"For AWS, the girls could make their own policies and rules, with Helen Snyder, Dean of women, still serving in an advisory capacity with a veto. However, if AWS Friday, November 18, ONLY ... 180 students and faculty members donated blood to the Red Cross during its campus drive Thursday, instead of the anticipated 200 donors. lood Donated R ed Cross Short By Lynn Ptacek Junior Staff Writer Approximately 180 stu dents and faculty donated blood at the Red Cross Blood Mobile in the Nebraska Union Thursday. According to David Carl bom, assistant manager of the Lincoln Red Cross, many students that had scheduled appointments to donate blood did not keep them. However, ome students donated who did not have appointments. The Red Cross bad antici pated 200 pints of blood, so the drive was short of its goaL Carlbom said. Most of the donors were students, but some faculty members did contribute, he said. Students were required to be 21 years old, or have written parental permission to donate. Carlbom said tiat this could have been a factor in decreasing student re sponse to the blood mobile. Last year the government had a contract with the Na tional Red Cross to draw blood with the purpose of get Four Compared ... ill Of A bill of rights stales its purpose for existance in its preamble. In comparing the bill of rights of the University of Missouri, the University of Chicago, the statement of the Nebraska Student Govern ment Association, and that of PACT, a political party at the University, a place to be gin is with their purposes. In the preamble of the bill of rights from Missouri, the purpose for the bill is "to in sure the continuation of mu tual accommodation among students, faculty and the ad ministration" by providing a statement of principles. The University of Chicago developed a bill of rights "in order to preserve and to guar antee to the student those conditions indispensible to the full achievement of the objec tives of higher education in a free democratic society." The rights stated are "es sential to the complete de velopment of the student as an individual and to the ful fillment of his responsibilities Proposes Court chose to, they could appeal this veto to the proposed court," Schaaf explained. He said that, therefore, AWS would not be stymied in its policy-making decisions when they are disapproved by Dean Snyder. If the board chose to, it could go to a higher power, which would represent the three areas within the University com munity. The court would be c o m posed of nine members, three representing each pf three areas administration, fac ulty and students. The facul 1966 ting blood derivatives to be used by the military. Enough blood derivatives were re ceived last year, that it was not necessary to continue the program his year. The blood from this year's mobile will be sent to the re gional center in Omaha where it will be tested and then distributed to Red Cross participants in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri. There are 56 Red Cross cen ters in the United States. Blood can be exchanged between the Red Cross s t a tions throughout the United Staes depending on supply and need. The Red Cross blood ccn er in Omaha agrees with each person who gives blood to supply the donor or any member of his immediate family with any needed blood for a one year period. Donors can also specifical ly direct their donations to replace blood used by family or friends. The Red Cross also has a reciprocity plan with the American Association of EJood Banks. This is a cen Rights Preamble States as a citizen of that society." PACT, in its bill of rights says "the ultimate goal of any bill of rights for the students is the full realization of that student's potential." The preamble continues in saying that the development of the student's potential "re quires the creation of an at mosphere in which the stu dents can experience the to tal educational opportunities inside the classroom and in the social and cultural envir onment o u t s i d e the class room." The XSGA makes a state ment of student rights it be lieves "essential to the com plete development of the stu dent as an individual and to the fulfillment of his respon sibilities as a citizen of that society." Each of the statements in clude an article dealing with the right for any student to be admitted to the school without consideration of. reli gion, color, race or national origin. All the statements include a provision stating the right ty delegation would be chosen by the Faculty Senate and would include one member with a law degree.

Students and faculty who donated blood were given a hemoglobin test, and their medical history was checked to see if it was safe for them to contribute. A physician was on band to check the donors if there was any doubt about their health. After giving blood, donors were served coffee or orange juice and cookies, and were required to rest 15 minutes before leaving. Red Cross staff nurses and student volunteers were on hand to assist with the drive. Carlbom said that this was a student project to aid blood sysems throughout the Unit ed States. He said that the program depended on a good cross section of blood types, and that any type was ac cepted. students who gave blood will receive a card from the regional Red Cross center giving their blood type, and a recording of their donation. of students and their organi zations to invite and hear speakers of their choice on subjects of their choice. The statements also agree on the right of students and student organizations to print and distribute publications free of any censorship of news policies or editorials. The Missouri bill of rights, however, includes a statement that the publishers of the publication must meet ap proval by the Committee on Student Publications. The Chicago statement in cludes a clause which states "in cases, however, where a publication enjoys a monopoly of University facilities and fi nances, the recognizing au thority may properly insist on adequate safeguards in the constitution of the publication to insure that the require ments for membership be li mited to interest, activity, and journalistic ability." The Missouri bill of rights is the only one that docs not have a provision stating the right to conduct research freely and publish, discuss, 1 To Formalize staggered so that each vear there will be two holdovers each year from each of the two branches. "Concerning ASUN use of the court," Schaaf stated, "the court would be the final location for determining the legality of student organiza tions." Presently, an ASUN c o m mittee reviews organization's constitutions and presents them to the Student Senate for its approval. Following this, the constitutions go to the Faculty Senate Subcom mittee on Student Organiza The Daily Nebraskan Advisory Board Could Change Arts And Science Requirements By Diane Theisen The newly proposed Stu dent Advisory Board of the Arts and Sciences College could, according to Mel Sch lachter ASUN Advisory Board Coordinating chairman, work to change college require ments and add new courses to the curriculum. Arts and Science students will vote Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 on the newly proposed con stitution for the Student Ad visory Board of the College. If passed, the constitution will provide for the establish ment of a new Student Board aimed at promoting student academic responsibility with in the college. According to the present constitution, the Board con sists cf the ASUN senators from Arts and Sciences, Dean Militzer and Dean Hough. The new Board would con sist of a representative from the six area divisions within the college, two "holdover" members from the previous Scrip Sells Old Issues To Pay Past Debls Interest in the campus liter ary magazine Scrip has def initely increased within the last week, according to Frank McClanahan, editor. Scrip which was in a fi nancial predicament, has par tially solved its money prob lems, because of the pick up in sales of last year's issues. Supported by the Owen Stepanek Fund which pro motes creative writing, Scrip receives some $200 a year to publish creative works of Uni versity students. Problems occurred as this year's staff had to make par tial payment on a debt in curred in last year's produc tion. McClanahan also aims to in crease the quality of the mag azine changing it from mimeograph to print to pro vide artistic versatility. This necessitated a need for addi and exchange findings or rec ommendations. The ri;'ht of students to a clear and concise statement of their contractual rights, obligations, and responsibili ties to the institution is grant ed in all the statements ex cept for the Missouri state ment. The PACT bill of rights in cludes statements freeing the student from double jeo pardy, one granting substan tive and procedural due pro cess, and leaving the deci sion of whether or not an or ganization wants a faculty ad visor up to the organization, which are no), included in the other three statements. The Chicago University bill of rights includes a provision giving "the right, without penalty, of students employed by the University to join or to form unions and enter into collective bargaining." , The right of students to participate in the administra tive process by means of faculty-senate committees is granted by the bill of rights from UlLbnumi University. tions for final approval. As Schaaf sees it. this dup lication of efforts would eith er be eliminated, or a com mittee of both students and faculty members would judge the constitutions before pre senting them to the Student Senate. The office of Student Affairs could still veto the constitutions, but with the FSA court, the Student Senate could appeal to this body. In some cases, the appeal could go all the way to the Board of Regents. "The Student Tribunal pres ently serves as an adviser to year and one senator from Arts and Sciences. The proposed Board, ac cording to ASUN Sen. Nesha Neumeister, would serve as a liaison between faculty and students and would help to solve problems within the col lege. She added that it would be especially effective because the representatives them selves will know about the needs of students and the col lege because they would have the knowledge from being in their own departments. Schlachter described the constitution as "the fulfil ment of ideals" set up in a recent ASUN bill defining the position and the purpose of student advisory boards. According to a member of the present Board, the pro posed Student Advisory Board will serve as model for ad visory boards in other col leges. Schlachter explained that the Board will provide for tional funds, according to Mc Clanahan. "U'e have access to no other money and it doesn't look likely that we'll get more iunds from the University as such," said McClanahan. However, the editor noted that "things are looking much better" as sales of old issues of Scrip and the unreleased spring issue of last year con tinue to grow. "The spring issue is'selling very well and we should be in good shape to put out a mime ographed copy of Scrip in early December," stated Mc Clanahan. Though still admitting that Scrip will have some prob lems producing the planned printed issue next semester, McClanahan said that his staff will be canvassing the area for ads and asking for money contributions. Purpose PACT has a provision, not included in the other state ments, saying "all students have the right to establish and participate in a demo cratic student government with the final power authority to formulate, legislate, and adjudicate all rules and regu lations pertaining to student life outside the classroom, with the single provision that those rules and regulations be consistent with local, state and federal laws, and t h e United States Constitution." The remainder of the bill of rights seem to agree on the rights granted to student or ganizations and the creation of them. They also agree on the remainder of the provi sions, though there are minor variations from ' school to school. The Student Conduct com mittee, under the chairman ship of Dick Schulze, is pre sently preparing a rough draft of a bill of rights for the stu dents of the University. The first copy will be completed Sunday afternoon. Appeal the Dean of Student Affairs," Schaaf explained, concerning another area the court would affect. "Thp tribunal recom mends what aciicn should be taken in cases of student dis ciplinary action." "With the addition of t h e FSA court, the student could request to appeal to the FSA court. This would eliminate the present appeal to the Faculty Senate Committee on Suspension," he stressed. Schaaf explained that he proposed the FSA court be cause he believes a new sys tem is needed. "I am n o t "student responsibility and involvement in educational planning". Students can use the Board to effect changes in programs and require ments. They can help estab lish new courses and inves tigate present curriculum. He said the Board will be come a part of the "total ed ucation" of a student because students will become involved in working with faculty and administration in coordinat ing and planing their educa tional programs. "The Board is a means to an end, that of students help ing to plan curriculum." he added, "and the Board will be successful only if students show interest and participate." FM Station Seeks Endorsing Letters Preparing to speak to the Board of Regents in Decem ber, the University Student Broadcasting Corporation is receiving letters of endorse ment for a campus FM sta tion. According to UNSBC chair man Bob Wilson, letters of student support have been received from Young Repub licans. Builders. Triangle Fraternity, Love Memorial Hall. Student Religious Liber als, RAM Council, Tau Rho, Weslev Foundation. Cather Hall Executive Council. PACT and several houses of Selleck, Pound and Sandoz. Wilson said that reactions have been "extremelv favor able." Public relations chief Dick Sherman said, "Any other student organization wanting more information about the station should send us a brief note at the Nebraska Union." iiiiiiitititiirif(Mif:fiiiiiififMfiiri!fiffiii(fff:tjMiitiiiiirfiifif)iffirffitti.-ijitfiiiitiiiiiiiiiii'i;Mf"ri:iL I Pianist In Concert I r V7 Virtuoso pianist Ivan Davis will perform at the Fall Orchestra Concert Sunday in the Nebraska Union ballroom.

"There is no reason why the Dean of Student Affairs should have the final judg ment concerning parking ap peals. The same is true with a student being expelled from school," Schaaf declared. "In addition, another prob lem in the present system u Cont. On Pg. 4, Col. 3 Vol. 90, No. 38' "Many students sit in a class and don't bother to ever criticize or comment on their instructors and courses. They will have the means to do this effectively through the Board." Schlachter added that be feels that the upcoming elec tion will serve as an indica tion of "how much and how many students are willing to commit themselves to bring about educational excellence. "If the constitution is rati fied in the election, the ASUN Advisory Board .Committee will immediately conduct in terviews for an interim board that will function until fch e spring election when board members will be elected," he said. In addition, stations on oth er campuses have been con tacted for additional informa tion. W ilson said that a letter will be sent to the Nebraska Broadcasters Association to clarify the non-commercial, non-competetive nature of the station. The NBA had passed a res olution asking that state ed ucational institutions not sup port the establishment of campus radio stations. In December the group will seek Regents approval in or der to incorporate and begin raising necessary funds. Wilson said that he hoped additional organizations would consider writing a formal endorsement before this time, and UNSBC mem bers were willing to speak to campus groups about the proposed station. the orchestra of Chicago, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth.
