NSA prize-winning films to be slwivn Saturday Prize-winning films of the Second Annual National Stu dent Association (NSA) Film . Contest will be presented Sat urday, May 4, by the Union Film committee and Sheldon Art Gallery. The NSA films are an an nually presented collection of the best films submitted to the contest. Showings will be at 2, 4 and 7 p.m. Saturday May 4, and 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, May 5. In conjunction with this, the Union Film Committee is an nouncing the University of Nebraska Student Film Con test, according to Films Chair man Diane Maly. "The film contest interest meeting will be held after the final NSA winners showing Miss Maly said that any one affiliated with the Univer sity, as well as anyone from the other Nebraska colleges, "This is something com pletely new in the state," Miss Maly said that the committee did not know what to expect in the way of re sponse to the film contest. "We hope that there are sev eral people in the area inter ested in making films," she said. "Even if students have nev er previously had experience making films, they are wel come to attend the interest meeting." Making a film would be a wonderful project for the summer," she said Mrs. McCarthy urges women to be more active in politics by Jan Parks Senior Staff Writer Mrs. Eugene McCarthy add ed a feminine ingredient to the campaign stew Wednes day as she solicited women s votes for her husband in the May 14 Democratic Presiden tial primary. Speaking at an afternoon luncheon, Mrs. McCarthy urg ed the audience of house wives, career women, brides and grandmothers to take a more active part in the coun try's politics. "If we (women) don't get into the political machinery our choice will be two men chosen by people who we wouldn't let choose anything else for us," she quipped. Mrs. McCarthy pointed out that women's rights to total involvement in politics is com paratively new in the realm of history. "There has been an ebb and flow of women's political in volvement since we got the vote," she said. Since the women's suffrage amendment backroom and corridor campaigning has been replaced by luncheons and teas, Mrs. McCarthy no ted. The vote for women actual ly came from the West, she said, because pioneer women worked shoulder to shoulder with their men creating a feeling of equality between me sexes. Women are now in politics in a practical level, Mrs. Mc Carthy explained, "but we should replace our words with action." "We are here because we are concerned about the gen eration ahead of us," she said. "In their response to the Mc Carthy campaign we have found the secret of the direc tion this campaign should be taking, she said. Mrs. McCarthy, the mother of four children and a Phi Beta Kappa member, said that the McCarthy campaign is not a personal campaign. "It is crucial to many peo ple," she said, as she cited several college students who have managed a leave of ab sence from their classes to campaign for the Minnesota senator. McCarthy's decision to en ter the presidential race in November was a lonely step, she said. "But the rains came and mushrooms came up all over," Mrs. McCarthy said, noting increased National sup port for her husband. A new constituency really exists, she said. "Many Re publicans are changing their registration to cast a vote of confidence for McCarthy." Mrs. McCarthy said that her husband entered the race for President because of his objection to the war in Viet nam. The Senator feels that the war is destroying the eco nomy of the U.S. and is dis tracting America from obli gations at home and abroad, she said. Citing her husband's Con gressional record as his Pres idential qualifications, Mrs. McCarthy noted that her hus band, as chairman, oft he Committee on Unemployment Problems, gave Congress the first comprehensive picture of distressed areas, unemploy ment and racial discrimina tion in employment. I lie informal liberal group of Congressmen, called the McCarthy mavericks by the press, originated in the late fifties many of the social' wel fare proposals the Kennedy and Johnson administrations Mrs. McCarthy contended. 0 TkM Iiimm ram aaptr la all clasllM aanrtittu tj Ika Diftr Ksfcraafcm aMaaira rata al ia acr srsra aa4 mlaimam charsa at Ma aar classifl laserttaa.

Mortar Boards select Slote In an early afternoon cere mony Tuesday, Mortar Board tapped Miss Bernice Slote, professor of English, as an honorary member.

Greeks need to become more aware, involved continued from Page 1 "The attitude should not be: 'Do this, do that,' but becoming, but learning about each other as two people, not as a pledge and an active." he said. Scott, supporting the recom mendations of the Gless Re port, stated that line-ups and "trivia" errands and the like should be done away with. An emphasis should be placed on constructive' chores such as house cleaning, Scott commented. "I believe you do an excel lent job in activities," he said. Scott also cautioned, how pvpiv aeainst forcing nledees to become involved in activi ties. Houses should organize He said houses should or ganize speaker programs and base 'sneaks' on a definite purpose with actives provid ing ideas for the improve ment of the pledge class. Scholarship, Scott com mented, should be geared to the individual's level and not to the abilities of a 4.5 stu dent. He also stated that the hous should instill in its members a cooperative effort with the objective of initiating all of its pledges and not just those who prove themselves. "I think you have an obli gation to see the pledge through," he told the assem bled house representatives. "You should work with the possibility of saving people, not making a person de pledge." f Two panel discussions, one on scholarship and the other on social life and activities followed the address.

Mr. Galvn: does business have to be pressured into hiring minorities 1 -A 1 H f v 1 Dear Mr. Galvrn, Dear Mr. Kimball: Recently trie President's Riot Commisslor requested private business to provide one million more jobs for the minority and underprivileged since one of the most common complaints that arises from the ghetto is the lack of available employment. The story is familiar: inability to get a job begets a "blemished record" and those with blemished records have even less of a chance of being hired. Finally, the companies that have been most intransigent are picketted and harassed by protest groups until they change their hiring policies. But da businesses really have to be pressured by protests and boycotts to hire minority groups? What coordinated efforts are businessmen making to influence top management to adopt a more liberal policy toward hiring? Newsweek recently ran an article on the Negro businessman and the vicious circle of low income customers, inability to secure loans, and the discriminatory competition from white businessmen that he often runs into. I am well aware that discrimination is not indigenous to the business world but how can white businessmen act to help the Negro businessman out? Although business might suffer slightly at first, surely in the long run everyone would benefit Business has the chance of a lifetime to show that the profit motive does not dominate its basic social concern. The action must, however, come from within before other groups try to take the credit Is business capable of meeting this challenge? Sincerely, Ralph B. Kimball Stanford University BRIDGING THE GENERATION GAP. Concerned about campus viewpoints on business, and equally concerned that businessmen often have misimpressions of today's college students, Robert W. Galvin, Motorola Chairman, is participating in a continuing dialogue with students at four leading universities. The students, whose letters to Mr. Galvin are being published in campus papers together with his replies, are: Barbara Caulfield, Northwestern University; Ralph Kimball, Stanford University; Paul George Sitlenfeld, Princeton University; and Fred Sayre, University of Arizona. Additional topics are. being aired over college radio stations. Mr. Galvin also has visited campuses to participate in discussions aimed at furthering mutual respect and understanding. The photograph shows Mr. Galvin exchanging views with members of the Yale Management Association, I am in agreement with your feelings that discriminatory employment practices must be eliminated quickly. Big steps have recently been taken in this direction, and further immediate steps are planned. However, it would be naive to suggest that all is being done that could be done. In hiring personnel, a corporation endeavors to get the best-qualified men available at the wages it can pay. Naturally, inexperienced men, and those with no experience and no work record, frequently are by-passed in favor of men more likely to be of value to the company . . . regardless of whether or not the applicants are members of a minority. Inexperienced men in certain jobs could be potential safety hazards to themselves and others, and could lower the reliability of critical components and products. This is not to say that discriminatory practices do not exist they do. But business seems now to be accepting its part of the responsibility that we all share to eliminate discrimination pf all kinds. ss The Business Council, composed of over 100 leading corporation executives, is active in projects to help alleviate unemployment among minorities. Lockheed trains and employs people whose lack of education and experience hinders their job-finding efforts. General Telephone in Florida has long operated a program of free courses for Cuban immigrants and for Negroes unable to pass normal hiring tests. Some 85 pass after taking General Telephone's course and are then hired. The New Detroit Committee is a good example of coordinated efforts by businessmen to make unemployed persons into effective wage earners. The committee, consisting of Detroit business executives, has obtained employment for over 60,000 unskilled workers, many previously considered "unempIoyable"s Chicago's business-sponsored Jobs Now project finds jobs for youngsters unable to pass normal hiring tests many of them school dropouts. A tremendous pool of untapped talent exists in the Negro community, and progressive companies realize the advantages t themselves of providing career openings for these potentially valuable men and women. As more Negroes develop in education, skills, and ability, they will win still greater employment opportunities. Many Negro businessmen are developing a larger share of the market place by offering comparable goods and services at competitive prices. Their relationships with the busir ess community reflect only this ability to meet customers needs. In developing an enterprise, the same financial assistance is available to responsible Negro businessmen as to anyone else in business. I have obtained information from loan officers of three Chicago banks and two major loan companies, which offers assurance that they never refuse loans to anyone who can demonstrate responsibility and capability to maintain a normal payment schedule. This makes good business sense. . Most responsible business leaders today are very concerned about inequalities that have existed for years in such areas as employment, housing, education, and other discrimixiations. And they are working to right past wrongs.' Sincerely, Robert W. Galvin Chairman, Motorola Inc.
