THAT'S NO BULL . . . It's a picture of "Husky Herf", the suggested spirit sym
bol for the University which was approved by a straw vote yesterday in Student
oice Campaign
By Wayne Kreuscher
Junior Staff Writer
Andy Taube, Rich Meier and Larry
Frolik all three are running for vice
president of next year's new Student As
sociation. In interviews with the Daily Nebraskan
all three students explained what they
would like to do as vice president.
Lairy Frolik is running with Kent
Neumeister, who is a presidential candi
date. Frolik explained, "I'm running with
Kent because he's the most qualified for
the position of president and I think it's
desirable that the president and vice
president be able to work together. He
and I think along the same lines mostly."
He said he felt it would be the vice
president's role in the new Association to
act as speaker of the Senate; to organize
the Senate and to be the executive whip.
"Student government," he said, "must
not be just another activity, but it should
lead and govern. Also it must be careful
not to become tied up with a lot of pro
jects that are none of the Student Sen
ate's business.""
Frolik pointed out that such commit
tees as student activities and the Peace
Corps should be done either on the execu
tive lvel of the student government or
should be handled by other campus or
ganizations. He explained that the main area
where student government could do a lot
more work is in the welfare area. He said
that the committee should be enlarged
and such things as Dead Week should be
put into more effective operation.
Student recreation, advisory boards and
student wages especially on Ag campus
were other things that Frolik felt Student
Council should become more concerned
Frolik, who is president of Beta Theta
Pi Fraternity, has a 7.802 average and
is a junior in Arts and Sciences. He is
the present corresponding secretary and
claairman of the Public Issues commit
tee for Student Council.
"If I couldn't do the job I wouldn't be
running," said Rich Meier as he explained
that he felt the vice president's job should
be one of communications.
He said that he felt it was the vice
president's main job to have a good com
munication system between student gov
ernment and the student body and be
tween both of these groups and the facul
ty. Meier said that the new government's
primary concern next year would be with
getting the new constitution to work.
Rich pointed out that he would be es
pecially capable in communicating with
the student body and the faculty because
Arts & Science Candidates Interview
Thirty-six candidates are
running for nine seats as rep
resentatives of the Arts & Sci
ences College.
The Dailv Nebraskan inter
viewed the candidates to find
out why they are running and
what they think some of the
specific problems or jobs are
that student government will
have to face next year.
Some type of advisory
board that will bring the stu
dents in closer contact with
their college and faculty and
in closer contact with their
representatives was one of
the most popular ideas sug
gested by many of these can
didates. Phil Boardman, sophomore,
said that he felt that because
of the new representation only
by colleges some type of ar
rangement was going to nave
to be made so that students
can be in closer contact with
their representatives.
He also pointed out that he
wanted to set up an advisory
board that will bring the stu
dents into closer contact with
the faculty.
Mqiqf, Toiife
Carlton Clark, sophomore,
also said that be would like
to set up an Arts & Sciences
board or a personal board to
be in closer contact with the
Randy Kohlmeier, sopho
more, had some specific ideas
for an advisory board.
"I would like to organize a
student advisory board that
would have 2 freshmen repre
sentatives, two sophomore,
three junior, and three senior.
So if anybody had any com
plaints to make about Arts &
Sciences or suggestions they
come to the board and pos
sibly actually get some or
ganized action on their com
plaints," Kohlmeier said.
Pat Unthank, freshman,
also said that student govern
ment had to improve com
munications between the rep
resentatives, the student body
and the faculty.
Sally Morrow, first semes
ter junior, suggested that all
the Arts & Sciences represen
tatives should meet at least
twice a semester with that
college's faculty and discuss
of his former experience on the Daily
Nebraskan and in covering the Constitu
tional Convention.
He said that one of the first problems
the new government was going to face
was making the budget work and receiv
ing support from all the students.
"It seems to me that Larry Frolik is
at the present time the front runner, in the
vice president's race," he said, "but I
feel that since we are setting up a new
system of student government and need
new ideas and concepts, we need a vice
president unlike Frolik who does not have
his ideas predicated on experience in the
old system and who will not be prejudiced
to the old system."
"I want to see how strong we can
make student government because the
stronger it is the more things we can ac
complish," he stressed.
Meier is a junior in Arts & Sciences
and has a 5.7 average. He lives in Cather
Hall and is a staffwriter for the Daily
Nebraskan and historian of Palladian.
Andy Taube stressed the fact that he
is running for. both vice president and
"I'm running," he said, "because I
think I can implement my ideas best as
vice president, but I am a sophomore and
if I'm not elected vice president I would
like to try and implement my ideas as a
Taube explained that he would like to
make next year a stepping stone to the
day when important issues will come up
and the administration will say what does
student government think about this or
what does the Senate think we should do.
He pointed out that this year's Coun
cil has been bogged down with too much
committee work to meet all the needs of
the students of the University. Specific
problems that Taube felt the Student As
sociation should work on next year includ
ed student parking, joining national stu
dent associations, forming college advis
ory boards and improving the Univer
sity's counseling service.
"Several student government commit
tees such as the Nebraska Student Gov
ernment or the Big Eight Student Govern
ment committee need to be made a lot
more effective," he pointed out.
"I have some concrete ideas that I
feel could be implemented and I think I
could work with either of the two presi
deatial candidates," he said.
Taube is a sophomore in Arts & Sci
ences and has a 6.7 average. He is sec
retary of Sigma Chi Fraternity and as a
present Student Council member he is
chairman of the Peace Corps Committee.
He is president of Phi Eta Sigma, IFC
public relations chairman and holds a
Regent's scholarship.
Bruce Eickhoff, freshman,
said that there was no rea
son why the senators couldn't
keep in better contact with
the different living units and
find out the opinions, ideas
and grievances of their con
stituents. "Student government," said
Andy Kaulins, freshman,
"should work at improving
the quality of professors and
increasing t h e relationships
of the students with the facul
ty in general."
Ron Pfeifer, freshman,
mentioned an advisory board,
but he also said that if he was
elected he would try to in
crease the recreational facil
ities and work on the park
ing problem.
"I think we should look into
problems such as the lighting

a lot of work.
