Grand jury petition-signers reach 1,500
About 1,500 people have signed
petitions calling for a grand jury to investi
gate the shooting of two black Lincoln
men by police, according to Cynthia
Cranberry, secretary to Omaha State Sen.
The petitions have been circulated in
Lancaster County since mid-October.
Cranberry said 4,828 signatures, about
10 per cent of registered Lancaster County
voters, are needed to call a grand jury
without court approval.
Relatively few problems were
encountered in getting persons to sign the
petitions, Cranberry said. Some people
refuse to sign because they are afraid their
neighbors or employers will find out, she
said, or think that they don't know enough
about the petitions. She said others are just
"against the whole thing."
Although the petition requests the
investigation into the shooting deaths of
Elijah Child ers and Arvid Sherdell Lewis,
Cranberry said that once a grand jury is
called, there is no limit to what can be

Earlier this month the CityCounty
Common voted to recommend that District
Court Judge Samuel Van Pelt call a grand
jury. According to his office, he has not
yet given a statement as to whether or not
he will call one.
Van Pelt currently is presiding in a
jury term, the selection of jurors, sche
duled to end Nov. 6. His office said he
would be "booked up" through December.
She added that what she called his busy
schedule would not affect the time of Van
United Airlines, said the survey will help
determine the local travel market. National
travel surveys reflect metropolitan areas
such as Chicago rather than the agricultural
business market found in Nebraska, he said.
Radican said someone suggested last
March at a travel agent's seminar in Chica
go that the university undertake the
project. "It a the first survey United Air
lines has ever done on this basis," he said.
Travel agents benefit
Results will be more useful to Lincoln
travel agents than to United Airlines,
but United is sponsoring the program be
cause travel agencies are its best customers,
Four of the five travel agency project
directors said they are sponsoring the sur
vey to help them formulate advertising
effective in Nebraska. The fifth agent was
unavailable for comment.
Alton H. Peters, president of Via Van
Bloom Tour and Travel Service Inc., said
he' wants to know how many Nebraskans
travel and if they use an agency, who the
potential travelers are and how advertis
ing affects the rural Nebraskan.
