In November 1951, this committee, acting Joint
ly with the educational policies commission of the
National Education association and the American
Association of School Administrators, approved a
statement subsequently Issued under the title,
"Education and National Security."
In the chapter on military manpower there
were two chief recommendations. The first was
that Immediate consideration be given to plans
specifically designed to meet the Impending man
power emergency. The assumption that such an
emergency was Imminent was bused on publlo
declarations during the preceding six months by
a number of responsible offloluls of the defense
department and the selective service system,
supported by the statistical Information then
available from those and other government
sources. A second recommendation was that the
several alternative plans suggested for meeting
the emergency manpower problem should be
considered by the congress separately from "a
program of universal military training designed
for use in peacetime and scheduled for opera
tion only after the current period of partial
mobilization has passed."
After prolonged study and discussion and
after serious consideration of relevant reports,
proposed legislation, and manpower statistics,
the committee or relationships of higher educa
tion to the federal government of the American
Council on education unanimously adopted the
1. We approve the continuation of the presont

Little Man On Campus ... By Bibler
"Boy. now, they have time getting that ball awsy from old
' Frod. huh?"
One way ia as good as an
other to start a column, they
tell me, so I might as well
start out with a pet gripe of
mine. It finally came into the
limelight in a Letterip in last
Friday's Daily Nebraskan;
the one that ended, "Won't
you (Greeks) lay off the in
dependents and let us do what
we choose." I've always won
dered why the Greeks on our
campus are always trying to
organize a multitude who ob
viously don't want to organ
ize. I've also always wondered
why they didn't recognize the
good deal they were getting
by the independents not or
ganizing, and do all they
could to keep it instead of
trying to strengthen the very
thing that, by Its weakness,
makes them strong. Maybe
the Greeks think the power
they have is unshakable and
will never fall in other hands.
I don't think so. By sheer
numbers, if nothing else, the
independents could take over
every controlling office on
remaps the evident politick
ing at last spring's constitu
tional vote Is a sign that the
Greeks began to feel the pillars
wobble. I don't pretend to know
all the reasons, or, as a non
faction member, know all the
answers. But the fury raised by
faction members at the idea
that the great student govern
ing body, the Student Council,
could be controlled by inde
pendents, could be a sign that
someone was getting panicky.
On the other hand, as long as
campus positions are determined
by who you know, whether in
dependent or Greek, let the inde
pendent, like everyone else, look
out for himself and his friends.
It's all in the game.
As long as we're talking about
the Student Council, I might say
that last Wednesday's meeting
turned into a dog-eat-dog affair.
In fact, for laughs, it even beat
the latest Martin and Lewis es
capade. Between a delegation of discussion of a series on finance.

To the Editor:
Arved II. Chrlstensen, a part-
time student (registered lor 7
credit hours the first semester),
complains bitterly In Monday's
Daily Nebraskan over being pre
vented from playing in intramural
basketball team competition.
The University senate's code
of eligibility for student activity
participation requires that a stu
dent be carrying successfully a
minimum of 12 credit hours In
order to participate In activi
ties, Including team partlcipa
tlon In intramural athletics.
Neither the Committee on Stu
dent Affairs nor the office of
the dean of student affairs has
the authority to set aside the re
quirements of said code. Om the
other hand it Is the duty of the
office of the dean of student
affairs and any agency of the
University to see that codes of
practice established by the ,
properly constituted authority
in the interests of the common
good are enforced impartially.
It Is a matter of regret to me
that, despite the lack of validity
in Christensen's appeal, we were
unable to arrange for a hearing
before the. whole committee. I
believe Chrlstensen will admit,
however, that I informed him that
I believed I could get the execu
tive committee of the Committee
on Student Affairs together if that
were satisfactory to him. I heard
nothing more from him until his
comment in Monday's Nebraskan.
I have no desire nor is there
any reason why I should enforce
a code requirement on Chrls

What Might Their Motive Be?
Members of N club and several Athletic depart
ment representatives appeared before the Student
Council last week to ask for N club representation
on the Council. The athletic speakers put forth
the opinion that since N club membership incor
porates both affiliated and unaffiliated men and
covers a majority of state areas, they were worthy
of membership on the Council and filled the re
quirements for Council membership.
Council members raised the objections that
previous N club representatives had not been too
consistent about attending meetings and the organ
ization had not appeared before the Council to
ask for representation . last spring when such
requests were called for.
It seems to be a mystery, at this time, why
N club feels in need of Student Council repre
sentation. The Incentive behind this sudden de
sire for participation in University government
has not been brought, forth. N club members ob
viously did not feel this governmental desire last
spring strongly enough to present their ease to the
Council, as many organizations did at that time.
It has been susgested that the Women's Ath
letic Association is just as deserving of Council
representation as is N club. WTAA includes Greeks
and independents in its membership, draws mem
bers from a non-restrictive membership potential
and is concerned with athletics, as is N club.
Ob the basis of being an activity. N club
might argue for their representation. If this Is
to be the ease, ALT, Ag and Engineering Exec
hoards. Bed Cross and all the other campus ac
tivities should be allowed a Council member. A
close look at the list of representatives allowed
the Council on the constitution passed by the
student body last spring shows that each organ
isation represented brings in a particular and.
s$ecine creep of University students. There Is a

as set up in the constitution.
It would appear that N club views will be ex
tremely well " represented on the Council, not
through their suggested member, but through the
representatives of an indepedent organization, in
terfraternity council, coops and residence halls,
YMCA and Religious Welfare Council.
X club might bolster their bid for Council
representation by announcing just exactly why,
at this time, they had made their bid for a part
in student government. Perhaps they could ex
plain why they did not feel it necessary to ap
pear before the Council when such petitions were
asked for last spring. Perhaps they might explain
what segment of student opinion would be repre
sented through their organization which is not
covered by the existant representation. R.R

Let's clear up this haze over the
question of Greek versus Inde

an Independent, I would like to
say that from my experiences

very slight. I have found the
board members of activities to
be fair and Impartial in judging
the individual on his worth and
not on his affiliation. The peo
ple that head these activities are
there because of their own ca
pabilities and because of their
interest in that particular activ
ity. Naturally these activity heads
are anxious to bring new and able
people into their organizations. It
is only logical that they look first
among their friends of these able
people. This is true throughout
