The Daily Nebnskan
Friday, May 22, 1959
The school year, viewed throueh the
pages of this newspaper has been one of
far more flux and change than we sup
posed before we began our perusal.
Physically, Lyman Hall has been dedi
cated and is now in use. The temporary
buildings are all gone except for three
back of Student Health. The Union has a
new addition almost ready for occupancy.
Work soon will begin on the Kellogg
The other day a casual mention piqued
our curiosity and we decided to find out a
little, something about an organization
called Christian Crusade.
Wa collected a couple of copies of their
publication, also called Christian Crusade,
and the following information.
The Crusade is published by Dr. Billy
James Hargis who maintains offices in
Tulsa, Oklahoma. At one time you could
get a package deal subscription to
Crusade and American Mercury for the
same price. Some of the content of both
magazines is written and edited in the
same style and they have mutual con
tributors. Prominently featured in each issue of
Crusade is a column called "Communism
on the Campus." The author of this article
"exposes" Communists on college facul--ties
. Sample (April '59) expose:
; I went into the office of a sociologist and
found him seated at a typewriter. 1 asked,
'Would you like to have some anti-Communist
literature at discounted rates to
distribute?' He replied, "Not today, thank
. you "
- This above exchange is supposed to
; prove that said sociologist is a Communist.
-And we didn't quote this out of context.
" The whole column sounds like this every
The American Mercury is more subtle.
"Jesus Christ was the first victim of the
" majority vote." (Dec. 5S or "The Krem
lin leaders have es nightmare one all
consuming fear . It is the simultaneous up
rising of 900 million slaves. If these United
States would stop financing and helping
the butchers, the tortured people would
Informed people say "900 million pray
for war" as this would automatically be
the long awaited signal for a simultaneous
uprising of the enslaved people. These
United States could also benefit from a
thorough housecleaning!!" (May '59 )
We will let these statements stand with
out further comment as to their validity
And from this we will let the reader
reason out the political sentiments, pur
poses and reliability of the people wjio in
volve themselves with these publications.
Changes have been made in intangible
areas too. A trend away from activities
was evidenced by Coed Counselors when
they dropped the Penny Carnival: AUF
when they stopped the auction and Kosmet
Klub when they had trouble filling a Fall
Show and then couldn't have a spring epic.
Yet students appear more responsible
and better able to govern themselves.-The
Student Tribunal, though its closed door
policy still finds no favor with this news
paper, has done a fair and impartial Job
of reviewing student misconduct. The Stu
dent Council got up on its feet and took the
lead in registration and exam schedule
problems perhaps the first sign of posi
tive action from that group since the Tri
bunal was instituted.
And, of course, our old friends in the
Union gave us a new innovation in student
government with their advisory board.
Bob Handy, this semester's Outstanding
Nebraskan, gave the Union activities peo
ple a brand new, expanded program too.
People were understanding each other
better and better as the year progressed.
The foreign and American students aired
their differences in these pages in one of
the most constructive discussions we have
Feature stories on curent events moved
onto the editorial page along with book
reviews to keep us changing too. Inter
national politics got an occasional going
over in our editorial columbns.
There were all these changes mostly
for the better.
And there was one change strictly for
For the Legislature again revived the
old academic freedom issue and blitzed
the University's reputation with innuendo
and half truths.
We hope that the fires of this contro
versy will soon die out under the impetus
of a Regents' investigation. We hope that
the burns won't be too bad and that the
state's good solons will give the Univer
sity a sizable increase in the budget for
higher faculty salaries.
It is certain, however, that this is the
most outstanding issue of the year. And
we are proud that most students have
stood with their instructors and upheld
their right to behave as citizens in a free
In the future, we hope that tolerance
will be the watchword.
And in closing we, feel happy that this
newspaper has once again had an oppor
tunity to serve the campus and we are
glad to have been a part of this service.
A new staff with new ideas will greet
you in the fall. Until then, we say good
bye "with malice towards none."
It's almost 6 p.m. as I sit down to churn
out this last column of the year. Nearly
all of the staff 'cept the old faithfuls
Carroll, Sandy, George and Randy have
gone home for dinner. Most of them won't
be back later. For sev
eral today was the last
day down in this hole in

mostly a hole. We spend
four, five, six or seven
' hours down here a day,
four, or five, or six days a
week. We gripe, we yelL
we glare at the gaping
holes ia the ceiling. But
when someone mentioned that they were
going to redecorate here, those of us who
wiH be returning, sort of a stunned look
cane over everyone.
Not So Tough
It seems but for heavens sake, don't
let this out that these tough Rag kids

and all institutions actually have hearts,
and what's more, they 'are a bunch of
George is wandering around looking
nostalgic as he prepares to clear out the
editor's office. No wonder. Despite what
I said earlier about all the griping, all the
yelling, most Rag kids have the idea that
they wouldn't trade this hole for the world.
The work runs into the 25 and 30 hour a
week category. Evened out, the salary is
' somewhere in the 25 cents an hour range
hardly enough to lure anyone down here
to get rich.
Before some cynic asks, might as well
mention why most of the kids do come
'down and work like the ones who are
' graduating seniors the ones who aren't
' trying to work up the hierarchy, who just
work because they love it. It's more than
the Rag. That's the primary loyalty, but
without the atmosphere of the campus,
there would be no Rag staff because you
have to love this place to put up with the
pressures, the constant complaints from
people (you know, the old you can't please
Despite the almost constant twitter
around the campus that the Rag is "out to
get somebody", we feel that when we criti
cize, it is to improve. We feel that as the
campus paper, we have the one real forum
through which the student point of view
may be expressed.
Thus if it seems at times that we take
large swings at the administrative offices,
perhaps it is because we feel that no one
else really has the opportunity to do so.
The Council could, but a combination of
factors keeps it from doing an effective
job most of the time in expressing force
fully the so-called student point of view
whatever that may be.
Time is passing rather quickly. Three of
the crew just ran upstairs to get a tray of
Crib food. We eat a lot of that. Ingridjust
came down she and Carroll are putting
in a bit of last minute cramming before
an exam. Yeah the truth's out. We study
down here, loo.
Sellenlin even jarred loose and bought
us all some goodies to eat today. Gads!
it's fantastic what gets into people when
they know that the crew is splitting up.
George is banging out his last editorial.
Nostalgia, nostalgia. If I didn't have a
term paper and exam tomorrow, I'd dwell
on it a bit.
