THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Wednesday, April 11, 195!
Americans, who make much of advertising in
everyday life, are among the poorest salesmen
when it comes towelling their way of life and
their principles to the world at large.
Americans believe in their way of life, or at
least most Americans do. They think, .therefore,
that all other peoples of the world should see the
advantages of the American system. This, people
in other nations do not always do.
For instance, the hungry people of India are
not going to believe in the glories of democracy
while they are hungry. Somehow, they are going
to think the system most glorious which can aid
them materially. Communist China and commu
nist Russia have both shipped wheat to aid the
starving millions of India. They did not give it
outright, but traded it for Indian products. This
leaves some room for Indians to feel that they
are not being given a "dole."
But what has the United States done in this
line. Under the Marshall Plan and the "point
Four" program, they have given aid to foreign
nations. And, as they gave aid, the swirling
tides of communism retreated somewhat
Opponents have charged that the United States
is becoming a worl-wide Santa Claus. Certainly,
when the need for this aid decreased, we should
not continue to waste our money.
' But, like the congressmen who go home for
re-election, we should make sure that our fences
It is reported that one member of the congres
sional fraternity went home to campaign for re
election and talked with an old farmer-constituent
Are you going to vote for me?" he asked.
"Nope," said the farmer.
"But didn't I get the irrigation project for
you?" the congressman asked. "And didn't I
help you when you were down and out during
- "Yep," said the farmer.
"Then why won't you vote for me?" the con
"You ain't done nothing for me lately," replied
We should be careful that our advertising cam
paign does not cease. A bill to provide surplus
U.S. grain for the people of India remains buried
In a congressional committee. Other matters are
more important, although the grain is going to
waste at the same time. We are selling our
selves to the people of the world that way.
. An old, hackneyed expression says, "actions
speak louder than words." The people of the
world need something besides words to assure
This is not however, to suggest that the United
States should silence its "Voice of America"
In these broadcasts, the American government
attempts to tell the truth. Sometimes, these
broadcasts have a boomerang effect People who
are ragged and hungry 'sometimes resent being
told about the sirloin steaks and Cadillacs in
The Russian government is. limited by no such
compulsion to tell the truth in its propaganda
broadcasts. There is no doubt that many of the
Iron Curtain residents and some beyond its metal
hem actually believe the United States is an im
perialistic war-mongering country. And they back
up their words with action. Under a dictatorship
Democratic processes are slower, but can be
equally effective, if once brought into play. We
are not using them as we could be.
The Friendship Train sent to France was one
of the finest things which has been done. The
French showed their gratitude by sending a return
We are inclined to think of the rest . of the
world as a bunch of stupid foreigners who are
too dumb to see that our way is the best way.
We have been wrong in the past and probably
will be again. We should co-operate with them
and compromise if need be. However, we should
never sacrifice our principles in so doing.
At the same time that the United States is
trying to build up the confidence of the other
nations of the world in the fight against com
munism, the Senate passes a resolution which
would limit the power of the president to send
General Eisenhower made a trip around the
world to see what could be done to strengthen
the bond joining the non-communist nations of
the world. And what does congress do? They
agree that we must not send too many troops
overseas. They rely on a "Fortress America."
"Fortress America" is an illusion. It is an
illusion because of the invention of the air
plane. It is particularly an illusion because the
United States is only a few hours flying distance
from the Soviet Union, which, lest we forget,
possesses the atomic bomb.
Benjamin Franklin once said "We must all
hang together or most assuredly we shall all
hang separately." It was the dissension and iso
lationism of the 1920-33 period which led to the
rise of Hitler and the Second World War. Will
also be the dissension among the United Nations
which allows Russia to become all powerful and
cause the Third World War?
The United Nations cannot agree today upon
what shall be done. And the United States seems
to be taking a lone path in many matters. They
have their "Fortress America." Or do they?
America will win the struggle with commu
nism because of the tremendous power of a free
people, once that power is unleashed. But it
could cost a lot of lives in the meantime. t.r.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week
starting at 4:30 p.m.
Those who attended the

thought that more people
should be "clued in" about the
various phases of Ag Union ac

that more students who use

Last Wednesday the Ag Builders revealed their
new tours bulletin to quite a crowd of people
over in the Ag Union. Seems to me this is some
thing that Ag College has been needing for some
time and it looks very adequate.

Farmer's Fair plans are shaping up right along
and with the events scheduled now, this should
be the biggest Fair in many a year. Fitting in
with College Days the Ag College schedule will
add its bit to the week-end festivities with an
open house, a barbeque, a square dance, the rodeo
and the cotton and denim dance theme.

After the FFA boys had left the Ag campus
last week-end they really left their marks. The

busy that Jean Vierk (TNC) and Marlene An

Editor Proves Cheating Is Easy;
Uses Crib With Seven Proctors
By Connie Gordon
Can students cheat in final exams and
-ret away with it? Some say yes; some say
"no"; and some just don't say. The dean
of students at Springfield college said that
students can cheat in final exams and get
away with it royally.
To prove his'point conclusively, once and
for all, the editor of the Springfield's stu
dent newspaper, under the dean's author
ization took a final exam in a course in
which he wasn't enrolled, using crib notes.
aS he passed with flying colors, even
though there were seven proctors in the
At Michigan State College, an English
professor at that college was having
quite a little bit of trouble keeping his
class's attention. To add to his difficulties,
he kept confusing the illustrious Thomas
Jefferson with the illustrious Benjamin
Franklin. After confusing the names for
the umpteenth time, he announced to his
class, "I think I need some blood in my
head." So, he proceeded to lay his glasses
on his desk, and he then executed a per
