    ASUN's fall reireaf
gives few solutions
The problems of student
government were discussed last
weekend at ASUN's fall
retreat, but few solutions were
offered, according to ASUN
Pres. Steve Fowler.
The retreat at Esther K.
Newman Camp south of
Omaha "wasn't as successful as
we had hoped," Fowler said.
"Personally, I wish more
senators had come and had
stayed longer." About 20 of
the 33 senators were present at
the Friday and Saturday
discussions, he s aid.
Some of the basic
functional problems of ASUN
that were discussed included
communication and
understanding among senators
and the information flow from
Senate . committees to the
Senate, Fowler said.
Although scheduled to be
discussed Senate priorities for
the year weren't designated, he
continued. Specific projects for
the year will be worked out in
Senate committee meetings
open to the student body,
Fowler said.
Senators were asked to
check a list of priorities on a
handout at the retreat, he
added, and educational reform
and human rights were the
leading priorities picked.
Immediate goals chosen by
the ASUN president are "to try
arid increase the number of
student's working on projects
and to open lines of
communication between
ASUN and other campus
To implement these goals,
Fowler pointed to the liaison
committee recently formed
between campus organizations
and ASUN where
representatives have access to
Senate minutes and can address
the Senate.
He also mentioned the
speakers bureau which arranges
for ASUN senators to talk to
living units, an information
slide show on ASUN for
freshmen and the
Builders-Union Activities Mart
Sept. 15.
Fowler said his long-range
goals for ASUN include a
program for educational
change, ethnic studies and
scholarship programs to deal
with racism on campus and a
tenants rights program which
"should be an active concern
of ASUN."
However, to complete tne
long-range goals, it is first
necessary to draw students into
ASUN programs, he added.
Greeks claim success
for rush procedures
University of Nebraska
"Greeks"--male and
female--tried new rush
programs this year.
Representatives of both
sororities and fraternities have
pronounced their innovations at
least tentatively successful.
Panhellenic adviser Mrs.
Jane Anderson said that
holding rush week after the
start of classes has worked this
year for sororities.
But a final verdict on the
new rush program cannot be
rendered until all sororities
have evaluated it. Panhellenic
representatives are expected to
discuss the program and vote
on it at their next meeting.
Of 480 prospects registered
for sorority rush, 420 pledged.
Mrs. Anderson called the
figures encouraging, adding

The National Bank of Commerce in Lincoln is a great believer in Big Red.
So this year, we're giving a FREE Go Big Red-Number One poncho to
any student who opens a "Cornhusker" checking account at NBC.
Our ponchos are the color of Memorial Stadium on a football Saturday.
And they'll last as long as Nebraska's black shirts, well known for their
durability. So come in and visit the friendly people at NBC soon.
Stop by the main bank, 13th and 0, or the drive-in patio office at
10th and O. Both are close to campus and both offer you FREE Big Red
ponchos when you open your "Cornhusker" checking account. the

that ranneuenic s main
concern is to place every
rushee in a house.
Mrs. Anderson said the main
disadvantage of holding
sorority rush week during the
school year is the added
confusion which may prohibit
helping each rushee with her
individual problems.
Fraternities tried a summer
pledging program for the
second straight year. Each
house could pledge up to 30
men during the summer, ten
more than last year.
Fraternities took 349
summer pledges. The formal
rush week, August 27-30,
added 163.
The revised fraternity rush
program was also termed a
success by Terry Braye,
Inter-Fraternity Council rush
Braye said the objective of
summer pledging programs is
to eventually get away
completely from formal rush
This year, for the first time,
fraternity rushees were housed
in fraternity houses during rush
week. This change reduced the
$30 fee paid in past years for a
dorm room to the S 1 2 charged
this year by IIC.
Braye said fraternities were
trying to pive rushees a realistic
picture of living conditions in
faternity houses at the

women's guide
Information on "How to
Improve Your College Came in
Only Fifteen Minutes" is
included in a UNL group's new
women's handbook,
"Everywoman Speaks,"
according to UNL student Jane
Cummins, one of its authors.
"This is not a Women's
Liberation handbook,"
Cummins stressed, but rather a
guide containing information
commonly needed by women
on campus.
Explanations about the
Women's Resource Center, the
Women's Studies Course and
the Women's Rights
Committee are contained in
the handbook, Cummins said,
as well as information on
scholarships, health care, day
care centers, counseling centers
and women's organizations.
It also includes an article
depicting the status of women
students at the University,
comparing their numbers,
grade point averages,
scholarships, living conditions,
etc. with men students, she
Published for the first time
this year, free copies are
available to every woman
student on campus, Cummins
said. The 30-page pamphlet
was written and compiled by
members of the University
Women's Action Group
(UWAG), and printed with
money from ASUN, she
"Copies will be taken to
women's dormitories and
sorority houses, but we can't
afford to mail them to
off-campus women," Cummins
said, adding that copies will be
left in the UWAG office and
Women's Resource Center,
when the center opens, for
women who do not live in
dormitories or sororities.
