TOO MANY 'IFS' STOP PLAN:
NSA Congress Opposes IUS Affiliation

(Ed. Note-This is the third in a se-
ries r of interpretive articles on the
National Students Association first
annual congress which was held from
Aug.?- 23-28 at Madison, Wis. The se-
ries was prepared by the University
NSA committee.)
At its first annual congress,
NSA supported the decision of its
executive committee to break off
negotiations for affiliation with
the International Union of Stu-
dents, but agreed to cooperate
with IUS on specific projects.
Last year, the constitutional
convention of NSA had voted to
negotiate for affiliation with IUS.
This motion included a set of
tightly worded conditions. The
majority of the delegates at last
year's convention felt that, al-
though the IUS was communist
dominated, it was one of the few
remaining channels for communi-
cation with students of eastern
Europe.
SHORTLY AFTER THE fall of
the Czech Government last spring,
Jim Smith, NSA representative to
the IUS in Prague, resigned when
the IUS Secretariet refused to take
action on the alleged violations of

academic freedom in Czechosla-
vokia.
The National Executive Com-
mittee of NSA backed Smith on
this point, and voted to sever
relations with IUS.
Speaking to the NSA congress
this summer, Smith described a
series of "disappointments" which
led to his resignation:
1. The refusal of IUS to accept
NSA's qualified affiliation.
2. The rejection of a detailed
Inter-Cultural program presented
by Smith. This proposal was based
on the assumption that IUS could
best work for peace by creating
good will and understanding
among students.
* * *
3. THE FAILURE OF IUS lead-
ers to realize that, regardless of
political differences, IUS could
work with the United States on
student projects.
4. Smith's final relaization,
after the Czech incident, that
the only "progressive plans" of
IUS were those advanced by the
Soviet Union.
The main question which dele-

gates at the NSA congress dis-
cussed was how the IUS could best
be utilized to fulfill functions 6e-
sirable to the NSA. The congress
went on record as being opposed
to affiliation with IUS, and equally
opposed to the formation of a sep-
arate "western block" organiza-
tion outside of IUS.
BILL BIRENBAUM, University
of Chicago, and Bob West, Yale,
who was later elected national
vice-president in charge of Inter-
national Affairs, favored our co-
operating with IUS on specific
projects.
Larry Jaffa, equally opposed
to a "western IUS," proposed
that we should support a caucus
of western nations within IUS
meeting prior to the next IUS
meeting. This caucus hopes to
force a reform of IUS.
The NSA congress voted to send
an observer to this caucus.
Meanwhile, Bob West will con-
tact IUS and attempt to arrange
tours in Eastern Europe for Amer-
ican students selected by the NSA.

A Student Council will be in the
mkng when Business Adminis-
tration studentsmattend the organ-
izational meeting at 7:30 p.m.,
today, Rm. 102, Architectural
t Building.
The organizing committee of the
Council is holding the meeting so
that student opinion and support
can be sought on the proposed
constitution and projects offered
by the committee. Acting as mod-
erator at the meeting will be John
B. Watkins.
An election will be held Thurs-
day, Oct. 7, to select twelve men
and women who will serve on the
Council, six for one term and six
to serve for one year.
Candidates can pick up a nomi-
nating petition at Rm. 108, Tappan
Hall. Both undergraduate and
graduate students are eligible for
office.
The DEAN of Business Admin-
istration school, members of the
faculty and a number om students
felt the need of a student coun-
cil to formulate and voice student
opinion and to manage student
functions. Therefore, the commit-
tee of six got together and laid
the groundwork for the proposed
council.
An honor system for exam-
inations, the sponsorship of
guest lectures and above all, the
furnishing and administration
of a student lounge in the new
building are to be some of the.
Council's projects.
Other plans include student
opinion surveys, course evaluation
and various social events.
A CONSTITUTION has been
drawn up and will be attached
to the election ballot for student
ratification.
One of the significant sections
specifies that at least one woman
shall be serving on the Council at
all times.

Specialization
Brings More
Grad Students
Increased need for specializa-
tion is one factor in the tremen-
dous influx of students into grad-
uate studies in recent years, ac-
cording to E. S. Rice, assistant to
the dean of the graduate school.
Today's student realizes that
particular knowledge is necessary
for a high-paying job, Rice ex-
plained.
He also listed financial aid from
the G.I. bill as another reason for
increased graduate enrollment.
But the most important factor
is probably just plain human curi-
osity which makes men desire
more knowledge, Rice concluded.
