Friday, December 9, 1966 The Daily Nebraskan Page 3 Union Officials Question NFU's Right To Meet The Free University al most failed to get off t h e ground at its initial meet ing Thursday night. Shortly before the begin ning of the meeting a spokesman for the Nebras ka Union called Phil Board man and Dick Schulze out of the assembly to question the credentials of the Free University. He had taken down sev eral posters announcing the Free University meeting in the Student Conduct com mittee room. The commit tee which originated the NFU had not billed t h e meeting as a Free Univer sity meeting, but as a Stu dent Conduct committee meeting, according to t h e Union spokesman. The Union representative asked, "Are you ASUN or Nebraska Free Universi ty?" DAVOR ... Americans "insist on explaining, when no explanation is possible. Davor; Science, Culture 'Unity' Hope Expressed A fervent hope that "the science of America and the culture of India" can unite was expressed by Ashok Davor, an exchange student from India at a People-to-People meeting Thursday. Davor said that one of the first traits in the American character he noticed was the American tendency to "believe only what you can see." Friday ENGLISH DEPART MENT, 12 noon, Nebraska Union.

Schulze, chairman of the Conduct committee, admit ted that the meeting was the Free University. "Then this is not a Uni versity recognized organi zation," the Union official replied. 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 U0, 1 Asbok believes that there is another realm which ex ists besides the known realm. It is this realm, ac cording to Ashok, that Americans insist on explain ing, when no explanation is possible. "There are many things which you feel," explained Ashok. "which cannot be explained." Ashok said that he "feels greatly for the American nations. You have some thing of France something of America, and a culture I greatly admire." Already, Ashok noted In dian culture is beginning to influence American culture, and American science is be ginning to influence Indian science. Another negative aspect Ashok noted in modern American life he expressed in a "love poem." "Your walk is like the agitator in the washing machine. You look like plastic flowers and shine like neon signs. But jour smile is like the ftream emptying into the river, and the river empty ing into the ocean. She did not like the last line, and she broke with me for she had always lived ia the city." But Nebraskans are clos er to nature, Ashok added, then people on the East coast who live in large cities. Most of all A s h o k said that he admires "the sense of freet'om in America. You can wear any clothes you want. I hope you appreciate the precious freedom that you have in your hands." 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 courses. Astronomy, the thought of Marx and Engels, t h e anti-novel, politics of the under - developed nations, the relationship between philosophic ethics and psy chiatry, and the evolution of the detective story were some of the suggested courses. "With the reaction I've seen tonight," Pokorny said at the end of the meeting, "the Free University is no longer just an idea. It's going." ASUN Committee Interviews Over Discrimination 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.

He also proposed that the fiscal year of the IFC be changed to from January 1 through December 31 to July 1 through June 30 to avoid confusion resulting during the busy months of the year. Olson noted that one of the problems with IFC is that the fraternity system is "bogged down in me chanics and tradition" and does not change with the times. He urged the IFC to "take Bowi Headquarters Union. J. Spivey R. Sutton Emily Schlaht Rosen berg, teaching at North east High School in Lin coln.

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 paper. 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 i "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- i - : , : , nnnn ri- ....
