The AS UN Senate's petition drive to force the
Nebraska Union Board to give Gateway Bank 90 days
notice to vacate might be an exercise in frustration if
"cause" is not established, according to Nebraska Union
Director Allen Bennett.
Gateway's lease stipulates that "cause" must he given
by either party to terminate the lease, Bennett said.
"Withdrawing the lease may be a violation of the
agreement," he said, adding that legal advice will be
sought on whether the new activity charge consitutes
Bennett said that the decision to terminate the lease
should take at least a month making 120 days, including
the 90 day notice, as the minimum amount pf time
Gateway Bank could remain in the Union.

According to officials at six local banks, Citibank and
. Trust Company, West Gate Bank, Citizen's State Bank,
Havelock Bank, Lincoin Bank East and Lincoln Bank
South, the law does not prevent their opening at the
Union if Gateway vacates.
When the Union accepted bids for a branch operation,
Gateway was the only bidder. Bennett said that what he
called "unknown causes" that prevented the others from
bidding earlier may once again prevent many bids.

Longevity study finds Nebraska the good, long life
By Tern Willson
"Nebraska- the good life." Perhaps the slogan should
be "Nebraska- the long life."
Nebraska has higher life expectancy than the nation
as a whole. Furthermore, In the areas studied, people live
longer in Lancaster County and women live longer than
These findings, from the first ,study on longevity done
in Nebraska, were compiled by Norman Nelson, statistical
analyst for the Nebraska Health Dept.'s division of health
data and statistical research.
The study, financed by the state Vital Statistics ucpl.,
was to determine life expectancy differences between
Nebraska and the nation for the years 1969 to 1971, ac
cording to Mary Lou Eastman, division director.
Nelson used data already available to compile his three
month study, Eastman said.
50 to 60 more years
The average man, between the age3 of 20 to 25, living
In Lancaster County, can expect ot live 52.4 more years,
the study reported. A woman in these same conditions
can expect to live about 60 more years.
A UNL student has something over the average UNO
student because a 20 to 25 -year -old person living in
Douglas County has a life expectancy of another 53.7
years, and in Lancaster County a person of the same age
can expect to live 56.3 more years.
The average United States coUege-a;e male can expect
to live 493 more years, the average American college-age
woman 5639 more years.
A person 85-years and older in Douglas County can
hope to live another 6.1 years, compared to 6.4 years
in Lancaster County.
Women living longer
Upon retirement at age 65, Nebraskans average 16.06
more years, with males between the ages of 65 and 70
living an additional 13.8 years and females in that :ss
bracket living 18.1 more years.
The report also indicates that an American man born
today is expected to live 67.04 years and a woman is
expected yo live 74.64 years. The average Nebraska man's
life expectancy is 68.94 compared to a woman's is 76.8.
The study has breakdowns by sex in several geographic
areas. It looks at Lancaster and Douglas Counties
separately, Nebraska excluding those two counties and
Nebraska as a whole.
Nelson said insurance companies would use the study
to help compile life insurance policies.
Low death rate
Eastman said no one has determined why Nebraskans
live longer, but added that national studies indicate
Nebraska has the lowest death rate.
One reason women live longer is because the accident
death rate for young American men is higher, Eastman
Nelson said that Douglas County, with the lowest
Nebraskan life expectancy in the four areas studied, still
is higher than the national expectancy.
He attributed the study's findings to the "healthy,
rural" atmosphere of the state.
The table below is a comparison of the life expectancy columns from life tables for the male and female
populations of the United States, Nebraska, and Lancaster and Douglas counties. By looking at an age group in
the first column, a person can determine how many more years he is expected to live for each area.
