Computer goofs
on tuition bills
"I knew tuition was going to be higher, but tnis is
Tuition statements are $100 too ridiculous for about
1,800 resident students taking 13 hours this semester.
According to James Wickless, UNL bursar, a computer
mistake caused those students to be charged $385.50
instead of $285.50.
The computer program has been changed, so students
i should simply pay the correct amount and then records will
be clear, Wickless said.
Students who do not catch the error and pay the
incorrect amount will be refunded, Wickless said.
Unless a student can produce his or her cancelled check
for tuition, he or she will have to wait until the second
week in October for the refund, Wickless said. The refunds
can be picked up at the Bursar's office, Administration 204.

between 0 and ):30 p.m., after the
doen per ".mm-, in the reception line
had shaken h ind, and hobnobbed with
lesser ranking faculty and staff for
about two hours.
Zumberge did not appear amused
either by Virgil's surprise appearance
or the pointed verse, but admitted he
was offended by neithei .
"It was a r a ther clever
presentation," he said.
However, as an afterthought the
chancellor said he "was a little put off
by his anonymity." Because of the
incognito factor of the incident,
Zumbi:ige ,,rd he was "not going to
pay too much attention to it."
Another person not amused was
Miles Tomeraasen, UNL director of
business and finance.
"Some time when (Virgil) has two
or three hours, I'd like to explain the
vagaries of fund accounting to him,"
Tomeraasen said. The pins were paid
for by means of "outside
income"-nontax money such as gilts
and grants, he said. Money from one
of the discretionary funds at the
chancellor's disposal paid for the party

chuckled and said, "How about the.,
sports fans!" when Virgil first
bounded in front of him and
Zumberge in the reception line.
Schwarzkopf later said, "I don't

positive way and is not being an

about the daikened Centennial Room
and Union Ballroom, where food was

of his message's, piinted on pink, blue
