Three parties, independents compete in election
By Rex Seline
Three parties and a host of independents will be
competing for AS UN government seats in the March
19 election, according to information released
Tuesday by ASUN Electoral Commissioner Gary Hall.
Two other groups were unable to obtain enough
signatures to run as parties but one party has
apparently made history by surviving for a second
year of competition, Hall said.
Parties, which obtained the required 500
signatures to run as a group, are: the United Student
Effort Party (USE), the Sons of Liberty Party (SOL),
and the Cut the Crap Party (CTC). The USE party
was also on the ballot last year.
The two groups which did not get enough
signatures to form as parties were the American Party
(AMP) and the Pro-Apathy Party (PAP). Hall didn't
say how many signatures each party lacked but did
say one party had tried using multiple signatures (one
person signing many times).
"They thought they had found a loophole, but
multiple signatures are not allowed," Hall said. He
declined to name which group had attempted it.
Candidates for ASUN president (and student

Salaries are 'critical point'
By Ron Wylie
recommendations are a critical
point of difference in the latest
UNL budgets proposed by the
university and the legislative
fiscal analyst, Chancellor James
Zumberge said Tuesday.
He spoke at the close of the
Committee hearings on the
Budget request figures from
UNL represent an attempt at
parity in education, Zumberge
told the committee, adding
that all studies have shown
Nebraska faculty salaries are in
the lower ten per cent of
Trying to prevent about two
and a half million dollars in
appropriations cuts, Zumberge
told the legislators his
proposed salary adjustments
would place the university in
the middle of the group of Big
Eight schools, which he said
was "a reasonable place to be."
"If the legislature can't do
anything about the money,"
Zumberge said, "at least allow
us a reasonable flexibility with
what we have. Let us decide
what we can do with it."
Zumberge appeared with
Duane Acker, vice chancellor
of the Institute of Agriculture
and Natural Resources, and
Director of Journalism Neal
' Acker said the College of
Agriculture would need
$490,000 to place UNL third
in the Big Eight. He said his
college was now in last place at
UNL in terms of salaries for
Acker also asked the
committee to provide
$136,000 for an irrigation
technology program, $170,000
for a food protein program,
and an additional $32,500 for
the technical school at Curtis,
Copple, who assisted
Zumberge in the presentation
before the committee, told the
legislators the university's
Areas of Excellence program
was successful after one year's
"There is no evidence of
any other public institution
opening up as much as UNL
has done," Copple said, adding
that academically the program
had gone beyond expectations.
Lincoln Senator Harold
Simpson questioned the
procedure of funding
university programs before
results could be seen.
' "There's always a year we're
behind in tieing evaluations of
programs into a budget,"
Simpson said. "In continuing
the university's funding for
Areas of Excellence, we are
asked to do something more,
while we have no way of
knowing if the first three-year
program is working."
"There is that risk," CoppLe
said, but he added that six
evaluation teams had already
provided some information and
that the evidence indicated the
university's system is effective.
Added funding was
necessary, Copple said. "We
have been told we weren't
smart when we asked for the
excellence program money
because we didn't ask for
enough," he said.
Zumberge said that
programs submitted to the
Unicameral had already
undergone a severe scrutiny,
and that excellence proposals
had been pared from 21 to

committee members to

to examine Preamble
By Marian Lucas
j "It is important to ask ourselves from whence we came by
examining the Preamble of the Constitution," Admiral Elmo R.
Zumwalt, Jr., retired Chief of U.S. Naval Operations, said Monday
night at the Nebraska Union Ballroom.
Lecturing on "Conflicts Between U.S. Military and U.S. Political
Policies", Zumvalt said that five inter-related elements rooted in
the Preamble are needed.
He said these are: forming a more perfect union by focusing on
domestic policy, re-establishing the government through Civil
Rights action, ensuring tranquility at home by allowing individual
and group expression, providing for a common defense, and
securing liberty with an optimum foreign policy.
Visiting Nebraska for the first time, Zumwalt, a former member
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the United States has failed to
keep its defensive guard up, so now America has to accommodate
the USSR. He said when the Soviet Union first tested US resolve in
the Cuban Missile Crisis, America had the will and strength to ward
off the communist attack.
Zumwalt said the Soviets now have a fearsome first-strike
advantage because of their accepted military superiority. He said
the United States admitted defacto inferiority when former
President Richard Nixon visited the USSR in June 1974.
Former Commander of Naval Forces in Viet Nam, Zumwalt said
that in curtailment of aid to South Viet Nam, the US is
dishonoring a commitment. He said that this decrease in aid
presents bad implications for America's future worldwide.
Gazing 500 years into the futre, Zumwalt said man will learn to
live with himself and his environment by socially and economically
integrating ail continents. He said habitation of the sea floor and
raising sea plants as agricultural products will be realities.
He said the world could, achieve these goals by collective
development of the ocean by regional groups.
According to Zumwalt, the world, through international
agreements, should begin efforts to change man from a land to a
sea animal by initiating exploitation of the ocean's resources.
Zumwalt said the present isolationist trend towards a US
'foiUess' is a terrible ides. He said the United States h to
recognize that future foreign affairs will involve complex
inter-relations between countries.
