THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Things Could Be Worse
The Daily Nebraskan receives issues ot col
lege newspaper from universities all over the coun
try, from California to Connecticut. I have noticed,
at onetime or other in nearly all of these, edi
torials decrying the lack of school spirit at ath
letic events. Most of them ran something like this:
"Cheering at the football same Saturday
showed a terrific lack of spirits. On the other
hand, our opponents, few in number though they
were, far out-cheered us. This is disgraceful.
Why should a large student body like ours be
unable to reaaly support the team? Next Sat
urday, let's go out and really show them we're
behind them. Rah. Rah. Rah."
In years past, TheDaily Nebraskan has run
editorials something like this. Through experience
we have learned that such editorials aren't worth
the paper they are written on. I seriously doubt
that one additional person decides to cheer as a
result All the pious editorials in the world will
not create school spirit.
A lack of spirit at football games is not a
problem peculiar to Nebraska. It seems to be
wide-srread. It will not be settled by righteous
assertions that "we must cheer louder."
Perhaps World war II helped to break down
through the years. Many of those traditions are
the series of traditions which had grown up
gone forever, but some perhaps are not irretrievable.
Last Spring, a
worked on a plan to revive school spirit The
committee sought some solution to the indif
University life. In the past, school and class
dances, with few exceptions have failed mis
erably. This committee came up with a report which
was again presented to the Student Council
Wednesday. The plan was referred back to com
mittees for action. The plan had some parts which
might be worth consideration.
The plan would provide for class officers
elected by all four classes, not merely juniors and
seniors. In addition it would provide a class coun
cil of some six members to aid the officers in mak
ing plans for class events. It is designed to give the
students a bigger part in their own affairs, and
at the same time a feeling of "belonging." It would
provide for more activities within each indi
Such a plan would require several years
before it could really become effective, if then.
It might aid in dispelling some of the apathy
that is present Its aim is to take the high
school student as he enters the University and
make him school-conscious. After a student
has gone to University for two years, he is be
yond the point of return to high school enthus
iasm. Such enthusiasm makes for a better school.
Maybe this plan is not the answer. But at
least it deserves careful consideration.
School spirit could be worse. But it could be
a lot better.
Disgraceful . . .
Dear Mr. Sinclair,
I actually happened to get a
copy of the "Rag" the day that
your letter was printed. In fact,
I read your letter again and again.
Frankly, I was impressed only
with your stupidity. What you
need is not a fraternity, but an
over-grown Boy Scout Club.
It is probably true that you did
receive 69 copies of the "Rag."
As a word of suggestion, I would
say, "keep your sticky mitts off
of those other "Rags" so that the
other two-thirds of the University
will have a chance to read the
You are, it is plain to see, one
who is a disgrace to the whole
fraternity system, which I think
as a whole is good. You are one
of the type who always manages
to give college boys a strike
against them. It is your attitude
of "don't give a damn about any
one except yourseii" wnicn is
typical of your classification of
"Harry High School Collegeism."
In other words, John, you are
an unmitigated sophist.
Custer's Last Stand
With the faculty senate's approval of the new
Student Council constitution, the first official ac
tion of the year began. Already two suggestions
for revision have been offered by the senate.
One would give the College of Pharmacy and
the College of Dentistry each a representative ra
ther than one to represent both. The other sug
gestion would require faculty senate and Board
of Regents approval on all revisions and amend
ments. In wanting faculty senate and Board of Re
gents approval on any changes, the faculty is
merely exercising its right of administrative
authority. The suggestion that Dentistry and
Pharmacy colleges receive two individual repre
sentatives does not have as much foundation.
One of the major objections students had last
year to the new constitution was representation.
At the . record vote on the measure, nearly 40 per
cent of the University population turned out This
was more than had been cast in any other stu
dent elections. A breakdown of votes showed that
1,455 favored the constitution and 1,130 opposed
it It was approved by a margin of 326 votes.
Preceding the election, an open forum was
held at which any student or faculty member
could express views. Members of the faction r
All University Party made a last minute attempt
to defeat the measure. Many grievances were
brought Into the open. However, we note that
no faculty member or representative from the
College of Pharmacy or College of Dentistry
felt necessity of attending the meeting to discuss
their gripes. In a sense these two colleges are
acting like opponents of the constitution last
spring. Instead of opposing representatino when
it was formulated, they wait until new to regis
ter disapproval. The faction, last spring, instead
of beginning opposition when the proposal was
drafted, waited until it was too late, and conse
quently lost the election.

In an effort to cash in on the
sports public's insatiable taste
for college football, Hollywood
once or twice a year comes up
with a fatuous motion picture

Big Time U.
Sidney Buchman's new produc
tion for Columbia Pictures, "Sat
urday's Hero" is now showing at
the Varsity theater. Starring John
Derek and Donna Reed, "Satur
day's Hero" is the story behind
college football, a glamor-stripping
lowdown of the body-buying
system cf bigtime schools and
their "kept men" of the gridiron.
Derek plays a star high school
athlete who wishes to climb
above his family's station in
life and jumps at the chance
to play football for an ivy-covered
He quickly discovers that he is
only a "Saturday's hero," cheered
wildly one afternoon a week be
cause of his .spectacular football
playing, but otherwise shunned
by the fraternity boys. As a
football-playing commodity, he
isn't expected to try too hard for
the education he so desperately
He also discovers that he is be
ing sponsored as an All-American
player by a wealthy and over
bearing alumnus, who is further
ing his own political ambitions
by building up his alma mater as
a great football college. Also
complicating Derek's life is a
love affair. Derek and Donna
Reed, niece of the alumnus, fall
in love and plan to marry.
Disillusionment sets in when
a rival player injures Steve's
shoulder and later tells him he
rot a $150 bonus for doing it.
The injury becomes permanent
and Steve leaves school to
work in the mill in the shadow
of which he grew up. The dis

Happy entertainment for every
body is in MGM's star song-and-laugh-loaded
musical, "Texas Carnival," which
is at the Stuart theater.
Esther Williams shows off that
famous aqua-figure, this time as
a carnival trouper. Her Job is
to sit in a bathing suit on a
break-away seat constructed over
a tank of water. Patrons pay to
throw balls at a target and if it is
hit, Esther gets a dunking.
The spieler for this act is Red
Skelton, who gets himself and the
star performer into trouble.
For songs there is Howard
Keel as a warbling cowhand.
For dancing there is fast-strip-pnig
Ann Miller, with Paula
Raymond and Keenan Wynn
also on hand in a story which
winds up with Skelton winning
a chuck wagon race in which
he does everything but drive

Let's examine Pharmacy and Dentistry col
leges claim. College representation is based on
granted representatives on that basis. Pharmacy
has 137 students and Dentistry, 121, or a total
of 258 students. If each group were allowed
one delegate, other college delegates would have
to be increased as follows ( to maintain a fair
ratio): Law college with 189 students, two; En
gineering and Achitectural college with 770 stu
dents, at least five; Business Administration col
lege with 919 students, at least six, almost seven;
Ag college with 896 students, at least six; Teach
ers college with 1332 enrolled, at least nine;
and Arts and Sciences college with enrollment of
1067, about eight That would total 38 or 39
eats on the Council without any other repre
sentatives. We seriously dobut how efficient this
