The Daily Nebraskan
Who Are the Naive Ones?
Via the Daily Kansan editorial page
we learn that 21 campus organizations at
Creighton University have signed a procla
mation against cheating. Through this
proclamation, all members of these groups
have pledged to do his or her part to
abolish the practice.
As the Daily Kansan points out, the
proclamation does not state how this is to
be done. The assumption is that personal
integrity will win the dayj
While proclamations never win wars by
thenselves, and stands unsupported by ef
fort i ever accomplish anything, it would
seem that the students at Creighton are
at least thinking in' the right direction.
Their declaration shows an awareness at
least that cheating is more than a small
problem in college today.
True, the percentage who crib may
be relatively small, but it is a corrupting
minority. As long as any . one individual
condones cheating by indicating that it is
clever to outwit the powers, that only
clods really study, there is a tendency for
this feeling to spread. On -our campus it
has spread just how widely no one is
quite sure, but lingering suspicions and
fragments of knowledge lead us to assume
that the spread has been wide.
Those who signed the proclamation at
Creighton surely did not expect dishonesty
to flee from their campus with the stroke ,
of a pen. Ink rarely chases bogeys away.
' What it can do is point out the problem.
It can define the issue and pinpoint the
fact that there Is rather rampant cheat
ing going on and that this is not some
thing to be chuckled at as proof of some
Cheating won't disappear by ignoring
its existence. It won't, disappear by hav
ing proctored tests, unless there is ap
proximately one proctor per four students
and we are not advocating this solution.
Another partial solution is an honor sys
tem. Army ROTC is experimenting with
an honor system and all indications are
that it is a success in nearly every way.
We would like to see other departments
or even other instructors attempt their
own small-scale experiments in honesty
Each of these solutions though, is some
thing imposed upon the student from with
out. In a way, proclamations of the sort
issued from the Creightonians is the same.
The difference is that it was instigated by
students in an attempt to yank student hon
or upward. There is much value in influ
ential campus groups discussing honesty
whether they choose to make public state
ments on stands.
. Dishonesty erodes not only the school
but the individual. It creates hostility and
bitterness among those who do not cheat
and see others making higher grades or
at least not flunking when they should. And
it breeds. It breeds rapidly. It breeds a
rotten sort of blight which can fix' itself
onto a young person say a freshman.
Once there, it stays.
The students at Creighton may be label
led naive in issuing a proclamation such
as theirs. But at times being a bit naive is
infinitely more commendable than being
so cynical as to assume that there is no
remedy for moral depravity.
' While it is not to say much for our value
system, it is still a pretty reliable rule that
what our peers think of ourselves deter
mines our behavior. Hence, if the only vo
cal ones are the fudge-abit boys who crow
at their clever devices for skipping through
exams and papers, small wonder that the
cheating problem here doesn't disappear.
If you don't believe in cheating, if you
believe that to cheat misfits a person for
the college degree; speak up once in a
Even "Without an Auction . . .
For those who haven't been hit yet, the
AUF drive is very much on. It's harder
for the people in AUF to raise sums
equivalent to those of years past because
of the abolishment of the AUF auction in

the organization of the All University
Fund swing into full action to glean
nickles, dimes and dollars from the cam

the few campus organizations which has
little to gain for itself except the satisfac

Just a few of the things which went on
one year at the WUS Auction show the

of the old AUF auction here.)
Anyway, auctions or not, AUF is an ex

charities from banging on our doors, and
it offers a large group of students an op

others by soliciting from their friends.

On the Other Hand
By Sondra Whalen
Tucked away under the topic of educa
tion in Time magazine is the answer to
the world situation.
No longer do the campus elite stuff each
other into phone booths
and cars'. No more panty
raids. No more blasts.
Everything has been re
placed by hunkerin'.
Briefly, the new craze
is defined as "squatting
on the balls of the feet for
a long time." (Hunkers is
Scottish for haunches.)
Started at the Univer
sity of Arkansas, the fad
grew out of a chair shortage in a fra
ternity house at the University, whose
students had watched their Ozark daddies
squatting end whittling at crossroads
Not confined to Arkansas, travelers are
exporting hunkerin' to campuses in Mis
souri, Mississippi and Oklahoma. How
ever, no sign has been spotted at the Uni
versity. Various phases of hunkerin' are sug
gested. For the sophisticated hunkerer,
the feat is accomplished flatfooted. Pro
gressives hunker with elbows inside the.
But the keynote of hunkerin' is togeth
erness. Hunkerers always hunker in
groups. Hunkerin' and hookin (would be
illegal here and bring on an investigation)
is squatting while drinking beer.
Hunkers look upon the whole thing as
the way to solve all of the world problems.
They advise that Ike and Khrushchev
hunker at the summit,- while steel-strike
negotiators hunker awhile over resuming
The IFC and the Rag could hunker over
closed doors, and if the Tribunal joined in,
we'd all be hunkerin buddies.' What dean
could resist a hunkerin' social chairman?
It would be pretty difficult to assume a
lofty AWS court while everyone was squat
"This is a peaceful thing," Time quoted
onehunkerer as saying.
"A respite from a world of turmoil. The
main purpose of hunkerin' is to get down
and hunker together. It's a friendship
thing; get your friends to hunker with
"The man you don't know is the man
you haven't hunkered with!"

Of a 1 1 the buildings on

one I dislike, and that's the

the , second
week of my
reer. The addi
tion to Mor

the Plane- Ingrid
tarium was being built my
freshman year, and during
the first few weeks of the
fall semester, classes held
in the north half of Andrews
were constantly disturbed
by loud drilling that went
One day of the second
. week my English instructor
asked if someone would like
to go down and ask the men
to stop drilling. Having al
ways been extremely gul
lible, I raised my hand. As
I was walking out of the
room, I asked Mr. Lewis
whether he was serious
about this, and he said yes.
Thinking that I was do
ing my first service for this
University, I ran down
stairs, ail the way around
Andrews through wet grass
and arrived breathlessly at
the construction site. I ap
proached one of the work
ers and asked him to please
stop drilling because we
couldn't hear anything in
At first the man looked
at me rather stupified, but
then consented to stop drill
ing. . I ran back upstairs think
ing that I really deserved a
gold medal or something
for my accomplishment,
but when I walked back in
to the classroom, complete
silence reigned, and every
body just stared at me.
I hadn't expected this kind
of a reception and thought
at first everybody would be
laughing. So I-went back to
my seat in the front row.
The minute I sat down, Mr.
Lewis said, "Miss Leder,

' I couldn't believe my ears
and thought he was just
kidding. So I decided, to act
as though nothing had hap
pened and continue in class
discussion. During the" first
week Mr. Lewis had called
on me all the time, but
now everytime I raised my
hand, he would look
straight at me and then
call on someone sitting di
rectly behind me. After he
had done this several times,
I started to accept the .fact
I had really flunked Eng
lish. Tears started to rush to
my eyes when I begap to
think how I would never get
initiated and would proba
bly get kicked out of Journ
alism School, but I tried to
conceal my tears by look
ing down into my book.
It seemed as though I had
been in class for hours
when the bell finally rang.
I remained in my seat un
til everybody but Mr. Lewis
had left the room. I walked
up to him and asked him
what I should do now that
I had failed English.
Ho looked at me very
sternly and told me to go
see my adviser. Then I
asked him why he flunked
me because before going
downstairs I had asked him
distinctly whether he was
,Mr. Lewis answered in a
firm voice, "I was serious,
but you didn't get the men
to stop drilling for very
long.' (It happened that
five minutes after I
got back to the room, the
loud drilling noise started
Figuring that I couldn't
do anything more, I
walked out of the room. Mr.
Lewis, followed me, and

the stairs, he said, "I was

I was so happy I almost
turned around and kissed
him, but I thought I'd bet

flunk me again.
To The Editor:
-I do not believe that it
is in company with the dig
nity of a University news
paper to print headline ar
ticles deprecating other
campus organizations for
honest errors incurred while
promoting a new program.
To give such excessive at
tention to such an error is
indicative of a personal
prejudice disguised as pub
lication policy, and, further
Second, I do not think it
a proper policy to select
one issue and stay with it
the entire semester until it
is worn out from journal
istic misuse. The present
run of editorials on "Cam
pus or University Spirit"
is such an issue."
Third, I cannot, under the
rational for a public press,
condone a policy whereby
editorials are printed and
criticism of them s u r
pressed. Let us remember
that one of the marks of a
totalitarian press is that the
official doctrine is shielded
from attack and thus the
public can be presented but
If an editor invites or per
mits an individual to write
columns, then that editor
has a responsibility to the
roct nf the nublic to air
contrary views. The Ne.
braskan is in a unique posi
tion, in that it is the only
organ for disseminating
To use this monopoly to
surpress adverse opinions
to its own or those of its
writers is to violate not only
the tradition of American
journalism, but its obliga
tion to the student body.
- Further, and in conclus
ion, I think that extreme
caution should be exercised
in editing material furnished
for publication, less every
thing submitted be cut to
reflect what the editor, not
what the author wishes to
The right of public free
speech includes the right to
say the wrong thing.
