The Daily Nebraskan
Monday, January 11, 1960
Editorial domment:
A Leader's Conscience . . .
The time of the big changeover has be
gun. It wont be completed until spring,
but a significant number of major office
holders -in campus organizations have
turned the reins over to their successors
within the past week.
New. blood means new Ideas, new en
thusiasm, new. dreams for improving the
campus, for revitalizing the organization
concerned and improving the events or
services sponsored by the group. This is
the value of change. With new leadership
almost always omes renewed optimism
and enthusiasm.
And, like other organizations, the Daily
Nebraskan will assume new management
at the end of this week. In preparation for
the turn-over, an up-dating of the Nebras
kan editorial files turned up a March,
1953 editorial which has applicability in
this time when so many campus groups
are electing new officers. .
From the "Westminster Chines," a pub
lication of the students at Oregon State
College, the 1953 Rag editor, Don Pieper
took the following "Beatitudes of a Lead
er,"; - ..
BLESSED is the leader who has not
sought-the high places, but who has been
drafted into service because of his ability
and willingness to serve.
BLESSED -is the leader who knows
where be is going,' why he is going and
bow to get there.
BLESSED is the leader who knows no
discouragement, who presents no alibi.
BLESSED is the leader who knows how
to lead 'without being dictatorial true
leaders are humble.
BLESSED is the leader who seeks the 1
best for those he serves.
BLESSED is the leader who leads for
the good of the most concerned and not
for the personal gratification of his own
BLESSED is the leader who develops
leaders while he is leading.
BLESSED is the leader who marches
with the group and interprets correctly
the signs on the pathway that leads to suc
cess. '
BLESSED is the leader who has his
head in the clouds but his feet on the
BLESSED is the leader who considers
leadership an opportunity for service.
A formidable set of goals and yet these
are the things about which anyone hold
ing an office or a position of Importance
should consider. Not all presidents are
leaders. And not all leaders hold office.
To those recently elected to office, the
Nebraskan extends best wishes and a sin
cere hope that you will evaluate your at
titudes toward the position in the light of
this list of beatitudes or any other cri
teria foT judgment
To those seeking office may the most
worthy win, and having won, may they
recognize the obligation for service which
accompanies the honor.

We Have No Excuse
It is difficult to know whether amaze
ment or horror should come first upon
reading about this sprinkling of Nazi
linked anti-Semitism occurring in the
United States.
That anti-Jewish feeling has broken out
into demonstrations at all is cause enough
for concern in a nation predicated upon
not just token religious tolerance but upon
a positive attitude of respect for the other
man's beliefs, be they political rr reli
gious. Protestant leaders throughout the
country have condemned vigorously the
minorities both here and abroad who have
been busily smearing swastika's on syna
gogues. What is so amazing about the outbreak,
aside from its utter unreasonablesness is
that Americans could sincerely express
their dislike for something by using the
swastika. Is it that some of us don't re
member what the symbol stands for?
Have we forgotten the brutality with
which that symbol is forever linked? Are
there those who are willing to condone
what Hitler and Co. did to millions of
: Jewish people? .
.. Remember the "Diary of Anne Frank?'
Remember those footsteps and what they
In West Germany, where this outbreak
of anti-Semitism started a few weeks back,
vigorous steps have been taken by Chan
cellor Adenaur and his government to
stamp out the demonstration by taking
steps against right-wing parties. Part of
the -situation there has been blamed on
the influnee of teachers in the German
school system. Most of them who are over"
45, were members of the Nazi party and
still nurse some Nazi feelings.'
The West German government has
threatened to dismiss any instructor who
refuses to teach the truth about the Nazis.
Maybe the damage has already been done
But here, in the United States, where
there should be no delusions about the
Nazi philosophy, we cant very well make
our excuses on the basis of misinforma
tion or misguided nationalism.
Here our only excuse can be that some
of tus must be either very bigotted, very
unsure of our own position, or else just
incredibly stupid and malicious.

Items I'd rather not overhear but do:
Pledge 1: We may have an all-night one
tomorrow. Our skit isn't in very good
shape yet
Pledge 2: Yeah. Gee, I hope not I really
need to study.
Pledge 1: Gee, I wonder
if the slumber party to
night is required. I was
up all night last night
studying for finals, and if
I don't get any sleep to
night ...
Pledge 2? Me too, but I
don't suppose we could
get out of it . . .
Pledge 1: I dunno. The
skit's not right 3'et. They
said we'd keep rehearsing until it was . . .
Pledge 2: But I'm so tired ...
And et cetera.
Was it last year or the year before
when Kcsmet Klub drew such a barrage
, of complaint for scheduling try-outs just
before finals? Realizing of course that the
calendar is full, fulL full, it still seems
like inviting trouble to schedule Coed Fol
lies try outs the Tuesday of the week pro
ceeding final exams. ,
That week is normally one of the fullest
academically. Few professors can resist
scheduling an hour exam then, and if the
course requires a term paper, they are
due. Lab books, never quite up-to-date.
are due with all their diagrams dia
grammed . . . and so on. -
And in the meantime each house is try
ing to put together a really clever skit or
traveller act which will give them a spot
in the Follies Feb. 26.
For many of the girls involved, they are
heading intotheir first final exam period.
They have never taken the type of exam
which lasts for three hours and covers
everything from the beginning to the end
of the course. They're scared. I am too,
and I've gone through the whole mess six
times, before.
This past week and the one upcoming
are probably the worst of all possible
times to have scheduled something like
the try outs, which do require a great deal
of previous preparation, no matter how
"rough" the skit might be at the time. No
house hoping to win in competition is go
io to take an unrehearsed skit which still
has many 6erious flaws before a discern
ing set of judges. The whole idea is to
win, and reason tells us that this means
a lot of rehearsal and a lot of time spent
writing. "
I do not mean to attack the Follies. They
are fun, and they provide a good eve
ning's entertainment Also they go a long,
long way to jack up the AWS treasury.
However, when an event causes a serious
strain on the time of students just before
finals particularly where freshmen are
involved, it seems as if the time to evalu-.
ate the net worth of the event has come.

Library Criticized
What Kind of servicaaJid
operation are the students
and Nebraska taxpayers en
titled to in Love Library?
Being both a studnet and
taxpayer I expected effec
tive and efficient service.
Personally I didnt re
ceive the service that I ex
pected I was entitled. I
thought they cant please
everyone so I mentioned
the library service to other
students. The replies were
many and the majority was
not apat on the back for
the library.
Not alL but most of the
library employees just
plain waste time on the
taxpayers money. The em
ployees take unlimited
breaks around campus
which is probably wonder
ful for the coffee retail
ers of America, but not for
the taxpayers.
I also have reason to be
lieve that there are a num
ber of employees lost in the
stacks. I recently asked for
a book and they sent some
intellectually looking per
son to find tie book. After
an hour 1 made up another
slip and the library, helper
didn't come back again but
finally the third time was
the charm. I was informed
their (sic) was no book.
Personally, I have sched
uled an appointment with a
state senator within the
month to see if an investi
gation is in order. The
age and salary structure,
supervision, time - on the
job, and worker qualifica
tions will be the primary,
points of our discussion.
Every taxpayer should be
on guard against misappro
priating state funds ' and
hiring people whose admin
istrative ability is niL -Student

Grades at USI'
Cardinal Guild at the Uni
versity of Iowa has rec
ommended a new grading
system which would give

opposed to an A. At pres
ent, no mathematical dis
tinction is made.
Oaths And Oatmeal
Among the New Years
resolutions made by a co
editor of the Kansas Uni
versity paper were:
". . . we intend to have a
bunch of loyalty oaths
printed up for our personal
use. This way we can
sign one every morning
with our oatmeal to reas
sure ourselves that we are
good citizens. We don't un
derstand just how this
works but one of our
friends said the other night
it was the thing to do.
"We resolve not to join
the Christmas Savings Club
for 1960 regardless of how
many more post cards our
bank sends us . . .
"Also we will try to avoid
national politics. -Although
it's an election year, dis
cussion of issues only leads
to arguments and we don't
want to lose any friends.
If Rocky can stay out of it,
so can we."
No Early Finals
A move to allow seniors
to take final examinations
early was turned down by
the Administrative Council
at Kansas State University
The move had been
pushed to provide seniors
in married housing ample
time to receive grades be
fore having to evacuate
their housing. -In other
words this was to make it
easier for those whose
graduation might depend
,upon the semester's grades.
