Bill asks state for library funds
By Melanie Brandwt
A resolution that encourages Gov.
Ben Nelson to set aside a portion of
the state budget for the NU libraries
will be discussed at the ASUN meet
ing Wednesday night.
Andrew Loudon, president of the
Students of the
University of Ne
braska, said the
ask Nelson for
$300,000. The of
fice of the vice
chancel lor for academ ic affairs at the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln has
said that at least that amount is needed
to improve the libraries.
Nelson is putting together a pro
posal for the state biennium budget
The Legislature will be more likely
to consider the allocation if Nelson
includes it in his proposal, Loudon
“If our governor puts it in his bud
get, it has a chance of seeing it in the
Legislature,” he said.
But the Legislature’s appropria
tions committee, which puts together
its own budget proposal, could disre
gard the library fund request in the
governor’s proposal, he said.
Loudon said the libraries needed
more money because the subscription
cost of periodicals had been rising.
These increased prices have forced
the libraries to cut the number of sub
He said the libraries also must be
come accessible to disabled students
in order to comply with the Ameri
cans with Disabilities Act. One change
that is needed is elevator renovations.
Loudon said library officials also
would like to create an electronic class
room in both Love Library and C.Y.
The classrooms would be used to
educate patrons on how to use IRIS,
the libraries’ on-line card catalog, as
well as Internet and electronic mail.
If passed, Loudon said, the resolu
tion would convince Nelson and Ne
braska legislators about the need to
enhance the education of students.
“Education needs to take place and
that takes money," Loudon said.
He said the University of Nebraska
Board of Regents also would discuss
the resolution at its November meet

Hospital trip delayed by crash
From Staff Report*_
A Lincoln woman was hospital
ized after a one-car accident on
Tuesday morning, but not because
of the crash.
Police reports give the follow
ing account of the incident:
Katherin Stuefer, 26, was hav
ing problems breathing at about
3:30 a.m. Tuesday when a male
friend, 30, and a female friend, 23,
decided to take her to the hospital.
The group left Stuefer’s resi
dence, 2437 U St., with the female
friend driving and Stuefer in the
back seat. At first, they headed to
Bryan Memorial Hospital at 1600
S. 48th St., but the car ran out of gas
at 44th and O streets.
After getting gas, they returned
to the house and then left again, this
time for Lincoln General Hospital
at 2300 S. 16th St. Police would not
say why they returned to the home.
The three then headed south on
16th Street in the center lane, and
then they tried to turn west onto
South Street. Vehicles in the center
lane must turn east.
Traveling southwest, the vehicle
struck the median, continued across
two lanes of traffic, hit a pole and
then ran into Town Pump Liquor,
2100 S. 16th St. Police reported no
injuries in the accident.
Tim Jasnoch, store manager,
said the accident knocked several
bricks off the bui Iding and cracked

Chief Mike Merwick said the concen
tration of oxygen in the manhole was
too low to cause the gas to ignite.
Police and firefighters were alerted
about the gas leak by a 911 call at
about 1:45 p.m., Kennett said.
At that time, the Lincoln police
and fire departments, along with other
city agencies, were dispatched to the
scene. Merwick said he originally
thought the gas might be methane but
later learned it was natural gas.
Merwick was one of the first to
arrive on the scene.
“We evacuated the workers from
the Beadle Center, we evacuated ...
about a hundred and some people
around this whole area,” he said.
Police officers stopped traffic from
17th Street to about 22nd Street and
from Vine Street to R Street.
Power was shut off to the Beadle
Center and to several homes in the
area to prevent the pas from beinp
ignited, Merwick said. Traffic became
snarled in the area.
No injuries have been reported,
and Merwick said other university
buildings were not in danger.
“We checked down by the univer
sity, some of the manholes there, and
there was just a small concentration,
nothing explosive.” he said.
Beside the police and fire depart
merits. Peoples Natural Gas, Lincoln
Electric, the Public Works and Utili
ties Department and the City/County
Health Department were involved,
“There’s a lot of people that have
to interact,” he said.
Dick Clarence of Peoples Natural
Gas said the different agencies inter
acted well to get the problem under
“I would say with the cooperation
between the fire department and the
police department and utilities, it went
quite smoothly, I thought,” he said.
The evacuated construction work
ers were allowed to return to the Beadle
Center around 4:15 p.m., and most of
the emergency crews had left by 5:30
