Students and faculty members may be paying more
for season football tickets next fall. Kow much more
depends on whether students are willing to pay an
additional $12.50 to make those tickets transferable.
Such a proposal will be put before 1he ASUN Senate
tonight, and the Council on Student Life (CSC)
Thursday, according to Ken Bader, .UNL vice
chancellor for student affairs.
"We want students to let us know which option tHey
prefer," Bcder said.
Students' and faculty members' ticket prices auto
matically will rise if a proposal to increase the'general
admission ticket price from $7.25 to $8.25 is passed
by NU Board of Regents at its Feb., 14 meeting.
Miles Tommeraasen, vice-chancellor for business and
finance, said if the proposal is passed students could
pay $17 for a six-game season ticket compared to the
same price for seven games last fall.
Faculty tickets, which were half the price of a general
admission , ticket (students pay one-third general
admission), would cost about $25.
At the reduced price, Tommeraasen said student.-'.
V faculty tickets would remain nontransferable, and a
student selling his ticket could have it confiscated.
Enforcement problems 1 , -Tommerassen
estimated transferable student tickets
would cost $29.50.
Problems enforcing the current ticket policy is one
reason why the $12.50 increase is being proposed,
" , Bader said. He said that the proposal was not made by
the Athletic Dept.
"We had a number of people concerned ' about
, whether the faculty were subject to the same enforce
ment as the students," Bader said. "We found equal
enforcement was almost impossible because there is
no good way to check the faculty." . ,
Faculty tickets are transferable to the immediate
family, so the user is not required to show identifica
tion. ' -
Tommeraasen said the Big 8 Conference changed its
ticket policy last month, requiring schools to charge
a minimum of $7 for a general admission ticket. The
visiting school would receive $3.50 on each general
admission ticket and 25 cents for each student-faculty
Tommeraasen said that in the past, the visiting school
collected half the price of each general admission
ticket. This season, the visiting school receives $3.50
no matter what the home school charges.
The quarter charge on student and faculty tickets
Applies until a school charges more than half the price
of a general admission ticket, then the, home school
must share any amount over that price.
Tommeraasen said last season, 17,200 season tickets
were sold to UNL students, 900 to University of Ne
braska Medical Center students, 6,500 to UNL faculty
members and 2300 full-price tickets to medical center
faculty. General admission tickets numbered 44,000.
The rest were given to press, concession, medical,
security and janitorial workers. Players, administrators
and public officials receive complimentary tickets.
Terms of new bill
allow ten more
By Dick Piersol
- Ten more Nebraska veterinary students may be able to
attend out-of-state veterinary schools under the terms of
LB798, heard publicly before the Nebraska Legislature's
Appropriations Committee Tuesday.
Beilwood Sen. Loran Schmit told the committee that
$165,000 appropriated by the bill would help support stu
dents at Cornell and Pennsylvania Universities this fall.
Both schools, Schmit said, have informed him they would
be able to accept five students. .
The bill would increase to 95 the number of Nebraska
veterinary students receiving state support at veterinary
medical schools in other states. Currently the state pays
$389,000 for support of students at the Universities of
Missouri, Minnesota, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Iowa
State and Colorado State. .
UNL College of Agriculture Dean T.E. Hartung told
the committee the students' share of the costs varies, but
most pay between $1,100 and $1,500 tuition and fees .
with the balance paid by the state.
Hartung said the state pays nothing for veterinary stu
dents enrolled at the Missouri University because of a re
ciprocal agreement whereby NU.accepts Missouri architec-
ture and dentistry students. . .
' Total costs for each student at Cornell and Pennsyl
vania Universities are somewhat higher than the other
schools, according to Hartung's figures.
At Cornell and Pennsylvania, costs per student are
about $15,000 a year. The other schools range from '
$6,000 annually at Colorado State to almost $12,000 at
Minnesota. " "
Schmit said there are 50 to 60 student applications foi
16 confirmed positions this fall at out-of-state schools.
He said nine to 12 more positions probably will be avail
able plus the ten at Cornell and Pennsylvania if the Legis
lature approves LB798.
If the Legislature does not approve the money for
Nebraska students at the two schools, Schmit said, there
is reason to doubt the sincerity of plans for a $14 million
regional veterinary medical school in Lincoln.

Committee will oppose faculty union
By Ron Ruggless
Tuition hkes and teacher siowdowns could affect UNL
students if a faculty collective bargaining agent is elected
for UNL Feb. 16, according to Everett Peterson, chairman
of the Committee of Concerned Faculty.
Peterson, a professor of agricultural economics, heads
the 15 -member steering committee formed to distribute
information on collective bargaining disadvantages. He
said students, as well as faculty members and the people
of Nebraska, would feel the effects of a UNL collective
"Strikes are illegal in Nebraska for state employes,"
Peterson said. "But teachers would be calling In sick and
there would be a slowdown which would severely affect
the quality of education for the students."
In addition, Peterson said there is a possibility of more
legal c'osts for tha university if it had to deal with a bar
The committee, was formed last Thursday by a faculty
member group organized to provide faculty members with
different view on collective bargaining than is being pre
sented by the UNL American Association of University
Professors (AAUP) chapter, Peterson said.
The committee sent a collective bargaining statement
and a letter to all potential voting UNI. faculty members
Tuesday, stating what he called the disadvantages and the
-reasons for votfeg "no" on the issue in the Fee. 16 elec
tion let up by the Nebraska Court cf Industrial Relations.
. The statement includes these) cooeeras: ,
-The "representative Faculty Senate, approved in
December 1974, deserves a trial period of performance to 1
develop a standard procedure of compromise end co
operation with the UNL administration and the NU Board
"Approval of AAUP as a faculty bargaining agent
would probably kill the representative Faculty Senate
and create an adversary situation," the letter states.
-Individual faculty members input in university plan
ning would be hindered.
If AAUP were voted the bargaining agent, Peterson
said, many faculty members would not have a say
. in policy decisions affecting them.
Peterson added that 200 of UNL's 1,400 faculty
members belong to AAUP, so a minority of faculty mem
bers would be making decisions. - r:.- ,

Faculty groups to meet
A committee of Faculty Senate and American Associa
tion o University Professors (AAUP) members will meet
Thursday to determine the roles of the two groups should
the AAUP be selected Feb. 16 as the UNL collective bar
'The AAUP could legally take over a lot of the Faculty
Senate activities,' said Ralph Marietta chairman of the
The group hopes to draft a latter of understanding out
lining each group's purposes if the AAUP is voted the
, bargaining agent, m said. '
