latest addition to the Union

little student input. The new

Proposed Ibudget cutbacks
The University's list of possible cuts is divided into
schedules to show the effect of the proposed adjustments on
the four major areas of operations and tax fund savings.
Schedule I, which proposes reduction or elimination of
direct university services to the state:
- MAKE the University Extension Division entirely
- DELAY by one year the opening of the new educational
television building. $100,000.
- ELIMINATION of the Bureau of Business Research,
$106,000. "The absence of readily available data on Nebraska
business . . . would hamper those who monitor the progress of
our state's economy," the report said.
- REDUCTION by 40 percent of the funding for the
Engineering Research Center, $100,000.
- PERSONNEL AND OPERATING CUTS in the ETV
programming. $100,000 to $320,000. The higher figure would
eliminate all ETV programming by the university.
- CLOSING of the State Museum and Mueller Planetarium
to all but a limited number of on-campus users, $53,500.
- REDUCTION OF OPERATIONS of the Conservation
and Survey Division, $30,000 to $50,000.
- ELIMINATION of the Center for Economic Education,
- ELIMINATION of the "all state" fine arts project,
- ABOLISHMENT of educational services to elementary
and secondary schools, $32,000.
- GENERAL CUTS, $16,200. These would include college
newsletters, museum bulletins and speakers services.
- REDUCTIONS AND ADJUSTMENTS in agricultural
extension and agricultural experiment station operations,
Schedule II, which covers curtailment of educational
- ADUSTMENTS in summer session staffing and tuition,
$250,000. About 100 courses and 40 faculty positions would
be eliminated, affecting the "educational choices" of about
1 000 students. Tuition would be increased.
- CURTAILMENT of faculty and graduate student
activities financed through the Research Council, $170,000.
- DELAY BY ONE YEAR the opening of the engineering
- REDUCTION of instructional improvement programs,
- ELIMINATION of graduate engineering courses in
- DEFERRAL of equipment purchases by teaching
- REDUCTION of 30 to 50 faculty positions, $300,000 to
- ELIMINATION of convocations, music programs, etc.,
$15,200. . ..
Schedule III. which covers "reduction or elimination of
direct university services to students":
- STUDENT ACADEMIC SERVICES that would be made
self-supporting or curtailed, $128,500.
- CURTAILMENT of scholarships, tuition waivers and
remissions not based on financial need, $100,000.
- MAKE THE PLACEMENT SERVICES totally
- CURTAILMENT of the new student orientation
program, $1 6,300.
Schedule IV, which covers "cutbacks in purchase of goods
FOREGOING of the 4.2 percent inflation factor figured into
the budget request for purchases of goods and services,
- REDUCTION of expenditures for maintenance of the
physical plant, $400,000.
- TERMINATION of purchases of services from the
Alumni Association and the University Foundation, $62,200.
Included are lists and records purchased from the alumni
group and handling of endowments by the foundation.
-NO SALARY INCREASES for personnel in the "higher
income levels," $300,000.
- REDUCTION in miscellaneous support of instruction,
- REDUCTION in faculty travel to professional meetings,
- REDUCTION in travel of administrators, $10,000.
- DEFERRAL of non-instructional equipment, $25,000.
The list prepared by the Exon administration shows how
the University could reduce its spending of state tax funds by
more than $1.2 million. ,
The Exon report states its 20-item list includes "only some
examples of the reductions. There are many more like these
Here is the governor's list, with some of the comments, and
the possible savings in state tax funds:
- MAID for the chancellor's house, $5,000.
RFC RUITER for regular student programs, $18,000.
I THE POST OF VICE CHANCELLOR FOR STUDENT
AFFAIRS, $34,500. This post currently is unfilled.
- ADMISSIONS operating costs reduction, $48,000. I ne
Exon list said this would leave the University with the same
pcr-student amounts set by the state colleges for admissions.
- THE POST OF SPECIAL COUNSEL to the (Lincoln
campus) president, $28,000. Carl Donaldson holds this
position which, the Exon report said, "didn t exist until the
man reached 65 and they put him in this post to give him
three years post-retirement salary."
- STUDENT HOUSING, $74,000. "Should besupported
from dormitory payments as is done in the colleges," the Exon
report said. "This should not require an increase in room rates
as the dormitory account is carrying a surplus."
- PLACEMENT SERVICE, $24,000. "Should be
supported by those students who benefit from the education.
The placement fee probably would be less than the $10 that
students in the state colleges are already paying and much less
than the $100 or more a public agency would charge," the
report said. ...
- ACCOUNTING, $29,000. The State Administrative
Services Department assumed "a large amount" of the
accounting load and the transfer wasn't reflected in the N.U.
budget, the report said.
- DATA PROCESSING, $110,000. Elimination of one
university computer would cut the costs, according to the
- PUBLIC RELATIONS, $80,000. The report says: "A
reduction of 3.5 professional and one clerical (positions), plus
supporting costs, on the grounds that state funds shouldn't be
spent in image-making and lobbying."
- PUBLICATIONS, $31,000. Publishing should be
self-supporting, the governor's office said.
- CATALOGS, $7,400. The report suggests printing fewer
catalogs or charging for them.
- NEBRASKA LAW REVIEW, $5,000. "This cost should
be carried by the lawyers and libraries which benefit from the
- ALUMNI ASSOCIATION, $35,000. The report says:
"The alumni should be willing to pay a few cents each to
support their association."
- GENERAL EXPENDITURES, $30,500. "This really was
a slush fund or it would have been allocated to specific
programs," the report said.
- INSTITUTIONAL TRAVEL, $8,000. This would be half
of the present travel budget.
- SUNDRY EQUIPMENT, $25,000. "Again a slush fund,"
the report said.
- PLANNING AND DESIGN, $210,000. The report says:
"Probably set up when new buildings were constantly being
built - even the NU request would indicate this will no longer
be the case."
- REMODELING, $400,000. Here are the comments:
"Not requested in capital construction (budget). There is still
$300,000 in the budget and when asked what this would be
used for, the reply was that they didn't know, but felt they
needed it because remodeling and renovation needed to
continue in an orderly fashion . , . and yet specific remodeling
projects were included in the capital construction budget."
- CHANCELLOR'S RESIDENCE EQUIPMENT, $4,500.
This comment: "Surely someone who makes $40,000 and lives
in a free house should be able to furnish it himself."
