THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Wednesdoy, April 30, 1952
How About It?
Everyone Is talking about improving the Uni
versity these days. With the spring elections just
around the comer, campus improvement works
its way into nearly every conversation. But, as
usual, the most anyone gets done is talk. The
Daily Nebraskan would like to remind the faculty
of one very definite way that it can actively work
for campus improvement. Use the teacher rating
.They are kept in the office of Henry M. Cox,
Temporary A, Room 1. They are available for
the asking. '
How can teacher rating help Improve the
campus? The system as Instituted at the Uni
versity, Is designed to rate the Instructor on his
faults and virtues only as they are connected
with teachlnr. It Is not a popularity contest
which good Instructors should give to boost their
egos, nor Is It anything which would frighten a
poor instructor from his office. It Is an objec
tive attempt at Improving the quality of Instruc
tors by 'pointing out certain deficiencies which
prevent a teacher from giving the student the
best possible education.
The administrative officials at the University
all maintain that the real foundation of any educa
tional institute is the Quality of its faculty. If
this is true, and The Daily Nebraskan is willing
to grant that this is a vital aspect, it is urgent
that every possible step be taken to put our school
oa the best foundation.
Before the system was inaugurated on this
campus, there were complaints from many circles
that students could not" be trusted with the job of
'grading" their instructors. It was argued that
personal gripes and prejudices would enter into
the evaluations and the result would not be fair
to the instructor. The Daily Nebraskan has al
ways considered this argument nonsense. The
Nebraskan has a great deal of faith in the Uni
There are only a few real reasons why In
structors refuse to use the teacher rating blanks.
Perhaps it could be because of lack of faith in
the student. If this were the case, It would
seem strange that that instructor would even
bother teaching these students. Certainly, one
f the prime requisites of an instructor is faith
in his students.
Or, perhaps, It Is because the instructor is
afraid that he will ftnd out just what the stu
dents think of him. To The Nebraskan, It seems
necessary that the teacher know what his stu
dents think of htm. There is no universal law
. Time For Action
that Insists that students dislike Instructors'
merely because they are instructors. The teacher
should not presuppose that there will be an antt
attitude towards Mm. But if that attitude does
prevail, It Is of the best Interests of the class
that the Instructor is aware of it.
But, Just as it has faith in the students, The
Nebraskan has faith in the faculty. It is the firm
belief of the Nebraskan that the majority of in
structors, if they found that their classes did not
approve of their instructual methods, would do
everything in their power to improve the situation.
The Nebraskan's faith in the faculty goes far
ther too. We believe that the real reason that
more teacher rating blanks have not been used Is
due to a misunderstanding of the value of rating.
If every instructor could see that rating is not
vicious or silly, a more active interest would be
It Is completely up to the faculty. As the
system is set up everything is voluntary.
If a disinterested attitude is responsible for
the present situation, The Nebraskan urges every
faculty member to consider the virtues of rating.
This is one place where the University could be
improved and all it takes is a phone call to
Henry M. Cox. It is time for action. D.P,
Now that the impressions from Hollywood's
"Take Care of My Little Girl" are getting dimmer,
Hollywood has come forth with another attack.
This time it centers around fraternity hazing
under the title, "For Men Only." Despite the
name it will probably be advertised as a movie
every woman should see.
It perhaps is tied in pretty much with re
cent criticisms of fraternity and sorority systems.
This time the movie attacks one fault, rather than
the whole Greek system.
This editor is anxious to see whether national
fraternity headquarters sends out letters "request
ing" members not to attend. Many sororities re
ceived similar instructions last year. What ft ri
diculous manner to try to keep down ticket sales.
If fraternities are not guilty of such prac
tices it probably would be a good idea for mem
bers to see the movie so they would know what's
fallacious and exagerated.
This editor further wonders what the 1953 col
lege "sensational revelation" will be. After all,
we've got to keep moving this U.S. movieland.

Crazy College Youth
. . . Or Are We?
The Daily Nebraskan office receives countless file for office because they are "Faction-supported"
telephone calls during the course of each business
day. Queries over the 'phone range from "Will
there be a paper tomorrow?" to "What's going on
in parlors X, Y and 2 tonight?"
To the best of its ability the staff of The
Nebraskan answers these Questions and makes
it their job to know the answers to the multi
tude of questions that arrive. However, on oc
casion an extremely unusual question arises that
cannot be answered by The Nebraskan's per
sonnel. One recent question concerned the platforms
of the candidates for senior and junior class offi
cers. The conversation went something like 'this:
"What are the platforms of the candidates?"
I'm writing a paper and I'd like to know."
or that their particular house says "We need some
one in this activity, so why don't you file?"
It became increasingly obvious to this writer
that our University campus is extremely unique
in its political situation. The person on the tele
phone could not be convinced that no specific
platforms, or platforms characteristic of the party
so represented, were not available at once.
Could it be that our University is so devoid
of situations needing improvements so void of
constructive platforms to be carried out that
no one even the illustrious running for student
government offices need suggest progress?
Perhaps it took an absolute stranger an adult
critic unconsciously to point out that no po-
"The platforms of the candidates will be given mical Parties, standing for anything at all, exist
in Wednesday's Daily Nebraskan and a Thursday
night forum is planned for platforms and ques
tions." "Yes, but what are they running on?"
At this point, this writer explained to the
caller that the platforms are unavailable at this
time and that certain questions such as hell week,
library services, University improvements would
probably be considered by the various candidates.
This has been the usual answer to such questions.
The caller was not at all satisfied with such
answers and kept asking, "Yes, but what are
their platforms?" And . . "Are not all office
candidates in favor of improvements and such?"
It was extremely unfortunate that the staff
member could not supply the caller with the de
sired information. It was a mystery to the caller
on our campus, no platforms are immediately ob
vious for office candidates, and no interest appar
ent for constructive, progressive student govern
ment. This situation was shocking and revealing
to The Dally Nebraskan. Perhaps it might be
equally so to candidates for junior and senior
class offices and Student Council hopefuls. With
less than a week left before the May 5 elections,
this condition apparently typical of our cam
pus might be rectified. R.R.
Practice Or Pranks
A notice in Monday's Daily Nebraskan carried
the traditional news that members of Innocents
Society were to meet at a specified hour for tack
ling practice. Two very mysterious words ap
and a greater mystery to this writer why such
information was not available. The person seeking
information was obviously not aware that at this
University candidates for various offices do not
form platforms of progress on which to run for
office. They did not know that certain persons
"Students should see their advisers
why candidate platforms could not be supplied peared at the end of the news story: "Usual place."
For many years, around about Ivy Day, the
mystic 13 have announced tackling practice, at
some unusual hour, and with the "usual place"
included in the story.
Attempts have been made by various people
to find out just where this "usual place" is and
to see the 13 most outstanding young men on cam
pus going through their tackling paces. No one,
to our knowledge, has succeeded.
The Innocents do well in their Ivy Day ath-
so It goes ad infinitum dowix through the years letics; but it looks like the tackling notices are
