The Ford Foundation has awarded a
$100,000 grant to UNL to finance a joint
degree program in the graduate colleges of
Education Administration and Law.
Dale Hayes, professor of Education Ad
ministration, and John Gradwohl, profes
sor of Law are creators and directors of the ,
program.
Students participating will complete up
to five years of study, earning both a law
degree and a Fh J. in education adminisj-a-tion,
according to Hayes.
The Ford Foundation, which awards
grants to educational institutions for re
search, was founded by automaker Henry
Ford.
Hayes said the program, which will start
next fall, is designed for people already in
the education profession, such as school
superintendents and associate chancellors
of universities. He said a prerequisite of the
program is a master's degree in education
administration. -
Administrators with law degrees will be
qualified to handle legal problems without
hiring another lawyer, Hayes said. He said
programs such as ,the one at UNL will
reduce " the shortage of education law
teachers.
Hayes said the program evolved from a
course in education administration and law
taught by Gradwohl and himself. He said
they recognized the need for a joint degree
program with the growing enrollment of
the class.
".' Although, the University of California
Berkeley and Harvard University have Ford
Foundation grants for research in law and
education, UNL is the first to offer a
degree in both, Hayes said.

Gradwohl said the foundation reviewed
jfour different working budgets by he and
Hayes to determine how much money
would be awarded.
"We were hoping for a little larger
grant, Gradwohl said. He added that more
aid may be given after the program starts.
Gradwohl said that $85,000 of the grant
wOl be used for student aid and the remain
ing money for financing the program.
Students working on a joing degree will
spend their first year primarily studying
law courses, Gradwohl said, lie said six
hours will concentrate on courses simul
taneously teaching education, administra
tion and law..
Gradwohl said the law school will
accept nine hours of education administra
tion courses, on topics concerning school
policies and finances. He added that 12
hours of law courses will be recognized by
the college of education administration.
Gradwohl said that in addition to
courses already used, new courses now are
being developed.
These will deal with politics of educa
tion administration and legal issues in
public employment,' be explained.
"The joint degree program will create a
new specialty of law practice, Gradwohl
said. He said that options include repre
senting teachers associations and different
' organizations within universities.
"Law jobs are getting harder to find,
he said. "That increases the need for
specializing in a certain type of law."
Gradwohl said he thinks the develop
ment of what he called "interdisciplinary
courses" such as this are "of tremendous
value to the university."
He said it is a "realUvery inexpensive"
education," and adding faculty members to
1 teach the course will not be necessary.
This Is the third interdisciplinary program-
the Law College has developed, he
said. There is a master's program in Eco
nomics and Law, and a PhD. in Law
Psychology, he added. s
Gradwohl said there may be a project
between the colleges of business and law in
; the future. , "

siness up for Union food service
By Barbara Lutz
With 2,000 more students at UNL this
year, the Nebraska Union is receiving more
business. But lines are longer, prices higher
and paper cups smaller.
Bob Richeson, assistant director of food
service at the Union, sSd he had few
choices in his attempts to deal with
inflation and more mouths to feed.
Union food services are self-supporting,
and do not receive money from student
fees. The City Campus Union makes a
profit and must support the East Campus
u&Son, h said. Both unions are non-profit
institutiott?. '
No mere staff
It is impossible to add more staff to
accommodate the crowds, Richeson said,
because tine Union is "budgeted for
x-auisiber (of staff) for the year." The
budget is determined by the amount of
business done each year in relation to food
costs.
Richeson said the only change would be
an increase in part-time student help.
"The change In food costs is phenomen
al " Richeson said.
Meat (especially pork, bacon and
sausage), sugar, m2k and Ice are more
expensive, he said.
Cheese sandwiches now cost 30 per cent
more than a hamburger.
One of the roost noticeable change has
been in tha size of drinks. A "huge jump"
to paper prices in addition to prices of
sugar, coke syrup, ice and labor caused the
reduction, Richeson said. ;
'. Sizes shaved "v '
Cup sizes were shaved from l4-z. to 12
oz., and still sell for 20 cents. A larger ste
will be offered sometime, he said.
Richeson said he "felt it was unfair to
raise the price to 25 cents" because the
inciease would essentially be used to pay
for the paper cup, not the drink.
Richeson sets prices for the City and
East Campus Unions.
"We strive to have the lowest prices we
can," he said.
Other costs
The cost of meat is not the only factor
that determines the cost of hamburgers,
however.
In setting food costs, Richeson said he
considers labor, laundry, dry cleaning,
crater, lights, gas, cleaning, insurance and
telephone bills, postal fees, permits, licen
ses and freight.
Another major expense s what Riche
son called the "outfitting of students'
apartments with Union china and silver
ware." He said "replacement (costs) ol
silver and china far outweigh breakage
(costs)."
The only physical changes k the Union
food service will be remodeling of the
Colonial Dining Room. The dining room
will close Nov. 21 and reopen Dec, 8,
offerirsg a new soup and salad bar.
