,. 1 i- J Page 2 EDITORIAL Thursday, October 4, 196 J NEBRASKA ... Discrimination Northern Style) . James Meredith, a 29 year old Negro, until recently refused admission to the University of Mississippi, presents a unique situation to the University of Ne braska. The Governor of Mississippi used his power to thwart directly the power of the federal government And once again the South has realized that it lost the Civil War and the fight for states' rights. However, ia the North, we continnally point aa accusing finger at "those prej udiced Southerners." But is it a hypo critical finger? Many at the University of Nebraska think it is. An assistant professor of history feels, "It is hard to say that equality and justice exist at the University and in the state of Nebraska. We cannot say that students are not discriminated against because of their background," he expounded. B the federal government enforces Integration la the Sosta, why doesn't it enforce it aere?" he questioned. He also stated, "We are indeed hypo crits if we give charity only to "Thunder" Thornton and Willie Ross." A University professor in the political science department feels, "Due to the ex tremely small number of colored stu dents on this campus, their situation is unusually aggravated. I do not feel the colored student is so much discriminat ed against as he is discriminated for," commented the professor. "The fact still remains, however, dis erimiaatioa does occar en this campas," be said. Continuing, be explained, "Not so much the Southern type of discrimination, but rather our own unique Northern prej udice." "The white students on this campus make it extremely difficult for the col ored student to adjust," he said. "It seems a silent wall exists between white and colored students a waD which neither will cross," the professor said. These are very interesting points and deserve some serious reflection. C a 1 d these be a valid criticism? Have these points forbidden ground in daring to ques tion the University and its students? Possibly. The position of the Administration is more restrained, however. Speaking to Sigma Xu fraternity Monday night, Dean Hallgren expressed a hope "that as we have no serious prejudice problem at the University, nothing like what has hap pened at Mississippi is expected at Ne braska." University students, however, seem to agree with the two professors. A - sophomore, who is a Greek, feels, "There is some question as to the exact status of the colored students on this campus." Continuing, he pointed out, "It is evident that certain organizations do not give equal treatment to the colored student." A senior ia Arts and Sciences had this to say: "The colored student is cer tainly discriminated against ia neaiiy aO phases of social life at the University." "When was the last time you saw a colored student at an activity meeting? At Kings? At a bouseparty?" the student queried. This senior also felt that the colored student is handicapped even when dating. "Just who do they date and just where could they go a show?" said this fel low. Where do the University and its stu dents stand on discrimination? Is it for bidden land that shouldn't be discussed? Shouldn't we "Look first to our own bouse" before we point at others? A CASE Collegiate Press Freedom Have yoo ever bad one of those days when just nothing has gone right? The editor of the Colorado Daily, of ficial newspaper of the University of Col orado (Boulder), is having just one of those days except his has lasted some two weeks now and promises to contimae even larger. It seems that be wrote aa editorial which angered a candidate for regent, a number of stadeats, the aabiicatioas board aad administration. It was eriilled "How Yoo Play" and concerned the then upcoming Colorado football season.

Si-Loud Pl-r.tak notes by bob aye It is time that we as students pay due respect to one of the more ven erable and virtuous or ganizations on campus. Panhellenic Council, we love you. Guardian of our "sorority girls and their unquestionable dig nity and character, the keeper of the keys, and the conscience of all that is righteous and good, we salute you. Without a reasonable doubt, the sororities and their members an this campus represent the epi tome of t ell-mannered, gracious, and terribly feminine females. This select groop of women antst remaia for ever aaparaQelled ia the art of peariag tea, the charming graces which those who "have made it" find indispensable, and the sabtle abilities which enable them to rip someone apart politely. I must stop lor a mo ment, however, to give credit to those girls who Lave not fallen victim to the illusion of "sorority and the consequent group egoism or as you would tiie Egregious Complex. These lew girls, so to speak, are along for the ride. This trait, ahhoagh con demned by aaaay, I Gad ttnite laadahfe. The abil ity of aa indhidnal to find and taaintan his Identity In the face of great public pressures and the sagacity to keep and assert ladividaaury, rather thaa sarcamb to the gtr and comjwl sioa of faneifnl Ideals and mesaagtess opmioas, is very asacb to be eom iseaded. In giving PasheQeeuc it's due, we should keep in mind that it is a prod oct, rather than the es sence, of the sorority sys tem. It is maintained, en couraged, and perpet uated by the very girls whose dignity it has tak en upon itself to main tain. I wonder, however, jnet why PaaheDenie has to worry a boot the image of the Greek womea. Cer tainly the integrity, dig airy aad honor of these girls is above the ialis of defense.
