Council Constitution ...
The fact becomes increasingly obvious to even the
v. i nhoprwr' that the "interim" Student Council
vaouu v-w ----- . .J ,
will not be able to complete its work on a new student
government constitution this spnng.
With but a month remaining in the year, the group
has not yet completed its document designed to meet the
needs of the campus tor years to come.
And even if the Council were to whip up a consti
tution at its next meeting, as the past weeks have pitifully
illustrated, the instrument for government on this campus
still has hurdles to overcome max maite us aciuaiuy uu
For even after the Council has put the finishing
touches on the constitution and given it their final ap
proval, the document then must be submitted to both the
student body and the faculty for their approval. There
exists, too, the possibility that the Board of Regents will
have to ratify the completed constitution. The process
nf ratification will take time lots of time. There must
be an adeauate period for careful analysis of the document
hv hnth students and facultv members. There must be
an, opportunity for discussion and time for adequate pub
licity on the constitution to assure familiarity before ap
Even if the instrument could possibly win speedy ar.
ceptance, the days remaining could hardly be adequate tor
readying the machinery to put it into practice. Filings,
campaigns and an all-University election for next year's
Council under the "new" constitution take considerable
time even on a campus singularly unenthusiastic about
Thus, it is lamentable that the tone in the Council
is "let's get the constitution done even if it is a little
xrough." It is especially disturbing to hear Council members
say "we can revise, it next year if it doesn t look so good
then." The accent seems to be on getting the student
government instrument done at all costs. Hurryy at the
expense of sober consideration and necessary foresight, is
dominating the scene at (Jouncil meetings.
Such an attitude is especially disturbing in a group
selected to formulate a constitution that could adequately
serve the campus for a good number of years. The repre
sentatives of the Council should remember that their task
is to write the best possible constitution for this campus
or to offer their best possible ideas to a group that will
carry on their current project. The value of the present
body lies not in its ability to finish the constitution at any
cost in order to make the deadline of its term of office
but to serve us constituents, under the circumstances, by
offering the product of a year's work to successors in the
btst possible form.
This year's Council has not been a failure in any sense
even if its work does not result in a completed consti
tution. Its contribution has been an extensive investiga
tion into the possibilities of student government which can
carry over o next year's body with greater assurance of
suess. Its failure can come only by hurriedly completing
the document designed to create student government with
a future on this campus. By attempting to thrust a speed

members will have done their fellow students an irrepar

used Monday afternoon to determine what student desires

Students and faculty members who participated in last
month's mock United Nations assembly will meet Tuesday
evening for a general evaluation of the conference. Open
to anyone interested in the NUCWA venture, the meeting
will be devoted to a discussion of what the model assembly
accomplished. Students who attended the conference meet
ings should be concerned with offering suggestions as to.
where the project fell short in presenting an attraction to
the entire campus. Their ideas can become the blueprints
for making any similar program next year a truly all
University program . . . one that will demand the attention
of every student and instructor. Their suggestions can
provide the outline for making the Nebraska University
Council for World Affairs better fulfill its aim . . . that of
bringing University students to play their roll in interna
One of America's most distinguished statesmen, Dr.
Ralph Bunche, United Nations mediator in the Palestine
dispute, will be on this campus May 8 for an all-University
convocation. Scheduled to appear at the Coliseum for his
address, Dr. Bunche should command a record convocation
crowd. He is one of the world's most noted figures in the
struggle for international peace and will discuss "How the
ance for all peoples of the world, Dr. Bunche is in every
sented our nation in numerous world conferences and was
recently offered the post of assistant secretary of state,
which he declined. A champion of understanding and toler
ance for all peoples of the world, Dr. Bunihe is in every
sense a great man, respected and admired the world ovej.
The all-out cooperative effort of Lincoln ' groups to
promote COURTESY in this city has now turned to self
control. ; "He who would manage others must first learn
to manage himself" is the slogan for the seventh of eight
campaign divisions. The month's emphasis on courtesy
calls for control of emotions, control' of speech and devel
opment of poise and dignity. As in the past portions of the
drive,-the month's accent puts the stress on practical ways
to practice courtesy in every-day life. The use of self
control plays a decisive part in making an individual a per
son one enjoys being around. Displays of temper, "touchi
ness," and "bad moods" belong to immature persons who
seem to want attention. "Swearing a blue streak" is less
a sign of Tm a big boy (or girl) now than it is a sad
commentary on an inadequate vocabulary. Control of
speech also should act aa a warning to those people who
tactlessly say the wrong thing at the wrong time, hurting
innocent people by their indiscretions. Betraying a confi
dence, too, poisons that, confidante's trust in a person's
ability to control his tongue. Poise and dignity are invalu
able in inspiring confidence, creating calm and reason, and
meeting crises, confusion and irrationality. They are essen
tial, la putting others at ease and in providing efficiency of
cction. Control that comes from disciplining self creates
e real pride in being a real person, capable of ineeting all
r.;lr.r.lici fy working well with other people.

An acute shortage of elemen
tary teachers is still plaguing the
nation's schools, reports the U.S.
Department of Labor.
However, the department states
that an oversupply of secondary
teachers will almost force stu
dents receiving secondary school
training to go after a master's
degree in order to qualify for
the best employment opportuni
ties. The number of students com
pleting preparation for high
high school teaching in 1949 was
four times as great as the de
mand; the oversupply in 1950 is
expected to be even greater.
The total number of elemen
tary teaching positions will in
crease due to the probable sharp
rise in enrollments for grades one
to eight. The number of new
teachers needed, the department
of Labor reports, will be greater
It is estimated that over a
half a million elementary teach
ers will be required in the next
ten years to replace those who
die, retire or leave the profes
sion for other reasons.
Enrollments in grades nine to
twelve are expected to decline
until about 1952. After that year,
enrollments will probably rise
slowly for the following three
years and then increase rapidly
until the 1960's. An oversupply
of teachers In these grades is ex
