The Daily Nebraskan is to begin issuing a new
magazine Saturday. The magazine, called First Down,
is to be circulated at each home football game.
First Down will include a roster of both teams and
stories on players and coaches. The format will be
similar to the friday magazine which appeared in the
Daily Nebraskan last year.
First Down, published in a limited edition of
3,000 copies, will be sold on the UNL campus and
downtown by members of the Corncobs, UNL spirit
The magazines will sell for 10 cents each.
First Down will be sold instead of being circulated
free because the magazine receives no student fee

Phase IV fails to halt NU
tuition, dormitory rate hike
Along with the price of meat, tuition and
dormitory rates have risen this fall.
When President Nixon announced the
Phase IV economic controls in June there
was a question whether planned rate
increases for the fall semester would be able
to go into effect.
According to Margaret Wenke, in charge
of residence hall assignments, there was
never any question whether the dorm rates
would be increased. The decision had been
made and contracts already had been made
up by April, she said.
The rate for a double room is $1,020 for
the year,' an increase of $80 over last year's
rate of $940.
The University also will receive nearly $1
million in additional revenue from tuition
increases during this fiscal year.
That includes $978,428 in tuition
increases from undergraduate, graduate and
medical students, as well as from other
professional areas, such as dentistry and
According to former NU Executive Vice
President Howard R. Neville, it was not
certain whether the University's new tuition
structure would be considered an increase
under the price freeze guidelines.
Technically, the per-hour rates are the
same. The difference is that in the past
students who carried 12 to 16 hours paid a
catch-all rate based on 12 hours.
This semester the catch-all rate has been
removed and students will pay a flat $18
per-hour rate. For most students this will be
an increase of about $36 a semester.
UNL, tech college
use joint teaching
By Rebecca Ross
How does a university train industrial arts majors in a
setting not designed for practical courses in welding, auto
mechanics or electronics? And where do students go for career
training after dropping out of a university?
The Southeast Technical Community College Lincoln
campus is helping to supply answers to these questions,
according to Max Hansen, chairman of UNL Teachers College
industrial education department.
Hansen said a major problem facing universities with
industrial arts students is where to train them.
UNL has solved this problem through an arrangement with
the community college, formerly called Lincoln Technical
College, he said.
About 70 UNL industrial arts majors register and pay
tuition for courses in welding, electronics, drafting, machine
metal processing and auto mechanics through the university.
They attend these classes at the community college. ,
'The Board of Regents is reluctant to allocate money for
auto mechanics or drafting laboratories," he said, "but we
have to train our majors in these areas."
Hansen said the department formerly enrolled its students
in engineering courses, but he said the scope of engineering
education has changed, and it no longer includes courses
applying to basic industrial arts training.
"When someone thinks of a university," he said, "they
usually think of scholarship with a concentration on sciences
or humanities. It is hard to convince them to bring practical
courses in to this setting."
The arrangement with the community college, in its second
year, gives the majors the experience they need to teach
industrial arts, Hansen said.
Besides the industrial arts students, Rosemary Horner,
director of student services at the community college, said the
school attracts some UNL dropouts.
Horner said she has talked to several students who say they
became disenchancjed with the university and liked the
college's career programs.
Horner said the college offers a two-year associate degree,
with 60 per cent of the work in technical areas and 40 per cent
in social sciences, a diploma with 80 per cent technical work
and a certificate with 90 per cent technical work.
She said the college offers programs in the following areas:
technical, industrial and environmental technology, machine
tool technology, fire science technology, electronics, auto
mechanics, food service management, health technology,
mental health technology, and a secretarial-clerical program.
The college doesn't have a central campus, but has Its
administrative offices at Whittier Jr. High School and holds
classes in several different places, Horner said.
She estimated that the total cost of attending the college
for one year would be $500. This includes tuition, books and
Horner said the 710 students attending the college come
from varied backgrounds. "One-third of our students come
directly from high school," she said. Another third are In their
middle 20s, and the rest include porsons who want to get into
a1 new job area."
