To Participate
Vol. 76, No. 88
The University Party for
Progress (UPP) has chal
lenged two members of the
Interfraternity Council (IFC)
slate for Student Council to
a debate which would take
place tonight in 234 Student
Union at 7:15.
The challenge was made
through IFC president Bill
Buckley in a Tuesday night
letter. It was signed by
George Kimball and Robert
Cherny, two UPP candidates
for Student Council.
The topic of the debate
would be, according to the
letter, that the principles em
bodied in the platform of the
UPP should be enacted by
the Student Council.
Kimball and Cherny were
to uphold the affirmative,
said the letter.
Cherny said a suggestion
for the debate was made at
a Central Council meeting of
the UPP Monday night. Dis
favor or disinterest has been
exemplified bv the IFC slate
for Student Council because
they have not come out with
any statement of their own
regarding what they favor or
oppose, Cherny said.
He said the suggestion was
favored by a faculty .member
whom the Central Council
had proposed for a speaker
at the UPP convention to
night. Buckley said yesterday he
could not understand why the
lptter was sent to him. "I re-
ivprf the letter at 10:45;
Tuesday night and the de
bate is tonight. That gives
whomever would debate from
the IFC slate one day of prep
aration. And the debate is to
be held in front of the UPP
convention," Buckley said.
"And although I did not re
ply to the letter, posters an
nouncing the debate have
been put up. Also, I believe,
it is a matter of protocol to
let the challenged choose the
time and place of the de
bate," he said.
If the UPP is serious about
this debate and it is not just
an attempt to gain publicity,
it seems to me that tbey
would have contacted the
Arts and Sciences candidates
for Student Council whom
they are challenging and done
better planning, he added.
"Student Council is a seri
ous thing. I question, with
tactics of this kind, whether
they are serious," Buckley
Cherny said that he feels
the basic areas of disagree
ment will best be shown in a

sides can- present their views
under specific rules.
"We have no longer to pre
pare for the debate than the
candidates we challenged,"
he said. "We started prepa
ration yesterday and there is
no time advantage for either
side," he added.
"We, as UPP representa
tives, expect to bring the is
sue out in the open with the
varying views of the candi
dates so the student body will
know how both sides feel,"
he said.
There will be no decision
given, he said. The people
at the debate can listen and
decide on the issues for them
selves, as we merely present
the issues," he said.
The platform of the UPP
which would be the subject
of the debate includes:
1. ) We Stand in favor of
the Nebraska Student Coun
cil's affiliation with the Na
tional Student Association
(NSA). Although there has
been some criticism of the
organization, we feel that the
best way to change it is from
the inside, not from staying
outside it and condemning it
from there. We further feel
that there is much to be
gained from association in
the area of contact with other
campuses throughout the na
tion. In addition, the NSA
maintains international con
tacts which would not other
wise be available.
2. ) We stand in favor of
the amendment to the Student
Council Constitution proposed
by Bill Dunklau. This pro
v i d e s for the following
changes: 1.) to change from
college and organizational to
district representation on a
Council of thirty members
chosen by the single trans
ferable vote system of pro
portional representation, rep
resentation from the districts
to be based on its vote in the
current election; 2.) to allow
all students to run for Student
Council who will be eligible
to serve during the term for
which they seek election; 3.)
to permit the newly-elected
Student Council to choose its
own officers from its own
membership; 4.) to explicitly
guarantee each student a se
cret ballot in Student Council
elections; 5.) to give the resi
dents of a district the right to
recall their elected repre
sentatives. 3. ) We stand in favor of an
end to discrimination against
University students, both on
and off campus. Toward this
end, we have established a

Won't Take Place
Nebraskan Staff Writer
Bill Buckley, president of
the Interfraternity Council,
announced last night that de
bate between the candidates
for Student Council who are
supported by the IFC and
those who are supported by
the University Party for Prog
ress, will not take place.
Buckley said that the UPP
debate posters placed around
the campus yesterday were
printed without IFC verifica
tion that a debate would be
held. Buckley said that he had
received a letter last night
from two members of the
group stating that they want
ed IFC members to debate
the UPP's platform.
Continuing, Buckley said
that the IFC is not a political
party. It only supports men
whom it feels are well-qualified
and would be of benefit
to the University if elected to
the Student Council. The IFC
does not have a platform of
any kind, and does not dictate
anything to the men whom
it supports. Each of these
men, he said, are independent
candidates, running on then
own merits.
Dick Weill, a University de-
bater and member of the Stu -
dent Council who attended the
meeting, said that in a de
bate, the group which is chal
lenged has the right to phrase
the question to be debated,
and also to set the time and

Of the above parts of the
UPP platform number one
would have to be adopted by
resolution and number two
would require a constitutional
change, Cherny said. Num
bers three and four would
have to take the form of
strong recommendations to
the administration, he said.
Number two could be ac
complished this year if
placed on the Spring ballot,
he said. "The other three
would have to be done next
year because there is not suf
ficient time to do them ade
quately this year," he said,
"but we are strongly in favor
of them being carried out
next year."

of these privileges were grant

the challengers in this case.
The two members of t h e
UPP have been sent a letter
giving the IFC's position on
the subject.

of the IFC and the group's
