uskie link s war.
by JIM PEDERSEN
The big an,'"war demonstrations and speeches were in
Washington D.C. Saturday, but in Lincoln Nebraska
Democrats responded to Maine Sea Edmund Muskie's largely
anti-war address with similar enthusiasm.
Speaking before about l,SO0 Democrats at the annual
$35-a-plate Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner, Muskie linked the
lagging state of the American economy with the dragging war
Considered the front -running Democrat for the presidential
nomination in 1972, Muskie said Richard Nixon has given the
Democrats "good reasons to win" by promsing but failing to
end the war and 'creating a mess with the economic
The audience was cool to Muskie references to military
espionage of private citizens and FBI incursions into privacy.
Statements on unemployment, the farm problem and the
economy didn't receive overwhelming response either.
But the Democrats from the once hawkish "heart of the
heartland'" continally broke into Muskie's speech with
applause for his anti-war statements.
"No issue has undermined public confidence more than the
war in Indochina," the Maine senator saidr Americans
everywhere yearn for a clear cut and definite commitment to
end our involvement in that war.
"But the President tells us that a fixed date for withdrawal
will tear the country apart. I say that a fixed -date will give the
American people some confidence that their leaders do intend
a new beginning for American foreign policy. They could have
a mew confidence that we intend to use our power, not to
impose our will through force of arms, but to lend a helping
hand for justice and peace."
Muskie added that the economic problems of America, such
as 'unemployment, inflation, and declining incomes are directly
relared to the war.
"It is time we understood we do not need war to prosper,
he said. "We need peace."
Muskie denied that those advocating "getting out of the
quicksand of Vietnam" were advocating a new form of
"I believe that the opposition of the American people to
the continuation of the war in Vietnam has nothing to do with
isolationism," he said. "The American people are willing to
accept their responsibilities, but they -do not believe that what
we have been doing in, and to, Vietnam, Cambodia, ot Laos, is
a proper exercise of that world responsibility ."
Muskie said in his world travels he felt people were
suspicious and hostile towards the United States because of
recent U.S. policies. He added, however, that the people of the
world "have a deep and abiding hope that we will respond to
the best interests of the world.
"We owe it to them and ourselves to become the last best
hope of mankind."
New programlo help students
As part of a constant effort
to meet the changing health
needs of the University
community, the U Health
Service has recently begun a
Crisis Health Aid Program.
Based on the concept of
crisis intervention, the new
program is designed to help
students before their problems
become too great to solve,
according to Carmen -Grant,
clinical pyschologist at the
Unique to this campus, the
program is not a substitute for
the regular services offered
through the University Mental
Health Clinic. Instead, it is an
addition to the Clinic by
providing students with direct
service during the -evening
hours. Grant said.
Crisis Health Aides, NU
students trained by the Mental
Health Clinic, volunteer to
work at the Center from h p.m.
to 7 a.m. weekdays and 3 p.m.
to 7 a.m. on weekends. The

The new service will be

He said his dismissal resulted
partly from disagreements he
had with department chairman
Dale K, Hayes.
Hayes said late Sunday that
he did not know what health
reasons would cause Hubbard
to resign, adding that members
of the department will assume
responsibility for the two
classes Hubbard was teaching.
The department chairman
again refused to elaborate on
the reasons behind Hubbard's
dismissal. Hayes noted that
there was little point in giving
the reasons now that Hubbard
has resigned .
In his letter of resignation
Hubbard referred to his
that he not be rehired as "a
lynching" and added:
""Without a codified
statement of reasons for my
dismissal and without the aid
of a hearing where 1 was in
