A sensitive, hard working,
roughneck named Jack is John
Lane's most unforgettable stu
dent. Lane, a sociology instructor,
met Jack when the roughneck
enrolled in one of his classes at
the University of Oklahoma. At
the time, Jack was completing
the process of re-entering school.
A short time before this, he had
been expelled from the univer
sity for cheating on an examina
tion. When Jack first enrolled in
college, gambling, drinking,
fighting, and cussing were his
favorite pastimes. However, he
was a roughneck in more ways
than one. The term roughneck is
used by oil men as a nickname
for an oil driller. This is a job
which includes hard physical
labor. Jack roughnecked for eight
hours a day.
Not satisfied with merely one
job, he also worked in a clothing
store. The second job took four
hours of his time each day. All
of this was in addition to the 12
credit hours he was carrying at

five minutes. Because of this
frequent 300 yard dash, Lane
nicknamed him "Dagwood."
Another of Jack's unforgetable
traits was his passion for argu
ments. At a drop of a hat, he
would argue or bet about any
thing any place, any time. And
to top it all, he would never for
get an argument.
A few years ago, he and Lane
disagreed as to whether or not
Al Jolson had the lead part in
the motion picture, "The Death
of Washington Square." Jack, an
avid Jolson fan, swore that Jol
son had the main part in the
movie. Lane disagreed. A short
time ago, the instructor received
an envelope containing a news
paper clipping. The item was an
advertisement proclaiming the
re-issuipg of "The Death of
Lane exclaimed, "He's unfor
gettable from that point of view.
He'll probably remember that
argument 50 years from now."
The instructor added that
Jack's cussing was another un
forgetable trait. Lane would
shudder every time the rough
neck opened his mouth. A re
mark such as this would usually
be uttered: "Oh! hell, John, you
know that isn't right." But this
did not cause trouble between
the two men. They were very
close friends and still carry on
correspondence with each other.
In his second semester at
school, Jack announced his en
gagement. Later he got married.
This proved to be the turning
point in his life. He was a
changed man. He buckled down
and earned good grades.
Time for Studies
Because his wife had a small
income of her own, Jack was
able to give up roughnecking
and work only at his clothing
store job. This enabled him to

The speaker was born in Eng
land and graduated from the
University of St. Andrews in

ters in medieval and modern
European history in 1935.
Professor Campbell worked at
excavations of Verulam and di
rected the excavation .on the site

During the war, Campbell was
instructed to stay by his teaching
post and during this period he
wrote many educational books.
He received his naturalization
papers in June, 1950. Campbell is
now an American citizen. His
wife was a member of the Amer
ican Board of Missions.
Campbell has spent some time
in Bruges, Ghent, Marseilles,

spend more time on his studies.
He had chosen to major in
economics. After getting married,
he became very enthusiastic
about his school work. He was
constantly asking questions.
But Jack pulled no punches
about his interest in academics.
He thought of an education- as a
means of making money and
nothing else. He made no bones
about it, openly acknowledging
this. He was fascinated with the
subjects concerning his major.
But he had no use for mathe
matics and other requirements
which he termed ridiculous.
Lane recalls that before
sociology examinations Jack
used to say, "John, I got this test
down cold." But the roughneck
never seemed to "cool" the tests
quite as well as he predicted.
As far as sociology was con
cerned, Jack was fascinated with
the study of crime and criminol
ogy. Marriage and the family be
came his favorite subject during
the time he was courting his girl.
When the topic of ancient mar
riage was discussed, he declared
that marriage founded on reasons
of convenience and work was
Unconventional as he was on
most subjects, he could not
visualize marriage existing on
anything but love and romance.
The roughneck had an exciting
background. His father was one
of the best oil drillers in the
business. Consequently, his fam
ily was constantly on the move,
going from one oil field to an
other. He was never able to stay
in the same grade or high school
for more than a year at a time.
Lane declares that he will
never forget "that wonderful
roughneck." The instructor will
always remember how Jack
would sit in class, chewing a big
wad of tobacco and waiting for
an opportunity to start an argument.

Members Discuss Various
Teacher Rating Possibilities
Reports and ideas from the Bi Seven Student Gov

Rob Raun, Council president, presented the system Under
which the independent students are organized at Oklahoma
university. This organization op
erates solely as a service organ'
ization for independent students.
How this can be applied to the
ISA problem at Nebraska is not
known by Raun but he reported
that new ideas gathered from the
convention will be applied to the
situation and that other schools
in the Big Seven share the same
Betty Green, chairman of the
student activities committee,
asked the Council members:
"Should ISA continue to be
recognized as a campus organiza
tion by the Student Council?"
Recommendation by the Coun
cil was that no action be taken
on the ISA problem until the
suggested poll of the opinions of
all Independent students is tabu
lated. Include Poll
Attempts are being made to
have this poll included in regis
tration forms for second semester.
The teacher-rating program
which is being worked on by
Council members was discussed
by the academic committee at the
convention. Miriam Willey was
Council delegate on this commit
tee. Kansas and Iowa State have
teacher rating programs the re
sults of which are made avail
able to individual faculty mem
bers and not administration of
ficials. Campus Improvements
Kent Axtell, reporting on the
campus improvements committee,
stressed that results of the rating
program will not be used as a
criterion for "hiring and firing"
of faculty members.
Proposed plan for the program
would include passing out of
criticism questionnaires in classes
on a strictly voluntary basis.
Raun said that he was "only
sorry that the whole Council
could not have attended the con
vention. I don't know how
three days could have been better
Hans Dieter Berendt, exchange
student from Bonn university,
was a guest at the Council meet
ing. He is collecting ideas on stu
dent government in the United
States to take back to his coun
try. Raun reported that a block of
seats for faculty members will be
reserved in the west bleachers of
the Coliseum for next Tuesday
night's basketball game. "If the
plan is successful, it will be con
tinued," Raun said.
The Coed Counselors will
sponsor their annual Christmas
tea this afternoon in Ellen Smith
hall from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
The tea will climax the work
done by Big Sisters this semester
in helping the freshmen coeds
adjust to college life.
Main event of the tea will be
at 4:30 p.m., when Marilyn
Campfield, president, announces
the 18 outstanding Coed Counsel
ors of 1950.
The Counselors to receive the
recognition will be chosen by
their sincere interest shown in
the organization, project work
such as the charm school book
review, friendship dinner and
freshman party, actual contacts
with their little sisters and their
ratings as given by little sisters
on the evaluation sheets.
In regard to choosing the out
standing Counselors, Miss Camp

ors are doing outstanding work
in helping make the program
this year a success, but the ones
who were selected are the out
standing Coed Counselors."
