Even if logical reasoning and theory could be
found as at basis for the present AWS women's
point system, the immediate plan Is not even effec

Twenty is the maximum number of point
coed is allowed. However, regardless f the ques
tionable fairness and reasoning of this quota, dis
crepancies are sllowed continually. Although
some coeds are Immediately "caught" with more
than 20 points, others mysteriously do get by
or have got by carrying many exceeding the limit.
Last year, for example, on campus leader car
ried 35 points for nearly semester while at the
same time taking over 17 hours of classwork. The
record this semester (before spring vacation) as
far as we can discover, was 34 points bein
carried by one coed. So long as AWS refus
to devise flexible point system to correspond
with grades, or does away with the system en
tirely on the assumption that college women no
longer must be tied to someone's apron strings,
the 20 limit should be vigorously enforced for
all women, not just a few. At least one other
coed now has more than 30 points. One has 23.
Several claim at least 24, and some 22. It is doubt
ful if any of these girls are ready for a "nervous
breakdown," but the point system remains
strictly enforced for a few; lax for others.
Of course, with new officers taking office and
others stepping down from their positions, it is
hard to have correct total of each coed's points.
However, most ct the above examples have been
true it least for en semestersimple time for
the governing body to take action.
So the case rests. Even now AWS fails to en
With the cost if living zooming higher every
day, two coeds on the Montana State university
campus have decided to cut down their expenses
by rolling their own cigarettes.
For 50 cents, the girls bought hand-roller

sorts of money-saving schemes.

As debate on loyalty oaths and academic free
dom on the nation's campuses blew hot and cold,
students at the University of Colorado expressed
their approval for the oath restrictions placed
on tetchers at that school.
The Associated Students o the University of
Colorado, official spokesman for Colorado stu
dents, said it was "satisfied that the whole affair
is being handled satisfactorily by the University. '
The Colorado board of regents ruled that all
faculty members must take the state teachers
loyalty oath and commitee to be set up to in
vestigate reports of subversive persons on campus.
The Silver and Gold, Colorado student news
paper, struck a blow for academic freedom, how
ever, when it printed this anecdote: "It seems that
a member of the University faculty was speaking
at a luncheon somewhere in Colorado recently.
At the conclusion of his address a gentleman arose
and said, 'Sir, I understand that they teach com
munism in the classes at the University. Is that
"The faculty member replied: "Sir, that is quite
true. We do teach communism in our classes. And
in our medical school we teach syphillis. But
we dont advocate either."
U Pelican: "A wise woman makes her hashaad
reel he's head of the hease when he's only chair
man of the entertainment committee."
From the "Herd on the Hill" column of the
Bradley Scout comes the following poem. It's
dedicated to St Louis, but after reading it, you
will probably want to dedicate it to about any
other basketball playing school that you know.

If you like to read, then the University of Miami
is the place for you. Students at that university
are now able to earn quality points for extra-curricular
reading. This new voluntary reading plan
is said to encourage Liberal Arts students to read
outside their major and minor fields of study.
The points will be awarded oa the lentik, com

LULLABY OF BROADWAY
The glitter and gayety of Broad

color musical extravaganza "Lul

at the Varsity.
With Broadway as their play

'All About Eve'
Evil Motives of
"All About Eve," being shown
at the Nebraska theater through
Monday, was one of the most
worthwhile films made in 1950.
Exploring the reactions of a
group of notable people to the
apparently innocent Eve, the
movie illustrates their general
human regard for such virtues as
love, sincerity, and morality
against Eve's dominating desire
to gain their professional success.
That these are theater people
is a circumstance which supports
the theme, for the prospect of an
acting award such as Eve finally
receives points up the apprecia
tion of fame which an actor
comes by too easily. It has been
said that the picture is at fault
because it is hard to believe that
sophisticated professionals of the
theater would be gullible enough
to let an ingenue whisper her
way into their hearts and then
steal their thunder.
But in a nation which has seen
Alger Hiss come into unsound
fame, the idea of an interloper
on the traditional ladder of suc
cess is a good one.
Eve Casts Spell
A great actress, her lover, and
her two best friends, these people
are brought under the spell of
Eve. To them, Eve is a spectac
ular girl because she is complete
ly innocent and at the same time
accomplished. To us. Eve is a
social viper, whose perfection be
comes more and more implausi
ble. We enjoy watching these
people learn with us all about
Eve. The criticism has been made
that Anne Baxter furnishes Eve
with little more than a beautiful
physique. But there, it seems,
lies the brilliance of her per

of girl who looks best in a mir
ror, where her evil motives are
not reflected. Upon the basis of
her performance in thais picture,
one may expect Anne Baxter, a
distinguihed actress at 27, to send
more than one of the screen's
aged heroines into retirement
She need not resort to Eve's de
vices. Yet one leaves the theater
with the feeling that Anne Bax
ter herself could not be trusted
and was not trttsted perhaps
when the Academy Awards were
presented last night
It is a credit to American taste
that "All About Eve" has been
enjoyed in spite of the restraint
which is placed upon the emo
tional struggle of the movie in
order that its depth can , be
probed. The direction of Joseph
L. Mankiewicz, who did "Letter
to Three Wives" previously, must
