HOPING TO BE SLATED . . . Polly Rhynalds, a junior coed,
signs up for an interview with the AWS Board slating com
mittee. Interviews will be Friday and Saturday.
Filings For AWS
Board Due Friday
1 Candidates for AWS Board
will be selected on Friday and
Saturday from interviews of
those interested, according to
Vicki Dowling, AWS vice
Miss Dowling explained
that applications should be
turned in by noon Friday, and
that women should choose an
interview time.
"We. hope the interest
shown in AWS earlier this
year will be evident in an in
crease in the number of peo
ple going through inter
views," she noted.
The interviewing board, she
explained, is composed of the
out-going members of the
AWS Board, an advisor and
the three candidates for presi
dent. "We look for straight for
wardness in presenting
ideas," she noted. "There are
no set ideas or philosophies
we look for, but people who
can present ideas well."
This year for the first time
there will be a dual system
of representation. Women
may run from either their
class or living unit. There
will be six representatives
from the sophomore class, six
from the junior class, and six
from the senior class (three
of whom are the presidential
Living unit representation
will be "roughly proportion
al," Miss Dowling noted.
There will be one representa
tive from East Campus, one
from Lincoln, two from sorori
ties and three from dormi
tories. "If someone wishes to run
from her living unit," she
added, "she may run to rep
resent the living unit where
she will be living next year.
For Instance, a woman who
belongs to a sorority but lives
with her family in Lincoln
could run either from her
class or from Lincoln, but not
from her sorority. It's not a
question of affiliation but of
where one lives."
Twelve people will be slated
from the sophomore class,
12 from the junior class, six
from the senior class thus

"The philosophy behind slat

"is to assure qualified girls

qualified choices from which
to choose their representa

women students to apply.
IFC Moves To Discontinue
Majority Of Tutorial Sessions
The Interfraternity Council
Wednesday night approved a
motion which would discon
tinue the IFC tutorial pro

two or three of the best at

The motion came as a re

program by Jerry Olson,
scholarship chairman. Olson
termed the present semester's

Group Discusses Morality
Of Birth Control Issues
Questions on the morality
and practicality of birth con
trol were raised in a discus
sion at the Newman Center
Wednesday afternoon.
Steve Mcintosh, a Univer
sity student, introduced the
discussion defining birth con
trol as the prevention of con
ception of a fetus. He said
that birth control can be
talked about as a moral issue
and as a practical level of
Theologians and churches
have stated the moral issue of
birth control as anything that
goes against natural law, Mc
intosh said.
He said the practical side
of the issue is dependent upon
families' limited incomes and
the health of mothers.
Today practical moralists
see birth control as the "in"
thing to do, he surmised.
'Up To Individual'
Roman Catholics are forbid
den to practice birth control
yet, Mcintosh said, but most
Protestants, Jews and non-
ing sessions be periodically
announced in classes and on
bulletin boards in the depart
ments. He also asked that a sched
ule of the sessions be pub
lished in the Daily Nebraskan.
Larry Frolik had earlier
questioned the future attend
ance at the sessions pointing
out that "spring is a bad
time to push scholastics" and
that some of the students are
no longer pledges and may
not have the pressure on them
as they did formerly.

Although sponsored by the
Army ROTC, the ball is open
to any student in military sci
ganizations," Miss Wester
burg maintained, "but to en
courage them to revise and
return their constitutions."
Sen. Bob Lott questioned
whether or not an organiza
tion who had been suspended
could simply change its name
and submit its former consti
tution. '
Miss Westerburg replied
that the problem had never
occurred and that the consti
tution would be reviewed by
the committee and if ap
proved, the approval of the
organization was up to the
Christians think it is entirely
up to the individual whether
or not to practice birth con
trol. "It is the responsibility of
all men and women to know
what Is morally right and
practical," he said.
"Is it morally right or
wrong to limit the size of a
family," and, "Should federal
aid be given for birth con
trol?" were among questions
that were raised.
One student said that he
thought people with limited
families were deprived from
the love among parents and
children in a large family.
He said that the Roman
Catholic Church says the rhy
thm method of birth control
is natural and right but me
chanical and chemical meth
ods cannot be used.
"In this country I don't
think we have a population ex
plosion problem or a starva
tion problem," "he declared.

Outlining his program to
the IFC, Pfeifer urged that

said that he would -also select

'Sufficient Cause'
Chuck Rucker, a Newman
Club member and University
student, stated that one ques
tion the young generation has
to face is, what will I con
sider sufficient cause to u s e
birth control?
Rucker cited that the rea
sons for using birth control
need to be worked out by the
people of the Church with a
professional attitude.
One student said that Catho
lics want to be told what to do
and don't want to take re
sponsibility. "It is the respon
sibility of all people to do
what they think is morally
right," he said.
Other questions raised
were, "Is the birth control
pill a supernatural act going
against the will of God?" and
"What are going to be the
criteria in deciding whether
using birth control is morally
right or w;rong?"
A Catholic married student
said that birth control be
comes a critical problem af
ter marriage and should be
worked out before. Morality
becomes less important and
practicality can't be ignored
and becomes the main impor
tance, he said.
"We feel a moral obligation
to have children but the ques
tion is how many," fhe mar
ried student continued.
It is morally wrong not to
have children without a good
reason, another student said.
Marital adjustment and the
fact that pregnancy changes
a woman's psychological out
look were offered as reasons
to use birth control during the
first year of marriage.
A coed asked if it is mor
ally right for people with no
intention of having children
to get married.
A student concluded t h e
discussion saying, "Our job

"Since the senators are not
usually acquainted with the
constitution of organizations
and vote only to pass or re
ject them, more than a sim
ple majority is not needed,"
Sen. Bill Potts said.
Sen. Terry Schaaf pointed
out that the committee recog
nized the constitutions only
according to form and clarity
and ASUN was to approve or
disapprove the organization on
the basis of contents.
"We are not considering
form or clarity, but the exis
tence of an organization, and
therefore the matter is im
portant enough to decide on
the basis of a two-thirds vote,"
he added.
Sen. Tom Pickering suggest
ed that individual senators
take it upon themselves to

tions before they are brought
before the Senate for approv

of organizations would prob

future and careful considera

Test Scores To Decide
College Draft Deferment
The Nebraska State Selec
tive Service Director, Gen.
Guy Henninger, said Wednes
day he thinks the national
selective service will "go
ahead with testing" to deter
mine college deferments.
Gen. Henninger recently re
turned from a meeting with
other state selective service
directors from the Mountain
and West Coast states and
with Lt. Gen. Lewis Hershey.
He said he thought "the de
cision was made already be
fore we got there because
ours was a small group and
the last of three meetings."
The test would be given at
different locations over the
state, although he was not
sure when because the Selec
tive Service has not yet con
tracted for the testing.
However, he did say that
he thought the tests would be
given before school was out to
make it convenient for the in
dividual. The test was previously con
tracted to an organization at
Princeton University.
Gen. Henninger said he
thought the test scores and

Westerburg concerned the es
tablishment of a constitution
al committee.
She explained that the ac
tivities committee was "over
loaded" and could not easily
carry out the added responsi
bility of examining the consti
tutions. The committee would con

of organizations, the chairman
of the ASUN activities com

pointed by the ASUN presi
dent. Mrs. Frank asked whether
the committee could rule on
reasons other than form and
clarity and was answered that
it could not.

Pickering, who introduced
the motion, explained that
more careful consideration
could be given to major issues
if such a system were in ef
fect. Sen. Bob Samuelson object
ed that such a plan might
prove inflexible.
"This is not a hard and fast
rule," Schaaf replied. "It sim
ply states that this should be
done whenever possible and
there are times when it would
be good to have a week to
think things over."
ASUN also passed a resolu
tion designating next week as

Law Suit'
Some faculty members may
have used the liability ques
tion as an excuse to withdraw
approval of the ASUN Faculty-Evaluation
book, but others
were really concerned about
the possibility of being sued,
according to William Torrence
associate professor of business
organization and manage
ment. Torrence, a member of the
Committee on Student Affairs,
noted that it was he who made
the motion withdrawing sup
port of the Faculty-Evaluation
book after the question of
legal liability arose, but add
ed that he was also the one
who originally proposed the
motion to grant approval.
He alluded to a statement
that G. Robert Ross, vice
chancellor and dean of stu
dent affairs, made at Tues
day's ASUN Roundtable Ross
suggested that the Committee
on Student Affairs recinded
approval of the book last week
for reasons other than liabili
ty. "My participation in with
drawing approval was on the
basis of liability and on no
other," Torrence noted.
At the Monday meeting of
the Committee on Student Af
fairs, a motion was passed
approving the concept of the
book and expressing a willing
ness to help in working out
the legal liability problems.
