J Tuesday, January 12, 1960 Page 2 The Daily Nebraskcn ..... i :! 3 I 4l 1 i f Editorial Comment u .;.?-: v t' ' - 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 are responsible. 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 on November. 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. . Px'i W0 WT; Fix Bayonets ! s ' ' Or . .. '. Uli . , . It's ... Time To , Review 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. ' - -,.v. 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 ners. ' 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 Mystics." ;,. 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. Staff Views: On the Other Hand 40 "f 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 rough drafts. 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- tomers., 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... ' ; ' ' . Sondra 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 honor system. 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'. : 7 Daily "Nebraskan SIXTY-NINE YEARS OLD tfrtaWt Associated ColierUU Profit, Inter V eollegUts Prett ' SemaeaUtiTet Nation Advertising 8srr- fee.
