Big 8 Delegations
Support for Peace
Delegates to the Big Eight
Student Government Associa
tion pledged the efforts of
their local student govern
ments in promoting a broad
er knowledge and more con
cise understanding of the
Peace Corps."
Reacting positively to t h e
challenge they received from
James Sykes, field represent
ative of the Peace Corps, the
student government especially
will work among students
trained in agiricultural skills,
encouraging greater and more
accurate knowledge of" t h e
Peace Corps.
Sykes presented an' eight
point program at the Nebras
ka Center Conference for
helping delegates "release the
potential of their schools and
Peace Corps, volunteers."
He suggested establishing a
Peace Corps committee with
in the student government
which would coordinate ef
forts in publicizing and ob
t a i n i n g speakers on the
Peace Corps.
"The Peace Corps will
need not only the support of
University students, but also
the support of adult and youth
clubs outside our colleges,"
said Sykes, "if its present one

Free Concert
"The Flying Band of SAC",
the official Strategic Air
Command Band from Omaha
will present a concert Sun
day night in the Student Un
ion ballroom beginning at 8
p.m. ,
The band, which is com
posed of 40 members, ap
peared at the University last
year and is returning be
cause of their popular recep
tion last year.'
In addition to performing as
a concert band, the organiza
tion will be broken down into
a 20-voice "SAC Glee Club,"
a progressive jazz combo and
a 16-picrs dance band. The
band is known throughout the
United States for its musical
versatility and unique show
manship. The members of the band
are hand picked by the band
commander, Capt. Herman
Vincent, for their ability and
professional experience.
The band commander is a
veteran of 12 years of serv
ice with the Air Force. He
has commanded some of the
major bands within the Air
Force and was Command
Band Supervisor frr the U.S.
Air Forces in Europe.
The associate conductor of
the SAC Band is CW'O Rich
ard Daugherty. He has spent
several years as principal
trumpet in a number of Air
Force bands. He was appoint

rtdents, three from India and
one from Portugal.
"Goa was more of an ex
penditure than an asset to
Portugal. The Portuguese
people in Goa were maifily
administrators, and the few
propriation is to be renewed
and expanded."
As a member of the Peace
Corps, he said, you can be
come part of the culture of a
rising and new generation.
"Through the Peace Corps, ad
venture, which has so long
been closed to the American
youth, is reopened. A volun
teer has a chance' to learn
the aspirations and expecta
tions of people of underde
veloped nations, with whom
the future of the world rests."
As a Peace Corps volunteer
you would recieve only a sub
sistance allowance and an ac
cumulated $75,000 a month
severance pay, Sykes said,
plus $1,000.00 allowance in the
tools of your trade.
"An alert and truly wak
ened body politic may be the
by-product of the Peace
Corps," said Sykes.
When a volunteer returns to
his home state and communi
ty and says "the real .needs
of the people of Nigeria are
not what this State Depart
ment bulletin says, but . . .",
then, he said, the American
people will truly be a part of
the world community.

Tryouts for the '62 skit-oo
show of Coed Follies will
be held this evening.
Herbie Nore, Coed Follies
chairman, said that this
year there is a new idea
being used for the tryouts.
Only fifteen girls from
each house are in the try
outs. The purpose of this is
to allow students to study
for finals, she explained.
Miss Nore explained that
the judges will not be look

looking for potential.

the Indian population that
they felt more sympathy to
India than Portugal," said
Hugo D'AIarcao, a graduate
student and instructor in
mathematics who is a na
tive of Portugal.
Sahib Malkani, a gradu
ate student in Business Ad
ministration from India,
said that the Portuguese had
"no right" to be in Goa
and other colonies and that
they should have left grace
fully as the British and
French did.
Prem Guppa, who is head
of the English department
at a college "in Agmer, In
dia, explained that Goa was
originally a part of India
until the 16th century.
She noted that Britain,
France and Portugal each
set up territorial claims and
had treaty agreements
among themselves as to the
administration of India. In
1947 the major portion of
India became independent
as British rule was ended.
Shortly afterward, the
French pulled out of Bondi
chirry and Other territories
of French India.

truth as it shows the world our

tic, and willing Americans,"
he said.
President Kennedy has said
this about the Peace Corps:
It is a dream, a dream of an
army waging a new kind of
war, a war against disease,
poverty, tyranny, illiteracy
and against war itself.
"It is the war that all the
guns, tanks, and soldiers
have been unable to win, but
which you as American stu
dents alone can bring a Unit
ed States victory.
"The problems are towering
and unprecedented and the re
sponse must be towering and
unprecedented as well."

Haryash Gugnani, a jun
ior majoring in mechanical
engineering from India, said
that India tried to persuade
the French and Portuguese
to leave their colonies.
"The French realized that
they had no business to be
in India although like the
Portuguese they could have
stayed using the same
meaningless phrase that
they were French provinces.
"The Portuguese however,
took advantage of India's
declared policy of non-violence
and peaceful negotia
tions. They felt that since
India would never use force
to liberate the people of Goa,
they could stay on forever.
If one party adopts this de
liberate policy, the 1 other

ternative to use except

D'AIarcao said that if the
people of Goa would; have
had a chance to vote, they
would have definitely sided
with India.

egistration Deadline
The University took steps
Saturday to assist undergrad
uate students in making up
their minds early on whether
lor not they plan to enter the
j University in the fall term.
Last September, 350 appli
cants who applied and regis
tered early for the fall term
failed to appear for the open
ing of classes, according to
Chancellor Clifford Hardin.
Class Unfilled
He said this meant that
1,750 class spaces were un
filled, causing last-m i n u t e
changes, while late reg
istrants, in many cases, were
unable to get into certain
"We feel that the reserva
tion fee will encourage reg
istrants to notify us early if
they are not coming. Also, the
admission deadline will force
new-student "shoppers" to de
cide early if they are coming
to the University," Hardin
"As a result, by Aug. 31 we
should have a good idea of
the number of students we
can expect each fall. This
will give us time to plan for
efficient use of classrooms
and will prevent us from over
or understaffing for the fall
semester," he explained.
Under the plan for the reg
istration fee, all early regis
trants who fail to make the
$25 deposit by July 31 will
forfeit their space reserva
