Nolon,Tells IFC
To Begin Work
Nebraskan Staff Writer
John Nolon, president of the Interfraternity Council
(IFC), told IFC committee chairman that the organization
has a "lead in the seat of the pants problem."
He said that only two committees rush and fraternity
management have been doing their jobs the way they
should be done.
The special meeting was called as Nolon put it "to re
evaluate, and inspire the committees and their chairmen to
begin working."
"Beginning last year, No
lon said, we had a competent
and 'Gung Ho' group, but you
have fallen down this year.
Everything the IFC does is
done in committees, and if
they don't function then the
organization as a whole
doesn't function."
Done Nothing
He said that the IFC com
mittees have done nothing in
the areas of communications,
leadership, and projects. It's
gotten so bad, he said that
we only need a meeting about
once every three weeks to
take care of business.
"Organizationally we a r e
OK, now all we need are the
projects to work on," Nolon
He asked each committee
chairman to tell what they
had been doing.
Jim Hix, chairman of the
rush committee said that his
committee was looking into
the possibility of using anj
IBM machine to take some
of the immense amount of
paper work, and to alleviate
the all night sessions during
rush week. Rush committee
members are going to give
talks on fraternities in the
main high schools throughout
the state. They also have
been studying the advantages
of a "deferred rush week."
Quartile System
The scholarship committee
headed by Dennis Christy is
following up the "quartile"
system which was used during
fraternity rush week this year.
The committee placed each

County Extension
Ag News Editor
There are 180 University
acuity members who spend
most of their time miles away
from the campuses of Lincoln
and Omaha.
According to William D.
Lutes, University Extension
educator, these "outstate fac
ulty members" are also part
of the administrative branch
of the federal government.
"This dual appointment keeps
Nebraska's 180 county and
home extension agents
abreast of the latest develop
ments in their fields by keep
ing them in touch with U. S.
Department of Agriculture re
searchers as well as research
done by the University's wide
spread faculty, Lutes said.
"These County Agents are
very popular with people in
their areas,

said Janike. County agents
are experts, or know people
who are experts, on almost
any question. "If someone
comes into a county office
with a problem," said
Janike, "the agent knows
where to go for the answer."
For instance, Extension Ad

pointed to Clark Jenson, Oma

calls from yard and garden

The vote was 17 against, 4
for and 6 abstaining.
Steve Christensen, Law Col
lege representative, said that
he hoped the resolution would
not be misconstrued but that
it was intended to show that
if the University wanted to
kick someone out of school,
it should require more than
membership in a sub rosa to
do it.
Chip Kuklin retorted by
saying that by definition
membership in a sub rosa is
worthy of expulsion. He clar

saying that they preached de

Redman Introduces Plan
To Raise Parking Fees
Nebraskan Staff Writer
A resolution to increase the
parking permit fee for student
and faculty cars from one to
five dollars, effective next
year, passed in Student Coun
cil meeting yesterday.
The motion. - introduced by
Dale Redman, chairman of
the parking committee, comes
as a result of allocation of
state funds concerning park
ing lots.
"The state will provide no
funds for the purchase of
lands solely for student park
ing lots," Redman explained.
"This motion would provide
funds solely for parking lots."
The land which the Univer
sity could buy for parking lots
extends north of the E 1 g i n
building to the State Fair
Most of the land would be
leased, as values in the area
range to $43,000 an acre.
Redman pointed out that the
subsequent increase in park
ing revenue would approach
$45,000 yearly. "This would
permit an estimated 75-100
more parkings stalls per
year," he continued.
An eventual outcome of the
program might be assigned
parking stalls to specific in
dividuals. "In later years,
parking fees for stickers
might increase according to
the lot in which an individual
wishes to park," Redman

Membership Is
For Suspension
He explained that in the
past, the purpose of sub
rosas has been to control the
campus politically. He point
ed out that in 1955 Student
Council was reorganized be
cause it had been abolished
in 1952 because most of the
members were members of
sub rosas and the Council
had become stagnant.
Kuklin said that other or
ganizations were purged in
the same way. "No good
comes by people obtaining of
fices through sub rosa mem
bership," Kuklin commented.
Yousef Meshiea, NIA rep
resentative, pointed out that
some students probably
joined the organization to
find out what it was like and
didn't realize what they were
actually getting into and that
these students should not be
expelled from school for this

said. "The lots further away
would require a less expen
sive parking sticker," he ex
plained. In other business, Chip Kuk
lin, chairman of the public
issues committee, announced
that the University would rep
resent France, Algeria or In
dia in the Midwest Model

spring in St. Louis.
Dan Rosenthal, newly-selected
representative from the
f ouncil on Religion, was

The committee to study a
possible "official" migration

s i o n dairy
man has been traveling all
over the state in recent
months to arrange meetings
of dairymen in Beatrice, Fre
mont, Norfolk, Grand Island,
Superior, and North Platte.
The dairymen have dis
cussed ways of curing masti
tis in cows.
Mastitis causes milk to look
like poor quality cottage
cheese. Such milk is branded
by all health authorities as
unfit for human consump
tion, and it cannot be sold
to milk processors.
Kuklin replied that any sub
rosa member can get out by
signing an affidavit in the
Administration ' office that
says he is no longer a mem
ber. Mike Barton said that he
did not like the idea that stu
dents do not have the right
to free association. He ad
mitted that there are wrongs
in sub rosas and that they
should be off campus, but he
also questioned the right of
the University to expel them.
Christensen said that
the University is punishing
somebody for their beliefs
rather than action. He agrees
that it is right to kick some
one out if they are caught
drinking or painting.
Barton replied to Christen
sen's argument that belief
necessary implies that mem
bers do break laws ana ad
ded that he does not believe
you legislate morality. "Only
social pressure will take sub
rosas off the campus," he
Bill Gunlicks advocated
passing the resolution, but
pointed out that he does not
support sub rosas. He said
that the motion deals with
whether Administration has
the right to expel members
who are inactive.
Kuklin said that in the
charter of the University, the
students have no rights be
cause they sign them away
when they register. They
have the right to attend
classes, and the rest of the
activities are just privileges,
he continued.
Barton asked the Council
to remember that last week
they passed a resolution stat
ing approval of the Adminis
tration's actions in this affair.
Whereas, II is deemed manifestly un
just and contrary to the principles of
a democratic society that the mere fact
of association with or membership in
any given group be the only basis of
official obloquy, sanctions, punishments,
and ostentatious publicity i and
Whereas, the students of any univer
sity community should be accorded
reasonable standard of fairness i
Now therefore be it resolved thai the
Student Council of the University of
Nebraska go an record as favoring the
following provisions and respectfully
requesting their implementation:
1.) Membership In ' any sub rosa or
ganiiatlon shall not be sufficient in and
of itself to subject any individual to
expulsion or suspension from the Uni.
versity of Nebraska.
!.) Further, that in no hearing or
trial, whether auasi-Judtcial. adminis
trative, inquisitorial, accusatorial, or
whatever, which has its purpose the
probable or possible suspension or ex
pulsion of any University student, shall
the admission of any testimony or
other evidence as to the student's
membership in any sub rosa organisa
tion be allowed.
3.) Further, that in no event should
this resolution be construed to depre
cate lust punishment for acts of van
dalism, but as request that such
punishment be uniformly applied to
all. Irrespective of organisational mem
bership. Whereas parking an the University
of Nebraska campuses Is an ever in
creasing problem and
Whereas there Is as provision la the
University budget for the purchase of
land specifically for parking facilities
Whereas it Is the desire of the stu

Shice farmers can't sell

This problem is more grave
than it may seem, for the

which he may milk with no
good reason for doing so. A

may a bull.
