Nader Puts G.M. Battle Aside to Speak at Geneseo
"A ny person who is proud to
belong to the silent majority
doesn’t have any democracy.”
So stated Kalph Nader last
Monday evening to the m any
members of the Geneseo student
body and faculty who attended
his speech a t the student union
ballroom on environmental haz­
ards. \ a d e r , who was sponsored
by the Lecture Council is cur­
rently in a battle with the 1‘resi­
dent of General Motors. He has
accused General Motors of con­
ducting a "witch hunt” to And the
source of information on which
he based new claims that the Corvair wus unsafe. Nader wrote a
letter last week to Secretary of
Transportation John A. Volpe
saying that General Motors have
files that show that the Corvair,
a rear-engined compact built un­
til 1969 by Chevrolet, was un­
stable an d overturned at speeds
as low as 26 miles per hour.
Nader, in his speech, said that
there is a marvelous opportun­
ity for students to become in­
volved in helping solve some of
the defective practices by business,
'i'hese practices expose students
to skills in collecting evidence of
theories. The students develop
processes for self-learning which
can be endless throughout the
student’s career. He said that stu­
dents go out an d get the fads.
He gave several examples where
students a re looking into some

the question, how can Geneseo
students become involved, N ader
suggested sem inars in different
departments to analyze the prob­
lems. He said that the problem s

This year, when Geneseo State
