which students could participate.
By Wednesday afternoon over 2,700
letters had been mailed from the Union
to inform representatives in Washington
of student feelings on the Indochina
crisis. Paper, stamps, envelopes and
addresses are all being provided.
ALSO, SEVERAL hundred students be
gan canvassing Wednesday afternoon in
Lincoln, Omaha and Grand Island, ac
cording to Phil Calandra, an NU student.
Canvassers, after receiving information
on the Indochina war, are discussing
the situation with citizens in the com
munities. Canvassers are also explaining the NU
student strike and especially urging
citizens to write to their Congressmen
on the Indochina war, Calandra said.
The Student Strike Committee has also
written a petition urging that the United
States Congress take immediate action
because of President Richard M. Nixon's
recent expansion of the war in In
dochina. Students may sign the petition
in the Union.
The ASUN Strike Committee is also
sponsoring Political Education Seminars
to begin the task of self-education.
Speakers are appearing in the Union
and at many living units.
"WE DID not call this strike to stop
learning, but to begin: What do vou
know about Vietnam?" said an ASUN

began receiving calls Wednesday, said
Margie Griffin, chairman of the ASUN

like to receive comments, questions or
complaints about any activities con

Miss Griffin also aid that Richard E.
Gilbert, professor of chemical engineer
ing, and chairman of the faculty liaison
committee, confirmed that no sanctions
can be taken against a student who
misses classes.. Any actions that might
be taken against a student should be
called in to the complaint committee.
The number is 472-2581.
Students also began "picketing"
Wednesday. Chuck Rucker, an NU stu
dent in social welfare, emphasized that
'picketing" means students are
distributing materials to try to inform
more students about the strike.
"These students are in no way trying
to stop students from going to classes
or intimidating them," Rucker said.
AN EFFORT is also being made by
letter to get cooperation from Lincoln
churches in discussing the Indochina
situation, he said.
Rucker also noted that the presidents
of the dormitories have formed a strike
coordinating committee. The committee
is attempting to achieve wide-spread
distribution of printed materials in
residence halls. The hub of the activity
is at the Smith Hall switchboard.
