The motion, made last week by Sen. Pam Wood, con cerning AUF asked the Sen ate to request that no campus organizations hold any activi ties on Oct. 29, the night of the AUF dance. Roger Doerr, ASUN vice president, explained that this would mainly discourage liv ing units from holding a par ty on that evening. Following some debate on the proposal, a vote was tak en which ended in a tie. Doerr as presiding officer, voted in favor of the motionJireaking the tie. Sen. Dick Schulze then made a motion that the sen ate reconsider the previous motion. Schulze's motion passed. After further reconsidera tion of the problem, another vote was taken, again ending in a tie. Again Doerr voted in favor of the motion. The meeting was then ad J o u r n e d for two minutes. When the meeting reopened, Doerr announced that Terry Schaaf, ASUN president, had vetoed the motion according to the power granted him by the constitution. Schaaf then explained that since a clear majority could not be obtained concerning JIIIIIIMIIlIf llllIItUlltlllllIlfilI11llllltlilllllil9(MI!ljirt I Drugs In INo Real By Toni Victor Senior Staff Writer Lincoln has no real problem with addictive or non-addictive drugs at present, said Lt. Gail Gade of the city po lice department at a p a n e 1 discussion of non-addictive drugs. The panel discussion Wednesday was sponsored by the East Union as part of their Lounge Series. Panelists included Mrs. Donald Grant, clinical psy chologist at the University Health Center; Dr. K. D. Rose, staff physician at the Student Health Center; and Gade of the juvenile office at the Lincoln Police Station. Isolated Cases Gade summarized the drug situation in Lincoln by saying that there have been isolated cases in the past involving possession of drugs. "Once in a while we hear rumors from the University campus concerning drugs," said Gade. He cited an example of a boy who was picked up by campus police officials re cently. Gade said that the boy appeared to be under the influence of something other than alcohol. Campus police turned the boy over to his dormitory head and the case went no further. "LSD is as close as t h e University of Kansas and it is probable that it has ar rived here," Gade explained. is greeted by ASUN Pres Schaaf. the resolution, he had chosen to veto the motion. In order to override the veto, two-thirds of the Senate must vote against the veto next week. The second proposal, pre sented by Miss Wood, asked that ASUN go on record start ing that Tuesday, Jan. 3, 1967, be the first day of classes for the University following Christmas vacation. Miss Wood stated that she had understood, from a re liable source, that if the Stu dent Senate would come out in favor of the motion, it would have "a good chance of getting on the University calendar." After some discussion on the proposal, a vote was tak en and the motion passed. Sen. John Gerlach then pro posed that the Senate instruct the Academic Research Com mittee to look into the pos sibility of a one-half-point grade" scale and report to the senate in two weeks. "This would allow the pro fessors to give an A plus, B plus, etc. When converted to numerical grades, they would be 4.5, 3.5, and so on," Ger lach explained. The motion passed. The senate also approved the requirements for H o m e coming Queen drawn up by the electoral commission. It was announced that the inter viewing board, for candidates, would be composed of Joan McClymont, Ron Pfiefer, Karen Westerberg, Jerry Ol son, and, a faculty member, Dr. Jame's Roberts. IIIIinMItlIlllIll!ll)Itl!!ITlIlillllirilltIIIIillIlllf IIMI Lincoln: Problem According to Gade, there has not been a single case involving LSD in the city. "We are not naive enough to assume that no one has used it on campus, however," noted Dr. Rose, from Student Health. Rose answereda question from the audience concern ing the reaction of the Stu dent Health Center if a stu dent was admitted after a "bad trip" with LSD. "There would be no com munication between us a n d the law, unfortunately, and nothing would be reported to Administration, unless we were subpoenaed in connec tion with a crime committed by the patient," stated Rose. Non-Addictive? Concerning marijuana, bar bituates and peyote, Rose said in his opinion, "there is no such thing as. a non-addictive drug." Though these drugs usually leave no physical disturbance upon withdrawal, Rose noted that there is always a men tal dependence upon the so called "non-addictive" drugs. This idea of non-addiction, Rose said, leads to the fal lacy that "if I'm not depen dent, it's all right." A d e sire to experience something new, and a long ing to be part of a group, are the two most common reasons given by college stu- Cont. on Pg. 5, Col. 7. No Plan Responds By Randy Irey Senior Staff Writer There has been a concur rence of opinion between the city and the University that 14th Street should be closed so that it will not run through the campus, stated Dean Pet ersen, Mayor of Lincoln, Wednesday. Petersen's statement was in response to a question on traffic asked during his ap pearance before the Student Senate. "As yet, no definite plans have been developed, because this action depends on several related projects and problems which first must be straight ened out," the Mayor ex plained. Before answering questions from the senators, Petersen made a brief presentation. He stated that his purpose in coming before the Student Senate was that they might "visit with you about our mutual problems."

"The group I was associated with during college was not a sub rosa," he emphasized, "It wasn't undercover and was simply called 'the Fac tion'." Tiemann, in a speech be- Court Will Judge Senate Seat Case A decision is expected Thursday evening on wheth er or not the ASUN electoral commission acted correctly in reapportioning a Student Senate seat last spring. David Senseney, a Senator from the Professional C o 1 lege, has declared that Bill Tooley, also a senator from the Professional College, un justly received a seat through the reorganization. The case will be presented before the Student Court at 8 p.m. Yet On 14th Street, Mayor Petersen disappearing if you just sit down and talk around a table about them," Petersen said. "I have always stressed the importance of keeping the lines of c.munication open between various groups." One of the problems touched upon by the Mayor was that of low cost housing. He said that there is a resolution on the Nobembcr ballot asking that the Lincoln Housing Au thority be given the power to provide low cost housing, of decent standards, for those who are presently forced, to live in sub-standard housing. Also concerning housing, Petersen stated that there is a minimum housing standards bill before the City Council. "It is essential that no one be forced to live in hous ing that is not of a decent standard," Petersen declared.

Dr. Baldwin Directs Dr. Joseph Baldwin, who just returned from a year's fore the University YR's last week, had jokingly referred to membership in a group which "fixed campus elec tions." A letter to the e d i t o r in Wednesday's Nebraskan con cerned this remark. "The Faction was simply a good exercise in campus poli tics," Tiemann explained, "and was composed of both Greek and Independent lead ers interested in bringing out . people to vote." He continued that the group was an off-shoot of the influx of World War II veterens who returned to the University in the late 1940's and were in terested in campus politics. "Sub rosas should not exist on campus," he stressed, "nor should any group not recog nized by the Administration and faculty." He added that the incident was "just another time when a supposedly liumerous re mark has gotten me in trouble." Elections such as Homecom ing queen and ROTC queen were elections that "the Fac tion" were active in, he said. Traffic Routes major industry in the city of Lincoln." "I believe, personally, that we have been short-changing the future generations by not providing the best education obtainable. Therefore, I am very much in favor of an in crease in the budget," he stated. When asked why, when a student breaks a Lincoln or dinance, this is reported to the University, Petersen an swered that reporting was a procedure developed over a long period of time. "This process is presently carried on with other organ izations in the city, and, until recently, with the air base. Most likely the reporting to the University is done at the request of the University," Petersen concluded.

Soapboxers Move Outside For Hyde Park's Opener Hyde Park, the soap-box forum of free speech, will be gin its second year on campus Thursday at 3:30 p.m. accord ing to Larry Grossman, chair man of Talks and Topics com mittee. The forum will be held on the south steps of the Nebras ka Union instead of in the lounge if the weather per mits, he said. Any student or faculty member is invited to sign up to speak for ten minutes on any subject, said Pam Dal- HANDSHAKE ... for Senator Liz Aitken, while visiting with Andrea Warren and Schaaf. Porter Urges Increase In Christmas Vacation A recommendation that Christmas vacation be extend ed one additional day will be presented to the Faculty Sen ate by James G. Porter, chairman of the calendar committee. It is the responsibility of the calendar committee to propose to the Faculty Sen ate the possibility of resched uling the days on which class es will be held. Porter said that he would make the recommendation because he felt that the ne cessity of students having to travel on the New Year's Day holiday was taking too much of a risk of possible acci dents. Presently the Christmas holiday is scheduled from noon Saturday, Dec. 21, to Monday, Jan. 2. The proposed extension would mean that the holiday would end on Tuesday, Jan. 3. Porter said that he would make a poll of calendar com mittee members before reach ing a final decision, but felt that most of the committee probably would agree with him. Porter said that "although the students may want and the calendar committee rec ommendsa one-day exten sion of the holiday period, it has a good chance of being voted down by the Faculty Senate because of objections raised last time this problem was brought up." He said the main objection ling, assistant chairman of Talks and Topics. Members of the committee will sign up and time speakers. Hyde Park will be very similar to last year, Miss Dal ling said. Any one may ques tion the speaker at any time and audience participation is encouraged, she added. "We want to interest the average student, to get him to stop, listen and think," Miss Dalling said. She em phasized the importance of free exchange of ideas on at that time was that the ex tension of the holiday period would reduce the amount of class time before the final exams and that many of the faculty members felt that this period was already too short. Porter said that the possi bility of a bowl game for the football team would probably have little influence with the Faculty Senate's decisions, because many of the mem bers feel that bowl games are becoming "an annual af fair." Dr. Floyd Hoover, former registrar who was on the cal endar committee when the present calendar schedule was passed, said that in the past, holiday periods ran from a mid-week to another mid-week. He said that the faculty was against this because they felt many students failed to at-, tend classes which were scheduled for the half week. Hoover said the proposal that the holiday period be set back one week would present the problem of students hav ing to get home only one day before Christmas. He said. "Students and fac ulty should remember that if the holiday period is extend ed that this will only result in one day being cut from the school term." "Students come to school to learn and the reduction of the school term will only result in a shortened teaching per iod," Hoover said. current issues as a means of getting the student to form his own opinions. Talks and Topics initiated Hyde Park last year modeled after the free speech forum found In London's Hyde Park w here speakers stand on soap boxes and talk on any sub ject. Rich Scott, Nebraska Union program director, said last year's Hyde Park was very successful and that it since has spread to other Big Eight campuses.
