parKing on game qaysiQ en
By George MI3er
Comhusker football fans who prefer
parking in any available space on game
days, can expect to have their car towed
away this season, John Duve, university
parking coordinator, announced.
Duve said that any vehicle blocking traf
fic or parked on lawns, sidewalks or curbs
will be towed.
Towed cars will be taken to the uni
versity holding lot, 1 100 N. 17th St. A tpw
ing fee ranging from $10-515 must be paid,
by owners in order to retrieve their car.
In addition, Lincoln Police also will tow
cars to the 17th St. lot, according to In
spector Dean Leitner of the Lincoln Police
Uniform Division, which is in charge of
' Property damage
Leitner also said that persons renting
parking spaces on grassy areas between
streets and. sidewalks will be arrested. He
said that thousands ' of dollars in property
damage is dorva by cars parked on these
areas which is Lincoln city property.
Fraternities along 16th St. are the worst
offenders, Leitner said. He warned that vio
lators will be ticketed or even taken to
There is no reason for taxpayers to
have to pay for property damage for this
kind of parking, Leitner said. "We can
move trxiilc t lot faster, more safely and
with less accidents if people would parkin
Duve said the university traffic regula
tions have always included the towing pro
vision, but because of the number of cars
around campus on game days, a tendency
not to enforce the rule prevailed.
However, many unoccupied spaces in
lots on campus and the State Fairgrounds
easily could accomodate the illegally
parked cars, Duve said.
6,000 spaces at Fairgrounds
. 'Tve never seen the fairgrounds half full
during games," Duve said.' "There are
about 6,000 spaces out there."
Duve said he counted 250 cars parked il
legally during last season's Oklahoma State
game which could easily have been parked
in campus lots, he said.
In the past, Campus Police were used for
duties such as preventing gate crashing and
providing emergency service. Now, with
gate crashing instances decreasing, more
personnel can be used to guard against
parking violations. All campus security
personnel will concentrate on citing illegal
ly parked cars on game days, Duve said.
The decision to enforce the parking reg
ulations was made last year, he said. No
tices of the parking crack-down were sent
to each ticket-holder and flyers suggesting
legal parking places were placed on illegally
There were three main reasons for the
crackdown, according to Duve. One, is
that illegally parked cars interfere with
emergency ambulance and fire services.
Cars plugged in
'"There are approximately 75,000
80,000 people in thY stadium on game
days,"; Duve said. "Emergency
personnel must often be dispatched to,
emergencies like heart attacks, personal
injuries and fires during the game. We can't
respond when there are cars plugged in
Another reason is property damage to
lawns, shrubs, steam tunnels and sidewalks.
Every year the Grounds Dept. must repair
damage caused by parked cars.
"It's too bad the Grounds Dept. cannot
generate their efforts to new areas instead "
of repairing old areas," Duve said.
The third reason was one of equity.
"A student on campus could not expect
to park during the week like some visitors
park on game day," he said. "The problem
has accumulated so that people expect to
be able to park on lawns. We feel that an
individual parking illegally should be treat
ed equally during the week as he is during
the weekend," he said.

Duve said all Area 2 lots are open during
weekends. He recommended parking at the
National Guard Armory or State Fair
grounds. The Athletic Dept. sponsors a bus
service from the fairgrounds and armory to

harmacy students to earn doctorate
Starting next fall, students in the Col
lege of Pharmacy will have a new home and
earn a new degree. .
, Students in pharmacy will receive a doc
tor of pharmacy degree instead of the
bachelor of science in pharmacy they now
Those who enter the college before next
fall still will receive the bachelor's degree,
i The college under the budget and ad
ministration processes of the University of
Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), will
move to a new building in Omaha that
should be completed by September, ac
cording to L. Kirk Benedict, associate dean
of the College of Pharmacy.
The degree change, which was approved
by the NU Board of Regents at its Satur
day meeting, comes three years after a fac
ulty ad hoc committee was formed to
study its possibility.
The degree is a professional degree, not
a research degree, Benedict said.
UNL is the third school to switch to this
program, he said. Fifteen other schools
offer supplemental post-graduate work to
their graduates. The majority of UNL's
pharmacy graduates have gone to the Uni
versity of Tennessee for their graduate
work, he said.
The program change will require a bud
get increase of $200,000 over the next
three years, he said.
No extra equipment
There is no great need for additional
equipment to develop the program, he said.
However, there is a need for faculty mem
bers who can serve as "role models."
Benedict said a pharmacist should be
someone who "does more than dispense
pills." The pharmacist should be a profes
sional who is able to confer with the
patient and the doctor in determining
individual medical needs, he said.
. The program should serve to fulfill two
goals, Benedict said. The first, he said, is
to give the pharmacy student professional
training. The second is to have the student
assume responsibility for patient care
instead of being just an observer.
