For the greater part of its fifty-odd years of publica
tion, The Nebraskan has used this last issue before the
Thanksgiving holidays to make a last entreaty for stu
dents to be thankful rather than only relieved when
Thanksgiving rolled around. These words on being
thankful were written with one purpose in mind, to try
to make students think on more serious things than the
next term paper date, hour examinations after the rest
period or the big party scheduled the eveningof the first
day at home.
Whether the attempts have been successful or not
in the past or will be this time is a matter of question.
Whether we give thanks to our parents, a god, a gov
ernment or to the good green 'dollars that keep us in
school, all of us could do well to be grateful.
For the pseudo-individualists who are strong in their
belief they are what and where they are because of their
own ability, let them be thankful for life itself. Though
they may do great things with that life, the debt remains.
For the student who is putting himself through this
University who feels a sting of bitterness toward those
who are not and feels no gratitude toward the world, let
him be grateful for a government which allows him to
work and learn, let him be grateful to the someone who
had money and established scholarships.
For the wealthy man's son or daughter who comes to
school as a matter of course, let him be grateful to the
someone who made sacrifices and worked to accumulate
the material wealth he now enjoys. Let him be grateful
for that chance of birth that brought him into the privi
And for the rest of us who fall into the great gulf
between these two extremes, let us be thankful that we
are where we are.
May we all be thankful. vThe world, with all its
faults, is a good place to be and we are here, literally on
top of it. T.w.

the part of the COA.
In a report released shortly after

of the COA to comply with the
following rules: 1) notify the Stu

on which the election is to be held.
2) provide persons to operate tha

Mann said, "ROTC cadets did
operate the polls, and faculty

they were not seated at the ballot

ing the third charge, Mann also
noted that faculty members were
present most of the time while
