Montgomery lectureship revises format
by Ron Talcott
Nebraskan Staff Writer
"We decided that the day of the
lecture, where the audience listens but
cannot respond, is past," Dr. Paul
Olson, professor of English, said in
discussing the revision of the
Montgomery lectureship program, to
be held May 24.
Olson, chairman of the lectureship,
said that this program has been held
annually for about 20 years, but in
recent years "has become quite bor
ing" and has not been well attended.
He explained that this year students,
administrators and three of the na
tion's leading educational spokesmen
will mutually participate in a series
of talks and panel discussions.
"This format for the lectureship
costs more money," Olson said, "but
this way, we hope to create more
student interest in the program and
generate some Intelligent discussion
on where higher education Is going."
THE MONTGOMERY lectureship
will open at 7:00 p.m. Friday, May

Lacey thinks that the reason for
the communication gap between
senators and students is the fact that,
"the students feel Inferior to the
senators. Senators and students need
a place to discuss things. Not a place
like Hyde Park, but perhaps another
designated spot in the Union."

president, "exceedingly responsible,"
Olson added, "I am interested in
Williams' notions on the direction the
University should take, not only
because he is black, but because he
is politically careful."
Although selected students were
asked to attend, Olson emphasized
that any student who wishes to attend
may do so, simply by calling his office
at 1014 Seaton-Hall.
"We want students to check in at
the office so we can assign them to
appropriate discussion groups," Olson
said. "We don't want to put a

Dennis Berkhelm said, "I'm running

ASUN must change the basic
philosophy of the University."
Berkhelm believes that the best way
to bridge the gap of communication
between the Senate and students is
to really get through some relevant
proposals. "The reform that the
students wish should be put Into ef

size of large classes may be im

Vavak said. "Edcuation should be
some awareness in your mind and
we have to start somewhere."
In a question and answer period,
Chaloupka said that his slate proposes
putting the faculty evaluation book

Pub Board would have the money and

said. He also suggests that more of
the specific staff names be listed in

VAVAK SUGGESTED a faculty

Harvard where students go to various
classes for two weeks and then decide
which courses they want to take.

A member of the audience charged
that Chaloupka had lobbied against
Senate re-apportionment during a
recess at the constitutidnal conven

stop and look back at the proposal
just as an artist stops and looks at
his work, but I voted for re-apportionment
with no reservations,"
Jim Humlicek, speaking for Zucker

Chaloupka who was chairman of the
ASUN Reapportionment Committee
why the reapportionment proposal
took so long to prepare.
"This is not a simple thing. Last
