Klasek, director
of the educational televi
sion council pointed out
the growth of the network
in its two years.
Initially there were just
six school systems which
were members. Now, he
said, there are 33.
Klasek said the council is
-ready to present next year
if member schools desire
7-additional programs in
