Meat boycott touches few UNL living units
by Dave Madsen
Tho nationwide meat boycott which began Sunday
apparently has had no major effect on meals served in
dormitories, fraternities, sororities or cooperatives on
campus. That information comes from a Daily
Nebraskan survey taken Wednesday.
In the survey, representatives from six fraternities,
six sororities, two cooperatives and the dormitory
food service system were contacted.
Douglas Rix, coordinator of residence housing
food services, said the boycott has not prompted
changes in dorrr'ory menus. According to Rix, the
menus for this year were drawn up last summer and
no suggestions have been made that they be changed
to observe the boycott.
Rix said that if a majority of students refused to
eat meat, changes would be made. But, there haven't
been any problems with refusals, he said.
Of the fraternities surveyed, none had any plans to
observe the boycott. Two have planned meatless
dishes simply because they can't afford meat at the
higher prices.
Sigma Phi Epsilon will have several meals without
meat because of the higher prices, according to Marie
Potter, head cook. She said fish, chicken and
macaroni will be part of their menus.
O.C. Berks, head cook for Delta Sigma Phi, said
they have had to cut back on meat quite a bit. Early
next week they may not serve any meat at all, she
Representatives from Beta Theta Pi, Farmhouse
and Alpha Gamma Rho fraternities said the boycott
has not affected meals and there are no plans to buy
less meat.
Dick Hanson, Theta Chi treasurer, said that
although Theta Chi is not observing the boycott, th?y
have cut back slightly on the amount of meat
purchased because of high prices.
The situation in the sororities appears to be the
same. No soiority plans to boycott meat and only
one has decreased their purchase of meat.
Jean Schulling, Zeta Tau Alpha house manager,
said they have bought only slightly less meat and the
members aren't participating in the boycott.
Corinna Cass, housemother at Kappa Delta, said
they have no problem with meat cost. "In my
business, you have to think and plan ahead. Good
management is a must," she said.
Alpha Chi Omega housemother, Anne Sutton, said
that although they haven't reduced the quantity of
meat they buy, they are using a bulk substitute rather
than pure meat.
The housemother at Chi Omega, Viva Eilers, said
that the boycott has not affected them yet, but
commented that "it (the boycott) is a touchy
situation because I have a lot of farm girls here."
The cooks at Kappa Alpha Theta and Delta Delta
Delta agree that the higher prices and the boycott
have not affected the meals they prepare.
In the cooperatives surveyed, both indicated they
have problems concerning the higher meat prices.
Barry Stelk, president of Cornhusker Co-op, said
they have exceeded their budget because of the
higher cost. This could be a significant factor when
planning next year's budget, he said. Stelk added that
there are no plans for observing the boycott.
John Ortmann, steward at Ag Men, s.iid the
cooperative also has cut back on meat. He said they
are considering buying a freezer and a live animal.
"Then we could make our own hamburger," he said.
Ortmann said that because most of the members'
parents are farmers, members of Ag-Men oppose the
boycott. "If anything," he said, "we'll go on a meat
buying spree."

On the evening of May 5, 1970, UNL students occupied the Military and
Naval Science building to protest President Nixon's decision to bomb
Cambodia. At 3 a.m. Dan Ladely (left) held a bullhorn while Joseph Soshnik,
then campus president, told students they could stay in the building. Ladely's

Union Board blasts
fee task force report
by Ruth Ulrich
The Nebiaska Union Board has
recommended the Administration
Task Force repoit on student fees
should be invalidated.
The task foi ce reoit, released in
February, lecommends that the
UNL student fees structuie be
teoiganized and that a new system
foi budget planning be established.
The task foict; had been charged
with studying budget requests and
how they should be received,
considered and t ecommended for
appioval by the NU Board of
UNL Vice Chancellor Ken Bader
submitted ihe task force repoit to
the Nebiaska Union Board for
evaluation and suggesfions for
changes before the leport is
piesented to the Board of Regents
in their April m ee t i n g.
The Board said that "little or no
background study into the present
system of student fees and their
allocation" was done by the task
force committee members. For this
reason, the evaluation said, the
committee members, "for the most
part, seem to have a basic lack of
knowledge of the present student
fees distribution.
Because ptogiams an; set up in
advance and also because it would
not be possible to opeiate the
Union if funds were not always
available', the Board deemed the
"zero based piogram budget" plan,
suggested in the task foice report,
as being "unreasonable". Under this
plan, UNL groups would assume no
student fee supixjrt until the
Allocations Board giants it to them.
In place of it, they proposed
that the major fee users (Union,
Daily Nebraskan, Student Health,
and Rccicalion and Intramurals) be
assured of continual funding, to be
legnlated by (jiving the Allocations
Board Ihe ability to change the
alio ca lion of fees by a set
I ei eniage
According to the Union Board,
the committee report claimed that
a number of groups have said
"there is no mechanism available to
have access to student fees." Union
Board members said "this
accusation is a fallacy" because
organizations not funded by
student fees can ask Recreation and
Intramurals, the Union or ASUN
for financial assistance.
The task fence recommended
establishing a UNL Program and
facilities Allocation Boairl to
''receive and weigh budget
r o q u e s t s. " The i epoi t a I so
recommended that the boaid be
composed of six faculty or
administrative appointees anil five
But the Union Boaid, in its
(.'valuation, said that the majjrity of
the voting membeis of this board
should be students, because funds it
would be dealing with come fiom
student fees.
The task force report also said
that allocated funds not used will
be returned to the allocations board
at the end of the fiscal year. But
this procedure, the board said,
wojld not allow for equipment
replacement and ongoing
Another area of the report undei
attack was appeals. The Union
Board claimed the appeals route is
"loo restricting. Any appeal fen
funding should be sent diiectly to
an appellate jury," tin' evaluation
read. And the jury decision should
go dnectly to the chancellor and
then to the Boaid of Regents and
not "fuuneled" through the
Allocat ions Board.
The last suggestion made by the
Union B o a r d ; o n c e r n e d
appointments to tin; appeal board.
They suggested that each student
organization submit the name of
oni; member from their group and
horn this list the chancellor could
choose student members for Ihe
appeals jury.
