The Parking Advisory Committee approved a
resolution establishing a special study on the park
ing needs for the proposed Leid Center at yester
In the, 3-block area around Temple, the commit
tee anticipates the loss of 83 stalls with an increased
demand for 450-625 more parking spaces.
The newly proposed Leid Center, to be built next
to Temple, is a $20 million project with no real con
sideration for parking, secretary Ray Coffey said.
There are two guidelines used to determine the
number of parking stalls, he said. First, there's one
parking space per 50 square feet of seating area,
Coffey said. The Leid Center will have 2,000 square
feet, so there should be 400 parking stalls. Secondly,
there is one parking space every four seats, he said.
The seating capacity will be 2,500, so there would be
625 spaces this way.
In parking area 15, around Temple, 83 out of 610
UNL parking spaces will be lost, Coffey said.
In conjunction with City Transportation, the
Parking Advisory Committee is working on future
land use and street patterns. The area east of the
city campus, between 19th and 20th streets and
Vine and S streets, is being proposed for a trade with
the city. Coffey said under the new Corps of Engi
neers and bureau of standards guidelines this area
is a floodway where no permanent structure can be
constructed. These 1 1 acres fit into the university's
long-range plans for the campus, he said.
This area would provide some reasonably close
by parking-recreation areas in reasonable proxim
ity to the residence halls," Coffey said.
The university now owns the land just north of the
Harper-Schramm-Smith complex, Coffey said. The
area 3 parking can be expanded to the north so
students won't have to park across the train tracks
to the west. ' ,
.This will become significant in terms of some of
the problems coming up this next fall because of
some construction projects," Coffey said.
Traffic on 16th and 17th Streets is still trying to be
redirected but no successful plan has been found,
said Rick Haden, of City Transportation.
The committee discussed control of unauthorized
vehicles parking on campus.
Lt. John Burke said UNL is .the only institution
that doesn't tow cars without notice for vehicles
that don't have permits.
The increse ofvisitors is skyrocketing. And frankly,
we (the UNL police) don't have a solution," he said.
The biggest problem is parking for the East Campus
Union, he added.
The committee pointed out the Nebraska Center
was booked with conferences, so the overflow is
effecting the East Union.
Ideas of parking gates and high-rise parking
structures have been considered in the past the
committee said, but the expanses are just too high.
The parking gate would be $15,000 just for the
installment," Coffey said. t ,

Hidden UPC eggs
hold tickets, prizes
This year, the Easter bunny will come early
to UNL in the form of the University Pro
gram Council-East, that is.
UPC-East will hide about 80 plastic eggs
tonight in the East Union, said Venna Johnson,
egg hunt chairwoman. Friday at 7 a.m., stu
dents armed with UNL identification cards
can begin the search for the eggs and their
Students can claim only one egg, said John
son, a senior home economics major. Every egg
has a number that corresponds to a certain
prize, she said.
The grand prize, two tickets to the Dan
Fogelberg concert in Lincoln April 27, should
draw a large crowd, Johnson said. This is the
fourth annual UPC East-sponsored egg hunt,
The eggs will be hidden "everywhere, on all
three floors," Johnson said. And the hunt will
continue "until the eggs run out," or 1 p.m.,
whichever comes first, she said.

Suit claims MX deploy laws
Off The Wire 2
By Stccie Tbcrsas
A group of Nebraska organizations
opposed to deployment of the MX mis
sile in western Nebraska has filed suit
against the U.S. Air Force and the
Department of Defense.
Brian Coyne, vice-chair of Western
Solidarity, an eight-state regional or
ganization formed to fight deploy
ment of the MX, said the U.S. Air Force
and the Department of Defense have
broken and ignored federal regulat
ions. He said regulations under the
National Environmental Policy Act, the
Occupational Health and Safety Act,
the Endangered Species Act, the His
toric Preservation Act, the American
Indian Religious Freedom Act and
guidelines set by the Department of
Transportation have been ignored.
"It is truly disappointing to have to
file suit against agencies of the U.S.
government," he said. "Yet the citizens
of this region have been left with little
other recourse for ensuring that the
federal government takes its responsi
bility as trustee of the environment
Coyne said the final environmental
impact statement completed by the
Air Force does not include analysis
and comparison of ether possible bas
ing locations and fails to analyze con
sequences of an accidental detonation
or nuclear war. Coyne also said the Air
Force's examination of the earthquake
fault line used erroneous data
Federal safety regulations require
that no public roads or people be
within the safety zone surrounding
each missile silo. Coyne said about 90
percent of the roads near proposed
MX silos fall within the safety zone and
nine families are being forced to move.
To comply with federal safety regu
lations, the Air Force should be requir
ed to move the missile silo or not
deploy the missiles, Coyne said. How
ever, the Air Force has exempted itself
from these regulations, he said.
The Air Force also failed to complete
the required survey of endangered
wildlife, vegetation and historic areas
around the proposed missile sites,
Betty Olson, coordinator of Nebras
kans for Peace, said her group joined
the suit because it is dissatisfied with
the process used to deal with people
affected by the weapons system.
Olson said several groups and per
sons, including state Sens. Don Wesely
and Dave Landis, the Scottsbluff city
council and Colorado state officials,
have requested that hearings be held
to allow citizens to speak and ask
questions about the proposed missile
plan. The Air Force denied all requests.
Olson said that although two MX
plans have been rejected by Congress
since 1979, the deployment date re
mains the same. Tests and evaluations
affecting the safety and effectiveness
of the missile should be made before
the first 10 missiles are deployed, she
"Nebraskans for Peace feels the MX
missile is being rammed down the
throats of US. taxpayers before im
portant safeguards have been prop
erly taken care of," Olson said.
Marsha Fangmeyer, executive com
mittee member of Nebraskans Op
posed to the MX, said she is concerned
with the psychological impact on resi
dents who must live next to an immense
destructive power. Citizens affected by
this missile system deserve more from
the government, she said.
Coyne said that because the MX is
designed to be a first-strike weapon, it
causes extreme anxiety to the people
in the area.;
. Coyne said the lawsuit asks for an
' injunction to stop work on the missile -system
until the problem is corrected.
