In this book Buchwald says
he personally solved most of
the crucial issues of our
times and helped to mold
"The Great Society".
"Lyndon Johnson was a big

serves a great deal of credit
for anything I accomplished."

The AWS senior key system
will not be operational until
the second week in December,
according to Carol Bishchoff,
senior key chairman.
The system was previously
scheduled to become effective
Nov. 1, but the lock company
is behind in the University or
der due to other larger orders
which receive priority, Miss
Bishchoff said.
Gene Klum, a representa
tive of the R. L. White Com
pany, said the second week
in December would be the
earliest possible date his com
pany could install the special
locks in the participating liv
ing units.
Klum added that the living
units which placed their or
ders first would be the first
ones to have a lock installed.
The entire installation process
will require about a month,
Klum said.
The actual installation of
the locks requires only one or
two days, but the coding of
each living unit's keys by the

Is Rescheduled

Speaker Invitation List Revised;
Witches, LSD Proposed Topics
Witches, LSD and New England politics may find a
platform at the University, according to a list of speak
ers and subjects proposed by the Nebraska Union Talks
and Topics Committee.
The new proposed speakers will be invited by the com
mittee to speak some time this year, accordirg to Larry
. Grossman, chairman of Talks and Topics.
The list includes: William Buckley, Dr. Timothy Lea
ry, Carl Oglesby, Professor Staughton Lyad, Major Dav
id Keho and Sybil Leech. A member of the Soviet Em
bassy in Washington, D.C., is also being invited.
"With the exception of Art Buchwald, other currently
slated Talks and Topics speakers are not worth the mon
ey," Grossman stated.
He said that the scheduled speakers are good in their
fields, but that people of more vital" experience would gen
erate more interest in the student body. For this reason,
Grossman has proposed the second list of speakers.
William Buckley is a Republican from New York and
one of the foremost conservatives in America, according
to Grossman. Buckley is a past candidate for mayor of

A report on the present
status of subrosas at the Uni
versity will be presented by
Interfraternity Council (IFC)
President Gary Larsen at 7
p.m. Wednesday night in the
Nebraska Union.
Larsen said that IFC has
been investigating the sub

the report will reveal what

some of the possible rumors.
He explained that the IFC

New Faculty Senate Members
Eleven students were se
lected last week by ASUN, to
fill student vacancies on Fac
ulty Senate committees.
Tuesday afternoon, six of
these individuals were con
tacted by the Daily Nebras
kan on what they viewed their
role on the committees to be.
The committee members
were appointed by Terry
Schaaf, president of, ASUN,
and were approved by t h e
Senate Executive Council.
Schaaf stated that they
were chosen on the basis of
their applications. "Inter
views were not held. I knew
all of the students that ap
plied but one, and I called
this individual and talked
with him."
One appointee, Jim
Schreck, was chosen to serve
on the subcommittee on Stu
dent Organizations. He stated
that he is presently not in a
"good position to answer"
what his role would be.
"I will have to talk to Ter
ry Schaaf first. I am not well
acquainted with the commit
tee presently," Schreck ex
plained. "However, I think the basis
behind having students on
these committees is to devel
op a closer relationship be
tween the faculty and the stu
dents. However, since the
faculty does have a higher
voice, we have to learn how

The meeting Wednes
day night was described by
Larsen as an "educational

He said that it is possible
that subrosas could once
again be a problem on this
campus and that all students

"I don't know any more
about it other than what is
stated in the syllabus explain
ing the Faculty Senate com
mittees. As of yet, there have
been no meetings."
Schulze sees his most im
portant job on the committee
as that of being an improved
committee member. He said
that he understood, in the
past, that the students who
have served on the commit
tees did not carry out their
responsibilities and often did
not attend the meetings.
"I believe the student mem
bers should actively partici
pate in discussions within the
committee," Schulze said. "I
hope that this experience can
enlighten me on how the stu
dent can assume more re
sponsibilities and how the
Faculty Senate works."

Grossman explained that the proposed list of speakers
represents a variety of appeals to political, scholastic and
social circles on campus.
Subrosa's Status
The last major move by
IFC against any type of sub
rosa problem was in 1961. At
that time membership records
and rituals were exposed and
the organizations were be

The youth's companion, a

men were alone when police
officials arrived at the resi

who was called in on the case
by the Lincoln Police Depart

the "first reported use of LSD
on campus."
Both men are being held
concerning the violation of a
federal law which limits the
usage of LSD to laboratory
experiments and psychologi

"Furthermore, the Board of

to express the view of the administration.
