May Queen Represents
True Campus Royalty
Today thirty-two female candidates will vie for the
tea finalist positions in the May Queen election. The ten
lucky winners'will square off at the polls at a later date
for the Queen and her maid of honor.
Only junior and senior
With all seriousness to the people who have put so
much time planning this election, we urge all the junior
and senior coeds to get out and vote.
However, a majority of the non-queen minded people
on campus, will also breathe a sigh of relief, for this will
be the last major queen election for another year.
Our University is unique in this respect. We have a
neen lor just about everything and anything. Perhaps
there are too many queens on campus.
The honor of being queen of this or queen of that
seems to detract from the actual honor. We believe that
a queen, In some activities, is a necessary part of campus
life, but do we need a queen to represent every organiza
tion on campus?
It is unfortunate that there are so many queen elec
tions, for when the time comes to choose a true queen,
the campus is all queened out
The Catacombs
There is probably nothing
in the world that is greater
than idealism nothing
greater than standing on a
soap-box and screaming for
the betterment of man, for
a bigger and better Univer
sity and for bigger and bet
ter anything. On the other
hand, there isprobably
nothing worse than just
standing there and exhort
ing in favor of something,
unless you have some con
structive advice to offer.
Standing up and calling
people slobs and hurling in
vectives at them because
they dont measure up to
one's ideals is about as
useful as trying to drive
north down sixteenth street
you're bound to get hit
sooner or later, and it will
probably be sooner.
Ii this day of moaning
because the youth of Ne
braska are leaving and
beaJing for the east or
west, or wherever we are
supposed to be going, the
only saggettiea made
seems for as to stick it out,
and see if we can't make
something better of the sit
uation. Youth doesn't want
to be told that they are go
ing to be given something
on a silver platter if they
remain, tbey just want to
know that the "something"
is there, and the majority
of them wouldn't mind too
much getting out and grov
eling for it.
As far as the campus
goes, the students here are
not using some of the talent
that is here to its utmost,
and to their best advan
tage. At the University we
have some three hundred
faculty members, the ma
jority of which have some
interest to a certain degree
to the students. For the
most part instructors would
not be teaching unless they
enjoyed working with the
'leaders of tomorrow."
However, their interest
tends to be subjected by
the students who think-of
them only in terms of
grades, term papers,
methods of getting recom
mendations and grades.
Contrary to the common
misconception of some per
sons, teachers are not evil
beasts whose main delight
is failing a certain per cent
of their classes. They are
humans like the rest of us
and would probably like to
have a closer relationship
with the students. The prob
lem is that the students
often deny them this oppor
tunity. This writer it not advo
cating that every student
rus over and start patting
bis teachers oi tbe back
and have a big heart to
heart talk with them about
the last quiz or downs or
the problems ofwrltlag
term papers. Needless to
say, that it what teachers
are here for, tbey get paid
for that But aside from
this tbey also have an in
terest in students at peo
ple. The other day yours truly
