New Plan
Officers' Councils
To Meet Bimonthly
Panhellenic Council recom
mended a form of reorganiza
tion in its Monday meeting,
The plan was taken to soror
ity houses Monday night and
the votes will be reported
back to the Council at the
next meeting.
The plan calls for the addi
tion of officers' councils to
meet twice a month. There
would be six new councils,
one each for the presidents,
standards chairmen, pledge
trainers, scholarship chair
men, rush chairmen and for
the activities and social chair'
men. The activities and social
chairmen would alternate
The purpose of these coun
cjls would be to discuss mu
tual problems and to make
recommendations to the Pan'
hellenic Council.
The plan is intended to make
the Panhellenic more of a uni
fyine group, according to
Susie Walburn, president.
The Panhellenic Council
will remain unchanged. Chair
men of the officers' council
would be Panhellenic dele
gates appointed according to
interest and experience. Dele'
gates not serving as chair
men of councils would com'
prise the regular Panhellenic
An alternate plan would pro'
vide 'for the chairmen of the
council elected from the coun
cils with Panhellenic dele
gates serving as advisors.
It was pointed out that if
the councils did not feel that
meetings needed to be held
that frequently, they could set
up meetings as often as they
felt was necessary.
The plan would go into ef
fect with the new officers.

Growth and accomplish
ments of the University
came into sharp focus dur
ing 1963, but there were
sobering implications for
wie immediate future of
higher education in the
state. Most spectacular was the
all-time record enrollment
of 11,450 students for the
fall semester o v e r 1,000
more than a year ago and
over 2,000 more than in the
fall of 1961. At this rate, the
University's enroll
ment could approach the 20,
000 mark in the early 70's.
Along with enrollment, the

Council Poll To Determine
Campus Drinking Situation
The Student Council public
opinion poll booth will be open
all day today in the Student
Union for anyone who wishes
to fill out a questionnaire for
the Student Council's drink
ing survey, according to Mike
Barton, public relations chair
man for Student Council.
Barton said that about 1300
of the forms, which include
questions on students' drink
ing habits and opinions, have
been distributed to all living
units on campus. Anyone not
receiving one of these polls
may clip the form from to
and turn it in to either the
booth in the Union or the Stu
dent Council office.
No report on the content of
the forms will be made at
this weeks meeting, said Bar
ton, due to the time required
to process and evaluate the
information therein. He added
that he has read some of the
opinions already returned and
most were "forthright and se
rious, or at least candid."
Following the general poll
the Council will conduct a
random sample consisting of
100 of the forms mailed to
representatives of various liv
ing units distributed accord
ing to what percentage the
unit makes up of the total
sudent body.
'The random sample will
be a validity check," said
building, an agricultural li
brary and bids were let for
another student dormitory.

Barton explained that ap
proximately one half of the
forms in the random sample
will go to unaffiliated Lincoln
students, who make up about
half of the student body.
In explaining the roll of the
Council in the drinking prob
lem, Barton said, "This sur
vey is not intended to be a
conclusive, definitive study of
college drinking habits,
worthy of publcation in a so
ciological journal.
Junior Panhell
Sock Collection
Termed Success
The Junior Panhellenic
Council collected 620 pairs of
socks just before Christmas
to give to the Lincoln Com
munity Emergency Fund, ac
cording to Sally Morrow, pub
licity chairman.
The Fund is for underpriv
ileged families.
"We felt that the drive was
very successful," Miss Mor
row said. "I think it would
have been even better how
ever if it had occurred at a
time other than Christmas."

Because of lack of federal
funds, the University's re
search projects in the Ag Re'
search Program will be dis
continued, according to Pearle
Finniflan, state director of Ag

will be withheld by the fed'

the death blow that is being
dealt to the research projects,
he added.
Editors Alter
Award Policy
The Daily Nebraskan will
not present its outstanding
Nebraskan Awards this se
mester, according to editor
Gary Lacey.
In the past, outstanding stu
dents, teachers and adminis
trators were chosen from
nominations at the end of each
semester to be honored at an
awards luncheon.
"A vote of the editors of this
semester's Daily Nebras
kan revealed that they feel
that the award should be
given on a yearly basis in
stead of being given every
semester; the winners will
now be announced in the
spring," said Lacey.
"Our study Is more partiu
lar,more specific. We are at
tempting to summarize the
opinions of Nebraska students
relating to the drinking sta
tutes and the roll of the Stu
dent Council in evaluating
these statutes.
"A n d finally, we are espe
cially interested in collecting
student suggestions concern
ing the solution of the drink
ing problem. As far as I am
concerned, the problem is the
gap between the law and the
reality of the situation.
"The problem is not neces
sarily students drinking or
senators legislating; it is the
dissonance between these two
factions and that is what we
hope to alleviate."

Flnnigan said, "We have
given the University a six
month notice in advance to
July 1, 1964. This is to prevent
the University from starting
any new research projects
and then having to discontinue
them in the middle."
Financial aid will continue
until that date, Finnigan
He said that he first re
ceived notice of the cancel
lation of federal funds in a
letter from Orville Freeman,
Secretary of Agriculture. The
letter was dated Dec. 1.
Dr. Herbert Kramer, direc
tor of University experimental
stations, said "This means we
must close the projects out
completely. We have no other
alternative. We shall attempt
to publish what information
is available at this stage of
research, and will place our
plants in cold storage with
hopes that financial support
can be secured before we lose
the seed."
Kramer yesterday refused
to comment further on the sit
uation or to divulge any
names of those researchers
NU Seeks Property
For Music Building
The University has asked the City of Lincoln to vacate
a half block of Uth street south of the campus between R
and the alley north of Q street; for construction of a Uni
versity music building.
University Business Manager Carl Donaldson said the
request is made contingent upon the University's acquisi
tion of three lots facing 11th street west of the present
music building.
The 1963 Legislature appropriated $1.5 million toward
the construction and equipment of a new University music
If the city will permit 11th street to be closed as re
quested. Donaldson said the University would pursue ne
gotiations for purchase of property on the west side of 11th
and develop plans to place the new building in that area
and the present music building site.
The University now owns about a half block on the east
side of 11th where the present music building, constructed
in 1896, is now located. This area, however, is considered
too limited for a new structure, Donaldson said.
Donaldson said he made the University request for
vacation of 11th street in a letter to Mayor Dean H, Peter
sen under date of December 31.
