THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
The Price Of Fame
Six University women and six University men
will vie for the honor of Nebraska Sweetheart
and Prince Kosmet, respectively, Friday night at
the annual Kosmet Klub fall revue at the Coliseum.
Theoretically, these persons will vie for the
honors on the basis of popularity, poise, appear
ance, scholarship, activities and general campus
appeal. Persons attending the Friday evening fall
revue will presumably select their Sweetheart and various spirit-raising devices.
Prince Kosmet favorites on this theoretical basis.
This theory becomes practiceoccasionally.
The rest of the time, this theory remains just
that. In practice the honor comes to two people
on a different basis. This honor of hold
. ing the title of Nebraska Sweetheart and Prince
Kosmet an honor which Infers student respect
and admiration for its holders is often bestowed
on the basis of paid votes, votes cast n tickets -which
can be purchased in any number by any
student or by any person with at least 80 cents.
Kosmet Klub ticket chairmen said that approxi
mately 3,500 to 4,000 tickets have been printed for
the Revue. These tickets can be purchased from
any Kosmet Klub worker or member for 80 cents,
67 cents plus 13 cents tax. Tickets went on sale
These organizations, including Kosmet Klub,
are not entirely to blame for the campus-election
attitude which has resulted from paid votes. Most
of these money-making projects, using the incen
tive of competition between organized residence
houses, are partially necessary to finance the ac
tivities of these organizations.
However, this Question comes to mind: Can
these organizations rain campus respect and
worth on the basis of these services they per
form or do they need to add this occasionally
vicious competition among- organized houses,
both Greek and Independent, to gain their Uni

Many students have already
taken noe that Christmas vaca
tion Is scheduled from Dec. 22
to Jan. S. This means that a
number of unhappy individuals
(myself Included) who live
quite a ways' from Lincoln, will
have to leave home on or be
fore New Year's Day! Can you
think of a more disastrpus way
to ruin a good vacation?
A few years ago, two days were
added to the Christmas vacation
by, taking those two days away
from the extra days allotted for
studying for final exams. Couldn't
the same be done this year?
By giving us the rest of the
week after Jan. 3, most students
and teachers could stay home
three days longer than otherwise,
and the time could be made up
between the 12th and the 16th of
January which has been set aside
for study for finals. The people
who really need this study time
can spend the extra three days
of vacation studying.
I also would like to bring up
the thought of traffic conges
tion during and after New
Year's Day. Think how much
safer it will be for students to
travel back after the holiday
rush Is over.
I hope you will consider this
matter carefully. I have heard
many students voicing this same
opinion and I think you will find
that the majority would thank
you heartily for the extended vacation.

Moving On Safe Grounds
Winston Churchill's quick plunge into the not
too inviting waters of foreign relations might be
the initial cue about the war time leader's strat
egy in his return to power. Internally, Churchill
faces as any prime minister would face at pres
ent serious economic problems and because he
will find the most opposition on this level, his
initial moves are on a safe path.
A successful, spectacular handling of foreign
affairs might give him added prestige to deal
with home affairs and outweigh the problem
of the small majority his party holds. The small
majority does not give Conservatives the power
to introduce long term measures and to translate
them into legislation. There is the strong possi
bility that Churchill might appeal at that time
to the people for a mandate to pursue his policy.
Churchill's recent action in the Arab world, his
suggestion to the United States for more financial
aid to help the rearmament program and sagging
economy and the most recent act of arranging
a meeting with President Truman are part of his
foreign policy. He cautiously answered a labor
member's question about a future meeting with
Stalin by saying that possibility of a high; level
meeting should not be excluded if circumstances
are favorable. The wise Tory leader once again
refused to commit himself on grounds labor could
use for attack.
The first attempt by labor to unseat the new
government was defeated Monday by a vote of
320 to 281. The vote concerned the government's
denationalization of iron and steel program. The
76-year-old British leader can relax for a while.
Although the margin was slight, he did not
suffer censure and the action on steel was one
of his major campaign planks.
So the elderly statesman is proceeding cau
tiously testing the ground before making a wrong
step. When Churchill visits the United States to
confer with President Truman he should feel at
home. His mission to ask for more financial aid
might not be welcomed by the majority of Ameri
cans, but somehow the wartime leader commands
respect and confidence here. He might be able to
fulfill another portion of his foreign affairs
At any rate, the world watches Winnie just
as they watched him during the crisis of bitter
war years, wondering if he will once again lead
the proud English nation to stable grounds
internal as well as international.

A new Capitol release entitled "Battle of the
Bands" is composed of eight bands, each taking
its turn and playing a number it made famous.
Find yourself a rood solid chair, sit back and
hanf on, for here is a battle of the greatest
hands that have come upon the American jazz
If you were to pick the most powerful band
on record today, you would find it difficult to
eliminate any one of those represented here: Stan
Kenton and his screaming brass, Woody Herman's
driving clarinet, Benny Goodman's big new bop
band and Charlie Barnet, Dizzy Gillespie, Bobby
Sherwood, Billy Butterfield and Benny Carter.
You'll hear Kenton's famous "Artistry Jumps,"
Sherwood's "Forest," and Barnet's "Pan Ameri-ciana."
Sherwood's version of "Forest" is, in my opin
ion, the outstanding number on this disc. "For
est" has touches of Ravel's "Bolero," and it foes
to the other extreme with touches of Kenton's
screaming brass. This is the finest example of
concert jazz I have heard in a long time.
Another new Capitol release features Billy May
and his new band. May's band has a new sound in
dance music. The saxes and brass lead the way
with "When My Baby Walks Down the Street,"
and the rhythm section keeps a solid danceable
beat in the background. The band's working to
gether seems almost effortless. The new style is
a welcome change, and you will probably hear
more bands changing to it.
