Lest IVe forget
Saturday, regardless of the climate, was a
good day for Nebraska. We beat Missouri,
favored over us by at least 6 points. We saw
one of the hardest fighting, best coached Ne
braska football 'teams "do it again.!' We all
gave the football team the very best in support
end enthusiasm. We all watched a short,
stocky man in a wide brimmed hat walk across
the field to congratulate the losing coach.
All of these "we saws" were healthy signs for
this University, but the last was perhaps the
The American Game
Election results are now a matter of record
and it seems almost certain that the Demo
; crats will control both Houses of Cdngress.
The strong Democratic vote predicted did not
occur, but the substantial gains of the party out
of power have made the Republicans, all the
way from Eisenhower down, take a good look
at what the future might hold.
Here in Nebraska, the Republicans made a
. . clean sweep of all major offices. This was
expected by all but the most hopeful Demo
crats. According to final returns, it seems the
voters in this state kept to a strict party
ticket. In all state-wide contests, majorities
were wihin a few thousand votes of each
other, as were the minority votes. Going to Con
gress from Nebraska will be six conservative
Republicans, some of them very capable men,
who can be expected to vote along lines accept
able to the majority of the statae's citizens.
There can be no denying that Ezra Taft Benson's
policy of flexible farm pr'xe supports won a
vote of confidence. ,
A few weeks ago The Nebraskan promised
to cover the national congressional campaign
and present the issues, both pro and con. The
expressed goal of this paper was to arouse
. an "intelligent interest" in the election. An
interest has been stimulated. Whether or not
it was by this newspaper is debatable.
The predicted "mudslinging and off color
politics" abounded in many races.
Fortunately, Nebraska was relatively free of
these "below the belt punches." Surprisingly
enough, the expected apathy and lack of interest
was far smaller than anticipated. The Ne
braskan feels it has been initiated to the ways
of politics, at least a little better than it was.
As for the future, the following observations
must be made.
TIt is now time for the country to settle down.
Matters of vital importance must be dealt with.
There is a real need for everyone to get behind
the new Congress and help it work though the
maze of legislation that is waiting.
Late on election day, each losing candidate
sent a message to his opponent, the winner,
conceding defeat and wishing the elected man
good luck. For the most part, these messages
appeared to be sincere. Part of the way of the
American game of politics is to jump on the
bandwagon of the winner and help him.
There can be no better advice to the interested
and alert public than to jump on the bandwagon
and try to help get things moving. As important
as intelligent voting is, a keen interest in
between election issues is more important.
The votes have been counted and some are
.being recounted from Tuesday's political hassel
at the polls.
It is interesting how the predictors and vote-
watchers theorize about the election outcomes
. and indicatiins. For example, one TV news-
caster commented that people seemed to be
voting for those candidates whom they knew
or were familiar with rather than what party
they, belonged to. '
Cited as an example was Averell Harriman
.in New York. Harriman gained nation-wide
"publicity two years ago as a prospect for the
Democratic presidential nominee. No doubt
. about it, Harriman's name was plastered all
over newspapers during the Democratic Con
vention. But one contradiction to this theory lay in
the defeat of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr.
bearer of the name that wielded a magic in
fluence over voters for so many years.
Again a shining example of publicity-made
candidates was Jummy Roosevelt in California
although his publicity was considered by many
to be a disadvantage rather than beneficial. But
all the trouble in the divorce courts got Jimmy's
name out to the public. -
In Utah the last minute substitution of Dr.
Henry Dixon for Douglas Stringfellow by the
Utah Republican party was thought hazardous
but Dixon came through with flying colors.
...That switch over in candidates got tremendous
play in the Utah newspapers.
But in Iowa the incumbent Democrat, Guy
Gillette, was whipped soundly by Republican
Thomas Martin. Gillette was for years the Iowa
stalwart whose name made headlines during
sessions of Congress.
Of course, Alan Shivers swept to victory in
Texas, even though he supported Eisenhower
in 1952 astonishing to many Southerners. But
in Michigan, Homer Ferguson, old-guard Re
publican, was squeezed out by Democrat Patrick
Other examples could be given supporting the
'candidate-familiarity theory" or nullifying it.
But for whatever reason the voters voted as
they did, it is clear that publicity does help

most important. Many times last year, J.
William Glassford was on the receiving end of
those, "Too bad, you played a good game . . ."
conversations at midfield. So many times, in
fact, almost an entire second semester featured
headlines of a new effort to see Glassford
deposed as head coach and leave the University.
Though the "campaign" of last winter and
spring seems a long time past, even foggy
through the recent haze of winning ways, The
Nebraskan believes its readers should think
back and recall some of the incidents that took
Bill Glassford was one of the most derided
individuals ever on this campus. Some of the
statements made about and to him would startle
even the most hardened, professional political
mud slinger. We have seen few efforts that
reached the levels of those to force a man to
resign his position or to have him replaced.
What The Nebraskan would like its readers
to remember is that throughout that hectic
period, Bill Glassford kept quiet. He didn't
meet statement with statement; he did not try
to outsensationalize the sensational. He worked
quietly to make certain the Univresity had a
good team this year even when he was not
sure he would be the head coach when the
1954 Husker teams trotted onto the playing
It seems we had more of a man in the head
coach position than any of us realized, first
as an individual who kept quiet in the face of
even the most outlandish claims about him,
second as a man who, with the right material,
can turn out good football players.
This week this same man will be on the
sidelines at Kansas when Nebraska goes after
what appears to be a certain win. If the team
does the expected he will be "in" more solidly
than ever. If we falter, fall victim to an upset
it's up to the student body to make certain
Glassford doesn't go through the same attack
he did before.
Not that insults could harm him much he's
seen and heard the worst of them,' but the
effects of another "oust Glassford" campaign
would lower our prestige for loyalty and faith
fulness through the nation and conference. We
owe it to ourselves, the team and our coach
to show the outside world that University fans
are more than the fair weather variety.
It's Only Courtesy
Friday the University will be host to more
than 300 high school journalism students at the
annual Nebraska High School Press Association
It will be the first time on the University
campus for many of them, and they will un
doubtedly be vague on names and places of
the various buildings. O? course, the mostr
logical procedure for finding an unknown build
ing is to ask someone who would know which
would be a University student.
They will probably flood the Crib in the
Union, so be on guard for the chatter and
nervous giggles that accompany their youth.
If there are no booths available it would be
courteous for some University student to tell
them the Round-Up Room is open at the other
end of the hall.
The Univresity School of Journalism holds this
convention each year not only to promote Ultra
high school competition and discussion under
college-level guidance but also to inform high
school students about opportunities the Univer
sity can offer them in their futures. It is a
public relations move and a sincere effort to
recruit future University students.
The School of Journalism can only provide
the mechanics for University promotion with
these high schoolers. It is up to the University
students who come in contact with them dur
ing the convention to do the rest make them
feel they want to attend the University be
cause of its friendliness and courtesy, not only
If you see a high school student Friday
just say "Hi!" Yeu'd be surprised what an
impression it makes. J. H.

Following Tuesday's election an interesting
note is that Sam Rayburn, speaker of the
House elect, will begin serving his twenty-second
term in the House of Representatives. This
makes Rayburn's forty-fourth year in Congress.
No "Family" Feud
The young. man and his small son entered the
door to the precinct poll just behind an attractive
young woman. They both walked over to the
registration desk and stood in line. Smiling
sweetly at the young man and woman the
election supervisor said, "It's nice you both
agree on your politics." Both the man and the
young woman looked startled and exchanged
furtive glances. The young man blushed and
said "We're not together." . The young woman
quickly grabbed her ballot and ducked into the
nearest voting booth while the supervisor
meekly sought the water fountain.

If one is interested in spending
a pleasant two hours in the nether
land of the very, very rich and
the very, very illogical, I would
suggest seeing "Sabrina." It's
stars are "colossal" Audrey Hep
burn, Humphrey Bogart and Wil
liam Holden its costumes lavish,
a few of its situations extremely
funny, its plot absurdly trite. Very
briefly, it deals with the irrespon
sible son of a wealthy industrialist
(William Holden), his hard-working
older brother (Humphrey Bogart),
and a chauffeur's daughter (Aud
rey Hepburn) and the complica
tions which arise when the chauf
feur's daughter, Sabrina, comes
back from a two year stay in Paris
a very beautiful young thing. After
a series of events the usual boy-meets-girl,
other-boy-gets-girl circle ev
erything turns out fine.
My main criticism of the movie
was the lack of quality in the
script of the thing. One must admit
that not even really good actors
can poll comedy out of nothing,
and "Sabrina" had to have colos
sal actors or it would have fallen
flat. The very wide-eyed, wistful
Sabrina was a rather diluted ver
sion of the lovely princess that Miss
Hepburn portrayed in "Roman
Holiday a sort of angel placed by
circumstances above a garage in
stead of on a cloud. William Holden
made the situations In which he
was placed quite amusing, but in
the hands of a less competent
actor the situations would have
been fantastically dull. Humphrey
Bogart was, as usual, Humphrey
Bogart. It seemed to me that
through the entire movie one was
made aware of the ultra-equipment
of the set in order to cover
up for the lack of really good
comedy. Let us say the plot un
wound not quite as smoothly as
the film it was recorded on rather
than flowing easily from situation,
It leaped moose-like from epi
sode to episode.
I will say, however, that there
was one very funny characteriza
tionthe character of the wealthy
father. Several times he saved the
audience from boredom with won
derful little bits of business smok
ing a cigar in his older son's closet
to avoid letting his wife know he
still smoked, struggling with an
olive caught in the bottom of the
jar and mixing himself a martini
(rather loudly) in the. midst of an
executive-board meeting. As a
whole, the movie began, there was
some filler of over-worked comedy
situations, and it ended. If you go
to it and let your imagination run
riot, it will, I am almost certain,
delight you; but don't try to an
alyze or understand the plot, just
accept it good-naturedly.
K-State Students Paint
Initials Over KU Campus
By JANCY CARMAN
The Daily Kansan, student paper
at the University of Kansas, re
ports that 39 K-State students
climbed up the "Hill" and painted
in large lavender letters in front
of Strong Hail the initials "KS".
The initials were also printed on
the Student Union. The vandalism
also involved a "sloppy" paint job
on Jimmy Green, a campus statue.
The police caught uo with the stu
dents as they were letting air out
of tires in a residential area.
The 39 were released to the cus
tody of the K-State dean of stu
dents, who will confer with the
Kansas University dean of stu
dents. This destruction violates
a peace pact that exists between
the two schools.
