Editorial Comment
Political Interest
Members of the University of Nebraska
convocations committee, along with pub
lic relations and administration officials,
must have been almost universally pleased
with the large number of students who
turned out to see the "Break the News
Panel" convocation. There hasn't been a
bigger turnout for an all University con
vocation in recent years except for Ben
nett Cerfs appearance.
The Daily Nebraskan believes that this
refutes many who argue that University
students are unaware of what is going on
about them. Senator Paul Douglas ap
peared at a time when concern for poli
tics has begun to climb to a high interest
peak throughout Nebraska. The size of his
audience shows that students definitely do
care, and offers hope that many of them
will attempt to play an active role in poli
tics ala 1960.
We thank the University for authorizing
this all University convocation and voice
our desire to be afforded more opportuni
ties in the future to be a part of such
stimulating events.

Individual Staff Views
Is the activities picture changing at NU?
Looks like it could be judging from
some of the things that have happened
this fall.
Penny Carnival will be no more. Kos
met Klub originally had 17 skits sched
uled for tryouts in the Fall Revue. When
the choosing of finalists came around, only
five skits were presented for the picking
of four participating skits. AUF Auction
Is another thing of the past.
Perhaps it's because the worth of some
activities Just doesn't keep them living
and active. Or maybe students are be
coming more academic in their outlook
and would rather study than build booths,
plan musical skits and be put on the auc
tion block.
The Student Council activities commit
tee defended the worth of certain campus
activities such as Coed Follies and the
, KK fall show recently because the shows
were said to be voluntary. The committee
said the decision to participate in these
activities is up to the individual student.
But if a house decides to participate in
the Kosmet Klub show or the Follies, get
ting up a skit won't be very voluntary.
People have to be pressed into service in
the skits whether they want to or not.
Seems Its always hard to find enough vol
unteers to swing any activity, no matter
how much a house may profit by it.
Everyone may approve of the participa
tion, but they'd just as soon let the other
person do the work.
Some campus leaders have even gone
so far as to say that politicking is nearly
dead at dear old NU. Must be getting
harder and barder to pull deals.
But then comes along a new campus
group, the Young Democrats, to add an
other organization to the campus list. But
By Carroll Kraus
Young Democrats' present and future
success has hinged on the fact that 1958
was an election year. With Democratic
gains on Nov. 4, the group may hold a
position of some campus prominence, but
really can't be considered in the same na
ture of activities as Kosmet Klub, stu
dent publications and student governing
Some fraternities that didn't submit
KK scripts for the Fall Revue pointed to
the fact that Homecoming took enough
time away from pledges and actives alike.
Sororities pointed out the same thing
through Coed Counselors when Penny
Carnival was axed. They took the same
viewpoint towards the AUF Auction.
Maybe some of the more influential
campus intelligents are behind the whole
thing. They may be gunning foi a PBK
key rather than a Mortar Board mask or
an Innocents' hood. . .
A few things I've always wondered
How tome: ,
Panhellenic doesn't make ominous
sounding resolutions like the Interfratern
ity Council?
Love Library closes so early on Sun
day? The State Historical Society Building,
which at first glance appears to be sym
metrical, has more windows on one side
than the other?
Senior women have closing hours?
The Student Tribunal is called a Tri
Nebraskans and the University of Ne
braska for that matter, have an infer
iority complex?
Some people will be dismissed from a
class and walk away even when a very
top-flight All-University Convocation is offered?

From the Editor
A Few Words of a Kind
Monday noon I was privileged to sit in
on a luncheon for Sen. Paul Douglas,
Democratic senator from Illinois. After
a long, long diet of equivocating govern
ment and school officials, I walked away
on Cloud 7 because I had finally met a
representative who told you what he be
lieved and why.
If Nebraska has been hurt by anything
politically, it seems to be the lack of rep
resentatives in government of even half
the caliber of Senator Douglas. Students
who managed to take in his panel with
newsmen at the all Uni
versity convocation Mon
day morning will prob
ably agree that they have
known few persons with
as forthright and chal
lenging a manner espe
cially in answering ques
tions. My blood still boils
when I think of asking one
of our school officials a
certain question at least
three times last year at a luncheon ses
sion of the same nature as this. All I got
was three long orations on wholly unre
lated subjects. And afterward the person
had the audacity to ask, "Just what is
your pitch, anyway?"
The senator is a former professor. I
thought during the session that if he were
as good a professor as he is a senator

particular political stand that his stu
dents were extremely fortunate. His arti
culateness and willingness to discuss any
matter that members of the luncheon au

men, asked couldn't help but win him a
place in the heart of anyone who has ever
wanted a straight forward answer from a

Sunday evening the Union ballroom was
filled with a near capacity audience for
the annual all University talent show.
The crowd saw some promising young per
formers. Hats off to the Union and those
students who showed their wares.

Periodically I devote a few inches to
bemoaning my state of intellectual en
deavor. This is probably because I have
read too many sources which emphasize
that a college diploma doesn't make a
man educated and a good portion of your
college work is wasted time. An honest
man (see how I load my argument)
couldn't help but agree with this point of
The plain fact is that every person is
limited in the amount of culture that he
can absorb into his lazy and fleeting life.
Being the stubborn soul that I am, I find
it almost impossible to sit still in class
after class while a professor rants on and
on about subjects to which he has chosen
to devote his life, but which to me mean
only hours of subdued endurance in usually
stuffy, poorly ventilated rooms.
My subconscious decision seems to be
to devote my remaining college days to
stoic opposition against enthusiastic or
dutiful attempts by professors to liberal
ize or broaden my outlook on life. I am
not pleased with what I am, but I feel I
would be less pleased with what many in
structors would make of me.
In spite of this talk of faltering interest
in current intellectuals pursuits, I find
myself pleased with hav ing dashed through
Hamlet as preparation for my English
class this week. The drama is fascinating
and intriguing enough to capture the most
action demanding creature, and the
speeches are such that (as Dr. Dallas
Williams said in the Shakespeare feature
story Monday) they stimulate thinking. In
Hamlet, many of us woe is me crying
fellows find a companion who makes us
feel that our griefs are not all our own. If
I were the Bohemian student that I some
times feel I would like to be, the highest
tribute I feel that I could pay Hamlet is
that he seems like a fellow I'd like to get
drunk wKh. A fellow with as many facets
to his personality would assure you that
his words and ideas would be as stimulat
ing and intoxicating as the wine you
