' Asked To Pay
Parking Ticket
At 4:30 a. ml
Some 200 to 250 University
and Wesleyan students who
have overdue parking tickets
are on a list at the Lincoln
Police Department, accord
ing to Lt. Donald G. Smith,
of the Traffic Violations De
partment. Offenders who were picked
up included University stu
dent, Charles Scriven. Scriv
en said he was awakened at
4:30 a.m. Monday morning,
and escorted by two officers
to the police station where he
paid his fines.
Smith said the policy in
most cases of overdue park
ing fines was, to impound the
car of the offender. He add
ed, "We are using the pro
cedure of taking these stu
dents to the station to pay
their fines in order to save
them the $5 charge they
would have to pay if their
cars were impounded."
Scriven, who had failed to
pay a series of parking tick
ets, including some from last
year, was charged $2 a ticket.
Chief Warren Graves, re
sponding to the charges that
officers had picked Scriven up
at 4:30 a.m., said it "was
possible, but not probable."
"We would certainly not
encourage our officers to
waken anyone up that early
in the morning," he contin
ued. It was reported that there
were several other students
in the station at the same
time Monday morning.
Graves said "it was not like
ly that there were many
people in the station at that

SC Quizzes
About Bus
Questionnaires concerning
the intercampus bus are be
ing handed out by Student
Council members today, ac
cording to Bill Poppert, Park
ing Committee chairman.
The following questions ap
pear on the list:
Do you feel this bus service
is adequate to meet the needs
of your schedule?
How many times, this year,
have you been late or missed
classes due to this bus?
Do you feel this bus would
serve you better if it were to
make a stop between cam
puses? If yes, where?
Poppert said the facts
gained from this questionn
aire will help Student Council
and the administration to
make appropriate changes in
order to improve the service
of the bus.
Poppert also said that
many students are recieving
tickets for the violation of not
parking between marked stall
lines at all times.
He said that this regulation
holds true 24 hours a day.
Special care should be given,
he said, when parking near
the library in the evening
hours. Cars may not park on
the red lines or along the
curb, but must be within a
marked stall, he said.
