Wednesday, May 3, 1951 Page 2 The Nebraskan .:$?& By Dick S '.u ckcy EDITORIAL OPINION 1 'I I a ' I i ( it ! Don't Forget To Vote It Is Too Important The important selections and activities on this cam pus will not cease on Ivy Day as some are inclined to think. The biggest and most important compus election of the year follows close on the heels of the new mystics and promises something new in the way of excitement and close competition this year. There are several reasons for this; one being the fact that 77 University students (compared to 49 last year have entered the Council race. Perhaps this only means that Council is now the activity in which campus aspirants should show an interest. But from the caliber of the Council Candidate ques tionnaires which the Daily Nebraskan has received from Council contenders, it appears that the students in the race are definitely interested in Council for what it does and not .the prestige such a position might afford. Not one of the incumbents, thus far, has failed to recognize the responsibilities of a Council member to the group he represents. Most have also recognized the greatest weakness of the present Council to be the com munication problem between the students and Council men. Suggestions for Council projects show more than just "surface thinking" evolved on the spur of the moment to satisfy the questionnaire. The majority of the contenders have cited repre sentation and communication as the two main areas which need further Council investigation. Platforms have contained intelligent criticism of both the present representation plan and the living district plan recently considered by the Council. Others have sug gested the possibility of a workable compromise between the two systems. The candidates are showing an active interest in our student government. The voters of this campus should also show the same interest by informing themselves on the issues of the elections, supporting the candidates they feel are best qualified and voting in the election on Monday, May 8.

If" mmmmmmmmmmm - W, I (TV 1 V fl I Uf I A K 'IPW VUNt IP I Daily Nebraskan Don't Underestimate Russian Visitors members, had an education that I am sure very few of them will forget. I The most shocking fact to many of the hosts was the great love that the Rus 1 sian visitors had for their home-land; their way of life l and their own intelligence. Many of us today think that the Russian is a surpressed, I oppressed, and dumb indi- vicinal since he allows the state to do his thinking for him in political matters. are always nrsi. ine oeuei that the Russian will ever revolt against his govern ment is utter fantasy. Understanding this reli gion of the State, we can fully realize why the Rus sians put satellites and missies in the air while the United States places its premium on the security of the individual first, then the ITS THE MOST STUPID THING I'VE EVER HEARD OF IT'S 5TUPll STUPID, STUPID ! WITH THAT "GREAT X PUMPKIN" BUSINESS : V A6AIN, DO VOU Y 7i: I I . II VOU HAVE JUST OFFENDED ONE OF CHILDHOOD'S MOST CHERISHED BELIEFS'. EAT WHILE WE TAUM nation. The Russian people freely sacrifice living standards for the advance ment of the State, whether it be Sputniks or winning the Olympics. The basic factor we fail to understand in showing them how we live in the land of opportunity, is that we put life ahead of ' gov ernment. The Russians know that they do not have television sets, telephones in many homes, two auto mobile families, and credit cards as we have in the United States; ,yet they don't ! care because they have a Gagarin who is as much of a hero to the world as Columbus was in his first voyage across the ocean. How does this all corre late into theseproud visi tors from th Soviet Un ion? The pride of State is writ ten in all that they say and their actions in carefully studying the American and his farms, .his factories, and his schools. The Lin coln newspapers : strongly criticized the Russians for not entering in a give and take news conference on political issues. These peo ple are not the political leaders of their country nor do they formulate views, about the State; the State is always right and thus what the State answers Is their answer. To us this is not understandable since we believe in the freedom of expression. This is the big difference in the two comparative governments. The Russians were well organized with a chain of command of three supervi sors, each having the task of formulating policy for the group. One was the leader, the other two took over for him in case of his absence or in case some thing should happen to him. Their amazement at the progress of the United States farmer could be seen in their faces in their tour of the farming area. They copied down facts and fig ures, a goal for them to meet; yet they fully real ized that they could not meet this overnight. They covered the failure of the Russian State to match this production with a challenge to the people concerned that they too will someday overtake us in production. They were amazed by our communications, our trans portation, and our luxuries. It doubtlessly, made a very deep impression upon them. With their questioning minds, they many times put their hosts on the spot by asking differences be tween political parties, dif ferences of educational pol icies, and isn't it collective to share several farming implements with your neigh bors. The host committee also did a very good job in questioning about segregation in Russia, cen sorship of newspapers, and lack of true educational op portunity for all in the So viet Union. The big thing to remem 4 Letterips ber about the Russian is that he is a very intelligent person, he has a goal to fight for, and given the op portunity, he will try to have his country control the world. We, in the United States, must never underrate the ability of our ..competitors.. , We, as stu r.rdents , must get the most out of our education to cope with the battle for power which will develop in our generation and future gen ' erations over what is right for the world, freedom for ourselves or state control. "Underestimation is the ruin ation of democracy as we know it today.
