Voting Right Is One We
Should All Make Use Of
Daily Nebraskan Letterips
Tomorrow itudents of this institution
al least the ones who are 21 years of age
and line In Nebraska get a chance to ex
ercise a right that was fought for and
' won for the citizens of this nation more
than 150 years ago.
The Nebraska primary election is being
held. And this year, it is one f special in
terest in both the national and state of
fice preferential races.
But today, all students of this Univer
sity, regardless of their hometown or age
can cast votes for candidates, also. They
are and will be voting for Student Coun
cil representatives for the coming year.
We hope for a heavy vote, especially one
that is representative of every area of
the student body. But we know many will
fail to vote simply because they cannot
find It in themselves to spare several min
utes to elect the representatives whose de
cisions will certainly have some direct or
indirect influence upon them during the
next and succeeding school years.
As Norman Cousins, the editor of the
Saturday Review, said at an All-University
. convocation recently, one of the ugliest
phrases an American can utter is "What
good will my vote do?"
. Apparently the voting right has helped
this country to attain some degree of '
world prominence. And it is the basis of
procedure in almost every group, club,
society and organization in this country.
A Student Council will try to serve bet
ter the interests of the University, it is
sure, If the students show that they are
interested in the leadership in the Coun
cil. If they fail to show up at the polls to
- day, this might indicate that what hap
pens really doesn't matter too much.
And your vote means a lot individually
as well as collectively. Since voting is by
college, the number voting for each col
lege delegate is not nearly as large as if
the representatives were elected at large.
The former vote may be four or five times
relatively more important compared with
a vote of the latter type.
Another very important aspect of to
day's elections is the matter of constitu
tional amendments. A number will be
voted on, the product of a year's work
One-third of the student body must vote
in order to make any of the amendments
valid. In general, the constitutional
changes appear needed. But unless the
voting hits a peak of above 33 per cent,
no changes will appear in the Council con
stitution. They will be automatically de
feated. So the Dally Nebraskan feels much in
order in urging every student to mark a
And with the end of the semester near
ing, with the old Council except for hold
over members ready to relinquish their
posts, go our thanks for good collective
and fine individual efforts in Council pro
ceedings. We hope the new Council will
do as well.
While Nebraska's College Bowl team
was unsurcsssful in unseating the mighty
Colgate quartet, they are to be commend
ed for a valiant effort.
The many hours of preparation, study
and practice deserve a hearty thanks
from the University student body which
It vas an honor and tribute to the Uni
versity to be selected to participate in
the program and the team did well in
finishing second to a powerful opponent.

Verwoerd Gets Little Sympathy
The following editorial was taken from
the Syracuse University Daily Orange.
Wrtiten after Prime Minister Hendrik F.
Verwoerd of the Union of South Africa re

shows no sympathy for Verwoerd or his
"Prime Minister Hendrik F. Verwoerd
of the Union of South Africa undoubtedly
is uncomfortable as he lies in a Pretoria
hospital nursing a few gunshot wounds in
"We find it hard to feel any distress be
cause of this.
Verwoerd, who makes Gov. Faubus
and Sen. Eastland look like a couple of
NAACP attorneys, was shot, strangely
enough, by a white farmer. If anything,
this is encouraging, for it shows that at
least some of the powerful white minority
in South Africa disagrees with Verwoerd's
Nationalist Party's policy of apartheid
complete separation of the races.
"There isn't even a pretense to any
thing separate but equal under this sys
tem. 'A few weeks ago, when the first of the
recent series of slaughters against the
South African Negro began, the State De
partment saw fit to voice its opinion on
"Cynic Circles" is an apt title for the
column written by Eldon Miller in the
Kansas State Collegian.
In one recent effort, he listed some
quotes which he thinks famous people
would haye said had they visited the Kan
Included were: Winston Churchill
"Never have so many done so little," and

the internal affairs of another country.
It deplored the action in South Africa.
"Such a remark by the State Depart
ment of necessity carried a taint of hypo
crisy, for race relations in this country are
far from rosy, as the civil rights debate
in Congress at the time of the telegram
indicated quite vividly.
"Still, we think the situation is some
what different, for in this nation, progress
is being made slow, pitifully slow, but
still moving forward.
"In South Africa the case is just the op
posite. The racial problem there is going
backward just as fast as Verwoerd and
his administration can push it. What pi
cayune rights the Negroes had, what pet
ty progress had previously been made
toward equality under law, was elimi
nated. "If Verwoerd and his group had argued
that emancipation of the Negroes must be
slow for whatever sociological reasons
they brought out, we may have disagreed,
but we would have had to admit that this
at least is a legitimate position.
"But the Nationalist Party of South
Africa has said that there must be no
emancipation. How a man with Verwoerd's
education he's a doctor of social psy
chology, among other things, not a
Georgia cracker ould hold such an un
tenable position is amazing. It is more
than that; it is intellectually dishonest.

government leaders is the way out of the
"But we fail to see why any more con
cern should be shown for Verwoerd than is
shown for the bullet-riddled body of a
Negro lying in South African dust after
white police have done their job.
"It seems that Verwoerd clearly asked
for what he got.
"What else could he have expected un
der the circumstances?
"He's quite fortunate that the bed he
made for himself is in a hospital and not
six feet under the earth he has soaked
with innocent blood."
