Indonesian Students: Try Sukarno
Thousands of Indonesian university
students defied a ban on demonstrations
and staged a mass meeting Monday on
the eve of a special session of the In
donesian Congress which will decide the
fate of President Sukarno.
The students called for Congress to
dismiss Sukarno who is now president in
name only and order courts to try him
for his alleged complicity in the abortive
1965 Communist coup.
Congress convenes today to discuss a
proposal that Sukarno be tried for treason
and dismissed from the presidency. Su
karno handed over all executive authority
to strongman General Suharto last month.
Meredith To Oppose Harlem's Powell
Republican leaders have named
James H. Meredith, first Negro to attend
the University of Mississippi, to oppose
Adam Clayton Powell for Congress in a
special election April 11.
The choice jolted politicians of both
parties. It had been predicted that the
Republicans would have little luck in find
ing a Negro of stature to run against
Powell, who was excluded from Con
gress last week.
Meredith conceded he might be
scorned by Harlem Negroes In opposing
their hero. However he said he thought
he would make a better congressman than
Meredith said he was an enrolled
Democrat but considered himself an in
dependent. Chosen
Meredith was chosen by eight Repub
lican assembly district leaders. All the
GOP county committeemen will meet lat
er to confirm the decision.
Meredith said he agreed to make the
race after being assured that the
campaign would be conducted on issues,
that he was the consensus of the com
mittee, that he would get adequate finan
cial support and that he could get a leave
of absence from Columbia Law School
Bill Reforms Mental Commitment
State lawmakers gave final legisla
tive approval to a major bill reforming
Nebraska's mental commitment law.
Sponsors hailed the action as signal
ing a new era in the pre-institutionalized
handling of the mentally sick.
"It takes the state out of the dark
ages," commented Sen. Calista Cooper
Hughes, a co-introducer of LB108.
Passage of the proposal came on a
47-to-0 vote. It now goes to Gov. Norbert
Tiemann for review. The bill provides that
persons taken into custody for a mental
commitment hearing shall not be detained
in a jail unless other facilities are not
available to offer protection to the sub
ject or the public.
Under present law, such persons are
automatically held in jail until after a
hearing is held to determine their mental
The reform measure Is the first time
the 65-year-old mental commitment stat
ute has been updated.
The bill grew out of an 18-month stu
dy of mental health laws. It is one of a
series of proposals designed to modernize
The legislation was opposed originally
by members.
Tax Bill Reported Out Of Committee
Gov. Norbert Tiemann's income-sales
tax bill was reported out of the Revenue
Committee Wednesday and headed to
ward its first encounter with all 49 sena
tors. After a flurry of last-minute major
amendments to LB377, Sen. Jules Bur
bach expressed hope that debate could be
gin next Tuesday.
The committee gave unanimous ap
proval to the measure but Burbach cau
tioned that this did "not necessarily"
mean all members supported its provi
sions. Major changes in the bill include
A proposed personal income tax
based on a flat percentage of Federal in
come due after deduction of income from
U.S. Government securities.
The personal income tax rate to be
determined annually by the State Board
of Equalization after appropriations are
A corporate income tax imposed on
corporations whose business consists ex
clusively of foreign commerce or inter
state commerce.
A franchise tax on all other cor
porations in the state.
A franchise tax on state and na
tional banks based on Federal taxable in
come. A franchise tax on the taxable In
come of corporations organized as co-operatives.
Only the 2.5 percent rate for the sales
tax portion of the bill remains the same
as Tiemann's original proposal
Burbach estimated that because sev
eral exemptions included in the Gover
nor's proposal were left out, the total
sales tax take could rise above the origi
nal estimate of $50 million a year.
cations that he was losing
popularity, Charles De
Gaulle appears to have kept
his parliamentary majority
intact, following the first
round of French national
elections last Sunday.
Nearly 80 per cent of
France's eligible voters
went to the polls In those
first round elections, which
serve a function similar to
American primaries. Only
about 60 of the 486 Nation
al Assembly seats were fin
ally determined in the first
Gaullists captured a
greater percentage 38 per

strength of General De
Gaulle's bloodless settle
ment of the Algerian con
flict. If this proportion holds
through Sunday's second
round, DeGaulle is expect
ed to have the same strong
parliamentary base for
what his critics call his
"personal rule."
This second round could
bring some surprises. The
choices the voters have
may be somewhat altered

ones offered by coopera

A French political com
mentator termed the De
Gaulle victory, "the third
round", a phrase which
may become a new addi
tion to country's political
He was referring to th
two-round presidential con
test of 1965, when DeGaulle
was returned to office by a
less decisive margin. The
March 5 vote is a confir
mation of that victory.
Gaullists had indicated
growing concern about their
majority in the weeks pre
ceding the election. On
bourg indicated that they
would suffer a setback in
the election.
Francois Mitterand, lead
er of the Federation of the
Democratic Left, joined
several leftist leaders in
speaking out on the possi
bility of the Left actually
taking power.
Guy Mollet, Leader of the
Socialist Party within th
Federation, and Waldeck
Rochet of the Communist
Party also spoke in the
same vein.
Showpiece of the whole
campaign was last week's
debate at Grenoble between
Gaullist Premier, Georges
Pompidou, and former Pre
mier Pierre Mendes-France,
candidate in Grenoble for
the leftist Unified Socialist
It highlighted the profound
difference between the Gaul
list and opposition concepts
of government.
Gaullists favor the presi
dential system as known in
the United States, but sub
ject to DeGaulle's adapta
tions. The opposition favors
a return to a strict parlia
mentary system similar to
the one in practice in Bri
tain. At Grenoble, the opposi
tion appeared to have
scored a marginal victory.
Mendes-France asked if the
Gaullists would step down
if they were defeated.
Pompidou claimed Mendes-France
was begging the
question since the opposi
tion was "far from a ma
jority." He countered by
saying that should the op
position gain a majority,
it would itself be so divid
ed that France would be
returned to a conflict of
parties, again.
But from all signs it ap
pears that Charles DeGaul
le and not the opposition
parties will still control the
National Assembly after
Sunday's elections.

A bill backed by Terry
Carpenter aimed at limit
ing University tuition rates
was accepted Thursday for
introduction into the Legis
lature. As it stands now, the bill,
LB861, provides only that
the University and the four
state colleges may not raise
tuition without legislative
consent, but Carpenter said
that there is a possibility of
an amendment to the bill
that would set a formula
determining tuition rates.
Policy Decisions
If the amendment is add
ed, the bill would apparent
ly pre-empt a pending reso
lution, LR6, which set a
policy decision on tuition
rates, but which Carpenter
says is not a strong enough
LR6 would declare it a
state policy that residents
at the University and the
state colleges pay not more
than one-third of the costs
of their education. The reso
lution was introduced by
Sens. Ross Rasmussen and
Richard Marvel. A similar
resolution failed to gain ap
proval in the 1965 legisla
tive session.
The bill was okayed for
introduction Thursday, a
procedure necessary since
the time for bill introduc
tions closed Jan. 20, - was
brought to the floor by the
Education Committee,
which had previously ap
proved LR6.
The resolution, scheduled
to come up for floor debate
Monday, could be held by
the lawmakers until LB861
is ready for discussion, or
the resolution could be de
feated altogether. Another
possibility, according
to Rasmussen, is that law
makers would agree to
strike the resolution in fa

Carpenter's move was de
signed to set legislative con
trol and policy on higher
educational institution tui
tion rates in the state. Car
penter said he objects to
Gov. Norbert Tiemann's
recommendations that Uni
versity tuition go up next
fall so that students would
be paying 37 per cent of
the cost of their education.
