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 president. 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 candidates). 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 Clatanoff Commands Cadet Wing Air Force ROTC Cadet Wing staff assignments have been announced by Col. William H. Bowers, professor of aero pace studies. Cadet Col. Noran Clatanoff kas been selected as wing ommander. He will be assisted in di recting the wing by his staff which includes Allen Husa, executive officer: Stephen Braockman, operations of ficer; James Winney, admini strative officer; Ronald Sch wab, personal officer; Donald Morris, inspector; Lynn High, supply officer; Terry Sprat len, information officer; Wil liam Meeboer, personnel ser vices officer; and Richard Howe, test control officer. This staff has the respon sibility for the operation of the cadet wing for the coming semester. having twice as many candi dates as there are positions. From the living units, there will be a maximum of three times as many candidates slated per unit as there are positions. Candidates will then appear on the ballot for the Mar. 9 all-women's election to choose the new board. "The philosophy behind slat ing," Miss Dowling explained, "is to assure qualified girls are selected in the final ana lysis. It is thought that with slating, the electorate has qualified choices from which to choose their representa tives." She added that the number of applications turned in to date was "below expecta tions" and urged interested 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 gram with the exception of two or three of the best at tended sessions. The motion came as a re sult of a report on the tutorial program by Jerry Olson, scholarship chairman. Olson termed the present semester's tutorial program a "mixed success." Some of the sessions were only attended .by one or two persons all semester. Olson said the biggest prob lem was communication with individual houses. Olson urged that the tutor Clare DeWltr Five queen finalists for the second annual Army ROTC ball have been named, ac cording to John E. Mullens, publicity chairman for the ball. They are Clare DeWltz, Kris Lind, Susie Miller, Chris tina Schwartz and Diane Smith. The queen will be se lected by a vote of military i in urn i in ir rini.,i, By Jan Itkin Senior Staff Writer A by-law listing procedure for approving constitutions of new student organizations was passed by Student Senate Wednesday. Sen. Karen Westerburg, chairman of the ASUN activi ties committee, proposed the by-law which provided that organizations whose constitu tions have been returned will have up to 60 days to rewrite them or must cease to func tion as an organization for one year. "This is not to restrict or 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 reality. 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. Ron Pfeifer, Phi Delta The ta, was elected public rela tions chairman at the meet ing. Jim Shreck, Beta Theta Pi, was elected rush chair man. rw Diane Smith science students at the Fri day evening dance at the Lin coln Hotel. Mullens said the queen fi nalists were selected by a fac ulty and student board from a field of candidates submit ted by University living units. Although sponsored by the Army ROTC, the ball is open to any student in military sci Army Q 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 Senate. 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. "I'm leary of birth control but I'm in favor of planning a Shreck was earlier nominat ed for public relations chair man. Bill Minier, Phi G a m ma Delta, and Bob Ensz, Del ta Tau Delta, were also nomi nated for rush chairman Pfeifer worked on the IFC public relations committee during the past year and has served as an ASUN student senator. Outlining his program to the IFC, Pfeifer urged that each house select a public re lations chairman for the IFC chairman to work with. He said that he would -also select a person with artistic talents to work on his committee for the various art projects that must be done. Christine Schwartz ueen Finalists ence. Miss DeWitz is parliamen tarian for Alpha Omicron Pi. A junior in Teachers College, she is majoring in business teaching. A senior in Teachers C o 1 lege, Miss Lind is a member of Kappa Alpha Theta and participates in ACE and UNSEA. Sen. Kathy (Weber) Frank asked whether by-laws also had to be approved or just constitutions. Larry Frolik, vice president of ASUN, said that approval pertained to constitutions on ly. Two-Thirds Vote An amendment to the by laws signified that ASUN ap proval of organizations would be decided by a two-thirds vote. Sen. Bill Coufal, speaker of the house, moved to amend the by-law to say that approv al of the organization will re- family in accord with income and then adding one or two." '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 as Christians is to define re ligion ourselves and then live it." Kris Lind Miss Miller is a junior In Arts and Sciences, majoring In journalism. She is social chairman for PI Beta Phi, and is active in Family Proj jeet. A resident of Pound Hall, Miss Schwartz is a sophomore in Teachers College, major ing in English. She is a mem ber of Cadence Countesses quire a two-thi lajority of the Student Se. The by law originally specified a sim ple majority. He explained that the ap proval of an organization is a permanent matter and like other permanent matters, it should require a two-thirds majority. "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 read organizations' constitu tions before they are brought before the Senate for approv al. Schaaf noted that approval of organizations would prob ably prove significant in the future and careful considera tion should be given to the matter. Constitutional Committee Another motion pertaining to approval of organizations and constitutions by Miss 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 Susie Miller and is dance director for her hall's skit in Coed Follies. Miss Smith is vice president of Alpha Phi. A junior in Arts and Sciences, majoring in art, she was a homecoming queen finalist, a Cornhusker beauty queen and a Builder's chair man. She is a three-year member of AWS Board and is slated for president of AWS. 'r. ' , , ll ll ill I Illlll"""'"""l IIIIIUMI HililH 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 sist of the ASUN secretaries of organizations, the chairman of the ASUN activities com mittee, and two persons ap 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. In other business before the Senate, a resolution stating that senators should present motions in writing the week before they were actually pro posed whenever feasible, was passed. 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 Air Force Week at the University. class standing will be taken into consideration by draft boards in offering deferments. . During the Korean War, freshmen had to rank in the upper half of their class or score 70 or above on the test in order to be ineligible for the draft. Sophomores had to be in the upper two-thirds of their class or score 70 or above, while juniors had to rank in the upper three-fourths of their class or score 70 or above. Gen. Henninger said the de ferments are given in the na tional interest and people who are accomplishing in mathe matics or science are prob ably considered more valu able to the national interest. Charges were leveled that the test given during the Korean War was partial to those in mathematics or science. 'Teachers Feared 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.
