church's attitude.
Campus churches are open

the war in Viet Nam, support
ing black power and holding
folk masses.
"New morality" is the
catch phrase of the hour.

campus following.
"Is God dead?" they ask.

in my daily life," a c o e d
"Religion is sort of irrele
vant to problems of people
and life," stated one student.
"This is a big transition
period in the Church. We
have had a highly
standardized approach to
Catholic worship. Now there
is a certain measure of con
fusion, but also a measure
of enthusiasm," declared

Wayne Kreuscher, Nebras

Friday by the Publications
Board for a second semester.
Kreuscher, a junior from
Lincoln majoring in journa
lism, has previously been
news editor and senior and

worked for the Lincoln Star
as a reporter.

"I would guess the alcohol
has killed a lot more peo
ple than LSD," he said.
"The facts probably are
that it is not as risky to
take the drug as people as
sume," he added.
One of the main problems
with LSD as it now stands
is that too little Is known
about it to be really sure
just what the effects of pro
longed usage are.
"All the legitimate sources
have been cut off and we
cannot be sure of the quality.
Currently there are no pharm
aceutical houses permitted' to
manufacture LSD. It is
a very complex problem to
who marks student at
tendance at services as some
1,250 every Sunday.
Rev. G. H. Peck of St.
Mark's on the Campus said
that there is a plea today
to recognize the relevancy of
the church. He noted that
this has been a problem
since the first century.
"While the church" may
need to get its message
across more effectively, the
listener must make an ef
fort too," stated Rev. Peck.
He noted that sometimes
people protest so loudly that
nothing is being said, that
they never hear it if some
thing is said.
"It's not a matter of the
church discarding, but of be
ing understood," he con
tinued. Rev. Charles' Stephens of
the Unitarian Church, ex
plained that "science has
done away with God." He
called the Father-type of God,
"irrelevant and immature as
a concept."
"It's the old problem of
making religion relevant,"
Rev. Stephens said concern

He noted that there are
some groups on campus
which use marijuana quite
freely because it is easy to

whole, the scene here is quite.

Brown Presents Points Of Conflict
Between Rules, ASUN Rights Bill
Eleven possible points of
conflict between existing Ad
ministrative policies and the
proposed ASUN Bill of R;Ufs
were presented at a joint
meeting of the Committee uA
Student Affairs and the
ASUN Student Conduct Com
mittee Friday.
The statement was drawn'
up by Russell Brown, admin
istrative assistant to the
Dean of Student Affairs, as
a "point of departure" for
the work of the two groups.
"It is a point of focus for
the Affairs committee to use
in understanding the bill of
rights and for the Conduct
committee to see what the
existing policies are," Brown
"Some of the points in the
statement come from Re
gents by-laws or from the
Campus handbook. They are
used to show the policy con
flict with what I think the
Bill of Rights aims at. Oth
ers are my own interpreta
tion of the conflict,"
he stressed.
Brown stated that he could
not predict how the conflicts
will be resolved.
"I don't think anybody can
say right now. This is why
the Conduct committee is
meeting with the Affairs
committee. I feel that the
goals of these meetings are
to develop an understanding
of the Conduct committee's
outlook and the existing pol
icies of the University," he

tortion. At times they may

grating, he said.
In addition, many users of
LSD undergo a mystical ex
perience in which they feel
they know God and in which
they may experience a feel
ing of pure love for their
fellow men.
He noted that there are
some similarities between the
fundamentalist Christ ians
who have just been "saved"
and users of LSD on a "trip."
Dr. Cannon commented
that one of ths most harm
ful effects for the drug, in
his opinion, is that the real
Schulze designed the first
draft of the Bill of Rights
as a working paper. He pre
sented it to the Affairs com
mittee to inform it of his
committee's intent and pur
poses, and to ask for help
in developing a final copy."
Included in the list of pos
sible points rf conflict is a
statement pointing out that
specific rules and regulations
for students are currently in
"There may be some ques
tion as to whether all these
statements meet the criteria
of being clear and concise,"
the statement continues.
This point refers to a point
in the Bill of Rights saying
that a student, upon entering
the University, would receive
a clear and concise statement
of his contractual obligations
and responsibilities to the

of LSD. They have little con

part of day to day existence.
"This is what scares me",
he said.
Cannon also questined the
reliability of reactions in
what is basically an intoxi
cated state.
"A person can get a lot
of answers when he is drunk
but when he is sober 95 per

do not stand the light of

their own living accommoda
tions, the Regents By-Laws
specify that all unmarried
undergraduates are required
to live in housing approved
by the dean of student af

dicates that conflicts could
prise over provisions in the
Bill of Rights allowing stu
dents to determine what com
prises his permenant record,
and what does not, as the
Regents rules already ident
ify what comprises a s t u
dent's record.
Another area of the state
ment says that "institutional
authority (may) not be used
merely to duplicate the func
tion of general laws" which
in itself agrees with the Stu
dent Bill of Rights.
Discussion on the p o i n t,
however, indicates that con
flict arises over whether Un
