Six Student Councfl candidates from the coUege en
gineering and architecture have submitted information for
the first of four "Council Candidate" articles which will
appear throughout the week.
Steven Cass
Steve Cassf a sophomore with a cumulative average of
6.39, feels the responsibilities of a Council member should
be to serve as the communicant between his college and
the council and to help the students of his college to under
stand the proceedings of the Council.
Cass favors the present system of representation ac
cording to colleges, particularly in the Engineering and
Architecture CoUege. He suggested, "Because many of the
students of this college are five year men, married stu
dents, independents and fraternity men, I believe repre
sentation of this kind would be much more effective be
cause the members of the colleges are scattered throughout
Lincoln and the campus.
Cass cited possible Council projects which he would
suport if a member as more publication of Council proceed
ings through the Daily Nebraskan and more non-council
workers on Council committees. This would allow more
time for committee chairmen to devote to Council busi
ness. This system would also help to acquaint other stu
dents with the council workings and issues.
George Krauss
George Krauss, sophomore with a 6.25 overaU, feels a
Council member should be responsible to act on aU is
sues in a way which he feels wiU serve the best intererts
of the University.
In regard to the Council representation system, he felt
a further study should be made of the various possibiUties
of representation systems before any change is made.
As a Council member, Krauss would work-for a better

Chip Kuklin
Chip Kuklin, sophomore with a cummulative average
of 6.961, was a member of Student Council this past year.
He feels that a Council member 6hould be weU informed
on the desires of the student body and the duties and ac
tivities of the Council.
In regard to CouncU representation, he states that be
does not believe a living district plan would help to Im
prove communications. "The present system with a few
modifications and the elimination of the activities repre
sentation would be more effective than a major change.
As a Council member he would propose an improved
line of communication, and aUow non-members to serve on
the Council committees.
Kuklin's other activities include IFC political commit
tee chairman, Student Council, co-chairman of Teenage
project, E-Week assistant publicity committee chairman.

Rod MarshaU
Rod Marshall, freshman with an overaU of 7.733, lists
the responsibilities of a Council member as: to discover
and voice the problems of the students he is representing
and to work for the good of the University as a whole.
, MarshaU feels there are definite flaws in the present
representation plan. He suggested a compromise between
college representation and Uving district representation
might solve the problem.
If elected to the Council, MarshaU would recommend a
serious re-evaluation of the present representative sys
tem to promote better communications between the repre
sentatives and those he represents. He would also advocate

Larry Ourada
Larry Ourada, sophomore with a 5.500 overaU average,
says the basic responsibility of a Council member is to
represent his constituents, their ideas and their goals with
out regard to social ties or interest groups.
Ourado felt both representation plans have some merit
but that neither systems gives proper representation of the
students. He felt the elimination of activity representation
was a mistake as "these activities are an integral part of
the campus."
As a Council member, he would promote better com
munications between students and their representative. He
suggested using the Daily Nebraskan more.
Ourada is a member of Corn Cobs and the Arnold

David Scholz, a sophomore with a 8.74 overaU, cited
the responsibilities of a Council member as: the voice of

IFC Asks
A special meeting of the In
terfraternity Council (IFC)
Friday afternoon clarified the
IFC's stand on fraternity Stu
dent Council aspirants not in
cluded on the IFC slate.
A motion was passed to dis
continue the practice of ruling
a house ineligible for the IFC
Student CouncU slate the fol
lowing a year if a man from
that house opposes the slate.
Political committee chair
man Chip Kuklin then asked
for a clarification of the direc
tion in which his committee
ought to act in regard to three
possible situations concerning
slate opposition:
A Greek, who fUes for Stu
dent CouncU unaware of the
purpose and existence of the
An applicant who runs in
opposition to the slate without
his house support;
A man running in opposi
tion to the slate with the sup
port of his house.
An amended motion was
passed which stated in effect,
"A man in the third categroy
shaU cause his house to for
feit IFC slate eUgibUity and
shaU cause the removal of
any slate selections from that
house for the present year."
The group deemed house
support to be an executive de
termination with the assist
ance of the poUtical commit
tee. IFC Signs
AU 22 Interfraternity Coun
cU (IFC) representatives and
members of the IFC exec
councU (officers and commit
tee chairmen) have signed a
statement that they are not
members of subrosa organi
zations. The signing took place at
the IFC meeting last week.
The IFC executive councU al
so had signed a simUar state
ment before the Administra
tion earUer in the year.
The statement signifies that
the signers "are certain that
a true Greek wUl respect and
hold in high esteem the regu
lations as set forth by his
fraternity and the University.
Therefore, we state that we
are not, have not been, and
wUl not become members of
any subrosa or non-approved
University organization, spe
cificaUy Theta Nu EpsUon
(TNE) or Pi Xi (FlXi).
The statement continued,
"our aUegiance to the Greek
system, to the ideas of the
Fraternity system must be
primary. We cannot owe and
keep double allegiances. Wt
are convinced that the sup
posed goals of subrosa organ
izations are not as they have
been stated or claimed to be,
or there would be no need
for such organizations to be
in existence.
"We definitely frown on
any action by members or
aUeged member of such or
ganizations, and offer our
firm statement of non-amaa-
tion and of non-support to any
of their activities. We further
label such men as "hon-
greek-Greeks" and win work
to secure the eUmination of
such elements from our cam
pus community," concluded
the statement.
