students should answer their tele
phones carefully for a while, said one
UNL police officer.
Sgt Mylo Bushing of the UNL
Police Department said he had re
ceived a report from one student of a
questionable telephone call, and ex
pects more reports to follow.
Bushing said the student — a fe
male living on campus — said she
was contacted by a man claiming to
be a representative of a major retail
store. The caller asked the student
personal questions, such as her ad
dress and telephone number.
Bushing said the student became
suspicious when the caller contacted
her parents and asked more personal
“They were questions that had
nothing to do with any kind of survey
a store would be conducting,” Bush
The call to the student, he said, was
made within the last week, and the
student’s report was filed with UNL
Police on Tuesday.
Last January, UNL Pol ice received
several reports from students who were
asked several personal questions by a
male caller claiming to be conducting
a survey for the UNL Department of
Psychology department officials
denied that such a survey was being
conducted, and the caller was never
Bushing said thercccntcallermight
be the same man.
Students should be aware that they
have no obligations to answer ques
tions about any survey. Bushing said.
If the calls persist, he said, the police
should be contacted.
Also, he said, if students have caller
ID, which identifies the telephone
number from which a call originates,
the number of any questionable sur
veys should be recorded, and given to
the police if the calls persist.
Bushing said UNL Police were
aware of only erne current valid sur
vey: a student health poll being con
ducted by the psychology department
at the University Health Center.
“Any other surveys may or may
not be for real,” he said.

“The state of emergency does
not ask for rationing,” he said.

we will request that university
facilities reduce their water uses
to critical uses only,” said Gary
Thalken, utilities manager of
UNL facilities management.
The first area for water ra
tioning on campus would be in
utility plants, where the amount
of water used in cooling towers
is the highest on campus, he
Doug Zatechka, director of
housing, said no plan fisted for
potential water rationing.
But students would be in
formed if there wasa water short

“I’m sure people would want
to take showers, and I encour

steam baths; make them short
and get out.”

Suhayb also asked about the pro
cess of getting musical groups to come
to UNL. He asked if there was any
bias in deciding who comes.
Members said they did not have
much choice in big-name artists, but
that they would try to bring artists to
serve every interest.
UPC President Gary Doyle said, if
the council had to decide between
conflicting events, council members
would base their decision on which
audience had been neglected.
“The problem that you’re address
ing is the problem we’re dealing with
all the time,” he said.

difficult. Fox said.

The bill comes a

To override the veto, 22 votes were

student fee increases.
Andrew Peshek, business senator,
said he was pushing the 99-cent in

was approved unanimously two weeks
ago, and only one senator supported
the veto last week.
“I think the majority of the senate
wants the 99-cent increase because it
