monday, february 16, 1976 page 3 daily neb raskan Erskine says $100 million neede By Sandy-Mohr Just to "keep the place open" NU needs $100 million in state genenil funds for the 1976-77 fiscal year, accord ing to William Erskine, vice-president foi administration. And if the university wants to compete with the top three universities in the Big 8 Conference, Erskine said the budget needs an additional "kicker" of $8 million. Without the $8 million, which NU President D.B. Varner proposed to the Nebraska Legislature's Appropria tions Committee Feb. 9, NU is at a "standstill," Erskbie said, because it has no money for improvements. Gov. J. James Exon has proposed that NU receive $84 million while the Legislature proposed $88 million in LB690. A year and a half ago, Exon appointed a commission to determine the amount of state general funds NU should receive to equal the average of the top three Big 8 schools.. Erskine was the only NU representative on the 1202 Com mission, chaired by Gus Licske, formerly head of the state Administrative Services Dept. and currently vice-president of an Omaha computer products company. Exon had expressed his concern when the commission was established that NU should be financed equal to the . average of me top three Big 8 schools. . : UNL would receive $8 mGion .

The $100 million is "just to get by without really im proving the university at all," Erskine said. T The largest share of the $7.8 million would go to the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources, he said. About $3.5 million would go toward its instruction, con servation, water resources," research and extension programs. . . ' ; v , . - . Erskine said the commission originally came up with a figure of $7.7 million for the institute, but that was "a little overstated" and later revised to $3.5 million. UNL would receive $2.7 million of that $8 million. This figure was not broken down for individual depart ments or schools, he said. More realistic, figure However, Erskine said, he did not agree completely with the. commission's figure and that a subsequent UNL administration committee studying comparable programs found that $5.6 million would be a more realistic figure for UNL to be in the top half of the Big 8. "The commission would never buy that," Erskine said. "But I think $2.7 million wont achieve equity." to derive an amount for UNO, Erskine said, the com mission estimated about half of the suggested appropria tion for UNL because UNO enrollment is about half that of UNL. The commission allowed $1.4 million for UNO. The commission found that the University of Nebraska Medical Center comes closest of the four NU programs to being in the top half of the Big 8, Erskine said. The medi cal center would need $200,000 of the $8 million, he said. fi lilt last tTiii 1 1 ill 'iaaat ii wrtiH wM . A Major Regional Ballet Company 'Saturday February '21 8 p.m. Kimball Hcttta!
