The political battle wagon
creaked on Monday afternoon, but
it slowed down as two Repub
ublican gubernatorial candidates,
Victor Anderson and Robert
Crosby, faced University students
in the Union ballroom.
Each candidate presented his
platform and allowed students to
question him, but the sparks just
didn't fly.
Only once did the candidates
take pot-shots at each other,
and even that didn't last long.
Crosby had presented his plan
for state government reorganiza
tion and had attacked 1le method
of state cigaret tax collections.
Anderson, switching from a
question concerning the state road
program, suddenly declared mat
it is the legislature's not the
governor's power to reorganize
He also reminded his audience
that Crosby was a member of the
legislature when the cigaret tax
legislation was enacted and when
the division of resources (one of
Anderson's pet peeves) was es
Student pulses quickened. The
audience hoped that, at last the
afternoon's discission would pick
When Crosby next took the
microphone (he had been asked
why he had attended Harvard
law school in preference to Ne
braska), he quickly jumped to
answer Anderson's jab.
Crosby pointed to the last gov'
ernmental reorganization (in
1919) and said that it was pow
ered by Gov. Sam McKelvie. He
declared that he hoped that "an
other governor could do a part of
what McKelvie did."
In answer to Anderson's other
remarks, Crosby explained that
he was only the lieutenant gov
ernor when the cigaret tax and the
division of resources were estab
Jlintd, tnd that, as lieutenant gov
ernor, he had no power to in
troduce legislation, vote, sponsor
legislation .r participate in the
work of any committee.
After this brief show, the
discussion moved on as before,
each candidate cautiously pre
senting his opinion or skillfully
avoiding derisive questions.
Anderson, who spoke first, pre
sented his platform as a "plain,
hard-headed, straight business
man." It included:
1. "The best education possi
ble" at the University. He de
clared that during the last legis
lature he was labeled as a Uni
versity backer and that he was
responsible for restoring a $600
thousand cut to the University's
budget. He was, he declared, one
of two introducers of a bill de
signed to legalize the board of
regents' pension plan.
2. More industry for the state.
He presented figures" which

Students Find Fallacies
In Politicians' Discussion
Following political talks by the
Republican can d i d a t e s, Victor
Anderson and Robert Crosby, in
the Union Monday, students ex
pressed their view points on the
points brought out in the dis
cussion. Names are omitted by
request of the students.
On Crosby's statement about
"reorganization," one student said,
"I can't see how this complete
reorganization can be done;
furthermore, I believe that these
duties were assigned to the de
partments best suited for the job
and these is no need for im
provement.' Anderson was completely
