Wanted: can crusher. Reward: $1 00
Are you mercilessly destructive? Do you have a
buried desire to reduce a defenseless tin can to the
dimensions a mere shadow of its former self? If so,
ASUN needs you.
The ASUN Environmental Task Force is offering
money to the designer of a tin can crusher. Task force
president Marguerite Boslaugh said $100 has been
allocated for the crusher, but that amount probably
can be increased if it's needed.
She said three engineering students are working on
a practical design, but she has not seen any definite
"Ideally the crusher should be fast, safe,
inexpensive and preferably portable," she said.
She said the crusher should fit on the front seat of
a car, be light enough to be carried or round so it
could be rolled to where it is needed.
Boslaugh said many people are working on the
project already, and the administration has offered
sites on campus where recycling bins for the cans may
Former task force president Bill Freudenburg said
a can f lattener that runs on manpower has been in use
on East Campus for several years.
"All it consists of is two boards fastened together
with a glorified hinge, but it works," he said.
Boslaugh said any recycling endeavor is strictly for
the sake of the environment and is not an attempt to
make a profit.
Freudenburg said a similar project was attempted
two years ago with disappointing results. In fact,
Northwestern Metal, the company that buys the sciap
metal, had to be persuaded to give them another
chance this year, he said.

Former Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell
By Randy Wright
Addressing an audience of more lhan 200
persons, former astronaut Edgar Mitchell
Sunday spoke of a deeper human conciousness
that he believes is "the key to learning to utilize
the expanding human potential."
Mitchell related his moon excursion to (his
belief by telling of a lealization he fvpei iencd
while returning from the moon. An
"overwhelming sense of peace, and
identification with the entire universe" was
how he described what he said eventually led
him to the field of human conciousness.
"As I looked beneath the blue and white
cO'a o'f the atmosphere, I could vco folly.,
the trivia, the mess that man has made of the
earth," he said.
To attain this conciousness, humans mir.t
use tnoie of their "God given capabilities,"
Mitchell said. "We are totally convinced that
the human conscious has properties that are
natural, normal functions of human systems,"
Noetics, defined as "the science of how man
can know," is the technical term hi; used to
describe his studies,

man but goes down to lowet life, suggesting

Following two weeks of discussion scissions, somewhat of

Hall residents, according to Sando Residence Director Claudia
The discussions are a result of apparently racially piovoked
incidents which began about two weeks ago, according to a
student assistant in Sando?..
The incidents which triggered discussions apparently
involved a threatening note and both verbal and physical
provocations, according to the Sando student assistant.
"These incidents have brought about much discussion with
all concerned and hopefully will bring about a fuller
understanding and an awaieness and sensitivity to where each
IKjrson stands within themselves," Pernal said Saturday.
Both Pernal and Complex Program Director Elizabeth
Griego have discussed the incidents with individuals involved,
Pernal said. Student assistants also have encouraged floor
residents to talk about the problems,
"We've had a lot of sessions, but more needs to be done
than just rapping," Pernal said. "We have plans for getting
groups of students to visit the UNL Cultural Center. Next
week we hope to hold a general rap session open to the

students meet their needs as individuals," Pernal said.
In addition, "an awareness on the part of minority studeni:,

EXTRA! magazine, the Tur.'sday suiplernent

published, according to Daily Nebraskan
Editor-in-chief Michael (OJ.) Nelson cited
increases in publishing costs, particularly paer
costs, as the major rear on for discontinuing the
magazine. The magazine and its predecessor,
friday, had centered on issue related subjects.
I he Daily Nebraskan earlier had hoped to
switch from printing EXTRA! on the finished
paper to printing it on newsprint. However,
Nelson said although the finished paper is more
expensive, "the newsprint is more valuable,
because it is in shoi t supply."
Because of the newsprint shortage', the Daily
Nebraskan lias only a limited amount of
newsprint, left, Nelson said, Using it for
EXTRA' would have- depleted the stockpile
