The victorious candidate next month, no matter who he is, must lace up to the War in Vietnam and the problems oi racial harmony and poverty. These are the issuer of most significance in 1968 and it is our conviction that a Nixon Administration would be most effective in dealing with these issues. Mr. Nixon and Mr. Humphrey are equally determined that the Vietnam War must be ended as soon as possible. Mr. Humphrey, however, is still tied to the policies oi the Johnson Administration for

Two serious errors appeared in last week's edition ol the anchor. The group of 29 students who walked out of the Student Senate meeting was referred to as the Black Coalition. In actual fact, these students acted independendy, and the walkout was not organized under the Coalition's auspices. In addition, the word "fairly" was inadvertendy omitted from the excerpt ol the group s letter which asserts that a segment of the campus is not "fairly represented" on student-faculty committees. We regret tbe appearance of these inaccuracies.
