LB710, to be heard publicly before the Nebraska Legis
lature's Labor Committer Wednesday, would increase
Court of Industrial Relations judges' salaries from $75
per diem to $130.
The court, established by law in 1947 to handle labor
management arbitration, for several years, the court heard
few cases, according to Lincoln Sen. Roland Luedtke.
In 1969 its powers were expanded to include media
tion for state and local government employes, including
teacher's salaries and benefits.
The judges' salaries were the same as district court
judges' for years, Luedtke said, but recent attempts to
raise their salaries in line with district court judges failed.
Finding qualified judges has been difficult considering the
court's increasing workload, he said.

CSL, HPC propose visitation 'option'
By Liz Crumley
A proposal recommending that 24-hour visitation in
dormitories be allowed as a UNL housing option was
passed by the Council on Student Life (CSL) and Housing
Policy Committee (HPC) Tuesday night.
The recommendation, one of six acted upon by both
groups, was contained in a HPC task force report on
During CSL's discussion of the recommendation, ques
tions were raised about added security, increased crime,
and a lack of privacy.
A number of schools have been contacted concerning
their visitation policies and resulting problems, a housing
office representative said. Most have cited increased crime
and added security costs, he said.
CSL member Carolyn Grice said she was worried about
what she called an invasion of privacy the 24-hour visita
tion might cause.
New bills include
Among bills introduced Monday in the Nebrasla Legis
lature was LB828 by Sen. Richard Maresh of Milligan,
which would allow the Nebraska Educational Television
Commission to broadcast closed circuit transmission of
sold-out NU home football games. The broadcast would
be shown in the new fieldhouse.
The bill provides for an advisory panel of the NU
athletic director, the lieutenant governor and the director
of the NETV commission to decide which games would be
Utica Sen. Douglas Bereuter introduced LB846, which
would allow non-resident students to continue using out-of-state
driver's licenses while attending Nebraska colleges
and universities. Currently, non-resident students must
obtain a Nebraska driver's license within 30 days.
However she added that if CSL passed a recommenda
tion increasing visitation hours, it was going to be the resi
dents responsibility to try to make it work.
CSL members Al Bennett and George Wolf said they
voted for the proposal on principle.
"This is not an abstract. right (24-hour visitation),"
Wolf said. "The university ought to be offering students
the rights and responsibility of adults, as an option."
CSL member Steve Eggland agreed that if the option
did not work, "it would become crystal clear" to the stu
dents within one year.
HPC and CSL also passed four recommendations which
would retain current UNL housing policies and offer sup
port for the housing office.
Both groups passed a recommendation that "present
coed and single sex living arrangement options be
Floors, units and wings
These options include coeducational halls by alternat
ing floors, single sex residence units and coeducational
living in separate wings.
The groups also passed a recommendation stating the
four options now available concerning visitation be
These include no visitation hours, zero to eight hours
per day, zero to 14 hours per day and a 24-hour visitation
option open to graduate students.
CSL defeated a recommendation, offered to HPC by
Richard Armstrong, director of housing, which would give
dormitory residents the option of having 24-hour visita
tion in corridors and floor lounges.
HPC had passed the proposal earlier.
It would require a 75 per cent favorable vote by resi
dents before the option would be enacted.
CSL members voiced concern that students not
wanting any visitation hours and contact with the
opposite sex would be forced to by the majority.
CSL will take action on remaining HPC proposals at
their Thursday meeting.
The recommendations then go to the UNL chancellor
and then to the NU Board of Regents.
