An attempt by over 500 stu

met its final defeat Friday at
the hands of the faculty com

The faculty committee up

the Student Council judiciary
committee which declared
the new constitution invalid
because a complete substitu

the provisions for "revision"
and "amendment" in the
present constitution, as well
as numbering inconsist

faculty committee.
The committee acted on a
motion to approve the
judiciary committee's state

recommendation that a con

statements from the propon

by Bud Kimball, and from
the judiciary committee, de
livered by Chairman Dick
Kimball challenged the
judiciary committee's right
to refer to numbering errors
in keeping the constitution
from the ballot. He called at
tention to a similar case in
the Nebraska constitution in
1958, when an inconsistently
numbered amendment was
passed and later corrected
because "the original intent
of the petitioners was dear."
Weill answered that the er
ror in itself was not import
ant, although "it should not
have been made by a know
Iedgable group." The main
objection of the committee,
WeiU said, was the fact that a
new constitution cannot be
"superimposed" over an

Weill quoted a 1946 Georgia
decision which denied a
group of petitioners the right
to submit a new constitution
without the consent of a
greater number of people in
drawing up the document. He
said that a constitution of
this type could be controlled

one of our best loved staff
members," said Dr. E. F.
Frolik, dean of the college of
Agriculture and Home Eco

contributions to animal health
have stirred world-wide inter

Young was born in Syra-

change, and, on that basis,
the judiciary committee
could not rule out a new con
stitution because it was not a
revision. The proposed con

preamble and two articles of
the present constitution.
He quoted BLACK'S LAW

Reference Book
A University staff member
was one of 56 recognized lead
ers in the field of swine di
seases who have contributed
writings to an 894-page book
which has been described as
a complete and up-to-date ref
erence on swine.
Dr. George Young, chair
man of the Department of
Veterinary Science, who died
Friday, was a co-author of the
new second edition of "Di
seases of Swine," published
this month by the Iowa State
University Press. The book,
which discusses in detail the
latest findings and methods
of swine disease identificaton,
prevention and cures, is edi
ted by Dr. Howard Dunne,
who is in charge of veterin
ary research at Pennsylvania
State University.
Chapters have been grouped
into eight sections: anatomy
and physiology, viral diseases
bacterial and mycotic infec
tions, parasitic infections, tox
emias and poisonings, mis
cellaneous diseases, surgery,
and nutrition, feeds and man
agement. Areas in which there has
been considerable expansion
or revision of previous ma
terial include those on toxic
plants, rodenticides and herb
icides, helminthology, foot-
and-mouth disease and swine
erysipelas. Added features of
a revised chapter on hog chol
era are four full pages of color
illustrations that will aid grat
ly in the difficult diagnosis of
the disease.
Young's writings are re
lated to virus pneumonia of
pigs and the use of SPF pigs
in swine repopulation.

that the new constitution
could be construed to apply
under both definitions.
Weill countered that
"amendment" is a legislative
action and "revision" im
plies a constitutional conven

were questioned by the com
mittee, Maureen Frolik

To Talk
Position Of Law
To Be Clarified
State Senator Marvin Stro
mer, author of Nebraska's
new and more stringent liquet
laws, will speak to Universi
ty students this afternoon at
3:30 in the Union conference
Stromer will attempt to
clarify his and the legisla
ture's position behind the
new law, according to Tom
Kort, Student Council public
issues chairman.
"Those who want to can
gain exposure to all aspects
of student drinking as well
other student-oriented prob
lems," Kort said.
Kort expressed disappoint
ment with student attendance
at the Student Council-sponsored
series on drinking. He
said this would be the last
such program. He noted
that Stromer has shown in
terest in a variety of University-legislature
areas and that
discussion after the senator's
talk could range to other sub
"Perhaps the drinking sub
ject received more attention
than it was worth it is
really just one of many topics
involving the University and
the state legislature," Kort
There was adequate pub
licity for the last forum when
Dean J. Winston Martin and
Dr. William Hall spoke, but
the student attendance of
"thirty or forty" was disap
pointing, according to Kort.
Apparently students feel that
nothing can be done, and con
sequently they think "why
attempt a solution," Kort
Student attendance at the
last forum did not, said Kort,
bear out the results of the
Student Council's drinking
poll where about half of the
students polled replied that a
change in the state's liquor
laws was needed.
