THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Wednesday, November 8, 1950
The Independent Student's association appears to be
fighting a losing battle for
statement published in Monday's Daily Nebraskan, the
newly-appointed president of the organization, Jim Toma
sek, declared: "ISA is on its way out, unless there is a
change in the type of support the association receives from
the 'Indpendent.' "
We agree that independent student support for the or
ganization has been sadly lacking in the past. With a pos
sible membership of over 4,000, ISA has succeeded only in
interesting a very small segment of students to carry the
brunt of an "Independent" organization.
As a political influence, the organization has been es
pecially weak. Very few times in the years immediately pre
ceding the Interim Council have unaffiliated students gained
seats on the Student Council or enjoyed a class position.
Some very outstanding men
places in campus activities,
their own untiring efforts and
But the faculty help and
student is just as strong as the student support for the or
ganization. The Student Council constitution was taken
from student hands and passed to the faculty for "revi
sion." The reason: discrimination in the election clauses.
The result: two years of work and effort by Interim Coun
cils, trying to draw up a constitution which will receive the
approval of the faculty regarding seating of Council repre
sentatives; namely, assuring the independents "fair and
Justification for this faculty support is at the present
time difficult to understand. If a group of students is not
interested enough to support its own organization, we fail
to comprehend the reasoning of the faculty to fight this
organization s battles.
It will be interesting to

Religious Speakers Visit
Campus Organized Houses
By Ann Gilligan
Thirty-seven houses 'had
speakers Monday night, Nov. 8,
and 12 houses had speakers
Tuesday, Nov. 8, as part of the
activities of Religion - in - Life
Week. Visiting leaders and reli
gious leaders from Lincoln are
participating in the visitation.
The talk at the Kappa Kappa
Gamma house by Father Swei
gart. University Episcopal
chapel, was based entirely on in
formal discussion. Humanism
and evolution were the topics
the girls seemed most interested
in. Father Sweigart stated that
the universe is fairly fixed, in
that it has much culture and a
On the subject of evolution,
the girls were told that "man is
distinguished from animals in
that man has a mind and is on
earth for a particular purpose."
He said that animals are on
earth mainly to serve man in
the way of food, clothing, and
various other necessities of life.
A discussion of unitarianism and
the Presbyterian, Episcopal, and
Mohammedan religions complet
ed Father Sweigart's talk.
Dr. Frank Court
"What Are the Earmarks of
a Worth-while Religion" was the
topic of Dr. Frank Court's speech
at the Alpha Phi house.
"A religion worth having
teaches people how to live with
themselves," Dr. Court said. The
Greeks' theory of "be yourself"
proves that man should be able
to live with himself and can
only do this by gaining the in
ner sense . of joy religion pro
motes by being close to God.
Dr. Court stated that each per

peace of mind. He told how

The book shows how some
youngsters who are emotionally
hurt don't make a sense of ad
justment to enable them to live
with themselves. Religion can
help any case of maladjustment.
"The only trouble with the
world lies in the hearts of the
people," quoted Dr. Court, to
bring out the fact that "religion
is needed to help us live with
one another." The Harvard
school of business stated that 75
percent of this country's business
failures are caused by inability
in getting along with people.
"Life is a continual state of ad
justment. Religion is a vital fac
tor in helping us adjust our
selves in this state."
Rev. Rolland N. Dutton, Prot
estant, discussed ."Science Ver
sus Religion" at the Alpha Tau
Omega house. He stated there is
no conflict between religion and
science, unless bad science mixes
with good religion, or vice versa.
He told of his World War II ex
periences and gave examples
from his travels in Russia, Bel
gium, and Holland to illustrate
his religious talk.
Rabbi S. H. Barron told mem
bers of Theta Xi'that the term
"Jew" does not refer to a na
tionality or race, but to a par
ticular religion. He said the Jew
believes in unity of one God.
