Friday, October 9, 195.
The fact that the honeymoon is over for
the Eisenhower Administration was clearly
demonstrated by several news stories ap
pearing this week.
Of course, the honeymoon has been over
for some time; but this week's news sounds
more like a divorce is in the offing.
Two cabinet members pulled political
boners which the Democrats will likely
make much of; in addition, the nation's press
has been considerably irked.
Attorney General Brownell made his faux
pas when he alienated the working press by
choosing a limited and special audience for
the announcement of Warren's appointment
as Chief Justice.
Five newspapers were given the scoop .
while the rest of the press remained in ig
norance. This provoked other newspaper
men to Inquire whether this was to be the
policy of the Administration to "leak" im
portant news to friendly newspapers?
An answer of no can hardly erase the ill
feeling created by such favoritism; for, be
sides newsmen who were scooped, the gen
eral public may take the attitude that hap
hazard, arbitrary release of news to them is
the sign of an Administration not anxious
to publish all of the news.
Then, to add to waning public confidence,
Secretary Wilson confused the man on the
street and no doubt his own Republican col
leagues this week by virtually contradicting
himself and the President on the question of
Russia' H-bomb capabilities.
Said tha President Tuesday, ". . . every na
tion and society" might be doomed by atomic
warfare. Further he warned that Russia
was awara of the "mysteries of the atom."
Said Secretary Wilson Tuesday a few hours
later,. It might be "stretching it a bit" to say
Runssia has a practical H-bomb ' and the
planes to deliver it.
This leaves the nation a little perplexed.
When tha Atomic Energy Commission, the
University students are an inquisitive, cur
Nothing seems to escape their penetrating
For Instance, now that AtJF has initiated
Its ifall drive, questions are being raised v
about AUF. ; .- - ;'.
How is it financed, who gets the money,
are precautions taken to insure against, pil-.
fering of the funds?"
These questions are easily answered 'and
AUF, both through The Nebraskan and its
own solicitors, has answered these.
However, one of the questions now being
asked by skeptical students is so provoking,
The Nebraskan determined Jt was, worth an ,
The question is usually stated, "Well, I al
ways heard that charity begins at home.
What about the AUF Kick-off dinner?"
This is a legitimate question in that it im- -plies,
"Who pays for it AUF workers or the
whole student body by means of a percent
age take-off of donations "
This question has been raised by several
students during the week, so The Nebraskan,
anxious to serve the student body, investi
gated. Wt found that the dinner is NOT paid for
.by using the 5, per cent campaign expense
fund as many have charged. In other words,
your donation to AUF does NOT help to pay
for the Kick-off dinner.
We did find that the Union donates its
services for' the dinner and the workers are
required to furnish the decorations at no ex
pense to AUF.
In fact AUF officials maintain that in addi
tion to the time donated by the solicitors,
they are expected to donate money also
usually more than the average donation.
The 5 per cent campaign expense fund, in
fact, is not fully used. Last year expenses
amounted to a mere 2 per cent of the total;
the other 3 per cent normally allowed as ex
penses was diverted to Holland flood relief
and the Omaha flood area.
, So instead of using the expense fund for
administrative costs (which would have in
cluded the dinner), actually AUF surrendered
its rightful claim to the money and donated
it. to charity.
In view of this, The Nebraskan believes
that AUF is indeed aware that "charity be
gins at home." E.D.
Parking Vs. Huskers
Campus parking almost lost the Huskers
file service of John Bordogna Thursday.
John missed the train carrying the football
team to Saturday's encounter with Pitt be
cause he couldn't find a parking place on
Fortunately, Lincoln police were able to
rush Bordogna to Omaha in time to catch the
train with only an 8 minute delay.
The- acute parking situation has rated a lot
of complaints in the past; but we believe this
is the first time it almost contributed to the
possible loss of a football game. E.D.

President and the Secretary of Defense pub
licly disagree or at least have different ver
sions of such1 an important subject, one can
hardly conclude that unity is at a peak within
high administration circles.
Coupled with Secretary of Labor Durkin's
resignation "over a Taft-Hartley dispute and
Secretary of Agriculture Benson's unpopular
farm policies, it looks as though Eisenhower
has a full-time job just keeping peace within
his family of close advisors.
The political family however, unlike the
married couple, can stand a divorce or an
nulment on occasion and still remain intact. ,
But, on the other hand, confidence and unity
Just as with the married couple, fidelity
and loyalty are required for a successful poli
tical family. E.D.
Are We Working?
Perhaps this problem of school spirit lies
not in discouragement with the team, well
planned rallies, or opposition to our coach.
Perhaps it lies in the fact that we just
plain don't have enough school loyalty.
Where does school loyalty come from?
Does it come from yelling until we are
hoarse or clapping our hands until they
sting? -U '. .-
No, loyalty does not come from any artifi
cial activity. We must have the loyalty first,
before we can express it in our cheering.
School loyalty comes from working for
The ideal is working for the University to
improve it in some way perhaps in activi
ties, sports or scholarship. It is the kind of
work that makes you feel dog-tired at the
end of the day.
Put yourself on a trial basis. Work, work,
and work some more for your school, not for
yourself. Until you contribute this "some
thing," you can never feel true loyalty.
After a year of good solid work for your
school, after many "dog-tired" evenings, you
will have a feeling for the University that it
would take a lot more than one or two de
feats of the football team to take away. Then
you will have "school loyalty."
Why don't we stop sitting by and just let
ting things run themselves. The team doesn't
do that. As Gary Hild said we've given them
a raw deal rejecting them for losing a game.
They are working. Why don't we? C.H,
Together For Once
A student-conceived and supported pro
gram has proved its worth it has been
adopted by the University as a " permanent
ruling. t ;
The Inter-Fraternity Council-sponsored
program, making a free physical .examina
tion' and food handling training course avail- '
able to students at no cost at the Student
Health Center has yet to prove its real value,
but is a significant point in Student-Administration
The IFC plan, recently adopted by the
University as a requirement for al food
handlers and servers at the Ag and city
Unions and the Women's Residence Halls, has
shown students are really interested in their
own welfare and need only a helping hand,
not a detailed "program of assistance to turn
out workable, functionable plans."
This and few, too few, plans were worked
out with students working with administra
tive personnel, and the plan seems like a
good one. It would be a laudable situation if
cooperation and "working together" of this
type could continue on even a more extensive
Toast To The Warriors
Speaking of the AUF Kick-Off dinner, we
are reminded of the Japanese custom,, during
World War II, of a similar nature. Before
they sent out the Kamikaze pilots, a ceremon
ial dinner was held. SaRi was offered, how
ever. (The Nebraskan does not advocate
saki for AUF workers. Too hard to obtain
The crowds at the Coliseum in Rome would .
have loved the show at Aberdeen, Md.,
Thursday when the Army gave a virtual
"circus." The new 85-ton atomic cannon was
the feature attraction, but barely managed to
out-shine the new 58-ton tank . retriever.
Of course, security regulations kept the
ultra-secret objects under closely guarded
wraps. But, there is always the. chance for
a surprise "feature,", and the big-wigs turned'
out in force for the "circus.' .-
Good Luck, Council
The Nebraskan wishes to congratulate the
newly-elected members of the Student Coun
cil of the College of Business Administration.
We hope that the new board will become a
true spokesman for the students of the Col
lege and that other colleges will soon follow
in its footsteps.

Max Shulman is a writer of
books depicting the lives of the
younger set in America. Usually,
ex-college boy Shulman writes
about current college boys and
girls. Not long ago Mad Max
wrote a book called the "Many
Loves of Dobbie Gillis."
With the title slightly changed
to "The Affairs of Dobbie Gillis,"
you can now see the screen ver
sion of the book. Dobbie is more
musically inclined in the film
than he was on the pages. Also

Shulman wrote the screen play
for the movie. Actually Shulman
without Shulman description is
not very Shulmanesque. He
wrote a mediocre scenario, but
the show is humorous.
You'll see intimations of you,
your friends' and your profs in
this movie. A young fella by
the name of Van that's his
last name plays Dobbie in the
movie. He does some rather nice
dancing twice in the process of
the story as does Debbie.
