tliS - i urn b?r(A I i To Participate 0 -AWL Vol. 76, No. 88 The University Party for Progress (UPP) has chal lenged two members of the Interfraternity Council (IFC) slate for Student Council to a debate which would take place tonight in 234 Student Union at 7:15. The challenge was made through IFC president Bill Buckley in a Tuesday night letter. It was signed by George Kimball and Robert Cherny, two UPP candidates for Student Council. The topic of the debate would be, according to the letter, that the principles em bodied in the platform of the UPP should be enacted by the Student Council. Kimball and Cherny were to uphold the affirmative, said the letter. Cherny said a suggestion for the debate was made at a Central Council meeting of the UPP Monday night. Dis favor or disinterest has been exemplified bv the IFC slate for Student Council because they have not come out with any statement of their own regarding what they favor or oppose, Cherny said. He said the suggestion was favored by a faculty .member whom the Central Council had proposed for a speaker at the UPP convention to night. Buckley said yesterday he could not understand why the lptter was sent to him. "I re- ivprf the letter at 10:45; Tuesday night and the de bate is tonight. That gives whomever would debate from the IFC slate one day of prep aration. And the debate is to be held in front of the UPP convention," Buckley said. "And although I did not re ply to the letter, posters an nouncing the debate have been put up. Also, I believe, it is a matter of protocol to let the challenged choose the time and place of the de bate," he said. If the UPP is serious about this debate and it is not just an attempt to gain publicity, it seems to me that tbey would have contacted the Arts and Sciences candidates for Student Council whom they are challenging and done better planning, he added. "Student Council is a seri ous thing. I question, with tactics of this kind, whether they are serious," Buckley said. Cherny said that he feels the basic areas of disagree ment will best be shown in a String Ensemble To Play Tonight The Faculty String Quartet and Dr. Norman Grossman will be featured at the Con temporary Symposium to night at 8 p.m. in the Social Science Auditorium. Dr. Grossman, a visiting professor of theory from Juil lard and Peabody Conserva tory of Music, will present "Fantasia for Piano." The Faculty String Quartet will present "Movimento Serio." The public is invited to at tend free of charge. Council Hopefuls To Have Meeting All students running for Stu dent Council college repre sentatives must attend an or ientation meeting to be held in 332 Student Union at 5 p.m. today. If a candidate cannot attend, he or she should have a sub stitute there. The purpose of this meeting is to outline campaign rules and publicity for toe general election. Yearbook Applications Are Due Tomorrow Applications for paid staff positions on the 1564 Corn husker are due tomorrow at noon in 306 Burnett Hau. in terviews will be held April 23, starting ai 4 p.m. All questions should be di rected to the senior staff of the 1363 Cornhusker in M-A, Student Union basement. DIFC s Slate IFoir C The Daily . , . Buckley Questions public"" debate where both sides can- present their views under specific rules. "We have no longer to pre pare for the debate than the candidates we challenged," he said. "We started prepa ration yesterday and there is no time advantage for either side," he added. "We, as UPP representa tives, expect to bring the is sue out in the open with the varying views of the candi dates so the student body will know how both sides feel," he said. There will be no decision given, he said. The people at the debate can listen and decide on the issues for them selves, as we merely present the issues," he said. The platform of the UPP which would be the subject of the debate includes: 1. ) We Stand in favor of the Nebraska Student Coun cil's affiliation with the Na tional Student Association (NSA). Although there has been some criticism of the organization, we feel that the best way to change it is from the inside, not from staying outside it and condemning it from there. We further feel that there is much to be gained from association in the area of contact with other campuses throughout the na tion. In addition, the NSA maintains international con tacts which would not other wise be available. 2. ) We stand in favor of the amendment to the Student Council Constitution proposed by Bill Dunklau. This pro v i d e s for the following changes: 1.) to change from college and organizational to district representation on a Council of thirty members chosen by the single trans ferable vote system of pro portional representation, rep resentation from the districts to be based on its vote in the current election; 2.) to allow all students to run for Student Council who will be eligible to serve during the term for which they seek election; 3.) to permit the newly-elected Student Council to choose its own officers from its own membership; 4.) to explicitly guarantee each student a se cret ballot in Student Council elections; 5.) to give the resi dents of a district the right to recall their elected repre sentatives. 3. ) We stand in favor of an end to discrimination against University students, both on and off campus. Toward this end, we have established a '' , I ""' "Ni " i f - MPS TO MEASURE PRESSURE DEVICES Engineers are interested in all torts of pressure exerting devices, including the two high heeled shoe pictured above. Evr since Adm com plained of the loss of a rib, the little woman has exerted pressure of one tort or another. With the advent of high heeled shoes, the magnitude of pressure she exerts will amaze any man. The mechanical engineers will evaluate how much pressure each coed who visits E-Week Open House on Thursday, April 25, can exert through her high-heels. Nebroskan eon committee of three to investi gate conditions and report to the Central Council, which would then publicize the re sults of this investigation and promote action designed to alleviate the situation. 4.) We stand in favor of an end to compulsory ROTC on the University campus and strongly urge any and all Student Council representa tives elected with Party sup port to initiate Student Coun cil action in this area. One part of the UPP plat form would not be considered in the debate, since it is a party matter, Cherny said. That part states: We stand in favor of Party action de signed to publicize the Stu dent Council elections and candidates to all students, Buckley: Won't Take Place By JOHN LONNQUIST Nebraskan Staff Writer Bill Buckley, president of the Interfraternity Council, announced last night that de bate between the candidates for Student Council who are supported by the IFC and those who are supported by the University Party for Prog ress, will not take place. Buckley said that the UPP debate posters placed around the campus yesterday were printed without IFC verifica tion that a debate would be held. Buckley said that he had received a letter last night from two members of the group stating that they want ed IFC members to debate the UPP's platform. Continuing, Buckley said that the IFC is not a political party. It only supports men whom it feels are well-qualified and would be of benefit to the University if elected to the Student Council. The IFC does not have a platform of any kind, and does not dictate anything to the men whom it supports. Each of these men, he said, are independent candidates, running on then own merits. Dick Weill, a University de- bater and member of the Stu - dent Council who attended the meeting, said that in a de bate, the group which is chal lenged has the right to phrase the question to be debated, and also to set the time and ; Thursday, April 11, 1963 yoDCQ Party's Tactics and, specifically, to the Lin coln off-campus students. Of the above parts of the UPP platform number one would have to be adopted by resolution and number two would require a constitutional change, Cherny said. Num bers three and four would have to take the form of strong recommendations to the administration, he said. Number two could be ac complished this year if placed on the Spring ballot, he said. "The other three would have to be done next year because there is not suf ficient time to do them ade quately this year," he said, "but we are strongly in favor of them being carried out next year." Debate place for the debate. None of these privileges were grant ed to the IFC candidates by the challengers in this case. The two members of t h e UPP have been sent a letter giving the IFC's position on the subject. Dave Smith, vice president of the IFC and the group's representative to the Student Council, asked for the support of the IFC members concern ing the upcoming Master's program.

The resolution read as fol lows: "Whereas, it is the respon sibility of the Cheerleading Squad to publicly inform all ! interested parties of the dates and times of cheerleading practices and tryouts. "Whereas, the Cheerleading Squad failed to officially or unofficially notify and inform living units, Lincoln students, and the spirit organizations, Tassels and Corncobs, of eli gibility requirements, avail able positions, practices and tryouts.
