MUN delegates
About 450 students from 90 delegations
participated in the Model United Nations
(MUN) Conference held in the Nebraska
Union last Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The students represented 10 different
colleges and included delegates from East
Illinois University and Wichita State
University in Kansas, according to
Secretary-General Patrick Olson, a UNL
Two United Nations (U.N.) diplomats
addressed the MUN General Assembly on
Thursday and Friday in the Union
Centennial Room.
Michael Weston, first secretary of the
British U.N. Mission, discussed the current
conflicts in the Middle East, Northern
Ireland and Britian's U.N. role. Martin F.
Herz, deputy assistant secretary of state in
the Bureau of International Organization
Affairs discussed the U.S. role in the U.N.
and the world.
The five main MUN committees held
meetings on the first two days. According to
UNL student Kirk Hemphill, who
represented Brazil, most committees would
take three issues, present several bills
concering those issues and submit a final
draft of their resolution to the General
Using parliamentary procedure, the
resolutions were then debated and voted on
by the delegates. Hemphill said most of the
time in the General Assembly was spent with
countries trying to influence other countries.
"It reminds me of the Nebraska State
Legislature," he said.
Of the resolutions submitted to the
General Assembly, six were passed. One
measure, concerning sea laws, recommended
that only conventional, defensive,
non-biological weapons be permitted within
a twelve-mile sea limit, and that the sea bed
be completely demilitarized.
Other resolutions condemned South
Africa for its policy of race discrimination,
Portugal for its refusal to recognize the
sovereign independence and right to
self-determination of its third world
colonies, and Israel for its overt aggression in
the June 1967 war against the Arab

Concerning world population, it requested
the World Health Organization to increase its

regent bill
Stressing that "students should know as much about the
quality of education as anyone," Hastings Sen. Richard Marvel
introduced a proposal last Monday for student representation
on the NU Board of Regents.
If the bill, LB323, is passed by the Legislature, a proposed
state constitutional amendment would be placed before the
voters. Should the amendment be added to the constitution,
the present eight-member board would be supplemented by
"not less than one nor more than .three full-time students, of
the University of Nebraska."
The method of selection and term of office would be
determined by the Legislature at a later date. The bill provides
if more than one student member is to serve on the board,
each member would have a fractional vote.
Marvel said he had received considerable support in drafting
and introducing the measure from the ASUN Legislative
Liason Committee.
"Nebraska Wesleyan University is moving into the area of
students on the governing board," he said.
"When we talk about quality education we have to get

Prokop proposes
ag advisory overhaul
University of Nebraska Regent Robert Prokop will request
in March a new Agriculture Advisory Council for the
University. He will make this request because "we (NU) have
at times slighted agriculture," he said during the Regent's
meeting Saturday in Umaha.
Nu President D.B. Varner and Lincoln Regent Ed
Schwartzkopf reacted.
"I don't know what happened during the first 100 years of.
this University," Varner said, "but I would not like the
comment to go unchallenged that we have slighted agriculture
in the three years and two days since I've been here."
Prokop said he was speaking of xhs "general system," not
of anything or any staff member specifically. He said he feels
that as farm population has decreed, sq,ha$ agriculture's
prominence at NU.
Prokop's proposal, which he read Saturday, would have
"the recognized leaders of farmorganizations currently meeting
with Regent Robert Raun's committee replace the current
Agriculture Advisory Committee." That committee now works
with Agriculture College Dean E.F. Frolik.
Raun is meeting with Nebraska farm leaders to discuss the
future of UNL's Agriculture College administrative
They are discussing a legislative proposal backed by many
state farm organizations-that would make the Agriculture
College NU's fourth campus with its own chancellor and UNL
Chancellor James Zumberge's an alternatve plan. The
Zumberge plan would place the college's extension services
under a vice chancellor and leave the resident instruction
under the college dean.
After Prokop read his proposal Schwartzkopf read four
resolutions he'd prepared.
Two of the resolutions commended NU researchers whose
projects, according to the resolution, have reduced the
livestock losses from calf scours by $18-$25 million and
increased wheat yields by $20 million.
The other two resolutions commended the UNL football
team and mearching band on their performances at the New
Year s Day . Orange Bowl. All four resoltuions passed
input from the recipients of education," Marvel said.
Lincoln Sen. Steve Fowler, former ASUN president, said he
will support the measure although he has some reservations
about implementation and legal technicalities.
Fowler termed the bill's provisions "valuable, provided that
the students get to pick their own representative rather than
administrators, regents, legislators or the governor.
"If students themselves can't pick their own regent, then
there. n is a danger that the person picked will hot 'Vea1fyJ
represent student interests" he said.
The freshman state senator also expressed possible legal
problems present in the bill concerning U.S. Supreme Court
"one man, one vote" guidelines.
"If students vote for a student regent and are qualified
electors to vote for a regular regent they are voting twice," he
The bill will be referred to the Constitutional Revision
Committee for a public hearing before any action can be taken
by the Legislature.
