FAB asks CAC
bakery inquiry
By Marian Lucas .
Investigation into a proposed Campus Assistance Center
(CAC) and a union bakery was unanimously moved Wednes
day night by the Fees Allocation Board.
A report by the board's Nebraska Union Operations sub
committee stated that the union's 1975-76 capital budget
didn't include the two proposed items.
Also, the subcommittee reported that student fees
would have to be raised if funds from student organizations
were not cut to finance operation of the new East Union.
Further inquiry into the status of the University Book
store was suggested because the subcommittee termed its
operations "questionable." Cited as vague items were
the bookstore's profits and its arrangements at the
Nebraska Union.
As a result of a Recreation Department and Recreation
Facilities subcommittee report, board member Jim Lewis
said that even though the women pay' the same amount of
student fees as men, they do not receive the same recrea
tional opportunities.
The issue, lewis said, s whether the Recreation Dept.
is sincere in its efforts to give to women the opportunities
for the money they pay.
Members of the subcommittee said that while sutdent
fees were increased, such things as entry for intramural
sports were decreased.
In other business, Jim Sherrets, was denied $500 for
transportation to a Transatlantic Debate Assoc. tourna
ment for the Student Bar Assoc. The request was denied,
According to FAB chairman Don Wesely, the board's
criteria doesn't provide for transportation to student
Slow but steady progress is being made
in the petition drive for a grand jury invest
igation into the shooting deaths of two
uncoln black men, according to Cynthia
(..randberry, secretary to Omaha State
Sen. Ernest Chambers.
About 2,000 signatures have been
collected to date at the rate of about 500
a week, she said. Although 2,414 signa
tures are required, an attempt is being
made to get 3,000, Sheila Finney who is
heading the petition drive, said last month.
Lincoln Action Program (LAP) director
Jesse Payne said recently that he "under
stood Judge Van Pelt's position" in his
decision to refrain from calling a grand
jury investigation. Payne said he is helping
... vuuuii uiivc as mucn as possiDie DOtn
personally and through LAP.
"As a social service agency, we serve as
a distribution point of information for
anyone interested in the petition drive,"
Payne said. Petitions are available at the
LAP center for people who want to help
circulate them.
Payne said that although he supports
a "thorough" grand jury investigation
into the deaths of Elijah Childers, shot by
a Lincoln police officer, and Arvid Sherdell
Lewis, shot by Lancaster County Deputy
Sheriff Rod Loos, he realizes that LAP
"has a limited extent of resources" with
which to help further the petition drive
LAP has been assisting in fund raising
events to help pay Lewis's legal and funeral
City officials and others connected with
the issue should "remain objective and not
fall prey to tactics designed to mold their
actions in one way or another," Payne said.
A school classmate and personal friend
of Lewis, Payne said he thought any in
formation connected with the case should
be public record.
County Commissioner Bruce Hamilton,
said he has "not had any official access to
any more information than what is also
available to you (the public)." In a recent
sermon at the Unitarian Church of Lincoln,
Hamilton supported the efforts for a grand
jury investigation.
