Spirit's Willing
Hold on a minute.
Thii isn't a "Yes, there Is i Santa Claus,
This is more along the lines of, "Yes, there's
something left of the old time Cornhusker."
We can't say with any certainty what it was
like to be around the campus 60 years ago. We
wouldn't have any business
comparing the thens with
the nows. But it could be
kind of interesting to blast
the present spirit of the Uni- t ,'
varaitv and aa what we hit. ,
Students will throng to the
utadium soon to watch the
Cornhuskers in action.'
They'll see Bill Jennings'
quad play their best for
dear old Nebraska U. courtesy Lincoln star
Jennings is the kind of guy Jennings
we like around here. He's unpretentious, he's
a hard worker and he's trying his best to make
Nebraska look good to the critical eyes of the
Students could take his example (and the
example of a hundred other quiet, hard-working
people around this University.)
They need not raise a loud voice every time
high official or a teacher steps out of line.
It would be far better to work hard and attempt
to create the correct atmosphere of an educa
tional institution.
And then . . .
And then if that doesn't work out they could
raise a stink and let the million and a half
people in Nebraska know what's going on and
what they would like to do about it.
In past years the Daily Nebraskan has been
a newspaper which spoke out with the voice of
an uncontented duck. But it spoke when the
need to speak arose. It hasn't dug up trouble
except when it needed to be planted in the minds
of the students around the campus and in the
eyes of the people of the Beef State.
So what?
So this year there will be an attempt on the
part of the Daily Nebraskan to make the spirit
of the University take on a fresh face. Get things
out in the open, we say. Let the students know
Wha's going on.
And if anyone gets in our way, hit them.
Why? Because it's the duty of the newspaper
to be a coach of public opinion. Not to tell
the people how to think but rather what to
think. Not to get in and quarterback the affairs
of the University but to stand on the sidelines
and yell for our side.
There's a lack of big problems on the campus
this year. That's good. But if they should spring
up we'll tackle them with the fervor of a
mountain lion.
We won't condone student apathy to anything.
We'll whack out at any obstacle to the creation
of a wholesome University atmosphere.
Some sage once said," There's no hope for
the satisfied man."
How true. But there's plenty to be dissatisfied
with in the city, in the state and all over the
world without making our own petty fights.
So you know where the University paper stands.
We're counting on the University to stand
behind us.

The Grind
Around the University of Nebraska campus a
big shot can be one of two things.
Principally it is a person who believes that
the sun rises and stays up over his head
through the long day's journey into oblivion.
It can be the capacity of a freshman at a
social hour off campus.
It should be more than either of these two,
When autumn rolls around and the Mueller
Tower starts chiming in earnest the assembled
fellows of the University make a concerted
effort to instill knowledge in the minds and
hearts of the students entrusted them.
is it
Teaching is a chore sometimes.
Too, it can be a wonderful and satisfying
The new freshman will embark on the trip
across accumulated learning and return home
with a few drops of wisdom in his mind, in
structors are hoping.
This wish can become a reality. Yet it takes
more than a fascinating lecture and a fine set
of visual aids in any one semester.
The Daily Nebraskan recognizes the lure of
the social whirl on this young (mentally) and
fine campus. It advises that students avoid any
distraction from the books other than those
which go to make the life a full and enriching
Certainly there are thousands of students who
have roamed or roared out of the doors of
their respective high schools and demanded
freedom from education. Let them go.
To you who have decided that college will be
enobling, let no one tell you different, we say.
H .it is
This is written for freshmen, of course. Moth
er Experience will vouch for the fact that by
the time one year of college is completed most
students have found the way they want to go.
They will become fatter or thinner through the
summer months. They will grow' tall or slouch
over. But their minds won't be dented by advice
of their peers if they can help it.
So we look to the freshmen and whisper
gently into their ears the words which are
roared at them at other times and in other
Make the most of your education, stay docile,
grow up.
There's a real big shot and the openings for
the position are just about without bounds. He
(or she) is a person who recognizes what this
college business is all about.

I started to sweat.
Then I turned to another station
and flicked on the air conditioning.

I myself am planning to do well
this semester. My older brother
(the doctor-to-be) kept prodding my
chubby abdomen all summer and
flipping his plates in an effort to
make me take up scholastic en
deavors in earnest.

to do well." It's Just possible for

Have you all gotten your books?
You know, those things with pages
and scribbling? Fine. (Whether
you say yes or no.)
Im sorry to admit that I had a
big deal brewing to get some books
from a frat brother of mine. His
wife decided they needed some
books for their living room now
and consequeutly I was left with
the terrible reality that books
might be necessary to get out of
Then there's tuition. Thanks to
my thoughts in zoology that ecdy
sis was what a strip teaser does
and in ROTC that guns are dirty
weapons rather than "a man's
best friend" I was (what-you-soy)
"sweating" getting a renewal of
my scholarship. Then, too, the 43
solons at 15th and K made sure
we would get stuck for the bill of
education (we'll get to that later
in the semester) so that they could
get the happy folks In the West
happier. So I (and you and the
8,900 students who aren't reading
this) got stuck, as 1 say.
But it has started off to a fine
note. We'll all have a joyous time

to make a disparaging remark
about the Middle West and then

There's no budget, though. We
won't have our daily ration of budget-bull

The creative spirit must, then,
dwell upon us.

men thrown out of school on a
liquor violation which ccurred in

cars on 10th Street each evening in

hours (If a ticket is ever given). . .
It'll be a good year, I promise!
The Coal Bin
by jim cole
OK, Frosh, Here's Advice
Well, the months of mental lax
ity are at an end, and the time
has come to tune in the brain. Uni
versity has begun, and so has the
press. And the Nebraskan is see
ing a new columnist this semes
ter. His name is "jim cole", and
he shall write under the title of
"the cole bin". I picked that title
for two reasons: (1) it makes a
nice pun, and (2) it provides an
official receptacle for the deposit
of anything old and worthless.
Anyway, I hope a few words worth
reading can be nutcracked in, be
tween the tongs of all "chefs
d'oeuvre" on this page.
First, a hearty welcome to all
freshmen. I hope you find college
to be fruitful and perhaps even
enjoyable. I believe that I have
profited, so far, anyway. . .Next,
greetings to the old "sailors" who
have found the voyage here worth
the higher enlistment fee. Inciden
tally, I see that Steve Schultz is
aboard I thought he was going to
stay in Iowa; hmmm...
Now, I have some advice for
freshmen. So all of that class perk
up the ears, open the brain, and
come alert, please. However, I
won't go into any school regula
tions and procedures, because that
stuff has been shoved at you
enough, I believe. And besides, I
don't consider regimentation the
only thing of importance around
here. What I want, though, is to
discuss "attitudes", if you can
stomach that topic once more:
O- V-
The chief concern of the begin
ning freshman seems to be crea
ting "impressions". The genteel
high school graduate tries to show
off in order to gain somewhat of a
"worthy" reputation. He becomes
unnatural and, as intelligent peo
ple like to say, "affected." That
is, he puts on "airs" in front of
his classmates and teachers for
acknowledgment's sake. Only the
trouble is that freshmen do not
recognize or admit, anyway just
what they're doing.
The first-year student also
comes with a handy selection of
cliches, fancy words, and solutions
to world problems, in hope that he
wiU acquire a title of "scholar".
But all talking that comes forth
out of this collection is gibberish,
and void, of meaning, because it
lacks thought or idea not stifled
by common opinion of Americana.
Well, that's what they teach over
in Andrews. But let me warn any
one who wants to listen, not to
try "profound" expatiation over
there, because our English teach
ers don't like it. What must be
remembered is your "station" in
life that of a college freshman
(yes, I was one too, once).
You are not capable, yet, of run
ning the world (no, neither am I),
so don't try. Do not load anyone
down with any "philosophy" you
think you might have about
"ideals", "truths", "traditions".
High school students talk in this
"highfalutinness" without saying '
much. What happens is that the
mind injects the brain with a pe
tunia garden. So, of course, "flow
erism" takes the place of thought,
and any pus that the brain ejects
has a sweet aroma but no idea.
y jj. 9
Modesty should be the "style"
to follow. Humble yourself before
upperclassmen and teachers, if you
want to gain any inkling of "re
spect". Open your eyes to your
lack of knowledge and experience,
and get interested in learning, if
you can. After all, that's why
you're supposed to be here. Instead
of trying to teach, be taught. I
mean to regard the opinion of your
campus "elders" as not all but
folly, and benefit from observa
tion. Be slow to mouth your griev
ances, and omit bumptiousness.
(Leave that to the columnists')
t s
Now that I've blasted you, I
want to encourage you. I'm a vet
eran of the first-year struggle, so
I'm sympathetic toward your
"anxieties." The newness of col
lege must be overcome (with the
clock's help, of course), but every
novist at this institution has ex
perienced it. That is, don't be
frightened at becoming an "attend
ance unit" in Avery auditorium of
230 seats.
No one b'ites. And don't be
startled at hearing yourself called
"mister" or "miss". Students are
treated as men and women (well,
part of time). Subsequently they
are expected to act that way.
n n tf.
Then, as I have seen it, the first
thing for a freshman to do is to
acquire a character of unaffected
simplicity. And this is done by be
ing "you" and acting "you." And
next, is to keep your confidence.
I mean at your first "flunks" not
to dash for the employment agen
cy. Chopping rock wouldn't really
appeal to you.
In other words, don't let a few
mistakes scare you off. If a form
B693857202F-38 is received, though,
telling that you're about to become
a memory here, it's time for the
counseling service, perhaps...
The Khoadcsidc
I'll begin this year by skipping
all the usual tear-stained cliches
and nostalgic reminices about the
"beginning of another school year"
and dive immediately into a few
thoughts at hand.
It would seem to me that we, as
past Keepers of the Bastion, should
pity rather than welcome the New
Student to the campus. Let's look
at this brave new world which this
individual Is about to become a
They come with various reasons
to the University. Release from
parental authority for the adol
escent; a sorority affiliation to the
socially ambitious; a door to in
tellectual knowledge for the PBX
hopeful; an invitation to associate
with people of ideas these are
but a few of the hopes secured
within the wide-eyed Freshmen.
But no matter why they came
the point is they're here. But pity
the poor souls
Many boys were wined (beered)
and dined during the summer and
have now accepted a pledge pin.
Many believe they have accepted
the keys to a Las Vegas hotel, to
Stlllman's gym, to the Innocent's
Sanctum, to the Harvard Club.

Although we must pity the poor
New Student, we must do all we
can to help him adjust to this
brave new world. To do that,
here's a few facts he should know:
