headlined a story, "Vaca
tion Invitations Unfilled,
Foreign Students Question
Sincerity." Immediately
below the story was an
' other headline, "Interna
tional Association Forms
The explanation of the
former was that a number
of invitations from families
in Beatrice, Henderson and
Lincoln, were extended to
foreign students, to spend
the holiday in the homes of
these families. Uncertainty
as to the sincerity of the
invitations was given as a
possible reason for the
lack of acceptances by the
foreign students.
The timeliness of this
story with that of the plans
for the forming of an in
ternational group, com
posed of both foreign and
American students inter
ested in the exchange of
ideas, would seem to indi
cate that the foreign stu
dents may have some rea
son for their skepticism
about the sincerity of the
Thanksgiving invitations.
One thing is certain.
They haven't formed this
opinion on the basis of feel
ings against the persons
extending the invitations.
If they have reason to
doubt their sincerity, it is
because they doubt the sin
cerity of students on this
campus. And if they have
formed such an opinion of
us, they have done so with
considerable foundation. We

Sunday we will know how
deep this feeling lies in the
minds of the foreign stu
dents. That evening those
who are interested in form
ing an international organ
ization will meet to discuss
the proposed plan. A small
turnout of foreign students I
will indicate that they are
skeptical also of this plan j
for such an organization.
Likewise, small turnout of j
American students will in- j
dicate that the foreign stu
dent still has good reason
for being skeptical.
These students aren't
looking for charity and
sympathy because they
have darker skins or speak
with an accent They want
to be Cornhuskers just like
you and me. They want to
be treated like your fra
ternity brother or sorority j
sister, even though t h e y i
can't be one.

complete indictment of the j

There is a representative group of
excellent canasta players who every
Wednesday at 4:00 hold vital seminars
to discuss 6uch pertinent topics as
parking facilities, problems with 0'
of the faculty, and the ever present
problem of Library Hours.
This same group has been
designated the power to cope
and hanule almost any situation
that they feel is lacking, defunct,
antiquated or intolerable, and this
editor must admit that the parking problem
is definitely something to overcome.
Tiw Wisconsin Student Council did
away with ROTC, but we must admit
it is far better to recline or stellar
pyres and shed acid tears and unloved sighs
over Library Hours, which afterall
should play a definite role in .
Student Affairs.
We can also see that the Campus
Beautification Committee is or was
just a flowery equinox.
It is also of unparalleled importance
to have a Community Sing in A flat

standing afterall who needs a calendar?
Twenty-seven is an odd number anyway.

Conservative Estimate

Pay to the Order of the
Student Body a great
big fat No Fund check.
If words were face

conservative estimate of
the recent writings" of "G.
S.," Leon Gosip, H. W.
Shortfellow and others
who criticize the Student

bers and the Council's ac
tions without any concep
tion of what is actually go

Legitimate criti
cism, such as that in the
editorial "A Liberal View"
on Tuesday, the Council
needs and invites, but when
would-be-rabble rousers like
Gosip and G.S. launch an
attack with no knowledge,
it is rather discouraging.
If all those who have
criticisms of . the Council
could manage to trundle
up to a meeting at 4 p.m.
on Wednesdays I'm confi
dent that they would re
ceive attention.
(Admittedly there is not
much chance of a person
who' is afraid to sign his
name to what he writes
speaking his views in pub
lic but we could always go
into "executive session.")
It's very easy to pick up

criticisms, hand them in,
and then sit back and wait
for them to hit print and
watch the Council mem
bers squirm I question
whether or not the Coun
cil's brave critics would be
quite so debonair on the
Council floor where they
might possibly find an an-v
swer to their attacks and
an explanation of their mis
information. To get specific, "Gosip"
in his Tuesday masterpiece
blasts the Council for
"racking worthwhile cam
pus organizations" and in
the same breath suggests
that we "abolish" the All
University Fund and
"condemn" the Board of
G.S. in relation to the
All University Open House
asserts boldly "Does this
prohibit the Council from
searching for a program to
replace the Open House
and sell our institution to
thousands of high school
students throughout the
state?" Good idea G.S.
Good idea that is ex
actly what the Council is
doing right now sorry
they couldn't come up with
a complete plan in a week
but then the work involved
isn't as easy as knocking
out an editorial without re
gard to facts.
