Daniels: pill policy forcing
coeds to Family Planning
The University is messing up the low-income community in
more areas than housing, Twig Daniels said Friday.
The probiem-pregnancy counselor said Student Health is
referring coeds to the Lincoln Family Planning Clinic for
contraceptives if they are under 20 years old.
The clinic is for low-income people, Daniels said, and the
more students who use it, the less time and money can be used
for the people it was set up to help.
Pat Bouse, clinic director, said she believes there has been
an increase in the number of students using the facility since
Student Health's statement that it would give contraceptives to
minor women only if they're married or about to be married.
When a Daily Nebraskan reporter called Student Health and
asked if it gives contraceptives to single, minor women, the
nurse initially said she did not know.
After the nurse asked someone, she said, "No, Student
Health doesn't. You should go through the Lincoln Family
Gail Folda, of the University Women's Action Group,
said Student Health receptionists often tell students to talk to
the Family Planning nurse.
The nurse is in Student Health, Folda said, but she noted
many students often misunderstand and think they are
referred out of Student Health when they are not.
'That; is 'why, Daniels said, the Student Health Family
Planning nurse should be called the "birth control nurse."
- .That would avoid confusion, she said, and remove the
implication that one must be "planning a family" to use
Daniels said the decision to give contraceptives or abortion
counseling is up to the individual doctor.
"I see no reason why Student Health can't say to the
doctor, 'If you don't agree with birth control or abortion, you
should refer them (students) to someone who will help them.'"

Curtis predicts farm prosperity
U.S. Senator Carl T. Curtis predicted that
1972 will be a "very good year," in a Saturday
address to the Coalition to Re-elect Curtis at
the Nebraska Union.
An increase ii national prosperity is
indicated, he said, particularly for farmers
under what he termed the new, more generous,
Curtis also was pleased with the slowing
crime rate. "Lawlessness represents: a moral
breakdown," he said.
The new U.S. Supreme Court appointees
offer hope for a "more balanced court," Curtis
"Criminals have rights, of course," he said.
"But the general public has rights, too-to go to
and from the job and so on."
Curtis predicted the "new direction of the
Supreme Court" will emphasize citizens' rather
than criminals' rights.

Ken Nelson, 19, .a sophomore from
Oconto, plans to enter a Methodist
seminary after graduation. He toured
seminaries in several states during
Christmas vacation and his first
impression was that they were "preacher
factories." But Nelson found they did
more. "They help educate people so they
can minister to all different types of
people." he said.
Nelson expressed approval of church
involvement in politics.
"Staying out of politics would mean
not having anything to say about issues
like the Vietnam War," he said. "Politics
does concern me. If the country would
fail, there wouldn't be much left for the
church to go on."
He said he will seek conscientious
objector draft status.
His identity is I problem all the time.
Nelson said. "I'm not really sure why I
want to go into the ministry."
"If it gets to the point where they (the
church) think they should determine
what my life is like, I'm going to become
disassociated with that church and find
another," he added.
Althouah abortion law reform is a state
issue, Curtis said, as a citizen, he was
completely opposed to it.
On another issue, Curtis said he favors
abolishing capital punishment.
He said he feels it is currently a possible
penalty for too many crimes.
Asked why he supported subsidies for the
super-sonic transport (SST) and continues to
support the space program while poverty exists
in the U.S., Curtis replied: "Poverty will best be
overcome if we have a prosperous economy."
The aviation and aeronautics programs "are
advancing our technology" he said, and "it will
be through technology that we'll clean up our
Curtis explained a plan he favors, through
which solar energy will be caught: by a floating
antenna outside the atmosphere.
The energy it collects will be used as fuel on
earth, he said, an option we could not explore
had it not been for the space program.
Curtis was wearing a bracelet with the name
of an Omaha soldier lost in action in Vietnam.
It's purpose, he said, is to prevent forgetting
"about those people as we go about our
