justly criticized for not providing
any significant services to mem-

effective in making students aware
of them. If elected, I will urge

Such extremism and the result-
ing withdrawal of schools from
NSA could lead to having two stu-
dent organizations-one "conserv-
ative" and the other "liberal." Thi,
would defeat the need which I
see for a representative and unit-
ed student service organization
which NSA was supposedly found-
ed to be. A recommendation was
made at the last NSA Congress
to remove NSA from political con-
flict which does not directly af-
feet the students as students. Such
conflict has weakened and split
NSA during the past decade. I am
in full agreement with this reso-
lution, the "Columbia Resolution"
-in name of the school that in-
troduced it. and shall fight for
its adoption at this coming Con-
gress if elected. I am fully for
NSA as it was established-an in-
ter-university-college student serv-
ice organization - but unless i'
commences to emphasize educa-
tion more and extreme political
questions less, we shall have to
reevaluate our connections with

In most countries of the world
students play crucial roles in the
fight for, the progressive recon-
struction of society. To them, it is
incumbent on their position as
students to lead movements of
social change, and to provide the
intellectual groundingfor con-
structing societies built on hu-
man values instead of the self-
interest of the ruling groups. It
is students who question the basic
values of their society, who alone
can inseminate a stagnating cul-I
ture with a fresh ideology. TheseI
students are not isolated from the
society about them. They are able
to inject into society their ideal-
ism and hope because their na-
tional student organizations are aa
potential force.
In the United States, students
or more accurately college gradu-
ates, have become the backbone of
a highly technical and sophisticat-
ed economy. Lewis Cosier esti-
mates that 42 per cent of our
economy is devoted to the dissem-
ination of knowledge, informatior
and "culture." This dwarfs the
defense budget, and even the huge
industrial corporations. We are at
the center of this "knowledge,
economy," yet we are quiescent.
With the exceution of a handfu
of students independently workinp
in the civil rights movement, the
Peace Corps, Vista, the peace
movement and with the poor anc
disenfranchised, most students re-
main oblivious to their key role in
In an economy that has shift-
ed from "brawn to brains," we
remaini, in a sense, even more ex-
ploited than the working clan-
ever was. At least they were paid
for working (however poorly): we
have to pay to be exploited. The
revolution on the Berkeley cam-
pus has made it clear to us just
how exploited we are. We have
seen the plight of Negroes and the
poor in our country; we have
sensed the cowardice of our adul+
community which would rather
"save face" and protect "its inter-
ests" rather than have peace. We
have fought the complacent Amer-
ican society which would rather
be comfortable than involve it-elf
in the problems of our nation
and indeed the world, faces.
The United States Natiorial Stu-
dent Association could be an ef-
fective force in combatting the
complacency of our society. Un-
fortunately, member schools have
failed to contribute to the fulfill-
ment of NSA's potential. At th'

tion in the fight against the "mul-
tiversity" and the exploitation of
the student has beenforthcom-
ing from any source. Berkeley is a
partial tragedy in that it is an
island of activity in a sea of stu-
dent apathy and non-involvement
resulting from a lack of direction.
Here at Michigan we are find-
ing thatathe problems of the mul-
tiversity continue to grow. The
student population is mushroom-
ing, residence halls are stuffed te
overflowing, classrooms are r
mockery, and the IBM number i
king, and all this at exorbitant
costs to the student. At the same
time off the campus, the prob-
lems of civil rights, poverty, and
world peace are becoming ever
more visible and ripe for attack
These are the areas where USNSA

The United States National Stu-
dent Association is one of the most
maligned and misunderstood or-
ganizations in America. It has
been both praised and attacked for
goals which it could never hope
and has never intended to serve.
USNSA's major role comes in
the international student world.
While student politics-rarely draw.,
attention in the United States, it
becomes a potent force in the un-
derdeveloped world, where today',
students are tomorrow's prime
USNSA has been singularly ef-
fective at representing the inter-
ests of the United States - not
necessarily, however, establish-
ment interests-at this level. It
participates in numerous ex-
changes. important international
conferences, and mutual aid pro-
grams. USNSA's role has been fav-
orably recognized by the State
Department and by heavy foun-
dation support.
At the national level, the or-
ganization has been less success-
ful. Nevertheless, with higher ed-
ucation under more and more
scrutiny, and with student-facul-
ty - administration relationships
very much in doubt, USNSA has a
major vacuum to fill.
In the early and middle years
of USNSA's existence, the Univer-
sity was able to provide a heavy
proportion of leadership. In recent
years University delegations have
been less effective. It is time that
this situation change.

"Actually, the psychology people are our fussiest clients. Once
we had planned a minor change in one of our animal food pur-
chases and they became very upset. They told us that even the
slightest change in animal diet might ruin two years of research."
As for the people diet, the food service does not determine
menus; they are established by the individual housing units. Rather
food service is a central supplying agency that purchases food di-
rectly from the producer.
The food service loading dock is a continuous flurry of activity.
Crackers, spaghetti and potato chips for the League; potatoes,
oranges, and beans set to go to West Quad, spices, ketchup and
Spanish olives for the University Hospital; and boysenberries, ice
cream and roasts for South Quad.
And where does lunch for the food service staff itself come
from? Mr. Wagner says very little food is consumed on the premises,
"We all carry our own lunches."

MEETING THE DEMAND for fresh meat at
the University Hospital, dormitories, or the
League requires a good size staff of butchers.
Here a few choice cuts of beef begin their
journey to the dining table.




HERBERT P. WAGNER, manager of the $3 million a year food service operation, points out where all the carrots (cooked- in this
case) as well as Sweet Potatoes come from. This is a small portion of the three story facility. Note the Plattes used underneath
all cases throughout the building, to keep all food off the floor, to avoid any chance of contamination,
