Student Holiday
This next weekend will bo on of those times
that on the surface is crepe paper end music and
laughter and fun. Underneath the frivolity of its
surface, however, will be a time when University
alums return to the campus, parents come down
to see their sons and daughters in school, many
high school students parade around the campus
a time when people are impressed enough to en
courage others to attend the University and them
Eclvest impressed enough to financially support
their alma mater.
Friday night the colorful displays around the
Dream World
There are many dream worlds existing on this
campus those of the intellectuals those of the
Idealists those belonging the persons who don't
study and rationalize in the meantime. But this
writer has noticed a dream world in which the
lives of the Builders' Student Directory workers
Each fall at the beginning of the semester,
The Daily Nebraskan announces that the head
of the Student Directory has announced that
the Invaluable little books will be ready for
distribution at such and such a time. Further
stories carry the news that the Directory work
ers are going to meet their deadline are going
to have the Directory out on time.
This writer realizes all the situations that can
come up during the attempt to publish anything
particularly a book that carries the name of every
University student. It's not difficult to realize
the problems that make the Directory deadline
later than first announced and Builders is not
to be criticized for such.
However, Instead of saying "The directory
will be out Nov. 1 for sure this year," It would
perhaps be more realistic if the Directory man
agers would say "The Directory won't be out
until Nov. 11." Less griping about the publica
tion deadline would result if Builders would stop
kidding themselves and their anxious clients
about when the Directory will be ready for
distribution. R.R.
campus Will announce the opening of the annual
Homecoming weekend. A parade Saturday
morning will lead off the day's activities, the
Cornhuskers will battle the Gophers In the aft
ernoon and the Homecoming dance climaxed
with presentation of the Pep Queen will be the
grand finale to the weekend events.
Homecoming is one or the few traditions on
our campus College Days failed, we have no offi
cial migration, the Innocents Society tries valiantly
to begin traditions with other Big Seven schools
but the Carillon Tower still seems to be the only
"collegiate" mark on our campus.
Homecoming Is successful each year but
could be much more so with the declaration
by the Chancellor of an official "Student Holi
day" on Saturday classes dismissed, everyone
urged to attend the parade, the football game,
the dance. Perhaps few students are affected
by Saturday classes but University band mem
bers who have Saturday classes will not be able
to march' In the Homecoming parade.
The officials of the Homecoming celebration
must try to arouse the needed spirit and enthusl
asm for their project with business as usual on
our campus. Homecoming, in the eyes of many, is
Just another weekend with the majority of the
University family making no special attempt to
greet the thousands of visitors to the campus
and, in the long-run, encouraging more students
to enroll here and more alums to make out checks
to the University,
This writer feels strongly that the Homecoming
weekend is one that could and must take prece
dence over all other special weekends on this
campus. It must be the most important traditional
celebration of the entire year. This may sound
trivial but an academic approach is very often
not the thing that encourages people to support
an institution.
The Daily Nebraskan feels that declaration
of a Student Holiday for the Saturday of Home
coming must be worked into the University
calendar. We hope that It will be. R.R.
Hard To Say No
Fred A. Seaton says: "I have no plans for
any work in the government."
But he added: "Ike is a hard man to say 'no'
This leaves the political future of the Hastings
Tribune publisher hanging right in president-elect
Eisenhower's lap. Seaton was appointed to the
Senate by Gov. Val Peterson after Kenneth Wherry
died in office. According to the Constitution, the
governor of a state appoints someone to fill the
unexpired term of a senator who dies in office

Although The Daily Ne-
speak for the people of
Nebraska, we are almost sure that we echo the
thoughts of nearly everyone when we urge the

president might dangle before him. The last
Nebraskan to serve on the Cabinet was the late
Francis Matthews, of Omaha, Secretary of Navy
under Truman.
Seaton is an able and willing politician, and

hard work. Furthermore, he would give a Cabinet

the people of the state could elect a successor to
Wherry Nov. 4. They elected Dwight Griswold,
who will serve for two years.
After Seaton was appointed, he became one
of the most outspoken men In the Senate. Since
he did not have to worry about re-election, he
could speak out the way any senator should.
His record has been praised by. a great many
Democrats as well as fellow Republicans.
When General Eisenhower was nominated for
the Presidency by the Republican party last July,
he immediately chose a staff of campaign advisers.
Seaton was one of these and a great bulk of the
press has forecast that the Nebraska publisher will
be rewarded for this service with a Cabinet ap
pointment. It certainly is within the realm of possibility
despite the fact that Seaton claims he has "no
plans for any work in the government." He may
have no plans of his own but it is not his job to
make plans, he merely has to accept offers. He
definitely hasn't closed the door to offers.
Seaton has been a worthy Nebraskan and one
who could make a great name for himself in the
Cabinet. The Hastings Tribune could probably
survive without him although he has been an

no longer spends the night in supposedly scholarly
analyses of abstract philosophical questions. The
smoke-filled discussion room is becoming a lost
The "outside world" with all Its attendant
confusion, hustle and bustle has invaded the
campus. We race madly from this to that and
back again. We talk hard, work hard and play
hard. We don't do things one at a time if we
are doing anything, we are doing six things.
And we never stop doing things.
One of the few remaining areas in which we
could sit back, relax, and watch things one by
one, used to be half-time of football games.
For many minutes we tried to watch 22 men
do 22 different things, keep an eye on the football,
and check the striped shirts. Then we could relax
and calmly watch an orderly sequence of events.
Now even this small consolation is being denied
us. We had to figure out a two-ring circus at
half-time, Missouri.
This Is a plaintive plea to the powers that
be please give us back our orderly, one-event-at-a-time
half-times. Please. S.H. k

Seven and a half years ago, Nazi Germany, one
of the greatest war machines in history, fell to the
Allied powers of Europe and North America.
The process of rebuilding
began again for the second time
in a half-century. Germany had
been smashed industrially, eco
nomically and ideologically by
the most destructive warfare
mankind had ever achieved. And
adding to those vast problems,
she found herself a cats-paw in
the struggle between her two
most powerful conquerors
Russia and the United States. Griffis
Now, amazingly, Germany has made a re
covery so striking that she is threatening to be
come the top European economic power. The
German industrial genius which created such a
formidable enemy has been re-applied to peace
time economy with, spectacular effectiveness.
Production figures for October are 59 per cent
above the same figures for 1936. Building and
construction are booming. The coal and steel
industries, foundation of the German economy,
have reached their highest levels since war years.
In the trade circles of the world, German ex
ports during September exceeded imports by $36,-
500,000. Increased amounts of money are being
placed in savings institutions and Marshall Plan
statistics indicate that although the cost of living
has risen eight per cent, the industrial wage aver
ago is 13 per cent, higher. In contrast, the U.S.
cost of living has increased 13 per cent and the
wage average has risen only four per cent.
Rather than encouraging other European na
tions to allow Germany to regain her pre-war
status In continental affairs, the economic boom
seems to have made them more wary.
Particularly tension is arising in Franco-German
relations. Negotiations of the future control
of the Saar have been strongly hampered by fear
of Germany's growing trade and production in
other sections of the world.
One of the main aims of West German Chan
cellor Konrad Adenauer has been to build a na
tion capable of playing an active role in a uni
fied Europe. But paradoxically the strength that
has been developed is now acting as a detriment
to the Schuman plan and other proposals for
European unity.
