One of the questions students must answer at the end of the semester
is whether to sell their textbooks or to keep them for possible future ref
erence. We hope the following information about the value of used text
books will assist you in that decision.
Current edition textbooks required for classes at UNL for
the upcoming semester are bought back at Nebaaska Bookstore at
50 of the regular price. The top value price extends through the reg
ular buyback period at the end of each semester and drops as the quan
tities required for classes are filled.
1 a t
Current edition textbooks which may be used for upcoming
semesters but which have not yet been ordered by the instructor are
bought at speculative prices between wholesale value and top value.
About half of these books will move up in value and half will decrease
in value as we get more information on class requirements.

'Gazette' staff splits;
wo papers formed" :
The "free or donation" slogan associated with distr.buto s of
the Lincoln Gazette may be heard twice as much bemuse of the
Gazette staff breakup, resulting in two new papers of the same
""The Gazette, a political newspaper, was pub'ti shed e last
time April 5 because of differing ideas between Ron Kurtenbach
and Bill Arth, Milton Yuan and Tom Headley, the tour
permanent staff members of the Gazette.
Arth, Yuan and Headley already have forme d a new
newspaper, the Nebraska Dispatch, which was published for the
first time Thursday. Kurtenbach hopes to begin his own paper
within the next two weeks. He will continue to call his paper the
Lincoln Gazette. , ,
Kurtenbach said the staff split was because of ideological
differences between myself, Bill Arth and Milton Yuan.
He said Arth and Yuan would reject some things submitted to
the Gazette because those things were "too personal and not
"I wanted the Gazette to print everything," Kurtenbach said.
"I wanted the paper to be an open, public accessible area.
He said the paper should have been more surprising and
experimental, and not as predictable as he thought it was getting.
"The Gazette was becoming a less vital paper and this
bothered me," Kurtenbach said.
Arth said the mechanics of the sp!it were "Milton, Tom and
myself-especially Milton and myself-decided we could no longer
work with Ron. Tom was close to us politically, and he decided
to go along with us if we decided to split."
Kurtenbach was asked to resign, Arth said, but he refused.
Finally they decided to split, with each side forming its own
The type of newspaper Kurtenbach wanted was more of a
literary magazine' said Arth. He said Kurtenbach wanted a
broader range in the type of material that appeared in the
"But 1 don't think that's the issue," Arth said.
"What really caused the split were two things-the
decision-making process and the direction we wanted the paper to
go," Arth said. . ,
Any of the four staff members of the Gazette had veto power,
"The resulting situation was that we could never reach a
decision because we would nearly always have a 3 to 1 vote," he
said. "Some of our meetings looked like the civil war."
"Ron is mora Interested In civil liberties and public access,"
Arth said. "Hs considered the feedback section (tha section of
the Gazette in which readers' letters were published) a sacred
Arth said if Kurtenbach couldn't get the other staff members
to agree to publish something sent to the paper, he would argue
that the article should be put in the feedback section.
Kurtenbach afd!.tf$' f&epe needed some ffgh! things put in ,
the paper, such as recipes, paltry ariumorwrsrWies 6nlBi'ngs siicrr
as women's liberation and ecology.
"When we struggle for serious things, we have to have some
light things in our life, otherwise we'll have no fulfillment in our
private lives," Kurtenbach said.
Concerning tha request for his resignation, Kurtenbach said,
"They wanted to drive ma out of the paper, but I wasn't about to
be terrorized out of a project I've been working on for a good
part of my life."
"They said if we split, both sides would have a new paper with
new names," he said. "But this was a concession in my opinion. It
was more of a ploy to drive me out."
He said he hopes to have his new Gazetts out within the next
two weeks, and that it may grow and it may not. He said the
paper still will be sold on a "free or donation" basis, as is the
Of the Nebraska Dispatch, Kurtenbach said, "I don't think
their paper has credibility. They will reject criticism they don't
.like. They'll strive for unity at the cost of honesty."
"I admire Bill and Milton for what they're trying to do," he
added, "but their credibility makes me suspect."
Arth said tha Nebraska Dispatch "will be pretty much like the
Gazette was. In fact, It will be tha Gazette without Ron."
Arth said he doesn't expect Kurtenbach to be very successful
with his new newspaper.
"He might put out a small paper, but I don't think he has the
people to do it," he said.
"I don't wish him failure, I just don't think he will be
successful with it," he added.
Arth said the split is something which already has occurred,
and it won't be discussed in the Dispatch.
"We won't declare war against Ron and his paper," he said.
Kurtenbach said all he wants is for the facts behind the split to
