Larry Smith, senior from South
Sioux City, has been chosen hy
the Nebraskan as the second win
ner of the spring Star of the Week
.The Husker track star was given
the award for his fine performance
during the quadrangular meet at
Norman, Oklahoma last Saturday.
Smith was the high indivudual
scorer for the thinclads in the meet
as he placed second in the discus,
his pet event, and scored a third in
the shot put.
Larry, who stands 6'3" and
weighs 205 pounds, was one of the
few bright spots in the meet for
the Huskers.
He followed Bob VanDee of Ok
lahoma in both events. Smith threw
the shot 49' "and thus finished
ahead of teammates Ken Reiners
and Leonard Hosen although he
usually follows these two men in
the event.

Last year the Huskers bowed to
the Washburn crew, 8-7.
The individual in the world to
day is confronted with the prob
lem of knowing what he should
freely conform to and what things
he must not conform to, if he is to
retain any of his basic make-up.
This was the essence of Dr.
Frank Baxter's address to the 28th
annual Honors Convocation.
In talking of ''The One and the
Many," Dr. Baxter pointed out
there is the pressure of the mass
on the individual and the duty of
the individual is to conform in
soe areas, but not to be suppressed.
'h growing population and more
people mean more controls are
needed to direct them. The state
becomes all important and the in
dividual doesn't count. The trouble
is that these controls are efficient,
but frightening to live under," he
"Yield to the pressures where it
doesn't matter," Baxter said. Such
things as style and manners are
conduct patterns to which we
should conform, but we should not
purge our ideas, philosophy and be
liefs. Dr. Baxter defined some of the
pressures as being political, so
cial and the pressure to belong.
It is comfortable to conform, he
said, but if you don't like the cur
rent fad in entertainment or such,
stick to your, likes and don't be
swayed because "everyone is do
ing it."
"Conformity turned to the right,
as when driving down a road, is
good," he said. "But conformity to
ideas, philosophies, and beliefs is
the destruction of the individual."
"Ever y man stands alone.
Reading gives a person a reser
voir of experience, something to
think about when they are alone.
he said. "It's nice to be able to
rely on your mind." He contrasted
the asset of being well-read with
the people who have nothing on
their minds but themselves, thus
becoming truly social animals with
nothing more to do than socialize.
Dr. Baxter said he 'enjoyed bis
visit here and found the audience
so satisfactory" that his ego "ex
panded like a balloon."
As an old hand at educational
T.V., Dr.- Baxter predicted "great
things for the development of the
educational T. V. station here."
"It's potentialities are infinite," he

Spring is finally springing and the first University Spring Cay
(a poor man's CU Days) is Just around the corner. This should
prove interesting to the world of sports, as many ancient athletic
events are to be revived .
Such old favorites as wheel barrow races, three-legged races,
greased pig chases and various and sundry other items art designed
to put the Olympic Games on a neophytic basis.
But no athletic event, I say no athletic event has the tradition
behind it that the top contest of the day has. Of course, all of you
have recognized the sport I'm speaking of by now. Yes, it's none
other than the ever-popular peanut-pushing which heads the Spring
Day list
It is a common fallacy to accept peanut pushing for its face value.
Peanut pushing is not, however, without its hazards, as I will attempt
to relate to you in the frightening tale of Bullets Borini, the All
American boy and Hernando Hideaway, a Spanish major on a peanut
pushing scholarship.
Hernando and Bullets met purely hy chance one morning in an
Ornothology 9 class when a fierce woodpecker cornered them in the
same tree. The logical way out of this precarious position was
through a window which was adjacent to the limb that they had gotten
out on. So, being logical they climbed through the window and into
the Music building when they heard a sweet soprano voice singing
that popular melody "I Scuffed My True-Love When She Got Tears
In Her Ears From Crying Over Me Laying Down."
Neither Hernando nor Bullets could resist the shimmering tones
of the ballad and before you could say Antidisestablishmentarianism
they rushed into the room, where their palpitating hearts threatened
to burst asunder. For the singer was indeed as beautiful as the golden
tones they had heard.
Hernando, captivated by her beauty whispered "1 love you,
senorita, you all (he was from Southern Spain). Your very wish is
my command."
His companion was not to be outspoken and he quickly dropped
to one knee and spouted forth "la all my days at Bessey Hall X have
never seen anything as beautiful as you."
The girl smiled, but not being one to be overwhelmed, her blue
eyes (all three of them) glistened and being of noble descent she
replied: "If both of you mean this, there is but one way out A duel."
Hernando flexed his mustachio and very slyly countered, "How
about something different, something that neither of us would have
an advantage over the other upon?" He then shifted his weight off
of his mustache and looking rather
nuts at SO paces," thinking of his many years of workouts wita
goobers Tie chuckled at the thought
His adversary agreed and the battle was on. Peanuts to roe nmsn.
Hernando, elated with his own cunning, raced out to the street
and produced two peanuts,, while the lovely maiden watched from
the window above.
The moment of reckoning lad arrived and at the signal Hernando
sped away into the gathering twilight, employing the old one-two, a
method of peanut pushing familiar only to experienced peanut pushers
wherein, the mustache is placed in each end of the peanut forming
an axis. j
Hernando was so carried away by the ease of it all, he neglected
to look up from his peanut and lo and behold, he was engulfed in an
oncoming parade. Before he realized it, he had followed the peanut
right into the trunk of a bystanding elephant.
Needless to say, Hernando lost the duel, the girl, and worst of all,"
being a Hindu, was reincarnated as a peanut .
So let this be a lesson to all you prospective peanut pushers, dont
lose your head and accept the sport for its face value, as our dashing
young Hernando did. For you also may learn the hard way.
