Editor subject and Brownell's views as Attorney General
A great Nebraskan who built up an outstand- ar vis
ing academic and extra-curricular activity record
at the University will deliver the address at the
82nd annual commencement June 6.
He is Herbert Brownell Innocent, Phi Beta
Kappa, editor of The Daily Nebraskan, top of his
class in scholarship who President Eisenhower
appointed United States Attorney General.
Brownell's subject has not been released as
yet. He could give a talk of nation-wide interest.
He could answer some questions the country
would like to have answered.
For instance, the former Nebraskan could ex
plain the new administration's policy on tidelands
oil. He could go into the problem deeply and pre
sent General Eisenhower's personal opinions on
the problem and its solution.
Or, he could delve into the darkness of Com
munist infiltration in the state Department and

The Arrival Of Teeth
In response to last week's editorial requesting
specific proposals concerning the improvement of
The Daily Nebraskan's safety campaign, a sug
gestion was submitted.
This suggestion will, in effect, put teeth in the
safety drive.
Daily, The Nebraskan intends to publish the
names of all students and faculty members in
volved in traffic violations. Appropriately, this
listing will appear next to the safety pledge.
Persons whose names will appear in this list
will no doubt be embarrassed, but this is not the
primary intention of the column.
Rather, the purpose of The Daily Nebraskan
is to illustrate to the student body and faculty
that collegians, as well as any other group, are
not above being reminded that safety is the busi
ness of everyone.
This compilation of ' names will continue
throughout The Nebraskan's safety campaign.
There is the possibility that no students or
faculty members will be involved in traffic in
fractions on a given day. This desirable situation
will be duly noted.
But, to those students and faculty members
whose names will appear, we have this to offer:

The Sun ascribed the decline in extra-curricular
interests to three factors:
1. Increased demands made upon the student
in other areas of university life,- particularly in
ROTC requirements.
2. Serious concern for academic achievement,
factor noted in a recent Sun survey.
3. Increased determination to enjoy social life
at college prior to military service.

The Sun is wrong, however, when it states,

Getting back to serious topics, students of a
couple of English schools went out on a limb
back in 1933. Because of certain parallelisms to
modern times, I reprint the editorial comment in
The Nebraskan 20 years ago:
"Two large student organizations at Oxford
and Manchester universities in England, the
famous Oxford Union and Manchester Union,
voted in a recent discussion by a large majority
that the members would 'in no circumstances
fight for its king and country.'
"Conservative Englishmen, sons of aristocrats,
in one of the oldest and most conservative of
English universities! Imagine them declaring
outright that they will not fight in any war, no
matter what the circumstances. Np longer do
they believe in a 'war to end all wars, and a war
'to make the world safe for democracy." They
are convinced that war cannot accomplish this or
any other good purpose.
"We doubt if there is a university in thit
country where as many students, (750 at .Oxford
and 371 at Manchester) could be induced to make
this supposedly radical declaration. Imagine the
consternation of a few of the ROTC officers if
such a vote should result in some of their classes.
"Most people are likely to be repelled by this
absolute pacifist stand. But in view of the fact
that war, rumors of war and vigorous prepara
tions for war are continually going on, it begins
to look like the only really effective means of
"doing anything about preventing war.
"This attitude is to be sincerely admired. Cer
tainly it is a consistent attitude for those who are
opposed to war. It might be vigorously recom
mended to the statesmen of the world that some
such consistency should be observed. This idea1
of signing peace pacts and then building arma-J
ments indefinitely with the very definite purpose,
of using them for war purposes, is becoming tiresome."
