Nebraska Union officials were work
ing to bring a full-service bank to UNL
before the Excel party called for one in
its platform, Union Director Daryl
Swanson said Thursday.
Union officials will begin looking for
banks interested in opening a branch
office in the southeast corner of the
union's main floor in the next 30 to 45
days, Swanson said. The union's lease
agreement with National Bank of Com
merce, which runs the union's two
automatic teller machines and offers
limited window service, expires July
Excel, the winning party in Wednes
day's ASUN elections, pledged in its
platform to work toward bringing a full
service bank to the union. Although
union officials had not asked the party
for its support, they were pleased the
party favored the proposal, Swanson
ASUN president-elect Chris Scudder
said Excel members first thought about
the issue at a platform meeting. Her
administration must work quickly to
fulfill its promise, she said.
"Since the contract is up fairly soon,
this will have to be one of the first
things we do," she said.
NBC opened its Campus Money Cen
ter and automatic teller machines five
years ago, Swanson said. The union had
offered a check-cashing service before
that time, he said, but concerns about
security and rising student demand for
the service led the union to look for a
Because Nebraska law limits the
number of branches a bank can run,
Swanson said, NBC couldn't offer full
service on campus. Under the agree
ment, non-NBC customers can cash
checks at the Campus Money Center
for a fee of 50 cents a check, he said.

Excel candidates win
by 10.6 percent margin;
voter turnout decreases
By Diana Johnson
ASUN officers-elect Chris Scudder
and Dan Hofmeister escaped a runoff
election with Impact party candi
dates Rod Permer and Mark Rise by
a 10.6 percent margin.
Wednesday's election would have
led to a runoff if Scudder, president
elect and Hofmeister, first vice
president-elect, had won by less
than 10 percent.
Election results also showed that
voter turnout was down about 10
percent from last year, although

balances there, but they must use the
automatic teller machines for check
cashing, deposits and withdrawals.
Swanson said a full-service bank
could attract new students looking for
a local bank. Interested banks could
make money from the fees they would
receive each time a student uses an
automatic teller machine. The Ne
braska Union's automatic teller ma
chines are the two busiest ones in the
state, he said.
"How many other automatic teller
machine locations do you see in the
city where four or five people stand in
line to make a transaction?" he asked.
Non-NBC customers who use the
union's automatic teller machines
should not lose access td the machines
if another bank takes over them, Swan
son said. Almost all Nebraska banks
have joined the Nebraska Electronic
Transaction System, which allows cus
tomers at any member bank to use
other member bank's machines across
the state, he said.
Union officials don't plan to bring a
1 full-service bank into the East Union,
Swanson said. Traffic at the East
Union's automatic teller machines, run
by Gateway Bank and Trust, has been
too light to justify more complete bank
ing services there, he said.
The Nebraska Union will award the
new lease to the bank offering the
highest lease rental,. Swanson said.
Under the present agreement, NBC
pays the union $4 a foot for renting the
960-square-foot Campus Money Center
and $1.30 a square foot for utilities
costs. The agreement brings in between
$5,000 and $6,000 a year to the union,
Swanson said the union hopes to
have a full-service bank by fall, although
it could take longer if another bank
takes over NBC's space. NBC officials
were not available for comment on
whether they would bid for a new lease.
electoral commission director Greg
Smith said the turnout met his
expectations. Total number of stu
dent votes amounted to 2,944, com
pared to 3,258 votes last year.
A computerized vote-counting pro
cess also sped up election results, .
Smith said, and was an improve
ment from the 1985 elections.
Residence hall student voting
totaled 1,081, a decrease from 1,239
last j ear. But voting in Greek Houses
increased to 1,189 vdtes from 1,178

tudents protest interior
By Janis Lovitt
More than 150 students protested on
Wednesday a budget-cutting plan that
would move the interior design pro
gram from the College of Home Eco
nomics to the College of Architecture.
Joan Laughlin, professor of the tex
tiles, clothing and design department,
said the home economics students who
attended a meeting of the ad-hoc-budget
review committee voted "with

Don said. He and Polly left the For
mica booths and robin's-egg blue
paint alone. They put up some
wicker wall hangings, some hanging
pots and called it good.
The crowd, too, has a constant
quality. It's about 90 percent UNL
oriented. Many of the same profes
sors, mostly from colleges on the
west end of campus, have taken
their coffee breaks at Andy's for
years, he said.
Naturally, student regulars aren't
around as long. Some may have only
been lunching here a few months or
a few years. But as one graduates,
another seems to hear about the
place or discover it walking by on R
street, Don said.
The menu has changed a little
over the years to have more baked
goods and a special zucchini bread
that Polly bakes from scratch daily.
In the last few weeks, the Ander
sens have featured "Specials from
the Past." These include chilly
cheesedogs, polish sausage and ether
items the Andersens sewed 10 years
ago from their snackbar.

They will continue to look for a

But Don said "the chance's aren't
good." No locations are available ont
the fringe of campus or in the down
town area, and there's just too much
competition from other restaurants
for an independent owner to sur
