THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
By BOB BANKS
He had his say, and I had mine.
In a nutshell that describes the case between Tom Carodlne
, and myself durlnr the past two days. His situation at the Univer
i sity did need clarification, and through his own cooperation, that
clarification was made available.
In writing my column Monday in which I said his admission
to the University was confusing, I stated the truth, and I have ample
proof lor the statements I made. However, that does not mean that
Tom's statements are not as true as mine. In fact, I am the very
first to accept the validity of his column Tuesday in which he very
ably presented his side of the case.
The confusion was on the part of persons other than Tom or
As far as I am concerned, The Daily Nebraskan and Tom
together have brought the situation (to the light, and that closes
The only other point that could bear further discussion is the
statement I made to the effect that he should not be given another
While reading an article in The
Daily Nebraskan, I was reminded
of how immature a college paper
can become. I am referring to an
article written about Thomas
Carodine by one Mr. Bob Banks.
I cannot conceive of a supposedly
mature college student writing an
article of that nature. Perhaps it
would be well to inform Mr.
Banks that an article written in
one of the local newspapers in
that manner would result in
law suit for slander being brought
against the paper. This informa
tion would be vital to him in case
he would make the mistake of at
tempting to embark upon a ca
reer in journalism.
Since Mr. Banks seems to ex
hibit a fervid zealousness for hv

I would oppose his being allowed to continue playing foot
ball and skipping classes in the manner he had previously prac
ticed. However, if he is sincere in his determination to come back
in 1952, crack the books and attend classes and I believe he is
sincere then I am all for him.
Two letters have appeared on today's sports page concerning
Monday's Benchwarmer. One by Charles Bell states that "an article
written in one of the local newspapers in that manner would result
in a law suit for slander being brought against the paper." Mr. Bell
is entitled to his own opinion about the column, but as long as I
wrote the truth which is the first defense against libel The Daily
Nebraskan is safe.
Mr. Bell further seems to believe I had no objective In try
ing to find out the true situation. As I have previously said, the
situation needed to be clarified for the sake of all concerned. That
was my objective, and I certainly consider it a worthwhile one.
I would have done the same in any other situation, and I hope I
always will, despite Mr. Bell's conviction that I am immature and
anxious to investigate people.
In the other letter, Edward Thomas also writes that he dis
agrees with my assertion that Carodine should not be allowed an
other chance. Since I have fully qualified my point, there is no
need for further discussion.
Unless something more comes up, the Tom Carodine story is
closed until 1952. In the meantime, to you, Tom, your wife and
Thomas Jr., I wish all, the luck in the worldi

I do not agree with you when

I admit that from all appear
