Fejfar added that the GLC supports the Appropriations
Committee's recommended NU budget.
It is pretty good if you compare their figures with
those in the NU budget," she said. -
Herman said GLC also is lobbying for Grand Island
Sen. Ralph Kelly's landlord-tenant bill and amendments
and are pressing for the bill to come up on the floor soon.
The bill is "down the line quite a ways", Herman said,
but GLC hopes it will reach the floor while UNL students
still are in Lincoln.
The bill may not be reviewed during this session, he

GLC is opposed to an amendment proposed to the
landlord-tenant bill by Scottsbluff Sen. William Nichol,
Herman said.
He said Nichol, a landlord, "turned the bill around"
and proposed that if the tenant fails to comply with his
obligations, the landlord would be able to recover losses

The list of UNL housing director candidates has been
narrowed to six by a screening committee that is "running
a little ahead of schedule," according to Richard Arm
strong, vice chancellor for academic affairs.
Armstrong, former housing director, said Wednesday
he urged a quick screening process so final candidates
could visit the campus from May 2 through 13 to be inter
viewed by students before summer.
The 10-member screening committee which was
appointed March 15 and includes two students, narrowed
the list from 68 applicants, he said.
"The committee and myself have selected two de
finite candidates to visit the campus next week," Arm
strong said. "A third candidate will be chosen from the
remaining four," he added, narrowing the list to three.
"" He said "seven! -focal staff. members" were included
among the 63 applicants but.dsclbsi to say if any UiiL '
staff members were among the finalists.
The position of housing director has been vacant
since March 1 , leaving five assistant housing directors
with operations responsibility, according to Armstrong.
Glenn Schumann has been chairman of the group.
"We are extremely fortunate to have strong assistant,
directors," Armstrong said. "They have worked beauti
fully and have the ability to reach high standards and
maintain perfection." .
He said he has asked Mike Gibson, Residence Hall
Association President, to select four association members
to be on the interviewing committee when candidates
visit the campus.
He said he plans on appointing the new housing
director and "having him at work by July 1," which he
said "would be about as quick as any recent search
committee has acted."
Although the original act included Webb Bancroft, a
sophomore from Ralston, as the Force's chairman. Sen.
Ted McConneil amended it so Bancroft only is temporary
McConnia said this would give the Senate a chance to
see how Bancroft works out and give the Task Force time
to establish their -own leadership. The Senate will approve
a permanent chairman by Sept 15.
Johnson sdd his intent in appointing Bancroft as
permanent chairman was to separate the Task Force as
much as possible from ASUN. '.
He would have rather seen the chairman chosen by the
farce instead of ASUN, he said, adding lf the senate did
r.ct like what- the force -wis doing, they rr.:;t net
