Kids invade ASUN meeting
With a gallery of onlookers numbering about 50
and the patter of little feet in the background, the
ASUN Senate tabled a resolution that would allocate
$702 to the Child and Infant Day Care Center.
Action is scheduled for next week on the resolution.
The Senate turned thumbs down on a proposal
which would have terminated five full-page
advertisements that ASUN has bought from the Daily
Nebraskan, passed a resolution endorsing alcohol
consumption in UNL living units, and cleaned up
final budget details. They also endorsed the discipline
code-with exceptions-that is being overhauled by
the Council on Student Life (CSL).
Nearly one hour and a half of discussion and
Filing deadline is
Feb. 16 for ASUN
Candidates for ASUN executive senate and college
advisory board positions must file by 4 p.m., Feb. 16,
in the ASUN office, room 338, Nebraska Union.
Filing forms are available in the ASUN office.
Students wanting to run a party must put down
the party's name and initials on their filing form.
Candidates for the senate advisory boards must be
full-time students in the college they want to
represent. They also must agree in writing to resign if
elected, if they end enrollment in that college.
In addition to these requirements, candidates for
the executive positions must be regularly enrolled and
have completed 27 University approved credit hours.
Their previous semester must have been at UNL.
The elections will be from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on
March 14. Elected candidates assume office March
21. - - -
numerous parliamentary procedures preceded the
automatic tabling of the resolution that would
allocate money to the Child and Infant Day Care
Center. Senators tried three times to circumvent
constitutional requirements that automatically delay
monetary resolutions but attempts failed, so the
resolution was tabled and is scheduled for
consideration at next week's meeting. ASUN gave the
Center $1,000 last year.
Pat Thompson, a parent whose children stay at the
day care center, told the Senate that "we aren't
asking for you to support our children. We're asking
that you support us-as students. It's critical because
if you don't, it means we can't stay in school."
Another parent, Delang Kromer, said the center
serves 170 parents and 75 children. She said the
center had 25 parents on the waiting list and had
turned away 75 because it could not accomodate
"We really need somebody to represent us where
we try to get money (from sources other than
ASUN). Money begets money," she said.
Sen. Bob O'Neal wanted to know what parents
had done to support the center and was told that it
was illegal for parents to give directly to an
unlicensed day care center.
Sherry Speck of the center said parents had tried
numerous ways of raising funds but that money from
parents must legally be donated through another
agency. Center parents donated $150 through the
University of Nebraska Foundation.
Budget Committee Chairman Marsha Porter told
the group that the committee hadn't been told of the
seriousness of the center's financial difficulties during
"You probably wouldn't be in this dilemma if you
had massed before, instead of after, the fact," Sen.
Ron Frank of the budget committee said.
In other action, the Senate entertained lively
discussion on resolution no. 47, to terminate funds
for weekly ads in the Daily Nebraskan. The
resolution, however, failed.
"The Daily Nebraskan ads are the crux of what is
the matter with ASUN this year," O'Neal, sponsor of
the resolution, said. "The content of the ads is poor.
We could further ASUN'S programs by a different
An amendment was suggested stating deletion of a
section stating that the "Senate was not given the
opportunity to authorize this irregular advertising
expenditure" after ASUN Senate President Bruce
Beecher told the group that they had voted the
money when they passed the budget bill.
Money for the ads comes from the communication

listen to ASUN debate a proposal to give
money to the Child and Infant Day Care
Gagne said. The contract with the Daily Nebraskan,
however, does not obligate ASUN for the entire
semester. There may be as few as five ads during tbi
semester, Gagne said. ASUN, according to their rules,"
has to buy three advertisements preceding the
election in any case to publicize changes that will be
on the ballot in the spring elections.
The Daily Nebraskan earlier reported that ASUN
was planning to buy 15 full-page ads during the
Other Senate business included an endorsement of
alcohol on campus and an endorsement of CSL's
Code of Conduct and Disciplinary Procedure
The exceptions: A statement should be included in
the code on the student's right to have disciplinary
files kept confidential, and the code should include a
provision that "a student be given opportunities to
make up classes if heshe is found not guilty."
A resolution authorizing ASUN executives to
transfer money from "office expenses" to "student
organizations" was passed. No further approval of the
budget is required, according to Vice President Sam
Chancellor, UNL students meet at round table
by Ruth U I rich
It may be a round table, but they're not knights.
They're 10 UNL students who along with Chancellor
James Zumberge comprise a group called the
Chancellor's Round Table.
Zumberge announced last spring that he would be
appointing persons to the Round Table. The group
was activated in October. Most members are seniors
and were chosen by the chancellor. In many cases
they are president of some UNL organization.
According to Mary McKinney, past president of
the Panhellenic Association and a round table
member, the group was to have monthly meetings,
usually over dinner, but only two were held last
semester. McKinney said she thinks, however, that
the group probably will meet again in February.
Most members agree that the round table would be
more effective if more meetings were held. "I think
it's a good idea," said Roxanne Pankonin, the only
freshman on the round table, "but most of the
subjects discussed are too broad to really accomplish
She said that the body can't vote and actually
change things, but it does improve the chancellor's
contact with the student body.
"The round table's main purpose is to serve in an
advisory capacity," said Jim Gray of the Daily
Nebraskan. "It gives the students a chance to advise
the chancellor on things that are going on."
"I enjoy the round table," said Carol Evans of
Mortar Board. "We can discuss issues relevant to
students and also gain an understanding of how the
chancellor feels about things," she said.
McKinney said that at one session the body
discussed the University compared to other schools in
the U.S. Since most members are seniors, the quality
of graduate education has been an important topic,
"At least it shows Zumberge's willingness to talk
with the students and hear their opinions," she said.
