    'One percent law5 turns CBA into gallery of art
By John Fulwider
Staff Reporter
Results of a little-known Nebraska law were
unveiled Tuesday at the College of Business
“One Percent for Art,” a collection at CBA,
was unveiled at a 4:30 p.m. reception. The
display includes 20 works by nationally and
internationally renowned artists, including two
University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty, Keith
Jacobshagen and Karen Kune.
The art was purchased under a 1978 law
requiring one percent of the construction cost
of new state buildings to be used for the
purchase and display of art.
“The reason for the law was to get artwork
out of the museums and into public places,”
said Bob Carpenter, UNL campus architect.
“So the art came to people, and people didn’t
have to come to the art.”
We simply want to expose people to different forms of
communication and different points of view.

Nebraska was the seventh state to enact
such a law, said Suzanne Wise, a Nebraska
Arts Council program director. About two
thirds of states now have similar laws, she said.
Under the law, NAC determines funding for
each project and decides various details in
consultation with a committee from the new
Sandy Grossbart, a professor of marketing,
headed up the $55,000 project. He said the
pieces of art were hung in different parts of the
building, with each put in a place to play off its
An example is “Leslie” by Chuck Close.
The large-scale painting of a woman’s face
must be viewed from a distance to get the
proper perspective, so it was placed at the end
of a long hallway.
No piece is similar to another, Grossbart
said, and that was the intent.
“We simply want to expose people to dif
ferent forms of communication and different
points of view,” Grossbart said.
Grossbart said he and the One Percent for
Art committee had three objectives for the
• to have the quality necessary to attract
future art donations to CBA’s collection.
• to include works by male and female
artists conveying different cultural and ethnic
• to include examples of different forms
and styles of communication in contemporary
Grossbart said the collection was designed
to create a welcoming feeling for students.
“There’s something here for everyone, I
think,” he said.
NRoll allocates time
for repair and storage
System registers.
1,600without hitch

Students may be able to register
for classes anywhere in the world
using NRoll, but using it at any
time is another story.
The current hours of operation
for the system are 7 a.m. to 6:30
p jn. Monday through Saturday and
2 p.m. to midnight Sunday. That
comes to 79 hours a week.
Earl Hawkey, director of regis
tration and records, said his office
must shut down the system at night
for maintenance and production
“We need to dedicate that time
to take a snapshot of everything on
the disc packs so we can store it,”
he said.
The offices of scholarships and
financial aid, admissions, student
accounts and registration and
records are all on the same on-line
system, Hawkey said, making it
difficult to allocate time for needed
“We can’t be running financial
aid and admissions on-line at the
same time, or things could get
messy,” Hawkey said.
Expanding the system to run 24
hours a day was not really a con
sideration, Hawkey said.
“That would require a jump
from the university mainframe and
basically make us start from
scratch,” he said. “It might be a
possibility in the next year and a
half, two years.”
After the first day of fall regis
tration on Monday, Hawkey said
the system handled 4,600 phone
calls and registered 1,600 students
with no reported problems.
UNL atop Fulbright school
By Matthew Waite
Senior Reporter
UNL has notched itself another
top national honor — this time in the
The University of Nebraska-Lin
coln, as a percentage of applicants,
has had more Fulbright scholars than
all but one college or university in the
nation, said Jean Aigner, executive
dean of International Affairs.
In a letter to UNL public relations,
Aigner wrote that 60 percent of Ne
braskans who applied for 1994-95
awards were finalists — half won the
award. Nebraska submitted 18 appli
cations, and UNL won five awards.
The Fulbright scholarship pays for
one year of study or research in a
foreign country.
The ratio of Fulbright scholarships
awarded to UNL students to students
at other schools was better than
Harvard and the University of Cali
fornia at Berkeley, Aigner said Tues
The only school that fared better
in percentage was South Dakota,
which had only one applicant.
The trend looks to be continuing
this year.
With more than four months re
maining in the time when awards are
announced, UNL already has won its
first, said Joseph Stimpfl, assistant
dean of International Affairs.
Jennifer Galindo, a graduate an
thropology student, has been awarded
a Fulbright scholarship to study rock
painting in Australia, Stimpfl said.
UNL has sent in 10 applications,
and four were finalists for funding,
he said.
However, he said, students look
ing to apply for Fulbright scholar
ships need to act fast. Stimpfl said the
deadline for applications was Oct.
15, but if students waited to start until
the beginning of fall classes, it would
be too late.
Applying is rigorous, with a
lengthy application, an interview and
several application reviews, Stimpfl
Teenage mother charged in daughters death
WEST POINT (AP)—A 17-year
old girl was ordered Tuesday to stand
trial as an adult in the February death
of her 2-year-old daughter.
Cecelia Popoca Arce is charged
with felony child abuse. An autopsy
listed the cause of death as shaken
baby syndrome.
Forensic pathologist Dr. Thomas
Bennett of Sioux City, Iowa, testified
at Arce’s preliminary hearing Tues
day that Arce’s 2-year-old daughter,
Lucero, had external and internal in
juries including severe bruises to the
lip, scalp and brain, and cuts to the
upper lip.
There also was retina hemorrhage
behind the eyes, which indicates vio
lent shaking, Bennett said.
Arraignment in district court was
scheduled for April 6.
