According to news reports, State Senator Tvr

the University to televise its home football games

prove popular with many TV set owners." The
World-Herald goes on to comment, "If TV should
reduce average attendance at Nebraska games, the
University's presently self-sustaining athletic de

Herald queries, "Is the Legislature prepared to
make up this loss through appropriations?"

Both solutions seem highly improbable.
Another aspect of mud in the

thoughts of love. This may be
termed "mud-slinging" in the in

in a situation such as this would

Advice to 20-Year-Olds, or
Don't Forget a Birth Certificate
By Mary Iou Luther
If you were born after February, 1930, it won't
be long before you can:
(1) Exercise your voting franchise.

the time for you to audit Polly Sigh I. (You

Here you will learn that when you go to the
polls it won't be like those democratic elections
in college where every quarter purchased a ballot
and the richest party always won.
You have to wait 21 years for this ballot
(Union service is better) and even after four years
of practical ballot-stuffing: experience you find
yourself handicapped. The faction forgot to tell
you how to vote!
After struggling through the ballot from Aus-

How many times have stu
dents classified and typed their
various professors? I haven't got
the statistics on the matter, but
I don't doubt the total is a stag

a sum stagger?)

garden variety: the This-is-Ob-

there seemed to be nothing left but the Australian
kind) you are amazed at the candidates' lack of
foresight. They forgot to include their affilia
tions! Those 21-year-old pledges know the Greek
alphabet, but they'll never be able to recognize
a name. (One of the shortcomings of a college
education but think of the votes wasted.)
(2) Get married without your parents' con
sent. Think twice before you marry that Fizz Ed
major. He does have a well-developed physique,
but calisthenics before breakfast can prove tiring-.

The Iowa State Daily recently
reported that student reaction to
the draft had been "much differ
ent than many people expected."
"The students have taken the
situation into hand," claims the
Daily, "they have made deci
sions" According to the paper, the stu
dents have learned to adjust
their study habits, their plans for
the future, and have buckled
down to face the situation
"straight in the eye," despite the
strain of war hysteria.
'Don't Care Attitude
According to the Daily, mid
western and southern colleges
alike were suffering from "don't
care anymore" and disillusioned
outlooks. They have also received
reports from many colleges
dents being lost to the services.
"The Iowa State College cam
pus remained relatively quiet,"
observes the Daily. "Students at
this midwestern college weren't
influenced toward apathy and
pessimism by the current crisis as
was reported by other colleges
It also maintains, "The major
ity of students and faculty of
Iowa State responded calmly and
optimistically to the possibility of
the United States sliding into an
other World War."
Low Grade Decrease
To follow up this observation,
the Daily reported that there was
an actual decrease in mid-term
grades of "D" and "F" reported
for the winter quarter in com
parison to previous quarters. It
pointed to the plight of the Uni
versity of Oklahoma where, in

contrast, 46 percent of the stu
dents were reported to have come
through with grades of "D" or
"F" after mid-semester exami
nations. A Member of the Iowa State
scholarship committee was quoted
as saying, "It seems students here
are taking things a bit more seri
ously than at other colleges. They
want to keep a good record in
college, so that when they do
come back they will have no
trouble re-entering. They are al
so keeping their grades up so that
they may have a better chance
of taking advantage of any new
favorable draft regulations."
