Reports were not complete as to whether Banannapeel had accomplished this dastardly deed. Bananapeel's no fall guy; Said said dead An assassination attempt highlighted an otherwise boring debate at a special ASUN Senate meeting Monday night before a vote on a resolution calling for support of the National Organization to Support Orgasm (NOTSO). National NOTSO Chairman Tony Rutabega charged that Sen. John Whystand was the "biggest obstructionist of the bill", which would re-channel the $40,000 ASUN budget to NOTSO to pay for office expenses. Whystand failed to respond to the charges since he is no longer a senator. Failure to maintain a quorum delayed voting on the bill. The debate on the resolution was highlighted when former ASUN President Ron Banannapeel, a slippery character, slid into the senate chambers and flailed his successor, Jim Said. Hello, yung lovers According to the battered Said. Banannapeel was bitter over Said's refusal to create a post in the new administration for him. Banannapeel's attack reportedly had nothing to do with the NOTSO proposal or any other current senate business. "Banannapeel turned rotten when I. wouldn't let him assume the office of ASUN Emperor," Siad said. "Cutting him out of the administration like that brought tears to my eyes, but what could I do?" Banannapeel was loud in condemning his successor while being dragged away by Senators Susie Writes and Earl Sings. "That son of a (gun) Said said that I could have my say in his administration,", Banannapeel shouted. "After all he used our party. Smilin' (Johnsdaughter, former ASUN first vice president) and I were supposed to run the show." A mean martini Said denied charges that he was a puppet of the previous administration but declined further comment as he hung limp at Banannapeel's side. Dennis Bitter, presidential candidate for the would-be Umarika Party (URP), was unavailable for comment. In other business, the senate approved renaming the Union the "David Halfwit Memorial Parking Space." They were influenced by the former ASUN second vice president's impassioned plea for recognition. He also held a live grenade when speaking to the senate. .. Passage of the renaming resolution was achieved before the quorum dissipated. The original resolution had not included the word "Memorial". But Halfwit slipped while holding the grenade prompting the amendment and destroying the quorum for later action. Fleas bored; canine clubs have Lassie laugh By Rebecca Bite and John Bow-Wowski The Fleas Allocation Board (FLAB) threatened to scratch all fleas allocations if some campus organizations "don't get off our backs," according to Marguerite Bowser, FLAB chairman. FLAB members were besieged at their meeting Sunday by representatives and advisers of several student organizations, demanding both increases and decreases in student fleas. Representatives of the Bark and Bridle Club asked that less control over student fleas be held by Kennle Biter, vice chancellor for student affairs. Jim Boohiss, a member of the board, defended Biter, saying, "his bark is worse than his bade." Tires re treaded Among the most vocal of the student groups was the Council of Angry Indian Students (CAIS), who protested the board's refusal to fund their 1976 Bow Wow. Rin Tin Tindian, president of the group, charged the FLAB with discrimination, siting a press release earlier this semester in which Bowser was quoted as saying, "It's a dog-eat-dog world." "That's an obvious putdown of traditional Native American food," Tindian howled. Houn Daghi, president of the United Foreigners Organization (UFO), also appeared before the board to demand "foreign fleas for foreign students. ' Cost overrun Bowser responded favorably to the demand adding, however, that the UFO would have to cooperate with the board in the allocation of foreign fleas. "You scratch our backs and we'll scratch yours," she said, after a pause. Dr. Ken Rubble, director of the University Health Center, said the FLAB paid too much attention to student fleas and not enough to student crabs. Fat chance "We demand equal time," he said. "We've got a whole rash of these cases over at the health center, and I'm here to tell you that the doctors are boiling mad." Not everyone appearing at the meeting, had complaints, however. Nebraska Sierra Club President Harts Mountain collared some board members before the meeting and proposed an alternative tc student fleas. 'Have you ever considered ticks?" he said feverishly. Bowser said the board members did not take Mountain seriously, however, explaining that they were "put off by his foaming at the mouth." "The whole idea seemed a little mad, anyway," she said. "";.
