Students, armed with their trusty parking stickers, braved the reahties of cruel mathematics again this year. Three into two won ' t go. Each morning, students face the famihar ordeal of attempting to squeeze between two Volkswagons and go unnoticed by Campus Security. During the three week grace period allowed students to purchase permits, 5,695 day and night students rushed to Annex 31. Weeks after the grace period, students were still purchasing permits on a per year or semester basis. It was as if no one had told them that there were only 1,582 spaces available. While things were no better this year, at least they got a Httle worse. Construction of the new library took 337 spaces from grasping students while car pool parking is taking 65 spaces. In parking lot W, west of 66th street, 175 spaces were added, but it ' s obvious students still come up short. In order of importance, faculty lost two spaces, the staff picked up 49 and on the lower end of the social order students lost 262 spaces. All in all, faculty and staff have a third of the number of spaces students have. Since we know the campus is run as a democracy with equaHty for all, there must be five thousand faculty and staff members, or a third the number of students. Some thing went wrong somewhere. The car pool experiment, which received only a lukewarm response last year, picked up some converts this year. Over one hundred car pool permits were sold the first semester. Meanwhile, Elmwood Park and nearby residential districts continue to be camping grounds for hundreds of student cars, many with parking stickers displayed proudly on the rear window. One likely reason for this is that Elmwood Park is no farther from much of the campus than parking lot W, which is over a half mile away from the Administration Building. Solutions to the parking problem filter in, but are shot down just as quickly. Ak-Sar-Ben parking is considered unworkable by the Chancellor unless Elmwood parking is prohibited. Fat chance, respond the students. High-rise parking is retreating further into the background as being too expensive a proposition. The Gateway ' s suggestion of auction- ing parking spaces to even out student and faculty chances for good spaces never got off the ground. The ravine, as we all know, is still a ravine. by Rathy Parcher Since 1959, the Milo Bail Student Center has been the core of student activity and the only area specifically designed to meet the needs of students with nothing to do. The center became a home for the leisure stricken. For the few brave souls who venture upstairs, offices and study rooms will be found, but for most students, the center is a place to relax, talk, eat, and pass the time until the next class. The MBSC underwent restructuring in 1972, leaving a larger bookstore and less first floor space for students. Students found themselves with a coffeehouse inside and a meeting area outside the new south entrance, complete with abstract clocks that have a time all thier own. The Student Center is characterized by a social caste system of sorts, implied rather than specified. But nonetheless, the order has continued unchanged for years, with faces coming and going but the people somehow remaining the same. The Coffeehouse, in room 118, is the scene of the largest congregation of students, the mighty Greeks, who are attired in fashionably faded T-shirts with letters, numbers, or an occasional UNO stencile. The doors to the coffeehouse are in continuous motion. The doors open; the people sitting at the near tables look up to inspect the intruders. Heads down until the doors swing open again. 22 Spray-painted Greek signs hang from the black- beamed ceihng. Notices are tacked up on any available space. People exist in groups in the coffee- house; individuals are banished. Tables littered with cigarette packages and coffee cups hold at least a half dozen people in earnest conversation. There are floaters who grace several tables before finding the right spot. This continues non-stop until the coffee- house reluctantly clears at three for cleaning. The chicks in the coffeehouse wear slacks with hems. Jeans with ragged cuffs are found in the game room. The game room swells with intense young men clustered around the game tables, sometimes a dozen strong, watching motionlessly as the player ' s bulging pockets gradually empty of quarters. The only break is on the half-hour, when the tables exchange these fanatics with new ones. In an hour, they are back, hunched over the tables while an occasional female student stands by staring vaguely into space while her boyfriend gets emotionally involved with a silver ball. Both the coffeehouse and the game room experi- enced a slight surge in activity when The Pit ' s estimated 150 patrons were forced to vacate. The Pit, once the sight of red-eyed card players and students who have been at UNO since the beginning of time, was transformed into office space because of campus construction. The Pit patrons therefore either: A) dispersed to other areas of the Student Center, B) left school when the last card game ended or 23 C) joined the circus. Those who were attached by the wrists to the pinball machines followed them into the game room. But many of the patrons made the big step across the hall to the coffeehouse, where they were immediately offended by the Greek signs. Between the coffeehouse and the game room is the information desk, also known as the last place to go for information. Clustered around the desk are jostling groups of blacks, leaning in accute observation of passing girls who return the attention— maybe. Raucous laughter, good-natured put downs, coming on and getting off on the atmosphere, they begin to fade away at mid-afternoon, when students turn into people. Upstairs, the Ballroom, called Napalm Hall back in the days when we thought about napalm, is quieter. Bootstrappers reading, girls sitting in muffled conversation, the Ballroom ' s only activity occurs during speeches, panel discussions or art sales. The rest of the time, one feels guilty making the unnerving noise of footsteps, as the studious gaze at passersby on their way to the cafeteria. Ah, the cafeteria, where people of all social persuasions gather, spurned by a common lust for food. People can actually sit alone in the cafeteria without fear of being persecuted as heretics. If you try everywhere else in the Student Center and you just don ' t fit, sooner or later you will find yourself in the cafeteria, staring at a salt-covered table and trying not to smell the food. There are other gathering places. Sparsely filled study rooms line the third floor hall. The area outside the Center is, on warm days, lined with students; on cold days, it is deserted. Comfort always prevails. The bookstore, or the masked marauders, attracts people for five minute intervals. In otherwords, as long as it takes to buy a blue book or a pack of Marlboros. Uie Donut Hole 26 Dinner is Served With the appointement of Ronald Pushcar as Director of Dining Services at UNO a dramatic change in food ser- vices occurred. The cafeterias, formally named for the first time, were brightened up by the addition of posters and displays. A wider variety of food was offered to the deliglit of the cafeteria customers. Everyone, especially the employees, seemed happy with the change. 27 The Gallery Administration Room 371 is otherwise known as " The Gallery. " The Gallery houses many art shows throughout the regular school year. Some shows of the ' 74- ' 75 year were: " Witness to Our Time, " Oct. 7-25. An ex- hibit of work by the photo-journalist Alfred Eisenstaedt, a Life Magazine photographer for more than 30 years. Lithographs from Landfill Press, Febr. 10-28. Student Art Show (Juried), March 31- April 18. VNO 2§»tucleiits If you are a male, a Nebraska resident, attending school part-time, 24 years old, and a graduate of an Omaha public high school then you are the " average " UNO student. An average age of 22 for UNO students, even full-time, is indicative of a working stu- dent body. About 47 per cent of UNO stu- dents were carrying a class load of 12 or more hours which is the University ' s defini- tion of full-time students. The average age of 22 makes the UNO student older than the national average for college students. Males far out numbered females in the UNO enrollment. Fifty-nine per cent of the student body were males. The above statistics were compiled from the record enrollment of 14,123 students for the fall 1974 semester. Faculty Awards University of Nebraska at Omaha faculty and staff with many years ser- vice to the University were honored during an awards ceremony September 30, 1974, in the Student Center Ball- room. UNO Chancellor Ronald W. Roskens presented awards to individual employ- ees who, as of June 30, 1974, had marked the 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, and 25th year at the University. Awards and the approximate number of employees to receive each: five years, University seal key chain, 180 employ- ees: 10 years, engraved desk pen, 70 employees; 15 years, engraved book ends, 20 employees; 20 years, engraved desk clock, 13 employees; and 25 years, engraved wrist watch,, 13 employees. Seven persons who had recently re- tired from the University following at least ten years service each received an engraved plaque. Ode to Orientatioit Some things are much better left to our imaginations, Chinese torture, electric chairs, student orientation. Clearly I can still recall the experience in full, Inflation or not, a seven buck fee bought a lot of bull. The leader in command that day; the finest to be found, Would ' ve been a Httle finer had he ever been around. Up from my chair I sought him out to ask a sole request, ' Upon which route do I embark to find a can the best? Mr. Ulmer tell me please, don ' t you turn your back on me, Neglect at such a time as this might mean a sight to see. Mr. Ulmer, one more fime, where is the men ' s room please? His answer came with nod and shrug, " Sit down and cross your knees. " 39 Registration Along with taxes and death, closed classes and long lines at registration are the only things life guarantees a UNO student. Although early registration is offered for those students currently enrolled at UNO and inter-campus students, this is no guarantee all of a student ' s classes will be open. Even as a student accumulates hours and earns the privilege of registering earlier, closed classes still have to be dealt with. Those students who wait until regular registration really have headaches. New and transfer students are required to attend regular registration. Registration is held in the MBSC Ballroom in an effort to streamline the process. Students progress from station to station to complete registration. 40 The Trials and Tribulations of S»tucleut Goverumeut After the record March 1974 student Presidential election turnout, represent- ing 23 per cent of the student body, things seemed to go downhiU for stu- dent government credibility. The elec- tion for President and Vice-President re- mained in limbo into the summer. The initial winners, Greg Blodig and Marsha Babcock, were accused of unfair cam- paign practices. The Blodig ticket was disqualified by the Student Court and a second election was held. The ad- ministration took over then and Chan- cellor Roskens ordered the election re- sults impounded. The Court took con- trol of matters again and the case was closed in July, with Jim Sherrets as Pres- ident and Rhoda Andrews as Vice- President. A little over six weeks into the fall semester, Andrews resigned, stating difficulties in dealing with the contro- versial Sherrets as her reason. Kathy Stockham was approved by the Senate as her replacement. During the same period. Cliff Vogt resigned as Academic Resources Center director and election commissioner Don Jones was fired by Sherrets. The November election turnout was an indication of student reaction to the unstable state of student government. Although the figures were not relased, it was estimated that a meager three per cent of the student body bothered to vote in the Senate elections, the lowest percentage ever recorded. The result put former VP. Andrews in a Graduate College senate seat. Rich Hood presided as a speaker of the senate, and Colleen Gregory served as treasurer. The 74-75 school year brought many problems and quarrels to the senate floor and to the offices of the president and the student court. Presi- dent Jim Sherrets came under verbal at- tack on various occasions, resulting in fierce replys from the frenetic, but ar- ticulate debater. The senate during the period from June, 1974, until the beginning of the spring semester, passed a surprisingly low number of resolu- tions-seventeen. After the slow start, the senate considered resolutions involv- ing parking, condemnation of public officials for various actions concerning UNO students, increasing nubmer of or- ganizations and decreasing funds, and the regular month-to-month proposals that crop up. The student court, with Chief Justice Allen Ziebarth, bounced back from its setback in the summer to run a steady, if unspectacular, course through the year. 42 There was good news for UNO stu- dents. The Nebraska electorate ap- proved by a narrow margin an amend- ment allowing the presidents of UNO, UNL, and the UN Medical Center stu- dent bodies to sit in as non-voting mem- bers of the board of regents. Budgetary allotments, including the transfer of student-controlled funds to administrative-controlled funds, the parking quagmire, and administration- student relations, as usual, were the major topics of discussion and action for student goverrmient. And while the confidence and interest in student gov ernment may have slackened among students during the school year, they still looked to elected leaders to help alleviate the constant problems and hassles students face every day of cam- pus life.

The high caliber of films offered contributed to the series ' success. Examples of the films offered are: " Clockwork Orange, " " Paper chase, " and " Bananas. " Two of the year ' s biggest movies were " Last Tango in Paris " and " Fritz the Cat. " ACADEMIC RESOURCES CENTER Aeademie Resources Center Pornography-everyone ' s favorite subject-is being offered to UNO student free. Would you believe the Art of Pornography? This of course, offered by Free University, isn ' t as risque as it sounds. The purpose of the course is to define the meaning of pornography in these times of changing moral stand- ards. Sponsored by Student Government ' s Academic Resources Center (ARC), Free University has an immense and colorful range of courses. Most intri- guing are " Running a Bar, " " Magic and Witchcraft, ' ' and " Woman, Who Am I? " ARC isn ' t only concerned with frivol- ity, however. More serious facets of the Center are teacher evaluations compiled and published each year by the ARC office and test files. This year the possi- bility of on-campus banking was ex- plored by ARC Director Ally Milder. 51 Womeu s Resource Center I AM A WOMAN GIVING BIRTH TO MYSELF • LOVE IS )YERPOPI E If Ci WAI Plan X... Perhaps one of the most interesting, unique, and useful organizations UNO offers is the Women ' s Resource Center. One reason for the organization ' s uniqueness is the group ' s administration. Rather than being run by any single individual, it is under the general super- vision of a group. This method is highly successful for the group because it per- mits a great deal of flexibility needed for the varied services offered. Against discrimination of any kind, the Center provides help for anyone needing it. Self health examinations, lec- tures, and referral services are offered. Pamphlets and books on just about any subject are available. Among well- know n titles are " The Feminine Mystique, " " Single Parent Experience, " and " The Female Experience.

" This is a golden opportunity to visit stu- dents, " said Dean, " I want to share my bad judgements and mistakes with the public. " " I feel a little awkward speaking about Watergate, " commented Dean, as he spoke of his personal aspects of the Watergate experience. Dean views Watergate as being one of best ex- periences in respect to his changing perceptions of government. It has also been one of the worst experiences that has happened to him, the worst being family grief, jail, and disgrace. The lecture ended with a question and answer period. Dean ' s Omaha appearance came close to the end of his six week tour, although several other colleges were willing to pay him up to $5,000 to appear. Throughout his tour. Dean talked to approximately 100,000 people. Innes March 3 was the date and the MBSC ballroom was the scene for a debate between Dr. William Shockley and Roy Innes on the topic " Is There A Superior Race? " Both are nationally known figures who hold differing viewpoints on the subject of racial equality. Dr. Shockley, a Nobel prize winner and Stanford University professor, has caused much controversy in recent years because of his belief blacks are genetically inferior to whites with regard to intelligence. Reared in Harlem, N.Y., Mr. Innes is a differing viewpoint. An active leader in the Congress of Racial Equality, he currently serves as director of that organization. Homeeomin A 20th anniversary reunion of members of UNO ' s undefeated 1954 football team highlighted alumni Homecoming activities October 11 and 12. The 1954 team went to the Tangerine Bowl in Orlando, Florida and defeated Eastern Kentucky State 7-6. Before the UNO-Ferris State College football game Oct. 12, free music, balloons, coffee, and hot dogs greeted those outside the campus stadium. During half-time cere- monies commerative mementos were given to three alumni honoring them for their services to the University and the Alumni Association. Marsha Babcock and Larry Michael were crowned 1974 Homecoming royalty. They were elected by the student body in elections held Oct. 10 and 1 1. Janatha Whitmore was elected 1974 BLAC Homecoming Queen and Fred Spigner, King. 61 62 Slupentatural v§ ympO!sium Vampires and psychic phenomena were the topics of the three day symposium on the supernatural sponsored by the Student Program Organization, Sept. 23-25. Guests included Eve Weir, a telepathic and clairvoyant, and Nan Pulsifer, a student of psychic phenomena. Climaxing the sympsoium was the presentation of Dr. Raymond T. McNally, a Boston College professor who is an authority on vampires and folklore. Clothed in Dracula attire. Dr. McNally was brought on stage in a coffin, where he showed Dracula films and discussed a historical overview of terror. Although they were 45 minutes late, Sly and the Family Stone did show up for UNO ' s Homecoming concert October 1 1 at the Civic Auditorium. The 50 minute appear- ance by Sly proved to be " one worth waiting for " according to the many fans who said " he was sensational. " But then again, many people were upset with the groups ' too short performance, labehng the evening " a waste of time and money. " Taking into account Sly ' s credibility for making concert appearances, UNO students should feel privileged he even showed up. Drieh Von Danikeu Is it true that the earth was visited in ancient times by astronauts? And that one of these astronauts is the God that many of us worship? Erich Von Daniken, author of three best selling books supporting these beliefs, came to the UNO campus on November 18 to share his thesis with students. With a colorful hfe history himself, Von Daniken sees recorded history extremely different than many scientists. He believes man to be the product of the mating of monkey and astronaut. Religion was born in order to have a record of part of man ' s parentage. Von Daniken ' s books include CHARIOTS OF THE GODS, GODS FROM OUTER SPACE and GOLD OF THE GODS. J lutemational Fair Featuring handcraft goods from countries such as Greece, Morocco, Japan, India, Thailand, Guatemala, Tanzania, and Kenya, the second annual International Fair was held November 25 and 26. Sponsored by the UNO International Students Organization, the fair featured goods made by refugees from all over the world. The items sold included wood carvings, jewelry, blankets, Christmas ornaments, and belts. Romuey November 14 marked the Omaha appearance of George Romney, a former Cabinet member and Presi- dential candidate. Romney is also a former Secretary of the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Mr. Romney was the first speaker in the 1974 Distinguished Lecture-Discussion series sponsored by UNO. In this series, management personnel is given the opportunity to discuss timely topics with nation- ally and internationally-known leaders in their fields. ABC Series The ABC Series (Academy, Business, Community) was initiated December 20 by author James A. Michener at a 7:30 a.m. breakfast. Open to the public, the ABC Series is designed for students, business people, pro- fessionals and area residents interested in learning more about the current issues in our society today. Other speakers in the series were: Harold W. Andersen, Feb. 21, and Gen. David C. Jones, April 15. Ak ' Sar-Ben Ivuuelteoit In a program which began in 1960, worthy students have been awarded $250 yearly scholarships by Ak-Sar-Ben. The original 16 grants were increased by 16 each year until the present total of 64 was reached. The annual Ak-Sar-Ben Luncheon honoring the 64 recipients of the scholarships was held November 18. Vice Chancellor Ronald Beer, Provost Herbert Garfinkel, Ak-Sar- Ben King Nick Newberry and stu- dent Marlene Fuller addressed the luncheon. Politieal Symposium Candidates for state attorney general, as well as Douglas County Democratic and Republican Party chairpersons were participants in a Symposium on Politics Oct. 28-30, sponsored by SPO. On Wednesday, Oct. 30, U.S. Rep. John Y. McCollister and his Democratic challenger Dan Lynch met in a debate moder- ated by Jeff Jordan, KMTV chief anchorman and public affairs director. GSA Christmas Party Highlighted by the appearance of Mayor Edward Zorinsky as Santa Claus, the Graduate Student Association Christmas party for over 150 children and elderly was an over- whelming success. Held December 20 in the MBSC Ballroom, children from St. James and oldsters from the Douglas County Home received gaily wrapped Christmas presents, participated in the singing of carols, and enjoyed refreshments. Melba Rounds, who also performs under the name of Pamela Polland, appeared at the UNO Coffeehouse December 9-11. Miss Rounds turns to ancient blues songs off 78 RPM records for her material. Victor Marchetti " The CIA: Has It Gone Too Far? " was the topic of a talk by 14 year CIA agent Victor Marchetti on February 12. Marchetti is the author of THE CIA-CULT OF INTELLIGENCE. LA C.A.U.S.A. Benefit Concert 83 Big Baud Jazz ' . .fiL. - An evening of " Big Band Jazz " was presented by the University of Nebraska at Omaha Jazz Ensemble on Wednesday, November 27 in the MBSC Ballroom. The performance featured original composi- tions such as " Dolphin Dance " by John Kirsch, a member of the Ensemble, as well as popular tunes such as Maynard Ferguson ' s " MacArthur Park.

Royal Sihakeispeare Company 92 A total of three American cities were privileged to be toured by the world- famous Royal Shakespeare Company early this spring and Omaha was one of them. Dean Birdman of the School of Fine Arts was primarily responsible for the Company ' s Omaha visit. Not only did the Company present several excellent performances, among them " King Lear, " but a series of in- formative workshops and seminars as well. Instead of being presented in the University Theater as is customary at UNO, the productions were presented in the Performing Arts Auditorium. 93 94 Commeueemeut Mid-Year commencement speaker James A. Michener related " Three Moral Stories ' " to the 93 graduate candidates and 632 undergraduate candidates. After relating his tales, Michener was presented a Doctor of Letters honorary degree.

Looking for directions to the orientation office, I run into a pretty coed. 7:40 AJVI. As I entered tlie bookstore I received intense amounts of pain (see photo) in the form of a " goom-bah " (football players know the term well.) 7:36 A.M. After running into the pretty coed, an elevator door tried to bite me. I told it I was just a freshman, to which it replied, " What ' s your major? " I bit my lip ' till it hurt. 7:45 As you know, all bestselling textbooks are kept on the top shelf. I had the misfortune of standing on a flimsy stack of George Wallace ' s GUIDE TO MODERN TAP DANCING. You can see the resuU. A security officer " goom-bahed " me for making a scene. I bit my lip to relieve the pain. 100 7:47 I found a darling book of poetry by Studs Terkel. . .at those great bookstore prices!! 8:00 A.M. Here I am explaining the meaning of life, based on the writing of Bertrand Russell, Jacqueline Susann, and Woody Allen to a couple of starry-eyed coeds. They were obviously impressed until a gust of wind blew me over. I bit my lib on the way down. 101 8:20 Now back into MBSC for a hamburger. They saw these microwave ovens are a won- der-well its true. It turned my hamburger in- to a cookie. 8:15 I decided to reflect on life alone until I realized a large canine had reflected in the same place. I was naturally upset and screamed " doo-doo! " Campus security again " goom-bahed " me. I bit my lip. 104 105 -1 Pauhellenic Council Coordination of the five national so- rorities on the UNO campus in activities is the main purpose of the Panhellenic Council. The Council attempts to plan a formal program for college women to join a national sorority and to promote an understanding among the five sororities.
