Since the opening of grade and high schools
throughout the country several weeks ago, news
organs of all types have released stories high
lighting tho reactions of persons living in states
that have been affected by the Supreme Court
anti-segregation ruling earlier this year. Of
course, there has been considerable agitation
to preserve the old segregated public school
system in the deep South. This was expected;
very few persons familiar with the situations
that brought about the Supreme Court ruling
were much surprised at it.
Persons with varying views on the matter
trf segregation were shocked or pleased with
the different attitudes of state legislators and
executives in their efforts to combat or cooper
ate with the federal ruling. However, there
has always been the question of how far pro
ponents of segregation are prepared to go.
Pro-segregation factions undoubtedly were
happy with the move, in one southern state,
to abolish the public school system in an effort
to combat the Court's ruling; however, anti
segregation groups have received an even better
idea of how far their opponents are prepared
to go,
A newspaper article of September 28 included
this information: "Heated sentiment against
racial integration in public schools mushroomed
throughout lower Delaware Wednesday as
white students continued to boycott classes in
increasing numbers." The story goes on to say
that the boycott began when some 10 Negro
students were admitted to a high school.
This and other happenings like it would
lead the average person to believe high school
students are so imbued with prejudice the act
of merely sitting in a class room with an indi
vidual whose skin is darker than his own is so
The Rise
The Watkins' committee report recommend
ing censure of Senator Joseph R. McCarthy is
an example of congealing trends since the
Army-McCarthy hearings of last spring.
The hard core of intensity generated by
the circus proceedings has since withered, but
in political circles it soon afterwards assumed
the position of an endurance contest in which
neither side could claim victory yet the steam
of battle still hovered over the arena.
Using the Army's own terms, both sides were
forced to refrain for the moment from direct
frontal assault since neither emerged with su
perior strength. Each dug in for a campaign
of attritional warfare fought in the form of
forays and flank raids. But with no hint of a
settlement, truce or compromise.
Even this skirmish-type warfare should have
posed no problem for a man with the bravado
and blasting genius of the Wisconsin senator.
He could whet his Communist axe on the grind
atone of newspaper headlines and begin right
where he left off. But things weren't quite so
simple for Joe.
Before the hearings McCarthy enjoyed almost
complete strategic mobility. He rose to an un
precedented poll popularity at the beginning
of the year. No coalition had been formed
against him. He was free to pinpoint his own
targets and spreadeagle them against the wall.
There were no pressures on his flanks nor any
undercurrents within his own forces. He could
bore in on his objectives then retreat discreetly
to a new area of political pyrotechnics. The
initiative was his.
With the exception of Allen Dulles at the Cen
tral Intelligence Agency and Edward R. Mur
rcrw, CBS news commentator, he was able to
always patch up some kind of hasty settlement
on one front in order to concentrate elsewhere.
Thus, on the same day the Senate confirmed
the Russian ambassadorship of Charles Bohlen,
which McCarthy had fought most vehemently,
he announced the sensational news that he had
successfully negotiated an agreement with the
Greek owners of 242 ships.

repulsive that he would rather stay at home
than go to school.
This is pure bunk.
What appears to be an effort to show that
students cannot bear the thought of non-segregated
schools should fail miserably if other
young people take time to think over the mat
ter. First, it doesn't take much pressure
from any direction to make a high school,
grade or even college student fail to attend
school. Second, the adolescent's desire to con
form to the behavior of others around him is
very strong during the years an Individual
spends in school before coming to a university
or college. Third, a parental order not to
attend school when there is little or no chance
that lengthy makeup work will be assigned is
particularly lucrative, especially when there is
an element of excitement and action about that
Though not a proved fact, intolerance seems
to be almost a direct function of age up to a
point when the proportion becomes inverse
rather than direct. For those who would debate
this, consider the discriminatory feelings of
a five-year-old with those of the man-of-the-woiid
The Nebraskan is very intolerant of those
adults who seek to manipulate their juniors
toward ends which might be unlike those of the
younger generation. Also, The Nebraskan is
equally intolerant of an effort to compound an
already difficult situation by adults by using
younger persons.
This boycott of schools in Delaware smacks
strongly of this type of activity. If adults in
that state want to continue segregation, let
them campaign for those ends, but they should
not attempt to hide a shoddy end behind their
school children. T. W.
And Fall
But now, with the reverse of the coin, Mc
Carthy's opponents are no longer divided among
themselves. Since the hearings, an informal
coalition with a general clearing house in the
White House has been formalizing into a
farmidable, unified front. From that focal
point come coordinated assaults.
In a long series of events Clifford Case, Re
publican candidate for senator in New Jersey,
made a definite stand against McCarthy. He
won in the primary. Senator Flanders intro
duced his proposal for a simple vote of censure
against McCarthy. The proposal was the spark
triggering the Watkins committee and subse
quently the special session of Congress to re
view the censure charges.
The important thing to be noted, however, is
not that Senator McCarthy will or will not be
censured though disapproval by a closely-knit
family of men such as the United States Senate
could be damaging. The important thing is that
the junior senator from Wisconsin no longer
has the initiative. He must defend as well as
attack. He cannot devote full strength to
offensive operations but he must fortify his own
bastions and protect his own ranks. He is being
harassed from many sides. He cannot be sure
where the next attack will spring forth. His
inner core is still unshaken but fringe allies are
dropping off along the way.
The opposition has not only gained numbers,
courage, and daring, but they now have a
unified central force. And perhaps even more
significant, if a leader comes along with plans
for an attack he is given support, advice, tacti
cal assistance, and a media of communication.
No longer will a Harold Stassen or Walter
Bedell Smith make a stand individually and
be ordered to abandon it.
No longer do people believe McCarthy's song
and dance, "You are either for me or a
friend of the Communists."
McCarthy has nearly circled the circumference
of the sphere he has been traveling. He is
definitely on the decline. B. B.

The role of the reporter on a

A reporter must be able to gather
news and compile it accurately so
as to speed up the work of the
other staff members.
On The Nebraskan a student has
a particular advantage. A report
