"Almost everyone in the university faculty members are discouraged,

defeatism and passismism about the basic cause of low morale. Faculty

"Quality departments and programs
that have taken many years to build are
being destroyed in only a few."
The proposal says low faculty morale
at UNL has become a cliche, but both
students and the state suffer when
salaries have increased much more
slowly than the average Nebraskan's
salary in the last six years, the proposal
"We believe that a state whose citi

million to a new sports facility for ath

to a bold initiative to deal with this
crisis," the proposal states.

Family Farm Act
By Tami Schuetze
Leaders of farm advocacy groups
disagreed about the proposed Family
Farm Act debate Wednesday night in
the East Union.
The discussion, featuring Nebraska
Farm Bureau President Bryce Neidig
and Helen Waller of the Save the Fam
ily Farm Coalition, was sponsored by
Farm Action Concerns Tomorrow's
Society, Alpha Zeta, and Young Farmers
Neidig said Farm Bureau opposes,
the act because it would take away
farmers' rights to make their own choi
ces in agriculture and would cause a
decline in exports.
Waller said the act is necessary so
farmers can make a profit. . .
The act requires the U.S. secretary of
agriculture to determine prices by pro
jected demand. This is the only propoal
designed to retain the family farm sys
tem while eliminating the tax burden
of subsidy payments, Waller said.
Under the full-participation supply
management program, 25 to 30 percent
of land now in production would be set
Expanding Farm Bureau's opposi
tion, Neidig asked, "Do we want the
right and freedom that is ours to make
our own choices in agriculture, or do
want someone else to make these deci-
sions for us?"
Waller argued that it is the farmers'
right to raise a crop and sell it for more
than it costs to put it in the ground.
"That's the only right we're talking
about," she said.
"As the system stands now, the
seller is powerless," Waller said. "You
(the farmer) get one price for your pro
duct, quoted by men sitting in offices
in Kansas City or Chicago. We have no
competition between buyers. The act
would give us this competition that is
so badly needed if the family farm is to
Neidig said that besides overall price,
effects of the act such as its impact on
exports should be considered.
"If this bill goes through, exports
will drop 40 percent," Neidig said.
In her rebuttal, Waller said the Uni
ted States would export fewer bushels,
but the net value would increase an
average of 77.5 percent annually over
the next nine years, a total of $108
"This will also save the tax payers
$41.2 milion in the first five years,"
