To Come
In May
The 1967 Cornhusker will
come out in the second
week of May, according to
Mary Ann Deems, editor.
"More than 80 per cent
of the Cornhusker is done
and the staff is ahead of
their final deadline and
have been ahead of
successive deadline,"
ueems said.
Done By Easter
"The junior staff's
will be completed before
spring vacation and the
1968 Cornhusker staff will
be announced the week af
ter vacation," she said.
Miss Deems said that the
1967 Cornhusker will con
tain 75 per cent more color
pages with enlarged intro
ductory sections. The cover
will be manufactured by a
process which has never
been used on the Corn
husker and will make it
more attractive.
Is Inexpensive
"The Cornhusker sells at
a price lower than any of
the Big Eight or Big Ten
schools and is rated super
ior to any of these schools'
yearbooks by both the As
sociated Collegiate Press
and Columbia University
Yearbook Service," Miss
Deems concluded.

"These are not the final

Almy also noted that the

Included in this area would
be exceptions for financial

Assembly Amends Article One
By Cheryl Tritt
Junior Staff Writer
Bill of Rights Assembly Sunday voted to amend Ar
ticle One so student organizations may not have discrimina
tory membership unless they are "specifically political,
religious or nationally oriented interest groups."
ASUN Student Conduct Committee members explained
to the Assembly that these special interest groups would
include Newman Club, Young Democrats, the Indian Stu
dents Association and other organizations of this nature.
Original Article
The original article stated students have the right
for admission to the University and its student organiza
tions without regard to race, national origin, religious
creed, or political beliefs.
Delegates questioned if "student organizations" in
cluded fraternities and sororities.
Bob Samuelson, ASUN second-vice president said a
legal definition of student organization is not in the Sen
ate constitution.
Legal Definition
He added a "legal definition is forthcoming" in con
nection with the pending AWS Student Court case which
will determine the status of the organization.
The Assembly agreed that two amendments concern
ing classroom freedoms be added to the bill.
One article states students have the right to "free
discussion, expression, and inquiry within the classroom."
Concurring with this article is a second statement
which says students have the right to an "unprejudiced
evaluation of academic work."
Classroom Rights
Introducing the article ASUN senator, Kris Bitner, said
these articles were patterned after a statement of class
room rights of the American Association of University

Faculty Committee OK
Given To Coed Visiting
By Mark Gordon
Junior Staff Writer
The Faculty Committee on
Student Affairs gave their
approval to the coed-visiting
hours proposal at a Friday
conference, thus leaving the
final approval in the hands
of the University Board of
Bob Muschewske, advisor to
the coed-visiting hours com
mittee, said the Faculty
Committee, comprised of
ASUN representatives, facul
ty members and administra
tors, approved the measure by
a wide margin.
Final decision on the pro
posal will be considered at a
future Regents meeting, pre
sumably the Regents meeting
in early April.
Proposal Modified
At the meeting, the coed
visiting hours committee,
composed of chairman Dave
Shonka, Abel Hall residents
Norm Mattson, Wayne Mor
ton and Ron Schneider and
Sandoz resident Jackie Duden
dorf , presented the proposal in
a statement which the com
mittee had been preparing
since the first proposal was
turned down.
The original proposal was
turned down earlier by a Fa
culty Committee of G. Robert
Ross, dean of student affairs,
Russell Brown, administra
tive assistant to the vie e
chancellor of student affairs;
and Helen Snyder, associate
dean of student affirs.
The statement is a modifi
cation of the original proposal
Roger DoeiT, vice presi
dent of ASUN, attributed the
lack of applications being re
turned to the candidate's in
terest in becoming affiliated
with a party.
He noted that there is at
least one other slate of of
ficers, in addition to the PSA
ticket, who will be filing for
senate executive positions.
Doerr stated that there are
many applications out and
that everybody "seems to be
waiting to the end."
"I feel, however, that there
will not be as many candi
dates as last year. This is
due, probably, to the fact that
students are realizing the Sen
ate is a big job and must be
taken seriously," Doerr explained.
which the Faculty Committee
said needed revision.
Five Contentions
The statement contains five
contentions the committee be
lieves will give additional sup
port to the group's case.
The first states "a college
student living away from home
is mature and responsible en
ough to entertain guests in his
own home and the residence
hall is a home for nine months
of each year."
The assets of the individual
rooms, such as radios, desks
and televisions, are conducive
to the proper entertainment
of guests by an individual.
Cleaner Rooms
The presence of members
of the opposite sex will be an
inducement for individuals to
clean their rooms properly.
The students' rooms pro
vide an atmosphere of enough
privacy to allow discussions
of mutual problems. "In the
total educational environment
of the residence hall, the
coed-visiting hours will pro
vide mature students with an
opportunity for the social
interaction that is vital to the
individual's full development
as a citizen."
If the Regents approve the
bill, the committee said the
hours will assume a four
week trial period with four
specific restrictions in effect.
Trial Period
During the trial period, a
supervisor, not necessarily a
student assistant would have
to be present during the hours.
A responsible' student could
substitute for the student as
sistant. Doors of rooms that are en
tertaining guests must re
main open during the time a
guest is being entertained.
The individual residence
halls may instigate the policy
no more than twice a week
and each hall has the final
decision as when or if the
hours will be in effect.
The coed-visiting hours only
on weekends will have a three
hour limit each time they are
in effect in the University
residence halls.
Ross Disaproves
Although the measure re
ceived favorable support from
the Faculty Committee, Dean
Ross said Sunday he dis
approves of the coed-visiting
"I have previously notified
the students that I was not
in favor of the hours," he
said. "As I told them before,
the residence hall rooms and
floors aren't designed for en
tertaining guests. We don't
have the facilities for that."
"I've indicated before that
these articles so explicitly," a formal means of appeal
may have to be established where students could take
grievances concerning classroom problems.
He said the existing channels of appeal are not pub
licized and are used infrequently.
Assembly delegates favored Article two which states
students should have a clear statement of contractual ob
ligations to the University.
Several delegates however, suggested an amendment
which would stipulate that students receive a statement of
these contractual rights when they receive initial material
concerning their enrollment.
Discussing Article thirteen, Samuelson said if this
statement is passed, it "would be a directive" to changa
a present ASUN law.
Article 13
Article thirteen states that student organizations may
enjoy recognition by the ASUN if they comply with sen
ate's procedural regulations.
ASUN presently can rule on the "form, clarity and
content" of an organization's constitution, Samuelson said.
Article thirteen would negate senate's power to approve
an organization based on the content of its constitution.
Introducing the bill Senator Sue Phelps explained that
any organization which was within the "national, state and
local laws could be recognized by ASUN."
She explained that the ASUN rule which gives senate
the power of substitive review over organizations is in the
form of a Government Bill passed in March 1966.
Senate would simply have to declare this Bill uncon
stitutional, she said, to negate this power of substitutive
