Senior Staff Writer
Greensboro, North Caro
lina, has been called a "pro
gressive" city in the context
of the Negro Revolt in the
past few years. Civil rights
demonstrations and protests
there have gained some of the
results Negro leaders have
To the eight University of
Nebraska students taking
part in a phase of that re
volt, voter registration,
Greensboro's problems are
still many its solutions few.
University students were with
about 80 other students from
fifteen colleges participating
in the National Young Wom
en's Christian Association's
voter registration project
over their spring vacation in
The Greensboro project
was part of a national project
this spring. Over 600 students
from 100 colleges traveled to
eight project sites across the
United States.
The Greensboro project was
supervised by the local Na
tional Advancement of Color
ed People (NAACP). Students
went door to door encourag
ing Negro residents to vote,
explaining local politics if
necessary and use of North
Carolina's voting machine.
The situation in Greensboro
now, and in much of the up
per South has reached a
standstill. According to local
NAACP President Dr. George
Simpkins, the role of the Ne
gro voter is most important
"In order for the Negro to
gain his individual rights
now, he must use his power
at the polls," Dr. Simpkins
Simpkins encouraged the
participation of outside
parties, especially college
students, because "sometimes
it takes the pressure off local
leaders, both Negro and
white, giving the program a
certain spontanaity."
Simpkins stressed that Ne
gro leaders realize the im
portance of educating the Ne
gro public so that they may
cope with their responsibili
ties as well as their rights.
Project workers, en
couraged by S i m p k I n' s
NAACP chapter, promoted in
terest in this eduation of the
public at the host school
North Carolina Agricultural
and Technical. A & T stu
dents were urged to go along
with outside students while
they canvassed. Students al
so stressed reading courses
offered by the local YWCA.
Efforts including the YWCA
project in the last four years
have raised the number of
registered Negro voters from
6,000 to nearly 13,000 out of a
possible 16,000. NAACP lead
ers are pushing for maximum
participation in the May 30
primary in ureenstDoro. .Ne
groes comprise over one
fourth of Greensboro's 150,000
Support for the civil rights
push in Greensboro comes
from a wide variety of
sources. Civil rights groups
like Congress on Racial
Equality (CORE) played a
main role in Greensboro s re
cent demonstrations.
Church support has come
from Catholic, Jewish and
Unitarian clergy, but in sev
congregations have pressured
ministers on their stands for
the Negro movement. In one
instance, a Protestant minis
ter was asked to leave a
week after he had preached
for the Negro's dignity.
Professor Robert Ashby of
rennett College in Greens
boro attributed lack of sup
port from the university com
munity stems from the fact
that three of Greensboro's
four colleges are womens' in
stitutions. He asserted that
although many women are
active participants, few are
as capable leaders as men
have proven to be.
Demonstrations in Greens
boro reached a high point in
June of 1963. Community
leaders, Negro and white,
feared possible violence and
consequently Negro protest
has been limited to the con
ference table and at long
range at the polls.
Negro support stems from
the clergy and a smattering
middle class citizens. A&T
and Bennett students have
provided the student impet
us for demonstration and dis
cussion. Simpkins expressed
hope that visiting project
workers could encourage up
per midd1 class Negroes to
participate In civil rights or
gamzations like the NAACP.
For that reason students
visited Greensboro's hand
some Negro residential areas
as well as its near slum
areas across town.
Colleges represented in
Greensboro were: Nebraska,
Cornell, Amherst, Ithica, Mt,
Holyoke, Illinois, Queen Col
lege of New York, Miami of
Ohio, Penn State, West Vir
ginia, Missouri, Elizabeth
City State College, University
of Wichita, Virginia, Berea
College, Bennett and Nebras

University of Nebraska?
is a high school class in
Wetzikon, Switzerland and bow it hap
pens the kids are wearing Nebraska
sweatshirts takes a bit of explaining.
They got the sweatshirts through the
efforts of Jane Brendenberg, now a 17-year-old,
top-ranking freshman student at
the University of Nebraska.
Last year Miss Brandenberg, then a
student at Southeast high school in Lin
coln, was selected by the American Field
Service Exchange program to study for a
year in Switzerland.
Her mother, a University alumna,
wrested a sweatshirt would be just the
thing for her to have on shipboard.
When Miss Brandenberg got to Wet
zikon she found that her exchange fam
ily brothers and sisters were fascinated
by the sweatshirts. She got some for them
as gifts and then other class members
wanted sweatshirts too. The final order
was filled last December, after she had
returned home.
Noting the founding date of Febru
ary 15, 18G9, stamped on the shirts,
Wetzikon high school class L-4-A, decided
to have a University of Nebraska 95th
anniversary Jubilee party. So everybody
wore their sweatshirts to school and the
above picture was taken.
