The Little Freshman
Wednesday was a b'g day for the little fresh
man coed. The booths were pretty, all the people
running the booths were nice and her head was
whirling. She had waited six long weeks for this
much fun tt would be.
This little freshman coed had attended all the

came to meetings and talked about how they all
had to get into activities and that it was really
good deal and that it was sort of expected of them
So the very next week the little freshman
coed went to all the offices of the activities
that she'd signed Bp for. She knew some girls
that signed np for lots of activities and then
didnt report to some of the offices. But she
was anxious to meet all the "wheels" and get
in with all the kids that seemed to have so much
fun in activities.
She told everybody that she would have lots of
time to work and she took on several jobs that first
day. She began spending hours on the telephone,
hours putting three cent stamps on envelopes and
hours after midnight studying.
When her going got a little rough towards the
end of the year she began not to do some of the
work that she'd said she would. She tried to do
her best in all of her activities but succeeded in

On Mock Elections
Headlines in a recent issue of The Daily Ne
braskan told you that you would soon be polled
on your political intelligence. Other headlines
have revealed that the YM and YWCAs would
soon be holding a mock election to test student
sentiment in the general election. Last spring a
similar mock election was held just before the
In all, there seems to be a great deal of in
terest to just how students feel about the current
political situation. The Nebraskan has tried to
help erystalize political opinion with the publica
tion of the non-partisan column by Ken Ry
strom, A Student Looks Toward Politics.
The Nebraskan has heard some cynical com
plaints about this interest in how the student
feels politically. These complaints maintained that.
Also, ostensively, college students make up
the more intellectual section of our citirenry.
They are supposed to be interested in the more
worldly problems. All through history, the
great political changes have had educated men
wound up in them. Therefore, tt only seems
logical that the opinion of a university popula
tion toward the outcome of an election would be
of natural interest.
Some of those who have complained about the
mock elections have said that it is merely some
thing held to give the minor the thrill of marking
an "x." It was further argued that there is no
thrill in marking an "x" when you know that it
won't count. Here, again, the Nebraskan disagrees.
We know that the mock elections were not begun
with any idea of providing a thrill for minors.
However, they may have been started to give

a state of pure Communism has
not been realized in Russia.

practical for Russia to adopt a
communistic society at this time.
The Premier stated that it is
impossible to attain true commun

labor as not merely a means of
supporting life, but a "vital need
and public property." The neces

culture which would inspire this
attitude nave not yet taken place.

raised to a level permitting the in

overspecialiiation in a single field,
pure communism will become
practical for Russia.
The most significant part of
th article to readers outside the

small portion devoted to discus

socialism and capitalism. A new

will have a great deal to do with how well he
handles this leadership. If these mock elections
do nothing else, they win get some students to
look over candidates closer than they would if they
had no chance to mark a ballot. In many cases,
it will be the first chance students have had to'
make more than a passing interest in voting.
Even if only a small percentage of the Uni
