Five men are seeking to
lead over 13,000 students In
the most important student
executive body at the Uni
versity. Included in the five are
two candidates for president
of the new Student Associa
tion, Kent Neumeister and
Bill Poppert, and three can
didates for the vice presi
dency of the Association,
Larry Frolik, Rich Meier
and Andy Taube.
The Daily Nebraskan in
terviewed each candidate to
find out what he feels will
be the most important prob
lems he will have to face if
elected and what he will
do if elected. Today we pre
sent the interviews with the
candidates for president,
and tomorrow the vise
presidency candidates' in
terviews will be printed.
"I want to be president of
all the students and of all
the different colleges and of
all the different living
units," said Kent Neumei
ster as he explained what
things he would like to ac
complish as president of the
Student Association.
Neumeister listed three
main projects that he would
like to start if elected:
Teacher and course apprai
sal, a pageant of Univer
sity students for the Nebras
ka centennial and a better
organization of the alumni
He explained that he
wants to establish a com
mission that will co-ordinate
different organizations
on campus such as Kosmet
Klub, the Student Union and
Builders to design a pag
eant for the 1967 Nebraska
"This program will in
form the people of the state
about the role that the Uni
versity has played in the
state's history," he said.
He pointed out that a
teacher and course apprai
sal book of some kind which
would be administered by
the students would help to
better the relationship be
tween the teachers and the
students so that they could
become assistants in educa
tion rather than adver
saries. Neumeister also ex
plained that the Univer
sity's alumni associations
and the friends of the Uni
versity should be better or
ganized so that the Univer
sity's many friends could
work together throughout
the state on such matters
as the school's budget.
He also suggested com
missions to do such things
as expand the student tu
toring program, investigate
recreation facilities and text
book prices and increase the
number of convocations, es
pecially those of controver
sial speakers at the Univer
sity. Neumeister pointed out
that he wants to reduce the
tension between the Greeks
and independents by search
ing for those qualities which
the two systems have in
common and rallying them
together in such programs
as the Centennial Pageant.
"If I'm elected," he said,
"I will use the best creative
talents of all groups for the
benefit of the whole Univer
sity." Neumeister is a member
of the Arts & Sciences Col
lege and has a 7.763 aver
age. He is presently a Stu
dent Council representative
and chairman of the Coun
seling Service Committee
and former chairman of the
Libraries Committee. He
lives in Selleck Quadrangle.
Bill Poppert said that he
felt "getting the new Con
stitution to work right"
would be one of his main
jobs next year if elected
president of the Student As
sociation. Poppert said that the way
the new Constitution and
student government is set
up there could be a Greek
Independent split.
"The new Constitution,"
he said, "lends itself to po
litical parties and this of
course could split so that
one side is Greek and the
other Independent. This
could happen, but it defi
nitely shouldn't."
Poppert pointed out that
organizing the new govern
ment under the new Con
stitution will be a full time
job. He said that if he is
elected he will see to it that
the student government is a
better all around govern
ment instead of overloading
it with a lot of things that
really have nothing to do
with governing.
He explained that one of
the main things he would
like to do is open the Stu
dent government commit
tees to people outside of
just the representatives.
"If we opened the Stu
dent Association commit
tees," he said, "we could
promote student interest in
the problems of the Univer
sity and also we would be
limiting the representatives
to as few committees as
possible so they could
devote more time and ef
fort to a few."
Poppert said that he
wants to help independents
get into some activities and
he said that he didn't feel
they had always had the
chances they deserve.
"I'm not campaigning on
a pro-Greek or pro-Independent
ticket, but on a
pro-University attitude," he
Poppert is a member of
Pharmacy College and has
a 5.9 average. He is a mem
ber of Delta Sigma Phi
Fraternity and is presently
a Student Council represen
tative. He is chairman of t h e

John Klein today an
nounced h i s withdrawal
from the Associated Stu
dents of the University of
Nebraska (ASUN) race and
threw his support for the
presidency of the student
body to Bill Poppert.
In a statement to t h e
Daily Nebraskan, Klein of
fered his help to the new
president in "drawing up
and introducing legislation
with respect to the proce
dure for establishing the
constitution and programs
to make student government
a more effective and signif
icant force."
Klein said he withdrew
from the race because of a
heavy academic schedule.
His withdrawal leaves two
candidates in the running:
Poppert and Kent Neumei
ster. Larry Frolik, who
with Poppert, drew Klein's
support, has paired himself
with Neumeister a a Joint
The all-campus election
for Senate and executive
positions under the newly
adopted constitution is next
Klein said he held that the
success of the new constitu
tion depends upon the elec
tion of competent people,
and "with the exception of
Bill Poppert and Larry Fro
lik, I feel that the candi
dates who have filed . . .
demonstrate no promise of
competence to effectively
establish the new govern
ment." Klein, who was a mem
ber of the constitutional
convention which drew up
the new document, is a
sophomore in the College of
Law. He has previously
been appointed to a position
next year on the Student
Court, where he will serve
as an associate justice.
Neumeister and Poppert,
both juniors, were not on
the convantion.
In addition to Frolik, Rich
Meier and Andy Taube have
filed for vice president.

In Council reports, the
Presidents' Council reported
jthat at their last meeting
j they had discussed methods of
j promoting more safety in
i houses. By safety, the Coun
cil referred to unsafe proced
ures now allowed whereby
anyone can walk into a house
anytime during the evening.
The Rush Council discussed
i problems of rushing, and pro
posed that each bouse turn in
'party themes to avoid dupli
cations. Another suggestion
was to cut out cocktail parties
during rushing.
Diane Michel, president, re
minded the Council that Rush
Week will be from Sept. 1 to
the 6h.
The Standards Council re
ported that they discussed
proper attire for girls until the
end of the year. This includes
"no shorts and slacks on cam
pus." The Council chairman
pointed out that girls should
not walk to class in their phy
sical education clothes. These
rules hold for downtown too,
since girls "are repesenting
the Greek system, your house
and the University."
The Health Council report
to the Panhellenic members
proposed a health newsletter

next year. This would include
articles on such matters as
preventive measures and fa

gestion calls for a Health
Week to be held at the beginn
ing of next year.
The Council discussed the

gram. House applications for the
award must be turned in to
the Panhellenic office today.
