All nnnlgned editorials an tbc opinions of the editor tad
should not be conNtructed to reflect the views of the ad
ministration or of the university.
I am happy to note that the Daily Ne
braska", has again adopted the policy of giv
ing editorial space to the barb organization.
Your praise of former barb leaders and your
recognition of the past prestige of the organi
zation is indeed gratifying. I am sure that
all readers of your paper, and especially the
400 barbs, realize. that your iuterest is genuine.
We all realize what kind of friend the "Offi
cial Paper of the 7000 Students'' has been t
the barbs and how editors in the past have
upheld the aims of the independent students.
We have complete confidence that you will
follow the precedent which your predecessors
have set in this matter.
It is very evident that your intention is
to give your best efforts to the building of a
new and stronger structure to replace the
'House that I?oh and Otto buil" now, as you
say, in decay and ruin. Your leadership would
indeed afford a firm foundation. It will no
doubt be accepted heartily by all unaffiliated
We had hoped to concentrate on aims
other than political. We hoped to build a so
cial program which would adequately meet the
needs of the unaffiliated students (the organi
zation has failed in this respect in the past).
We had hoped to encourage barb partici
pation in all campus activities, and to aid
more in the coop movement. However your
editorial plainly shows that is far more im
portant to rebuild the party in order to do
our share in preserving (Jreek unity and that
great symbol of student government, the Stu
dent Council. The printing of ballots, as you
have pointed out, is of utmost importance to
the welfare of the student body. With the
Daily Nebraskan leading the way, the barbs
may again occupy the place on the campus
that they have held in the past.
Again I wish to thank you for your sin
cere consideration. Your interest is as wel
come as your tendered leadership is bound to
I welcomed by all independent students.
Very resectfully yours,
Bill Da foe, president of
Xebraxka Independent Ansueintion.
The Editor Says . . .
The note of sarcasm and suspicion evident
in the above letter from the president of the
Nebraska Independent Student association has
been expressive of the unaffiliated students or
ganization since its birth and growth. Voiced
principally by its leaders, it denotes an unwil
lingness to act and a willingness only to talk.
These leaders want something done, but won't
do it themselves. They want an organization,
but make only a feeble effort at organizing.
They cry out about being the "underdog," but
won't help themselves nor accept the preferred
help of others.
The Daily Nebraskan does not intend to
foster the unaffiliated student organization.
The Daily Nebraskan has never concerned it
self actively with any student political organi
zation. Its concern is the welfare of the stu
dents and the university. If any individual
or group interferes with that welfare or fails
to promote it, the Daily Nebraskan has always
stepjed in and always Mill step in.
The third paragraph of Mr. Dafoe's letter
is significant of listless activity on the part
of those "leaders." It strikes the general
tenor of the present organization. Quoting
from it: "We had hoped to concentrate on
aims other than political." (After the barb
loss in the fall election, the Nebraska Inde
pendent association has done nothing.) "We
hoied to build a social program which would
adequately meet the needs of the unaffiliated
students." (Mr. Dafoe might have had gen
nine hopes concerning a social program, but
it is evident that neither he nor his organiza
tiou has lathered to do any thing about it.
There have been no barb dances or other forms
of entertainment sponsored by the unaffiliated
student organization.) "We had hoped to en
courage and to aid more in the co-op move
ment," (Hope again, but no action.)
As for the accusation that the Daily Ne
braskan desires an active unaffiliated polit
ical organ so Greek unity can be preserved
there is no answer. There is no need of any.
Groups, parties and clubs are formed on the
basis of interests. If it serves the fraternities
to put up a united front, they should coordi
nate their efforts. If it serves them to sepa
rate, they should separate.
. It's time the independent students should
wake up to the fact that the present group of
"leaders" are a hindrance and not an aid to
their all-around welfare. It's time they threw
out the present organization and begin anew
with genuine leaders and not wishful thinkers

Nebraska students and alumni located at Fort
Snelling were honored at a giant farewell banquet
at Hotel Radisson in Minneapolis on May 31. Tele
grams from student and faculty well-wishers were
read at the banquet.
Members of the Girls' Club and the Y. W. C. A,
sent boxes of home-made candy tied with scarlet
and cream ribbons. Since the candy was to be a
university gift and not an individual one, none
of the boxes contained the name of the donor.
Chancellor Avery, in speaking of the banquet
remarked "It will be one chance that the students
will have to do something to keep the spfrit of
NU close to the hearts of our country's future sol
diers. Some of the men who have done much for
our university are at Fort Snelling and everyone
who is proud of their work here will have a chance
to show his appreciation both of this service and of
the greater service they are now dilligently pre
paring to render their country.

The difficulties of dramatic pres

were handled well, though perhaps
this aspect was the weakest of
the presentation. Operatic acting
is very demanding of experience

of Santuzza as well as her very
