Student Affairs Reveals
No Crackdown at Work
JUST &N TAKEN OFF THE HOP!
It is just about time to set the record
straight around here.
Last Monday, the Daily Nebraskan pub
lished an editorial bemoaning the fact
that the : administration .and county offi
cials would not reveal whether or not they
were er gaged in an organized crackdown
on University student social functions.
We never said they were, but that ap
parently is what a 'ot of students on this
campus decided on their own hook.
Well, after some patient pleading, the
office of the dean,f student affairs has

otherwise on University organizations and

has offered us proof that there is no such

Olson hat really summed up the way we
felt too. So we're going to reprint it over
here in the editorial columns as the senti
ments of the paper as well as" the indi
vidual. "The Huskers' basketball season is over.
Our record isn't too impressive, because,
although our team was good, so were most
of the teams we played. And there is no
doubt that we had some tough luck in the
latter part of the season.
But all in all, I think the boys played
some good even outstanding basketball.
They demonstrated excellent teamwork

parts which led to complaints being filed
with the University by civil officials.
3. The cases involving these houses were
not sent to the Student Tribunal because
the Tribunal cannot, according to its char
ter, deal with cases involving organiza
tions. 4. The Student Tribunal is dealing with
several individual cases arising out of a
civil complaint for trespassing. The land
involved in these cases is in the so-called
"Delt Woods" area. The matter was be
gun by the owner of that land, again under
circumstances in which University stu
dents had made themselves "conspicuous"
by their actions.
These facts have been checked and the
Daily Nebraskan is sure that officials in
the student affairs office are hiding noth
ing. The Daily Nebraskan is grateful to
the office of student affairs for helping us
protect the students right to know.
Now, there are just one or two matters
left to clear up.
The Daily Nebraskan regrets that the
office of student affairs did not see fit to
inform the students sooner. A great deal
of misunderstanding might have been pre
vented thereby. The Letterip column for
the next several days will bear witness to
just how much misunderstanding was in
volved. The Daily Nebraskan also regrets that
so much of the student body misinterpreted
Monday's editorial. We do not think the
editorial was at fault. We said what we
wanted to say and students thought what
they wanted to think.
. This led to a great deal of rumormonger
ing. We were right busy for quite a spell
trying to trace them all down. The fa:ts
as we found them have already been
printed in this editorial.
During the past week, we have had sev
eral people approach us with quaint little
suggestions. Most of them involved the
instigation of actions reminiscent of the
spring riots of 1955.
, This method of protest can be viewed
by us only as out of the question. It is too
ridiculous to consider among a group of
young adults that wish their elders to rec
ognize them as such.
And as young adults, t'niversty students
ought to begin to realize that "conspicu
ous" behavior in any community is going
to bring of ficial retaliation.
And what is "conspicuous" behavior?
Well, it's conspicuous when the neighbors
complain about the noise at a party. It's
conspicuous when a fraternity pledge class
steals an active out of a University class
to take him on a pledge sneak. It's con
spicious when a fraternity prefers to steal
its Christmas tree rather than buy it.
It's conspicuous when several individu
als go about burning homecoming dis
plays. It's conspicuous when a mob 30 or
so strong invades a private cow pasture.
It's conspicuous when ... but then, maybe
you are starting to get the idea.

A Few Words
My rest is disturbed by
a dream that keeps com

help me if I telly you what
the men in my dream say:

"We erred? Impossible!"

'True, Mr. Howgrand
iose. But impractical.
There are no mountains
within 200 miles of here."
' Colossal, think of plans
befitting your name. We
can build a mountain here
that would tower above the
Tower of the Plains."
"By Jove, Howgrand
iose. you've got it YBu've

"Thanks, Colossal. Now,
as I see it, we have found
that our subjects have no
backbones. They do not re
sist our most outrageous
rulings. This has been
proved from hotel top to
basement bottom, categori
cally and alphabetically."
"Clever of you, Grandie.
In the future we might
even have our tribunal
sentence defiers of our
laws work on building the
mountain for our new tem
ple." "I'll make a note of that,
"That won't be neces

what gods with such pow

to lack omniscience?"
Therefore I shall recall the
thought at the snap of my
finger in the same manner
that decrees to our sub
jects become law."
"Back to the mountain!"
"Ah, yes, the mountain!
Now, in order to have
enough workers to do the
far reaching task (That's a
pun, Grandie, you should
be smiling.) we have in

laws for them to break."
"Colossal, Mr. Colossal!
My omniscience allows me
to see what you have in

Let's face it, as long as
there are students there will
be drinking students. Per

cars, the masterminds will

is going to be drinking any

(Att'n:: J. Philip Colbert,
Div. Student Affairs)
I am writing on behalf of
several members of a large
campus organization. In the
past, we were in the habit
of meeting at the Student
Union between the hours of
ten and eleven o'clock Mon
day, Wednesday, and Friday
mornings. Our functions (or,
as they are sometimes
called, "coffee breaks") had
always seemed to us to be
singularly innocuous, but
this morning, in the, March
10th edition of the Daily Ne
braskan, we noticed that
such functions are frowned
upon by your office, and, in
fact, "unregistered parties
may lead to social and ac
tivity probation 1 of an or
ganized group." Since there
are from five, to ten or
more persons involved in
the above-mentioned func
tions, and since all of these
persons are affiliated with
the same campus organiza
tion, a question has arisen
as to whether these func
tions (or parties), should be
registered with your office.
We of this group have no de
sire to endanger the stand
ing of the campus organiza
tion which we represent by
continuing to meet in our
present unregistered condi
tion. Therefore, we have taken
steps to eliminate from our
those elements which may
prove unsuitable to your of
fice. For example, we are
now holding our functions in
a "usual place" i.e. the
Cornhusker Hotel. (We con
sidered the Plymouth Con
gregational Church base
ment at one time, but were
advised that it definitely is
not a "usual place", due to
the fact that it does not meet
with the criteria established
by your office. That is,
"good taste, good judge
ment, good citizenship, and
Also, we have been look
ing for a suitable chaper
one, but have had no suc
cess yet. Perhaps you could
aid us in this latter quest,
and recommend an avail
We would appreciate
prompt notification of the
status of our functions, and
