ASUN senators Adopt-A-Block
'Downtown reaps benefits asjorganizations help keep streets clean
By Tasha Kelter

After weeks of listening to politi
cians call for cleaner campaigns,sane
A SUN senators called for cleaner
streets Wednesday, picking up trash
along 0 Street between 13th and 15th
The Association of the Students of
the University of Nebraska performed
the community service in conjunction
with the Downtown Neighborhood
Association’s Adopt-A-Block pro
First vice president Jason Bynum
and Campus Life Committee chair
woman Amy Rager organized the
cleanup. About 10 A SUN members
pitched in to clean up the street.
“It’s a small but significant contri
bution,” Bynum said.
Senators who took part in the clean
up said the street was dirty, with what
Rager described as “more cigarette
butts than I’ve ever seen in my life”.
Participating senators all agreed
that the abundance of cigarette butts
would make them think twice about
tossing a cigarette butt out the window.
Despite the filth, Bynum said the
clean-up was enjoyable.
“We enjoyed it,” Bynum said. “We
swept the streets, cleaned the streets
and still had a good time.”
Sheila Reiter, Vice president of the
Downtown Neighborhood Associa
tion^said although there is a constant
effort on the part of Lincoln mainte
nance crews to keep the streets look
ing decent, the streets look better when
special attention is given to specific
She said most groups pick up
leaves, ,piek cigarette butts out of
shrubbery and scrub sidewalks with
equipment provided by the Downtown
Groups that have adopted blocks
also include the University of Ne
braska-Lincoln Alumni Association
and Mad Dads, said Barbara Arendt,
founder of Adopt-A-Block. There are
about 40 blocks in downtown Lincoln,
and she said only 10 or 11 blocks have
Arendt said any organizations need
ing community service projects were
welcome to call the Downtown Lincoln
Association and set up a contract.
* Also on Wednesday, ASUN had its
weekly senate meeting at which Jay..
Nelson, the new law senator, was sworn
in. Nelson said he was looking forward
to showing students that their govern
ment is not detached from the students’
In other ASUN news, Special Top
ics Committee Chairman Viet Hoang
said he is working with Amy Kruse,
student body president at the Univer
sity of Nebraska at Kearney, in the ini
tial stages of proposing a fall break.
He said the bulk of the planning would
be rearranging the schedule.
NU students are required to have
15 weeks of instruction in the first se
mester, he said. A fall break would re
quire classes to begin earlier or finish
later. He said he would like to hear stu
dents about opinions on the matter.

Tenure discussed at Academic Senate
By Kasey Berber
Tenure was once again the main
topic of discussion at Tuesday’s
UNL Academic Senate meeting
Senate members reviewed a
document titled “The Academic
Context for Periodic Review of Ten
ured Faculty at UNL” and examined
the document’s strengths and weak
The document will be further ex
amined and voted on at the Dep.3
Academic Senate meeting.
Chancellor James Moeser said
tenure’s image was often miscon
“Tenure is not what one of my
friends like to call it—an iron lunch
box,” he said. “(Tenure) is a guar
antee of academic freedom.”
But, Moeser said, tenure should
not be easily attainable.
“It should be very difficult to ob
tain and it should also be hard to
take a#ay” Nfeeser said.
Janssen, of the Southeast
Rese^b & E^teteion Center, said

“Tb gi ve up tenure for a non-ten
ure position is very anxiety-filled,”
James Goedert, associate pfo
fessor of construction systems tech
nology, said tenure is sometimes
abused by faculty who use it as an
Peter Bleed, president of the
Academic Senate, disagreed.
“What I see in this university is
dedicated and hard-working indi
viduals,” he said, “those who are not
are in the minority.”
Later discussion on tenure re
volved around a recent proposed
bylaw amendment of the NU Board
If amended, the bylaw change
would keep faculty members from
appealing to the board in tenure
Moeser proposed that tenure
cases should instead be brought
before an external committee in the
faculty member’s field.
“An unbiased committee from
outside our university would be bet
ter able to rule on cases than the
Board of Regents,” he said.
