Considine: Unknown Fact
About Vietnam Victories
The fact that we are win
ning in Vietnam is one of the
least publicized and most im
portant aspects of the war,
Bob Considine, New York syn
dicated columnist said Satur
day. (St ' v

"The basic purpose of this
conference," she explained,
"is to discuss the role of stu
dent leaders in state govern
ment and state politics."
The agenda for the meet
ing, which will start Friday
evening, will include open
housing, minimum voting
age, tuition increases, the
OU-NU merger, discrimina
tion and how it can be elimi
nated, state income tax and
the role of students in state
government and politics.
Resolutions will be passed
on each of these topics, she

Considine spoke before an
American Legion Banquet at
Pershing Auditorium honor
ing the return from Vietnam
of the new American Legion
Commander Bill Galbraith of
such meeting of state college
presidents, the presidential
assistant expressed the
group's hope that the confer
ences could continue.
Miss Theisen emphasized
that each of the schools
would have equal .representa
tion at the meeting.
"We do not want any of the
schools to have a feeling of
inferiority," she said of the
smaller state colleges. "Ra
ther than harp on our differ
ences, the conference will dis
cuss common problems.
All the discussion topics
except the proposed NU-OU
merger have equal applicabil
ity to each of the schools,
"In all that is written and
said about the Vietnam war,
no one gets around to the fact
that inch-by-inch we are win
ning," Considine said.
"It is evident that we are
winning when you consider
that we have destroyed 55
per cent of their rail trans
portation and blockaded their
shipping to the point of fore
lnv them to rely on China -for
supplies," he said.
Concerning the recent Viet
nam election Considine said
that some Americans were
too quick to shout fraud.
"My own Congressman
Robert Kennedy condemned
the election a full two weeks
before it was held," Consi
dine said.
"We have got to give the
new president and Vice presi
dent a chance to get going
before . we make any judge
ment about the election," he
said. v
Considine -also pointed out
why the .bomb would be In
effective in Vietnam.
If we used a nuclear bomb
or a hundred nuclear bombs
in this war, it would only
render North Vietnam a large
crater, he said.
The same elements that are
present today would begin
seeping Into the void and be -foi-e
long the same frustrat
ing situation 'would exist, ha
Miss Theisen pointed out.
This, will enable the presi
dents to discuss common
problems, she said.
The presidents will confer
on two of the topics Friday
evening, and the rest are
scheduled for Saturday morn
Dr. Clayton Yeutter, admin
istrative assistant to Gov.
Norbert Tiemann, will speak
to the group at an informal
Saturday breakfast.
Yeutter's discussion will be
on state government in Ne
braska, Miss Theisen said.
"One or two state senators
will also have lunch with
with them," she said, "'But
this will be a discussion, not
a speech."
Following the luncheon the
presidents, who will be
housed at Schramm Hall, will
attend the Nebraska-Colorado
football game as guests of the

Lawyer Warns Greeks . . .
Return To Basic Ideals
Or Face End Of System
Senior Staff Writer
The Greek system must
return to its basic ideals or

alumni president at Kansas
State, told IFC representa

Bullock described the
pledgeship program which
has helped his chapter
climb to the top of Kansas
State's fraternities in the
last four years.
He charged that most
houses "have done just
exactly what everyone else
has been doing," and ig

lawyer, said that frater
nities have one product:
men, and one service to per
form: the process by which
these men are developed.
He urged the fraternity
leaders to develop pledge
ship programs 'to prepare
the pledges for life." Such
a program requies rededi
cation to the ideals of
scholarship, justice, friend
ship and individual merit.
"Rushing ends with initia

never does."
If the University fraterni
ties had such programs,
they would have no prob
