Abraham Lincoln.
THAT student sentiment Is practically tinani
moufly In favor of publishing- reasonable at
counta of aororlty downtown parties, now consid
ered violation of local ranhollcnic regulation!,
it evidenced from a.lditional comment appearing la
this ifsua of The Nebraskan.
Stnra la?t fall when the Panhellenic council in
formed The Nebraskan that stories of sorority
parties appearing In its "On the Campus" column
would have to cease to comply with the rules, this
newspaper has sought to have the reli Idioua ie
moved. When no results were forthcoming at the
end of the semester, a new request that Panhellcnlc
authorities investigate the matter was presented.
Any action they might see fit to take, it was
understood, would be deferred until after consult
ing the national Tanhellenic association president
who will be in Lincoln late this month. By solicit
ing opinions of sorority presidents and other campus
leaders. The Nebraskan has sought to crystalize
opinion In order that local Panhellenic representa
tives might know student feeling on the subject.
In fairness to the advisory board of the Tan
hcllenic council It 6hould be stated that The Ne
brabkan is In no way trying to coerce it into action
The Nebraskan is pointing out what it believes to
be an existing evil. That its criticism Is more than
a "shop" matter Is shown by the many ideas ot
students found to be in accord with the view of
the situation it has taken. The advisory' board of
the council now knows just how students feel. Its
positionln presenting the matter to the national
president must take this student attitude into
IN' CONSIDERING the publication of sorority
news. It is well to be aware of possible excesses
which might result. It is not altogether improb
able that some sororities would seek to have their
.social functions reported In minute detail detail
that news Interest does not merit. The extreme on
this aide of the question must be avoided just as
the extreme on the other side, now prevailing. In
publishing stories of the parties this must be con
sidered in order that unjust and undue emphasi.s
may not be placed on sorority society.
It ia recognized that unless there were definite
legulations some newspapers might print excessive
party items. Conversely some sorority party might
occasionally b omitted from the paper by error
or oversight. To avoid these possible evils and
etaMih sorority party news on a legitimate and
reasonable basis, The Nebraskan suggests that the
following plan might be put into operation:
J. Information concerning parties may be
fumed in at a central office under supervision
of the Panhellenic chairman at the option of
tb ororitl. Croup who did not desire pub
licity would not be forced to accept it.
X. This Information should Include: a.
Number of Invitations issued: b. Dr-coration
whema; e. Refresh men! s; d. Chaperonoa and
special guests; e. Time and place.
ft. Cards filled out by sorority representa
tives containing this information would be
ebckd bffore tbey were made available to all
UCT-I plan 1a practical for neveral reasons. Tt
entails a minimum amount of supervision. The
work of handling such a news bureau would be
very light Giving the general plan of the party
without elaborate details would prevent overplay of
the news. Each sorority would have an equal op
portunity. Tet the news as it truly exists would
not be suppressed but open to all who cared to
know about it.
To answer the objection of one sorority presi
dent who today expresses the belipf that publica
tion of party news would result in spending more
money for such parties is to look across the street
at the brothers along fraternity row. Do they en
gage in cutthroat party competition ? Do they
upend large sums of money on parties so that news
papers will publish lavish reporta of such events?
The reply is an emphatic no.
No cogent reason why The Nebraskan and
other papers should not publish stories of soiuiiiy
parties has as yet been presented. Nothing will
ever be gained for sororities here at the university
or throughout the state by stifling the press.

A flying rumor never haa any trouble making
a landing.
yOUNG college swains will be surprised, and may
hap a bit chagrined, at a recent statement of a
Nebraska alumna. Dr. Anna Y. Reed, professor of
personal administration at New York university,
who pictures a coeducational university as a de
sirable place for girls to go to select their husbands.
A girl going to a coeducational school meets
many men, Dr. Reed pointa out. This association
with men is even more beneficial in the huhhy
culling proceaa because it shows the man as be is
Marriage Isn't necessarily a failure. There's
always a fighting chance.
JY TRKTENDING to be vitally Interested In every
course, by making frequent and extended visits
to professora" offices, and by assuming a meditative
air In all classrooms, a number of students seek 'to
get by in the university aa quickly and as easily as
possible. This practice, used to secure favor of
Instructors, 1s contemptible In the eyes of most
As a result all conferences with professors, even
to the extent of common courtesies, are regarded as
efforts to Improve one's standing In the course with
a better final grade the end In view. A fellow haa
to highbrow his teachers if he expecta to escape
this Indictment by hia friends.
It la lamentable that such a condition should
exist at the University of Nebraska where the large
enrollment makes personal contacts with professors
limited to a relative few. It means that those stu
dents who seek to associate with professors for the
individual good which they may gain rather than to
achieve a good grade are not respected In the eyes
of their classmates.
Certainly chic coeds and languid cake-eaters
who strive to win approbation and a passing mark
in their courses by cavorting semi-weekly up to
their instructors, by laughing uproariously at their
stale attempts to be humorous, by veiling deceit
with simpering smiles, should be discouraged from
such asinine actions, but Just as surely those others
whose motives are laudable should be encouraged.
'T'O THINK that those who do seek to make the
most or university experiences oy acquainting
themselves with the ideas that have made Nebras
ka's best teachers recognized leaders in their fields
should find themselves criticized and scoffed at for
making such an effort seems entirely out of har
mony with the attitude any university should as
sume. Of course few students fool professors. Those
suckers who string a line of soft conversation to
their teachers are easily identified. Perhaps a few
get by but very few. Instructors have the ability
to discern the true purpose of a student's visit un
less the student is very unusual or the instructor
very incompetent.
General atudent opinion about consulting pro
fessors is what is in need of criticism. Students
should know that professors realize when they are
being lathered with soft soap by sudsy individuals.
They also should recognize that there is no element
of dishonor or deceit involved if a student's aim in
chatting w ith instructors is not to make a grade or
secure his professor's favor for approbation's sake.
Let students flock to the dens of their instruc
tors. And let professors be the judges of their
motives, not the students.
The Student Pulse
Sigurd contnbutiona pertlnrn to niattera of atudent
lire and the university art welcomed by thia depart
ment. Opiniona aubmitted ahould be brief and conciae.
To the editor:
In the recent questionnaire submitted to the
student body one of the main questions waa con
corning whether it did a person good or harm to
have outside work to do. In our opinion, if more
of the student body aid work, at least one aim
of education would be met more successfully. Work,
aa all who have tried it know, tends to increase
resourcefulness, initiative, and confidence in one's
Is not this an aim of education? Would it not
be better if many of the members of the social
organizations of the university had some work to
do to keep them occupied. It is very evident that
many students have a hard time obtaining worthy
use for their leisure time. This is Keen from the
number of limousines parading up and down the
streets of Iirrtn. These students surely do not
make worthy use of their time? What say, do
they? R. C. K.-D. C. H.

Current Comment
One of the most dangerous elements of a uni
versity training, as far aa the student himself is
concerned, is that it provides an almost ideal setting
in many cases for the development of followers
rather than leaders. Regular assignment are made
at each meeting of the class, and the atudent pro
ceeds to read them without asking himself what it
is all about. The instructor calla for an outside re
port, and the student sees to it that the report gets
in promptly. A good student? Yes, but that is all.
And far worse than thAt, he is rapidly training him
self to unconsciously submit to the leadership of
others. The desires of his individual instructors
and the whim of his personal "chums" aoon come to
take precedence over what individuality he may
have had at the outset of his school career. His
very personality la forced to the background by the
stronger of the various stmuli exerting their influ
ences upon him. Purdue Exponent.

Accurate Work Possible.
Most of Dr. Guilford's slides are
reproductions of diagrams or pic

These must usually be absolutely
accurate and copying them is
often impossible and would require

reproduction and projection by

the problem in the psychology de

tory in the opinion of the Mortar
Another Resolution Passed.
Addede. to this recommendation
is a resolution passed by the Stu
drnt council during the past se
mester which says that at least
one member of the student council
must be present at the place where
the votes are counted following the
balloting for Nebraska Sweetheart,
Junior-Senior Trom Girl and sim
ilar elections.
It is the last part of the stipula
tion "similar elections" that
doesn't set so well with the Mor
tar Boards. Although their activ
ity, their selection of May Queen,
is' not explicitely cited in the coun
cil's resolution, it nevertheless
comes under its scope and pewer.
The Mortar Board members be
lieve the election of May Queen,
which has always been participa
ted in by senior women under their
direction, should be in their own
hands and no one else's. They
should be allowed to work out
their own salvation in this respect,
they think, as shown by the fol
lowing statement made by Julia
Rider, their president:
"We don't like to say anything
about the system of election until
it is definitely decided upon. But if
the election of May Queen is to
continue as it has in the past, then
we object to the recommendation
put thru by the Student Council.
Senate Acts.
Action taken by the university
senate at its last meeting hasn't
helped the matter either. At that
time it was decided that Ivy Day
should be held a month earlier
than usual May 2. Instead of late
Alay or early June. If the first
resolution passed by the Student
council were to be followed then
the May Queen could not be
elected until aftr the ceremonies
were over for the council's move
calls for the election of the May
Queen at the student general elec
tion In the middle of May.
The Honorary colonel, another
honorary position, slighted but im
plied by the council in its resolve
for "cleaner elections," will be
elected as formerly. There will be
no change made in this respect
and the approval of the military
department in the action taken by
the student council is evidenced
by the following statement of Lt,
Col. F. F. Jewctt:
"Mr. Lantz, faculty member of
the Student council 1, has always
assisted me in the counting of the
votes. When the cour,ing was
completed we have always called
in the president of the Student
council, giving him the ballots and
our count. He had the privilege of
recounting or verifying our count
in any way he desired.
"It waa not generally known
that this member of the student
body knew the identity of the hon
orary colonel, but we wanted to
have our count confirmed by a
representative student. The new
Student council ruling merely
makes this procedure a necessity.
The election itself, of course, is
conducted by the Student council
in its regular fall election."
"A Family Too Big for Its
House" will 'be described by Mrs.
John Senning in a talk at the meet
ing of the university League of
Women Voters on Thursday after
noon at 4 o'clock in Kllen Smith
hall. The reorganization of the fed
eral government will be the sub
ject of the discussion.

dent, Marie Herney, who will pre
