Mary Almy, p esident of
the Residence Association for
Men (RAM); Tom Holeman,
president of the Abel Hall ex
ecutive council; and Tony
Redman, president of the Cath

stressed the existance of or

vidual units and the need for
organization between their
Almy pointed out that al
though all the dormitories are
individually organized, no cen
tral organization exists at the
present time.
Social Committee
"There have been attempts
this year toward organiza
tion," he added, "like the inter-dorm
coordinating com
mittee. A social committee
has already bee in opera
tion for sometime and last
year a report on co-educational
dorms were presented
which was a first attempt to
ward inter-dormitory organi
zation." Redman stressed that the
work of the inter-dorm social
committee whose primary
purpose was o organize and
coordinate functions between
the dorms, was a start to
ward inter-dorm cooperation.
"With enough money to
work with, large-scale pro
jects can result," he contin
ued. "Right now the social
.committee is planning a
street dance to be held some
time in the spring, probably
on S Street."
Holeman said that while
the other dormitory govern
ments were "very well or
ganized, the problem at Abel
is not in maintaining a gov
ernment but in organizing it.
What we do now will set a
definite pattern for the fu
ture." Unfortunately we won't be

Bureau To Help Students
The ASUN Tutorial Service
Bureau is now ready to start
recommending qualified tutors
to students needing help in dif
ferent courses, according to
Erma Winterer, chairman.
The bureau's mais purpose
is to "assist students in find
ing tutors to help them in
their troublesome courses by
maintaining a complete list of
department-chosen and faculty-approved
personnel who
have excelled in their respec
tive fields," Miss Winterer
Miss Winterer indicated that

Redman said that the or
ganization in Cather was
"currently very good." He
explained that the 1" had
recently passed a new con
stitution which created
"more interest on the part of
the individuals who art on
the council."
"At Cather the general
goal regarding an inter-dorm
council is to eventually have
a fairly strong organization,
he continued, "but at first a
closely knit organization
might tend to gi- the coun
cil predominant control over
the individual halls. That is
why we favor, for the time
being, a coordinating body
fashioned after the existing
social committee."
In 1964, he noted, "--npts
were made to create an m-ter-dorm
body but iai-c be

approval ana a general ay
amy on tne part of the stu
dents. Also tnere was a lack
oi mtra-oorm organization
that has now been remedied.

seerne to nave involved spe
cial interests, finding leader
ship and communicating on
sucn a large scale,
Almy suggested that the
greatest problem in an indi
vidual dormitory area was
"We must find people who
are interested and capable,"
Almy said, "In Selleck this
year, I'm pretty well satis
fied with the people I ive."
He added that if people are
made to feel an organization
is worthwhile, they would
participate and the apathy
would probably disap-"3r.
"A centralized inter-dorm
system would coordinate this
and would help reduce the
apathy," he noted. "Since Sel
leck is organized with a strong
system of centralization, a
centralized council is readily
acceptable to us." -
He continued that, as he
proposes an inter-dorm sys
tem be set up, it would first
include people who were in
terested and eventually help
charge for the service but de-1
clined to state a price. "I
hate to quote a price that is
up to the individual tutor!"
The bureau's records, which
include extensive files on a
number of paid teachers, are
located in the ASUN office.
Miss Winterer pointed out
that the files were quite com
plete with specific informa
tion about the prospective tu
tors including the classifica
tion of the tutor, his remain
ing length of time in school,

as it could perform services
that would create greater In
Holeman said that making
policy statements for groups
with different interests might
prove to be a major problem
He disagreed that apathy was
a major issue.
"You only get out of a gov
ernment what you put into it,"
he said. "Participation is nev
er forced, but those who do
participate derive much from
taking part and they partici
pate because they want to."
Redman said that a major
problem in organizing was
"finding qualified officers"
and that many good officers
"are only there for a year and
so there's no continuity."
Other problems he mention
ed included:
Finding a fair way of
nominating officers.
Providing for a separation
of powers between an inter
dorm council and the Admin
istration regarding areas such
as finance.
Separating powers be
tween the council and the
dorms themselves as rulings
beneficial to the majority
might conflict with the mi
nority. The three presidents agreed
that there where many advan
tages of a dormitory organiza
tion. Almy stressed, "The Admin
istration has become more
and more centralized in deal
ing with the dorms. It is neces
sary for the dorms to become
centralized too In order to
have a voice where these pol
icies are concerned."
"Also with a central organ
ization there would be greater
communication," he con
tinued, "individual dorms
could use each other's ideas
of what can be done to pro
mote student interest."
Possible disadvantages in
volved with central organiza
tion include working with con
flicting interests because of
differences m the size of the
individual dormitories and of
finding qualified personnel to
effectively direct such an or

The files, she said, cover
such varied subjects as an

She urged all University
students to take advantage of
the files for the problems in

extra help or explanation
could surmount."

Hears Appeals

The ASUN Parking Appeals
Board has reported they re
viewed 76 appeals last semes
ter. Of these, 13 were granted,
57 denied, two dismissed and
further recommendations
were made on four of the ap
peals. Dave Snyder, chairman of
the ASUN parking committee,
said the number of appeals
granted by the board might
have been higher except that
the board automatically de
nies the appeals of students
who don't appear for the
scheduled hearing.
Snyder said there were a
number of cases like this, and
if all "legitatmate complaints
were heard," the appeals
granted might be "closer to
40 per cent"

Nebraska business leaders
were challenged Thursday to
join the nation's top corporate
executives in doubling contri
butions to higher education by
Holgar J. Johnson of New
York City, who was speaking
at the annual Nebraska Foun
dation trustee's meeting, call
ed increased University sup
port a prudent investment by
business in new knowledge,
educated manpower and ex
panding markets.
Business recognizes, John
son said, that the increased
costs of higher education are
going to be paid for one way
or another.
He pointed out that by vol
untarily supporting colleges
and universities, corporations
can exercise judgment as to
where they will obtain the
best return on the funds in
vested in higher education.
"By 1970 we will face a
serious national challenge be
cause enrollments in higher
education by that time are
expected to reach eight mil
lion students," said Johnson,
"and the cost of running these
educational institutions will
climb to $14 billion annual
ly." Johnson said that if busi
ness is to accept its share of
this challenge and to continue
to provide, as it now is, one
fifth of all gift support of high
er education, then corporate
support of our colleges will
need to climb to $500 million
annually by 1970.
He noted that federal and
state governments would con
tinue to increase the flow of
funds to higher education, but
nevertheless voluntary sup
port of colleges and univer
sities should be doubled from
the $1.25 billion it achieved
in 1964 to the $2.5 billion
which will be needed by 1970.
