The Party for Student
Action held its first formal
meeting since the Spring
ASUN election Tuesday
At the beginning of the
meeting a handful of PSA
workers and a sprinkling
of senators were reminded
by party chairman Billy
Eddy that last spring PSA
candidates promised "lead--ership,
and a lasting, func
tional political party."
Eddy said that he sees
PSA in a "principally re
search function." PSA
should research areas of
particular student concern,
Eddy said, and write eith
er reports or legislation for
PSA senators.
ASUN president Dick
Schulze also suggested that
PSA should "keep senators
informed about student con
cerns. All too often sena
tors and executives be
come caught up in their
own pet projects, and lose
contact with the student
body," Schulze noted.
Eddy established PSA
study groups in three ten
tative areas: education,
student rights, and student

Cancer research on the East
Campus has hypothesized
that persons who eat yogurt
and cheeze are probably less
likely to develop this disease.
Dr. Khem Shahani, head of
the research, said that cer
tain dairy products have
been found to contain an en
zyme which tends to "pre
vent the formation' of can
cer." Not enough research has
been conducted on the en
zyme to determine just how
effective the enzyme will be
in cancer prevention but its
potential is being explored
with great interest according
to Dr. Shahani.
"In India and many other
countries where the people
eat dairy products in quan
tity there has been relatively
few cancer cases found," he
"It is difficult to say just
how close research in this
country is to preventing can
cer but progress is being
made," he said.
Only two weeks ago, he
noted, scientists found white
blood ceils of some persons
produce an antiboc'y that
discourages the growth of

The Party for Student Ac
tion finds itself in a posi
tion of considerable pow
er on campus. It holds,
for all practical purposes,
a clear senate majority with
23 seats, ana all three exe
cutive positions.
At the same time, there
is no opposition party in
the senate, since none of
the major Schulze oppo
nents in last year's election
managed to weather the
PSA landslide.
It is clear that Schulze
does not want PSA to lapse
into inaction until just be
fore the next election. If
anything, he would like
PSA to work on projects
putting the party into an
advisory position for the
senate, while still maintain
ing his workers' interest.
Some students have re
garded the new senate with
skepticism, fearing that
rubber-stamp student gov
ernment by executive de
cree might become a
In such a case, ASUN
legislation might take the

Students can expect a

ing several alternative pro

States policy. After the
referendum, ASUN may
pass a resolution support

The possibility of levying
a small tax on students to
finance ASUN projects may
also be suggested, if s t u
dents appear amenable to
the measure. (The ASUN
constitution, approved by
the students, invests ASUN
with the power to levy
taxes if necessary.)

Two major 1966 issues
will not be forgotten by
either PSA or ASUN. Hous

discussion. The question is

Dr. Shahani noted.
The institute is subsidized
partly by the government and
partly through private con
tributions. The cancer-preventing en

Shahani and his assistants
some four years ago when
they were extra-ting various
enzymes to determine their
role in digestion.

not what ASUN should
do about either issue, but
how ASUN should go
about implementing the
Housing proposal and the
Bill of Rights in the face
of administrative and Re
gents disapproval.'
These are the issues
which should demonstrate
the effectiveness of student
government at the Univer
sity. If ASUN finds itself
forced to compromise again
and again on these issues,
then student government
will be ineffective.
One such compromise
has already taken place
with the new housing policy.
If the Regents stall t h e
ad hoc committee's rec
ommendations any longer,
or if they turn down im
portant parts of the Bill
of Rights, the next move
will be left to PSA, ASUN
and the students.
A Regents' veto, for
whatever reason, will
mean that student govern
ment has little real pow
er to make decisions which
seriously affect student life.
And if a serious, hard
line approach is not taken
by students leaders, then

The major University pro
jects which were not ap
proved for federal funding
"should not be delayed too
long", according to Harry
Allen, director of institution
al research.
The projects, first phases
of an engineering complex
and a life sciences complex,
were below the cut-off line
for funds on a list of pri
orities approved by the Ne
braska Commission for the
Higher Education Facilities
Act of 1963.

by Vice Chancellor Joseph
Soshnik, determines the dis

This year top priority
went to projects planned by
the University of Omaha
and three state colleges.
Allen explained that there
was strong justification for
the Com' ission decision,
adding that it would set
building plans back only "a
few months."
The Commission establish

a "very rigid formula set
up by the act," he said.

the percentage by which
the proposed project will
expand the school's build

This latter factor worked
against the University, All
en said, since the proposed
buildings will not greatly
increase the percentage of
space despite their enorm
ous size.
While the Engineering
Complex will increase
space by 7 per cent, a pro
posed classroom building
on a smaller campus might
increase building space by
25 per cent, thus earning it
more priority points, he

In addition, the Univer

remodel Nebraska Hall and

Most of the funds involved
are actually appropriated
by the Legislature, Allen
pointed out. The federal gov

of the money, while the
state appropriates the re
