Four NU Students
To Attend MMUN
Today In Missouri
Four University students left Lincoln yesterday morn
ing to attend the Midwest Model United Nations (MMUN)
conference at St. Louis, Mo.
Gary Radii, Susan Segrist, JoAnn Strateman and Jef
frey Pokorny will represent the University at the confer
ence. This year's MMUN will be held at the Chase-Park
Plaza Hotel in St. Louis, Wednesday through Saturday. The
Student Council budget is paying all the expenses ' of
the students except their meals.
Gary Radii's committee, economics and finance, will
study the improvement of world market conditions and
the present United Nations bond issue.
Pokorny will attend the conference with the trustee
ship committee as his prime interest.
JoAnn Strateman and her social, humanitarian and
cultural committee will discuss race conflicts in South
Africa, refugees in the Near East, and the controversy
over refugee rights to asylum.
Miss Segrist, attending the meetings of the special
political committee, will help determine the levels of
radiation to which man is currently exposed and the
effects of radiation on individuals and their descendants.
The students are expected to return early Sunday
morning. On their return, they will give a complete re
port of the conferences to the Student Council. They will
also speak to any interested service organizations in
the city who request it.
According to Dennis Christie, these students will at
tempt to reorganize the Collegiate Council on the
United Nations (CCUN), which was first set up last year,
but which was inactive.
The purpose of the CCUN is to inform students on
foreign affairs, said Christie. The -CCUN could hold dis
cussion groups in order to make the University's stu
dents aware of world problems, he said.

Hix, Brewster Report
On Big 8 Conference
"We are very fortunate at
the University, to have satis
factory relations with our ad
minis tr a tion," commented
Jim Hix, Rush Chairman of
the Interfraternity Council
(IFC) after his return from
the Big 8 IFC Conference
last weekend.
Hix and Tom Brewster
were the two IFC delegates
to the conference, which was
held at Norman, Oklahoma.
At the conference, Hix was
elected vice president of the
Big 8 IFC.
In a report on the confer
ence which the two delegates
presented to the IFC last
night, they reported that the
most common complaint
voiced by other delegates to
the conference was that of
extremely poor relations with
the administration.
"Missouri said that they
could not get a pro-greek ar
ticle in the paper, and that
the administration had open
ly stated that it was not in
terested in students wants,
desires or opinions but that
the administration would con
tinue with a dictatorial con
trol. At Oklahoma University
all freshman are now forced
to live in university housing,"
reported Brewster.
Brewster and Hix were
very pleased with the discus
sions at the conference. They
found that in discussing the
problems faced by other Big
8 IFC's, the IFC at the Uni
versity had already solved
the same problems.
Hix and Brewster stat
ed that "we here at the Uni
versity of Nebraska have one
of the most effective Interfra
ternity Councils in the United
States, and we definitely ex
cel over all of the other Big
8 schools."
A motion introduced by the
Rush committee, which would
set up a Spring Rush Week
end to be commenced in the
Spring of 1964, was passed
unanimously. The reasons
given for the additional rush
period were that it would al
low those men who had not
had interest in the fraternity
system at the beginning of the
year a chance to pledge. Al
so it would enable those who
had been prohibited from
pledging due to the IFC's
new scholarship criteria, but
who had received a satisfac
tory University grade aver
age, to pledge.
The committee also point
ed out that there is usually a
lack of interest in rushing
during the second semester,
and that a program such as
this would stimulate frater
nity interest.
The finalists for the IFC's
sophomore scholarship are:
Tom Kort, Beta Sigma Psi;
Glenn Korff, Sigma Phi Epsi

Beta Theta PL
The final schedule for
1963 Greek Week was pre
sented by the Affairs com
mittee. The featured speaker
at the convocation on April 3,
will be Dr. Michael Shugrue,
assistant to the chancellor.
Shugrue, who will speak on
"Survival in the Sixties," is
a "tremendous speaker," ac
cording to Bill Buckley, pres
ident of the IFC.
During the meeting, Mrs.
Norma Stoehr, of the Multi
ple Sclerosis Society, com
mended the Greeks on their
cooperation in the MS Drive
last year, and explained this
year's program to the IFC
members. The entire Greek
System will canvass the city
of Lincoln on April 6, solicit

The recently organized Uni
versity Party for Progress, a
group designed to end irrele
vance in campus politics, has
called its first annual conven
tion for tonight at 7 in the
Student Union Small Auditori
um. Party candidates to run in
Student Council elections will
be elected from the floor at
the convention.
One of the endorsers of the
party has refused to have his
name affiliated with the or
ganization. In a recent inter
view, he said the organization
was interested in changing
the representative system in

Sthmadehe Is Selected
Sport Magazine Queen
Pat Schmadeke, a University sophomore, has been
named Sport Magazine's Campus Queen. The 18-year-old
dental hygiene major was one of five finalists for the title.
Miss Schmadeke was presented a diamond ring mounted
in 14-carat white gold by Joe Kaufman, a local jeweler. The
ring is valued at $750. Dean G. Robert Ross awarded a wrist
watch and battery-operated wall clock to the queen.
, Announcement of the Campus Queen contest winner was
made in the May issue of Sport, which reached the newstands
today. The photographs of Miss Schmadeke also appear in
the magazine.
She was nominated for the title by the University last
year and was selected as one of the five candidates by edi
tors of the magazine. An article about her and her picture
appeared in the magazine in December. Photographs of all
contest finalists ran in the magazine's "February issue, when
readers were requested to mail in post cards naming their
choice for Campus Queen.
Miss Schmadeke is ruch chairman for her sorority, Delta
Gamma, and a finalist for Miss E-Week. She has been Delta
Sigma Pi Rose Queen, one of six 1962 Cornhusker Beauty
Queens, a Miss Wheatheart finalist and finalist for 1962 Jun

2, and Article IV., section lb
All organizational represen

whereby the Student Council
shall be made up entirely of
college representatives. Their
number on the council shall
be increased by dividing the
total in each college by three

Barton explained that the
committee faced a difficult
problem because it deals with
the philosophy of student gov
ernment. He said the committee had
tried to be as objective as
possible and that the prob
lem was not a matter of per
sonalities. The committee
sought to reach a more equit
able plan of representation,
he said.

"They are disgusted with
the fact that the majority of
the campus population, name
ly the independents, are not
being represented on Student
Council," said the anonymous
interviewee.
"I don't understand his sud
den change of heart," said
Karen West, a member of the
Central Council of the party.
"This has nothing to do with
any kind of Greek-Independent
split, if such a thing
exists."

party includes Richard Doug

and Pharmacy Colleges com
bined have less then 500 stu

stands at one representative
for every 500 students.
There are over 1,500 grad
uate students who are not
represented at the present
time on the Council.
The graduate students, in
cluding Dentistry, Law and
Pharmacy students will
have a flexible number of 5
so that representation can in
crease with increased enroll

committee considered a plan
to have two houses, a lower
house and an upper house, but
felt that this was too big of
a jump for the Council to take

was adopted in October. Its
letter of intent was submit
ted to Student Council and
accepted. The constitution
still has to be reviewed by
the Student Council Judiciary
committee, according to Dave
Scholz, chairman of the Judi
ciary committee.
A leaflet distributed by the
Central Council states the
following policies:
"WE CALL for an end to
irrelevance in campus poli
tics. "WE CALL for immediate
action within the framework
of student government, if pos
sible, or outside that frame
work if necessary to end con
ditions that can no longer be
tolerated.
WE CALL for the abolition
of compulsory ROTC. It
would be trite to say that the
program is a waste of time
and money. No program
which attempts to install a
phony patriotism and an un
thinking obedience could be
anything else.
"WE CALL for an end to
racial segregation in all stu
dent living areas.
"WE CALL for changes in
University rules. Many of the
University regulations that go
beyond state law are neither
necessary nor desirable. The
women's rules in particular
are definitely outdated.
"WE CALL for something
more difficult: The end of an
attitude of fear student fear
of the administration, fear of
the "Gree k-Independent
split" (whatever that is), fac
ulty and administration, fear
of the State Senate, the Oma
ha World Herald and every
loud-mouthed reactionary in
the state."
The Progressive Papers
continue: "IF WE WANT
these reforms, we ourselves
must work together for them.
We must wring them out of
those in power,
"THE PLACE to work for
changes, we are told, is the
student government. But stu
dent government at the Uni
versity of Nebraska is better
suited for inane paper-shuffling
than for representing the
students."
"WE CALL for democratic
reforms in student gov
ernment to make that govern
ment able to speak and work
for the students.
"WE CALL a convention of
all members of the University
Party for Progress and of all
who want to join it to nomi
nate candidates for Student
Council, to choose party offi
cers, and to write a platform
that is politically relevant."

for the adoption by Council
of one of these four plans
next week.
Plan 5 was introduced by
Bill Dunklau and consisted of
five main changes in the Stu
dent Council constitution:
Under the present system,
the college representatives
are not able to directly re
port to their constituents, so
the plan proposes district
representation.
The plan would end the
present system of organiza
tional representatives by not
allowing them voting privil
eges. This, he said, would
eliminate duplication of rep
resentation. The plan would end the in
ternally elected holdover
memberships which allow
Council members to have po
sitions of power, but not con
stituents. Council electiontime would
be set at mid-year instead of
the present spring balloting.
The plan would provide for
recall.
Dunklau explained the dis
trict representatives as com
ing from five areas. They are
as follows:
a. One district to include the
Ag campus, which campus
shall be defined as all Uni-versity-o
w n e d property east
of 27th street.
b. One district for each
separate residence hall oper
ated by the Board of Regents
of the University located west
of 27th street.
c. One district to include all
University - owned property
not included in the two pre
viously mentioned districts.'
d. One district to include
all previously unmentioned
University - approved housing
west of 27th street.
e. One district to include all
previously unmentioned University-approved
housing east
of 27th street.
Dunklau explained that the
elections of representatives
within each district shall be
according to the preferential,
or transferable vote system
of voting.
The number of representa
tives from each district would
depend upon the number of
students voting out of the po
tential number of voters m
the district. The bigger the
district, the more potential
representatives it would have.
In other business Student
Council tabled the motion of
last week to recommend the
passage of the Legislative
Bill putting the four teachers
colleges and the University
under one board of education
until Sen. Richard Marvel or
Sen. Marvin Stromer c o u ? d
explain the bill to the Coun
cil. Susie Pierce announced that
summer school worksheets
will be due one week before
finals. Students will be re
quired to secure registration
appointment cards in order to
register. Cards will be avail
able in the Administration
building at least one week be
fore finals.
Registration for summer
school is June 10 in the
Men's PE building. ,
Gass schedules for fall reg
istration will be available the
first week of May and will
be due at the Administration
building one week before fi
nals. Miss Pierce said that tenta
tively, the Registrar's Office
is planning to offer students
the opportunity to pay the $25
deposit at the time they turn
in their worksheets.
Under this arrangement It
would be possible to pay the
$25 any time between the
time a student hands in his
worksheet and July 31. A stu
dent may pay the $25 without
a worksheet simply as a
downpayment on tuition.
