THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Just Postpone It.. .
Empty class seats greet professors. Convertible
tops go down. Men perch on steps of their houses.
Coeds and their dates stroll hand in hand. Crowds
head for picnics.
Spring arrives at Nebraska.
There's not much new this year along the "don't
skip classes just because its spring" line. It's the
same old story. The only new angle is the news
paper staff which makes its first attempt to
pound the idiom into students heads. With
this firmly engraved in our minds, we don't ex
pect to accomplish any mountain moving results,
with our words. Nor, on the other hand, do
we feel they will pass entirely unnoticed.
This year, however, the gaiety of spring and
the carefree attitude which it usually brings is
somewhat subdued. Maybe it's the familiar "38th
parallel" or "Fifth and Eighth Armies" we read
In the midst of the controversy about the col
lege draft deferment and its relative justice or
injustice, there seems to be one point that is
constantly referred to as the crux around which
the argument revolves.
Can everyone that wants to and deserves to
nd is capable of doing the work go to college?
The answer, of course, is that they cannot
We who attend the University do not realize,
revolving in our own little world, how few young
men and women actually attend and graduate
from college. It seems as though everyone we
know is going to college.
But this is not so. Think of that kid who sat
next to you in your high school chemistry or
math class and seemed to be so smart. Where
was he the last time you saw him?
He may have been a student at some college or
university. And then on (he other hand, he may
have been working in a factory or machine shop
r department store.
Although I dont have the figures at hand, I
would estimate that not more than ten per cent
of the college-aged youth of the nation is at the
present attending ai institution of higher learn

correct in electing her as the

you want to hear it. lipman has done a won

Following his graduation from

This theater resembles the St.

We don't have to remind males on campus that
being in the upper half of their classes will
lengthen the time between now and when they
will wear government issued togs. They realize
that only too well. We don't have to remind gals
that competition for grades is keener than ever
before. What sometimes does need undusting is
the platform that many instructors follow: class
attendance is imperative for good grades.
Spring has come to Nebraska. The tempting
"let's go drink beer" or "let's party" is hard to
bypass. So, rather than bypass, just postpone
until you get out of that three o'clock. j.k.
Well then, something needs to be done about
it. Obviously, one solution would be to have pub

BAND VOCAL This is really the "give-credit

Kenton and his crew for the great cutting of
the record -September Song." This is one of
the few times when Stan gives a vocal chore to
the band, but in this record the entire song is
a real "kill." Whether or not you are a Kenton

"September Song" as done by Stan Kenton and

JAZZ To those of you who go mad ever a
tenor-sax. you will to wild over Gene Amnion's
version of "I Can't Give You Anything But Love."
Amnion's sax solo with the quartet providing back

The show will do takeoffs on
many of the dancing styles of the
