Page 2 tu. n:i.. m-u , Tuesday, October 7, 1958 .. 1 71 -s 4 -1 '5 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 countries." 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 cause? 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 Mover 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 palaces. 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 cartoon. 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 Mover play this year and it was the second game they were lucky to win." the old grad said disparingly. 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 luck. 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 spirit. 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? - , THE STUANGI WOULD ' I MR.
