On The Mall
An editorial in Monday's issue of The Daily
" Nebraskan explained the action taken Wednesday
when the Student Council tabled a motion to turn
the mall in front of the Coliseum into a concrete
parking lot. This editorial also indicated some of
the serious problems that the Council parking com
mittee would face when it started working on this
We listed as the three primary problems: the
' mall area is used by military students as a prac
tice drill field, engineering students use it for lab
work in surveying and the concrete lot the mo
" tion calls for would cost around $1 per square
It must be granted that the conversion of the
mall into parking area would furnish this cam
pus with ample parking space. Beyond this, it
would be valuable during the football and basket-
ball seasons to take care of game traffic. This
; campus could definitely use more parking areas;
The Nebraskan has urged this editorially for sev
eral years. However, there just isn't any space
Despite this shortage of space more ac
curately, because of it the mall could not be
used as a parking lot. We would ' like to be
able to suggest an alternative but we cannot.
We feel that we must argue against converting
the mall because of the problems listed above.
These problems are very real as interviews with
the University personnel involved have proved.
The Nebraskan contacted Maj. John L. Tanner,
assistant professor of military science and tactics,
who said that his department would have no place
to go if they were removed from the mall. The
mall is right in front of the building and is es
pecially convenient for lab work. It does present
problems because a little rain makes the grass
less places too muddy for marching, but it defin
itely is the best place the military department
including Army, Navy and Air Force has to drill.
One of the arguments for making the mall into
a parking lot is that this action would benefit'
so many students. However, it seems to The Ne
braskan that a great many more students would
be benefited by having the drill field remain where
it is. Every freshman and sophomore student is
required to take some form of ROTC and basic
ROTC requires a great deal of drilling. A new
parking lot would benefit only a small majority
of students most of these would be Lincoln stu
dents who always have the alternative of the bus
lines. Another of the proolems listed above in
volved the civil engineering classes who take
surveying labs on the mall G. C. Ernst, civil
engineering professor in charge of the survey
ing courses told The Nebraskan about the same
thing that the military department did: "We are
not entirely satisfied with the mall, but is ab
solutely the only place we have left." Ernst
Jazz And Kant
The mental versus the popular appeal of en
tertainment will be put to test Wednesday night
and it's this writer's bet that the cultural appeal
' whatever it might be of Kenton, Cole and Sarah
rr Vaughn will come out much better than that of
The Coliseum will undoubtedly be packed
with thousands of fans of the modern classics
performed and made famops by Stan Kenton's
approach to the musical world, Nat King Cole's
piano and vocal efforts and Sarah Vaughn's sul
try singing activities.
Beginning one-half an hour earlier, at the Un
.. ion, will be the first meeting of the philosophy
club, at which Dr. W. H. Werkmeister, chairman
of the philosophy department, will speak on "Cat
Zl egorical Imperatives of Immanuel Kant." To this
writer's meager philosophy knowledge, Kant's
- theories come under the title of ethical ideal-
- The Nebraskan is in no position to advocate
attendance for Cole, Kenton and Vaughn or Kant.

Naval Air Sta-
said that if the University would give him a
small section of land near the engineering
buildings where his students could do their lab
work, he would not give any argument to plans
for converting the mall.
If one were to assume that the motion were to
go through, where would these two groups hold
their labs? The first place that comes to most
minds is the wide expanse to the north of the
Coliseum now used as an athletic practice field.
The Nebraskan contacted George "Potsy" Clark,
director of Husker athletics, who said that the
practice field is used almost constantly during
the warm seasons. Although he sympathized with
the need for more parking space, he did not see
how the athletic field could be used for marching
Clark also said that in 1948 he offered to con
struct concrete tennis courts on the mall which
could be used either for tennis or parking. His
plan was for half tennis and half parking in the
afternoons and all tennis on the weekends. How
ever, the Board of Regents vetoed the idea.
This leaves the first two problems unsolved
because The Nebraskan knows of no other prac
tical place for these two organizations to con
duct their activities.
The problem of cost seems insoluble now,
too. Authorities at the Division of Buildings
and Grounds estimated that it would cost slightly
more than $1 per square foot to surface the lot
with concrete. However, the Council parking
committee is exploiting the possibilities of as
phalt, crushed rock, gravel, etc.
In fact, the committee is doing an excellent job
of research and might come up with suggestions
that solve the whole thing. The Nebrsskan hopes
so. We can only say that from our investigation,
the plan doesn't seem practical. D.P.
To Our Readers
In past days, The Daily Nebraskan. and all of
its news staff, has been seriously charged with
letting its political conviction guide its news de
cisions in regard to Democrat and Republican stor
ies. In fact, some Democrats are so upset about
what they consider unfair news judgement, that
they plan to take their "evidence" to a high
University official in hopes of getting "some
modification of Nebraskan policy
The members of the Nebraskan staff are jour
nalists and, as such, are quite aware of the worthy
tradition in their profession of keeping news col
umns free of editorial conviction or bias. In this
election year, a concentrated attempt to be fair
and impartial in our news judgement has been ex
erted. We have no fear of anything which the
Democrats may care to accuse us of. We would
like to have our readers answer the fallacious
charge that Nebraskan news columns are par
tial. We shall answer the Democrats in due
course. This writer thinks the opinions of our
readers would answer all such charges, also. R.R

Student Predicts Outcome Of Nov. 4 Election
By DICK HANSEN
- (Editor's Note: Dick Hansen's
predictions on the electoral vote
of the states appears above this
column on the right side of the
It is safe to predict the follow
ing results of the 1952 election:
1. On Nov. 4 the American
people will elect a new presi
dent. 2. No matter who is elected,
ft is safe to predict that, due to
the situation of the country the
banks will be closed eight
months after the election . . .
(the banks are always closed on
the Fourth of July.)
It would be absurd for anyone
to go any further with predic
tions. It was easy for me to pre
dict President Truman's retire
ment, for in that instance I had
only to consider the President's
own outlook, background, etc., but
in the election there are probably
50 million voters to consider and
my crystal ball was slightly
strained with such a job of mass
Nevertheless, I am willing to
go out on a limb to the extent
of listing states which seem
likely to go one way or the
other. This estimate differs in
some respects from those of

and World Report and Time
magazines for I do not feel that

Carolina, Louisiana and Texas

hand, cannot see New York

Roosevelt in 1944 voting for

in the 1948 election, yet on the

it is impossible to predict how

as I see it, are California and
Illinois. Illinois has gone Demo
cratic since 1932 and it is also the
home state of Governor Steven

its Kennelly machine, large labor
vote and considerable Catholic
Considering these factors and
the fact thai Stevenson had
such terifiic crowd (22,500)
when he spoke in Chicago it
looks like Illinois will go for
The big puzzle is California: It
also has gone Democratic in the
last five elections, rejecting its
favorite son, Warren, in 1948. The
Governor is much more popular
than Senator Nixson, but the can
didacy of the General may out
weigh Nixon's controversial following.
Estes Kefauver has been cam
paigning strenuously in California
on behalf of the Democratic
ticket. He is immensely popular
there and could be a-big factor in
swinging tne state.
