To the United Nations Political
si i .
In view of the forthcoming
sessions of the United Nations
political committee at the Union,
April 3, 4, 5 and 6, the Indian
delegation wishes to state its posi
tion relative to the Korean situa
tion. At no time since the outbreak
of hostilities has there been a
more pressing need for vigorous,
positive action to resolve that con
flict in a peaceful yet un-biased
manner. A refusal on the part of
the political committee to take
such action will eventuate in al
most immediate global war and
international chaos. We are con

its own narrow brand of chauvin

policies at the front, and by his
actions and ill-timed remarks is,
possibly unwittingly, subverting
the stated aims and objectives of
the peace loving United Nations.
The United States is apparently
loath to press for anything but a
purely military conquest in Korea
at a time when a political soution
is a necessity.

by the bigots in the Kremlin

Korea. By its tacit supports both
morally and militarily, of the
Peiping and North Korean gov
ernments it has inspired and per
petuated a bitter fratricidal war
among the peoples of Korea. With
a stoicism worthy of the Dei Bud
dha, the leaders in the Kremlin
have refused to compromise or
concede anything which might
hinder their military power. In
Korea we are at last seeing the
ugly bared fangs of aggressive,
militant international Commu
nism bent on world domination.
The time has arrived when it is
the duty of the oppressed and
under-fed peoples of Asia and the
rest of the world to unite in de
manding that this wholly alien
East-West blood bath in Korea be
brought to an immediate conclu
sion, and that the Korean people
be rehabilitated so that they may
take their place among us as a
truly UNITED NATION.

Ever complain about the old structures where
classes are still being held, at apparent peril to
life and limb? And none of us like the way the
quadrangle looks, with the temporary buildings
and a battered student building standing in the
middle of it. The need for new and larger build
ings bat been obvious to us alL
It seems that since we have all taken It upon
ourtelvei to come to college, that the college could
at least welcome us with new and permanent
buildings and spacious facilities.
The fact that our school administrators are set
tled in a building that is creaking to its founda
tion is in itself indicative of the facilities of our
school. The whole problem seems to stem from
one cause: not enough money.
When parents send their children to college,
their usual reason is to further the education of
their offspring. They pay the bills and expect a
reasonable return from their investment. But
they do iA do enough!
The people f toe slate not seem to realise
that, for s small additional Investment, their re
turns could be increased Buuoy times.
It is true that earnings are higher now than at
ny time in the past in Nebraska. So are taxes.
But the future of the country lies, as has been
said times without number, with the youth of the
country. It is the duty of the older generation
to prepare the youth in the best way possible for
their tour of duty.
College "kids' are more mature now than ever
before. Perhaps as a reflection of the times, they
more willingly accept the responsibilities that are
thrown to them. But they, must be more ade
quately prepared to discharge these duties.
The University steeds more money. There are
tnaay problems t be Investigated, questions
be answered, swlvtions te be found. For this work,
the Cnrrersity seeds Increased facilities, mere
equipment, new buildings.
There is nly one place from which the money
can come. Taxes are already high enough, but
there should be increased appropriations for edu
cational purposes la general and for the Uni
versity in particular.
The waste of the mature, experienced minds of
the faculty and of the eager. Inquisitive minds
of the student body should prey upon the people
just as the waste of their other natural resources
irritates them. Maybe this would be one way to
keep the young people in the state.
