Elgin Workers Want Delay
Elgin Bid Okay With Students
Ninety per cent of 100 students polled
by the Daily Nebraskan Monday approved
the University's bid for the Elgin Na
tional Watch Company plant in Lincoln.
However, 39 per cent felt that another
industry should be given a chance at the
building first
The poll consisted of an explanation of
the purchase, followed by 3 questions:
(1) Do you feel this was a wise move by
the University?
Only 10 per cent answered in the nega
tive. One student commented that "It will
take a large tax source away from the
city of Lincoln." Two felt that the cost of
readaption would be too great, while two
others said that it was too far away from
the present campus.
Several pointed out that unless more
space is available, the University would
have to raise its tuition to keep enroll
ment down. The purchase of the Elgin
plant would greatly eliminate this prob
lem. The fact that the campus will be ex
panding in the direction of the Elgin plant
was given as approval by others. The
parking problem would be solved to a
great extent with the block lot included
in the purchase, it was noted.
(2) Would you be willing to attend
classes or labs in the building when it
has been readapted?
Eight-three per cent said yes, while 15
per cent said no. Two per cent denied
comment.
However, others felt that the labs would
be no inconvenience. Another stated he
would be willing because of its "novelty."
An underground mechanical sidewalk was
suggested to save time in getting to dis
tant buildings.
One student quipped that it would be too
far to walk to the Crib for a cup of coffee.
Most of the respondents stated that they
would have little choice in the matter.
(3) If another industry is interested in
purchasing the Elgin plant, do you feel
the University should delay its offer?
Fifty-seven per cent answered in the
negative, with the consensus that the
University is as important as industry
and should go through with the offer be
cause of the saving in expense.
Of the 39 per cent who acknowledged in
the affirmative several students felt that
another industry would provide employ
ment for those who will lose their jobs
with the closing of the Elgin plant. They
pointed out that the increased unemploy
ment presents a greater need than that of
the University for more room.
