THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Singh cites needs
for m inority voice
by Susie Jenkins
Nebraskan Staff Writer
Foreign students at the University
ere usually graduate students, fairly
ur nvolved with any campus activities
01 !side of their major f iesds.
Malaysian Bacchitar Singh is an
exception. He is the first foreign stu
snt in recen; years to run for ASUN
Student Senate as a candidate from
the college of arts and sciences.
"I'm not running just to represent
foreign students but I know more
about them because I am one," Singh
"I come from a place where there
's need for such organization but no
opportunity to let yourself go," he
said. "This is not to say I am a
miracle worker. Being a good senator
takes guts and hard work."
MINORITIES ON campus have
never been given a chance to take
part m University decision making,
"Whites have set up the Human
Nights committee, but the minorities
have not gotten Involved in working
on their own problems," he said. "Any
group can have reasonable power if
they are united and organized. In
dividuals are insignificant. To succeed
you must have the group."
Singh criticized recent student
demonstrators for disorganization and
the University officials for being un
rrepared to cope with potential prob
lems. "Things are going to come here,
but revolution is the last straw, not
the first," Singh said. "Kids here
haven't been exposed to the problems
of student power, and they don't know
what's coming . . ."
"STUDENTS DESERVE to have
power clear to the reasonable limits,
but demonstrations don't give you the
quietness of the mind," he said. "This
is not a battlefield. Revolutions need
organizing step- by step," he warn
ed, Singh predicted that major pro
blems would come to the University
because of unpreparedness.
"Such movements always start with
innocent things." he said. "There has
been a 15-year lapse in progress, and
it just takes too long to catch up.
"For any new change, 'you have
to sacrifice a generation. Maybe we
are it," he said. "The faculty (and
administration) is too scared because
we know what we want."
SINGH SAID noted that problems
on campuses have arisen because

"This is a university by name, not
by character," he said.
Singh urged that a step-by-step
method is necessary to improve the
University. This is whv he is running
for senate, he said.
Like many American students,
6ingh noted that apathy and lack of
communication hinders Student
'ASUN IS now a paper tiger," he
said. "Senators get elected and then
forget the students who elected
He also thought that the majority
of American students "don't know
what's going on" in regard to student
"I asked some American students
to help with my campaign and found
out they don't even know what ASUN
is," he said.
Singh hopes to bring the senate to
the students by holding meetings and
in the dorms and conducting question
answer sessions involving all the
senators if he is elected.
"WHEN YOU see things in front
of your eyes, you become involved,"
he said. "But if you're looking for
miracles, there are no miracles."
Singh hopes to attract students to
involvement "in their minds,"
because those who are emotionally
involved forget ideas.
"Once you get someone bugged In
his mind, he's going to think," he
"Student leaders here are either
cynical about the Nebraska attitude,
or simply study here and leave the
state. It's a real brain drainage," he
The University is a stage for real
life, Singh said. Students should use
it to develop ideas and themselves.
"Knowledge is power," he said.

Yale faculty removes
ROTC academic credit
(IP.) The Yale College faculty
recently voted to remove academic
credit from the Army and Navy
Reserve Officers Training Corps pro
gram and proposed that ROTC be
given the status of extra-curricular
.The two ROTC commanding officers
at Yale, Colonel Richard R Irving,
of the Army unit, and CaDtain
Williams E. Simmons, of the Navy,
have expressed concern about the
future of ROTC programs here
without academic credit. Both have
predicted a decrease in ROTC enroll
ment possibly to a point where the
Department of Defense would not
consider it worthwhile to continue
units at Yale.
Another issue is whether ROTC can
continue legally without academic
credits. Federal regulations call for
"appropriate academic credit" from
the colleges and universities where
ROTC units are based.
Many feel, however, that a com
promise can be worked out. Regular
college courses with academic credit,
such as in engineering, history, and
