the Voting Rights Bill of 1965
and condemning the amend

The Voting Rights reso

that "Americans are being

the Greeks and Independents
and isolation of the city and
east campuses by rallying
them all together in certain
He named two specific pro
grams he felt would do this.
First by joining various or
ganizations on campus togeth
er in planning a program for
the 1967 Nebraska Centennial,
this program would show the
part the University has played
in Nebraska's history.
His second program to rally
the campus together is a pub
lic relations and cohesive proj
ect that will try to join the
various alumni and interested
University organizations
throughout the state in help
ing and backing the Univer
sity. Poppert, too, of course, sug
gested things which he would
like to do if elected, but most,
majority of senators and the
governor approved further
spending. j

Among resolutions passed
at the state YR convention
was one recommending the
introduction of a bill that
would propose a state con
stitutional convention.
The present constitution was
called "a legal hodge-podge
of baffling patchwork of 40
years' making."
The Legislature's Judiciary
committee was urged to use
its authority to introduce such
a bill.

He said a committee should
be devised that will be com
pletely divorced from the As
sociation which will handle
projects such as Masters and
Student discount cards which
don't need to be handled by

Poppert also said he felt
senate members should be
limited to membership on only
one committee and students
from outside the student gov
ernent should help to fill up
the. rest of the positions on
individual committees.
He pointed out that one of
the first and most important
things the Association needed
to do rather than start a lot of
new programs was to compile
the by-laws for the new gov
ernment. Poppert plans on reducing
student apathy by putting stu

committees. Neumeister will
do this by showing the stu

Three things which she men
tioned student government
should work on next year were
student book prices, the li
brary schedule and discrim
ination. Miss Guenzel pointed out
that something is wrong when
both the regent's book prices
and commercial book prices
are the same. She also said
that she felt student govern
ment should be a profit-making
body providing that the
profit is used to help the stu
dents. "This year," she said,
"Council has been thought of
by most of the representa
tives as a non-profit organiza
tion, but it's not an organiza
tion and it does need to make
money in order to carry on
worthwhile investigations and
projects for the students."
She said the library should

public relations agent for the
University. He answered by
saying that the tuition situa
tion in the state Legislature
shows that the University's
public relations have fallen
down so it s up to the students
to do what they can in inform
ing the public.
Neumeister was also asked
if it wasn't true that book
prices have been investigated
since 1898 and if it wasn't
true that recreational facili
ties hadn't been improved on
ly because the University
didn't have enough money.
He defended himself by say
ing that book price and rec
reation investigations were
good, if for no other reason
than that they created inter
est and let people know where
the problems are so that
something can eventually be
"No one," Neumeister
stressed, "should be naive to

"We've investigated the book

er accomplished anything.
What we need to Jo is put
more stress on Alpha Phi

government should try to help

Tom Philips, sophomore,
said the new government was
i going to have to be ilexiDJe
to meet the many problems
that will arise.
One of the first problems he
foresaw is the lax wording in
the constitution especially
concerning the duties of the
president and vice president.
Lincoln independents' parti
cipation in campus activities
is one area that Pam Wood,
freshman, said she thought
student government should
work on next year.
Kristin Bitner, freshman,
put improving communica
tions between the Teachers
College representatives and
the students high on her list
of things she would like to
do if elected.
She said that some type of
bulletin board or suggestion
box could be used in the col
lege to improve these com
munications. will be presented to the

them to students' attention."
Poppert was questioned Just
as hard as Neumeister. He
was asked what the difference
would be between his outside
students on government
committees and the Associ
ates. He answered that the
associates will be moving
around from one committee
to another and the other stu
dents will just stay in one

He was asked how he could
possibly plan a new govern

"We need more controversi

John Scholl, sophomore.
He also said that some t
of evaulation system that
would appraise courses, teach
ers and materals wa leeded
in Teachers College.
Ron Neel, junior, saiJ he
would like to start .a Teach
ers College discussion' board
to represent the students in
this college.
Rebecca (Becky ) Marshall
said she wanted to see stu
dent government really begin
to govern the students and
molding student opinion rath
er that just being another or
ganization. She pointed out that student
government especially needs
to reflect student opinion in
the area of legislation and
with the Nebraska legislature.
The parking situation and
communications between the
Teachers College representa
tives and the students are
both concerns of Rich (Bum
by) Stangle.
Stangle said he wanted to
start a Teachers College
board where members of the
college could let their repre
sentatives know what they
want and be also wants to in
vestigate the parking situa
tion. Karen Westerberg, sopho
more, said she felt the Stu
dent Welfare Committee
should be expanded. She ex
plained that the student dis

John Dzerk, freshman, men
tioned four areas where he
thought council should take
action next year: the advis

He said that many of the

need to be studied and pos
