Only One Student
Charged for Fires
Case Goes to Student Tribunal,
Others Involved Being Sought
Only one of the two men
arrested in connection with
fires in several Homecoming
displays early Friday was a
University student.
Previous reports that both
men are students are false,
according to J. P. Colbert,
dean of Student Affairs.
To Tribunal
The case of the student has
been referred to the Student
Tribunal and will probably
come up for trial next week,
Colbert said. Tribunal rules
stipulate that a defendant be
given at least five days notice
before his trial.
Fires were lighted some
time between 4 and 5 a.m.
Kick-off Dinner
2nd Part

Thus Rev. Rex Knowles im
parted what he termed a sec
ond, most important part of
AUF at the annual kick-off
dinner Tuesday night.
AUF is not just quotas and
m o n e y-making events, he
said. In this crisis year, we
have the opportunity to tell
every student on this cam
pus what this second part is.
Referring to the AUF drive,
Dr. Knowles commented, "I
hope you can find some very
able assistence from the very
fine people on the campus."
He stressed the educational
value of the sudden change
of plans concerning the auc
tion and independent drive.
"All of you know that AUF
must change its ways. In this
crisis year we have an oppor
tunity to change", he point
ed out.
An unexpected guest at the
banquet was Mrs. Ruth
Hanes Purkaple, program di
rector of the Committee on
Friendly Relations among
Foreign Students.
Mrs. Purkaple stressed tne
importance of the World Uni
versity Service.
'If we are to prove what
American students can do
about making their own stand
in a world community, what
better way than to give to
this kind of fund," she stated.
She compared the attitudes
of some Soviet students to
that of American students in
regard to "voluntary work in
building up the country."
The Soviet students seemed
to be more active, according
to Mrs. Purkaple.
Dr. Dudley Ashton, AUF
advisor, noted that in the pat
terns of living that are now
being formed, AUF enters the
pattern of sharing with oth
ers. John Glynn, AUF presi
dent, presided at the banquet.
The International Friend

at 6:30 p.m. in tne union
Between 250 and 300 Ameri
cans and tneir toreign stu
dent guests are expected to
attend. Tickets are $1.75.
The program will show how
historical events in the United
States have produced certain
musical forms.
Ralph Bennet will present
Aboriginal songs while Terry
Young and Merlyn Montgom

The Sinfonia quartet will sing

coln police arrested two men
in connection with the fires
later that day.
"Allegedly three of the men
involved were students and
two were not," Colbert said.
He said he could give no def
inite information on this be
cause he had no firsthand in
formation on it.
Five Involved
Several eyewitnesses to the
fires stated definitely that at
least five men were involved
in setting the blazes.
Lincoln police have indi
cated they will not press
charges in the case.
"Regardless of what the
city or county does with it
Student Affairs is referring
the case to the Tribunal for
alleged conduct detrimental
to the University," Colbert
Several students who were
witnesses to the fires will be
requested to appear before
the Tribunal to testify, he
Information Sought
"We would certainly en
courage anyone who could
come in and give information
to this office (Student Affairs)
for transmittal to the Tribunal
to do so," the dean said.

volved in setting the blazes,
Colbert said.

rests. Farmer's Formal
