THE DAILY NEBRASKAM
Unlogical Point System
IVs spring again. Campus elections, picnick
ing, partying and the women's point system.
With the advent of coed elections the governing
body for women students, familiarly called AWS,
starts polishing its books and dons glasses to ex
amine the point system. Three days before coeds
trudged to polls to select officers for the next
year in four campus organizations, AWS pub
lished its revised point system. Quite an ap
propriate time obviously not without signifi
cance. A year had passed since the last frantic count
ing spree of most coeds, and the time has ar
rived for a new purge. New campus organizations
have sprung up during the year, others have
gained prestige and others were revamped so
they underwent the scrutiny of AWS and their
favorite and most well known activity.
The University campus ' is noted for its point
system among the women at least. Evidently
the men have reached a mature enough age to
measure their own capacity. Twenty points girls
you know, that's the maximum. You may have
a PBK average, be working diligently in several
campus activities be in prime health, and the
girl next to you in sosh may barely be main
taining a 4.0 average, but you both are limited
to a strict 20 points. You may hold office in an
organization that spurts with activity for a short
period during the year and then lies compara
tively idle, but you still are blessed with the
8, 10 or 16 points originally piled on you.
On the other hand, you may be leading an
organization which has been given a lower per
centage of points in comparison to another. It
may be fine so far as you are concerned re
realize quite well that if it isn't pointed high, the
organization does not have so much prestige as
the next one whose president receives 16 points.
Oh yes, the number of points accredited group
is to be no indication of the organization's im
portancemerely of the relative amount of work
attached. If there were some precise way this
could be determined it would be alright. Gen
erally it doesnt and juniors anticipating Ivy Day
eagerly count the number between 12 and 20
possibly eliminating candidates holding office in
organizations lightly pointed.
The point system is to prevent coeds from over
insists AWS and certain
The aim is splendid; the
means defective. There are too many positions
requiring an untold amount of work in which a
girl, if she has no better sense, can "work her
self to death." The point system can be evaded
if a coed starts out right. Certain campus posts
offer a great deal of prestige and hard work and
yet are not pointed. Others that carry so many
points are uncomparable to organizations whose
workers tackle the job from day to day without
a two or three week lapse once in a while. Here
is where the point system fails.
When a coed arrives at college, she is at least
17 or 18 years old, and presumably of high enough
intelligence to complete a high school education
and potentially, a college education. Yet, she
arrives here and is met with a point system, prob
ably reminiscent to the one she might have un
dergone in high school. College is supposed to
help a coed mature emotionally, physically and
mentally. Certainly some restrictions must be
placed on her. But a coed who does not realize
the importance of maintaining health when she
arrives, and is foolish enough to do more than
she is capable of certainly shouldn't be in college
in the first place. And secondly, no point sys
tem will flaunt her. She will seek unpointed
activities to release energy. That is why the
AWS point system has failed and caused so much
antagonism among coeds.
If a coed cannot decide herself what her ca
pacities are at college age, no one else should
be responsible. It seems odd that no restrictions
are placed on the time a coed may spend study
ing, and yet to the far other extreme, even hint
at campus activities, and you are restricted. So
long as a coed can maintain a high average, her
expansion of activities shauld be developed ac
cordingly. As for her health, a point system
will not prevent her from ruining it now or
in the future when it is even more important.
The new AWS board is taking office now. They
should consider the point system carefully. Cam
pus coeds have elected them in faith they will
represent their views. They should consider
this closely for they too have to face another
election pointed at that. j.k.

They wrote (and I quote), "We note that a
recent physician's survey indicated that college
graduates have far more headaches than those
with little education.
