. terhaps tomorrow will be different.
( Perhaps we'll see a good football game.
Perhaps we'll see two team playing their hearts
Perhaps we'll see fans cheering their team
Tfvery once in awhile.
Perhaps, after the game, one of the Huskers
'won't be prompted to say as he did after the
Hawaii game "It's sure hell to play football
when you Tcnow that your own fans aren't be
And maybe one of the fans won't mention
as he did after the Hawaii game "It's sure hell
trying to sit in the grandstand when the boys
aren't playing football."
Perhaps. But you never know about football,
games, players, officials or fans.
However, one thing is certain. Saturday's game
will give the Huskers a chance, a really good
chance, to prove themselves to the fans, the
students and the sportswriters.
The Huskers almost beat Ohio State. But that
game was 2500 miles away. And everyone says
the Buckeyes haven't near the team this year
that they had last. Besides, it was two weeks ago.
Nebraska beat K-State, 16-0. But everyone said
the Wildcats were weak this year.
Tomorrow we play a fine team, one of the
powers in the Southwest Texas A&M. "One
of the best teams we'll play this season," said
Coach Bill Glassford.
The Huskers will be playing before one of the
biggest crowds ever to file into Memorial Sta
dium. They'll be hosting a team they've never
faced before. The members of 71 bands will be
watching from thfe bleacher seats.
But the game won't really mean much on the
record books. It isn't going to affect the out
come of the Big Seven race. As far as statistics
go, the contest doesn't teally mean much one
way or the other.
The game will be a big game in a more im
It will be an indication, and an important in
dication, of just how good the Huskers really are,
But more important still it will be an indica
tion of just what kind of treatment the team,
the coach and his staff will receive during the
remainder of the season.
Not only from the sportswriters, but from stu
dents, fans and people outstate as well.
Let's hope tomorrow is another day. B. B.
Perhaps another University tradition has bit
the dust of ignominy the victim of petty bicker
ing and Involved red tape. And it is readily ad
mitted that the University has few enough tradi
tions. A migration to Missouri was on the calendar
of many University students and was regarded
with the same amount of anticipation as those
dates proclaiming Thanksgiving and Christmas
recesses. Most students, believed, as is regularly
believed, that each year the migration is to Mis
souri or Colorado, depending upon which game
was away from home.
The Innocents plan on the usual half-time cere
mony with the Missouri senior men's honorary
at which time a victory bell is exhanged. The
student body planned to make a weekend of it
and watch the two teams which put on one of the
best contests in Big Seven play last year.
Many and most of these plans will not be
changed. Many students will travel to Columbia
and in accordance with the wishes of Coach Bill
Glassford they will support the Huskers in what
apepars to be a much tougher game than the
one which is scheduled to be held in Ames. But,
it won't be the same as two years ago. It will be
an unofficial migration. Why?
First of all, the band and the cheerleaders
will be at the Iowa State game which will be
held in Ames. This has a great deal to do with
the general dampening of spirits, but the real
blow more appropriately labled a death blow
was delivered by the Associated Women Student
Premature to announcement by the Student
Council or the Council migration committee,
AWS decided that the Migration, official or un
official, was to go to Ames.
AWS ruled that a free weekend could be taken
to Ames, but if women were to go to Columbia,
it would count as a regular overnight. Under
the recently tightened rules, a trip to Missouri
would rule out attendance at many of the Uni
versity's traditional social events.
In other words, AWS decided that they would
be the sponsors of an official, unofficial migra
tion this year and tell the nvomen where they
could go, and in effect, where they could not go.
Perhaps AWS considered the attractions of the
two cities involved. It is readily admitted that
there is much more temptation abiding in Co
lumbia just as it is admitted that Ames is
much more of the typical Midwestern college
town. Perhaps AWS is trying to shepherd its
charges in the ways of righteousness but a way
that many of the flock don't choose to follow.
This AWS action is quite presumptuous to say
the very least. As far as The Nebraskan knows,
the Student Council is still responsible for the
activity of the general student body, both male
and female. It is probably too petty to suppose
that AWS is bitter about their point system being
superceded by the Student Council's leadership
Here we have another unfortunate, and seem
ingly uncalled for, situation that has been caused
by the lack of planning and petty jealousies. It
is something that should, and could, be avoided
in the future.
As for the near present, the Innocents will be
in Missouri and so will a large portion of the stu
dent body. It seems that the team would rather
have us there. AWS members may travel to
Ames, but The Nebraskan staff will be in Co
lumbia. The Nebraskan, with the permission of Stu
dent Council and AWS, would like to advocate
a "movement" to Columbia whether it be of
ficial or unofficial. See you there .-S. 3.

specific sanction and

The enigma that is French do

the United Nations like a dead
Angered by the decision of the
General Asseihbly to discuss the
problem of Algerian nationalism,
Foreign Minister Antoine Pinay
led the French delegation in a
walk-out as dramatic as that
staged by the Russians five years
Where has this courage of con
viction been during the four years
of civil conflict in North Africa?
Frenchmen, Berbers and Arabs
alike have died by the thousands
in North Africa while politicians
wrangled over technical delays.
France now challenges the deci
sion of the UN and scoffs at the
Iuwii.iikii iiiiiiiv "i - '-0rnnuM
principle of peaceful discussion
upon which the UN is built. Why
has not this determination been
used to settle the dispute in Al
geria? Unlike neighboring Tunisia and
Morocco, Algeria is incorporated
into Metropolitan France as a de
partment. Algeria has about the
same status as Hawaii would if it
were the 49th American state. It
is this political set-up which has
prompted France to declare the
nationalistic agitation of the Alger
ians to be a domestic question.
Domestic issues are outside the
jurisdiction of the United Nations
by statement of the Charter. By
pleading "d omestic question"
France had been able, until Fri
day, to prevent a public airing of
her colonial rule.
In actuality, and according to ac
cepted usage of the terms, France
is correct in assuming Algeria to
be a domestic problem. A with
drawal from the United Nations,
however, makes the Paris govern
ment look like a school-boy throw-
ing a tantrum. Having picked up
his marbles and gone home, M
Pinay has only played into the
hands of the USSR by splitting
Admittedly, M. Pinay was act
ing on the orders of Premier Ed
gar Faure who apparently had
both ears to the ground of politics.
As Eric Severeid put it, "It is im
possible to hold both ears to the
ground without burying one's head
in the sand."
Probably a violent reaction to
the UN decision was all that would
placate a National Assembly of
manjfV'iil -parties and 544 ex
moderation "would have brought
a collapse of the Faure govern
ment. At least we know such an eventu
ality was close enough to prevent
M. Faure from functioning as a
statesman and to ensure his be
having as a politician.
It is ironic indeed that freedom
conscious and individualistic
Frenchmen chose to fling at the
UN the same tactics Hitler, Mus
solini and Tojo used to strangle
the League of Nations.
Behind The Eightbal!:
The Story Of My Life
Or, 'As Time Goes By'
By Clyde Vatt
I Imagine that some day I shall
be referred to as the late Mr. Vatt.
My reputation for habitually
being unpunctual Is quite spotless.
In fact, right offhand, the only
time I can remember coming close
to being on time was my last year
in high school at the commence
ment exercises but then I forgot
my tassel and had to go back after
My phenomenon of tardiness is
really quite interesting and should
be examined critically. I can still
remember, when I was home in
Dismal Seepage, 0., how my
father and I used to get ready for
We would come into the house,
perhaps fresh from "digging

lot of "digging around the shrub

or manipulating jackstraws on the

Then, moving furiously, my dad
and I would streak for the bath
room, slosh water all over' the
place, and appear at the table,
quite breathless and looking like
the butt end of a battering ram.
Mother would look up and say,
"I'm sorry, but your food is stone

but their food Is always "cold."
The menfolks' food is always

ways "stone cold." This bothers
This early training might, per
haps, be the reason for my con
stitutional inability to get anywhere
on time. I don't know really. I do
know, however, that I don't neces
sarily mean to be late.
It's just that each time I have to
be somewhere, an arm of Fate
catches one of my bony shoulder
blades, turns me in the wrong di
rection, and sends me thither with
a healthy shove.
Just the other day I was walking
down to the Journal-Star with
some copy for the Rag. Moving
along aimlessly, with the creeping
shuffle of the Neanderthal Man, I
noticed a group of men drilling
with some sort of instrument on a
large stone building.
The men, with their snappy, bus
inesslike manner, and the drill,
drumming out a hypnotic staccato
onto the cement, captured my at
tention and, leaning contentedly
against the nearest mailbox, I
watched, fascinated, with my fin
gertips pressed gently together.
Finally, the men stopped, disas
sembled their equipment, and,
when one happened to back the
panel truck into me, I started on
my way again. As usual, however,
I was late.
I have one, or should I say, two
methods of defense against inquir
ing eyes or stern looks when I ap
proach my destination late. The
sweet, innocent, self-righteous type
I ' vanquished with a single flourish
and the statement, "Punctuality is
the vice of virtuous women."
The other kind, business-like and
pontifical, I waste no time on and
quell quickly by saying, "Only
those that have nothing better to
do ever get anywhere on time."
I've been thinking about my
plight for some 4jme now. Maybe it
all goes back to early toilet training.
The best lead ever written in
journalism history: "D.a mmit,
king," said the Duchess, "get your
hand off my leg."
Last spring the political circles
. on the NU campus were alive
-with the question of a proposed
rule to limit the number of offices
in activities which can be held by
After several stormy Student
-Council sessions the rule was
passed. One part restricted t h e
number of board positions and of
fices. This part aroused the dis
cussion. Almost unnoticed was another
provision in the r u 1 e which
changed the minimum grade aver
age required for participation in
activities from 5.0 to 5.7.
Now, with the new rule in its first
months of application, a proposal
has been made in the Council to
abolish the rule.
Independent students apparently
favor abolishing the rule entirely.
Many of them feel its sole purpose
was to give more Greeks positions
I do not think this is true.
Independents have held high po
sitions in activities and will con
tinue to do so. I grant that an in
dependent will have to work hard
er because he does not have the
support behind him that a Greek
has. But, nevertheless, he has a
chance which is made better by
the limiting -of the number of posi
tions one person can hold.
I am in favor of the limitation on
activities officeholding because I
believe that college activities
should train students in leadership
and that this training should be
available to as many students as
possible. I favor the limit because
I agree with the principle of pro
tecting the individual from an ex
cessive work load which can result
from holding too many offices. As
a third point, 1 think the limitation
will favor the independent in the
However, I cannot accept the
raising of the average requirement
to 5.7. This part of the rule undoes
what the other portion attempts to
do. The Increased grade average
disqualifies many persons whom
activities, 'through leadership op
portunities, could help.
The "University administration is
perpetually concerned because
many students do not participate
in activities. The increased aver
age requirement will tend only to

places on the grade scale this is
true. However, at the level just
Above five, seven-tenths of a point
can affect many students.
Five is the all-University aver,
age. It is the average required to
be activated in most organized
houses. It is the point at which
"respectable" averages begin. For
these reasons countless stud
ents are content to bring their
average to a few points above five
and let it remain there.
To enforce a requirement of 5.7
would eliminate many students
from the benefits offered by lead
ership in activities. At the same
time the rule would deprive the
major campus activities of the tal
ents of many able leaders.
Such a rule in effect says that the
average student is not good enough
to hold a position in activities. This
idea is contradictory to the
American democratic system to
which the operation of govern
ment and responsibility for public
policy are placed in the hands of
the common people of- the "aver
age." If the average college student
is not acceptable for leadership re
sponsibility, how do the advocates
of the 5.7 rule justify the qualify
ing of below average college stud
ents and non-college educated per
sons to hold the far more import
ant public offices of our nation?

ples of equality and the widening
