Coimcil Candidates
What might have been a help to the
student voter ia the elections Mcrtday
tunned oil to be a f-tie attempt to
gather opinion.
Tbe Daily Nebraskaa thought it would
be nice to End out what candidates for
the student council had to offer ia the
may cf ideas and what we came up with
was a minute sampling of the candi
dates positions.
Y"hat we're pretty much convinced of
Is that the student councd has deterior
ated into Just another activity oa the
campus and the people running for of
fice are tttle peop'e with the thought in
mind that to be concosisutal is better
thaa ta make enemies.
Coinmeats raa the fa mot from, I
kope everytne rates. This is a chance
fer the students to elect represented es
be tbey feel wi3 best represent their
Interests,"' to I believe that most of tie
grteps kave beea taking a sincere in
terest ia tbe CccbcO aad I tape that I
may d as well, U -I dat have any
emmeBts at the moment.
Not, you see, these comments can.e
from people who will be oa the ballot (!)
Monday and from w bora you will select
people to control the activities, the for
tunes cf the students. Too bad. isn't it?
Now you might say it's unfair for the
Daily Nebraskaa to say such things
when so few were interviewed. We in
terviewed four candidates from the
Teachers College and one candidate
from Easiness Administration. No one
else could be found during the afternoon
of the po3. Perhaps they were out in
stilling Nebraska spirit ia their fellow
students. Perhaps not.
Bat the Daily Nebraskaa was gig
to endorse candidates wee we thought
would da a good job, stand for the tilings
which representatives should stand (or
(student tribunal, boosing, parking, etc.)
It seems, however, that the Daily Ne
braskaa can't in good faith endorse anyone!

this sound might bring tear

times to build tremendous in

Speaking of Ivy Day, I'm
