Pride And Prejudice
A few pertinent words by Thomas Jefferson
written 150 years ago and recently reprinted by
Colorado University's Silver and Gold, student
paper, have been noticed by The Daily Nebraskan
and are here quoted as a prelude to something we
feel should be cleared up.
"In every country where man is free to think
and to speak, differences of opinion will arise
from differences of perception, and the Imper
fection of reason; but these differences when
permitted, as In this happy country, to purify
themselves by free discussion, are but passing
cloud overspreading our land transiently, and
leaving our horizon more bright and serene."
In the editorial columns of The Daily Nebras
kan where the staff members are free to think and
to speak free from administrative or faculty cen
sorship or strong suggestion we think this is true.
On the editorial page of he Daily Nebraskan
differences of opinion will arise from differences
of perception. This, also, holds true. Every man
is an Individual, and, as such, has his own Indi
vidual, differing Ideas and opinions.
Through our editorial comment there is im
perfection of reason. We do not always say we
are right or we are perfect. Our reasoning is to
support our opinion, on occasion. Often reason
shows our opinion to be wrong. This we admit.
These differences when permitted to purify
themselves by free discussion in the editorial
columns of The Daily Nebraskan this is what we
strive for. As for leaving our horizon more bright
and serene, we are sure that despite criticism, ob
jection or imperfect reasoning we are doing the
Thomas Jefferson's words are so true in this
world today of conflicting idealogies and editor
ial hassels, that we want the readers of The
Daily Nebraskan to understand their significance.
The Nebraskan staff is not fundamentally tak
ing an editorial stand for or against any person or
organization before examining the facts. We can
not announce that we will do thus and so. When
we see an issue coming up or notice a subject that
lends itself to editorial comment, we shall take
We do not advocate taking the middle-of-the-road
course on editorial subjects. Neither do we
Intend to make our decisions before complete
examination of the facts. The Nebraskan shall
not dodge issues and shall not create them.
The editorial page is also the place for not
only staff opinion but for the views of the entire
University body. We stated at the beginning of
this semester, that the greatest possible attention
should be paid to letters from our readers. Every
single letter received in this office this year has
been published either singly or appended by an
The authors of letters to The Nebraskan are
asked only to follow the canons of good taste and
to obey the laws of libel and slander as does each
and every editorial writer of this paper.
The editorial page is our pride and perhaps re
flects our prejudice. The criticism of same un
doubtedly is the expression of our readers pride
To our readers, we are trying to bring home
the fact that the free expression of ideas is the
basic tenet of the editorial page. We shall dis

shall express our Ideas as we want our readers
to express theirs. R. R.
Where Were They?
Three pictures on page 1 of today's Daily Ne
braskan show the interior decorations of three
popular coffee shops on this campus between 10
and 11 o'clock Wednesday morning. Under normal
class-day circumstances, nothing would be unusual
'about these pictures of three coffee shops bulging
As a matter of fact, there is not too much of
the unusual about the subject of these pictures.
Quite a few students take a coffee hour when-
ever their class, study and activity schedules
permit. What makes -these pictures different is
the fact that they were taken.
The students in the pictures, at first, did not
"realize why the cameraman chose them for the
subject of his labors. Then a few guilty con
sciences went to work and surprised faces and low
mutterings took the place of posing.
-At 10 o'clock Wednesday morning, Chancellor
taken a healthy first in the convocation story.
Our Chancellor spoke to us about our Uni
versity. And where were those persons that
were the main subject of the Chancellor's re
marks? Why, it was coffee time. R. R.
"Don't count Truman out," you hear the politi
cal observers say. "He won the '48 election single
handed and he can do it in 1952. His "give-'em-hell"
formula worked against Governor Dewey,
and he's out stumping again presenting the
"facts" in defense of his Administration and in ex
posure of his Republican opponents.
No one seems to know exactly how effective
the Master Politician has been during his current
tour. Senator Kefau : has said that he thought
the "President's whistle-stop campaign has had a
"negative effect" for Gov. Stevenson. Editorial

University." AH Classes Were dismissed. Out'of afr -caried him "The Other McCarthy." New ReDub-
enrollmentof approximately 6,900 students, an
estimated 1,500 persons attended the convocation.
A slight bit of figuring shows that a little more
than one-fourth of the student body, and many of
the audience were faculty members, were interested
in what the Chancellor had to say.
The students shown in these three front page
pictures are only a representative group of that
majority of University members who find it be
neath their collegiate dignity to attend a convo
cation. Homecoming may be a great tradition
on our campus but greater than even that is the
"Convocation? Good, let's go coffee" attitude.
University instructors dismiss their classes at
the bidding of the administration for these convo
cations that are deemed worthy of all-student con
vocation. Many fine speakers one of the finest
of whom is our Chancellor are brought to the
University to lend whatever they may to the wel
fare of the students.
It's an age-old editorial subject this non
attendance at convocations. Student editors the
country over have been lambasting their readers
for many years about their apathy to take ad
vantage of University-sponsored functions.
But Wednesday's performance by the majority
of this University's student body has, in our minds,
lie, since February, has doubted his ability to "re
create sympathy for the underdog, the resentments
against the 80th Congress, the admiration for a
scrapper and the sense of complacency over good
times that together set off the miracle of Nov. 7,
But the President's crowds are larger than in
1948. His speeches, even Time has admitted, are
better written and better delivered. The crowds,
the magazine said, "(understond) every word he
(says) and (seem) to accept it as truth."
Whether he is winning the votes the Democrats
want is not known. But the President is doing
something Governor Stevenson could never do. He
is lambasting General Eisenhower and the men
who support him and whom he supports he is
attacking them from every side and from every
position. He has proved effective enough to cause
the formation of a Republican "Truth Squad," con
sisting of Senators Ferguson (Mich.), Hickenlooper
(Iowa) and Case (So. Dak.), which has followed
Mr. Truman along his whistle-stop route. The
countermove is the GOP's rebuttal to the cam
paign aimed at cutting down Ike.
Whether the President's campaign can again
tilt the electoral scales remains to be seen. Right
now, however, his listeners are more concerned
with hollering, "Give 'em hell, Harry!"
He is. K. R.

Question on the campus seems
to be Homecoming or Polio

rapidly trying to squelch further
self-sacrificeing donations from
the Homecoming fund to the Polio
It was a Krandoise gesture, do
nating the homecoming fund thus.
However, isn't this what one might
call ( and I quote) "robbing Peter
to pay Paul?" Fifty dollars (in
some cases less) from each of the
organized houses is put into a
Homecoming fund. Some of these
houses have graceiously donated
their Homecoming money to the
If the various organizations wish
to contribute to the polio fund,
why must they do it in this man
ner? The amount donated was ap
proximately $50. If there are 50
members in each particular house
that would sill only be one dollar
a piece. If there are more than 50,
it would be even less. 'I've had
math and know about such things)
$50, especially when pro-rated, is
a very small sum.
If the organised houses have
such big hearts as it is believed,
they will not only donate $50 to
polio, but they will do it from
their pockets and not from a
fund budgeted to help the Uni
versity. Homecoming is not only
tradition, it is more. It is a ready
source of revenue for the Uni
versity and is component parts.
The community as a whole, is, in
a financial sense, aided by
homecoming. Take the inno-
cents society, they receive $5
from each decoration.
This helps them carry on their
many functions throughout the
year. What football game does
everyone want to be sure to at
tend? Homecoming, of course.

in turn helps fill the coffers of the

Since June 25, 1950
This mess in Korea broke out June 25, 1950
when a force of North Korean soldiers charged
across the 38th parallel in a surprise attack on a
tiny South Korean army. That is the -way lots of
wars start with surprise attacks. And, as is al
ways true with wars, the Implications of the in
itial attack are slow to die down.
The history books will say that, as soon as
word reached this country, there were many
high-level conferences and the decision was
made for naval forces to form a blockade on the
Formosan coast and ships were sent into Korean
Then, the United Nations were contacted and
advised of our decision. An immediate meeting
of the UN gave official approval of the decision
and assurance that other nations would join us
under the flag of the United Nations. Luckily, this
was possible because the Russian delegation was
absent from all UN meetings at this time because
of anger over another problem. After this meet
ing, this was the situation: United Nations troops
were fighting North Korean Communist troops in
the central section of that peninsular hotbox.
Basically, that is the same situation that confronts

Homecoming serves a dual
role. Not only does it typify the
ivy covered walls; not only does
it bring much happiness to the
people attending, enjoying the
sights or reminiscing about the
past; not only does it bring the
satisfaction of working together

The editorial "America's Youth"
in Oct. 8 issue of The Dailey Ne
braskan was irritating to say the
least. At this stage of the cam
paign how can you say that Taft's
backers are "supporting the uen
eral's policies?" Please inform us:
1. What are the General's poli
cies? 2. Who today in the 'Republican
ranks is supporting what was an
original Eisenhower policy?
I prefer to say that Eisenhower
has been a "pretty good fellow"
to get along within his chosen
group. He adjusts readily and,
we might add, is. well under con
trol. He is a submissive "captive."
Also, why is it necessary for you
to apologize editorially for your
political leanings? I am greatly
