UNL Chancellor Zumherge:
Alumni Assoc. reduced costs
Members of the UNL Student
Alumni Assoc. may have been respon
sible for increasing state aid and
keeping tuition increases down in last
year's UNL budget, according to UNL
Chancellor James Zumberge.
Speaking at the ASUN Senate
meeting Wednesday night, Zumberge
told senators association members may
have helped bring about last year's
legislative override of Gov. J. James
Exon's veto of the proposed UNL
According to Zumberge, Exon ob
jected to the increase in state aid
contained in the proposed budget.
State aid composed 65 per cent of the
NU budget in 1974-75, compared to
nearly 60 per cent of budgets over the
past five years, he said.
The university doesn't have a
"sterling reputation" in the Legisla
ture, Zumberge said. Failure to
override the veto would have meant a
tuition increase for UNL students, he
said. - ...
Zumberge urged senators to support
the allocation of student fee money to
the Alumni Assoc. because of the
"indirect benefits" it provides stu
dents. He did not explain the benefits.
ASUN had backed a recommendation
by the Fee Allocations Board last
spring to eliminate the association as
eligible for student fee money. The
money, $20,000, was allocated by
Zumberge over the recommendations.
The NU Board of Regents later
increased UNL student fees by $10, to
$61.50 per semester.
Objections to subsequent action by
Alumni Assoc. officials were raised by
ASUN senators. According to Sen.
Mark Hoeger, the association officials
felt they were not subject to the same
restrictions that other student fee
funded groups fall under because the
money had hot been appropriated
directly by the Fee Allocations Board.
Zumberge said he had been assured
by association officials that the money
would not be aboused, but would be
spent for projects of student interest.

Student 'guinea pigs'
Reactions to exercise studied
By Chuck Beck
Those signs in residence hails solicit
ing volunteers for a physical fitness
research project are not the work of a
team of mad scientists, but members of
a UNL physical fitness research team.
Dr. Bob Robertson, director of UNL's
Physical Fitness Research Laboratory.
(PFRL), said Tuesday that students
physical and mental reactions to differ
ent kinds of exercises are being studied
According to Robertson, two people at
the same level of physical fitness may
view particular exercises differently.

diVflcuVtT while the other person believes
It to be easy, Robertson said.
"Research at PFRL Is directed to
establishing optimal exercise programs
and to getting people to adhere to
exercise programs," he said. .'.
Student volunteers are asked to
perform two exercises which enable
researchers to vary workloads and
measure bodily responses to exercise,
Robertson said. While performing the
exercise, a student v.u rate V.ie relative
ease or difficulty of the exercise. These
exercise ratings are then compared with
the student's bodily reaction, he said.
One exercise students do is to pedal a
bicycle which can be modified to very
pedal resistance with output measurecj
in vheel revolutions per minute. j
Students also run on a treadmill a
different speeds and slopes, enabhn
researchers to measure heart responses
with an electrocardiograph, Robertson
The amount of oxygen consumption la
also measured while a student exercises
and blood tests are administered to
determine the lactic acid level, which
increases with exercise, he said.
Fitness evaluation ,
Robertson said students are used in
the oxDeriments because the exercises
are demanding. Students are not usually,
paid for volunteering, 'although they
receive comprehensive cardiovascular
fitness evaluation, dealing with the
lungs, heart and circulatory system, ho
A "physical exercise prescription" is
also given students who want to develop
and progress through a personal
exercise program suited to their needs,
Robertson said. I
About 150 students, primarily from
residence halls, have participated in tho
program since Friday, Bob Gillespio,
'research technologist at PFRL, said,
: The PFRL Ss part of a department
within the Nebraska Center for Health
Education and is funded by university
,fupds Robertson said.
