NSA Head to Speak To Students April 16; Council Vote Delayed The Student Council vote on University affiliation with the National Student Association (NSA) has been postponed un til April 13 by a vote of 23-8 to make it possible for Ed Garvey, president of the NSA to address the student body Monday, April 16. USNSA Report The Student Council's USNSA study committee sub mitted its 38-page report on structure, finances, and NSA value to the University at the Council Wednesday. Included in the report is the entire NSA Constitution; the March 1962. financial re port; a three-levtl description of NSA's regional set-up, na tional organization and the role of the National Execu tive Council; and an analysis of the relations and benefits of NSA to the University. NSA study committee co chairman John Abrahamzon noted that the report con tained no stands either pro or con on the NSA. 'Specific issues which face NSA or which it has taken stands on were also deleted," said Abrahamzdh, "since these issues have been widely disciissed and studied in the Daily Nebraskan and in cam pus organizations." Butler Answers NSA study committee mem- ber Nancy Butler answered the objection of Al Plummer on the omission of the Har vard University minority re port favoring continued affil iation with USNSA. Parts of the majority report, which Council to Hold NSA Discussion In Student Union The Student Council execu tive committee will hold an open discussion on the Na tional Student Association (NSA) Tuesday at 3 p.m. in the Student Union. : "The panel discussion will allow all students and groups on campus to come before the Council executive committee and ask any questions they have about the NSA," said Council President Steve Gage. Groups wishing to ask spe cific Questions of the execu tive council should contact Gage through the Student Council office by Monday noon, submitting the questions tney aesire to asK. with grants-in-aid to athletes in the Big Eight Conference.

We did not include the Harvard University minority report, since we understood that the Nebraskan was plan ning to make copies of both the majority and the minor ity reports available," said Miss Butler. "Our prime objective was to present only that material which is current and unbi ased," read the preface to the NSA report. NSA studv committee co- chairman is Jeanne Garner. Members were Steve Abbott, Roger Anderson, Nancy But ler. Vickv Cullen. Bob Cun ningham, Kathy Mads en, Larry Roos, Darrel Rogers, Doug Thorn and Tom Wright. Other Business In other Council business, election chairman Don Witt announced that forms needed for filing for Student Council will be available in the Stu dent Affairs office Monday. The forms must be secured bv both college and organi zational representatives. CCIIN chairman Bill Buck ley reported that University students H. P.

In four of the five Big Eight sports completed for the cur rent school year, the cham pion in that sport also leads the conference in number of boys on grants-in-aid for that sport.

The onlv snort in which this doesn't hold true is wrestling wnere ukianonia witn au wres tlers receiving aid finished second to Oklahoma State with its 19 wrestlers on grants-in-aid. Wins, Grants Relationship Rut. using figures obtained individually from each of the athletic directors in the i con ference, the relation between winning and number of grants stands ud in football, basket ball, track, and swimming. (The figures do not include sports in which there is no championship competition in the Big Eight. This excludes such sports.as gymnastics and skiing from the charts.) For instance. Colorado's Big Eight football champions topped the list of football players receiving aid with 110. Not all ot these were tun erants. which is also the case at all schools. The Buffaloes also led in monev snent with $146,064 for football grants. Money fig ures, however, must ne care fully weighed because of vary ing costs at the difterent schools for tuition, room ana board. According to Big Eight reg ulations, the maximum an athlete may receive is tuition, registration fees, room, board, books, and ?15 per monui tor laundry and incidentals. The $15 per month is limitea to football and basketball at most schools. , Athletic Dormitory Oklahoma, for example, has no room costs because it op erates its own athletic dormi tory. The last place team in foot ball, Kansas State, had 84 players on grants-in-aid. Only Iowa State with 75 was lower. Nebraska's 85 grants put it in a tie for 5th with Okla homa in number of grants. However, Oklahoma finished fourth and the Huskers tied for sixth in the standings. Colorado also leads in bas ketball grants with 30. And the Buffaloes won the Big Eight title in that sport also. Kansas, the lowest school in hasketball grants with 19. fin ished in a last-place tie with Missouri. Nebraska witn one more grant than Kansas fin ished in a tie tor bin. Sorority, Fraternity Problems Theme To be Given at Greek Week Talks Harold Angelo. dean of men at the University of C o 1 o rado, will speak on "Sorority and Fraternity Problems at the Greek Week Convocation at 7:30 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom. Dean Angelo, a member of Phi Kappa Tau fratnerity, re ceived his B.S. degree from Mississippi State University and received an L.L.B. and M.B.A. from the University of Michigan. He served as associate pro fessor of business administra tion and assistant dean at the Amos Tuck Graduate School of Business Adminis tration, Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire, from 1955-59. He was appoint ed dean of men at Coloardo at that time. He was a member of the National Council of Phi Kap pa Tau from 1953 till 1959, and has been national presi dent since that year. In connection with Greek Week, 1,200 fraternity and Dr, Palmer Uses Freedom of Speech In Rebuttal to Mean's Recent Charge "l think it is my duty to say what I think, It is part of my American freedom." This was the reply of Dr. Edgcr Palmer, professor of statistics, to charges that, he either resign or be fired be cause of statements made dur ing a debate at a recent Peo-ple-to-People meeting. The charges were made by Dr. Arden V. Means, candi date for the Board of Re gents, after the meeting in which Dr. Palmer said the "the United States should disarm and become a weak nation. When a nation be comes dominate, the others (nations) unite against it." The same story holds true in track with Big Eight cham pion Kansas leading the schools in track . grants. The Jayhawks have 31 athletes on track grants. Iowa State, last-place finisher, gives only 12 track grants. Oklahoma State leads in baseball scholarships with 17 and is perennial Big Eight champion in the sport. The conference's swimming champion is nearly always Oklahoma and the Sooners top the grants in that sport with 12. The only sport where the comparison between grants and standings falls down is in wrestling. Oklahoma State, the Big Eight mat champion, gives 19 grants while Okla homa second-place finisher, heads the chart with 30. Kansas State's 25 wrestlers receiving some form of aid is misleading since only $5,519 is split among these 25. Judge Money, Number In many other instances one must judge both the mon ey and the number of grants to come up, with a fair ap praisal. A good case for this is Iowa State which ranks last in foot ball grants, but in money spent on these grants ranks fourth. Mainly responsible for this is the large number of out-of-state players receiving aid, thus doubling the tuition cost. Numbers in parentheses show team's finish in that sport.

Harold Goff, publicity chair Dr. Means said, "It is in conceivable to me that this man who desires this impo tent status for the United States could possibly do a proper job to advance Ne braska in his office as direc tor of business research. "Although Dr. Palmer is a Quaker, the Board of Regents and University Administration should act to question his mo tives, which 'seek to destroy our faith in the traditions and Institutions which are the guardians of individual liber ty. The right of academic freedom to teach is balanced by the obligation to be honest and forthright in that which is taught." A- j This aid refers to money given in compliance with Big Eight and NCAA regulations and does not take into ac count any money such as is under study at Colorado, or that brought Oklahoma a probationary sentence from the NCAA, or that has brought investigations at two other conference schools. For a high school graduate to qualify for financial help, he must have ranked in the upper two-thirds of his grad uating class or earn a per centile rank of at least 50 on a test prepared by the con ference. $1.3 Million in Grants The Big Eight grants-in-aid represent a payroll of $1.3 million paid to 1,396 athletes for the current school year. Some would call it a fair sized business venture. Oth ers contend that it is not a business. Whenever discussions arise over athletic scholarships the question, "Is it worth it?" is always asked. Those who contend that it is worth it can point to the standings in various sports. Gordy Chalmers, athletic director at Iowa State, points out, "The proportion of a school's success is relative to the scholarships available." Whether you call it a busi ness or not, it has been grow ing by leaps and bounds in BIG 8 GRANTS-IN-AID & STANDINGS 1961 man of the Lincoln Multiple Sclerosis chapter, said the one-day fund drive will re place the chapter's usual money-raising effort during the spring. In reply, Dr. Palmer stated "I did not use the word "weak," nor did I imply that the United States should be come weak in any way, I ar gued for the reduction of arms in a debate with a mill tary man, which has got noth ing to do with teaching." When asked about the charge that he "should resign or be fired immediately Dr. Palmer said that he had no plans" for either, and. "I don't think he really means it." "I do not mention this in my classes, which are sta tistics' courses, because it is not pertinent," Dr. Palmer concluded. the past few years. If it con tinues to grow at the present rate, by 1967 Big Eight schools will be spending ap proximately $2 million on grants-in-aid. 60 Per Cent Increase The figure has jumped by 60 per cent since 1956-57. In that year, conference schools spent $811,104 for 966 boys. Today they are spending $1,354,264. Part of this increase can be accounted for by the addi tion of Oklahoma State to the conference, but it doesn't ac count for the entire total. Again the question comes up. Is it all worth it?. Some say it is while others contend that the days of pure ama teurism were better. Among those in the latter category are such as George (Potsy) Clarke, former Ne braska athletic director, who says, "No matter how much is spent, at least four teams are going to finish in the sec ond division. Four Waste Money "Only four of the teams can finish in the upper division so that means whatever the oth er four spent is wasted," he continues. Iowa State's Chalmers says he would favor returning to the days before all-out re cruiting.
