From all external appearances, the debators
who will swarm over the University campus
today and tomorrow will be just a group of
selected eggheads visiting Nebraska to win
To those organized houses which will host the
debators, the young men and women from all
over the country will seem like quiet, well
dressed, well-mannered students who are in
earnest about wttat they are doing. Early this
afternoon, some houses will have six people in a
room, four debators and a judge along with a
This is the way most debates are conducted.
This is the way Nebraska's debate tournament
is set up.
But to those who know anything about tourna
ments as they are held elsewhere, the Nebraska
tourney is something special.
In the first place, students from the campus
are asked to act as timekeepers ( who are a
nonentity in many tournaments). Fraternity and
sorority houses will be used for the early rounds
of debate. Top entertainers from the University
will offer their time and talents to give the 250
students and instructors a breather from the
hectic pace of five rounds of debate plus various
Nebraska's tournament is one of the biggest
in the country. Forty-six colleges and univer
sities come to our campus for the event. Ninety
teams will be competing.
But what's more important than numbers, is
the fact that Nebraska has an efficien tourna
ment. Every element of the campus whi5h is
called upon to cooperate in the two-day confer
ence gives a helping hand to the hard-working
speech department. .
We can be proud that so many schools re
sponded to the invitation of the University to
attend this tournament.
The acceptance indicates a number of things
about the respect our campus has both as a fine
host and an intellectual stimulator.
A president of one of our state teachers col
leges said that he was proud of the fact that
people attended the tournament his school spon
sored. We, too, can be proud of the fact that we are
called upon to-ost such a fine group from our
The success of the debate tournaments in the
past or of the state high school basketball
tournament or the state high school speech fes
tivalhas depended heavily on the complete
cooperation of the students and faculty of the
In the past they have made our University an
institution remembered for its hospitality. We
trust that the representatives of the 46 colleges
here this week end will retain that deep re
spect they have voiced for our University by
accepting our invitation. ,
The Committee on Privilege and Tenure con
ducted the second of its hearings yesterday con
cerning the charges made by Dr. C. Clyde
Mitchell, former chairman of the department of
agricultural economics, that his academic privi
leges were violated.
Since the hearings are being held in closed
sessions, the public and particularly the press
has no idea of what is being said. All anyone
knows is that top University officials have ap
peared before the committee, and that a few
students have been called in to hear whatever
information they might have to offer the committee.
The Daily Nebraskan is very much interested
in the outcome of these hearings, partly because
last spring's editor brought up the whole mat
ter, but especially because anything which might
reflect the University in a bad light should be
cleared up, one way or another.
The outcome of the hearings and the final de
cision by the committee is only a matter of
speculation by those interested enough to reflect
on the issue. The best thing that will come
out of the affair is that it most likely will be
This should be a relief to everyone, including
Dr. Mitchell. ,
Remember the good old days when George
Washington's birthday was a holiday?
It still is for the banks and public workers of
our country. And well they deserve it.
But the birthday of the Father of our Country
is important to us even though we must drone
away in the same pattern of life for the rest
of the week.
It's important to a student newspaper, for we
recall the tribulations he underwent for the basic
freedoms which are the right of every man.
Washington believed in the freedoms he fought
And our admiration of him stems from the
fact that we are grateful to him for taking up
A college newspaper such as the Daily Ne
braskan owes something more to Washington.
We owe him our thanks for making freedom of
the press a reality.
On many campuses over the country the free
dom of students to express themselves through
a newspaper has been curtailed. It won't be
here as long as we do our jobs fairly and ac
curately. A newspaper is only as deserving of the free
dom from the control of the faculty as it makes
itself. The Daily Nebraskan cherishes the trust
placed in us by the administration to reflect the
views of the studerits and to criticize the offi
cials of school and state.
Our prayer is that we will continue to be free
to search for the news (although it may be de
nied) and to print the truth.
Saturday is the final day for students to make
application for scholarships for the fall semester.
For students who have a 6 average and who
are in need of financial assistance, this warning
might be in order.
It is often claimed that no scholarships are
available in the various fields a student migat
be working in. However the wide scope of the
scholarships rejects this misconception.
But a scholarship program and the competi
tion for awards can only be as interesting as
increased applicants will make it.
We congratulate the University on its program
of awards and to the people of the state who
have made the getting of an education a reality
for hundreds of young men and women.

To the Editor:
1 offer my hearty congratula
tions to the interim IFC officers
and to the very cordial atmos
phere which now prevails over
business meetings of the IFC.
With full faith of the officers an
assured consequence, we of the
fraternity system look forward to
to a fruitful operation of the IFC
in all phases which promote the
best interests of the University.
We as fraternity members are
granted the right to exist on this
campus through the grace of the
Board of Regents and we have a
duty to show them that we can
live up to this challenge. It is
very true that many of the things
accomplished through the IFC
have never been realized over the
state as community improve
ments. When we take a critical
view of IFC activities, it is evident
that the program is two-thirds self
improvement and only one-third
community improvement. In the
main our IFC has only three activ
ities which are 1) Rush Week, 2)
IFC Ball (hopefully awaited this
year by all members), and 3) the
Orphans Christmas Party.
I propose an increase in the
number of community improve
ment activities. Among the ac
tivities could be included an offer
to help the RAM organize or help
in any way in the Association of
University Residence Halls Dis
trict Conference to be held here
April 4-6. Another important func
tion could be full fraternity support
of the city campus YMCA and
the benefits derived could be im
mense for both organizations.
I have full faith in the ultimate
goal which ell fraternities are striv
ing for as I know that fraternities
were organized for very idealistic
purposes. I propose that all fra-""
ternities search for the true mean
ing of their fraternity ritual and
" constitution and decide for them
selves what it requires of them
in university life and life as alum-
. ni also.

DIARY OF A COED
MONDAY: Prof Pomfritt sprang quiz in English lit
th;s morning. If Shakespeare didn't write Canterbury
Tales, I'm back in the steam laundry. . . . Lunch at the
house turkey hash. Question : how can we have turkey
hash when we never had turkey?... Smoked a good,
natural Philip Morris after lunch. Yum, yum ! . . . Played
bridge in the afternoon. When game was over, Mildred
Olliphant stabbed me several times with hatpin. Must
learn weak club bid. . . . Dinner at house lamb hash.
'Question: how can we have lamb hash when we never
had lamb? . . . Smoked a Philip Morris after dinner. Good
O ! - no filter, no foolin'l . . . Chapter meeting at night.
Motion made to abolish capital punishment for pledges.
Motion defeated. .y. Smoked some more Philip Morrises.
Natural ! Dreamy ! . . . And so to bed.
TUESDAY: Faculty tea. Spilled pot of oolong on
Dean of Women. She very snappish. Offered her a Philip
Morris. Still snappish. Offered skin graft. No help. . . .
Dinner at Kozy Kampus Kafe 14 hamburgers. But no
dessert. Have to watch waistline. . . . And so to bed.
WEDNESDAY: Got our marks in English lit quiz.
Lucky for me Shakespeare wrote Canterbury Tales! . . .
Date with Ralph Feldspar. Purely platonic. Ralph wanted
. to talk about love trouble he's been having with Mady
Vanderklung. I said things were bound to improve. Ralph
said he hopes so because the last four times he called
on Mady she dumped vacuum cleaner bag on him. Smoked
Philip Morris. Yummra! Dinner at house-bread. That'i
all; just bread. . . . And so to bed
THURSDAY: Three packages from home laundry,"
cookies, records. So hungry I ate all three. . . . Quiz in
American history. If James K. Polk didn't invent cotton
gin, I'm in big trouble. . . . Had afternoon date with Erwin
Trull, pre-med. Nice boy but no loot. Took me to see
another appendectomy. Ho-hum! . . . But we had Philip
Morrises afterwards. Goody, goody, gumdrops ! ... Din
ner at house. Big excitement Vanessa Strength an
nounced her engagement. While girls flocked around to
congratulate Vanessa, I ate everybody's mackerel. . . .
Then smoked a good, natural Philip Morris. Divoon ! . . .
And so to bed. v

FRIDAY: Got our marks in American history quiz.
Was dismayed to learn that James K. Polk did not invent
cotton gin. He wrote Canterbury Tales. . . . Odd! . . .
Lunch at the house bread hash. . . . Philip Morris after
lunch. Grandy-dandy ! . . . Spent afternoon getting dressed
for date tonightwith Norman Twonkey.' Norman is tall,
dark, loaded a perfect doll! Only thing wrong is he
never tells girl where he is going to take her. So I put
on a bathinfe suit, on top of that an evening gown, and
on top of that a snowsuit. Thus I was ready for a splash
party, dance, or toboggan slide. ... So what do you think
happened? He entered me in a steeplechase, that's what!
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY: Days of rest, play,
quiet, meditation, and - aaah ! Philip Morris !... And
so to bed. ' , , ,
