Few Viet vets
A performance audit of Nebraska's Vietnam Veterans'
Education Loan Act of 1973 shows that only one-tenth of
one per cent of eligible Vietnam veterans requested loans
during the first fiscal year of operation, 1974-75.
It also showed 77 cents in administrative costs were in
curred for every dollar loaned.
The first year's appropriation was $150,000 and $82,000
was budgeted for fiscal 1975-76, plus $19,000 in admin
The audit also showed that since August, ten loans have
been made totaling $1,150 at an administrative cost of
State Veterans Affairs Director Robert Brandt told the
Legislature's Government, Military and Veterans' Affairs
Committee at a hearing last week that the small number of
loans made administrative costs disproportionately high.
Many veterans use federal Veterans Administration loans
for education and may not be aware of the state loan pro
gram, he said.
Robert Manifold, member of the State Veterans
Advisory Commission, told the committee that the
Veterans Administration has 191 education loans compared
to the state's 105, but the VA has a "huge" staff and infor
mation officers on all college campuses.
He said there has been difficulty making veterans aware
of the state program's availability.
Chuck Patteson, systems analyst in the state auditor's
office, said the performance audit was the first done on a
specific legislative bill and as a result, administration of the
program has improved.
Gay Action Group
Lincoln's gay community is interested in more than their
own liberation, according to Dave, a member of the Univer
sity of Nebraska-Lincoln's Gay Action Group.
"The structure of the Gay Action Group allows for
involvement as interest in new issues, projects or concerns
come into focus," Dave said, "but the continuing involve
ment mat's found in New York or Los Angeles isn't found
Dcvre said the Lincoln Gay Action Group and the UN-L
Gay Action Group are basically the same organization. Gay
action group activities include Sunday night coffeehouses
at Commonplace, 333 N. 14 St., gay rap groups at
Commonplace and the Gay Rap Line. The rap line is an all
night telephone line, is one of the major functions of the
group and is funded yearly with $500 from the University
for its operation.
Profits from next Sunday's Anniversary Coffeehouse will
go to the defense fund of Sgt. Leonard Matlovitch, who was
discharged from the military because he is a homosexual,
said Dave. Dave said the group is supporting Matlovitch and
has run articles in local newspapers, received affidavits from
gay service people and is donating profits to his cause.
The Gay Action Group also operates a resource center in
Commonplace. It was started with a $100 donation from a
member of the gay community when the group could not
get money from the fees allocations board, Dave said. It
is now funded by a $50 a month donation from Gay
Action Group, he said. He said it is the only resource
center of its kind in Nebraska and has books, pamphlets
and newspapers that can be checked out to anyone.
