'Gas Leak'
Forces Lab
A supposed gas leak which
caused the evacuation of Av
ery Lab Friday afternoon and
brought fire and gas trucks
to the University has been
termed a false alarm.
Dr. Norman Cromwell,
chairman and professor of
chemistry, said that the gas
smell was found to be only a
problem of ventilation.
"We evacuated the building
from about 1 p.m. until 2 p.m.
before we finally figured out
the cause of the smell," ex
plained Cromwell.
According to Cromwell, the
supposed gas leak was caused
in one of the laboratories by
a sulfur compound which is
used to put an obnoxious odor
in natural gas so that leaks
in gas lines can be detected.
The compound had been used
correctly, and the fumes were
eliminated by a ventilating
However, an east wind
picked up these fumes and
Mew them up to the roof of
the lab, where they were
drawn In by the building's
ventilating system and recir
culated throughout the lab.
"We were very concerned,
because a few months ago,
we did have a serious gas
leak in the tunnels outside the
building," Cromwell said.
"Something will have to be
done to the ventilating sys
tem so that we can always be
sure when we do have a gas

can students, Edson Nyama
fene, an African student at
Nebraska Wesleyan, and Dave
Kittams, chairman of the
YMCA committee, led the dis
cussion. Only about $18 per child is
spent on education each year
in South Africa. The empha
sis is upon tribal custom and
they want to revive every
thing that was there before,
Maryogo said.
Obioha described the gov
ernment as a concentration of
power structured like Rho
desia's government, an open
ly white supremist govern
ment. The government made
eight different tribal entities
for all Africans.
Tribal chiefs are appointed
by the government to rule
the African community. It Is
the only political responsi
bility of the African people

To Require 3.0

Board has been set at 3.000
cumulative average on the
new grade point conversion,
according to Barb Beckman,
Mortar Board.
Due to a mechanical error,

According to Miss Beck
man, most Mortar Board
chapters at Universities with
a 4-point grading system use
the 3.0 average for eligibility
in the honorary.
"This semester, we will use
a combination of the old 9
point scale and the new sys

eligibility," Miss Beckman
said. "Last semester's aver
age will be taken into consid
eration when the old accumu
lative average was between
a 6.4 and 6.6," she explained.

Officials have expressed
varying reactions, including
outright opposition, to tighten
ing student draft deferment
In the past, students had
been deferred if they were
carrying a full-time course
satisfactorily. However, re
cently Gen. Lewis Hershey,
national Selective Service Di
rector, announced that stu
dent deferments would be ex
amined with consideration be
ing given class standings and
scores on the qualification
Henninger had said earlier
the decision would be left up
to local boards whether to use
class standings, the grades on
the qualificatoin test or a
combination of both. During

required to receive at least
a 70 on the qualification test

Dr. Floyd Hoover, Univer

that the University will coop
erate with the Selective Serv

Service could force students
to get their class standings
for use by the local boards.
