About 100 Nebraska Wesleyan
University students came near to
occupying the school's administration
building in protest late Monday
The students' threats came at a rap
session after their efforts to overturn the
provost's tenure decision on English
teacher Nancy Wolf seemed ineffective.
The recently formed Coalition for
Faculty Justice invited faculty members
and NWU president Vance Rogers to
discuss the situation with students in the
Campus Center lounge. Rogers said he
had just returned from out of town and
had only recently been made aware of the
The English department vote was 6-1
in favor of retaining Wolf, the one
dissenter being department head Prof.
Harold Hall. Students pointed to the 6-1
vote in calling for the provost to reverse
According to Robert Battle, editor of
the NWU student newspaper, The
Wesleyan, and member of the coalition's
steering committee, Hall sent out 26
questionnaires to Wolf's former students
for evaluation of her teaching ability. He
said that of the 26, 10 were returned. The
content of the letters can only be released
by Wolf, he said, but students questioned
the validity of the sample.
The editor said Wolf, who has been at
NWU six years, has not made any public
statement yet. Rogers said it will be up to
her to request an investigation by the
Faculty Affairs Committee if she wants
Monday was the fourth meeting of the
coalition. The 100 students were less than
half those who attended last Wednesday's
meeting, but those present seemed
determined to get some kind of action.
Bartle urged students who had been in
Wolf's classes to write their own letter to
Hall and relate their opinion's of her
Rogers indicated that he had many
fetters in his office already, and that he
was open to objective evaluation of the
situation by students.
The majority of statements indicated
that many were bent on sitting-in at the
administration building. One girl said she
thought they were not being taken
When students seemed about to head
for the building, Rogers asked students if
they couldn't agree to some kind of a
time table for reconsidering Wolf's case.
The students agreed to wait for Hall's
decision, which Rogers said he would
request by 10 a.m. Wednesday.
Rogers said a final decision would be
made by 4 p.m. Wednesday.
The meeting broke up leaving students
apparently temporarily satisfied. A
petition is being circulated by students
calling for Wolf's reinstatement. A
resolution passed by the coalition was
also read at the gathering, recommending
Wolf be retained and that students have a
voice in tenure decisions.
Hall's recommendation will be
considered when the NWU Board of
Governors meets Feb 10.

The Nebraska Youth Caucus will
hold an "Organizers' Conference for
New Voters" Feb. 19-20 at the
Nebraska Union. The conference,
which will be open to the public, will
feature all shades of the political
spectrum, according to Acting
Chairman Wayne Werning.
The Caucus is a bi-partisan
organization for youth which will
focus on voter registration, delegate
selection and party and election
reform. It was an outgrowth of the
Emergency Conference for New
Voters held in Chicago at Loyola
University in December.
Werning, a junior at Concordia
Teachers College in Seward, said the
conference will focus on the
' development of useful political skills.
Werning said that there would be a
general session where delegates can
discuss issues and possibly pass
resolutions and statements of policy.
He said that the conference "should
be more representative than the one
held in Chicago." To assure this
representation, he said that
conservatives are going to be
Noting that the young people of
Nebraska could have in past years
significantly changed the state's
political make-up, he thinks that the
newly enfranchised citizens, if
organized, can be a powerful bloc.

Zumberge compared the Board of
Regents allocating funds to ASUN to
the situation where a father gives his
son an allowance with restrictions on
how its spent.
The movement of campuses has
been away from in loco parentis,
Zumberge said, and universities should
"get out of the business of playing
mamma and papa."
He suggested that ASUN should
devise a system where they could levy
taxes as a legislative body, on students
for ASUN programs. "The price you
would pay is to respond to students as
electorates," Zumberge added, which
might make the students more
interested in student government.
Obtaining revenue from a source
other than the Regents would avoid
"the annual ball game of seeing what
you can get by the Board of Regents,"
Zumberge told CSL members that
he would like to see the University
remove itself from control of
extracurricular activities such as
housing and a student newspaper. A
more natural cljmate for
out-of-classroom education would be
fostered for students and faculty if it
wasn't "manipulated from the top,"
A veteran of many Antarctic
expeditions as a glaciologist, Zumberge
said he will continue to pursue
activities in the polar regions. He is
currently helping plan a new
international expedition to the
Antarctic, he added, and the
headquarters for planning wil! be at
Next Tuesday, CSL will meet with
Samuel I. Fuenning, medical director
of the University Health Center, to
determine why a new policy of
issuance of birth control pills was
adopted. The first half hour of the
meeting will be open to hear
statements from the audience.
