he commented. "Then
somebody said, why not?"
NO ONE has set a card

It's getting to be a habit
For the second time this semester the ASUN Senate
Wednesday could not conduct any business because of a
lack of a quorum.
Last Wednesday the student Senate did not have a
quorum for a special session scheduled to consider the
rules for the Aprill 22 ASUN elections.
The special session last week was postponed to Thursday.
However, the Thursday session did not have a quorum
and ASUN First Vice President Diane Theisen accepted
votes by proxy and by telephone to pass the election rules.
