Student action, a source of
criticism from the various ac

campus, drew some comment
by G. Robert Ross, vice chan

In reply to charges of ad
ministration apathy by Dr.
David Trask, associate pro
fessor of history, Ross said
that it was a subject which
he hadn't discussed with
! Trask and was not clear about
i what Trask meant.
'We have keDt the student
as the prime concern, even
with problems that have come
! up," r0ss said,
; ross also said he was not
: sure "what indicators of
apathy Trask was using."
Ross also said he thought
that Trask was leveling t h e
charges of apathy "at the to
tal institution administra-
tion, tacuity ana students. i
Greater Attention
"I think attention given stu
dents is greater this year than
it has been in several years
and Trask is a good indica
tion of this," Ross pointed
In response to Trask's state
ment that he thought the ad-
and faculty
should work with student ac
tion groups rather than
against them, Ross said, "I
agree with him wholehearted
ly and I think that if Trask
would check, he would find
that this is currently being

All youth of this generation
were challenged to "somehow
find a solution to the world's
greatest problems of any
time" Thursday in a convoca
tion at the Nebraska Union.
The challenger, Norman
Thomas, is an old 81-year-old
man who has crusaded all his
life for what he thinks is
right, who has run for the
presidency of the U n i t e d
States six times on the So-1
cialist ticket and who has seen
some of his once radical ideas I
become a reality. j
The problems he presented j
which "have to be solved" !
included civil rights, the war
against poverty and the w ar j
against war itself.
Thomas stressed that more !
important than fighting Com-
munism, that more important i
than trvfriP to takp nursplvps
strong through force, that
more important than trying to
make democracy with war,
"we have to fight war itself." j
He said some type of world
police force was needed to!
keep peace in the world, but j
he challenged the whole issue j
nf t.hP United trviner to
act alone "as the will of God"
in fighting other people's civil i
wars. i
"The United States," he j
said, "is fighting for no type j
of liberty or democracy in ;
Viet Nam unless liberty is de
fined as non-Communism."
He said that the Viet Nam
war was primarily a civil
war and that the present Viet- j
namese government is defi- j
nitely no image of liberty or ;
democracy nor had it ever !
been. He stressed that the war
there is with the Viet Cong
and not with the Red Chinese.

Approximately 300 to 400
students, recipients of schol
arships or loans, or those
with other overpayments of
tuition, are awaiting refunds
from the University, accord
ing to James Wickless, bur
sar. The students who are en
titled to refunds are those
whose notices of reward
were received by the Univer
sity too late for the amount
of the award to be included
on the tuition statement and
deducted from the tuition as
sessment total.

ment," Wickless said.
He explained that such
students would normally have
been able to pick up their
money when they arrived an
.... w
IF i rss
that some way other than
fighting has to be found to
fight Communsim. He pointed
out that we would be far bet
ter off if negotiations could
result in a kind of Yugoslavia
in Southeast Asia.
Johnson should announce
right now that he wants to
negotiate with the Viet Cong,
and that he wants to end the
war in Viet Nam, Thomas
said. He
i couldn't
explained that he
prove this would
work, but that the chances
are great that it would, that
the war would end, and that
Southeast Asia could be made
"The chance for most peo
ple in your generation to live
in anything like decency is
very slim," he said "unless
radical changes are made in
our foreign policy."
Another problem that young
i people Will nave to tace IS
the nation's present welfare
state which is giving benefits
to the poor and unemployed,
but actually has not changed
the nation's economy, he said,
He explained that Johnson
had been successful in setting
P system similar to t h e
Romans' "bread and cir-
cuses" where the poor are be
ing doled out an existence and
the unemployed are being
But he stressed that the
economy itself has not been
changed any and that this
"doling out an existence and
keeping the poor happy"
would become harder and
more complex as long as the
economy itself wasn't
He stressed that he wasn't
against the welfare state be
cause after all it does support
many of his ideas and those
of his Socialist companions
but nevertheless there would
! deal to be done as far as mak
ing the civil rights reality,
educating the Negroes and
improving their economic lev
el. campus, but that a number
of factors compounded the
usual amount of red tape In
volved in processing tuition
Among these factors is that
a new procedure for the pro
cessing of fund requests be
tween the University and the
Nebraska Statehouse has
been established. Wickless de
clined to explain the exact
nature of the changes made,
but said that some of the de
tails of the procedure have
not been straightened out and
that this is causing a delay
in processing of current re
quests. The University does have a
revojvJng fund deposit for
- . -
emercencv navment oi re-
funds, but the fund has been
empty since Sept. 26. Wick
less said, however, that mon
ey for the fund is now forth
coming from the State Treas
ury office.
Also involved in the delay is
what Wickless called an "in
ability to get stuff through da
ta processing." He said the
procedure was somewhat
time consuming and notd
that it took 12 hours for the
tuition record: of all the stu
dents on the University'6 Lin
coln campuses to be process
ed. Equally time consuming Is
the necessity to have every
tuition record checked bv a
staff member to assure that
students will receive be tiro
per refund. TV staff is about
one-thlrrt of th way toward
completion of this nroiert.
Another complication that
Wickless noted was that his
staff, like other Ur' -rsitv
departments, is too small
for the job they must do, TTe
said his office was next expect
ing the tremendous increase
in enrollment thli fall.
