Wednesday, April 20, 1960 Page 4 The Daily Nebraskan Christian Explains editor's Note: This ft tha aetond r flcl ta twa-part aerfea explaining the evectal Freedom Fund of the National Assoc ta Mam for the Advancement of Col ored People. The article Heiow provides a look at present conditions of the Negro hi the Sent and explains, the rnmpoi Stndent Christian Council's outlook on toe Freedom fund. , By John Else Since early March, Negro and white students in the South have been participat ing in "sit-in" demonstra tions of many typesr One of these demonstrations started in Nashville, Tenn., where young Negroes walked into the Woolworth Store and sat down at the lunch counter.. They were refused service. In tras case, as in nu merous others, the Negroes did . not retaliate when a group of whites began name calling, spitting, cuffing and then boldly punched, banged heads against the counters, stuffed cigar ette butts down the Negroes collars and finally pulled three Negroes from their seats and beat them. As the Negroes ran from the store, the whites screamed for them, to stay and fight. Even though there were law officials around the . store, no one was arrested for starting the violence. In Marshal, Tex., 70 stu dents from Bishop College and Wiley College were ar rested for sit-in demonstra tions. Bail for release of each student was $700, which was paid by Negro property owners, but each student is to be tried in dividually, which means large court costs for their trials and fines. These two examples only serve to show what is hap pening in the South. There have been numerous arrests and money is urgently needed to pay bail for re lease, court costs for tirals, and the fines levied. The Student Christian Council, representing the Protestant denomina tions on the campus, wishes to speck on this situation for two reasons: as citizens in a democratic nation we hold that each man is en titled to his place in socie ty; as communicants of the Christian faith we hold that God, through Christ, was I I Op daily 9:30 to 5:30 I I Thursday 10 to 8:30 (' x V Council Position reconciling all men to him self and to each other. We view the -demonstrations In the South as evi flence that the living Christ is now at work reconciling negroes and whites unto each other ,and to God. Our faith calls, us to share with the campus our conviction that we in the North must participate in this recon ciliation. We think one valid way is to raise money to pro vide lawyers' fees and court costs for the Negroes de fense so that the separa tion of colors is no longer ata estrangement of man's relationship to his fellow man. Thus we have turned to the All University Fund to ask their support for an all campus solicitation. Any money raised will be given to the Freedom Fund ar ranged by the National As sociation for the Advance ment of Colored People for the specific purpose of help ing Negroes pay their court costs and attorney fees. There are at present sev eral different funds to which money can be given, but we believe this particu lar one to be the best. By designating our money in this way, we do not feel that this implies complete sup port of the N. A. A. C. P. It is only recognition that their fund is the one which will be the most effective in distributing funds where they are needed. However, no action will come from the S. C. C. un til the A. U. F. has an nounced its decision. Fur ther plans will be made pending their decision.

These men already have proven their capacity to shoulder executive responsibility. 2. Traditional rewards, In every organization, greater respon sibilities mean greater rewards. Thus the traditional respon sibilities and prestige of an Army officer are matched by material advantages. For example, if you plan to marry soon after graduation an officer's salary can be a distinct advantage. A married 2nd Lieutenant earns a minimum of $355.68 per month plus substantial fringe benefits. Need more information?
