One year can't produce a tradition, or
one instance a precedent, but at this
time, in this issua last year, the man of
red-sweater fame abandoned the normal
Daily Nebraskan fare to comment thank
fully on ome aspects of his own life, and
those of all of us who inhabit this campus.
In grade school all of us (except the
international set) learned the story of the
pilgrim's who separated a day out from
the year in which to be thankful for that
which was good. They had little in com
parison to us to say "Thanks" for.
So while e. e. nines again will com
ment on what e. e. is thankful for (and a
wonderful list it is), the Daily Nebraskan
considers these things worth pausing upon
to praise and utter one small word of
Thanks to the men who sometime in the
1860's planted a sprig which was to grow
to a University on this location;
Thanks to men and women who have
dedicated entire lives to fostering and
nurturing that sprig in order that it may
grow and expand, it's roots plunging ever
deeper into the soil that is Nebraska;
Thanks to the thousands past and pres
sent who have sent the taxes from their
homes and farms to pay for the lights,
the heat, the salaries and the typewriters
and books all that is a college;
Thanks to the moms and dads who have
dug and are digging into wallets and bank
accounts to buy those books and pay the
Thanks most especially to the men and
women who teach, who have not taken
the-most materially lucrative path who
have ignored industry in order to propo
gate knowledge and the methods for seek
ing after that nebulous mecca called
Thanks, too, for-five days-five days to
rest, to chew happily on mom's cooking,
to sleep till 11, to see the old town;
Thanks to all those before us who have
created a system of government which
makes us free the mistresses and mas
ters of our own fate.
Thanks for the ideals which genera
tions past have bequeathed us ideals like
freedom of speech, the right to impartial
trial, the opportunity to enter the job field
or profession of your choice;
Thanks for the chance which is before
us to fight (not necessarily with guns but
with ideas and education) for these same
No mere list can pretend to encompass
all those things, tangible and otherwise
the college student 1959 has to be thankful
for. It can only scatter a few thoughts,
perhaps counteract for a moment the pre
vailing cynicism and pessimism of our

comment on that which is good, that which
is significant. It seems to refocus our
Same Story, 19th Verse
It's been nearly three months since
many students have been home. Some
will have a long way to drive in one day.
It's possible that somebody won't make it.
That somebody might be you. Instead you
will become a statistic of the National
Safety Council. You may be one of scores
who will be killed on the highway's dur
ing the Thanksgiving holidays this year
because of someone's senseless careless
ness and neglect. '
It's also possible that you won't be a
statistic after all. Instead you may be a
murderer. It won't be premeditated mur
der, and it probably will be unpunishable
by law. But just .the same you may be re
sponsible for somebody's death, because
you didn't dim your headlights or didn't
have your brakes fixed or drove a little
too fast through a small country town.
You don't have to become a statistic or
a murderer, though. You can stay within
the law. This means don't speed, don't
drink, don't hog the road and don't be
careless or reckless. If you're going home
to meet your girl's parents or vice versa,
and she's riding with you see that you keep
your mind on the road. The closer she sits
to you; the more room there is for death
to find a seat in the car.
Don't say it can't happen to you, be
cause it can. Seven out of 10 are innocent
victims of law violators. By being extra
cautious during the time of heavy traffic
this week, you' can keep off the list of
40,000 Americans who will die on the high
ways this year. By increasing your travel
time 10 per cent you can reduce accidents
90 per cent.
Death never takes a holiday.

Unlimited time outs will be allowed, due
to the expected physical condition of the

Each member of both teams is re

failure to abide by this rule will result
in the deduction of two points per unused
player from the total score of the team
commiting the infraction.
Free throws will also be unique. Girls
will shoot from a line seven feet away
from the basket, while guys will shoot
with their backs to the basket, one-handed,
over the head.

eligible to play plus regular reporters of

To another subject. Examination of the
student paper at Colorado State University
disclosed that more Nebraskans attend
that school than from any other state,
(outside of Colorado of course). Twq hun

are going to school there.
True, the school has a good college of
agriculture, but so does the University.
And it's right here. And it's cheaper.
Nebraskans going to school in Colo

Maybe we need a more extensive public
relations program, both by the University
and the state. But as suggested by Miss

the problem goes deeper than that.

is a distinct difference be

most Student Council mem
bers went back to their respective-organizations
took a poll of how many
students would be in favor
of extending library hours.
But how many of them took
the time and effort to ex
plain the pros and cons in
volved? If students know the ad
vantages and disadvan
tages involved in an issue,
they will be able . to vote
and voice their opinions
much more intelligently.
The Student Council may
be doing a lot of worthwhile
things, but members of the
Council al;o have the re
sponsibility of letting the
student body know what is
being done at Council meet
ings. For example, at the
beginning of the year the
Student Council had great
plans to carry out an in
vestigation of activities and
find out whether organiza
tions were fulfilling the pur
pose set down in their con
stitutions. This to me seems
to me like a very worth
while thing, but why not
educate the rest of the stu
dents on the progress of the
Many professors and stu
dents regard filing systems
as a form of cheating. I
realy can see' nothing ser
iously wrong with filing
systems used by organized
houses. In many cases you
have to study not what you
think is important but what
the instructor thinks is im
portant, and here it is very
helpful to be able to refer
to i a test previously given
by the instructor.
This only proves to be
bad if an instructor gives
the same test year after
year. However, most facul
ty members are not blind
to the fact that that filing
systems exist and conse
quently they change their
tests every year. Some in
structors even hand out
tests given previously so
that students know how and
what to study.
However, keeping themes
and term papers in house
filing cabinets Is an ex
tremely serious form of
cheating. In fact it is not
only cheating but it also
defeats one of the main
purposes for attending col
legeto learn to think for
oneself. The fact that many
students have been caught
when they turned in some
one else's paper shows that
most professors have a
pretty good memory of
what themes they have
This reminds me of the
story where an English pro
fessor called a student Into
his office and said:
"You are probably not
aware of the fact that I
am a fraternity brother of
yours and once lived in the
same fraternity house you
are now living in. The
theme you turned in and
for which I gave you an A,
is the same theme I turned
in 10 years ago. You are
probably wondering why I
gave you an A. Well, when
I wrote it I only got a B,
and I always thought it de
served an A."

Withered pedagogues, seeking recognition in some
Yellowed annals of trivial scholastic journals.
Seeking always to enlighten by confusion .
And caring little for the mass of faces before you.
And I am sorry for you because ...
Because you are emotionless and that is life.
You say "ungrateful youth" 1 -
And I am ungrateful for I do not hope,
I do not hope to know I only feel
And there is nothing else and I am nothing. '
I cannot pretend, nor can you pretend yourselvej
Away from me.
Journey through your endless pages if you must
But take my pity with you
, For it will warm your way to nothingness
And you will be forgotten and I after you.
But I care not.
' Only love a little for here is life
And love a man for he alone is real.

For Everything is false.

Hollow, bitter laughter mocks me
When I perceive the sadness of it all. -Come
some day and walk with me
And leave Joyce and James and Aristotle
On his shelf, and I will show you life,
Sordid squalor of a race alone.
Walk with me past their haunts
And meet them on the street.
Unshaven, trying not to cry
And wishing for immortality
To lessen the pain of their existence.
And then you scholars cry with me.
Cry, for we are but the same
Our haunts are just as barren
And we, too, seek and are unfulfilled.
And are we "well-rounded
And "what course do you suggest?"
For God's sake try Life I
To be decided by the Staff
Perhaps we'll meet there in the lab.
Perhaps we won't and who will care.
And so friends, readers, and interested few, have we
estranged ourselves from your cozy little bosoms? We must
admit that we are much like you and these ramblings are
not intended to be wierd or pseudo-intellectual.
Nor are the SATYR wishing to cut ourselves off from
you. We have begun to build the wall that heretics build.
