Let's pause here, for strangely enough, this tale
possesses more truth than. Biblical prose.
This Independent legend is hardly outdated
It describes a situation that existed just ten years
ago on this campus. Furthermore, tbe story prob
ably sounds like a miracle to everyone who has
been watching the recent efforts of a few trying
to instni new life into a feeble Independent Stu
dents association an association that has nearly
succumbed to a serious ailment that may be diag
nosed as general disinterest.
There is still time for tbe Independents to
catch up, but they must hurry.
An opportunity is about to be lost if the Inde
pendents do not recognize it soon. It is an oppor
tunity for voice not only in ISA, but also on the
Student Council. It must be grasped before Mon
day, March 5, the filing deadline for ISA office
Beportedly, few have filed for positions. Only
a few seem to realize that with tbe enlarged pur
pose and scope of ISA recently specified by Presi
dent Tomasek, the Independent has everything to
gam and little to lose.
Ia last Wednesday meeting, the Council dis
cussed tbe pros and eons of a guaranteed seat on
the governing body to an Independent Men's or
ganization andor the Men's cooperative bouses.
BABW, under the proposed constitution, is en
titled to one member on the Council. However,
since there is no BABM or official independent or
ganization for men, the most eligible substitute
would be ISA if it exists.
Council members unanimously agreed that In
dependents should have more representation on
the Council, but if the Independents have no group
to represent, they can hardly claim a Council seat.
It shouldn't be difficult for the majority of the
Independents to realize that their desire for some
sort of organization may be satisfied in a strong,
virile ISA. And by the same token, it shouldn't
be hard to see that therein lies a good chance to
retain a guaranteed Council seat.
The Council seat hardly can be occupied by a
representative from the Men's Cooperative houses
because the houses have no unifying factor such
as the Independent coeds' BABW.
It is doubltful that Independents wd be as
sured Council representation if there is no ISA,
but they will be given a chance to testify before
the Council Wednesday, March 7 concerning their
interest and their reasons for desiring representa
tion. There is no better answer than ISA And if
the Independents permit it to die by not sending
students in whom they have confidence to file for
ISA positions, Monday, their cause may be lost.
Next Monday is Independents' Day, if they
wish to proclaim it. k. a.
Car owners will lose those "new look" license
plates with the issuance of the 1952 numbers.
The Nebraska lawmakers finally have given
way to the complaining and griping coming from
the masses who were dissatisfied with the nemTly
Complaints ranged from the plates being too
hard to read to the belief that the old number
system was changed for Scottsbluff who felt that
they had had, a larger population than some coun
ties with lower numbers.
Whatever the principal cause, the "old loose
will become effective next year and this year's
license plates will go down in the record as a bad j
bargain in Nebraska's budget. j
Tbe voice of tbe people was the reason for the j
change. In the future let's hope the people's repre- j
sentatives represent what the majority want and j
that the lawmakers profit from this useless and1
imsuccessful venture. s. g. j
First Problems First
To the Editor:
I don't want this letter to be
a direct reproach to the letter
of Paul Fenske entered in last
Thursday's Rag, but his article
went "against my grain," so I
am going to let'er rip myself.
First let us take a clear and
unbiased view of the world sit
uation with respect to the United
States. Below I have listed four
of the facts that we all must
1. Actually war has not ended
with Germany and Japan for
we have not as yet signed a
peace treaty with either one, al
though plans are being made to
do so for political expediency.
2. To further prove our de
gree of indulgence, we have had
more than 40,000 casualties in the
Korean campaign thus far. If
that isnt war what the hell is?
3. It is estimated that Russia
has direct control over 175 di
visions of well trained troops
that as of today haven't tasted;
blood for the last five years, j
4. At the present time we and,
our allies don't possess a force:
half that large Some of the
troops that we and our allies do
posses undoubtedly do not com
pare in experience, training and
equipment that the Russians pos
Maybe a lot of people don't
realize it, but we are up to our;
necks in this mess. We can't:
turn back now. Certainly, I'm
in favor of mediation, world
brotherhood, aid to unfortunate
countries, education and Jiving
by the ten commandments, but
that stuff takes time. I say we
should face first problems first.
The time for understanding and
brotherly love was years ago.!
If you think we have time to
torn to the Sermon on The Mount:1
or send relief funds to China,
