To this Editor:
In lieu of the fact thai The Daily Nebraskan is published by
the students of the University of Nebraska as expression of student
news and opinions only, I am asking that you print my opinion on
fraternal discrimination. It is a crime that this exists on one of the
very colleges which was a participant in the Mock World Court,
the Model U. N. session and is preparing men who some day may
defend the United States in some problem on the international front.
I am speaking of the law college of course, and the denial of one
of its fraternities to pledge a freshman student who meets all the!
requirements. This, very group has voted along with the national
group with which it Is affiliated to drop the restrictive clauses bar
ring negroes.
In the face of that move they have refused to admit N. Fitz, a
Negro. Can it be that this talk of world citizenship and a U. N.
means something in the face of a stark denial to accept a fellow

A Student Council election this spring is further com

the Council's constitution into practice. The emphasis in

student government will be contradicted. .

Too Much Talk
Teachers' Pitfall
College teachers talk too much.
That is the belief of Professor
Neil P. Bailey, head of the De
partment of Mechanical Engi
neering at Rensselaer Polytech
nic Institute.
In a memorandum of "Teach
ing Pitfalls," which he prepared
for the use of members of his
department, he stated, "The
worst temptation in teaching is
excessive talking by the instruc
tor. Professor Bailey declared that
the greatest asset of any teacher,
interviewer or administrator, is
the ability to ask wise and pene
trating questions and then have
the patience to await the formu
lation of answers. One nicely
sharpened and carefully aimed
question will often bring to a
head hours of student thinking
about a subject.
Pointing out that too many
questions asked in class are
either superficial, out-ol-focus,
or too general, Professor Bailey
said that all too often teachers
fail to await a student's answer.

Editorial Briefs
"Enviable record" was the declaration of praise re
ceived for the University College of Engineering's quality
cl education. The New York state education department has
reported that all Nebraska graduates who took the profes
sional engineering examination were able to make the
grade. This record is especially commendable in view of the
fact that only three engineering colleges in the United
f tates came through the exam with this perfect score. Dean
Itoy Green and tht engineering faculty certainly can feel
f roud of this achievement in turning out such outstanding
products from the College of Engineering.

resulted in a few heated words on the part of faculty mem
bers and students. But a knock-down, drag-out fight was
averted. Accusations and insults were held to a minimum,
and the entire plan of expansion was settled in a friendly
manner to the satisfaction of both city and Ag leaders.
The next step was to find out how the students them
selves felt about expansion. And their votes showed that
they desire the Regents to give permission for additional
Union facilities. , "

campus life of University of Nebraska students for many
years to come.
