THE DA1Y NEBRASKAN
Friday, May 4, 1951'
What is behind the story of seven students being
taken into custody Wednesday night and why is it
shrouded with doubt and uncertainty. The situa
tioa is unfortunate ana received by all with dis
may but the students on this campus have a right
to know the true tacts.
Are these men, or some of
the notorious "paint and brush" group called d d Uh
Theta Nu Epsilon? Certainly all
stantial as it is, points to that supposition.
Sorority girls saw a group of men gathered in
front of their house Wednesday and the next
morning discovered a freshly painted TNE sign on
the exact spot Sgt John Furrow of the University
police said there was paint on the clothes of the
seven. With evidence such as this, is it preposter
ous to asssume that the men in question were en
gaged in the "sub-rosa" activities of TNE.
Is it any wonder this so-called "subversive" or
ganization is blamed for many unfortunate hap
penings on campus.?
Although we have no positive evidence the men
Dogs are having their days these days. First the
University had a "Handsomest Dog on Campus"
contest and now the University of Syracuse had a
BAOC contest which is worth mentioning. By the
way, BAOC means Big Animals on Campus."
This event was judged by three ugly men con
testants on campus and two veterinarians from a
kennel in Syracuse.
Prizes were awarded for the best all-around
dag, the ugliest dog, the best dressed pet and the
most unusual pet "The prizes included a loving
cup, dog food, and a plaid vest (for the dog, I pre
sume). The Idaho Argonaut of the University of Idaho,
made a rather surprising statement recently. It
stated that "students are being cheated in cer
tain courses and schools.
An example of this cheating was illustrated by
what one instructor told a student
" 'Well, since you can't drop the course (he
had flunked the first course), your only alternitive
is to take it' The student asked what possibility
there was of passing the course, and the professor
replied that as far as he was concerned, he couldn't
do better than an F.
Upon advice of his dean, the student continued
in the course, but didn't attend classes.
"... .A gripe about why students cheat? Yes.
They don't cheat to hurt each other's grades. They

Progress vs. Strife
To the Editor:
In an editorial in The Daily
Nebraskan Tuesday, May 1, the
writer made these statements:
"Progress is almost always the
result of strife ... A nation with
out strife, a world without con
flict would be a pretty poor place
to live." Then the writer re
deemed himself somewhat by
saying, "... good honest com
petition isg something to be con
sidered." What kind of strife, what kind
of conflict is this which is so in
dispensable to mankind? That

are a few scientific developments
