AWS Congress met
Wednesday and discussed
removal of parental
permission sheets for women.
Congressman Ellen Pilmer
presented a letter that could
be sent to parents. It would
state the University restric
tions. If the parent wanted
further . restrictions on their
daughter, they could write for
the permission sheet.
THIS SHEET would be used
on a one year basis with the
parent renewing it every year
if they desired. Action on the
idea was delayed for further
There was discussion on a
clause in the government bill
presented to student senate.
The clause says that the
ASUN Senate considers it a
violation of student rights for
an organization that is an
organ of the administration to
impose rule on their non
academic life without their
"AWS derives its powers
from administration not from
ASUN," vice-president Nesha
Neumeister said. "ASUN
merely has a say in how we
manage or conduct our ac
tivities not in what our ac
tivities are going to be."
THEREFORE IF this bill is
approved, ASUN has no
power to inforce it in regard
to AWS, according to Miss
Congressman Cricket Black
asked Congress to delete the
constitutional clause which
says that all women on cam
pus are automatically
memibers of AWS.
"Many of the girls question
why they have to be
members," Miss Black said.
"They have no dues, meetings
or other obligations to AWS.
Instead they enjoy
privileges voting, pro
grams of special interest,
keys. Miss Black noted.
AWS a coed cannot avoid the
rules because they are
University policy."
Congressmen were
generally in agreement and
an amendment will be
discussed at later meetings.

he said. Their purpose is to

Nearly every Midwestern
public college or university
makes some attempt to ac

with institutions of higher
learning, Aronson noted. But
NU's approach is different
from all others.

role of these 50 leaders play
an important part in the day.
The leaders, will aid the
high schoolers to better
understand facets of
University academic and
social life.
"The high school visitors
want to hear from University
officials and professors, but
they especially want to talk
with college students," Aron
son pointed out.
Many professors and deans
willingly and without retribu
tion give up their Saturdays
to conduct informal sessions
with the visitors, another
unique situation, Aronson con
tinued. THIS WILLINGNESS of the
faculty and students makes

ed. Other institutions do not
have this willingness.
"Most schools in the Big
Eight conduct formal tours of
their campuses one Saturday
a year," he said. "But pro
fessors and students are not
willing to contribute."
N e braska's Information
Day is considered unusual by
other Big Eight admission's
directors, Aronson said.
The students arrive on
campus early Saturday
morning and attend a mass
orientation in the coliseum.
They attend sessions with
professors in nearly every
department. They have lunch

noon tour a residence hall.

periods conclude the sessions
in the late afternoon.
ABOUT 1,919 high school
seniors have registered for
NU's four information days.
From their comments,
Aronson said that Information
Day should be considered a
gigantic success.
"Many students come from
as far away as Gering and
Gordon," he said. In the past,
some students have actually
come from Philadelphia and
Baltimore for the sessions. In
the latter cases, the high
schoolers wanted a personal
meeting with Aronson, but at
his suggetsion attended the
Information Days.
"We try not to recruit kids
to the University, but to ac
quaint them with the aspects
of further education,''
Aronson said. "We think col
lege is a good thing, but in
many cases other forms of
post high school education are
excellent also."
OF COURSE not all pro
spective University students
are reached by the Informa
tion Day, he said. To sup
plement the sessions, Aronson
and some University students

high schools to students.
Just last week, Aronson
spoke at South Sioux City,
Norfolk, and West Point
Nebraska schools. More than
100 such events are scheduled
this semester, he reported.

From his knowledge of
