Computer Project Aids Law College Research enrollment in the Univer sity College of Law has nearly doubled in six years, according to Dean Henry M. Grether, Jr. There are 240 students enrolled, in contrast to 138 six years ago. The growth is causing some problems because of lack of staff, the school's new dean said. "This creates a par ticularly difficult problem because small classes are vital to the teaching of law," says Grether. "L a w teaching cannot satisfactor ily be accomplished by the straight lecture method. Legal education is not based on a concept of mem orization of thousands of rules of law. "Instead, law students are trained in a process of deductive thinking, which requires a Socratic method of teaching conducted by questions and answers, ar gument and discussion be tween the professor and students, and between stu dents. "This technique obvious ly becomes unworkable when classes become too large," he said. But despite enrollment problems, the college is moving ahead with a vari-. ety of programs. Among them is the com puter project, directed by Prof. John M. Gradwohl. The University Law College is a pioneer in the use of computerized statutes. All 10 volumes of the Ne braska statutes have been put on magnetic tapes; thus, with proper program ming, the computer will kick out, at 1,200 lines a minute, each occurrence of any word in the statutes, or any group or combination of ' words either affirmatively Senate To Elect 2 To Fill Reapportionment Seats Two senators from the Graduate College will be elected by the Student Sen ate at Wednesday's meet ing, which will be held in the Norfolk Room of the Ne braska Center on East Cam pus. The senators are being elected as a result of the recent Student Court deci sion on the reapportionment carried out by the electoral commission. In the reappor tionment, three unfilled Graduate College seats were given to senators from other colleges. This was de cided by the court not to be according to direct appor tionment as called for in the ASUN consitutlon.

Other uses of magnetic tapes include printing stat utes at a nominal cost, showing historical develop ment of statutes, and work ing with internal statutory references. Another Law College project is the addition of several senior seminars, with about a dozen students in each. Subject matter planned for the seminars in cludes unfair trade com petition, recent U.S. Su preme Court decisions, m e d i c a 1-legal, business planning, air-space 1 a w, electronic data processing, legal history and tax policy. The Law College also plans 12 sessions this school year on proficiency in trial advocacy. Under the chair manship of Lincoln attor ney Charles Noren, the Ne braska Trial Attorneys As sociation will cooperate with the college in re-staging actual cases from se lection of jury to decision before the students. Doctors will help by ap pearing as expert medical witnesses. Bar Association members will donate their time. Students will be di vided into two groups plaintiffs and defendants and will have a chance to question witnesses. "We'll make the trials as realistic as possible," Grether said. Also in the works is a College of Law-School of Journalism project.

David Sen seney that any suit filed in any court involving reap portionment of the senate, must be filed in the semes ter in which the reappor tionment takes place. If the Senate approves this motion, it will insure Mark Schrieber of retain ing his seat on the senate. There has been some ques tion as to whether he should be allowed to retain his seat since there was a mistake in the original apportion ment carried out by the senate last year. The senate will also con sider rules of procedure for their meetings. These rules will be presented by Sen. John G e r 1 a c h , who was chairman of the committee to draw up such a set of rules. Also, a resolution calling for Dead Week to be the week before finals is ex pected to be presented, and the Student Welfare com mittee may report on the progress of its investiga tions.

CONTACT YOUR PLACEMENT OFFICE FOR A CAMPUS INTERVIEW ON: November 16, 1966 A November 17, 1966 3k ALLIS-CHALMERS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER m Group Surveys The ASUN library com mittee will begin on the li brary facilities at Nebraska. The purpose of the sur vey is to inform the cam pus of the library situation at the University. According t o research done by the Library Com mittee, Nebraska is lagging behind other universities in the amount of their library budget by several million dollars. The needed finances have been requested by the Uni versity in its $98.6 million budget proposal. Of this budget, $3.5 million is being asked for the libraries. In the past ten years, the pro portion of the educational budget devoted to library purposes has declined from 3'4 to 2. The new pro posal allots 32 to librar ies. In 1965, the University li braries spent only $21.93 per student for both books and periodicals. This al lowed only two books per student to be purchased. In comparison with 14 Pig 10 and Big 8 schools, Nebraska rates 10th in the number of volumes in the library and twelfth in the number of books purchased per student. Another problem is the amount of time that li braries are open. Nebras ka's libraries are now open for use 90 hours a week. In the 1967-69 biennial budget, it has been proposed that in Mimi Rose, Announced Big Man on Campus, Tom Penney, and Activities Queen, Rlimi Rose were announced at the AUF-Beat Dance Saturday. Penney, a member of Alpha Tau Omega frater nity, was selected from a group of " ten finalists by popular vote of the students attending the dance. Miss Rose, Pi Beta Phi sorority, was chosen from a group of seven finalists by an interviewing board. Over a 1.000 tickets were sold to the dance, Linda Mahoney, AUF publicity vice-president said. The dance kicked-off the annual AUF drive to solicit funds from University stu dents and faculty members for five national charities. the 1967 fall semester, the libraries be kept open until 11 p.m. seven nights a week. The space available for reading and for book stor age is another problem that is being considered. The seating capacity of the li braries on this campus is about 10 of the student body. This is below the mini mum standard in most uni versity libraries of 20 seating capacity. According to John Wink worth, chairman of the ASUN committee, question aires will be distributed to students in the libraries on both campuses Monday through Saturday. These questionaires will be short answer, and will take very little time to fill out. By this method, the committee will gain the opinions of those people who actually use the library. A leadership opinion poll is also being taken by the committee. A group of campus leaders has been se lected and asked for ideas and opinions on the prob lems of the library system. The information received from these surveys will be incorporated into the li brary committee's report. The committee is also corresponding with state senators until the University budget comes up in the spring. They will explain the problems of our library system and the need for increased funds. Tom Penney At AUF-Beat AUF representatives will solicit money from mem bers of the campus living units and sorority and fra ternity pledge classes will cover the T incoln area Nov. 20, Miss Mahoney said. The drive will continue until Thanksgiving vaca tion, Nov. 22.

He stressed that he tried to take the attitude into consid eration that the congregation inside a University chapel is an educated group and there fore he attempts to use an educated format in planning sermons and make use of the students' willingness to learn. Since a service is primarily for the purpose of worship, he added, it is not necessary to connect the service with the University as such. 'Unafraid Of Humor' The Rev. Mr. William Phil lips of the United Campus Christian Fellowship emphas ised in his sermon Sunday the importance of the indivi dual in Christianity. He said that without sincerity on the part of the individual, any at tempts made by the minister and church to reach a true faith are in vain. One .student who attended the service described its at mosphere as "relaxed and unafraid of humor."

He relates his sermons to things which I can under- -stand, and this makes me think more about the things about which he speaks." Rev. Petersen explained that he tries to relate his ser mons to the student, not so much by picking a specific event and preaching about it, but rather "by dealing in a general way with the prob lems of student life." .
