AN AMUSING GAMP
semmess uv v
A quick survey of reaction to
the "Yardstick of Political
Philosophy" which appeared in
Tuesday's DAILY NEBRASKAN
indicates that students and fac
ulty alike are wary of so-called
polls and opinion measuring
William Hice, assistant pro
fessor of journalism, said, "my
criticism of all such "yardsticks"
so commonly used by news
papers and magazines is that
too many are oversimplified and
"Although I do think that any
person could use such a device
to suil his own purposes, in this
particular instance I have
enough belief in Mr. Pope's (au
thor of yardstick) integrity to
know that such a factor was not
involved," Hice stated.
George Babilot, instructor of
economics, said that he felt such
a device has a "very limited
value as an indicator of political
Continuing he said, "this is an
attempt to put into isolated
compartments political views
which are actually incapable of
being sharply differentiated.
The numerical average obtained
does not reflect a clear view of
whether a person is liberal, re
actionary, or what-have-you,
because each category must be
considered by itself. The cate
gories do not lend themselves to

Students, alums and interested
ndividuals will pay tribute to the
founder of home economics at the
annual Ellen Richards dinner
Thursday night. This dinner cli
maxes a day of demonstrations,
tours and discussions about the
home economics department.
We of the Ag campus should
congratulate the members of the
judging teams and their coaches
for the fine representation they
gave the University at the judg
ing contests in Kansas City. In
the wool judging contest the team
won all but two of the ribbons
and trophies present for the con
test. Other teams which made a
good showing both individually
and in team competition were the
meats and senior livestock judg
ing teams. Even though the mem
bers receive college credit for
participating on these teams, this
doesn't cover the amount of Sat-j
urday afternoons and weekday
evenings they spend in learning
the finer points of judging.
While we are back-patting we
might add the Ag Union to the
list of good organizations. They
have instilled rood relationship
between the students and pro
fessors with their "Potluck with
Profs." The last of the first six
series was presented last Sun
day night but Mrs. Peters, Ag
Union director, said that the
second series would be started
some time late in November.
Other Union activities which
will take up where the dinners
left off are the dancing lessons,
Saturday evening shows and the
Oh, yes, before I forget, the All
University Fund will get financial
assistance from Aggie's when the
boy shells out for the pretty box
and lass at the Box Social Nov. 4.
Even though this is election day,
yours truly predicts a good return
for the effort of the AUF organl
The grapevine has revealed
that the Ag Builders and Coun
tryman's office will undergo a
facelifting in the near future.
Here's hoping, because any im
provement would surely be no
ticed by the students of the col
lege. While we are on the sub
ject of the Ag Builders it looks
like the organization is up and
coming by the attendance at the
mass meeting Wednesday night.
Even though no activities are
planned for the campus on Hallo
ween night, I will predict that the
traditional shack will appear on
the steps of Love Hall and the
sidewalks and windows at the
AGR house and Farm House will
receive their yearly bath of molasses.
