You Can Be An
S. A. Next Fall
By Kathy Slepicka
For 1JNL students commuting between
campuses, days of riding the buses toe to toe,
elbow to elbow and cheek to cheek may be over.
Three intercampus buses are now running on a
20-minute schedule, according to John Duve,
UNL parking coordinator. The new schedule's
goal, he said, is to have a bus leave each campus
every 1 0 minutes.
Duve said buses used to leave City Campus on
the half-hour, and stayed at East Campus until
the next hour, when classes were over.
Students could wait for a bus up to 45
minutes, he noted.
Duve said 20 minutes is the longest they will
have to wait now. Nine to 10 buses run each
hour, he explained, compared to four buses
hourly in the past.
The change should eliminate crowding on the
buses, according to Duve. Surveys made last
semester by Campu: Police showed that up to 90
people rode buses on some trips, he'said. He said
the standing limit lor me Duses is u people.
"It was quite a dangerous situation," Duve
said. "The people doing the surveys said people
were packed against the front window."
Duve said he thinks many students are
confused about the new schedule, especially
those who live off campus and haven't had access
to the new schedules until now.
Three thousand schedules have been printed,
he said, and are available at the residence halls,
student unions and at the agriculture finance and
Campus Police buildings.
The fare is still the same. Students may buy
12-ride bus passes for $1 at the student unions
on both campuses and the agriculture finance
building. Students also receive passes when they
buy a $25 parking ticket.
Students commuting downtown can ride a
shuttle bus between 10th and N Streets and
Morrill Hall for 10 cents.
Students interested in becoming a student assistant in
men's and women's Residence Halls for the 75-'7S
academic year. . . . Take Note! You must attend one of

THIS WEEK'S BIG DEAL:
Ventura Fernandez Ramirez
The ASUN book exchange in the Nebraska Union recorded
$2,824.92 in sales Monday and Tuesday, doubling its total of
$1,438.21 for the entire one and one-half week of sales last fall,
according to Sharon Johnson, ASUN first vice president and
manager of the exchange.
"We're completely floored at what's happened, but I'm really
happy about it," she said.
She attributed the increase in sales partially to the fact the
exchangp was open during finals week in December. Many of the
books sold were brought in at that time. She also gave credit to
increased word-of-mouth exposure for the exchange.
Although sales reached $1,300 Monday and $1,500 Tuesday,
Johnson said she expects lower totals the rest of the week.
"Most people buy their books the first few days," she said.
An additional $200-$30O worth of books were sold Monday and
Tuesday at the north desk in Abel Hall, according to Sue Hatch,
manager of the exchange there. Books are also being sold at the
East Campus Union. All three locations are open through Friday.
Campaign finance law
A new campaign finance law, which went into effect Jan. 1,
represents a change in the government's role in politics, according
to Robert Sittig, UNL associate professor of political science.
But the law's intent is to make politicians seem more
"righteous," said Robert Miewald, interim political science
The law limits campaign contributions and expenditures and
provides for public financing of presidentials races through a
check-off system on income tax returns.
If enough taxpayers (25 per cent, according to Sittig) check the
box designated for presidential campaign contributions, the
government will divide $20 million between "recognized" political
parties. Each state has its own qualifications for a recognized party,
Sittig said, but most require the party to have had some success in
the previous election.
The law's passage is an indication of the government's shift in
position, Sittig said-from controlling and regulating campaigns to
"The intent of the law is to allow parties not to rely so heavily
on contributions," Sittig said. These contributions have been
increasingly important lately because of the growing number of
television campaigns, he said.
Diminish minor parties
"The law will probably tend to diminish minor parties and
encourage the two main parties," Sittig said, because few parties
are willing to risk the possibility of being refused funds because of
too few votes.
What makes the law unusual is its "after the fact" provision
which allows minor parties to collect reimbursement for their
campaign from the government should they poll enough votes to
qualify as a recognized party, he said.
Miewald said regulations on costs of campaigns rather than
expenditures might be more practical.
Limit television time
"Regulation of expenditures hasn't worked at all well in the
past," he said. Miewald said limitations on the amount of television
time allowed each candidate and on the length of the campaigns
would be more effective.
Both professors agreed that the law is a direct rcsuit of
Arthur Winter, also a political science professor, said the law's
critics say it violates the First Amendment, the right of any
citizen to express himself freely, because it "could exclude some
people from stating their views." People might not be willing to
risk their money on the chance that they would receive funds after
the election, Winter said.
