Statehood For Hawaii
The opinions of statehood for
Hawaii are expressed by Ha
waiian students attending the
University. The interviews ap
pear on page four.
P Debate
Victor Anderson and Robert
Crosby, Republican candidates for
governor, will present their beliefs
on state issues before students and
faculty Monday at 2 p.m. in the
Union ballroom.
Anderson, who attended the
University, is at present the mayor
of Lincoln, and past member of
the state legislature.
Crosby, from North Platte, at
tended the University and re
ceived his law degree from Har
vard Law school. He is a former
lieutenant governor and was
speaker of the Nebraska legisla
ture in 1943.
The stand taken by Anderson
Is briefly this:
1. There should be no increase
In taxes.
2. Job opportunities should be
created within the state so that
Nebraska will not continue to
suffer a loss in population due
to a lack of jobs.
3. Our schools should be kept
at the highest possible level
and the standards of the schools
in the surrounding sliates should
be maintained.
4. The highway commission
should contain representatives
from all sections of the state.
The governor will be the chair
man, and there will be one rep
resentative from each congres
sional district.
Anderson favors the Pick-Sloan
plan. Crosby favors a plan simi
lar to the Pick-Sloan plan. In op
position to the Missouri Valley
Authority, he favors a resources
plan controlled by the states in

"There is no evidence that thf

Anouier point brought out by
Hinshaw was "if war comes,
cai we defend ourselves vic

In addition he remarked, "Civil
