By Gordon Johnson
A member of the UNL Affirmative Action Ciaison
Committee has said she feels three months probation was
not too harsh for Girlean Woods, a black woman who
charged UNL with discrimination in her firing from the
Alice Torwirt, Affirmative Action Liaison represent

probation be given. But she said she thinks three months
probation was not out of line since Woods was a team,
leader in her department.

The committee's findings, made public Thursday,
stated that they found no evidence of overt racial dis

Woods was fired Sept, 10 for "willful disobedience."
She was charged with over-extending her coffee break and
allowing unauthorized personnel to stay in Oldfather Hall

The committee found that the infractions she made
not warrant firing. The seven-member committee
recommended that Woods be retired.
However, Woods said Friday she would not take the
job if UNL required her to be on probation for three
A report by the committee to UNL Chancellor Roy
Young points out that other university employees were
guilty of the same infractions, but were not fired.
Woods contends that it is not fair that she should be
placed on probation while the others guilty of the same
thing are not.
Torwirt contends that in her opinion; Woods should
receive three months probation and that the other
workers should receive a strong reprimand.
Young, who refused to; release a copy of the
committee's report, said the decision to give Woods three
months probation .was one he made with other adminis
Meanwhile, the state ombudsman is , continuing his

said, and added that the investigation was going smoothly
and it will continue at 8:30 a jn. Tuesday.
Before results of the investigation can be made public,
McNeil said he is required by law to consult with the
university. He said he would probably work with Young
and NU general counsel Richard Wood.
