Senator requests debate on '68 NU merger
An Omaha senator, taking issue with an article
published recently in the American Assoc. of
University Professors bulletin, said Wednesday he will
publicly debate the UNL professor who wrote the
Sen. David Stahmer said he would like to publicly
debate Carroll McKibbin, chairman of UNL's political
science department, who authored the article that
discussed the political results of the merger of Omaha
University and the NU campus.
Stahmer said McKibbin wrote subjectively about
the issue without knowing the facts.
"Not only do I disagree with him, which would be
subjective," he said, "but I can produce facts to show
he's wrong, which is objective.
"McKibbin seems to be saying that we (Omaha
senators) are partly responsible for the financial
problems at UNL," he said. 'The chief point of his
article seems to be that the Omaha senators haven't
been cooperative in helping UNL."
McKibbin could not be reached for comment
Stahmer, a member of the Legislature's Budget
Committee, said he had not met with all the other
Omaha senators since an article appeared in the
Omaha World Hcr.ild last week about McKibbin's
McKibbin, in his report, writes, "It is still too
early to evaluate all of the political implications of
the 1968 merger. But one thing is certain at least at
this point: the unity that was supposed to have
developed between the Omaha and Lincoln
delegations in the Legislature in support of public
higher education has not yet occurred.
"What has developed is considerable competition
between tin- two cities over the limited financial
resources available to the university system, which
has resulted in such items as capital construction
priorities being ndulunced' between the Omaha and
McKibbin says in the report that it is obvious "the
Omaha senators got what they wanted; i.e., the state
relieved the city of the financial burden of the local
university. The outstate legislators did not suffer the
consequences they feared; i.e., the syphoning of large
amounts of funds from the state college budget to the
state university system and greatly ioci eased
appropriations for the universities.
"The Lincoln legislators have not yet received
what they had anticipated; i.e., a cooperative effort
with Omaha legislators in providing laicer
appropriations for the university."
McKibbin also cites resources available to improve
the educational program at UNO. Those sane
resources, he claims, have not been evident at UNI

The attorney for the Residence Hall Association (RHA) will
file a complaint today with Judge Warren K. Urbom in Fedual
District Court seeking an end to enforcement of univei :,i ly
regulations governing visitation and alcohol in university housing.
The attorney, John Stevens Berry, will file the complaint
today. RHA announced last week it would file suit in connection
with the regulations.
According to a statement released earlier by ASUN and R HA,
the reason for the lawsuit is to contest the provisions o!
visitation, open door and alcoholic beverage policies lo whii h all
students must comply.
The statement said the students involved were lading deim-d
