Policies on standards are being em
phasized by the two Associate Deans of
Student Affairs.
"A big part of our education is hav
ing cultivated manners and standards of
refinement," stated Miss Helen A. Sny
der, dean of women.
"If students do not learn standards
here, then they will have difficulty in
their later business and social lives be
cause college graduates are expected to
nave attained certain standards in their
dress, manners and social graces," ex
plained Frank M. Hallgren, dean of men.
Students should develop a discrimina
tory judgment of standards, for so many
situations and acts are not necessarily
wrong, but are in poor taste. They must
learn when and where certain actions are
done or not done, continued Miss Snyder.
She explained that some students fail
to realize their responsibilities in certain
areas and underestimate the impact of
some of the decisions they make. The
standard of fun should be more at the
college level. A standard of excellence
should be created so that the individual
should want to do what is a good thing
to do.
Standard Rules
"Our rules on standards are as much
educational as they are rules," concluded
The Deans' combined policy on drinking
is illustrated in three points:
1. The University expects all students
to obey the laws of the state which pro
hibit the possession and consumption of
alcoholic beverages by all who are under
twenty-one years of age and prohibits the
consumption of these beverages by all
persons on public highways, roads and
state property.
2. The University expects an students
to obey the University regulations which
prohibit the possession or consumption of
alcoholic beverages at all events spon
sored by any University organization or
3. The University does not interfere
with the legal possession or consumption .
of alcoholic beverages by students so long
as legal consumption and possession is not
at an event sponsored by a University
organization or group and the possession
or consumption does not result in conduct
beyond the limits of propriety and good
"These laws are enforced by the po
lice agencies," said Hallgren. "This office
takes action only on the basis of report,
whether it be by the agencies, by chap
erones or by citizens," he continued.
"We have no policy of snooping," re
lated Miss Snyder. "The rules are for
the protection of the students and the
"We entrust the officers of an or
ganization with the responsibility of its
parties, not the chaperones," she said.
"I feel very strongly that students
should respect their responsibility to obey
the state laws, since they cannot choose
which laws to obey. As soon as the
Greeks realize this, they can defend their
system better," she added.
IFC Control
As a member of the IFC Board of
Control, Hallgren explained that IFC is
free to exercise and control all internal
affairs of the fraternity system as long
as they are in accordance with the rules
set forth by the Faculty Senate Subcom
mittee on Student Organizations, of which
he is chairman. The fraternities may
be more restrictive, but not less restric
tive than this committee.
In relation to Panhellenic and A.W.S.,
Miss Snyder said that she feels the elect
ed representatives of these organizations
have assumed a great responsibility and
exercise good judgment. Sometimes
though, she said, the members at large
let their leaders down by failing to sup
port them.
Miss Snyder received her BA degree
from Lawrence College in Appleton, Wis
consin and her MA degree from North
western University. Hallgren received bis
AB and MA degrees from the University
and bis IA (Industrial Administrator) and
MBA (Bachelor of Business Administra
tion) from Harvard University.
Student Health Reports
Number of Flu Cases
Not Increasing at NU
Despite numerous rumors
of organized houses being
sick with the flu or colds,
Dr. S. I. Fuenning, medical
director of Student Health, re
ported yesterday, "We are not
aware of any marked in
crease." He explained that there
have been the usual number
of upper respiratory infec
tions, but that there had been
nothing out of the ordinary.
However, he added that
they are always on the look
out for any flu cases.

Small Group Hears Priest
Redemptorist Says Amazons
Are Enslaved in Communism
Nebraskan Staff Writer
Only sixteen students and five adults
turned out yesterday to hear Father
Thomas P. Morrissey describe the in
roads of Communism in the Amazon.
The ideas of Communism are atheis
tic, he began. Freedom of religion and
education are prohibited; families are
split up so that the children can be trained
in military schools beginning at the age
of three, and the mothers can work.
Over one million people have been
enslaved in Communism in the past 40
years, emphasized Father Morrissey.
"This is more men and women than have
heard of Christ. Five children are being
taught communism for every one child
who is being taught Christianity."
Americans have acquired four basic
ideas which have resulted in their ap
pathetic attitude toward the war against
Communism, he pointed out. They are:
Christian Nations
1. America is exempt from defeat
because she is a Christian nation. How
ever, he said, most of the nations that
have been taken over by Communism in
recent years were Christian nations.
2. America is unconquerable because
she has never been defeated. People
must realize though, he continued, that
we are at war now.
3. Americans believe that their gov
ernment and way of life is best so the
Communists will inevitably realize it and
convert. Students and other Americans
just don't realize the devotion and loyal
ty of the Communist party members,
Father Morrissey related.
4. Americans think that all Commu
nist takeovers have been on the other
6ide of the world. But, he pointed out,
Cuba is our next door neighbor. Com
munists have already broken up families
and built up the military there.
Anti-American Ideas
In the Amazon, along the northern
border of Brazil, students are spreading
anti-American ideas to the people of this
area, he explained. This has been very
effective because 85 of these people
are illiterate. The communists find out
what the people want, then promise it to
The priests are the only stronghold
that the free world has in the Amazon
region, he said. No one else is spreading
the idea of democracy and anti-communism
there. The Communists' plan for
1962 is to take over all the foreign
priests, then all of the Brazilian priests.
They have employed 24 girls in one
town alone to seduce the priests, he said.
"If the Communists win in South
America, they will have taken a giant
step in the Western World," commented
Father Morrissey, "and if they conquer
Brazil, then all Americans there (Bra
zil's only contact with the free world)
will have to flee."
"Therefore, we must initiate an ef
fective educational system in BraziL
Once the people learn what Communism
actually is, they can defeat it."
Boat Communication
Their only form of communication in
the Amazon region is by boat. However,
Father Morrissey is trying to raise mon
ey for a radio station, which if why he
i6 now in the United States. Through the
radio, the priests could educate the people
since there are not enough priests to
cover the whole territory. So far he has
raised $1,050 for the $10,000 project.
If each village had a transitor, the
station could become a stronghold for de
mocracy in the north, he said. "If the
southern part of Brazil, where there is
more population and less being done by
the free world, fell to the Communists,
the northern region, if educated in dem
ocratic ideas, could hold out. The illiter
ate people have not had a chance to
know the importance of opposing the
communists. The communists have giv
en them the idea that there is no reason
for them to become educated since the
party will answer all their problems,"
he related.
"The radio station may be a small
step in our combat, but a little is better
than nothing," Father Morrissey said.
"Communism is at our doorstep,
he warned. "All must sacrifice in order
to promote the ideas that we are grate
ful for and want to keep."
Father Morrissey, a graduate of Oma
ha Holy Name, has served as a mission
ary priest in Brazil for eight years.
