SDS Enters ASUN Elections
To Raise Student Voice, Issues
By Mick Lowe
Senior Staff Writer
The Students for a Demo
cratic Society (SDS) have
entered the ASUN elections
largely to "raise issues," ac
cording to SDS president
George Olivarri.
"By the time a person is
old enough to become a col
lege student," Olivarri stated,
"he is old enough to take care
of his own life."
"We think that students
should actively participate in
decisions which affect his own
life. Up until now this hasn't
been possble," Olivarri con
tinued. Student Voice
Consequently, the SDS cam
paign platform has as its ob

tor of the Daily Nebraskan
through a campus-wide elec
tion. 2. Election of the Nebraska
Union Board.

Bill of Rights "as written."
4. Support of a student mem
ber of the Board of Regents,

should be limited to mem
bers. 7. Free bus service between
East Campus and City Cam

sity Health Center doctors
and should be denied coeds
only for medical reasons.
(Not because of age or mari

Advisory Board Petitions
Require 25 Signatures
Applications for positions
on three student advisory
boards are presently avail
able in the ASUN office in
the Nebraska Union, accord
ing to Mel Schlacter, chair
man of the ASUN Advisory
Boards committee.
He stated that the applica
tions, which are for the
Teachers, Arts and Sciences,
and Agricultural College Ad
visory Boards, are due by
noon, Friday, March 24.
To be eligible fur one of the
three boards, a candidate
must be a full-tim student
of the college. There are six
positions open on the Arts
and Sciences and Teachers
Boards, and eight on the
Agriculture Board.
"Each candidate must run
in a specific department or
division in their college,"
Schlacter said.
Along with their applica
tion, they must submit a pe
tition of 25 signatures from
students in their college," he
A candidate of undeclared
major in Arts and Sciences
should declare what depart
ment he has accumulated the
most hours on his applica
tion. Schlacter noted that the
constitution for the Agricul
ture Board would be ap
proved at the same time as
the election of Its members
on Apr. 12.
The Agriculture Board is
similar to that of the Teach
ers and Arts and Science in
construction, except that
Schlacter noted "that the
members of the board each
represent one of eight areas
of college majors and the
number of people each mem-,
ber would represent therefore
varies significantly."
He said that the campaign
regulations for board candi
dates are similar to those of
ASUN candidates except that
Advisory Board candidates
are limited to $20 in expenses.

personnel who reside in stu

Schlacter concluded by not
ing that upon the approval of
the Agricultural Advisory
Board, that only the Engi
neering, Business Adminis
tration and Home Economics
Colleges would be without
similar boards.
"I am, however, confident
that by next fall, advisory
boards will be established in
these three colleges."

Student Bill of Rights
passed the first hurdle in the
ratification process late
Wednesday night as ASUN
approved all 16 articles after
some changes in the Student
Conduct Committee proposal,
to be presented to University
students in the Senate elec
tions April 12.
Lengthy Debate
After a lengthy debate, the
Senate voted 27-8 to include
an alternative amendment on
the ballot with the original
Article five, the controversial
housing statement.
Students will either vote for
the original article, or for the
alternative amendment, or
they may reject both amend
ments. The original article states
that "students have the right

is Mimi Rose. The key com

varri.) Selective Service

dents by grade for use by the
Selective Service.
16. The establishment of a
"scholar in residence',' to be
elected by students for a term
of one year.
More planks may be added
to the platform later, accord
ing to Dennis Bartels, SDS'
ASUN second vice presiden
tial candidate.
Unanimous Approval
All SDS candidates will run
on the above platform, since
it was approved unanimously
by SDS members at Tuesday
night's meeting.
Several SDS candidates
have not filed, according to
Olivarri, because they are
running from Graduate Col
lege, and have had trouble
finding 35 people to sign their
make-up of the cast, Weerts
reported. The other members
of the make-up crew are
Rick Marsh, Bobbie Kier
stead, and Ellie Petersen.
"The make-up for most of
the cast is fairly simple,"
Miss Peterson said. "The
only difference from ordinary
stage make up is that the eye
makeup on the girls will be
Cast Instructed On Makeup
"We have instructed most
of the members of the cast
on how to make themselves
up but the make-up crew will
make-up the leads and
character roles," she added.
Miss Peterson said that she
didn't foresee any major
problems in the make-up as
pect of the show. "There will
be one point in the play
where some of the men will
have to make up on stage,
however. The men supposed
ly have been on a raft sev-.
eral days and since there
isn't time for a scene change
they will have to put on
beards without the audience'
being aware of it."
"Tickets are still on sale in
the Nebraska Union and from
Kosmet Klub workers,"
Weerts announced. "There
will be 2 a.m. women's hours
on Friday," be added.
to choose their own living en
vironment." Alternative
The alternative amend
ment, proposed by Sen. Dick
Schulze, states students have
"the right to an equitable role
in formulation of housing pol
icy which allows maximum
individual choice."
Presenting the alternative
amendment, Schulze said,
"there is sufficient contro
versy on article five, that the
students should be allowed to
have a choice in their deci
sion." Sen. Jerry Olson argued
the amendment was "com
pletely redundant." He said
article four, which gives stu
dents "equitable participation
in University policy-making
decisions" would cover the
statements presented in
Schulze's amendment.
juniors and women over 21.
According to Miss Rose,
"there are several problems
to be faced if many more
women have keys and one is
lost." "The probability for
this would certainly in
crease," she added.
For example, the cost of
replacing a cylinder and keys
if more than one key were
lost would be extremely high,
Miss Rose continued.
"I am quite confident that
the key system will be ex
panded before next year,"
Miss Rose stated, "however,
the actual mechanism for this
expansion remains to be
worked out."

The alternative amendment
infers that freshmen may not
have a choice in housing mat
ters, Sen. Sue Phelps ar
gued. Selection of their own liv
ing quarters would not be a
right for freshmen but a privi
lege, she said, "and this is
against the whole vein of the
Bill of Rights."
ASUN Second Vice-President
Bob Samuelson said the
alternative amendment is not
redundant but "talks about
working toward specific
Philosophical Stand
Many senators are not cer
tain whether to favor a
"philosophical stand or a
practical stand," and this de
cision is "of such magnitude
that the students should de
cide the question.
Article one of the bill was
approved unanimously after
the Senate passed a substi
tute preamble, presented by
senator Curt Bromm.
Bromm said certain words
in the original preamble
"might possibly reflect the
wrong image" to the other
groups which must ratify the
Bill, such as the Board of Re-
gents and the Faculty Com
mittee on Student Affairs.
Substitute Preamble
The substitute preamble
doesn't have a "change in
meaning," he said, but it is
"less offensive."
Sen. Al Spangler countered
that the new preamble "is
less firm, and less attrac
tive." The substitute preamble
was approved by a vote of
ASUN unanimously
approved the original Article
two and four and approved
the original Article three by
a vote of 30-2.
Original Form
Articles six, seven and
eight were also approved by
the senate in the original
After incorporating an
amendment into Article nine,
, the senate unanimously
passed the article.
Proposed by Schulze as a
"safeguard for the student

operation next fall, the
amendment added that stu
dents have the right "to
broadcast" without censor
ship. Articles 11, 12
The original statements of
Articles eleven and twelve
were also passed.
Article ten was approved
unanimously after being
amended by Samuelson.
Sen. Dave Snyder argued
the article is unclear because
"University facilities" are not
defined. He added that "fa
cilities" could include any
thing the University owns.
Koi.Jet Klub members prepare
dress rehearsal.
Of Rights;
After a long debate and sev
eral votes, the senate passed
Article 13 33-1 with 2 absten
tions. The article was amended
by Samuelson to clarify the
student's legal position in dis
ciplinary actions.
Sen. James Hubbard said
under article 13 students can
still submit themselves to
University disciplinary ac
tions if they so desire. He
said if a student feels he has
been unfarly treated by Uni
versity officials in disciplin
ary matters "he has a re
course in the local courts."
Employee Unions
Amendment 14 stating that
students employed by the
University have the right to
form student employee unions
The amendment passed af
ter having been once de
feated. The original amend
ment simply said that stu
dents have the right to form
student unions, but was de
feated when various senators
expressed fears that student
unions could be more destruc
tive than constructive in na
ture. A Samuelson - amendment
changed the article to its
. present form.
'We've Got'
Miss Bitner, in voicing her
support of the proposal, noted
that this amendment "is one
of the legal rights we've got"
and urged its passage.
She also pointed out that
the University did not come
under the minimum wage law
and student unions would be
one way to achieve more
equitable wages.
Amendment 15, which in es
sence denies ASUN the right
to rule on substance when
recogniting student organiza
tions, passed overwhelmingly
after a Senseney motion al
lowing ASUN to rule on sub
stance was defeated.
Watchful Eye
Senseney argued that stu
dents should have enough
faith in student government
to allow them such jurisdic
tion, but Schulze urged that
it was not "ASUN's job
to keep a watchful eye on any
organization ... the students
should watch."
"This is one place." he con
tinued, "where college stu
dents should start growing
' Amendment 16, allowing
students to participate in ac
tivities provided meet the re
quirements of that organiza
tion, passed unanimously.
Grade Point
Schulze explained, "It's
about time students make up
their minds if they can en
gage in activities regardless
of their grade point average."
