    Campus bus report
sent to the chancellor
Options for financing intcr-campus bus sendee were presented
to the Council on Student Life (CSL) Thursday night by the CSL
Ad Hoc Bus Committee.
CSL's recommendation and official approval will be forwarded,
along with the report, to Chancellor James Zumberge, Vice
Chancellor for Student Affairs Ken Bader, and University Business
Manager Ron Wright, according to CSL chairman Lyle Young.
An option recommending "complete university support funded
by state appropriations" was given first priority by the committee
and CSL. Reasons for this recommendation included that "cost
cannot be the responsibility of consumers since the decision to
split the campuses was made by management years ago. Likewise,
the fact that housing is separated on the two campuses is no fault
of the students."
"There is no option to have oil classes on one campus," the
report continued. "It is as essential to academic functions as are
heated classrooms and sidewalks."
The second option suggested "partial rider support with the
University covering the balance from state appropriations." Under
this option students would pay $15 per year for a bus pass and no
free bus passes would be given with parking permits, as has beer?
done in previous years. A 25-cent fee would be charged for each
rider without a bus pass.
The report recommended that a buss pass sticker be attached to
the student I.D. card to limit transfer of passes between students.
The second option included a suggestion for "keeping busing in an
autonomous account except for management support provided by
the Campus Police Department."
A third option was "support by riders with the university
covering the balance with student fees." A fourth proposal was to
finance the buses with "complete support from University
Programs and facilities Fees." These last proposals were given least
priority by the committee, according to CSL and committee
member Dave Howie tt.
Other committee members included Dr. Dick Armstrong of
CSL, and Henry Nuxoll, Mary Ann Sward and Rosann Uerling,
students living on East Campus.
In other business, CSL approved a proposal by Wendy
Reitmeirer, Housing Policy Committee chairman, and Armstrong
that the role of the committee, in relation to other housing groups,
be studied and defined by the CSL study group on student
The council also discussed the Fees and Fines report but
postponed final approval until the two-section report could b:
re-written and combined. Ron Gierhan was appointed to write the
report in a consistent final form.
NETV director calls
live hearing success
In an effort to involve citizens throughout the state with the
proceedings of the state Legislature, the Nebraska Educational
Television Network (NETV), Tuesday for the first time offered a
live telecast of a legislative hearing, according to Ron Hull, NETV
program director.
The hearings were on LB275 and LB417, bills directed at
Nebraska's correctional system.
Conducted Tuesday evening at the Lincoln studios of NETV,
the hearings drew testimony from twenty persons, half of the
estimated audience, during the three and one-half hour hearing,
Hull said.
During the hearing,, with the assistance of the League of Women
Voters, viewers' telephone calls were accepted, directing questions
and comments to the Judiciary Committee, which was hearing the
The televised hearing was a success, Hull said, and he hopes that
in the future, issues with state-wide interest can be presented this
way, encouraging a dialogue between the people and the
Hull said he thinks there is much hope for future legislative
telecasts, because the senators were enthusiastic about the idea.
In Kentucky, the ETV network was turned down when it
offered to give live coverage to legislative proceedings, he said.
The senators put themselves out on a limb when they present
their bills for public discussion, Hull said.
