Mrs. Jan Whitney H i b b s,
out-going president of AWS,
highlighted the major accom
plishments ot last year
Board. Among the things she
mentioned were:
Ivy Day Sing for 1965; the
Summer Introduction and
pamphlet sent out to entering
freshmen; the AWS Style
Show; the fall orientation
program; and Standards
Week ("which broadened its
scope to include all aspects
of womanhood ).
Constitutional revisions ex
tending representation to liv

cisions "suited to individual
cases"; a Coed Follies "with
more living units represented
than in past years'; and
changes in women's closing
and visiting hours and the
passage of the senior key sys
"I feel our programs have
been very, very successful,"
she said. "People now know
that AWS exists and it is pri
marily because of the interest
shown by the women students
this year."
Mrs. Hibbs suggested five
areas that could be improved
for next year including orien
tation (making it more effec
tive and positive in nature);
expansion of Women's Week;
changing the constitution to
conform with ASUN's new and
uniform provisions; making
the AWS House of Represen
tatives "a real sounding
board for the women stu
dents"; and planning Coed

The editorial noted that one
can't be sure who is respon
sible for the University's lack
in revenue, but it "should not
be the students now who are
called upon to bail the institu
tion out of its financial em
barassment." It also pointed out that "no
matter what it is called, an
increase of $40 or so for each
student next year would be a
tuition boost. It would come
on top of a $70 hike this year,
and, for all practical pur
poses, it must be viewed as

"If the problem Is to be
met by 'temporary' measures
such as special student fees,
it might be met by temporary
retrenchment in research, ex
tension service, agricultural
experiments, graduate pro
grams of limited interest or
similar functions," the editor
ial explained.
University students through
the ASUN have acted "re
sponsibly, though forcefully
in protecting a suggested 'em

the editqrial. It called the
senate's report "well docu
mented." "The students might have
noted too," the editorial said,
"that room and food rates at
University dormitories are
quite likely to be raised in
the near future to meet in
creased costs, including last
week s announced hike in in

The editorial explained that
any blame for the Univer

be shared by the Legislature
and the University adminis
tration. "The Legislature tra

REV. HUDSON PHILLIPS ... and Rev. Bruce McSpad
den discuss their new publication "Threat."
Ministers Publish
'Threat' Paper
"We are tired of giving out
piety points; we think it is
time to confront the Univer
sity community with the facts
of life as we see them," de
clared three campus minis
ters in a publication called
The paper's first issue ap
peared last week and anoth
er is planned next week. It
is published by the Rev. Hud
son Phillips, Jr., Dr. Alan
Pickering and the Rev. Bruce
McSpadden. Rev. Phillips and
Rev. Pickering are with the
United Campus Christian Fel
lowship, and Rev. McSpadden
is assistant pastor at the Wes
ley Foundation.
One of the primary reasons
for the publication of
"Threat," Rev. Phillips said,
is because the student protest
groups on campus "are be
ing left out on a limb in some
respects." He explained that
these groups say something
meaningful and they receive
no support from anyone.
"Very seldom does anybody
come out in the open. We de
cided to come out in the open
so that these students aren't
the only ones," he said.
Rev. McSpadden continued,
"We have a responsibility to
confront the University with
issues we feel are significant.
Religion Is Threat
Rev. Phillips said the min-
isters chose the name
"Threat" because "Religion
cannot be regarded as any
thing but a threat."
"If you take the Christian
faith seriously, it threatens
your ease and comfort," Rev.
McSpadden said.

tion of "Threat," Rev. Phil-i

lips noted, is the concept of
what campus religious houses
are supposed to do.
The traditional concept, he
continued, is that a campus
house of religion is designed
to minister to the members
of that faith. A more modern
view, he said, is that the
campus religious organiza
tions are designed to serve
the entire University com
munity, The paper is being published
by the ministers on their own.
Financial backing is not com
ing from any group. The

th3 thinking of three, not one
or two ministers and is not

one religious denomination or
'Hope Students Respond'
There are no students par
ticipating in the publication
of "Threat," Rev. McSpadden
said. "We certainly hope the
students will respond to it in
terms of discussion, at least,
and later writing."
Students, he added "are of
ten afraid to express them
selves forthrightly in request
to religion." Through
"Threat," he explained, the
ministers hope in part to be
able to "gain this freedom
for them" by making religion
on the campus a vital thing.
The editors introduced the
first edition with the com
ment, "We think it is time
to ask you as a student or
a faculty member at the Uni
versity of Nebraska, 'Who in
the hell we think we are."

'Chinese May Act Like
Russians In 20 Years'
By Kelley Baker
If we' can contain the Chi
nese for 20 years, they will
probably eventually act the
same as the Russians, Dr.
Soo Sung Cho said Tuesday.
Cho, visiting assistant pro-
essor of social sciences, spoke
at the second m a two part
series on the Far East.
This series was part of a
forum program- on Southeast
Asia being sponsored every
Tuesday at 4:30 in the Ne
braska Union by campus re
ligious groups.
Cho said the West could
accomplish more by accepting
the Red Chinese government
and people than by excluding
them from contact with the
rest of the world. "The atti
tude of an isolated people is
always the sime they are
trying to change the status
quo. The same situation oc
curred with Russia in 1945."
Cho proposed that the
United States might consider
expanding trade relations
with the Chinese in non-stra
tegic areas. "After all, the
lack of food is a humanitarian
problem. Perhaps we should
accept the people as well as
the regime."
When questioned on the
possibility of improving cul
tural relations, Cho replied,
"The initial stage of such a
relationship is always frus
trating ,but as long as we
open the door there remains
the possibility that they may
modify their position.
Though such relations began
with Russia on a rocky foot
ing, important exchange
have been made in several
fields. In fact, Harvard and
Columbia now have student
exchange programs with uni
versities in Russia.
As an indication of t h e
state of U.S.-Chinese relations
Cho suggested watching to
see if Red China would send

representatives to a meeting
of Oriental scholars in Ann
Arbor, Mich., during 1967.
Questioned on the probable
effects of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee hearings
on Red China, Cho replied
"The hearings will probably
change the understanding and
mentality of the American
public, but I doubt that they
will affect foreign policy."
Discussing the intellectual
class in China, Cho explained
"it is basically composed of
the college graduates and the
major issue which motivates
them is nationalism."
He pointed out that the men
who are in charge of devel
oping China's atomic bomb
and missile system were for
merly employed and educated
in the United States and have
returned to their homeland to
try to help develop it into the
Cho predicted a revolution
of the intellectual class, but
added, "I doubt that it will
come even in our generation.
But there will be a time when
people will begin to criticize.
Remember that it took 40
years for it to happen in Rus
sia." Asked to define the major
differences between Russia
and Red China, Cho broke the
topic into three parts:
First, there is an ideologi
cal difference. China holds to
the Marxian principle that
war is inevitable while Rus
sia has accepted peaceful co
existence. The Soviet Union believes
that revolution cannot be ex
ported, though the Russians
are willing to assist an indig
enous uprising. China, on the
other hand, believes in mak
ing trouble whenever possible
and profitable.
The third bone of contention
is the border dispute between
the two countries.
Commenting on the possibil
ity of escalation In the war
in Viet Nam, Cho said, "I
believe that Johnson is trying
to hold down escalation in the
war, but it usually happens
bit by bit." He suggested
"continud escalation shows
that America is having diffi
culty holding the present

bly because it is an election

trend is toward admitting her
to the organization. The last
vote was deadlocked at 47
47." "In the strict sense, the
question is not the admission
of Red China but who shall
represent China Formosa
advocates a two-China policy
while Red China claims For
mosa as an integral part of
communist China."
As a final point, Cho dis
cussed the possibility of a co
alition between the mainland
and Formosa. He mentioned
that this is a goal toward
which Red China has been
desperately working.
"Though such a coalition
will not occur within te life
time of Chiang Kai Shek, the
chances will improve after
his death." Since America de
pends on Formosa as a stra
tegic base, it will be interest
ing to note the results of such
a possibility.
