Draper said UNL parking officials
$aid the only additional thing stu
* dents could do was to monitor the lots
I themselves. So they did, before last
%tturday’s football game against
Iowa State.
Wade, Draper and three other stu
dents, Jim Hansen, Michelle
Paulman and Dan Koehler, blocked
Off the entrances to three lots to non
permit holders from 10 a.m. to 1:30
p.m. Saturday.
Draper, a freshman political sci
ence major, said residents living in
Abel-Sandoz. always have had a prob
lem with unauthorized vehicles park
ing in the three Area 2 lots assigned to
The lots, located east of Sandoz,
on 19th and Vine streets and on 21st
and Vine streets, are designed to
gyjaccommodate about 616 vehicles,
psaid Wade, a sophomore biology
Because the lots on those streets
are shared with Area 1 permit hold
ers, parking spaces are limited to the
more than 1,500 students living in
Abel-Sandoz, he said.
This problem increases considera
bly on home football game days when
visitors, East Campus students and
commuter students all want to find a
space close to Memorial Stadium,
Wade said.
Draper said her biggest concern is
for the students who do not attend the
games. Students wanting to leave
campus must wait until after the
game starts if they want a parking
space when they return, she said.
Ron Fuller, UNL parking staff
assistant, said the lots are enforced 24
hours a day. But parking officials
only can issue citations for cars ille
gally parked in these lots because the
lots are not designated tow-away
I nose parked on campus who
qualify as visitors can write off up to
two parking citations, Wade said.
This basically gives people a free
place to park during football games,
he said.
Saturday, UNL parking officials
supplied the group with four police
radios to use in case they had any
problems, Draper said.
Although a few motorists who
were turned away were upset, the
volunteers didn’t experience any
severe problems. Draper said. The
group actually received a lot of posi
tive feedback, she said.
Wade said the group was kept
busy monitoring the lots.
Wade said he and Draper turned
away about 20 cars from the lot cast
of Sandoz. He said he even had to
chase a couple of cars that tried to
sneak into the lot
Hansen, a sophomore advertising ;
major, said he-and Koehler turned
away 50 to 75 cars at the 21st and
Vine street lot
Draper said monitoring the lots
was successful and spaces were avail
able after the game started.
Draper and Wade said they are
looking for more volunteers for the
last two games.
Fuller said this was the first time
anything like this had been tried and
he encourages other residence halls
to do the same.
‘‘It’s difficult for us to be every
where at the same time,” he said.
‘ ‘The volunteers helped us out as well
as themselves.”

AS UN to review Reunion beer plan
By Jana Pedersen
Senior Reporter
The Association of Students of
the University of Nebraska will
reconsider a resolution today
that would support efforts to sell beer
in the Reunion.
On Oct. 18, ASUN approved the
resolution and then voted to send it
back to committee after some sena
tors expressed concern that it wasn’t
worded clearly.
Since then, College of Business
Administration Sen. Bart Vitek, who
introduced the resolution, said the
Campus Life Committee has re
worded the resolution “to strengthen
some of the language and to make it
more clear.’’
Changes include the addition of a
clause stating that more than 50 per
cent of University of Nebraska-Lin
coln students are of the legal drinking
age, Vitek said.
He said the committee wanted to
emphasize that if students of legal
drinking age who live on campus
have a place to drink on campus, they
would not have to drink elsewhere
and drive home.
A separate clause outlines that
fact, he said. The clause states that
allowing the sale of beer in the Reun
ion, a place to which students can
walk instead of drive, promotes
“responsible drinking.”
Another clause, staling that UNL
officials allow the sale of alcohol in
Nebraska Union and Wick Alumni
Center for special occasions, was not
included in the revised version of the
resolution, Vitek said.
He said it was left out, even though
he thought it was “pertinent,” be
cause senators voted to remove a
similar section in the original ver
Vitek said he thought senators
would be satisfied with the second
version of the resolution.
“I don’t foresee any problems,”
he said. “The original did pass, so
I’m pretty confident this new resolu
tion will pass.”

New council to advise Gnesen
By Jana Pedersen
Senior Reporter
Following the example set by the Busi
ness Services Advisory Council, UNL
Chancellor Martin Massengale has set
up a council to advise James Griesen, vice
chancellor for student affairs, on student serv
ices at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
The Student Services Advisory Council is
made up of four faculty members, three stu
dents and one representative from the Ne
braska Alumni Association.
Coby Simerly, chairwoman of the council,
said the group will try to fulfill guidelines
established by Massengale and also work on its
own ideas.
According to guidelines, Simerly said, the
council will advise Gnesen on policies related
to student services, review student services
procedures, and assist in developing a periodic
review process for student services policies
and procedures.
At UNL, student affairs involves student
life outside the classroom, including admis
sions, scholarships and financial aid, multi
cultural affairs, housing, career planning and
placement, and other areas, according to infor
mation provided by Griesen’s office.
The Student Services Advisory Council
could offer advice on student policies in any
one of these areas.
For example, Griesen said, when debating
proposed changes in the student code of con
duct, he will receive input from the council and
the Association of Students of the University of
The idea for a student services council arose
from discussions with Massengalc, other vice
chancellors and members of the Faculty Sen
ate, Griesen said.
“I think it became obvious that we have an
area of campus where the faculty wasn’t very
involved,” he said.
Griesen said several advisory committees
currently exist on campus for different
branches of the university.
“We had covered everything but student
services,” he said.
Griesen said he hopes the Student Services
Advisory Council will be able to involve fac
ulty in the decision-making processes of the
student services area in the way that other
committees like the Business Services Advi
sory Council have involved faculty in other
John Goebel, UNL vice chancellor for busi
ness and finance, said that in the 1 1/2 years
since the Business Services Advisory Council
was established, it has been “invaluable.”
“It’s very, very satisfying to have a groupof
knowledgeable, well-informed people to gel a
reaction to changes,” he said.
Goebel said the business services council
has six voting members and advises him on
issues such as computer sales and physical
plant services.
Simerly said that when the Student Services
Advisory Council met for the first time last
week, members outlined two areas they want to
address: involving faculty members in accom
plishing student service objectives, and work
ing with Griescn to identify issues and prob
lems on campus.
AS UN President Bryan Hill, who serves on
the council, agreed that increasing faculty in
volvement in the student services area will be
a priority for the group.
“We’ll be trying to gel the faculty more
