I Nebraska center Dale Von Seggern and Kansas State's 7-1 Nick Pino fight it out un-
1 der the boards in Saturday night's Coliseum clash. But the game itself turned out to be less
of the expected fight than a runaway, as the Huskers thumped the Wildcats, 92-68. For the
1 story and other Big Red sports news, turn to pages 3 and 4.

for Evaluation Book head
by Jim Evinger
Senior Staff Writer
ASUN executives are still
searching for co-chairman for the
Faculty Evaluation Booklet com
mittee. , . ,
ASUN President Dick Schulze
and Gene Pokorny, first vice
president, talked last Friday
with one candidate who refused
to take ona of the two positions.
Bill Origer, assistant chairman
to editor of the last Faculty Eval
uation Booklet, Tom Morgan,
turned down the job.
"He was not willing to do what
we'd like him to do," Pokorny
Origer said he turned down an
offer from Schulze and Pokorny
to aid in editing the book because
he basically objects to the slow
ness in their appointing succes
sors. Kicking the football
Origer called the project a foot
ball which Pokorny and Schulze
have been kicking around since
"They've made a football out of
the whole project a little too long,"
He sees the Faculty Evaluation
Booklet as a semester by semes
ter continuous program. He said
this must be continuous to grow
in popular acceptance by faculty
"From an economical stand
point, however, the publishing of
the booklet each year would be
more realistic than a booklet every
semester," Origer said.
The booklet edited by Morgan
which came out last November
lost at least $500, Pokorny said.
Origer said it would be possible,
though hard, for the new editors
to publish a book in time for sec
ond semester registration next
The executives do have per
sons to contact whom they con
sider competent and favorable to
the style of booklet desired, ac
cording to Pokorny.
Pokorny said immediacy is not
a primary problem in selecting the
editors. Instead, the executives
consider that changing the f 0 r
mat of the book is more impor
tant. In time for fall
"We won't publish unless the
old one can be improved upon,"
he said. He did express confidence
that the booklet will come out in
time for the fall registration.
The executives desire a booklet
with "more subjectivity and live
liness, without irresponsiblity in
. the evaluations," Pokorny said.
Origer said he was willing to
undertake the project in Decem
ber. In an interview with Schulze,
he was told he would be contacted
later in the year. Pokorny called
him last Tuesday and the three
met last Friday.
Origer objects to this lapse of
time, which he blames on the ex
ecutives. Since, the December meeting,
guidelines and a general frame
work for the booklet committee to
follow have been worked out by
Pokorny and Schulze.
It is the executives' hope that
with the editors pursuing a gen
eral framework in their own way
that the booklet can be a means
for affecting change in the Uni
Show what we want'
"We want to show faculty mem
bers what we want in an instruc
tor in the classroom situation
not what we already have,"
Origer commented that those
ideas and others of the executives
are good, but that some would be
difficult to implement.
One idea Pokorny and Schulze
would like; to see effected is the
inclusion of evaluations by gradu
ate assistants and students.
Their evaluations would be
more subjective and less intimi
dated than those of most under
graduates, Pokorny said.
"I'd hate to play with their
football after they've let the air
out of it," Origer said, referring
to what he sees as a failure by
the executives to provide contin
uity in the committee.
The previous two booklets were
headed by single chairmen.
Pokorny said that because the
job of publishing has proven to be
too large a work load for one
chairman, the executives are
seeking to appoint co-chairmen.
One would be in charge of the
questionnaire, including composing
the questions, distributing the
forms and compiling the results
from a computer.
The other editor's task would
be to write the book. His job, as
the executives see it, is to de
velop a new approach for writing
the actual evaluations.

A statement supporting the
principle behind Harper Hall's
resolution defying University open
house policy was unanimously
passed Thursday by the Inter
Dormitory Association (IDA)
The statement also resolved to
protect any member resident or
dormitory from prosecution under
the controversial open door policy.
Introduced by S e 1 1 e c k IDA
member Mike Eyster, the state

the faculty committee on student
affairs to consider rescinding the
open door regulation of the new
open house policy.

resolutions on open house policy

tion under article five."
The open door policy, article

earlier by the subcommittee on
student activities, states:
