ASUN Tables Housing Report To Better Examine Statement ASUN tabled the Ad Hoc Housing Committee report Wednesday until next week after Senator Al Spangler sug gested the Senate needed more time to "scrutinize" the statement before taking ac tion on the committee's rec ommendations. Although Student Senate failed to act on the report, the Housing Committee will still present the statement to the Faculty Senate Thursday for discussion. Students' Views Since the Regents will meet next week, Marv Almy, Hous ing Committee chairman, sug gested Senate act on the hous ing recommendations before the meeting so students' views can also be represented. Almy asked the Senate to endorse the Ad Hoc Commit tee's ten recommendations for housing policy changes or to adopt other suggestions to be taken before the Regents. Effective Next Fall If the Regents approve the policy changes, he said, the new housing regulations could go Into effect next fall.

Snyder Says Sophomores Ought To Live On Campus Associate Dean of Student Affairs, Helen Snyder, has submitted her opinions in a minority report to be added to the Ad Hoc Housing Com mittee's recommended nous " ing policy statements "I agree with the report as presented with one exception. The committee has acknow ledged the value of the group living experience and has placed belief in a progression of independence in housing choices as one advances through college. This I agree with. The divergence in my thinking with the committee proposal is related to the speed of that progression," the report states. Two Recommendations "Specifically I would rec ommend (1) that sophomores, like freshmen, live on cam pus; (2) that the specially ap proved housing apply to the exceptions that must neces sarily be granted within the freshman and sophomore classes." Miss Snyder's ' opinion dif fers from the committee rec ommendation made last week that sophomores may live in on campus housing or in spe cially approved off-campus housing! The committee rec ommends that juniors and seniors may live in on-cam-pus housing, specially ap proved off-campus or gener ally approved off-campus Klein, a University law stu dent, who presented his own housing policy recommenda tions and asked that the Sen ate add his report to the Ad Hoc Committee report for the Regents' consideration. . Klein stressed his report did not differ radically from the Ad Hoc Committee report but that the Committee's recom mendations contained "defic iencies in the area of men's housing. Abandoned Some White liberalizing women's housing regulations, he said, the Committee "has aban doned some of the achieve ments made in men's hous ing." He suggested "phasing out" the rules which compel fresh men and sophomores to live in the dormitories. He added that these students should be required to live in "gener ally approved housing." Goals Endorsed The Ad Hoc Housing Com mittee goals "should be en dorsed," he added, and in particular the liberalized women's housing rules. In other Senate business Spring Sprung? housing. She gave her explanations, reasoning that as the fresh man year is spent in ad justment to new learning and living arrangements, as the committee report states, "this means the sophomore year can be a developmental year and a year to explore some of the participation in group experiences with more free dom than is possible in the first year. "It is a time for some lead ership to emerge and some involvement with the actual program making. This comes from the continuity of the two years and cements the rela tionships with the life of the campus and the University community." Transition To Life She also explains that the transition to life after college would come more appropriate ly in the last two years of college, when a student more specifically enters his major field and looks ahead to his career. Her last reason states that "many of the problems of ad justment cited for freshmen apply equally well to the new transfer student." The committee report, with Miss Snyder's minority report . and a minority report by com mittee members Ron Pfeifer, Susie Phelps and Dr. Floyd Hoover, will be presented to the Faculty Senate Commit four executive appointments were approved.

Ken nedy House, after the house officially announced its seces sion from the Cather Execu tive Council. Named to the committee by Cather president Bruce Bailey to work with Floor 13 in their dispute over the Ca ther By-Laws were Jim Ca vender, Cather vice-president, Ron Swanda, floor ex ecutive representative, Ron Klutman, floor 10 executive member, Ken Noha, floor 8 executive member, and Steve Grenier, whose acceptance is still pending his approval. In a prepared statement, floor 13 proclaimed that "the Cather Hall government has become too powerful, the Ex ecutive Council has surpassed its limits of authority in mak ing the present by-laws and that the Judicial Council has surpassed its limits of author ity in enforcing these by laws." Individual Rights It continued that they "have threatened the indi vidual rights of the residents of this hall as guaranteed by the United States Constitu tion and the Constitution of Cather Hall" and consequent ly, the h o u s e has seceeded from the Cather Executive Council. Floor president Robert Wolff said that as soon as the proposals in the proclama tion are met, "we -will consid er returning to Cather Hall." The group's main request centers on the by-laws which have been on trial since Feb ruary. Kennedy House contends that the by-laws were hastily enacted by the Executive Council with the residents having no voice in the deci sion. They propose that the Cather constitution be amended to provide a refer endum vote to be taken among the residents on all President of the Corporation.

They also desired a propos al whereby all future amend ments would automatically be tabled for one week to en able Executive members to discuss the by-laws with their floor residents. Dress-Up Regulation They referred specifically to two by-laws in the procla mation demanding that the dress-up regulation by-law re quiring residents to dress-up at certain meals be repealed and replaced by a recom mendation of dress-up stan dards. The other request asked that the by-law on crowding in meal lines be re pealed until it can be en forced upon the residents of Pound Hall and Women's Residence Hall as well as Cather. The proclamation also re quests changes that would give the Floor judicial Boards additional power and "to take power away from the Hall Judicial Board," Wolff said. To prove their point, Wolff said the House has been re named John F. Kennedy Hall and the student assistant Gary Heaston has been tem porarily assigned as the hall's residence director. Although they have with drawn from Cather student government, the floor still in tends to abide by all s t a t e and University regulations Wolff said. Abidte By Laws "We plan to have our own by-laws and a constitution" he said, in adding that "our main reason for secession is to reform rather than to re voke." After Wolff read the procla mation at the Executive Council meeting, the Council proposed to freeze all Cather 13 funds and announced that although Cather 13 was not under Cather Hall jurisdic tion the floor still lives in Cather Hall and they will be placed under the jurisdiction of residence director J i m Pequette until they rejoin Omaha in 1923.

Spring Festival Chairman Craig Gilpin said seating Alan R. Morili Cather Hall. Committee Meets Bailey asked that the com mittee meet at least twice in the next week and have their findings available for presen tation at next week's Cather Executive Council meeting. "I hope they have an open mind about this committee," Bailey said. "Although much question has arisen over their methods of applying changes, I have to agree there is a ma jority of unrest over the sit uation (of hurriedly passing Cather by-laws)." "Since our main objective as Executive Council is to co ordinate and organize the hall for the resident's benefit I plan no meeting regularly with them until something ii worked out," Bailey said. Referendum Vote He added that areas the committee will discuss in clude the referendum vote requested by Kennedy Hall, a definition of common Cather areas for judicial jurisdiction asssignment and the automa tic tabling of future by-laws. Several Cather Executive members disagreed with the methods the hall used but they all agreed that the by law enacting system d o e i need an adequate investiga tion. Bill Kennedy, Cather social chairman, said that they "have a legitimate complaint as sometimes we vote and don't know what we are vot ing for. I like the referendum with the idea of waiting at least one week after the item is made before voting." 'Rash Action' IDA vice-president BriEti Ridenour said that it was a rash action, "but since it'j done, I feel the government should and will handle it in the most responsible manner possible." Cather Hall activities chair man Jerry McCrey alse didn't agree with their meth ods but added "that they have brought up several nec essary points and the pro posed new system would be better."
