WSSF Director
Addresses AUF
"The student is the key to the
solution of the whole of the
world's problems today."
Peyton C G. Smith, regional
director of the World Student
Service Fund, expressed this
opinion to All University Fund
board members and workers
Wednesdayev evening at a
special mass meeting.
In describing the "deplorable"
conditions in India and other
counties in Asia, Smith said that
in Pakistan, a country with 90
million people, there are but five
-universities. He further pointed
cut that approximately 90 per cent
of the women in Pakistan were
totally illiterate.
In India, he added there are
only 15 universities.
Educational and technical as
sistance is of utmost importance
in Asia," said Smith. Ton can
feed people who die annually in
Asia and Indonesia, but this is
more costly and less effective
than giving them education so
that they may solve their own
problems and handle their own
Smith concluded by saying,
Every single little bit you give to

If the Greek system intends to stay on the Ne

the lives of students, it better stop

The Inter-Fraternity Board of Appeals met last
Tuesday to hear the pleas of those fraternities

received sharp criticism from alumni and active
fraternity members.

IFC Alumni Advisory council member also said
that action would definitely be taken against those
fraternities that individually released what" they
knew about the proceedings of the Appeal Board.
When the caller was asked if bis council
or the IFC had any legal basis to take action
against fraternities releasing appeal board news
to any newspaper, his answer was "I cant tell
yon that ... we cannot say ... I have no com
ment to make."
"When this writer answered that, from a news
point of view, The Daily Nebraskan would make
no gentleman's agreement with the IFC alumni

would be to contact the University administration
and request ''cooperation on this matter." Which
cannot be construed to mean anything but that the effect, that it cannot stand honest, objective re

fully understand the caller's desire to avoid "ad-:

result if The Nebraskan released the Appeal

However, the Alumni Advisory council is in
dicating in its action, that the Greek system can
not withstand criticism, that it would be criti

about its own disciplinary measures, and that
it has something to hide from the public
The Daily Nebraskan has no desire to jeapor
dize the standing of any fraternity on this campus
by attempting to secure the results of the appeal
board meeting. This writer, in particular, has no
desire to see the Greek system lose out on this
campus in fact, is a staunch supporter of the good
to be derived from Greek organizations.
However, The Nebraskan will not stand for
the attempts to have its news and editorial poli
cies dictated by anyone. An administrative offi
cial told The Nebraskan Thursday night that
"the administration has no desire to follow np
on someone else's threats.'
This writer will not go along with the attempts
of the Greek system to hide from criticism, to at
