Resolution would appoint
interim members to CSL
A resolution to recall six Council on
Student Life student members and replace
them with ASUN senators for an "interim"
period will be introduced to the ASUN
The resolution would "help direct the
transition of CSL into an organization
which will work more closely with ASUN.
These interim appointments last until suc
cessful reorganization of CSL or the end of
the session, whichever occurs first.'
According to ASUN Sen. Frank Thomp
son, one of the originators of the resolu
tion, the key phrases are "transition of
CSL," "work more closely," "interim" and
He emphasized these would be interim
appointments and that an amendment
could be added stating the original six CSL
members could be appointed again.
"I will take steps (at the ASUN meeting)
to explain that this resolution in no way
says anything about the six CSL members
serving now," he said.
"CSL is a very good organization now,
but ASUN wants to take an active role in
making it a better organization," Thomp
"I think this resolution would receive a
favorable vote," he said.
"We want to work for the benefit of
students in an attempt to bring the organi
zations (ASUN and CSL) together," he said.

Two Council on Student Life (CSL) stu
dent members Tuesday were informed that
the ASUN Appointments Committee was
"seriously considering initiating a recall
procedure" against them.
CSL members Chip Lowe and Judith
Anne Sadler received a letter signed by
ASUN Second Vice President Paul Morri
son, also a CSL member. .
Seven CSL student members are appoint
ed by ASUN.
The letter said "the Appointments Com
mittee has become concerned about your
representation at CSL meetings. A large
part of the CSL meeting of Nov. 6 was
used to discuss ASUN Senate's Resolution
No. 36. Through the discussion, it became
apparent that your views were not what
ASUN expected of you."
Resolution 36 urged the chancellor to
establish CSL as an on-call committee to
meet at the request of the Faculty Senate
president, ASUN president and the
During the Nov. 6 meeting Lowe and
Sadler opposed the resolution, saying they
thought CSL was more effective the way
According to Morrison, the letter was
written in response to concerns by some
ASUN senators about Lowe's and Sadler's
actions on CSL.
At previous CSL meetings, Morrison has
expressed concern about the constituency
of CSL student members, and representa
tion by those members.
However, he said Tuesday, he thought
nothing would be done about a recall un
til he met with the Appointments Commit
tee. There are no written procedures or
guidelines for recall of any ASUN commit
tee appointees except those for attendance,
Morrison said he was not sure whether
opposition to a "ASUN resolution by a
CSL student member would be grounds for
"Before you can recall anybody you
have to define what recall is," he said.
Sadler said she is waiting for Morrison
to clarify the statement that her views are
not what ASUN expects of her. She added
that when she took the job, she was asked
what she would do if ASUN and CSL views
conflicted. She said she replied that it was
an unfair question and she would try to
represent the student view regardless of
whether it was representative of ASUN or
"I didn't think that when I took the job
that it was to be a rubherstamp for AS UN's
opinion," she said.
She added that she thought the letter
should not have been written until ASUN
knew the basis for recall.
Wait and see
Lowe, after talking with Morrison, said
he was going to wait to see the outcome of
the Appointments Committee meeting.
He said he also questioned whether
ASUN has recall power.
ASUN President Jim Say said the power
of recall was not explicitly written in the
rules and procedures of the Appointments
Committee. However, he added, ASUN
would go on the basis that "if you can
appoint you can recall."
Committee hears testimony on regional vet school
By Theresa Foreman
The Legislature's Agriculture Com
mittee Tuesday heard testimony from NU
officials, veterinarians and members of Ne
braska's livestock industry concerning the
proposal to locate a regional veterinary
school in Lincoln.
Nebraska is one of Ave states being con
sidered as a site for a regional veterinary
school which would serve Montana, North
Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Ne
braska. Marvin Twiehaus, chairman of UNL's
Veterinary Science Dept, told the com
mittee the state has an obligation to pro
vide veterinary training for those Nebraska
students who are qualified and interested
in becoming veterinarians.
Currently, NU contracts veterinary stu
dents to other state colleges which have
Last year, Twiehaus said, UNL was able
to send 28 students to other state's veter
inary schools. He said that between 40 and
60 students apply for the positions each
Twiehaus said he favors a regional
school rather than the current contractual
arrangement because other states are be
coming reluctant to take outstate students
into their programs. He said Kansas State
University has threatened to reduce the
number of Nebraska students in its veter
inary school and the University of Colo
rado will accept no more veterinary stu
dents from Nebraska after 1977.
Twiehaus said these states are receiving
pressure from their respective legislatures
Social work will move
to reduce the number of out-of-state stu
dents in their programs.
While the veterinary schools are reluct
ant to admit out-of-state students, Twie
haus said, at the same time, they do not
want to see more veterinary schools built
since this will dilute the federal financing
veterinary schools receive.
UNL Interim Chancellor Adam Breck-
enridge told the committee that the uni
versity favors a regional approach to high
cost programs such as veterinary medicine.
Committee members expressed concern
that Nebraska would be stuck with the
total cost of building and financing a
regional veterinary school since it had no
assurances the other four participating

Exon sees vet school OK

Nebraska Gov. J. James Exon said Fri
day he and the other governors would
approve the five-state regional veterinary
school plans by January or February and
send the proposal to their legislatures.

school on UNL's East Campus.
Clarence Cole of Ohio State University
and chairman of the Old West Regional
Commission (OWRC), said Monday each of
the five states has a "good possibility" of
being chosen as the site. As the feasibility
study of a five-state regional vet school
continues, Cole said he has received "won
derful cooperation" from UNL Veterinary
Science and Agriculture Dept. officials and
NU administrators in assembling data
about the university.
Cole said he has visited the five states
with no preconceived ideas of which school
would be the best site for the proposed
college. Montana, North and South Dakota,
Wyoming and Nebraska are being evaluated
on their educational and economic aspects,
An advisory committee of the Old West
Regional Commission will review the re
searcher's progress Dec. 19, Cole said. He
confirmed Exon's announcement that the
site will be decided upon and the feasi
bility of a regional veterinary medicine
college will be determined early next year.
Cole said the commission is considering
finance possibilities and said construction
costs cited in a news wire article in the
Lincoln Star last week were mostly
"rumor." The arcle reported that Cole
would recommend that OWRC pay $5.6
million of the $14 million construction
It also reported that if chosen, Nebraska
would pay $3.2 million and the other four
states would pay $5J2 million. This is not .
necessarily the case, Cole said. "
