Set For
Governor Frank Morrison's
hearing for the University's
1967-69 budget request has
been set for Wednesday, Dec.
7. '
Governor-elect Norbert Tie
mann said Tuesday that he
will attend the hearings,
which are open to the public.
Tiemann has sent representa
tives to most of the other
state agency budget hearings
which began Nov. 15.
The governor's budget
hearings are held to give the
chief executive an opportun
ity to go over the state budg
et requests in detail before
compiling an executive budg
et to be presented to the Leg
islature. Nebraska law also requires
the governor-elect to make
executive budget recommen
dations. The University submitted
an operational biennial budg
et request of $98.6 million to
the Legislature Sept. 15 and a
capital construction budget
request of $32.6 million a
month later. f
The operational budget re
quest anticipates $67 million
in state tax money, and the
construction funds requested
include $24.1 million in state
The remaining funds for
operational budget will come
from tuition and other Uni
versity sources and the con
struction funds from federal
matching grants.
Chancellor Clifford Hardin
and Vice Chancellor Joseph
Soshnik will definitely attend
the hearings, according to
George Round, director of
University Public Relations.
Round said some members
of the Board of Regents may
attend and noted that other
administrative officials will
AWS Submits Plan
For Fall Convention
A plan for organizing the
AWS constitutional conven
tion to be held next fall was
introduced before the AWS
Board Tuesday by Pam
Hedgecock, AWS president.
The convention plans were
proposed at a meeting held
Nov. 11 at which Miss Hedge
cock; Miss Helen Snyder, As
sociate Dean of Student Af
fairs; Candy May, constitu
tion chairman and other AWS
board members were present. -
A chairman for the conven
tion will be appointed by the
AWS president with the ap
proval of the AWS Board next
semester, Miss Hedgecock
The chairman will be se
lected in advance of the con
vention so she may plan the
convention agenda and coor
dinate the information re
ceived from other universi
ties concerning their AWS
system, Miss Hedgecock said.
AWS is initiating correspon
dence with several Univer
sities to gather information
about their AWS systems.
The convention will consist
of 35-40 delegates. Any Uni
versity woman may apply to
be a delegate to the conven
tion, Miss Hedgecock said.
The delegates will be se
1 e c t e d by an Interviewing
board comprised of a facul
ty member, an Administra
tion representative, an ASUN
senator, the constitutional
convention chairman and the
AWS president.
Miss Hedgecock stressed

ASUN vice president Roger

tion of who will attend as of

The ASUN Legislative Lia
ison Committee will send rep
resentatives Marv A 1 m y,
Curt Bromm and Phil Bowen.
Bromm said no specific pre
sentation is planned by the
students, but "If the occasion
arises we probably will
speak." Bromm said other
members of the liaison com
mittee may attend the hear
ings. "I hope some of our stu
dent senators will be there,"
Bromm said.
George Bastian, secretary
for the University Alumni
Association, said the group
has no organized plan for
sending representatives to
the governor's hearings.
"I know the Alumni Asso
ciation Board of Directors is
vitally interested in attend
ing and will speak up." Bas
tian said.
In his three terms in office,
Morrison has cut University
budget requests in preparing
the executive budget and the
Legislature has knocked the
request seven lower.
After Morrison's and Tie
mann's recommendations go
to the Legislature, the Leg
islative Budget Committee
will also hold detailed hear
ings on agencies' budget re
quests and report its recom
mendations to the floor
where the budget appropria
tions may again be altered
before the final vote.
Here is how Morrison and
the Legislature have handled
the past three University
budget requests:

Selection of the delegates
will be made next fall, Miss
Hedgecock said, and the con
vention will convene shortly
after the delegates are or
ganized. The method for naming the
convention delegates was pat
terned after the ASUN Con
stitutional Convention held in
1964. However, the ASUN
delegates applied for their po
sitions through their xesrec
tive colleges and were se
lected by the deans of the
colleges, Miss Hedgecock ex
plained. Several other aspects of the
constitution follow the organ
ization of the ASUN consti
tutional convention, Miss
Hedgecock said.
One of these will include
the formation of study groups
by the delegates to discuss
different areas of the consti
tution such as structure, pur
poses and representatives
outside of the constitutional
convention meetings.
Miss Hedgecock added that
35-40 delegates will be se
lected because this number
"is large enough to enable
the delegates to breakup into
study groups yet small
enough so the group can ar
rive at some sort of conce
sus." The AWS Board will func
tion concurrently with the
convention Miss Hedgecock
said, but will operate under
the present AWS constitution.

Between now and Christmas vacation, heavy snow
storms are forecast in the mountains, and hopefully, snow
will be packed on the slopes.
Skiers are looking forward with excitement to the
Christmas holidays when they will make their first runs.
By that time snow reports should be good and most ski
areas in Colorado and Wyoming will be open.
Only three ski areas in Colorado were open during the
Thanksgiving weekend and skiing was confined to the upper

ginal base. Vail reported eight inches of snow on the upper
slopes and had one poma lift operating.
Aspen Highlands reported marginal bases above 9,000
feet and had four lifts operating.
Arapahoe Basin has been open since Nov. 11. Its alti
tude is 10,500 feet at the base and 12,800 feet at the top lift.
It was the earliest to open because it is a couple thousand
feet higher than most other ski areas.

Schreiber Loses Seat;
Defense Defeats Itself
The Student Court an
nounced in a decision read
Tuesday that Mark Schreiber
should be removed from h I s
seat on the Student Senate.
Schreiber's counsel claimed
that the disparity (the differ
ence between the number of
students that a senator repre
sents in each college) would
be greater in the course re
quested by ASUN, the plain
tiff, in comparison to the pres
ent situation as it stands.
However, the court, in us
ing the theory of disparity,
found a better method to
make the disparity even less.
The ASUN course would have
taken the seat held by Schrei
ber and given it to Graduate
This, as the defense argued,
would change the disparity
among the colleges from 176
(presently) to 183, and would
make the problem worse.
The court came up with the
solution of giving Schreiber's
seat to Graduate College, and
giving a seat presently be
longing to Teachers College
to Professional College. In
this manner the disparity
among the representation in
the colleges would be less
ened to 153.

Rights Bill
Vote Set For
This Spring
By Randy Irey
Senior Staff Writer
Students will probably vote
on the proposed Student Bill
of Rights in the spring, ac
cording to Dick Schulze,
chairman of the Student Con
duct committee which com
pleted a rough draft of the
bill Nov. 20.
Depending on the action,
taken by the Student Senate,
the students could be voting
on the bill April 12, the ten
tative date for the ASUN
Schulze said that plans call
for the Bill of Rights to be
presented to the Senate in the
form of amendments to the
ASUN constitution. If it is
done in this manner, the
amendments must be voted
upon by the students in order
to be ratified.
He said that the immedi
ate job of the committee is
to educate the student body,
the faculty and the admini
stration in understanding the
Schulze said that future
plans for the committee call
for members to go to var
ious living units and discuss
the bill with them. The mem
bers will be seeking the stu
dents' observations and cri
ticisms in addition to explain
ing their positions in writing
the bill.
In the area of the faculty
and administration, Schulze
said that he hopes to discuss
the bill this week with G.

Undergrad Registration

' Registration forms for sec

junior students with 53 to 88
credit hours are due Wednes
day. Registration worksheets
from sophomores with 27 to
52 hours are due Dec. 5, and
worksheets from freshmen

Worksheets from seniors

At a recent ASUN meeting,
Lee W. Chatfield, Associate
Dean of Student Affairs, dis
cussed the plausibility of as
sessing a $10 late fee to all
late registrations.
The registrar's office has a
managerial problem with
people who don't do things on
time, Chatfield said.
H a late fee were charged,
people would be prompted to
do things on time, he said,
and the fee would pay for the
extra clerical work which is
involved when registrations
