THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Friday, January 12, 1951
In Retrospect .
The first semester Daily Nebraskan ends its pub
lication with this issue.
We are signing the traditional "30" of the journalism
profession to the Rag's service to the students and their
University during this first half of the 1950-51 school year.
It has not been an altogether pleasant task to report
the events and happenings of this semester.
It was not pleasant to summarize the uncertainties
of the world and our life in the immediate future. The
effects of the Selective Service on the students and the
University was extremely disheartening to report and
predict. No matter what was said or set forth or surmised,
there was always present the uneasy feeling of being help
less in a situation which so definitely affects our genera
tion. That the situation was beyond control of those most
involved was bitter medicine to swallow. Yet the problem
demanded attention and we attempted to meet the demand.
It was not pleasant to report that a group of stu
dents were involved on campus in a brawl, a fight or what
ever it may be called. The recording of the episode in the
files of The Daily Nebraskan was an unwelcome duty
a duty that we hope will not have to be repeated in tuture
There was no pleasure in criticizing the Student Coun
cil for supplying a crutch to the ISA or in scoffing at the
Miden college plan for ridding American campuses of Com
munists. Nor did we relish the suggestions for improving
the Student Directory or demanding a halt to the ex
cessive stealing from the Union book nook. It is unfortunate
that some of these situations had to exist, but it was our
duty to bring these occurrences to the attention of the
Yet despite this unpleasant news, the past semester
lias been a bright one. It was gratifying to follow the 1950
Cornhusker football team to their most successful season
since Rose Bowl days. AU-American Bobby Reynolds is
still continuing to burn up the pages of not only the Rag
but other state papers as well.

the students, College Day's plans, the numerous queens

luster to the semester.
It is possible that to some students the semester has
not teen too cheerful. The fluctuations of draft problems
created waves of certainties and uncertainties towards fu
ture education. These may have cast shadows on an other
wise bright period. Yet we cannot help but feel that the
pleasant happenings of the semester have outshone the

Robert Raun, President
Thank you very much for your letter of Jan. 10 pledging the
support of the Student Council and the student body in any move
necessary to set at naught the subversive activities of any indi
vidual or any group. This office has ever been vigilant in its ef
forts to protect the good name of the student body and of the
University. There have been times a plenty when we have felt we
stood alone in dealing with disciplinary problems, but in these
instances, we have always been prompted by the belief that at
tending the University was a high privilege and not necessarily a
matter of equity or legal Tight.
I promise you that this office will not deal tenderly with any
persons or group engaged in the perpetuation of any subversive
organization or any subversive actions that may Teflect upon the
good name of the University or of its student body. Neither shall
we deal tenderly with persons who commit physical violence
against others, indulge in cheating, drunkenness, or the destruction

oftmmunity is determined by the forthrightness and courage of the
individuals who compose it. The student body of the University of

can pretty much Cetermine what the intellectual and moral tone of
the institution is to be. a
'May I congratulate the student Council on its courageous stand
as exemplified in your letter and pledge it my support

We Tealize that the late issuing of the Directory this year
lessened its value a great deal. Although circumstances were of
such a nature than an earlier publication was impossible, plans
are now underway to insure fast delivery next year. Both the

gation; and the administration assures us that we will have their
The omission of some students from the 1950-51 Directory was
an unfortunate and unintentional mistake. Because the source of
our information was distributed to the various campus religious
groups, we had to go back to those groups in order to compile the
Directory. In this process, one religious-group was misplaced. We
are genuinely sorry that this oversight occurred.
Every effort is now being made to see that the next Student
Directory will be an early and complete one'
