midland college at Fremont has initiated a plan which
vney hope will suppress communism on the campuses of
America. The plan calls for a pledge by all students in the
United States "to allow no berth for communism on the
campuses of our universities and colleges." Begun by "The
Midland," the school's weekly paper, the appeal to students
is hoped to influence a national movement. To further this
goal copies of the first issue of "The Midland" have been
circulated to Gov. Val Peterson, nationally-known com
mentators and columnists, and high government officials
including President Truman.
The movement is in its infancy. If it accomplishes it5
hope to spread throughout the United States 'within the
next six months to a year, and if it accomplishes its ad
mirable purpose, Midland college will enjoy a great deal of
well-earned praise.
We firmly believe in the aim of this plan. We are, just
as every other American student should be, against any
subversive activity in the United States and especially in
the University where we spend most of year. No one but
a communist would believe otherwise.
But the execution of the movement raises some ques
tion in our minds. Suppressing communism is not as easy
as signing- a pledge. A communist would be one of the first
to join such a movement for the sake of keeping his affilia
tion with his party a secret. Newspaper accounts of the un
American activities trials will show that a communist be
lieves the end justifies the means. It is not beneath his
dignity to lie or perjure himself it if means furthering the
aims of the party.
The pledge would also involve those who were not
communists but believed strongly in freedom of political
beliefs. The University of California discovered this com
plication when they demanded loyalty oaths of all faculty
members. Many California teachers refused to sign the
oath, not because they believed in communism but because
they believed such action jeopardizes academic freedom.
Our remarks on the execution of the plan are not con
cerned with tomorrow's signatures. We are looking ahead
to the time when every student and every faculty member
will be required to sign the pledge in order that a college
or university can become one of the movement's members.
And because we do not believe the movement would
accomplish its objective, even though we are stronelv in
favor of its aim, we question whether the University would
profit by approving the movement and becoming one of
its supporters.
That is our opinion what is yours ?

Dear Cornhuskers,
We do hope you are listening, for what we have to announce is
very much worthwhile.
1 If a war-ravaged student from some foreign land, with a d
just as eager and capable as ours, were to sit across your desk 1
tell you the mess he is in, you would burst with pardonable priae
as you gave him a ten-jpot, 25, 5, or even just a couple of
But, as it is, he cannot even get a book, let alone come to see
you . . .
... which does not stop us well-fed, book supplied Cornhuskers
from helping thousands of those boys and girls just the same. You
and I do not care about the fellow student for whom the lights have
gone out.
We are announcing to you the campaign of AUF All University
Fund. This is the chance for all University students, all instructors,
all employes to join in one happy contribution to help others get an
education. More than 50 per cent of every gift goes to the aid of
students receiving assistance through WSSF World Student Service
Fund. A part of your gift is used to rehabilitate afflicted by infantile
paralysis, and a small part goes to the Community Chest to back
up its contribution to campus organizations.
During the next few weeks you will be solicited by a student
who is giving both money and a lot of time. Please cooperate cor
dially, and sign your pledge card for just as large an amount as
you find it in your heart to give. You can pay this money either in
installments before Feb. 25, 1951 or the total amount at once.
Remember, this is AUF, the only campus solicitation that will be
made of you all year.
Please join the rest of us in generous help to those students of
today who will lead the nations of tomorrow to be at peace with the
world. We are counting on you, and thank you sincerely. ,
Faithfully yours,
Jo Lisher, AUF director.

WANT A BEANIE? Four upperclassmen stop five freshmen to
persuade them to get their frosh beanies. The five are in the
process of registration en route to the Military and Naval Science
building from the Coliseum. Innocents, Tassels and Coed Coun
selors are selling the red beanies with the white '54 on them.
Campus tradition dictates that freshmen wear the caps until the
first snow unless they are victorious in the annual freshman
sophomore tug-of-war.

to come over and fill out a card.

lots of points to be had.
As for upperclassmen, if they
have worked for the Union before,
they know what a kick it is, and
their applications will also be ac
cepted early next week.
The big event that the activities
committee is presenting this week
is, of course, the Frosh Hop, which
is co-sponsored by the Innocents.
This event, which is for the fresh
men who would like to get ac
quainted with each other, is really
not too bad. In fact, there are
times when the stag line exceeds

Last May the college unit as

Hanson Directs
The veterans hospital project
is under the direction of Joan
Hanson. Last year Miss Hanson
and Bill Hemke produced a bi
weekly two hour radio show at
the hospital. The musical re
quest program was broadcast to
the entire hospital over the ra
dio system.
According to Miss Hanson:
"The system at Vet's is com
parable to that of a 250 watt
radio station. The Red Cross
volunteer is his own engineer.
The equipment consists of the
'Board,' two dual speed turn
tables and a makeshift trans
mitter that receives and trans
mits to the patients and to vari
ous parts of the hospital." She
reports that one of the popular
requests is "Don't Fence Me In."
