Plans are now being formu
lated for action to be taken
this year by the Student Coun
cil's special committee on dis
crimination. This committee was set up
last spring as the result of
a motion by Council member
Joanne Strateman. She urged
a study on racial discrimina
tion problems faced by Uni
versity students. Her motion
resulted from the refusal of
a downtown Lincoln barber
shop to give service to a Ne
gro student of the University.
The committee was headed
by Council First Vice Presi
dent Dick Weill. However, be
fore thorough studies and
findings could be made by the
committee, a new Council
took office. The committee
was then lost in the year-end

Frolik also plans to talk to

Nebraska Is Busting Out All Over
Another phase of campus development will be compl eted wiinin the next year with the building of the Behlen
Physics Research Laboratory (above left), the new library on Ag Campus (below left) and George P. Abfl Hall, (above)
a men's residence hall.
The construction projects are part of a plan for the development of the University campus, both the uptown
campus and the College of Agriculture facilities. The library building, for which dedication date will be announced soon,
is located on the east edge of the Agriculture Campus in accordance with the University planners' prediction that the
center of the campus will move to the east as the campus is developed.
The laboratory, located west of City Campus, was a gift from the Behlen family of Columbus, and will be used
for graduate and advanced research. The residence hall, named after the la,e George P. Abel, a Lincoln construction
company owner, will house some 1,000 students beginning next fall.

radices Salesmanship
"Rrrrrr . . . . ing!" An
alarm clock in the YWCA
booth at the Upperclassman
Activities Mart rang out in a
tiny but enthusiastic spirit.
"The Time Is Now" Sign
up for YWCA, a going organi
zation." The feter and fervor of the
Activities Mart reached a new
high each time a prospective
signer entered the Conference
Room in the basement of the
Student Union Wednesday.
Sales pitches ranging from
"the best organization on
campus it's through in No
vember" by the AUF booth,
to "would you like to be a
dancer" from Orchesis, rang
out in the smoke-filled con
ference room.
Active members of organi
zations tried their best to con
vince upperclassemen that
this was THE organization to
join this year.
There were many 'lookers'
who came to the Mart just to
see what was going on and
what was offered. There were
also many signers and
signers were at a premium
at the Mart.
Of the 18 booths at t h e
Mart, AUF seemed to have
the liveliest and most enthusi
astic sellers. Excuses from
signers made no difference to
the AUF sellers. "But we al
ready have a representative
in the house." .... "Two in
the house is a lot better than
one!" came the AUF reply.
A Tassles sign read "Pep?
Spirit? Big Red Fan? Then
be a Tassle," In this case
there was just one hitch: Tas

Not just everybody can sign
Politics was not to be
slighted at the Mart. Young
Democrats and Young Repub
licans had their booths set
up, and were actively recruit
ing people for their organi
zations. The Youth for Gold
water and Miller organization
had a booth set up separately
from the YR organization.
"We are at present separate
from the YR organization, and
working in a concentrated na
tional effort " came
the pitch for YG-M.
As the Activities Mart
faded into the late hours of
the afternoon, frustrated up
perclassmen could be heard
telling sellers "I don't have
any time till after October!
I have two meetings to go to
after I leave here!"

YG President Calls
For GOP Conservatism
"The primary concern of
the Youth for Goldwater Club
is to keep the conservative
philosophy going," President
William Herzog said last
night at the club's organiza
tional meeting.
"The Goldwater philosophy
needs to be nurtured we
must keep a spark under it,"
Herzog said. Plans are being
made to form a conservative
club after the election is over.
"We are thinking of joining
the ISI (Intercollegiate Soci
ety of Individualists, Inc.) to
further conservative thought
here at the University after
the election," he said.
"We are not working
against the Young Republi
cans. Bill Harding (YR presi
dent) and I are working to
gether," Herzog said.
The Lancaster County cam
paign coordinator, Monroe
Usher, told the group of a
planned canvas of Lincoln by
Goldwater-Miller workers.
"Campaigning door-to-door
is the only way we'll win this
election. It is the only way
an election is ever won," Ush
er said.
Approximately 1,500 volun
teers are needed to canvas
the Lincoln precincts. "We
would lik" to take flying
squads through the heavy
voting precincts," he said.
"Lincoln is a peculiar city
politically," Usher said,
"though 62 pe rcent of the re
gistered voters are Republi
cans, the Republicans near
ly always get a bad represen
tation of votes."
"To win this election for
Barry Goldwater we must
make these door-to-door con
tacts. We must see that all
the voters are registered, that
they have transportation to
the polls, and absentee ballots
if they need them," Usher
Ed Narjes, the state cam
paign coordinator for Nebras
ka, told the group of nearly
GO people. "We want the fed
eral government to do only

chance for .he United States
to survive," Narjes said, "if
you think that is a wild state

Empire - they thought it
would always survive."
"It was complacency of the

YDs Ratify
Plan Year
The Young Democrats
(YDs) last night adoped a new
The constitution, which now
conforms to the National
Young Democrats' and the
Student Council's models, was
approved by the 90 persons
present at the group's first
meeting of the year.
The meeting was highlight
ed by a tape recording of the
soundtrack of the movie "One
Thousand Days" which was
presented at the Democratic
National Convention.
Karen Nelsen, president,
said that the work that was
being done by the YD's at
the campaign headquarters
was greatly appreciated. Clair
Callan, Democratic candidate
for Congress sent a letter
praising the group. "This is
the first election in this
state where young people
have taken an active part in
campaigning. This role of the
young people is important for
our government to function in
the manner that it does."
Dan Goodman, fund raising
chairman, said medallions are
being sold now at the cam.
paign headquarters. "This
money", Goodman said, "is
to finance our projects
throughout the year."
Projects being planned by
the group are Johnson Girls,
to work at the meetings, and
do party errands. A torch
light parade which will wind
from fhe Student Union to the
Capitol will be held October
29. The New Christy Min
strels are tentatively sched
uled to appear at a YD din
ner when the singers come
to Lincoln.
The new constitution was
necessary because of the dis
crepency between the old
constitution and the Council
model. The new constitution
said "The purposes of t h e
YDC (Young Democratic!
Club) shall be to provide a
University forum for the dis
cussion of Democratic poli
tics, to promote the princi
ples of the state and national
Democratic parties, and to
work for the election of Demo
crats at all levels of government."
