Some of the classes have 40 to 45 students in
them, Kellison said. Kellison said that ideally
there should be only 20 to 25 students in each

He said he hopes people who have applied for
the associate professor position also will be
interested in the chairmanship.
The salary for the second person in the
department is included in the current UNL
budget before the Nebraska Unicameral.
Kellison said that although the budget has not
been approved yet, he has "the understanding
that it has reasonably high priority.
"I can only talk to people and tell them that
there is the possibility that this position may not
be approved," he said.
The committee has not set specific
qualifications for the two jobs, he said.
'Compatibility important
"We don't want to categorize people," he
said. "We want to see what it will take to hire
them and then try to structure .things around
them. It is important to get two people who are
The additional person is needed for the
department because of increasing interest in
actuarial science classes, Kellison said.
This semester 88 students, including 20
graduate students, are taking one or more classes
in actuarial science.
Actuarial Science offers 19 hours of classes
with one section of each class being offered once
each academic year. Last semester, the
department offered nine hours of classes, this
semester it is offering 10. Kellison teaches all of
the classes.
"The size of classes has grown to where some
should be divided and some offered more
frequently. We can justify two persons with the
current load," he said.
Additional courses
Kellison said the addition also would let the
department offer additional courses, although
that would not be the main purpose.
He said, another person would give students
additional viewpoints and "guarantee the
continuity of the program."
This would mean that, if one instructor leaves
the University, the other could continue the
program without disruption, he said.
Free computer courses offered
A course that is free of tuition and costs.
lhat is what the Users Service of the
University of Nebraska Computer Network
(UNCN) is offering faculty members, staff and
students at UNL, the University of Nebraska at
Omaha (UNO) and the University Medical Center
UNCN will offer 1 1 short courses in computer
usage at lis Lincoln center in Nebraska Hall and
nine courses at its Omaha center. Courses vary in
length from one to six sessions.
The first course, Introduction to
Keypunching, begins today at 3:30 p.m. in
Nebraska Hall 235.
Jeff Rehm, statistical consultant at the UNL
Computer Facility, said the courses are open to
all UNL students, faculty members and staff.
Most courses will meet in the late afternoon
but a few will meet in the evening, he said.
Rehm said most of the courses do not require
prior knowledge of the computer system.
"We are offering them to help the user
understand the system and build a better
knowledge of computer-related topics," he said.
He said this will be helpful to those students
and faculty members who use the computers in
their classes. x
While the courses are free, some may require
students to buy a manual which "should not cost
more than $5," he said.
Courses offered concern keypunching, various
statistical packages, job control languages,
graphics and plottings.
Rehm said the courses will be helpful to
students in computer science, as well as to
students in business or other areas, who want to
learn to program computers for future
employment use. -
Anyone interested in the courses can get
information booklets and registration forms at
Nebraska Hall 225 and 235, Ferguson Hall 20
and College of Business Administration 1 43.
Art prints
to students
More than 300 art prints will be available to UNL students
Saturday from the UNL art lending library in the main lounge of
the Nebrasak Union. Pictures and frames may be borrowed without
charge for the semester with a current student identification card.
According to Sara Boatman, Nebraska Union Programs advisor,
numbers for priority to select pictures will be given out at 9:30
a.m. Saturday. They will be assigned on a first come, first serve
basis. Numbers will be called in order beginning at 10:30 a.m.
Boatman said the lending library is an excellent opportunity for
students to borrow prints and frames for their living quarters.
Few pictures remain after Saturday, Boatman said. If there are
any prints left, they may be picked up at Nebraska Union 115.
