    FAB hems, allegMl
. By Gail Stork
An alleged overpayment of three former ASUN execu
tives was brought to the attention of the Fees Allocation
Board (FAB) by FAB member Paul Morrison Monday
According to Morrison, payroll advice forms show
' former president LIU Mueller and former vice presidents
Jos Stavas and Tony Williams received April sahriss in
violation of the ASUN budget's provision . for. salaries '
only through March 30. . .
He also said Eill Mueller received $65 more than the
$910 maximum presidential salary allowed by the ASUN
constitution. Stavas and 7illiams are still under the
maximum vice presidential salary, but Morrison said he
does not know how much since records show they have
j been paid irregularly.
Morrison proposed that the FAB require these indi
viduals to return the money before their grade reports
and diplomas are released.
This money would be put back into the ASUN ac
count to help alleviate the $1000 deficit projected by
. Kent Thompson, campaign manager for ASUN president
Greg Johnson, Morrison
Even though the rescheduling of the ASUN election
Stretched executive terms from March 30 to April 20,
Morrison said they could receive no extra money because
there was no government bill written to reaxranp ASUN's
line item allocations.
"... ;., Morrison's Vhite horse
Mueller said this was the first he hid heard about
the overpayment and said he doubted he could take it
seriously. '
"If he (Morrison) was really concerned about the tight
ness of. this, he would have talked to me about it,"
Mueller said. ."It's just Paul on his white horse again."
Mueller said if the university wanted his money, they
would have to come after him to get it. He added that he
would get a lawyer if his diploma and grade report were
Jay Matzke, FAB member, said he was convinced
Morrison's proposal was "a little vendetta" against Muel
ler. "Paul Morrison and Bill Mueller are archenemies
They hate each other's guts," he said.
Matzke questioned the power of the board to carry
u'Ivq overpayment

out Morrison's susstioa. However, former FAB chair
woman Sherry Cola said the board has control over any
thing concerning student fees, and could recommend to
Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Richard Armstrong
that the salaries be returned to the university. t
The FAB tabled discussion of Morrison's proposal until
Thursday's meeting.
The FAB also made tentative allocations to five stu
dent organizations including three that were tabled be
cause of last week's lack of quorum.
U?C budget 'bars bones' . ?.
The Union Program Council (UPC)preseated what
UPC member Shari Patrick labeled as "a 'bare bones bud
get," which is a 6.1 per cent decrease from last year's
allocation. '
Discussion of the UPC entertainment council and
Talks and Topics programs cut in the original recom
mendation led to the tentative allocation cf $56,003
for both the Nebraska and the Nebraska East Unions.
Dave Rasmuasen,' staff . attorney for Student Legal
Services, presented a request for $19,217 along with an
alternative request for $29,110. ASUN recommended
the $19,217 budget.
He said the $29,110 budget request was his own
version, but he said he thinks it was the rninirnum they
could receive if they were to do more than, "apply band
aids to legal problems after they've developed."
The board tabled a decision on the tentative alloca
tion until a definite proposal could be formulated.
The FAB tentatively allocated $2,750 to the Student
Bar Association, . and $265 to the UNL Rugby Club.
No funds were allocated to the Cornhusker Debate
Senators trying to resurrect death penalty measure
By Paula Dittrick " : , .. .s. ..
Capital punishment in Nebraska faces death row
qualms awaiting a move to reconsider it in the Legislature.
Monday the Legislature voted 23-22 tq kill the bill
introduced by Omaha Sen. Ernie Chambers. The bill
would abolish the death penalty.
However, Falls City Sen. Nelson Merz, absent when the
vote was taken, filed a motion to reconsider the bill.
Merz predicted his motion will not be considered
before next spring. Noting only 19 days remain in this
legislative session, he said senators have "got a lot of other
Mis to consider" before returning to LB 64.
Some 25 votes are needed to revive LC64. This support
is possible if the 22 senators voting against the til's death
and if three of the four senators who did not vote Monday ,
favor the bill's reconsideration. .
Senators absent -
Senators absent during the Monday vote include
Aurora Sen. Maurice Kremer, Omaha Sen. Warren Swigart,
Big Springs Sen. Jack Mills and Merz.
Mills and Kremer have said they would vote to recon
sider LB54. Swigart said he did not know how he would
vote. - '
Prior to the kill motion, senators voted 26-11 for an
amendment which would ensure that persons convicted of
what are now capital crimes would be imprisoned for at
least 30 years. . ' v
The only exception to the 30-year minimum sentence
would be if the Board of Pardons changed the sentence.
v Lincoln Sen. Waily Bimett said he is prepared to .
propose a constitutional amendment to remove the" Board
of Pardons authority for. first degree murder convictions.

Merz said he did not think much of the amendment
although it received the strongest support cf any attempts
to push the passage of 1X64. , . '
