Forecast of Army Life
Dominates Collegiate Talk
By Jerry Bailey
We were half way through the third round
the other night, when the grad student across
"-the table leaned forward to ask:
"Where do you stand with Uncle Sam?"
"Gonna be drafted this summer," I returned.
The guys in the booth expressed sympathy in
various ways. The talk turned to ghoulish pre
dictions of what army life would be like. The
grad student became the center of attention, for
he was a veteran and therefore an expert For
some time, he spun tales of the European war
and the Army of Occupation.
"You make army life in Germany sound pretty
good,"' he was told.
The grad student swore that he spoke truth.
"It was sure soft, he emphasized. "When the
guys over there were told, because of the emer
gency, they would have to stay for six-more
months . . . they cheered!"
Some one else wanted to know about the
. Talk turned to the possibilities of who would
win a race to the English Channel, two retreat
ing American divisions with dependents, or the
invading Russian armies?
"We had orders where to assemble," quoth
the grad student "Our wives and children knew
just where to go in order to get out"
"Where was that?" I wanted to know.
The grad student deliberated a while before
answering, "I don't believe Fll answer that"
I nodded my respect for a genuine military
"But . . ." continued the vet, "we didn't expect
to get to the channel. The German communists
would have held us till the Russians got there."
"You mean the Germans will be blowing up
bridges to slow the American retreat down?"
Someone else put in, "If they don"t blow them
the Americans will!"
There was silence for awhile, amid the ciga
rette smoke and brew-fumes.
"I hope the army ships me to Europe," I said.
"I always did want to visit Germany."
"You'll enjoy it!" predicted the man who had
"I thought the days when you could get a Frau
lein for a chocolate bar were past."
"They are- The price has gone up. Now they
cost eight chocolate- bars." - . r -
"Any good advice?" I wanted to know.
"Well ... if you see one, just walk up and ask.
If she's a nice type she'll just walk away with
out saying anything. If not . . ."
The conversation lapsed when the waitress ap
peared to take another order. From the bar,
came voices raised in argument, discussing the
merits and virtues ol Truinan or MacArthur.
Somehow no one got around to mentioning
another general, who is intent upon forming an
army wherein Americans and Germans, among
others, might stand as buddies.

To the Editor:
I congratulate you and your
staff on the advances in quality
and service of this year's Daily
Nebraskan. However, I would
like to offer the suggestions that
the publication be made avail
able to more of -the student body.
The little boxes could have at
least a few papers put into them
in . all buildings of the campus
and could be delivered before the
11 o'clock class. Also, perhaps no
tifications of official school
events, like convocations, be
made for at least two days be
fore the occasion. I have read
The Daily Nebraskan for over
four years, when I could find one,
and these two are the most seri
ous, criticisms I find in it May I
suggest a bulletin " box on the
front page with official notices in
it, not social ones.
