Remainder of program

The scheduled appearance of U.S.
Sen. Abraham Ribicoff at an all
University convocation to have
been held this afternoon at 1:30
was cancelled late Thursday at the
request of the Connecticut Demo
crat. Ribicoff told the ASUN office
that pressing business in the Sen

note speaker for the World in Revo

With the exception of Ribicoff,
the program will proceed as sched
uled. Dr. Paul Miller, assistant
secretary of the Department of
Health, Education and Welfare (for
Education), will speak at. 10:30
a.m. at the Nebraska Theater.
Detroit Congressman John Con
yers Jr. will give an address at 3
p.m. in the Nebraska Union ball
room. The conference closes with a
roundtable discussion at 4:30 p.m.
in the ballroom with Miller and
Miller will discuss "Federal Aid
to Higher Education." He present
ly serves as chairman of the Fed
eral Interagency on Education.
Conyers' speech, "Crisis in the
Cities Detroit" will cover the
problems in his own First District
of Michigan, including the Detroit
area that was the scene of the
worst of the riots last summer.
Conyers serves as the only Ne
gro membei on the House Judici

civil rights legislation pass.
He was the sponsor of an amend

This contrasts with past opera

city governments and offered their
programs like door-to-door sales

serves as a coordinator advising
cities how to best utilize available
resources and in what order of pri

function of HUD has been the de-

The most important goal of AWS

Miss Baker felt that fulfilling the
provisions of the newly ratified con

"We have no reference from past
years of how the new AWS struc
ture will operate," she noted.
The newly ratiiied constitution
should give AWS a dynamic start,

sitions on the College Advisory

tion commissioner said Thursday.
Hilz said that although about 125
application forms have been taken,
only the 11 have been returned. He
emphasized that the deadline for
filing is 4 p.m. Friday.
He said there have been rumors
of student political parties forming,

Explaining the evaluation proce
dures planned for the junior-senior
key system, Miss Baker said, "We
will try to determine the success
of the key system by contacting
women's student assistants, resi
dent directors, and key chairmen
in the living units.
"If we're going to expand our
key system or have other changes
in women's hours we need a firm
foundation to work on." she ex
plained. Miss Baker described several of
the provisions of the AWS hand
book as "outdated." One stipula
tion that should be changed is the
rule against taking Lincoln over
nights on 2 o'clock nights, she said.
Another change in the handbook
that Miss Baker made concerned
the limitation on the number of
over-nights a coed may take during
