Tons of Bubble Gum
Speaking of budgets and how can you
help .it with tuition-type time coming
: President Elsenhower dropped a little
bombshell in his state of the union mes
sage last week.
' ' ' ' , ' ' i :
Seems as if Uncle Sam might come out
with about 4 billion (that's right, with a
"b" not an "mi") extra-type dollars next
year once all taxes are. in and all bills
paid. Democrats and .Republicans alike
could, hardly have failed to note that $4
billion call buy a lot of pieces of bubble
gum ; . .
' ''-: ' ':'
Or a lot of votes, depending on who gets
the credit for the spending!
Mr. Eisenhower mentioned that if the
surplus does materialize, it might be ap
plied to whittling down our mammoth
national debt. Meanwhile, Democrats
holding down the majority of the seats in
Congress are not too subtly licking their
chops at the prospect of the political hay
that might be made in spending said sum
on pork barrel type projects all of course
resounding to the credit of whoever pushed
it through Congress."
At this early date then, it looks as if
,. the lines may be drawn. If the money is
spent to reduce the national debt, the GOP
gets the credit for making a gesture
. toward sound financing and lowering the
tremendous interest payments on the debt.
-' And If the Democrats push for big spend
ing -in say, education, or highways, or
dam-building or whatever, they can "point
with pride',' to the projects for which they
None of which might come about if
. 1) the surplus doesn't happen, or 2) it
weren't an election year.
Number 2 is the saddest point to men
tion. A sum of the proportion of $4 bil
lion, secured through no raising of taxes,
could do a tremendous amount of good.
Without going into the relative merits of
how the money should be spent, small
voices are already sounding the plea that
Democrats and Republicans alike enter a
s gentlemen's agreement to use the money
wisely, and not to use the spending of the
surplus as a platform, plank with all eyes
Small voices aren't too effective every
fourth year, however, when the presidency
is at stake.
"Education Plus Responsibility is Labor
Problem Solution . . ." read the Rag head
line over a story about Bob Kennedy in
Monday's issue. Try deleting the words,
"Labor Problem" and substitute just about
any other major national or international
issue. It fits in most cases.
And in the case of a sum like an idle
$4 million which has been taxed away
. from the citizen, that same citizen owes it
to his pocketbook, if not himself, to inform
x himself thoroughly on how it is spent. He
owes.it to his nation to look into the long
range ramifications of the disposition of
the money, and not just to how it .immed
iately affects his town, or his pet project,
or his state.
"Responsible Spending," would make an
excellent campaign slogan for someone.

Nominations in Order
Somewhere back in Daily Nebraskan
antiquity, the staff conceived the idea that
there were "those "heroes" sung and un
sung, who make this University what it is.
They are both faculty and student person
nel, since no university can exist without
a faculty, and no faculty can make a solid
contribution without the student.
Hence th-e. Outstanding Nebraskan
award was initiated.. At the end of each
semester from 'a list of nominations sub
mitted from persons both on and off cam
pus,' the staff of the Daily Nebraskan se
lects one student and one faculty or ad
ministrative, person to honor as an Out
. standing Nebrriskan. '
The selection is always difficult, since
each nominee's .name is placed in the
competition for a particular quality or set
of qualities in which he or she excells.
Sometimes the award goes to a man who
is lauded for being a Teacher one who
has that magic quality which can inspire
and infect young minds with the burning
desire to learn and do more.
Sometimes it goes to a student who has
been an initiater, a beginner, rather than
a follower. But regardless of the qualities
of the winner, the Nebraskan has always
been proud to honor the certificate win
The two honorees for fall semester, 1959
60 will be announced in Friday's paper,
and will be presented at a luncheon that
day. There have already been several fine
nominees, but there should be many be
fore the 5 p.m. Tuesday deadline.
To which can only be added that the
only persons considered are those nom
inated by someone in a signed letter which
reaches the Nebraskan office by 5 p.m.
today. Don't wait for George to do it,
nominate the person or person whom you
feel to be Outstanding Nebraskans. i
Was It Worth It All?
The big push is really on. Among the
juniors, that is. Doesn't make a whole lot
of difference to anybody else, but it seems
a shame that so much energy should go
into that activity known as "Gunning for
The honoraries were established for
service. This is their excuse for existence,
and when seen in this light can perform
a yaluable function. Any individual who
serves in other activities in order that he
may be an Innocent or a Mortar Board
does not deserve to be one and the honor
will be a hollow one should he succeed.
On the Other Hand
By Sondra Whalen
According to the AWS letter sent around
to organized houses about the Coed Follies
' tryouts, skits do not have to be more than
rough examples of what the finished pro
duct will be like. v
How wonderful this would be if it meant
that characters could use scripts, the
chorus could be per
formed by just a few and
the cosutming and stag
ing could be explained in
If I remember cor
rectly, such steps .were ;
advised by AWS several
years ago, but no one
seemed to pay much at
tention to them; If such
suggestions were revived,
then adhered to by the
houses, we would all get more sleep, and
Student Health would have fewer cus-
Perhaps houses could get together and
" agree not to practice 20,000 hours before
going over for tryouts. If all were rough,
no one would have an unfair advantage,
and houses not getting in would not feel
so cheated. .
A smaller amount of time would have
been spent by everyone, and a smaller
amount wasted by those not getting into
. the show... ' ; ' '
The School of Journalism has again de
pleted our ranks by sending their stu
dents out on the semi-annual field trips
which climax the semester's work.
Actually, the trips are. probably the best
experiences J-School members get for
practicing the fine arts of writing and re
porting. For two days, they publish two
state daily papers, largely without the aid
of any of the regular staff members. '
Although getting up at 6 a.m. can be
quite a traumatic experience the first
times it's tried (it seems newspapers be
lieve in getting that paper out early!)
when the paper finally appears, the effort
was well worth it.
Prof. Jerome Ellison's article in the
Jan. 3 issue of the Saturday Evening Post,
"Changing Values in College" ties in with
the present - University discussion on the
He said that more dangerous than
overt cheating is the frame of mind be
hind it which he described as ''anti-education".
Students interviewed gave pres
sure to succeed coupled with fear of fail
ure as their reason. .
Perhaps another reason that might be
mentioned would be that cheating, in mod
. erate form, is not actually frowned on.
Sometimes the attitude is rather that, if
you can get away with it, fine.
But as the time-worn statement goes,
'you're only cheating yourself'.

Imagining for a moment that college is enlightening,
we look with firey enthusiasm . . . to the' approaching
end-of-semester Formats A and B, building upvin the
southwest like a locust blought. '
And let's remember real bullets are used here and
if no one loaded our guns, then the least we can do is fix
bayonets and go stick somebody. -
But to the pbint. I have prepared a list, of prime re
view questions from, obviously, prime courses for your
use in final exams (which consists largely of tests). -
Study 'em and remember: The life you learn may
not be your own.
Sign name at top in braille and check which Format
your neighbor has. (30 points).
I. (From Home Economics 2 (much) Health, Hy
giene, and Dirty Germs.) I would rather (choose one or
so): (1) pick my eye, (2) pick my nose, (3) pick my
neighbor's nose, (4) pick my neighbor's pocket, (5) pick
my neighbor's eye, 6) all of these.
Note: If you answer "all of these", you go to the Stu
dent Tribunal for trying to be funny; if you answer 4, the
-Student Tribunal comes to you, and if you answer "pick
my nose", you're dead, because the test is machine
scored by a sterile IBP.I and them germs on your paper
lower your grade.)
II. (From Bus Org 24Office Management.) Match
the following columns. You have 8 seconds.
A. Paper clips. . 2. To rub out misspelled werds.
B. An eraser. 1. A littie box on your head.
C. Desk top straightening. 3. Your major. i
D. A blotter. 4. A blotter.
E. An advanced set of reference books on the Malthus
theory of inconspicious consumption in relation to the
marginal propensity to equate the logarithmic scale . . .
, , 5. Whaa . . .
6. Your minor.
Note: This is a trick question: You see, the right
hand side has an extra item, and you'll be damned if
you can remember if desk top straightening is your major
or your minor.
III. (From Dairy Husbandry 303 Research in Milk
Production Problems.) When milking cows, I should re
member (1) my family, (2) DH 302, (3) where the bucket
is, (4) where my foot is, (5) where the lab instructor is,
6) all of these, (7) none of these.
Note: (7) is the one to check, because the right ans
wer is obviously "the cow", but few get this right.
IV. (From Elementary Education 102 Children's Lit
erature.) Match the following books and their authors:
1. Peter Rabbit
2. Boris Pasternak
3. The stork
4 Charles Darwin
5. Karl Marx and James
In choosing a . mate, I should consider first (1) sex, (2)
species, (3) love, (4) all of these, 5) none of these, .(6)
all but 3.
Note: Won't you be surprised when you find that 6)
is correct. .
VI. (From Physical Education 95-Organization and
administration of intramural sports.) Completion: ; If your
students fail to respond to your cleverly outlined squash
and croquet programme, you should: make them do ....
pushups. If they don't do the pushups, you should make ,
them lift .... pounds. If they don't lift them apples, you
should make them run .... laps."
If they don't run the laps, but revolt instead, yoir
should (1) flee to Florida, (2) regret that you have but
one life to give to your cleverly outlined squaslvand cro
quet programme, (3) burn the town in effigy, (4) Appeal
to the NLRB, (5) run them laps yourself, but over cross
country, (6) All of these.
' ." "
VII. (From Bus Org 295 Human Relations In Ad
ministration) Well, yeah, how why not huh?
VIII. (From Logic 1 Discusion question.) Why in the
hell should one have to go to class when he's got his book
and his head if he don't wanna. (Use the back of your
desk if necessary.)
IX (From Psychology 70 a couple that have been
bothering me for some time.) True or False (1) Psy.
chology is God. True or False: (2) Sigmond Freud, be
cause he has explored it, is our conscience. True or False:
(3) .To take a man's, mind and soul is not stealing if he
, gives them to you.
X. (From ROTC any ROTC) The next war will be
hsld on (1) the drill-flight deck, (2) the mall, (3) in the
crib, (4) at the grill, (5) none of these.
Note: Anyone who answers nine of these is probably
an exchange student.
Ahhhsooo. Huzzah. Have your paper notary publiced
and hand it in to the grad student holding the Gatling
gun: on Monday if your last name begins with 3 to 74;
Tuesday if it begins with A to ; and Sunday morning if
from 12:30 to 1:05 A.M.
Paper must be accompanied by student ID, tran
script, first semester fee receipt, thesis, lab book, chain
mail, chaperone, dog tag, tribunal citation, dean's signa
ture and draft card.
Ain't we got fun.
