It Is Too Important
The important selections and activities on this cam

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

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.

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

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
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
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.

ation of democracy as we
know it today.
