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." federal government. 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 following statements: 1. We approve the continuation of the presont recruitment of our necessary armed forces by the selective service system and by volunteering. 2. We agree with the laudable objectives that have guided the nation security training commis sion in formulating its proposed plan for military training and the creation of a reserve force name ly: a. To reduce In the next few years our stand ing active military forces; b. To build up a youthful and effective re serve; c.

Barb Wyie 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 the campus. 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.

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 tensen I would not enforce re-.. garding the eligibility of any other student. Sincerely, T. J.

I 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 Botleable lack ef overlapping f represtentatlon s Doily Thought Produce much, consume little, labor dili gently, sjwak cautiously. Chinese. 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 i f i J Jul (Dailif.

Every once in a while an unknown singer w ill turn out a disc which is not only bnt also a superb musical achievement. Rita Moss has ac complished this with "Love Me or Please Let Me Go." Rita has high, clear, distinctive voice which is pleasing to listen to. She shows great promise. One: of the top discs on campus is the Bell sisters recording of "Bermuda." The 3ell sisters are west coast girls, Cynthia, age 16, and Kav, age 11. This platter marks the Bell - sisters' debut Henri Reni's orchestra does the background in its usual fine style.

Dean Martin, the crooner or the comedy team of Martin and Lewis, has recorded the two top tunes from his latest show. "Sailors Beware." Martin's re laxed and husky voice carries "Never Before" in fine style but his effort on "The Sailors Polka" would almost be futile if this "movie material" on wax was not backed by a fine vocal group. Vaughn Monroe's new releases "I Like It, I Like It" and "Ten derly" are pleasant surprises. Monroe's singing is relaxed. It it good to hear the "old Monroe" again. To The Editor: Let's clear up this haze over the question of Greek versus Inde pendent. As a University woman and an Independent, I would like to say that from my experiences and observations, this discrim ination against unaffiliated wo men in activities is, if exisitent, 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 seems that, life, whether one's friends bt made by sharing membership in a social organization or by chancs acquaintance. Of course it is easier to make such contacts if one belongs to a sorority because one Is im mediately surrounded by 50 or 60 potential friends. If one does not belong to such an organised group it means only that the individual must make greater ef fort to become acquainted and to mr'.e other people aware of his qualifications for interests in activities. Everyone has an equal chance to prove himself whether he be Greek or Independent If one f-ils to make the grade in his chosen activity, let him first look at himself and not be so quick to misjudge the board members of these activities.
