2 THE DAILY NEBRASKAN Friday, April 25, 1952 EDITORIAL PAGfe Final In Activities? There will be the bitter tears of disappoint ment There will be the radiant smiles of triumph. Thirteen men and five to 20 women will join the ranks of Innocents and Mortar Board. Ivy Day festivities will be complete. To those juniors so honored for outstanding work in activities it will be the day of ultimate recognition. To some It may seem a day of fail ure. The signs have already appeared. Jittery Juniors are consuming coffee by the gallons. They are holding hush-hush conferences dis cussing and prophesying the chances of their fellow activity workers. Some are pricking up their ears, some are smiling their brightest smiles, when Mortar Boards or Innocents ap pear. And final plans are being laid for the junior jitters party. On Ivy Day afternoon the pent-up hopes or fears will be resolved. To those who will wear the mortar board or devil's head sincere congratulations are offered in advance. They have spent three years making a name for themselves on campus. Some started as freshmen with Mortar Board or Innocents as goal for which to fight. Others started with only an interest in doing something other than study ingstarted without hopes of recognition. Lost hours of sleep, too many cigarets and too many cups of coffee, assignments done between classes and mass' meetings will add up to Ivy Day honors for them. Mortar Boards and Innocents have chosen as their successors those juniors who they believe are the outstanding campus leaders. Every other student should have nothing but praise and respect for those who will be tapped or tackled on Ivy Day. To those who have fought and failed it need not be a day of despair. It is true that some who will not join the elite circle will see the hopes of two or three years shattered within a space of one o. two brief hours. Those who have this feeling of absolute failure should not leave Ivy Day fes tivities as bitter and disillusioned juniors. They must search their own minds and prove that those selected might have spent more time in activities, or done more outstanding work, or had higher . . . Oh, Ivy Day averages. They must realize that they have not failed their final exam in activities, for there is no final exam. "Nines" will be given to those who are chosen on the basis of their over-all years' work, but many with "seven or eight aver ages" will be close behind. Those with "sevens" and "eights" must realize that they too have con tributed much to this campus. Praise for their activities remains with all who knew them. They must not feel that their useful campus life is over, One year, five years, or ten years after May 3, 1952 many of those chosen as Mortar Boards and Innocents may be leading extremely suc cessful lives. Many may not. Many of those who were not chosen may be leading equally successful lives. Many may not Those juniors with jitters must realize that their futures are not hanging from a thread which will be broken or strengthened on the afternoon of Ivy Day. The highest reward for activity workers is all that will be granted. Ivy. Day is festival day. It is a day of recog nition. It is a day of joy. Let it not be a day of bitter tears. S. A. Going East When a staff meniber of The Daily NebrasKan is honored, it is with pride that other membrs look to his accomplishment. This time the recognition came to Charles Gomon, Daily Nebraskan news columnist, who has been appointed to West Point Military Academy. Gomon, who will spend four years at the academy, was told the news under a rather pe culiar circumstance. While waiting to begin a discussion on a pian for a future defense pro gram for youth at his hometown, Norfolk, his younger sister arrived with the news. The oc casion was rather timely Gonton was uphold ing the merits of a strong professional army for the future defense. And, appropriately enough, when the chair man introduced Gomon, the last speaker, it was with these words: "And now we'll hear from the Pentagon." The statement caused quite an up roar with the audience. The Daily Nebraskan will lose an excellent staff member, but it is with pride that we wish him well on his new adventure. J. K. Barbed Wire .Barb Wylie- Culture At NU The library at the University used to be housed in Architectural hall. Perhaps the one person really responsible for the present building is a soft spoken old gentle man who has headed the College of Arts and Sciences for 20 years Dr. Charles H. Oldfather. Dr. Oldfather, who is leaving the University in June, saw that something should be done to give this campus the type of library that it deserved. He headed a committee which worked four or five years planning the Ideal library. When the ... For 20 Years Another campus tradition that owes its exis tence to the work of Dr. Oldfather is the Uni versity Memorial service which honors faculty members who have died. This service i typical of the type of thing Dr. Oldfather would origin ate. He has a deep Interest in his students, his position and his University. His life, he said, "Is just one committee meeting after another." Since his selection as dean, he has served as chairman of the Rhodes scholarship committee. The Rhodes scholarship entitles the recipient one uonaia i ix)ve estate was given to the University year's study at Oxford. Dr. Oldfather also served to be used on a new building, everything was as chairman of the committee on instructual poli- ready to go. As Dr. Oldfather put it, "the foot- cies and practices which surveyed any changes ings could have been poured two days after the that might be made in the instructional system, money was available." This committee instituted a new grading system The addition of this library has been one of that is "similar to the one we have now." the most significant advances of the University , jl. building program. It has been a great help to the students here who, the dean said, "are seriously Interested In wanting to get an educa tion." It has been his job to see that a broad base of the humanities and sciences is available for these students. A dean builds a good college by build ing the best possible faculty. Many of the mem bers of Dr. Oldfather's faculty are recognized throughout the nation as outstanding in their fields. But his life is not just one for scholarly pur suits Dr. Oldfather is just as human as the history he teaches. At one time he and his nephew won the doubles championship in the Lin coln tennis tournament. He has played a lot of golf in "the low 80's." Dr. Oldfather Is interested in university stu dents and he defines university students as those "individuals interested in things of the mind." D. P. Four Characteristics By the REV. REX KNOWLES Student Pastor After a not overly religious upbringing, four years in a not enthusiastically religious college, surrounded by frankly agnostic friends, it is a con tinually amazing surprise to me that I can be a humble student of Christ The small babe of Bethlehem brings me the message of love. The young boy of Nazareth teaches me obedience and humble service. The man of Galilee inspires me by his example and gracious teaching. The Savior of Calvary pro vides for my salvation. The risen Lord of the resurrection offers daily fellowship with a living companion. This Jesus is a Person, a solid historical fact. He is not a myth, but a man who lived on earth with a place in history and a date in time. This means a lot to me because it means my spiritual ideals are not part of some insubstantial dream; because in my game of follow the leader I am following, not a will of the wisp, but a real man, richly, vividly, completely human. That is why I find him so close. That is why his words speak so clearly to me. This Jesus is a Power. Men rose to follow him Margin Notes From Munsan, Korea, each day comes a news tory that goes something like ". , . flurry of un usual activity . . . but not Indication of any solid progress." Reminiscent, to a certain extent, of the busy work so characteristic of some University activities. There is much to be done much that could and must be done. Tragic to soldiers in Korea; disheartening to University progress. - The Taft-Elsenhower battle for primary votes appears like it will become a neck-and-Beck race before the Republican party's nomin ating convention this summer. Ike won la Pennsylvania bat Taft might get most of that - state's 70 delegates. Eisenhower forces are aim ing for an eastern block of delegate votes which might foul up the Taft machinery. They're off and running and the momentum of this race looks like it will bring both Taft and Elsen. bower spilling onto the convention floor they can't possibly stop sow - 1 Daily' Thought Gome persons do first, think afterward, and thea repent f orever,--Secker. . . . Not A Myth without hesitation. He took a tragic death and made of it a new path to reach the heart of God and the hearts of men. He is more powerful today than he was in Galilee nineteen centuries ago. This Jesus Is a Promise. Hovering over all this agonized world is his vision of the Kingdom of God. He made, the vision real, and he will yet make it true. Because of his persistent gentle spirit its cotning is as Inevitable as the seasons. This is his world and he will yet have his way in it. This Jesus is a Presence. He comes closer to me the farther I travel. No barrier can hinder his presence. And here today he stands, a chal lenge to the heart of every individual. He said he would be withdrawn and yet would remain intimately with his friends. I have found it so. This is Jesus Christ a person, a power, a promise, and a presence a fact, a force, our future and our friend.

It showed a little faith, that mere was stin a strong founda tion under the shambles. The col umn ended like this: "throueh the bitter differences of opinion and the scandalous conducts and the sham and hypocrisy of the en tire system and the inefficiencies and wastes that drain our pocket books and strain our patience there isn't a better government in the world. You can complain when you want to, fight with your neighbors, call Truman a bum, spit on the sidewalk and wear your hat at a cocky angle with relatively little threat of being tossed into jail.
