College cowboys compete in annual rodeo contest Not many students bring their horse with them when they come to college. But those who do are probably com peting in the eleventh annual University of Nebraska rodeo this Friday and Saturday. About 200 students who are week end cowboys or cowgirls and who represent colleges and universities in Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Kansas as well as the University of Nebraska will compete ri the event sponsored by the NU Kodco Club. There will be bucking broncos to ride either with saddle or without. "'' 'ere will be calves to rope, Brahma bulls to ride and steers to wrestle, .here will also be a doctor and am bulance on hand. STEER WRESTLING -or bull digging, as they say down on the ranch is a particularly exciting event. The cowboy jumps from his horse and grabs the horns of a 600 piind steer which Is running at top s;eed. The object is to stop the steer and get it on the ground. All of the time I cowboy is racing against the clock. Four seconds is considered a y iod time. In the bronc riding events, the cowboy not only has to complete an eight-second ride, but he Is also scored on how well he rides and how well the hsrse bucks. ; Tho girls' events are a little tamer. There is barrel racing, break away taping and goat tying. , "Jt gets kind of comical at times, says Ann Wendell, one of the rodeo club members. "Sometimes the goats are so big that it is hard for the girl to get them down." The object is to rope the goat, then catch it and tie three of it's legs together. MISS WENDELL Is one of the students who has her horse here. The rodeo club has pens and a practice arena on East Campus where she works with her horse every day.

ASUN candidates During the past week, the Pally Nebraskan attempted to contact all the student senatorial candidates from -the graduate college, engineering and architecture, agriculture and home economics and business administra tion. The candidates were asked to give their qualifications for Student Senate, and ideas concerning the role of this body and the role of students in the affairs of their college and the university. Graduate College Gayle Nelson, a dentistry student, said that his role as a senator would be to "get graduate students in terested in college affairs" and to "allow the dental college to express its wishes through me to the Student Senate." NELSON, WHO lists "an interest in the politics of the University as they relate to the decision-making hierarchy," as one of his qualifica tions for the Senate, sees a trend "toward more student say-so," in the University's affairs, but feels, "Nebraska is behind." "The Board of Regents said we are not ready for a Black Studies program here at many other universities, this statement would have caused an explosive reaction," Nelson said. Terry Cisler, a freshman in the col lege of dentistry, said that in the past, dentistry "has not been well represented" on ASUN. and also, that dentistry students "have become isolated from campus issues." Cisler, who has served as a graduate assistant at Schramm Hall, said that decision-making at the University is "largely administrative now." "I TAKE the moderate position that decisions should be made through the combined efforts of students and ad ministrators." Cisler said. "I'm pleased with the progress that has recently been made toward this."

The new contract was written by eight University fraternities which were not satisfied with the original contract. The signing date for the contract remains May 2 In order for houses to display it during Rush Week. The new contract eliminates the specific listing of practices used to haze pledges and instead simply -, y&f' i Student Senate and dentistry, Bruce Cochrane, a candidate from dentistry, said the two "are not related," and that "the deans and the presidents of the four classes in dentistry can run our own ship fairly well." Asked why he was running for Senate, Cochrane answered, "Most issues are student oriented, not col lege oriented." "Having been in school for 5-going-on-6 years, I feel as 'studenty' as anyone," Cochrane continued. "I have been a senator for a year and have worked to get the reapportionment issue on the ballot." Cochrane added that he feels students should have "an equitable voice in the academic com munity." MARY PIPER, a dental hygiene student, said that there were not too many things Student Senate could do to improve education in the dental college, except possibly lobby for more money to hire more ' instruc tors. "The University is here to educate students," Miss Piper said, "so students should have at least an equal if not a majority of the decision mak ing voice. Primarily, the faculty should help the students in making the decisions and not vice-versa." "There is not a lot the Senate can do specifically to improve education in the graduate college, or other col leges, until the focus of the University is changed," Randy Prior, a first year law student, said. "And one of the planks of the SIP platform (which Prier represents) is to change the ' University from a manufacturing type of institution to one that focuses on the individual." Prier said that students lack the expertise to dictate on matters of educational technique, but added that since they are part of the system and. they react to it, their ideas should be listened to as decisions are made in University policy. PRIER SAID that student states that hazing will be prohibited where it is defined as "mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harrassment or ridicule." AN ADDED POINT In the new con tract which does not appear in the original document prohibits the sub jecting of any pledge to personal servitude. The two points of the new contract which met the most opposition from IFC members who supported the original contract were a clause which stipulated that an IFC adviser must accompany the IFC executives on in vestigations of violations and another clause which provided that a contract could be revoked only If two-thirds of IFC voted for revocation. "The accompaniement clause simp ly means that houses signing the con tract don't Intend to live by it," Sid Logemann, Sigma Nu representative, said. "If you are sincere in signing the contract, why should you care who comes to observe?" "We want safeguards in investiga tion so that a group of students alone cannot revoke the contract," Stu Sorenson, president of Phi Delta Theta, one of the author houses, replied. Ron Gierhan, IFC adviser, pointed out that by Including him in In vestigation procedures the council automatically Involves the Office of Student Affairs. Dick Holman of Sigma Alpha Epsilon commented that Student Af fairs performs a service In tills capacity and shouldn't be feared. John Jarchow, Delta U p s 1 1 o n representative, moved that the con tract be amended to delete the ac companiment clause and replace it with "permission of the IFC ad viser." Jarchow's motion passed by a vote of 16-9. However, when all points of the contract had been approved, Sorenson moved that the accompani ment clause be re-inserted into the contract. His motion then carried by 12-10 with three abstentions. Sorenson also favored the two-thirds majority for revocation of the con tract. "BECAUSE REVOCATION is tan tamount to removing pledging" privileges," he said, "there should be a resounding ' disapproval by IFC before a contract is revoked." According to Jarchow. the two thirds majority rule would mean that eight houses could effectively band together and run IFC. A motion was made to amend the clause to read that a "simple majority of IFC" would revoke the contract. The motion passed 13-12. The council then voted on the new contract In its entirety and adopted it by a vote of 18-5 with two abstentions. express participation In the decision-making process could take the form of "voic ing opinions on committees, voting or working with others to generate creative Ideas. The Senate, through it3 legislative liaison committee, should work harder to raise the budget, according to can didate Roger Roemmich, a graduate student in accounting. "Since November, some colleges have had their funds frozen, making it impossible to recruit new instruc tors," Roemmich said. Roemmich, who has been an Abel Hall floor president, and has served in interdormitory government, also said that the policy whereby the Nebraska legislature determines which professors are granted tenure should be ended. DYKE ANDERSON, formerly a candidate from the graduate college, withdrew because of a conflict on Wednesday afternoons. The Nebraskan was unsuccessful in contacting one candidate from the graduate college, Nancy Ryan.

Executive slate only endorses candidates Because they believe that campus political parties have a negative in fluence on student government, Bill Chaloupka, Diane Theisen and Brent Skinner are running on an executive slate and merely endorsing senate and advisory board candidates. Chaloupka says that these last two years have shown that the senate does not funelion as well when senators are elected on the basis of formal party organization. The Chaloupka T h e 1 s e nSkinner philosophy of student government Is based on the statement that the "rules which govern student life should be the responsibility of students." FOR EXAMPLE, each dormitory should decide its own regulations and each student (with his parents if he is a minor) should be able to decide where and under what circumstances he should live. "In the past, there has been an Inability to work with these issues," he said. "None of the other executive candidates have had as much ex perience in dorm government." Chaloupka has served as president of Harper Hall and as an IDA representative. He has also been a student assistant. As an ASUN senator representing the college of engineering and architecture, Chabupka has been a member of the ASUN executive board and chairman of the reapportionment committee. WITH REGARD to social visitation and housing regulations, the platform' states that "social regulations fail to serve students ... all of these decisions must eventually be the responsibility of the smallest possible groups of students. ASUN has as little justification to make social policy as the administration." The state's platform also mentions concern in the following areas: the faculty evaluation book should be placed under the Publications Board. It should have a permanent staff and evaluation should be man datory for ail facuCv members. the Council on Student Life (CSL) is seen as "a tremendous opportunity for reviewing policies on fees, visita tion, social rules, judicial systems, hours, etc." CSL answers 9nly to the Board of Regents and it composed views; "To generate student support for the creation of a separate college of architecture," is the reason Dave Murphy, a fourth-year architecture student seeks a senatorial position. Murphy, who said he was on the committee that proposed it, said that the proposed college for environmen tal design could not be accredited if the school of architecture continueJ to exist as part of the college of engineering. "THIS NEW college would be no help to us if it weren't accredited," Murphy said. He explained that a graduate of a non-accredited school must intern twice as long (8 years) as an accredited school graduate before he could apply for his pro fessional license. Dan Lawler, an engineering student, said that the Senate could improve education in his college by working toward the separation of engineering and architecture. "If architecture were a separate college, they could implement Continued on Page 3 of seven students and six other members from the faculty or ad ministration. ASUN. THROUGH the Human Rights Committee, should offer assistance to the Afro-American Col legiate Society and other minority students in attempts to improve their situation at the University and in Lincoln. in education, students need better methods for initiating reform. A change from the semester to the quarter system, expanding the op tional pass-fail privilege, re evaluating counciling and advising programs and instituting additional curriculum revisions should be in vestistated. "There's a need for curriculum revision. Some courses need to be changed, others dropped or added. This should be Investigated and the suggestions acted upon," Chaloupka said. lllllllllllllllllllll!llllllllllilil!lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllltlllllillj On campus I today People to People and the United Methodist Ministries foundation will sponsor an African night program at the Hungry Id this Saturday night.
