work with a Republican Congress should he
be elected to the presidency. And would, there

McCarthyism will undoubtedly appear as a
word in future editions of the dictionary after
a radio and TV speech Monday night by Sen. Jo
seph McCarthy, Republican candidate for re-election
to the Senate from Wisconsin.
McCarthyism has come to represent the tactics
used by the illustratious Senator in his attempts to
rid the top-level of our government of Commu
nists or those whose activities might be associated every human feeling of fear, insecurity and hat

was indeed gratifying because the
ultimate decision to have no of
ficial migration this year came as
a result of tireless investigation
and lengthy discussions with fac
ulty, administration, students, and
even with your editor. Since it is
ihe sole ambition of the Student
Council to carry out the needs and
desires of the students to the best
advantage for all, the migration
proved a constant source of worry
I believe you were and are
aware of the many complicat

that concerned migration this
year, but still you stated with
"hindsight" that the Council
reached the wrong decision. You
stated that "a sanctioned migra

a lot of others who could not

there have been 200 such peo

passenger requirements in view
of the fact that an enterprising
student could not even get
enough interested people to half
fill one bus for the trip?

Fear is the main weapon of Senator McCarthy's
war of nerves. Of course, conscientious Americans
are vitally concerned with ridding their govern-
porary bleachers to facilitate some 450 extra Ne
braskans. Seats at the far end of the goal post
sold for S3. 50 and were jammed with the specta
tors. Adding the additional bleachers was a friend
ly gesture toward the Cornhuskers who were
demanding the extra seats. The high price of

Thing Found On Campus
A Matter Of Life Or Death
University men who haven't taken the college men who went to school on their own saved the
deferment draft test have until Nov. 1 to register government a lot of GI Bill expense.
But it definitely defeats our argument if stu
dents who are not here to study are allowed
to stay out of military service. That is the pur
pose of the deferment tests. Actually, they are
just general intelligence tests designed to find
which of the students have the mental capacity
to help their country with an education. These
tests are not the only chance a student has for
deferment, a grade average high enough to im
press the draft board is also considered.
However, it must never be understood that the
test or a high average automatically insure that a
man will not have to go straight to the armed
with their local boards. This deferment test may
well be a matter of life or death.
