Approximately 180 stu

blood at the Red Cross Blood
Mobile in the Nebraska Union
According to David Carl

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

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

PACT, a political party at
the University, a place to be

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

conditions indispensible to the
full achievement of the objec
tives of higher education in
a free democratic society."
The rights stated are "es

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

blood derivatives were re

not necessary to continue the

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

replace blood used by family
or friends.

according to Carlbom.
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

The statements also agree
on the right of students and

free of any censorship of news

The Missouri bill of rights,
however, includes a statement
that the publishers of the
publication must meet ap

The Chicago statement in
cludes a clause which states

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

from Arts and Sciences, Dean
Militzer and Dean Hough.

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

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.
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

Schaaf explained, concerning
another area the court would
affect. "Thp tribunal recom

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

the Board to effect changes
in programs and require

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

added, "and the Board will
be successful only if students
show interest and participate."
