Nelson: I'll be an
NELSON from page 1
He said he emphasized his
opposition to partial privatization
of Social Security, his support for
prescription-drug coverage and
his proposed farm income pro
tection plan, which he hopes will
be the cornerstone of the 2002
federal farm bill
Republicans were buzzing
over the weekend that according
to internal polls, Stenberg had
narrowed the gap and could win
by a small margin.
Nelson knows about close
races. He won the 1990
Democratic gubernatorial pri
mary by 42 votes. But he said his
campaign’s polls showed Stenberg
wouldn’t make a late surge.
In the end, Nelson said,
Nebraskans will favor his inde
pendent approach over that of
Stenberg, who has associated
himself with candidate George W.
Bush and Sen. Chuck HageL
“Nebraskans will see just two
names on the ballot, not all the
other names he’s been talking
about," Nelson said. “Voters are
going to decide which of us they
envision on the floor of the United
States Senate representing the
state of Nebraska. And they're
going to decide who they envision
deciding what’s best for the peo
ple of Nebraska, as opposed to
asking their political bosses.”
Stenberg says he'll
pull ahead today

Johanns said Stenberg is the
best candidate to represent the
majority of Nebraskans in
Washington, D.C., because
Stenberg’s conservative views
match the state’s voters.
“(Hiesday), 60 to 65 percent
of Nebraskans are going to vote
for change with George Bush,
and Don will be with them,"
Johanns said. “Ben (Nelson) will
go out tomorrow and cast a vote
for A1 Gore. That will be

On the election’s eve,
Stenberg urged the crowd of
about 50 supporters in the
hanger to continue working for
victory in what he called an
“important election for
Nebraska and the nation.”
“There’s still work to be done
and signs to go up,” Stenberg
said. “I expect a few of those
signs will be stolen tonight, so
we have to be out putting those

In other business, the
council approved two revi

nudity ban, which prohibited
the showing of genitals or a
womans breasts without cov
ering the nipple.
Monday’s revisions require
a fully opaque covering over
the areola, which is the area
around the nipple, as well as
the nipple. The revisions also
redefined nudity so the law

“Rock V the Vote 2000,” spon
sored fay the Service Council, will

Lauren Hampton, Service
Council facilitator, hopes to make
an impression on politicians by
having a large number of college
students vote in the election.
"I hope we can show the can
didates that we are interested in
political issues,” Hampton said.
“Hopefully, this will make a
difference in at least one person's
life, reminding them, they need to
go and vote.”
In order to achieve their goal,
the Service Council wifi be arrang
ing groups of students to meet at
Union Square at the top of the
hour, every hour to walk, or drive if
the weather is bad, to the Devaney
Center and vote.
Throughout the day, the
Service Council will be giving
away 200 Runza sandwiches,
Pepsi and popcorn.
Other events include a series
of motivational videos highlight
ing why it% important to vote and
a number of key speakers.
Speakers in the Nebraska
Union’s Crib from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

president, Mayor Don Wesley,
Sheila Murphy, the field director
for Victory 2000, the Republican
party campaign organization, Bill
Avery, adviser for the Young
Democrats, and Dave Oenbring, a

Other experts will speak at

KRNU will be broadcasting
live from the Nebraska Union
throughout the day, and KFRX will
talk with Service Council repre
sentatives in the morning.
Cheryl Heineman, a Service
Council member, said die council
has tried hard to balance both
sides of each issue by having a rep
resentative from each side.
“We're not trying to be biased
to any one particular issue,"
Heineman said. “I just hope it will

including the humanities and
the arts,” she said.
Joel Schafer, Association of
Students of the University of
Nebraska president, said he was
pleased with Perlman’s follow-up
on the report
Schafer said he, as well as
ASUN, supported the 20/20
Vision statement because it gives
the university direction.
“It’s not just a feel-good docu
ment put together to placate the
university community,” he said.
As for the prioritization that
accompanied the report, Schafer
said, identifying key classes is
something the university has to
“I don't think you can look at
prioritization as equaling pro
gram cuts and funding cuts,”
Perlman’s commitment to
the 20/20 report is beneficial,
regardless of whether Perlman
becomes the permanent chan
cellor, he said.
“I think (die 20/20 report) is a
focal point in his administration,
whatever capacity that is,”
Perlman, who has enthusias
tically supported the report, said
implementing the plan is not
something he’s doing to make a
name for himself as interim
The report was prepared and
released before Perlman took
over the reins as UNIJs leader.
"We’ve had faculty conversa
tions whether (the 20/20 report)
is the vision for the university,
and the answer seems to be yes,”
