Yale's President A. Whit ney Griswold said last week the affidavit "is contrary to the classic principles of our colleges and universities." Harvard president Nathan M. Pusey called the oath "misguided," and an "affi davit of disbelief." No Open Objection So far, Nebraska students have not openly objected to the oath, according to Claire Harper, director of University services and treasurer of the student loan fund. An applicant must sign the affadavit stating he does not believe in, belong to or sup port "any organization that believes in ' or teaches the overthrow of the United States government by force or violence or by any illegal Meet Each Week Foreign, Native Girls To Work Together Twelve American and for eign girls will begin working together next week to under stand what America can be and not just what is "typical." They will meet each Friday for a class and during the weeks spend time studying, visiting at the residences and sharing other experiences. "We have selected with care through interviews and refer ences those that we feel are among the top American and top foreign girls on campus," said Dr. William E. Hall, pro-' fessor of educational psycho logy. I He continued that often stu dents come here with a dis like for America and that by the time they leave they think even less of the country and the people here. Common Bond By selecting a common bond and goal to work for, he said he hoped that Ameri can students can show the other girls how fine Ameri cans can be, rather than only what is typical, which often gives outsiders the wrong idea. The six Americans se lected are LaNette Wiese, Karen Long, Sharon Mon crief, Patsy Schmidt, Gail Gray and Sally Lancaster. Two foreign students are still to be selected, but the four named by Dr. Hall are Prab hat Sookapam, Thailand; Be atrice Franklin, India; Sanamma Thomas, India, and Hildegart Ibarra, Panama. The idea began last spring when Dr. Hall and Mrs. Her bert Walt, associated with the Lancaster County Red Cross, selected 12 to try it on a trial basis. The enthusiasm and suc cess of t he group was so great that another program was started this year. Completed Project American students who completed the past project were Gretchen Saeger, Sylvia Bathe, Kathy Roach, Marilyn Pickett, Dorothy Hall and Elizabeth Smith.

Harper said that since the loans were made available in March, a total of $78,739 had been loaned to 208 stu dents for one or more per iods. He explained that, many students had repeated loans for summer- school and the current semester. In March, 45 students bor rowed $11,739, a total of 46 borrowed $13,242 for summer school, and 154 are using $53, 460 this semester. Only 19 current borrowers are re peaters, according to Harper. Expect Increase "We expect the number of borrowers in the plan to in crease as more learn about it and enrollments increase," he added. Harper also called the plan "too liberal," and said cleri- Estella Saenz, Jeannine Bar nett, Mavis English, Tamar Gil, Gunel Atisek and Sally Markarian. First Aid through the American Red Cross was selected for the class because that organization is familiar to people from all countries. At t he completion of the course certificates were awarded. Mrs. Walt said that this is something that foreign students "treasure and work hard to achieve." This fall the students used their course by working in the first aid tent during foot ball games. Dr. Hall told the girls that the project should not be re garded as an activity but as a challenge' and a serious commitment. Ag Judgers To Compete In Chicago The University Livestock Judging Team left for the Na tional Intercollegiate Cham pionships in Chicago Monday after placing third in the Midwest Judging Clinic at Kansas State Saturday. Nebraska came in behind Iowa State and Oklahoma State in the competition last weekend. Iowa State scored a winning total of 4,610 points, while the University amassed 4,549 points. Ernest Thayer was the top Nebraska point gatherer with a total of 923 and placed fourth in the entire contest. The team will stop at Len nox, IJanning and Ames, Iowa, enroute to Chicago, and at Barrington, Mukwonago, Libertyville and Richmond in Illinois. They will be in Chi cago from Friday through Tuesday morning and return to Lincoln Tuesday afternoon. Making the trip are Gerald Goold, Ted Klug, George O'Neal, D o n n Simonson, Thayer and Patrick Wright, and Prof. R. B. Warren, who coaches the team. For Tips Hardin cal work required to keep tab on long-term borrowers might cost universities a great deal of money. Checking Required "As soon as a student drops below 12 hours, he is no longer eligible for the loan and his note becomes due one year after that date," Harper con tinued. "This takes a lot of check ing. Students may drop courses after receiving th loan," he added. On Oct. 31, more than $155, 000 in loans were outstand ing from the University's permanent loan fund. A total of 673 borrowers owed the money, Harper said.

The Student Council Park ing Board had recommended the change since very few students used the short-time meters.
