Jefferson's Ideas ...
"The influence over government must be shared among all
the people. If every individual which composes their mass par
ticipates of the ultimate authority, the government will be safe,"
Thomas Jefferson. Every American who believes in democratic
government will readily recognize the wisdom of these words.
And the words are not just words that were once uttered and
then forgotten. The idea which they express has been adopted
and carried out in many ways since the establishment of our na
tion. One method of carrying out this idea found in Nebraska is
the program of Cornhusker Boys and Girls State. This program
annually gives Nebraska high school juniors a week's oppor
tunity to study and practice the functions of government. Through
this program these students learn how to work with each other
in handling the various duties of government and in solving the
various problems of government. Thus, both the technical details
of operation of a government and the spirit to co-operation neces
sary to make a democratic government a success are gained from
this program.
And what better method of teaching could have been adopted
than that of the age old method of learning by doing? The
knowledge gained through this program will help give these
students ah opportunity to become future leaders of our gov
ernments. And if they do not become leaders then certainly they
will be better prepared to cast an "intelligent" ballot.
Every citizen of our state and nation should thank those
persons who conceived the idea of this program. Thanks should
also be given to those who, by their tireless efforts, have made
this program a success. Few persons realize the numerous small
details and endless jobs that must be handled to make a program
such ai this a success.
But with persons ever willing to make opportunities such
as this available there should be no fear that "influence over
government" will not be "shared among all the people."
It's Your Rag . . .
This is the first issue of your summer Daily Nebraskan. Dur
ing the summer session, your RAG will be published once a
week, every Friday, for six weeks.
The Daily Nebraskan is a student operated newspaper, and
though we may strive for perfection, it is doubtful that perfec
tion will be obtained.
The "Letterip" column is the place for you to air your pet
peeves, gripes, praises, or whatever you have, but the letters must
be signed. Our columns are always open to any who wish to
Editorial columns are clearly defined as such, and such col
umns represent the opinions of the writer, and not necessarily
those of the rest of the staff, or of the school.
We hope that you will like the summer RAG, and we hope
that you will bring complaints that you may have to the RAG
office in the Student Union. This will help us to give you the type
of a newspaper you want.
Suffering Liberties . . .
There is more in a cold war than the danger of international
tension or an outbreak. Some of our liberties are suffering.
We in college have seen this happening for some time. The
New York Times recently printed a verification that it was hap
pening at many colleges in the nation.
We have suffered home front casualties already in the , con
flict with Russia. These home front casualties are freedom of
thought and freedom of speech. Although they may not be fa
talities, they are casualties which are serious.
The dread of being labeled a "Communist" has put a re
straint on class discussions and on lectures. Statements that are
ambiguous pose a threat to instructors. They may be accused of
teaching red or pink dostrines. We have all heard an instructor
say the same thing in two ways to make sure he is not misun
derstood. Is this a healthy situation?
Will it lead to Joe College discussing campus happenings only?
Will it lead to our instructors deleting any personal opinion?
If it does if is not a healthy situation.
We hope this is a temporary situation like the hatred of the
German people during the first world war. That hatred has died
and perhaps this will die too. But in the meantime, we will live
with hobbles on speech freedom.
When the Communists are either corralled or defeated, let's
hope that complete freedom returns to our country and our col
leges. Freedom of speech must remain on the casualty list, for the
minute it is transferred to the fatality list, the results will be
