Student fees are a self-imposed universi

chose not to support with tax money. This
explanation of student fees, given at the
Council on Student Life (CSL) meeting
Thursday, was a CSL committee response
to a complaint concerning the equity of
Dennis..Snyder, CSL member, said since
student fees must be payed, he thought
they couldn't be broken down another way
without shifting financial responsibility on
to another group unfairly.
Snyder added he believed services such
as the Health Center should be payed for
The inequity appears when a student
taking seven hours or more pays full
student fees but is not allowed to purchase
a football ticket because he is not a full

Omaha-For $20 million they could
have gotten a lot more, with a lot less
That was a comment by one of approxi
mately 20,000 people who, by 3 p.m.
Wednesday, had traveled through the
American Freedom Train in Omaha.
The Freedom Train, which began its
journey in April, 1975 from iwoomington,
Del., cost $15.5 million to complete,
according to Marty Cumming, secretary to
the senior vice president of operations for
the Freedom Train.
The total budget is $20 million, includ
ing cost of buying the 24-car train, salaries
for 150 staff members and fuel, Cumming
The train has approximately 500 exhib
its, including Clark Gable's original script
for the movie, "Gone With the Wind,"
Abraham Lincoln's rocking chair from the
Ford Theatre, Bing Crosby's gold record
for White Giristmas, Shirley Temple's
stuffed teddy bear, George Washington's
copy of the Constitution and Amelia Ear
hart's flight goggles and scarf.
All items on the train are on loan and
will be returned after completion of its trip
in December, 1976, Cumming said.
Displayed in 10 exhibit cars, the items
take approximately 20 minutes to see. A
conveyer belt carries spectators through
Most common complaints by people
after going through the train are the speed
.at which they are taken through and the
long wait in line.
Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for
children under 12 and adults over 65.
The American Freedom Train Founda
tion, a nonprofit organization, is in charge
of the project. According to Cumming, five
companies, the Pepsi-Cola Co., General
Motors Corp., Kraft Foods, Prudential
Insurance Co. of America and a company
which wanted to remain anonymous,
donated $1 million each for the train.
The remaining $15 million, according to
Cumming, is to be collected through ticket
prices, souvenirs and a percentage of con

Any profit made by the train will be
donated to a charity to be determined by
the Freedom Train Foundation, Cumming
said. If the train loses money, she said, the
Foundation will absorb the losses.
The train will be in Omaha through
Sunday, September 28. It is open from
8 ajti. to 10 p.m. weekdays and Sunday
and from 8 a.m. to midnight on Friday and
