, The moral character of our government accurately reflects the current moral charac
ter of American citizens, Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon said Tuesday morning before the
24th annual Honors Convocation at the University.
"I think the first step necessary for the improvement of ethical standards in govern
ment is to improve ethical standards of the grassroots of America," Senator Morse said.
"It is not only true, as Jefferson said, that democracy can be no stronger than the
enlightenment of its people, but it is also true that the ethical standards of the officials
and employees of a democracy will not rise above the ethical standards of its people."

'Power Of Press' Admits
M Coed To Flood Ureas
News Editor
"It's a man's world" versus the
power of the press. This was the
conflict I ran into in the com
pletely militarized emergency
areas of Omaha Sunday.
At that time, national guard
and fifth army personnel were
under orders not to allow
women into any restricted areas.
I was working as photographer
and general assistant to Richard
Thompson, Information writer

Department We rather naively
thought that his pass and a let

eral requesting that every cour
tesy be shown to him and his
party would be enough to get
us past guards,
can argue with a regular army
sergeant with an order to carry
out So we had to get an official
pass declaring that I was a State
Department employee and could
travel in any Omaha area at any
This produced results although
guards were obviously unhappy
about letting me through. Once
past the guards we discovered
that the tension so characteristic
of the past few days had almost
disappeared. The only activity was
watching levees and the receding
flood waters.
Small fires burned along the
dikes, marking points where
signal corps men manned tele
phones. Barges loaded with
crushed rock moved slowly
along the Missouri while Salva

plied with chocolate bars, cold
hot dogs and black coffee.

Senator Morse said that if our
citizenry is "to be enlightened
on the great issues that confront
our country in this dark hour of
crisis, then each individual in
our citizenry must do more in
dividual thinking about the
problems which confront us."
One of the sad facts which
I see on the American scene
today," Senator Morse said, "is
that millions of our people
have stopped thinking for
themselves. Their taste for
facts is being destroyed by
the spices and relish that is
being used to cover up the
tainted, spoiled, insidious pro
paganda that is being fed to
the American people these
days. The result is that the
American people are starving
for the want of a diet of high
political ethics."
Senator Morse described five
major areas in which the dis
crepancy between the kind of
morals and character we have
in government, and the kind we
would like to have, come into
sharp focus.
1. Our government is a repre
sentative, republican form of
government not a democracy,
Senator Morse explained. This
system provides that the repre
sentatives of a free people in
the Congress or in a legislature
must act on the basis of facts to
keep faith with the truth and to
stand up against a temporary
wave of public opinion char
acterized by an emotional re
action to propaganda misrepre-

!(!( Stage Crew Workers
Describe No-Date Problem
Feature Editor
As opening night for Kosmet
Klub's spring show, "Girl Crazy,"
araws near, DacK stage crews are
making a final effort to have
props, scenery and other produc
tion necessities ready in time.
I ine boys who can't take bows
for their efforts are working
; night and day and have been
i excused from Wednesday's
I classes to work on the props,
; according to Marshall Kushner,
construction crew worker. Kush
ner said the workers' worst
I problem is that they don't have
any tune for dates. He cited
the date problem as a cause of
lowered; moral.
Describing some of the diffi
culties in making props, Kushner
said they were almost finished
painting a backdrop when they
ran out of paint. He said they
had to repaint the whole backdrop
with another color.
Another setback of the con
struction crew concerned a plat
form of which they were specially
proud. The platform was to be
used for the chorus to stand on.
The first time it was used the
platform collapsed from the
weight of the chorus.
This year's show is very col
orful with a lot of good humor,
reported Jerry Johnson, pro
duction manager. "The show
is well cast and there is a lot
of good dancing," he said.
Johnson said there are more
scenes than in last year's show
and the music is better known.
