Senate Presented With Plan
For European Student Flight
A plan for a low-cost stu
dent chartered flight to Eur
ope this summer was pre
sented to the Student Senate
Wednesday with the sugges
tion that ASUN act as official
sponsors of the flight.
The motion was tabled at
the meeting, but the sponsor,
Dave Fairbanks, said ASUN
President Kent Neumeister
"indicated that they would
probably deal with it at t h e
next meeting."
said he has
a plan through
worked out
which a University student,
faculty member, staff mem
ber or members of their im
mediate families could travel
round trip to Europe next
summer for approximately
$275 .The normal cost for the
same flight at tourist rates
is $399.
A DC7C four engine propel
ler airliner is being held in
reserve for possible charter
ing by ASUN. The proposed
flight would leave New York
for London on June 11, and
return to New York from Lon
don on August 18. Fairbanks
said- each passenger "would
be responsible for his own
time in Europe."
The plane seats 102 passen
gers. The airline carries $75,
000 insurance on each seat.
Additional insurance could be
obtained at a nominal cost.

fast so that the ship can sail

you can get anything together,
it will help."

hope to have a boxcar full of
goods by Sunday night," he
said. Contributions for the
drive can be taken to the
Star Van and Storage Com
pany at 645 L St., Haerner an
nounced. Omaha businessman John
Everroad also spoke to t h e
group. Everroad discussed the
state and its government com
menting, "I think Nebraska
needs help. I think that they
need a businessman or a num
ber of businessmen in Lin
coln." Everroad, who was an un
successful candidate for lieu
tenant governor in 1964, said
of the upcoming campaigns,
"I really would like to run, I
don't know what for." He said
he thinks the Republican par
ty in Nebraska is split and
that it needs to unify and
win the governorship in 1966.
"The Republican Party, as
far as a businessman is con
cerned is pretty hard to get
on the inside of," he said.
"The Republican Party does
not want me because I might
not say yes."
Everroad, an adopted Ne
braskan, said that the state
has undeveloped potential
and that "it doesn't do a bit
of good to parade around tne
city of Dallas and promote the
city of Omaha."
He said, "There is no rea
son for you to graduate from
the University of Nebraska
and move to Phoenix, Arizona
for a position that should be
provided right here."
"It's way past time when
business men do something to
provide a future for this
state," Overroad expounded.
He said businessmen must

Lincoln Travel Agency.
If all the seats on the flight
were not filled by March 20,
the charter would be can-
celed "without any financial
loss," Fairbanks said.
Fairbanks, a junior, said he
conceived the idea of a char
tered flight because he is
planning a summer European
trip and "was looking around
for a cheap way." He was
assisted in planning by Rev.
Bruce McSpadden associate
director of the campus Wes
ley Foundation.
Fairbanks said he had pre
sented his plan to several stu
dents and had met with en
thusiasm. He said two stu
dents expressed definite de
sire to make the flight.
Fairbanks is o p t i m i s -tic
about ASUN acceptance of
the sponsorship for the plan.
He said he hopes acceptance
will come next week so that
students would be able to be
gin making plans for the trip
over the vacation period.

University parking regu

Capt. Masters said, and re

The University police of

the Lincoln Police Depart

Some of the changes in
troduced in parking regula
tions this year include the
24-hour reservation for fac
ulty only of the east parking
lot In front of Love Memori
al Library.
"Last year the lot, de
signated Area F, would fill
early with non-faculty cars,
and when the night school
teachers would arrive there
were no places left," Capt.
Masters said.

A picture of University ex
pansion and building with all
its problems and complica
tions between now and the
early 1970's was explained by
A. C. Breckenridge, vice
chancellor and dean of facul
ties, Thursday night.
Breckenridge, who was
speaking in the Nebraska Un

Must Be
"Avenues must be found for
making student concerns
known and for establishing
some procedure whereby these
concerns will be considered."
This is one of the most im
portant problems facing the
University at this time accord
ing to Dr. William Pharis,
ASUN faculty adviser, who
will represent the Universi
ty's student government at
Faculty Senate Tuesday.
Pharis noted that for the
first time "since I've been
here we have a responsible
student agency" and he
pointed out that this group
(ASUN) must be heard and
respected by the faculty, the
administration and whoever
else makes University policy.
Students Have Rights
"Someone must eventually
realize that students have
some rights around here," he
Tuesday Pilaris will be pre
senting the students' sugges
tion for a "non-test, non-attendance
check day" Jan. 3
to the Faculty Senate. Student
Senate, as representative of
all the students in the Uni
versity, has continuously
pointed out that it feels this
proposal is important because
it will keep students from
rushing home in a day's time
from the Orange Bowl game
in Miami in order to make it
back to scchool.
Dr. Pharis explained
Wednesday at Student Senate
that this proposal can only be
made as a recommendation to
Faculty Senate because the
faculty can't rule on issues un
less they are on the agenda
two weeks in advance or
brought up at a preceding
Thursday afternoon Pharis
noted that although Faculty
Senate cant make any
definite ruling on the students
'motion, it can recommend
University parking facili
ties, excepting Area F.
Regulations covering red
lined curbs, service drives
and other areas are en
forced 24 hours a day, Capt.
Masters said. The meter
lots are patrolled from 7
a.m. to 5 p.m.
Another new rule this
year is a $5 fine for parking
on University property with
out a permit.
"Last year there was a
certain number of cars
parking without permits,"
Capt. Masters said. "They
thought they could park on
campus for less than the
cost of a permit because
the fine was only $1. Also,
when the car wasn't regis
tered in a student's name or
was registered in another
state, we had to track down
the driver of the car."
Students who receive a
$5 ticket may buy a $5 park
ing permit in place of pay
ing for the ticket, Capt.
Masters said.
Printed on all tickets is a
note that tells visitors to
the campus to mail the tick
et to the police office with
out paying the fine.
Another change in this
year's regulation is the is
suing of motor scooter
"Last year scooter own
ers bought a regular $5 per
mit and transferred it to
their cars when cold weath
er set in," Capt. Masters
said. "This year there is an
increase in the number of
scooters, so $1 non-transfer-rable
permit for scooters is
issued. Students must buy a
ators at a roundtable discus
sion, spoke on everything
from what buildings will be
built in the next few years to
why conference rooms where
students can "drop-in" are
not economically feasible.
He also explained the prob
able future of Greek houses
along R Street and at other
that all faculty consider the
students' problem and be tol
erant of any students who
might not make it back to
classes in time for school
from the Orange Bowl game.
He emphasized that the pro
posal he will be introducing
trom the students will be a i
request that the Faculty Sen
ate inform the University
faculty members of the stu
dents' proposal and ask all
faculty members to consider
t h e students' problems in
getting home from the game.
He said that as he sees it,
Faculty Senate has three
choices Tuesday in consider
ing the students' proposal.
On one hand the faculty can
show no sympathy for the stu
dents in even recognizing the
Orange Bowl game as a legi
timate University function. Or
he said the faculty can have
deep sympathy with the hard
ships of the students, but feel
that their motion is not a
sound way to solve the prob
lem. Faculty Can Agree
The last alternative that
Pharis pointed out is that the
faculty members can agree
with the students' proposal
and vote for the recommenda
tion. Pharis noted that this is on
ly the first of many proposals
which Student Senate will
continue to present officially
to Faculty Senate for action.
He did emphasize that stu
dent government "can't clut
ter up the Faculty Senate with
a lot of meaningless motions,
but that the students must
continue to suggest sound and ;
significant issues.
Pharis inferred that one of
the students' greatest prob
lems in being heard by Facul
ty Senate will be the inherent
"jealousies of the faculty in
guarding their age old acad
emic prerogatives."

Fine Money Use
The money raised by the
fines and permits goes into
improving and leasing land
for parking lots, the salaries
of the two office girls and
the supplies used by the of
fice, Capt. Masters said.
"Improving parking lots
includes graveling, clearing
new land and tearing down
the houses which we did
this year, putting logs into
the lots to provide spacing
and the paving of parking
areas," Capt. Masters said.

of this area will be used for
University facilities or those
related to the University. The
University already owns
most of the land within this
area or it is being used for
University related activities,
he noted.
"The rest of the land will
be purchased by the Univer
sity by the right of eminent

he stressed. He illustrated

Breckenridge's talk included
details on extensive renova
tion and modernization in al
most all the classrooms and
buildings on campus. He noted
how buildings like University
High School will be changed
and adapted for University
classrooms and how o 1 d
houses and buildings not con
nected with the University will
be removed within the cam
puses' boundaries.
Plans for streets, under
ground pipes and wires and
access to the campus were all
pointed out by Breckenridge
as problems that the Univer
sity would have to work on,
change and renew in the next
ten years or so.
Specific comments made by
Breckenridge included such
subjects as the Senate's pro
posed "conference room s"
and Greek housing.
He said that although "con
ference rooms" where stu
dents could just "drop-in" and
talk with a professor after
class are a great Idea ; that
for at least the present time
were not economically feasi
ble. He pointed out that the
school right now just couldn't
afford the space and that in
the future it couldn't afford
the money to include these
rooms in its new buildings.
As for Greek housing
especially along R Street,
Breckenride noted that some
houses no doubt would want
to move from their present lo
cation because of moderniza
tion or expansion problems.
He suggested that these
houses which were not new
or which needed bad improve
ments might want to partici
pate in the Greek complex
or build on another spot.
Breckenridge did stress that
at least for the present time
this move would be complete
ly up to the individual houses
depending on their desires for
more space or new buildings.
