student body to express its opinion on the "Joint Treaty of
Peace Between the People of the United States and the People
of South Vietnam and North Vietnam."
The treaty will be put on the April 7 ASUN Spring General
Election ballot so students can either vote to support or reject
THE RESULTS will not bind the University to support of
the treaty. It will merely be used as an indication of student
opinion, according to Nebraskans for Peace member Bill
The Treaty resulted from efforts by the United States
National Student Association (USNSA) of which the
University is a member.
According to a USNSA pamplet, student delegations were
sent to Hanoi, Saigon, and Paris last year. The delegations,
which were organized by USNSA, met with the North
Vietnamese National Student Union, the South Vietnamese
Liberation Student Union, the South Vietnamese National
Student Union, and Vietnamese in Paris.
BASED ON the areas of agreement between the various
groups, a "common declaration of peace" was written and
agreed to by the Vietnamese organizations and the
This is the document that will be voted on by University
Be it known that the American and Vietnamese people are not
enemies. The war is carried out in the names of the people of the
United States and South Vietnam but without our consent. It
destroys the land and people of Vietnam. It drains America of its
resources, its youth and its honor.
We hereby agree to end the war on the following terms; so that
both peoples can live under the joy of independence and can devote
themselves to building a society based on human equality and
respect for the earth.

Vietnam and publicly to set the date by which all American forces
will be removed.

Tenants, students air housing gripes
The University was taken to task
Wednesday by representatives of low income
tenant organizations and ASUN.
In a special news conference at the
Lincoln Center Building, the groups called
for the University to build more housing for
Sandie Springer, chairman of the tenant
advisory committee to the Lincoln Housing
Authority, noted at this time
approximately 50 per cent of the Housing
Authority houses are being rented to
She said the committee feels the
University should ""live up to its
responsibility to its married students" and
provde them with low rent housing. This
would free the Housing Authority to provide
more housing subsidy for low income
families, Springer said. "
SHE ADDED THAT a student family
without children can get housing from the
Authority, but that a married low income
couple without children cannot.
Bill Arfman, a student senator and
chairman of the ASUN Human Rights
Committee, said that the University provides
only 57 living units for married students.
There are over 4,000 married students, he
The University must accept the
responsibility of caring for students' needs
and controlling their impact on the Lincoln
housing market, he said.
"It seems clear that the University, in
fulfilling these responsibilties, must see to it
that an adequate number of housing units
are built to house most of its married
students and to alleviate some of the
tightness in the Lincoln housing market,"
Arfman said. "Building is the only long
range solution to the problem."
BETTY DOYLE, president of Home and
Neighborhood Development, also called on
the University for relief, "If the University
would make dormitory living appealing
enough to students and require that tney live
in dorms, we would not have to put up with
the desperate shortage of housing we have
In response to a question, Ron Kuhn, a
student speaking for the Air Park Citizen's
Association, accused the University of
refusing to realize there was a problem
"But, as long as the Housing Authority ives
first priority to students, the Universi y has
no problem," he added.
KUHN SAID that his group feels future
admission priorities in Housing Authority
projects should be given to low income
people without disturbing present student
It was also reported at the conference that
all city political candidates have been invited
and will attend a public meeting Thursday to
discuss their views on housing. The meeting
is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the East
Lincoln Christian Church, 1101 N. 27th St.
