Chambers advises political action
"Go to the Legislature and make the
elected officials accountable to you,"
Nebraska Sen. IE rn ie Chambers told a small
group of students Saturday at the Nebraska
, Union. ' .-
Speaking at the Organizing Conference for
Young Voters Chambers said it was a
problem to make students understand the
serious problems facing the nation.
, 'There is a lot of criticism of the system
and the older people who messed it up," he
said, "but most students follow the path of
least resistance after graduation."
The American education system teaches
the "herd instinct" and produces people
. who are afraid to think, according to the
senator from Omaha.
"What we have to learn how to do is not
emphasize the negative," he said. "Develop
confidence in your own mind. The idea is to
communicate, to find the words to give feet
to your thoughts."
Chambers advised students not to
emphasize the exterior.
"Long hair doesn't mean you're a
revofuntionary," he said. "As long as they
(politicians) can get you arguing about
things like this you can't do anything."
The number of young voters won't make
a ripple if they don't learn how to think.
For example, history must be looked at
all over again, he commented.
"In school they don't tell you that John
Adams was a revolutionary," he said. "When
'history looks back at its scoundrels. . . they
have to start cleaning these guys up."
- History has not been fu9 of reason able
men talking out their problems rationally.
It has been the one with the "strongest,
hardest fist who could impose his ways on
others," he added.
Allen Beermann, Secretary of State told
students at the conference that the deadline
for registering to vote in the May 9 primary
election is April 28 at 6 p.m.
"Voting is a privilege and I don't want any
of you to miss it," he said.
Beermann said many students ask whether
they should register in Lincoln or in their
"The federal Consitution says you have a
choice," he said. "But before you make a
decision analyze the situation."
, Car insurance premiums and taxes may go
up if the students register to vote in
Lancaster County, he said.
Moving from a dorm to an apartment
off-campus would require re-registration,
"Nebraska has a liberal registration
procedure," Beermann said. "It has one of
the lowest residency requirements."
Currently a person must have lived in his
precinct five days, his county 20 days and
the state six months in order to vote, he
said. But there is a bill in the Legislature to
eliminate the six ' months and establish a
new, shorter period, Beermann added.
"In Nebraska you have to be registered as
a Democrat or a Republican to vote in the
primary election' Beermann said. "If you
register independent, you vote only the
Beermann said he was in favor of lowering
the voting age to 18 and is now in favor of
lowering the legal age to age 18.
"I believe that the legal age should be the
same as the age of suffrage," he said.
