Business Administration where Charles Miller is
reported to have exclaimed, "They want me and

And so the University turns from the relatively
peaceful state of a quiet sophisticated, literary
1 atmosphere to a wild rash to get the best jobs
first. Over in the counseling service Dr. War
nath has said that the seniors would be given
first preference for the better jobs. And Casey
needs a new dr a tighter.
The University will make out all right without
a budget. We have seen what a budget could do
to our school and we won't let it happen. Ne

are such things as ticket fixes but this can't
be condoned either.
The solution to the problem lies with the
American people. If he can speed then so can
we. And if he can take the chances of poor

of being educated along the highways and bi

I would therefore, appreciate any
co-operation you could offer in
aiding us to locate any such in
dividuals. What are we looking for? Well,
in the first place, we are seeking
to find new stories. If there are
any great Nebraskans, like Buf
falo Bill (who, I understand, is
defunct), or if there are any excit
ing stories, like bank robberies or
church fires, I would appreciate
knowing about them and about the
type person who could write such

aspiring writer to get in touch
with me or one of the mem
bers of our Caravan staff.
Until we hear from you I'll leave
you with my best.
And by the way, say hello to
the boys on your sports desk.
They're doing a fine job.
To the Editor:

that it would be published. I

I have again and again talked
with J. Colbert about the possibili

think my efforts would come to
any avail? Do you think I could
get some of my ideas into the
paper? Do you think there would
be any chance for me to have my
say? Dou you think the Pink Rag
would publish my letters?
The staff of your paper are in
competent juveniles no more suited
for the jobs they hold than Dwight

General Motors. Your editorials
are rubbish; your columnists are
inane illeterates clambering to
reach some sort of obscurity. Which

While skirting the campus yes
terday, I came across a young lady
lying in a pool of blood at the
foot of the steps of the union. She
was wrapped in a sheet of white
linen (which was fast becoming
soaked) and was crying.
She looked up at me and said . . .
"I see by your clothes that you
are a student."
"These words she did say as I
slowly walked by.
"Come sit down beside me and
hear my sad story for I'm shot in
the heart and I know X must die."
She said. "
I then asked her if she had been

"I see by your clothes that you
are a student."
I was wearing regular v student
apparel, a conservative navy-blue
suit, a white shirt, without a but

"How can you tell I'm a stu

She lifted her emaciated hand
and pointed to the buckles in the

Ergo sum, I said. Tempus fu

She grabbed bold of my left leg
and pulled me to the earth.
"Come sit down beside me and
hear my sad story for I'm shot in
the heart and I know I must die."
I listened to her sad story.
Soon, I discovered that she was
a junior member of Kappa Alpha
Theta. She was also a member
of Student Union, Builders, AUF,
WAA, Student Council and was
entered in the Miss Cornhusker
competition which is sponsored by

ACP This week, the Associated
Collegian Press pinched, shoved
and polled its way through 153 col
leges in the country to find out
what reaction of the students of
the U. S. was to the ban on
indoor kissing on the University
of Michigan campus. We believed
at the outset of the poll that it
was essential to speak with only
those students who were disin
terested in the subject.
Since we could find none, we
went right to the heart of the mat
ter and asked college stu
dents all over America this ques
tion: Kissing is a sign on affection.
It has been banned on one cam
pus indoors. In this fair to the
Men Women Total

It is anfair 92 98 95
Doa't know 1 1
Don't care 4 1 2
The figures show a fairly size
able majority agreeing with the
charges of "Unfair to Kissers."
Students who said that they felt
it was fair to ban kissing in pub
lic maintained that "the ostenta
tion of osculation occurring on a
perambulation would create a sen
sation." That kind of student
would think it's fair.
Some students cite specific in
stances where they are embar
rassed by the conduct of their
roommates or others living in the
same dorm or sorority. "I believe
that when I brought my little
sister down here she was ab
solutely shocked. For she said
something like," Boy! Are they
behind the times!"
On the other hand, the vast
majority of the American college
students believe tht it's "o.k." to
kiss in the campus quarters.
"It's kind of like a bottle," one
college sophomore stated, "If you
can get couple of drinks while in
a respectable place, you won't get
drunk. But if you have to go out
in the country, you don't feel you
can return unless you've finished

At the University of Nebraska,
a sorority girl, a senior, had this
to say, "You never even realize
that people are watching you. I'm
not ashamed of my guy. Why
Dyke's the finest young man in
the school. And if I can't kiss him
in public, nobody else will!"
Over in Iowa, however, the
voice was tougher and more dis
gusted with the ban. A junior girl
in engineering said that kissing
was something like a Republican
Party. "Maybe you should keep
the Old Guard up, but for fast
action you can't beat this national
pastime no matter where."
Students who were undecided on
the question generally fell into two
categories. The first is those who
are already married and the sec
ond is those who are going to busi
ness colleges where there are no
dorms or campus living quarters.

school gal in Minneapolis stated.

Happily had been a member of
Pi Xi, frequent contributor to The
Prairie "Schooner and a member
of the Ak-Sar-Ben riding club.
Told of Happily's death, Sgt.
Nance of the ROTC stated that
"Dis guy's loss through dying will
be a preddy big blow to de litrary
woild on de NU campus. We're
gonna miss dat guy aroun here."
. Karl Shapiro, editor of the Schoon
er, looking gloomy as usual, said
of Happily, "That boy was one of
the lights of this great and cultural
Midwest. Of course, he was just
one of the myriad of poets, authors,
philosophers and political thinkers
on this campus, but he was a great
inspiration to me and Buick. Ah,
the pivot is again wobbling."
Bernie Slow, friend and teacher
of Happily remarked to Daily Ne
braskan sources, "That Boy was al
ways so cheerful, always so calm,
alsways so so so clever."
Funeral services for Happily
will be held at the Diamond Bar
and Chapel, Tuesday evening fol
lowing the Nut Fry. Services will
be conducted by Bishop David Bal
