Students' Housing Affected
no Dual
Some University students
may have to change their
places of residence next fall
as the result of action taken
by the Lincoln City Council
The Council redefined "fam
ily" thus limiting the number
of places available to stu
dents. Students may not reside in
what the city defines as sin
gle family units. Single family
units include family homes or
duplex living units which hold
three or more families and in
clude apartment houses. Stu
dents must meet the new
qualifications for a family in
order to live in these units.
The new definition provides
that one or more persons re
lated in blood, marriage or
adoption living together as a
single housekeeping unit con
stitute a family. The family

Vice Chancellor G. Robert

Attorney Ralph Nelson said
that the revision would not be
strictly enforced until next
The Council gave the reason
for the revision as the prob
lem of parking created when
four or more students rented
a house in a residential dis
trict. Nelson said that the
noise, parties and in short,
mode of living of these groups
were incompatable to the fam
ily-type neighborhood.
University officials said
Monday "this type of student
housing is frowned upon," but
expressed fear the revision
might cause future problems
for the University in securing
off-campus quarters for an in
creasing student body.
They also noted a number
of graduate students and fac
ulty members sometimes
share a single-family house.
Councilmen Ed Becker and
John Mason, who voted
against the revision, suggest
ed the problem, as cited in
the R y o n s neighborhood,
should be handled by police as
disturbances of the peace.
Mayor Dean Petersen indi
cated enforcement was diffi
cult, and the zoning revision
would aid considerably.
Nelson advised the Council
that Lincoln's definition was
more liberal than that of
many other cities.
said the definition would be
reconsidered if the University
or other college officials cited
any general problem in hous
ing because of it.

Will Not Have
Constitutional Convention
Suggested By Judiciary
By Frank Partsch
Senior Staff Writer
The extensive alterations in
the Student Council constitu
tion submitted for the sprinir
election have been unanimous
ly overruled by the Council's
judiciary committee.
The committee based its ac
tion on two points, according
to Dick Weill, chairman of
the committee. Weill listed
the points as obscurity in the
definition of the p r o p o s e d
changes and nonconformity
with the rules in making a
constitutional revision.
Weill suggested that a con
stitutional convention be held
in the fall to prepare a con
stitution for consideration on
a special ballot in December.
"I feel that the committee
made the right decision," said
Dennis Christie, president of
the Council. "A constitutional
convention will include all in
terested student groups and
work toward a consitution
that is good for the whole University."
Mike Barton, public rela-
t i o n s chairman, told the
day that John Klein, who pre
sented the new constitution,
had appealed Weill's decision
and that a meeting to rule on
the appeal will be held Fri
day with the Faculty Commit
tee on Activities.
Klein submitted his .con
stitution to Christie shortly be
fore spring vacation. It called
for the abolishment of college
and organizational represen
tatives; living unit represen
tation based on population dis
tricts; separate legislative,

Greater enrollment in state
colleges and more high school
dropouts will bring about a
need for more state educa
tional expenditures, accord
ing to Lt. Gov. Dwight Bur
ney, who spoke to 11 persons
at the University Youth for
Goldwater meeting last night.
Burney, a candidate for the
Republican gubernator
ial nomination, presented his
position on a variety, of na
tional and state political is
sues including government
fiscal policy, presidential can
didates, the state tax situa
tion and the Administration's
war against poverty.
Burney predicted an in
crease of 1000 students at the
University next year and the
need for expansion or addi
tion to the State Trade School
at Milford as indications of
the fact that "we cannot cut
state or local budgets."
The former legislator and
governor maintains that a
sales tax would relieve the
farmers, "who are now taxed
until they are in trouble" and
at the same time pay for the
cost of maintaining state gov
ernment and expanding edu
cation. The Republicans should es
tablish substantial gains this
November in both the House
and the Senate, Burney
said, but he declined to pre
dict the outcome of the presi
dential election unless Sen.
Barry Goldwater is nominat
ed. Burney advocated a parti
san legislature. He indicated
that the inequality in the
strength of the lobbyists and

times after it originally died.
"Party leaders could combat
the strength of the lobbyists,"
he said, adding that a bipar
tisan legislature would also
strengthen the power of the
state parties.

branches; and voting based on

al representation.
Rather than amending or
revising present forms of stu
dent government, the pro
posed changes started a new
constitution and an entirely
new concept of government.
In elaborating the two
points used in overruling the
new constitution, Weill's
statement called attention to
the definition of a constitu
tional amendment. Article
Ten of the present constitution
gives students the right to pe
tition the Council for "revi
sion or amendment."
"This proposal does not fall
within the realm of these two
words," the statement said.
"It certainly cannot be con
s t r u e d as an amendment
Since this constitution elimi
nated the present Student
Council as it now exists and
substitutes a whole new form
of student government, it can
not be considered a revision
to the existing constitution."
The committee also noted
that K 1 e i n' s constitution
amended the former constitu
tion "dated 1960." The 1960
form was amended in the
spring election of 1963, mak
ing the new constitution "not
in conformity with the re
quirements set out in the pres- .
ent constitution."
"Such a procedural defect
cannot be overlooked by this
committee." ,
The recommendation for a
constitutional convention in
cluded recognition of the 500
students who had signed the
petition for the new constitu
tion. "Since these students as
well as many Council mem
bers see faults in the present
Student Council constitution,
the committee recommends
the calling of a constitutional
convention," the statement
The statement added that
any changes accepted and
passed in December would go
into effect in May of 1965, the
same time as any changes
passed in this spring's elec
tion. Klein told the DAILY NE
BRASKAN last night that he
considered Weill's allusion to
a constitutional convention
"an afterthought to pacify the
backers of the new constitu
tion." He indicated that he
believed that a great deal of
confusion would result from
such a convention, with little
effective result.
He expressed confidence
that the decision of the judic
iary committee would be re
versed, but declined to state
the grounds upon which his
appeal was based.
In answer to a charge that
his proposed student govern
ment would be impractical
because of the cost of holding
several yearly referendums,
he said that there is no way
of determining cost until the
plan was put into practice.

To insure the future of the
fraternity system, fraterni
ties must work closer togeth-
with college administrat
ors, create a need tor frater
nities among students, and
improve their public image,
said Dr. William Hauser.
Hauser, graduate secretary
and educational director of
Phi Gamma Delta -spoke last
night at a convocation in
the Student Union, concluding
Greek Week activities.
Dr. Hauser described a fra
ternity as an organization con
cerned with the social, edu
cation and spiritual welfare
of its members. "A fraternity
does not look upon its mem
bers as free social beings,"
he said. Members agreed to
social norms of personal con
duct and deportment, in an
environment of established
tradition which they are ex
pected to follow.
"Fraternities must create
want by excelling in the per
sonnel they bring in, by de
manding better scholarship,
by being "truly fraternal,"
and by returning to the "prin
ciples of friendship, self-sacrifice
and ritual." "It is not
old-fashioned to subscribe to
admirable principles," he em
phasized. "The ceaseless and sense
less competition between
houses must be eliminated to
prevent the erosion of friend
ship and brotherhood," Dr.
Hauer stressed.
At the Interfratcrnity-Pan-
hellenic Recognition Dinner
before the convocation ad
dress, John Zeilinger, Kappa
Sigma past president, was an
nounced as the recipient of
the John Abrahamson mem
orial award. The award was
presented by Dr. C. B. Sch
ults to "an outstanding citi
zen of the University campus"
who most emulates the Ideals
and leadership of Abraham
son. Abrahamson, a member
of Beta Theta Pi fraternity,
died two years ago.
Jean Probasco, Panhellenic
president, announced the top
two sorority scholars in each
class. They are freshmen,
Kay Kersenbrock, Alpha Phi,
8.267 and Judy Young, Alpha
Chi Omega, 8.133.
Sophomores are Chris Per
rin, Kappa Alpha Theta, 8.358
and Vicki Dowling, Gamma
Phi Beta, 8.255. Juniors are
Joann Strateman, Kappa Al
pha Theta, 8.669 and Susan
Unthank, Alpha Phi, 8.506.
Seniors are Linda Larson, Chi
Omega, 8.649 and Maureen
Frolik, Kappa Alpha Theta,
Gary Radii, Sigma Chi, was
announced as the top Greek
senior scholar, and Tom Ko
touc, Phi Kappa Psi, and
Norm Rosenberg, Sigma Al
pha Mu completed the list of
the top male scholars.
Skip Soiref, Sigma Alpha
Mu, received the IFC scholar
ship. The scholarship is pre
sented to an outstanding
sophomore based on activities
and scholarship.
