Carpenter To Talk
At Selleck Tonight
Supports Use
Of Student Spies
Senior Staff Writer
The problem of drug abuse
in Nebraska is serious enough
to require the use of under
cover agents, State Sen. Ter
ry Carpenter said Sunday.
Carpenter, who will talk
with interested University stu
dents Monday evening at Sel
lect Quadrangle at 8 p.m., is
supporting the use of so-called
"student spies" on state cam
puses. "Most everybody has a re
vulsion for such agents," the
Scottsbluff citizen said, "and
I can understand that."
But, the indication of mari
juana investigations this
month point to a large prob
lem, the Senator said.
The Drug Control Division
of the State Patrol is in "the
process of completing pre
liminary organization," Car
penter said, and drug abuse
has been found to be "bigger
than what we expected."
Carpenter said that the
problem of drugs has been
played down and that few peo
ple realize the scope of that
Carpenter suggested using
"student spies" on campus
over a week ago when he re
quested Attorney "General
Clarence Meyer's opinion on
financing undercover agents
through the Drug Division's
$100,000 budget. Meyer said
that the funds could be used
for such agents.
Since that time five s t u -dents
at Nebraska Wesleyan

"We do not feel that napalm
is legitimate."
According to Littrell the
demonstrators hope to ac
complish two purposes. First,
they want to disseminate in
formation about napalm to in
form Nebraskans of its use.
Second, they hope that stu
dents who are planning to
work for Dow will consider
Dow's stand in the Vietnam
war before joining the com
pany. Littrell stated that the dem
onstrators did not expect any
pended from school in connec
tion with use and possession
of marijuana.
Lincoln police also arrested
seven people and placed two
more "subject to call" Friday
for using marijuana. None
are University students.
"It is not only the younger
people who are involved,
either," Carpenter said. He
said that there are adults in
my country (western Nebras
ka) who use drugs.

to teach their children mod

like it, and then there is a
"I can understand how
some young people can want
to (experiment with mari

young once, too."
But they know that mari
juana is illegal, he said, and
the law should be enforced.
"Most people are against
the use of the agents," he
Carpenter favored use of
the agents to the ful'cst ex

more difficult to convict any
one of anything," he said.
"That is the reason for the
unrest in this country."
