NU At UN
Approximately 30 University students will board
a bus at 2 p.m. next Tuesday and begin a trip
which will take them into the chambers of the
first reasonably successful organization of world
government. For these students, its is a chance of
They will attend a YM-YWCA sponsored
United Nations seminar at the UNi world head
quarters In New York City. The Y's have
planned a program complete with Interviews
with foreign delations, International student
discussions, an International student party and
guided tours of New York. The sponsors have
also arranged for Inexpensive lodging olose to
the activities. At the University, Sam Gibson,
executive secretary of the campus YMCA, and
Janice Osburn, director of the YWCA, have out
done themselves In making- preparations for a
The Nebraskan wishes to congratulate the per
sons responsible both in Lincoln and New York
for making this trip available. Furthermore,
we wish to point to the response that Nebraska
students at the University of Nebraska, Nebraska
Wesleyan University and Doane College have
shown. When the Nebraska sponsors first planned
the event, they were hoping that they could get a
carload. Then, It looked as If it might be possible
to charter a bus; but bus companies required a
minimum of 25 passengers. Applications kept
pouring in and now it seems quite possible that 35
students will make the trip.
tTo The Nebraskan, this Interest In world af
fairs is highly significant. Nebraska has Ions:
had the label and It certainly has earned it
of being- ultra-conservative. We have elected
such senators as Hugh Butler and the late Ken
neth Wherry. The midlands are considered the
heartbed of Isolationism. Yet, more than 30 very
busy college students are Interested enough In
world affairs that they will drop their books and
their other activities to attend a United Na
tions seminar in mid-semester. Actually, It Isn't
Just a matter of dropping- the things that often
get tiresome anyway, the matter of cash Is very
important. Many of the students- attending the
seminar will have to sacrifice a great deal to be
able to afford the trip.
The purpose of this editorial Is not to work up
sympathy for the poor students who are sacri
ficing to make the trip they are to be envied
rather than given sympathy. The Nebraskan
rather, is trying to point out that maybe the iso
lationist midlands are in the process of corning
out of their cave. Maybe this younger feneration
has opened its eyes to the fact that the only way
to live with our modern technology is to broaden
our boundaries to include the whole world. Maybe
the hoax that America can get along just fine by
minding its own business is gradually disappear
ing. There are certainly evidences that this Is hap
pening. When the Republicans long the prime
exponents of isolationism decided to nominate
a man cognizant of world politics, the first real
step toward defeating this hoax was taken. The
fact that students agree with this new trend
can be seen by their votes during the mock
primary. They selected Elsenhower over the
symbol of GOP isolationism, Bob Taft. So did
the Republican Convention.
This trend is most healthy. It is aided by the
enlightened work of the YMCA and YWCA and
a myriad of other organizations who see that
today's problems are world problems. Opportuni
ties such as the Y's have offered Nebraska stu
dents in this trip, are just the thing to further in
fluence young Americans into the correct chan
nels of thought.
This movement is not partisan. It has a def
inite place in both parties today and we pre
dict that it will have an even more important
part in years to come. There just isn't any other
Faculty Funds ...
On behalf of the All University
Fund Board I would like to thank

which is more than has been re

I read with some interest, Hal
Hasselbach's article entitled "It's
Korea's War," in the Oct. 8 issue.
It seems that here at last we have
a believer in what, I'm not
quite sure. Some points as a
matter of fact, all of them were
I'm sure, well taken, but perhaps
a little Information will light a
flare for the uninformed people
who don't seem to know some of
the reasons for this thing com
monly called by us, the warriors,
"The' Korean Krudd."
Long have the American
people been renounced for their
big talk, great confidence or
over-confidence and the general
belief that we are invincible at
the hands of any or all enemies.
It remains for history that on
just about all occasions where
an overt act of war was thrown
in our faces, we've usually been
clobbered but good. Pearl
Harbor and our initial defeats
in Korea are a few examples to
bring out the sad point. It all
boils down that we aren't as
hot as we think we are. What is
to be done?
True. Korea is a tragic thing
Indeed we've lost a great deal
In casualties, material and pres
tlce.. slowlv to be sure, but it's
growing daily In experience and
combat know-how, which can't be
learned in the classroom or train
ing fields using imaginary bullets
and the time-honored field man
uals. It takes a fight to make an
efficient fighting man, and Ko
rea seems to be the Answer for
obtaining this priceless exper
ience. Rember ,the guys that have
returned home know how to fight
and stay alive and there are
more than a few of them.
This shocks you, I know.
Americans don't want a war, so
why spend millions and untold
lives preparing for one? South
Korea didn't want a war either,
but South Korea has had the
full course and it shows to all
of us here and It makes a man
A small town was here all
that's left of it is an open field
along the road. No buildings, no
farms, no people, just a small
sign with a few bullet holes in it
to show where the town was.
These people didn't want or pre
pare for war they left it to
the diplomats and isolationists.
Now the men have all been killed,
the women raped and the children
maimed, homeless and hungry.
Tell me why this couldn't be Lin
coln or Fremont or Scottsbluff?
Tell my Korean houseboy, aged
15, orphan, half blind, brother
dead, sister a prostitute (in Korea
a violated woman has no other
resource), that it couldn't happen
to his town he won't laugh!
Yes, we need an army badly
so badly that It's costing us
plenty to get It. I'd hoped to
leave the melodrama and "old
story" routine out of this, but
the truth at times Is Indeed
hackneyed In this Instance and
It's H so real and close that
trying to explain It Is exasperating.
Another point for consideration:
Can it be Imaglnerl that a smaii
extremely proud nation like South
China? It would be like trying to ! even though many were my men
mon ud Lake Michigan with a! and friends. But I'd feel like a
sponge. Korea, without help,
country would fold like someone
hit by Tom Novak in about the
same amount of time.
To win a war like this, it
takes a lot of guys in a lot of
holes with enough guts to stay
there and then press the at
tack to the enemy. Koreans
have got the holes and the guts,
but they haven't got the Ko
reans. Keep In mind that those
little people who are at this
particular moment dug In about
1,000 yards north of this bunker
and shooting at us with even a
sink or two are Chinese, and i
someone must have loved the
Chinese to make so damn many
And a third point: We aren't
division alone we have the French
the only force in Korea. In this
the Dutch and the Thailanders
fighting right along with us. Dif
ferent nations are represented
throughout Korea in relative
small numbers, I'll admit, but the
member nations of the UN are as
capable and equipped as we to
send an army. Practically all of
the nations represented here, with
the exception of the US, have
suffered ravages of war in their
own front yards. They know what
w3r is and have sent what they
We're a rich powerful nation
who firmly believes in the UN.
Isn't it just, that our share be
in proportion to what we're
able to committ to battle?
Wouldn't a withdrawal mean a
repudiation of the organization
which we led Into exlstance?
Remember Geneva? Are We to
throw our national pride to the
wind for the sake of the blood
we've committed to let flow In
preserving, not only the In
tegrity of one small nation, but
the principles of the entire free
I'm graves registration officer

broken as a man can get. I'll not
bloody heel if American troops
were pulled out, knowing what
those fellas were here for and,
believe, me, they knew not in
so many words for most of them.
But in their hearts they knew.
We all want to come home. In
the last war the men sat in their
Inevitable bull sessions and
talked about sex. In this war
and It is a war regardless of the
term "police action" the main
topic of conversation Is of points
and the "The Big R," which is
Rotation home. We want
very much to come back to our
homes, our families, our friends
and our women, and most of us
will. But to toss aside, like an
old toy, our national commit
ments, our sense of fair play,
the helpless minority nations
and, perhaps most important,
the lives we've already lost is a
revolting proposal Incubated in
the minds of the narrow and
weak who talk of a beautiful
and peaceful world, but aren't
prepared to back it up with the
force necessary to establish it.
I hate war, there's no glory or
thrill in it, just fear, filth, blood
and death. When you think that it
could happen in your home town,
that your own people could be
butchered and outraged and sick
ening cold fear permeates the
very air you breath, you know
why there's a Korea. God willing,
and holler "UnclebsrwwaWiypao
we'll win this thing sometime
maybe a long way off, but not if
we quit or become squeamish and
sovft and holler "Uncle" when
we're hurting a little.
If we're going to have peace in
Korea or. anywhere, let it be an
honorable one and hold out for
nothing less. The dead demand it,
and we're in no position to argue.
