"To sustain the conservative
attitude of the State of Ne

this motion raises campus

privilege (censure motion),
saying that he only desired to

Second Vice-President Jim
Samples suggested that law

question circulate a petition
to all students on campus of
age 21 or over.
The problems, and plans for Nebraska
Hall, formerly known as the Elgin Build
ing, are many, according to Carl Donald
son, University business manager.
The Conservation and Survey Division,
the U.S. Weather Bureau, University
Press, University Print and Duplicating
Laboratory, the Planning and Construc
tion Division, the University computing
center and testing service are the current
occupants of the building.
"Facilities for these occupants were
constructed in phase one," said Donald
son. "In work like this (modifying a build
ing) it is easier to do a lot of it at
once," he said.
Phase two, which consists of construct
ing facilities for several new occupants,
will start early this spring, according to
The Extension Division, including the
audio visual facilities; The School' of
Journalism; the University photography
laboratory, and the University telephone
switchboard will move in as soon as the
construction is complete.
"I am crossing my fingers that it will
be next fall, but it will probably be
around this time next year before they
move in," Donaldson said.
The building is also used as a drill hall
for ROTC units, and by various organiza
tions which need a large amount of
room to build backdrops and props for
Donaldson also pointed out that the up
per floors of the building serve as valu
able storage space for equipment and
furniture for new University buildings. It
was used as a warehouse for the Ne
braska Center for Continuing Education,
and is currently being utilized for the
Sheldon Art Gallery and the new dorm;
"We face some unique problems," said
Donaldson. "Working within and around
the standing walls is quite a bit different
than building a new building suited for
these many needs."

The Long
Cold Line
If the weather forecast
holds true, the problem of
highway travel to and from
the basketball tournament
may be hazardous. The
weatherman predicts cloudi
ness and rain, possibly chang
ing to snow.
However, if this does hap
pen, things are pretty well
taken care of as far as sleep
ing quarters and food are
concerned. "Operation Mat-
ress, 1962," is all planned out.
If such a weather situation
should occur, there are build
ings and various other do
nated housing in Lincoln
which could be used. Indi
vidual buildings can house
anywhere from 50 to 300 per
building, with a total of 2
3,000 from all of the com
bined resources.

The Student Union and Sel

up their cafeterias to the peo

day and part of the night un

Through the insight of Uni

coin citizens, who look after
their guests, a bad turn by
old man winter could be com
batted with relative ease.

the question of NSA affilia
tion to student vote at the
general spring election was
indefinitely tabled by a vote
of 18-12 at Student Council
meeting yesterday.
The amendment was pro
posed by Council member
Herbie Nore. It would have
submitted the NSA affiliation
question to a student vote only
if the Student Council ap
proved NSA affiliation at the
April 11 meeting.
A motion by AI Plummer
then put the motion for NSA
affiliation back on the table
by a 22-8 Council vote.
This motion can be brought
off the table next week, ac
cording to Judiciary Chair
man Jim Samples.
Then law college represent
ative, Bob Grimit, moved to
indefinitely table' Nore's
amendment until April 11, af
ter he had spoken against the
amendment. His motion was
ruled out of order on a par
liamentary technicality.
When Council President
Steve Gage again recognized
Grimit to restate his motion
that it might be in order,
member Nancy Butler moved
to censure president Gage for
showing favoritism in recog
nizing Grimit. Another mem
ber (Nore) had asked for rec
ognition before Grimit after
he had first yielded the floor,"
she said.
The motion to censure
Gage was defeated by a vote
of 28 to 2.
Miss Nore, in introducing
the amendment, said, "Since
the Student Council is moving
into a new area not covered
by- the present Council con
stitution (by proposing NSA
affiliation), we need the ap
proval of the student body.'
Business Administration rep
resentative Bill Gunlicks said
that in a random survey that
he took of some 50 students in
his college this week, not a
single person favored bringing
the question of NSA affiliation
before the student body.
"Student do not feel they
are well enough acquainted
with the NSA to be able to
competently vote on the is
sue," Gunlicks said. He asked
that the Council, ' w h i c h is
well-informed, decide the
"If the University affiliates
with the, NSA, the actions of
the NSA and the simple fact
of our affiliation will reflect
back on the entire student
body and the University,"
said representative Chip Kuk

the question of NSA affilia
tion would be voted down by
tne student body at the gen
would not be informed on the
NSA in the general election
as the percentage of Student
Council members that would
not be informed on the ques
tion April 11.
"The Student Council should
not take the easy way out In
the .question of NSA affilia
tion by handing over the
question to the student body,"
said member Dave Scholz.
"When the NSA study com
mittee submits its report on
April 11, Council members
will not have an opportunity
to discuss the NSA affilia
tion question with the stu
dents they represent in the
light of the study committee
report," said member Susie
Moffitt, "if we vote on the
NSA affiliation question that
same day."

medicine, osteopathy, vet
erinary medicine, theology,
and law for students who
have completed one year will
be automatically granted.

Parking 'Gamblers' Suffer Heavy Fines
'Guys, Dolls' Tickets
On Sale in Blocks
There will be a representa
tive from Pershing Municipal
Auditorium at , the Student
Union from 12 to 2 p.m. on
March 19 and 20 to sell blocks
of tickets for the Kosmet
Klub presentation of "Guys
and Dolls."
Reserve seat coupons and
general admission tickets
may be purcnasea irom kos
met Klub workers at $2 and
$1.50, respectively.
Campus "gamblers" have
suffered rather heavy losses
this year.
Many parking-space-seekers
gafnbled a few pennies
against a dollar ticket last
semester a major contri
bution to the $7,100 total in
meter revenues through the
end of the first semester.
According to Campus Police
Capt. Eugene Masters, when
a parking meter shows time
left, many will gamble that
they have enough time to
compete their errands.
"It may be two hours or
two minutes," said Masters,
"but as long as there is a
chance, people will take it."
Other brave souls just fail
to plan ahead.
Sure a nickel gives you
an hour you put a nickel
in for a one hour class
, : .ff.k.
WX' f.!:i;WS Pill
Don't forget you all it's up to us united we stand loyal always sarcastic
never to shout as one we shall never fail to feed the hungry the parking meters.
BUT a teacher doesn't let
class out on the second
you have maybe three
minutes to sprint furiously to
the meter god or off goes
your head plus a dollar fine.
Just one more pennv
would save a dollar any
miser can see that.
Here's another problem that
seems to stump even campus
geniuses finding the right
slot for the dime.
Y'see, there are two little
slots on each meter one
for pennies and nickels, and
one for DIMES and the
catch is if y'do put a dime
in the penny-nickel slot its
tough watermelon pickles
and you lose a dollar because
no time is given at all.
Then of course there's the
ultra-stumper that is
which meter goes with which
stall? Little arrows are
painted on the concrete from
post to stall in the Union
parking lot but snow on
the ground spells' utter ca
tastrophe. Advice from Capt. Masters
pick the meter that faces
you while you're sitting In
the car.
Well mustn't forget the
absent minded geniuses
those who can't recall that
there ARE parking meters
now on the North S e 1 1 e c k
parking lot.
You have to think hard to
forget It, but it is done
admissions from the , guilty
prove It.
Gather round chill'un and
you shall hear not about
old Paul Revere's sprint, but
an example of how you don't
always get out of something
what you put into it like
a parking meter.
It's like this there are
mostly four-hour parking
meters, and some two-hour
parking meters on this cam
pus but there just aren't
any six, eight, ten or 200 hour
meters and I don't care
if you do put FIVE nickels
in a four-hour meter y'still
y'still only get four hour to
dash madly about the campus
and accomplish your reasons
for being here.
Now if you wanta complain
about never being able to find
a slot for your Model T, try
the North Selleck lot but
I warn you it'll cost money
however, what doesn't?
And when you consider
that y'can just drive right
in the little ol' lot and us
ually find one right in the
heart of the giant NU cam
pus well that's some
thing. It also proves how many
misers there are on this
campus, but to use one last
cliche (which journalists are
forbidden to in), it takes all
kinds of people.
Don't forget you all
it's up to us united we
stand loyal always sar
castic never to shout as
one we shall never fail
to feed the hungry the
