What to see
could end programs
By Gene Gentrup
If the State Legislature does not
grant the University of Nebraska its full
12.7 percent budget increase request,
NU will be forced to reallocate.
Reallocation would mean the end of
some university programs, NU Presi
dent Ronald Roskens said in a pre
pared statement Saturday during the
NU Board of Regents meeting.
Roskens said Gov. Bob Kerrey's
recommended 4 percent increase in
state appropriations for NU will fall
short of the 12.7 percent that the
Regent Kermit Hansen said in a tel
ephone interview Monday that further
reallocations in the NU budget would
mean cutting state expenditures on
new laboratory equipment, travel bud
gets and "freezing" employment spots.
Once a faculty position is vacated,
Hansen said, department heads are
eliminating the position. Because travel
budgets are being cut, many faculty will
ho longer be able to present papers and
conduct research outside the university.
"We've reallocated in three of the
last four years," he said. "I think we've
done enough of that."
Regent Robert Simmons of Scotts
bluff criticized Roskens and other board
members at the meeting in a written
statement. He charged that they have
refused in the past to support realloca
tion, cutting of duplication and other
steps similar to those recommended in
a report issued last month by the Citi
zens Commission for the Study of
Roskens and other regents declined
to comment on Simmons' charges.
In other business, the regents en
dorsed a proposed plan by Lincoln offi
cials to reconstruct the intersection at
16th and Holdrege streets. The plan,
which would cost the federal govern
ment $150,000, is intended to prevent
accidents by lessening the sharp curve
at the intersection.
At the intersection, one-way traffic
proceeds westbound on Holdrege Street
around a curve to one-way southbound
on 16th Street. The curve is sharp and
vehicles have crashed through the
guardrail into Antelope Creek, directly
west of 16th Street at that point. The
city will construct a six-foot-wide
sidewalk along the rebuilt street for
about 600 feet.
Regent Hansen and Vice Chancellor
Jack Goebel said they spoke with Lin
coln Mayor Roland Luedtke and were
assured the city's plans will not inter
fere with UNL's eventual goal to close
16th Street to through traffic on the
campus, a project they said is at least
five years away.
Regent John Payne of Kearney was
elected regents' chairman at the meet
ing, defeating Margaret Robinson of
Norfolk on a secret-ballot vote. Robert
Koefoot of Grand Island was elected
vice-chairman, also defeating Robinson.
Lincoln dentist Don Fricke was seat
ed to succeed Ed Schwartkopf, whom
he defeated in the November election.
The regents also chose Clark Enersen
Partners of Lincoln as the architect for
the proposed $4.3 million renovation of
Morrill Hall and the Nebraska State
Museum at UNL

Today is the 56th anniversary of the birth of American civil rights leader and Nobel Peace
Prize winner Martin Luther King Jr. With impassioned oratory and nonviolent civil disobe
dience, King turned the black struggle for equality into a mass movement. He is remem

'xperience leads to vice chancellor Js pos
By Ward W. Triplett III
- The new vice chancellor for Student
Affairs may only hold the position for a
short time, but Janet Boettcher Krause
says she plans to complete a major
project or two before her term ends.
Krause was appointed interim vice
; chancellor in December after Richard
Armstrong accepted a vice chancellor's
- position at the University of Georgia.
The appointment makes Krause the
highest-ranking woman in the UNL
The project Krause said she hopes to
initiate is the Student Assistance Cen
ter. The center will move those offices
with direct student contact to the first
floor of the Teachers College, giving
Dsn Du.'cneyCcily Ncbrstkan
students one area to go to for added
assistance and counseling. Krause's
office is already in Teachers College, as
is the Division of Student Life. Multi
Cultural Affairs and the Counseling
Center may soon follow.
"Our offices are the beginning, but it
will require a lot of coordination and
cooperation on everyone's part to finish
it," she said. "I really hope to be able to
help the staff make some things happen
that are important to them."
Krause said UNL Chancellor Martin
Massengale asked her to take the inte
rim position based on her 11 years of
student service experience in the
Counseling Center. That stint preceded
a four-year position as the assistant
dean of the College of Law.
Krause has been at the university
since 1953, her first year as an under
graduate. She gained her bachelor's at
UNL in 1957 and received a master's in
1966. She completed her doctorate in
law in 1978.
"This (UNL) has been a part of my
life for so long, it's just a part of me
now," Krause said. "I just think it's an
exciting place to be."
In between her own educational
pursuits, Krause has taught English
classes for the university and has
helped develop classes for the law and
Her English classes, all freshman
composition courses, were unique.
Krause stressed relaxation as a means
to better writing.
"The right hemisphere of the brain
is thought to be the creative side,"
Krause said, "It sees things hologra
phically. When you're relaxed, you begin
to use that side, and you tend to visual
As a result, Krause's classes were
treated to tapes of the ocean, breathing
exercises to set students minds to
"I used to have visualization exer
cises, such as a trip to the beach," she
said. "No two persons saw the same
Krause began working in earnest
last week, and still is busy meeting
other administrators and student
groups to learn more about the job.
"I knew something about student
affairs before, but it is really different
knowing about one particular area and
the basics of the others, then trying to
learn in-depth things about every
department," she said.
