Free season ticket policy
is same for 75 season
No changes will be made in the policy of distributing
complimentary tickets for UN-L football games this fall, the Board
of Regents decided Saturday.
But the Regents directed university attorneys to report in
September on the legal question of complimentary tickets being a
form of compensation.
Members of the Board of Regents are unsalaried.
Regent Kermit Hansen, who suggested the move to answer the
compensation question, said that if need be, Regents should "put
their checks down on the table" at the September meeting.
Regent Robert Prokop of Wilbur, chairman of the ticket
committee, said a vast amount of material had been received by the
committee and final recommendations for the 1976-77 academic
year are about four mqnths away.
During the 1974 school year, the University issued 2,042 season
tickets to home games in Memorial Stadium. The stadium seats
about 76,000.
Each regent was eligible to receive two season tickets in the
press box and 10 season tickets in the stadium. Last fall 106 tickets
were distributed to regents and former regents.
Prokop recommended in his report that the three student
regents be given the same number of ticekts as the other regents,
but in the student section. .
He also approved that the Medical Cerjter be given 2,800 tickets
for its faculty and staff this fall, rather than the 3,7d0 requested.
Those are not complimentary tickets.

Regents asked for increase
No new programs are
planned at the University of
Nebraska in 1976-77, but NU
will need 20 per cent more in
state tax money anyway,
President D.B. Varner told the
regents Saturday.
The increase will push NlPs

share of the state budget from
this year's $74 million to about
$90 million.
Varner's proposals were part
of a six-page report on NU
guidelines that was approved
by the regents Saturday.
He said that libraries and
laboratories and faculty salaries
need upgrading, and that a
strong case could be made for
an even greater raise from the
state.
Ceiling necessary
But he said "the constraints
of reality" make, a 20 per cent
ceiling necessary.
Regent Robert Simmons of
Scottsbluff questioned the
wisdom of not adding new
programs.
Some new programs might
be better than old ones he
said.
Varner said Simmons'
criticism was fair and that the
Univsrsity always is reviewing
and weeding out existing
programs.
A major part of the increase
woiid go to faculty salary
raises, Varner said. NU needs
to be brought into line with
other Big 8 schools, the regents
were told.
The board also decided at
the meeting in Regents Hall
that a court test should be
made to determine its rights
and responsibilities.
The regents will ask for a
judgment on their relationship
with the Legislature and other
state agencies.
In an expected move, the
board gave its approval to the
appointment of Adam
Breckenridge as the Lincoln
campus' vice chancellor of
academic affairs.
Replaces Trotter
Breckenridge, who has been
acting vice chancellor for a
year, replaces Virginia Trotter,
who was appointed assistant
U.S. education secretary.
Other appointments
approved include:
Carl Leopold, dean of the
Graduate College and assistant
vice president for research.
Leo Lucas, dean and
director of the Cooperative
Extension Service,
John Woodward, associate
Mean of the College of Home
Economics and assistant
director of the UN-L
Agricultural Experiment
Station.
Robert Emile, professor of
strings and theory at UN-L.
Thomas Bowen, UN-L
Health Center administrator.
William Caldwell, assistant
director of Cooperative
Extension for 4-H and Youth
Development at UN-L.
