Student Judiciary To Consider Senate Reapportionment Issue Whether ASUN has the right to reapportion colleges or not will be decided this fall by the Student Court. A petition was filed in the court on May 13, 1966, charg ing that the reapportionment of Senate seats is "not in harmony with the require ment of directly proportional representation, and the reap portionment was not carried out at the time provided for such in the Constitution." David Senseney, a law stu dent elected to ASUN from the Professional College, filed tbe petition against Bill Too ley, a pharmacy student who received a Senate seat from the Professional College un der the reapportionment. What Senseney opposed was the resolution which was ap proved by Student Senate stating that "in'the event that there are fewer candidates than there are positions for any college, the college which has the greatest per cent of enrollment not represented will receive another representative." Abbott, CFDP Advocate Rights Enactment Plan In a speech before Student Senate Wednesday, former ASUN Presidential candidate Steve Abbott resigned his Sen ate seat and called for the en actment of a Student Bill of Rights. The question of a Student Bill of Rights comprised the major issue in last year's ASUN Presidential race be tween Abbott, Sen. Dave Sny der and ASUN President Ter ry Schaaf. Abbott, who ran on the Campus Freedom Democra tic Party platform, advocated the enactment of their Student Bill of Rights during his cam paign. The Bill of Rights, as it ap peared in the CFDP White Paper Number 1, consisted of 16 separate articles calling for student rights in 16 sepa rate areas. Emphasis of the campaign, however, lay in the first arti cle which stated: "All students have the right to establish and participate in a democratic student govern ment with the final power and authority to formulate, legislate and ajudicate all rules and regulations pertain ing to student life outside the classroom, with tbe single provision that those rules and regulations be consistent with local, state and federal laws and the United States Consti tution." In an interview printed in the Daily Nebraskan April 22, Abbott explained that in or der for students to have a shared responsibility with the Administration, shared rights must also exist. He also outlined a tentative plan of action. First, the CFDP Eill of Eights would be brought be The resolution also stated that the enrollment figures of the professional schools and graduate colleges will be kept apart from the undergradu ate colleges in order to de termine the number of rep resentatives from them. The enrollment figures would be based upon the second semes ter figures. The resolution was ap proved at the March 23 Sen ate meeting, before the April 1 deadline for apportionment matters as stated in tbe ASUN constitution. Senseney explained last spring that tie had chosen Tooiey as a defendant arbi trarily and added that if the suit was approved by t h e court, he felt John Hall and Mike Jess (the other two sen ators who received their seats through the redistribution) would be expected to resign their seats. Tooiey stated his position in a letter to the editor of the Daily Nebraskan last Spring. "The Senate must have 35 fore Student Senate to "iron out any vagueries or mis statements. Secondly, it would be re ferred to the Office of Student Affairs for distribution to the administrators who would be concerned or effected. At that time, Abbott ex plained, the ASUN would set up a tentative timetable of, the investigation to prevent the bill from being pigeon holed. "Thi6 is the time to sit down and have a good talk," he continued, describing the third step. "We'd hear the arguments and maybe some changes would be made, but there would be no call for mass demonstrations and pickets." The Bill of Rights itself called for a "clear and pre cise written statement of reg ulations and responsibilities" expected of them, procedural due process and freedom from double jeopardy. It also advocated freedom of students to conduct re search and to publish, discuss and exchange findings and recommendations. Other items included free dom of organizing campus or ganizations, the right to bring "speakers of their choice" to campus and freedom to pub lish without censorship or "a dminstration pres sure aimed at controlling edi torial policy or staff appoint ments and removal." The document also con tained passages pertaining to freedom from the invasion of privacy, participation in off campus activities with out fear of censure and the right to "participate in the policy the University." members to operate effective ly. When the Graduate Col lege showed a lack of inter est toward its student govern ment, the ASUN found it nec essary to allow their seats to be replaced by other deserv ing colleges. "Since the Electoral Com mission and the Student Sen ate stated that the Profes sional College was first de serving, in line with propor tionate students, I was placed in the first vacant seat after the election. I feel that my position is a legal position, and I will uphold my college and mv duties as senator for the ASUN." juiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiu 'Crawling Inflation Grips Students In Price Squeeze By John Fryar Junior Staff Writer Inflation is hitting Universi ty students as they are caught in a multiple squeeze . . . As consumers they are hav ing to pay the rising prices of goods and services. As taxpayers they face pos sible anti-inflationary tax raises. As students they may have to share in increased costs to the University. According to Clemens B. Thoman, Associate Professor of Economics, the nation is advancing, in terms of eco nomists, from "creeping" to "crawling" inflation. He said that rising prices are affect ing the University as well. "I hate to see the source of University funds eating in to the students' pockets," Thoman said. Inflation Explanation Thoman gave a simple ex planation of inflation as be ing rising prices with a low- Go Big Red Rally To Feature Yells, Travel Trophy The first "Go Eig Red" pep rally of the year will begin Friday at 6:13 p.m. at the Carillon tower.

Students Take FM Station By By John Fryar Junior Staff Writer Students are taking a ma jor step to establish an FM station on the University campus by spring of 1967. Articles of incorporation will be filed Monday, for the establishment of an education al corporation to promote a non-profit FM radio station on campus. Sponsored by interested stu dents and faculty, the Univer sity of Nebraska Student Broadcasting Corporation will then apply for an FCC license and begin to raise funds. According to Bob Wilson, chairman of the promoters, the group estimates the ini tial cost at $10,000, and annu al operating costs of $2,500. Fund-Raising "The next big step is fund raising," said Wilson. "The funds for this station will not come from the University, but rather from gifts and grants from interested persons." "This corporation and i t s radio station are designed to provide the students of t h e University of Nebraska with programming especially de signed for a University audi ence," emphasized Larry G. Keating, resident agent of the new corporation. The station would be a 10 watt, single-antenna operation covering both the city and east campuses. Wilson said that he was sure of there being at least one FM receiv er in every living unit. The proposed station has been en d o r s e d by KWHG-FM. KFMQ-FM, and KLIN-FM. Wilson said that program ming would be geared to the s 1 u d e n t body, but that it would not be educational in the classroom sense. Programming Programming would possi bly include rebroadcasts of major campus speeches, cov er purchasing power of the dollar and a high level of spending. He termed the current trend 'cost-push" inflation, with businesses and labor holding the responsibility for raising prices and wages. Thoman said that he didn't think that this inflation was one of "demand-pull," un necessary consumer spend ing. There doesn't seem to be an excess of demand or a shortage of products, he noted. Off-Campus Students Ofl-c a m p u s students have directly noticed increased food prices as they stock apartments. Food prices in recent months have raised the whole Consumer Price Index, Thoman pointed out. As of July 196G food prices had ris en 1.6 per cent since the end of the 1965-66 school year, ac cording to the Consumer Price Index. Rent across the nation rose .1 per cent in the same time period. Professional services show a steady rise on the index Y ? jam f" ( J V ' ' -' ' " !

During the 1963-66 school year Student Action for Gov ernmental Efficiency spon sored a campus FM proposal. The ASUN Cultural Affairs Committee worked with SAGE and presented a study to G. Robert Ross, Vice Chancellor for Student Af fairs. Lack of funds delayed any further action until this new corporation reached the scene. Wilson said that this group was not associated with SAGE. The Nebraska Foundation has created a fund for the new corporation into which donations may flow and plans are now being formulated for a full-scale fund-raising cam paign, Wilson said. Contributions Wilson said that he plans to contact the Alumni Associa ASUN Budget Increases Approved Unanimously Incorporating an increase of $1,100 dollars, the Student Senate unanimously approved W e d n e s d a y the 1966-1967 ASUN budget of $3,600.

Affect Students Commenting on whether these increases affected stu dents, Thoman said, "Cer tainly if they aren't yet, they soon will be." In addition to food and rental increases, text book prices are also on the rise. The federal government proposes to reduce tax credits of businesses, and Thoman said a last-resort measure would be a general tax in crease. Thoman said that install ment credit was also rising in cost, with "people begin ning to go into debt over their heads" Personnel Shortage Thoman said that Universi ty salaries have been keeping up with the rising cost of liv ing, but added that this was partially due to a shortage of qualified personnel. Thoman said that in some cases newspapers incited "in flation fever," and added that background in economics courses. Steps To Have Spring Of 1967 tion and possibly seek student contributions. He said that an annual operating budget would run seven cents per student. Several members of the new group plan to meet with Dean Ross over the feasibil ity of using the Nebraska Un ion for broadcasting facilities. Last year an architectural plan w as submitted to the Nebraska Union, Wilson said, and was "neither approved nor disapproved." The organ ization hopes to contact the Union Board later this month. The corporation has an agreement with the School of Journalism to lease an o I d console and amplifier. Wil son said that these are going to have to be supplemented by completely purchasing the rest of the equipment. After the station begins op eration, hopefully in the spring of 1967, Wilson said that support by the legislature or student fees would be help Awards and Giltt Kurtul ICfarintiuMs Party, Picnic) 4nvernmeDtal Affair Vpnf.ral Offiup EulenM iriennunp orficf Rrfumiahuic Oenrral Fund lotal mi Roger Doerr, first vice president of ASUN, explained that since the Cultural Affairs Committee had been dropped after the printing ol the pro posed budget, the money sot aside for it $75) had been added to the general fund. One of the senators asked how the figures for this year were decided upon. Miss Warren answered that they were formulated by com paring the amounts spent last year and projecting them into the future. In addition she stated that the budget had been approved by the Univer sity administration. Former Sen. Steve Abbott 'Black Power' Advocates May Jeopardize FSNCC Bv Toni Victor Senior Staff Writer Statements by Stokely Car michael, Negro head of the Student Non-violent Coordi nating Committee (SNCC), may effect a re-evaluation of University Friends of SNCC, according to JoEllen Wil liams, president of the cam pus group. In recent weeks, Carml chael has been quoted in na tional news publications as advocating that SNCC should be "black-staffed, black-controlled and black-financed." He maintains that whites can participate on a voluntary ba sis in the organization, but in no way can they participate on a policy-making leveL Working for civil rights and sponsoring community action ful, "but we are not counting on it." Trustee Board Under the articles of incor poration and by-laws, a Board of Trustees would be set up of three corporation mem bers and two students to be elected at large from the campus. This board would select from April applicants for Gen eral Manager, News Direc tor. Traffic Director and Chief Engineer. Recruits may come from the journalism school and speech depart ment, Wilson said. Wilson said that workers were needed for future fund raising as well as suggestions from the students. He asked that mail be sent to the cor poration in care of the Ne braska Union. Keating will be representing the corporation at the Ne braska Broadcasters Asso ciation convention in Norfolk, Nebraska, Sept. 18-20. stated that possibly the Sen ate should look into the fact that the funds for the ASUN budget come from the activi ties fund as approved by the administration. "Since the activities fund comes from the tuition that the students pay," Abbott stated, 4'the voice of the st dents (ASUN) should decide what the activities fund should be spent for." There was some discussion about the mimeograph ma chine, included in tbe budget for the year, which has al ready been purchased. Doerr explained, however, that it was necessary to pur chase it before the budget re ceived ASUN approval, be cause it was needed immedi ately and has already been put into use. projects, national SNCC is one of the major civil rights groups in the country. Lately it has incorporated concepts of black power into its organi zation via a "position paper" written by SNCC leaders. Totally Unrelated Friends of SNCC is a pre dominantly white organiza tion at the University, and is, according to Miss Williams, totally unrelated to SNCC. "Friends of SNCC" is a series of anonymous support groups on Northern cam puses," stated Miss Williams. She noted the University group is related to SNCC only in that the members send fi nancial support to various SNCC projects. In this con nection, Miss Williams noted the raising of funds last year for the SNCC Gulfport Proj ect. Not Selling Out Claiming that the campus group had discussed changing their name and support as early as last May when the Gulfport Project became self sustaining, Miss Williams stated that they were "not just selling out because Car michael made some radical statements." She said that it will be up to tbe group to decide at the next meeting what proj ect to support. Miss Williams said it "would be absurd lo call ourselves Friends of SNCC if we take up a local project." However, the president added, 'The fact that Caral chael has antagonized such a large part of the population will probably affect the mem ber's feelings as to whether we will remain friends of SuMOC."
