Nebraska's second straight Big
Eight basketball win Monday night

its biggest strength, which fpreshadows
a .nediocore Big Eight finish.
NU did well with its running offense

left against Oklahoma, but the
Sooners chopped back until Nebraska
escaped with a 90-83 Coliseum victory.
"We got tired in the second half,"
said NU coach Joe Cipriano, "We
lacked the discipline to handle the
ball well and take the good tosses."
HE CREDITED the Huskers inex

when an obvious slow-down game
playing for the high percentage toss
was in order. But Nebraska displayed
perfectly executed plays and some
outstanding basketball to bring its
league record to 24.
Streaking to a wide lead only for
the pesky O.U. players to regain con

and instead of criticizing him and the
officials who were not NBA caliber,
why not cheer for the team rather
than against it?
THIS HAS been an exciting if er
ratic team that deserves support for
constantly struggling against ex

Cipriano and aides Glenn Potter and

for a job well done.

Stillman student Harper Hall resident
bv JOAN ELL ACKERMAN
Nebraskan Staff Writer
Last semester Lowell Daberkow,
a sophomore majoring in social
welfare, lived on the eighth floor of
Harper Hall. This semester he is liv
ing on second floor of a dormitory
at Stillman College, a predominantly
small Negro college in Tuscaloosa,
Isaiah Lawson, a junior math
major from Stillman, is taking
Daberkow's place this semester' on
the eighth floor of Harper Hall.
ACCORDING TO Kathy
Riesselman, student coordinator of the
ASUN exchange program between the
two schools, it is "the first true ex
change of students" in three years.
"We have had University students
at Stillman just about every semester
there were four NU students at
Stillman last semester. But this Is
the first Stillman student here in three
years," she said.
Not only Is Lawson starting his
second semester classes in the new
environment of a large university, but
he is starting them a week late. He
arrived in Lincoln last Saturday after
a 36-hour bus ride from Tuscaloosa.
The reason for his late arrival was
that Stillman students were taking
first semester finals last week.
But Lawson did not seem con
cerned abou the late start on his
17-hour class load. He figured that
he would be "all caught up" by the
end of the week.
HE IS FINDING that courses at
the University are comparable to
courses at Stillman, a Presbyterian
affiliated school with 800 students.
Negroe's contribution studied

Why did he come to the
"I wanted to see if I could make
it in a large school," he said. "People
have told me that students at
universities are only numbers. But 1
don't feel like a number here."
"I wanted to see if I would lose
my cool" in a new environment, far
away from home, he added.
LAWSON HAS not been here long
enough to form any definite im
pressions. But before he came, when
someone mentioned "Nebraska," his
immediate thought was "football."
"I like sports real well and I

when they played for Nebraska," he
While on the subject of sports.
Lawson said that he could not resist
bragging about Stillman's basketball
team, which is "out of sight." The
team averages 114.6 points each
game. "They just never miss when
they shoot for the basket," he said.
Lawson is enthusiastic about the
exchange program. He knows two
Stillman students who are planning
to come next fall. There will

University students who were at

that they "were accepted like

"To enlighten students on the Ne
gro contributions to history" is the
theme of Negro History week, which
will be observed on campus February
9-15 according to Mike Randall, mem
ber of the Afro-American Student So
Randall said that the Nebraska
chapter will sponsor several displays
"designed to promote racial un
derstanding" and to "make students
aware" of the Afro-American's role
THESE DISPLAYS may be seen
next week at various sites on campus.
The lower floor of the Nebraska
Union, in a room yet to be specified,
will display a number of informative
photographs concerning Afro-
America, and will also present a
display of Afri-American dress.
Friday, Feb. 14, the Society plans
to show two films: "Of White
America" and "A Time for Burning"
in the Union.
Sheldon Art Gallery will present
a display of Negro art, and Love
Library will devote "an entire
showcase" to Afro-American works,
according to Randall.
He said that the Afro-American
Student Society, in its first year on
the University campus, was organized
in October and now has "about 60
members." Although one must be a
Negro to be a full member, the Socie
ty "has social members of other
races," Randall added.
CAB studies youth fares
by Connie Winkler
Nebraskan Staff Writer
The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB)
will review a CAB examiner's decision
that airline youth-fare discounts
should be abolished, according to
Edward Gerhardt, vice president of
public relations for Frontier Airlines.
Gerhardt did not think that the
special fares for youth under 22 would
CAB EXAMINER Arthur Present
ruled'on January 22 that the discounts
are "unjustly discriminatory" against
passengers who must pay full fares
only because they don't fall within the
age group offered youth reductions.
Currently, 24 U.S. Airlines offer
discounts of one-third to one-half off
regular jet-coach fares to persons
between 12 and 21 years of age.
If Present's decision would not be
reviewed by the CAB Board, it would
become effective in 30 days. The
Board's action eventually could affect
other discount fares such as discounts
offered to families.
THE YOUTH fares were challenged
by National Trailways Bus System,
Gerhardt said. At the investigation
leading up to Present's decision, U.S.
airlines were split on the Issue. Of the
24 carriers offering the youth dis
counts, 14 supported them and 10
either opposed them or didn't take a
position, Present said.
The Frontier vice president said
that youth fares have been a stimulus
to business. But the examiner rejected
arguments that youth discounts are
needed to spur air travel by young
people and to fill empty seats both on
existing planes and the larger planes
that will come into operation soon.
"It will not be through dis
criminatory fares that the airlines will
generate the traffic and revenues
needed to support the operation of
larger aircraft," Present said.
"Rather, such traffic generation will
require that the airlines develop fares
benefiting the public in general."
SINCE ITS organization, the
Society has worked for Negro rights
in Lincoln. The Society "wrote a letter
to the Human Rights Commission"
concerning a policeman who allegedly
made a disparaging racial comment,
according to Randall.
When a fight involving a student
from Africa occurred at a Lincoln
nightclub, and a policeman allegedly
"didn't do his duty," the Afro
American Student Society appointed
a member to represent the African
student before the Human Rights
Commission, Randall said.
"We were there representing
nobody," he said, "because the stu
dent didn't show up." He speculated
that "pressure was put on" the stu
dent not to take his case to the Com
mission. NEGRO HISTORY Week was in
stituted in 1926, well before the con
temporary civil rights campaigns, by
Carter G. Woodson.
Woodson, in 1915, was also the
co-founder of the Association for the
Study of Negro Life and History, Inc.
This association has continued to
promote the study of Negro history
since 1937, it has published the
Negro Historical Bulletin monthly for
each of the nine school months for
distribution to elementary and secon
Concerning the upcoming
observance of Negro History Week,
Randall said, "We wanted to do more.
There wasn't enough time to prepare
for it thoroughly."

Numerous students have expressed
surprise, but resignation, over the
fines at Love Library and the high
cost of losing a book.
If you have a book on two-week loan
which is overdue, according to Miss
Mary Doak, head of circulation at the
library, the following process occurs:
For the first day overdue, the fine is
one dollar and for each succeeding
day, ten cents. If you discover that
you've lost the book, there is a
minimum charge of fifteen dollars,
plus the fine from the date due until
the date billed.
However, it costs the library an
average of twenty dollars to replace
Associate director of the library,
Eugene Johnson, said, "the only
reason for hiking the book fines is to
get the book back on the shelf for
other students. It's more trouble for
us to have to send out the notices and
the bills than it is for the student to
just pay the fine."
The names of persons having unpaid
fines and bills are submitted to the
Dean of Student Affairs.
If six months later, you find the lost
book under your car seat, you can
rush over to the library and give it to
Miss Doak and she will refund fifty
percent of your minimum charge.
Miss Doak said that half of the
money received from fines is used to
replace books and lost periodicals.
When asked where the rest of the fine
money goes, Johnson said, "Well, the
remainder goes to pay the salary of
the clerk who sends out the fine
