Student Senators passed resolutions, the ASUN budget,
and several amendments without a dissenting vote at
Wednesday's meeting.
Though every measure passed unanimously, there was
some discussion. There were a few high spots.
For the resolution involving the student football ticket
mix-up, we say congratulations. Something in the way of
concrete suggestions for improvement of ticket handling
will now be passed through the proper channels we trust.
We certainly endorse the proposal that football tickets
not be issued to band members, athletes and others who
have free passes for the games. Access to extra tickets
is a privilege they have retained for too long a time.
That the East stadium be reserved only for students
and faculty also meets our approval and commendation.
It is unfortunate that Senator Bob Samuelson was not
able to disclose some of his discussion with Ticket Man
ager James Pittenger and other officials. But, we believe
in compromise to a degree. Sometimes it is the only way
The amendment to the ticket resolution, approved by
the Student Senate, stipulating that students be able to
purchase a ticket "sometime in August" apears to be
a way of insuring pre-registered students a stadium seat.
We hope that it is.
We also hope the resolution finds its way to the source
of the continuing ticket problem, that the suggestions off
ered by the Student Senate be read and considered not
It is the analysis and aproval of the Student Senate's
proposals or modifications of the roposals which will de

the University student is essential, for in their power lies

The Campus Opinion column provides you, the reader,
an oportunity to sound off either in a pleasant or dis

Something seems to be wrong. Perhaps nothing has
happened yet this fall to make your heart beat a little
faster or your temper flare.
Maybe nothing has even aroused your interest or made
a noticeable impression on your brain. We deny all those

mention before the student
FESTER (Functional
Evaluation of Students Try
ing to Enter Robe) is
nothing more than a series
of percentages rating the
depth, sincerity and com
petence of so-called student
leaders. The results are
ironic in some cases we
find that some students lack
all three virtues.
To me, this is inconsis
tent with the term leader
ship. It's moreover incon
sistent with the term fol
lowership, which is just as
important. Someday soon I
hope to be able to put some
concrete dressing on this
abstract feeling.
But, to get into specifics,
let us take for example the
predecessor of our student
body government, the old
Student Council. FESTER
ratings are as follows:
depth, 30 per cent; sincer
ity, five per cent; compe
tence 17 per cent.
And yet I fully agreed
with last year's President
John Lydick that it was
the most capable Student
Council in recent times.
This is one reason for a
new type of student gov
ernment here. It also ex
plains the concern still
felt by many students and
administrators that all is
not as it should be.
Before delving more
deeply into the supreme as
pects of student govern
ment, I probably should
hastily and parenthetically
add that the ratings for
IFC, dorm governments,
and most campus groups

were similar to the Student
Council rating.
(National PanHellen
ic regulations prohibit the
release of such information
about PanHel officers, but
FESTER rated the perform
ance of those responsible
for making and upholding
this rule as an even three
per cent in all three cate
gories.) Now the question probab
ly arises: "How, out of 15.
000 students can we fail to
find representatives that
are able to score a higher
rating on the FESTER
Several qualifications
should be pointed out at
this point:
Perhaps those who
compile the information ex
pect too much quality, sin
cerity and depth. I think
Perhaps too many per
sonal interests are taking
precedence over too many
University interests. I think
Perhaps there is too
much political and social
patronage. Just look at the
death of the senator's pro
gram, the dying of the
master's program, the mon
strous losses suffered by
the Greek system in recent
years. These are the fruits
of patronage.
But finally and most
important, perhaps the rea
sons for many students' en
tering "positions of lead
ship" are totally and im
morally debased. Thoughts
of glory as implied in the
very name of FESTER
are the prime motiva
tions behind many of our
"student leaders."
One FESTER rating
stood out. The Constitu
tional Convention that is
responsible for our new
Now Available From Student Salesman. Or at the Nebr. Union Booth Sept. 27-Oct. 1
government rated: depth 65
per cent; sincerity 80 per
cent; competence 45 p e r
Delegates to the conven
tion were chosen, however,
by college deans.
Our new student body
government is fortunate to
have among its member
ship some of the real lead
ers who served on the con
vention. It is also plagued
with some of those respon
sible for the miserable rat
ings received by other or
ganizations last year.
By way of prediction, I
would think that Kent Neu
meister could call his year
a success if he can get his
body up to these ratings:
depth 35 per cent; sincer
ity 100 per cent.
According to "rumors," the
new North stadium was felt
to sway by several spectators.
Perhaps the structure was
weakened by big Freeman
White's leap into it after
catching his touch down pass.
It would be a spectacular
finale to the next game to
have the structure fall, and
we object to the contractor's
investigating it.
The fire alarm system at
Abel hall does not work. This
is probably comforting to the
residents, in that they do not
have to worry about being
awakened at night by a fire
alarm. The system soon will
be repaired, though, and we
wish them luck till then in
case of a fire.

The season, this year,
was better than ever be
fore, so instead of merely
redecorating the forty-nine
rooms on the first floor as
they had originally planned,
the campus magnates de
cided to have the whole
palace redone.
TI.e three-quarter acre
marble patio in the back
yard would simply have to
go, for that was the only
logical location for the
ninety-foot, jade -lined,
swimming pool strictly for
the use of college students.
The pool was to be exactly
twenty feet deep and would
fulfill a special dream in
the heart of its owner who
has seen many a student go
into deep water.
Something also would
simply have to be done with
the crushed mother of pearl
driveway. Those gems sim
ply didn't hold up the way
the salesman said they
would. Whenever a breeze
came up, pearl dust was
everywhere. The salesman
hadn't really misled them
though. He said the crushed
pearl would stand up to the
weight of a Rolls Royce or
two and it had. But all those
armored trucks going back
and forth from the house
had proved to be just too
The fifteenth century tap
estry carpet in the recep

to be replaced. All those
college students who en

ruined the color scheme.
The red was beginning to
blur the white and it looked
pretty bad.

As I stood in line one day
last week with a "selection
of textbooks in one hand
and a forty-eight dollar
check in the other, to pay
for my expensive tastes
(like going to school), I
could not help but envy the
business the store was en
joying and the money it
must make.
Let's see now, 14,000 stu
dents at about 35 or 40 dol
lars apiece . . . Why with
that kind of business, the
store wouldn't even have to
be greedy to make a mint.
There wouldn't be any rea
son to charge prices like
ten and twelve dollars for a
single book.
There wouldn't be any
reason to say that a text
book won't be used on this
campus anymore and there
fore it's only worth a dime
or a quarter, when the
bookstore buys it back, only
to ship it else where, and
have the whole cycle start
again. There would be no
reason to claim a three or
four dollar depreciation on
a book that was hardly
