AS LA pledges support
to sculptures, 'sunshine'
By George Miller
Two resolutions passed by the AS UN
Senate Wednesday night supported
sculptures and "sunshine."
One resolution puts ASUN on record
backing the proposed 10 contemporary
Bicentennial sculptures to be placed at
Interstate-80 rest areas across the state.
The resolution also urges Gov. J. James
Exon, the Legislature and the entire state
to "accept and take pride in the cultural
gift of sculpture for our state."
Sen. Jeff Searcy, who introduced the
resolution with Sen. Karen Lang! and,
said the sculptures "take time to grow on
People who oppose the sculptures have
three main complaints against the project,
Searcy said, which are money, the lack of
Nebraska artists on the project and that the
public was not told of the project.
Many persons think citizens tax money
will finance the projects, he said, but no
tax dollars will be involved.
Searcy said $100,000 for the project
comes from the Nebraska American
Revolution Bicentennial Commission,
$342,500 in contributions from Nebraska
businesses and individuals, $20,000 from
the National Endowment for the Arts and
$12,5000 from the American Revolution
The Senate also passed a resolution
backing the "Sunshine Initiative," a
petition drive to get the 1976 Nebraska
Political Reform Act on next November's
A booth is being manned in the
Nebraska Union by the Nebraska Univer
sity Public Information Research Group
(NUPIRG) to gather signatures for the
The petition is required by law to
obtain 31,590 signatures, Search said,

The drive is coordinated by the
Coalition for Open Government in
Nebraska. Nationwide passage of the
initiative is organized by Common Cause,
a lobbying organization.
'.Sunshine" refers to letting "the sun
shine into state government," Searcy said.

No CSL meetings called
until controversy settled
The effects of the controversy between
ASUN and the Council on Student Life

During the November 20 CSL "meet
ing," Chairman Lyle Young refused to call
that meeting, and all future meetings to
order until the controversy of who the real
CSL members are is cleared up.
This direction would come from the
UNL chancellor or Student Court, Young
During its November 19 meeting, ASUN
rescinded ail its student appointees to CSL
and replaced them with ASUN senators.
This recission is temporary, ASUN pres
ident Jim Say said, and will last until the
reorganization of CSL is done.
A proposal which the ASUN senators
want to introduce and pass at CSL would
change the route of CSL recommendations.
Instead of going directly to the chancel
lor, the proposal would require CSL recom
. mendations to go to ASUN and the Fac
ulty Senate for approval. If approval is
not given, the recommendation would go
back to CSL for revision.
If approval still is not given, the recom
mendation would not go to the chancellor.
CSL student member Chip Lowe is
expected to petition for a hearing before
the Student Court. Action is not expected
until second semester.
There is more to a fraternity than

The Kappa Alpha Psi Scholarship fund
