'get off apathy'
by Steve Strasser V
Their slogan-also the name, they have chosen for
their party-is not a new one: Get Off Your Apathy
ASUN candidates under the GOYA banner are
banking on the premise that the mood of student
activism of the 1960s had faded only from the
headlines, not from UN L. , ' rnv.
In their name and in their platform GUY a
candidates rely on the active support of students for
the success of their program.
GOYA presidential candidate is Ann Henry.
Running with her under the party's banner is Mark
John Hoeger for first vice president and Robert Todd
McDaniel for second vice president.
GOYA sees ASUN as a leader and coordinator of
student action, a departure from the current ASUN
President Bruce Beecher's view of student
government as a quieter service organization.
"We would have ASUN create a special program
designed to inform students of opportunities for
involvement at UNL," reads the GOYA platform,
"and also to actively recruit them for these
The most concrete of the projects GOYA promises
in its platform is to find ways to fund a student
lawyer to serve as a free legal adviser for students and
as a permanent staff member of ASUN.
The student party also plans to deal with
educational reform at UNL, particularly by working
for changes in the advising system. Under the GOYA
program students would continue to have f acuity
adviser, but a central office provided by ASUN would
also be opened for both students and faculty advisers.
The centralized office would contain materials to
help in course or career selection. The office also
would provide students with links to people in the
community who are already practicing careers the
students are considering for their own.
In order to improve the advising system GOYA
would also urge that faculty members be evaluated in
terms of their performance as advisers as well as their

time To do seething about it. This is National Nutrition Week
in Nebraska sponsored by the Nebraska Dietetics Assoc.a ion
With the theme "Invest in Yourself, Buy Nutrition they
group hopes to make people aware of their nutritional needs.
Just what an individual's nutritional needs are is hard to
determine, according to Hazel M. Fox, chairman of the UNL
department of food and nutrition. Nutrition is ' what happens
to food in the body and how the body uses the vitamins,
minerals and proteins in the food," she said.
Fox said most persons eat too much. The result is that even
though they may fulfull their nutritional needs, they eat more
than their bodies can use, she said.
"The tendency now is to think that diets were more
healthful when we ate more starch, fruits and vegetables-the
depression diet," . . iA
It's hard to get individuals interested in their diets, she said,
"You are what you eat."

That's what ASUN and Residence Hall
Association (RHA) officials said Friday after a
discussion with the NU Board of Regents on
the issue of alcohol at UNL.
The students left the evening meeting of the
Intercampus Student Advisory Council after
failing to convince all the regents that alcohol
should be allowed on campus.
The students presented a proposal to allow
alcohol consumption and possession in living
A report they presented to the regents
contained results of a survey conducted In
residence halls In which 60 per cent said they
favored unrestricted consumption in living
Regent James Moylan said he could see "no
possible good having beer on campus."
Moylan said he didn't see any need for
alcohol on campus with the availability of
alcohol in Lincoln. He said that most students

Regent Kermit Hansen said the issue was
whether to treat students as mature adults, not
whether alcohol was good or bad.
"I think alcohol is a horrible, misorablo,
lovely thing," Hansen said.
Regent Ed Schwartzkopf said there were no
advantages, only disadvantages to having
alcohol on campus.
"I don't care if my kids drink. I just don't
want them to drink on campus," Schwartzkopf
said. After the meeting he said ha was tired
of students bringing proposals lika those asking
for increased coed visitation and alcohol on
campus. He said he was more concerned with
.improving the quality of education it UNL.

for having alcohol on campus if UNL was 50
miles from the nearest town.
required to fund (ethnic minority) programs, GOYA
says, "amounts too large to be granted without
cutting back on programs that benefit all fee-paying
students." GOYA favors acting as a center for seeking
outside funds from such groups as businesses and
government agencies to supplement ASUN support Of
ethnic minority programs.
-Intercampus relationships: GOYA promises to
pay more attention to East Campus students,
specifically by investigating problems in the
intercampus bus system. ,
-Housing: GOYA supports dormitory students
right to "determine their own living standards and
rules relating to alcohol, visitation and privacy, just as
(students) living off campus are now allowed to do.
-Internal workings of ASUN: GOYA supports
internal senate changes that would reverse "the
declincing role of the senate" in relation to ASUN
executives. "The executives, however, will not shrink
their responsibility in the area of initiating new
programs or projects."
The GOYA party has three Senate candidates on
the Agriculture ballot, 10 in Arts and Sciences, three
in Business Administration, three in Engineering and
Architecture, two in Home Economics, three in
Graduate and Professional and six in Teachers.
Running for advisory board positions under
GOYA are two candidates in College of Home
Economics and three in Teacher College.
courses to be offered
More than 60 University courses will be available for credit
in 21 different departments as a part of an experimental
Pre-Summer School session this year, May 21 through June 8.
According to William Sesow, UNL assistant director of
summer sessions, the three-week course will make it possible
for a student to earn one to three credit hours m what he
called an "intensive, innovative format."
Sesow said the purpose of the pre-session is to provide more
flexibility for the student.
"Many students need only two or three hours to graduate
and this would be a good chance for them to p.ck up those
hours without having to attend the regular five-week session,
he Students will now be able to earn a maximum of 15 credit
hours during the summer sessions, the equivalent of an average
regular semester. Sesow also said that students could use the
students, asked their opinions on the proposed pre-summer
session. Sesow said the responses were encouraging.
The pre-session will cost $18 per credit hour, the same as
the regular summer session. .
Because this is a new idea, Sesow said he wouldr it predict
whether the pre-session would ease the load on the regular
summer session. He said this year's program offers few courses,
but probably will expand if students accept it.
Concerning the recent summer session budget cuts, Sesow
said UNL isn't offering as comprehensive a program as
administrators prefer. .
Pre-registration for all summer sessions will begin March 19
and continue through April 6. More information on summer
sessions registration and courses offered is available through
the Summer Sessions Office, 101 Teachers College.
