During an afternoon news

“There is going to be a multi
million-dollar hit to this year’s
budget,” he said. “There is no
way a budget can prepare for a

The Association of Students of the
University of Nebraska has arranged a
satellite location where the speech will
be broadcast for people who could not
get tickets to the free event, which is
now sold out. King’s speech can be
heard via closed-circuit television at the
Nebraska Union in Room 226. The
speech is also being broadcast on the
Educable television station.
Parker said it was important for all
people, not just students or staff, to hear
King’s message.
“It’s important for all of us to learn
more about trying to work to live
