greater RFK support
: New York Sen.Robert F.
Kennedy's popularity among
University students apparent
ly increased as a result of
his Coliseum address Thurs
day, according tostudents
contacted this weekend.
Few students however, said
they shifted their Presiden
tial choice to the New York
Democrat because of his Lin
coln apppearance.
Of those students who fa
vored Sen. Eugene McCarthy
(Dem.-Minn.) before Ken
nedy's speech, Judy Drickey,
a junior from Omaha,
summed up the opinions of
many students who now sup
port Kennedy.
"Kennedy had more positive
and constructive things to say
and talks about more issues
than Vietnam," she said.
She said she agreed with his
labor and civil rights views
and felt McCarthy was not
seeking the Democratic Presi
dential nomination, but was
simply operating a protest
Doug Callan, a junior from
Omaha, said he previously
had supported McCarthy be
cause of a lack of familiarity
with Kennedy's views, but
now is leaning towards the
New Yorker.
Susan Emery, an Omaha
junior, who has switched her
support from McCarthy to
Kennedy, said she was sur
prised there was not a larger
anti-Kennedy contingent at
the Coliseum Thursday.
She added that she is still
watching McCarthy closely
before finally deciding upon
one candidate. j
"I didn't expect fantastic
promises from him I like
RFK because he is realistic
noted one junior female.
"No one has yet to offer
concrete solutions to many of
the nation' problems, but he
does the I . job of generally
offering tl " she added.

his youthful appearance was
a large part of his appeal to
University students.
"McCarthy I always will ad
mire for being the first to
take the big step, but dynamic
he isn't. I would have sup
ported him had Kennedy de
cided not to enter the race,
but I always thought he
Although he has heard the
Minnesotan speak, Dick Sher
man, a Lincoln senior, said
he is still uncertain of Mc
Carthy's opinions and sup
ports Kennedy views, particu
larly his Latin American program.
He added that it was vital
that both the Kennedy and
McCarthy followers unite
since the issues are far more
important than a choice be
tween the two candidates.
"I was impressed by his
Vietnam statement that all
out bombing wouldn't solve
anything," explained J e r i
Adam, a Lincoln senior with
Republican ties.
She did not feel that it was
the time nor place for Ken
nedy to stress agriculture is
sues when he spoke last week.
"Call Kennedy an opportu
nist if you want to, but he
is the only person who has
voiced his dissent with Amer
ican policies who has a chance
of winning in November," said
one senior male.
He added that McCarthy's
candidacy was only a token
movement and that he felt
now students would go over
to RFK. "Students are ideal
istic, sure, but they want to
see things happen, not just
make a big noise."

"Since I've read these things
before, I was most impressed
by lust seeing him.
Another senior female
voiced the same idea
"He's more real now. I was
for McCarthy, but as soon as
Kennedy announced his
plans, I was for him." His
speech did not sway her that
much "I had already de
cided," she said.
Among students not fa
vorably disposed toward the
Senator's talk, Lyla Hamilton,
a Lincoln junior, said she
would continue to back Mc
Carthy because she has been
impressed more by the Mc
Carthy speeches which she has
read than by Kennedy's talks.
She added that McCarthy's
chances were better in the
midwest than Kennedy's and
part of Kennedy's support
comes from the image of his
brother, the late President
John F. Kennedy.
"I was disappointed that j
Kennedy did not offer any so- i
lutions to the problems he
described," said Wayne Hin-
richs, a sophomore from Hil
dreth. Larry Pryor, a sophomore
from Omaha, said Kennedy's
address failed to alter his
views on the candidtes and
doubted the New Yorker's
chances against the incum
bent, President Lyndon John
son, in the Nebraska primary
May 14.
"I thought much more of
Kennedy after I heard him.
but I still support Lyndon
Johnson," explained Steve
Schlife, a freshman from Hub-
Among undecided students.
Hal Teague, a junior from
Scottsbluff, said Kennedy's
Lincoln speech would aid his
campaign bid in the Cornhus
ker state.
"But he really didn't tell
us anything new that he
hadn't said before he came
here," he added. '
said. "Very little i3 being
done in terms of coordinat
ing nationally right now.
"We don't have the money
to develop an intricate net of
national coordination. Those
who register in the party will
decide what the party stands
for in Nebraska."
There is no doubt that the
means for another party are
being established, and the
new members regard it as a
permanent and on-going or
ganization, he said.
"Our strongest organiza
tions are in California and
New York where there are
candidates for local and state
offices on the ballot," Haag
He added that the active
membership in California is
10,000 and that participation
in local clubs, which continue
to be the basic decision-making
bodies, will probably con
tinue to grow until November.
"Of those we have talked
to here, the reaction has cen-
erally been pood. The partici
pating response of SDS mem
bers has been especially good,
and they will probably be the
initiators of PFP action,"
Haag said.
In terms of setting votes,
organizers of the PFP are
not interested in establishing
a vote-getting machine, he
said, but they want to provide
an opportunity for those who
are against the war to voice

Organize group

Richard Nixon will be the
nation's next President, ac
cording to both young and old
Nixon supporters who attend
ed Thursday's organizational
meeting of Youth for Nixon.
The group s president, uni
versity of Nebraska law stu
dent Dan Wherry, pointed out
that although the meeting was
called on only two day's
notice about 60 students at

nal organization pledged to
support Nixon in his bid for
the presidency. The Univer
sity's group is "just getting

"We are implementing not
only for the primary but for
the November election as
well," Wherry stated. "We
are confident that Nixon
will win the nomination and
the Presidency, too.

"Wherever we have gone,"
Haag said, "we have found
people who feel essentially the
same as we do, but the ques
tion is whether they can form
a political party under their
state's legal election require
ments." Concerning Nebraska, he
said that even though the fil
ing dates for candidates to
have their names put on the
May primary ballot have
passed, there still may be a
way to get PFP candidates on
the November ballot.
Under Nebraska law, a can
didate for public office must
have filed for a place on the
primarv ballot in order to be
on the November election bal
lot, although this is not speci
fically enumerated.
"If you cannot get PFP can
didates on the ballot, you can
at least get a square on the
ballot for the party by hold
ing a convention.
This would not be as effec
tive a a candidate ... but
It wouldn't prevent you from
having a write-in campaign
so people could identify with
the national movement if they
want to," Haag said.
He added that those who are
ineligible to vote due to un-der-ace
or past criminal rec
ord, and anyone else who
wants to identify with the
peace movement, can join the

set by Joan Baez
"It is not the leaders and
the dictators, it is not God
who is going to get us out
of the bloody mess we are
in. It is only you and me,"
said Joan Baez.
Her words, as quoted by
The Resistance, a New En
gland newspaper, have set the
mood for National Draft Re
sistance Day on April 3. The
Chicago Area Draft Resis
tors, one of the most active
draft resistance groups in the
country, expects to add 20
men to the 100 previous re
sistors in Chicago.
In Boston, where the voice
of resistance has reached fe
ver pitch, 350 men of the New
England Resistance expect to
double their numbers on Ap
ril 3.
Record number anticipated
And the Berkeley Resis
tance anticipates a record
number of 1,00 new resistors
to register in the San Fran
cisco Bay Area on that day.
In Nebraska, the tone of the
movement will be somewhat
less radical since there will
probably be no draft card
burning or mass demonstra
tions. But some University mem
bers will contribute to the na
