Council Secrecy
Violates Trust
Off to Colorado
For 800 Students
For those students who haven't already packed up
and headed for Boulder, the mountains, Tulagi, the Sink
and possibly the football game, we would like to express
our wishes for a safe and sane journey.
Migration, although not official, is always the largest
social function of the year and this year has drawn more
than 800 students from their homeland to far off Colorado.
It is an excellent outlet for all the suppressed energy a
student collects during his first five weeks of school.
One point that should never be forgotten by those who
are migrating is that for this weekend they are the Uni
versity in the minds of everyone with whom they come
into contact. Your actions will be the only basis for Colo
radoans to judge their fellow university to the east. Al
though many of the spectators will come to Boulder to
see Nebraska's football team, they may end up sitting
next to you at the game. With this thought in mind, w
hope that you will not only enjoy the game and the vari
ous other activities offered on the Colorado campus, but
will represent the University in the proper manner. Who
knows, maybe someday Colorado will migrate to our
Enough preaching. Just keep sane, drive safely and
cheer loudly.
The Student Council's executive session Wednesday
was a direct violation of the trust placed in it by the stu
dents. There is no place in an academic community, and
for that matter, in any community in a democracy, for a
duly elected representtative body of officials to transact
business behind closed doors.
The Daily Nebraskan will not tolerate an organization
such as the Student Council which does not operate openly
with free access to information. This does not mean a
prepared statement released by the Council following a
closed meeting.
We feel sure that we can count on the majority of the
students to hold this same opinion. If this is not true, if
students don't care, then the campus would be better off
without a student government, rather than one which
hides behind a cloak of secrecy.
Possibly, we are too concerned with this type of go
ings on. Maybe we should rather smile and chuckle at this
rather ignorant display of power. For after all, what
could the Student Council have to discuss that is import
ant enough or controversial enough to create a feeling
that no information must leak out. But this is not the real
issue, for regardless of what some students think the
Council does accomplish a few things. It provides a voice,
even though it may be weak, for the student and also
handles matters for which the administration would or
dinarily be responsible. And since students are always
seeking the chance to discipline themselves, no matter
how minor the problem.
As a matter of fact, we really don't care what the
Council was discussing. We understand various issues
were brought to the floor, such as gripes with the ma
chinery of the Council and complants that duties are not
being carried out. It is said that even this paper, or at
least its editor, and some of the editorial opinion ex
pressed in its columns were discussed.
No, the subject before the Council which brought
about the executive session has no bearing on the matter
at hand, which is that the Council, under no circum
stances, has the moral right to close its meetings to those
who elected its members and those whom it represents.
If some evidence of maturity is not apparent in this body
shortly, it may find the Daily Nebraskan going into exec
utive session on Student Council matters.
Wrestling Situation
Improves at NU
The adage "Only time will ten has once again proved
its merit. Last year Nebraska's wrestling squad, long in
heart but very short in manpower, was forced to forfeit
many weight classes during its dual competition. At
times the grapplers even used the services of the student
Many Husker followers shrugged their shoulders with
dismay and said of the future wrestling situation, "Only
time will tell." Well, time did tell. This year the athle
tic department added another outstanding coach to the
ranks. In just three weeks coach Mickey Sparano has seen
more faces in the Coliseum mat room than his predeces
sor had seen during his entire reign.
Now Sparano is faced with a dilemma that has never
faced a Husker wrestling coach. He has to cut his 35-man
team to mold it into a workable team. Of all the prob
lems a coach faces, we are sure that this is one of Spa
rano's happiest.
If one were to walk into the mat room in the basement
of the Coliseum during practice sessions, he would see
dozens of aspiring athletes, working for their position on
the team. This year, they'll have to work hard, for a posi
tion on the team is not a matter of how much they weigh.
Coach Sparano will lift the curtain on his squad Dec.
10 when the Husker grapplers compete with Kansas State.
It is hoped the size of the crowds will grow proportionally
to that of this year's wrestling team. Wrestling has never
been a leading spectator sport on the Nebraska campus,
but at other Big 8 schools, crowds of 4,000 are not un
heard of.
Sparano has undertaken a major task in attempting
to rebuild the wrestling program at Nebraska and sup
port from the student body would add the final incentive.

Aid Coordinator
Talks .To Hardin
Dr. Manuel L. Carreon, a
former Phi Beta Kappa grad
uate of the University and
presently a coordinator of
foreign aid for the Philippine
government, arrived in Lin
coln Wednesday for a confer
ence with Chancellor Hardin.
Dr. Carreon is touring sev
eral major educational insti
tutions in the United States
to observe educational and
training facilities. His trip is
sponsored by the Internation
al Cooperation Administra
tion. A part of his responsibilities
with the Philippine govern
ment is the administration of
the exchange student pro
gram which makes it possible
for more than 8,000 Philippine
students to attend educational
institutions in this country.

By Phil Boroff
In reply to his unknowing
'Letterip' in the Wednes
day Daily Nebraskan, I
would like to clarify and
-correct a few points in the
opinionated Mr. Stuckey's
comments. First, Mr. Sam
ples WAS 'ill at ease" in
performing the duties of
Master of Ceremonies. How
else can you explain the
constant shifting of weight
from one foot to the other,
the fumbling "with the mi
crophone, thp verbal hesi
tations and stiffness, and
the distracting drumming
of his fingers on his thumbs.
Such expressions of nerv
ousness can be cured in
fundamental speech courses
in Temple Building. (These
fundamental courses, by
the way, are not held in the
basement of Temple Build
ing, but on the second and
third floors.) I have been
in the same English class
as Mr. Sampls, and I re
spect him as a student and
person. However, as a Mas
ter of Ceremonies, Huckle
berry Hound is more effec
tive. Second, those . 'well
spiced' jokes of Mr. Sam
ples WERE offensive, if not
to one's decency, to the au
dience's expectation for en
tertainment originality (reg
ognize this word). Look at
recent issues of Playboy
magazine, and you can find
the origin of most of these
relayed jokes. If these jokes
were not offensive to the
majority of the audience
gathered in Pershing Muni
cipal Auditorium, perhaps
a 'new Victorian age IS
. Third, the statement,
"but "Inside View"' would
rate it poor cheap effects;
no imagination' shows Mr.
Stuckey's ignorance con
cerning previous "Inside
View" articles. Of its five
previous appearances, "In
side View" has included
comments on the literary
value of this year's Univer
sity Theatre season, two
articles containing short re
views of current films (film
that were more negative
than positive, as any dis
criminating film goer
could judge), a 'rave' re
view of the excellent "Sons
and Lovers," and the re
view of Kosmet Klub's "His
torical Hysterics."
I cannot understand Mr.
Stuckey's concern over the
review of the Kosmet Klub
show, since the review was
obviously more positive
than negative. Mr. Stuckey
should realize that almost
everyone involved in an art
form knows perfection is
impossible, but strives for
that near-perfection defined
by the highest criteria. Why
should standards be lowered
and ineffective entertain
ment recognized when
many performers and per
formances achieve this
near-perfection, i.e., Phi
Delt Jim Peterson's "Ban
jo Solo" and Phi Psi's "The
Spirit's the Thing" skit.
Yes, the "Phi Delt
Folk Trio" was recognized,
but why should they bo
highly praised when they
could have done so much
Fourth, I would like to
know where Mr. Stuckey ob
tained his experience and
education enabling him to
criticize an entertainment.
I was unaware that such
training in the entertain
ment arts was offered in
Lincoln's Demnltmn Church

the College of Business Ad
ministration. C e r t a i nly,
everyone Is guaranteed the
right to their own opinions,
but Mr. Stuckey's comments
are almost solely opinion
ated without a knowledge
able base.
Fifth, if at any time I
feel that I cannot give an
unbiased and correct re
view of a University
Theatre production, I will,
resign as reviewer (Note:
not critic) for the Daily
Nebraskan. The University
Theatre productions
in which I may have a ,
technical position or no po
sition, I will review; those
productions in which I may
be in the caast, I will
get some 'qualified' person
to write the review. You,
Mr. Stuckey, found yourself
'qualified' in the Wednes
day Daily Nebraskan to
write approximately 20 col
umn inches on the Kosmet
Klub Show and the Home
coming Parade. I was nev- .
er before aware that any
one person could be so well
informed. 'Speaking of
qualifying, Mr. Stuckey
try it yourself opinionated!'
