While revolution is necessary to
reconstruct a decaying society, tactics
and leadership are a must according
to sociologist, Martin Oppenheimer.
Oppenheimer, an activist in civil rights
and peace movements, addressed the
World in Revolution conference at the
University Wednesday morning.
He warned the audience not to "cop
out" on mankind. Government is work
ing on many diversions but, "don't get
caught-up in diversions like the en
vironmental bag," Oppenheimer said.
These issues are important, but, "hit

target when talking about the environ

In Oxford, Penn., said blacks and poor
whites want a piece of society's action.
"If that society is smart it will give
them that piece of action and have
peace," he said.
OPPENHEIMER said, "Look at the
urban areas, the center of modern life.
Revolution will probably have to take
place there sometime." But, if anyone

is serious about that kind of change
he must mold tactics."
Author of the book "The Urban Guer

should establish a set power base and
leadership, decide on the method of
revolution and plan the new society to
He advocated using the "white collar
proletariat for a power base." Most
people would think the best group for
revolution would include blacks and poor
"Yet these groups are too easily
satisfied without a major change in
society and they don't communicate
well," said the former Congress on
Racial Equality (CORE) member.

the cutting-edge for a revolution but
they can't reconstruct the new society

legalize drugs, free sex. and things that
would get people to think less and less
about political aspects." Drugs, Op

the real evils that confront society.
"If you really want change, you have
to be committed."

Court delays library funds
There is no way to tell how long it may be before
a decision is reached on funds for the proposed addition
to Love Library, according to University of Nebraska Lincoln
campus president Joseph Soshnik.
Work on the addition cannot begin until the state
Supreme Court decides whether the construction appropria
tion is legal, he said. The court has been considering
the validity of the appropriation since last fall.
Soshnik explained that the bill containing $4 million
In appropriations for the $6.5 million addition passed the
Unicameral on Its first two readings by a two-thirds majori
ty. But, it only passed by a simple majority on the final
The Governor did not veto the appropriation, he said.
However, since the bill was not proposed by the governor,
the state constitution stipulates it needs a two-thirds majority
Soshnik said the question on the appropriation is whether
the two-thirds majority on the first two readings is sufficient
to fulfill the constitutional requirements.

added. But, contracts for construction cannot be let until
the appropriations question is settled.
"The impetus to wrap up specifications and plans has
to wait for the action of the Supreme Court," Soshnikv'
said. "It is really impossible to say when this action

involved in the courts, $2.5 million have been passed and
are not contested.
"There is no planning going on concerning a $2 5 million
expansion if the other appropriation is ruled illegal," Soshnik
said. "Our planning and needs are geared to a facility
of not less than $6.5 million."
He said that the feasibility of constructing a lesser
addition would have to be studied very closely Wore any
action might be taken.
