But is isn't just wild statements by American

t faith would be detrimental because right now inar how important they thought it was that the
the UN needs constructive criticism badly. Con
structive or not, there is plenty of criticism.
In many places, both here and abroad, this
criticism has become both irrational and demon
strative. There are rood reasons to wonder
whether this Irrational criticism Is Indicative of
the real world public opinion. Nevertheless, the
people connected with the United Nations seem
to think that It Is and this la what Is Important.
As k member of the YW-YMCA sponsored
United Nations seminar which has Just returned
from UN headquarters, this writer Is struck by
the largo number of UN employees and foreign
delegations which feel they are worklnr against
It must be said immediately that they have not
become any less convinced that they are right be
cause of this. Everyone connected with the UN
seemed firmly convinced that he was a part of the
only organization with any possibility of achiev
ing world peace. It was generally conceded that
changes should and would be made, but the uni
versal feeling very definitely was that the UN was
oa the right track.
This, then, brlngi us back to those who insist
on criticizing everything that the UN does or
tries to do. Unfortunately, the most vocal critics
of this type In our country are members of a
Senate sub-committee Investigating the possibil
ity of spies among the U.S. citizens working In
the Secretariat. Specifically, we mean Senators
McCarrsn and Smith who have recently deliv
ered an ultimatum to the UN. They said that,
If the UN did not purge itself of spies, it should
ret out of the United States.
This statement, backed by a discouraging num
ber of others from similar sources, has caused
UN have complete public support and how much
they thought that this support was lacking.
They blamed this on the press. Everyone
gave the argument that the press was throwing
the story of the United Nations out of proportion
by playing up the controversies. They argued
that this gives the Individual citizen the opinion
that the UN has not accomplished anything and
never will because of the constant East-West
struggle. The Nebraskan doea not think that
the press Is responsible for this feelinghow
ever, we cannot deny that this feeling ts entirely
non-existant. We agree that something needs to
be done to acquaint the world with the really
broad objectives of the United Nations. Not
only that, but we feel very strongly that some
thing must be done to tell the world about the
great accomplishments that the UN has already
made and Is making every day.
But and we feel that this is a very Important
but The Nebraskan does not think that the
people of the U.S. have written off the United Na
tions as a failure. It is next to impossible to test
the opinion of a ration. However, we can point
to one very definite indication of public approval
at least interest of the United Nations. We are
referring to the 54 "students from this state who
had enough interest in world government to at
tend the seminar. Beyond this, The Nebraskan
would like to point to the YW and YMCA as
examples of organizations trying to promote un
derstanding of the United Nations.
We feel that despite the rantings of small
people with loud voices the people of our na
tion have not lost faith in the UN. We grant
that a huge publicity campaign is needed to keep
this faith going, but we honestly believe that
this campaign will appear. D. P.

It is with a great Heal of re

traditional Mortar Board Ban.
We had been planning, prepar

We had booked three differ

notified that the bands had other

notified that the Neal Hefti

which a down-payment had
been made, had another engage

lents to bring a third-rate band
to the campus just in order to

For these reasons we are not
having the Mortar Board Ball this
year. However, this does not mean
that the Ball will not be held in

Sen. Joe McCarthy declared war on Commu
nism and thusly incurred the ill will of everyone
interested in upholding freedom from fear. This
ill will is justified because Senator Joe wants to
fight Communism with Communistic methods.
The American Legion decided to join the anti
Communism fight and blacklisted every organiza

would seem a matter of time before the Boy Scouts
State legislatures, universities and labor
unions got on the band wagon and demanded

This brought the counter-charge from a
member of the committee that Lie was guilty of
"irresponsible" talk. And to add to the furor.
Feller's death recalled to many the Committee's
recent statement that the United Nations could
either clean the spies and saboteurs out of its
ranks or get off American soil.
The debate resolves itself into one big ques
tion: How can we intelligently and democratically
This Is the question which is before the people
and which must ultimately be decided by the
people. Secretary General Lie is wrong in direct
ing his criticism at the McCarren Committee. The
people are responsible for the actions of all elected
officials and should be held so.
If the people continue to express at least
tacit approval of such tactics, we will find our
selves fighting not only Communis but also

This week I would like to hop

In the vocal department, I
think that none can compare
with the fairly recent sensation,
Yma Sumac. You no doubt have
heard her wonderful album of
"Xtabay" in which she displays
her fantastic ability to success

was born in Peru in 1927 and
came to the U. S. a few years
ago. According to press releases
she Is of royal ancestery, and Is
worshipped by the Incas. You
can take that for what it Is
She is, however, beyond a doubt
a major discovery in the field of
music. Getting back to this "Xta

ter, in his own right a wonderful
concert performer, provides the ar
rangement and back-ground music.
Besides making recordings, Yma
has gone on inanyy tours, giving
concerts at Carneig Hall and Holly
wood Bowl. Her releases thus far,
provide excellent entertainment
and relaxing (if anyone has time.)
Not changing the mood too
much, Dr. Hoffman, master of
the comparatively new instru
ment the thcremin, is featured
in 2 albums. Music out of The
Moon, and Piece of Mind. The
former was very good seller In
'50. Here is an instrument with
the quality of a wonderful
vocalist and the tonal depth of
a violin. It has been used in
several movies in which the di
rector wished to set a weird
mood. Such pictures as "Spell
bound, and "Duel In the Sun,"
were among the list Also fea
tured on the discs is a vocal
group which uses no words.
Here are some very exciting
moments In listening.
From the mouth of that great
jazz critic Lenard Feather, "don't
miss Woody Hermans concert
at Carnegie Hall album." This
music was taped in 1946 and was
just recently released. In '46, at
the height of Herman's musical
career, his arranging and solo
trumpet work was done by Neal
Hcfti. Neal, as you probably know
is the band which is being fea
tured at the Mortar Board dance.

The voices of Walter Schuman
are heard in the album. "Romance

successful records of the group in

"Fools Rush In." High-lighted in
the Romance album is "Love,"

the trust our allies formerly held for us.
By all processes of logic, we are falling into the
hands of the Communists when we aggravate the
misunderstandings between us and our allies. By
all logic we cannot rationalize that fighting Com
munism justifies totalitarian methods. While to
talitarian methods may defeat Communism, they
also defeat freedom.
The free nations of the world look to us for
leadership in keeping the world free. Must we
admit to them that we have nothing better than
totalatarianism to offer in place of Communism?
A charming Britisher spoke to a handful of
persons at the Love Library Auditorium Tues
day evening about the Island Kingdom's reac
tions to the last American election. Colin Jack
son's delightful and informative talk captivated
his meager audience.
It seems a shame that the address could not
have been scheduled at a time more conducive
to a student schedule or else held in a smaller
room where Jackson could have talked more in
formally to his interestetd audience.
What Did They Say?
A Hews service story 1n Wednesday's papers
said that one photographer was permitted to snap
"three revealing shots" of President Truman's
conference with Prei'ident-elect Eisenhower. No
revelation came to this writer upon looking at one
of the pictures showing Eisenhower listening to
something Mr. Truman had to say."
Perhaps the writer of the news story was let
ting his personal hspes get into his words the
hope reflected by millions of people that the
publle talent know what went on between The
Fresideiit and The General. We have been told,
to I&te, that the meeting was not highlighted by
stay evidences of warmth and freindshlp.
