THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
The Dead Mouse
The latest chapter in the series of proposals and
counter-proposals between Russia and the United
States-was written Thursday when Soviet Foreign
Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky rejected the new
allied rearmament He remarked that Truman and
Acheson had given birth to "a mouse a dead
mouse" when they proposed the new rearmament
plan. The whole exchange had a very familiar

changes which have been occurring with semi-
regularity for the past six years.
A world weary of war heard Vishinsky re
iterate the rehashed and rerehashed assertion
that-the United States started the Korean war
and Is even now planning a third world conflict
Some of his other demands were that the U.N.
declare the North Atlantic pact illegal, that a
fivcpower peace pact be concluded, that im
mediate peace be made In Korea with all foreign
troops out of the country in three months and
that a world conference of nations discuss re

were called upon to support this stand.
not new or startling; it was merely a reiteration during game broadcast Sunday
of a reasonable proposal which had been presented
many times before.
On its face, Vishinsky's proposal for destruc
tion of all atomic weapons, prohibition of manu
facture of more atomic bombs and use of atomic
energy for civilian benefits is reasonable enough.
But the trouble would come in the application
of the atomic de-emphasis. As in the past
Russia would probably object to having her own
store of weapons inspected. To allow inspection
within Russia would mean lowering the Iron
Curtain. To lower the Iron Curtain might mean
the end 'of the communist dictatorship.
Perhaps it was a little too much to expect a Such is the state of affairs at the present time.

Tnrner asked the mass meeting how ISA
members felt about their faltering organization.
The answers were serious and thoughtful but
not too constructive. Many suggestions were made
ms to what the group could sponsor to make the
independent population of the campus sit up and
take notice. Someone said that a book pool should
be started. A laundry pool whereby members
could present their ISA cards to local laundries
and receive discounts was suggested. Another
member thought that ISA should sponsor regular
panels featuring prominent campus personalities
discussing current problems. Many suggestions
of this type were made, but it would take a
evening in the form of a sock dance. Every penny

Dear Editor column are those of

Because of ibe many ''rumors"
nd complaint in regard to toe
awards for the Homecoming bouse
decorations, I feel that complete
clarification til th judging is
necessary. In order Chat all the
groups that participated will not
bave any hard feelings toward the
judges, the Innocents Society, or
toward the winners.
It .eems that aeveral til the
bouses that participated in the
bouse deoor aliens feel, or have
beard, that they were disqualified
from the judging because their
displays were "in bad tarte." This
is false completely nd un
equivocally jtalse, Ho bouse was
disqualified from the Judging for
this reason ioim bouse was dis
qualified becaust til the expense
taut snd that did nut make any
difference to the Judging or plac
ing til the winners or that bouse).
In y ester oar's Zaly Kebras
jkan an article appeared ttrglnr
clarifk-atios f ibe matter and
offered everaJ retiitta. One
44 these cntgestMnas was that
the 1 bad taste" f the "cug
jests" be screened whea
the entries are evhssitted. This
was (done. A conamtttee f
three students went ever eatb
and every one of them. TVs
bouses were contacted and they
were told that their proposed i
displays were "suggestive." De i
house changed their Idea enouira
to get buy the ether went rigiit
ahead and nsed their original
idea. So Miss Benjamin's idea
in The Daily Nebraskan has al
ready been carried out in the
opinion of three students. All
the other bouses were suppos
edly accepted both from the
point of "no duplication" and
The Innocents Society this year
made a sincere effort to do some
thing about the judging of the
displays in order that some stan
dardization could be started. In
the past years the judging was
somewhat of a farce in many
repjects. The judges would go
around to ail the houses and then
just pick three in each division
that they lilted. This year judg
iing form was devised that we fell
jput the judging on a fair basis.
It went something like this: Ali
the displays were rated on four
points: construction appearance,
relationship t Homecoming
theme, and originality. Th,e four
categories were weighted 2-2-2-4
(total 10), The judges were in
structed iv give each bouse a grade
running between 19 higb) and I
low. This made it possible to
multiply the grade toy the factor
and arrive at a score running
somewhere between 30 and 300, i
When the three judges forms
were added together it would gi ve
a score somewhere below 200 (the
possible). The winners received
270 (mens) and 266 (womens).,
We felt that this was a huge suc
cess in spite of the comment
caused by the losers.
In selecting the Judges we
, made an earnest effort to pick
people that we felt represented
: various branches of the Univ
ersity. I think they did an ad
mirable Job. Xo one can ap
preciate the judging until they
try to de ft, It is an extremely
difficult Job t say the least,
! Along this line each judge
l makes bis own decisions and
! grades them accordingly if a
certain judge felt that a certain
display was in poor taste then I
suppose be graded down a little.
I dur't know for sure, but after
all we selected three people we
think entirely competent, and
they judged the way we wauled
them to the way they saw
them, Naturally there will be
differences of pinion they ex
isted among the judges to a de
gree. In closing, I would like to say
that I hope that there will not be
any bard feelings among the or
ganizations, and I hope this letter
serves to clarify the matter. The
success of lioijaecoming depends
on all the bouses . entering the
competition. Whether they win or
lose they are all necessary. Here's
hoping for a bigger and better
Homecoming next year.
