C iv irr ficrn nHfH in favor of permitti By Lynn Silhasek Twenty-three of the 30 Legislature candi dates who answered an ASUN survey supported a nonvoting student on the NU Board of Reqents. The membership is provided for under proposed Constitutional Amendment No. 1 (also called the Student Regent Amendment) which will appear on the Nov. 5 election ballot. According to the amendment, the student government presidents of UNL, the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and the Unversity of Nebraska Medical Center would be nonvoting board members. The survey was sent this fail to 45 candidates campaigning for Legislature in the November elections. Thirty of the 45 candidates responded, representing 22 of 24 legislative districts, according to Jim Say, ASUN Student Rights Committee chairman. Survey questions concerned various stu dent issues such as student fees, residence hall visitation hours, aicohol on campus, the State University of Nebraska (SUN) program and the University Health Center authority.

Three i li st .' if ' ' s , i I : '. 1 1 Hit . i A V candidates indicated that student fee funding of certain organizations ana programs, suwi as the Daily Nebraskan and ASUN should be compulsory, but other areas should be funded by other methods. Students pay $61.50 per semester in student fees. The Fee Allocations Board (FAB), is a student advisory group that makes recommendations on how student fee money should be spent. On whether students should have direct control-over the allocation of this money, 15 of the 30 candidates responded yes and eight responded no. Seven candidates did not respond either way, commenting that student control of these funds should be in harmony with existing UNL administration policies. According to present UNL policy, the NU Board of Regents gives final approval to student fee allocations. Opposition to alcohol The response from a majority of the candidates regarding aicohoi on campus echoed the Legislature's and Regents opposition to the issie last year. Nineteen of the candidates opposed alcohol on campus. "Plenty of it elsewhere," was the comment from Sen. John Savage, the incumbent campaigning in the 10th legisla tive district. Seven responded in favor of permitting alcohol on campus. , "If that person makes up his or her mina to get drunk, he or she is going to do it whether it is on or off campus," according to Richard Giblin, legislative candidate from the 6th district. "I think it is an unenforceable law without fencing in the campus like a prison yard with checkpoints at every entrance or gate." t 24-hour visitation Twenty-four hoOr visitation in UNL resi dence halls wsflreiected, 3-1 by the 30 candidates. Tw(.ty-one responded against the visitation, seven responded In favor of it and three left the decision up to the Regents. 'I don't believe a tax-supported institution should be turned into a public bordello, commented Giblin. "Who wants to be bothered 24 hours a day'?" commented Walter George, 16th district candidate, another opponent of 24-hour visitation. ,. ,, "If I were a male student, I would like it, commented William Nichpl, 48th district candidate. "As a father of a girl that age (college age), I'm against it." Present residence halls visitation policy allows residents to determine hours for their own floors, up to 14 hours a day. Dyas attacks Ford's "PR" plan: , , ... 'WIN program will be forgotten' J ti-t'ti- I it u Frank Morrison's car was Involved In an accident with four other cars at 7:09 p.m. Thursday night, prior to his appearance at the Democratic Candidates Forum. Lincoln Police Patroleman Lyle Roberts said the accident, which caused $850 damage to the five cars, occurred when the acceleration linkage broke while Morrison was backing into a parking space between 14th and 16th and R St. No ticket was given. ;1a j By Randy Gordon , L1 Hess Dyas said Thursday night President Gerald Ford's 31-point "whip inflation now" program is "basically a public relations program that will come and go and be forgotten." Dyas, who is opposing Charle3 Thone for Nebraska's first Congressional seat in the Nov. 5th general election, was one of nine democratic candidates who spoke at a forum sponsored by the unl Young Democrats at the Nebraska Union. Dyas proposed a nine-point program to fight inflation that includes: Tax reform to close loopholes that he said benefits the wealthy by allowing those making over $50,000 yearly to "get away without paying their fair share." , Busting of large trusts and mono plies to "end pricefixing and artificial shortages by allowing too few people to have too much power to control the price structure." ,!, Balancing the federal budget. Cutting government and military spending and forcing aid. Wage and price controls which he said can be effectively if "there are no loopholes and is not mismanaged as it was in the Nixon Administration." Dyas said controls might be difficult to pass in Congress because of what he called earlier mismanagement. Stabilizing the farm market by establishing an adequate grain reserve in the U.S., that is "treated as a reserve and not as a surplus to drive the price of grain down." Dyas said the U.S. must continue to export grain and that the prices farmers now receive a "better and fairer price for grain." But Dyas said he "really applauos a lot of those Midwestern Puritan things the President has been talking about. We simply cannot continue to be such a gluttonous country." Frank Morrison, Democratic candi date tor attorney general said m mo race against Lancaster County Attorney Paui Douglas is "something new in American history. "Never before has there been such large funding of an attorney general race," he said. . Morrison said Douglas has received $70,000 to $80,000 in campaign contri butions and said he opposes advertis ing' tor or private contributions to candidates running for the office. Morrison said he favors making the position nonpartsan. The former governor said schools, civic clubs and news media "have an obligation to give attorney general candidates a chance to make their positions known," free of charge. Morrison said, if elected, ho would: Put pressure on county attorneys to "shore up" state criminal law. Advocate stricter judicial ethics. Put an expert in charge of investigating and prosecuting mono polies and consumer fraud. Abolish all private law practices by the attorney general, his deputies, or his full time assistants. ''
