meeting of the North Central
Branch of the Entomological
Society of America.
The leafhoppers are not as
much of a problem in Nebras
ka1 as in more humid eastern
states, but are the cause of
some damage here, said Jar

Following Weill's announce
ments, President Dennis
Christie outlined some of the
provisions of the controversi
al constitution presented by
John Klein. In answering a
question from Bobby Kotecha
about why the constitution
was referred to the judiciary
committee rather than the
Council, Christie said tha ve
Council as a whole has
jurisdiction in a petition of
that type and content.
In presenting the senators
committee final report, Chair
man Denny Swanstrom sug
gested that the Council enlist
the help of other campus or
ganizations in creating inter
est in the program, as well
as contracting students and
senators. He listed AUF,
Young Republicans, Young
Democrats and Builders as
groups that could be helpful
in that capacity.
Swanstrom recommended
that participants take a more
objective role in the Senators
Program. "Last year the pro
gram was too subtle in what
it tried to accomplish," he
said. "Let's let them know:
we want more money."

ation shbuld run smoothly
