Students resigned to drop-add difficulties administrator
Despite long lines and closed sections, very little
trouble has been reported with this year's general regis
tration and drop-add, according to university officials.
Anthony Schkade, assistant director of registration
and records, said students have had difficulties because
of the unusual amount of sections closed. Nearly 2,000
of the 5,000 courses offered were filled after pre-regis-
tration, he said.
Some of these courses include all freshman English,

engineering and accounting classes. Many physical edu
cation courses and introductory modern language courses
are also closed. Schkade said, adding that a number of
graduate courses have been closed, which is rare.
Sections have been added to some of these classes to
ease the load. Schkade said courses with a double enroll
ment have been split in half but many of the enlarged
sections are open early in the morning or late in the
afternoon with labs on Saturday.
In spite of the undesirable times, students are signing
up for courses when they can get them. According to
Bursar James Wickless, 2,038 went through drop- and
add late registration as of Tuesday noon.
Workers in administration said there have been few
incidents involving people trying to get through the drop
add line without paying the $5 fee, a common problem in
Arlene Salter, a worker, who is in charge of signing
student forms, said students have been "very congenial."
She could remember only one student who was upset.
"He had already gone through the process twice and
paid twice. He didn't want to pay a third time," she said.
Schkade said he saw the small number of complaints as
a change in the students' general attitude.

"The tone of students is a lot less emotional," he said.
"They are less excited about closed courses."
Schkade said some students wonder why they must pay
a $5 fee after classes begin when others go through the
process at no charge In the summer.
"The reason is that we are disseminating information
to more places," Schkade said. "In the summer the infor
mation goes directly to the computers so much less staff
Alumni House drip-proof
Hie UNL Alumni Association members were pleasant
ly surprised when workers began tearing the roof off the
Alumni House in early August.
"We didn't know we were getting a new roof until they
started tearing the old one off," said Jack Miller,
executive vice president of the Alumni Association.
He said the original roof was 40 years old and needed
to be replaced.
"It was time to get that done. If it hadn't been done
before this winter we would have had some serious leak
age." Miles Tommeraasen, vice chancellor for business and
finance, said the new roof cost about $6,000 and was
paid for out of state money, not university money.
