Many people arc talking about it.
Nobody knows who's on it.
And only three people admit to having formed it.
It is a slate for the March 17 ASUN election. But, un
like most slates, it is comprised of candidates from three
of the four recognized parties in the election and repre
sents only candidates from Greek Houses.
The Greek slate endorses Phi Delta Theta member EI3
Mueller, a junior in pre4aw and independent candidate for
President; Alpha Qmicron Pi member Paula Haeder, a
junior in Integrated Studies and independent candidate for '
first vice-president; and Farmhouse member Dennis
Martin, junior law student and New Student Coalition

Several state senators and Got. J. James Exon sat down
in the capital's basement coffee shop Wednesday for what
Newman Grove Sen. Thomas Kennedy had called a press
conference. But it turned into a forum questioning the

proposed $94 million NU budget
Kennedy, who began the meeting, said coffee shop
conferences were needed to get the facts about the pro
posed university budget to the senators constitutents.
"I asked Mm what he did when he wasn't lobbying,
Kennedy said, "and he said he was an English professor."
Kennedy said John Robinson called him Monday night
to inquire about his position on the university budget.

Kennedy said he asked Robinson why he (Kennedy)
should support a 23 per cent tax support increase in the
university budget when cattle prices are down and there
appears to be a droughts " " . -
"He could not answer my questions," Kennedy said.
Sidney Sen. Robert; Clark, vice-chairman of the Appro
priation's Committee, said he opposed all general fund ad
ditions to the committee's previous tentative $37.9
million NU budget, except for an addition for a brain
scanner at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
Exon's proposed budget, scrapped earlier by the com
mittee, presented a "more business like approach."
His constitutents have told him to hold down the
budget, he said.
Exon outlined his objections to the Appropriations
Committee bill. He said the committee's budget includes
a provision o cash fund ceilings for a tuition increase,

Eveland, a senior art major from North Bend, refused
to identify other candidates on the Greek slate.
Eveland said he, Barb Hengen, and a committee of
select Greeks have been working on the slate since
January. At that time, Eveland said he introduced the idea
to some IFC representatives after one of their meetingsr
Hengen, a senior secondary education major from Wahoo,
is the former president of FanheSenic and a member of PS
Beta Fhi sorority.
Another admitted member of the slating committee,
John Kane, a senior speech and drama major from Kansas
Gty, Mo, and president of Phi Delta theta fraternity,
said he presented the idea of a Greek slate at a sorority
and fraternity presidents meeting Feb. 11. He said he
asked the presidents to find members of their houses who
would be willing to run on a Greek slate.
which he saU he opposes.
Exon said maybe, although he didn't recommend it,
tuition, which he said is a large amount of the university's
cash income, should be set each year to cover 25 per cent
of the university's 'costs. In that way, he said, some stu
dents, although not a majority, would stop being what he
called pawns for the university system.

Funding could not get medical center figures on profes
sional fees faculty members receive for treating patients.
dark explained that if a patient is sent to the medical
center, fees that a person pays go to medical center opera
tions. Eat, he continued, if a patient is referred to a
specific doctor, those fees are put in a professional fee
fund distributed among doctors.
r Exon called the medical center the "sacred cow of
sacred cows," at the university.
dark said he would sponsor a resolution for a commit
tee study of professional fees and the way they are
handled over the summer.
As the conversation turned to the NU budget in
general, Kennedy said, "I don't think the public knows
how much we've been over-lobbied."
Exon said, "We haven't begun to match the lobbying
with unlimited funds, especially from the University (of
Nebraska) Foundation," on these issues.
Pro-university lobbyists have done a much better job
putting out facts, he said.
