Regents' bonds hold Pershing's fate
By Marian Lucas
Defunct Pershing College may never be
come a campus for Southeast Technical
Community College (SCC).
if a resolution is passed by the NU
Board of Regents at its meeting today,
the University of Nebraska Foundation will
have to "take action as it deems appropri
ate in order to liquidate its interest in the
Pershing College property to its best
The property in Beatrice was given to
the foundation last December by the Be
atrice Chamber of Commerce on behalf of
Beatrice banker William Cook, a Pershing
trustee, three years after Pershing College
had been closed. Its value has ranged from
$2 million to $3.1 million.
Approval of the regents' resolution
would dim SCC's hopes to obtain the
former Pershing campus, since an SCC
board has agreed to pay a maximum
$35,800. This would reimburse the NU
foundation for maintenance of Pershing,
security and insurance costs since Decem
ber, the board said.
However, the university could not deed
Pershing to SCC without consent of the
Legislature, according to state law.
The governor and Legislature must
approve any gift or bequest of personal
property worth more than $10,000 to the
NU President DJJ. Varner said the reso
lution was submitted by an executive com
mittee of the NU Foundation.
At the meeting today he will recom
mend the regents not adopt the resolution,
he said. Instead, he said, he is suggesting
the board send him to the Legislature, "to
secure the Pershing property for the ex
plicit use of giving it to" SCC.
According to Harry Haynie, foundation
president, the foundation will ask the re
gents if the university has any use for the
Pershing campus. If not, he said, the foun
dation will sell the property to the highest
The foundation now, can sell property
for market value, but it can only give prop
erty to NU. The regents, however, can give
or sell property to outside interests.
The regent's resolution further states
that the foundation cannot "legally give
(Pershing) to any charitable or educational
organizations" exceot NU. It also says that
the foundation "now desires to sell" Per
shing if the university cannot use it
The foundation should liquidate its
interest in Pershing, the resolution says, be
cause "there is substantial cost and expense
in maintaining (it) as an idle facility."
SCC has campuses in Lincoln, Fairbury
and MSford, but has considered closing its
Fairbury campus to move to Pershing
College. However, SCC officials have said
they could not afford $2 million for the
property and conceivably will not partici
pate in bidding for the defunct campus.
According to Haynie, other parties have

The NU Board of Regents considers ap
pointment of a new chairman of the Ge
ography Dept. at today's meeting. Pending
regent approval, Brian Blouet would succeed
Richard Lonsdale, chairman since 1971.
Blouet's chairmanship would become ef
fective at the start of the 1976-77 academ
ic year. Blouet said Lonsdale asked to step
down as chairman to work on research
topics for which administrative duties did
not allow time. Lonsdale is working on
projects concerning attraction of industry
to small towns, Blouet said.
Blouet first came to UNL in 1956 as a
guest professor on leave from the Univers
ity of Sheffield, in Sheffield, England,
where he had taught for six years. He re
turned to Sheffield for two more years of
teaching and then came to UNL as a
permanent faculty member in 1969. He re
ceived undergraduate and doctorate de
grees from the University of Hull in Hull,
In the spring of 1973, Blouet, along with
UNL geography Associate Professor Merlin
Lawson, led an "Images of the Plains" con
ference. A book of the same name based
on the symposium's papers, recently has
Blouet said he thought there would be
no problem in changing department heads
because members have "a working arrange
ment on how the department should run."
He said if the regents approve the ap
pointment, he hopes to continue teaching
and publishing as well as fulfilling chair
Blouet said he disagrees with implied
criticisms of the quality of UNL faculty.
He said he has been a guest scholar at the
Oxford University School of Geography in
Oxford, England, and has taught summer
school at the University of British Colum
bia and said UNL's geography faculty "is,
on the average, every bit as good as the
faculty at those prestigious departments."
Campus Red Cross cited
The UNL chapter of the American Red
Cross has received the "Eight Signs of
Life" award for outstanding blood
collection on campus last year.
. Pat Neszger, Lincoln Red Cross youth
services coordinator, said a trophy was pre
sented to the group by the Omaha Blood
Region, which includes 88 Nebraska and
Iowa counties, at the annual meeting this
month. University Red Cross competed
with other college and university Red Cross
groups in the region, she said.
"The award is presented to the chapter
most successful in achieving their goal, and
having a high percentage of first-time
donors," Neszger said. "Eight Signs of
Life" represented the eight blood types,
Neszger said last year's UNL bioodmo
biles, held in December and April, collect
ed 592 pints of blood.
The first bloodmobilc this year is sched
uled for Dec. 8 and 9 in Abel North
Lounge, according to Bob Sundberg, Uni
versity Red Cross president
"Our goal for this bloodmobilc is
the maximum of donors we can facilitate,
which is 240," Sundberg said. "I think
people are expecting a lot of us since we
won the award," he said.
Sundberg said bloodmobile hours will
be lOajn. to 4 pjn.
