Tells IFC 'Mot Beginning Moral Crusade1
Chancellor Clifford M. Hardin reminded members of the Inter-Fraternity Council
of existing regulations concerning student use of alcoholic beverages Thursday after
The reminder came on
Policy on Student Use of Alcoholic Beverages," released by the Chancellor and Board
of Regents. The message, distributed to organization presidents Thursday, was com
piled by an administrative-student committee which has met several times since the
beginning of the school year. ;
In his talk, Dr. Hardin noted the
statement was not the beginning
of a moral crusade, but a matter
of policy. He noted that his sum
mer travel throughout the state
and conversations with parents of
students and prospective students
had resulted in some disturbing
comments regarding drinking on
the University campus. Hardin
said comments of this type had
also reached members of the
Board of Regents, who decided to
take action on the matter.
'Comments Mostly Rumor'
The Chancellor said that 'many
of the comments were based solely
on rumor which had become ex
aggerated, though others were
based on fact. He noted some
parents had decided not to send
their children to the University
on the strength of these stories.
Dr. Hardin said University or
ganizations of all types were re
ceiving the printed statements and
he and several other administra
tive officers were making personal
explanation of the rules on alco
holic beverages to groups other
By bringing student attention to
the existing rules concerning drink
ing, the Chancellor said, the ad
ministration hopes to gain the co
operation and support of a res
ponsible segment of the University
population in removing the causes
of the rumors which have dis
turbed Nebraska parents.
"Actually," Dr. Hardin noted,
"the number of student violations
is quite small when compared to
the total enrollment. Many of the
bad impressions about the Univer
sity campus result from the few
students who do break the rules
about alcoholic beverages."
After the Chancellor's talk, the
floor was opened to questions con
cerning the Policy. Dean of Stu
dent Affairs J. Philip Colbert, As
sociate Dean of Student Affairs
Frank M. Hallgren, Administrative
Assistant to the Chancellor Bruce
Nicoll and Dr. Hardin explained
the administrative view on specific
instances. Listed below are some
of the questions and their answers:
Question: What about private
parties held in Lincoln homes
where there is drinking?
Answer: So long as the party is
sponsored by individuals for in
dividuals and not by an organi
zation for the entire organization,
the University has no jurisdiction
over them, though this type of
thing is discouraged. This would
apply only in cases where parties
are held off the campus.
Question: What about drinking
at parties sponsored by organiza
tions, i.e. fraternities, sororities,
Answer: University regulations
strictly prohibit drinking at parties
of this type whether on or off the
Question- What will happen to
organizations guilty of violations of
the University Policy?
Answer: Presidents of the orga
nization involved will be
called in for a conference with the
administration. There is no set
punishment for breaking the rules;
each violation is considered on the
individual characteristics of the

The Outside World
French Premier Warns 'Assembly
French Premier Mendes-France presented the nine-nation London
agreement on German rearmament to the French National Assembly
with a warning that "the time has passed when German rearmament
Mendes-France stood by while the Assembly rejected the European
Defense Community plan, but now he is expected to stake the life of
his government on approval of the London agreement which restores
sovereignty to West Germany and provides for rearmament.
"Can we retreat into isolation and allow German rearmament
without limitations or controls?" Mendes-France demanded.
Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotovs proposal to withdraw
occupation forces from Germany and to bid for four-power talks
on unifying Germany were spurned by Adenauer's government and
by British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden Thursday.
A French Foreign Office spokesman said the United States,
Britain and France would listen to constructive Russian proposals
on Germany, but that no such proposals had been found in Molotov'a
speech Wednesday night.
The only interested party in favor of the proposals was the
German Socialists in the German Parliament.
Ike Adds Speech
President Eisenhower had decided to increase his personal cam
paign for the election of a Republican Congress in November by
making at least one more major political speech than he had planned.
Vice President Richard Nixon said Thursday.
Nixon said he had conferred with the President on the political
situation and had told him that if the party "continues vigorous
campaigning" it will win continued control of the house.
However, information sources close to the President suggest

and not the instigator of one, she
continued. Miss Fleeson feels,
however, that the people want a
strong president whom they can
feel is their champion.
Farm Program Issne
Probably the most outstanding
single issue, she said, will be economic-unemployment
ing farm income. The farm pro
gram has had no fresh, creativt
thinking in the past few years,
she said, adding that we must de
cide for ourselves if we are to
consider farming as a way of life
or an industry.
"This is the first time in many
years we have had a business
man's administration," Miss Fee
son stated. Businessmen who have
been appointed to top jobs are
finding out that 'bureaucrats work
like dogs,' she continued. Natur
ally the government is much more
favorable to business, she added.
"The effects of McCarthyism
will be felt by the people for a
long time," Fleeson declared,
"for he has taught us to distrust
each other." Because of McCar
thy, many Southern and conserva
tive Demos who supported Eisen
hower are returning to the Demo
cratic ranks, she said.
Miss Fleeson said that although
Adali Stevenson is now the front
runner for the Democratic party
presidential nomination, the. elec
tion is still two years off. There
will be other ambitious people
who will be struggling for control
of the Democratic nominating
machinery, even though Stevenson
