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
This request will be pre
sented as an alternative to
the University's announced
$40 fee increase for next
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.
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

calculation as to projected
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."
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

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.

sential that ASUN go on rec
ord" as favoring this move.
Sen. 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

treasurer of the student

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."
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."
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
"The chancellor of the Uni
versity has not asked the Gov
ernor to call a special ses
sion of the Legislature."

Living in rented rooms,
private homes, assorted
apartments and even trailer
houses are approximately
4,000 off-campus independent
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
