thursdayjanusry 15, 1375 page 2 daily nebraskan LHI hoj State sciences academy topic ot hearing A bill to establish the Nebraska Academy of Sciences as a state administrative department will be heard publicly by the Nebraska Legislature's Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee Friday. Hastings Sen. Richard Marvel, the bill's sponsor, said the measure is a vehicle to help publish scientific papers by Nebraska scholars. The academy has existed since 1891, when it was founded by a group of university professors, including Roscoe found and Charles E. Bessey, according to C.B. . Schultz, academy executive secretary. It has been financed by private donations, an endow ment and an experimental farm it owns in Otoe County, he said. Nebraska has done what Schultz called a poor job of getting scientific treatises published, and he said the bill may help. Representatives of the governor's office' and academy members will testify at the hearing, Schultz said. If enacted, the bill would allow the governor to appoint members of the academy with the consent ol the Legislature.

She said URC collected the blood for the Omaha Regional Red Cross Blood Center. The center collects about 1 ,500 pints of blood weekly and provides all of the blood for hospitals in more than half of Nebraska and part of Iowa. She credited the drive's success to four students who planned and organized the drive. They are URC officers Bob Sundberg, a senior from Littleton, Colo.; Ann Hanson, an Arapahoe junior; Avery UNL student found in Oetober scuffle Regina Edington was found guilty Wednesday on one misdemeanor charge of assault against fellow UNL stu dent Jeffery Quackenbush, but was declared innocent of a second misdemeanor charge of assault against Campus Police Officer Ronald Lundy. ' County Judge Jeffre Cheuvront issued the verdict Wednesday afternoon after t morning of testimony. He set sentencing for Jan. 26. Cheuvront also revoked Eding ton 's probation from an earlier assault and battery charge. The charges stemmed from an Oct. 15 scuffle near the north entrance of the Nebraska Union. The incident allegedly started when Edington and Quackenbush entered the Union through the north revolving doors. Edington complained that her foot became stuck in the door as Quackenbush and a friend tried to enter through the same door. daily nebraskan Editor-in-chief: Vine Boucher, News Editor: Lori Demo, Managing Editor: Randy Gordon, Associate News Editors: Glna Hills and Rex Seline, Layout Editor: Michel Schmal, Night News Editor: Randy Blauvelt, Arts and Entertainment Editor: Diane Wanek, Sports Editors: Dennis Onnen and Pete Wegman, Third Dimension Editor: Theresa Forsman, Photo Chief: Ted Kirk.

Angel Flight and Arnold Air Society members worked at the blood collection center, located at the Abel-Sandoz Residence Hall Complex, she said. Although the URC did not reach its goal of 400 pints, Nefzger said Red Cross members appreciate those who donated. The blood drive scheduled for April 1 probably will be more successful, she added. "More people would have donated if we hadn't had the drive during dead week," she said. URC will try to schedule next semester's blood drive earlier, Nefzger said. guilty of assault incident in Union Edington testified that Quackenbush appeared amused at the incident at the revolving door. She said she asked him what was so funny and asked "in a calm voice" if he had tried to hurt her. Quackenbush was upset, red and swollen in the face and nervous according to Lundy, who arrived at the scene several minutes after five scuffle. Lundy said he approached Edington from the front, touched her on the arm and asked her to stay for questioning. Edington then "struck me on the left jaw" with her right fist, and was about to strike him again, so he pulled her to the floor to handcuff her, Lundy said. However, witnesses for the defense testified that Lundy "grabbed" or "tackled" Edington without any verbal exchange. Edington did not throw any punches, the defense witnesses said.

Senators accepi 10 ISO sculptures The Nebraska Legislature Wednesday passed by a vote of 25-14 an amended version of Grand Island Sen. Ralph Kelly's resolution to accept the Interstate-80 Sculptures Corporation's gift of ten sculptures. The resolution was amended to include Gov. J. James Exon as co-acceptor of the sculptures, and to strike a pro vision recommending that the Nebraska Arts Council pro vide sculpture projects more closely reflecting the state's heritage. The acceptance was in response to recent comments by . Exon and Department of Roads Director Thomas Doyle that they would accept the sculptures if the Legislature had taken no action by Feb. 1. Senators opposing the resolution argued that ac ceptance by the Legislature was not necessary because the executive branch has power to accept personal property gifts, like the sculptures, for the state. Those supporting the resolution said before anyone accepted the sculptures for the state, the Legislature's intent should be known.
