Benes Steele , Anderson VOICE hopes bad luck ends By Chuck Green Senior Reporter Executive candidates from the VOICE party are hoping the string of bad luck that has plagued them in the last couple of weeks won’t carry into Wednesday night’s ASUN elections. “With the excep tion of the last few IWMBBlilil weeks, our cam paigning has gone really well,” said Trent Steele, VOICE’S first vice presidential candi date. “Then, things started happen ing.” Steele was referring to the misfor tunesof Keith Benes, the party’s presi dential candidate. Last week, Benes was injured when he lost control of his car and slammed into a tree. Two weeks earlier, he missed the first Association of the Students of the University of Nebraska debate with representatives from PARTY, VOICE’S opponent, because of illness. “Before that, Keith has been out -44--— I’d like to see students get involved in their government, and it’s important that they do so they can choose the government that most fairly represents them. —Anderson VOICE second vice-presiden tial candidate -ft - there working very, very hard, and we think we have a good chance Wednes day night,” Steele said. VOICE’S platform objectives in clude: • Improvement and repair of Uni versity of Nebraska-Lincoln build ings. • Opposition to the inclusion of minuses in the grading system. • An attempt to hold student fees to a zero-percent increase for 1994. • Working for investment of out side donations to the university in academic programs rather than art work. • Trying to gain support for stron ger English standards for graduate assistants. • Increasing the number of bicycle racks in high-traffic areas. • Paving existing gravel parking lots. • Installing a student parking czar to oversee all student parking con cerns. • Improved snow-removal priori ties for students with disabilities. Jill Anderson, VOICE’S second vice-presidential candidate, said she hoped there would be a large voting turnout for Wednesday’s election. “I think that’s very important to the credibility of ASUN,” Anderson said. “I’d like to see students get involved in their government, and it’s important that they do so they can choose the government that most fairly represents them.’’ Dietz Strong Maser Dietz says PARTY not a joke By Chuck Green Senior Reporter What began as a joke to some has turned into a serious contender to lead ASUN into the next year. PARTY — whose ticket includes Steve Dietz, presidential candidate; Leslie Strong, first vice-presidential candidate; and Matt Maser, second vice-presidential candidate — an nounced its platform in January with such objectives as bringing rock con certs to Memorial Stadium and solv ing thccountry's unemployment prob lem. “Actually, it wasn’t really meant as a joke,” Dietz said. “But thought of making the whole thing a farce did cross our minds.” Strong agreed that PARTY candi dates had planned a “light-hearted approach” to the election. But Dietz said that idea soon evapo rated. “The more we got into it, the more we found that there really were people who thought the way we did, and we -44 The more wo got into It, the more we found that there really were people who thought the way we did, and we decided that we needed to do some thing. — Dietz PARTY presidential candidate —-ft - decided lhai we needed to do some thing,” he said. Besides the light-hearted objec tives, PARTY’S platform includes: • A more effective evaluation process for the university’s budget. • A ‘‘wet campus,” which allows for the consumption of alcohol on the University of Ncbraska-Lincoln cam pus. • The development of a President’s Advisory Council to ad dress multicultural issues. Dietz said the council would eliminate bureau cracy, allowing students to go di rectly to the ASUN president, who in turn would go directly to the NU Board of Regents. • Promotion of a campus envi ronment receptive to safe sex. But with Wednesday’s election growing closer, Dietz said a PARTY victory would be unlikely. “I would love to do this job.” he said. “But as far as politics go, it’s pretty unrealistic.” However, Dietz said, PARTY ac complished what they had intended from the outset. “We really wanted to make people step back and take a look at how these elections are run and what they need to do to belter govern the student body,” Dietz said. “If we can make even a few people who are running question why they’re doing it, then the whole thing will be a success.” KHA bill would keep members off AS UN George K. Stephan Staff Reporter Two bills lhal would prevent any elected member of the Residence Hall Association from serving in an elected position in ASUN created some argu when submitted at an RHA meeting Sunday. The bills, which will be voted on March 14, state that being a member of both organizations | createdaconflictof -J interest and “could result in serious time constraints on the student.” Sandoz Sen. Cara Catlett, who said she was one of only a few students involved in both organizations, op posed the legislation and urged other members to seriously study the bill and be aware of its consequences. Catlett said having RHA mem bers involved in both organizations helped smooth ouloperalions between the two student organizations. Andrew Loudon, speaker of the AS UN senate, appeared briefly dur ing the meeting to urge representa tives to vote against the measures. If approved, Loudon said, the mea sure could slop many ideally quali fied students with proven representa tive leadership qualities from partici pating in ASUN. In other business, it was announced that the RHA amendment passed two weeks ago banning smoking in food service was approved by the UNL Division of Housing and would prob ably become effective next August. Also, a letter from Doug Zatechka, director of housing, was distributed to representatives concerning last year’s paper towel controversy. • The letter said that housing would continue the policy reinstated last fall of keeping paper towels in residence hall restrooms, despite RHA disap proval. RHA gained approval to have the paper towels removed last summer because of ecological problems caused by disposable paper products. The housing department reinstalled the paper towels last fall after an outbreak of shigella in Lincoln.
