THE 1950 FOOTBALL TEAM ... for a very success

commendation for Nebraska's return to the top ranks of
college football. BOBBY REYNOLDS ... for his many
honors awarded at the completion of the 1950 season

second team All-American, outstanding sophomore of the
Big Seven, outstanding back of the Big Seven and holder
of college football's 1950 individual scoring title. He also
broke both the rushing and scoring records of the Big
Seven. THE ADMINISTRATION ... for deciding to be
gin Thanksgiving vacation a day earlier than usual. If
the brief recess can start Wednesday morning rather than
Thursday as it has in the past, many of the students can
make it home by Thanksgiving day without cutting
classes. STUDENT DRIVERS ... for their enviable
safety record during the past year. Statistics show that
the percentage of 16 to 25 year-old drivers causing acci
dents in Lincoln is much lower than the national aver
ages. This record is especially commendable because of
the presence of the University and number of student
drivers. LEROY BURKET . . . whose art work has re

the story he mention. We were not In any way trying to achieve Irony, but merely

To the Editor:
In the November 29th edition of The Daily Nebraskan there
nneared an article headed "U.S. Asked to Join Peace Movement."
It told of a letter sent from behind the iron curtain to the free
students of America, asking that they join a great peace move
ment. The Communists are crying peace in order to weaken our
resistance and to lull us into a false sense of security. Obviously,
this letter is another part of the phony Communist peace propa
ganda program. Soviet propaganda has won for Communism large
sections of both Europe and Asia. Millions have been conquered
without a shot being fired. Without a doubt, Russian propaganda
is a dangerous weapon.
Why, then, did the "Daily Nebraskan" echo their phony argu
ments in that edition? At first I thought the article was an attempt
at irony which had failed. However, after rereading it, I find that
the article gives the impression that the writer endorses this plan.
Surely this is a false impression. With ever increasing evidence of
Communist treachery and hypocrisy, no thinking person would let
himself be duped. Of would he?

VImva, and, ithivA,
(This column is written at the
request of the Editor of The
Daily Nebraskan but is intended
to reflect no other opinion than
that of the author.)
No one, and not least the
American people, can afford to
minimize the dangers in the
new turn of affairs in Korea.
Simple logic would dictate that
if we were
right in our

p r inciple

then. If the South Korean com
munists were guilty of aggres
sion in June, the Chinese com
munists are guilty of aggression
Politics and diplomacy, how
ever, are not always dictated by
logic. It is relatiyely easy to up
hold principles and policies
against weak powers. It is some
thing else again when big pow
ers are involved. We may be
forced to run away today in or
der to be better prepared to fight
again some other day and in
tome more desirable place.
The present uncomfortable sit
uation stems from ignorance of
Chinese intentions. If the Pei
ping government is concerned
only with limited territorial ob
jectives, a new major war may
be averted by delaying tactics.
A. T. Anderson
If the Chinese are bent upon the
"liberation" of the entire Korean
peninsula we will have' a tragic
choice. We can either withdraw
from Korea with the least pos
sible cost in lives and write off
all of the eastern and southeast
ern mainland; or, we can declare
China and her ostensible ally,
the U.S.S.R., aggressors, and ring
up the curtain on World War III.
Korea is no place to launch such
a total war.
Hope in these times Is some
thing of a luxury, but the hope
of limited Chinese objectives
should not be excluded. For the
Peiping government to interpose
her authority in the Korean mat
ter would give her a bargaining
position in the U.N. which she
has hitherto not had. A world
anxious to avoid catastrophe
would not likely refuse to com
promise because of the violation
of a principle.
It is not unreasonable to spec
ulate that the Chinese may be
seeking only a better bargaining
position. That would mean a set
tlement of the Korean problem,
the Formosan problem, and the
problem of Chinese representa
tion in the United Nations. Many
Americans, with their habit of
the short view rather than the
long view, might find compro
mise under pressure repugnant,
but it could conceivably be the
only alternative to total war.
Meanwhile, Chinese interven
tion in Korea is nothing less
than overt aggression and it can
be interpreted to mean that pro
fessions of peace in the mouths
of communists are as hollow as
though uttered by the usual gar
den variety of international
bandits. There is plenty of as-

Today I thought that it would
be nice to take a trip behind the
mike at KNU, and explain to
you part of the working ma
chinery that makes your radio
tion. The radio
station is di

sections that Epstien
keep the programs flowing
smoothly five days a week.
Before I tell you about the
sections and how they operate,
I would like to say that they are
the same sections that any ra
dio station of 250 watt power
would hame. Station KNU is set
up in order that all students
can obtain actual experience in
every phase of radio work. Each
section is headed by a student.
In order that all students may
have a chance to gain know
ledge in all fields, the section
heads and their assistants are
changed every nine weeks. Now
that you have a brief idea of
how the function chart is plan
ned, here is an idea of how the
Business and administration
group is the only area that in
cludes faculty members as an
actual Dart of the section. The
remaining sections are staffed by
students only. Because the sta
tion is not a commercial one,
there are no funds to handle, so
business takes a back seat to the
The second area, program
ming, includes the planning of
all programs. This section desig
nates what programs will go
on the air at what times. This
work may sound simple, but in
reality it is a job that takes con
siderable time and effort. It is
up to the programming staff to
time the program, write the con
tinuity, pick the music for the
disc shows, and perform numer
ous other tasks that allow for
split-timing station precision.
The people that do the actual
performing of the shows are
part of the performance area.
These are the announcers and
actors who spend many hours
laboring before themike so that
you, the listener, can enjoy the
radio shows that are presented
Last of the areas is the en
gineering section. Technically
speaking, no station can operate
without engineers, nor could a
station function properly with
out any of the other sections,
for they are all dependent on
each other. The engineer sec
tion is the least glamorous of
the four areas. It is the respon
sibility of the group to install,
operate, and maintain all the
equipment of the station. Be
cause of the importance of this
section an engineer must be on
duty at all times.
To explain, in detail, the func
tions of all four KNU areas
would fill volumes, but I hope I
have given you the general idea
of how your radio station KNU
functions with the people that
you don't hear about, but with
out whom the station could not

The two performances have

crowds which have come to the

bach year Westbrook adds new
carol selections to the program.
According to Dr. Westbrook,
the singing of carolst began in
this country when the Phi Beta

gram many years ago.
David Bliss Reed of the Yale
faculty collected the tunes for
the program from European
countries and gathered the origi

sung in America.
This movement at Yale really
began the practice of singing
Christmas carols of all nations.
Soon people became interested

surance that neither Communist
China nor Soviet Russia have,
at present, the capacity for wag
ing a successful total war, but
this action suggests strongly
that both seem willing to jeop
ardize the chances of peace.
Faced by that threat there Is
no alternative but to prepare for j
the worst. It is that fact, what
ever happens in Korea, which
will surely alter the entire pat
tern of American life in the next
few months and years.
The question has been asked
if McCarthyism had not so di
vided the American people that
the Chinese felt that they could
move with impunity into the
Korean picture. It is highly un
likely that such calculations had
anything to do with the decision.
It still remains a tragic fact,
however, that McCarthyism was,
and is, one of the most despic- j
able hoaxes foisted upon the
American people. A few Ameri
can editors, who insisted to the
end that, "McCarthy has got
something," should publicly re
cant their errors and take a new ,
look at the facts of life.
