U.S. Ac ommunist By Wayne Kreuscher Junior Staff Writer The United States help ing Communism in Latin America? Dr. Michael Meyer, assist ant professor of Latin Ameri can history at the University, told the Daily Nebraskan Tuesday in an interview about present conditions in the Do minican Republic that we are helping Communism to spread. "President Johnson's deci sion to send marines into the Dominican Republic," he said, "was very ill-advised and con trary to the best interests of the United States." He said that sending ma rines into Latin American was against the philosophy under lying the Organization of American States and adds to the bad legacy that the United States has been trying to live down in Latin America since the 1930's. Meyer pointed out that the only real reason that we sent marines to the island was be cause Johnson thought that Communists had infiltrated the junior officer movement that is now trying to over throw the junta in power and restore the old president. Meyer said that rather than stop Communist infiltration ha ITnifall Statpe ntllv hpltlpH Work At Sale Today Student art work will go on sale in the Pan American room of the Nebraska Union , The sale will begin at noon and continue through 8 p.m. Art work will also he ; on saie 1 tomorrow irom noon io o j...... Hon FiarSlhiefs junior officers who are now trying to change and reform the present government. "The marines pushed the two anti groups, the Commu nists and the junior officers, together," he said. He explained that by choos ing to militantly support the present status quo, conserva tive government, the Ameri cans are forcing those who want to reform the govern ment to join with the com munists. "The United States is in danger," he said, "of failing to support reform-minded gov ernments, government on the democratic left." Meyer pointed out that if the United States somehow helped these people who are only seeking to reform their government, the United States "would steal the thunder from Communism and decrease the Communistic threat in coun tries seeking reform." "News dispatches," he said, "indicate that Communist ac tivity is stronger now in the Republic than what it was, but they still haven't taken over leadership. The Communists seem content to let the ma rines make converts for them to Communism." He stressed the fact that by fighting against these people who want to reform the gov ernment, we are only pushing Students To Manage Outstate Mass Media Five teams of University journalism students will pub lish daily newspapers, pro duce picture pages and oper ate a radio station on field trip assignments next week.

Cause them further to the left, but that if we didn't interfere they would stay at a moderate left and democracy would grow as it is suppossed to. He explained that by send ing approximately 22,000 ma rines to the Dominican Repub lic we are not only confusing the civil war there, hurting our image and helping the communists, but we are ig noring the basic concept of the Organization ofAmerican States. Johnson, he pointed out. made the decision to send In marines before consulting the OAS. "If we had sent no soldiers in at all," he said, "the mod erate left reformers would have succeeded and the gov ernment would have become more democratic." He pointed out that the de mocratic left in Latin Ameri ca is one of the most anti Communist groups in the hemisphere. He said that the marines were going to have to be in there for a long time unless we can strike accord with the rebels. "We will continue with ma rines in the Dominican Repub lic and our present policies if we are not concerned about our image in Latin America ' and if we don't want to stop i Communism," he said. na Morris as city editor; Priscilla Mulllns, telegraph editor; and Tranda Schultz, society editor.
