"Nebraska must either de
cide to strengthen a concen
trated effort in higher educa
tion" or continue to weaken a
separate one," restated Sen.
Marvin Stromer, in reference
to a board of education that
would cover both the teach
ers colleges and the Univer
sity. Senators Stromer'and Rich
ard Marvel introduced two
plans to the Legislature call
ing for'a board of education
to govern the state schools
of higher education. One of
these would be proposed by
supporters of the bill at the
next Legislative session if it
were passed.
Plan A calls for the Uni
versity and teachers colleges
to merge in "The University
of. Nebraska." The govern
ment of this institution would
be in a board of higher edu
cation. The general government of
the University and state
teachers colleges would be
vested in a board of higher

People of Nebraska have
trouble appropriating money
for higher education and
we're going on the belief that
those who suffer the most are
the students because of a
cheapened faculty which be
comes second rate, he con
tinued. "It is not an effort to get
back the funds we think we
should have, but rather an
effort to get the largest re
turn on the money spent on
higher "education," explained
Stromer. The dollar spent
would equal the dollar re
turned, he said.
The budget for higher edu
cation would go to one board
which could spent it where
needed, rather than two
boards, he said.
The bill is an independent
effort and is not Governor
Morrison's bill, emphasized
Sen. Stromer.
Existing efforts in such
fields as journalism and den
tistry will not be duplicated
elsewhere under the central
ized program, but new ven
tures would be placed in the
area concerned, said Sen.
Stromer. This will help pre
vent a possibility of faculty
raiding within the state.
He said that when students
get into the junior, senior
and graduate levels, it costs
two to five times as much
to educate them as it does
in the lower grades.
Kansas spent a large sum
of money to have an inde
nendent nanel of advisors re
view the higher education in
stitutions in the state and re
port on the possibility of a
merger. The Nebraska legis
lator said that Kansas took
bold steps towards this by in
eluding the University of

Kansas. The University of
Kansas City has petitioned to

whv Nebraska didn't benefit
from the Kansas study.

Regenf Peterson Sought
Group To Weigh Charges
Nebraskan Staff Writer
A motion to investigate the policies of the Daily
Nebraskan failed to receive a second at the Board of
Regents meeting yesterday. Regent Val Peterson
made the motion.
Peterson moved that "The Board of Regents re
quest the president of the Nebraska Press Association
appoint a committee of three to weigh charges made
recently against the DaUy Nebraskan and to make
public its findings."
The charges referred to in the motion were those
made by Ray Simmons, Fremont attorney and former
state senator. Simmons issued a 32-page booklet charg
ing that University students are being "indoctrinated
with controversial and extreme political philosophies."
The Daily Nebraskan favors liberal political views
while playing down the conservative side, charged Sim
mons. "The Daily Nebraskan is not a free newspaper but
is an adjunct of the University of Nebraska under the
authority of this Board," said Peterson.
"The editors must realize that their policies reflect
not only on themselves but also on the University and has
a dollar and cent relationship to the University."
Regent B. N. Greenberg, president, oronght forth the
policy of the Board of Regents concerning student publica
tions. The policy was established in 1918 and reaffirmed
in 1961.
The statement says: "It is the declared policy of the
Board that publications under its jurisdiction shall be
free from editorial censorship on the part of the
Board . . "
Peterson had previously called for an investigation
of the Daily Nebraskan. At that time he said, "As chair
man, I would suggest either Hyde Sweet of Nebraska
City or Earl Marvin of Beatrice."
In a letter to Dr. William Hall, director of the School
of Journalism, Sweet said, "It would be quite disagreea
ble to me to be Involved in any such inquiry and I am
against it heartily.
"My theory is that unless those "kids preach treason
or sedition let them blow off steam," said Sweet "'I am
sure in due course they'll come down to earth if, for
that, matter, they ever left terra firma in the first place.
"Please get it from me that I am 'agin any participa
tion such as mentioned above and, of course, I am
heartily in disapproval of censorship of any kind," Sweet
continued. "I still stand for the First Amendment to the
Bill of Rights."
Greenberg presented the letter to the Board of Re
gents. In a joint statement, Dr. Hall and Neale Copple, ad
visor to the student newspaper, said, "We are pleased
with the decision of the Board of Regents upholding the
long-standing principles of press freedom at the Univer
sity. "Our opposition to the suggestion was based entirely
upon the circumstances of this case. We understand Pe
