Many Cars
Cause Jam
On Campus
Nebraskan Staff Writer
"What! Area 2? But it's
eight blocks from where
live," exclaimed one on-canr
pus student as he received
his parking permit for the
"Elgin lot."
"We've been gettinz auite
a few complaints about the
parkmg situation this fall.'
commented Captain Eugene
Masters, director of the cam
pus police. "Not only stu
dents but also the faculty has
been complaining of a lack
of parking space." Masters
'One thing most people
don't realize is that the heav
iest traffic of the year comes
at the beginning of the fall
semester. After November
the situation will be better,"
said Masters.
Campus parking lots have
been full for the first time
in campus history. Although
new lots are available, the
number of cars on campus
has increased beyond the
projected limit. The campus
police reported that Monday
morning the Elgin lots and
Area 2 parking lots were full.
Employee Lot Switch
Carl Donaldson, director of
the planning and construction
division of the University,
promotes student use of the
lot directly south of the Elgin
Building. The lot will replace
the present employee lot
which will be shifted to the
north side of the building
The biggest problem days
are Monday, Wednesday, and
Friday, especially during the
peak hours of 9 and 10,"
commented Masters. "Al
though outlying lots seem to
be the only solution, the stu
dents are not in favor of
parking eight or ten blocks
away from their classroom,"
he continued.
Last spring a recommenda
tion from the Student Coun
cil Parking Committee was
forwarded to the campus po
lice suggesting that freshman
be allowed to park only on
the outlying lots. This was
done with the hope that on
c a m p a s parking facilities
would increase.
"The Council recommenda
tion did not specify where
we would put the freshman
cars. With the exception of
the seniors, the freshman
drive more cars than any
other class," explained Mas
ters, "and there is lust no
place they could all park
14th Street Wider
Another innovation this
year in the parking situation
is the widening of 14th street
to a four-lane drive. "No
Parking" signs went up on
the west side of the street
to permit an easier flow of
traffic to and from the fac
ulty parking lots at 14th and
"This has made the con
gestion at the 14th and "S"
corner much less, and it is
hoped the traffic flow will!
be increased," said Masters.
New Dean Tells Policies
Student Affairs Office
To Stress Participation
Nebraskan Staff Writer
Deep from the heart of
Texas comes the new dean
of Student Affairs, G. Robert
The tall, husky, handsome
Dr. Ross believes his first
job here is to learn the "what
and why's" of the University.
"As far as policy is Con
cerned, the staff of Student
Affairs, the faculty and ad
ministration through the Fac
ulty Senate and the students
will participate in any
changes," he explained.'
The native of Kerens, Tex.,
expressed his anxiety to learn
how the Student Tribunal op'
erates, since he has never
worked with this type of stu
dent discipline system.
Foremost Goal
Dr. Ross stated that the
foremost goal of Student Af
fairs is to create learning
situations for students in
every way, since the com
munity, country and world
are placing such high de
mands and pressures on how
much the individual knows
Consequently, each has less
time to spend on unproduo
tive, non-learning situations,
he continued.

'First Glance'
Is Revamped
"First Glance," a Builder's
publication depicting campus
life, has recently received a
face lifting, according to Ka
ren Rasmussen, editor.
The 26-page magazine is
distributed to all Nebraska
high school seniors who rank
in the upper quarter of their
class, and to all college trans
fer students.
Miss Rasmussen said that
this was the first major
change in the publication in
over six years. New additions
to the book are a full color
cover, duotone photographs
inside the pamphlet, and a
revised question and answer
A new section, Campus Cul
ture, features material on the
new Sheldon Art Gallery, the
state house, Nebraska State
Historical Society and the
Ralph Mueler Planetarium.
The purpose of the publica
tion is to give the new stu
dent an overall view of life
at the University. Over 6,000
copies of the new "First
Glance" have been printed by
the University print shop.
Debaters Meet
All students interested in
intercollegiate debate are
to attend the first meeting
of the year tonight at 7:30
p.m. in 210 Temple Build
ing. Dr. Donald Olson, direc
tor of debate, said all in
terested people are urged
to attend this meeting in
order to become acquaint
ed with the program. He
added that previous experi
ence is not a prcrequisle
for college debating.
The national question to
be debated this year is: Re
solved: That all non-communist
nations should form
an economic community.
tration, health and Student
The office of Student Af
fairs supervises the general
relations between students
and the University, as well
as being a liaison with stu
dent activities and organiza
tions such as the Union, fra
ternities and sororities.
Under its direction is the
Junior Division and Counsel
i n g Service, Examinations
Service and Scholarships and
Financial Aids. Discipline
situations, records, foreign
students and the placement
service are also handled by
the office.
It coordinates the activities
of the University Health Serv
ice, other than the medical
aspect, with the activities of
other subdivisions within the
Student Affairs office.
vision is to provide certain
services to the students con
cerning the mundane details
of living," he said. "This pro
vides the student with the
knowhow to accomplish his
various tasks at the Univer
sity." Research functions are the
third duty of the office, ac
cording to Dr. Ross. Studies
are constantly being made on
how well students are pre
pared for college when they
enter, ratio changes in the
enrollment of men and wom
en, where the students come
from, and other student char
acteristic descriptions.
Aims of Office
Dr. Ross, in a recent issue
of the Nebraska Alumnus, ex
pressed his opinions and aims
of the divisions of his office.
"To better realize the needs
of the students, the counseling
service must have close lia
son with the academic de
partments," he advised.
As far as discipline is con
cerned, he noted, a process of
re-education is needed.
Since testing is a method
of obtaining additional infor
mation about students, Dr.
Ross believes this area will
aid in his discoveries about
learning processes.
Placement Area
Through the placement
area, he hopes that studies
can be used to determine what
happens to Nebraska grad
uates, how they could have
been helped more and the
relationship of placement to
the, curriculum program.
"Because activities offer
the opportunity of coming in
to contact with people of oth
er races, financial back
grounds and interests, our in
terest in providing experi
ences for getting those with
different backgrounds togeth
er may be realized," he feels.
Increased scholarship activ
ity, through the scholarships
and financial aids office is
needed," Dr. Ross noted, "be
cause of the increasing com
petition for top scholars.
Active Programs
The new dean believes that
the University needs active
and aggressive dormitory
and fraternity programs.
Fraternities provide an or
ganized way of getting to
gether. There is no question
that significant experience at
the college level lies in the
fraternity and sorority sys
tem. With the dormitories
strengthening, fraternities
and .sororities will be
strengthened," he continued.
Dr. Ross received bis B.S.
degree in agricultural eco
nomics and his M.S. degree
in sociology from Texas
A&M. His Ph. D. in psychol
ogy was obtained from the
University of Denver.
With his wife Bulye, son
Mark, 6 and daughter Robin
Laune, 5, he enjoys reading
and fishing and is also an
amateur handball player.
Ross Gives
'Pep Talk'
To Council
Appearing before the Stu
dent Council in his new posi
tion as Pean of Student Af
fairs, G. Robert Ross ex
plained, "Strengthening the
Student Council is the most
important part of student
government on this canjpus."
"I will help the Council to
strengthen its position where
ever I can be of service,"
Ross continued. "The Student
Council should be aware of
my willingness to work with
its programs and represent
them to the administration of
the University," he added.
Don Burt, newly-elected
Student Council president in
troduced Mrs. Beth Nicker
son and Dr. Robert Hough as
the new Student Council ad
visors for the coming year.
In other business, the res
ignation of Cathy Farner, for
mer Tassels representative,
was accepted. Susan Pierce
will assume duties as the
Tassels Council member for
the coming year.
Dave Scholz, chairman of
the judiciary committee,
commented, "It is hoped that
the student referendum of
1960, in which the resolution
to give the Student Tribunal
final decision conerning all
cases except suspension or
explusion, will be acted npon
by the Faculty Senate early
this fall."
Chairman of the elections
committee, Steve Cass, re
ported that interviews for the
Publication Board will be
held Sunday, Sept. 30.
Final selections for the post
will be decided by the Stu
dent Council on Oct 3.
One person from each of the
sophomore, junior, and senior
classes will be chosen.
Dick Weill, treasurer of
the Council, noted, "The budg
et for the coming year is
nearly $1,200, an increase of
$400 from last year. A part
time secretary will serve the
needs of the Council through
out the coming year."
