University of Nebraska At Omaha Shelly Madden Roderique Editor-in-Chief A Commuter Campus A Growing Student Body 9 classes Plus |obs Usual Situation For UNO Students For most UNO students, a job is as much a part of school as classes are. Statistics compiled by the College of Continuing Studies, in the Spring of 1972, show that 74.3 per cent of the student population was employed— 37.6 per cent full-time, and 41.5 per cent part-time. These statistics exclude full-time employees enrolled in the Offutt Air Force Base Extension program and military per- sonnel attending as full-time students on educational assignment. The largest employer of UNO students is the U.S. Government, reporting 930 employee-students. Other employers who hired over 100 students were the University of Nebraska Systems, followed by the Omaha Public Schools, City of Omaha, Western Electric, and Hinky Dinky. There are many advantages to holding a job while still in school. Some employers offer tuition assistance. Many times a school job develops into a full-time job after graduation. Sometimes a job may serve as an internship, as in the case of Kim Monari, a junior majoring in broadcasting. Besides being a paid employee of WOW-TV, Kim receives three credit hours for her work. There are disadvantages to work- ing, however, and one is that school vacations may come, but that doesn ' t mean a vacation from work. Sometimes a job can interfere with studies and other school activities, particularly around finals week. Cherie Kipple 15 One Working Student Don Strange gains valuable on-the-job training in engineering at Continental Can Company. Since the University of Nebraska at Omaha is a commuter campus, and almost three-quarters of its student population hold part-time jobs, it is in order to acknowledge at least one of these " working students. " Donald D. Strange is just one of the UNO part-time ... or full time ... or perhaps just long time students. He is an Electronic Engineer- ing Technology major, and has been working toward a degree since September 1968. Although Strange was never a " bootstrapper, " he started his college career on his off-duty time while stationed at Offutt Air Force Base. Upon discharge from the service. Strange elected to stay in the Omaha area until he achieved his goal — a degree. During the 72 Summer Session, Strange was offered an apprenticeship as an engineer at Continental Can Company Inc., in Omaha. He accepted the position, but continued to carry a full academic load. " Acquiring on-the-job knowledge is just as important as for- mal education, " said Strange. At the end of the 73 Summer Ses- sion, Don Strange will graduate and receive his degree. " I feel it was worth it all, I feel I did the right thing, but 1 am looking forward to spending some leisurely evenings at home.

First to perform in the Coffee House was folk singer Jon Wilcox. On Novennber 12 and 13, he sang for enthusiastic audiences in the candlelit House. Other Coffee House events included: Bob Bovee, December 5-6; Pop Wagner, February 19-21; Open Session with eight UNO students per- forming, March 1; and U. Utah Phillips, March 5-7.

Mr. Francke is an Assistant Professor of Jour- nalism at UNO. 34 Highlights of the symposium on the Press and the First Amendment included lectures by William A. Rusher, publisher of the National Review; Peter J. Bridge, New Jersey journalist jailed for refusing to divulge news sources; and Sander Vanocur, former NBC correspon- dent. Following the lectures on February 7, 8, and 9, were panel discussions moderated by Warren Francke, Mary Williamson, and Gary Kerr respectively. The audience wrote questions on index cards which were then given to the moderators.

Casper Probably the most controversial position in Student Government is that of Speaker of the Senate. Bill Lane led this year ' s parade of speakers ... he was succeeded by Tom O ' Neill . . . who was succeeded by J. C. Casper. " I tried to expand the concept of the speaker ' s job, " said Casper. " The speaker used to get paid for setting the agenda and chairing the Senate meetings. That was an ob- vious rip-off. " The Senate, who appointed Casper in January, tired to impeach him in March. 41 i Thursday Night At The Student Senate Senators Greg Blodig, Caria Spencer, Debbie Magee. Senators Jim Cain, Marsha Miner, Ted Andrews. 42 ( ■fa From front left: Senators Jim Tenski, Sue Hale, Caria Spencer, Debbie Mageo, Barry Speare, Dave Newell, )im Cain, Marsfia Hiner, TerJ Andrews, Kim Schlatz, Doug Clark. Student Senate meetings are held on alternate Thursday evenings, from 6:30 p.m. to sometimes 11 o ' clock. The meetings are open to anyone, but there are seldom more than a half dozen spectators. Few students know the names of those senators representing them on the Senate. Consequently, few students have a voice in student government. Voter turnout has been poor in the past . . . the silent majority is indeed a reali- ty on the UNO campus. Senators Lou Hennles, Lang Anderson, Heshimu Iverri. Senators: Bill Hevrdeys Sue Greco Colleen Gregory 43 D. Michael Blankenship . . . " pro-human. " Education: Everyone ' s Business He is tall and lanky, with two- toned oxfords on his feet. He wears dress slacks and a shirt and tie which are poorly matched. He is majoring in math and pre-Med with a 3.6 CPA. As a matter of fact, he is the proud owner of a Regents Scholarship. If this fits the description of that fast-paced guy you see ail over campus, you know what one of your school board members looks like. You say school board member? Absolutely. He is a genuine, bona-fide, guaranteed elected public official. Who is this celebrity? His name is D. Michael Blankenship. He is a senior this year, and recent successful candidate for the Omaha School Board. Blankenship defeated his opponent Lloyd Berg in a close battle in the general election last November. Blankenship also edged Berg in the 72 May primary election. " My own expense was about $150 and the total expense of the campaign was $242.82, " said Blankenship. This financed yard signs, small campaign cards, and various leaflets and hand- outs. Blankenship charges his oppo- nent with extravagant spending. " My opponent claims he spent $1,000 in his campaign. But I question that. He had ten billboards, and simple arithmetic will show you that you can ' t finance a campaign with ten billboards with $1,000. I think I was outspent eight to one by my opponent. " Blankenship pointed out that his opponent was endorsed by the Board of Education ' s so-called " orange ticket. " Blankenship was the only can- didate elected to the school board without the orange ticket endorse- ment. One major concern Blankenship stresses is teacher competency in the Omaha Public Schools. This is one of the reasons which prompted Blankenship to run for school board. Blankenship felt he had a " rotten education. I came from a poor family, so I ' ve always thought education was important. One area of concern is the tenure system that teachers have. I think this causes many bad teachers. Several teachers have been teaching many years and sometimes they are not aware of new teaching methods. " 1 remember when I was in junior high school, and one teacher stood me up in front of the class crying and said I would never be any good and never make it to college. I will always remember that as long as I live. Why? Because that teacher was a very poor teacher. " Blankenship feels curriculum is not equal throughout the school system. " 1 went to South High School, and I didn ' t feel we had some of the things that other high schools had. Each high school is different. For ex- ample, modular scheduling didn ' t work at South High School. But, it seems to be working at Burke. " This inequity extends to the curriculum in the various departments in the schools. " I think the English depart- ment at Central High School out- weighs any other school. " I ' m not really pro-Bl ack or Chicano or Indian, I ' m pro-human. I think everyone is entitled to a good education. My views concerning school matters are completely non- partisan. Education is everyone ' s business. " Doug A. Clark Patrick H. Connell (at left) and Norma C. Pattavina (below), both UNO students, also campaigned for elec- tion to the school board. Both made it through the May primary, but were defeated in November.

" Vietnam Pro And Con Having spent almost three years in federal prison for refusing induction into the armed forces, David Harris, former student body president of Stanford University, criticizes the Vietnam war. " All men are created equal " " The nature of politics changes " ' Ours is a government of law, not men " a few myths cited by James J. Kilpatrick New Politics: Myth Or Reality? Kilpatrick answers questions at a press conference October 18. Julian Bond, young Georgia state representative, offered a more liberal view of " new politics " on October 27. Although too young to accept. Bond was placed in nomination for vice presidency at the Democratic National Convention in 1968. 49 hit m jr ■ ' •■ " |M| TP , ' « ATHLETICS Charlie McWhorter (No. 23 at left and on next page) dis- plays his Ail- American form as he darts through the Eastern New Mexico defenses during the homecoming game. Clyde Biggers Athletic Director Clyde Biggers came to UNO in 1972 with goals and ideas for the school ' s athletic program almost as big as he is in stature. The North Carolina native succeeded Virgil Yelkin in 1972 as A.D., and quickly set out to upgrade the UNO athletics into a " strong mid- dle bracket program. " He called for support from the people of Omaha and from the stu- dent body, while enthusiastically proclaiming that UNO should not play second fiddle to the Lincoln teams. In efforts to upgrade the program, Biggers pulled UNO out of the Rocky Mountain Athletic con- ference and then applied for membership into the NCAA. He also succeeded in getting a bill into the state Legislature that provid- ed for artificial turf and lights for the football stadium. Then he organized the " Maverick Club " a group that hopes to raise $100,000 for the athletic program by soliciting memberships. Yes, Clyde Biggers came to UNO from Eastern Illinois U., with big ideas and goals, but the big man is making the big ideas seem small. 52 Dr. Richard Flynn Chairman, Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation Football An 8-2 record, national ranking, post-season bowl in- vitations and All-American honors highlighted the 1972-73 football season. Charlie McWhorter, the little 5-9, 165-pound co- captain of the team, was selected to the NAIA All- American first team after setting eight school records. He broke Bill Engiehardt ' s rushing mark of 2,152 by gaining 2,161 and he did it in virtually two years of action. He was UNO ' s 12th All-American. Teammate and defensive tackle Bill Kozel was picked to the All-American second team, just narrowly nudged out at that position. The season ' s 8-2 record was the best since 1965, and was accomplished through injuries to five key players and a field that reached quagmire status at two home games. The team also had chances to go to the Boot Hill Bowl and had an outside chance to play in the NAIA Division 1 playoffs, but the wait was in vain. Head Coach Al Caniglia and assistants Carl Meyers and Bill Danenhauer all commented that the team was strong in the face of adversity and displayed an abun- dance of spirit and desire. The team finished in a tie for second place in the Great Plains Conference with a 4-2 record. 54 Enter: The Maverick ■J The Maverick was the new mascot for UNO athletic teams dur- ing the 1972-73 season. At left is Jeff Gamble, who wore the " head " symbolic of the new nickname. Although many fans were enter- tained by the new mascot, many were still irate over the abolishment of the " Indian " and " Ouampi " traditions. The Student Senate in 1971 ruled that the " Indian " mascot was dis- criminatory toward the Indian race. Football Scores UNO 44 Wayne State UNO 45 ... .

The award is presented an- nually to the football player deemed " most enthusiastic " in the performance of his football abilities. The award was initiated in 1969 in memory of " Hutch " who died of cancer that year. 57 Basketball The basketball season was highlighted by a near trip to the National NAIA tournament in Kansas City. In the first game in the best of three playoffs, UNO whipped Hastings, 89-88 in overtime. But in the two successive contests at Hastings, UNO fell, 95-90 and 99-90 and lost the national berth. Calvin Forrest, a junior, led the team in scoring with 609 points, a 21 .7 per game average. He also gained all- district and all-conference honors. Dennis Fisher, a junior, was se- cond with 401 and 14.3 and Kevin Nelson, a freshman, was third with 359 and 13.8. The Mavericks finished first in the Nebraska College Conference but earned a second place behind Southern Colorado in the Great Plains Athletic Conference, UNO ' s last year of affiliation. The 17-11 season record was one of the best in school history. Results UNO 64 Benedictine 70 UNO 91 Chadron 47 UNO 81 S.

" We have found it to be a great place with which to be associated, " said Chancellor Roskens, as he described the UNO campus. " There is a spirit of determination, zest, and vigor all leading to improved quality . . . and this makes me very happy. " Changes have evolved since Dr. Roskens came to the University on that midsummer day. " There has been reorganization of administration into Vice-Chancellors, which has meant increased delega- tion of authority and responsibility, " said Roskens. " The School of Fine Arts has been established which includes Drama, Music, Art, the Writer ' s Workshop, and Dance. " Efforts have been made to reach the problems of students and staff. " There is no specific plan as of now, " said Roskens, " but we hope to continue to accelerate communication with all segments of the University. Currently, we have the Chancellor ' s Round Table, consisting of 13 presidents of student organizations. We also have the Staff Advisory Council. This consists of one representative from each of approximately 13 departments. " The Chancellor hopes for more changes in the future. " Primarily, I hope to rapidly continue toward a un- iversity that is recognized to be among the leaders in its class. That means continued attention to quality education ... the teaching and the learning sectors. " Patti Green Reorganization Based Upon Functional Areas Smiling under the pressure of the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Nebraska at Onnaha is a hard job . . . but not so for Dr. Ronald S. Beer. At 5 ' 6 " tall, with dark-framed glasses, the mere appearance of the Vice-Chancellor and his smile is enough to invite any student in need of help into his of- fice. Dr. Beer ' s major responsibility is administrative operations, student affairs, and educational services. " My general duties are those of education and the student, " said Dr. Beer. " I am responsible for Radio, TV, Counseling, Testing, Student Employment, Orientation, and all areas of student activities. " Often found in the halls of many UNO buildings. Dr. Beer inquires about more efficient methods of ad- ministrative operations. Dr. Beer joined the UNO administration on September 1, 197 2. He spent the previous eleven years at Kent State University in Ohio. - e when asked the differences between UNO and Kent State students. Dr. Beer said, " 1 think basically they are both the same ... but the average age of UNO students tends to be older. This is a basis for greater maturity of UNO students, but the basic inquisitiveness and areas of interest are the same. " Dr. Beer is not settling for the same old routine on the UNO campus. " The most significant reorganization change is from the traditional Dean of Students and Assistant Dean of Students to much broader organization based upon four functional areas, " said Beer. " These are: Educational Ser- vices, Minority Affairs, Student Services, and Student Development. This change permits student services to be more responsive and more clearly defines the lines of authority. " With change and progress as incentives, the problems and worries of the Vice-Chancellor will never prevent him from emitting a smile. PattI Green I 75 Keefover Honored By Friends And Mayor Harold Keefover, Director of Business and Finance at UNO was named Omaha ' s " Handicapped Employee of the Year " by Mayor Eugene Leahy at an awards luncheon on November 1st. Stricken with polio in 1948 Keefover has not let his wheelchair detour his life. A 1952 graduate of the Municipal University of Omaha, Keefover work- ed in the accounting department of the business office while still a stu- dent. He chose the university mainly for its physical setup— the Administra- tion Building was the only building on campus. It housed all the classrooms. offices, the library, bookstore, and cafeteria; thus he was able to easily maneuver throughout. In three years time, Keefover graduated and decided to join the ac- counting department full time. In 1954, Keefover was promoted to chief accountant, and in 1967 dur- ing the OU NU merger he was named Director of Business and Finance. As Director of Business and Finance, Keefover has the respon- sibility for supervision and control of all functions related to areas of business and financial activities. This responsibility includes cashiering, ac- counting, payroll, budgeting, per- sonnel, university services, purchas- ing, and auxiliary enterprises such as food services and the bookstore. Concerning his award, Keefover said he had mixed feelings about whether to accept it— he ' s never con- sidered himself handicapped. He also said that while the award was a great honor, he was more pleased with the magnificent attendance of friends and colleagues, from the university and business community who came to honor him at the awards luncheon. Shari Steinwart 76 I Joseph Bettis: UNO Scholar-ln-Residence Dr. Joseph D. Bettis, 36, is the first scholar-in- residence in UNO ' s Goodrich Program. The program is aimed at providing scholarship funds for low-income students and placing them in an innovative academic en- vironment. The students work closely with tutors on an in- dividual and small-group basis. In addition, the program provides for a scholar-in-residence, a person of high achievement in his field, to work closely with students in the innovative structure of the program. Filling the post for the first time this year, Bettis saw the Goodrich Program as an opportunity to " get away from some of the rigid dogma and rituals of university life. " Bettis feels, " The Goodrich Program represents a return to the fundamental principle of university educa- tion which is responsibility to the student ... not to socie- ty or to academic tradition, but to the student. " A leader in his field (social ethics and the phenom- enology of religion,) Bettis came to UNO from the Univer- sity of Alabama where he was chairman of the department of religious studies since 1966. His interest in social ethics led him to serve as a technical consultant to the Office of Economic Oppor- tunity, consulting with community action agencies on problems of planning, community relations, civil rights and education. As a Fellow of the National Endowment for the Humanities, Bettis spent a year in Basel, Switzerland, from 1970-71, doing research and writing about the Swiss theologian, Karl Barth. He has studied pre-historic religions at archaeological sites in the French Pyrennes, and has taught courses in modern religious thought, con- temporary theology, history of Christian thought, and social pathology. 77 UNO Adds Afghanistan Studies Research Program The only Afghanistan studies and research program in the world has been established at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Scholars-researchers participating in the unique endeavor are focusing their attention on the Texas- size nation with about 250,000 square miles and a pop- ulation of 14-17 million. Christian L. Jung, UNO assistant professor of geography-geology and program director, said he and University officials are working closely with federal and international agencies to explore projects and funding. It is anticipated that the interdisciplinary studies program of the College of Arts and Sciences eventually will include seminars, workshops, and summer institutes at UNO, and exchange programs between UNO and Kabul University in Afghanistan. In addition, it is expected that an international center of library materials may bring to UNO scholars from throughout the world. A bove, Christian L. Jung, program director, points to Afghanistan.

Schilz look on. 78 Faculty Senate President Barbara Brilhart Copes With Frustrations, Apathy Criticism Although the top-level bureaucrats didn ' t really ponder over it, quite a few efficiency experts figure a camel is what a horse would be if a committee designed it. Dr. Barbara Brilhart, Associate Professor of Speech-Education, has attended many a meeting during the last twelve months. Why the extra in- terest in meetings? She ' s been presi- dent of the Faculty Senate, an advisory board to Chancellor Ronald Roskens. " After being elected to the posi- tion last May, I didn ' t know where to begin, " Dr. Brilhart remembers. " In a sense I was overwhelmed. I thought to myself " How am 1 going to keep up this job of processing mounds of in- formation and communicating regularly to the faculty in my liaison role? ' " However, Dr. Brilhart admits to feeling more confidence now. " 1 think we ' ve been able to work out some of the critical procedures, " she said. " During my term I ' ve seen the UNO bureaucracy change, " Dr. Brilhart explained. " We ' ve gained a new chancellor and several other ad- ministrators. Also, the Faculty Senate has been restructured and now realizes that it can ' t pass upon things such as student publications or athletics. We ' ve realized that our biggest input can be in the area of faculty welfare. " How has Dr. Brilhart changed personally in the hectic position of Senate president in addition to her teaching duties and supervision of student teachers in speech? " I ' ve had to learn additional organizational procedures, " Dr. Brilhart mused, nodding toward her cluttered desk of inter-office memos, committee minutes, and professional journals. " Also, I ' ve learned to sift the im- portant matters from the unimpor- tant. In doing so, I ' ve learned a tremendous amount of new thine ; about the university system, " said Dr. Brilhart. But there ' s been frustrations in- volved, too. " You fight for the faculty from day to day, yet you still get grumbling from the faculty, " she said. " Basically, I ' ve found them to be apathetic in not willing to fight for their rights. Too many say ' Let ' s let the Senate fight the battle for us. ' " Dr. Brilhart has trouble in pin- pointing any one day as being the most frustrating during her 12 month 79 reign. A day in the life of the Senate president can begin as early as 7:30 a.m. with a breakfast meeting, con- tinue with committee agendas dic- tating the day ' s remaining activities, with possible executive committee meetings lasting into the early even- ing hours. " There ' s this constant pressure of meetings, " Brilhart said. " Before you know it, the day ' s gone by. " Does Dr. Brilhart have any secrets for toleration which make meeting- after-meeting schedules seem more palatable? " There ' s a need to follow through on specific issues and recognize progress as it ' s made. You also need to learn to juggle criticism by deciding what few things you can improve within the confines of your energies, " Dr. Brilhart said. Balancing criticism with positive attitudes toward accomplishment has guarded Dr. Brilhart from excessive frustration. " I suppose, " Dr. Brilhart said, " the greatest pressure I ' ve felt has been keeping on top of legislation as it progresses in the Unicameral. There have been so many legislative bills that affect us. " Besides her duties as Senate president. Dr. Brilhart also teaches communication classes for the College of Education. In addition, she supervises education students in local schools who are practice teaching speech. Despite her demanding duties on campus. Dr. Brilhart has remained quite involved in her crusade for school speech curriculum reform. Also, she ' s been working for reforms in women ' s rights via the feminist movement. " I was for women ' s rights long before the movement became pop- ular, but I never really thought about it that much. Now many people are criticizing me because it ' s supposedly the unfeminine thing to do, " said Dr. Brilhart. In a lighter tone, however. Dr. Brilhart said she hopes that her posi- tion as Senate president has not in- timidated male colleagues. " I hope that I ' ve helped men relax a little more in working with women, " she said. " You don ' t correct them every time for what might be termed chauvinistic remarks. I ' ve had to learn to accept irritants as part of a long-time habit. In doing so, I suppose I ' ve become more tolerant myself. " Richard D. Brown Dr. Barbara Brilhart, president of the Faculty Senate, balances criticism with positive attitudes to avoid excessive frustration. The Film: Art Technology Change Dr. Robert Moore . . . after three years of planning, Film History course is a reality. The catalog description reads: Speech 231, Film History and Ap- preciation. Aesthetic values of the motion picture; history of the film and a survey of the elements involved. Behind the description, though, lies three years of planning by Dr. Robert Moore of the UNO Theatre Department. Realizing the need for the film to be understood as an art, as technology and as a measure of social change, Moore worked for the course since his appointment at UNO in 1969. The biggest problem confronting him was, of course, money. In similar classes at other colleges and univer- sities lab fees are assessed to the stu- dent to pay for the rental of films, sometimes running as high as $15 - $30 per semester. Dr. Moore hoped to ob- tain enough financial backing so that the student who wanted to take the class but didn ' t have the lab fee would not be prevented from doing so. Finally, aided by $2,000 from the Regent ' s Committee on the Perfor- ming Arts, and a certain amount of subsidizing by the Speech Depart- ment, the course was able to be offered for the first time in September, 1972. The objectives of the course are many. Students not only study the history and development of the film as an art, but are introduced to the primary film methods and technological aspects of the medium. Dr. Moore believes that an apprecia- tion of all aspects of the film-making process will enable the student to see more of what the film is about. Enthusiasm for the course was registered in enrollment figures. In the interest of group discussion. Dr. Moore had envisioned a group of 30. The course was so popular, however, that he finally had to stop issuing class cards at 50. By the end of the Fall semester, it was obvious that some changes in presentation of the course were necessary. Instead of meeting three times a week for 50-minute sessions, students suggested meeting once for an extended period, and once or twice a week for lectures and discus- sion. The extended session was to allow time for viewing a film in its en- tirety. Conducting the course in the Spring semester was Irwin Schlass, Instructor of Speech. Cherie Kipple 81 Nestled inconspicuously in the northeast corner of the Engineering Building is UNO ' s own television sta- tion KYNE-TV, channel 26. Some students do not even know it exists! Not only is KYNE-TV alive and well, it is also bringing recognition and awards to the Omaha campus. In September, KYNE-TV was given two important and significant awards. The first award was presented to the station by the internal Revenue Service for " Meritorious Public Ser- vice. " The award was presented in recognition of " an outstanding con- tribution to the greater understanding of Federal Tax Laws. " Specifically, the award was given for two, one-hour programs that dealt with certain aspects of filing tax returns. Each program included an in- terview with the District Director of the IRS followed by a taped instruc- tional segment. The second half of each show featured a live call-in with three tax experts answering questions. The second award was presented to KYNE-TV by its broadcasting peers, the Nebraska Broadcasters Associa- tion, for its series " New Forest Find- ings. " The series, for in-school and adult education use, was about Fontenelle Forest.

No Ratings Psych 101 Reaches The Community University of Nebraska at Omaha students are now able to earn three credit hours in psychology by enroll- ing in a course which combines televised lectures (which the student may view at home) with weekly dis- cussions on campus. James Thomas, UNO Assistant Professor of Psychology and Director of the Psychology 101 course, says the new format was developed to further extend the services of the University to the community, and to assist students who find it difficult to come to the University classes. The new for- mat will extend the present lecture course, televised by closed circuit, to off-campus viewing. Beginning January 18, 1973, Psychology 101 lectures were telecast on KYNE-TV, channel 26, from 10- 10:50 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, and 7:30-8:20 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students who enrolled in the course with call number 2904 par- ticipated in discussion groups during the day, at hours to be arranged. Those who enrolled in the course with call number 2905 attended discussions on Thursdays, 7-7:50 p.m. Each stu- dent viewed two televised lectures per week. Various technical gimmicks, such as the split screen, are used during the lecture series, Thomas said. Roseann Shannon, a UNO senior, assisted in production of the televised lectures. There were about 1,100 students enrolled in Psychology 101 in the Spr- ing semester. Five televised lecture sections plus about 35 discussion groups met on campus. The course covers major topics in psychology, in- cluding motivation and emotion, sen- sation and perception adjustment and maladjustment. The text is Psychology Today, published by CRM Company. To receive credit for Psychology 101, students must first be admitted to the University and registered for the course.

KVNO Fine Arts Radio Goes On Air llllllllllll The voice— stereo voice, that is— of the University of Nebraska at Omaha signed on the air August 27, 1972. Located in the Storz Mansion at 6625 Dodge, the FM station operates with 2900 watts of power. The project started four years ago, but KVNO wasn ' t able to broad- cast until 1972 because of interference with WOW-TV, channel 6. Later it was found that if KVNO ' s antenna was located in proximity of WOW ' s, the interference was minimized. WOW withdrew its Petition to Deny from the FCC, so the University station was able to stay on the air. Aided with a grant from the office of Health, Education and Welfare for the purchase of stereo equipment, KVNO became a reality. Paul Borge, Director of the Radio- TV Department, is the station ' s general manager. Frederic " Fritz " Leigh heads Programming and Operations. And, George Ragan func- tions as Chief Engineer. Advanced Broadcasting students make up the rest of the KVNO staff. Working in the Head of Programming and Operations, Frederic " Fritz " Leigh spends long hours at KVNO. areas of production, news and sports, these students not only gain solid practical experience, but are paid through the Student Activities Fund. If you are not a member of the masses that commercial radio strives to please, try KVNO. Music played on KVNO is not usually found on the AM band. Classical, opera, folk music, blues, and progressive rock widen the selection. Entertainment includes talk shows, radio theater, interviews on music, album and book reviews, the Last Ra dio Show, and an open forum for campus groups to express their views. Live coverage of University games and recitals are also presented. The KVNO program format is set up in time blocks similar to television so that listeners can tune in their favorite programs. Most commercial radio stations allow the listener to tune in and out without missing anything other than the usual music and news. You can discover a new dimen- sion in sound through a series of New Stereo Radio Drama from the Univer- sity of Wisconsin. The programs emphasize the avant garde and dis- play great technical skill devoted to sound effects and stage movement. 85 A unique feature of KVNO is the " Last Radio Show, " a progressive rock program aired Monday through Fri- day. " UNO Forum " allows students, faculty and staff to use air time for their organizations. Visiting per- sonalities to the campus are often featured on " UNO Forum.

' , ' ■ It ' ll I " Richard Duggin advises a student in the Writer ' s Workshop. Chemistry students have laboratories equipped with test tubes, little glass bottles of elements, and Bunsen burners. Athletes have gym- nasiums with hurdles, mats, and weight-lifting apparatus. Students of education have a center with film projectors, spirit duplicators, and tape recorders. The case of the creative writing student was much different. These students met from semester to semester in different rooms in different parts of the campus. There was no permanency in the writer ' s physical surroundings. The large square rooms with their straight- backed chairs prevented any kind of physical distinction between scholarly discipline and the freedom of creativi- ty. This, however, is only logical in this technological society. " Cultural, " says Dr. Richard Duggin, director of the new UNO Community Writer ' s Workshop, " had become a word roughly synonymous in the minds of all too many with a lace doily on a butcher ' s block. " In September of 1972, all this became history. The UNO Communi- ty Writer ' s Workshop opened its doors to its first group of apprentice writers in the carriage house, located on the property acquired by the University in August of 1972. This sudden change in status was not overnight. Its origins lie in an idea conceived by Richard Duggin six years ago. Establishment of the Writer ' s Workshop was aided by the findings of the Commission on the Urban University in the 1970 ' s, a commission established by the Board of Regents of the state of Nebraska. It was this com- mission ' s goal to examine the ap- propriate role of UNO as an urban un- iversity in the decade of the ' 70 ' s. Among the findings of the com- mission was the realization that " the community ' s cultural services are under-developed; such agencies as exist reflect only a little of the true potential. " It was this impetus that helped establish the UNO Communi- ty Writer ' s Workshop. There are many changes in the new creative writing program. Formerly, there were three courses in fiction writing — Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. These courses were absorbed into a single workshop in fiction-writing in which both credit and non-credit students meet. The in- dividual ' s own special interests and rate of progression determine the pace at which he moves within the program. 88 The Fiction Workshop, for exam- ple, rr eets two-and-a-half hours one evening a week. These sessions are devoted to discussions of the theory and techniques of fiction, and critical analyses of written work done both in and outside the Workshop. Oc- casionally, professional writers lec- ture. Smaller lab sessions meet another evening within the week in which workshop members discuss problems with the work they are currently doing. In addition, private conferences are scheduled by the stu- dent with the Workshop staff. Each apprentice writer works with a staff member in designing a program that best suits his needs. The UNO Community Writer ' s Workshop is open to students of the University seeking credit hours and to members of the community seeking non-credit enrichment. The main re- quirement is that the Workshop be approached with a sincere interest in the process of writing. Future plans of the Workshop in- clude a Studio in Poetry in 73-74, and a Studio in Playwriting in 74-75. By 1975, it is hoped that a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Poetry, Fiction, or Playwriting will be established. At all times, however, the program will re- main open for non-credit study to the people of the Omaha community. Cherie Kipple Below, Max Levy jokes with students in the Workshop. ' ' Creative— a word that enrages people ' Paul Engle (at right), Director of the International Writing Program, visited the Writer ' s Workshop Open House, October 23.

" Creativity, " said Engle, " needs a multiple of ac- tivity—intelligence, intuition, plus study. " John McKenna, Assistant Professor of English, conducts a class in the UNO Community Writer ' s Workshop. Major Donald Kelliher, Professor of AFROTC Why Join AFROTC? Bill Cook, Ed Kudrna, and Chuck Saylors are three students involved in the A.F.R.O.T.C. program on campus. The cadets were asked what the A.F.R.O.T.C. program is presently do- ing for them and what they can expect from it after graduation. Senior Bill Cook wants to fly. To get your wings in the Air Force is a hard task. Few make it, but the rewards are great for those who do. Cook is in the four year program and is one of the comparatively few cadets to receive a scholarship with full tuition, books, and supplies paid for. Senior Ed Kudrna has spent four active years in the Air Force, stationed in Washington state. He liked it so much he decided to sign up for A.F.R.O.T.C. to become an officer. Kudrna said he eventually plans to work with missiles, preferably in the Montana area. Although the shifts are long and exhausting both mentally and physically, Kudrna feels obtaining a master ' s degree is worth the work. One of the reasons senior Chuck Saylors joined A.F.R.O.T.C. was for job placement when he leaves the service. Twenty scholarships were given to UNO cadets this year alone. 91 Junior and senior cadets receive monthly payment as an added incen- tive in joining the program. Courses involving the history and organization of the Air Force, defense system, and air power are normal curriculum for all cadets. the Arnold Air Society for men, and its counterpart Angel Flight for women. The activities are involved in blood drives, and were responsible for selling over $1500 worth of Prisoner of War bracelets. Kim Stevens Activities for the cadets include student Vets Now Have Helping Hand It ' s not much fun to be a twenty- three-year-old freshman, especially when you ' re with students three or four years your junior and you ' re not sure of what ' s going on. But, this is the fate of many retur- ning veterans who have decided to continue their educations. Luckily for the vets at UNO, something has been done to make their reorientation a bit easier. Last August, at the close of summer session, Parke Heller and some of his associates from the College Veterans Association got together. They persuaded the Univer- sity to open an office for Student Veterans Affairs. The College Veterans Associa- tion, a social organization at UNO, has been helping veterans for some time. During registration, they helped vets with questions by explaining the registration procedure and by direc- ting the vets to the right people. They also explained how to start G.I. bill benefits. By August 14, 1972, an office for Student Veterans Affairs was set up in the Student Government office, located in the Milo Bail Student Center, room 232. The office welcomes any veteran with a question about benefits, food stamps, finding employment, and anything else he may need to know. A workshop for veterans, held in October, was designed to help prepare vets for job interviews and writing resumes. The need for this type of training became apparent when Omaha held its city job fair and eighty per cent of those who attended weren ' t dressed well enough to take advantage of it. Many people arrived shirtless, while an even larger number came without shoes. Future plans of the College Veterans Association include taking the job workshop out into the Omaha community so that a greater number of individuals will be able to take ad- vantage of it. There are also plans to contact Omaha city officials in charge of last year ' s job fair with a proposal to hold this year ' s fair on the UNO cam- pus. The Student Veterans Affairs Of- fice (relocated in February to the first floor of the Student Center) offers Omaha ' s returning vet a helping hand during his often confusing readjust- ment to academic life.

Coaches make last minute instructions. It ' s game time! Only there ' s one ingredient mis- sing — the stands are nearly empty of spectators. It ' s definitely not a scene from Devaney-land. Nor does it depict UNO ' s own Mavericks. The UNO Women ' s Volleyball Team is the neglected group, and they are just a part of the Women ' s Physical Educa- tion Department on campus that is too easily overlooked. Ms. Connie Claussen, head of the department, whose office is tucked away in one of the Quonset Huts behind the Administration Building, believes more publicity, funds, facilities, and faculty are the keys to improving and expanding the programs under her jurisdiction. " We ' ve got the students with the needed talent, " she explained, " . . . it ' s a lack of equipment and space and time that limits us. " By time, Ms. Claussen indirectly refers to the teacher-student ratio in Women ' s P.E. which is relatively un- balanced with some 70 majors and an unknown score of women in required activities classes to four faculty members. Competitive intercollegiate sports are directed on free time, and, as Ms. Claussen said, " When you volunteer your time, your first emphasis is classes, because that ' s what you ' re hired to do. " Eventually the department hopes to see a load reduction as the men ' s department has undergone. Women ' s P.E. presently offers, on a large scale, bowling, tennis, and golf as service courses for P.E. re- quirements of non-majors. Plans call for these three courses to be enrolled and taught as regular co-ed classes next semester. The merger is a natural one with the P.E. budget already shared between the men ' s and women ' s departments. The budget for women ' s inter- collegiate competition, however, doesn ' t work as smoothly. Student ac- tivity fees provide funds for the Women ' s Recreational Association (WRA) which in turn delegates money to the sports program. This year Ms. Claussen has $1500 to work with. She said the department is " very ap- preciative " of the Student Activity fees allotment which is a little more than received in the past. Without it, the program wouldn ' t operate at all. " With more money we could do a few more things, of course, " she said, " although it would mean more time volunteered ... we could eat a little better after games for instance, " she specified, wondering about that difference between men ' s and women ' s intercollegiate programs. Georgeann Parizek, a P.E. major hoping to teach on the elementary level, is in her third year of inter- collegiate competition and would like to see funds increased also. " While other schools have novice and varsity teams, we can financially handle only one, " she said. On the whole, facilities for Women ' s P.E. are poor. Although equipment for activity classes is shared with the men ' s department, use of the fieldhouse is limited and, as P.E. major Karen Peterson pointed out, the Quonset Hut gym ceiling is really too low for most sports. Ms. Peterson, who taught gymnastics for 96 three years after high school through dance studios, would like to see the UNO department expand in that area from its beginning and intermediate classes to a more extensive, complete level. But a good women ' s gymnastic program is unable to get off the ground because of lack of equipment and trained faculty. The biggest complaint Ms. Claussen and P.E. students have is the absence of a swimming program on campus. " It ' s a shame that a university this size doesn ' t have a swimming pool. " Ms. Claussen said. " We should have two. " At present, majors needing swimming courses to pass P.E. requirements take them at West- side High School ' s pool. But no tour- nament competition can be under- taken under this set-up. Ms. Claussen believes a swimming facility on cam- pus could benefit not only students, but the faculty and Omaha communi- ty as well. Sophomore P.E. major Rhonda McNutt, who swam competitively for nearly ten years in the Amateur Athletic Union, shares her sentiments. " There are some P.E. majors who don ' t even know how to swim, " she said. " How can they get their Senior Lifesaving Certificate and graduate? " She felt the 7 a.m. classes at Westside create transportation and time hassles, and said if UNO built a pool " You couldn ' t keep me away. " She would also like to see a women ' s track program initiated. The department ' s publicity program is perhaps a key factor in retarding progress and recognition in the competitive program. Game coverage and promotional materials most definitely can determine crowd size, Ms. Claussen believes. Posters are continually being displayed to promote interest, Georgeann Parizek said, but she feels students have become " immune " to them. " You practically have to tap people on the shoulder any more, " she said, but added that actually word-of-mouth has proved the best channel of publicity. " We had more turn-outs for try-outs this semester than ever before, " she said. Coverage in the Gateway (the campus newspaper) is nil, Ms. Claussen said. During the fall semester two m i n i m u m - 1 e n gt h artic les appeared. Despite contacts with the Omaha World-Herald ' s sports depart- ment, no coverage has been solicited there either. " It might be a problem on both sides, " Ms. Claussen reflected. " Maybe we don ' t push hard enough. " Gateway sports editor Steve Pivovar realizes the imbalance but said he is understaffed and overwork- ed himself. " Besides, " he added, " we ' re working under an age-old belief that men ' s sports are more appealing. " That belief is the basic reason the women ' s program has taken a back- seat to men ' s athletic competition. And just what does this com- petitive program for women involve? Teams in volleyball (fall semester), basketball (winter), and softball (spr- ing semester) meet schools such as College of St. Mary ' s, Wayne State, Wesleyan, Midland College, UNL, Platte junior College, and North East junior College in game schedules concluded with state play-offs. Any fulltime woman student (not just P.E. majors) with at least a 2.0 grade point average can try out for the teams. UNO has performed best in soft- ball. In 1970 the women ' s team took third place in the state tournament; in 1972 they placed second. This year Ms. Claussen said " We have as good a chance as anybody to take first. " UNO co-hosts the Women ' s College World Series, which is on a national level, with the Omaha Softball Association. Competition bowling is also a part of the women ' s program, although not on as large a scale as the other three sports. The Women ' s Recreation League sponsors tour- naments between nine member teams at the West Lanes. " Depending on the money situation, " Ms. Claussen said, " we ' re planning on entering at least one so far. " Women ' s intercollegiate sports were under consideration about five years ago at UNO, but not until the ' 69- ' 70 school year was there any real competition. At that time UNO joined the Nebraska Women ' s Inter- collegiate Sports Council (NWISC) Due partially to poor publicity, the stands are almost empty during a women ' s basketball game. 97 . . playing to the best of your ability . . . that ' s the best goal ' Connie Claussen which designates rules and regulations for competition between its fourteen members. " Very few people realize we also have a national organization, " Ms. Claussen said. UNO is a charter member of a year-old Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) which includes nine regional and state organizations. " It ' s very new and we ' ve got lots to learn yet, " Ms. Claussen said, " so we ' re continually in the process of revising. " Scholarships in the women ' s P.E. department are non-existent. Ms. Claussen explained that the women in the department feel a student should choose a university for academic growth. " It ' s students first, athletes second, " she said. " We ' re not trying to come up with a super-program in athletics. . . our philosophy is to be able to offer a program for women in- terested in competition. " " Winning is not our only goal, " Ms. Claussen said, " Too many people believe that it ' s not how you play the game, it ' s whether you win or lose . . . Some teams are better than us, and we have to learn how to lose in competition. But if we ' re evenly matched, nine times out of ten we ' ll win . . . You get the most satisfaction out of just playing to the best of your ability . . . that ' s the best goal. " Ms. Claussen feels this attitude is prevalent in women ' s competition, and it can have a positive influence on spectator behavior. Her biggest con- cern is " crowd control, " if women ' s sports grows to the point of crowds. Usually unknown to the public is the fact that rules for a women ' s game are not the same for a men ' s game in the same sport. Thus spectators become irate with officials for calls they don ' t realize are justifiable. " You have to have cooperation from the crowd, " Ms. Claussen ex- plained, using tennis matches or golf rounds, where the audience observes an unwritten rule of silence, as ex- amples. " The crowd can help or hinder the teams, " she said. In any case, crowds are essential to a healthy competitive program. " It ' s simply human nature, " said Ms. Claussen, " to put out more effort when you have someone cheering you on. " A man on campus cheering the women ' s program on is Dr. Francis Hurst, psychology teacher and a firm believer in physical fitness and sports competition. " Connie Claussen ' s done an ex- cellent job with what she ' s had to work with, " he said. " She really should have more money available for equipment and expansion. " Dr. Hurst has been advocating a swimming pool on campus for years. Student-aiding in junior high in the fall semester was Sue Jaksich, a P.E. major not involved in inter- collegiate competition, who nevertheless perhaps best describes why a woman chooses this field. " I started off as an accounting major, " she said, " but I decided I just couldn ' t sit at a desk day after day. I have to be active and I like par- ticipating in sports, although not on a competitive level. I realize there ' s not as much money in physical education, but I ' m happy with what I ' m doing. " Donna Luers 98 Human Liberation in 73 For the second consecutive year, someone from UNO has been elected president of the Omaha chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW). Cherie Kipple, a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences, is the 1973 president. Associate Professor of History Jacqueline St. John was president in 72. One important activity of NOW is that of providing speakers for various groups, said Ms. Kipple. Westside High School has re- quested a speaker on two occasions, and the young audiences have been very responsive and inquisitive. Breaking Through A 21-year-old, brown-eyed beau- ty, Cynthia Gene Herrington, has be- come the first Security Policewoman on the UNO campus. " It took me eight months to get on the force, " said Cindy, describing her efforts to land the job. " I started out in May of 1972 ... I thought the job would be something interesting, and pay well. " Cindy had been working in the Duplicating Office of the University. " I worked in Duplicating until I had a pretty bad acci- dent that tore the ligaments in my arm and back, " she said, " I soon found the papers were too heavy to lift and they only made my arms and back hurt more. The Security job looked like it would be much easier on me. " So, for the next eight months, Cindy Herrington ' s goal was to become UNO ' s first lady cop. " Mike Loftus told me yes, " she said, recalling Campus Security ' s side, " but he had not yet talked to the administration. He said he would find out the situation as soon as possible. I kept going back to him and asking him, but I still didn ' t get any answers. Finally, I had to rely upon my own ' grapevine ' for the inside information. I would find out about things concerning the situation before Personnel did. I kept on bugging them until the job was narrowed down between another girl and me. " And, on December 4, 1972, Cindy Herrington officially became UNO ' s first Security Policewoman. 100 Judging from her dress, there is no discrimination between Cindy and the men on the force. " 1 don ' t wear a dress because it is way too cold, " said Cindy in reference to the dress code. " This is a regular uniform everyone is required to wear. In the spring, it is likely that I will wear a dress. I am waiting for the new director before I ask about making my uniform more feminine. " Cindy ' s job duties are equal to those of the men on the force. " I do the usual things, " said Cin- dy. " 1 write tickets, investigate ac- cidents and larcenies, answer questions, unlock car doors, and a lit- tle bit of everything. " Although she thoroughly enjoys her job, there have been times when she has had a lot of hassle. " I have had quite a few problems, " said Cindy. " The com- ments have been bad, I have had snowballs thrown at me, some people have given me threats of a black eye, and I have had a Volkswagon run over my feet with its front tires. " She went on to describe her most humiliating moment. " The worst thing that ever happened to me was to have a girl spit on me, " she said. " I was never so em- barrassed, humiliated, and furious in my life. " But, the joys of her work far sur- pass the bad moments. " I could never go back to an of- fice job ... I love my freedom too much. " Along with her fulltime job, Cin- dy also carries six credit hours, and is majoring in Criminal Justice. Patti Green V.

Facilities are not ideal, and are often crowded. Phase I! of the Performing Arts Center will provide a new setting for art students. The present conditions have not hindered the progress of several UNO students. Eight students won awards of $100 each for outstanding work done in the art department. The winners were: Robert Anderson, Robert Eyberg, Robert Hower, Jerry Podany, Pat Robbins, Jane Ross, Earl Stone, and James Wakin. Robert Van Wagner uses slides in teaching Art History. Two senior art students were selected to show works in juried art shows. Robert Hower was chosen to show paintings in the 34th An- nual Fall Show at Sioux City Art Center and the 42nd Annual Springfield, Missouri Exhibition. Pat Robbins was selected for the Springfield show. " This accomplishment by two seniors is no mean task, " said Peter Hill, Chairman of the art depart- ment. " The competition is ex- tremely difficult, especially in shows with such fine reputations. " Competition for the Spring field show was among artists from 10 states, and for the Sioux City show among artists from five states. Sorting slides is a tedious but necessary job in the art department. 110 1 The Gallery I The UNO Art Student Forum sponsored a Juried Student Art Show February 12-March 2, in the Gallery, room 371, Administration Building. Norman Geske, director of the Sheldon Art Museum, Lincoln, and Jon Nelson, assistant director of the Sheldon, judged the show. There were three cash awards. Jane Ross won $50 for her sculpture entitled " Boadicea. " Lloyd Kelly won $25 for his pencil drawing called " Helen. " The second $25 award went to Gloria Dorok for her acrylic pain- ting, " Untitled. " The show was open to any UNO art student in either the Bachelor of Fine Arts program, the Bachelor of Arts program, or the K-12 program. 112 America Hurrah INTERVIEW 1st Interviewer Sheryl Harris 1st Applicant Steve Wheeldon 2nd Applicant Karen Foote 3rd Applicant Jim Moran 4th Applicant Jo Gaughan 2nd interviewer Donald Hill 3rd Interviewer Sharon Phillips 4th Interviewer Gene Sarro TV Hal Jim Moran Susan Sharon Phillips George Gene Sarro TV Actors Karen Foote Steve Wheeldon Jo Gaughan Sheryl Harris . . . after all our subtle colour and nervous rhythm, after the faint mixed tints of Condor, what more is possible?

Naylor removed a shovelful of dirt from the site of a new science building, which would be called Aliv ine Hall two years later. Federal funds totaling about $305,000 supplemented student tuitions, a record. A total of 10,600 students, another record, attended classes at O.U. Dr. Paul Beck began a Black History course, concentrating on the Black man ' s contributions to America. Omaha radio station KOWH began broadcasting OU ' s football games, while Coach Al Caniglia ' s In- dians fought valiently. " Radio Free Omaha " caused a stir, as did President Lyndon Johnson ' s Viet Nam bombing halt. Seniors were hoping that a plan to excuse seniors from final exams would go through. Movies like " 2001: A Space Odyssey, " " Romeo and Juliet, " and " Barbarella " could be seen at Omaha theaters for only a buck and a quarter a head. The newly formed Broadcasting sub-department awaited okaying of a planned FM station license applica- tion. January, 1969 Emmet Cribbs was teaching a new Black Literature course, while Black Liberators for Action on Campus began to organize. The Students for a Democratic Society was drawing attention, while a satirical organization calling itself Students for a Normal Society laughed at them. The Milo Bail Student Center opened what it called a television theater. The Book Store started a new practice: book buy-backs at the end of a semester. Despite continuing op- position, cigarette and tavern adver- tising in the Gateway was okayed. A proposed " Dead Day " before final ex- aminations was labelled as impossible by the Student Senate. Creighton University was drawing attention with both students and faculty publicly fighting Creighton ' s mandatory ROTC program. Maximillian Schell ' s version of " Hamlet " was a box office smash, along with " Ice Station Zebra, " " Fun- ny Girl, " and " 2001 " continued to astound viewers. Bill Cosby, the Irish Rovers, and the Four Tops appeared in Omaha. " Rock ' n ' Roll " was gaining favor over Psychedelic or Acid Rock. Andy Warhol ' s " Nude Restaurant " was showing at the Old Market ' s " Edison Exposure. " and the film was becoming a controversy before it left town. Parking was a problem, and the Elmwood Park Ravine was a likely can- didate. Fall, 1969 The world had not yet recovered from the shock of Martin Luther King ' s killing, when Robert Kennedy was felled by a bullet in the brain. The world was further shocked by the appearance of Soviet tanks in Prague, Czekoslovakia; the Viet Nam war con - tinued, despite newly inaugurated President Richard M. Nixon ' s efforts. In July 1969, Omaha University became the University of Nebraska at Omaha. " Numero UNO " became the spirit slogan for UNO ' s football effort. " Dead Day " and no finals for graduating seniors both became a practicable reality. Allwine Hall was nearing com.ple- tion; it would cost close to three million dollars by the time of its first use. Another building was being planned by the University — it would be known as Kayser Hall. Parking was a problem, and the Elmwood Park Ravine was a likely can- didate. Ecologists were planning an organized opposition. 175 Kayser and Allwine Halls are finished and in full opera- tion. Kirk Naylor vacated his position and Durward Varner took his place. The Kent State tragedy and ckson State College shakes the public. Despite the voiced fear and anxiety, students become more anti-war. The University Theater puts on " Seargent Muskgrave ' s Dance, " a morbid anti-war drama. M A S H " and " Catch 22 " added their own comments to an overworked and still sad topic. As of November 14th, 1970, 44,004 Americans had died in Viet Nam. " Patten " and " Joe " and " Butch Cassidy and the Sun- dance Kid " are immediate hits. " Woodstock " and " Mad Dogs and Englishmen " capitalized on Rock music and special movie effects. The Youngbloods, a nationally known country-rock group, performed in the newly floored Fieldhouse. For the Homecoming concert, Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks per- formed with Leo Kottke, and Son House. Loose Gravel and the Flamin ' Groovies played for 176 Ma-ie Day at Peony Park. The era of the Indian as UNO ' s mascot ended in July, 1971. Claims had been made that the Indian mascot was discriminatory and should therefore be abolished. It was. No one seemed to have any ideas for a new mascot though. Parking was still a problem. The Ravine still was a topic of discussion. Fall, 1971 The Mavericks. A contest named UNO ' s mascot. A tuition hike had both resident and especially non-resident students groaning. Kayser Hall opened its doors to students and faculty. The Milo Bail Student Center was surrounded with construction machinery. A new addition was being built. KVNO was licensed by the Federal Communications Commis- sion. Originally, KVNO ' s call letters were to be KUNO, but a new station in Texas beat them to it. The Storz Mansion, off Dodge Street, was annexed to hold the new FM station. Steve Wild and Jim Zadina were elected to the posts of Student Government President and Vice- President respectively. January, 1972 Topless dancing in Omaha dis- appears at least for a while — and peo- ple try to find other cheap thrills. Milton White was reviewed by the University of Nebraska at Omaha Man, " and " Andromeda Strain " were all big box office smashes, even at $2.50 a throw. Violence was replacing pornography like " The Stewardesses " ; " Play Misty For Me, " " Straw Dogs, " and " Dirty Harry " brought a great deal of phony blood to the screen (at $70 a gallon!). The war in Viet Nam was winding down; that is, at least for U.S. involve- ment. The Democrats, after a lot of in- decision, nominated Senator George McGovern for President and Senator Thomas Eagleton for V.P. Columnist powers-that-be. His contract was not renewed. 1972 ' s election brought Party workers out of the woodwork. Workers for every party and every candidate could be found asking someone if he or she had registered to vote yet. " Love Story, " " 5 Easy Pieces, " " French Connection, " " Little Big The Gateway began printing classified ads, and guidelines for Teacher Evaluation Questionaires were set. Ronald W. Roskens became UNO ' s new Chancellor. Fall, 1972 Jack Anderson claimed that Eagleton had once taken electro-shock therapy for a fit of severe depression; McGovern, who once claimed that he would " Stand behind (Eagleton) one thousand per cent " , dropped him as a running mate. McGovern finally chose Sargeant Shriver as a running mate. to appear in ever-increasing quan- tities; " POW ' s Never Have A Nice Day. " Then the magic words were spoken — CEASE FIRE — and the world sat back, sighed in relief, and prayed, not quite believing, that it will work. The members of the Cease Fire Super- visory Committee were chosen, and POW ' s began to trickle back to loved ones that they hadn ' t seen for up to eight years. UNO may face a tuition increase for ' 73- ' 74. And parking is still a problem! For the Republicans, " Nixon Now — More Than Ever " became the slogan. When the battle smoke cleared, Nixon had won every state in the Union except for Massachusetts and the District of Columbia. Before the election, the Hanoi government showed signs of wanting to talk Peace. Henry Kissinger became a world figure and sex-symbol almost overnight as the world watched. Nothing came out of October ISth ' s attempt at Peace. The Prisoner of War issue became a strong election question, as did amnesty for draft evaders. POW bracelets and bumper stickers began Donna M.
