Cynicism Prevalent
In Today's Society
I To the editor:
The labels of "imprac
tical" and "idealistic"
which have been attached
to the Peace Corps reflect
attitudes of materialism and
cynicism which are increas
ingly prevalent in today's
society. The idea that a
man will sujugate his de
sires of wealth, comfort,
and security to those such
as empathy, and philan
thropy seems so preposterous
to many of us that we
merely dismiss the man
with the convenient label
of "an idealist."
These attitudes reflect the
Americanism of today the
America in w hich the phrase
"almighty dollar" is uttered
not without reverence; a so
ciety which consistently
lives above its income; a
country in which success is
not measured in personal
satisfaction, or evei in ac
tual achievement, but in an
individual's ability to keep
up with the Jones's or to
put on a good front.
Such is the nation which
created, and yet seems to
despair this idealism. Cau
tion is necessary, but at
tempts to discourage an al
ready too cynical youth can
lead only to ill.
A fear of expressing a
desire for asthetic values is
all too common today. We
cynical and satirical youth
are afraid to present our
dreams to others for fear of
having them shattered. Why
not soften up live for these
ideals and don't be afraid
to stand up for them or to
express them.
However, the Peace Corps
doesn't need just aa idealist
anv more than it wants a
strict so-called "realist."
The men and women who
are to be our embassaries
and who will accomplish
the ends which tbey are
charged with must be, if you
will excuse the phrase, realistic-idealists.
There must
be people w ho will not easily
be disillusioned by the hard
ships which they will be
called upon to carry.
The Peace Corps should
be a part of everyone here
at the University we stu
dents can do more to show
the true Americanism than
any other Americans.
It has to start here we
can't acquire ideals as soon
as we enter a foreign coun
trywhy not attend a NIA
meeting Why not?

Action IS'eeded
Against Subrosas
To the editor,
What is wrong with the
Administration and the stu
dent body on this campus?
Why aren't they backing
this fight against the sub
rosa organizations? Is it be
cause they're cowards or is
it because they're members
of the Red Dots, TNE's, or
the Pi Xi's.
It won't be a pretty pic
ture when the students fi
nally realize that the sub
rosa organizations will have
completely taken over this
campus. These groups will
exercise so much power
that every one of ns wDI be
like a needle In a hay
stack. Do you think your
votes will actually count in
important elections? NO!
These subrosa organizations
wifl choose whoever they
want, whether it be a cam
pus queen or' the president
of the IFC or PanheL Tell
me, do you want this cam
pus to be dictatorial or do
you want it to be demo
cratic? Take your choice.
The April 11th editorial of
the Daily Nebraskan print
ed .what eight national so
cial fraternities on t h i s
campus had to" say about
subrosa organizations, but
evidently they don't enforce
these policies. If the fra
ternities are so much
against these groups, why
don't they do something
about it, or, as we said
once before, are they cow
ards? It's time for the students
wake up. The minute you
shut your eyes on a situa
tion such as this, you are
inviting trouble. It's high
time everyone takes action.
Express your views, get the
subrosa members out of
the fraternity and sorority
houses, get them out of high
offices, get tbem off this
If every one of you want
to support these atrocious,
nonethical groups, go
ahead, but there are still a
few students on this cam
pus who will fight it out
until the very end. Let's
breathe free air once again
on the University of Ne
braska campus.

To the editor.
After reading the articles
appearing in the Daily Ne
braskan about subrosas, I
have become more fully
aware of the similarities be
tween these subroasas and
the major deterrent to the
free way of life . . . TO
this dramatic statement
may bring plenty of laughs
from some of the students
on the campus. But if one
stops and looks at how the
fascists and communists get
their starts, there is a sim
ilarity especially to fas
cism. Tascism has been
made well known by the
Germans in World War II.
Among other things, its
doctrine is based on the de
nial of human equality and

it is not a Greek Weak.

academic robes with hoods of different colors?" Everybody
but everybody a asking it. I mean I haven't been able to walk
ten feet on any campus in America without somebody grabs my
elbow and says, "How did the different disciplines come to be
marked by academic robes with hoods of different colors, bey?"
This, I must say, is not the usual question aAed by collegians
who grab my elbow. Usually they say, "Hey, Shorty, got a
Marlboro?" And this is right and proper. After all, are they not
collegians, and, therefore, the nation's leaders in intelligence
and discernment? And do not intelligence and discernment de
mand the tastiest in tobacco flavor and smoking pleasure? And
does not Marlboro deliver a flavor that is uniquely mellow, a

Well sir, to answer this vexing question, we must go bade to
March 29, 1844. On that date the first public library in U
United States was established by Ulric Sigafoos. AM of Mr.
Sigafoos's neighbors were of course wildly grateful all, that
is, except Wrei Todhunter.
Mr. Todhunter had hated Mr. Sigafoos since 1822 when both
men bad wooed the beauteous Melanie Zitt and Melanie had
cbosen Mr. Sigafoos because be was mad for dancing aod Mr.
Sigafoog knew all the latest steps, like the Missouri Compromise
Mambo, the Shay's Rebellion Schottiscbe, and the James K.
Polk Polka, while Mr. Todhunter, alas, eouM not dance at al
owing to a wound be had received at the Battle of New Orleans.
(He was struck by a falling praline.)
Consumed with jealousy at the success of Mr. SgatWs
library, Mr. Todhunter resolved to open a competing library.
This he did, but be lured not a single patron away from Mr.
Sigafoos, "What has Mr. Sigafoos got that I haven't got?" Mc
Todhunter kept asking himself, and finally the answer came to
him: books.
So Mr. Todhunter stocked Lis library with lots of dandy books
and soon he was doing more business than his hated rival.
But Mr. Sigafoos struck back. To regain his clientele, be began
emng tea free of charge at his library every afternoon. There
upon, Mr. Todhunter, not to be outdone, began serving tea
with rugar. Thereupon, Mr. Sigafoos began serving tea with
sugar and cream. Thereupon, Mr. Todhunter began servicr
tea with sugar and cream and lemon.
This, of course, clinched the victory for Mr. Todhunter be
cause he had the only lemon tree in town -in fact, in the entire,
state of North Dakota-and since that day lemon yellow has of
course been the color on the academic robes of library science.
(Incidentally, the defeated Mr. Sigafoos packed up bis library
and moved to California where, alas, be faUed once more. There
were, to be sure, plenty of lemons to serve with his tea, but,
alas, there was no cream because the cow was not introduced

An example is when the
ideal of Greek Week itself
was brought into the public
eye this year a hail of crit
ics came out of the wall and
condemned Greek Week on
the basis of its predecessors
before it had a chance to
work. Yet the IFC payed
no heed and pushed on to
the successful Greek Week
we now have.
Logically, then, the suc
cess of this year's Greek
Week is directly responsi
ble to both the individual
houses and the fine leader
ship of the Interfraternity
Council. Both should be
commended for showing
what the Greek houses
should and DO stand for
on this campus.
Aside from my preju
diced view, and the criti
cism of the independents,
the fraternities and sorori
ties play an integral part
in making this University
the respected institution it
is today.
