I Police inform students of precautionary measures
ALERT from page 1
Mike Tobias, Wesleyan news ser
vices director, said the university has
been alerting its members for two
weeks that the suspected rapist may be
in their area. Lincoln police warned
university officials of the threat about
two weeks ago, he said.
The university has since put up
signs and hired an extra security guard
because of the Union College rape and
another intruder in a Wesleyan build
ing, Tobias said.
Joe Parmele, dean of students at
Union College, said his college also has
altered security habits to make the cam
The college sent out e-mail to stu
dents, faculty and staff the day after the
February rape on campus that told them
to be aware of the threat and offered
Amy Rager, ASUN first vice presi
dent who has worked to increase rape
1 awareness at UNL, said she was upset
UNL had not taken similar measures
to warn students.
No one called the Association of
Students of the University of Nebraska
to warn students of the threat from a
possible serial rapist, she said.
“You can never be too safe,” Rager
said. “You don’t just assume that
people move on.”
Ben Wallace, Residence Hall As
sociation president, said he was upset
residence hall residents and RHA rep
resentatives had not been notified of
the threat because the rapes have all
occurred in buildings.
Wallace said RHA now plans to
continue its Campus Escort Program
through finals week to help campus
safety at night. The program will run
from dark until midnight during dead
week, and from 7:45 p.m. to 10:45 p.m.
during finals week.
Those wanting a free escort can call
472-1167, Wallace said.
Cauble said although it appeared
smaller campuses without police de
partments have been targeted by the
rapist, UNL students, faculty and staff
should remain cautious.
It is not known if the rapist is near
Lincoln, Cauble said.
“In situations like this, a (suspect)
could be anywhere,” he said.
Cauble encouraged UNL members
to take a friend along at night if they
would be studying in a room alone.
They must not let a person without a
key into a locked campus room or
building, he said.
Anyone who sees someone who
appears out of place or nervous in a
campus building should call the uni
versity police immediately, he said.
If the rapes are linked, patterns in
dicate the rapist may prefer to attack
in campus buildings at night, he said.
Anyone with information about the
suspect should contact the UNL Police
Department at 472-3550 or the Lincoln
Police Department at 441-6000.
Legislature pays tribute to Warner
WARNER from page 1
Withem called Warner the “father
of state aid to education” for his ef
forts in reforming school funding.
Warner also organized need-based cri
teria for road construction and led ef
forts to bring Kearney State College
into the NU system.
“He had what I call constant re
newal,” Withem said. “I was amazed
at how he approached each new issue
with the zeal of a freshman legislator.”
Through all his efforts, Warner re
spected the dignity of the nation’s only
one-house Legislature, Withem said.
“He believed there was no better
institution in the nation, and he fought
fiercely to maintain its integrity,” he
Sen. George Coordsen of Hebron
said Warner’s roots in farming helped
him develop persistence in fighting for
“Those of us in agriculture know
that you’re never really done; you just
complete another step in an unending
process of building on the past for fu
Patrick O’Donnell, clerk of the
Legislature since 1979, described
Warner as a man with tremendous
“presence” who always made decisions
that were best for the state.
“Jerome Warner was a visionary,”
he said. “He could always see beyond
the hill to the mountain.”
Sen. David Landis of Lincoln re
called Warner’s habit of scribbling so
lutions to state problems on a piece of
paper, which he carried in his coat
pocket and produced at key moments
in debate. Many of those notes had last
ing solutions, he said.
“Jerome Warner had a gift for ho
rizons,” he said. “It wasn’t his oratory
— God knows it wasn’t his oratory.
Instead, it was an 8!4-by-ll paper,
folded in half and stashed in his suit
“Those sheets of paper came from
having listened exhaustively, past the
point of human endurance. It came
from a knowledge of government and
of the way folks really lived their
Sen. LaVon Crosby of Lincoln said
Warner’s legacy had touched the lives
of all Nebraskans.
“If you want to see Jerry Warner’s
monument, just look around you.”
After the ceremony, Gov. Ben
Nelson said it was clear that Warner’s
colleagues had held him in the highest
“It’s hard to imagine anyone hav
ing given more to his state than Sen.
Warner. He’s given us a legislative
branch of which we can all be proud.”
Warner’s funeral services will be
today at 11 a.m. at First Plymouth Con
gregational Church, 2000 D St. The
public is invited.
