wants out of his contract," Gist said.
"There are several junior students
who are thinking about not signing
. There are indeed a number of
juniors who will not sign their con
tracts, said one Army ROTC student
who did not want to be identified.
"Col. Gist went around to all the
junior classes last week urging the
I 'tys to sign their contracts, or at
hast to rome in and talk to him about
f em," the student said.
Two juniors, who are now In the
process of completing their contracts,
d d go in to see the colonel, the stu
dent said. They were thinking of not
signing contracts, but the colonel
"straightened them out."
Most students who don't want to
be officers simply drop out of the
program before signing their con
tracts. They need only to complete
a drop and add form, as they would
for any other class.
T-One such student Is Chip Maly, a
fiihlor from Lincoln who was formerly
"I was patient with it for two
years," he remarked. "I didn't like
It; ' I didn't want to serve in the
military for three years. I just
couldn't live with it."
A fourth reason was that ROTC took
up important hours of Maly's time.
After switching colleges, he said he
desperately needed all the time
Another student from Lincoln drop
ped Army ROTC last year. "I'm glad
I took it," said the student, who didn't
want his name used. "I found out
what a bunch of Mickey Mouse ROTC
and the military really is."
"I didn't like the marching, I didn't
like the saluting, I didn't like saying
'sir' and I didn't want to be an of
fleer," the student said.
Jim Evinger, a student in teachers
college, took two years of Army
ROTC, but Is now considering apply
ing for conscienscious objector status.
IUs reasons for leaving the program
"One of the major reasons for
dropping was that I didn't like the
authoritarian aspects of the military,"
"I would look around at the other
people in my class and I knew these
were not the caliber of men that I
could look up to as leaders," Evinger
Academically, ROTC was very
lacking, he commented. In addition,
it just did not fit in with his future
"I hope to enter the Peace Corps
following graduation." he said. "I feel
I can serve my country far better
in there, in the Peace Corps, than
I can in the military."
While ROTC enrollment Is off, the
Army continues to depend on the pro
gram for new officers, Gist noted.
Approximately one-third of the
generals in the, Army today are pro-ducts-of
ROTC. About half of the cur
rent production of officers in the
Army and Air Force are ROTC
graduates. Approximately one-half of
the officers from lieutenants to colon
els are products of ROTC.
To help provide the needed officers
the three military leaders said they
and their departments are constantly
revising and evaluating the program

a de-emphasis of marching and other
things which smack of training are
two examples of recent changes in
the NROTC program.
The enrollment drop in ROTC is
by no means unique to Nebraska. For
instance, at the University of Soutn
Dakota, freshmen enrolees were down
73 per cest; at South Dakota
State, freshmen Army ROTC students
are down 48 per cent. The schools have
abolished compulsory ROTC for the
At Creighton University in Omaha,
enrollment totals in Army ROTC arc
down to 307 from 845 that were
enrolled last year.
"There is no doubt that the Vietnam
situation and the draft are un
popular," Gist admitted. "But there
will always be wars and there will
always be a need for the army.

Campus YD's will host
urban affairs symposium
An urban affairs symposium spons
ored by the University of Nebraska
Young Democrats (YD's) is expected
to stir controversy on race relations,
according to Mick Moriarty, public
relations director of YD's.
Omaha Mayor Eugene Leahy, Ernie
Chambers, black militant leader from
Omaha; Art May, director of the Lin
coln Action Program and Rev. Velton
Randall of the Quinn Chapel in Lin
coln are members of the symposium
to be held Thursday at 7 p.m. in
Moriarty explained that each
speaker will talk for 15 to 20 minutes
to be followed by a panel discussion
among the members with questions
coming from the audience and from
other panel members.
Chambers, who is very much op
posed to anything Mayor Leahy has
attempted in dealing with racial pro
blems in Omaha, answered the re
quest to speak at the symposium with
an eight-page letter, said Moriarty.
The letter was entitled "The Art of
Political Lying or Leahy As Another
Way to Spell Liar," according to

Mayor Leahy was elected Omaha
mayor last spring. He was graduated
from Creighton University Law School
and has previously served as a deputy
Douglas County attorney and as a
municipal court judge.
May, director of the Lincoln Action
Program, has a master's degree in
sociology and has worked nine years
as a social worker. He is interested
in urban affairs and has spent the
last four years in urban planning and
Itev. Randall is pastor of the Quinn
Chapel, located in southwest Lincoln.
He is active in the black community
and has devoted considerable time to
working with youth.
Moriarty noted there is great lack
of communication between Mayor
Leahy and Chambers.
He foresees a heated discussion in
race relations because Chambers
doesn't like the Idea of going before
a group of white people to speak.
He therefore will probably take ad
vantage of the situation to ask many
questions of the audience, rather than
wait to have the audience ask him
Tlie symposium is open to the
public. The meeting room will be en

University campus before World War
II, but the organization disintegrated
during the war years and has not
been revived until this year. East

are so few YMCA's In the state and
not many students are familiar with
their activities, He lamented the
stereotype of YMCA events as strictly
"We want to concern oursleves with
more urgent, more current pro
blems," he said. "We want to present
a new image of the YMCA, so It
can relate to college students."

need for close relationships between
the executive and legislative bran
ches." Foreign policy must take into ac
count many people and many differ
ent interests. Since government is .
responsive to the people, valid con
siderations brought to our attention
by interested citizens makes its way
into policy decisions," he said.
However, there are times when pre
determined policy guidelines do not
cover the specific situation. With
modern communications, decisions
must be made instantaneously.
Often there is not time for long
debates on what course of action to
take. It is often up to the individual
ambassador to decide based on his
own information and acquaintance
with the problem, Miller said.
"Foreign policy must be dynamic
because the situation is dynamic," ho :
explained. "It is constantly changing.
There are a number of policies to
meet given situations. Broad policies
are interspersed with many sub
policies and alternative solutions."
One problem is that of information.
Miller said that there are times when
an official must make a decision, "but
receives incorrect or incomplete in-
formation upon which to base his
"In that case, he said, "you play
it by ear."
Dr. Miller is still playing it by ear,
far away from the intrigue of in
ternational politics. He wants to hear
what students have to say during his
year, at the University, and will in
turn answer questions. '
He is currently under the jurisdic
tion of the Institute for Latin
American Studies, but will probably
teach graduate seminars for political
science students next semester.
