GLSA proposal
to UPC attracts
controversy
By Kari Hulac
Staff Reporter
The University Program Council City and
Executive Board's approval of the Gay Lesbian
Student Association proposal to create a Gay
Lesbian Programming Committee is bringing
attention to GLSA and the role of UPC.
Rodney A. Bell II, GLSA president, said
although UPC members and other concerned
people brought up many ideological, moral and
religious questions on homosexuality during the
last few weeks, UPC shouldn't address that sort
of debate in making a decision.
"The issue is whether the committee should
be funded or could UPC serve gay and lesbian
students in another way," Bell said. "It is not a
moral question anymore than blacks were a
moral question in the 1960s. Gay and Tesbian
students are definitely a minority who need to
have their needs met."
Bell said a separate programming committee
under UPC City is needed because gay and les
bian students need an unbiased committee that
understands their needs.
"The committee would be geared toward ,
anyone who looks at people as people and to
educate and entertain homosexual and hetero
sexual people," Bell said.
Tim Teebken, senior arts and sciences major,
said the moral questions surrounding homosex
uality can't be ignored.
"When you have a moral decision you have to
go to the people," Teebken said. "You have to get
the public opinion. I believe there is a slumber
ing silent majority who are opposed, and a survey
would bring that out."
Vicky Jedlicka, GLSA vice president, said a
survey wouldn't work because people just
wouldn't take the time to fill it out. Bell said a
survey wouldn't be right because you would be
"stirring up the water." Bell said answers would
be distorted and unfair because they would be
dealing with a class of uneducated people.
"People would be using religion as fact. Reli
gion isn't fact or science," Bell said. "Morality
isn't fact it's people's opinions."
Teebken also said the claim that there is 2,400
homosexual students on campus needs to be
s u bstantiated.

Editor's note: The following is the
first of a four-part series giving infor
mation on transportation, lodging, night
life and the history of New Orleans for
those traveling to the Jan. 1 Sugar Bowl
in New Orleans.
The city of Cajun cooking, jazz,
voodoo and Mardi Gras awaits an influx
of Nebraskans for the New Year's Day
ritual of the Sugar Bowl.
According to the city's Chamber of
Commerce, New Orleans, La. is not
pronounced New Or-leens. The proper
pronunciation is N'awlines. N'Orlyuns.
or N'yawljuns.

New Orleans, aKo called 'i'lie
International City," started in 1(599 as a
French settlement on the banks of the
Mississippi River. It was named for the
French Duke d'Orleans, regent to the
child-king Louis XV. In 1762 it became
a Spanish territority. The land reverted
back to the French. Then Napoleon
Bonaparte sold New Orleans, and all
the land around it (up to the Canadian
border) to the United States.
This deverse past added to the
mysticism and magic that blacks from
Africa and the Caribbean brought. In
addition, the late influx of Germans
and Irish, and the arrival of the Cajuns,
has given New Orleans a personality all
its own.
New Orleans has a population of

land. Many of these people wandered
south and were accepted in New Orleans.
Creoles are the decendants of the
early settlers. Most of them claim a
mixture of Spanish and French heritage.
The Creoles and Cajuns developed the
cooking distinctive to this area. Creole
cooking includes lots of spices and
sauces. Cajun cooking, more of a rural
cuisine, is peppery-hot.
City dwellers cool down the hot
cooking with their magic. New Orleans
is the city that developed jazz, and is
the home of great musicians like Louis
Armstrong, Antoine "Fats" Domino and
George Lewis.
The city also is known as the Voodoo
capital of the country. It is said that in
the ISOOs a woman named Marie Laveau
cast powerful spells, Today, her follow
