Legislation would let restaurants
and bars buy hard liquor off-sale
By Jerry Guenther
Staff Reporter
After lengthy debate Friday, the
Nebraska Legislature advanced a bill
that was amended to allow bars and
restaurants buy hard alcohol from
other liquor establishments.
LB 154, which redefines provi
sions for the sale of wine to allow
wine-only liquor licenses, was
amended to included LB704 by Sen.
Tim Hall of Omaha.
Senators drafted LB704 to allow
retailers in the state to purchase hard
liquor from other retailers if they run
out of alcohol before they can pur
chase it from a distributor.
Sen. Rod Johnson of Sutton said
he was against adding Hall’s amend
ment because such legislation would
bypass the current three-tier system
of alcohol distribution. Alcohol cur
rently is passed from brewers to dis
iributors to retailers in the state.
Johnson said the current three-tier
system is working well and the
amendment would possibly be
4‘opening the door’ ’ to future legisla
tion that could abolish the current
‘We’re putting into
statute something
which is already
Hall said many bars already buy
alcohol from non-distributors when
they are out of a particular brand and
are in an emergency situation.
“We’re putting into statute some
thing which is already practiced,’’
Hall said.
Sen. Jacklyn Smith of Hastings
amended Hall’s amendment to in
clude a $300 annual limit on liquor
purchases from non-distributors.
Smith said the $300 ceiling is ade
quate to serve the needs of liquor
Smith’s amendment passed 27-1.
After Smith’s amendment passed,
Sen. Jerome Warner of Waverly pro
posed to expand the hard liquor
amendment to include wine.
But Smith, Johnson and others
said they opposed the amendment
because they didn’t want to expand
Hall’s amendment.
Warner’s amendment failed 11
Hall said he added LB704 as an
amendment to LB 154 because he
didn’t think LB704 would come be
fore the Legislature before the ses
sion ends this year.

Discovered twisted root joist
in Coliseum produces no threat
By David G. Young
Staff Reporter
A twisted roof joist discovered Friday at the
Coliseum will pose no threat to the building’s
structure, said Rich McDermott, director of the
Physical Plant.
The irregularity was discovered Friday
during a structural evaluation being under
taken by Olsson Associates, a Lincoln archi
tecture and engineering company.
“It looks like the problem seems to have
been there forever,” said Roger Severin, an
Olsson Associates engineer.
Severin said the problem involved one of
the old trusses that supports the ceiling of the
Coliseum, which was constructed in 1926.
McDermott said the roof joist, which is a
beam connecting the truss to the ceiling,
“doesn’t look like what you’d expect to see.”
Bob Carpenter, planning and design archi
tect at the Physical Plant, viewed the roof joist
with Severin Friday afternoon.
“It’s just kind of twisted slightly,” said
Carpenter. “It looks like it’s been under
Carpenter said the irregular joist is one of
“hundreds” supporting the roof of the struc
Olsson Associates’ evaluation of the struc
ture is being executed in conjunction with the
remodeling of the Coliseum for the next phase
of the campus recreation center. The evalu
ation should be finished by the end of this
week, McDermott said.
'‘Anytime you go into an old building,
you’re going to take a look at tilings,’ ’ he said.
“Looking at the structure, there is certainly no
McDermott said consultants will give the
final word on the soundness of the structure
when the evaluation is completed.
Though the structural evaluation will con
tinue, the roof joist problem is not a major
concern, McDermott said.
“There is no indication that anything will
be found wrong at this point,’’ he said.
NU backs aid change bill
AID from Page 1
The student with the lowest income
should get aid first, she said, not the student
who has a decent income but chooses to
attend an expensive school.
Jon Oberg, president of the Association
of Independent Colleges and Universities of
Nebraska, said public schools don’t neces
sarily have the neediest students, because
tuition at public schools is lower.
“No, we (private schools) have the
neediest students,” Oberg said.
He said the bill eliminates the definition
of need as being based on the difference
between costand income, which is the same
definition the federal government uses
when determining need.
“The current system sets up student aid
based on student need,” Oberg said.
LB468 would give virtually a free ride to
students going to low-cost schools, while
putting a “squeeze” on independent
schools, he said.
“The state would help most the student
who didn’t help himself through outside
work,” he said.
Donald Lienemann of Papillion testified
against LB468, saying financial aid of any
kind to students provokes laziness. He said
students should work their way through
college as he did in the 1940s.
“You should put your shoulder to the
wheel and push rather than having the state
give it out,” he said.
The slate should not give handouts,
Lienemann said.
“Do you want to strengthen the future
citizens of this stale, or do you want to
weaken them?”

could find out which companies are
against discrimination.
UNL needs an alumni association
for gays so it can catch up with other
universities in the tolerance of homo
sexuality, he said.
Gay alumni groups are recognized
as student groups at Ohio University
and Bowdoin College in Maine, as
well as other universities, Bell said.
Bell cited Delta Lambda Phi, a
| national gay fraternity organization,
' and Lambda Delta Lambda, a lesbian
| sorority at UCLA as signs of the gay
I community's progress.
Bell said the possibility that
I ASUN won’t recognize the group
, doesn’t worry him.
“We aren’t asking for money,’’
| he said. ‘ ‘ And there are constitutional
| cases which protect the recognition
I of student groups on campus.
The alumni association’s first
I meeting will be April 15, he said.
