Compos Marital Problems
Campus Capers
By Bruce Conner
As the facts stack up the University should
hare no fears about the support of a building
program which would make available Univer
sity housing for married students.
The new proposal, now pending in the Leg
islature, would be an added burden to the Uni
versity budget in the event the bousing finance
would be included in the budget and not pro
vided for by revenue bonds as is suggested.
However, this field of University planning is
another essential which must be realized by
the Legislature r- its review of present and
future University eeds.
Mr. Selleck voiced worry over the possibility
that married students would not take advantage
of University housing. The University could not
force married students to live in University
bousing units and in the event married stu
dents did not take advantage of the housing,
the University would be left holding the bag.
Another point against the bousing program
was that the University would be competing
with local bousing facilities a fact which even
if true would be a shoddy excuse for rejecting
the University housing plan.
Whatever the immediate possibilities are con
cerning a University housing program for mar
ried students, the administration should dismiss
the fear that such a housing program would
not be supported. The University Dames, wives
of students attending the University, have made
a survey which bears out the opinion that such
a housing program is needed. With the growth
ef the Lincoln Air Force Base, local bousing
availabilities are expected to become more crit
ical than they are right now. There is also a
growing trend for students attending college to
obtain a married status during their undergrad
uate years and each year more graduates are
returning for post-graduate courses, plus a fam
ily. There is also an increase in the number of
veterans returning to college following their
stint in the service.
If the University could provide housing for
these students at a reasonable cost it should
go ahead with the building of housing units for
married students. It is the cost to the students
which will determine support of the program.
Married students are not in a position to pay
extravagant prices for housing while they are
in school. Most married students have to cut
corners on expenses anyway and usually both
husband and wife are working part or full time
to make ends meet. The GI Bill offers little
financial security to the married student and
scholarship grants do not provide enough for
the married student to pay a competitive hous
ing price in the local markets.
The financial advantage to the married stu
dent plus the convenience of living close to the
University campus plus the growing need for
some form of housing provision for married
students either University or locally sponsored
seems to be as good an indication as any that
such a program should be instituted.
Married students are just as much a respon
sibility of the University as single students and
much could be done via a housing program to
increase the incentive for married students to
attend the University of Xebraska.-J. H.
'ear Is A Bad Reason
A proposal to encourage a visit to the U.S.
by a Soviet delegation of college newspaper
editors has created a raging controversy oa
the UCLA campus.
Ia 19iv3 three TJS. college editors toured Rus
sia, and in return the Russians applied for a
visa to visit the U.S. The State Department re
fused the visa on the grounds that since it was
summer, colleges and universities would not
be open. The State Department suggested that
the Russians reapply after colleges had ex
tended inviiatiocs and vere open for the fall
Swarthmore CoIIegem Pennsylvania has
since then written U.S. colleges, including
UCLA, encouraging them to extend an invita
tion to the 12-man Soviet delegation and thus
aiding the delegation to obtain visas. The Rus
sians have not reapplied for visas.
The proposal at UCLA was defeated by a
student vote, but not before contrary opinions
were heatedly exchanged. Investigations by the
UCLA administration revealed that the Rus
sians who would visit the U S. would not be
college editors in the same sense as
are U.S. college editors. They would be, in
fact, men far beyond college age, hired by the
government to newspapers which are not
literally coQe?? newspapers.
There are, of course, two sides to the crea
tion, which in the final analysis will be de
cided by the State Department and not indi
vidual colleges. It is difficult to be over-optimistic
by thinking that such a tour would pro
mote greater understanding. These delegates
appear to be tools of the Soviet state, not likely
to be too receptive to new ideas of college
journalism. The question presents itself, why
do the Soviets want to come? The first reaction
is to assume ulterior motives on ySe part of the '
Russians, and this is dangerous. This was the
reason opponents to the proposal at UCLA took
their stand; they tagged the delegation, as a
well-trained group of propagandists who would
note seeking an objective analysis of student
Although the Russians themselves are to
blame for this distrust, it is still not the tra
ditional American position to take. As students
we are not in a position to know that such a
delegation would be harmful. At the same time,
it is conceivable that the plan would accomp
lish something of value. The State Department
alone is in a position to assume final authority.
University students can afford to swallow all
that they know of Russian motives and methods
and at least make overtures of friendliness.

It is obvious from these incidents and from
the existence of such a thing as Brotherhood
Week that something is wrong. Sociologists,
psychologists, and especially professional peo
ple in the field of human relations work have
searched for methods to improve conditions.
They have come up with a number of devices
and techniques which are probably cuite ef
fective. But actually the answer is so elemental that
it is not realized. It was actually given long
ago by St. John the Evangelist in such strong
simple and forceful language as to make it aC
the more striking when compared wiih his
usually cryptic, metaphorical manner of ex
pression: "For in one spirit were we all baptized into
one body, whether Jews or Gentiles, whether
bond or free; and in one spirit have we beea
all made to drink ... but now there are many
members indeed, but one body.
"God has tempered the body together, giving
to that which wanted the more abundant honor.
That there might be no schism in the body;
but the members might be mutually careful one
for another. And if one member suffer anything,
all the members suffer with it; or if one mem
ber glory, all the members rejoice with it."
(I Cor. XII; 24-27).
The phrase which seems to centals the
weight ef the message is "The members might
fee mutaaEy carefal one for the ether."
We must take aa active interest in one an
other out of love. This proposal k much more
dynamic thaa that of brotherhood. It requires
that we not only do no harm, cor is it satisfied
with indifference.

A few weeks ago in this column we had a brief lesson la chem
istry. Today we take np another attractive science-medicine.
Medicine was invented in 1066 by a Greek named Hippocrates.
He soon attracted around him a group of devoted disciples whom
he called "doctors". The reason he called them "doctors" was
that they sat around a dock all day. Some fished, some just
dozed in the noonday sun. In truth, there was little else for them
to do, because disease was not invested until 1492.
After that doctors became very busy, but, it must be reported,
their knowledge of medicine was lamentably meagre. They
knew only one treatment- change of climate. For example, a
French doctor would send all his patients to Switzerland; a
Swiss doctor, on the other hand, would send all his patients to
France. By 1789 the entire population of France was living in
Switzerland, and vice versa. This later became known as the
Black Tom Explosion.
Not until 1S24 did medicine, a we know it, come into being'.
In that year in the little Bavarian village of Pago-Pago an
elderly physician named Winko Sigafoos discovered the hot
water bottle. He was, of course, burned as a witch, but his soft

disguised as a feather boa, made hi way to America, where he
invented the blood stream.
