For Legislative, Conduct Work
Student conduct and legis
lative liason are two areas
which have been the subject
of much discussion already
this year.
ASUN has included, in their
committee structure, two
committees to deal specifical
ly with these topics. On Sat
urday and Sunday, interviews
were held for the chairman
ships of the Student Conduct
and Legislative Liason and
Research Committees.
Curt Bromm was chosen
chairman of the Legislative
Liason and Research Commit
tee. His appointment must,
however, be approved by the
Senate at their meeting on
Wednesday. Chosen chairman
of the Student Conduct Com
mittee was Dick Schulze.
"The primary purpose of
the Legislative Liason Com
mittee, as I see it at the mo
ment, is to convey the needs
and desires of the students
and faculty to the legisla
ture," Bromm explained.
"This would be done in hopes
that we could help them ar

"It would be foolish to talk

continued Schulze.

'Dog Dead'
Following the Sept. 6 assas
sination of South African
Prime Minister Hendrik Ver
woerd, Wandera hung a sign
reading, "Dog Dead, South
Africa" from the window of
his apartment on 25th and
Iloldrege Streets.
Verwoerd, Prime Minister
since 1958, was regarded as
the architect of South Africa's
policy of apartheid-racial sep
aration. He was. stabbed to
death as he sat on the mini
sterial bench in the Parlia
mentarian chambers in Cape
The assassin was a white
man, Dimitrio Tsafendas, who
had been employed about a
month earlier as a messeng
er in the chambers. Tsafen
das apparently took Verwoerd
completely by surprise as he
plunged a knife into the
prime minister's chest and
throat. Tsafendas was imme
diately seized by other mem
bers of Parliament as Ver
woerd slumped over dead.
Verwoerd's successor, Bal
thazar John Vorster, was un
animously named the new
Prime Minister last week by
the ruling Nationalist Party
caucus, which consists of 126
MP's and 41 senators. Vorst
er is known as a militant sup
porter of the apartheid poli
cies. 'Inhuman'
Discussing his feel
ings about the assassination
and the accession of Vorster,
Wandera said, "I think Ver
woerd was inhuman." The as
sassinated prime minister,
Wandera said, "didn't have
any respect for human be
ings." Stressing that his comments
were "just my feelings, not
facts," Wandera said that the
only thing Verwoerd did for
South Africa was "to put
people on trains and ship
them off to the mines and to
build beautiful buildings, but
only for the use of a small

Be-bop marked the transi

the late 1940's and early
1950's. Charlie Parker and
Dizzie Gillespie are two
names that stand out from
this period.

"There is something so fun

Wandera said, "that we are

"Our people would rather
die than have anything to do
with South Africa, I would
rather import a product from
Japan at any price than im
port it from South Africa,"
Wandera said.
The political reality of a
black South African is actu
ally nonexistent. The blacks,
while they far outnumber the
white Afrikaaners and other
English-speaking people of the
country, are regulated in
nearly every step of their
lives. Black South Africans
must carry identification
cards with them at all times
and are subject to a host of
restrictive policies and laws.

said, "if a white person wants

"If anything, a change

policies," he said.

According to Carl A. Donaldson, University business

will be finished in a few weeks.
Donaldson said that the ventilating duct work which is
presently cluttering the lawn outside the building will re

most since the time it was built.
Donaldson said that they have been able to "work

are looking forward to the improvement.
