cut down by the presence of a

accessible to the students and staff,
Howe said he hoped they would help
give directions and answer questions
about the Campus Security. It is a
public relations measure as well as a
theft preventive measure, he added.
"We'd like to have policemen

"People often only see them at night'
He credited Campus Security Chief
Gail Gade with the idea for the service.
"It was his way of getting closer to the
students and the staff with the

The service requires no additional
funds according to Howe. "We're not

continued indefinitely. Because it is a

have to be made, he said. "If it's
working, we'll keep it," he added.

in response to the regents endorsement of UNL
Uancellor James Zumbergs's plan to reorganize the
- University Health Center (UHC), two full-time physicians at
UHC have indicated that they may resign and th director
of the center refuses to comment on his status.
, Dr. Roger Bruce said he intends to resign "within the
next few months." Dr. Ralph Ewert said he remains
undecided. They are the only two full-time physicians t
the center and were not among the 27 doctors who sent a
letter to the Board of Regents in March indicating that they
would "sever all professional relationships with the center if
the chancellor's proposals were adopted.
The physicians' actions are in response to the
chancellor's proposed division of the center into two parts:
the Nebraska Center for Health Education, concerned with
education and research, and the University Health Center,
concerned with student health care. .
The regents, in the Saturday session and foIlow!n a
dosed hearing on tine matter last Friday evening, voted to
support Zumberge, but with Regents Ed Scftwartskopf of
Lincoln and (Cami'f ie) Elliott of Scottsbluff dissenting. '
Dr. Samuel Fuenning, the present director of the center,
has been appointed by Zumberge to head the Nebraska
Center for Health Education. Some of the physicians at the
center have contended the reorganization was devised to
depose Fuenning and that he was coerced into taking the
Fuenning declined to comment Thursday on whether he
will assume the director's position of the Nebraska center.
A UHC source, who asked to remain unnamed, said
Fuenning has received the appointment to the port, but has
yet to accept it.
SuDDort for Fuannino has baufi to risa unA fall iik a
barometer. The Nebraska Medical Assoc. (KfJIA) policy
commsites has "endorsed Dr. Samuel I. Fuenning 'and the
excellence of his ability" as medical dmctot off tha UNL
health center, according to UMA president Dr. Jack Cot, of
Omaha. , , ,
Coe was quoted In a letter to the regents chairman
Kermit Hansen as saying that the committee "suggested to
the Board of Regents that in any reorganization of any
university administrative policies, that care to bs taken not
to Interfere with tho method of health care delivery at the
student health center."
But In a telephone poll reless&d by the chancellor's
office and conducted by the UHC director's office, the 27
physicians seemed to waiver In their stated intentions. Six
ssid they wished to continue at the center, and 13 wert
undecided about their decision. The remainder sr retiring
or could not be readied.
Bruce stated he "wasn't surprised" by the board's
"They all had their minds msde up be fens we went to '
speak with them. It was only a sham to let ua talk in laid.

By Wes Albert
President Nixon's impeachment is "nearly certain" but his
actual removal from office appears less likely, American Civil
Liberties Union (ACLU) spokesman David Fishlow said
"It is unlikely that the House (of Representatives) will fail to
vote Nixon's impeachment," he told 15 students in the Nebraska '
Union. "But the Senate removing him from office is another
question entirely." .
Fishfow's speech, cosponsored by the Union Talks and Topics
Committee and Lincoln's ACLU, was one of several he is making
around the country to explain ACLU's Impeachment stand.
Ha is a former regional director and Indian Rights staff
member of ACLU.
Outlining a fist of "impeachable offenses" prepared by ACLU
last October, Fishlow said the evidence for impeachment is
"terrifying in its weight and personally frightening."
-"i -say .these things not as a radical but as a fellow concerned
about civil liberties," he said. "When I think about some of the
things happening in this country lately, it is really frightening."
According to Fishlow, the ACLU's impeachable offenses center
around what St calls "deliberate assaults on First Amendment
liberties" by President Nixon and his closest aides.
Such assaults include political surveillance of dissenters,
Interference with the freedom of the press and secret recordings .. .
of White House conversations, he said.
Fishlow ssid Nixon has approved wiretaps 3nd FBS
investigations of administration critics, particularly those cn the
White Mouse "enemies list." Journalists were among those singled
put by the White House, he said. ''
"Journalists well-known for their opposition to Nixon were
arrested or threatened with arrest for their coverage of the new,"
he said. ,
According to Fishlow, the reasons for impeaching Nixon go
beyond Watergate-connected offenses.
"Watergate is only one aspect of a long list of subjects which
have much greater bearing than just the burglary of an office," be
Other impeachable offenses listed by the ACLU include the
arrest of 13,000 anti-war demonstrators in Washington on May 7,
1971, and the secret bombing cf Cambodia in 1972, he said.
According to Fishlow, the ACLU considers the anit-war arrests'
to represent "interference with the right cf peaceful assembly and
"When you hear about mass arrests in Albania, think about
v-ihat heppened in Washington, D.C. In 1971 ," he said.
Fishlow predicted Nixon wiil resign if impeached rather than
risk being voted out of eff ice by the Senate.
' l'fi really like to see the Senate trial," be said. "We need to
prove that we can tske gny man in the country and subject him
to the law."
