18 Year Old Vote
LINCOLN A petition to lower Nebraska's voting age to 18
has been filed by Leonard Owen of Lincoln, state commander of
the Veterans of Foreign Wars. i
Following this filing, the VFW will begin circulating the peti
tion to get 59,000 signatures necessary to get the question on the
ballot. F. M. Parker of Kearney will head the campaign.
In explaining his reasons for the petition, Owen said high
school graduates are better versed in political science than they
used to be and should have the right to voice their political opin
ions through voting. Also, Owen said, since the draft age is 18,
men should have the right to choose those who send them to war.

JUDGE SPENCER found
Postma was "unlawfully de
prived" of his liberty by failure
of the Lincoln Municipal Court
"to perform a ministerial act in
fixing the amount of the Appeal
bond . . . and granting him the
right of appeal within 10 days."

Supreme Court ruled that a
defendant, even if he has
pleaded guilty, has a right to
appeal a Police Court conviction.
Acting on this ruling Saturday,
Postma's attorneys immediately
instituted the habeas corpus
action in District Court.
Judge Spencer said that Post

was entitled to be released pend

O God our Father, we confess the sins that are ours as stu
Our laziness and wasting of time
Our lack of discipline
Our fear of those who oppose us and our failure vr witness
to them , " '
Our irresponsibility In choosing a career and our unwilling
ness to forgo material wealth

Our failure to pray regularly and to expect great things of

On this day, Father God, we bring before Thee the needs of
the students of the world. We pray especially: .
For those who have lost their sense of significance as stu

For those tormented by the difficulty of choosing a vocation
For those who have become estranged from their families
For those who study far from their home within a strange

We thank Thee, Father, for all teachers who have a vision

may serve Thee with quiet minds to Thy Glory.
We ask that our faith and prayer may not fail, and that
Thou wilt use and empower us as Thy instruments. And we
pray that Thou wilt raise up for our time men and women in
every land who bring about peace and brotherhood and obedi
