Student faces arson charges
From Staff Reports
A University of Nebraska-Un
coln student faces first-degree ar
son charges after a Thursday morn
ing incident at Alpha Tau Omega
Fraternity, 1433 R St.
Justin Anderson, an undeclared
freshman and ATO member, is ac
cused of lighting a piece of paper
and throwing it down a stairwell ol
the fraternity.
UNL Police Sgt. Bill Manning
said that while nothing caught fire,
smoke from the paper caused the
fire alarm to go off, bringing
firetrucks to the scene around 2:30
Anderson refused to talk to po
lice to explain his alleged actions.
Manning said.
The act is considered first-de
gree arson because it happened in a
living unit and the building was
occupied. However, because noone
was injured and there was no dam
age, the charge could be amended.
Manning said.
The charge is a Class II felony
carrying a maximum of 50 years
imprisonment. The minimum sen
tence is one year in prison.

day),” Manning said. “During the
year, occasionally, we have days
like that.”

Tadysak, who has a degree in busi
ness management, said he hoped to
obtain a job in a few years working in
the office for the company that spon
sors the tour.
He said he wanted an office job to
add some stability to his personal life
while staying in the promotional tour
David Alexander worked as a re
tail stockbroker with Drcxal Burnham
in New York before he started work
ing on promotional tourk.
Alexander, who works with sev
eral different tours, said he had no
dislikes about the job. He said the job
had no stress and was a lot of fun.
He also said he met a lot of people
and saw a lot of the country.
Several of the workers listed travel
as an advantage, as well as a disad
vantage, to the job.
John Moran, who ran the trivia
tent, said he joined the tour because it
was a good opportunity to see the
country and save money. Moran said
meals were his only major expense.
Moran said he liked living on the
road, living in hotels, going out to cat
and meeting college students.
Josh Procaccini, who was in charge
of the basketball tent, said he joined
the tour partly because he liked the
idea of seeing other parts of the coun
“Living in hotels, someone else
always makes your bed,” he said.
However, Procaccini admitted that
not being able to go home for three
months at a time was something he
disliked about the job.
T adysak said the job interested h i m
because each place was a little differ
ent, and he had a chance to meet
different people.
While Tadysak said he didn’t sec
too many differences in students from
different regions, Wilson said there
were definite differences.
Wilson said West Coast students
seemed to be more relaxed and laid
back, perhaps because of the warm
However, he said the East Coast
seemed to have a hard-working atmo
sphere. He said there seemed to be a
lot of wealth on the East Coast, dem
onstrated by students’ dress and the
cars they drove.
The students in the South, Wilson
said, seemed to be unfocused and
wanting to leave to visit other parts of
the country.
He said the Midwest, in contrast to
other regions, contained a lot of vari
ety in student appearance and atti
Wilson said students at UNL
seemed to be friendly, curious and
eager to participate in the tour.
The same 13 men travel together
for nine months, but all agreed that
they got along well.
Although most of the workers arc
going to return next year, Moran is
Moran said he was planning to
take further classes in film.
“I’m real glad to have done it. I
have no regrets.”

Two Sidney jurors interviewed by
the Daily Nebraskan this week said
contact with Endacott did not affect
their decision. Doug Smith and Janet
Volkmer, two of the 12 jurors, said
their decisions were made with an
open mind.
“There is absolutely no connection
between that prayer and ihc trial,”
Smith said. “I based my decision on
evidence, and I am comfortable with
the decision 1 made.”
But a Lincoln attorney, who re
quested to remain anonymous, said
the judge’s contact put the entire
Bjorklund case in jeopardy.
“The tragedy here is this was a
slam-dunk case. It was a slam-dunk
conviction and a slam-dunk death sen
tence. And now it is fatally flawed and
it’s going to make the legal system
look bad,” he said. “It’s just a trag
The attorney said that at worst, the
entire trial could start over.
“The defendant is guaranteed a
free and independent jury,” he said.
“By saying a prayer with them and
joining with them, the judge crossed
that line.”
Helvic could not be reached for
comment Thursday.

Chad Kozak, a junior business ad
ministration major, said playing for
the Rolling Storm in the game was a
worthwhile experience.
