Schools today keep students ignorant while making them
think they're learning something, Florynce Kennedy, black'
feminist lawyer, said Wednesday night. ' - '
Kennedy, from New 'York, and, Vincent Hallinan, civil
rights lawyer from San Francisco rapped with 150 students at
Centennial College. '
Both Kennedy and Hallinam said most people were
ignorant of oppression in this country.
"Even though many are oppressed, they frequently accept
the terms of their oppression,' Kennedy said. That's why the
country hangs together."
It is only when people start rejecting society and its basic
rules that society begins to change, she commented.
Hallinan said he was concerned -with the fact that masses of ,
people accept the inequalities of life.
"The greatest problem confronting the world today is
economic," he said. It is an astonishing thing that there are
millions of starving people and a handful of millionaires who
own everything, Hallinan added.
There is great talk of what should be done, he said, "but
very few young people bother to register to vote. You have to
do it in the system. L .
"If you put yourself in a position where they can take away
from you, you solidify what you have and move on. Hallinan
suggested. "You have to keep fighting,"he said, and advised
students to go into the courts and put pressure on the judges.
Kennedy said she thought people knew what to do but
were afraid to do it.
"You can survive any rejection of oppression but most
people don't think you can she said. "Most people are
terrorized by relevent thought."
Speaking about university problems, Kennedy said that a
board of regents that says you can't have ajpeaker on human
sexuality "should not be permitted to serve."
Kennedy, who was active in changing the New York
abortion law. said Nebraskans "ought to throw out people in
the legislature who won't allow abortion law to be taken off
"If men could get pregnant," she said, "abortion would be

Occasionally a student needs help or
counseling for his emotional problems. But one
major obstacle stands in the way.
When a student needs the help, he doesn't
know who to call or who to talk to. He doesn't
know where to turn.
That's why Crisis Health Aid (CHA)
(472-2200) provides a "strictly confidential"
information service from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. daily,
(none of the counselee's personal information is
kept on record). CHA provides a trained staff
of students to operate a free telephone and
walk-in service for members of the University
community. The walk-in service is located in
223 near the west entrance of the University
Heath Center (UHC) building. .
The Crisis Health Aid staff is advised by the
mental health staff of UHC. And the service,
according to a member of the CHA staff, tries
to handle any type of emotional, physical or
medical problem. CHA differs from Help Line
in that CHA provides counseling for emotional
problems. Help Line is more of an academic
During the first year of operation, CHA has
handled problems ranging from "bad trips" to
potential suicide to just being lonely.
But CHA has had one major problem during
its first year of operation. According to a
member of the CHA staff, that problem is
Students have not used the service.
Apparently students who need help are either
afraid to call, or don't know about the free
But, as one staff member said, the service is
provided for students. He said he hopes they
will make better use of it in the future.
