This letter is to notify you that the guest column I
had written for your first semester editor, Gary
Sea crest, has appeared in the Douglas County Gazette
and only can be published with their permission. I
have asked the editor, Anne Batchelder, not to allow
any further publication of this article or
accompanying material until she has my permission. I
further withdraw this column from being published in
the Daily Nebraskan as the author.

In regard to the Ho viand -Swanson advertisement
last Thursday: these girls appear to be average
Americans, WASPS. On behalf of the Nebraska
Anglo-Saxon Totalitarian Youngsters (NASTY), I
would like to cuss you out for printing said ad. The
stereotype of two weu dressed, middle-class girls is
derogatory-what is more unpopular than being
In the future, please keep in mind that we in the
majority have feelings too.

McGovern hasn't got a chance. I hear this too
often to let it go by any longer without comment.
Passing him off as not having a chance is just a
cop-out. One should look at the choices rather than
After the New Hampshire primary last week where
McGovern got 37 per cent of the Democratic support,
I hope that shows the "he hasn't got a chance"
people a different outlook.

of their courses. This is not unlike playing Russian

The Spanish department should have the guts to
admit which insturctor teaches which course.

University stood up for some important things. We
should organize a determined group to save the trees
on east Holdrege St. If necessary, a group of people
could meet there and defy the bulldozers.
We must also resist the destruction of our campus.
Grant Hall is gone, the Geography building is now
gone, Brace (ugly though it may be) has been given a
10-year lease on life but is destined to be razed. Stout
Hall is to be torn down in late 1972 or early 1973.
Will beautiful, old, functional Architectural Hall
be next on the list to bow to "progress?"
This week's Hamburger Winner is Campus
Security. With the never-ending parking space
problem facing the students, why must so many have
to suffer the consequences of paying fines for illegal
parking simply due to the failure of Campus Security
to notify the students when a new parking lot is
From 17th to 19th Streets, on the south side of R
St., two new Area 2 lots have been completed within
the last month, but no one knows about them until
they have to pay a ticket for a needless parking
violation. This is downright negligence on Security's
Dear editor: ' Dear editor:
Now that it is registration time again, 1 notice tne Memoers oi me eoara oi Kegenis continue io
criticize student sponsored programs on the basis that
fees collected from students are used for the benefit
of only a small percentage attending meetings.
Regent meetings are open to the public, but
invariably only a handful of spectators show up for
these circuses. Perhaps the regents could see fit to
collect their salaries from interested persons attending
regents meetings instead of using tax money from all
the citizens of Nebraska.
Editor's note: NU Regents serve without salary.
Although I don't completely align myself with
Jerry Rubin's philosophical and political beliefs, his
visit to the University of Nebraska's East Campus was
certainly a positive experience. He was more tolerant
and rational than the mass media and other Powers
That Be portray him. He talked with quiet conviction
and intensity and didn't seem to want to
sensationalize. His ego was not distended but secure.
I was convinced that he is sincerely concerned
with the welfare of other people. If socialism is the
answer, it is the answer because he believes it will
help mosf people, not because socialism will give the
individual everything free. Persuasion is more
constructive than force, and I felt that Jerry Rubin
informed rather than forced.
It's too bad his visit didn't have more dramatic and

Profits from the Student YWCA International
Bazaar in December were only enough to cover the
cost of merchandise stolen during the three-day sale,
dealing a severe financial blow to the Student Y.
I hesitate to tell community friends this because it
causes criticism of the University and students.
However, there are large numbers of students doing
volunteer work in the community and who are deeply
involved in social concerns of the day.
Much of our publicity in the media has been only
those things that are controversial-birth control
handbooks, abortion repeal, problem pregnancies-all
are related to the quality of a student's life and
.The Student Y has sponsored a weekly
international luncheon for 10 years.
We work with the new Youth Service Bureau of
the YMCA recruiting students as Y-Pals, Y-Riders and
Y-Combo, and with the YWCA on Y-Teens.
Politically concerned students are involved in the
Nebraska Organization for the Repeal of Abortion
Laws (NORAL) and the Women's Political Caucus.
There is a women's information line each evening and
a new group is forming to do volunteer work at the
Family Planning Clinic.
The Student Y people work with many campus
organizations, and on many community endeavors.
They are there as friends and resources when needed.
Folks may not agree with some of our concerns, but
an organization like ours is needed to pioneer and
facilitate some of the unmet needs on this campus.
If you agree with any of our concerns, will help us
through our crisis with donations?
As UNL seniors concerned about the problems in
our environment, we would like to register our
support for LB 1247. Mortar Boards believe that
pollution in Nebraska must be dealt with now.
Under the existing anti-pollution statute there is a
crippling provision, referred to as the "Wyoming"
amendment, which states that the air quality
standards of Nebraska cannot be stricter than the
minimum standards set by the federal government. In
other words, Nebraska cities would have to reach the
Omaha level of pollution before the environmental
agencies could initiate any reforms.
LB 1247, sponsored by Sen. Proud, would restore
the effectiveness of the present anti-pollution law.
Under LB 1247 citizens could file a complaint with
an environmental agency which would in turn have to
act upon that complaint within a period of 31 days.
If not acted upon within that period, the complaint
could then be taken to civil court.
An Amendment to LB 1247 would make the bill
even stronger. This amendment would strike the
"Wyoming" provision. With the "Wyoming"
provision off the books, high standards of pollution
control could be set up, and environmental agencies
could institute preventive measures.
On an issue as vital as clean air, it is imperative
that we look ahead and anticipate the consequences
of allowing outstate Nebraska cities to become
polluted. We are all aware of the consequences. Cities
throughout the world testify to what can happen if
pollution is not dealt with in its early stages.'
Mortar Boards, therefore, strongly support LB
1247 and the corresponding amendment. We are
inviting disaster if we ignore the problem of pollution
while it is still controllable.
