Move against Iran is OK
By Rich Jurgens
Hal Daub, recently announced candidate for die 2nd

illegally. - '

Daub, who announced Tuesday that he will be running
against John Cavanaugh for the 2nd Congressional District
seat, said he supported President Carter's action to stop
importation of Iranian oil.
Along with Carter's action, Daub said the United States
should put an embargo on all Iranian investment, stop
sending Social Security checks to Iranians who received
benefits here and are living in Iran, stop paying interest on
Iranian investments and quit sending U.S.-made oil well
parts to Iran.
Daub said Iranians who "openly flaunt" the United
States should be deported.
"If they're causing trouble, I want them out," he said.
If the Iranians don't release the Americans hostages
through negotiation, Daub said the United States should
use military threat. However, he said Americans should
not try to provoke the Iranians in any way.
Daub said if the Iranians are successful in their
demands, each Third World country could use the same
, tactic in getting what it wants from the U.S.
Stopping shipment of food to Iran should be used only
as a last resort, to avoid a situation like that in Cambodia,
On other subjects, Daub said the military draft should
not be reinstated. He said his opponent, Rep. John
Cavanaugh , has proposed to have selective service and the
draft reinstated under universal military conscription for
ages 18 to 26.
Daub said he is against the draft because it makes poor
use of manpower; that selective service forces men to
serve who resent being in the military.
Cavanaughs' military conscription proposal would re
quire all men and women between the ages of 18 and 26
to enlist in the military whether we were in time of war or
not, Daub said. However, Cayanaugh's proposal actually
would give people a choice between military and civil
service. , . ' - -.-' .
Daub said Congress could make the military more
attractive by paying enlisted men more, and reducing their
time of service.
On the issue of inflation, Daub said the United States
should have a "workfare state" instead of a welfare state.
Unless someone is bed-ridden of severely handicapped, he
should work in order to put money into circulation.
Daub, who was defeated by Cavanaugh in the 1978
election, said that in this campaign he is going to listen to
the people more.
Even though traditionally most incumbent congress
men have a 97 percent chance of being re-elected, Daub
said he thought he would win. He said Congressmen now
g have a lower popularity rating than car salesmen and the
public wants new faces in Congress.
sent to regents
By Barb Richardson
The ASUN Senate rejected a resolution asking
that if ASUN asks the NU Board of Regents to
support speakers with student fee money, students
not wanting to pay for speakers should not be
forced to do so through student fee money.
ASUN' plans to ask the regents Friday to
reconsider a university wide policy that does not
allow student fees to support political and ideolo
Following an appearance by actress Jane Fonda
and a letter writing campaign by the Young
Americans for Freedom, the regents passed a policy
not allowing student fees to support speakers. In
their letter campaign to Nebraskan citizens, YAF
said student fee money was being spent for lesbian
and communist speakers. Several regents, during the
meeting when the decision was made, said there had
not been a proper balance of political views. William
F. Buckley appeared on campus after Fonda's visit.
The policy was revised this year to allow student
fee money to be spent on non-political and non
ideological speakers. The regents appointed the
Chancellor to decide if speakers are non-political or
non -ideological. Student fee money paid for Soviet
dissedent Alexander Ginzburg's recent visit.
ASUN's rejected proposal, presented by Sen.
Todd Adams, proposed that funds be collected
voluntarily such as the "PACE" check off system on
"The executive committee opposed this
resolution for a very good reason, it goes against
passed legislation," Sen., Dale Wojtasek said. He
pointed out that the Senate passed Resolution No.
13 that asks the regents to allow student fee money
to finance speakers.
"It's my feeling that students should not be
forced to pay for speakers," Adams said, "The
resolution is a compromise for mandatory fees and
no fees at all for speakers."
"A lot of preparation had been done and if we,
back out now we will be cheating students and
other people coming to the university in the
future," Davidson said.
Sen. Brad Belt said he respected Adams' right to
bring up the issue, but he is forced every year to pay
tuition that pays the salaries of professors that he
does not agree with ideologically.

One-day 'Smokeout' garners 7,500 Lincoln pledges
By Kathy Stokebrand
As of Wednesday, nearly 7,500 pledges
had been collected from the Lincoln area
for the Great American Smokeout today.
This is only 500 pledges short of this year's
goal of 8,000 pledges from the Lincoln
The smokeout, in its third year, is a
national effort coordinated by the Ameri
can Cancer Society. The event is designed
to be a "fun" way to help Americans who
smoke to quit smoking for just one day.
Sayre Dailing, chairperson of the Smoke
out in Lincoln, said most of the pledges are
from busineses, professionals, highschools
Members of the Delta Delta Delta soror
ity distributed material about the Smoke
out to all university living units. Darling
said the NU administration and faculty also
have been informed of the event.
Darling said "Smokeout Centrals" or
clinics will be in the Centrum, the Atrium
and the American Cancer Society office at
4740 A St. They will distribute informa
tion on smoking effects and dangers.
The next smoking clinic, sponsored by
the cancer society, is scheduled for early
THE NU MEDS will build a six-foot
toilet for the Centrum Smokeout Central
for people to throw their cigarettes in.
Those who have signed pledge cards or
sign up at the Smokeout Centrals today are
eligible to win a free frozen turkey donated
by the Lincoln Poultry and Egg Co. The
drawing will take place in the Cancer So
ciety office about 8 p.m., Darling said.
All Lincoln Taco Inn employees that
smoke have pledged to abstain for the day
and, Darling said, the manager has decided
their customers will not be allowed to
smoke in the restaurant today either.
Last year only 1 ,000 pledges were col
lected in the Lincoln area. Darling said the
effort is more successful this year because
of more time devoted to the effort.
Darling' said it was important to give
personal visits to businesses and institu
tions about the Smokeout. There is better
media coverage this year and the effort is
gaining popularity because it is in its third
year, she said.
SEVERAL FORMER SMOKERS have
given their names to the cancer society for
referral to help others.
George Frickell, 933 S. Ninth St., said
he quit "cold turkey" one day because he
became so mad at himself for being stupid
enough to smoke. He said he hated
cigarettes, but because they were there, he
" One day he caught himself automatical
ly grabbing for a cigarette and told himself
that he surely was not too far gone to quit.
Fickell had smoked for 50 years and
was up to 2'i to three packs a day. He quit
Nov. 18 last year and has not smoked
since. Frickell said he never had to substi
tute anything for smoking.
However, DeWayne Wyatt, 2330 Calu-
mit Court, said people trying to quit smok
ing should replace it with something.
Wyatt, who smoked for 28 yeafs before he
quit last May, said he kept busy with acti
vities and tried to stay but of situations
where he usually smoked.
AFTER THREE years of using various"
gimmicks to quit smoking, Whyatt said he
went to the clinic sponsored by the cancer
society. Completely satisfied with his de
cision to quit, he said it was the "greatest
thing" he has done in his life.
According to a press release of the
cancer society, Edward Asner, television's
Emmy Award winning "Lou Grant," is
heading the nation's Great American
Smokeout for the second straight year.
Until last year's smokeout, Asner had been
smoking two packs of high tar, high nico
tine cigarettes daily since he was 17. He
wanted to prove to himself that he could
quit smoking for just one day. When he
did, he tried again for another day. He has
SMOKEOUT CONTINUED 14.5
not touched cigarettes for a year.
A Gallup survey, the press release said,
showed that an estimated 14 million tried
and 3H million made it through the day
without lighting up last year during the
Smokeout. There are an estimated 54
million Americans who smoke.
