UTTLI MAN ON CAMPUS
Two Prizes: Golden Bui Awkward
The world awoke Monday morning to read
that the West may now possess two of the
Soviet Union's most prized possessions La
vrenti P. Beria and a MIG-15.
Someone connected in some manner with
the McCarthy investigations subcommittee
thinks he has discovered a refugee who is
Gen. Mark Clark bought the plane from its
pilot for $100,000.
Neither prize may do the Western World
Last spring Gen. Clark announced to the
Communists that the United Nations would
pay $100,000 to the first MIG pilot to fly his
plane to the UN side and $50,000 to every
additional pilot. The object, of course, was
to lower the morale of the Communist avia
tors and to obtain a MIG for detailed exam
ination. But the fighting is supposedly over; the
UN and the Communists are engaged in ne
gotiations for a permanent armistice.
.. Because Clark says that the cash offer is
still In effect, the Communists may charge
that the UN is not negotiating in good faith.
They may accuse the United States and its
allies of "purchasing treason" among Com
Regardless of how moral our offer to "buy"
MIG's might be, giving the Communists any
opportunity to criticize our actions is bad
policy if WE are negotiating in good faith.
The other prize, Mr. Beria, is a more diffi
cult subject to approach. Obviously, the man
could aid th United States and the United
Nations by explaining the progress of the So-
All-University Fund representatives, an
xious to set the record straight about the
pre-school collections, contacted The Ne
braskan Monday to explain the reasons be
hind the early solicitations.
The campaign, according to AUF president,
Rocky Yapp, is not in conflict with the "sole,
. CAe-hit drive opening Oct. 5. Those persons
who made their donations before the start of
classes were given receipts which, in effect,
.WW exempt them from further AUF sales
talk. The purpose of this "pre-drive" drive was
t contact thai incoming students who, ac
' ""cording to AUF, frequently change their ad
dresses by the time the general solicitation
begins. Also, many independent students con
tacted during the "pre-drive" would have
been difficult to locate when the actual drive
Yapp further explained that the pre-school
drive has been in effect for the last eight
years and is not an innovation. He said that
perhaps a "one-solicitation" label would bet
ter describe the AUF principle than the oft-
used (and sometimes misused) "all-inclusive,
one-hit, sole" drive.
Despite any change in describing AUF's
drive, The Nebraskan continues to endorse the
AUF principle and wishes the best of luck in
ta "coming" campaign. E.D.
Engineers are quite definitely engineers; ag
students have the same group-conscious at
titude. An affinity exists between students
and between students and faculty which is
lacking in other colleges within the Univer
sity. The College of Business Administration is
taking steps to remedy this lack with the
formation of a student council within the col
lege. According to a communication from
Dean E. S. Fullbrook, a student council had
"functioned successfully but was a war cas
ualty." Formation of a council might be looked
upon as merely another step in an age of in
creasing specialization and centralization. It
could be said that no longer can persons be
JtWt students, in an abstract sense, that they
are forced into identification with a group
within a group, that they are being pressed
into an ever-narrowing niche.
It could be added that the council would be
"another activity" something else to take
p the time of already too-busy students.
These things could be said and they would
be true, but to stop there would be to ignore
the three point purpose of the council: "to
represent the student body of the College of
Business Administration in promoting func
tions of the College; to represent the student
body in its relations with the faculty; and to
promote the general welfare of both the Col
lege and the student body."
Constitutions always speak in generalities,
particularly where purposes are concerned.
Thus organizations, as well as nations, become
whatever those most concerned make them.
If Biz Ad students wish, the council could
provide that elusive, if much-sought object,
an open forum for the exchange of ideas be
tween students and between students and
Here's hoping the Biz Aders make their,
eouncil-to-be a constructive, helpful organ of
expression for their mutual interest, and a
link with their faculty not a time-waster,
not an "activity." S.H.
viet Union's atomic andhydrogen bomb pro
jects, as well as the secret police.
The news accounts report xnat tne man
thought to be Beria wants to speak immed
iately with President Eisenhower, Vice-Presi
dent Nixon or Sen. McCarthy. The man ap
pears to want to share his secrets.
But three difficulties immediately arise.
First, the refugee may not be Beria, even
though McCarthy's aid said, "We believe that
there is only one chance out of a hundred
that this man is not Beria." After all, a num
ber one prisoner of the Communists Just
doesn't walk out of his cell.
Second, who knows that this is not simply
an ingenious Communist plot to give us false
information concerning their atomic develop
ment, Even though Beria has reportedly been
tossed out of his job, he may be another Ru
dolf Hess, only smuggled into Germany in
stead of dropped into Britain. If our memory
is correct, a couple of Japanese diplomats
were negotiating in Washington for a lasting
peace when Pearl Harbor was attacked in
Third, the announcement of the identity of
the refugee came from a spokesman for Mc
Carthy's committee. The last time the Wis
consin senator dealt in State Department af
fairs, he made a big news splash in announc
ing that Greek ship owners had promised him
not to deliver strategic goods to Bed China.
Later we discovered that the State Depart
ment had received a similar promise from
the Greek government shortly before and
that McCarthy's achievement was not so
great as assumed.
Curoiusly enough, the senator managed to
gain a lot of unwarranted favorable publicity
during the entire affair.
Despite the spokesman's confidence that
the man is Beria and despite the possibility
that Beria may want to "get even" with his
former Bolshevik buddies, we'll keep calm
until the State Department and the Presi
dent have had a chance to determine what
the refugee is worth.
We hope that he will do more for world
peace than the purchase of the MIG-15 prom
ises to do. K.R.
Panty raids in Britain?
Today's undergraduates in England neither
swallow goldfish nor stage so-called panty
raids on sorority houses.
They climb roofs instead.
"Stegophilism," which comes from the
Greek stege meaning roof and philos mean
ing crazy about, is the current extra-curricular
diversion in English schools and uni
versities. The October Reader's Digest in an article
on this nocturnal pastime states that, "Hardy,
anonymous athletes are training for the
eventual conquest of Swiss or Himalayan
peaks by pitting their muscles against the
pinnacles and drainpipes of the college build
ings. The fact that the authorities frown upon
such sport and expel anyone caught indulging
in it adds a delightful piquancy not found in
the Alps themselves."
Nebraska would-be addicts might be sty
mied by the relatively modernistic architec
ture found over here.
Oh well, more's the challenge.
See you atop the Carillon tower, eh what!
What Of Our Rallies Now?
Since Saturday's game, rally planners are
concerned with the outcome of future rallys.
Friday night's rally exceeded most hopeful
planners' wildest expectations as 1700 stu
dents joined the parade and yelled their lungs
out for the team and Nebraska. What will
Will the student body continue to hold up
their end of the deal and create the will for
the football team to win or will the results
of the Oregon game squelch any hopes that
a new era in student body support and en
thusiasm has bloomed?
Fire Drills Replaced?
The latest news flash states that Lincoln
is one of 193 cities probably on Russia's list
for atomic attack. Although not a critical
area, the government evidently feels there is
enough danger to make a public warning
Next thing we know, fire drills will be old
fashioned stuff and atomic drills will be in
vogue. Instead of routing the dorm out of bed
in the middle of the night with towel and
sandbag, safety-minded supervisors will be
herding sleepy-headed "victims" into dark

"Into the Valley of the shadow
of death rode the six hundred."
When six hundred men ride
into the valley of the shadow of
death, it is not likely that they
did so at the point of a gun at
least not in this country.
I am sure that the British light
infantry of Tennyson's Charge
rode because they wanted to, be
cause they could have turned
If six hundred men in this
country rode into the numerous
well-known communist fronts,
whether they were clergymen or
not, they did it because they
wanted to, and should be held
accountable for it.
Whj Is it, everybody wants to
find communists anywhere until
somebody starts to do it. The
fact that it is McCarthy and
Velde that are doing it is our
own "fault, or rather the fault of
people who say McCarthy and
Velde are galloping over the
backs of people that say, "I re

that it might incriminate me."
If McCarthy and Velde are to
be criticised, then it had better
be done with an offer of a bet

it is only communists, pinko
