Entertainment Due:
Groups Defy Gold
Apparently the icy winds and sub-freezing tempera
tures have not frozen everyone. Despite the weather
and the accompanying temptation to stay home nights by
the fire, a great many efforts are presently formulating
to rouse the campus population out of their hibernation
for a great deal of entertainment.
Selections for the annual Coed Follies show were
made last night by the Associated Women's Students
v (AWS) as what seemed like hundreds of girls flocked
to the Student Union to participate in the tryouts. The
show is slated for Feb. 23 where the Cornhusker year
book will take the opportunity to announce the 1962
beauty queen and eligible bachelor finalists. The com
bination of the skits and the fresentations should be
welcomed by all after a rather slow season entertainment-wise.
Kosmet Klub, undisputed leader of those who at
tempt to entertain the students and faculty by develop
ing home grown talent, will be announcing the cast for
their spring production of "Guys and Dolls," the second
half of their yearly presentation. If past productions
are any indication of what lies in the future, an evening
' of professional-like entertainment will .await everyone
March 31.
Another group is also engrossed in bringing more en
tertainment to the campus at the moment. We are
speaking of the Student Union workers in the Talks and
Topics and Special Activities organizations. The earli
est entertainment is the appearance of satirist, author
and lecturer Richard Armour next Thursday. The spe
cial Activities group will present entertainer Ahmad
Jamal February 8 after second semester gets under
way. These two events only add to the constant forms
of entertainment available in the Student Union.
"All in all it appears that the spring thaw has al
ready arrived on campus dispite the snow and below
zero temperatures. These are the things which make
University life constantly interesting as well as profita
ble outside the classroom.
What's Happening?

Final exams always bring a certain amount of con
fusion, but this year that has been added to by certain
errors in the final exam schedule.

On FiKjiis and Things
It's now 1962. This in it
self is not 'too startling of
a statement. However, if
one thinks ahead in pen
spective, it is not to hard
to see
that '' this

how it creeps from day
to day in its petty pace
signifying nothing will
certainly be out of place
this year as it was last
and will be in the future.
There is nothing petty or
insignificant about a
struggle, not only for
power, but for life itself
when it encompasses the
entire world's population.
On" the international
scene, 1962 will probably
be a rubber stamp of 1961.
The United States and the
system of democratic
countries are not about to
give up the struggle for
freedom any more than
the Russians and the com
munist bloc are ready to
halt their erosion of de
mocracy nor ebb their de
sire of world conquest.
War? I don't think so.
Now days it is much
harder to start a war than
in ages past. Subtle slaps
in the diplomatic face
doesn't start world wars
any longer. As has been
said by the President and
others the real danger is
from within . . . mass
hysteria. Such groups as
the John Birch Society
and Minute Men are such
dangers from within. It is
groups like these that de
stroy national spirit and
confltence in not only
America's leaders (refer
ring to D w i g h t Eisen
hower as a communist)
but in our fellow country
men by tabbing every
shadow as communist.
This gives the number of
communist in this country
and the party as a world
