-J MAR 14 lege Monday, March 14, 1966 The Daily Nebraskan Vol. 81, No. 79 ASUN To Present Resolution v . kv - r Galling For By Jan Itkin Senior Staff Writer Student Senate will request the Board of Regents Tuesday to ask for a special session of the Legislature to deal with the University's financial problems. This request will be pre sented as an alternative to the University's announced $40 fee increase for next year. At a special meeting of the Student Senate Sunday, a resolution was unanimously passed "requesting and strongly urging the University Board of Regents to ask Gov. Morrison to call a special session of the Nebraska Legis lature for the purpose of solv ing the current instructional financial problem." Vice Chancellor Joseph Soshnik earlier announced that student fees for next year will probably be raised by approximately $40 because of a disparity in money reques ted from the Legislature and the amount needed. Miscalculation Many sources including a report published by the Stu dent Senate last week have stated that this disparity was caused because of the Uni versity Administration's mis Miss E-Week Finalists Eleven University coeds have been named finalists for the 1966 Miss E-Week title.

At another special session of Student Senate last week, it was pointed out that one means of avoiding the $40 in crease would be to have the Legislature appropriate more funds for the University be fore next semester. Bob Samuelson, chairman of the ASUN Ad Hoc commit tee investigating the proposed tuition hike, made the motion Sunday and added, "This act is a necessity. We would be letting the Board of Regents know that we are strongly in accord as to what we want them to do. Let them know where the students stand." Resolution Discussion revolved around whether to have an ASUN del egation present the resolution to the Regents or whether to ask Chancellor Clifford Har din to present it on their be half. "We should have the stu dents do it," said Kent Neu meister, ASUN president. "A University is composed of three diverse elements t h e students, the Administration and the faculty. Since this is coming from the students, we should present it ourselves." He added that it was "es Home, Frances Ogen, Mary Keim, Carolyn Lyon, Linda Erickson, Jerrine Ripp, Jo Christensea and Nancy Stark. The coeds were selected by a board of engineering stu dents on the basis of beauty, poise and personality. The winner will be chosen by an engineering student vote and will reign over E-Week ac tivities, including the open house displays April 28. Miss Merriam, a senior in Teachers College, was a pom pon girl, cheerleader during 1963-65 and a Cornhusker beauty queen. She is a mem ber of Alpha Omicron Pi.

Skip Sorief said, "ASUN would still be going on record, but we should take the proper channels which would mean going through the Chancellor." Communication Channels Sen. Cuz Guenzel noted that one of the goals of the ASUN this year has been to establish the proper channels of com munication and therefore ASUN should "go ourselves and take direct action." "Direct communication is what we have been working for all year," noted Samuel son. "By all means, we should consult Hardin, but first we need an approved motion from which to work." Sen. Dave Snyder said that if at all possible the students should present the resolution themselves after consulting with Hardin. He felt the Chancellor should present it only as a last resort. It was decided that after consultation with Hardin, the students would present the resolution at Tuesday's Re gents meeting if at all poss ible. The Senate would ask Hardin to present the resolu tion if the students could not. Other points of discussion Announced tects (AIA) is Miss Sark. She is a senior majoring in archi tecture, office manager of the Blueprint Magazine and past treasurer of the student chapter of AIA. Miss Van Home Miss Lyon Miss Ripp Miss Stark wmm Miss Brock Session consisted of whether it would be advisable to ask the gov ernor directly to call the ses sion. It was decided that the best thing to do would be to go through the University chan nels first. The Board of Regents will most likely comply with Stu dent Senate's request, accord ing to Clarence Swanson, Re gents president. He said that the Regents will request Gov. Frank Mor rison to call a special session of the Legislature to solve the University's financial di lemma. Swanson spoke with the Daily Nebraskan following the special Student Senate meeting Sunday. During that meeting the Senate passed a resolution urging the Regents to ask the governor to call a special session. "We (the Regents) have de bated and talked over the pos sibility of asking the Gover nor to call a special session previously," Swanson noted, "but we didn't think a special session was possible." Expense The probable expense of a special session was one fac tor Swanson mentioned that might cause reluctance on the part of the Governor in caEing a special session to deal with the University prob lem. "Had there been additional reasons like apportion ment," he continued, "a special session would not seem so impractical. But to call one on our (the Univers ity's) account is not likely." He added, however, that asking "is not wrong. We'll probably ask and let the Gov ernor decide what to do." Student Presentation Swanson noted that the Stu dent Senate resolution could either be presented by the students or by Chancellor Clifford Hardin "either way is perfectly all right," but that he himself favored having Hardin present it. "Then the resolution would be sure to be presented Tues day," he added. Chancellor Hardin said Sun day that it was "up to the Student Senate to decide who would present the motion-" "I told them Tuesday that I would be willing to present such a motion if they wished," he said. He added, "I would not venture an opinion as to the weight such a resolution would carry, but can only say I will be happy to see that the res olution is presented." Administration HasnH Requested Special Session The University administra tion has not requested the governor to call a special s e s s i o n of the Legislature keyed to University financial matters, Gov. Frank Morri son's office has reported. University officials Thurs day informed the Student Senate that a special session possibility has been d I s -cussed with some state offi cials. Gene Budig, the governor's administrative assistant, said he was authorized to make a one-sentence statement in the matter: "The chancellor of the Uni versity has not asked the Gov ernor to call a special ses sion of the Legislature." Birth Control Is Panel Topic A panel discussion on birth control will be held in the East Union Thursday at 4 p.m. Discussion leaders will in clude Dr. Richard Garling house, Lincoln physician; Dr. Hazel Fox, chairman and pro fessor of food and nutrition; the Rev.

Three Campus Music Groups To Present Spring Concerts By Toni Victor Junior Staff Writer Three musical concerts by University groups will be giv en within the next two weeks on campus.

These are students who commute daily to the campus, who create a large part of the parking problem, who help keep the city bus lines in busi ness and who want to feel they are part of the campus while maintaining an inde pendent status. Most of these independents live off campus by choice. Some live off campus for financial reasons. These stu dents find there are great advantages to their mode of life and, at the same time, great disadvantages. Freedom, Comfort One coed commented that the availability of the family car is a definite asset if one is living with parents. Another student noted that living in an apartment provides a great deal of freedom with the comforts of a real home. , Disadvantages range from difficulty in meeting girls to communication problems with campus organizations, according to students inter viewed. Rich Meier, who lived in a dormitory last year and is presently living in an apart ment, said his main complaint about off-campus living is the poor social life. "Off-campus independents who didn't grow up in Lincoln are in sort of a limbo," Meier said. He explained that social life for this type of student is too often restricted to one or two friends, and that for him, meeting girls is much more difficult than it was when he lived in a dorm. "I've sort of withdrawn since I moved off campus," Meier said. "It's very hard to keep up with the campus." Lacks Information "The off-campus independ ent doesn't have anyone to tell him what is going on, and he has to really work at it to find out," Bob Bogott, UNI CORNS president, observed. Bogott said that campus organizations "don't make any special or particular ef fort" to inform off-campus independents of their activ ities. "But," Bogott added, "this doesn't mean they Cont. on Page 3, Col. 2 nual Spring Concert at 7:30 p.m. in the Nebraska Union ballroom.
