Council Members
Attend Conference
Delegates Endorse Concert Series
And Peace Corps Committees
Don Burt, president of the
Student Coundl, led the Uni
versity delegation to the Big
Eight Student Government
Association (BESGA) conven
tion which was held at the
University of Missouri over
the weekend.
With Burt, Dennie Christie,
Ann Wahl and Chip Kuklin
attended the two-day confer
ence of Big Eight student
leaders. In addition, Wendy
Rogers, representing the Dai
ly Nebraskan editorial staff,
and staff writers Sue Hovik
and Jim Moore, covering the
convention for the newspaper,
attended the session.
In Burt's statement con
cerning the accomplishments
of the BESGA meeting, he
points out that the conven
tion endorsed the Big Eight
Concert Series, Quiz Bowl
program, and Peace Corps
committees on each Big Eight
The concert series will at
tempt to "contract bigtime
entertainment on a coopera
tive basis" for each member
school of the Big Eight.
Quiz Bowl
The Quiz Bowl endorsement
reflects an attempt to pro
mote academic competition
on each campus using the
idea of the television pro
gram, "College Bowl."
Each university would se
lect "varsity scholars" to
compete within the Big Eight
for academic honors. The
"Quiz Bowl" would use the
method of quick recall of
facts and would not be an
essay contest.
The establishment of a
Peace Corps committee under
BESGA structure to stimulate
interest in the Corps on each
goal of an active program
on each Big Eight campus.
In addition, the meeting al
so raised the annual dues of
member schools in the
BESGA to $100 per school
year to enable the new of
ficers to be more active dur
ing the coming year.
Poorly Organized
In general comment part of
his report, Burt states, "The
conference was poorly organ
ized and was hardly worth
the time of the delegates who
came hundreds of milps to
seek solutions for mutual
Continuing, he comments,
"We feel, in eeneral. that th
conference offered us prac
tically no help m solving the
problems that we, as a Stud
ent Council, face at the Uni
versity." "No discussion time was al
lowed or planned for concern
ing the basic goals of stud
ent government," the report
continues. "Such programs as
the Quiz Bowl and the Con
cert Series are certainly
worthwhile, but they are not
the ultimate in student eov-
ernment endeavors," Burt
"Since no time was devoted
to discussing basic goals,
these programs seem some
what meaningless," the re
port concludes.
No Conclusions
Dennie Christie, member of
the delegation and now vice
president of the BESGA, com
mented, "There were no prob
lems presented to us to dis
cuss before we went; natur
ally, no conclusions resulted."
Concerning migration, a top
ic brought forward at t h e
convention by the Nebraska
delegates, Christie com
mented, "None of the Big
Eight schools have an official
migration but they all go,
anyway.". .
Christie felt the delegates
had no common ground upon
wmcn to discuss mutual prob
lems. "In fact," he quipped,
"we really didn't have any
thing mutual to talk about."
Christie noted, as the new
vice president of the BESGA,
that he hopes to rectify this
situation in the coming year
by effective, advance plan
ning and specific program

Ret a good core of men to
start the fraternity at NU.
Barnes, founders of the PTP
program, spoke to the chair
men explaining the basic
purposes of the organization.
"PTP is not to be consid
ered just another activity,
nor is it a group of do-gooders,"
Dawson said. 'The
student of today is an inter
national student, and must
learn to live in the interna
tional community," he con
tinued. Dawson said, "The basic
goal of PTP is to educate
American and foreign stu
dents in their responsibili
ties to today's world."
The PTP national organiza
tion has planned an Interna
tional conference in Kansas
City next August and is cur
rently directing the establish
ment of a work-camp where
American and foreign stu
dents can learn to under
stand and comprehend dif
ferent cultures.
In other business at the
convention, the PTP chair
men discussed effective
means of communication be
tween national and local
organizations, and established
the Big Eight PTP newslet
ter to facilitate direct" com
munication within the Big
Eight conference. ,
