Three assassination authorities disciisrd new questions
Monday night concerning the ki!IL!s of John F. Kennedy
and Martin Luther King.
Donald Freed, Mark Lane and Jeff Cohen spoke in
connection with the Union Program Council's symposium,
Power and. Conspiracy in America: Who's in Control?
Their presentation focused on shortcomings of the Varren
Commission, which investigated JFK's assassination and
questions that they said have not been answered.
Freed, playwright" and author of the novel Executive
Action, accused the federal government of secrecy
concerning information about the Varren report.
"That murder reached into every household in the
land," he said. "For 12 years we have been deceived
concerning the true facts about the assassination, but we
can fiit the secrecy of the state because we have the
right to know. '
Lane, an attorney and author, said he had been
researching JFK's assassination "almost since the day it
happened," and outlined some faults in the Ysrren report.
The problems involved with the report, he said, are
their methods of inquiry, their failure to question key
witnesses , and their rejection of the possibility of a
conspiracy. The main problem with the Varren report is
what he called "the magic bullet theory."
According to Lane, the Warren Cbrnnmsion concluded
that three shots were fired by one gunman and one of.
those shots killed Kennedy. Lane said the discrepancy
arises because the report also said Kennedy was struck
three times. Texas Gov. John ConnaEy once, and one'
stray bullet was found, all from that lone gunman.
Although Lane said he did not have a theory on who
killed Kennedy, he said there was enough evidence to
prove a conspiracy to kiO Kennedy. '
Lane said he recently received some new information,
which convinced him a conspiracy was involved in the
He held up a letter which he said contained testimony
from a former Dallas policeman who said Jack Ruby was
on the payroll of the Dallas Police Dept. two weeks
before Kennedy was killed. Ruby shot Kennedy's accused
killer, Lee Harvey Oswald.
The reason this and other information concerning the
Kennedy assassination has not been made public is

ten 3:30 to 5:20.
because the government has suppressed it, the public lacks
the power to get the information, and' the national media
accepted the Warren Commission's report as the final
word," Lane said.
To remedy that and renew the investigation, Lane
started a group a year ago called the Citizens Committee
of Inquiry, which now has more than 100 chapters
in more than half the states.
The main goal of the group, he said, is to urge the U.S.
Congress to pass a resolution calling for a congressional
inquiry into the King, Robert Kennedy and John
The group is calling for a congressional investigation
instead of doing it themselves', he said, because citizens,
do not have the power, to subpoena witnesses or obtain
government information. ,

East Campus students given chance
to decide new Union's programming
East Campus students have a chance to decide what
direction programming will take in the new Nebraska
Suggestion boxes have been placed in C. Y. Thompson
Library, Durr-Fedde residence halls and the Nebraska
East Unk. oy the East Union Programming Task Force,
according to junior Craig Hertel, a member of the task
Hertel said the task force was set up last spring to find
what East Campus students want done with their student
' fees. .: ; -. .
In the past, East Campus students have felt slighted,
he said, because they didn't have the building space for
speakers, films and meetings.
"We have the facilities and we have the student, fees,"
Hertel said. "Now we have our chance. We just don't
know what the students want."
Student fees are paying for the $43 million building
and its programs.

One question students can help decide, Hertel said,
is what should be done with a room behind the North
Forty Recreation Area on the first floor. The recreation
area includes a bowling alley, billiards and table tennis
tables, and pinball machines. -
The room is being considered as an arts and crafts
center or a darkroom, he said, but the task force would
like more ideas.
The task force includes student and faculty representa
tives from the Colleges of Home Economics, Dentistry,
Agriculture and Law. Student representatives from the
Graduate Student Association and the Union Advisory
Board also are on the force.
Hertel said the task force will list the program ideas in
a survey and send them to East Campus clubs and class
rooms for evaluation.
The completed surveys then will be compiled by the
task force and recommendations made to the Nebraska
Union Advisory Board for approval!
