into "a past adventure" but beglect the
questions of why the U.S. was in Viet-
nam.
Alexander said he has also seen at-
tempts to forget or distort the Vietnam
experience cropping up in recent high
school textbooks.
According to Alexander, these books
either don't go into much detail about
Vietnam or if they do, they don't talk
about the antiwar movement.
PROF. NORMAN OWEN was drafted
into the Army in 1967. Owen, who now
teaches history, said most of the people
he went through basic training with did
not want to go to Vietnam. The few who
did, went not because they wanted to
kill Communists, but "because you got
combat pay," he said.
In Owen's case, "a little bit of
maneuvering, a little bit of good luck
and a bad knee" kept him out of the
War.

Owen said few of the people he knew
in the Army were "gung-ho" about the
War. Instead, he and most of his fellow
soldiers shared the feeling "that all of
us were caught up in something that
was bigger than we were."
TEN YEARS later, Owen has helped
organize a teach-in about a war he
almost had to fight. Since he left the
Army, he has seen a generation of
students grow up "who don't know what
the War was about. They're interested
(in the Vietnam War) but it's ancient
history to them."
Consequently, the history depar-
tment is offering a one-credit course for
undergraduates participating in the
teach-in called "Vietnam and
America." All students interested in
taking the course can pick up override
forms in the history department office
at 3609 Haven Hall.
Barbara Fuller of the Ann Arbor In-
terfaith Council for Peace will help lead

Wednesday afternoon's workshop on
rebuilding Vietnam. Fuller visited
Vietnam for two weeks in 1876 with a
group of Americans from Friendship-
ment, an organization dedicated to
rebuilding Vietnam.
"EVERYTHING THAT I had ever
read and ever feared about what Viet-
nam looked like was true," Fuller said.
"The railroad was all gone. Highway
"We're likely to duplicate the Vietnam
War experience unless we can learn the
lessons that came out of that war."
-Barbara Fuller,
A2 Interfaith Council for Peace

In the 1940's, Ho also wanted to
establish friendly relations with tlte
United States. "but we ignored him,"'
Fuller said.
Since the War, Fuller said the
American people have all but forgotten
about Vietnam. As a nation, the Uniteil
States "has an obligation to heal thy
wounds of the war under the peace
treaty signed in 1973."
And, if the .U.S. forgets about Vie-
nam, "We're likely to duplicate the
Vietnamese War experience unless we
can learn the lessons that came out of
that War," she warned.

One in North Vietnam was constantly
pockmarked where it got hit by the
bombs."
Fuller said many of the bridges her
group crossed were severely damaged.
"Sometimes we forded rivers," she
added.
IN SPITE OF the devastation caused
by the war, Fuller said the Vietnamese
are busy rebulding their country with
"their bare hands and practically
nothing else."
In the central part of what once was
South Vietnam, this task of rebuilding
will be a long one, she said.
"The land was a vast wasteland
because of heavy fighting," Fuller
noted. "Ninety-five percent of the
irrigation system was destroyed" in
this region, an irrigation system vital to
growing the Vietnam staple crop-rice.
WHILE SOME of the destruction
caused by the U.S. military, Fuller said
her group was treated "very
graciously. OVer and over, we were
told that the Vietnamese were looking
forward to reconciliation with the
American people - and friendship."
Fuller emphasized that the Viet-
namese showed a great interest in
America and its people, an interest that
followed Fuller's group as it traveled
around Vietnam. In fact, the late North
Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh based
Vietnam's declaration of independence
from France on the American
declaration of independence fron
England, she said.

Students must sign the waiting list lly
March 24. If their choice becomes
available during the summer they
would be contacted about reassign-
ment. Students with choices which do
not become available over the summer
will be given priority for room freeze In
the fall.
Finn said students often give up their
attempts to live in University housing if
they lose the lottery and don't sedk
other means of remaining in dorms.
"In retrospect, we have never needed
to have a lottery," Finn said. "But if we
said to kids that everyone who wants to
return can return, we would run the
risk that everyone would return."
Those who have been readmitted to
their dorms are currently in the process
of signing leases. Early next month the
Housing Office will have specifics on
the number of students who decided to
return to residence halls and the nurO-
ber of new openings.
