Present goals
IDA plans leadership conference,
seeks improved communication
by Jim Pedersen
Senior Staff Writer
The Interdormitory Association
(IDA) will hold a leadership con
ference Saturday, Oct. 5, to
establish definite programs for
dormitory leaders to follow in
working with residence hall
A secondary goal of the con
ference is to improve communica
tions between IDA and the
students'. Sue Houchin, leadership
committee chairman, said at
Thursday's IDA meeting.
The all-day conference i s
organized along lines similar to
new student orientation, Miss
Houchin said. She added that the
IDA will be working closely with
the University counseling service
in organizing the conference.
Dr. Harry Canon, director of the
counseling department, presented
several goals which he felt should
be emphasized in the conference.
"There should be something
happening in the residence halls
that change people in a relevant
way," Dr. Canon said.
I Student tuition payment is
due at the Bursar's Office
no later than 4 p.m., Friday, 1
Sept. 27. A penalty of $10
I will be assessed to students s
who miss this deadline. I
If tuition is not paid by I
Oct. 4, the student will be I
I considered unenrolled. A tui- 1
tion statement must accom-
I pany the payment. I
Canon feels that the three major
areas of change should be intellec
tual, cultural, and in personal
"In these areas we expect you
(IDA) to have an impact on
residence hall students in the com
ing year," Canon said.
IDA must look at the processes
that are needed to accomplish these
goals and make the necessary im
provements i n communications.
Canon added.
"It is ridiculous to make students
function only in relation to the
other students on their floor,"
he said. In the past, students
have always been encouraged to
work with their floor or hall or
entire complex, according to
"We want to work with small
groups which have a common in
terest," Canon said. He labeled
activities comprised of both men
and women students as
another area which must be worked
"We should try to get people to
intermingle and become more of
a regular person who can mix with
society," Bruce Bailey, IDA presi
dent, said.
"So many of these programs are
set up to illicit a response from
people, but don't relate to us," Cliff
Sather, representing Harper Hall,
He then asked Canon if the pro
grams which will be conducted at
the conference do relate to the
students in the residence halls.
"YOU HAVE the potential to
facilitate a change more likely,"
Canon said.
Following discussion on the
leadership conference, John
Ananza, a Biafran graduate stu
dent, addressed IDA concerning the
University Committee to Keep
Biafrans alive.
Ananza labeled the Nigerian
Biafran War as the greatest
holocaust which has ever afflicted
Africa including World War II.
"We have appealed to the United
States for a humanitarian effort
and the result has been very en
couraging," Ananza said.
The money that is donated at
the University will be channeled
to church organizations in New
York which have hired private
planes to parachute food into
Biafra, according to Ananza.
"It encourages me to see people
this far from the scene of the crisis
have so much concern for people,"
Ananza said.
The IDA then passed a resolution
which calls for placing containers
in the snack bars of all dormitory
halls asking for donations to the
Biafran relief fund.
In final action, the IDA
unanimously passed a resolution in
the form of a letter condemning
the Builders Special edition which
was published in August.
THE LETTER was addressed to
Tom Morgan, president of Builders,
and expressed discontent with the
articles which dealt with
The letter also contained several
proposals of IDA for a .change in
the format of the builders edition.
Panhel discusses ranking
Scholastic ranking of
sorority houses on campus
was discussed at the
Panhellenic meeting Thurs
day. President Kathy Kuester
explained that at the present
time Panhallenic doesn't give
rankings but only releases the
top two houses for awards
given during Greek Week.
The delegates discussed a
possible written policy and
are making up a resolution
on scholarship ranking to
present to Dean Helen
member Diane Thiesen read
a resolution that sororities
give up Monday night dinners
on Oct. 3 and 10 and give
the monetary value of the
meals to the "Keep Biafra
Alive" Fund. The resolution
was adopted by the delegates.
The group discussed possi
ble sorority contributions to
the Greek Choir, a suggestion
to eliminate courtesy invita
tions during rush week and
the Regents Luncheon being
held Oct. 14.
"From this we hope to get
a concise report on the
system as a whole and
perhaps make some
beneficial changes in the
areas where changes are
Miss Kuester
Presently under study are:
Discrimination: any obstac
les that keep people fronJe
ing a part of the system.
Expansion: Greek ex
pansion in relation to campus
expansion, problems on other
campuses, quotas in chapters,
new chapters, etc.
Public Relations: among

on campus.
Membership Selection: an
entire, factual study from

park-Hyde Park
Verbal punches aimed
at women's hours
by Julie Morris
Senior Staff Writer
A Hyde Park crowd sprinkled
with barefoot protestors and
University administrators Thurs
day raised a call to abolish
women's hours.
Debbi Larson, a freshman who
lives in Raymond Hall, brought up
the complaint saying, "It is not
the University's privilege to
restrict our coming and going."
"Did your mother hit you over
the head if you were four minutes
late coming home?" Robin Weins
tein asked, referring to AWS rules
on "late minutes."
AWS HOURS are now binding on
freshmen and sophomores. Juniors,
seniors and women 21 and over
can have keys with parental
permission, providing they are not
on scholastic probation. AWS is
considering extending the key
privilege to sophomores.
One male in the audience sug
gested campus women fight the
hours system by refusing to pay
their dormitory rent.
But ASUN Senator Tom Morgan
said the women should "work
through the system."
"I would push the idea through
AWS first, then go across the street
(to the administration), and if they
turned it down you'd have
something to crab about," Morgan
Morgan's comments brought a
fiery response from Mick Lowe who
said, "Remember those people who
worked through the system a year
ago to change the University's on
campus housing policy?"
LOWE REFERRED to a student-faculty-administration
which spent nearly a full semester
writing a new housing policy that
would have required only freshmen
to live on campus.
The suggested new policy was
formally approved by the
University Board of Regents, but
it was only partially implemented
because, according to the Regents,
of a miscalculation of the number
of dormitory students who would
The Regents ordered that all
women under 21 and all freshmen
and sophomore men be required
to live on campus to fill the dorms,
stating that it was necessary to'
keep dorm rates low.
They stated they hoped the full
policy could be implemented this
fall. It has not been.
"So the situation is now worse
than it was before we worked
through the system," Lowe con
cluded. ABOUT 100 people attended the
forum in the Nebraska Union
Capt. Eugene Masters, chief of
the University police, sat in the
back of the room. A Lincoln police
detective also attended, but he said
he was off-duty and was there
because his daughter, a former
University Student, was interested
in the hours issue and told him it
was to be discussed.
About a dozen students removed
their shoes when Lowe stated that
a barefoot student who'd walked
through the Union had been stopped
and told he had to leave the
Union Director Allen Bennett,
who sat through part of the forum,
made no comment on the foot
Administrators leery
of New Left meeting
University administrators said
Thursday they may take some
precautionary steps to be ready in
case of disturbances stemming
from a New Left conference on
campus this weekend.
G. Robert Ross, vice chancellor
and dean of student affairs, said
there may be more campus police
than normal on duty during the
Midwest Regional Conference on
Movement Politics that begins
Ross met with ASUN President
Craig Dreeszen and other ASUN of
ficers Wednesday to discuss the
conference, which is sponsored by
the Nebraska Peace and Freedom
ROSS SAID his staff members
had done some checking on the
meeting and its possible
relationship to the Nebraska
Students for Peace and Freedom
program to demand space in the
Nebraska Union without filing as
a recognized Ftudent organiza
tion. Dreeszen said Ross and other
administrators "were very nervous
about the whole thing and had it
pictured as a much bigger event
than it really is."
Ross said he'd received a copy
of the news release announcing the
conference, which sponsors say will
draw members of the Black
Panther Party and of Students for
a Democratic Society in addition
to Peace and Freedom people. The
sponsors would not estimate how
many people may attend.
"We don't have our heads in the
sand," Ross said.
"I guess I haven't given serious
thought to anything coming out of
the conference but I'm not sure
we have too many people on cam
pus who are used to relating to
people who are in the Black
Panther organization,'? he said.
The conference is being held in
the Nebraska Union in three base
ment rooms reserved under 'the
name of the campus Students for
a Democratic Society, a group
which has only three members
listed in the Office of Student Ac
tivites records, and which has not
been active this year.
Ron Eaglin, coordinator of stu
dent actitivites, met with the cam
pus Peace and Freedom members
Thursday and asked them who was
sponsoring the conference.
Dave Bunnell, a peace and
Freedom member who is listed as
an SDS member replied that it was
SDS. The Nebraska Peace and
Freedom Movement, however, is
the only announced sponsor.
EAGLIN said that the three-member
SDS organization would be con
sidered responsible for what hap
pens in the Union during the confer
Lincoln Police Chief Joseph
Carroll said he has prepared no
plans for a possible disturbance
and said the Lincoln police would
be involved only if requested.
University Police Chief Capt.
Eugene Masters said the University
police "will see what happens."
Ross said the University has
"over a period of time worked out
a system for dealing with anything
major" that includes local police
