There are 440 Commuting
Students who attend Capitol
Campus. These students have no
voice in Student Government,
although they comprise
one-third of the student body.
Bob Klugiewicz would like to
see the Commuting Students
become a powerful force at
Capitol Campus, so he is trying
to organize a group of
Commuting Students.
“We’re trying to get
something together for
commuting students. We’d like
to have our voice in SGA, and
we’d like to discuss problems
that commuting students face.”,
said Bob.
Many commuting students
hold jobs, and many of them
have families. Direct
involvement with SGA is
SGA President Lee Levan and
CAPITOLIST Editor Rosemary
Scanlon ratified a Joint Treaty
of Peace Between the People of
the United States and the People
of South Vietnam and North
The document was drawn up
by a delegation of eleven
American students who traveled
to Hanoi and met with official
representatives of the North
Vietnamese National Student
Be it known that the American and Vietnamese people are not
enemies. The war is carried out in the names of the people of the
United States and South Vietnam but without our consent. It
destroys the land and people of Vietnam. It drains America of its
resources, its youth and its honor.
We hereby agree to end the war on the following terms, so that
both peoples can live under the joy of independence and can devote
themselves to building a society based on human equality and
respect for the earth.
1. The Americans agree to immediate and total withdrawal from
Vietnam and publicly to set the date by which all American forces
will be removed.
The Vietnamese pledge that as soon as the U.S. Government
publicly sets a date for total withdrawal:
2. They will enter discussions to secure the release of all
American prisoners, including pilots captured while bombing North
3. There will be an immediate cease-fire between U.S. forces and
those led by the Provisional Revolutionary Government of South
4. They will enter discussions of the procedures to guarantee the
safety of all withdrawing troops.
_ The Americans pledge to end the imposition of
Tmeu-Ky-Khiem on the people of South Vietnam in order to insure
their right to self-determination and so that all political prisoners can
be released.
6. The Vietnamese pledge to form a provisional coalition
government to organize democratic elections. All parties agree to
respect the results of elections in which all South Vietnamese can
participate freely without the presence of any foreign troops.
7. The South Vietnamese pledge to enter discussion of procedures
to guarantee the safety and political freedom of those South
Vietnamese who have collaborated with the U.S. or with the U S
supported regime.
8. The Americans and Vietnamese agree to respect the
independence, peace and neutrality of Laos and Cambodia in accord
with the 1954 and 1962 Geneva conventions and not to interfere in
the internal affairs of these two countries.
9. Upon these points of agreement, we pledge to end the war and
resolve all other questions in the spirit of self-determination and
mutual respect for the independence and political freedom of the
people of Vietnam and the United States.
By ratifying the agreement, we pledge to take whatever actions
are appropriate to implement the terms of this joint Treaty and to
insure its acceptance by the government of the United States.

force on campus. Many of us
fluctuate back and forth
between school and home.”,
Bob explained.
“We must form this
organization to let people know
we’re here. We would like a
representative in SGA, but right
now we don’t even know how
many students who commute
are involved in student
“Why can’t there be a
Commuting Students’
Organization?”, Bob
commented, “even in
Orientation, when the Meade
Heights people go to meetings to
discuss their problems, the
Comm-uters should have
meetings t00...we must know
that we are a part of Capitol
Union and the South
Vietnamese Liberation Student
Union. Representatives from the
three groups signed the Joint
Declaration of Peace.
Many organizations in the
United States and Vietnam will
be receiving copies of the Treaty
for ratification.
