Debray Reveals Interview With 'Che' Guevara Camari, Bolivia (UPI) — Regis Debray, a French adventurer accused of helping anti-government guerrillas in Bolivia, said Monday he had interviewed Ernesto “Che” Guevara last March during a sojourn with guerrillas in eastern Bolivia. Debray, a leftist writer, denied participating personally in any military activity or giving instructions to the guerrillas. He spoke at a news conference in the lounge of the Camiri Military Club where he is being held pending trial within the next few days with an Argentine and four Bolivians. Debray said his captors tortured and beat him for a two-day period after he was brought to the Camiri army post in late April. He said his treatment since then had been correct. D e b r a y said he came to Bolivia for the purpose of interviewing Guevara, a Cuban revolutionary who has not Home Ec Teachers Elect Broken Bow Woman Mrs. Fred Kottmeyer of Broken Bow was named president-elect at the Nebraska Home Economics Teachers Vocational Association annual meeting here Tuesday. Mrs. Paul Kimmons of Omaha, elected last year, will take over presidential duties for 1967-68 from Mrs. Mary Frederick of Creighton. Mrs. Russell Soden of Wis- ncr was elected secretary, and Mrs. Ralph Higgins of Kearney was re - appointed treasurer on the opening day of’the three-day session. The session for some 25« home economics teachers emphasizing clothing and textiles featured Dr. Ruth Gates, associate professor at Western Michigan University at Kalamazoo, at its opening meeting. Research Needed Explaining some theories of the origin of dress, Dr, Gates called for “much more research” on clothing as it is related to how people perform and its functions. “Clothing is such a prevalent part of our lives, perhaps it can provide a clue to our behavior,” she said. Studies of clothing on conformity and digindividuatizu- tion indicate that “what we.dress. ffednesdoy, August 76, T967 liie IJiu*nln Star H . z * t Ai NfW OFFICERS . . .

But there's a pretty good I chance she won’t,” Dr. Gates said emphatically. Current adult reaction to youth dress in “not unique,” it was noted. However, she reported that in her study of clothing, she has never found as many rules in public schools concerning dress as now exist. Clothing extremes have flourished because the youths “have practically nothing left I that is exclusively their own. Adults dress like their children ” The popularity of Twiggy might be attributed to the fact that youths can wear the 70 70.000 up to AT LOW IISriDtJSTR.IAL RATES STATE SECURITIES Chiftertd & Supenriied by Nebraska State Banxtrtg Department for over 40 years PARK f Rtt . . .

Dr. Gates, a native of Lin- coin and a graduate of the ; University of Nebraska, add' ed that one reason men may have gone to beards recently is that “women have taken all of the dress of men.” ! Differentiation in the sex role of clothing has decreased considerably, possibly because "other aspects of the sex roles are becomeing more diffused. Less definite male and female roles may be reflected in dress,” she hypothesized. .Age, occupational and class roles of clothing also are becoming less differentiated, It was pointed out. Wednesday conference delegates will hear addresses on structuring curriculum, sewing in fashion, and teaching family relationships which will feature a student discussion on working mothers. an OIL !

I did not tell authorities I was coming here to interview Che Guevara because that is not the duty of a journalist. That would make him a police agent.” Debray said he doubted that Guevara was still in Bolivia. Four Charges Made The Frenchman is accused of murder, causing grave bodily injury, robbery and rebellion. “These charges are unbelievable,” he said. “This ought to be cleared up in the trial.” An army officer was in charge of the news conference. Debray said he and an Argentine named Ciro Bustos traveled to a guerrilla zone and found themselves there “without expecting it, without desiring it.” He said he and Bustos tried to leave the area when fighting started. He said he spent about four weeks in the area and was walking toward a village when he was arrested April 10 . Treatment unexpected *T never expected to re ceive the treatment 1 re ceived,” Debray said. “I was tortured and beaten for two days. Finally, the sense of honor of one high officer who arrived put an end to all that. Since then, I have been treated correctly physically. “But I have been subjected to moral torture. 1 was made to believe that I had disappeared as far as the outside world vias concerned and that I could be killed at any moment. “Then my family arrived in Bolivia and the treament became better until now 1 am all right.” SNCC Charges Israel Committed War 'Atrocities' Atlanta. Ga. (Æ)~The militant Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee said Tuesday that Jews are “imitating their Nazi oppressors” and committing “some of the I same atrocities against the Arabs.” Three leaders of the Black Power group told a news conference that the facts of the Palestine problem “have been completely hushed up in the United States press and television news media.” “Israel is and always has been the tool and foothold for American and British exploitation in the Middle East and Africa," said Ralph Featherstone, SNCC program director. Featherstone, executive secretary Stanley Wise and Miss Ethel Minor held the conference for the purpose of expanding their SNCC newsletter which charged that Zionists conquered Arab homes “through terror, force and massacres.” The newsletter also charged the Israelis destroyed more than 30 .Arab villages before and after they took control of Palestine. Jewish leaders said the SNCC charges generally represent the propaganda lines taken by the Arab nations with some variations attributed to the Russians. REMEMBER ...

Pollution Of Air, Cancer Related Claims Stewart Washington — Surgeon General William H. Stewart said Tuesday that lung cancer deaths rates—and air pollution levels—rise in direct proportion to the size of U.S. cities. Even when cigarette smoking is balanced out. he told i the Hous^e Commerce Com- j mittee, “there is still a 23 per ; cent urban-rural differential In lung cancer rales,” a factor presumably related to air ' pollution. In addition, Stewart c o n- tended, “statistical and epi: derniological studies show significant correlation be: tween air pollution levels and ; a number of other conditions including emphysema, chronic bronchitis and the common cold.” THE LINCOLN STAR Your Capital City M()11NTN(» Newspaper YOUTHCRAFT rank showiig of : all coats Soleet your iie%v fall coat and suit from hi.«» trunk showing AufjUNl 17.
