By Linda Holmes
American Indian women are "carri
ers of culture," an expert on Indian
culture said Wednesday night at Love
Beatrice Medicine, associate profes
sor of anthropology at California State
University, said Indian women in the
United States must realize the impor
tance of maintaining the beliefs, values
and attitudes for historical and cultu
Women are reflecting a new posi
tivencss about being native, Medicine
said, who is also director of the Native
Centre at Calgary University.
Medicine's speech was part of this
week's Great Plains Conference spon
sored by the UNL Center for Great
Medicine said Indian are showing an
interest in their historical tribes,
whether they are Sioux, Lakota, Win
nebago or Crow.
Lakota Indians use the word "wiconi"
for their culture or way of life, Medicine
said. It is part of their attitude of being
a native Indian, she said.
Indian recrods still are transferred
orally, Medicine said.
How women are socialized is critical
in looking at how the status and roles
of women evolve in various cultures,
Medicine said the Indian family is a
misunderstood concept because the
stress Indians put on kinship and the
socialization roles of each member of
Puberty ceremonies also have in
creased for women, Medicine said,
because they allow older women of the
family to advise young women on rela
tionships, birth and raising children.
Sun-dancing and ghost- or spirit
keeping feasts has been revitalized,
Medicine said. She said she considered
that very positive for Indian culture.
Medicine said the increase in sun
dances among young people who were
caught up in alcohol is a posit ive way of
dealing with the social problem because
the ritual calls for sobriety.
For All Ages.

evening bus service between the
two campuses. Beginning next fall,
buses will run ( to 1 1 p.m. Monday
ASUN Sen. Erin Brisben said the
bus service is needed because stu

campus to the other are hindered by
the current bus schedule. She said
students who do not have access to
a car can't take night classes or
participate in extracurricular activ

the schedule. She said students
who do have cars are burdened with
UNL's scarcity of parking places.

The senate also passed a bill

A federal judge has ruled in favor of
the NU Board of Regents in an antitrust
lawsuit filed over radio broadcast rights
or NU football game.
U.S. District Judge Warren Urbom
granted the regents' request for a
summary judgment, which means the
regents have been supported in their
assertion that there is no issue for trial.
Musicradio of Nebraska Inc., which
owns KZKX of Seward, filed suit in
November 1985, against the regents,
KFAB Broadcasting Co. and Cornbelt
Broadcasting Corp., which operates
In the suit, Musicradio asked the
court for $600,000 in damages, claim
ing that the regents and the two sta
tions prevented Musicradio from sel
ling advertisements for NU football
broadcasts. Musicradio claimed broad
casts of Nebraska football games on
the Nebraska Football-Basketball Net-
work violated federal antitrust laws.
The regents denied they violated
antitrust laws and contended they
were exempt from antitrust laws be
cause they were a state agency.
In his March 16 decision, Urbom
rejected the regents' arguments that
they had acted as agents of the state
under statutory mandate when they
entered into the broadcasting contract
and thus were exempt from federal
antitrust law. He said there was no
evidence they, acted under mandate
from the Legislature in making the
But lie dismissed the case anyway.
Don Cavaleri, KZKX general manager,
said he was disappointed in the deci
sion but doubted he would appeal it.
Cavaleri said he had not talked to the
station's legal counsel yet and wasn't
sure if an appeal was even an option.
Michael High, an attorney for Musi
cradio of Nebraska Inc., said he is still
analyzing the judge's decision and will
wait until he sees the results of the
case against the other two defendents
to decide whether he will appeal the
The trial against KFAB Broadcasting
Co. and Cornbelt Broadcasting Corp. is
scheduled to begin Tuesday.

MUELLER from Page 1

flagrantly toss money at the university,
said Dr. C. Bertrand Schultz, executive
director of the Nebraska Academy of
Arts since 1975. Schultz, who was
director of the museum for 35 years and
was a friend of Mueller's said Mueller

"He had good ideas," Schultz said.
"He invented new things every day."
