This Is Worth Fighting For
Everybody needs a cause in which he can be
lieve. That is a basic axiom of human behavior.
To do a thing well, a person should be motivated
by a feeling that what he is doing is necessary
and right Otherwise, he cannot do as good a job
as he might otherwise,
America is fighting a war. Some people choose
to call it a "police action," but people are fighting
and dying in Korea in what seems to be a good
battle. From all appearances, it looks like a war.
America is inducting hundreds of thousands of
men into its armed forces. Young' men are being
drafted or enlisted into all major services. The air
forces are obtaining the most volunteers. For the
first time in history, the marine corps is using
the draft to obtain recruits. The nation's young
men are not as anxious to serve their country as
they were on Dec. 8, 1941.
Why? After talking with a number of students
and men in the armed forces, I think the answer is
quite simple. Most of them have only a hazy
idea what the United States and the United Na
tions are trying to accomplish in Korea. They are
sadly confused. They can plan on nothing. Stu
dents cannot plan what they will do after gradu
ation because a hitch in the service seems almost
certain. Men in the service cannot plan because
they are not sure that the term for which they
were enlisted or inducted is definite because of
unsettled world conditions.
In all of the nation's previous wars, the Ameri
can people have been fighting for some great
humanitarian ideal. They were ( fighting aggres

They are training to defend their country and some
of them are being sent to Korea, while at home,
things go on as usual. One, who had been to
Korea, remarked that in this country, it seemed
almost as if there were no war going on. Many
service men aren't sure what they are fighting' for
And they are not as good soldiers for not knowing.
The current foreign policy debate is causing
no great amount of confidence among the Ameri

To the Student Council:
As you know there is con

Engineers Executive board and

cerning the assimilation of
Engineers Open House into Col

i -matter careful thought and
would like to present our view
to the Student Council, with a
view in mind of a solution that
would be of mutual benefit to
all concerned.
To begin with, we would like
statements fall far short of giving this informa
tion. We learn that we must be patriotic and
support our government, but we are not sure
why we must do this. Our leadership is not in
spiring; therefore the people can ha-dly be ex
pected to be inspired.
The American public has been sitting on the
edge of its chair for over a year waiting for some
thing to happen a war, a settlement, a statement
of policy. Nothing has happened yet. As a result
the public is becoming infected with a disease
known as "I don't give a damnism." They are
sitting on the edge of their chairs waiting, but
they have been alternately frightened and encour

hard enough, they felt there would be a better
day after the war was over.
In the Korean action, no better day looms
once the war is done. The threat of Russian ag
gression still looms large on the horizon. Com
mentators, statesmen and military leaders peri

the danger is and that we must arm to the teeth
to met this threat. There is no feeling of hope
only despair.

there was no eligibility check, and ballot count

view of the adult it has little ap
peal, but more important is the
standpoint of view of the high
school students.
We feel that is should not be
suggested that he take time from
his studies to come to Lincoln and
participate in the above outlined
program, because he simply does
not have the time. We feel that
he should only be invited to come
if he can be given something that
is of as much or more educational
value than he would have received
by attending classes at home, and
that College Days as it now exists
does not fall into that category.
Since there is such a divergence
of objectives, it is readily ap
parent why Engineers Open
House and College Days as it now
exists are incompatible.
In addition to the above re
marks, we would like to point out
that College Days is presented to
the public as an all-University
function. Yet it is not sponsored
by a group representative of the
University as a whole. The
nucleus of the board is self ap
pointed. In addition to this there
is no constitution, no set of rules
or regulations, that clearly re
fines the organization and pro
cedures of the College Days board
There is no concise statement of
objectives or purposes. In fact
since there is no constitution
filed with and approved by the
Student Council this group has no
right to carry on any activity
concerning the University of Ne
braska. This is according to
Article III, section I, paragraph
(a) and (b).
However we ieel that College
Days if properly organized could
provide a valuable service to the
University and to the public,
especially the high school student.
For that reason we are submitting
the following proposals.
1) The College Days Board
as it now exists be considered
defunct on the grounds that it
does not have a constitution
approved by the Student
2) Since there is no other
group on the campus that is
entirely representative of the
student body, we would like
to suggest that it become the
responsibility of the Student
Council to prpare a constitution
for an activity that is similar
in nature of Engineers Open
House, but which includes the
entire University.
In the event that the Student
Council organizes a function that
parallels Engineers Open House

wish to assure you that we will

separate- and individual basis.

Life doesn't begin at 40 any
more. It begins at 100.
This statement is being proved
by the YMCA which is celebrating
its one hundredth anniversary as
a United States men's organization.
The YM was first organized by
George Williams in 1844 in Lon
don. Its main purpose at that time
was to provide a home-away-from-home
for English textile
workers. At the time of its or
ganization, England was under
going an industrial revolution. As
a result of this, many men had no
contact with any sort of spiritual
guidance or any feeling of "be
longing" to any certain group. The
YM was a partial answer to this
The erowth of the YM was very
rapid. Within ten years of its ori
ginal birth in England, other
YMCA groups had been organ
ized in Scotland, England, Canada,
Ireland and the United States. One
of the reasons for its tremendous
popularity can be explained par
tially by the fact that it came at
"just the right time." It fit in
with the social and spiritual needs
of the time.
The first University YM
group was organized seven
years after the YM had been
established in the United States.
Several students at the Univer
sity of Virginia organized a
men's student YM in 1858.
The YMCA on the University :
campus was organized in 1942
when it became a branch of the
Lincoln YMCA.
The University YM is a separ
ate organization, tied only with
the local and national YM organ
izations. It operates financially
from its own budget and from
funds received from the Com
munity chest.
The motto of the YMCA, "Spirit,
Mind, Body," is carried out in
the many varied activities spon
sored bv the campus YM. The
YM has two main divisions: Ag
campus and City campus. Though
the activities of the two divisions
vary, their goals and purposes are
one: to give students a more Chris-
Bible study groups. Students
participating in this group's ac
tivities choose a portion of the
Bible to read and discuss each
week. After the Bible study,
both the YM and YW sponsor a
program on current topics of
interest. Such problems as men

by the group.

The City campus is also in
the process of beginning a radio
workshop. This workshop would
include a program once a week
on which drama and a Chris

would be featured.

of the annual city campus
