Unions must settle for compromise
| By Chad Lorenz
The Committee for Fees Alloca
tion passed Tuesday an adjusted bud
get increase for the Nebraska Unions.
CFA approved a 1.22 percent bud
get increase instead of the 2.55 per
cent increase director Daryl Swanson
requested last Thursday.
The increase equates to $54,193
additional student dollars toward the
Nebraska Unions in 1995-96.

Brendan Bussmann, CFA off-cam

still were being granted a greater
increase than necessary.
“I couldn’t in good conscience
vote for it,” Bussmann said after cast

The GLC will lobby in favor of a

Tim Hall’s bill, LB217, to extend the

Hall, of Omaha, has argued that
Nebraska’s 1 a.m. cutoff for liquor
sales has hurt Nebraska economi
Hall’s proposal was first heard

Tory Sigler, an engineering col
lege senator, said that if Hall’s pro
posal was passed by the Legislature,
the state would benefit from the extra
tax revenue from liquor sales. Local
businesses also would benefit from
increased sales, he said.
Sigler said it was possible state
senators might think A SUN senators
would support the bill because it
would allow college students to stay
at the bars longer.
“My whole point to writing the
bill is not wanting the bars to stay
open later,” he said. “There are other
Sigler said students would be less
likely to drive into neighboring states
to drink for an extra hour if liquor
sales were extended. It could also cut
down on the number of people who

The senate will also discuss a bill,
sponsored by senator Brian Dusek,

cellor for academic affairs to develop

Dusek said the bill was needed
because students were concerned that
fees were being used by colleges for
such purposes as departmental ex
penses. He said it was unclear in
some colleges how the money was
“There’s no real check ... within
the administration that makes sure
fees are being correctly used,” he
Dusek said the policy would re
quire all instructors, departments and
colleges that administered classes
with student course fees to list on the
course syllabus how the revenue from
fees was being used.
He also said the policy would en
able students to know “right away”
how fees were being used.
“If students don’t see, that’s worth
protesting to the department,” Dusek
Logo use leads to lawsuit threat

But Dick Wood said the univer
sity had no pending lawsuit against
the Wayne State chapter of the Na
tional Organization for the Reforma
tion of Marijuana Laws.
“This is a matter of using a univer
sity trademark without appropriate
permission or license,” he said.
The chapter placed an ad in last
month’s Wayne Stater, the college’s
newspaper, featuring a caricature of
Herbie Husker with a Wayne State
NORML book, NORML’s letters on
his overalls and a rolled cigarette in

Bill Byrne, UNL athletic director,
responded by sending a letter to Chris
Parachini, one of the members of the
chapter. The letter informed the chap
ter that if they did not stop the illegal
use of the mascot, action would be
brought against them.
James Sanwick, head of the
NORML chapter, said he would take
full responsibility for the incident.
“This was an innocent thing that
happened,” Sanwick said. “This was
not supposed to be brought out of
Wood said in the last 10 years, two
suits had been filed against compa

marks. Both were related to the sale
If a group wants to use Herbie
Husker, it must go through the UNL
licensing agent, Wood said. The Col
legiate Licensing Co., an outside
group, handles copyright issues for
UNL, said Gary Fouraker, assistant
athletic director for business affairs.
Since winning the football national
championship, Fouraker said, there
have been no formal copyright in
fringements. But the Collegiate Li
censing Co. has been keeping closer
tabs on possible violations, he said.
Parachini insisted that the draw
ing in the ad was a caricature of
Herbie Husker, not a replica.
“The artist changed his facial struc
tures, his hat — the images are not
even similar,” Parachini said.
“Every small town in Nebraska
has Herbie Husker in their liquor
store. We did it in good humor.”
New owners make plans for Kelley s
From Staff Reports
A local bar may become a fine
dining establishment if two new own
ers have their way.
The owner of the former Kelley’s
Sports Cafe, Terry King, said he and
his partner, Bruce Bailey, were con
sidering four options for the bar now
Those options include a bar simi
lar to Kelley’s, which was located at
126 N. 14th St., King said. King said
he and Bailey wanted to put some
thing nice in the space, such as a
higher-quality restaurant than
Kelley’s. King and Bailey own the
space rented to Kelley’s and the apart
ments above the bar.
“We’re thinking of taking that
plunge, and that may be nuts,” King
King declined to discuss specifics
on the four options, but said a deci
sion would be made next week.
While the interior is being remod
eled, the space that housed Kelley’s

records show the space was bought

$15,000 from Kelley Emmons, the

When contacted, Buis said he no
longer owned the space.

The tactics are broken down into
two parts — resistance of the suspect
and control by the officer.
Resistance measures included psy
chological intimidation, verbal non
compliance, passive resistance, de
fensive resistance, active aggression
and aggravated aggression where a
weapon, such as a gun, is used.
Pitts said an officer had to per
ceive, analyze, formulate a plan and
initiate a response every time he or
she confronted a situation in order to
determine which control tactic to use.
Control tactics include officer
presence, verbal commands, empty
handed control, intermediary use of a
weapon and lethal force.
Officers used the pressure point
tactics to elicit painful stimuli to
control a resisting suspect. Pitts and
Officer Brian Giles demonstrated
their tactics, including the lateral
