Student Bodies Quarantined
"CAMPUS CENSORSHIP in 1962 eas
ily rivaled that of any previous year.
From coast to coast, and particulary in
the Midwest, student bodies were quar
antined from a variety of political here
sies." This statement was made by Prof.
William W. Van Alstyne of Ohio State
University Law School in the January is
sue of the University of Pennsylvania
Law Review. Professor Van Alstyne's Ar
ticle considers the extent to which the
Constitution restricts the right of state
university officials to bar controversial
speakers from campus.
The author points out that "a consid
erable number of guest lecturers, form
ally invited to state university campuses
by recognized student organizations, have
been turned away by members of the
administration. It is significant that those
to whom the students were forbidden to
listen were very often unpopular figures."
Certain organizations, such as the Ameri
can Civil Liberties Union, the National
Student Association, and the American
Association of University Professors, have
strenuously objected to this state of af
fairs. The latter two organizations have
based their arguments essentially on pol
icy grounds, and not on constitutional
The America! Bar Association's Com
mittee on the Bill of Rights, however, "is
of the opinion that 'no question of the
Bin of Rights is involved' where univer
sity officials decide that spokesmen for
the Communist party shall be denied ac
cess to university facilities ordinarily "
available for guest speakers." But Pro
fessor Van Alstyne takes issue with this
position. He argues that much of what
the NSA and AAUP urge on policy
grounds is in fact fully supported by con
stitutional mandates. It is the thesis of
his Article that "the ABA Committee's
position with regard to Communist speak
ers is wrong. Settled principles of con
stitutional law require liberality in state
university rules dealing with guest speak
ers far beyond what that Committee sug
gests or what currently prevails on many
After describing the Prevailing Su
preme Court test dealing with the sup
pression of speech, the author points out
that "Universities have experienced diffi
culty with both parts of the test. They
have improperly identified the kinds of
evils that are constitutionally within their
power to prevent, and have failed to de
velop conclusive standards by which to
isolate speakers whose presence on
campus will probablv incite violence."
PROFESSOR VAN Alstyne's major
objection is that state universities decide
to bar speakers on the basis of their af
filiations rather than the content of the
speech they would deliver on a given oc
casion. He argues that a ban on speech
must be based on the content of the pro
posed address rather than the speaker's
According to the author, a state uni
versity may only bar a guest speaker if
the assembly which gathers to hear him
"will intolerably burden the school's fa
cilities." Burden, in turn, is to be judged
on the basis of the time, place, and man
ner of the proposed speech.
In conclusion. Professor Van Alstyne
states: "Universities would render a far
greater service by abandoning substan
tive limitations on guest speakers alto
gether. Any otter policy necessarily ex
presses a skepticism of student intelli
gence and fear of the appeal of today's
social critics. Both inferences are con
trary to the categrokral imperatives of a

Congratulations to Scrip J
SCRIP SOLD out in two days. This most be some sort of a record here at the
University. In fact, there are more than just a few people close to the publication
that are walking around with a startled grin and plenty of stipends in the kitty.
The Nebraskan is pleased and startled at the no less than fantastic success of
the little blue magazine. We account for it in two ways. First, there is no doubt that
students at Nebraska lack this sort of entertainment and are evidently in a rather
starved condition if the sales are any indication. Second, the quality of the magazine
is supurb. Everv article, poem and drawing are very well done.
WE DO NOT want to get into individual plaudits, but would rather give con-
gratulations for a job very well done to the Scrip staff, its advisor and its contributors. I
The only thing lacking in the magazine is regularity of publication. But as the 1
prestige of this fragil magazine increases so will its demand and the problem of 1
regularity will be solved. This last issue went along ways in gaining the needed pres-
THE SCRIP staff has said that at least two more magazines are planned for
the rest of the year. This is two more than most years and three more than many.

This last Scrip and its sale-out is a black and white indication that there is a
definite need for literary magazine on campus. This need should stimulate many to j
contribute. We hope so.

SALUTE: FRANK KIRK
by wendy regert
How would yon like a twelve dollar
return for a one dollar investment? Or
how does 112,000 and possibly $25,000 re
turn sound on a f 1,000 investment?
A definite total of $13,000 and pos
sibly $26,000 could be made available in
low-cost student loans through local banks
with the backing of United Student Aid
Funds Inc., according to Dan Pop, acting
director of the Scholarships and Finan
cial Aids division. If the University could
put up flOO for the USA Funds reserve,
the foundation would guarantee matched
funds up to 112,000 in loans to students
by local banks. The local banks would be
loaning this money to students at no more
than 6 per cent simple interest rate with
a full guarantee by USA Funds. This pri
vate, non-profit service corporation, ac
cording to Pop, recently indicated that
if the $1,000 could be put up by the Uni
versity, there is also a possibility that
they could arrange for another $1,000 sup
plement, thus making a total of $26,000
available for long-term student loans.
Any student who attends a college
participating in the USA Funds program
and who has completed bis freshman year
is eligible for a loan up to $1,000 a year
or a combined total of $3,000 for his un
dergraduate and -or graduate education.
The amount of each loan is determined
between the individual and the bank.
Repayment on the loan begins within four
months after completion of the under
graduate education. Payments are spread
over 36 monthly installments. No collat
eral is needed and parents need not as
sume financial liability for the loan. The
note will be endorsed in fvtl by USA
Funds which maintains a reserve equal
to 8 per cent of the loans it endorses.
Part of the reserve is deposited by col
leges and universities and the balance
comes from contributions by national
foundations, business concerns, and indi
vidual. If the borrower fails to make
payments as agreed after he leaves school,
the Kack "shall exert every influence
short of legal action to collect the debt.
When normal efforts have been exhausted,
USA win make the loan good without con
test," according to the foundation's infor
The sheet also notes that USA Funds
will be self -containing when it reaches
full operational level returns from the
investment of the reserve are expected
to cover defaults, insurance premiums
and administrative expenses.
The difficulty, said Pop, is that no
tax funds may be used for individual
aid, and most grants and funds from out
side sources are earmarked for a spe
cific purpose. So the University has no
money to put into USA Fund reserves,
no matter bow good the program is.
"If we could come up with $1,000
BEFORE JANUARY 31, students could
benefit from this program second se
mester, said Pop.
This program is especially beneficial
for those students who do not meet the
qualifications of the loan programs now
administered by the University and those
students "who need more money than
we can provide," continued Pop.
And there is another consideration in
volved The University was allowed to
participate in the USA Funds program
first semester when, as an initial help,
the foundation found another source for
the University's deposit. So the Univer
sity, in essence, was able to underwrite
loans by local banks in the amount of
$13,000 to 26 students now enrolled here.
These students have received up to $500
each for the first semester. Now they
face the possibility that, without the USA
Funds guarantee to the local banks, the
rest of their loan will not be forthcoming
for second semester UNLESS SOME
ONE COMES TO THE RESCUE.
This $1,000 seems a small amount in
comparison to the benefits which will re
sult But unless a source for the money
can be found before Jan. 31, some of those
26 students may not be able to continue
their education, and many potential bene
ficiaries may suffer the same fate.
There is a report that is circulating
in some groups that the series of crimin
ology courses presently taught by Dr.
James Reinhardt will undergo severe al
teration or even cancelation after Dr.
Reinhardt retires at the end of this year.
A number of students have expressed
concern over such a move. We must
agree. Criminology, though a small part
of the Sociology Department is a very
important course for not only sociology
majors but almost everyone in Arts and
Science. The series of courses under Dr.
Reinhardt's instruction should not be al
tered or dropped after his retirement.
In addition, the University should
seek to hire a young Ph. D. who has had
practical experience in the field of crim
inology to conduct the courses next year.
Dr. Reinhardt is a very capable teacher
and has taught bis classes well not only
because he knows the theoretical infor
mation involved in criminology, but also
because he has practical experience and
work in criminology.
