NATIONAL STUDENT ASSOCIATION:

Group Adopts New Approach to Action

(EDITOR'S NOTE--This is the
final article of a three-part series
considering the founding, purposes,
projects and controversies of the
United States National Student As-
sociation.). '
By PHILIP SUTIN
At its 1960 Congress, the Unit-
ed States National Student Asso-
ciation adopted a new approach
to student action. Previously, it
had only been peripherally con-
cerned with this area, but the
"Student and the Total Commu-
nity" resolution justified NSA's
taking strong stands on contro-
versial issues involving students.
Noting that students often com-
plete their education with little
awareness of public affairs, the
resolution declared that NSA "rec-
ognizes the great value of student
involvement in programs of poli-
tical and social action and the in-
tegral connection of these pro-
grams with the educational proc-
ess. While recognizing that a stu-
dent must devote primary atten-
tion to his academic program,
NSA urges student participation in
legitimate social and political ac-
tivities."
Mandates NSA
It also mandates NSA to send
local units information on such
Wingo To Discuss
'U' as Community
"The University as a Communi-
ty" will be discussed by Prof. Mai
Wingo of the education school in
a Challenge-sponsored seminar at
7:30 p.m. tonight in the Honors
Lounge of the Undergraduate Li-
brary.

projects, assist student organiza-
tion, and take "forthright posi-
tions on such of the major issues
of the day as have come particu-
larly to the attention of students."
As the criteria for NSA consid-
eration, they resolution sets "the
importance and efficacy of the ac-
tion considered, the expressed or
potential interest of students in
the issue and the competancy of
students to evaluate the facts."
Before the 1960 Congress, how-
ever, NSA took few stands on con-
troversial action. In . its early
years, the experiences of the par-
tisanship at the 1946 Prague World
Student Congress and the concept
of autonomy of NSA in interna-
tional affairs and student govern-
ments themselves tended tO'down-
grade the importance of political
issues in NSA's eyes.
Opposed Atomic Testing
Two events at the 1959 Congress
gave a portent of NSA's increas-
ing political awareness. Earlier
that year, the International Stu-
dent Congress in which NSA is a
key member, passed a resolution
opposing continued atomic test-
ing. As NSA had no policy on this
question, the officers brought this
stand to the Congress. The group'
first voted it down, but reconsid-.
ered and passed thisposition.
A 'second change that led- to a
more politically oriented NSA was
approved by the Congress that
year. An expanded national af-
fairs vice-presidency was created,
centralizing the duties of the for-
mer national affairs, educational
affairs, and student government
vice-presidencies. The first occu-
pant of this post, Curtis Gans, be-
lieved in student political action

and shaped the post into its pres-
ent form.
Thus NSA became more involv-
ed in controversial stands. Using
the rationale of the "Student in
the Total Community" resolution,
NSA took stands on a number of
controversial issues. It endorsed
the sit-in movement and also at-
tacked the National Defense Edu-
cation Act loyalty oath and dis-
claimer affidavit needed for fed-
eral scholarships as two of its
main stands.
The liberal political tone of that
Congress gave impetus to both
conservatives and liberals. The
Young Americans for Freedom was
formed the following October and
both it and liberal groups looked
forward to the 1961 Congress for
endorsement of their positions.,
Last summer's Congress proved
to be the most politically orient-
ed. Backed by a strong organiza-
tion, the Young Americans for
Freedom set up an elaborate con-
vention organization including the
renting of an entire floor at a
nearby motel and the bringing of
National Review editor William
Buckley to the convention.
Passed Liberal Resolutions
Despite YAF's organization and
sometimes disruptive tactics, the
Congress passed many liberal res-~
olutions. It urged the abolition of
the House TUn-American Activities
Committee, an end to discrimina-
tion of social organizations, at-
tacked the Cuban invasion along
with condemning the totalitarian
aspects of the Castro regime, and
urged a review of the "in loco par-
entis" doctrine.
Applications Due
For Year Abroad
Applications for the University-
University of Wisconsin Junior
Year at the University of Aix-
en-Provence, France, are due'
Thursday in. Prof. James Gindin's
office.
Sophomores of honors caliber
with at least a two-year proficien-
cy in French are eligible to apply.
Courses will be offered in .such
fields as history, literature, philos-
ophy and history of art.

At the University, Student
Government Council adopted a
policy following the confederation
of student governments approach.
As the University is a powerful
member of NSA, SGC's action may
have significant repercussions at
the next Congress.
Thus the next NSA Congress
shapes up as another battle be-
tween the controlling liberals and
the conservatives. The conserva-
tive attitude is gaining. Thus NSA
faces a continued battle over its
political role.

Plan Talks

Committee will sponsor an inter-
national student seminar on "The
West and the Non-West: An Ex-
ploration' of Differing Cultural
Patterns and Values" this week-
end in Farmington.

turday morning to Sunday noon,
will be led by Al Chammah and
