Where Did The Flags Go?
There's one way which is almost a sure-bet to
rouse anger among college students. That is to
call them childish. When this label is tossed at
University students they generally resent and re
fute it' Most times they are justified. Right now,
some University students more than deserve the

school habit of picking up souvenirs wherever
they go when they enroll in college. But some

During the weekend of the Penn State football
game, Band Day, a dozen city flags were stolen
from downtown Lincoln, Police found one flag
in possession of a University student. All flags
were taken from O street except one taken from
N street . .
If University students are responsible for
theft of all flags, as. evidence seems to point,
the action certainly is a biack mark on our in
tegrity and maturity. A younger person could
be taken by the hand and told what is right
and wrong but students 18 years and older
ought to have more sense of responsibility than
exercised in this Instance. There is no doubt
that University students promote business, cul
tural and Intellectual Interests of Lincoln, but
flag stealing almost offsets any good the Uni-
verslty as a whole or individuals may accom
plish. Whether, justly or not, such action reflects
poorly on the entire student body.

information as to where they could be obtained

If either alternative were employed by those
who wanted the Lincoln flags, a great deal of
criticism of University students would ' be
An editorial in the Kansas State Collegian re
cently pointed out: "We're all kids. The Student
Council members are all kids."' The Collegian edi
tors are kids. (A feud with KU) has just as much
place in our college lives as the ivy or the text
books or history prof's jokes. . . . We'll grow up,
but in our way, in our own time."
The author has a good point, but while we're
growing up "in our own way," we'd better dis
card some of our completely childish habits, or
we'll be paving our own road toward disrespect
from Lincoln residents and other Nebraskans.
Our actions are primary basis for the opinion
that will be held for us. We can only hope and
strive for an opinion that is worthy of respect

Defends AUF . . .
Dear Miss Jeffry:
In regard to your letter of Oct,
29, 1951, I would like to disagree
with you. The main purpose of
AUF is to combine all campus
arives into one and protect stu
dents from execessive soliciting
throughout the year.
As to tne sorority solicitations.
I was an AUF representative who
solicited. It was not compulsory
tnat eacn girl give two dollars.
She gave whatever she felt she
could give. One of the. girls gave
twenty dollars which was re.
ceived in payment for donating
her blood. Another girl who works
gave five dollars. These are only
two examples: I am sure that
other AUF representatives could
cite more examples. On the other
hand, there were girls who felt
they could not afford to give
two aoiiars, tne matter was not
pressed any farther.
The point is a srlrl is not rich if
she belongs to a sorority and poor
if she is an independent. Durina
my freshman year I was an in
dependent, now thai, I belong to
a sorority, my attitude towards
AUF has not changed. My hat is
off to AUF and the tremendous
job it is doing.

Brotherhood By Pain?
At the risk of getting into a
muddle of contention, I feel that
I must support the statement in
the "Hell or Help" article pub
lished in The Dailv Nebraskan
First of all and most of all I
must support the -satiric statement
that "within fraternities onlv
through pain can a young man
come to feel the kinship of broth
erhood represented through the
fraternities." If pain is the only
way tnat the student members
can feel the kinship of brother
hood represented through the fra
ternities, then I can begin to un
derstand somewhat better the
present situation and stand of the
fraternities on the University of!
For I am certain that by this
way of thinking-, the Nebraska
fraternity men are letting them
selves be sold down the river by
a Godless nonsensicalism which
puts all of living on a basis of
material things and leaves out
the entire basis of vital, vibrant
living. To me this vital way of
living means to act according to
the Christian pattern of life
which can be thought of as rec
ognizing the love of God for us
by the way that we live our
lives in relation to those around
us who are suffering and dying
physically and spiritually.
By studiously and stupidly ig
noring tne person ol God as creator
of the universe and all that is in it,
many students (also professors)
are living a superficial life in
which they attempt to create con
formity to group attitudes through
tne use of pain.
This pain method of getting
fraternity men to feel that only
those who are members of their
fraternity are their brothers is
the same method that the totali
tarian countries use, and they
obtain their reward. Isn't it
fairly obvious what the outcome
of this kind of brotherhood will
The only kind of brotherhood
which is true, everlasting and ac
tually "pays off" in the end is that
which takes into account the ac
tuality of God. Brothers then will
feel genuinely that they are broth
ers with all men and will show
it in their actions and in their joy
at being alive in God's world.
Ticket Collector . . .
I bought a car recently and
parked it on the campus for the
first time on a Monday. Being a
law-abiding student, I quizzed
around and finally found that
parking permits could be pur
chased at the Union.
I went to the Union about 4:30
Wednesday afternoon, and found
that permits were handed out only
Detween 3 and 4 p.m. on Tuesdays
So I had to wait until today
(Tuesday) to return and get my
permit. I came un the Student
Council room at 2:55 and waited
'til 4 with nary a soul appearing
to issue the permits.
I have a class from 2 'til 4:30
on Wednesdays and this means
that I must wait 'til next Tuesday
to try and get a sticker. Mean
while I am garnering a nice col
lection of parking tickets.
I aon t know who is responsible
for handing out these permits but
whoever you are. mav I resDect-

Ex-Officers Quizzed About Election;
President Says No Politics Involved
Politics is still the order of the day. Not to
be outdone by the writers of news stories and
editorials, your Candid Reporter was out at the
crack of dawn (well, not too many hours after
ward) gathering comments about the big contest
for class officers.
The question was "What is your general
opinion about the , coming election? What do
you think about it?"
Starting with the 'wheels', ex-class officers
that is, and working down to the poor little
peons who can't even vote, this was what hap
pened. The junior officers had this to say. Ex-presi
dent: "I'm sure there is no politicking involved in
this elec tion."
Ex-vice-president: "There is no present need
for class officers. Also, I hear it on good authority
that if the Engineers get in, the first plank of
their platform is to do away with the rest of the
Of a more serious nature were the comments
of the ex-treasurer and secretary. "The class
officers of last year attempted to put the class
council on a sound basis and establish definite
projects. They can serve a useful purpose in
the University by promoting class spirit and by
carrying on functions from year to year."
"The election is a farce. Whoever hears of the
officers after they're elected, anyway?"
A sophomore had a very blunt opinion of the
doings of the upperclassmen. She said, Tt's for
the birds." .
A junior and alleged member of the faction
announced simply, "I have no words for the
A group of juniors laughingly answered the
question, but just how they meant them Is in
doubt. Amid much laughter these comments
"I'm sure it will be a very democratic elec
tion. "I vote for the nickel beer ticket."
"We haven't gotten our orders yet."
Surprisingly enough, some people weren't quite
sure just what election the CR was asking about.
"Election, what election? I'm glad Churchill
