AUF Motion Vetoed
After Two Tie Votes
Action at the Student Sen
ate meeting Wednesday cen
tered around three motions
dealing with an AUF request
to limit activities on Oct. 29;
the setting of a date to re
turn to school after Christ
mas; and an investigation
about a new grading scale.
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

motion. Schulze's motion
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

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

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
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.

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
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
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

Dr. Jame's Roberts.

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

from the audience concern

were subpoenaed in connec

Concerning marijuana, bar

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

No Plan
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,
Petersen's statement was
in response to a question on
traffic asked during his ap
pearance before the Student
"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."

A decision is expected
Thursday evening on wheth

commission acted correctly
in reapportioning a Student
Senate seat last spring.
David Senseney, a Senator
from the Professional C o 1

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.
In answer to aquestion con
cerning the proposed Univer
sity budget, Petersen stated
that "the University is the

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

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

When asked why, when a
student breaks a Lincoln or

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.

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
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
Porter said that "although
the students may want and
the calendar committee rec

has a good chance of being
voted down by the Faculty
Senate because of objections
raised last time this problem
was brought up."

Hyde Park will be very
similar to last year, Miss Dal

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
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."

learn and the reduction of the
school term will only result
