Fresh snow helps in arrests
By Jeff Zeleny
Senior Reporter
A Lincoln man happened to be eavesdrop
ping on the right telephone conversation early
Monday morning.
About 3:30 a.m., the man called police and
said he had just overheard a telephone conver
sation on his scanner between a pair of men who
had apparently stolen a van near 30th and
Randolph streets, Sgt. Ann Heermann said.
A Lincoln police officer sighted the van with
a shattered window near 21 st and G streets. He
attempted to stop the van, but a pursuit began. A
chase, with speeds reaching45 mph, went west
to 17th Street and north to Vine Street. The van
stopped near 25th and Vine streets, Hcermann
said, and two men ran from the scene.
Two police K-9 units were called to search
the area. A short time later, two Lincoln men
were arrested on suspicion of stealing the van.
Their footprints were easily traceable in the
fresh, falling snow, Heermann said.
Bodie, a Lincoln police dog, found the two
suspects hiding near 25th and Vine streets.
Walter J. McDowell III, 17,2461 U St., and
Sidney Labatte, 19, 315 S. 26th St., were ar
rested'on suspicion of auto theft. They remained
in the Lancaster County jail on Monday.
The van was stolen from a house in the 600
block of Marshall Avenue, a residential road
near 30th and Randolph.
Service provides quick GRE results
By Nancy Zywiec
Staff Reporter
A new service will let those who take the
Graduate Record Examinations General Test
get their scores by telephone a week before
results are mailed.
Scores-by-Phonc, offered by the Educational
Testing Service, began this month, said Kevin
Gonzalez, a spokesman for the company.
October examinees were given fliers with an
800 number after they took the test, Gonzalez
said. Callers can get their scores by charging a
$10 fee to a credit card. For security purposes,
callers are asked for information off their GRE
admission ticket.
All test takers still will receive a report by mail
about six weeks after taking the GRE, he said.
Scores-by-Phone is offered for those who
take the test with paper and pencil, which costs
$56. Gonzalez said those who take the comput
erized GRE, which costs $96, get their results
immediately after the test.
Gonzalez said he expected about half of
examinees to use the new service. Scores-by
Phone provides a service for people who want
to know a little quicker, he said.
Those taking the test in December should
receive Scores-by-Phone instructions with their
admission tickets.

The charges against Schlondorf stem from
the Sept. 12,1994 shootingof University Police
Officer Robert Soflin. Police said at least 11
shots were fired from a semi-automatic rifle
near the intersection of 16th and R streets.
Soflin, a seven-year veteran ofthe university
police department, received two minor wounds
to his neck and hand. Schlondorf also is accused
of shooting at two Lincoln police officers, who
were not injured.
Schlondorf led police on a low-speed chase
across Lincoln, beginning near State Fair Park.
He was arrested after a 20-minute standoff near
27th Street and Nebraska Highway 2.
The senior criminal justice major from
Clarks, who had once applied to be a Lincoln
police officer, was immediately suspended
from UNL.
He has been held on $1 million bond in the
Lancaster County jail since the incident.
