"We had a piccolo, bass drum, tuba and cymbals. V(e
played it for him; it was ridiculous . . . terrible, but he loved
it," Alexandar said.
Alexander and Simpson said they took a little razzing
because they had been in the band so long.
Some of the freshman band members were in the fifth
and sixth grades when he was playing at the 1965 Sugar
bowl, Alexander said.
Simpson said he has some friends and some enemies
among those in the band, but he said he doesn't go around
"Several have my teethmarks in their rear ends from
marching band," he said. -
How has the band changed during their seven years?
Both agreed allowing women in the marching band in
fall 1972 was the only major change they had noticed.
Simpson said the first year women were allowed to
march, morale was hurt. But since then, female members
have become an integral part of the band, he said.
He said that in 1972 the government was going around
forcing organizations to "put women into this, put women
"We had to go out and beat the bushes to find five
women," he said. Now the band has 20 female members
and they are as much a part of the band as everyone else, he
Currently, Alexander and Simpson are on a committee
trying to raise $150,000 to send the band on a 3-week
marching tour of Europe. The band will give performances
similar to their halftime shows.
Alexander said that European bands do not give similar
performances. Previous American bands had been well
received in Europe, Simpson added.
What happens after the May trip? UNL loses two of its
steadiest players at football games. Both will be graduated
after this semester.

Regsnt Kermit Hansen suggested tho state assume responsibility for funding the
Law College library at a Regent's advisory board meeting Friday.
By Michael (OJ.) Nelson
It's not a troublesome word; it's easy to spell and
pronounce. But the meaning of those four letters might
send the Board of Regents on a semantic goose chase that
could result in a change in UNL's coed visitation
According to John Wiltse, a Harper Hall student
assistant,, tpe meaning of the word must be defined. Until it
is, he says, coed visitation regulations are contradictory.
Viltse, tpesking Friday at the Board of Regents
Advisory Board, said the UNL Student Code of Conduct
prohibits 244iour visitation only in rooms. But, he noted,
the rule is being applied to floor lounges and elevators at
He said he wants the regents to decide if a lounge or an
rn$evawtrxOTsidererrar room, ifjjctj-fw said, how can a
person stay within the open door policy when riding in an
elevator? If elevators are not rooms, he said, then why can't
students of the opposite sex be allowed in lounges after
The four regents who attended the meeting declined to
comment on the matter, fearing that discussion might
interfere with the pending Residence Hall Assoc. lawsuit.
The suit contests the legality of the coed visitation and
liquor regulations being enforced on the UNL campus.
Also at the advisory meeting, regents heard students ask
for more money for the Law College library, urge a unified
grading system for ail three campuses and complain about
the UNL advising system. .
UNL law students Becky Glover and Deanne Canar told
the regents that the college library needs about $90,000 to
purchase needed law texts. Glover said the books are not
"novelties, but basic books."
Canar said the enrollment of the law college has
increased while library purchases have stayed the same.
Regent Robert Raun suggested that law students seek
donations from attorneys to finance the books. But Regent
Kermit Hansen disagreed.
"This library is part of the ttate' responsibility' he
said. "This ought to go through the regular budgetary
Regents also heard two students from the University of
Nebraska at Omaha request that the plus system of grading,
used at UNL, be abolished. The two nojed that because
UNO does not use the plus system, there is an inequity
within the state system when a person transfers.
Km firady, vice president of the UNO student body,
said the UNO Student Senate and a f acu" iV-ttudent-staff
committee have turned down a proposed plus sytem at that
She said about 90 per cent of the nation's graduate
schools are on a no-plus system. Putting both campuses on
a plus system would therefore hurt a student who might be
applying to graduate school, she said. This is because the
plus grades are rounded off, she said.
ASUN President Ann Henry disagreed She said she hat
been applying to medical schools and has found tha plus
system more a help than a hindrance.
Hansen suggested the matter be Investigated by the
Regents Academic Committee, but he was warned by NU
President D. B. Varner that the UNL faculty might resent
regent interference with the grading system.
"This has been a subject of controversy since 2000
B.C.," he said. "The faculty dearly holds Its power to
handle the grading system."
Henry complained to the regents that the UNL advising
system is "inconsistent and useless to many students." She
said freshman acivbing Is particularly inadequate and
recommended a system which would use upperclassmen as
