THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Friday, October 24, 1952
In his address before some 20 students and 50
LIncolnltes Wednesday evening, Dwight Dell men
tioned an editorial from The Dally Nebraskan. It
was an. editorial which explained why The Ne
braskan cannot endorse Dell in his campaign for
the long-term Nebraska senate position.
We said that we do not feel that Dell is quali
fied to serve as senator. Wednesday he admitted
that he is not. But he maintained that he defi
nitely was, when you compared him with his op
position. His opposition is Hugh Butler, Republican, and
Stanley Long, Democrat, Dell is an independent
who was put on the ballot by petition.
This paper has printed Dell's platform and
his answers to The Nebraskan's questions in an
exclusive Interview. In a front page news story
which we feel was purely objective It is The
Nebraskan's earnest policy to make all news
stories objective we told Dell's story. In the
same Issue, we printed an editorial giving our
Interpretation of the interview. Our Interpre
tation was and is that Dwight Dell is a very
nice fellow but not material for the United
States senate. Dell's speech Wednesday chal
lenged us to ask the same questions of the other
candidates and see If our interpretation of their
answers would not be the same.
Unfortunately, this is physically Impossible.
However, it is an excellent suggestion and a legit
imate rebuttal to our editorial. Previously, The
Nebraskan has concentrated editorial opinion on
Dell because we have had the privilege of inter
viewing him and because he felt that student in
terest was important enough that he spoke in our
Student Union. Neither of the other candidates
has made himeslf available and thereby escaped
any Nebraskan criticism of first-hand interviews
or speeches. We are not picking on Dell, we
simply have had more from him to comment on.
This brings us to a very important point: if
the paper cannot endorse Dell, who, then, does
it endorse in his place? The Daily Nebraskan
cannot honestly endorse any of the three candi
dates. First, let us tell why we cannot endorse the
present senior senator, Hugh Butler. A wealthy
grain merchant from Omaha, Butler has had one
of the most anti voting records imaginable. He
has voted against everything that even hinted
that it might be involved with the New Deal or
Fair Deal. In The Nebraskan's view, Batler's
voting has been extremely near-sighted. So far
this campaign, Butler has not been around Ne-
braska much to say anything about his political
views. This is not new with him. He didn't
show much during the primaries last spring when
he ran against Governor Peterson. Nevertheless
eral important committees. He has been using
this as his campaign theme for years. But, in our
opinion, being on (even being chairman of) "these
committees means nothing if the senator doesn't
conduct himself for the best interests cf his nation
and state. We feel that Butler has done a very
poor job of utilizing his committees for the com
mon good of Nebraskans and Americans.
We would like to hear more from Butler per
sonally. We agree with Dell' that the senator
would not satisfy us with his answers.
Long hasn't said much more that we can
comment on. But to make it more difficult,
Long does not have a voting record from which
we can compare him with other candidates,
much for Long. No campaign should be all
negative. Although The Nebraskan has not
been able to obtain literature supporting Long,
we must supose that he endorses the Demo
cratic platform. The Nebraskan definitely feels,
after close study of each platform, that the Re
publican planks make more sense in this crit
The Nebraskan must confess to its readers that
it has no candidate to offer them in this race. We
can only ask that each voter look very carefully
at what the candidates have to offer and make
his own decision. We will deal editorially with
this subject more in the future but space limita
tions make it necessary to close this discussion
Whatever you do, vote. D. P.
The super liner United States has duplicated
her record crossing to Europe by speeding back to
New York to win a second Atlantic blue ribbon.
But before we could read far enough to discover
her exact time, our eyes jumped to an adjoining
front-page column to learn that a test pilot has
apparently flown a jet-rocket plane more than
1,300 miles an hour.
inis we were miormea, Drought still more
problems, such as refrigerating the skin of the
plane to keep from roasting the pilot alive. The
triumphant United States also had her problems.
It seems the brand-new queen of the seas is
merely 53,000 tons of outdated junk because the
atomic powered ship is just around whatever nau
tical people use for a corner.
Beading further, we found comfort in a third
article on the page. The Air Force is flying two
helicopters to Europe to save freight. While the
'copters can cruise at twice the United States'
speed, the need for frequent stops will stretch
their journey to five days, a day and a half
more than the liner's time.
Remember Grades . .
Since the end of the first six
weeks usually brings with it an
established routine of classes and
activities for the underclassmen
at the beginning of the extra-cur?
ricular life for the freshmen, we
in Mortar Board would like to
speak again about the achieve
ment of balance between the cur
ricular and extra-curricular
phases of college life. In addition
to its ideals of leadership and
service, Mortar Board upholds
the ideal of scholarship. Thus we
believe that high achievement in
college lies first of all in scholas
In selecting its members, Mor
tar Board must necessarily
measure this success in terms
of grades and can consider for
membership no one who does
not have a 6.0 weighted aver
age. Nevertheless grades are not
an end in themselves. Hather
we should like to encourage you
to think of your courses in terms
of the real knowledge derived
from them. Good grades will
come to you as a result of your
integrity of purpose In pursuit
of this knowledge.
Activities are fun and worth
while; everyone should participate
in them. However, we urge you
to remember your primary tur
pose for attending college and to
consider that good scholarship is
a basis for participation in these

Eastern football fashions Often
Displeasing To Midwestern Tastes
At this point many are already on their way
to the Colorado game, but for the benefit of those
less fortunate it might be interesting to note foot
ball fashions on another campus.
It is a well known fact that colege girls in the
East dress in a manner often

At Princeton, for instance . . .
College girls down for the
weekend of the Penn-Prince-
ton game wore fine check or
flecked tweed suits under coats.
.Tweed coats with little round
brimmed hats to match were
also a popular choice. The tweed
suit with boxy, jacket given extra warmth with
a solid tone fleece or mouton facing was another
appropriate and smart selection.
Although straight camel coats with belted
backs and double-breasted white pearl buttons
are the majority choice, there was a strong new
group of glimmed-down prlnoess coats. Even
more extreme were the full-skirted, snugly
fitted black poodle versions.
Under these coats were worn wool jersey
dresses or novelty cashmere sweaters tucked Into
full tweed skirts. v
Tweed in all types of ensembles seems to be the
majority choice of well dressed football crowds.
One popular outfit seen at Princeton was the
bunchy full skirt, a loose V-neck sweater worn
over a black jersey turtle-neck dickey and match

Colors In the new tweeds are all muted
grays and blues in tiny checks or pepper and
salts, golds and browns and greens together
with the overall effect of suggested color rather
than brilliant hues.
To some, these college fashions may seem a
little extreme. But be on the lookout . , . they
are already featured in Lincoln college shops.
One of the strong points for Butler is his
seniority in the senate. This has put him on sev
Most of his campaigning has been against Butler.
He also has mentioned that Butler has stayed
away from the scene of the political battle. All
