The majority of college students to- day will eventually reach the ' ' over 65 " place, a destiny where 21 million Ameri- cans are right now. The needs and potentials of this age group are placing increasing demands on families and social institutions. Weil-trained professional and tech- nical personnel are needed to assist this older generation in coping with their changing role and situation. Gerontology specialists also function to harness the great reservoir of talent, insight, and information which our senior citizens possess. The Gerontology Program was created in 1972 to carry out the Univer- sity ' s commitment to improve the quality of life of Nebraska ' s over 65 group. Administratively housed within the Col- lege of Public Affairs and Community Service, the program works with numerous departments and colleges to develop training, research, and com- munity service programs. UNO English instructor Doug Reiger conducts a Writer ' s Workshop for Se nior Citizens at New Cassei Retirement Center, (below) A variety of other workshops and activities are set up around the city in conjunction with the Gerontology pro- gram, ranging from money management to bingo. ' focusing on urban problems " Responding to the challenge of con- temporary urban society through. ..the Center for Applied Urban Research. One of the research arms of the Col- lege of Public Affairs and Community Service, the Center for Applied Urban Research is a visible manifestation of the University ' s effort to meet the chal- lenge of urban society in the 70 ' s. The center ' s responsibility is to conduct inter- disciplinary research focusing on urban problems. Projects and programs currently underway range from providing back- ground material on current problems of local interest to completing detailed studies. Areas under analyses include taxation, employment, and housing. CAUR ' s staff has been recruited with diversity in mind. Specialized back- grounds of the staff include urban fi- nance, housing, health economics, quantitative methods, public adminis- tration, computer graphics, urban geog- raphy and demography. Due to the center ' s competence in a variety of areas technical assistance can be pro- vided to community leaders, city and regional planners, and numerous urban agencies. 26 Responding to the challenge of con- temporary urban society through... Cooperative Education. The classroom is not the only place where students learn at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Practical on-the- job experience with successful profes- sionals in the student ' s chosen field is provided through the Cooperative Educa- tion program. With the belief that " Experience is Still the Great Teacher, " the College of Public Affairs and Community Service offers the Co-op program as a supple- ment to classroom instruction and as a flexible link between theory and practice. The program seeks to enhance the stu- dent ' s responsibility and made their education more comprehensive and relevant through an exposure to com- munity laboratories, offices, industries, businesses and the professionals who maintain them. These real settings give participating students the opportunity to apply and test their techniques, knowledge and theories learned in the classroom. The student can work toward developing as a professional and in exploring areas where personal and professional growth are needed. The eventual transition to an occupational field after graduation should be a much smoother one as a result of participation in the program. Cooperative Education is helping to make UNO " a part of not apart from " Omaha and the surrounding community. Students currently involved in co-op education show great diversity in areas of interest. Represented here are students cur- rently employed by the Health Planning Council of the Midlands, North Omaha Development Corp., Douglas County Children ' s Center, Chicano Awareness Center, and the Woodson Center. 29 Special thanks to members of D.A.R.E., (Drug, Alcohol, Rehabilitation and Education) Nebraska Men ' s Reformatory for their cooperation. UNO students working with the group are Marie Prusa and Ethel Landrum. prevention rather than control Responding to the challenge of con- temporary urban society through... Criminal Justice. Careers in law enforcement areas and in fields of correctional service are of- fered through the Criminal Justice degree program in the College of Public Affairs and Community Service. An inter- disciplinary approach is followed using courses from sociology , psychology and political science as they relate to law enforcement and correctional administra- tion. The UNO Criminal Justice program is one of five in the nation to receive a Law Enforcement Assistance Administra- tion grant for the purpose of develop- ing a comprehensive graduate program in criminal justice. The Criminal Justice program is grounded on the perspective that the job of the police officer is much broader than preventing crime and catching law violators. The police officer ' s role is one of service-helping people in the community regardless of their problem. To be effective, the officer needs a broad, basic understanding of human nature and of the origin of those prob- lems which lead to criminal behavior. Criminal justice is increasingly being defined with a greater emphasis on crime causation and prevention rather than exclusively crime control. -,.. „■ working to breakdown stereotypes ' Responding to the challenge of con- temporary urban society through... Special Veterans Talent Search Project. The Special Veterans Project is geared to serving the disadvantaged, un- employed or underemployed veteran who seeks an education beyond high school. With almost a million G.l. ' s leaving the service each year there is a real de- mand for counseling and referral pro- grams to assist ex-servicemen in vo- cational and educational areas. By lo- cating veterans the University aids both the men and the community. Through the Veterans ' Project the Division of Training and Community Service is work- ing to break down stereotypes and myths about educational institutions by taking a personal approach in handling the vets ' needs. 31 32 Parking at UNO is: A. A mafia scheme to make $93,000 off parking Stickers. B. A student subsidy to area towing companies. C Administration ' s answer to overcrowded classes. D. A joke. The McClurg Incentive Plan;25 tickets written wins a free game. 35 UNO students bought 8,600 parking stickers this year, there ' s only ap- proxirnateiy one quarter that many parking stalls. Stickers can be purchased on either a per semester basis or for the year. The not-so-great " Great Car Pool " resulted in the sale of only five stickers 3t the bargain price of $3.50, reserve spaces compliments of Campus Secur- ity. Solutions to the commuter campus parking problems are still in the " arm- chairing " phase. Proposals range from " a pie-in-the-sky " multi-level parking facility to " Hang Mrs. Gallagher, Grab the Revine " . Hopefully, a $10,000 study by the Leo A. Daly Co. will mean a $10,000 decline in parking fines. 36 This individual is wanted by UNO Campus Security. He is armed with a ' 58 Chevy and to be considered dangerous.

However, as in the past, we all continue to experience long lines and closed classes. Although registration has been moved from the crov ded administration build- ing to the student center, it still doesn ' t eliminate the number of students want- ing and not getting certain classes. For those who do not feel the need to register during early registration, they are allowed to fight the crowds at a later date. The only problem is if classes aren ' t closed by the end of early registration, the odds are good they will be at the later date. 3! 39 lilt. ■Ifmiillliiiiiiiir SSSUSi BuiBueqo SjiqM noA sjiBi uad 3|g jno •aA8- {DB|q euo uibB sum Z asoi euii uj ino m m X o UJ uu .— - o rri IM CM CNJ I— -1 _l — 1 _i UJ u.

As a result, many students have had to answer a lot of questions for themselves. Those involved in the program de- cided against the huge convocation type of orientation sessions in favor of small groups where students get a chance to meet other students. The new student spends 2 days in the orientation sessions. During this time, he gets to know the school and something about academic standards. Student guides try to share their know- ledge about the campus. The orienta- tion program is financed by a $7 fee as- sessed each student who takes part in the program. Homecoming activities kicked-off at noon with a Watermelon Bust sponsored by Lambda Chi Alpha. Events included watermelon eating, throwing, and head butting. An ail school pep rally followed in the Pep Bowl. Homecoming ' 73 was a display of tradition and the new spirit of the University. UNO ' s Alumni Association took a leading role in the festivities sponsoring a large dinner and evening activities under a big tent in the Rosenblatt Stadium parking lot. Laura Haveika and Willie Bob John- son were selected as Homecoming Royalty in the school wide election. Carrie Triplett was chosen as the 1973 8LAC Homecoming Queen. 44 Ak-Sar-Ben Luncheon Since 1960 Ak-Sar-Ben has aided scholastically worthy, but financially needy students in obtaining a college education. In appreciation of the $250 scholar- ships awarded Omaha public and parochial high school graduates, UNO sponsors the luncheon on behalf of Ak-Sar-Ben and the recipients. Journalism Awards Banquet The student chapter of Sigma Delta Chi and the UNO journalism depart- ment co-sponsored the annual University of Nebraska at Omaha journalism awards banquet, December 8. Ralph Otwell, national Sigma Delta Chi president and managing editor of the Chicago Sun Times, appeared speak- ing on " Beyond Watergate— Government and the Press " . UNO students Larry King and Gary Williams are this year ' s recipients of spec- ial awards for work in journalism while attending UNO. 51 Their act is quite unique and their style is a cross between a rock perform- ance and the theater— they are Lemmings. The UNO SPO board helped to pub- licize the National Lampoon Lemmings ' group performing at the Civic Auditor- ium Music Hall on November 30. The group mocks the entire youth movement and also digs the current polit- ical leaders. Members of the cast satirize such people as Bob Dylan, Joe Crocker, . and Joan Baez. Lemmings Black Panther Party leader Bobby Seale addressing over 800 students at UNO on November 16, began by stating the current aims of the Panthers differ little from those iniated in 1967 by Huey Newton and himself. An advocate of working within the system Seaie says, " those who think they can drop out of the system should try dropping out of the universe " . Looking very much " establishment " Seale explained his tie and shirt as " mere organizing tactics " . Hopeful a revolution will take place in the United States Seale says, " the U.S. suffers from over- development, rather than underdevelop- ment. " 56 Homosexual Symposium Homosexuality, the first topic in a series of UNO symposiums aroused a lot of interest and raised a few eyebrows. The Student Programming Organi- zation sponsoring the event used no university or student funds to support the symposium. The backing thrust :ame from keynote speaker Rev. Troy ' erry, founder of the Metropolitan Community Church of Los Angeles, and area psychologists, psychiatrists, and -elated professionals. Although at times discussions strayed to true confessions, symposium goers got the straight facts on the homo- sexual scene. 58 Paul Soldner Paul Soldner, professor of ceramics at Scripps College and Claremont Grad- uate School in California, appeared at UNO to demonstrate his skill in the art of Raku. Raku, the process of turning clay into an art was developed by Japanese potters. Large crowds attended the work- shops held by the ceramist. The art in- volves the process of forming irregular and surface colors on the pottery, bring- ing out the earthy colors. 59 60 Twenty to thirty students provide the manpower for the campus tele- vision station, KYIME, and the FIVI radio station KVNO. These stations broadcast in the MBSC approximately 20 hours each week. KYNE and KVNO are instrumental stations, or TV classrooms, providing instruction for all educational levels. Daytime broadcasting is KYNE ' s team approach for teaching the elementary grades. Evening broadcasts provide pro- gramming for the general public, and persons wishing to finish up their high school education at home. The learning experience provided by the stations is not confined to the audience. Broadcasting majors involved with KYNE and KVNO learn by the " do and sometimes die " method. you re on 4 (above right) KYNE station director Rich Mayfield conducts a tour for a local Brownie troop.

Throughout the day, a video-tape showing incidents at Wounded Knee and Peace 62 Women ' s Resource Center With a " drop-in for a cup of cof- fee " policy the Women ' s Resource Cen- ter has something to offer every stu- dent, even if they wear jockey shorts. Less than a year old the office lo- cated on the third floor of the Stu- dent Center is primarily a counseling center. UIMO student Sandy Baxter is in charge of the center which provides information ranging from birth control to discriminatory employment prac- tices. The office also has a variety of reference books, files, and federal pam- phlets available to students and the public. The center acts as coordinator for female encounter sessions currently in- volving about 150 women, and the spring Feminist Symposium. Helping Sandy launch the counsel- ing center are Margarita Duesk, from Planned Parenthood, and Donna Mc- Cunn, a graduate assistant in psycho- logy. Although no men are currently working in the center a secretarial po- sition could open for the right guy, especially if he ' s got great legs. 64 a symposium The smouldering bra of the late sixties has ignited the feminist move- ment of the seventies. With determina- tion to regain lost power and not to remain second-class citizens feminists are steadily breaking dovjn the bar- riers in " a man ' s world " . Symposiums, such as the " Emerg- ing Woman " held at UNO in late February show the strength and in- volvement behind the movement. Top- ics ranging from " Feminist Politics " to " the Feminist Husband " achieved the purpose of the symposium— to in- crease awareness. Prominent speakers featured at the event included; U.S. Senate Candidate Jean Westwood, Texas gubernatorial candidate Sissy Farenthold, and writer- psychiatrist Hoagy Wycoff. The symposium was made possible through the cooperative effort of SPO ' s Gary Eilts and the Women ' s Resource Center. into Blackness Politics to gospel covers the scope of the African-American Heritage series presented by B.L.A.C. and S.P.O. With most programs free to the public many UNO students as well as the Omaha community took advantage of the op- portunity. Performing February 11, Faith Temple Choir opened the series singing elevating gospel. With a hard act to follow Jazz artist Kenny Burrel con- ducted a jazz workshop and pulled off an exciting evening concert. Speakers of national and local prom- inence participated in the Heritage ser- ies. Dr. Charles Hurst, former president of Malcolm X College, Sen. Ernest Chambers, and " Miss Black America " , Arnice Russel. Speech topics included politics, law, and the Black woman. Aside from reciting original poetry Arnice Russel dis- cussed the sociological, cultural, and psychological conditions of being black. 68 i a step beyond soul The Hayden Dance Troupe ate Students Grad Assistant Dave Lightbody explains how cyclones get started. Dr. Elton S. Carter, Dean of the Graduate College, recently summed up characteristics distinguishing the grad- uate programs from their undergraduate counterparts. Carter said, " The graduate program is more individualized, higher level, rela- tively more independent, more special- ized, and generally more theoretical. It is also more select. Only one-fourth to one-fifth of all earning bachelor de- grees go on to receive a master. " Figures back up Dr. Carter. More than 13,500 students attend UNO, only 1,900 are graduate students. According to Dr. Carter teachers from Omaha area grade schools and high schools are the majority of those working towards a master ' s degree. They attend school on a part-time basis, punching out their degrees one or two courses at a time. Those graduate students remaining (the ones the undergrads see on campus during the day) represent a small per- centage of total enrollment. Graduate students come to UNO from a variety of backgrounds, with a variety of goals. They undertake rigorous aca- demic programs. Why , is their secret, unless they decide to share it. Dave Lightbody, 27, is a first- semester graduate student majoring in geography. A native of Omaha, he at- tended classes at UNO for a or so, but became " fed up with school " . Dropping out in 1966, he joined the Marines a year later. Stationed in Oki- nawa, Dave picked up some teaching experience as an electronics instructor. Leaving the service, vacationing in California and a hitch back to Omaha preceded marriage and the completion of a bachelor ' s degree for Dave. Dave is an easy-going sort of guy, soft-spoken, but not shy— and not re- luctant to talk about his pursuit of an advanced degree in geography. He ex- pects to spend the next couple of years on the college campus as a graduate student. The degree he hopes will allow him to teach on the college level, work for the Civil Service, or even find a job in private business. Dave says, he thinks constantly about eventual employment and isn ' t optimistic about the market for people with degrees. In addition to graduate courses, Dave spends approximately 20 hours per week as a graduate assistant, receiving $280 a month for his efforts. 70 While Dave Lightbody works on his master ' s in geography, 24-year-old Tom Grahek is looking towards an advanced history degree. A native Omahan, Tom graduated in 1973 with a Bachelor of Science de- gree in law enforcement from UNO. Job hunting last summer was unsuccessful, so he wasted no time in taking up grad- uate work in history last fall. Some may wonder how it happens a law enforcement major turns to history for graduate work. A healthy interest in history is the simplest answer. Tom has found graduate work de- manding. He observes, " tests are harder than at the undergraduate level " . Ex- pecting to finish work on his advanced degree in one to two years, he attends classes and works part-time as a watch- man. History professor Dr. Bill Pratt with Tom Grahek. comparing notes Deciding on a career in social work Wayne Smithberg is going for his mast- er ' s. After graduating in 1970 with a bachelor ' s in psychology from UNO, Wayne worked for the Douglas County Welfare Services. Working as a counse- lor he felt dissatisfied and wanted to be a psychotherapist. But, Smithberg ex- plains, " training in psychology takes a long time, the quickest road was in social work " . Wayne sees the difference between graduate and undergraduate work in terms of the student-faculty relation- ship. " At the grad level there is a close- ness between student and instructor. " Currently Wayne works at the Nebras- ka Psychiatric Institute as a therapist. The experience is worth four credit hours per semester, which Wayne pays for, receiving no reimbursement from NPI. Although it is difficult to sum up the feeling of most grad students Wayne Smithberg perhaps comes the closest: " At this point in my life I ' m more goal oriented, facing my future profes- sion. I ' m more serious about what I ' m doing. I saw what I needed to have in life, and I ' m here to get it. " 71 The expanding future of UNO The University of Nebraska at Omaha has grown considerably since l nown as the University of Omaha. Attend- ance reached 13,600 in the 1973-74 academic year, compared to a student body of 8,000 less than 10 years ago in the premerger days. UNO planners have been doing their best to keep up with the increasing en- rollment. Since the UNO-UNL merger three new buildings have been added, and two existing buildings expanded. Although most campuses are pre- dicting a leveling off or decline in en- rollment UNO is estimating continued growth at 2% to 3% annually. Present UNO intentions are to expand westward in accordance with the campus plan authored by the architectural firm of Caudill, Rowlett and Scott in 1971. The plan is based upon a projected enroll- ment of 20,000. When completed, the campus will extend to 69th Street on the west and to Howard Street on the south. Park- ing space will be provided for 7,600 cars. 72 Four new buildings will be erected on the land west of the present cam- pus, including a new 5.1 million dollar library, and three new classroom build- ings. Two large parking lots will also be located on the western edge of campus. To facilitate the plans for expansion westward the University embarked on an aggressive land acquisition program in 1970. In November of that year, UNO purchased the Storz mansion for $190,000. Temporarily the mansion houses a variety of university offices, as well as campus radio station KVNO. Since then, UNO has acquired six additional pieces of property at a total cost of $1,143,500, using the other existing buildings as temporary struc- tures. Many suggest the University is paying too much for the acquired pro- perty, but Dr. Rex Engebretson, cam- pus planning director, doesn ' t think so. He points out the properties are quite large and the area attractive. Computing the cost on a per square foot basis Dr. Engebretson say, " it is actually quite reasonable. " (above) Finished design of office-classroom building under construction east of the Gene Eppley Library. UNO will continue to buy property as the legislature provides the money. This year Governor James J. Exon has recommended $280,000 be provided for land acquisition by the University. Meanwhile the face of the inner cam- pus is being altered as well. With Kaiser Hall and the Performing Arts Center completed recently, construction is now underway on a 3.7 million dollar class- room office building to be located di- rectly east of the Gene Eppley Library. The new building will feature a revolu- tionary lecture hall on the lower floor which will be the first of its kind in the Midwest. The 388-seat hall will have " teaching Stations " on electrically pow- ered turntables which rotate individual- ly. The building is expected to be ready for occupancy December 1974. The football stadium was the site of major improvements this year. Early in November installation of the astroturf was complete, and in February over- head lights were added. Expansion of seating in the stadium is being con- sidered, but no specific proposals have been made. South of the fieldhouse plans are being made for the eventual construc- tion of a new physical education build- ing at a cost of 6 million. The proposed structure would include a svi imming pool. UNO at the present time is the only state campus without a pool. Many University of Omaha grad- uates in the fifties come back to the campus and have difficulty recognizing it. Considerable change has taken place. Years from now this year ' s graduates returning to campus will find it just as hard to recognize. 73 ' ' Twelfth Night " CAST Count Orsino Fred Vesper Lady Olivia Marianne Young Feste Lynn Broderick Viola Jean Guinan Sebastian Kim Stevens Antonio Donald Hill Sea Captain Donald Hill Ladies in Waiting Emilia Kielak Suzy Wurtz Peggy Slater Maria Jo Gaughan Malvolio Jim Fitzpatrick Sir Toby Dennis Brown Sir Andrew Doug Young Orsino ' s Court Tom Arnold Charles Clowers Mike Friesz Director Fred Vesper Costumes Chris Vesper Sets Robert Welk ' Constant Wife " W.

' s Friday ' s tap beer is twenty cents from 2 p.m. till closing, and a top group or single is standard. Heading yourself east you can be sure of a great time down at the Old Market. Farquhar ' s offers students a mid-week break with " Penny Beer Night " Wednesdays between 8 and 9. Customers with sharp reflexes can try to tilt the pinball machines. However, live entertainment is provided by well- known bands as " The Shadows of Night " , " Hound-dog Taylor " , and Grammy winning " Muddy Waters " if you don ' t feel like the Pinball Wizard. 84 Wednesday is " Penny Beer Night The Firehouse for a happy time See some of UNO ' s most talented actors and ac tresses at the Firehouse Dinner Theater in the Old Market. Work a Saturday matinee or a Sunday evening performance into your schedule and take advantage of the special student discount. Five dollars pays for a super buffet-style dinner and some of the best theater in town. After the show it ' s time to adjourn to the Wine Cellar for wine and cheese and a unique atmosphere. If you ' re strictly a Velvetta and Ripple connois- seur pass by the Cellar, your discrimina- tion won ' t be appreciated. 87 ortino ' s ' ' now that ' sa Italian If the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie it ' s time to head on over and meet the gang at Sortino ' s. With prices even a student after tuition can afford, Sortino ' s has large tables to accomo- date student groups. ' two dollars please " Whether the devil makes you do it or not, UNO students continue to make the movie scene. With over 30 theaters, some multi-cinema, the Omaha area cinema centers have something for the discriminating viewer and the not so dis- criminating (try the Pussycat). Even with student discounts at the Six West and Park 4, or the Twilight Hour rates between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. at most theaters; you ' re still going to have to pay $3.00 if you want to see " The Exorcist " this year. BEDFORD IN 89 I Commuter campus is another way of saying, " Sorry fo!i s no dorms or Greek houses on this campus " . Since Ui iO has no student housing, finding a place is a do-it-yourself project for most stu- dents. Although the University provides s Housing Office, manned by Dave }ody, very few students take advantage )f the service. The Housing Office main- ains file listings of Omaha people who ire willing to lease apartments, rooms, )r houses to UNO students. Despite the sometimes frustrating ;xperience of finding a place to live, Tiost students are resourceful enough ;o find something other than school marking lots, (which are already over- ;rowded) Apartments on or near Dodge Street from the downtown area west to 72nd street appear particularly attractive to students who ' d rather bus-it than fight it. The closest thing to a dorm-like arrangement in this area is the 130 room complex located at the Prom Townhouse. Prices at the complex range from. $70 if you like a roommate to a $110 for those who prefer to study. Most of the rooms have refrigerators, and the University has provided the students with a kitchen costing $1,840. Most of the over 100 students living there like the freedom and friendly atmosphere. anywhere you can find 90 i I If the student is mobile or has a thumb with a knack for hitching, hous- ing possibilities are only as limited as the mind. Construction trailers, house- boats, and camping vans have all served the purpose in the past. One UNO student has an over the " Gallery " apartment down in the Old Market area, (below) Another UNO coed lives in a castle type structure on South 28th which is long on character. She says, " it ' s on the fashionable East Side. " (left) a place to stay. 91 The combination of a job and housing facilities is always a possibility. Many stories can be told about the college student w ho attends classes by day and rooms with a ghost by night at the local mortuary. A number of UNO students currently attending the University have jobs at Boys Town and housing is a job benefit, (below) A few coeds function as live- in baby sitters to campus area residents, but finding a quiet place to study can be another problem. Some students attend another institu- tion while taking classes at UNO. One example are nursing students from the Nebraska Methodist Educational Cen- ter. Housing at the center is very simi- lar to the college dorm, (above) 92 Most students either buddy-up or go it alone and fall into some satis- factory situation. The others who either can not or will not live at home find the need to economize is a fact of leav- ing the nest. Even if it ' s not figured in the rent other costs arise— especially, in low-rent situations. One UNO coed lives directly over a neighborhood bar and just doesn ' t appreciate the Saturday night bands that come free with the apartment. Approximately 40% of all students live with parents or relatives. Living at home has a lot going for it; the price is right, the meals aren ' t bad, and the laundry ' s dependable. A few students can even live at home and walk to campus, at least until their homes be- come campus. 93 " it s the friendly place? " Uncle Ben ' s Bookstore is University tradition just like no parking, registra- tion headaches, and the Rosken ' s fine china collection. Attempts to dislodge Uncle Ben ' s from it ' s monopolistic position have been unsuccessful. The biggest current threat to the bookstore is the Student Government Book Exchange, but Uncle Ben isn ' t losing any sleep over it. Books are still bought back at half-price mark- ed up 25% and resold. Students can save money if they buy all pens, notebooks, and stationery at local discount stores. Comparatively shopping notebooks at the bookstore are 15% to 20% higher than at area discounters. Technical and art supplies can be purchased cheaper at local retail outlets, many offer student discounts. There is virtually no alternative to purchasing most text books at Uncle Ben ' s. Because this condition exists books are often unavailable at the be- ginning of the semester or sold out. Another problem is the selling out of a book with no reorders. After all, a struggling bookstore can ' t afford to have even a single copy of all required texts gathering dust on the shelves. With a policy of high on price, low on service. Uncle Ben ' s is alive and thriving at UNO. 95 Room 314 MBSC fills with cigarette smoke and the noise decibels reach the pollution level, another Tuesday night at the Senate begins. The red tape of Student Government ties up the meeting as a head count determines enough members present to carry on. Caught up in procedure, rules, and personality clashes the official voice of the student body must sometimes strug- gle to be heard. The 30 Senate seats are apportioned from each class and col- lege. Numerous seats are vacant through- out the year due to a continuous turn- over in senators. The most notable undertaking the Senate is required to perform is the suggesting of student fee allocations of approximately $250,000. Final approv- al as to the use of this money is left to Vice-Chancellor Ronald Beer. Senate accomplishments this year in- clude the reinstatement of finals week and slowing down the tow trucks of Verne McClurg. .

Three major concerts in December, March, and May were given by the orchestra this year, as well as the sum- mer " Orchestra on the Green " series. 108 Brass Ensemble The University Brass Ensemble is under the direction of Eugene Badgett. Instruments included in the Ensemble are trumpet, tuba, trombone, eupho- nium, french horn, and percussion. Brass Ensemble is a regularly scheduled class and is open to any University student subject to approval of the di- rector. 110 Square Mavericks If square dancing to the " Three Dog Night " sounds impossible you haven ' t been on the third floor of the MBSC on Wednesday night. With 20 members and UNO student Rod Windhorst, a pro- fessional caller, the Square Mavericks are swinging into their second year. Club president Robert Zaruba insists, " You don ' t have to be a professional, we ' ll supply the lessons if you want to join. " New members are initiated at a " grad- uation dance " at the end of each semester. The UNO Square Mavericks are one of only a few college age square dance groups in the area. Ill g Democrats An informal group of 30 to 40 mem- bers. Young Democrats help out with a variety of political activities in the Omaha area. This year ' s upcoming May elections will see their resources chan- neled into Democratic candidates ' cam- paigns. Various local Democrats in the community speak at informal luncheons given by the group. Doug Clark is first vice-chairman of the Nebraska Young Democrats. Group president is Pat Connolly. La C.A. U.S.A. Founded in 1970, La C.A. U.S.A. is an organization dedicated to increase the awareness of the students at UNO to aspects of Chicano heritage and culture. Sponsoring this Year ' s " Chicano Cultural Exhibit " the group hopes to acquaint the student with problems facing Chicanos as well as heritage. Featured speaker at the exhibit was Ricardo Sanchez, noted author, poet, and journalist.

Black Liberators for Action on Cam- pus, B.L.A.C., is a political organization which is trying to establish better rela- tions with black students at UNO. B.L.A.C. is also organized to provide a social and cultural atmosphere, giving greater insight to the black experience. Campus activities sponsored by the group this year were Black Homecoming and Black Heritage Week. Outside the University B.L.A.C. is active in support- ing local black political candidates, and voter registration. B.L.A.C. president is Heshimu Iverri. American Indians United at UNO 117 118 The Panhellenic Council serves as a central coordinating body for the five national sororities represented on the UNO campus. Central to the purpose of the organization is the regulation of the semi-annual " rush " for new pledges. The Panhellenic Council, which co- sponsors Greek Week, has a little sister organization known as the Junior Pan- hellenic Council. The Junior Council helps coordinate freshman activities within the sororities. The nine social fraternities organ- ized on the UNO campus are governed by the Inter-Fraternity Council (I.F.C.). Their purpose is to promote unity a- mong Greeks and aid in the Greek system ' s visibility on campus. I.F.C. reports a successful year with " rush " up 100%, and the gain of three new member organizations; Sigma Nu, Phi Kappa Tau, and Tau Kappa Epsilon. Panhellenic Officers: President: Peggy Twohey Vice-President: Sue Farley Secretary: Caria Spencer Treasurer: Kris Grady Publicity: Katie Shrader Officers: President: Greg Blodig Vice-President: Bob Drodza 2nd Vice-President: Dave Walker Secretary: Bob Brinker Treasurer: Mark Hoyt 119 Alpha Xi Delta Fifty members strong Chi O ' s cele- brated their 25th anniversary this year. As the first national sorority on campus, Chi Omega has set an example of public service. Activities include co- sponsoring the Alumni Casino Party for Cystic Fibrosis, and participation in the annual Muscular Dystrophy Walk-a thon. Pictured are the Chi O ' s enjoying their annual winter forma! dinner dance. 121 Gamma Phi Beta The skits at Gamma Phi Beta ' s Inspiration Night seem to produce a lot more laughs than Hollywood talent. Other funtimes for Gamma Phi ' s this year included an inter-greek skating party and the spring dinner dance. Gamma Phi Beta also has a serious side, stressing scholarship and philanthropy. Projects of special interest include work with underprivileged girls, senior citizens, and the mentally re- tarded. Sigma Kappa 123 Zeta Tau Alpha January was a busy month for the UNO Zeta chapter. The third week of the month officially designated as " Zeta Week " . Activities during the period ranged from a 6:00 pancake breakfast to an evening of wine and cheese tasting. Above, Zetas and their dates engage in a friendly game of " Pass the Body " . 124 I Sigma Nu A new social fraternity has been organized at UNO this year. Sigma Nu started out with 12 students at a com- mitment ceremony on November 4th. The Sigma Nu fraternity considers it- self unique according to the newly- elected president Steve Seline. A heavy emphasis will be placed on leadership and service. A Sigma Nu chapter is presently operating on the University of Nebraska at Lincoln campus and with the help of the Lincoln chapter the UNO chapter is pledge-educating themselves. 125 Pi Kappa Alpha Members of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity are constantly involving themselves with services to the community. One example are seven members of the fraternity currently involved as part- time cottage counselors at Boys Town. The counselors help the boys with peer problems, personal difficulties, and school work. Pi Kappa Alpha also spon- sored the Marathon Dance for Muscular Dystrophy, March 22 and 23. 126 Pi Kappa Phi Without the aid of Nate Archibald, Pi Kappa Phi engages in a little inter- fraternity cage action. A relatively new chapter Pi Kappa Phi was formally established at UNO March 17, 1972. This proceeded a three year colonization period. The fraternity observes two annual events; Founder ' s Day, December 10, and the Rosebowl each spring. Rosebowl activities honor the Pi Kappa Phi little sister organization. With an aim at service to the Univer- sity the fraternity helped Dr. Chrysler out with booklet stuffing for Orienta- tion. Outside the University Pi Kappa Phi co-sponsors a Cancer Awareness series for presentation in Omaha public schools. 127 s igma Tau Gamma Sigma Tau Gamma stresses indi- viduality and brotherhood. The 25 mem- ber group headed by Bob Nelson is in- volved in community projects such as entertaining children in Omaha area orphanages. Social activities are varied and range from sorority exchanges and rush parties to a summer Toga Party. 128 Tau Kappa Epsilon Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity is the largest national fraternity with over 370 chapters at campuses throughout the United States and Canada. The UNO chapter recently rejoined the UNO-IFC after a two year absence. The Tekes have been instrumental in changing IFC rush regulations and budgetary procedures during their with- drawal from the council. Frank Morrison welcomes Governor James Exon as an honorary TKE. 129 Lambda Chi Alpha Lambda Chi Alpha has been active during the year in sponsoring activities which are entertaining and helpful to the community. Lambda Chi sponsored the all-campus watermelon bust, an Easter egg hunt for the Omaha Home for Boys, a benefit basketball game with the KOIL Go od Guys raising money for the Arthritis Foundation, and participated in activities at the Douglas County Old Peoples Home. 130 Sigma Phi Epsilon Oriented to the goals of scholar- ship, leadership, social activity, and brotherhood Sig Eps have initiated more than 500 members into their ranks in the past 23 years on this campus. Sigma Phi Epsilon sponsors the annual " Sig Ep Sing " which is an inter- Greek stage performance competition, and a variety of other parties. In fact, Sig Eps consider a party at least a weekly event! Believing in service to the community Sig Eps make an annual holiday visit to Children ' s Hospital to distribute candy. 131 Theta Chi The Delat Zeta Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity joined the family of campus organizations in 1952. With 30 active members at the present time continual growth is expected. Each year Theta Chi sponsors the OX Olympics, open to all fraternities.

Frequently his steady stride was accompanied by a thoughtfully bent head, and hands filling the pockets. Those who knew Coach Al Caniglia will tell you his final passing will be noticed, and things a little different around UNO. The winningest football coach in the school ' s history died Feb- ruary 19, of a heart attack at age 52. According to his players the coach devoted his life to developing young men first as people and then as ath- letes. Whether it was his balding head or wrinkled brow many of his players regarded him as a father figure, calling on him whenever their personal prob- lems became too great. Coach Caniglia helped hundreds of men in his 14 year career get an education, find places to stay, and even secure summer jobs. Caniglia ' s players seem at a loss when searching for superlatives to describe their coach, and his relationship with them. Herman Colvin, a freshman mid- dle-linebacker, can only repeat, " He was a great guy. He helped in any way he could " . Student Center Director, and form- er Dean of Students, Don Pflaster was a close friend of the coach. Profession- ally, he recalls while Caniglia was coach there were no discipline problems with players. He ran a very smooth opera- tion. Personally, Pflaster recalls the fish- ing trips he and Coach Al used to take. " He loved cooking, and he was a good cook too. The only thing was the tons of garlic and onions on everything he made. I mean on meatballs I could understand it, but in Post Toasties? " Perhaps because of their close relation- ship, and the respect Pflaster held for Caniglia, he regrets the coach didn ' t get a real chance to enjoy the work he put into building a " really good foot- ball program " . Al Caniglia once played football for the Green Bay Packers, a team whose mentions brings to mind Vince Lom- bards Though Caniglia ' s coaching phil- osophy was unlike Lombardi ' s, the esteem in which their players held them was the same. Football 147 148 Cross Country coach Jim McMahon was pleased with the Maverick team this season. With many former collegians who have considerably more time to practice the UNO team stood up well against tough competition. The season closed with a dual meet record of 4-2. After heavy participation in the invitationals UNO striders placed as follows: South Dakota Invitational 2nd Iowa State Invitational . 10th Nebr. Wesleyan Invitational 5th Doane Invitational . 1st Westmar Invitational 4th South Dakota AAU 3rd Midwest AAU 2nd Would you believe ballet? 158 The opening win November 28, against Northwest Missouri was a good indication of the 73-74 wrestling sea- son. Coach M ke Palmisano and the UNO matrnen closed the season with a 24-4 record, tying the NCAA record. Highlights of the schedule included finishing fifth in the Air Force Invita- tional, and a successful southeast winter tour in January. Representing the Midwest Region Coach Palmisano has been appointed to the NCAA Division il National Wrestling Committee. The appointment is a two year commitment entailing selection of seedings in the NCAA II wrestling tournament. Ice Hockey UNO has added a new dimension to its sports program this fall--ice hockey. Interested students led by Tim Rock de- cided to organize a UNO team in Janu- ary 1972, since then the sport has at- tained club status. The UNO Athletic department has taken over some of the costs of the pro- gram by providing ice time at Ak-sar-ben and uniforms for the team. Russ Bald- win, business manager of the Athletic department says college hockey is a growing sport and that professional teams are relying more and more on col- lege students for talent. The Maverick Hockey club finished its last season with a 7-2-2 record which was better than the area schools they played. Approximately 30 students now participate in the fast growing sport of ice hockey at UNO. . . the clean sweep 163 Track UNO ' s track team, coached by Lloyd Cardwell for the 16th season performed well as a team this year. The thinclads closed the season which began January 12th with a 13-1 record. The sole loss was to Doane College at Doane in a quadrangular meet. Approximately one half dozen mem- bers of the track team also participate in Cross Country, keeping them in shape all year around. Congratulations to all members for an outstanding sea- son and a great team effort. 165 168 Bowling Club The University of Nebraska at Oma- has ' intramural Bowling Club was repre- sented by five members at the NAIA fi- nals at Kansas City, Missouri. The UNO team members finished 6th out of the 8 finalists. Members of the UNO team were Rick Snail, Steve Hultquist, Ed Schafer, Charles Roubicek, and Mark Hoyt. Gymnastics The UNO Gymnastics Club is in an experimental phase this year. Hope- fully, the experiment will be a success and a full-fledged team will be formed next year. Even though facilities and backing could use improvement the team com- petition included meets against South Dakota University and Creighton. Men ' s Intramurals All students registered for 6 hours or more are cordially invited to participate in UNO intramurals. All intramurals are under the super- vision of Intramural Director Mr. Bert Kurth. Activities in the men ' s program consist of flag football, golf, basket- ball, bowling, swimming, tennis, volley- bali, and soccer. 171 172 173 Girls ' Basketball UNO ' s female cagers finished out the season with a 7-9 record. The team experienced some traveling problems due to the energy crisis and the Sunday filling station closing. Many of the gals ' games are slated for Sunday. Other problems which plagued the team included numerous fouls and the injury of starter, Cindy Rudloff. UNO was one of twelve teams entered in the Women ' s State Basketball Tournament at Fremont. With a win over St. Mary ' s and losses to J.F.K. and Wayne State the Mavericks finished sixth in the tourney. 174 175 176 178 181 Dawson, John Day, Glen Deane, Walter DeLong, Robert Demeulmeester, J.
