student e!ttnsPTiinj for Con
gressman Charles Thone's re
election will serve on councils
formed at schools throughout
the district, according to Dave
Stevens, youth director for
Thone's campaign. Stevens said
the councils have a two-fold
purpose, to advise Thone on
issues of concern to youth, and
to tie students into the party.
Both the Dyas and Thone
campaigns recruit UN-L stu
dents from on campus, party
affiliated groups, according to
the campaign managers.
Recent reorganization of the
UN-L Young Republicans,
where Sevens said most of the
campus support for Thone lies,
made it impossible to approxi
mate how many UN-L students
are with the Thone campaign.
Some students, like Mullen,
are walk-ins. Through a UN-L
Young Democrats meeting,
Mullen said, he became
acauainted with the Dyas
campaign and discovered he
shared the same views as Dyas
"I was tired of hearing the
same old thing from Nebraska
Republicans," he said, and so
joined the Dyas staff.

combat selfishness
A iunior maiorine in social
work at the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln, Steve Porter
says college encourages , stu
dents to be selfish. , , -.
He said that , one way to
combat that selfishness is
through the Student Volunteer
Service (SVS). Through this
service, he has been a Y-Pal
and group organizer for six
SVS coordinator Mary Dean
said that through this program
students are referred to com
munity service projects and to
individuals needing aid. Inter
ested students may then choose
the area they would most like
to working.
Besides Y-Pals, students are
referred to such programs as
the University Day Care
Center, Lincoln-Lancaster
Mental Health Center, Lincoln
Lancaster Mental Retardation
Center, public schools, Neigh
borhood Youth Corps, 4 H, and
the Youth Service Bureau.
Students have also been
referred to services such as
reading to the blind, tutoring
Indian children through TONIC
and conducting book drives for
the Nebraska penal complex

generally are politically in
clined to begin with, according
to campaign managers on both
Steve Tupper, campaign
coordinator for State Senator
Richard Marvel's gubernatorial
bid, said many of his student
workers are from Nebraska
Wesleyan, where Marvel had
been a political science in
structor. Those with a political
science background "have got
some idea of what's goin on
and can test the theories
they've learned in class by
working in a campaign," Tupper
The value of having students
as campaign workers is that
they lend "an issue-kind of
input" to a campaign said
Kurtenbach. "Students are
more liberal and are concerned
about the issues as well as the
candidate," he said.
However, the three campaign
managers agreed that student
participation in campaigns has
decreased over the past years.
"It's hard for anyone to get
excited about a campaign at
this point," said Kurtenbach.
"But it wasn't too long ago that
students were interested in
politics no matter what time of
year it was. I don't know what
caused it. Probably the war or
the draft."
nonnlp ff a volunteer work is
too hard and they are afraid
they would be ineffective.
In Y-PaJsJe said he worked
witb-AiiJ-jtear-old boy who had
been in. trouble because of his
long hair. He said his work with
Robby was effective, but many
children in this program are not
really in need of help. Their
parents are just looking for
glorified babysitters, he said.
In the Y-Pal program student
volunteers are matched with
children from one-parent homes
and troubled school careers.
Dean noted that the volun
teer project is more successful
for the student if the assign
ment is clearly defined and
tightly structured. Too often
the organization seeking volun
teers fails to tell the student
what i3 expected of him or how
he is doing.
"When the student Is unclear
about his responsibilities," she
said, "he loses interest and
drops out."
The SVS has been in
existence about four years.
Any organization needing help
can ask for volunteers, she
said. Students wishing to
volunteer can contact Mary
Dean at the Student Services
center in the student union.
