Mike Barton announced at
yesterday's Council meeting
that the University's athletic
department is not in favor at
this time of "Husky Herf" as
a school spirit symbol.
He said that the athletic de
partment already has a small
caricature of a Nebraskan in
a red jacket and a big red
hat which it is using as a
symbol on stationery and cal
endars. barton pointed out that
some students might have
trouble identifying with the
little man as a spirit symbol,
but he also said that creating
a new symbol at this time
will cause the University a
large amount of expense.
It was suggested that some
how the caricature and the
bull might be combined so as
to appeal to both students and
Nebraska as yet has no of
ficial spirit symbol one way
or the other.
Jane Ross, Terry Schaaf and
Cuz Guenzel were appointed
members of Pub Board at the
Pub Board, which is a sub
committee of the Faculty Sen
ate, oversees both the Daily
Nebraskan and the CornhuS'
It was explained to Student
Council before the three
members were selected that
Pub Board's overseeing poli
cy has so far been to have
no policy at all. Or in other
words to give the publi
cation editors freedom to do
as they like.
If one of the editors does
get out of line or if the pub
hcations can't solve their
own problems, then it is Pub
Board's responsibility to cor
rect the situation.
Schaaf explained in his in
terview with the Council that
rather than dictate any pol
icy to the editors, the edi
tors should be removed if they
don't show responsibility and
fairness in their own decisions.
Schaaf also stressed the
fact that a good editor should
have the Derogative to choose
his own editorial policy. For
example, to support the candi
dates he feels will be best for
student government offices.
Pub Board s main job is to
select the staffs for both Corn
husker and the Daily Nebras
kan. The Student Tribunal mem
bers were also announced and
approved at the meeting. The
senior members are Karen
Johnson, Vicki Dowling, Jim
Korshoj and Bob Tate. Jun
iors selected are Max Martin
and Dick Newton.
Kent Neumeister reported
that Service Day will be May
22. He said that this year only
service and religious organi
zations will take part in the
day, but that next year it
should be expanded more.
Larry Frolik pointed out
that the Publications Commit
tee next year should investi
gate the amount of censorship
that is given to campus speak
ers. Mike Jeffrey said that the
Public Relations Committee of
the new government next year
should try to interest more
Lincoln people.
Bill Poppert explained that
the new government should
consider motorcycle regula
tions on campus the same as
He also mentioned that ad
ministration is considering
making the parking lot in
fiont of Selleck a faculty lot.
Neumeister said that a Mor
ale survey had been com
pleted on the University Cam
pus before Easter.
The results, he explained,
are still being worked on, but
they appear to be unusual in
many ways. For instance, he
said, some students showed
great interest in the area of
culture and others none at all.
He said that this seems to
show that students recognize
problems on campus, but are
confused about which way
they should go to correct these
Masters Chairman Bill
Couf al said that Masters Week
had been extremely success
ful. He pointed out that the
Masters were greatly impress
ed by the students' interest in
the tuition raise issue.
It was also suggested at the
meeting that next year the
Senators Committee, the Mas
ters Committee and the Peace
Corps Committee should be
conducted on the executive!
level of the government.
Union To Present Tape
Of 'Playboy' Discussion
Hugh Hefner, man of Playboy, Bunnies, and three
page foldout fame, will be heard in the Nebraska Union to
day. The Union Talks and Topics Committee will present
a tape on "The Sexual Revolution in America" in the Ne
braska Union Auditorium, at 3:30.
The tape is part of a series made by station WOTS
of New York. There are four in number, and each is an
hour long. The first tape was played a week ago.
The discussions are between Hugh Hefner, editor and
publisher of Playboy; Father Norman O'Connor, Roman
Catholic priest and director of Radio and TV Communi
cations for the Paulist Fathers in New York City; Rever
end Richard Gary, Episcopal minister, graduate of
Yale Divinity School and member of the Deartment of
Christian Social Relations of the Episcopal Diocese of New
York; and Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, Director of the
American Jewish Committee's Interreligious Affairs De
partment. The program is "Trialogue" and Murray Bur
nett is the moderator. "Trialogue" is a regular program
which discusses and debates various subjects of signifi
cance and interest of society.
Hefner also printed an edited transcript of the four
programs in Playboy. In the introduction to the first tran
script he says, "in any serious analysis of the sexual ills
of society it is necessary to consider the historical link
between sex and religion.
"Dr. Kinsey has observed, There is nothing in the
English-American social structure which has had more In
fluence upon present day patterns of sexual behavior than
the religious backgrounds of that culture. "
Hefner goes on to say that he is not criticizing or
ganized religion per se, but "the antisexual element with
in it"
In the tape last week many topics were considered.
Is the new freedom in sexual relations related to the new
affluent society with its new found leisure time or is man
beginning to reassert bis masculinity in a woman matri
archy dominated culture?
A consideration of sex as sin was pursued towards the
end of the tape and will be continued in the next tape.
After the tape last week there ensued a lively dis
cussion with some taking the viewpoint that sex can be
condoned only within the institution of marriage and oth
ers taking a more liberal viewpoint.
Many aspects of the so called "new sexual freedom"
were discussed by students afterward. There was dis
agreement as to whether the actual incidence of pre
marital relationships is higher than it was in the past, but
there was general agreement that sex is being at least
discussed more than it ever has been.
Reverend Charles Stephen, of the Unitarian Church,
served as moderator of the discussion and some questions
were put to him of a religious nature.
He answered that his church professes no doctrine,
but is based on the belief that the individual should make
up his own mind.
He said that be was not the person to ask what re
ligion has to say about sex, because his church makes no
pronouncements. Instead he led the others to express
what their own religion had to say.
Some 6poke about 'original sin' and others wondered
how that little piece of paper from the church could "make
everything alright now?"
Judy Shanahan, member of the Union Talks and Top
ics Committee, said, "We had a real interesting discussion
last time, and I hope that more people plan to attend the
next three programs.
"I feel that the first tape was more of an introductory
nature, and the next three should get really interesting.
The discussions afterward promise to shed some light on
the students own feelings in this matter."
Tapes on "The Sexual Revolution in America" can be
beard on the next three consecutive Thursdays, (today,
May 13, and May 20) in the Nebraska Union Auditorium,
3 30 to 5 p.m. Each tape lasts one hour with a discussion
session afterwards.
Ciardi Speaks Of College Educations,
Necessity For 'Frivolity, Projection'
When people say there are 12 aims to
education, they seem to be speaking fa
terms of 12 "cubic certainties," accord
ing to John Ciardi, poetry editor for the
Saturdday Review.
Actually these are more like cubiculei
filled with "shredded footnotes," he add
ed. Speaking in the Union ballroom yes
terday, Ciardi said that he had to take a
frivolous approach to the question of
"What Good Is A College?"
"You can't get at the humanities with
out frivolity," he said.
Speaking of the liberal arts college
and his experience as a student, Ciardi
said "I began taking English courses and
I kept taking them till I was unemploy
able. So I had to go out and teach it."
In a more serious vein, if such could
be said of Ciardi's "frivolous" talk, he
listed three primary purposes for the col
lege. The first thing college teaches the
student is to ask a question with greater
complexity. Ciardi said that if a scale of '
complexity could be utilized, ranging from
0 to 100, by the end of the semester the
student would probably be asking ques
tions at the level of 82, but answering
and accepting answers at 58.
This, he said, is an example of "in
tellectual backsliding." The student tends
to settle for a simpler answer than his
question called for. He must learn to
"risk the complexity of it," Ciardi said.
The second major purpose of college
is to "give yon the full resonance of what
the human mind sounds like."
Illustrating his point, Ciardi said he
had always thought of Caruso as one of
the greatest voices of this century. He
had "perfection of voice and song." How
ever, when Mario Lanza came along, he
had "power but no control."
Ciardi said that when he listened to
Lanza sing, he always thought "A bull
cannot sing like a man." He applied this
to Washington too.
How does one tell the difference?
"You have to have heard the man sing,"
according to Ciardi.
He said that the main characteristic of
the immature mind is the fact that it
"has a sledgehammer touch."
Expanding his second point, Ciardi
said that the student should seek tonality.
He should take some courses just be
cause of the fact that the professor has
a special intellect which the student wants
to share.
"Backing into" his third point, as Ci
ardi put it, he said that the liberal arts
"deal with an exact body of knowledge
rwhich is otherwise unknowable." You
"have to meander toward an idea," he
said, and not try to get there in five easy
Referring to the quality of sympathy,
which is necessary for the third point,
Ciardi told of the old "cliff-hanging" mov
ies which used to be shown Saturday af
ternoons to the neighborhood kids.
"There was always the blonde in the
slightly torn dress who managed to es
cape some danger and get into an old
She bumped into a skeleton, jumped
back startled against the wall, and at this
point a "big hairy arm" began reaching
out to grab her.
All the youngsters at the movie would
shout "Look out!" Ciardi said. "But no
one ever shouted 'Get her, big hairy
This is an example of sympathy, he
said. The crowd always sympathized with
the girl. However, had they taken the
other point of view, they would have
cheered for the "big hairy arm."
They could have taken the point of
view of the "big hairy arm," thinking that
this could be "some poor orphan big
hairy arm who was stranded in the castle.
He looked out through the cracks in the
wall often and saw the blonde with the
slightly torn dress and wanted her."
''So when she finally came within his
grasp, it would be exasperating for ev
eryone to always shout 'look out!' "
"This is the third objective of the lib
eral education," Ciardi said. It teaches
the student to develop the ability to pro
ject himself beyond himself.
JVy, Daisy Chains Named;

Kent Newmeister yesterday
became the first president of
the Student Body, smashing
his opponent, Bill Poppert, by
a two to one majority in a
record election.
Newmeister collected 2,350

Heming helped with his cam
paign. "I am looking forward to

tlemenly campaign. "Bill is
