XfEfaxa Coleman, Jr., UJ5. secretary of transportation,
said he found Earl Butz's racial annmentj no worse than

because some persons thought money should not be in
vested in something they said would only serve the rich.
"Now the British and French are investing the dollars
. while we're learning the technology. What I did was con
sistent with the legislature's ruling," said Coleman.
Saying he felt it was important to restore confidence in
the federal government, Coleman added that the Ford
administration hasn't dictated to federal departments.

The federal government is spreading cut, and more
government employes are coming to campuses, Young

rected for federal governments.
Instructors qualified to advise the federal government
have to be expert in their fields and this expertise is
helpful to the student, Young added.

GmdL3aie senatonnJcill!(S out of ASUM meeting
ASUN adopted two rescJutioss and confirmed three
senate nominations Tedsesday nfit ia a rneefeg marred
by procedural squabblas. v
The procedural squabble: began when three new
senators were confirmed asd sora in before roll vji
called. As roll was be caHsd, graduate senator Frank
Thompson objected.
"How can yon vote to confirm these people without a
quorum? Thompson said. "I want it stated in last week's
and this week's minutes that I didn't participate ia the
election, he said. "IH probably take this to student
First Vice-President Tony YIiams responded, "The
first thing we did was to count to see if there was a
quorum. That's the first thing a government body does,
he said.
Thompson picked up his coat and walked out. The roll
continued, 24 senators were present, enough for a
Two weeks ago, ASUN minutes show, Ted McConneQ
was nominated and confirmed as a business senator and
Steve WEey was confirmed as an engineering senator. Doth
actions were taken before roll was called.
The new senators confirmed last night were Colleen
Shanahan, business, Scott Cook, Arts and Scks&es, sM
Lyie George, agriculture.
One resolution acted ca by ASUN was to grant a
lEOday operating permit to any group wishlsg to
campaign on campus fox a political candidate. The ASUN
, constitution requires a student group file a constitution
with ASUN before operating' on campus. The resolution
was designed to get around this constitutional clause.
The resolution as originally passed two weeks ago would
.have granted a 90-day operating permit, but was vetoed
last week by ASUN President Bill Mueller because it
was determined that 90 days would not be enough time.
The Senate felt that ISO days was not enough time
either, and through a friendly amendment the length was
extended to 240 days.
The new resolution also would have enabled groups
granted a permit to use "all the financial services available
to fully recognized groups. .
"Would this mean that these groups could request
student fees like other student organizations? Cook, the
newly-appointed senator asked.
"No, they would just be eligible to use student banking

services, said senator Lihby Swansea. It was noted that it

Ken Mareinau, ASlrN-Residence HaH Association
liaison, presented a resolution calling for a parking lot
south of the Coliseum. The resolution also asks that the
number of Area 1 to 5 parking permits sold be equal to
the number of spaces available. The resolution was passed
by Residence flail Association (RilA) last week.
