two schools grew out of
OU's financial problems re
sulting from what Omaha
Sen, Richarrd Proud called
Omahans' unwillingness to
grant the school more tax
funds. Voters defeated a
proposed mill levy hike to
aid the school In elections
last May.
Carpenter predicted Oma
hans we M approve the
merger a two-to-one or
three-to-one majority and
said the move would be
"probably one of the great
est things that could happen
to the state."
"Hurriedly Conceived"
Another opponent of the
bill, Sen. Eric Rasmussen,
said the merger was "hur
riedly conceived" and that
more study on the move
was needed before the step
should be taken.
"I can't see why there's
a hurry up approach." Ras
mussen said.
LB736 was co-sponsored
by eight of the Omaha sen
ators. Those who did not
sign the bill were Batcheld
er, Pedersen. Harold Moy
lan and Eugene Mahoney.
Moylan did not vote on the
advancement motion and
Mahoney voted for the mo
tion. Legislative Bargaining
The final approval for
LB736 may rest with the
votes Omaha senators cast
on the proposed state sales
income tax bill, LB377. ac
cording to some observers.
Final affirmative votes
from outstate senators on
LB736 may be exchanged
for affirmative votes on the
tax bill from Omaha sena
tors, whose constituents are
a crime, in committee meet
ing Monday or Tuesday.
, Committee members vot
ed 3-2 to indefinitely post
pone the bill early in the
week but five affirmatives
are needed to kill the mea
sure In committee so t h e
bill was held for further ac
tion. Bill Attacked
The bill, introduced by
Sen. Donald Elrod, was at
tacked by several speakers
at the hearing.
Joe R. Seacrest. a Lin
coln newspaper executive,
told the committee the bill
would only be another state
obscenity law and a useless
one. Seacrest said there is
no need to have separate
bills on the books regulat
ing obscenity for minors and
Supporters of the bill
pointed to a similar New
York state law that was
upheld in the state's su
preme court.
Concerned Citizens
John Langston. a spokes
man for the Concerned Cit
izens Committee of Hast
ings, said the committee
supports 859 because "The
present legislation is not as
definite as it could be and
the terms are not as defined
as 359."
He said the bill would be
"useful in upgrading the
environment of youth in
our community."
Supporters of the meas
ure presented an amend
ment which would exempt
parents, churches and
schools from prosecution
under the law. Proponents
of the amendment said that
such groups may use ma
terial that could be called
.pornography for education
al purposes and should not
be liable under the law.
A representative of the
Nebraska Civil Liberties
Union (NCLU), David Le
vine. appeared to protest
the bill.
L e v i n e said, however,
that he believes the NCLU
would favor the amend
ment and support the bill

Thursday, Omaha Sen.
George Syas told the Legis
lature he would not vote for
the sales-income law "un
der any circumstances,"
but emphasized that he was
speaking only for himself
and that the Omaha delega
tion might supply some of
the supporting votes needed
to enact LB377 under the
emergency clause and get
the law into action by May
Emergency Clauses
The bill needs a two
thirds vote, 33, to be en
acted with the clause.
LB736 also carries the
emergency clause and
needs the 33 affirmative
votes to allow Omahans to
move ahead on setting up
an election and putting the
question to a vote immedi
ately. If the bill does not pass
with the emergency clause
it does not become effective
until three calendar months
after the session is adjorned.

Publisher's College Representatives
April 11
Holt, Rinehart and Winston, one of the oldest and
most successful publishers in America, is seeking
lield representatives for its expanding college pro
grams. The positions demand men with high moti
vation, outstanding human skills, and genuine
interest in education.
As a field representative you will represent the
company on college and university campuses, in
forming teachers of new materials and publishing
programs, interviewing them to ascertain their needs
in educational materials, working with them in the
development of these materials. You will be the
bridge between the publishing business and the
world of learning and research.
The work is enormously stimulating. It will keep
you in daily touch with the newest developments
in academic activity and in personal contact with
the scholars and professors who are leaders in these
vital fields.
Beginning salaries are exceptionally high; company
benefits are broad and generous; opportunities to
advance are outstanding as the publishing industry
participates directly in the "education boom" of
the next decade.
