NSA Supports
The United States National
Student Association executive
committee this winter came out
in favor of universal military
training "after the completion of
formal education."
The NSA plan calls for six
months of active duty followed by
three months in the ready reserve
with one or two weeks of summer
training. After this program, there
would be a two and one-half year
period in the inactive (or "stand-
by") reserve.
The resplution favored "devel-
opment of alternate service pro-
grams in critical areas such as
foreign service, technical assist-
ance, research and scientific de-
velopment and teaching."
The meeting held at the Uni-
versity of Minnesota over Christ-
mas vacation also favored the
money appropriated to the Nation-
al Education Defense Act but,
urged the repeal of that act which
requires loyalty oaths and affi-
davits from individuals receiving
Just before Christmas, Student
Government Council passed a sim-

The meeting in December is an
interim meeting between the an-
nual National Students Confer-
ence held in August.
