cos tool, students loss
NU Regent Ed Schwartzkopf of Lincoln has a
long history of acting in opposition to student in
terest. His bulldozing Saturday of the Campus
Assistance Center (CAC) proved the man still is
running true to form.
Schwartzkopf and student regent-ASUN Presi
dent Jim Say succeeded in convincing the other
regents that the CAC, a project on which student
representatives have been advised and consulted for
three years, lacked student support and input.
Say presented a petition, circulated by ASUN,
that asked postponement of CAC construction in
the Nebraska Union until student opinion could be
solicited. The petition carred a bare 1,000 signa
tures, less than five per cent of UNL students.
According to Say, the dearth of signers proved
students had not been adequately informed about
the proposed center. He said many students would
not sign the document because they were not
acquainted with the issue.
Schwartzkopf went a step further, asserting that
if CAC were to be built as scheduled, students
would be "unhappy." On the strength of these un
founded arguments, the board voted to withdraw
all bids on the center.
Both Schwartzkopf and Say's statements are un
adulterated hogwash, and if the regents think they
will ever get more "student input" on the CAC,
they may wait until Hamilton Hall crumbles into
It is obvious, from the lack of petition signers
and near-lack of response in the Daily Nebraskan
(one letter) that UNL students do not care whether
the campus assistance center is built.
But those same people would benefit from the
center's services if it were built, for its proposed
location would have brought most students into
contact with it.
It is apparent that for ASUN and for Schwartz
kopf, the CAC has been a handy political tool, to
be used and now cast aside. In the process, an
excellent project has suffered what may be irrepar

I assumed, as I'm sure many other students did, that
when I filled out my housing contract it covered room and
board for both entire semesters.
I realize that many food service employes are students
who want to get home as soon as possible, but does the
university really expect all the math students ou campus to
take their finals on empty stomachs?
I know there is nothing food service managers can do
about the illogical scheduling of math finals, but I hope
whoever does do the scheduling takes into account the clos
ing of the dorms five semesters from now when the math
finals will again be on Friday.
Meanwhile, this semester we either stock up food in our
rooms, or end up walking downtown for dinner when we
should be studying.

Separate government .
What does Ken Bader think he's doing, telling ASUN
how to run its affairs? ASUN is the student government,
separate from administration and I think students should
