THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Thursday, February 7, 1952
Every four years our democracy submits to a
period of political bedlam. Present office holderi
want newspapers filled with stories of government
saving", of sound national and foreign policies and
of pictures showing them as "just one of the boys."
Out-of-offloe politicians point to government
corruption, magnify any error any official hw
made any year In his life and try to take credit
for anything favorable happening during the op
The political embers in Nebraska brightened
this week with the democratic and republican
pre-prlmarles in Omaha. Pre-primary endorse
ments and party platforms were the chief business
at the party wheels' meeting.
Interest in the conventions and primaries is
high, sparked by the many political posts which
re seemingly wide open. Several University stu
dents and faculty members attended the sessions.
Nebraskan must choose two senators one
for a long term and one to fill the term now
held by Fred Seaton of Hastings who was ap
pointed upon death of the Sen. Kenneth Wherry.
Adding fuel to the flames also Is the fact that
so many well known Nebraska political figures
are competing for offices some against each
other. These factors, plus the fact that this Is
a national election year will keep Nebrtskans
politically busy for several months.
The national politicking probably will not be
able to overshadow the state scene, at least until
primaries are over.
We are witnessing an exciting year. Exciting
because of both state elections and national elec
tlons. Important because we will decide what men
are to lead us through the crucial months and
years which are undoubtedly ahead of us.
In Nebraska there isn't much room for a can
dldate to make a political blunder this year. Re
publicans especially will be careful because of the
importance of the primary results.
Even on the state level, we can expect daily
OOP digs at Fair Deal and Trumanlsm foreign
policy blunders and government spending. We'll
hear republicans cry for government cuts In
expenditures, but we'll probably not hear many
Isuggestlons as to Just where cuts can be made.
The democrats will point to all successful parts
of the past 20 years of national ruling and try
to dig out any state corruption.
The battle is just beginning. Nebraska voters

The University's IFC has fulfilled one duty
for which they exist. They have met once a
month during this school term. Whether they
had the required two-thirds membership present
for a quorum to conduct business Is unknown.
The University's IFC, inadditioh to meeting
once a month, chose an Interfraternity sweetheart,
Patsy Peters, with whom we do not quarrel. How
ever, as The Daily Nebraskan pointed out in prev
ious editions, the method of selecting finalists was

the date, time, price of tickets and orchestra
for the evening, appeared on the campus one
week prior to the ball.
The social committee in charge of the ball had
300 tickets printed. Exactly 69 of these were sold.
This made a total of $172.50 proceeds on ticket
sales. The-hotel ballroom, used for the dance, cost
the IFC $75 and the orcehstra cost $300. Usual in
cidentals are not included in these figures. This
leaves a total of $202.50 deficit in IFC funds for
their annual ball, attended by, according to ticket
sales, 69 couples. To cover this deficit, the IFC
treasurer reports that an approximate $1800 was in
the treasury after fraternity rush week this fall.
semester. Complaints were turned in to The Ne
braskan concerning these violations. However, fra
ternity members have admitted they would not file
a complaint about another misbehaving fraternity
because they also violate rules.
According to various IFC members, the prob
lem of fraternity "Hell-Week." which, inciden
tally, Is ruled out by the IFC constitution, has
come up In several discussions this year. Al
., though not all campus fraternities have Initiated
their pledge classes there has been no great
trend toward the now nationally-advocated
"Help-Week." As nsual, the IFC has talked much
and done next to nothing.
The Interfraternity council exists and exists
under an approved constitution. Members meet,
elect officers and appear to carry out duties. They
lose money, they bring back nothing constructive
from an expensive trip to a national convention,
they allow rushing violations to exist under their
very noses, and they must still favor the outlawed

There is no doubt that King
George VI and Queen Elizabeth
reigned during a period of almost
constant crisis. Nor is there any
doubt that the Royal couple was
beloved by their subjects to a de
gree seldom attained by mon
archs. The future presents various
intricacies which will be re
ceived primarily by tradition.
For one, there are, in a sense,
three queens in England today

Queen, and her mother and
grandmother. Probably the 84-year-old
Queen Mother Mary

and Elizabeth, the widow of
George VI, will hold the title of
The line of ascension to the
throne looks something like this.
Prince Charles, the three-year-old
son of the new Queen is next in
line, followed by his baby sister
Anne and Princess Margaret Rose,
the Queen's sister, in that order.
The Crown of England that
Queen Elizabeth assumes is all
glory and no power. The sole
function of the Queen today is to
be a public figure. While her il
lustrious Dredecessor "Good Queen
Bess" bore among her titles that
of Empress of India, the modern
Elizabeth is just a Queen again.
Her late father dispensed with the
title Emperor of India fdr fairly
obvious reasons, in mo.
Among her many duties, the
new Queen will find that it will
be up to her to proclaim her
own son as Prince of Wales in a
grand pageant at Carnarvon
Castle in Wales. Elizabeth will
find that the training she re
ceived from her father from
earliest childhood will stand her
in gcod stead now. In a thousand
years, the English klnrs have
developed a technique of braz
ening it out. The position of
nominal ruler is possibly more
difficult than that of an actual
ruler. Princes and Princesses
are trained in a hard discipline

To the Editor:
Yes, our memories are short
when we can not remember the
drastic march upon the state capi
tol. This march was a march by
students who had or were going
to be discriminated against. With
rising tempers of the students, the
campus and the city of Lincoln
were in a state of chaos.
The terrible parking and
traffic situation Is again con
fronting the driving population
of the University. "Fraternity
Row" is about to become the
scene of bedlam, traffic tickets
and congested areas. One way
streets through the University
will cause as much misunder
standing between this institu
tion and the city police as has
been caused between the stu
dents and faculty in their park
ing problem. Now is the time to
act on this approaching prob
lem and not after the ordinance
has been put into effect.
Many of the students are not
aware or tne predicament tnat
is now facing the faculty and stu
dent bodies. The students are
parking in the faculty areas; the
faculty are parking in the student
areas. Both the faculty and stu-.
dents have been receiving sus-;
pensions or better known as
"rustications." To my knowledge,1
one instructor has been perma-j
nently dismissed and innumerable
assistants rusticated. There is no
object in this trivial scrutiny. Oh
yes, regulations should be en-
forced; but when regulations exist
to the detriment of the majority;
then they should be repealed.
Last year, when there was not
any discrimination, everyone ,
was perfectly happy with first i
come, first served. No one got
fired or suspended, and no one :
received detrimental records,
fit only for a common criminal.
Why was this change brought
about? It was brought about be
cause of the human inclination
to want favoritism, and the per
sons with the facilities to ad
vance their wants have maneu
vered Into an advantageous po
sition. This segregated parking system
has not worked, and there should
be considerable thought upon a
new or a more eriective system.
If there were enough parking
spaces and no segregation the
money that is spent upon patrol
