Editorial Comment
Soviets Miffed
The difference between a free and dicta
torially controlled nation was humorously
demonstrated this week when Soviet Am
bassador Mikhail Menshikov formally
protested against an American television
show, "The Plot to Kill Stalin," which
was aired by CBS In September. Menshi
kov said, "I voiced a virulent protest
against this provocative action. That was
a filthy slander against the Soviet Union
and the Soviet government." The miffed
ambassador added: "This kind of slander
ous attack is incompatible with interna
tional standards and inadvisable in
normal diplomatic relations " between two
The humor resulted when Deputy Un
dersecretary of State Robert D. Murphy
replied that Menshikov had lodged his
protest in the wrong place, that the State
Department has no control over com
mercial television media in the United
States. ,(
What then were the Russians to say?
The freedom of America's information
medias is one of the greatest forces for
democracy, and one of the greatest dif
ferences between the United States and
Russia. There is no doubt that our State
Department has often criticized Ameri
can news medias for attacks on U. S.
policies, but the officials of this same de
partment must have felt a bit of pride
when they were able to provide the Rus
sians with the answer they did.
A press release from a communist
tinged organization was received by the
Daily Nebraskan Monday and helped to
demonstrate what results are when free and
independent reporting of events is not al
lowed. This release was one of several
which was put out on the 5th Congress of
the International Union of Students held
in Peking in September. Those attending
were primarily college level students from
Asia, Africa and Latin America. Their
press statement said that the Congress
was working on, smong numerous other
things, the following:
The militant struggle of students, par
ticularly in Latin America and the Arab
East, against imperialist domination and
interference, and against the control of the
national economy and exploitation of na
tional wealth by foreign monopolies.
TL development of joint actions, such
as the solidarity campaigns in support of
the students of Algeria and Cuba and the
successful holding of international gather
ings such as the 6th World Festival of
Youth and Students in Moscow.
It is significant to note that the militant
struggle against control of national econo
mies and exploitation of, national wealth
by foreign monopolies is confined to areas
outside of the Soviet bloc. Perhaps the
students were told to forget about the
numerous examples of exploitation by
their glorious leaders in the iron Curtain
countries. Also, the students were possibly
told to forget that American investment in
Latin American and Arab countries is
done through cooperation of the govern
ments in control, and that these govern
mentsunlike the Iron Curtain countries
are not controlled by the U. S.
It might even be possible that the "free"
press of the communists was given 'free
dom" to forget to inform these students of
this type of exploitation by the Soviets.
It is also significant to note that the
kind of gathering which the International
Union of Students seemed to favor was one
in which propagandists for the commies
are given a field day to Spread their dis
torted words. In this country the foreign
student is allowed free reign to wander
where he wishes and do as he pleases
without a propagandist standing by to
"inform" him of the glories of democracy.
Most significant of all about the release
from the Union of Students was that all
of the propaganda was written in good old
understandable English, while the letter
head and the office address of the group
were written in three or four languages
that 999 out of a thousand Englishmen
couldn't read. Did the group think com
plete information (and certainly the group
which releases a story must be evaluated
thoroughly before the story's value can
be determined) was deterimental to its
Who should we comptain to . , . the
Soviet Department of State?
Register to Vote
There are probably numerous Univers
ity students over 21 who have not yet
registered to vote in the Nov. 4 general
election. This should be done by Lincoln
ites as soon as possible in the election
commissioner's office in the Trust Build
ing at 10th and 0 Streets, or the cor
responding hometown spot for others.
There is no way to make up for the vote
you don't cast. Although you may not have
the opportunity to choose a new President,
you will have the opportunity to help select
top Congressional officials who will repre
sent you in Washington.
Individual Staff Views
By George
Construction of the Union's million dol
lar plus addition is proceeding apace. It
certainly looks as though Nebraskans will
not have to take a back seat to anybody
else in the Big Eight conference when it
comes to fancy pleasure
And just one note to Bob
Handy and his Union
"gang". As long as we
are spending all this
money for the construc
tion of the most complete
and beautiful student
union possible, would it be
too much to ask for a new
signboard on the front
lawn? For the last ten
years, Union committees have advertised
coming events on a billboard that looks
like a refugee from a Charles Adams
Here U a thought for the Lincoln police
in their never-ending war against illegal
parkers. All of Lincoln and Lancaster
County have officially endorsed this fall's
Extra-Point Club membership drive. Why
don't the police get into the act this way:
On home game Saturdays, when the
parking problem is particularly accute,
let the Extra-Point Club membership
sticker on the window of a car be good for
an extra two hours parking in the campus
restricted zones.
After all, parking tickets are usually
redeemable for a dollar. An Extra-Point
Club membership costs a dollar. Why not
let money that would usually be raised
from game-goers pay. some of the freight
of the game these folks see. It would be a
jolly way for the administration of the city
of Lincoln to support a football team that
brings -Lincoln merchants a lot of rev enue
from outside fans every year.
This might be something for chief Joe
Carrol to discuss with the city council at
Its next meeting.
Last Saturday, a 1949 graduate of the
University dropped around to the house
after the game, and quite naturally fell to
talking about he resurgent Huskers.
"That's the second game I've seen them
play this year and it was the second game
they were lucky to win." the old grad said
One of the pledges, bubbling over with
freshman enthusiasm, asked the alumn,
"Well, if it's all due to luck, why do you
keep coming back every home game."
"Hell.son," the venerable one answered,
"this is the first time in the last 15 years
I've seen one lucky Nebraskan, let alone
11 of them. That's so unusual I keep com
ing back to make sure it's reallv happen
ing." With all due respect to the alumn, Ne
braska hasn't been "just lucky" in win
ning two of their first three starts. The
Huskers have looked a little like a pro
fessional team on defense a couple of
times this year. The pros let their oppon
ents grind out the gains at midfield and
concentrate on preventing the breakaway
spectacular run or the long pass. When
the shadow of the goal post loom at their
backs, professionals settle down to stop
ping everything.
With Nebraska, of course, the difference
has been in the offense. The Huskers can't
get theirs going and thus must spend en
tirely too much time with the looming
shadow of those goal posts. That they can
fight off bigger, stronger teams time after
time and still come back to score fourth
quarter touchdowns has nothing to do with
It has to do with skill and determina
tionand spirit.
Someone was howling about the mis
chief secret societies perpetrate the other
day. Admittedly, defacing University
property with "Beat Iowa State" slogans
is a childish way of exhibiting school
But has the author of last week's howler
heard of the even more infamous secret
society known as "Grandma's Club?"
Here is one that really bears investi
gating. They don't paint slogans, they
don't have formaj meetings, they don't
send anyone nasty notes for any kind of
notes for that matter , they don't rush
anybody and they are ultra, ultra myster
ious about their activities.
Sounds highly subversive what? - ,
