THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Little Man On Campus
The Letter ip Column
It has been the policy of The Daily Nebraskan in the
past to print no letters without complete signatures of the
authors. It was felt that unless a student had enough in
testinal fortitude to sign the letters, they were not worthy
And in one light this conclusion is right. A person
should have the nerve to sign his own letter and to stick up
for what he believes. But in another sense it is depriving the
student, who for various reasons, is unable to sign his name
to a pertinent letter. For instance, a student worker in some
University building may feel a proposal is being advanced
that is a detriment to "him or his working conditions. He
wants to speak his mind and to go on record as disfavoring
this certain plan. He is prevented in doing so, because such
a published opinion may cost him his job. This is not a
hypothetical example it happened to a student last year.
This semester, to avoid repitition of such circumstances
and to provide the best possible service to the students, The
Dailv Nebraskan is initiating a policy of pen names.
Regardless of the use of
one requirement tor eacn letter. Ana tnat is, eacn letter
must be accompanied by the name and address of each
author. If ve are in possession of this information, your
letter will be published with or without a pen name, de
pending upon your request We must require this in order
to insure both this paper and the students against those who
would take advantage of the
own selfish interests. These

It is hoped this policy will end further problems of the
Letterip column. It is also hoped that this column will be
pen to more students for their use and their betterment.
It is your column to use as you wish.

The men in white (Corn Crib
waiters) have quick pick-up but
some let downs by their student
following. They complain when
"fussy" coeds can't, decide or
change their minds on orders or
when fellows with lots of rime
and nothing to do sit in booths
without buying a coke or a cup
If anyone is seized with a !
paper tearing mood. -they advise
him to avoid the Crib with its
many napkins as bait
It is said that the girls are
harder to please than the men
and sometimes put on the '"better
than you" attitude. When blow
ing paper wrappers off straws
became too popular, the waiters
decided to hold the containers
until the straws were extracted.
Several years ago the waiters
had a code they used to call
orders. Now, after much confu
sion they just say "two cokes.".
A top flight waiter can be
turned out in about fifteen days
if he has the necessary balance
to carry four glasses, full up and
dripping, in one hand. Shifting
feet and quick dodgfng are
necessary during rush hours
when people whip to and fro
with no worry about a head-on
Between the hours of 3 and 4
the Crib is the busiest- At this
time there are approximately 100
cokes sold. Cokes are the most
popular in the lall and spring
along with lemon and lime sodas.
Coffee rates high in the minter.
The oddest orders are griEled
donuts and a race horse. The race
horse is a coke with everything
