Pledging to provide not less than $50 to support Eugene Mc
Carthy's candidacy in the May 14 Nebraska Democratic prefer
ential primary, each member will enlist one or more additional
persons in this effort.
Protessoi of Physics, Bill Campbell chairman of finance for
the Uni'-ersity Committee of Fifty, pointed out that if 100 people
are enlisted to pledge, $5000 will be earned for the primary.
If a fair sum of money is raised, a force of student workers
will wage a New Hampshire-style campaign, according to Nebras
kans for McCarthy headquarters.
Realizing that support for McCarthy outside the University
may not be enough to contribute substantially, the committee be
lieves that there is enough support within the University alone
to launch a successful campaign.

'grass roots' politics
by Andy Cunningham

The ipontaneity and popularity
that have characterized Senator
Eugene McCarthy's presidential
campaign are proving that "grass
roots" politics does work in Ameri
ca, according to two students at
tached to McCarthy's campaign.
Andy Effron, a McCarthy volun
teer and Bob Krim, who is pre

paign and is also covering it for
the Harvard Crimson both said the
campaign is unique because it is
the result oi popular interest and
not of structural organization with

In Lincoln to sense the political
mood of the campus and town in
light of the upcoming presidential
primary, the two Harvard sopho
mores said that they could see the

a substantial Republican write-in
indicates that the people "were
not only voting against Johnson
but also for McCarthy the man,
his low-key style and his sincer

candidates do not offer a choice,
but that the Democrats offer the
alternative, was prevalent, Krim
"What happened in New Hamp
shire," Krim noted, "is a good in
dication that there are a lot of
liberals who feel no need for par

"A party can be turned around
by the sheer force of conviction of
its members "
The characteristic which distin
guishes McCarthy's support from
that of President Johnson's is pre
cisely the ground-level backing
which McCarthy has and which
the President lacks, according to
"You see party members for

against underestimating the Presi

Krim said that Senator Robert
Kennedy's entry into the presiden

Carthy's position stronger.

Kathy Riesselman, a Smith Hall

Miss Riesselman explained.
She felt that it is "fine for AWS

Aita said, "I strongly feel that be

Ellen Pilmer. also a Smith can

saying, "1 think the key system or
some other form of extended hours
should definitely be extended to
sophomores and probably second
