It's About Time
For the first time that this editor can remem
her, the All-University Party, commonly called
the taction, is making an attempt to bring us
political activities out into the open. This Tarty,
composed I representatives of University fraterni
ties, has decided to give $50 from its treasury to
the Junior-Senior class board officers and coun
cil members.
The letter accompanying; this donation, to be
formally presented to the class board Tuesday,
,, suggests that the money be used to purchase
-scholarship cups which the class officers de
oided Vould be presented each year on Ivy Day
to the senior man and woman with the highest
-weighted average.
,The All-University Party had Its birth In the
banding together of Greek students against Inde
pendent students. For such, it drew the wrath of
administrative officials and consequently took its
activities into closed session.
....And now. It would seem that the faction nas

relled, An organization act up purely to keep
the opposition out of officeand not to have
any strong, worthwhile objective of Its own
seems Inherently wrong ta us.
However, with this move to bring their politi
cal party into the student-public eye, by donating
part of their oft-questioned Treasury to the ad
vancement of the class boards, The faction appears
to be changing part of the basic philosophy of their
It is to be taken for granted that the fac

istration still would not condone a Greek vs. In
dependent organisation. And, we assume, that
this action might possibly be taken as a whim
not an indication of honest endeavor.
The Daily Nebraskan is in unanimous agree

and ill-advised pieces in my life,
but never anything as far off base
as that editorial called, "What Do
You Mean, So Long?"
About all I could see was a bag
of sour grapes on this author not
writing the tribute to Reynolds.
As I read the tribute, it seemed
to me that it was a fine piece on
the fellow's character at the
wind-up of a career in football
eligibility. There was nothing
there about him dying of or such
as your editorial implied.
To show the writer's ignorance,
he said Reynolds was not known
when he first came to Nebraska.
He was probably the most famous
athlete in Nebraska high school
history and drew bids from S9
colleges, as I remember.
If two shoulder separations
wouldn't hinder a guy's baseball
career, I hardly know what could
be worse, being a baseball player
of sorts myself.
Also, how inconsistent can you
get? On the sports page you give
the piece tribute as being "one
of the great sports writings"
(which it was). Then you pan it
on the editorial.
Why not eat those sour grapes?
We dont want them.
From the point of view of Ste
venson's high-level, intellectual
campaign, it would seem that he
would have a good deal of appeal
for the college student. It seems
to me that Stevenson's appeal is
considerable, as shown by the re
sult of the YM-YW poll. A little
better than one-third of the stu
dents polled indicated that they
favored Stevenson. Assuming that
this is a measure of the political
atmosphere of the campus as a
whole, about 2,500 students (one
third of 6,900) prefer Stevenson.
This fact is rather remarkable
when one considers that Nebraska
is predominantly Republican,
Through a concentrated effort
on the part of these people, an
expression of their views would
be forceful. It seems to me that
such an expression could have no
little influence in major political
circles. Inasmuch as their political
activities and experiences in col
lege will determine, to some ex
tent, their political aetiities in
the future, it is necessary that this
complacency be replaced with a
real interest in politics. It has
been announced that a Students
for Stevenson movement is being
offered to them for such a pur
pose. Why not get on the band
wagon?" RAY RICE

JQa.Jhe day the foregoing story of life in Korea
appealed in the late August papers, the Democra
tic candidate for president made a speech in Spring
tlelfi, ' It was a happy speech, light in touch, hu
morous, deft to its; sallies at the opposition.

Korea got one paragraph in the Democratic
platform; 54 word's out of nearly 10,000 in that
document This is the paragrph:
sibility. But what to do next and from tnen on.'
There must be a solution.
Stevenson hasn't offered one, yet! Eisenhower
hasn't offered one either. Politicians may advise
both men to hide the Korean question under the
rug, but we can be sure that neither man can keep
it out of his heart.
Too many of us do keep Korea out of our
minds and hearts unless we happen to be mem
bers of a family with a boy in the service, or about
to be called. ,
Up to now, Korea is the forgotten issue of the
campaign. It is up to the Republican party to
make it so, because the Democrats would like to
have us forget it.
If it takes a new approach to bring the Ko
rean War to a conclusion, the public knows from
which side it is more likely to come. S.G.

. Students and faculty may feel a bit flattered
by the recent visit of US Secretary of Commerce
Charles Sawyer to the University campus. Speak
ing at the Union to Economic, a College of Busi
ness Administration organization, the Secretary des
cribed the work of his department voiced the re
action of businessmen he is contacting on his cur
rent trip, and discussed briefly the plans of his
.department to aid business when defense ex
penditures taper off.
In Nebraska to discuss business problems,
with Lincoln and Omaha businessmen, Secre
tary Sawyer took this time to visit the campus
and feel the pulse of local professors and stu
ents of business administration and economics.
Information gathered from talks with business
men and women In bis jaunt across the nation
. will be used in a study which will be published
by the Department of Commerce about January
1, 1953.
A lawyer by profession, American Ambassador
to Belgium and Minister to Luxembourg from 1944
to 1946, and a former owner of 16 newspapers in
bis native state of Ohio, the Secretary proved to he
a very interesting and entertaining speaker. He
expressed the opinion that the best way for the
jovernment to aid business was to leave it alone.
He Indicated strong disapproval of the Federal
excess-profits tax and contended that the tax car
ried with it a vote-getting appeal because it en
abled "certain office-seekers" to capitalize on the
promise to "soak-the-rich." On the other hand,
he said, It was an unfair tax on businessmen
which was inflationary and robbed them of the
incentive to make big profits. Business sentiment,
he felt, strongly favored a reduction of govern
mental expenditures rather than an increase in

Among other interesting utterances of the
Secretary was the one criticizing the present or

eral payrolls regardless of their abilities and
made it difficult to reward good work. Amend
