THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
r. George Houser Stresses
qua! Privileges, Regwmess Or Race
All Americans have equal
rights and privileges to do as
they please; therefore lines may
not be drawn restricting these
rights on the basis of race or
creed, according to Dr. George
Houser. executive secretary of
the Congress of Racial Equality,
Houser. speaking at the Unit
versity on "Techniques of
... Fighting Discrimination," said
'Any step taken toward end
ing discrimination is a signifi
cant advance." He believes
that a "piece-meal fashion" of
attacking racial discrimination
is as effective as any method.
I.. Whether the progress is made In
educational, economic or social
fields it all contributes to a de.
sired "cumulative" effect.
, According to Ruth Sorenson,
who accompanied Houser at a
press conference Thursday
morning, there is more racial
discrimination in Lincoln than
is generally realized. She said
that although theaters, roller
and the municipal swimming
skating rinks, bowling alleys
pool were free of discrimination
there is still a race problem at a
nearby amusement park.
Courts have upheld CORE
suits brought against managers
enforcing a discriminatory policy
but the organizations lor aoonsn.
ing intolerance did not like to go
into court unless other methods
failed, Miss Sorensen said.
A popular method of discover
ing discrimination is to send test
cases into establishments where
bad racial policies are suspected.
If the situation is discovered the
groups discuss the question with
the manager as the first attempt
to chanee his policy.
According to Houser workers
are "pledged to a non-violence
code" and will not return blows
or argue vigorously.
Movements to overcome racial
discrimination are not made an
tagonistically but peaceably.
Educational campaigns, distri
bution of leaflets and similar
methods are used to arouse action
on race conflicts.
Houser believes that discrim
ination against one, two or
three people is cause for a
campaign against an establish
ment regardless of the feeling
of the : majority of colored
people toward the action.
There is no one place to begin.
Attacking the problem on an eco
nomic or amusement level all
have their effect, one not being
much more affective than an-J

"Mourning Becomes Electra" is
a tragedy in three parts. Each
part is actually a complete play in
itself. Part one, "Homecoming,"
is more or less the introduction
to the rest of the play and intro
duces the conflict.
The conflict in "Homecom
ing" is one of hatred and Jeal-
iousy. It is in part the story of
a daughter who wants to be
"the wife of her father and the
mother of her brother." The
play involves one strange pro
cession of a guilty mother, a
betrayed father, a monstrous
paramour, a bewildered son,
and a distraught daughter.
"Homecoming" is based on the
Greed Tragedy, "Oresti" by
Aeschyeus. The adaption by Eu
gene O'Neill was very successful
Wes Jensby, "Homecoming"
producer, commented, "It is one
of those plays which if effectively
