Over 600 University of
Nebraska students and faculty

Secretary of Agriculture Clif
ford M. Hardin asking him to
use his "influence in the
Cabinet and public arena to
stop this folly in Asia;"
The signers said the former

link to the center of decision
making in our government."
They asked Hardin to
"recognize that this Cambodian
adventure has aroused im
mense anxiety and suspicion
among large numbers of peo
ple, withii both the University
community and within the
larger community, and im
measurably heightened poten
tially destructive antagonism."

Nothing resolved
Sunday's town hall meeting in
the Coliseum, which should have re
solved everything about the strike,
resolved nothing. The issue at hand
was never discussed. In what may
have been a prime example of how
democracy can be subverted, a group
of students tied the meeting up in
the endless red tape of parliamen
tary procedure until the patience of
virtually every student present was
Furthermore, the meeting nev
er was controlled by the chair or
anyone else. When this situation was
at its worst, the question was called
on whether or not to continue the
strike and a secret ballot was taken.
In short, Sunday's meeting, regard
less of the number of students there,
did not solve the problem.
In all probability, students
would have voted to end the strike
at any meeting and the results will
show it. But the failure of students
to discuss the ramifications, good or
bad, of a continued strike is unfor-
; tunate. That students didn't discuss
any alternatives to an end of the
strike is disgusting. When students
left that meeting they were more
befuddled and confused about whe
ther or not the strike should be con
tinued than when they entered.
At Monday's meeting, students
must decide where to go from here.
They must decide what has been ef
fective and ineffective in protesting
the war in the last four days. They
must decide whether the student
Doay snouiu suppiui uiy xunu ui
class boycott or protest, or whether
the burden of the protest and strike
which has been carried by ASUN
should be taken up by organizations
existing for the sole purpose of car
rying on the protest. They must de
cide if the student body will endorse
a form of "individual strike" where
students committed to working for
peace full-time can arrange with
their professors to miss classes. They,
must decide if students will work to
persuade the Faculty Senate to
adopt a non-sanction attitude to
wards students who, out of con
science, continue to strike.
What is more, students should
have the opportunity to hear Randy
Reeves, Ken Wald, and Chuck Faulk
ner report from Washington. Possi
bly, more than anything else, their
report' should help students decide
what direction any form of protest
should take now.
At any rate, students must de
cide on an alternative at today's
town meeting; they cannot leave the
question up in the air. The war is"
endless and the problem may be end-,
less, but students must decide on a '
course of action. Hopefully they will
use, rather than abuse, the demo
cratic process.
