ASUN, AUF join to raise funds
By Jeff linger
For the first time, students will be given the chance to
decide on the support of selected campus organizations.
Calling it a "one year shot with ASUN," Pam George,
president of the All University Fund, said ballots listing
five on-campus and six off-campus organizations will be
circulated in the Greek houses and residence halls.
The balloting, which will be conducted in the frater
nities and sororities, will ask students to choose three
on-campus and three off-campus organizations they would
like to see supported by money contributed to AUF.
Students living off-campus will be able to vote in the
ASUN office, located in room 1 15 of the Union, between
9 ajn. and 6 p jn. today through Friday.
In the past, money donated by the AUF, the univer
sity's fund raising organization, went only to off-campus
groups, but this year a change was made.
She said AUF was approached by ASUN with the idea
that the money donated be split between the two groups
and that AUF donate its half to the off-campus groups
and ASUN would give money to on-campus organizations.
Also proposed by ASUN was the formation of a
Student Foundation which could help support campus
organizations in the future.
Not competing with AUF
Ken Marienau, ASUN president, said ASUN saw the
Student Foundation as a good project and that they
wanted to raise funds for it and the campus organizations,
but that they didn't want to compete with AUF.
He said ASUN is hoping the NU Foundation will match
the money given to them by the AUF so it can be used to
start the Student Foundation.
"The money would be invested in a high yielding
account, and the interest could be used in future years to
support organizations such as these (those on the ballot),"
George said the AUF Publicity Committee researched a
number of organizations and chose those on the ballot.
The on-campus organizations on the ballot will be the
Political and Ideological Speakers, sponsored by the
Talks and Topics Committee; a child care project, spon
sored by the University Child Care Center; a typing
lounge in Love Library; student research grants, spon
sored by ASUN, and new black student orientation,
sponsored by the Afro-American Collegiate Society.
Off-campus organizations on the ballot will be
Birthright; the Lincoln Multiple Sclerosis Chapter; United
Cerebral Palsy of Nebraska; People's City Mission and
Family Shekel ; WICS Residence for Girls, and the Chris
tian Record Braille Foundation, Inc.
Had second thoughts

Police track down
hot carpool permits
Carpool parking permits are being stolen at an average
rate of one a day this semester, according to University
Sgt. Joe Wehner said the first suspect of the semester
was cited Monday after a stolen permit was found hang
ing from the rear view mirror of his car. UNL student,
Howard V. Fisher, 19, 1235 S. 22 St., was charged with
possession of stolen property, a misdemeanor.
Wehner said the permit was stolen from a car belong
ing to a UNL staff member and the same staff member
allegedly discovered the permit hanging in Fisher's car and
turned him in.
Wehner said as of Sept. 12, eight permits have been
stolen from cars sitting in university parking lots. He
added that three have been recovered.
Wehner said all of the stolen permits were carpool
permits, which hang from a rearview mirror so police
can see them, and are easily transferable to another car.
The vehicles must display another sticker on the. rear
windshield in order for the sticker hanging from the
rearview mirror to be valid.
Wehner said most of the stolen permits were taken
from unlocked cars. He urged everyone with a carpool
permit to lock their cars.
The permits cost $40 for two cars, and an additional
five dollars for each additional car. They also cost $10
to replace if lost or stolen.
So far this year, 870 carpool permits have been pur
chased at UNL

"I was very scared to include this (speakers) at first
because I was advised by a former administrator (name
withheld) not to get involved with Talks and Topics,"
she said. "But since the regents took that money away
last year, I thought we should get involved."
"We're (AUF) just the middlemen in this. If the stu
dents don't want to support the Talks and Topics they
won't vote for it."
Protest over some of the speakers chosen last year
prompted the regents to stop the use of student funds for
Since the money will be split evenly between AUF and
ASUN, George said she hopes to top the nearly $15,000
made last year.
"We could stand to lose money by splitting this, but
we're hoping to raise enough that it won't make a differ
ence," she said.
The results of the balloting should be known by
Thursday, she said, and that organizations raising and do
nating the money to AUF will be able to know where it
She also said this is the last year such a joint effort will
be made between the two organizations.
