Communist Workl
Seen In Chicago!
The Daily Nebraskan received through a news service I
a news storv irora the editor of the Chicago Maroon, of
ficial student newspaper of the University of Chicago.
It may bear some interest to our readers and, at the
same time, certainly demands editorial comment.
The editor told of being chased by eight. men of the
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) by automobile
when he (the Editor) was escorting Dan Rubin, editor of
the left-wing newspaper "New Horizons for Youth," to the
EI station in Chicago. The headline over the story is en
titled "US Gives Students a 'Fun Time.' " The entire story
is written quite lightly in an attempt to make a farce of the
FBI activity. The final paragraph in the story reads:
"We can only thank whoever is responsible for a most
pleasurable experience. After all, it isn't very often that
our fun and the National Security coincide."
But why would this story be of interest to us?
Mr. C. D. DeLoach, assistant director of the FBI, in
an address before national convention of the National
Council of College Publications Advisers in Miami, Fla.
earlier this year had this to say of "New Horizons for
Youth" and Dan Rubin: 'Typical of other communist
propoganda outlets, 'New Horizons for Youth' warmly
praises the Soviet Union on one hand, and undermines
faith in the United States on the other. Its editor, Daniel
Rubin, is National Youth Director of the Communist
Party, USA." The Chicago Maroon story should now be
of interest to us all.
The story said that Rubin was at the University of
Chicago to address the "Chicago Students for Civil Lib
erties." DeLoach of the FBI also noted in his speech in
tensified communist activities designed to push commu
nism into schools. One of these he called "an intensive
speech campaign one which has seen Party functionaries
appear at colleges and universities from New York to Cal
ifornia." The Maroon editor's attempt to make .a. farce of
the FBI's work with communists in this nation and his
association with the national youth director of the Com
munist Party is deplorable. The least that can be said
of this individual is that he is walking on thin ice by at
tempting to take the entire situation too lightly.
Our main objective in bringing this situation to light
is twofold:
1. There is an active, working communist conspiracy
to plant communism in American college campus. The
- illustration above should bear this out and bring the
point a little closer to home.
2. We, as members of the University community,
must strive to acquaint ourselves with the efforts of
Communists to invade our invlrons in order to repel any
possible future attempts directed towards us.
It is our strong conviction that we do not have
evidence of communistic growth on his campus. As De
Loach pointed out in Miami, the communists need a
favorable environment to grow in. Where they can
not find a start, they cannot achieve their goals. Com
munists need a weak and uninformed student body and
even a weaker assemblence of student organizations.
They can find neither situation on this campus. However,
. It is our most important obligation to keep informed and
perceptive enough to thwart the threat facing every col
lege campus "from New York to California."

Nuclear Testing, Action in Vietnam
lAre Necessary for United States
Eric Sevareid
Washington, D. C.
Much, as a 16th Century
writer put it, "hangs in
the uncertain balance of
proud time," and the di
rectors o
A m e rican
world poli
cy are now
s t niggling
rather des
perately to
get their
priorities in
order with
one eye
c onstantly
on the cal
endar. Decisive trains of
events are moving at
drastically differing rates
of speed.
Berlin and the Congo
are net, in spite of the
headlines, the current
agonies where the quick
est and most far reaching
decisions most be made.
There Is, for the moment,
no deadline on Berlin, and
this government cannot
control the course of
events in the Congo, al
though dismay is setting
in at the highest levels
and newly returned emis
saries are insisting that
the UN either conciliate
Katanga province or get
out of it.
It is on the questions of
further atomic testing and
Vietnam that decisions
must be made. Both issues
are imbued with the most
exquisite pain and neither
will wait. The Atomic
Energy Commission has
assured the country that
in spite of the Soviets
recent series of 50 bomb
tests, the balance of nu
clear strength still rests
with us. So it does, but
the intelligence commun
ity here U admitting that
once again, the speed of
I Russian atomic weapons
progress has been under-
estimated. They have
I solved the problems of the
smaller, more efficient
1 warheads and are already
getting into mass produc-
I tion of the "second gen-
eration" weapons.
1 The President has swung
f back and forth on the
f question of our resuming
atmospheric tests, and
I right now be is twinging
forth the current dis-
position is to go ahead and
I test. The most violent ub-
jection is likely to come
e from British public opin-
ion. Partly for this reason,
I partly for reasons of bet-
ter facilities for test stud-
Its, be may ask Prime
i Minister MacMillan at
Bermuda, a 'ew days
hence, for the use of Bri
tain's great missile range
in Australia. Wherever the
tests are made, we need
the public agreement of
our chief ally that they
are necessary.
We also desperately
need the support and the
participation of our allies
for further action in South
Vietnam. The plain truth
is that the Communist in
vaders are winning fhe
war for the peninsula.
J jU
This struggle is at the
point where the "inciting
event," as playwrights
call it, could occur at any
moment a defeat, a de
fection, an exposure, an
Act of God, one of those
key happenings from
which men engaged in
postmortems date all that
subsequently unrolls. If
South Vietnam can be lost
rather quickly, it can be
won only slowly, and at
great cost, in the pattern
of Britain's five-year
campaign to glean up Ma
laya. Even short of Amer
ican fighting troops, the
more we put into Vietnam
now, the more we shall
probably have to put in
later. It is that kind of
situation. We are getting
plenty of advice from the
French and British, but
little else, v and the more
we increase our own
pawns in the region, the
less not the more in
clined will our allies be
to join us', since sophis
ticated governments in
this world are not shamed
into action by the exam
ple of others.
Our Geneva negotiators
on the Laos agreement
report the Russian diplo
mats to be totally arro
gant on the subject of Vi
etnam and sweetly rea
sonable on the subject of
Laos. The explanation of
this duality almost surely
has to be that the Soviets
are certain that South Vi
etnam b going to collapse
and that, therefore, they
need not press hard in
little Laos, which is far
lest Important and is like
ly to disintegrate gently
like a rotten fruit once
the fate of Vietnam and
U.S. prestige in Southeast
Asia is sealed.
"Proud time," as ex
pertly managed by Nikita
Khrushchev, presses us
less cruelly on the matter
of Berlin. The famous
wall has done that as well
as the American troop,
movements. Khrushchev
can now afford to sit back
for a time and observe
with detatchment as the
Allies argue in public
over the order of t h e i r
march toward negoti
ations, a movement which
President DeGaulle, as
this is written, still re
gards with contempt as a
journey to Canossa. It is
possible, according to my
own information that the
Americans will make the
march alone. If the French
stay behind, the British
are inclined to hand over
their power of attorney to
Secretary Rusk, making
the talks strictly bilateral.
This too is apt to be set
tled at Bermuda, a
meeting for which the
British pressed in order to
complete the round of
twosomes and to put Mac
millan publicly back in
the picture.
The Bermuda agenda is
growing. Even the deci
sion on American invest
ment in the Volta River
dam project, in the land
of the increasingly un
pleasant and alarming
Kwame Njrumah, is now
scheduled to be made in
the President's meeting
with the British on those
cedar-crested Atlantic is
lands where everyone
speaks softly, including
the normally exuber
ant West Indian Negroes.

Today, Eloise presents the
story of another cf them
menaces which we as stu
dents of a grand university
must join arms, . sit down
upon and raise protest
against for heavens sake.
, The menace is that some
persons are trying to dry
up our beloved dessert and
develop of all things a
spark" of interest in literary
(ha) things and stuff.
Well, let .them beware
that we don't need that
kind of learning, and that
we tough, cornfed, brawney,
ugh, hrumph, haw haw
stomp (in barnyard covered
boots) cough guffaw, grimy
knuckled Nebraskans are
not worried that they can
pentrate our tough hides
with that stuff.
Why don't we need it?
Well . . .
Haven't we got enough
stuff to read already? The
Union provides a wonderful
place to buy books, I mean
there a lot nice mystery
and science fiction books
we can read with our spare
time,- and look at all we
learn from them.
Why, I head that the lit
tle literary book we used to
have cost a quarter or 35
cents, well for heaven's
sake, that's one package of
cigarettes, and 2 cokes and
a package of gum, or may
be we can rent some cards
or pingpong balls or some
thing with that much mon
ey. And where do they ex
pect poor students to find
enough time to read that
literary stuff? Why, after
our busy day of unionizing
from 10 to noon, and from
2 to at llast 5, interspersed
with a few class periods,
then a trip to the Grill and
shooting the bull with our
fellow housing unit c o m
panions, where are we go
ing to in our busy day find
time to read it?
Anyway, if we could
find time in our busy days
to read it, it takes time to
think and understand what
it says, and that is about
the biggest problem, and
time consuming thing for

future a little
more than money with
us here to do in a day. I
mean, when we can sit
down and discuss our
coaches, or who got kicked
out of school recently, or
how funny those long black
socks look on girls and
where will I park anyway
where there is no place in
the free, no metered-nasty
Selleck lot, or who got
pinned to who or did you
hear the latest about Edna
or whatever will we do
about our activity point
system or why weren't you
at Builders last night?
That's just fine, because we
don't even usually think
about what we say.
, Why should we give
them funny students who
write a chance to express
their talents? I mean, any
one who is so different that
he writes and stuff like that
must be a Communist be
cause none of my friends
sitting here in the Union be
side me write, and we all
wear sneakers and trench
coats and are in Buz-Ad, or
Teachers and are all very
normal and collegeish, and
anyway, we wouldn't let
' watching the rest of t h e
world go- by if he wasn't
just like the rest of us.
Anyway, we can't let
anything like this which is
so different from our every
day college rah, rah, lives,
enter into the picture be
cause it may prompt us to
begin to think, and anyone
knows that's just something
people out of college do,
and it might make us wake
up and realize that there
are othet- things which are
of value and importance
other than our classes, the
Union, and the Grill which
occupy so much of our
shallow, collegeish minds.
