This special hand-out has been prepared by the members of the University’s Compass Stj^
WHAT IS GOING ON?
As Black men and women. Black universi
ty students, I ask are you really cogni
zant of what is happening in Viet Nam.
Let's cross the waters, over into a land
of proverty, A land where men and women
die in their sleep, white a war is fought
that has no real meaning. Why must this
continue to be? There are many problems
involved in solving the Viet Nam crisis.

taken a rather negative attitude to
ward the whole matter. Speaking solely

is sent to Viet Nam, believe,me he will

a waste of time.
