CHICAGO-Three residents of I
the University of Chicago commu-
nity claim they were victims of
violence and police brutality in
Mississippi and Alabama jails.
Ralph Fertig, Felix Singer and
Terry Sullivan were arrested for
participating in "Freedom Rides."
A white woman was persuaded
by an Alabama sheriff to accuse
Fertig of "attempting to sit on
her." (Fertig states that he had
merely asked to sit by her.)
Immediately Fertig was charged
with assault and disturbing the
peace. In jail that night he was
warned he "would never leave
town alive." Then the lights were
turned off, all the cells unlocked.
The other prisoners began beat-
ing Fertig so severely that he mo-
mentarily lost his hearing.
Fertig posted bond and returned
to Chicago to- enter a hospital.
Singer and Sullivan, arrested in
Mississippi, say they were dragged
to jail through mud, across grass
and then along the concrete floor.
In their cells they were stripped
then beat and kicked.

SPU members believe that war,

alternatives to war and are work-

They believe that to be effec-

SEATTLE-A unique opportu-
nity is offered at the University
of Washington for students inter-
ested in social work and social
welfare. Students planning pro-
fessional study in social work,
those interested in non-profession-
al social welfare positions,, and
those who wish a liberal arts back-
ground with an emphasis in so-
cial sciences and social welfare,
may elect a major in social welfare
under the division of general stud-
ies in the College of Arts and Sci-
Within this program the student
will take a well-rounded program'
in the social sciences, three courses
in"social welfare, andhave an op-
portunity to work in an agency
that deals with a particular social
welfare problem.
Localagencies recently used in
this program dealt with mental
health, child welfare, juvenile and
adult offenders, community orga-
nization, mental retardation and
physical handicaps and youth ac-

versity autonomy and the academic
rights of students and faculty
members. Most seriously, USNSA
condemns the present government
policy of penalizing any and all
criticisms of the Castro regime.
The attainment of a Cuban solu-
tion to these problems is jeopar-
dized by such external interven-
tions as the United States govern-
ment involvement in the Cuban
refugee invasion of April 1961 and
the Soviet arms shipments to the
Cuban government. USNSA there-
fore condemns both these actions.
* *-*
USNSA urges the United States
House of Representatives to dis-
,claim the film "Operation Aboli-
tion" as an official and accurate
documentation of the San Fran-
d demonstrations against the
USNSA further feels that the
film is being used to discredit those
students. and .other citizens who
protest the committee's procedures,
tactics and its very existence. It
considers the charges against these
students as unwarranted and, as-
serts its belief in the sincerity,
independence and good intentions

man must be guaranteed baothn
theory and practice, due process
of law and protection from in-
timidation, no matter what its'
source of sanction.
* * *%
VOTING RIGHTS - It is vital
that a minority group possess the'
right to vote. Were the laws now
in effect properly enforced and ad-
ministered they would be suf-
ficient to guarantee the rights of,
all citizens. USNSA reaffirms its
desire to maintain and insure stu-
dent rights in this area.'
It urges that students assist'
individuals in their efforts to qual-
ify for registration, assist qual-
fled individuals in their peaceful
.efforts to register and encourage
people to exercise their voting

BERLIN - USNSA condemns
the border closing, which would
'deny the freedom of university
access to the students of East
Germany and in particular to the
students living in 'the Soviet sec-
tor of Berlin, who have been
guaranteed the freedom of move-,
ment under previous four power'

USNSA strongly urges the passage
of the proposed College Academic
Facilities and Scholarship Act and
expresses its hope that the United
States Congress will provide fed-
eral aid to education.
* *.: *
- It is suggested that each mem-
ber school have a student educa-
tional affairs representative to es-
tablish programs to increase stu-
dent interest in educational issues.
USNSA belives this would also
contribute to the formation of, or
to the increased utilization of al-
ready existing student groups con-
cerning themselves with these is-
TION NO. 1 - USNSA will send
telegrams to Latin American gov-
ernments and student organiza-
tions requesting immediate action
to save the lives of Alberto Muller
and other Cuban students on trial
for alleged counter revolutionary
