Senate holding Union purse strings?
Logemann doubts feasibility of
ASUN-named board members
by Susan Jenkins
Nebraskan Staff Writer
It wouldn't be feasible to
e'low ASUN to appoint Union
board members, according to
Union president Sid
Logemann.
Logemann also said there
would be "no big problem" in
con flicting programming
between the two organiza
tions. "The Union Board oversees
the Union Program Council,
and it is necessary for those
involved in programming to
know what they are doing,"
Logemann said.
IF THE UNION Board is
required to decide whether to
commit major funds to a
program, it would be a very
hard decision for members
who had no programming
experience, Logemann said.
Logemann's viewpoint is
representative of the view
held by Union-affiliated staff
and students concerning the
possible attempt by ASUN to
take over distribution of
student activity fee funds.
Speculation concerning this
move began with the evolu
tion of the Senate's recent
Government Bill 24, which
would in effect give the
Senate the power of the purse
swings over several of the
present Student Affairs
subsidized organizations.
"It seems to me there
should be no big problem,"
Logemann said. "ASUN's
complaint is based on the
premise that people who pro
pram in Union or serve on the
Union Board have a somehow
different view of those func
t'ons than the 'normal' stu
dent." "THIS SAME complaint is
made for students who work
their way up in the Union
programming structure to
serve on the Union Program
Council," he said.
The Union Board of
Managers, of which
Tx)gemann is also president,
is the governing body of the
Nebraska Union.
Refered to as Union Board,
the body is. solely responsible
for space assignment in the
Nebraska Union Building, is
in charge of house rules and
other necessary building
policy, and decides who may
use the facility.
A fixed amount of student
fee funds is alloted to the
Union, and is distributed
within the Union with the ap
proval of the Board. Although
the Nebraska Union receives
$11 for each student's fees,
only $4.50 of that amount is
budgeted, with the rest going
ti pay off the bonds issued for
the 1959 and 1968 building ad
ditions, according to Darryl
P. Swanson, assistant director
of the Union.
THE BOARD is composed
of seven members, with
students holding a four-to-three
voting majority,
IiOgemann said. Student
members are Logemann,
Dave B u n t a i n and Susan
Jenkins, representing the City
Campus Union, and Gail
Skinner, representing the
East Campus Union.
Faculty Board members
are Dr. James T. Horner,
chairman of the Agricultural
Education Department, and
Dean Robert L. Hough of the
Arts and Sciences College.
Union director Alen H. Ben
nett U also a member.
THE BOARD elects its own
officers, with the offices
officers, with the offices
"usually going to a student,"
according to Logemann.
"Not all our votes are
unanimous, but we have no
conflict," Logemann said.
"Bennett wants the students
to program and run the Union
as they wish, but there are
certain limitations.
"To keep the physical plant
running, you have to spend
monev." he said. "Conse
quently, we can't spend as
ft i i-m-
$750
much on programming as we
would like." ,
THE UNION should handle
the sole programming func
tion for the University, in
Logemann's opinion.
"Students should have
complete control over student
fees, and thus decide on
Sid
Logemann
direction of the fees," he said.
This could be arranged by
having Union Board and
Program Council serve as
ASUN's "official" program
ming body for the University,
he said.
"I AM not implying that
Union should be under
ASUN," Logemann em
phasized. "The two organiza
tions should be autonomous."
Logemann has given some
thought to the possibility of
ASUN action because of the
senate's complaints about the
structure of the Union.
"If anyone wants to bitch
about Union programming or
organization, he must
automatically assume that
the person in charge of these
operations is not doing as
good a job as possible" he
said.
LOGEMANN SAID that
specific complaints about a
Greek dominated organization
are not a major problem.
"It is true that the Program
Council this year is entirely
Greek, but we began this fall
to try to interest independents
to come into Union," he said.
He said there was a two
fold solution to improve the
"ratio" of greeks to in
dependents. First, the present people in
Union must do "everything"
possible to inform non-Greeks
about the programming and
function of Union and get
them to work and become
part of the structure. Second,
Logemann charged non
Greeks with the task of
emphasizing more the value
of activities in general and
Union in particular.
"IF WE both work together,
all segments of the un
dergraduate population will
be represented," he said.
Logemann also . invited
students with new program
ming ideas to make these
ideas known to Union.
"We have the reputation,

A motion to abolish the 2.0

Wednesday.
Congresswoman Ellen Pil

girls with low grades should

responsibility as well as girls
with higher grades, while
vice-president Nesha
Wiimplster felt that it misfit

on sophomore keys, ine mo

ble," he said.
"If another organization
wishes to undertake a pro
gram and can do as good a
job, we'll adapt to that situa
tion as well by finding
something better to do with
the student funds," he said.
LOGEMANN SATO that
after the new City Campus
addition is paid off, the next
Union need is a new building
on East Campus.
"This is something we need
badly," he said.
East Union manager
Ronald Burrus agreed,
although he said that
"nothing is in the wind" as
far as funds for a possible
new building is concerned.
Burrus said that
student programming in t h e
East Union structure is
similar to that on City Cam
pus, although the two groups
are completely separate.
The four Program Council
officers double as area direc
tors for the group, advising
chairmen and asisstants of
five East Campus Union
Committees.
THESE FIVE are Con
temporary Arts, which
handles East Campus choral
and other musical concerts;
Special Events, which brings
speakers to East Campus;
Campus Life, the Film com
mittee for east Campus;
Recreation, sposoring
tournaments for East Cam
pus; and Public Relations.
"WE HAVE only two
meeting rooms and a lounge
for meetings," Burrus said.
"They are used pretty well
during the day, and at night
the lounge is filled.
"We're not quite as busy as
the City Union, but we still
need a new building," he said.
Crib to host
Cabaret '68
this Sunday
The newly remodeled Crib
will host an entertainment
experience new to the campus
on Sunday at 7:30 as Cabaret
'68 comes to life.
Charles Armstrong,
flamenco and classical
guitarist, has served as pro
ducer for the event.
Armstrong described the
cabaret as a haven of student
power, social and political
commentary in Europe. It has
proved to be an effective and
entertaining way of evading
censorship of criticism in
countries with oppressive
government.
THE CABARET Sunday
will be slightly modified to
"Americanize" the concept,
Armstrong said, because
Americans have different
cultural segments, such as
soul, rock, and folk music
from which to draw. Cabaret
'68 will be based on an in
formal atmosphere with
emphasis on spontaneity and
audience reaction.
EIGHT GROUPS will be
taking part in this unique
entertainment experiment,
including the Spyders, a rock
group; the Impromptu
Theatre Group from Omaha;
Craig Johnson Jazz Trio; the
Local Road, a folk quartet;
Jarvis Green Jazz Quartet;
Bob Bovee, folk soloist; Afro
American Dance Group from
be Sun School of Cultural
Dance in Omaha; and Charlie
Armstrong, fado (Portiguese)
guitar. Frank McClannahan
and Dave Landis will act as
emcees.
All those working with
Cabaret '68 are optimistic
about its success. Armstrong
is worried, not about too few
in attendence, but rather that
the Crib has a capacity of
only 300 and there may be too
many. If it is as much a suc
cess as predicted, there will
be cabarets on a regular basis
next semester, he said.

Finance at IBM
"You're in
an ideal spot
to move ahead fast!1
"I've always figured my chances for ad
vancement would be better in a growth indus
try. That's why I picked IBM," says
Joe Takacs.
Joe's been working in general accounting
since he got his B.B.A. in June, 1 968. He says,
"I read In Business Week that the computer
market is now expanding at about twenty per
cent a year. I wanted to be part of that trend."
Growth wasn't the only reason Joe picked
IBM. He says, "I learned that it's general
practice at IBM to promote from within and to
promote on merit alone. I like that I also like
the fact that in 1967 IBM appointed over 4,000
managers. Which means plenty of opportuni
ties to move up."
The Job Itself
"Another growth factor is the job itself,"
Joe says. "During my first few years, I'll get
experience in a lot of different areas. I'll be
learning how the company is structured and
how it operates on a broad scale. And that's
exactly the kind of knowledge I'll need to
help me qualify for a manager's job.
Looking to the future, Joe sees himself
moving up in general accounting or going
into an area like financial analysis. He says,
"Either way, I'll have a chance to participate
In some pretty important decisions."
Careers in finance at IBM include:
Financial Planning and Control, Financial
Analysis, Accounting, Information Systems,
and internal Auditing. Which one most

Bundy said the University

sophomores to continue their

Some effort has been made
to extend this to the four year
state colleges, but he said
that there was some ap

and no real program had been

NO EFFORT is made to
