Editorial Comment
Seeking a Permanent End . .
"Theta Nu Epsilon has agreed to dissolve it
self, now and for all time to come." This state
ment by Chancellor Gustavson issued after two
weeks of controversy concerning it is in essence
the good news we have been waiting for. But
the manner in which TNE will be dissolved
causes much speculation from the student body.
Why would an organization which has defied
the administration for many years suddenly de
cide to "dissolve itself?" The Chancellor said in
his statement, "I have taken it upon myself, after
extended conferences with alumni of the organi
zation and with its student members, to re-admit
the four students to University classes on a pro
bationary basis."
Dr. Gustavson went on to say he has in his
possession sworn statements from active members
and pledges from local alumni to substantiate the
decision to disband. Is this enough proof to as
sure the actual demise of TNE. Does the Chancel
lor have the complete list of members?
Without Usual Sadness . .
These and other questions are currently being
raised by interested students and these students
deserve answers. The statement that TNE has
agreed to dissolve itself is questioned by all. Can
you trust the members of TNE to "dissolve itself?"
The Daily Nebraskan believes, and feels the
student body concurs, that Chancellor Gustavson,
in his dealings with student and alumni members
of TNE, has been most sincere and forthright in
his desire to rid the campus, once and for all, of
this undesirable society. But we question the
advisability of placing trust in the men who be
long to TNE to cease their activities.
The Chancellor's statement is surely the most
concrete proof to be realized in many years to
assure that TNE is really on the way out. All
that is left to do now is wait and see what de
velops. We fervently hope whatever pressure the
Chancellor may bring to bear on TNE will be
enough to insure a permanent end to Theta Nu
Epsilon. j.w.
This is what is generally known as a swan
song. But this swan song is different from all
the rest different in the respect that it isn't sad.
Naturally, there is certain sense of sadness
connected with a staff publishing the last paper
of the year. For some it will be the final edition
of their collegiate careers. For others it is just
a beginning.
Despite all the pseudo-nostalgia, no staff can
wish for any more newsworthy stories to work
with than had this staff. Such stories as the first
annual College Days, the re-admittance to girls
in the cast of the Kosmet Klub spring show and
the presentation of a full-scale broadway musical.
Working under the disadvantage of publishing
a paper under cold-war conditions, the staff
handled other history shattering events. We re
joiced when "Moose" Cooper entered the charmed
circle of pole vaulters clearing fifteen feet. We
urged the Nebraska Legislature to give the Uni
versity a square shake on appropriations and were
pleased to announce the total amount allotted.
We witnessed the demise of a faltering or
ganization called ISA and encouraged a reorgani
zation of Independents. We applauded the Stu
dent Council on adopting a new plan for fresh
men orientation, student representative on facul
ty committees, progress on a teacher rating scale
and various other investigations.
To culminate this semester of outstanding
news events we watch dreams shattered and
dreams coming true at the 50th annual Ivy Day
ceremonies. But this was not the end of an
already fruitful year.
We then concerned ourselves with petitions to
make known the standards on which members of
Innocents are chosen, a vigorous campaign by
the Student Council to present a constitution for
the students' approval which ended in a new
era for student government and a defeat for the
The climax of the semester was the appre
hension of seven students suspected of being TNE
members, the suspension of four students and
the ultimate statement issued by Chancellor Gus
tavson stating that TNE would "dissolve itself."
For answers to the many question raised by
the above issues it will be necessary to wait until
next year. Many should be brought out into the
open now but time does not permit.
So the staff does not write "30" for this sem
ester in sadness but with a feeling of expectation
for the coming year. j.w.

Stolen Goods'
'Flash9 Ends Crime Career
With Tips for Final Exams
My crime career is ended! Yes, today is the
last day I will be able to "legally" steal material
from other schools; zut as I look at my career as
a columnist philosophically, I realize that all
things must end sometime, and now is a very
appropriate time.
Unless the rumors I've heard are false, or
profs have suddenly done away with end-of-the-term
tests, finals are just around the academic
corner. Most of the students around NU will
probably start studying conscientiously for the
first time this semester.
But, states Dr. Frederick N. Marty, in the
Syracuse Daily Orange, don't cram, sleep instead!
Dr. Marty stated that many students who
ram for finals and neglect their sleep will find
(hat they have rained nothlnr but a set of jumpy
nerves and a miserable bunch of grades. He also
pots "thumbs down" on any kind of stimulants,
from "cokes" and coffee to "Nodoz" or other
stimulants that contain benzedrine.
Dr. Marty listed a few "simple" rules of health
which, he stated would pay dividends in a "bet
ter functioning body and mind and contribute to
alertness at exam time. His simple rules are:
1. "Three well-balanced meals a day."
2. "Eight hours of uninterrupted sleep in a
well-ventilated room."
.By Connie Gordon.
3. "Daily period of relaxation."
Activities Gripe
To whom it may concerdi:
As chairman of the Btter Stu
dent Government Committee I
have officially expressed by con
dign relief and pleasure upon the
dissolution of the committee.
Unofficially, I should like to
remark that, after five, years
which should have convinced me,
my original opinion of student
activities has been justified and
confirmed n a m e 1 y that one
might abolish over 90 percent of
them without noticing their pass
ing. There are, of course, many hon
est, well-intentioned, and polite
people engaged in what we po
litely call "activities." Alas, my
recent enforced contact with the
members of our student elite
corps leads me to the sad con
clusion that they are, in the
mam, confused young people
whose chief characteristic is an
abysmal lack of a sense of direc
tion in short, a kind of semi-
hysteria over trivia induced by a I
distracting and unique sort of
! academic menopause. Few get
into this game "but doth suffer a
sea-change into something rich
and strange."
Most of the beneficial services
performed by these people could
be handled by our excellent and
very cooperative administrative
staff, but these embryo leaders
subjected me to an amazing va
riety of monstrous nonsense, the
purpose of which was to justify
their collective existence. The
arguments employed a series of
baffling analogies which in
cluded everything from seed sort
ing, to halfdigested political
axioms, to udder attachments. I
confess that I did not understand
these arguments.
I think that the only solution
for this ridiculous situation is
abolish all these societies; they
will then assume the status of
sub Tosa organizations, and will
therefore immediately gain the
recognition they desire. They will
maice tne members very happy,
and the real students, then as
now, will be blissfully unawarp of
their presence.

Cornshucks Hope
To the student body:
Last week, the committee on
Student Publications temporarily
suspended Corn Shucks because
of financial problems. Under the
circumstances, they had no choice
and I believe their action to be
a sound one.
Corn Shucks mav be back on
the campus next vear: it mav not.
Whether it is depends on the Com
mittee's final ruling. We of the
editorial staff sincerely hope the
action wm take in consideration
the editorial quality of the maga
zine. During the past two years,
the editorial staff of Corn Shucks
has been building and planning
for the future. We have always
felt that each issue showed an im
provement over the last and are
proud of the general appearance
of the magazine.
We firmly believe that the
University of Nebraska has a
place for a humor magazine. Nat
urally, we understand that the
Committee on Student Publica
tions cannot assume the responsi
bility for a constantly large
deficit. We hope the Committee on
Student Publications will forgive
one year's insolvency and will
also consider the magazine on its
editorial merits.
Personally, it has been a privil
ege to edit Corn Shucks and to
work with such a wonderfully co
