IDA Council passes
Choice 968 resolution
. . . Offers polling space
The Inter-Dormitory Asso
ciation (IDA) Council passed
a resolution Thursday endors
ing Choice '68, a mock Pres
idential election primary for
the nation's colleges and of
fering dormitory facilities for
polling places.
The IDA thus joins four
campus organizations, The
Daily Nebraskan, Nebraskans
for Young Adult Suffrage
(NFYAS), Young Democrats
and Young Republicans, in
sponsoring the primary elec
tion after the Student Senate
voted down ASUN sponsor
Bhip March 6.
The resolution was given to
Brian Ridenour, chairman of
the IDA administrative coor
dinating committee, who said
the IDA would work closely
with the other groups in spon
soring the vote.
Ridenour, past IDA Presi
dent, said college students

God involve us.
That was how the litany of
concern was intoned at St.
Mark's - on - the - Campus
Wednesday evening. And the
pattern of responses was brok
en only by the dialogue ser
mon presented by Father
John Scott and the Rev. Ron
ald Hennies.
Both are chaplains at Kear
ney State College and had
been affiliated with the State
Boys Training School there
before they were fired for
raising controversy about the
administration of the school's
The litany, written by three
University students, asked
that people be led away
"from massive, sensational,
16-millimeter spectacles filling
the gospel gap, from love
that only strokes and smoth
ers," and from other prob
lems dealing with social in
justice, war and personal val
ues. In his part of the sermon,
Rev. Hennies' keynote was
"to live is to be spoken to,
and to be alive is to respond."
Hennies refers to boys
Rev. Hennies was referring
to the condition of the boys at
the school. He said that his
criticism of the school's pro
gram has "unwittingly em
broiled me in a conflict of
He said that his basic criti
cism of the school is that it
has become an institution
which is an end in itself hav
ing goals that are solely in
stitutional, bearing punish
ment and not rehabilitation on
the boys committed there.
"You can't realize how seri
ous the situation is unless you
know that 50 per cent of the
boys there are returnees. They
are all thrown into a popcorn
popper with no qualifications
and are expected to come out
edible products in society.
This is impossible."

In agreeing to co-sponsor
the mock election, IDA Pres
ident Bruce Bailey said the
IDA feels the topic will be
interesting for University stu
dents. In other IDA business, the
Council passed a resolution
recommending the housing of

from NFYAS to solicit funds
from dormitory residents.
Bob Beckman, NFYAs fi
nancial chairman, told the
Council his organization,
which hopes to have Nebras

to 19, would like to solicit
three days this week in the
residence halls.

Boys totally confined
'We have been cut off, and
those boys have been totally
confined in the institution. I
question if this is right to
shut them up to prepare them
to return to a 'civilized' so
ciety," he said.
Rev. Hennies said that the
institution must have more
qualified staff personnel for
the boys who now are "bet
ter teachers of each other
than the adults with whom
they have limited contact.
'Punishment is not the an
swer. They need rehabilita
tion, love, motivation , and
qualified relationships to make
them human beings, bneiving
them accomplishes less than
nothing," he said.
Ft. Scott, providing the sec

Institutions of higher educa
tion, according to Miller, have
a basic, two-fold responsibil
ity towards the nation.
The first is a commitment
to excellence, representing
discerning approaches to well
chosen goals.
This, Miller explained, will
mean relating and coordina
ting nrolects and overcoming
a tendency to react rather
than to act on the part of
institutions of higher learning,
Miller explained.
Planning Involves a dual re
sponsibility, Miller pointed
"Government, which will
decide so much by where it
puts its money, must have a
policy. The academic com
munity must do its part in
icy," he commented.

Reesa Almy, chairman of
the IDA constitutional conven
tion committee told Council
members, the committee
would report Thursday on
proposed changes to the con
stitution. He spoke of a Negro boy at
the training school who had
seen three administrators on
the same day about "getting
out," only to have his requests
forgotten because of indiffer

saying, "I don't think anyone

He explained that up to now
nobody has been willing to re
ward college and university
people in turning out to com
munity work and this has in
part produced a certain unre
sponsiveness to the surround
ing society.
"There Is a lack of estab
lished linkages between the
institution of higher learning
and the modern community,"
Miller noted.
"The disorganization of the
modern city is a challenge

He explained that govern
ment must act In face of the
chaos of the urban ghettos
and the institution of higher
learning must discover, or
ganize, and distribute the
knowledge which will be the
basis of such action.
A framework within which
innovation can be generated
is needed since the urban cy
cle is tied up with failures in
education, according to Mil
ler. "The knowledge that can
bring power to the powerless
exists, but we we of gov
ernment and we of higher ed
ucation can't seem to get
it to the right people," Mil
ler stated.

Creighton to host
rally for McCarthy
A rally of Nebraska college
students backing Sen. Eugene
McCarthy for the Democratic
nomination for president will
be held at Creighton Univer
sity Tuesday.
The rally will be held ai
7:30 p.m. in the Becker Hall
dining room, according to
Gene Pokorny, Nebraska stu
dent coordinator for McCar
thy. Appearing will be California
Congressman Don Edwards
who was the first congress
man to endorse McCarthy's
staff is not able to counter
act the influence the boys
have on each other, and that
this is the greatest single in
fluence in the controversy.
Bids are being taken on a
new $200,000 intensive care
clinic for the school, and Fr.
Scott questioned the success
of such a clinic without first
building an adequate staff.
"We haven't been able to
get a clinical psychologist
for three years. It seems to
me that you have to have a
staff first ... the time for
such a clinic is premature,"
he said.
Money needed for centers
He added that if the money
were spent to build centers in
the areas where the problems
originate, such as in the
trouble sections of Omaha,
the numbers committed to the
training school would be cut
in half.
"You can't prepare a boy
to return to a minority hous
ing section by sending him to
a penal institution," Rev. Hen
nies added. You cannot teach
boys to respond to authority
in one way and to feel an
other way."
Both men said they hope
that other people will take up
the fight to hvve the school's
program reorganized. They
called for popular support of
State Sen. Keith Carstens in
his legislative investigation
along with the study of Dr.
William R. Perl of Washing
ton, D.C.
"We have to know about
this report, and not let it get
hung up somewhere," Fr.
Scott said. "It is worthless to
spend $18,000 on an investiga
tion only to have it shelved."
Rev. Hennies said that the
only changes made at the
school since the Investigation
started, that he is aware of,
include a slight raise in some
administrative salaries and
the tightening of security.

Students majoring in agri
cultural economics may find
it difficult to obtain positions
in state government and re
lated areas where economists
are needed, according to
Clayton Yeutter, administra
tive assistant to Governor
Norbert T. Tiemann.
Yeutter, speaking before
students and University fac
ulty at an Agricultural Eco
nomics Club meeting Thurs
day night, commented, "I am
more convinced than ever that
graduate degrees should be
in economics, not agricultur
al economics." Although there
is need for economists, Yeut
ter felt that many qualified
persons may be eliminated
"because of the agricultural
in front of the 'economics.' "
The governor's assistant-
speaking of opportunities for
agricultural economics graa
uates at the bachelor's degree
or higher, outlined some of the
changes that he feels are to
appear in the near future,
plus the preparations neces
sary by students to qualify
for such opportunities.

draft policy
Cont. from pg. 1
He added that it is "a ter
rible thing to be indicted" and
to have it go on a person's
record, because the FBI will
pick up these draft dodgers
as soon as they try to g e t
back into the country.
Asked about how he felt to
wards drafting young men
first, Ligget answered:
"A young man is easier to
mold in the army than a col
lege graduate, and the ser
vices like young men. The
college grad tends to ask the
sergeant 'why' and the ser
geant doesn't like that," he
The argument goes that a
young man is less committed
than the older people who are
draft eligible, but Congress
has not seen it this way Ligget
"I see no indication that
this will change," he said. "As
we see it, it will still be the
oldest first."

management principles. Be

There will be increased op
portunities in the field of cre
dit, and Yeutter noted, "The
credit needs of agriculture are
just phenomenal, per unit . . .
Few people realize today how
big farm credit is, and how
big it will be in the future."
As a result, branch banking
may develop within the next
ten yars, with the result of
more adequate credit. This
will result in job openings
within the framework, expand
ed because "the small banks
just aren't doing their job in
building communities."
Those with graduate de
