Neck or Not?
A proposal for supervised stu
dent necking on a faculty-sponsored
lovers' lane along the
wooded shores of Lake Mendota
was rejected by the Dean of
.Women at the University of Wis
consin. The Dean of Men tended to
agree with her.
Mrs. Louise Troxell, Dean of
Women, stated that the Univer
sity didn't plan to follow the
advice of Sociology Professor
Howard B. Gill and place benches
for love-making under "reason
Acting Dean of Men, Theodore
Zillman, agreed that the pro
posal probably would not be ac
cepted. Benches and Lighting
"But Td like to know just
where the benches would be and
what kind of lighting they'd have
before coming out for or against
the plan," he said.
President of the Student Board,
Karl Stighorst insisted however,
that Gill had the correct idea
when he suggested that boys and
coeds be permitted to smooch
under "standards of courtship"

"Campus policemen go sneak

dents in the act," he said. "We're
more interested in preventing
students from going off the deep
end than in lying in wait for
Find Our Answers
Meanwhile, at Norman, Okla
homa, a Union Oklahoma mar
riage counselor said couples
should "perhaps find their own
answers" to the problem.
"It's not a good idea to set
side one place and say to the
students, this is the place for
loving,'" said Mrs. Roberta Or
tenberger. She agreed wtih Gill
that "Couples will court no mat
ter what" and should have a
suitable spot for hand holding.
Otherwise, she said, prolonged
"goodnight kissing" in front of
girls' dormitories might result

NUCWA Adviser Terms
UN Week 'Successful'
"United Nations Week on the
University campus succeeded in
making students, faculty mem
bers, and Nebraskans aware of
the importance and existence of
the United Nations," Dr. S. J.
House, faculty adviser from
NUCWA states in summing up
UN Week activities.
Though the attendance at the
functions were not as great as
we would have preferred, how
ever, the week has far reaching
results, he adds. '
Some of the activities which
Dr. House refers to are the Cos
mopolitan club debate, the fac
ulty round table discussion, the
coffee hour and the All-Univer
sity convocation with Chancellor
More than 3,000 University
students and faculty members at
tended the convocation, which
was held at the Coliseum Thurs
day, Oct. 19.
House points out that people
in other sections of the country
refused to fly the United Nations
flag because they did not believe
it proper to fly the banner of
an organization of which Russia
is a member.
In Highland Park, 111., a United
Nations flag which was flown
below the U. S. flag was taken
down after a past president of

eral other organizations objected
In Groton, Mass., the town
board refused to accept the gift
of a United Nations flag for the
same reason. Plans to fly the blue
and white banner of the UN on
all city flagpoles in the city of
Aurora, 111., were discontinued
when objected to by certain citi
zens. "In view of this lack of faith
in the United Nations which has
been demonstrated in several sec
tions of the country, what has
gone on here at Nebraska is a
good indication that the people
here are not the isolationists that
they are reputed to be," House
"University students do appre
ciate and understand the purposes
of the United Nations," he adds.
A great many people in the
United States seem to believe that
the United Nations should be an
alliance of democracies. They
object to the presence of Russia
and her satellites in the organi
zation. "But the purpose of the or
ganization," points out Dr. House,
"is to make it possible for na
tions who disagree to get "to
gether and try to settle their
"One of the gravest mistakes
that we can make would be to
not take advantage of the oppor
tunities to attempt to reach
agreement with the nations and
the peoples we disagree with,"
the University faculty member
"Many Americans say of the
UN: 'There are commies in it,
and the United States is getting
too involved. We should stand
alone without the UN.'" Dr.
These people are exhibiting
nationalism to an extreme degree,
and they are hindering the work
of the United Nations toward the
establishment of world peace
through this nationalism, he adds.
Dr. House believes that too
much emphasis is put on the
United Nations activities in the
realm of interstate politics.
"The place where the UN is
doing its most magnificent job
is in the less publicized fields
that aren't so much news. Some
of these fields are opium con
trol, international health, UNES
CO and many others," continues
Dr. House, who is a member of
the political science department
staff, believes that on the whole,
United Nations Week was suc
cessful and educational.
"As the faculty sponsor of
NUCWA, I am very pleased with
the time and effort devoted to the
promotion of interest in the
United Nations which was shown
during United Nations Week," he

The movement to bring dis
placed persons to the Nebraska
campus will continue as long as
organizations offer aid as they
have during the first year of op
eration. The project which was first
given impetus by the Student
Council m 1949 was placed un
der the jurisdiction of the Re
ligious Welfare council during
the second semester of last year.
The Council regarded the DP
situation in terms of emergency.
Because of the time element in
volved, it was decided that the
Religious Welfare council could
act sufficiently fast.
Romaine Rasmussen was ap
pointed to "boss" the undertak
ing. Members of the committee
included Keith Stephenson, Mir
iam Willey, Alice Jo Smith, Mary
Sidner and Vladimir Lavko.

. A Splendid Idea
Many other groups felt that
the idea of bringing worthy for
iegn students who needed help
to the University was a splendid
idea. It was generally believed
that such students would make a
definite contribution to the cam
pus if given good starts.
One survey found that they
were industrious, democratic and
religious. The health record of
DPs compared favorably with
trjat of any normal American.
A number of organizations
Bob Mercier is $5 richer for
winning last week's Crystal Ball
contest in The Daily Nebraskan.
Mercier, who named the cor

Second place prize of $3 went
to Larry Carney, a University
football player, who selected the
winner in all games except the
UCLA-Stanford game. Carney
was the 36th entry.
Don Weber won the third prize
of $1. He also named all winners
but the UCLA-Stanford game.

They are Tonis Anvelt, Estonia,

war, the DPs have expressed
their deep appreciation to the

students have suffered experi
