Despite fluctuating interest rates,.:
dormitory cost will be unaffected,:
. by John Dvorak
Junior Staff Writer
Despite fluctuating interest
rates nationally, the interest
on bonds financing Universi
ty dormitories, and there
fore, dormitory costs, will be
unaffected, according to the
Director of Budget and Sys
tems Planning, Glenn Smith
Smith explained Thursday
afternoon that even if the
Federal Reserve Board raises
interest rates, bonds already
issued would not be affected.
as the interest rate is fixed
for the life of the bond.
He added, however, that
high national interest rates
would definitely affect future
building projects at the Uni
versity, since the cost of is
suing bonds would then be
Recently, President Lyndon
Johnson recommended a
sharp increase in the interest
rate on college dormitory
loans which would take effect
immediately. But, while this
affects some Nebraska col
leges, the University does not
participate in the federal fi
nancing plans and is not af
fected. .
Smith listed several of the
reasons why the University
does not use federal loans.
Local financing of dormi
tory bonds was less expen
sive than using a federal pro
gram, Smith said. "Also,
some federal restrictions
would have been placed on
us," Smith said. "Although
some restrictions might not be
detrimental, the Board of Re
gents preferred to operate on ,
a local basis.
Smith explained briefly how
building projects such as dor
mitories were financed bv
"The Board of Regents
draws up plans, determines
how much the project will
cost and issues bonds. Then
a syndicate buys the entire
issue of bonds from the Uni
versity, in effect.
The syndicate later resells
the bonds to the general public.

U.S. Banking Committee
rejects loan interest hike
Washington (CPS) -.The

had rejected President John

sharply increase the interest
rate on college dormitory
Education officials had es
timated the President's pro
posal would cost each student
about $100 more per year in
dormitory fees.
Under the Administration's
proposal, the present three
per cent interest ceiling on
the loans would have been
substituted by a sliding rate
based on the average market
yield of comparable govern-
Iment obligations. This could
have raised the rate to more
than five per cent.
In rejecting the Administra

Committee recommend
ed that Congress pass a plan
under which the government
would pay the difference be

In order to keep your contact lenses as
comfortable and convenient as they were
meant to be, you have to take care of
them. But until now you needed two or
more separate solutions to properly
prepare and maintain your contacts. Not
with Lensine. Lensine is the one lens
solution for complete contact lens care.
Cleaning your contacts with Lensine
retards the buildup of foreign deposits on
the lenses. And soaking your contacts in
Lensine overnight assures you of proper
tens hygiene. You get a free soaking case
on the bottom of every bottle of Lensine.
It has been demonstrated that improper
storage between wearings may result in
the growth of bacteria on the lenses.
This is a sure cause of eye irritation and
in some cases can endanger your visioa
Bacteria cannot grow in Lensine which is
sterile, self-sanitizing, and antiseptic.
Just a drop or two of Lensine, before you
insert your lens, coats and lubricates it '
allowing the lens to float more freely in
the eye's fluids. That's because
Lensine is an "isotonic" solution.
which means that It blends with
the natural fluids of the eye.
