certification is made by both the student and school,

The representatives will contact any veteran who
drops out of college to encourage his return, serve as
liaison for all campus veteran groups and brief them on
benefit matters and consult with college officials and
faculty on VA matters.

especially education," Vavra said. I
To help a veteran who has lived in Nebraska for one
year prior to his service to attend the University, the
Vet Reps will check to make sure he has completed all
of the paperwork required by the University and VA.
This will include referrals for loans, tuition, schola
ship.'jobs and aid for dependents. All aid is primarily
based on need.

work-study program for Nebraska veterans.

group, which has about 70 members. An organizational
meeting for the group will be held Sept. 9.
ASK membership cards
selling at reduced cost ;
University of Nebraska students can get reduced
prices at 35 Lincoln businesses this year if they beiinq
to the Associated Student Ko-op (ASK), said ASUN
President Ron Clingenpeel. j
ASK membership cards will cost $3 this year a
reduction from last year's $5 price. Students who
bought cards last year may buy the new card for $2.
Tickets can b purchased at participating businesses.
Clingenpeel said fewer businesses are participating
this year than last year. Several businesses changed
owners and dropped participation, he said.
The benefits of ASK are two-fold, Clingenpeel noted.
The student receives discount prices and the business
receives free advertising, he said.
Posters will go up in participating businesses and
door-to-door sales In campus living units will begin naxi
week, Clingenpeel said. The card may also fo
purchased in the ASUN office. ;
Last year 650 ASK cards were sold. The decrease
rate, larger advertising campaign and additional
salespersons should make the card more attractive this
