test Beivwen Us...
By DON PIEPER
Spring, I think, is coming and that means tests,
term papers and catching up on semester study
ing. It also means that the call of the out doors
is getting louder. t
But, despite all this, I would like to see some
student action. I'm not asking for much effort
a little, but not much. What I want is an expres
sion of student opinion on the honor system. Now,
I don't expect any scholarly disertation, they will
be accepted but not encouraged. What I would
like to have is a flood of short letters with the campus but we will be glad to print your opinion
This, of course, Is discouraging. We can get
snatches of student thought through conversations
but this method limits us to our immediate friends
and they often aren't very representative,
So, why don't you take a 10-minute break from
your history text tonight and squeeze in a letter
to The Daily Nebraskan between a coke date and
a letter home.
We are especially interested in your opinion
on the place an honor system could have on this
real student opinion on the subject.
It's awfully easy to sit in our editorial ivory
towers and write about ideals, fcven though the
staff of your paper is composed of students, we
often fail to express the true student- opinion.
on anything. We ask only that all letters be kept
at a reasonable length and be accompanied by your
signature. We will not print your signature if you
wish but it must accompany the letter.
We don't care if you blast us or thank us
but please don't ignore us.
Torture, Starvation, Neglect
It must be great to be at Freedom Village and
see all the guys come home. It must be great
to see their faces the faces of men who never
expected to come back.
And all this returning of prisoners must make
the soldier in the muddy foxhole further up the
line feel better too. After all, it might not be so
bad to get caught It doesn't make him want to be
captured but sometimes those things happen.
And yet we all know it's a trick.
This, students, is a peace offensive,
many respects it is really offensive.
Take, for instance, the trip a group of Ameri
can editors and publishers recently made into the
Soviet Union. They went through Kremlin art
museums. They saw outstanding murals on sub
way, walls. They saw a lot that should indicate
a healthy economy and a peace-loving nation.
But they saw a lot that turned their stomachs
Taking into consideration the fact that they were

President Eisenhower said the
other day that he felt Secretary of
Commerce Weeks would not be
arbitrary or unjust in the enforced
resignation of Dr. A. V. Astin,
director of the Bureau of Stand
ards. There are others who share
the President's rood opinion of
Mr. Weeks. That Is one reason
to hope that In the light -of de
veloping circumstances the Sec-,
retary will reconsider accept
ance of the Astin resignation
and request that Dr. Astin re
main in his post until the com
pletion of pending investiga
tion. That would be the act of
a Just man.
Consider these facts:

As far as rules go, a close
parallel exists between the head
lines of today and those of more
than 20 years ago. For example,
the following headlines give evi
dence that the University faced
some of the same problems then
as we do today:
"Students Plan Party Without
Proper Consent," "Seven Frater
nities Receive Ten Dollar Fines
For Not Obeying Rush Rules,"
"Parking Problem Is Becoming
Quandary," "Council Debates

These headlines come from The
Daily Nebraskan published In
1930. Other stories written in that
year showed that some rules of
today are a far-cry from the rules
of that time. They also Indicate
how unfavorable student reaction
to rules paved the way to the
rules we now have.
It was in that year that the
faculty committee ruled that men
and women would occupy separ

from a football game. Their rea
sons for the rule was that the
students "needed rest" and that
"there always have been a few
individuals who have taken ad
vantage of mutual association of
men and women on these trips to
carry on in a manner that is not
considered good taste.
The dean of women at that time
recalled that on previous trips the
men and women were given seats
in separate coaches with chap

They Laughed At The Truth
A section of the American press was laugh
ingor trying to laugh Monday morning at the
new Senate marathon speaking record set Satur
riiy by Sen. Wayne Morse (Inde-Ore). The
rpeech, lasting 22 hours 26 minutes, was delivered
during the debate on the tidelands oil bin.
By Monday a certain segment of the press had
fitted Morse's speech into it see-no-evil, speak-no-truth
policy in regard to the tidelands bill.
And, knowing nothing else to do, it .came up try
ing to laugh. One paper called the speech an "up
roarious . . . comedy" and poked fun at the more
liberal members of the Senate, who opposed the
bQI, for using the same "filibuster tactics" they
have so often opposed in the past
These shouts and accusations were expected.
Throughout the entire tidelands debate these pa
pers have used exactly the same tactics to de
tract from the real issues involved. They have
seen no evil in the bill which would rob 155 mil
lion Americans for the benefit of 25 million. They
have spoken little truth about the true signifi
cance of the tidelands oil to the American peo
ple. Their cries of "comedy" and "filibuster now
come when the senators who realize the value
cf the offihort oil to the nation are trying des
perately to bring the issue before the public eye.
Their long speeches not a filibuster because they
are not trying to prevent a vote are the last
ditch effort to bring the true story of tidelands cil
to the attenion cf the public
These senators are operating on the belief that
the public support for the "give-away" bill, cited
by the see-no-evil press, is a passive support based
on general misinformation. Much of the mis
conception of the submerged oil-rich lands stems
from this very press, which has been quite suc
cessful in covering facts with a popular, almost
demagogic veneer of states rights.
The weeks of debate probably will not change
the vote on the bill now before the Senate. But
an awakened public can at least stop the give
away program from expanding to federal forests
and federally-controlled waters within the legal
state boundaries. Legislation aimed at securing
state control of these natural resources is report
edly being prepared in Congress for the day when
the tidelands bill becomes law.
If the fight to prevent this raid is an "up
roarious . . . comedy," then the speak-no-truth
press is right in laughing at the speech by Sen
Morse. If. however, the prolonged debate is
aimed at awakening the American people to the
big steal now being perpetrated, this section of
the press is helping selfish, special interests to rob
the nation of its resources and its wealth.
While we dislike to see the Senate tied up on
one measure for three or four weeks, perhaps this
is the only method to focus the proper attention
on one of the most important items Congress will
consider during the current session.
We applaud Sen. Morse and bis colleagues
Sens. Hill, Kefauver, Humphrey, Anderson, Wiley
and Douglas for their fight fo protect the interests
of the American public K.R.

Publishers of The Daily Nebraskan: take heart.
Others before you have had their financial prob

character who stood in a pool of clear water but
was unable to bend over to quench a thirst that
nearly consumed him. The Daily Nebraskan, to
mention only one publication, this year has stood
on 'the brink of financial ruin ad has not been
able to satisfy its needs with the salvation which
lay ready to hand.
To emerge from the dubious analogy, we re
fer specifically to the fact that The Nebraskan
and other University publications are unable to
use tobacco advertising along with other advertis
ing which is the main aource of revenue for these
publications. For years there has been a strug
gle on the part of each successive student publica
tion staff to obtain permission to run tobacco ad
vertising revenue which has been so pronounced
this year, the desire for this potential revenue
has been intensified, but still with no results.
"Perhaps an argument for tobacco advertising
because of financial stringency seems to indicate
a lack or principles. Perhaps to some the idea
