Chancellor Durward Varner con
siders the fulfillment of the University's
responsibility to Nebraska's black
citizens one of the University's biggest
He says he Intends to back up his
pledge made last week to students at
predominantly black Omaha Tech High
School to scrape up tuition money for
anv black student who wishes to attend
"I muke the flat guarantee that we
can get the money," said Varner, adding
he has no Idea how many blacks will
take him up on his offer.
"The distance between Omaha's Near
North Side and UNO is a hell of a
lot more than 36 blocks. It's years,"
the chancellor said.
Varner is confident he can meet his
committment of tuition money for blacks
because he says enough people recognize
the problem and many private founda
tions are interested in providing funds.
Another great problem for the
University is the library, according to
Varner who termed it "crucial, critical,
a crisis.,, The library's amount of study
space and acquisition of new books
is far below standards, he added.

Into the fire:
The unemployed graduate
by BILL SMITHERMAN
Nabraskan Staff Writer
With graduation day approaching, University
of Nebraska graduating seniors who don't get
drafted still face an unpleasant fact they can't
University Director of Placement Frank M.
Hallgren said there are definitely less jobs available
now than there were a year ago. "A year ago
virtually any college graduate who wanted a job
could get one, unless he placed great restrictions
on what he would do or where he would go.
Now, its going to be almost impossible for students
to get just what they want."
A NUMBER of interviewers who normally come
to the University have cancelled their recruiting
trips. Hallgren said some interviewers normally
cancel their trips, but that about twice as many
have cancelled this year as last.
The softened job market reflects a general
slow-down in the economy and cuts in government
spending, he said. Industry is in the process of
adjusting to the slower economy and it is difficult
to say how long the period of readjustment may
be, he added.
Hallgren noted that the demand for Ph.D's
13 down significantly. He explained that this is
because the Ph.D. expects a higher salary and
more responsibility than someone less educated.
BECAUSE OF this, companies are becoming
wary of hiring highly educated people whose talents
they cannot use fully, he said.
"Demand for Ph.D.'s in science is particularly
down," he said. "A Ph.D. in science and the equip
ment to support his work can cost over $100,000
a year. This is more than companies are willing
to pay now."
Different departments seem to have different
situations ranging from an acute job lack to an
abundance of jobs.
R. NEALE COPPLE, Director of the School
of Journalism, said graduates of that school have
had very little difficulty getting jobs, unless they
wanted a job in a specific location.
Copple added that salaries for students
graduating from the Nebraska school seem to be
an average of $10-13 a week higher than the national
"The demand is down some, but not much,"
he said. "At one time we had nine or ten possible
jobs listed with us for every graduate; now that
number has gone down to about five.
"PROSPECTS ARE bleak for graduates with
chemical engineering degrees seeking jobs this
year," Robert C. Larson, assistant professor of
chemistry said. "There is no question that spending
is down this year and thus so are employment
He said the main opportunities for chemical
engineers in the future will be the anti-pollution
question and the research it will bring.
Most graduates, "especially the good ones" will
be placed this year, but their choices will be
substantially less than in past years, he said.
