Union Officials Question
NFU's Right To Meet
The Free University al

Davor said that one of the

Schulze, chairman of the
Conduct committee, admit
ted that the meeting was
the Free University.
"Then this is not a Uni

Boardman said that a let
ter of intent, the require
ment for "University recog
nition" had not been filed
with the Activities Office
"because of time. We want
ed to set up our courses
before vacation."
Schulze summarized the
exchange later by saying,
"The Union can serve the
student body, but not stu
dents." Boardman and Schulze
were allowed to hold t h e
meeting as planned.
Fifty students and facul
ty members waited for
Boardman and Schulze to
return. Boardman stressed

that the coordinating com
mittee is only going to pro
vide publicity for the
group, and that the long
run success or failure of
the NFU would depend
upon the students.
"We're not trying to du
plicate the University,"
Gene Pokorny stressed. "In
most courses, you sit in a
class and soak up the sub
ject matter. You aren't
asked for a response, or to
discover anything for your
self. NFU will be student
cenetered." A member of the coordi
nating committee said that
classes will be held some
where off-c a m p u s. "We
don't want to use the class
rooms because of the con
ditional response so many
of us h a v e in the class
room." Nearly 20 courses have
been tentatively scheduled,
according to Pokorny.
Boardman asked if anyone
present wanted to suggest

ASUN Committee
Interviews Over
The Student Welfare com
mittee of ASUN is investi
gating the problem of dis
crimination on the Univer
sity campus.
According to Gene Hohen
see, a member of the com
mittee, interviews have
been held with the Negro
girls on the campus to de
termine their feelings on
discrimination on the cam
pus. "Next week the com
mittee plans to begin inter
viewing members of Kappa
Alpha Psi, the Negro frater
nity on the campus."
Hohensee said that the
main problem that the com
mittee has faced so far is
the fear of some of the girls
interviewed that their
names and opinions would
be published. He stressed
however, that any reports
on discrimination will be
done on an anonymous ba
sis. "The problem that we
found came up in the ma
jority of the interviews was
that the girls felt there was
a definite lack of unity
among the Negro students.
In addition, we have found
two opposing views on dis
crimination. Some say they
are discriminated against,
while others say they are
not," he stated.
The committee will con
tinue its interviews after
vacation by contacting for
eign students on problems
they face in the area of discrimination.

Hoover Nominated
For 'Outstanding9
A nomination for Dr.
Floyd Hoover, professor of
secondary education, as
faculty choice for "Out
standing Nebraskan" has
been received citing his
"overwhelming concern for
students both in the class
room and on the campus."
Letters will be accepted
in the Daily Nebraskan of
fice until noon Dec. 14. Two
"Outstanding Nebraskans",
one student and one faculty
member will be named in
the Dec. 16 i s s u e of the
Other nominees include
Polly Rhynalds, Cathie
Shattuck, Gary Larsen and
Dr. Peter Wolfe.
Miss Shattuck received
her fourth letter of nomina
tion Thursday.
Hoover, the letter stated,
has been in academic cir
cles for 36 years "of which
21 of those were at the Uni
versity." He has served as director
of registration and records,
assistant registrar, regis
trar and is now teaching
two education courses.
"His enrollment projec
tections, in the ten years he
was registrar could only be
termed fantastic in their
accuracy," the nomination
said. "And he brought to
the University one of the
Summer School
Cont. From Pg. 1, Col. 7
school program, Sorenson ex
plained. "This interim week is also
important for the large
schools in Omaha and L i n
ccln are not out until a week
after University graduation.
Therefore the teachers and
just-graduated seniors would
have an opportunity to take
part in the summer session,"
he said.
With the eleven week ses
sion, the summer school pro
gram would be concluded the
last Monday in August. The
session would allow a student
to take a total of twelve
hours in one summer, or a
maximum of 6 hours per
'five and a half week ses
sion. "The question that is fore
most in most minds is would
students attend the second
half of the session? On most
campuses where such a pro
gram is utilized, the second
half usually attracts 40 per
cent of the number of s t u
dents that attended the first
session," he emphasized.
If enough students would at
tend the second half of the
session, Sorenson said that
the University would keep
the library, Nebraska Union,
and at least one dormitory
open for student use.
He said the under the pres
most progressive systems
of registration in the coun
try." More imnnrtflnt to manv
i ti
students than the renova
tions he brought to the en
rollment system, the letter
continued, was "his concern
for the University student"
"His classroom is inspir
ing and the personal interest
he shows in the students,
whether, they be in his
classes or not, is phenonic-"
nal" the letter states.
"Those who know Dr. Hoov
er no doubt value the eve
nings spent with him in his
home as some of the most
rewarding moments in their
couege careers.
The letter cites his wil
lingness to help students
with schedule problems
("whether he is their coun
selor or not"), academic
problems and "he has even
been known to give construc
tive actvice when ap
proached with social prob
lems." "Anyone who knows him
will attest to the fact that
he is an outstanding indi
vidual," the letter con
cludes. "And even those
who do not know him can
attest to the fact that he is
an outstanding Nebraskan
all he lacks is the title."
ent program, the Uiiiversity
is encouraging students to at
tend the August session, but
there has not been a large
enough enrollment to have
these facilities open more
than for minimal use.
"The students will have to
help in the decision making
on whether or not to adopt
such a system; would they
be interested in attending the
second half?" he added.
Sorenson noted that the
times are changing, where
once the campus was unbear
able in the summer, now it
is "often more comfortable
than for the student to stay
"The student receives good
food, entertainment, lives in
.air conditioning, and re
ceives an educational chal
lenge. The campus has be
come an island of education
and comfort in the state,"'
Sorenson continued.
"The people will want to
attend summer school and the
University is obligated to
study its calendar to deter
mine if the present approach
is the best one."
"The University has a chal-

facilities, faculty and at the
same time lake care of the
student's interest in the sum
