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.

UNL blood drive nets 381 pints
University Red Cross (URC) collected 381 pints of
blood in a two-day UNL campus drive Dec. 8 and 9,
according to Pat Nefsger, Red Cross Youth Service Pro
gram director.
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.

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
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
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.
