Monday, December 17, 1962 The Daily Nebraskan , Page 3 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 campus. 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 problems." 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 comments. "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 ming.

J Frank Woods, son of Nelle Cochrane Woods and trustee of the Woods Charitable Fund, participated Friday in the cornerstone laying cere monies for the University art department build ing which will bear h i s mother's name. The $500,000 classroom building was made possible by a $250,000 grant from the Woods Fund. Woods noted that the trustees " are now carrying out for her a bene faction which circumstances did not permit during her lifetime." Mrs. Woods, an 18 grad uate of the University, served as a trustee of the Nebraska Art Association. Mie died in i 1950 at the age of 80. The building, adjacent to the Sheldon Art Gallery, will house faculty, classrooms and studios of the art depart ment, and provide classrooms for other university depart ments. Frank Woods told the dedi cation audience that "in spke of Mr. Khrushchev's predic tion, I don't believe any of us here today expect that this or any other building here will be 'buried' . and provide a dig for future archeolo- gists." "The lamp of learning will continue here to burn bright ly for centuries," he added, "and with this new teaching' facility, we hope to encour age a larger enrollment of students." Professor Duard Laging, chairman of the art depart ment, praised the Woods j family for its interest in the : human aspects of art, and; noted that "we may all be! sure that the spirit of human ism is not dead." University Regent B. N. Greenberg of York stated that the building "will pro vide a sensitive balance be tween the disciplines of learn ing, living and the arts." The Nelle Cochrane Woods building harmonizes with the new Sheldon Gallery with its exterior of aggregate panels containing travertine marble chips. The art department hopes to begin moving into the structure as early as February.
