'Gas Leak' Forces Lab Evacuation 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 hood. 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 leak."

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.

He noted that the govern ment can arrest a group of people meeting without gov ernment authorization and it only takes two people to con stitute a group. The communist party is highly illegal in South Afri ca and African parties are outlawed. Carl Davidson, SDS presi dent, explained that South Af rica is a parallel with a Fas cist police state, and that it is an "outrage, morally and politically." Geographic isolation cuts off much of South Africa from the outside world. "The white minority is extremely afraid that if communication is established among the na tives, the whole thing will go up," Kittams said. A film shown before the discussion was a travelogue showing the economic growth but little about the growing pains or the desire of the na tives for independence. The next discussion on the contemporary problems in Af rica is scheduled for the end of March and will deal with Rhodesia. TOrTVW).; 53E " - " ' f v' m n j STUDENT LEADERS . . .

Draft Tests To College The National Selective Serv ice has announced that col lege qualification tests will be given May 14 and 21 and June 3. However, State Selective Service director Gen. Guy N.

Henninger explained that the qualification tests will be optional for students who wish to have this criteria available in addition to grade standings for the local draft boards in determining student defer ments.

T 1 ? ?' .1 ' , 1 To Be Given Men In May Officials have expressed varying reactions, including outright opposition, to tighten ing student draft deferment requirements. 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 tests. 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 the Korean War, students wer required to receive at least a 70 on the qualification test in order to receive a student deferment. Dr. Floyd Hoover, Univer sity registrar, has indicated that the University will coop erate with the Selective Serv ice in providing class stand ings, noting that the Selective Service could force students to get their class standings for use by the local boards. Draft Call Cut The Nebraska draft call for March has been cut from 263 to 183, Henninger said. , This is in line with a 10,- Cont. on pg. 3, col. 7 pa Delta; Jeani Hoff master, Alpha Phi; Kay Huffaker, Zeta Tau Alpha; Lynne Irish, Kappa Kappa Gamma; Karen Johnson, Kappa Alpha Tneta; Di Kosman, Delta Gamma; Margie Lehl, Alpha Omicron Pi; Sue Leonard, Chi Omega.
