the game. Each man was as determined to
win the game as each student listening to the

Each one of us groaned and our head hung
lower and lower as the mighty Iowa learn
scored each touchdown but it is our job now
to get our heads up and help our team revive
its spirit for the ensuing games.
Many times it takes a defeat to bring a
season of wins and we only hope that this will

are representing the university, each one of

that they come out on top.
If the student body becomes discouraged
over the first defeat, the team can hardly

Schooner, U.N. literary magazine) which you
were kind enough to send me some weeks ago.
Anyway, I want you to know I welcomed
the Schooners with all the enthusiasm 1 would
have given a letter from home. As far as 1
am concerned, no other magazine in the U.S.A.
(or elsewhere) can even come close to com
paring with the finished touch of the Schooner.
And, to prove it, here is my one buck for a
year's subscription. Yours is the only maga

on the subscribers' list. 1 have very little lime
for reading, and what little time 1 do find to
read shall not be wasted as long as I have a
Schooner within my reach. You may start me
out with the fall issue.
Thanks again for the Schooners and your
most welcome letter.

Virtually all the Japanese in this country are

citizens of the United States. Disloyalty among

who have no poliilcal power and over whom we
enjoy a feeling of superiority, it appears convenient
to spare the trouble of individual investigation and
to cut them off from normal life purely on a
basis of race.

is willing to permit some students to return to
college, providing their college presidents arc will

for them. So far few but church schools have
shown any eagerness to assume this responsibility
and the Big Ten has definitely turned thumbs down.
It may be 'that Princeton, being in the Atlantic

students, assuming it is willing, but it is a possi
bility which should be given careful consideration.
Of the Japs now in eonccntrtaion camps it may

Just A Minute . . .
In answer to 1 his editorial picked up from
the l);iily lYiriceloiiian, 1 li is editor was unable to
kerp from adding a few facts which 1 Vie editor of
lie Princetonian evidently failed to consider.
Several Nebraska students including your edi
tor worked at a Japanese concentration camp in
Cody, Wyo., this summer and obffiined a little first
hand information on the set-up of Ihese so called
"witch burning" institutions.
In the first place, perhaps the Princetonian
fails to realize that the United States has officially
declared war on Japan. Giving him the benefit of
the doubt, however, we can say that it would be
much more pleasant all the way around if we had
no problem of enemies to the United States at all.
However, as the Princetonian editor stated,
most of the inmates of these camps are citizens
of the United States and most of them are more
loyal citizens than many American born Caucasians.
Few people realize that the Japanese people
are being placed in these camps aa much for their
own protection as for the protection of the Amer
ican democracy. Many of them who are loyal
citizens have been molested on the west coast simply
because they arc Japanese, citizenship or no citizen
ship. This is undoubtedly why the War Re location
Authority found it neecsary to fchip all of them
out of the area despite their loyal citizenship.
The Princetonian editor speaks of barbed wire
camps, evidently comparing them to the widely pub
licized stories of the nazi concentration camp. He
would be greatly disappointed, I am afraid, if he
isited Cody, because he would find no barbed wii
fence hoi ng the Japanese there. True, there are
mililary police around the area, but humorous as it
sounds, the guards are there more for the purpos
of keeping curious visitors out, than for keeping
ihe Japanese in.
It is very unfortunate that Japanese studenrs
have not been fcble to continue their college work
in more schools throughout the country. If a su
vey were taken, however, I believe the number
would astound even the Princeton editor. Schools
accepting these students, naturally, are not makii p
a big issue of 1be sil nation since these are too many
so called good American citizens who would scream
at the top of their voices over allowing Japanese
the privilege of education.
If 200,000 Japanese leave the internment camps
disloyal, it will not be the fault of the War Reloca
tion Authority. The Japanese, themselves, realize
they are far better off than if they were left l
the clutching hands of so called loyal American
