    Moeser names Durst
to new assistant position
By Erin Gibson
Senior Reporter
In an effort to better coordinate arts
outreach efforts at the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln, Chancellor James
Moeser last week created a new assis
tant to the chancel lew position.
Dick Durst, dean of the UNL Col
lege of Fine and Performing Arts, said
he will take on added duties as assis
tant to the chancellor for the arts.
In his new position, Durst said, he
will report to Moeser and serve as a
liaison between the university’s three
arts centers that also report to die chan
cellor: the Lied Center for Performing
Arts, the Sheldon Memorial Art Gal
lery and Sculpture Garden, and the
Lentz Center for Asian Culture.
Moeser said the position will not
move any of the budgets for the three
centers under control of the fine arts
college. Those budgets will remain
under his direct control, Moeser said.
The new position will restructure
the way UNL arts units coordinate arts
education, he said.
“This restructuring will provide
closer coordination between the Col
lege of Fine and Performing Arts and
the world-class arts units we have on
campus,” Moeser said. “The college,
the Lied Center, the Sheldon and the
Lentz Center will be able to draw more
readily on each other’s strengths.”
Durst said enhancing coordination
of the arts at UNL will be exciting. He
said he will focus on coordinating arts
education outreach.
“We have several really outstand
ing arts organizations on this campus,
all of which are doing outreach to pub

Center, the Sheldon
and the Lentz
Center will be able

lie schools and communities across
Nebraska,” Durst said.
Durst said his new position does not
mean any operational changes at the
Lied center, Sheldon Gallery or the
Lentz Center, though.
“We have great staff in place,” he
said. “I’m not so assuming as to think
that I bring something else to that op
Charles Bethea, director of the Lied
Center, said the chancellor assured him
operations would not change and the
Lied Center will still report directly to
the chancellor’s office.
Coordination was the goal in cre
ating the new position and will benefit
all university arts units, Bethea said.
“I think there’s some real positive
details to this,” he said. “We all have a
common goal for creating a greater
awareness of the arts.”
Relatives of slain officers
testify in support of bills
POLICE from page 1
police officers occur as the officer is
attempting to make an arrest, the bills
were designed to include such situa
tions under aggravating circumstances.
In 1990, the Nebraska Supreme
Court ruled in “State vs. Reynolds” that
existing law included only those situa
tions where an officer’s murder was
committed by an assailant already in
the officer’s custody.
In that case, Terry Reynolds was
convicted of the murder of Lancaster
County Sheriffs Deputy Craig Dodge.
When Dodge responded to a call
reporting possible violence in
Reynold’s home, he was confronted at
the door by Reynolds. Reynolds, bran
dishing a gun, used his wife as a shield
to prevent Dodge from firing in self
Reynolds then stepped from behind
his wife and fatally shot Dodge.
Because Reynolds was not in
Dodge’s custody at the time of the
murder, the court ruled the aggravat
ing circumstance could not be used.
Reynolds is currently serving a life sen
tence in prison.
Dodge’s widow, Barbara Dodge,
We must provide the
opportunity for
punishment for
those who kill
on-duty officers.”
Gov. Ben Nelson
told the committee that Reynolds had
vowed earlier that day to kill any po
lice officer who came to his door.
“Craig was killed because of the
uniform and badge he was wearing,
nothing else,” she said. “This law
would make criminals think twice be
cause this crime would put them on
death row.”
By the end of the hearing, the Judi
ciary Committee lacked a quorum and
held no executive session in which to
consider the legislation.

She said she was disappointed by
reactions of minority professors at
UNL toward a fraternity ceremony last
month that involved a cross burning.
She said she believed both media out
lets and university administrators could
have done a better job of exposing the
ritual and its possible racial overtones.
“I didn't see anything on the tele
vision news and the Lincoln Journal
Star with quotes from professors of
color at UNL,” Polk said. “In the old
days, there would have been massive
demonstrations by faculty, staff and
students against this type of incident.”
The end result, she said, is that little
will change for blacks in the city of
Lincoln and the state of Nebraska un
til the attitudes of the people change.
“Nebraska refuses to address the
issue of race. Race is an issue, and
people won’t talk about it,” Polk said.
“They think if people talk about it then
they will have to do something about
