We hate to keep harp,
dragged-out exam issue, but
minor matter . . . NOTHING
A fw instmintors have
in the hope of relieving the situation, some of them putting
the matter up to a student
has been taken, and Heaven
Furthermore, the calendar calls for speedy action. No
more dilly dallying if we're going to find an answer before
final week is upon us. The time is growing short, just too
short for comfort. Finals are looming aneaa, ana we im
only a matter of weeks in which to take care of this per
plexing problem which turns up at the end of each and
every semester.
The Student Council has
tution and conseauentlv. the
the short end. We realize that
no small amount of labor in the daily lives of Council
members. But George and his friends whipped one up in a
scant three and a half months, and the United States has
managed to get along with it for 162 plus years. Seriously,
we don't think the Student Council can just drop every
thing in favor of this one project. The interim Council's
assignment was not only to draw up its own new blue
prints, but to meet all the problems which arise before a.
student governing body during the year, inere are many
issues demanding the Council s attention, and one 01 the
most pressing of these is the exam stealing problem.
If something isn't done, we can expect to see all our
little burglars sally forth on their quest of knowledge,
knowledge of a rather questionable character, when exam
week rolls around.
Stealing finals ... it isn't right and it isn't fair and it
isn't upio par with the mental level expected of a Univer
sity student. But if the students can't control their own
actions, we must remove those factors which cause them
to take such steps. These very factors provide powerful
motives. Most students wouldn't go so far as to set out on
a midnight raid. But when someone else does the dirty
work, when other individuals smack a contraband final
right before the students' eyes . . . free for the asking
then's when the temptation builds up to magnanimous pro
portions. It becomes so powerful that most students don't
even realize that they are being tempted; they scarcely feel
any force compelling them in the opposite direction of re
fusing the final.
So students do steal exams at other schools. So what ?
Let these other would-be education getters win their di
plomas after their own fashion. We're cencerned with what
goe3 on in our own back yard, and what other schools do is
no excuse for Nebraska "traditions."
University students get pretty much of a square deal
all the way around. It goes without saying, however, that
the exam racket is a far cry from anything resembling fair
play. Why should some student who has poked along all
semester come through with flying colors, while the student
next to him, who has applied himself diligently for his
grades, is made the goat?
The solution of de-emphasizing finals has had much
publicity and much support. The honor system has been
proclaimed as the perfect answer to the problem, while sev
eral students and instructors have questioned its worka
bility. Many students and manv facultv members h
on what to do about this bug in the University student's
educational development.
But ideas alone will get us no place. Something has to
be done . . . something concrete and workable. Our first
effort to stamp out the exam racket may prove a stab in.
the dark with no desirable results. But at least we will have
had one lesson; we will have had something to go on, a nlan
upon which we can proceed in another direction to attack
the problem. We have no choice but to bend every effort
toward finding the best solution we can devise for elimi
nating mass final snatching.

both unknown to us, who thought twice Monday morning
before they walked across the campus lawn. Much to our
surprise, we actually saw this happen. The two men stepped
onto the grass, then hesitated. One said to the other, "Ob
well,' we're this far. Might as well go on." And they did. Bu
at least they were thinking about keeping our campus grass
intact. Congratulations again.

Thirteen engine students have "engineered" themselve
right to the top of their ranks. These men were honored at
the annual E-week banquet which brought to a close the
engineers' week to shine. At the top of the list was Donald
Cochran, who won the coveted award for being the out
standing senior in the college. Praise goes right on down the
line, to all those who were recoe-nizerl with nnrtinilnr hrmnrc
at the banquet. These 13 engineers can be set up a?
examples for all struggling students, examples of what it
takes to get to the top.
:. Undf.5 ' tedly one of the biggest names to appear on the
campus year will be that of Ralph Bunche, United
Nations mediator who won world-wide fame for his work
with the Palestine issue. There isn't one single student on
the campus who wouldn't benefit by hearing Dr. Bunche
when he gives his address next Monday at the Coliseum.
The occasion calls for the removal of all conflicts which
would prevent anyone from missing the speech, and we
irge all organizations to postpone their Monday night
meetings. The subject of "The United Nations Interven
tion" will consume the time allowed for the mediator's ad
rress. The topic alone demands our attention, and with Dr.
Uunche tiaborating on this particular subject, we eagerly

The Union is having an ever
lovin' birthday this week! Now
what do you think about that?
The dear old brick barn is 12
years old this week, and intends
to throw a big brawl Friday
night to show its appreciation for
your patronage.
Something new in the way of
Union entertainment will be
tried a lawn party. There will
also be dancing, refreshments,
movies, and a carnival. Sounds
like it might be quite a deal.
Next Sunday at 7:30 p. m. the
University radio department will
present a program called "I Can
Almost Hear It Now."
The two-hour musical revue of
the last half -century was written
and produced by Gay Marr, and
starts from 1900 and comes up
to date, stopping along the way
to show what life was like in
days gone by.
It seems that the program will
be of a humorous nature, be
cause besides Marr's stuff, addi
tional material was furnished by
Joe Miller, Bob Hope, Fred
Allen, Milton Berle, and Frank
The most famous historical
events of the last 50 years are
dramatized in a humorous man
ner. The show pokes fun at all
of the characters in the past five
decades, from the suffragettes
through "Flaming Youth," the
Charleston dancers to the psychos
of the forties.
All in all, it should be very
entertaining entertainment.
So don't forget to say "happy
birthday" to the Union, and re
member that if next week isn't
like this one was, the birthday
party will be held outside on the
lawn. Nice ...
And there's always lots going
on around here, so . , ,
Drop around!

Continuing in her warm, per

that by adopting wholesome

Clipsheet lists columns of kill

In a juicy story on television
the Clipsheet relates how Mrs.
H. W. Birdseed of Georgia and
her son had "patronized" a tele
vision set one evening, only to
be shocked by a play showing
drinking and fighting.
As unquestionable evidence as
to the effects of this beverage,
Mrs. Birdseed relates how she
mentioned it to her daughter-in-law,
"Just think, three drinking
scenes in less than 30 minutes."
"Three nothing, there were five,"
retaliates the daughter-in-law.
"This," opines the Clipsheet
writer, "just goes to prove tht
it is hard to keep account."
