blocks to reach their destinations may hot really
need to go to the trouble, according to Dick Frank,
manager of the Lincoln Transportation System
An inter-campus' shuttle bus system, a new
addition to the UNL campus, got its start early this
semester, according to Frank.
The system was started for a number of reasons,
John Duve, university parking coordinator,
explained, such as helping to not only alleviate
traffic and parking problems on campus but to also
provide a greater service for faculty and students.
"Last fall when the energy crisis gave us quite a
scare we wanted to make it possible for a person to
leave his home and come to campus without
having to use a car," Duve said.
"Besides this, the university didn't have any
direct ties with the city bus system until we started
The mini-bus begins its run at 7:15 a.m. The
rider pays one dime for direct service from campus
to the downtown area, or if he is making
connections with a bus downtown the fee is 30
Duve is presently working on scheduling
revisions for next semester for not only the
mini-bus, but also the City Campus to East
Campus shuttle bus system. Duve said LTS hopes
to increase the number of riders on the buses next
semester through these changes and also through
"The ridership of the mini-bus definitely has
been on the increase since the service began, but
the real success will be able to be measured after
about six months," Duve said.
Native jewelry becomes popular

The price of an individual piece of

Silversmithing as an.AmericarUndlh
art is relatively new to the cuTtu'r'ei or
the Southwest tribes. The Navaho prob-,
ably were the first to learn it,' from
Mexican silversmiths,, sometime in the
early 18th century.
Various pueblo tribes, including the
Zuni, Hope and Santa Domingo, learned
the art from the Navaho. The Zuni
traditionally had used turquoise and
shells as jewelry, and they incorporated
these materials into their silverwork.
Although many Indian artisans now
use the styles of other tribes for their
jewelry, Navaho pieces generally are the
most massive, with emphasis on the
silver rather than on the stones.
Turquoise pieces in traditional Navaho
jewelry usually are not as highly
polished or finely cut as in other styles.
Zuni work, which Ruch said probably
is the best known style next to the
Navaho, usually is distinguished by
small, finely cut chips of turquoise and
shell, often red coral, inlaid with
intricate designs in the metal.
Ruch said' much Zuni-style jewelry
now sold in the Midwest acutaliy is
made by Navaho artisans.
Hopi jewelry, made by a complex
process of bonding pieces of metal
together, resembles intaglio work,
where the design is depressed below the
surface of the metal.
..The Santa Domingan craftsmen gen
erally use heishe, or beads, of turquoise
and other minerals, strung into brace

silversmiths used to be able to 6uy their
turquoise simply by the look and feeTof

Supply running short
Now, he said, the supply of turquoise
is running short, and most artisans buy
by the weight, measured in carats. In
addition, he said, recently made pieces
indicate the craftsmen are cutting their
stones more shallowly, to make each
piece of turquoise produce greater
numbers of finished works.
Most native silversmiths are well paid
for their work, according to Ruch, and
they usually make the jewelry as a
But some other Southwest .American
Indian arts, such as rug and basket
weaving, are in danger of dying out
because the artisans are not being paid
enough for their work, he said.
Such arts may be passed on in
families and still are done as hobbies, he
said, but the craftsmen can't afford to
do the work professionally because of
the low pay, and Ruch said the
Southwest weaving arts soon may be
