serves the interests of the University
community and is well-balanced in its

During the first 30 minutes of the
meeting any member of the University
community can make a five-minute
presentation to the Board, Meyerson said.
In its first meeting this semester, the
Council decided not to make a statement
on the conference Issue but agreed to
instruct its subcommmittee on student
fees to provide the Arbitration Board
with any pertinent information.

policy statement in prescribing any pills.
However, CSL member Debby Loers
said there have been some incidents

The Nebraska Legislature moved Tuesday morning to force
the stalled 1972-73 appropriations bill from the
Appropriations Committee to the floor of the Unicameral.
One a vote of 32-9, senators approved Lincoln Sen. Harold
Simpson's motion to call up the measure, which provides
funds to operate state government for the year beginning July
The committee's bill recommends that the Nebraska receive
$46.3 million from the state's general fund. That figure
represents a $3.2 million increase over the figure allocated to
the University last year.
The $46.3 million recommendation by the committee is
just below Gov. J. James Exon's $47.1 million proposal. Both
are less than the University's request of $50 million.
On a state-wide budget, the committee recommended a
total fiscal budget of $196.5 million. That figure is only
slightly higher than Exon's request which totaled $195.3
The present fiscal year's state operating budget is $188.6
According to Hastings Sen. Richard Marvel, who
encouraged Tuesday's action, the budget has been
substantially ready since Dec. 15. Several attempts, the most
recent being Jan. 13, have failed to advance the bill to the
Five votes are necessary to advance the bill but only four
committee members have sought to do so.
The five members representing the other ideological side
sought instead to force, by motion, a Tuesday afternoon
meeting of the committee and attempt once again to
reconsider the bill.
These five members are Sens. John Savage and David
Svahmer of Omaha, Wayne Ziebarth of Wilcox, E. Thome
Johnson of Fremont and Fern Orme of Lincoln.
The dividing issue seems the flixibility in budgeting. The
four-member minority which includes Marvel, wants budgeting
by programs with specifications as how funds should be spent.
The oppostion opinion which Exon supports,
contends that agencies and departments should be given
money with some flexibility as to how it is spent.
What has especially upset the majority of the members has
been Marvel's refusal to call a meeting of the whole committee
since Jan. 13, and his cancellation of a meeting which had
been scheduled for last Thursday.
Savage moved Tuesday to force a Tuesday afternoon
committee meeting saying he wanted a full committee session
"instead of discussing our problems in the daily press. 'We had
been working together since September and then strangely we
fell apart," Marvel said.
Simpson said the reason he acted to bring the bill out of
committee was so that committee members might "heal the

statement that "some real heavy armtwisting and high level
