THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
lightning Ken' Dies
Nebraska lost one of its leading citizens and
the republican party lost one of its most vocal
leaders in the death of the junior senator from
Nebraska, Kenneth S. Wherry. He was certainly
one of the most colarful and best-known men to
represent Nebraska in congress for many years
Although illness has slowed his activities some
what during recent months, he was active in bp
position to the Truman administration throughout
hw senate career. He was the only Neoraskan ever
to serve as floor leader of either party in the
Wherry was active In politics throughout his
life. He served aa mayor of Pawnee City, state
senator, state republican chairman, candidate
"for governor and United States senator and
finally two terms as senator. He grained his nick
name. "Lightning: Ken," because of his work as
republican party promoter, and salesman of
furniture, coffins, pianos, real estate and imple
ments. He was president of the 1914 graduating
class at the University. He also was a member of
the debate team, training which served him well
In later life.
His career" was varied, but never quiet. He
never hesitated to express his opinions and often
spoke faster than his train of thought. The senate
Often chuckled at what came to be known as
"Wherryisms,'' results of his fast speech. He once
referred to the vice president as "Mr. Paragraph"
and to Senator Holland of Florida as "The Sena
tor from Holland."
He had been mentioned as a favorite son can-
didate for the presidency in 1952. His career in
the senate seemed only starting after eight years.
Few people realized that his career was about over.
He was only 59.
In Wherry, Nebraska has lost, its most influ
ential congressman. President Truman once wrote
Wherry that although he almost always differed
with Wherry politically, the president admired "an
, honest opponent."
Wherry's death poses two interesting questions:
1. Who will succeed him in the senate?
2. Who will be the new republican floor
The answer to the first question may be given
' soon by Gov. Val Peterson, who has the power to
appoint a successor. The governor has already in
dicated that he will not resign to accept the office
now. In a way, Wherry's death could forestall the
battle between Sen. Hugh Butler and Gov. Peter
son in the next election. The governor, if he chose
could file for Wherry's seat instead. The1 governor's
appointee will serve only until the next election,
when a successor will be chosen to fill out the rest
of Wherry's six-year term. Former Gov. Dwigm
Griswold and Rep. Howard Buffet have already
been mentioned as possible successors.
The identity of the new republican floor
leader of the senate is likewise in doubt It might
be Sen. Leverett Saltonstall, who is now minor
ity whip. Or, it might be someone else. Time will

Bring 'Em Home
The University, according to the Alumni as
gjciation. is losing scores of outstanding high
school students to other universities because out-f-state
schools offer many liberal scholarships.
Many gifted students who might like to
Tnse to the University have received offers
isfflu other schools which they could not reject.
"The Alumni association is worried about the sit
uation. At the organization's board of director's
meeting, Homecoming weekend, the scholarship
Question was discussed and directors decided to
do something about it.
They found the only official scholarships of
fered to freshmen by the University are Regent's
scholarship ($50 toward the $80 tuition for one
semester, followed by a similar amount for the
second semester if the student's work is satis
factory), six or eight to Lincoln students, three to
Seward students and one to a Geneva high school
Since the Alumni association is not a collect
ing agency, the organization cannot sponsor a
fund raising drive to finance additional scholar
ships. But it can present a need to alumni for
approval or disapproval. For those alumni who
consider the need worthy, the University
Foundation has indicated willingness to co
operate in receiving gifts earmarked for fresh
men scholarships. The Foundation also will set
up a committee to decide scholarship amounts
and qualifications for winners, based primarily
The matter came up at the board meeting
when one member mentioned he knew of a girl
in another state who wanted to come here but had
to go elsewhere because no scholarship was avail
able here. This girl, the member said, had definite
leadership qualities and the University lost a
It is encouraging that some University
alumni are interested in getting students to the
school for reasons divorced from athletics.

In increasing number we find among us such
slogans as, "By helping others you help yourself";
"the life you save may bet your own"; "the child
you save may be'your own," and so on.
Granted that there is an element of truth in
these statements, have we stopped to analyze what
is there presented as the motivating power for our
service and consideration for others? It is certainly
self. It is catering to man's innate selfish nature
which brings so much woe and conflict in the rela
him good. This makes for peace and the enrich
ment of life in every area.
In the Gospel of St. Matthew, chapter 20, verse
28, we read, "Even as the Son of man came not
to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give
his life a ransom for many." This was true, un-
selfish service the Lord of all creation, the Ruler
of all, yet spending His life in the service of all
mankind, culminating it with His suffering and
tionships between individuals and nations. Serving sacrifice on the cross that we might have redemp
others and showing them consideration simply ior
the sake of ourselves, or chiefly for ourselves, cer
tainly takes away its true value.
' True service we render when out of love to
our fellowman, without selfish designs, we do
tion from sin, forgiveness with God. Love for man
kind prompted His action yes, love.
With this wonderful example of our Savior
ever before us, and knowing and accepting God's
daily great mercy and love unto us, especially
