- However, things are looking up for
women's athletics, she said. Their
; budget this year is $60,000. Last year's
vwas about $15,000.
This year's budget includes $30,000
for full-tuiton waivers for women with
athletic talents. Thirty-nine women will
receive grants this year, Sullivan said.
., Asked if the women's athletic prog
ram was developed enough to warrant
giving $30,000 in financial grants,'
Sullivan responded that some lesser
quality athletes were given grants.
Sullivan said she didn't think in
creased money going into women's
athletics has put men on the defense.
-Rather, It has put women on the
offense, she said.

or Bob Devaney's attitude concerning

road in camparison to other colleges and
universities. Some universities, she
said, receive as much as $150,000 for
women's athletics while some private
institutions receive only $1 ,000 per year.
Women coaches have fared better in
salaries, this year, Sullivan said. Last
year, coaches were paid the equivalent
of teaching two classes. This year they
are paid the equivalent of teaching four.
Changes Sullivan said she would like
to see include: women in sports
receiving equal coverage in the sports
section; more participation in athletics
by women and female competitors being
treated as athletes.

Colleges seek funds)
By Lynn Silhasek
A meeting to discuss a possible lobbying by
UNL and the four Nebraska state colleges for
additional state financial aid has been set between
student body executives from the colleges and
UNL, according to ASUN president Ron Clingen
peel. Speaking at ASUN Senate meeting Wednesday
night, Clingenpeel said UNL and Nebraska state,
technical and community colleges received federal
incentive funds for the present school year, to
encourage a matching amount of state funds.
Funds were not appropriated by the state
legislature to match the grant, however, and if
' they are not appropriated next year, the federal
funds may no longer be available, Clingenpeel
said. The meeting has been set for Saturday at
The funds were appropriated through the State
Student Incentive Grant Program (SSIG), and
provided $50 million nationally to state schools,
according to Ritchie. He verified that Nebraska
had failed to match the federal funds it had
received through the program, but said he did not
have the exact figures on the amount of money
allocated to Nebraska schools by the program.
The money to schools was made available by the
Education Amendments of 1972.
State aid for education at UNL is available
already under several programs, including
Regents' scholarships, University awards, and
other tuition remission programs, Ritchie noted.
The total amount of state aid provided by these
programs is a little more than $600,000, he said.
In addition, the Legislature has appropriated
money to individual schools for various purposes,

aid for students has been small, considering rising
education costs, and "the Legislature has been

University of Minnesota.
The current agreements with the five
Midwest schools allow 70 Nebraska students
to attend each year while paying resident
tuition at the school. NU then pays the
difference between the respective univer

Acker said NU may have to Increase the
amount paid to schools accepting the
students. He said New Jersey University

Regent Edward Schwartzkopf of Lincoln,
said "there is no question that the state
needs a veterinary school. The only question
is whether the state can afford it." It is
estimated a school will cost $20 million to $50
million to build.
He said the regents, at their June meeting,
asked Zumberge and Acker to seek other
schools for possible contracts and try to
increase the number of NU applications
accepted at the schools with which the
university already has agreements.
Schwartzkopf said the regents have not
been removed from making a future decision
on the possible need for a Nebraska
veterinary school, even though the university
administration said they will not argue pro or
con for the establishment of a school.
"We must be right in the middle of the
issue," he said, "and be able to make a
decision as information becomes available."
