RanhgJIenic Proposes 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 meetings. 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 committees. 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.

Construction Is proceeding on the new Behlen Physics 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 day's DAILY NEBRASKAN 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.

T h Department of The Daily Nebraskan Barton. "If it correlates with the general poll it would tend to validate the results of the general poll as representa tives of the entire student body." 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." Home Economics was ele vated to a School of Home Economics and the title of the College of Agriculture was changed to include Home Economics. The Eppley Institute for research on cancer and al lied diseases was dedicated at the College of Medicine in Omaha. More than $5 million in research and training grants were received by the Uni versity in fiscal 1962-63.

Finniean stated that $89,000 will be withheld by the fed' eral government. This sum is 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."

More than LS million persons attended meetings conducted by University Ex tension specialists and coun ty agents throughout the State. A livestock judging Ml ark 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 added. 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 facility. 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.
