"SITTING . . on a razor edge" echoed Sen. Wayne Morse as he described the
United States position in Viet Nam."
Sen. Morse ...
Americans 'Uninformed'
About Viet Intervention
By Wayne Kreuscher
News Editor
The American people do
not know all the facts about
the United States' involve
ment in Viet Nam while
"we're sitting on a razor's
edge" in Southeast Asia, ac
cording to Sen. Wayne Morse
of Oregon.
Mores, a fourth-term U.S.
senator, spoke to some 800
people at St. Paul Methodist
Church Saturday night on the
critical aspects of America's
role in Southeast Asia.
"We're sitting on a razor's
edge. No other issue or com
bination of issues facing the
American people is as import
ant as finding an honorable
way to stop this war," he
He explained that by fight
ing in Viet Nam the United
States is in conflict with the
Geneva Conference, the
United Nations charter and
with the Southeast Asia
Treaty Organization
The Geneva Conference,
which settled the French
disputes in Southeast Asia in
the early 1950's, "did not set
up two governments in Viet
Nam, but drew at the thirty
fifth parallel a military de
campation line and s e t up
military zones," he pointed
"We set up the South Viet
Nam government while the
Geneva agreement specifical
ly prescribed against two
countries and we made a pup
pet government in South Viet
Nam," he said.
"We talk about freedom,"
he noted, "but here has not
been an hour's freedom since
we set up our puppet govern
ments, one after another in
South Viet Nam."
He pointed out that "my
government used its power to
i t
prevent free elections" in
Viet Nam under the Interna
tonal Control Commisson be
cause polls showed that the
Viet Cong leaders would win
by eighty per cent.
"By what right did we stop
these elections called for by
treaty?" he asked. He noted
that two wrongs never make
a right.
Furthermore, he said that
the Geneva agreement pro
hibited arms in Viet Nam
and that we violated these
"They know all over Asia
India, Japan, Pakistan
they all know about it, but
here in America we haven't
had the full story at any
time," he said.
The war in Viet Nam, ac
cording to Morse, is also in
violation of thirteen articles
of the United Nation's char
ter and is even "outside the
U.S. Constitution."
He said that no president
has the power to send Ameri
can boys to battle without a
declaration of war and that
the power to declare war
rests in Congress and not with
the presidetn.
Morse insisted that before
the nation continue fighting a
war that has never been de
clared, it should exhaust all
possible international ways
for peace.
However, Morse stressed
that "we can't get out of Viet
Nam now" because there
would then be the worst
blood bath in the history of
mankind between the Vietna
mese. "We should send whatever
number of divisions of m e n
necessary to Viet Nam to keep
the peace," he said.
The senator criticized
the unilateral action in Viet
Nam and said the U.S. should
v. M
go from war-m a k i n g to
peacekeeping through the
United Nations or by re-convening
the Geneva confer-
"Time is against us," he
added. "We in the U n i t e d
States don't like to think in
terms of time. We're a bunch
of over-nighters. Eventually
however, we will be driven
out of Viet Nam. And Asia
knows it."
Morse said in answer to a
question that student demon
strations are fine as long as
they remain within the law.

Shannon Says . .
Rush May Mean Forgotten Students
By Julie Morris
Senior Staff Writer
A University professor of
political science warned last
week, "We're going into a
period when both faculty and
students are likely to be for
gotten simply in the rush" of
University growth.
Dr. Jasper Shannon said
that one of the prime rea
sons he joined the Nebraska
staff in 1956 was because of
the University's "reputation
for democratic government."
Shannon praised the Faculty
Senate system.
"I'm a great believer in
self-government," he said. "I
think it is very important that
a forum exist in which things
can be discussed."
He said there are campuses
in the country that lack or
have weak faculty represen
"When you are operating a
University where you have
an autocracy without having
any representation at all you
can see the value of a senate,"
he said.
The possibility of a too
powerful Faculty Senate at
the University is "not likely
to happen," Shannon said.
"Faculty members are too
busy with their own problems
and like to forget the Uni
versity's problems."
Turning his attention to stu
dent governing bodies, Shan
non, who has taught at the
Universities of Wisconsin and
Kentucky and at John Hop
kins, said, "a group of stu
dents is a very transient
The idea's not as crazy as it may seem.
Anytime we take a jet up, there are almost
always leftover seats.
So it occurred to us that we might be able
to fill a few of them, if we gave the young
people a break on the fare, and a chance to
see the country.
The American Youth Plan
We call the idea the American Youth Plan,
and what it means is this:
American will pay half the jet coach fare
for anybody 12 through 21.
It's that simple.
All you have to do is prove your age (a birth
certificate or any other legal document will do)
and buy a $3 identification card.
We date and stamp the card, and this en
titles you to a half-fare ticket at any American
Airlines counter.
The only catch is that you might have to
wait before you get aboard; the fare is on a
standby basis.
"Standby" simply means that the pas
sengers with reservations and the servicemen
get on before you do.
Then the plane's yours.

come aware of what is going
on it's time to graduate and
it's difficult to become in
volved and retain an interest."
"There is always a mixture
of motivation" in political life
at any level, Shannon said.
"People get into these things
because it's an honor or for
personal publicity rather than
to improve the situation."
A specialist in politics, pol
itical parties and leaders,
Shannon has rubbed shoulders
with some of the great in the
political world. One of his
former students is now gov
ernor of Kentucky, Shannon's
home state.
Shannon said he has a
"speaking acquaintance" with
Nebraska Governor Morrison
and that he had "crossed the
path of Estes Keaufever in
Europe last fall."
"My business is to study
and look at leaders without
making a nusiance of my
self," the politician-scientist
said. "They're terribly busy
most of the time," he added.
Admitting that he is a
"registered Democrat" Shan
non added, "I don't hold
rigidly to any particular
political line."
Shannon's reply to the ques
tion of the "future" of the
Republican party was, "I
think the Democrats will
make enough mistakes that
the Republicans will come
back into power. That is what
normally happens.
"It is conceivable that in
1968 the Republicans may

Panel Of Four
To Discuss Asia
Four University students will
present a panel discussion on
Southeast Asia, Thursday
noon, at the YWCA World
Community luncheon.
The luncheon, which is held
every Thursday at the United
Campus Christian Fellowship
house, will be led by Cathy
Kilpatrick, Cheryl Mooney,
David Jung and Bruce Mc
Spadden. All four students attended a
seminar last week in N e w
York City and Washington,
D.C., which was sponsored by
the Fellowship of Reconcilia
tion and Methodist Student
The Feb. 17 luncheon will
be highlighted by a speaker
from the Peace Corps. Dr.
Robert Manley, professor of
history, will present a prog
ram on Nebraska at the Feb.
24 luncheon.
These luncheons are spon
sored every Thursday noon to
provide American and foreign
students an opportunity to
meet together, according to
YWCA officer JoEllen Williams.
