New Farm Program Announced
WASHINGTON The new farm program "under the Eisen
hower administration would count present big surpluses of cotton,
wheat and corn in fashioning future production control program

The provision for a variable price support formula under
which prices for basic crops would be high in times of shortages

Varsity Sportsmanship
Discussed By TV Panel
Nebraskan Editor, Alum, Coach
Disagree On Recruiting Policy
Various aspects of "Varsity
Sportsmanship" were discussed
Thursday by members of a panel
discussion over KFOR-TV. They
were: Sally Hall, editor of the
Nebraskan; Bill Glassford, head
football coach, and Daniel
Bernd, University alum and
former athlete.
The group discussed the possi
bility that athletic recruits from
other states be excluded from
the University, and that other
states be encouraged to do the
DEFENDING the present
policy of recruiting out-of-state
athletes, Glassford asserted that
"we must have something to at
tract people to the University."
We must decide on what basis
we wish to compete with other
universities, he said.
Glassford added that "just be
cause a boy has athletic ability"
is no reason why he should be
barred from the University.
Miss Hall suggested then that
other colleges, such as journal
ism and home economics, should
also go to other states to recruit
We must decide whether the
purpose of the Upiversity is to
provide education or public en
tertainment, Miss Hall empha
sized. BERND SAID that the attitude
is wrong when "money is not
paid out for developing leaders,
but for providing a . winning
team , . . in our University. He
went on to say that the term
"scholarships" is "wildly inap
propriate" when used to refer to
American Association of Uni
versity Professors, both "happy
and proud."
He discussed "Academic Free
dom" at the YM-YWCA annual
banquet held in the Union
Thursday evening.
Beutel pointed out that aca
demic freedom was largely a
matter of "public relations" be
tween three groups of people,
"faculty and students, the public
and educational administrators."
He said, "Professors should have
the right to say anything they
desire, with the exceptions of
libel, propaganda and limits of
moral decency."
Beutel said, "involves the right
of a professor to say whatever
he pleases and the right of the
student to hear whatever he
wants to hear."
Because of a difficulty in de
fining truth, Beutel said, "it is
the important duty of the pro
fessor to aee that the fects are
given impartially." A professor
will be guaranteed academic
tenure if he is "competent and
fair in his teachings," he said.
The right to be "judged by his
peers" is a right that shoul.1 be
given instructors if their ability
to present the truth is ques
tioned, Beutel added.
Trouble from the public comes
from ex-officio censors and self
appointed patriots, Beutel stated.
He defined ex-officio censors as
mainly "senators and editors,

Beutel said, "are taxpayers who
can hire and fire professors be
cause they pay taxes." He cited
the recent athletic situation at
an example.
CIVILIZATION has flourished
in areas of academic freedom,
while examples of intolerance
have ruined civilization, Beutel
said. Some authorities, he said,
have compared the decline of
academic freedom in the U.S. to
"beginning of Naziism."
Beutel gave examples of uni
versity administrators who failed
to "protect their faculty," stating
that many times where teachers
were under attack, administra
tors had run for cover.

Committee Named To Devise Substitute
The Student Council voted Wed
nesday to disapprove the pro
posed constitution of the All
Class Council and appointed a
committee to work with class offi
cers in preparing a workable con
stitution. The constitution would enlarge
the class council to include four
officers of each of the four classes
and would require that two wom
en be elected for each class.
ELDON PARK, chairman of the
judiciary committee, termed the
constitution unworkable because
the purpose of the class council
was vague and the means for
carrying out the purpose were in
adequate. Present at the meeting were
Ted James, president of the
senior class; Jim Collins, vice
president of the senior class; Bill
De Vries, vice president of the
junior class, and Ellsworth Du
Teau, president of the University
Alumni Association.
The class officers defined the
purpose of the council as being to
increase loyalty to the University
through encouraging class spirit.
Park pointed out that the Uni
versity was too diversified and de
partmentalized to form an effec
tive organization based on classes
He said that loyalty to the Unt
versity could best- be obtained by
strengthening and uniting loyalty
within the colleges.
MARV STROMER, member of
the Council and junior class presi
dent, moved that a committee of
three be appointed to work with
class officers in forming a con
stitution that would be approved

The growing disunity of the
Kepublican party and the nation

"Eisenhower's commanding per

Don Knutzen, state chairman
or the Young Democrats, in

Beutel said he believes the
"world to be on the edge of de
struction, since physical science
has outrun political science."
The University needs more radi
cals on the faculty to stir up
student discussion, he added.
In conclusion, Beutel com

Clyde Mitchell. He mentioned a
recent article in the "Saturday
