The Daily Nebraskan is wholeheartedly in

This Safely Business
The Daily Nebraskan's co-operation in the Cru
sade For Safety has been criticized.
Persons, both faculty members and students,
have expressed the opinion that such a campaign
is foolish and beneath the dignity of a collegiate
Opposition to the Nebraskan support of the
campaign is finally resolved to the question,
"What do you think The Daily Nebraskan can ac
complish by requesting that students and faculty
sign a piece of paper stating that the signator will
abide by the common-sense rules of safety?''
Let's follow the Nebraskan's reasoning.
1. The largest portion of automobile accidents
are caused by human failings misjudgment and
2. Since human. life is implacable, any efforts
to make people more conscious of safety, thus
lessening the number of highway fatalities, is
commendable even if- but one life is saved.
Is there any argument on these points?
In the first place, any one who has taken the
time to be critical or find fault with the cam
paign has, in fact, become influenced by it That
person is "safety conscious," and in discussing
safety, he is so making other people "safety con
scious." The influence is subtle and perhaps un
recognized by the individual, but nevertheless is
present The purpose of the Daily Nebraskan is
to jnake people "safety conscious."
For that reason criticism is invited.
However, the second point, which is often
overlooked by both professional and amateur
critics, deals with the nature of the criticism. Few
people would argue that the ends in a safety cam
paign are not worthwhile, it is with the method
of reaching those ends that most critics find their

with a feeling of delight and glee in planning the
so-called "Health Weeks," which are known as
HeU Weeks in the extreme inner circles away
from the eyes of the administration.
A year ago at this time, The Nebraskan bad
hopes Oat the Interfraternity Council would aid
the Greeks at the University in replacing the ob
solete Hell Weeks with Help Weeks but at the
close of all initiations, only six fraternities found
time for such project'' as collecting toys for or
phanages, cleaning camp sites and redecorating
homes badly in need of repair all worthy of
praise. However, 23 Greek groups seemed to find
time to carry out their Hell Weeks.
Last year the Nebraskan also praised the mem
bers of Theta XL, Sigma Nu, and Farm House for
donating services to the Cedar Home for Children
and Camp Min-Is-Kuya. Sigma Chi was congrat
ulated for collecting toys and Phi Delta Theta was
recognized for repairing a run-down Lincoln home.
But have these efforts infiltrated through into
the others to make it a yearly project or were
these just ranked as publicity stunts?
To date, The Nebraskan has only been able to
discover one group with a worthy project in mind
donating blood to the Red Cross. We hope that
they carry this excellent idea through.
If those who practice Hell Weeks would realize
the harm done not only to their groups, but to the
University by outsiders who view their actions!
