Tiewald: more buses
Continued from p. 1
More shopping centers would "drain business from downtown
Lincoln, making businesses move out and creating a dominc
effect," he said.
Tiwald said making Lincoln more attractive would include
creating more pedestrian malls. To insure the downtown area as the
hub of the city, changes would have to be made in the Lincoln
Transportation System (LTS).
He suggested increasing the size of the LTS fleet, improving the
route system, increasing the frequency of bus runs and creating a
central waiting area for bus riders.
The waiting area would be inside a building where bus riders
could be warm and comfortable, he said. He would like to make
this waiting area part of the city's Centrum Plan, he said.
Tiwald said a city-county merger would benefit the city by
eliminating duplication of services and by improving the level of
services, thus saving the taxpayers money.
"This consolidation can't and won't take place overnight," he
said. "Part of it depends on legality as far as a permissive legislation
goes. It's going to take time to get through' changes in state law."
'Time for action'
Merger has been studied and discussed and "it's time for
action," he said.
Tiwald said he also would like the council to consider using
solid wastes to generate electricity, which the Public Works Dept. is
He also said he is interested in preserving the older
neighborhoods in Lincoln and in assisting in housing rehabilitation
in those neighborhoods.
"It would be a shame to let these houses become blighted and
unattractive," he said. "Many people in these areas are of low
income, such as those older people who are on fixed incomes, and
they can't keep their houses in good repair."
He said the city should participate in housing rehabilitation.
Lincoln has many progressive people who have elected some
progressive public officials in recent years, Tiwald said.

Russia, China leader
change called rumor
By Mary Kay Roth
Rumors that Chinese or Russian leaders will soon be removed
from power result from American "wishful thinking," Sam Jaffe,
international journalist, said Thursday morning.
Jaffe a former ABC correspondent in Moscow and Hong Kong,
spoke with two United Nations (UN) officials at a news conference
in the Nebraska Student Union prior to opening ceremonies for the
Model United Nations.
He said many United States citizens hope new leaders in the two
communist nations will bring political upheaval.
But Jaffe termed these rumors "nonsense," and added that even
if either nation's leader leaves, no major policy changes will occur.
In a recent trip to the People's Republic of China, Jaffe said, "I
got the feeling of stability-nobody was uptight."
If Mao Tse Tung decides to step down, he continued, the
transition of power will be gradual and moderate.
"Even the Chinese probably don't know who their next leader
will be," he said, "but many young Chinese are being pushed up
into important positions of government." To the Chinese, Jaffe
explained, young means late thirties or forties.
He also recalled his experiences in Moscow as a foreign
Setting up journalists
"Russians have a tendency to set up journalists by sending out
trial balloons," Jaffe said, "and if they immediately believe the
rumors and go with the story, journalists can easily get in trouble."
Jaffe waited five hours after he first learned of Nikita
Khruschev's removal from the Soviet government, before he wrote
Jaffe was later expelled from the Soviet Union, due to a
colleague's story which wrongly predicted other Russian leaders
would soon be removed.
Although he admires journalists, Jaffe blamed the wire services
and newspapers for a negative image of the United Nations.
Events must be political or sensational to get headlines and the
public hears nothing about the other activities, he said.
Hiro Shibuya, a member of the UN Secretariate, agreed.
Attention on politics
He said over 80 per cent of the UN budget is aimed at economic
and social organizations, but political affairs receive all the
Shibuya pointed to the work done because of the present food
crisis. The UN has been studying population growth, the energy
problem and possible distribution mechanisms, he said, because the
food issue is not an isolated problem.
Little of this activity receives any publicity, he said.
Christopher Basttiscombe, first secretary of the United
Kingdom in Permanent Mission, suggested other problems with the
People expect too much from the organization, he explained,
because it can only operate with the consent of the nations
"The UN can avoid accidential wars," Basttiscombe said, "and
they have been very effective in this area."
