Mcbraskan Editorials:
i Recently, a Nebraska editorial pointed out
tbat, according to all available information, at
Wart one-fifth of the University population con-
" ls5f of married students. Since information on
married students is incomplete and does not
Include marriages since September, the figures
art obvious!? higher.
During an Independent survey in which forty
couples were interviewed personally, nearly all
of them indicated a desire for activities which
would fit their needs and interests. At present,
they pointed out, the University offers few
organisations of this kind.
Investigation of this problem showed that
there are no University sponsored activities par
ticularly intended for married students and their
The question invariably arises, "Why dca't the
married students themselves start a club?"
The answer might be indicated by the fact that
most of those interviewed said they did not
know mora than one or two other student couples
and had no way of getting acquainted with
Items in college papers from other schools
show that various types of clubs and facilities
Fine Record
One of the largest intercollegiate competitions
f the year took place last week on the Uni
versity campus. University teams came out on
or near the top, and compiled a record of 25
wins and vt losses. It is doubtful if anyone
knew very much about it.
This competition was the 16th annual Univer
sity Intercollegiate Debate and Discussion Con
ference, which drew lis teams including more
than 300 indiv'dr kjg from $4 schools in a nine
state area.
'or dot ten One-Filth
are provided at other colleges and universities
At some, there are clubs for wives based on
those colleges in which the largest number of
married students are normally enrolled, such
as Engineers Wives, Geolcgy Wives, Voc-Ag
wives, to mention a few.
Other schools simply have a student wives
club. Some of these plan activities for couples,
others seemed to be confined to wives.
The Student Unions on some campuses seem
to be active in providing facilities for married
students. Some plan "Pot Luck" suppers, others
provide baby sitting services during special
events, with volunteers from various groups do
ing the sitting.
It is obvious that not all of these ideas are
possible or practical at the University. The ad
ministration has already taken the first step in
the proposal for the first units of housing for
married students. This was one of the things
the interviewed couples pointed out as one of
their most pressing needs.
In addition, it should be possible for the Uni
versity to make a study of the situation with
an eye toward seeing what else can be done
either by the University itself or by recommen
dations to some other group such as the Union.
First, it is necessary that the University take
cognizance of the number of married students
and the problems they face. It must be determ
ined what kind of services these students want,
because it will do little good to initiate any
program which they will not support.
It would seem that the problem is not so
much that the administration does not care about
its large married student population, but rather
that it does not realize bow great the problem
is. If this is the case, the University should find
out. L.S.
The University bad one of its finest debate
records, emerging with superior ratings being
given to six individuals and three teams. Tbe
six University teams compiled their 25-5 record
ia six rounds of debate against top college
teams in the area.
B was tba largest debate tournament ever held
at the University. Even fraternity bouse dining
rooms were conscripted to provide rooms for
the teams to debate.
Responsibility far the conference rested on
Donald Olson, director of debate, and Brace
Kendall, director of forensics. They did a fine
job, and the University should be proud of the
tournament it sponsored.
, The conference also pointed cut the high Qual
ity of the University debate squad. Their ex
cellent record ia this tournament is a good in
dication of this quality.
2t also shows tbat perhaps &e University is
spawning a team which bring a little prestige
back to its school outside the more commonly
recognized athletic circle of competition.
The only thing wrong with the success of
Che tournament is Chat no one outside those im
mediately concerned was aware what was go
ing en.
The fine record of the University's teams
wil go largely ennrvtimi, The success of tbe
tonrnanient means little to anyone other than
the students from a nine-state area who took
So, a round of polite applause to the debators.
They did a good job. Maybe nobody else cares,
but the squad is certainly aware of what they
Maybe that self-awareness of a fine record is

'Much Deserved'
It isn't customary for basketball to be over
shadowed, even temporarily, in tbe winter
months here at Nebraska.
Especially when Kansas University, and tbe
colorful Phog Allen, come to town.
But such was the case Saturday as tbe Uni
versity track, swimming, gymnastic and wrestl
ing teams put on excellent performances before
Corahusker fans.
It wasn't that the basketball game Saturday
night was that bad. (The game was close, all
the way, even though the Huskers suffered a
disappointing second half.) It was just that four
other University athletic teams displayed some
of their best exhibitions of the year.
Tbe track team, coached by Frank Sevigne,
showed definite signs of promise and improve
ment as they smothered South Dakota, $1-13,
in an indoor duel meet is tbe afternoon.
Also in tbe afternoon, HoUie Lepley's swim
ming team out-splashed Kansas University, 52-32,
to avenge an earlier loss and gain their third
win of the season.
Coach Jake Geier's gymnastic squad, ranked
as one of the best teams in the Midwest, turned
in a sparkling exhibition between halves of the
basketball game Saturday evening.
The wrestling squad, highlighted by Dan
Brand's spectacular pin, showed its best per
formance of the season in dropping a close
match to a strong Iowa State Teacher team.
A3 in aQ, Saturday was a pretty good day for
University athletics, shedding some glints of
light through the long overcast skies of the
athletic program.
And, if nothing else, it's refreshing to End our
fine, but onpublkazed, minor sports program getr
ting some much deserved recognition once in
awhile. B.

Dear Mother,
I certainly enjoyed your vis.i
last week-end. I'm glad I could
find 15 minutes in my crowded day
to devote to you. It was difficult
but I think I owe it to you be
cause, of course, you are my
mother. I wish you could have
finished the tea I brewed before
they came along rather pettily en
forcing the "no-womaa-rule."
Oh, about the ashtray full of
cigarette stubs you saw on my
desk I noticed that you discreetly
averted your glance. You see,
my room is rather strategically
located and everyone comes in

flights of stairs and feels tbe nico

And Mother, dont worry about
the fact that my eyes showed signs
of dissipation I had studied long
and hard the night before, and
besides my room-mate with his
desk so near mine, blows smoke
in my eyes and makes them blood
shot. Our school paper is running a
capital column now. It's by this
very abstract fellow. I wish you
Tha Parvenu
could read it. I tried to find it
to quote to you, but there was
such a dearth of Rags that day
that the only one I could find was
draggled, lying on the Student
Union steps spattered with catsup
and snow.
Part of the column runs some
thing like this though: "The Ralph
