THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Friday, February 15, 1952
Another Year Completed
It would be all too easy writing of the years
since that first small group of state legislators, in
1869, passed a bill providing for this institution
of higher learning simply to review those 83
years, point to the improvements and changes. But
we can find that elsewhere, even In his issue of
Students who have been here more than one
year have witnessed improvement in that short
period. As alumni in the near future we will
watch our alma, mater chance even more
change yearly to meet new demands and new
educational ideas. We will have to wait until we
are alumni to tee some of the changes we now
Nebraskan staff members who eventually will
Join the ranks of former students, visualize a great
deal. We hope for the day an honor system can
effectively be enacted at Nebraska. We anticipate
. the day students will not face the old book prob
lem each semester. We hope for the day when the
Nebraska legislature will approve more than simply
minimum funds to help our alma mater climb up
ward in the ranks of universities.
- We envision the time when this University,
as many others, takes the initiative in new pro
gramswhen we will have television courses and
broadcasts, and practical courses on atomic
energy. We hope for the day when students will
be given the chance to act like adults in regard
to campus politics and, on the other hand, for
the day when students will act like adults on
such matters. We hope for a greatly improved
adviser-advisee system where students can get
constructive help from the minute they enter
We hope for a great athletic department clean,
outstanding and above the scandals of today. We
want an Improved Student Union like other cam
puses offering us benefits other student unions
do. We hope the building program some day will
be at least partially completed so the paper plans
can be destroyed, replaced by the buildings.
We hope some day to see Independents take an
active interest in the campus whether they are
organized or not. We hope Greek cut throating will
stop; we hope students will lose the apathy toward
curent events permanently. We hope the day will
come when all, instead of some faculty members,
will treat students fairly.
On the more selfish side, we'd like to see West
Stadium's printing facilities expanded so The Daily
Nebraskan could be printed there. We'd like to see
"fixed" and "paid" elections disappear. We'd like
to see political deals stop and elimination of con
trol of the campus by a small percentage.
We'd hope University coeds will be given
more adult treatment instead of being restricted
at every turn. At the same time we'd like to see
the attitudes of both women and men such that
restrictions could be safely lessened.
Obviously, there's not enough space to discuss
all our wishes. We probably envision a Utopia col
lege. We know all these dreams never will be real
ized but they are goals. Some goals may tread on
some feet at present, but possibly they would be
best for the University as a whole.
Since this is charter day, we probably should
be praising the University, its achievements and its
officials who have made it as great as it is.
But, instead, we feel it is better to aim for a
greater University, not being satisfied with the
present status. We readily appreciate the capable
leadership under which the University has grown.
We salute students who have contributed toward
the betterment of the school.
We certainly salute Dr. R. G. Gustavson as
the latest chancellor responsible for the Uni
Although many times we think the grass is
greener on other campuses, we might remember
that the grass is not so thick or may be more
worn in places.
As students we are proud of the University.
We do salute the past progress, anticipating and
encouraging new goals and achievements. J.K.

A Prayer Among The Shouts
The place was Berlin.
It was August, 1951.
In the Russian eastern sector of the city thous
ands of cheering Communist youths were singing,
shouting and celebrating in one of the biggest ral
lies Berlin has ever seen.
Not far away, hardly out of earshot, in fact, a
much smaller group of young people perhaps a
hundred or two sat quietly discussing a different,
much less exciting subject.
Today, six months later, the noise of the east
Berlin rally has died out. But the words beard
in the other meeting are today being printed and
spoken in a score or more tongues in 56 countries
around the world. The words have even slipped
back under the Iron Curtain and have emerged
In Russian, Chinese and Polish.
For, you see, the meeting in the western sector
of the city was a meeting of Christian young
people, seeking God's answer to the problems fac
ing men and the world today and tomorrow.
These youths represented millions of Christians
in nearly every one of the 56 countries belonging
to the World's Student Christian federation. They
were seeking to dissolve the band of steel which
divided the city of Berlin; they were attempting
to erase the line between Black and White, Red
and Yellow; they were set upon uniting all men
in worship and in obedience to the Almighty.
They spoke for college students. And they
planned for college students an experience in
which all could participate regardless of the
side of the Curtain, the color of the skin or
the details of wort hip.
They called Christian students to unite in uni
versal prayer, declaring: "When we thank God
for all and pray for all without forgetting any
group in college, any students or any professors
God has forgotten nobody in His love! only then
do we really pray for ourselves . . . Let us there
fore bring them all before God in our prayer. Let
us not forget any, not even those in authority."
It wasn't an easy thing to say for the young
man who wrote these words. For, you see, he was
an East German, living under the heel of the
"Let us thank God for them, (the authorities)
however small the good they maintain perhaps
against their Ideology or intentions and let God
deal with them in His wrath where violence and
Injustice are done," he wrote in the call to prayer.
"Let us beseech Him for His blessing on them all,
that the Holy Spirit may transform their hearts
also, and that they may walk in fear of the Holy
God , , . Let us include them in our prayer simply
as we pray for our parents and families, for our
brothers and sisters in the student Christian move
ment, for our teachers and pastors. And if we suf
fer under them, yes, if they persecute and even kill
us, let us still praise the love of God for the whole
world as those who, though dying, yet live and
do not perish. Let us bless them that curse us."
Six months after he wrote these words thous
ands of students are reading them and are called
to prayer in prayer for a brother they do not
know. In praying for students such as the East

They will "thank God for all those who freely

indifference, all pride, all longing for revenge, and
that He unite them in a mutual respect, in which
each esteem the other better than himself."
It will, indeed, be a Universal Day of Prayer
for Students. K.Ry.
(Note. Universal Day of Prayer for Students
will be observed on the University campus with
a buffet supper at 5:30 p.m. Sunday at the Uni
versity Episcopal chapel, 13th and R streets, and
with a speech by Dr. T. Z. Koo, chairman of the
department of Oriental studies at the State Uni
versity of Iowa, at 7:15 also in the chapel. A
prayer service will follow Dr. Koo's talk.)
Never A Surplus
It is not ofen that University students as a
whole are given the chance to pick up some good)
leadership tips. Generally, conferences dealing with
such topics are for benefit of students already
known as campus leaders.
This Saturday, however, Mortar Boards and
Innocents, senior men and women recognized for
.outstanding leadership ability, are sponsoring a
leadership conference for all students.
Because almost any work a student could un
dertake during his lifetime will involve some as
nort of leading others, each University student
could benefit a great deal from the discussions
Saturday. Having a student leader and a faculty
member or an administrative official jointly lead
ing each of six groups and the coffee hours gives
some assurance that both a professional view and
a student view will be offered. In addition to these
discussions, during a coffee hour in the morning,
various leadership techniques will be aired. Pre
ceding that, the principal of Lincoln high school,
William B. Bogar, will talk on the value of lead
ership in human relations.
The Nebraskan realizes that not every Uni
versity student aspires to be president of the
United States. But The Nebraskan also maintains
there is never a surplus of good leaders. Knowl
