Participating in the conference were students from the non Western civilization classes of North Bennington and Bennington High school. Their teachers Bernard Leamy Sandra King and David Jareckie sat in the background and took no Active part other than to advise on parliamentary procedure. Before chairman David Peterson called the meeting to order or. Jareckie pointed out that he was aware that the students had encountered difficulty in finding information As few books have As yet been written on the current situation in Viet Nam. Following the presentation of a Resolution a to advise the United states to withdraw unconditionally from Viet Nam a an amendment to the motion was introduced that stated a that All military troops including those of the United states red China Australia and All others who Are participating in the War should a we were asked to go to Viet Nam and we have not been asked to leave was the opinion expressed by Sharon Colvin the Delegate from the United states. The pros and cons of that statement were being discussed when a five minute intermission was called. Many of the students took advantage of this time to look Over their notes to see what they could use in continuing the discussion. During the second session it was pointed out that by helping the vietnamese we Are guaranteeing our own safety. Also brought to the attention of the delegates was the fact that the Basic parliamentary procedure that was being used was hampering the discussion. It seems that a Point of order and a will the speaker yield to a question a were being used too excessively. After the North Bennington High school group left the Beni students joined in an informal discussion of Viet Nam. The economic and technical Aid to South Viet Nam and peace negotiations were among the areas of concern. It is hoped that sometime in the future some Beni non Western civilization students will be Able to travel to North Bennington to join in a discussion of another current world problem.
