The news that Dr. C. Clyde Mitchell wil prob
ably not return to the University campus is
rather disheartening to most persons interested
In bis case,
The Nebraskan has taken the view, this se
mester, that it could do nothing more for Dr.
Mitchell than report on the activities of the
Faculty Senate committee on academic tenure
and privilege and bring to light any substantial
evidence whiflb was produced by Dr. Mitchell
or by members of the faculty.
. Wt realize that most faculty members would
be rather hesistant about making any statement
that would place them in a situation which would
endanger their professional career, but we
must also realize that If any faculty member
were to take such a step, he would be more
likely to do so If he believed that Dr. Mitchell
were Interested enough to appear before the in
It Is impossible to know the minds of that
mall group of faculty members who believe
In the validity of Clyde Mitchell's accusations
and who have some accusations of their own.
This group most surely exists.
There can be no doubt as to their integrity and
Tery little question of their loyalty to the Uni
versityor what they believe the University
Perhaps they feel that Mitchell's case will be
strengthened if the agricultural economist does
not appear before tho committee. Dr. Mitchell
is not known to be the most tactful individual
and perhaps he will look better on paper than he
would in person.
However, for the many persons who do not
know the answer those friends who are Inter
ested mainly in extinguishing the dark cloud
that hovers over the institution Mitchell's re
fusal to return to the campus means mostly that
the case will be prolonged and the committee
will be denied access to its chief witness. This
act does, not mean, necessarily, that the commit
tee will be " influenced negatively, but it does
mean that the commitee will operate under a se
It is almost impossible to find a precedent
of an investigation of any sort requested by a
person who was unable to appear before the
Whatever the outcome of Clyde Mitchell's
case, The Nebraskan will honor the committee's
decision. It is difficult to see, however, how the
investigation will be aided by Dr. Mitchell's ab-
scence from the hearings.
There's always an added spark to the "sec
ond chance." When Junior says he'll be good,
if only "you don't tell Santa," Junior will be
good. And so the Kosmet Klub, given a second
chance, will show the campus just how good
It is tonight.
After the annual fall review was banned last
year by the Committee on Student Affairs, be
cause of bad taste on the part of the master
of ceremonies, action was taken to reinstate
the traditional show by Kosmet Klub members.
The appeal was made last May 29. On June
4, the Committee said that the show could be
produced with certain stipulations which were
set down at the time.
1. Kosmet Klub takes full responsibility for
the production of an "acceptable and unobjec
tionable Fall Revue," emphasizing talent in
writing and production, as opposed "to slap
2. All persona appearing in the Fall Revue
shall be students of the University, and shall
meet the usual eligibility requirements.
3. The revue shall be made up of skits pre
sented by organized men's living units. An ac
tive undergraduate member of Kosmet Klub
will serve as announcer of skits and curtain
4. A script of each skit and curtain act
shall be submitted to the Kosmet Klub before
any tryouts are held.
6. All organizations and individuals taking
part in the revue will follow the approved script
exactly and shall be responsible for any devia
tion from the script.
6. Kosmet Klub shall be responsible to the
Dean of Student Affairs for supervising the pro
duction of the Fall Revue in such a manner that
the above provisions are strictly carried out.
The University community is looking forward
to a fine show from the Kosmet Klub. As in
the past, each men's house which desired to do
so, tried out and a selection committee chose
those acts which they believed would be the
Selection is the keynote of the revamped pro
gram. The KK has picked both the acts, the
tim nnd the announcer. They are responsible
for the selections. But the finer scrutiny exer
cised this year in these choices will, we nope,
show up in a finer quality snow.

high quality of humor and enterntainment has
replaced it, if the Klub has followed aaminiswa-
Overall this means that the show will be more
entertaining to every element, young or old, at-
Now there is nothing left but the performance.
The houses which "made it" are running
through their paces for the last time. Their acts
will have to be better than any before for the
continuation of the Fall Revue is dependent on
the oualitv of tonight's show.
The Nebraskan hopes that the Fall Revue will
stay in step with the ideas set down by the stu
dent Affairs Committee.
Finally, may we say that with the increase
in pressure on KK performers that the student
body realizes the expanded effort needed to pro
duce a top ranking show. May the best house

A student, returning to his room at 11:45
one night last week, found a note on his desk.
"Dick," it said, "call 2-6050 and ask for Cliff."
Immediately the student went to the phone and
dialed the number. The conversation went some
thing like this. "Is this Cliff?" "Yes," was the
reply. "Say, this is Dick, and I was sup
posed to call you. What'd ja want?" "I didn't
want anything. This must be some kind of
Drank!" "Oh. I'm sorry, did I get you out of
bed?" Dick asked. "Yes, but that's all right."
"Well I'm sorry, Good-bye." A few minutes
later Dick found out that 2-6050 was the phone
number of none other than Chancellor Clifford

IT'S YOUK TIME TO WIND TOE ALARMS TDNiTE."
Dick Becker, sports editor of the
Lincoln Journal formerly of Bobb
sey Twins fame, has precipitated
a red-hot argument among local
sportswriters (which eliminates
Walt Blore) on the "diminution" of
Cornhusker athletic spirit.
Mixing irrelevant statistics, inac
curacies and strained observations
with amiable versatility, the oafish
scribe proves once again that he is
the exponent of true Husker spirit,
as he did in the fall of 1954 and
1955 when he pressed one of the
more mercilessly vindicative cam
paigns against Head Coach Bill
I think it is fair to say, Dick,
that the students supported this
year's fourth place Husker football
team (who proved themselves a
surprisingly good outfit) much
more than you supported the sec
ond place teams of 1954 and 1955.
However, leaving my crusading
successor as he stokes the ebbing
flames of Cornhuskerland, detach
ing elevators from local hotels and
removing fence gates from slug
gish sororities, it might be well to
lend The Nebraskan a helping hand
as it struggles with its first issue
of the semester.
Might I suggest that the editor,
as he courageously defies those
who are subverting campus de
mocracy, extend his philosophy to
the logical conclusion of opening
the meetings of Innocents and Mo
tar Boards. (Perhaps I could get
in that way.)
Or, for a more comic effect than
it has yet achieved, The Nebraskan
could run a report of the IFC's
Three Stooges (Ellis, Schuyler and
Belmont) as they huddle about a
pot of tea in the Ellen Smith bal
But then, I'd better be careful,
or my following (Marvin Breslow,
who has never been much of
leader, and Stan Shiebert) may de
sert me before I can wrest Fred
Daly and Sam Jensen from prom
inence in the Dirty Old Man Contest.
