Benting Is Chosen
In Second Balloting
The judiciary committee of

me aiuaent uouncu iasi ween
invalidat-d the election of Jim
Moore as Builders repre ,enta
tiv. to the 1963-64 Council.
The action came after an of'
ficial protest was filed by Ann
Wahl and Linda Reno. Those
two and other Builders mem
bers felt that the election did
nor represent opinions ex
pressed before the voting took
place, Miss Reno said.
Several Builders members
counted at least seven people
who had voted for Karen Bent
ing, according to Ick Weill,
next year's chairman of the
judiciary committee.
In the official election re
suits printed in the Daily Ne
braskan of May 8, Moore was
credited with 10 of fourteen
votes and Miss Benting three
In the second voting of
Builders members last week,
Miss Benting was elected as
the new Council representa
tive for the organization.
Tiavp Rphnh.. nresent chair
man of the judiciary commit
tee, said that he based his de
cision to invalidate the elec
tion on at least two factors.
One was that the ballots were
left in the council office in the
Student Union anywhere from
three days to a week before
elections committee chairman
Steve Hon'-y picker them up.
There was time for foul
play, but' whether the ballots
were actually tampered with
while in the office is not
known, Scholz said.
In addition the Builders ex
ecutive committee admitted
opening and counting the bal
lots before placing them in
the Council's office, he said.
Apparently, the ballots were
counted, but not tabulated.
Honey confirmed Scholz'
statement that some time had
elapsed between the time the
ballots were placed in the of
fice, in a sealed envelop, and
the time he picked them up.
There was no Student Coun
cil proctor at the first voting
of Builders members, Scholz
said. Generally, elections com
mittee members have not
proctored organization e 1 e c
tions, he said.

rehearsing for the new show "Much Ado About Nothing,"
which will make its debut on May 15. The actors are: Mari
lyn Longo, Frank Vybiral, Jim Hamsa, and Jim Baffico.
Much Ado' Opens
At Howell Theatre
"Much Ado About Nothing," a comedy of wit and
manners by William Shakespeare opens Wednesday at
the University Howell Memorial Theater. The play will
continue through Saturday evening.
"Much Ado About Nothing" is a double romance
drama involving two soldiers home from the war; Cladio,
quickly falls in love with Hero, a local heiress, and Bene
dict, infinitely sophisticated, protests his disregard for
womankind while he becomes quietly enmeshed with the
heiress' cousin Beatrice.
As the play progresses, the young warrior gains
knowledge of a nasty story dealing with the chastity of
his intended. As a result, he renounces his fiancee pub
licly in church. She faints, he stalks out and the word
is passed that she actually died of remorse.
This leads to no end of trouble. The elder soldier
challenges his young friend to a duel, old loyalties are
dissolved but at the crucial moment the bumbling con
stable, Dogberry, comes up with the crook.
The play is noted for humor which seems always
contemporary, a universal laugh-getter which would have
likely made Shakespeare famous on broadway today.
Student cast members include: Beatrice, played by
Maurenn Frazier; Benedict, played by Fred Gaines; Jim
Baffico, Leo Caito, Vaclav Hamsa, Frank Vybiral, Lee
Nelson, Elijah Powell, Raymond Stanek, Friedemann
Bender, John Turner, Delvyn Epp, Don Cruise, J. Ed

Gets Recognition
From Europeans
Dr. Wesley Meierhenry,
University professor of his
tory and principles of educa
tion, has been notified that
one of his contributions to
audio-visual communications
has been translated and pub
lished in Milan.
The special issue on new
techniques in education,
edited by Meierheny, is re
garded as a milestone in
learning theory and its rela
tionship to the use of audio
aids in instruction.
The reprinted Audio-Visual
Communication Review noted
that Meie-henry headed the
committee directing the spe
cial grant that the Teaching
Film Custodians made to the
Research Committee.
As a result of Meierhenry's
work, thousands of European
educators, in addition to all
professors dealing with audio
visual instruction in the Unit

Meierhenry has been work
ing for the past 10 years on
developing better theoretical
analysis of how people learn

Letter Cites
John Nolan
John Nolon, past president
of the Innocents Society, has
been nominated for Outstand
ing Nebraskan.
According to the letter, it
would be easy to recount the
number of offices that he has
held, the number of activities
in which he has served or his
academic record.
"There is one characteris
tic, however, which places
John above the calibre of. the
ordinary student possessing a
comparable academic and ac
tivities record. The spirit with
which John participates in ac
tivities, making them more
than work accomplished, po
sitions earned or honors re
ceived, mark him as a Uni
versity leader of exceptional
Probably the best example
of his dedication is the man
ner in which he conducted
himself as president of the
Innocents Society.
He brought renewed dignity
to the Society, and under his
leadership one of the most
outstanding projects at the
University this year the seat
belt and safety promotion
campaign was a recognized
His attitude, the manner in
which he works with others,
his dedication to high ideals
and the University communi
ty, make John Nolon an indi
vidual who is more than de
serving of the title, Outstand
ing Nebraskan.
Nolon's activities have in
cluded: president of Interfrat
ernity Council, member of
Student Council, vie e-presi-dent
of Big Eight Student
Government Association, as
sistant business manager of
Cornhusker, seer e t a r y and
president of Phi Delta Theta
and 1961-62 Outstanding Col
legiate Man.
Nominations for Outstand
ing Nebraskan, chosen either
from the student body or the
faculty, should be turned into
the Daily Nebraskan Office.
All letters must be signed but
the name of the persons mak
ing nominations will not be
used in publication.

Tad Szulc, diplomatic corres
pondent of the New York
Times in the Washington,
D. C, Latin-American Bu
reau,, at his Friday press con
ference. The press conference was at
the Nebraska Center before
addressing the University in
Love Library Auditorium.
At the conference, Szulc
answered eight topic ques
tions as follows:
Is Communism in the
minican Republlca at present?
It is not prevalent as far as
visually seeing it in its func
tional operations. The people
are divided by a confused rad
ical left-wing group of eco
nomic elete, political minded
militant, and free-lancing agi
tators. According to Szulc,
there is no clear cut evidence
that communistic subversive
activities are being conduct
ed. Are Communists in govern
ment offices?
Szulc said, "Some groups
feel that many of the gov
ernmental officials are near
the communistic line or close
to it. But Haiti is very primi
tive, with 95 per cent of the
people having no clear con
ceptions of any form of gov
ernment. There are several
active minority labor unions
which are known to be com
munist." Are there anti-American
feelings in Haiti?

There will not be a Union
Board of Managers next year,
according to G. Robert Ross,
dean of the Division of Stu
dent Affairs. There is to be
a group, said Ross, which will
perform almost the same
functions as the present
Board, but it will operate un
der a different name. "I like
to think of it as renaming an
existing organization," stated
Last summer, said Ross, the
Chancellor placed the opera
tion of the Union under the
direction of the division of
Student Affairs. This organi
zational change has now lead
to the proposed abolition of
the Board of Managers.
At present, the Union Board
consists of 12 students, 6 fac
ulty members, and three
alumni, with the students
holding the controlling vote in
all matters of business. Un

tion plan, the Board, or what

The feelings are mixed, ac
cording to Szulc. He felt that
the only anti-American feel
ing was with the radical left
wingers. They have many in
ternal problems concerning
segregation between negroes
and mulattos. The agitators
capitalize on American imper
ialism and our segregational
What are the chances of
Duvalier falling from power?
Szulc did not make a pre
diction, but he said, "Duval

Is the Organization of
American States (OAS) in a
position to act in settling the
dispute between Haiti and the
Dominican Republic?

if that is what the present
board decides it would pre

of next year's group has not
been yet decided, according
to Ross, much of the group's
structure will be decided by
the existing board. "I hope
before the end of this school
year," added Ross.
The Union Board of Man
agers, according to Maureen
Frolik, member, now has
charge of the Union -in the
areas of finance, expenditures,
personnel, and overall policy.
They also decide when and
where prices are raised, and
remodeling is performed. As
Miss Frolik understands, the
proposed change will mean
that the Board will become
nothing but an advisory
crime prevention and reha
bilitation. The Wednesday speakers in
clude: Louis Sharp, Chief of
Probation, U.S. Courts, will
open the conference at 9 a.m.
Richard Robinson, Chief

stopping Foreign Aid to Haiti?
The money that the US
was spending was not being
used for the betterment of the
country, according to Szulc.
Was there a resistance or
ganized to fight Duvalier?
"Yes, there was," exclaimed
Szulc. "It was very well or
ganized at one point, but Du
valier destroyed it about a
week and a half ago." He al
so said that the leader of the
opposition force was just as
much of a tyrant as Duvalier.
One would have been just as
bad as the other.
Could the people of Hlspan
olia handle a democratic sys
tem? Szulc felt that an effort
should be made sometime in
the future, but not now.
Their economic, social, and
cultural position has deterior
ated, rather than progressed
due to the population explo
sion. They are receding and
are at no more than a stand
still at the very best.
Szulc said, "Before a dem
ocratic form of government
could be effective, I feel that
we should base our whole ex
ercise on building twentieth
century thinking. They have
regression in their living stan
dards." He felt they are requiring
effort today needlessly, and
wasting energy of regression
of yesterday. He also said that
democracy would be a prag
matic idea . . . hard to get
across. They are outside of
the context of realms of the
Western Hemisphere and nin
teenth and twentieth century
living. Their progress of re
gression is the reason that a
democratic form of govern-mer-t
would not work.

The relations between the
Union's Board of Managers
and the University Adminis
tration, has, in the past, been
direct. The Union's manager
has consulted with, and ad
vised, the Board on all mat
ters. Although the two have
generally agreed on policy,
the Board has always had the
final say. It has been the
grbup responsible to the Chan
cellor and the Board of Re
gents. Next year this will be
changed, according to Ross.
Next year, the board, and
the Union's manager, will re
port to the Dean of Student
Affairs, who will then be the
person responsible to the
Chancellor and the Regents.
"Some persons have been
concerned that the students
responsibility is taken away
by this move," said Ross,
"but I hope that they will
have more."
