THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Unpinned Students Polled
By Nebraskan Reporter
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1951
By AMY PALMER
The Daily Nebraskan has just
"men us iirsi pon or the year
and received some astounding
answers. Of course an astounding
question was asked.
The question for which we
were so diligently seeking an an
swer Was: If VOU Were ninnorf
and then got un-pinned, would
you want that information to be
in The Daily Nebraskan?
It was very noticeable that all
the male of the species questioned
m no in rawer definite terms.
One handsome lad answered very
stiffly, "I dont think it would be
Another quipped, "I don't
think there's any danger of my
setting un-plnned"; then for
effect, he flashed his wedding
Another pessimistic fellow
said, "it would be impossible
for me to get pinned in the
first place, but if I did I would
n't want anyone to know I
couldn't hold her."
Then there was the boy who
was very cagey about the whole
thing who started in, "Well, it
wuuia aepena upon the circum
stances, etc." That went on for
several minutes, but no definite
answer was ever given. The bash

Only a few men were definitely
in favor of it, and others said
wey didn't care either way.
Among the fairer sex, the
answers were predominately
yes. They sem to think that
such an announcement would
enable them to "get back into
On the other side of the fence
were the girls who said "News
like that gets around soon
enough anyway. If anybody
wants to know, they can find
out" They didn't mention how.
One young woman said she
would want the news in The
Daily Nebraskan but she knew
irom experience that first
everyone would want to

Another sweet vouns thine took
an airy view of the whole situ
ation. "I don't see what difference
it makes. Pins are sort of like
going steady, and everybody
knows about it, I don't care."
Considering all the men who
answered the question with a
definite no, it might be safe to
drag out the psych books and
make an explanation. One
might think that it is the male
ego that makes them answer
like they do. They just hate to
admit that they can't hold their
girl. And they know they're in
dependent enough not to have
to worry about dating other
On the cirls side, the uhnle
situation is different. They take
a mucn more philosophic view of
the situation and decide that
once it's over and done with, let
people know and get back into
Of course this is just the find
ing of a very small poll. If you
differ too much with the opin
ions given here, won't you let

The Student Council has
asked that students stay out

The Council plans to check
the number of faculty places
being used during the rush
periods of each day. If the
spaces are not full, faculty lots
will be made smaller.

I wish I could have eiven you this vacation in
formation last spring before you all went on your
'glorious summer vacations; now, this news is not
news anymore because it's old; nevertheless, I hope
you will enjoy it.
It's pilfered from the Iowa State Daily column,
"Ballyrot", by Plato.
He wrote, and I quote:
"Manv Iowa State students are now sriendinir
their vacations at clubs and resorts suggested by
the college. We thought we might mention a few:
The geology students are now spending eight
weeks in Colorado taking a 6-month rock course
formerly offered at Alcatraz. They are staying
at a picturesque hotel and auto graveyard located
far back in Damnation Gulch. Student rooms in
the resort have hot and cold running water, de
pending on the temperature of the rain. The
quaint outdoor plumbing is discreetly located
uphill from the drinking-water supply."
"The NROTC students are now on their sum
mer cruise. They will learn to operate secret
weapons, such as the Mechanical Boat-sinker
J67k, and the folding' deck chair.
The Mechanical Boat-sinker J67k is a secret
weapon resembling an ordinary brace and bit. The
loperator swims beneath the enemy ship and uses
the J67k to drill a hole in the bottom. He then rapid
ly swims away so that the ship won't sink on top
"Other students are vacationing in the Citv nf
Frolic, the City of Extravagant Night Life, the
city of Ames.
Ames is one of the obstacles they dclhrht in
threading Highway 30 through. They don't want
the tourists to miss anything, for example, stu
dents. Also, the continual muffled thunder of
trucks past th campus keeps the place looking
alive. That's why students seldom die of bore
dom; they get run over."
Want some tips on studying? Even if you don't
here they are! '
Professor James D. Weinland in a booklet entitled
"How to Study" stated that students should ar
range their study schedule by the speed with
which they forget if they wish to get the "most
out of studying".
He stated that "Different kinds of mental work
require different applications of time. You will
memorize much more by working ten minutes
each day for a week than by . working seventy
minutes at one spell."
He added that an important factor in concentra
tion is interest in the subject. "To become interested
in your studies," he says, "find their connection
to yourself and to your future. You must see how
your work now will be a part of you and your
equipment ten years hence."
I still can't see where in my future biology
equipment will do me any good!
