THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
: Yankee Interference
Thursday, February 21, 1952
The "Yankee" student newspaper at Iowa State
college and the Daily Tar Heel at the University
of North Carolina have been carrying on an inter
esting editorial feud regarding segregation at the
When North Carolina's law school voted to
hold nnsegregated dances (the action later was
nullified by the faculty) the Iowa State Dally
commended the school in editorial columns. The
Iowa editor wrote: "... we think the Tar Heel's
philosophy about a 'student is a student fits.
Perhaps someday it will be a 'man is a man.' "
The southern paper responded with: "All of
which goes to show that our Yankee friends con
tinue in their interest and advice in our affairs."
This brought the following reply by the Iowa
newspaper: . . we're a little tired of southern
complaints of Yankee interference in what the Tar
Heel is pleased to describe as 'our affairs.' They
are not your affairs, sir. They are our affairs as
well. The constitution belongs to all of us and we
have a right, whether the south likes it or not, to
object to violations of its spirit and letter.
. . , States duties go hand In hand with states'
rights. So long as southerners continue to put
up two boards In their public square listing
names of their men in service one for Negroes
and one for whites so long will northerners
continue to protest. And if the Tar Heel doesn't
like It, they had better do something about it
The Iowan editorial concludes: "As long as
progressive southerners continue in that (referring
to action by the oldest literary and debating so
ciety calling for repeal of all North Carolina segre
gation laws) we'll applaud them."
The Iowa State Daily editorials contain some
sound points. The responsibility for equality of
all citizens withir our borders rests with all citi
zens throughout the country.
But we can't throw too many stones. Our own
house is not strong enough, for we do not always
practice what we so easily recommend to others.
Last weekend, this editor was visiting the
University of Denver campus. One restaurant
had "reserved" signs on most tables but the Ne
braska delegation was permitted to sit at one of
these tables. Upon inquiry, it was discovered
the signs were merely placed for convenience
should Negroes walk in.
We do not have to travel 500 miles to find
discriminatory practices. They exist in Lincoln also.
The Nebraskan applauds Iowa's stand. But
we also remind ourselves that people who live in
glass houses shouldn't throw too many stones.
A Price For Peace

chairman of the department of Oriental studies at
the State University of Iowa declared himself a
pacifist Chinese style. The Chinese concept of
peace, he said, is not passive, but active. Armed
force is to be used whenever and wherever neces
sary. In his Sunday morning sermon Koo main
tained that the moral and economie evils' of war
are not enough to keep peace. Applying the
theory of an ancient Chinese philosopher to 1952,
he declared that a force strong enough to meet
any aggressor's forces must possessed by the
United Nations if peace is to become a reality.
The Korean war, he added, is an attempt to
develop such a force. If the attempt is not suc
cessful, he said, free nations of the world must
try again and again, if necessary until they
finally possess suffilcent strength to maintain
an aggressive peace.
Continuing Ms idea of a "maintained peace,"
the Western cause.
His reasons for such a move are:
1. The United States could maintain some de
gree of contact with the Chinese people. Such
contact is not now possible through Chiang's
government, which certainly does not represent
the majority of the nation's population.
2. Recognition of the government would have
lessened the Communists' need to turn to Rus
sia as a source of aid. This argument, he de
clared, rests mainly upon the two cliques within
the Chinese Communist movement the National
Communists and the International Communists.
Since the defeat of Chiang, the Internationalists
the Moscow Reds have gained strength
through importation of Russian-built equipment.
With this equipment the Internationalists are se
curing control over the Chinese armies and thus
over the entire government.

from the east coast sector for operations in Korea,

Chinese people and former Nationalist soldiers at

exaggerate in your statement that
you can blame the checkers who

sure that control students are not

hand, if you have factual informa
