What Do You Mean, So Long?
A former football player was asked, In a kid
ding way, if he were the boy who was out of action
because of a shoulder separation in Saturday's
fame. He said, "No, that guy was killed by
Kansas State and buried by the sports writers."
And that is exactly our attitude to the "So
long, Champ" feeling which has permeated
every column and story written about a swell
my, Bob Reynolds. Although he has to' carry
his left arm in an awkward support. Reynolds
ia still very much alive. The Daily Nebraskan
object to the obituary atmosphere which Is
taken on when the Reynolds mishap is discussed.
Bob really loves baseball best and it has been
indicated by the experts that he has passed up a
lucrative career by staying at the University and
playing football. In The Nebraskan's view, this
is entirely true except that we do not think that
Bob missed out on a baseball career just to romp
through opponents' secondaries. He did not come
to school with a big blow up; during his freshman
year, he was a relatively unknown player. If Bob
Reynolds came to the University for football glory
he certainly had no indication that he would get
it until that sunny afternoon in 1950 when he
baffled a visiting Indiana team.
Since that afternoon, Bob Reynolds has been
bafflinr teams on fall afternoons regularly.
During his sophomore year he made most All-
American teams and was chosen the riayer of
the Year. Last year a series of injuries one to
his right shoulder similar to the one he has now
on Ms left side kept him out of championship
form until the last came of the season, i And
this year, the Grand Island flash showed every
thing needed to assure another All-American
selection except a full season.
It is because of the record Bob Reynolds has
piled up during these three seasons that everyone
is crying now that he is lost for the gridiron. It
is also because Bob Reynolds is an awfully swell
guy and carried the responsibility of national pub
licity well. ;
The Nebraskan wishes to emphasize that Bob
Reynolds the athlete or the man is not dead.
He should not be mourned. He still has possi
bilities for tremendous professional and col
legiate careers in baseball and could possibly go
out for basketball this winter. He is still walk
ing around with his friendly smile. The Ne
braskan wishes to congratulate rather than
mourn Reynolds. He has served his University
in a way that no other man has ever been able
to do. For this, he should be thanked.
The Nebraskan knows that it is speaking for
the school and the state as a whole when it says,
"Bob, we appreciate what you have done, and get
well quick." D. P.

Dear Editor,
Thanks a lot for using the Bob
Reynolds piece, although the
credit all goes to Bob. It s a cinch
to write about a guy like him.
Here's something you might
get together with me on: How
about getting behind a Bob
Reynolds' day, to be held during

one last big hand and. heaven
knows, the crowd wants to give
it to him.
Get the card section, the band

have Bob say a few words I've
written to Potsy about this and
further action by you would help.
Best and thanks again,

A strict enforcement of the no-drinking rule
has begun on campus this year motivated, as we
see it, by state law against persons under 21

The majority of the student body is not 21

it would seem that a state law is inevitably to be
violated sometime during the evening. And the
It appears to The Nebraskan that the only
solution lies in the organized houses recognizing
the position of the University, realizing that
they, too, must abide by state law, and taking
it upon themselves to abide by the University's
decision until such time as the Nebraska legis
lature is moved to lower the drinking age-limit
or to make provisional amendments in view of
the University's problem.

Two On The Aisle 1 Student Look Toward Politics
To The Daily Nebraskan, the Student Council
made a mistake Wednesday afternoon.
It was not a large mistake and a good many
people believe that it wasn't a mistake. It was
brought up in the regular Council proceedings
that negotiations with Dean of Student Affairs
Phillip Colbert in regard to parking fines had
come to the point that the Council's opinion was
needed. Dean Colbert told a Council representa
tive that he could not go ahead and try to put
through a parking fine system without approval
of the student legislative body.
So, this representative read to the Council
a pair of suggestions and asked that they be
' submitted to Colbert with Council approval.
These suggestions Included the fact that nominal
fines would be levied to parking violators with
more than two University tickets. If the fine
was not paid within a week, the suggestion con
'" tinned, the violator would be rusticated (the
same punishment given habitual violators now).
The other suggestion said that the money col-
Campaign Literature
The presidential campaign is running full
steam ahead. Nearly every printed and spoken
word these days is the brain-child of a politician
or a politician's helper. Irrevelant issues are
being spotlighted in the campaign arena and ap
peals to the voting public made on the basis of
anything but intelligence.
To date, most of the campaign attack has '
' concerned itself with mud-slinging, character
assasinatlon and other such unpleasant activities.
The Nebraska Republican State Central Commit
tee has, perhaps unwittingly, introduced an ele
ment of sweetness and light into this presiden
tial battle.
From Republican headquarters, Room 220,
-Cornhusker Hotel, Lincoln, Neb., has come a small,
printed card that, at first glance, has nothing to
do with politics except for its sponsors.
Further examination, however, might reveal
the depths of political significance on the card.
A basic tenet for the views advanced in the liter--ature
is seen at the top of the card with directions
for us.
Following this are three variations of use for
the basic tenet thus set forth. The variations un-
doubtedly make the political fodder more tenabje
to various elements of the party.
This certain piece of campaign literature will
probably never repose on the bulletin boards of
ward headquarters. It seems highly impossible
" that it will bringr forth many more Republican
votes at the polls.
' , In fact, this latest piece of propaganda, might
T Cry well keep the nation's female voters in their
titchens on election day instead of at the polls.
It ia none other than a recipe for "Mother Eisen
hower's 0001066." R. R-
lected would be placed in a scholarship fund
sponsored by the University Student CounciL
It was moved, seconded and passed that these
suggestions be submitted to Dean Colbert.
Factually, this is what happened. The Ne
braskan does not wish argue now whether or
not this idea is legal or not. What we do wish to
say is that it looks to us like there is a very defi
nite possibility that this suggestion will not be
found legal. If we are right, it will mean that a
lengthy Council discussion will have been for
naught. Where we feel that the mistake was made
was in the failure to see whether the suggestions
were legal before they were submittd.
It seems like the Council put the cart before X
the horse by stamping approval on something that
might be proved illegal. All that would have
needed to have been done, was a check with
legal authorities before the suggestions were
brought into the public spotlight. The Univer
sity has not only lawyers but a Law College
where this could have been done. Any time
fines are mentioned, a very delicate and im
portant subject has been brought up a subject
that has the possibility of touching every student
driving an automobile on this campus. It looks
like this fining idea will stir up a lot of con
troversy. We feel that no controversy should
have been allowed to appear until the legal
basis had been established.
Certainly, the author of the plan had no in
tention of hurting the students; conversely, he
thought he would be doing them a service. We
are not arguing with his sinceriiy. The' Nebras
kan believes that the plan may be illegal because
it oflers no appeal to the violator. Common law
justice has long maintained that the charges of the
police should be subject to the review of a neutral
observer. XIo provision is made here.
Again, the mistake is not large and final, but
it is there and maybe a controversy will arise that
needn't be. D. P.

Samuel Gompers, founder of the American
Federation of Labor, once said, '"There is no such
thing as a labor bloc vote'."
The Democratic and Republican parties do not
seem to concur with this opinion, for both are
trying for the vote of the common man "en
masse." For the Democrats, it is a problem of re
taining the same votes that have helped to swing
the election their way for twenty years. The Re
publicans, however, are using a different line of
strategy. Their strategy now calls for Eisenhow
er's popular appeal swinging enough labor votes
so that this 'bloc' will not be able to influence the
outcome of the election.
The main issue concerning labor is, "What are
we to do about the Taft-Hartley Act?" The
Democrats, in their platform, call for repeal of
the present law. The Republicans advocate
amending the law.
c n.:s.
Gov. Adiai Stevenson, in a speech given in
Detroit on Labor Day, set down five general prin-
j ciples for a new labor-relations law. As he said,
Labor and management can agree on these prin
ciples too, if they will throw their guns on the
He continued to present his five-fold plan,
"Point No. 1 is that the law must accept labor
unions, like employer corporations, as the respon
sible 'representatives of their members' interest
Point No. 2 is the other side of Point No. 1. Ii
labor unions are to be accepted as the full repre
sentatives and guardians of employee interests ia
the collective bargaining process, then labor unions
must conform to standards of fair conduct and
equal protection in the exercise of their steward
ship." Point three of Stevenson's suggestions, " is that
fr - ""igrTt i
1 rFil vf-v- :
a new federal labor law must outlaw unfair bar
gaining practices by companies or unions."
"Point number 4 is rejection of the labor in
junction." "
The Governor's fifth and last point "is that
new methods must be found for settling national
emergency disputes."
Republican Reply
Immediate reply came from the Republican
side cf the fence. Robert N. Denham, former
Seneral Counsel of the National Labor Relations
Board said in a press statement, "These proposals
ignore our national work force of 62 million
people, of whom less than 16 million are union
members. They are addressed to the advancement
of the unions. They ignore the protection the law
accords each of these 62 million people against the
abuses of union officers and union rule and their
right to determine for themselves whether they
will join or refrain from joining a union. These
proposals would withdraw all such rights and pro
tection and try to force 46 million into industrial
serfdom. They would restore the "closed shop"
as the first medium for withdrawing this protec
tion and freedom of croice. They would condone
the picket-line violence and abuses that have re
ceived the nod from the NLRB in its Wagner Act
decisions. All they would do would be to aggra
vate the conditions Congress was seeking to cor
rect." The Republican Party still states that the Taft
Hartley Act protects the workers as well as the
employer. They also condemn sekure of striking
plants and industries, a plan offered earlier by
Governor Stevenson.
Both sides have offered new proposals, but, in
all probability, there will be many points carried
over from the Taft-Hartley Act no matter which
plan of revision is used.
