Left out in the cold by the major
bowl games, the Nebraska Cornhuskers
have found their place in the Sun (Bowl
The Huskers voted unanimously Mon
day to accept an invitation to play
Georgia in the Sun Bowl on Dec. 20
at El Paso, Tex.
The bowl decision was something of
a disappointment to most members of
the team after it had been reported
by bowl officials that the winner of
the Nebraska-Kansas State game would
land a spot in one of the more prestigous

who played one of the best games of
his career against Kansas State, said
I he team was naturally disappointed
about not going to a major bowl.
"Information leaked out that if we
beat Kansas State we would be con
sidered for a major bowl," he said.
"After doing the job on Kansas State
we found out things changed a bit."
"We have worked hard all season and
I feel we deserve to go to a bowl
game," Liggett added. "All we have
to do now is to go down and beat
the Georgia Bulldogs."
Paul Topliff, starting offensive tackle,
said the team was disappointed when
it heard the news about the bowl situa
tion. "But things changed after we heard
the whole story about the Sun Bowl."

A victory over Oklahoma at Norman
on Saturday would give Nebraska at
least a tie for the Big Eight cham

would give the Huskers sole possession
of the title.
Team members aren't going along
with the Idea that they will suffer a
letdown because of the bowl situation.
Husker kicking specialist Paul Rogers
said there wouldn't be one. Instead, ho
thought the team would have more In

show people that Nebraska has more

The Vietnam Moratorium In
Washington D.C. last weekend brought
together about a half million people
united under a common, anti-war goal.
Most of the marchers, however, had
little hope of directly changing United
States policy in Vietnam.
About 100 Nebraskans went to the
November demonstration. Most of them
were students and all of them were
young. Some were caught up in the
excitement of the event, some were
discouraged, others were warmed by the
unitv and helpfulness of the people.
"the mood In Washington was neither
festive nor glum." Dale Kennedy, a
University of Nebraska student, said
Tuesday. "The people were there for
a purpose, but they didn't let that
purpose consume their whole person."
Few people really believed they were
accomplishing something, Kennedy
"Nixon didn't announce a cease-fire
after the march, but everyone sensed
their was a greatness in the demonstra
tion," he added.
"Everyone felt that what we were
doing was right. It was a moral ac
complishment. In a sense we were
crusading for a cause that was right.
Beautiful Is the only word to describe
it, a beautiful experience."
None of the Nebraskans were overly
critical of the Washington police and
some praised the officers.
The three outbursts of violence which
marred the otherwise peaceful three-day
iemonstration were caused by yippies,
members of a women's living unit would
want to get together and abolish hours,
Specifically, the enactment reads, "
. . . rules and regulations with respect
to social and non-academic affairs of
the students shall not discriminate
against any student on the basis of race,
creed and sex."
Chaloupka, along with council
members Ed Icenogle, Randy Prier,
Rich Page feel that women's hours are
discriminatory and should be abolish
ed. The policy statement, approved
without dissent, was introduced by Ice
nogle and amended by Prier.
"This is a broad statement of goals
which will have a bearing on all subse
quent matters the CSL acts on," he
continued. "The statements will assist
in setting guidelines, goals and

Nebraskan Staff Writer
The Council on Student Life decided
Tuesday to consider an ASUN request
to study how the Athletic Department
fits into the University's administrative
The study was also requested by Dan
Goodenberger, president of Farm House
fraternity and president of Corn Cobs.
The request came as a result of the
Athletic Department's part in closing
a Student Activities approved concession
stand during the Homecoming game.
At Tuesday's meeting Lincoln cam
puses President Joseph Soshnik in
troduced the CSL's new chairman Dean
John Robinson, Associate Dean of the
College of Arts and Sciences. Soshnik
said he had regretfully accepted the
resignation of former CSL chairman Dr.
John Davis, dean of the College of
Engineering and Architecture. According
to Soshnik, Davis resigned because of
work conflicts. In his letter of resigna
tion Davis reportedly said the council
the Weatherman faction of Students for
a Democratic Society tSDS), and White
Panthers, a militant group from Detroit,
according to the Nebraskans.
"Considering that the police had to
disperse the crowd In those instances,"
Kennedy said, "they acted fairly."
Mike Hayman, another University
student who travelled to Washington and
who also went to Chicago for the October
SDS demonstrations, agreed.
"The Washington police were so much
better than the Chicago cops," he said.
"In Chicago the cops beat kids just
for being anywhere near the demonstration."

Since ' the CSL has no adopted
parlimentary proceedure, new chairman
John W. Robinson, associate dean of
the College of Arts and Sciences, agreed
to postpone other agenda items to permit
consideration of the enactment.
The policy simply restates the equal
protection clause of the United States
constitution, according to Council
member Randy Prier.
"Equality between the races and sexes
is a concept that the University hs
generally been rather stringet in apply
ing," Chaloupka said.
Icenogle said the enactment is intend
ed as a general statement not aimed
at a specific situation, although the
policy will be applicable to all areas
of student life.
required more time and energy than
he could devote to it.
The council also heard reports by the
chairmen of the Student Affairs Sub
committees on Student Organizations
and on Student Publications. Following
the reports, motions were passed to form
study groups comprised of three CSL
members and subcommittee members
to study the composition and relevance
of the subcommittees.
Dr. Russell Brown, chairman of the
Student Organizations Subcommittee,
said that his group okays constitutions
of student organizations. He said that
although his subcommittee has the
power to deny student groups the right
to organize, it has never used this power
under his chairmanship.
CSL student member Randy Prier
asked Brown if the subcommittee's
power to veto the constitutions of student
organizations was "a correct function,
if that's the way they (the student
gioup) want it?"

Both Kennedy and Hayman felt police
and press estimates of the number of
marchers were less than the actual
number there. Washington police Chief
Jerry V. Wilson issued a "modest
estimate of 250,000, while most
newspapers said 300,000 marched.
The New Mobilization Committee
estimated 1.5 million and a Washington
radio station said there were 800,000
demonstrators In Washington. Kennedy
and Hayman said the numbers fluc
tuated between 500,000 and one million.
The demonstration was policed by New
Mobe marshals as well as WaslUngton
"I have certain strong feelings about
certain areas, such as women's hours
regulations, and I'm sure many of the
Council members have similar feelings
about other areas. But this policy applies
to all areas," Icenogle said.
Robinson emphasized that he was in
agreement with the motives and desires
of the enactment, but he was hesitant
about approving it hurridly.
"If we're going to establish statements
for the future, it is not proper to run
it off and produce it in the middle
of a meeting," he said. "Our continuous
concern should be to improve the quality
of student life."
The enactment had been written by
Icenogle before the meeting, but had
not been distributed to all members of

sufficient time to study it," commented
John W. Goebel, an assistant professor
af business law and a council member.

Icenogle also submitted another policy
statement concerning student self
determination. It was delayed until next
week's CSL meeting.
Robinson emphasized that he is in

resolution, but said that the council
