The UNL Resident Hall Association (RHA)
Thursday voted to propose four changes in their
constitution regarding the vice president's duties
and the date of RHA elections.
The new proposals state that the election date
shall be determined by an election committee at
the beginning of the second semester, that
procedures and dates for candidate filing must be
published and that the vice president should
assist the president in the execution of his duties,
in addition to filling in for an absent president.
Jim Burke, RHA vice president, said the
amendments, which were unanimously approved,
must be published three times before the
RHA president Tim Evensen announced that
there will be a meeting Monday, March 17 at 7
p.m. in the RHA office (107 Neihardt) for all
prospective RJIA candidates who are interested
in learning what the offices entail.
Also, according to Ken Swerdlow, assistant
director of Housing, a housing policy committee
will meet in an open hearing Wednesday, March
19 at 7 p.m. in the Nebraska Union to investigate
the visitation policy.
In addition to regular business, 12 ASUN
executive candidates were present to participate
in a debate.
Jim Say, United Student Effort Party (USE)
presidential candidate, said his party doesn't
want to make the Union another Gateway, as
regards commercial businesses. He stressed that
since ASUN doesn't have control over the Union,
a change in power structure must take place.
Dennis Snyder, speaking for the unofficial
Amurica party, running on- an independent
ballot, suggested the creation of a Student
Activity Center because he said students are
investing "big chunks of money into a losing
business" in the Student Union.
Del Gustafson of the Sons of Liberty Party
(SOL), agreed with USE that expanding the
Union deserves further investigation. .
"The Union is for students-there should
always be room for them," he stated.
Rick Horton of the unofficial Pro-Apathy
Party (PAP) said that since dormitory residents
are paying twice for services, ASUN coordination
with RHA is needed. He suggested a hired expert
to look into student interests.
Vince Powers, an independent presidential
candidate who advocates withholding student
fees next semester, said that if students withhold
funds, the ASUN will be controlled strictly by
the students instead of by the chancellor and the
Board of Regents.
It had been suspected that RHA president
Tim Evensen would announce his candidacy for
an ASUN executive position at the meeting.
But Evensen said, "I am not announcing my
candidacy at this time, though a write-in
candidacy is certainly not out of the question.
This is the year of the independent candidate,"
'Biased coverage1 criticized
The Daily Nebraskan came under attack at the
Fees Allocation Board (FAB) meeting Thursday
In a budget hearing before the FAB, Dean
Kirby and Karen Steinbruegge, UNL students,
said the Daily Nebraskan has produced
low-quality journalism and has not been
responsible to the student body.
The Daily Nebraskan is asking for $35,000 in
student fees to supplement its budget. The
amount of the Daily Nebraskan budget coming
from student fees has decreased from 43 per cent
in 1971-72 to about 12 per cent next year,
according to Ken Kirk, advertising coordinator.
Kirby said the Daily Nebraskan has biased
coverage of student affairs, contains too much
opinion and contains writing inconsistent with
the salaries paid to the staff.
"The paper almost as a matter ot pnncipie
does not recognize the obligation it must incur to
the student community, if the students will be
taxed to support it," Kirby said.
He said the editorial policy has stereotyped
the students and does not give enough advance
notice of upcoming events. The FAB could
change the poor quality of the Daily Nebraskan
if it would take action to cut off its student fees
funding, he said.
FAB member Jim Lewis questioned the profit
of $15,000 shown on the Daily Nebraskan
budget this year.
Jerri Haussler, Daily Nebraskan business
manager, said the profit has come from
exceptionally good advertising sales, but is
partially in equipment and bill-out assets.
Lewis said justification of the profit must be
shown to the FAB, since student fees are
allocated on a zero-based budget.
In other business, Ely Meyerson, dean of
student development, told the FAB that because
of good management in the Student Health
Center, $70,000 to $90,000 in student fees will
be saved this year.
The funds left over from the health center will
be allocated to other services receiving student
fees, he said.
Of the $61.50 paid each semester in student
fees, Meyerson said, $8.1 1 is used for stuaent
organizations and activities. Funding for Overseas
Opportunity, Travel Flight Program and New
Student Program is subtracted from that amount,
The FAB approved tentative allocations to the
Soccer Club, Ski Club, Association for
Computing Machinery, University Child Care
Project, Weightlifting Club, Fencing Club and
