Saad said the removal of tobac
co products would cause other
product sales to fall.
“When people come to the infor
mation desks to buy cigarettes or
chew, they usually buy something
else: pop, candy, snack foods,” Saad
said. “If we cut off tobacco sales, we
also lose other revenue.”
Union Board advisor Gregg
Jablpnski said the union’s budget
could be adjusted accordingly to
make up fpr ^e loss in sales from
students $oi buying other products
when buying tobacco products.
“The budget does speculate
that other sales - candy, pop, snack
foods - will drop off as well,”
Swanson said Union Board has
been consistent in its opinion on
The Union Board always has
been concerned about what effect
the removal of tobacco sales would
have on student fees, he said.
“The union is meant to provide
services to the students of this
campus,” Saad said. “This is one of
the things the students want, and it
is wrong for administration to dis
regard student input.”
The Union Board is not the only
student organization that supports
the sale of tobacco on campus.
The Residence Hall
Association, as well as the
Association of Students of the
University of Nebraska, both sup
port the sale of tobacco on City and
“Removing tobacco sales off of
campus is not going to cut down
the number of students who
smoke,” RHA President Ben
Wallace said. “All it does is cut
down on the money the campus
brings in and raise student fees.”
Is the truth really
The American public appears absolutely convinced that the U.S. government knows more
about UFO's than it is letting on. In a Gallup poll conducted last year, 71% of Americans said
that the government is hiding something it knows about UFO's. The poll also found that 45%
think that UFO's have actually visited Earth, and 12% say that they have actually seen a UFO.

analyzed every year right here in Nebraska’s capital
city. Now you can be a part of that. Gallup is currently
hiring full-time and part-time telephone interviewers to
