An increase in the number

major points that the USE and

spring ASUN ballot,
Clingenpeel said, which would
give the newly elected ASUN
Senate the power to revise the
constitution. McDaniel said
ACT does not support the
amendment, but if elected, it
would call a constitutional
convention so that more
revision of the constitution. J

lances Roundtable
By Mary Shackslton
The Chancellor's Roundtable isn't around anymore because
pressures didn't mount from students to get it going this year,"
according to UN L Chancellor James Zumberge.
Zumberge called the group, which was started during the
1972-73 academic year, a "good experiment." It kept
communication lines between the chancellor's office and the
student body open, he said.
However, he had reservations about the group's overall
effectiveness.
"The Roundtable was very productive as far as that group
concerned, but I think that was as fsr as it went," he said. The
idea for starting the Roundtable originated with Zumberge.
Thirteen of 2,100 students had insights into the chancellor's
office-those insights began and probably ended at the
Roundtable, Zumberge said.
The 13 members of the Roundtable were: the Residence Halls
Assoc. (RHA) president, the Interfraternity Council president,
Panhelienic Council president. Co-op Council president. Union
Board president. Daily Nebraskan editor. Innocents Society
president. Mortar Board president. Graduate Student Council
chairman, ASUN president, a Mexican-American Student Assoc.
representative, an Afro-American Collegiate Society
representative and a first semester freshman.
Roxanne Pankonin, the freshman on last year's Roundtable,
said she thought the group was "valuable and worthwhile because
of the direct input of campus leaders to the chancellor." She said
tha Roundtable was a well chosen group."
She mentioned that soon after the Roundtable was covered
last year in a Daily Nebraskan article, Zumberge received letters
from students complaining that the Roundtable was made up of
"honchos" and wasn't representative of the student body as a '
whole.
The Roundtable meetings began with the group having dinner
together.
-v.TtfeV..wwere no holds tarred" In whfetcjyld ba discussed,
Disc&tTdn? Hall to be fcept -off the mm4 for opinion ,tp jbe
candid arid to give persons the liberty to get into gut issues,
Zumberge said.
Members were free to discuss with other students what they
talked about at the meetings. In fact, they definitely were
encouraged to do so because Roundtable members were in prime
positions to communicate with other students, Zumberge said.
The Roundtable allowed him "to test ideas out on students,"
Zumberge said. Alcohol, visitation and student responses to
statements regents made at board meetings were items discussed
frequently last year, he said.
The student's responsibility to future UNL students' and the
alumni's role in the University system were idea; Zumberge said
he tried to convey to Roundtable members.
Substituting for the Roundtable this year are the chancellor's
visiting and speaking engagements with residence hall members,
the ASUN Senste and other campus groups.
Ann Henry, ASUN president, keeps the chancellor informed
about Issues before the senate, Zumberge said.
He spoke before the body last fall at her invitation. He said he
makes it a point to respond to invitations by students.
"Students come in to see me or I go seek them out," he said.
However, many students still believe the chancellor is
Inaccessfble and doesn't care about students, he said.
Zumberge said he would like to get more meetings with
students started againThis time be would speak with larger
groups, in informal, nonstructured meetings, hopefully with a
different group each month, he said.
Recently, Zumberge spoke to the 8Jock and Bridle Club on
East Campus in a general question and answer meeting of the
kind he described.
VScs Ch2ne!!or for StUC?nt Affair, Kn Bader has suogested
starting the Roundtable again. However, Zumberge said he doubts
this will be done.

their fields, return to UNL Sunday for
