The document will be pre
sented for a Student Senate

Five articles including two

Assembly for discussion and
The new articles involve
statements of principle aff ect
1 n g classroom situations,
Schulze said. The Assembly
will discuss students' rights
to free discussion, expression
and inquiry within the class
room. Students' right "to an un
prejudiced evaluation of acad
emic work" will be considered
at the Assembly session.
He explained this article
would give students "some
recourse for a grade they felt
was capricious."
Article 1 which states stu

sidered for admission to the
University and student orga
nizations without regard to
"race, national origin, reli

Under Article 13, any orga

ly form in the Lincoln com
munity could be recognized
by the Senate," Schulze ex
plained. Organizations would
still be subject to "ASUN
procedural requirements but
not to substitive review."
PSA Reveals Election Platform
Bv Cheryl Trltt
Senior Staff Writer
Implementation of the Bill
of Rights will be the central
plank in the ASUN election
campaign of the newly-formed
Party for Student Action, ac
cording ot Gene Porkorny PSA
candidate for second vice
president. Running on the PSA ticket
for ASUN president is Dick
Schulze, chairman of the sen
ate Student Conduct Commit
tee. Ron Pfeifer, chairman of
the ASUN student welfare
committee is the party's can
didate for first vice-president.
Presenting the tentative
PSA platform Thursday, Po
korny said a party organiza
tional meeting will be held
Sunday at 7:30 p.m. in the
Nebraska Union.
The meeting in open, he
said, and all students inter

Disciplinary Action
Pending For Coed
The Office of Student Af
fairs has not decided whether
disciplinary action will be
taken or is necessary in re
gard to Jo Flaugher's mov
ing out of University approv
ed housing, according to Rus
sell Brown, assistant to the
dean of student affairs.
At Wednesday's Student
Senate meeting, a resolution
was ap p r o v e d requesting
that Student Affairs not take
any disciplinary action
against Miss Flaugher.
Terry Schaaf, president of
ASUN, stated Thursday that
he hasn't had the opportuni
ty to present the resolution to
Student Affairs.
No Action
"I understand, however,"
Schaaf said, "that there will
not be any action taken
against Miss Flaugher since
she has now agreed to follow
University housing regula
tions and live in approved
Brown noted that it is the
policy of Student Affairs not
to discuss any disciplinary
actions taken by it.
"We haven't had the oppor
tunity to talk about the sen
Ballot Error . . .
Senior Board
Due to an error on the bal
lot for last Wednesday's AWS
senior board vote, a run-off
election will be held Monday
to determine the three senior
board members.
The top six vote-getters in
Wednesday's election will be
candidates in Monday's elec
tion. They are: Jan Binger,
Susan Henderson, Tish Hoyt,
Elaine Kallos, Jane Klimes
and Diane McDonald.
Polls will be open from
11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Ne
braska Union and the East
Campus Union.
According to Candy May,
election chairman, the wom
en serving on executive posi
tions are at the same time
members of the senior board.
So the senior board elections
positions on the PSA ticket
are invited.
He said the Party for Stu
dent Action will become a
permanent campus group.
The party will be directed by
a organizational committee
until officers are elected and
a constitution is written.
The organizational commit
tee, composed of nine stu
dents will run the election
campaign and determine the
manner for selecting the par
ty's senatorial candidates,
Pokorny added.
He said the PSA candidates
for senate positions will help
"determine the final form of
the party platform.
Outlining the PSA platform,
Pokorny said proposals for
"improvements in the areas
of student welfare and educa
tion "will be presented along
with statements on the Bill
of Rights.

plained. "Any decision in
volving possible discipline
would not be made by a sin
gle person."
On Record
At Wednesday's Senate
meeting, it was stated that
Miss Flaugher's action would
be placed on her record.
Brown stated that if any ac
tion is taken, it would not go
on Miss Flaughter's perma
nent record, but would be
noted on a confidential con
duct record that is used only
by the office staff.
"This record is kept sepa
rate from the students' acad
emic record and Is not
available to anyone outside of
the Student Affairs office
without the students permis
sion," Brown continued.
The only disciplinary action
which would be placed on the
permanent record would be

Miss Flaugher has moved in
to approved housing, she can
only be considered for sus

al manner" if it is to help
advance the student and the
University community.
PSA executive candidates
also maintain the Bill of
Rights defines a "firm posi
tion from which leaders must
negotiate in behalf of the stu
dents." In the area of student wel
fare, PSA suggests a change
in the ASUN committee struc
ture, Pokorny said.
"The committee structure
overlaps," he said. Individual
committees are geared for
yearly programs which shows
a "lack of long range plan
ning." PSA executive candidates
also propose that ASUN in

entity." he said.
If ASUN could be recog
nized under Nebraska corpo
ration laws, Pokorny said the
senate would have the pow
ers of a separate legal body.

Elected To
John Fryar, Cather junior,
and Nancy Martson, Selleck
sophomore were overwhelm
ingly elected as the initial
Inter-Dormitory Association
(IDA) president and vice
president, respectively,
in Thursday's University res

Fryar gained over twice
as many votes as his oppon

Miss Martson defeated her
adversary Paul Canarsky,
Abel sophomore, by a vote of

He added that the IDA is

want this brashness for this

be heard across the cam

Pokorny said the incorpo

plank proposes that Student

Lawmakers Already
With Legislation On
By Julie Morris
Senior Staff Writer
The Nebraska Legislature
begins the 49th day of its 77th
session Friday and lawmak
ers have already wrestled
with three major issues in
volving the University.
The Budget Committee co
pleted its public hearings on
the University's 1967-69 bien
nium budget requests two
weeks ago and has been work
ing on the whooping $122.2
million plan the Regents pro
posal to operate the Univer
sity in the coming two fiscal
Behind the question of the
budget increases asked by the
University, an operational
budget hike of 42 per cent
which affects students' pock
etbooks. Tuition Hike
While Gov. Norbert Tie
mann recommended legisla
tive appropriations that out
distance the amount previ
ously recommended by any
Nebraska governor, he also
recommended tuition hikes
up $95 yearly for residents
and $69 a year for nonresi
dents beginning next fall.
Tiemann calculates the tui
tion increases would raise an
additional $3.5 million in funds
for the biennium.
Legislative reaction to Tie
mann's proposals was quick.

One of "the wildest things
that goes on in the dorms
this year guaranteed" is
promised at the Cather Hall
Centennial open house and
dance, planned for March 11,
said John Decker, Cather so
cial chairman.
The floors of the dormitory
will be decorated around a
Nebraska Centennial theme.
A working penny arcade,
an Indian village, a saloon
with the Delta Delta Delta
pledge class as saloon girls,
a general store and a dance
hall with Alpha Omicron Pi
pledges as dance hall girls
are several of the floor
themes, according to Bill
Kennedy, Cather representa
tive. Open house is from 2-5 p.m.
and 7-10 p.m. Saturday after
noon. A dance will be held
from 8:30-12 p.m. The Dark
work with the IDA commit
tees to find out information
get Committee chairman, is
mum on the University's re
quest. Marvel said he would
rather talk about the com
mittee's action after they
have completed work on it.
This is expected to come
about April 1.
The Budget Committee is
also faced with a University
request for a $569,612 supple
mental appropriation to com
plete this biennium.
Education Committee
While the Budget Commit
tee has been busy with the
University and other budget
requests, the Legislature's
Education Committee has
dealt with three measurer af
fecting the University.
The committee moved LB
736, to merge the University
and Omaha University, to
general file on a 6-0 vote
The proposed merger would
fuse the 15,800 student' Lin
coln campus, the Omaha
Medical College and Omaha
University with an enrollment
of 7,500 Into one school.
"Greatest Thing"
Carpenter, chief sponsor of
the b i 1 1, said the merger
would be "the greatest thing
in my book tnat has happen
ed to the state."
Both lawmakers and Uni
versity and OU officials have
been quick to point out that
the merger of the schools
would be the first step toward
a definite strengthening of
higher educational system in
the state.
Tiemann has supported the
bill and his executive assis
tant, Clayton Yeutter, urged
lawmakers to eonsiuur the in
trest of the entire state when
voting on the proposal.
