People are disillusioned with the
traditional marriage norm and are looking
for alternatives, A UNL instructor in human
development and the family said Tuesday,
Our society only accepts the '"two person
heterosexual monogamous marital form,"
Patricia Knaub told a small group of students
in an informal rap session in the Nebraska
Union. Such a form is not realistic for many
people, Knaub said .
the primary goal of marriage mow is the
constant pursuit of happiness, Knaub said.
""This its the main basis for the different
kinds of marriage we have today,'" she said.
"Self-fulfillment seems to keep people
Hooking for new mates,"
The longer life span is too long for an
unacceptable union, she added,
Knaub said children don't usually hold a
family together today because of the
decreasing number of children and the
decreasing age of the mother at the lime of
the last child's birth. In I960 the average age
at which women had their last child was 26,
she said .
Knaub said dating and engagement can be
harmful to the marriage relationship,

Environmental Improvement Inc
gives Lincoln's garbage life
by H. 3. Cummins
Up to three tons of paper and 6,000 tin
cans per week are now channeled to a
"second life" through a recycling pick-up
station in Lincoln, according to Russ Miller,
a member of Lincoln's Citizens for
Environmental Improvement, Inc.
He said the 48th and Normal Streets site
receives nothing from the University and
"easily half to two-thirds of the people who
come arc over 50 years old."
MILLER CALLED THE quantity of
paper and tin cans turned back "nothing."
He said Lincoln's -daily newspapers turn out
161 tons of paper a week, and the National
Association of Tin Can Manufacturers
estimates that each person uses half a can a
Open Saturdays, 10 a.m. -5 p.m. the
renovated "Burger Barn" is manned by
volunteers, according to Jim Pattavina, 41
University student and executive secretary
of the environmental group.
The current site accepts newsprint,
cardboard, paper sacks and magazines. The
magazines must be separate from all ol her
paper. Miller said.
ALUMINUM OF ANY kind is taken, he
continued, as are tin cans, flattened and with
the labels removed.
Salvation Army trucks pick up the
gathered paper and lake (hem to a local
recycling company which buys it for b u
ton and resells it, usually in Chicago.
A new site -will hopefully be established
"in two to four weeks." Miller said. The new
site will also take brown and clear glass
bottles or jars.
He said the old site would be
-discontinued, because "everyone comes in
cars,"" so it would be bad for the
environment to -drive to two sites and emit
extra exhaust fumes.
MILLER SAID THERE will be no
recycling of green glass because there is not
enough sold in Lincoln to cover the costs.
"And 3 think I'll be lucky to get 5 per
cent," of all the glass sold in town, he added.
Two storage bins will crush and store the
glass until it goes to an 'Illinois glass
company. Miller explained.
He added the Lincoln group must ship 50
tons of glass to cover handling expenses.
Miller said his committee is investigating
recycling plastic and milk containers.
THE RECYCLING COMMITTEE is one
of 12 of the Citizens for Environmental
Improve me Inc. Other committees
concern themselves with problems that
include water, ail and over-population.
The 200-member group started on the
University campus during the Earth Day
observances two years ago. Pat lavina -said.
Last year Nancy Roman led a Free
University course on environmental control,
he said, and the group decided to
incorporate under -state laws and become ;i
civic rather than cam pus organization.
PATTAVINA SAID EIGHT temporary
sites were set up on Earth Day las; year to
advertize their first recycling -site that
opened in April. 1971.
NU seeks alternate
The University burns an estimated 5-0 tons of paper per week
according to Ronald Wright, assistant -direct or of business and
finance, but different methods of disposal are now being explored
at t he urging of the ASUN Environmental Task Force
The estimate was made in April, W71, according to Task
Force Chairman Ciary Cabelhouse, and it does not include trash
from Greek 'houses.
Cabelhouse said a 067 estimate showed the University
burned over five million tons of solid waste t hat year.
Data processing cards used in University computers are not
burned., but sold hack to the company from which t he University
bough t t hem, Gabel house said .
But Carl Donaldson, special consultant to the NU president,
clarified that, saying, "sometimes the companies !bw them to be
recycled and sometimes they don't want them, depending on the
Donaldson said any paper likely to have "foreign matter such
as cloth with it-like paper towels, napkins, etc cannot be sold
to recycling companies because t hey "can't afford to separate it ."
Cabelhouse expressed his belief that the University must
"work d irectly and regularly wit h a recycling company."
"Enter into a business -deal," he said. "That's the only way to
get anything done."
UNE's student newspaper. The Daily Nebraskan, plans to
recycle it s newsprint , according to editor C a ry Seacrest.
Twelve barrels will be dispersed over the two linco'ln
campuses in which "any newsprint but only newsprint" can be
