Symposium to examine
to study visitation
RHA continues to work on student dorm visitation by
forming a Visitation Committee to study the matter, according
to RHA President Carolyn Grice.
Three weeks ago RHA executives met with dormitory
presidents to discuss the Board of Regents' extension of
visitation hours from six to 12 hours on Saturdays.
Most dorms at that time agreed not to honor the extension,
as one RHA executive said, "to give both parents and the
regents a different view of the visitation situation."
Each dorm president now will appoint a representative to
serve on the committee, which will have its first organizational
meeting at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Women's Residence Hall 106.
Originally, RHA was to draw up a new visitation proposal
to present to the regents Oct. 12, but decided it didn't have
enough time to do an adequate job, Grice said.

In light of the recent election of Juan Peron
as president of Argentina, the unprecedented
symposium at UNL Thursday and Friday
concerning Argentine-U.S. relations in the 60s
will be given greater impetus.
Although most of the symposium will be
devoted to the two countries' relations in the
60s, the last session will concentrate on"
prospects for the future. The symposium,
which features international scholars and
government officials, will be in the Nebraska
Union. According to Roberto Esquenazi-Mayo,
director of the UNL Institute for International
Studies and chairman of the symposium, the

"The timing of the conference increases the
symposium's importance," the director said,
"because of the recent developments in the
Argentine government and the political
situation in other Latin American countries."
He said that because this is the fin.;,
symposium of its kind in the U.S., there is a
possibility of national television coverage.
Esquenazi-Mayo said there is a tremendous
interest in the conference among students in

majoring in Latin American studies, Spanish
and history have been planning the symposium

plan the symposium.

about the two countries' relationship, he is
hopeful the students will get to know the
"The speakers are interested in meeting the
students," the director said. To increase the
student-speaker exchange, there will be no set
luncheon program, thus leaving more time for
discussion with a question and answer period
after the sessions, he said.
Faculty members from Arizona, Washington
and Iowa universities as well as Creighton
University students, will be attending the
symposium, Esquenazi-Mayo said. Raul
Estrada-Oyuela, secretary for cultural affairs,

UNL thefts eclipse 1 972 rate

Larceny from automobiles on campus during
the first month of school has doubled,
compared to the same period a year ago,
according to Gale Gade, chief of Campus
Security. Other campus crime rates have
remained about the same, he said.
In Septemlx;r 1972 six cases of theft from
automobiles were reported, according to
campus security records. As of Sept. 24, 1973,
14 cases had been reported. Gade predicted
that Septemlxii total would probably reach 16.
Burglaries within the dormitories have also
increased, according to campus security
records. Five have been reported so far,
compared with none in September 1972.
Larceny in the dormitories has been reported
eight times the same rate as a year ago. The
total property loss this fall is $2,000.
Gade said the difference between burglary
and larceny is that ihe former involves forced
entry. Forced entry can be as slight as twisting
a doorknob, he said.
"Theft is our biggest problem," Gade said.
He said that students are careful of their
possessions generally but often leave their
dormitoty doors unlocked.
Gade said that most people arrested for
campus crimes are not students. "Out of every
10 arrested in one or two months, probably six
or seven do not belong to the university," he
"We feel good about our program -that in a
school this large we are able to keep crime
down," Gade said. "Compared to a couple of
years ago, when our staff was low, we have
created a pretty good preventative atmosphere
Gade credited ihe dormitory patrol, student
security officers and increased patrolling of
parking lots as the major crime deterrant
"Students should lie made aware of campus
occurences," Gade said. "If we can prevent
criminal activity, then this is what it is all
Larceny in university buildings, has
decreased this year, Two cases were reported in
September 1973, compared to nine in
Miscellaneous larcenies, such as stealing pop
from the Nebraska Union, have remained the
same. Two cases were noted for this September,
as compared to three last. year.
There have been no reported incidents of
assault, rap; oi indecent exposure in 1973, fie
said. In September 192 four incidents of
assault were repor ted.
