THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Thursday, February 1, 1951
Final Handshake . . .
Letters from two irate students appeared in the Let
terip column of yesterday's Daily Nebraskan protesting
posting the final semester grades. He complained of the
faculty action (or inaction) in two different instances. One
reader would have the faculty members make haste in
waiting with "baited breath" for the announcement of
The second letter, written by the president of the
senior class, was not as long or spiced with the bitterness
of the other but we believe the complaint is in good faith
and deserves further mention. The senior prexy was dis
appointed with the manner in which mid-year graduates
received their diplomas. He asserted that "after four
years they walked into the Administration building, gave
their name, were Handed a diploma, and walked out It
wasnt the type of ceremony that leaves a lasting impres
sion of school loyalty with the new alumni.
Administration officials had earlier declared that a
complete commencement exercise was impossible for the
January graduates because of existing conditions. This
fact was accepted by all and the situation understood. But
it seems logical to assume that for the third largest mid
year graduating class m the history of the University,
some sort of ceremony recognizing their efforts could have
The University has too few traditions to which grad
ates may cling. It may safely be said that the one mem
ory which stays with them the longest is that of the final
commencement exercise. Even a period of four long years,
filled with memories of classes, parties, Ivy Day, etc., may
soon be forgotten if that period is brought to an abrupt
ending with nothing more than signing your name and
receiving a diploma. The University has trained these
people in their special fields and should be partly respon
sible for their futures. Whatever is achieved by them
later will reflect on the University.
Just a hand shake by the head of the department or
an instructor would show the graduate that the Univer
sity approaches his efforts.

Is God Welcome
On Our Campus?
To the editor:
My concern for people and particularly my concern for students
gives me the sense of urgency -which is needed in order to write
this article. Now at a time when students are' lining up to give
service to their country, certainly things must be said.
What this article 3s about is, of course as the title -Thy Word
ii Truth." Now Just what do most people think about when they
hear of this phrase, or come across it in their reading?
The Thy 'would suggest God, Does anyone really down deep
totally disbelieve that God exists? I really doubt it When we
' on this globe get ready to leave, we 'begin to wonder about what
we 'Will find in the next And when people are asked if they be
lieve in God, very few win say that they do not believe.
Do many students flunk somewhat along the following lines?
Just what is the purpose of life on earth if not to get ahead, to
drink and fight and dance and work and play and sleep and to
drive a fast car? Do many of us try to live such a fast life or such
a full life occupied with suchsuperficialities that we do not see
that te live only with these in mind is to commit suicide?
4 "While we are in a university we like to think that we are
oroadminded and tolerant and that our education pretty well pre
pares us for this business of living. 1 cannot agree at all with this
conception. The university by its lack or mention of Teligion is
denying God's existence.
Mr. AVerage Professor by ignoring and denying his own faith
has done a. good job of thoroughly confusing Mr. Average Student.
After four years of indoctrination into the philosophy that a stu
dent's education consists of separate channels of studies, the col
leges cava done a much better job of turning out schizophrenics
than of turning out well-integrated persons.
The tiniversity claims that it tries to educate the student so
that be will learn bow to get along with his fellowmen. This is
impossible to do when the faculty and administration leaves out
the prune motivating force which deals with man's relation to man.
Or does the university thing that it can take the place of God in
the student's life?
'By denying that there is a God, the university is not fulfilling
its supposed objective which is to graduate persons who know how
to get along with their fellow men,
Tb Test f the title has to do with a subject that men have
thought about for many thousands of years. The philosophers will
tell you that facts are truth. What are facts but things that hap
pen in peoples lives? Can we leave out the book that tells about
many lacts that happened to many people a few hundred years ago?
The Bible Is about a certain person who was to save the world,
as promised by God. Can any of us think of a time when the world
needed saving more than now? The world means nothing without
people. People mean nothing in themselves without a Person to
Telate themselves to, who gets them away from their own petty
loused up' tt-iairs.
My Jeeling is that in our zeal to carry out religious freedom on
our campuses we nave done a good job of making them religious
vacuums so that when God is mentioned in a classroom the pro
fessors and students are actually shocked.
The time las come when we must stand up and say what we
-KaTiev and to live our lives the way that we talk. If this article
is too religious to be published in a student newspaper then I think
that ibis newspaper is ignoring the most -vital area of the Student's
hunger and sed for security.

Sub-7ero weather turns cam
pus fashion minds a little to the
practical side these days with
wool knee socks, and wool caps
and scarfs. The bright reds,
blues and greens make a pretty
contrast to the sparkling snow,
too. If you haven't experienced
the comfort and warmth of knee
socks as yet. you're missing the
most practical "high style" of the
Out of season? Maybe. But
with cotton prices soaring to un
believable" peaks, it might be
wise for the college coed to do a
little pre-season buying for her
spring and summer wardrobe. If
you've watched the advertise
ments for spring cotton dresses
or if you have noticed the sale
tags on cottons lately, you prob
ably realize what's happening to
th'e price of cotton yard goods
and cotton ready-mades.

What will you want in a cotton
this year? Checks and plaids are
going to be smaller none of the
large prints. Luxury cottons
have gold, silver, or copper
threads woven into them. There
are new patterns, new finishes,
new colors. Lilac from pink to
purple and golden burnt sugar
colors will be important in cot
ton and other fabrics.
There are new fibres we'll be
hearing about this spring.
They've been in the experimental
stage a long time, and some of
them still are. gBut we ll see
their tags in stores and magazines
and to get the best fibre for our
money we should understand
their benefits. Here are some
DYNEL: A fibre made out of
air and brine and gas. It is
wrinkle-proof, mothproof, mildew-proof,
resistant, easy to wash, fast to
dry. It can be woven into satin-.
flannel-, or jersey-like fabrics.
ORLON: It's like nylon, only
more so. It washes easily, won't
shrink, needs almost no pressing,
is not cold to the touch. It can
be woven into 100 per cent Orion
fabrics taffeta, flannel, jersey.
FIBRE-V: A synthetic fibre
soon to be blended with other
materials. It springs back, is
lends these virtues to what
ever it is mixed with.
VICARA: It's close to a fine,
soft wool. Made from corn pro
tein, it lends suppleness to rayon,
absorptiveness to nylon, resilien
cy to cotton, downiness to wool,
durability to all of them..
These are names that sound
like extracts from a textile dic
tionary. But rayon and nylon
sounded that way too when we
first heard of them as "miracle
fabrics. These names represent
new developments in textiles and
new wearing possibilities for old
fabrics. Look for them when you
do your spring shopping they'll
mean better life and looks to a
