braskans are setting their
sights on Columbia, Mo.
The student enthusiasm is
very strong following a great
Homecoming victory. The Uni
versity ticket office has re
ported that thirty-three hun
dred tickets have been sold
for student and alumni use.
This is a larger number of
tickets sold than for most
other out-of-town gamns, ac
cording to James Pittenger,
athletic ticket manager.
In the past years more
students have gone to the mi
grations at Colorado than to
Missouri. Last year over one
thousand students left the
confines of the Lincoln cam
pus to travel to Boulder.
Two years ago the Universi
ty ticket office sold only 1,000
tickets for the NU-MU tilt at
Columbia. But with the Miami
fever running throughout the
campus, many students want
to see Nebraska battle the
first of the "Big Three" on
their schedule.

Policy Set
Last Year
Wednesday's Student Coun
cil motion encouraging stu
dents to attend the Nebraska-
Missouri game but not ap
proving an "official migra
tion" was based on existing
policy concerning migration
which was determined last
fall by G. Robert Ross, Dean
of Student Affairs, and the
Student Council migration
The purpose of the commit
tee was to find some mutally
agreeable arrangement with
the Administration on the mi
gration issue.
According to the final re
port submitted by Dennis
Christie, then chairman of
the committee, "Dean Ross
emphasized the Administra
tion's policy regarding the
missing- of classes and the
regulations that would be in
volved if an official migra
tion could be established.
Other schools in the Big
Eight have expressed the be
lief that academic work
should take precedence to
athletic and other extra-curricular
The migration committee,
after some research regard
ing the possibilities of an offi
cial migration; decided to
support past Administration
policy on this issue. The fol
lowing reasons were cited:
"An official migration
would require that tran
sportation and housing be
under the general supervision
of the University. This would
mean that all students at
tending the game would
either be required to travel
by some means under Uni
versity sponsorship or get ap
proval to travel another way.
Secondly, all students would
be required to stay in an offi
cial university housing unit
under the sanction of the
host school."
The University cannot justi
fy an official migration, ac
cording to the committee, as
it would contradict its high
academic standards and
ideals. Since at least 1,000
students attended the football
game at Boulder last fall, it
was felt that students should
decide for themselves wheth
er to attend the game.
The Student Council finally
passed a resolution last year
supporting the policy of an
unofficial migration for the
19G3-64 football season.

Efficient state financing of
various projects is a struggle
to find a happy medium be
tween the wishes of the ideal
ists and those of the realists,
according to Lt. Gov. Dwight
Burney, speaking to the
Young Republicans last
night, included the Universi
ty budget and the state high
way program in this cate
gory. "The Chancellor and the
Board of Regents are ideal
ists," he said. "They have to
be. And the budget commit
tee are the realists. The ideal
ists will probably never get
as much money as they ask
for, . . . but we should take
care of our University."
An announced candidate for
the Republican nomination
for governor next year, Bur
ney, as lieutenant governor,
held the office for four
months after the death of
Gov. Brooks in 1960. He said
that the Republican party,
whose state organization and
policies he defended, has
failed only one area that of
electing a governor. "I want
to cnange that," he added.
Burney was critical of the
state of the nation's finances.
"I am hunting for a banker,"
he said, "who believes one
hundred per cent in the pres
ent fiscal policy of our coun
try. If I find him, I want to
open an account with him
because he will allow me to
draw out more money every
year than I deposit."
"This generation has re
fused to live on its income;
it has borrowed and borrowed
and thrown the debt against
future generations. For these
reasons we are 'facing the
loss of our freedoms; to pre
vent this, we must take an
active interest in govern
ment." In discussing Nebraska's
problems of taxation, Burney
said that, as governor, he sug
gested a 2 per cent sales
tax, which, at that time,
would have supported state
government "with a little to
spare." Since then, he con
tinued, although it would
today take much more than
2 per cent, he still advocates
a sales tax as a means of
making the tax scale fairer
to all the citizens of the state.
An income tax, however,
would be overly burdensome,
because income tax is already
"sewed up" on the federal

Lowenstein said that money
is still needed to post bond
and to pay for campaign ex
penditures. In an interview
with CPS, he said that the
conditions have become ex
tremely bad and that arrests
are almost "commonplace."
- In Atlanta, the office of the
Student Nonviolent Coordi
nating Committee (SNCC) re
ported that there had been
more than 45 arrests of stu
dents and that at least 100
cases of police intimidation
were known to them. Several
of the Yale students were ar
rested more than once on
varying charges, SNCC said.
Steve Bingham, one of the
Yale studenrs arrested in
Clarksdale and editor of
the Yale Daily News, said
that the infringements upon
freedom that are currently
occurring in Mississippi have
been ignored by a large por
tion of the American press.
Echoing Lowenstein, Bing
ham said that the arrests and
intimidation the Yale students
are suffering are drastic even
in an area where intimida
tion is the norm.
Stanford University stu
dents arriving in Mississippi
will be on hand to re

to New Haven after a week
of work. For two Yale stu

They ' are in jail at Clarks
dale where- they are being
held incommunicado by po
lice chief Ben Collings.
Two additional Yale stu
dents were arrested yester
day in Hattiesburg on charges
of assault and battery but
were later released. Frank
Heintz, Yale sophomore, was
jailed three days ago in
Clarksdale on charges of reck
less driving. Heintz had en
gaged in a running feud with
police chief Collins since his
arrival in that city Monday.
Legal action may soon be
taken against Mississippi po
lice guilty of criminal abuses,
sources at Jackson report.
The NAACP legal defense
and education fund is prepar

police brutality. The NAACP
legal effort, spearheaded by
Marion Wright, 1963 Yale law
graduate, is expected to be
