'Safeguard, Not Whip 9
AWS Court Purpose
Not an ultimate whip, but
a safeguard is how Vicki
Dowling, AWS vice president,
describes the purpose of the
AWS Court which meets ev
ery Thursday afternoon at
4:30 p.m.
"People seem to think the
court is the ultimate whip or
bad guy of AWS," she said.
"Actually the purpose of the
court Is to consider individual
cases in light of individual cir
cumstances. So you see, the
court really acts as a safe
guard." Miss Bowling explained that
there are two different classi
fications of cases those
that are called to court involv
ing women who have accumu
lated 30 or more demerits or
have taken an illegal over
night and those that are
brought to court involving ap
peals because demerits have
been accumulated because of
mitigating circumstances.
At Oklahoma State Univer
sity recently, snow fell and
the pipes froze one winter's
day last month. The pipes
cracked under sub-zero tem
peratures leaving part of the
college campus without water
for three hours.
The water from the pipes
flowed over onto the side
walks, creating icy hazards
as it froze. The water had to
foe shut off at the student un
ion leaving the union with a
scullery full of dirty dishes
three hours later.
The Minnesota Daily re
ported a Polish carnival par
ty that was sponsored by the
University of Minnesota Po
lish Club. The party was com
plete with Polish pastries, Po
lish movies and cartoons, and
Polish polkas and waltzes.
The Daily Iowan remem
bers Elliot Ness because of
his colleague Mr. Robert G.
Cladwell, professor of crim
inology in the sociology and
antropology department at
Iowa State University.
"My impression," says Mr.
Caldwell, "is that Ness was
never the kind of man that
tetlevision created. He wasn't
a swashbuckler, although he
was undoubtedly courageous
and completely dedicated to
his service."
At Oklahoma State Univer
sity this semester, the foreign
film program will try to an
swer a question that philoso
phers have been asking
throughout history: "What is
man?" The first film comes
up with an answer that seems
to be a combination of two
philosophic thoughts: "Man Is
his memories" said Marcel
Proust and "Man is his sym
bols" stated a thesis of Jung.
Pastel stockings? Square
toed shoes and high boots?
These things are part of the
new fashion pictue of 1965,
but seniors in clothing and
textile design at Oklahoma
State are proving that there
is nothing new under the sun.
The students are presenting
a historic fashion comparison
at a local television station.
The show will prove that tex
tured hose were worn as far
back as the 15th century by
men. Granny dresses are
straight from the Puritan
Era, say the fashion-conscious
The coeds concluded that
"milady's styles seem to go
in cycles." An instructor at
the university, Mrs. Mary
Murphy, insists that every
thing in a woman's wardrobe
can be traced back through
history. Jean Harlow, Em
press Josephine, Mae West
and more recently Jacqueline
Kennedy have led particular
styles during their period of

Ivy leagues.
Flat tops
The court hears anywhere
from two to 14 cases a week,
she said, and usually the ma
jority of them are appeals.
"Usually people don't come
to court unless they feel they
have a justifiable excuse,"
Miss Dowling pointed out.
"We try each case on its in
dividual merits and have no
laid out way of deciding a
case, but the cases usually
follow a path."
Excuses, too, usually follow
a pattern, she continued. Car
trouble, not getting picked up
on time to get back to cam
pus and getting stuck in the
mud are three circumstances
commonly cited.
Certain times of the year
such as migration and week

One of the more amusing
cases that the court heard re
cently concerned a girl who
was bitten by an animal on
the way from Missouri and
had to go back to Columbia
for treatment, Miss Dowling
commented. The girl was ex
cused. "It is the attitude of the
court," she said, "that a
womemn should do everything
she reasonably can to get in
on time or at least notify au
thorities of some difficulty.
Also she should attempt to get
some verification of her story
like a receipt from a gas
station or whatever."
"One problem is that peo
ple just don't know what to
expect," she added. "They
should have the details care
fully figured out, have the
times straight and verifica
tions ready."
"Also, many people come
in thinking 'I just can't tell
them this or that'," she con
tinued. "We consider it none
of our business what anyone
was doing. We're not here to
pass moral judgments but to
see whether or not the rules
have been obeyed."
According to the AWS con
stitution, the court has the
power to impose campuses
and privilege probation and
to remove demerits or punish
ments it may have imposed.

Guidelines Needed
Senators, Executives
Re-evaluate Methods
The ASUN senators and
executive board round-table
Thursday night revolved
around a re-evaluation of first
semester procedures and a
projection of ideas that may
be incorporated into second
semester plans.
Much of the discussion re
volved around the relation
ship between the Senate and
the executive branch of stu
dent government.
Kent Neumeister, ASUN
president, noted that there
has been much criticism at
the beginning of the year to
ward the executive board
stifling creativity and initia
tive of the senator by exces
sive control.
"At first I thought this was
so," said Sen. Curt Bromm,
"and perhaps not so much
railroading at the first would
have made the senators feel
better. But now I realize that
the guiding was necessary at
least at first."
"The Senate would have
been chaos without guidelines
at first," agreed Sen. Gary
Neumeister explained that
the role of the executive com
mittee was to anticipate prob
lems that might arise over
certain issues and obtain the
answers before the questions
were asked on the Senate
Discussion on the Senate
floor and what lines it should
take was also considered.
Sen. Kathy Weber said,
"Senators have a right to
know why certain issues are
brought up. Granted, com
plete discussion on the Senate
floor could get rather drawn
out yet senators should be
given the opportunity to fully
understand what we are vot
ing about."
Sen. Bill Hansmire sug
gested that perhaps fuller un
derstanding of proposals
could be obtained if on large
issues the bill could be intro
duced at one meeting and
voted on at the next.
"This is the way other stu
dent governments in the Big
Eight handle this problem,"
he added.
Larry Frolik, ASUN vice
president, said that too often
Senate approves something
too fast without considering
the consequences.
"If no alternatives are of
fered, of course measures are
passed," replied Sen. Dave
Snyder, who added that t o o
often senators do not know
enough about a specific meas
ure to think of alternatives
right away.
Jan Binger added, "There
is no time to think and take
the other view. That's why a
system of first and s e c o n d
readings would seem prefera
ble." Sen. Liz Aitken said that
some things like the Faculty
Evaluation could wait to be
read several times and thus
any system of first and sec
and readings has to be flexi
ble. Sen. Terry Schaaf pointed
out that rather than compli
cate matters with addition of
by-laws which would have to
be suspended in such cases,
matters which required more
thought or study could sim
ply be tabled until the next
Inter-committee communi
cations and special reports
were also discussed at the
round table.
Sen. Tom Pickering sug
gested that a booklet be pub
lished containing reports from
various ASUN committees in
order to let all committees
know exactly what the others
are doing.
"Chairmen could turn in
their goals at the beginning of
a semester," Miss Aitken
added, "and if a special issue
comes up it could be added on.
This would not only aid In
communication between the
committees but could serve as
a check on the individual com
mittees." The idea of presenting form
al committee reports at every
meeting was disregarded as
being useless and a waste of
Sen. Bill Coufal suggested
combining the philosophies of
meetings and roundtables so
that various committees and

senators would be well ac
quainted with the workings of
each other.
'The meetings may be long
er but about twice as much
could get accomplished," he
Pickering noted that such an 1
arrangement might tend to
"degrade the prestige of Sen
ate" and added that under
standing could be reached by
other means.
Schaaf said, "Senators
shouldn't be afraid to ques
tion, table or vote down a pro
posal unless it is completely
understood. Just because a
committee presents a pro-:
posal, doesn't mean it has to:
be voted through." j
Miss Aitken suggested that
lobbying would be an asset to
ASUN because it would allow
the senators to see both sides
of particular issues.
"This is one thing that has
been sadly neglected," she
Frolik said that he thought
speeches should be made on
particular problems that
would not necessarily lead to
a vote.
"We tend to think we're up
against stone walls at times
and that is when there should
be people speaking out," he
Other discussion hinged up
on expanding areas of Senate
interest more into the educa
tional and cultural area.
For the second year, the
University will offer an eight
week Summer Institute in
Mathematics for 40 high
school teachers in Nebraska
beginning June 13.
The purpose of the Insti
tute, made possible by a Na
t i o n a 1 Science Foundation
grant, is to help weakly
trained but scholastically able
mathematics teachers update
their training.
Hyde Park Discussion
Turns to Campus Topics.
The issues argued and dis
cussed at Hyde Park Thurs
day revealed a change in the
tone of the forum.
The subject matter of the
speakers' talks was not of
Viet Nam, nor of ideology,
nor of metaphysics, but of the
situations, problems and na
ture of the University campus.
Among the speakers was
John Atwood who set the tone
of the forum with his com
ments that the "unusually
dressed" students in the
crowd were beatniks or "Com
munists." Atwood asked, "Do
you people really want to
dress like this or do you do
it so people will look at you?"
The subsequent speakers
then took Atwood's words
and argued, dissected and re
hashed his ideas, finally dis
cussing the questions of tol
eration, on-sight character
judgment and freedom of the
Liz Aitkin, chairman of the
Union Talks and Topics com
mittee said, "With the change
of subject matter Hyde Park
may become more of a battle
ground for actual tangible is
sues." John Schrekinger com
mented, "It's been a clash be
tween the well-dressed and
the not so well-dressed; It's
not really as simple as that
but that is basically what has

"I like a Hyde Park like this
because it presents a com

Approximately 200 students
jammed into the Union lounge
and the crowd overflowed In
to the hallways. Audience
participation was lively with
much laughter, many ques
tions from the floor, heck
ling and "pplause.
Carl Davidson, president of
the campus Students for a
Democratic Society and a
regular speaker at previous
forums, did not speak at
Thursday's session.
Viet Nam was not discussed
in moral or political terms;
the only allusion to the topic
was by men who were dis
cussing their personal rela
tions with the draft.
Some of the issues discussed
were school spirit, traffic
lights on 14th St. and AWS
elections. One speaker put In
a plea asking students to go
hear Sen. Wayne Morse speak
this weekend.
Pam Harris, a member of
the Talks and Topics Commit
tee, summed up her reaction
to Thursday's forum: "I think
it's a lot better as far as the
average student's participa
tion goes."
