A five-state College of Veterinary Medi
cine (CVM) located in Lincoln came cither
to reality Tuesday when the federal co
chairman of the Old West Regional Com
mission (OWRC) submitted a draft report
proposing UNL's East Campus as the CVM
The OWRC meets today in Bismarck,
N D. to review the report by Clarence Cole,
co-chairman of the OWRC committee
studying the idea of a regional veterinary
Warren Wood, federal OWRC chairman,
briefed Nebraska Sen. Roman Ilruska and a
Nebraska congressional delegation in Wash
ington Tuesday on the report.
Nebraska Rep. Charles Thone, a delega
tion member, said Wednesday that Wood
proposed a 22,000 square-foot building,
estimated at a cost of $14 million, to be
built at UNL.
Thone stressed mat all figures and con
ditions are preliminary while the report
still is being reviewed by the five states and
the commission staff. The five states are
Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska and North
and South Dakota.
The report goes Dec. 29 to an advisory
committee of governor-appointed members
and veterinarians of the five states, accord
ing to Gene Ingold, a member of Wood's
The commission will meet again to dis
cuss the report at the National Governors
Conference Feb. 14, he said.
Thone said several plans for the financ
ing of the CVM have been made. One pro
posal, he said, is that construction costs
be paid partially by the OWRC and partial
ly by the federal government. He added
that legislation to enable the federal gov
ernment to contribute 80 per cent of the
financing is being considered.
Wood and the governors of the five
states will review the report's recommen
dations, Thone added, before commis
sion approval in February.
Cole's report proposes:
-The CVM would accommodate 612
students and 96 faculty members.
-Three financial plans for construction
-Use of Lincoln revenue bonds for capi
tal financing of the CVM.
-A timetable which outlines staff ap
pointment in April, 1976, and shows con
struction of the buildings completed in
The alternate financial plans are:
-Flan A, which is 40 per cent funded
by the OWRC and 60 per cent by the five
participating states according to the num
ber of student spaces allocated to each
-Plan B, which would have 50 per cent
financed by the commission and 50 per
cent by the states.
-Plan C, which sets 25 per cent funding
by the UJS. Department of Health, Educa
tion and Welfare, 25 per cent by the com
mission, and 50 per cent by the states.
According to Ingold, the Lincoln reve
nue bonds will be issued by the state on a
per year per student basis. Total capital
costs would be financed by the bonds, with
the four states reimbursing Lincoln on the
basis of fees per student.
The timetable specifies that in January.
1977, the program and facility plans of the
universities would be approved, and plans
would be reviewed by the American Vet
erinarian Medical Association's Council on
Construction would begin by July, 1978
with the first class held in September, 1979.

Nick Vos walks the picket line in front of the Stuart Theatre
because they lack the manpower, he said,
although about 25 to 30 Dispatch people
have been working full time.
Torn, scratched G!ra
The Dispatch leaflet states that 'Inter
ruption of viewing and torn and scratched
films have become frequent' as a result of
automatic projection equipment.
However, the Stuart theatre had used
automatic equipment before the new sys
tem was installed, according to assistant
manager Mike Murphy.
"Films break even when people are
running the projectors," he said, "and
movies that run for a long time naturally
show more wear and toar."
Despite the boycott, people still come to
the Stuart, Murphy said.
"People come into the theater with leaf
lets in their hand, he said, "and the
general comments are if I want to see a
movie, 111 go see it."
According to Lynn Rogers, manager and
projection operator at the Hollywood and
vine, the union negotiated a contract that
consolidated the duties of manager and
projectionist into one job that takes care of
the theater's entire projection operation.
Rogers said he also is a union member
and got his job "through the union instead
of the theaters."
Theater owners wanted to eliminate the
job of projectionist, he said.
A proposed maintenance contract In
cluded maintenance, makeup and teardown
of equipment, but not projection. Rogers
said work hours under such a contract
would be cut from 10 hours per day to five
hours per week.
