Four prominent UNL alumni agree that the
state should maintain a strong university during
depressed economic times.
"We're going to become a country of the unedu
cated," said Breanna Benjamin, an entertain
ment manager and one of five alumni who
returned to UNL for Master's Week, Wednesday
Benjamin, oil executive Irven F. Wagner, food
processing expert Judith Kintner, education
specialist Armand L. Hunter and financial spe
cialist Dan W. Cook will visit classes and meet
faculty members and students throughout the
Four of the guests were interviewed at the
Nebraska Center for Continuing Education on
East Campus Wednesday. Cook, a partner in the
financial firm of Goldman, Sachs & Co. in Dallas
had not yet arrived.
Support for the university whether it be in
the football stadium or in the Legislature is
important, the visiting alumni agreed.
"If the university were not apart of this state,
you'd be North Dakota," said Cook. "It's a rally
ing point for the state.
Programs might be limited
But as the state's revenues go down, Wagner
said, UNL's budget must be cut.
However, Cook said, he hopes the university
will cut the least important programs, such as
traditionally unpopular classes, so the university
as a whole is not hurt.
While Wagner said he thinks it's unfortunate
that the university will have to cut back, he
"I would expect that the university will find a
way," he said. Wagner, who is vice-president of
North American Refining in Houston, suggested
that the university might have to limit the
number of students by raising admittance re
quirements, he also said the number of univer
sity programs may have to be limited.
"I don't think you can say that the university
is going down the tubes. It may be that it's going
through alterations," he said. "It has gone
through ups and downs throughout its history,
and it's still here."
Cook said that no matter what else is cut, the
$5 million that the Legislature has appropriated
for the -Lied Center for the Performing Arts
should not be taken away. He said the center will
bring talented business people to Lincoln by
making the city a more attractive and interest
ing place to live. He also said that the Lied
Center would help convince more Nebraskans to
stay in the state.
"Nebraska's greatest product is people and it
exports them," he said.
Kintner said she hopes the budget cuts don't
affect the quality of teaching at UNL
"The names and talents brought me here," as
a graduate student, she said.
Benjamin talked about three things she hopes
to give to her son an education, love and wings.
"When you start clipping away at the educa
tion, you clip away at the wings," she said.

the event expect a record number of par

Those arrested will be released after one hour or

"The best thing I learned was how to commun
icate," said Benjamin, president and founder of
F.C.O. Management Inc., a personal manage
ment firm for actors in television, stage and film.
"It boils down to communicating and getting
your message across."
Hunter said his UNL classes in the philoso
phies and other humanities helped him become
a better communicator in the working world. He
said those classes helped him understand people
and deal with them more effectively.
Hunter has served as director of the Continu
ing Education Service and dean of Lifelong Edu
cation programs at Michigan State University.
"You've got to learn some people skills, or you
won't survive," said Kintner a technical director
at Commercial Creamery in Spokane, Wash.
Benjamin, a 1961 UNL graduate, said that
while she was in school, the football team got

"We hung a lot of coaches in effigy. We seldom
won a game, but the support was still there," she

to lobby in support of
ethnic faculty position
By Jen Deselms
The ASUN Senate heard a request from the
African Peoples Union for support in retain
ing the UNL Political Science and Ethnic
Studies professor positioa
Reshell Moore, APU chairwoman, said the
political science position is up for review and
APU members are afraid officials will elimi
nate it and classes such as Blacks in Politics.
APU also is concerned about a lack of
minority faculty members at UNL She said
black students don't have enough role mod
els or a large enough support base.
Moore asked ASUN to help make UNL
aware of APU's concerns about minority
faculty and program elimination, UNL needs
minority faculty members because students
need to see blacks in higher status positions
on campus, she said.
