Spokane, Wash. (I.P.) -The
Academic Council at Gonzaga

norms that will govern de

cording to the Rev. Neil G.
McCluskey, S. J., academic
vice president.
Under a proposal passed by
the Academic Council, no de
partment may require more
than 33 upper and lower divi

and supplementary courses
combined. No depart

24 upper division credits in

However, "Departments

"I am interested in this
type of work, and I believe
in this class of people. Even
though the monetary pay is
small, I always benefited. . .
by giving, I received. It's
something you can really sink
your teeth into to see your

The VISTA workers sum up

Jim Pittenger, athletic tick

"Because of the anticipat
ed heavy demand f or t h e s e
tickets, they will be sold at a
special student sale using the
policies adopted and coordi
nated by the Student Senate
for the Missouri game in
19(55," Pittfinger explained

"This is the first time that
a civic leader has displayed
some initiative in establish

mented. AcaDrding to Doerr, this
appearance by a prominent
individual from Lincoln
could mean that, the Univer
sity is being recognized for
the responsibilities its s t u
dents are assuming.
Doerr stated that Petersen
will probably make a short
presentation, followed by a
period in which he will an

"I hope," continued Doerr,
'that Mayor Petersen will
speak on the University
growth and its impact upon
the city of Lincoln. Along this
line, I expect that he will
touch on areas of concern be
tween the students and city,
such as traffic and parking."
Doerr stated that it will be
interesting to see Petersen's

YMCA Drops Weekend;
Few Freshmen Sign Up
' The fourth annual Fresh
man Weekend sponsored by
the Y,MCA and YWCA has
been cancelled.
Alan Crews, chairman of
the steering committee, said
that the weekend, scheduled
for Sept. 30 through Oct. 2,
had to be cancelled because
of expense.
Crews said the sponsoring
organizations would have suf
fered insurmountable debts
with the small number of peo
ple that had signed up.
Crews said that because of
several failures and unavoid
able circumstances, the com
mittee found it impossible to
acquire the minimum number
of freshman needed to hold
the camp.
One of the major problems
was that the steering com
mittee received the labels
bearing the freshmen's names
and addresses at least six to
"In the event that there are
.less than 2,000 ticket orders
received, all applicants will
receive a ticket. In the case
that there are more than
2,000 orders received, a draw
ing will be held to determine
those students who will re
ceive the tickets," Pettingcr
He added that if they de
sire, the Student Senate may
supervise the drawing.
Sutdents may pick up their
tickets at the Coliseum Tick
et Office beginning Monday,
Oct. 10. Pittenger stated that
if all the orders cannot be
filled, students who do n o t
receive tickets, will be able
to pick up their checks at the
same time.
'Any student who does not
pick up his ticket by Friday,
October 14, will have his or
der cancelled," Pittenger not
ed. He emphasized that since
there are three days set aside
for ticket sales, it makes no
difference If the applicant Is
the first to order tickets, for
as soon as the office has re
ceived the 2,001 st order,
there will automatically be a
drawing to determine who re
ceives tickets.
"We have set aside three
days for ordering so that all
students might have a chance
to order tickets, no matter
what their schedule," Pitten
ger concluded.

was made in the spring.
"I would like to hear wheth

Schaaf's presentation before
the Lincoln City Council went
through the proper chan
nels," Doerr noted. "I am
also interested in finding out
if he wants to see more of
this action in the future."
"Also in this area of foreign
student housing, I am look
ing forward to hearing what
the mayor thinks will happen
in regard to the housing con
ditions facing students,"
Doerr said.
Doerr sees the possibility
of debate on the resolution by
Sen. Pam Wood, which was
tabled last Wednesday, that
the night of Oct. 29 be closed
to all campus activities ex
cept the AUF dance.
"This problem was dis
cussed to a great extent last
year before a decision was
made," he pointed out. "How
ever, I think there is still a
great deal open to question."
The question of AUF's po
sition was never as carefully
analyzed as possible, accord
ing to Doerr. The problem,
as he sees it, is whether AUF
is really unique among cam
pus organizations. It present-

Crews said that by the time
the material reached the
freshman they could not make
the deadline which was
printed on the brochures and
so did not bother to apply.
Even with a number of
additional entries signed up
during the first weeks of
school, the committee felt
that the number was not high
enough to make the program
a complete success.
Crews said that the schedu
ling of Derby Day for the
same weekend had been a
detrimental factor towards
the Freshman Weekend.
"In this case, all greek
pledges are required to at
tend this program, or at least
requested not to be out of
town for the weekend," Crews
Crews said the Freshman
Weekend is not unique to this
campus, for a program of this
type is carried out in many
major colleges, including sev
eral Big Eight and Big Ten
He said that in most cases
the cost for such programs is
higher than the program at
"Until we can convince
freshman how worthwhile this
program is," Crews said,
"and until we can find a
scheduled weekend so as not
to exclude the Greeks, It is
felt that much work would
have to be done to make the
program as successful as it
has been in the past."
All those who have already
signed up for the program
have been notified of the can
cellation and how they can re
ceive a refund.
1DCC Continues
Constitution Talk
Discussion will be continued
on the constitution for a pro

Committee (IDCC) meeting
Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. in the
Abel cafeteria.
Budgetary allotments from

The allotments will be quite
small, he said, one per cent
or less of the dorms' total ac

operating costs of the IDCC.
A dorm workshop to be held
in late October will also be
organized. The workshop will
