Latvian Woman Paints Picture
Of Iron Curtain Life for YDs
By Norm Beatty
"Will the Communists ever
take over the United States?"
"If the Russians take this
country how will they do it?"
"What can we do to stop
the Communists?"
These were only three of
several questions students
raised test week at the Young
Democrats meeting where a
speaker painted a remark
able story of life behind the
iron curtain.
The speaker was a small
woman in her late fifties who
smiled as she spoke in brok
en English. Her story, how
ever, was crowded with tre
bles she and her family en
countered while living under
the Nazi regime headed by
Adolph Hitler and the "Im
perialist Communists."
Her name will be withheld
to protect her daughter still
living in Europe under the
Russians but her words will
Life Under Russians
The speaker told the Uni
versity students that life un
der the Russians today is hard
ly different from the life the
Latvians had under the Nazis
during and before World War
- "After the War the Russians
deported 40,000 Latvians to Si
beria. The Nazis . . . took
the young men for their
army," she compared.
In Latvia today there is
"much fear," the Lincoln res
ident said. "There is no edu
cation for the young ... my
daughter's husband was tor
tured by the Russians after
the war," the woman stam
mered nervously when she re
fered to her daughter still
living in Latvia with her hus
band who is now nearly in
capacitated but te a c h e s
After World War II, the
speaker noted, "we were
promised a higher standard
of living by the Russians. This
is not true."
Low Wages
The average worker received
350 to 400 rubles per month.

Tuition Raise Receives
Majority Aceeptanc
By Harriett Keller
Favorable reactions to the
University's increased tuition
rate for next year have been
voiced by 10 of 20 students
polled on campus.
The remainder of those
questioned were split into two
groups one group of six de
cidedly negative and a group
of four who were not particu
larly concerned.
An increase in the tuition
rate of $12 has been approved
for next year and will make
resident tuition $132 and tui
tion for non-Nebraskans, $252.
Among the students ex
pressing favorable reactions
was Pat Egan, a sophomore
studying pre - law. "We're
lucky to have such a cheap
tu'.tion.". he said, "with the
cost of everything else going
up, tuition has to be included
and it is at a minimum in
Not Unreasonable
"I don't think it is unrea

Marilyn Leighton, a sopho

said "It seems like it still
isn't as much as other col

reason for increasing it."
Another Teachers College

said, "It's worth it. It doesn't

' it will benefit the University."
'if it's necessary to raise

was not too familiar with the
tuition system as it did not
exist in his country. "But,"
he said, "Nebraska's tuition
rate seems reasonable in
comparison with other campuses."

Also in favor of the increase
was Chuck Borchman, junior
in Business Administration,
who said, "It's all right-it
should help the University."
Veretta Dorf, a sophomore
in Business Administration,
agreed. "It isn't too much.
There's no cause to worry be
cause it wouldn't have been
raised if it wasn't necessary,"
she said.
Students expressing nega
tive reactions to the rate in
crease included Hilary Las
sek who said, "I'm strictly
against it." He is sophomore
in Arts and Sciences.
"Naturally, I'm against it.
I'm paying my own way
through school and every in
crease makes it harder," said
Phil Schenck, sophomore in
Arts and Sciences.
Too Much
Mary Eager, a sophomore
in Business Administration.
; said that she did not favor the
increase because "I think it
is just too much to pay."
"I don't approve," said Car
ol Johnson, freshman in Biz
Ad, "as long as the school
gets money from the state
there is no need to make the
students pay more."
Another negative reaction
was that of Iraj Azimzadeh
who said, "I think it is pretty
expensive now and as a for-1
eign student, I don't know
how I'm going to afford it."
Find Another Way
Bill Paxton, a senior in en

were quite favorable.
As a result of the study,
schools throughout the nation
are inquiring about Nebras

and the use of Sustogene in
conjunction with college ath

Sustogene consists of pre

vitamins, minerals and car

hours before the game were
not completely digested by
game time. This resulted in
stomach upset as well as de
tering the players energy.
It was known that liquids
leave the stomach much
quicker than solid foods so
it was postulated that perhaps
a liquid food such as Susto
gene might be effective.
According to Dr. Rose, the
players felt better both before
and during a game. "The
football team was very highly
satisfied with the Sustogene
diet and used it all through
the season."
Sustogene is now used in all
University sports.
