Construction rocks campus
by Duane Leibhart
Probably the most interesting thing about
the landscaping activity on campus right now is
an unobtrusive .red granite boulder that has
been placed on a stand erected outside the
northeast corner of Morrill Hall.
The glacial rock weighs several tons and
originally sat atop a bluff overlooking the
Missouri River in Nebraska's Cedar County.
The boulder it covered with hieroglyphics
carved on it by early Nebraska residents.
Director of the University museum Bertrand
Schultz said the rock was discovered in 1869 by
the first professor of earth sciences at the
University. He later became director of the
The class of 1892 carted the boulder to the
University and sat it in front of the old
University library. Schultz said it reposed in
what is now Sheldon Art Gallery's sculpture
He said students used it to sit on, and have
worn the rock with writing. The rock is now on
a raised stand to prevent further wear from
The director said the rock was almost hauled
away when a construction company landscaped
the sculpture garden area. Schultz noticed that
the construction plans called for the removal of
a boulder. It turned out to be that big red
The area at the corner of the museum will be
a place for students to relax and ponder those
little turkey tracks and other hieroglyphics.
While they are pondering, it they decide
they need to mail something or buy some
postage stamps, they can stroll southeast across
the street. On the corner of that parking lot, a
self-service postal station is to be constructed.
The University must provide a platform for
the building, but the U.S. Postal Service will
construct the pagoda like structure.
Assistant Director of Business and Finance
Ron Wright said long range plans for the
University call for a small parking lot on
the corner of 16th and R Streets where the old
Nebraska Educational Television buildings were
torn down. There will be space left over even
after that is built though, he added.
The director said he would favor making
that area into a park as . suggested to the
administration by the ASUN Senate.
Wright said some trees and bushes are also
being transplanted from the area north of Love
Library where a library addition will be
constructed. "It is either take the trees out now
or wait until the bulldozers do," he added.
By hook or by crook. . .
Law professors at the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln haven't given up hope yet on
receiving money for a new building.
Money was not appropriated for a Law
College building in this year's University
"We're unhappy about it," said Wallace
Rudolph, UNL law professor. "But we're
hopeful we'll get it next year. We came closer
The Law College is so overcrowded now that
"we're turning down seven, eight, or nine
students for each we accept now," he said.
In this condition "we're not giving the kind
of legal education we want to or that is
demanded," Rudolph said.
