I hare two serious topics to discuss today. Oae
concerns man's efforts to live wi'.h his brothers
and the other concerns his efforts to live.
The first is Brotherhood Week and the other
is The Nebraska a's safety campaign.
Let vs consider first a wk designed to fos
ter racial, leligious and economic understanding.
The need for srh understanding is obvious. No
matter how tnxifix progress man has mad? in the
fight to destroy prejudice, there is always room
Germany was the censer of the wiMest pre
judice in recer.t history. Hitler tried to extermin
ate a race gwiicide. His fanatical hatred of the
Jews brought the world the most disgraceful ex
ample of racial bigotry.
But encouraging news about this infamy was
revealed on the camjus Tuesday by Professor Hans
HenfeU, visiting America from the Free Uni
versity of Germany. He said, as he spoke in one
of the many classes he visited, that a "greater
number" of Germans were not inclined to for
give Hitler for his crimes against the Jews.
The status of the German Jew now is almost
one-hundred per cent improved over the con
ditions in the Hitler era.' Of course, the professor
added, it is hard to remove immediately the Ideas
which, were impressed a the German people by

But progress is being made where progress

I would like to think that Americans have come
'as far in recognizing that there is no biological
or mental difference between bumans of one skin
pigmentation and those of another. ...
On the hope that I wont sound too preachy, I
would like to rscommend that every University
student give just two minutes of thought to this
subject. Think far two minutes on the orobtem
of increasing brotherhood. Think of what is im
plied in the word brother. Think of the efforts
yoa have made toward increasing brotherhood.

Whenever an Individual has bis life and pos
sible the life of someone else in his hands, he has
a terrific responsibility. Unfortunately, this re
sponsibility Is often disregarded. It is easily dis
missed if you are in a hurry. .
But remember that driving is a matter of life
This point was driven home most dramatically
last weekend. Two University students are re
covering from serious injuries in Lincoln hospi
tals and one student is dead all due to automo
bile accidents. It is a sad commentary on mod
ern society, but it took their accidents to bring
the importance of safe driving to the fore
Saturday afternoon the same day of the Van
Honse-Spear accident on Highway 6 Paul Wil
liams of the World-Herald called to ask if The
Nebraskan would cooperate with his paper in a
Crusade for Safety. He suggested that the acci
dent earlier that day would be a good excuse
for a campaign in our paper.
We need death to remind us of the impor
tance of safe driving.

in history was a film called "The

Now Warner Brothers have made
a new version of that same story
starring Danny Thomas and Peggy
