Stolen Exams . . .
Once again, examination time is upon us. And pre
paratory study is taking top priority with most students as
they ready themselves for the exams.
Yet, earlier than usual, approximately 113 members of
one University class are talking about exam stealing be
cause they recently discovered a few persons are back at
their old racket. It may seem silly to talk about the same
thing year after year when test times come up, but the
problem of exam stealing confronts us again.
A dictionary defines a parasite as an animal that lives
upon an organism at whose expense it obtains some ad
vantage without compensation. Again this year, a few
parasites are at work on our campus. And everyone di
rectly affected in this class of 113 students would like to
lay hands on this animal which some people classify as a
human being.
It happens that at one of the college libraries just re
cently, a nearly-complete set of sample exams available
to all 113 students were stolen. And as usual, the dirty work
happened at the worst time two days before the class was
to be given a six weeks exam.
The stolen exams were typical examples of those given
In previous years and many students made reference to
them before a test. And many claimed such reference was
helpful. But, some person or persons decided that they
could better benefit at the other person's expense. And so
the others suffered.
Perhaps the parasites figured that it was easier to de
prive their fellow students of the opportunity to use these
sample tests, rather than to steal the "real thing."
It goes without saying that this old stealing racket has
been a little overdone in the past, and the parasites' "bene
factors" are fed up with it. The

If Harvey Rabbin's letter in Thursday's Rag reflects the views
of even a small number of the University students, certainly we are
in a precarious situation. Perhaps the Crusade for Freedom may at
times take on "tinny football atmosphere," and the petition may
contain many "hackneyed phrases," but certainly a crusade for free
dom should be a worthy objective of every University student.
I wonder if Mr. Rabbin, enjoying his freedom and privileges
here at the University, realizes what the situation is like in many
other parts of the world. I spent three months this summer in Ger
many, during which time I was able to get back of the Iron Curtain
in east Berlin for short periods. The Communists use every kind of
a crusade, bell ringing, parades, and slogans, to stir up support and
enthusiasm for Communism. They must think such crusades work
or they wouldn't spend so much time and effort on them. Eastern
Berlin and eastern Germany are literally plastered with signboards
and slogans proclaiming the merits of Communism. In fact, all of
the signs designating the Russian sector of Berlin are labeled "you
are now entering the democratic sector of Berlin." Appeals to sign
the phony Stockholm Peace Appeal were everywhere. All the build
ings devoted to Communistic propaganda have huge signs across the
front of them saying "German youth for work and peace." The
Communists know the value of crusades, parades, bell ringing, and
the like.
If Mr. Rabbin were a student in a university behind the Iron
Curtain, he would have to be able to defend thoroughly Marxian
Doctrines and explain the Soviet Doctrine before he would be al
lowed to graduate. The first question asked a student in the Uni
versity of Leipzig recently was, "Explain and define the third chap
ter of Karl Marx, "Das Capital." Students in secondary schools in
east Germany have to write compositions on the political structure
of the Soviet Union and on Soviet doctrines. The principal of the
school harangues them three or four times a week on the merits of
communism and the evils of western capitalism. Two girls were ex
pelled from a high school in Leipzig because a classmate reported to
the Communistic officials that
Agreed, crusades may be a little "tinny" at times, but they are
a lot better than controlled thought and forced Communistic rallies
at the end of the school day.

To the Editor:
Today I read about a man biting the hand that feeds him. His
name was Harvey Rabbin. Mr. Rabbin, who has the great fortune
to live in a land where people can gain a college education whether
they are black or white, Christian or Jew, Republican or Demo
crat, has the gall to suggest that our desire to spread such equali
ties and freedoms to less privileged peoples of the world is to make
a mockery of the dignity of the individual. Were those men who
met in Philadelphia one hundred and seventy-four years ago to
sign a very similar scroll, asserting their beliefs in freedom, also
making a "mockery of the dignity of the individual?" Or were they
too victims of what the author of yesterday's Letterip calls "some
brand of herd spirit" but what you and I call the American Way of
The Crusade for Freedom is not a political football (if Mr.
Rabbin will pardon the use of such a "tinny" word), nor is it a
spontaneous demonstration. Great ideas have always come from
great leaders and who would attempt to deny the sincerity or the
abilities of such Crusade sponsors as Dwight Eisenhower and Lu
cius Clay. In General Eisenhower's own words, the Crusade for
Freedom is "a campaign sponsored by private American citizens
to fight the big lie with the big truth."
Are these the words of "political cynicism' or were -the words
of yesterday's author truly the cynical comments? Mr. Rabbin, I
fear that you are guilty of sniping at the very freedoms that have
put you where you are today.

cussions, Prof. Curtis M. Elliott
of the economics department,
and Joseph S. Sewall, manager
of the Social Security field office
in Lincoln, will speak and anal
yze the topic.
A briefing on "How to Partici
pate in Discussion" will be given

in the Ag Union.
Officers elected were as fol

Jack Manning, vice-president;

A committee was formed to ob

to have some ideas with which to
pattern a constitution for the Ne

The main purpose of the
organization is to provide the
necessary animals, judges and
other equipment for the Ag col

in conjunction with the Farmer's
Fair and College Days.
The club also hopes to have
some sort of Rodeo practice ses

the show if they can be arranged.
But these plans are entirely tent

the proper authorities before any
action can take place.
