According to Marvin Twiehaus, chair
man of UNL's Veterinary Science Depart
ment, this task force of governor appoint
ees from the five states have completed
phase one of their study which determined
the need for a regional veterinary school.
Phase two will determine in which of the
five states the school will be located and
how it will be financed, he said.
The following determinants will help
the task force decide the site for the
school, Twiehaus said.
-Source of clinical material available at
each of the five schools.
-Existing buildings and libraries at each
-What .a regional veterinary school
would be worth to each state.
According to UNL's Dean of Agricul
xture TJE. Hartung, Cole has visited the five
state schools comparing sites to find the
best equipped and most logical place for a
veterinary school. Hartung said he has been
working with Cole gathering UNL Veter
inary Science Department data, and added
that Cole ha3 been interviewing veterinary
science staff members,
Hartung said he hopes the commission
will look "very strongly" at Lincoln as a
Demand for tutors rises
By Sandy Mohr
The Minority Affairs Office needs tutors,
and the situation will probably worsen
before it improves, according to Jirnmi
Smith, director of Minority Affairs.
The office currently needs seven tutors:
two in human development, two in geogra
phy, one in upper level accounting, one in
criminal justice and one in physics, he said.
Smith said he expects an increase in de
mand when down slips are mailed next
week, causing what he thinks may be a
rush of people wanting tutors.
The Minority Affairs Office sends out
. letters to every minority student receiving
a down slip. The letter requests that the
student come into the office to obtain help.
Some of the black student organizations
established a minimum 2.0 grade point
average (CPA) for those in the organiza
tion, and their officers are asking for tutors
for some of their members, according to
Because of the lack of response to
present tutorial needs, Smith said he
doubts whehter he will get the number of
people needed to meet the expected rush.
"Every . year it's misery after downs
come out. We never, ever get enough
people to fill our needs," he said. .
In order to obtain tutors, Nina Hansen,
secretary of Special Services in the Depart
ment of Minority Affairs, contacts. the aca
demic departments in areas where tutors
are needed. . ."
If this fails, they say they will contact
their graduate assistants and, as a final try,
they may announce the position to their
400-level courses. -
Hansen said she tried solidly for two
weeks to fill the seven open tutoring
positions, but has received no response.
Although there may be a large request
for tutors, Smith said that they try to
maintain a one to three ratio of tutors to
students. They do not wish to infringe on
the tutor, Smith said.
The tutors, who are paid $2.50 an hour,
may spend from two hours to more than
ten hours a week with a student.

The Old West Regional Commission, in
a meeting last Friday at Rapid City, S.
Dak., reached no decisions about a future
site because the meeting centered around
discussion of Colorado State's veterinary
school, Twiehaus said.
White said Nebraska pays the bulk of
the tuition costs for out-of-state students,
and receives direct benefits only if students
return to Nebraska to practice veterinary
medicine. He said a study done by UNL's
veterinary science department last year
stated that the return rate of out-of-state
students who receive their doctorate after
completing pre-veterinary training at UNL
is not meeting the state's demands for

Marvin Twiehaus, chairman of UNL's
- Veterinary Science Dept., is retiring from

Twiehaus will remain on the Veterinary
Science Dept. staff until June 30, 1976, he
said. He then will retire at age 65, efter 12

veterinary activity. ;

the planning committee will report to the

meeting to give a commission report and

Construction of the diagnostic lab for
livestock on East Campus is nearing com
pletion and work has begun on two other
veterinary science buildings.
According to College of Agriculture
Dean TJE. Hartung, the animal health re
search and diagnostic complex should be
completed in 18 to 24 months, and the
diagnostic lab by Jan. 1, 1976.
The animallivestock holding facility
and the basic science research buildings are
being built adjacent to the diagnostic lab
and will be northwest of the Law College
The state-funded project will give us "a
very excellent facility for Nebraska and
one which will provide services equal to
those of veterinary schools in surrounding
states," Hartung said.
He said the present diagnostic staff
members are moving into the new lab. Al
though staffing is not at full capacity, the
Veterinary Science Dept. is seeking full
staff appropriation on the 1976-77 budget. .
Approved by the NU Board of Regents, the
proposal is being considered by Governor
J. James Exon and the Legislature.
Hartung said the diagnostic lab should"
bs at full capacity by next July.
