Even the geese will be ri

this weekend as nearly 1,150
Nebraska rooters will flock to
Colorado to cheer the team
toward its sixth straight win.
According to a telephone
poll conducted yesterday by
the Daily Xebraskan, approx
imately 472 sorority women,
443 fraternity men, and 187
residents of the boys and
girls dorms will be leaving
for migration weekend.
It appears from the poll
that about 40 per cent of the
Greeks will spend the next
three days in Colorado. No
accurate figures could be ob
tained for the residence balls.
Surprisingly enough, the
percentage of girls outnum
bers the men. Nearly half of
the girls in sororities, as
compared to only 35 per cent
of the fraternity men are ex

They are visiting the United States for
four months to study major national wom

tribute to education and the community.
When interviewed, Mrs. Nderitu ex
pressed a sincere belief that God would
have a solution to the Kenya independ

to see it getting over, before we know
much more about itl"
"It is a nasty thing to remember and
think about," said Miss John.
Speaking in perfect English, they ex
plained that this is the third language
they each speak. The other two are Kis
wahili and their own tribal tongues.
Easier To Express
They both expressed the wish that
they would be able to speak in their na

Miss John continued.
"Life in the United States is a big
change from what I had thought it would
be like," said Mrs. Nderitu. "I thought
I would find life over here as in the
movies. I expected dry ground and cow

city life because it is more interesting,"
she remarked.
Unfamiliar With Farms
"I didn't know there was anything
like farms in the United States. We of

low maize that was sent to us," said
Mrs. Nderitu.
' Before we left home, we thought
that the scheduled trip of four months
was too long, but since we have been
here we have found that because of the
friendship and cooperation we have met,
we needed much more time, especially
in Lincoln," concluded Mrs. Nderitu.

"We have reached defin
itely and finally the point of
no return, said Dr. Roberto
Esquenazi-Mayo, Cuban -born
professor of romance lan
guages, at a Nebraska
State Education Association
meeting yesterday.
The U.S. has decided it is
time to stop Russian policies
not only in Cuba but in the
Western Hemisphere, he said.
"In my opinion, Kennedy's
program, to stop, search or
sink any boat no matter what
nationality that approaches
Cuban shores, must be com
plied with."
"No one knows what will
happen," he said. "We may
be, in a few hours, involved
in an atomic war. May God
give all of us understanding
so we can live peacefully."
The American foreign pol
icy was not what it should
have been, he said. Cubans
have criticized it, but there
is not time now for accusa
tions or counter accusations.
"Some people argued wheth
er Kennedy's action was a
moral action or not," he said.
His answer to this was that
"It takes a great deal of
moral courage for a great
power to admit that they have
made mistakes in foreign pol
icy. Castro has never shown
any interest in submitting any
of his policies to any referen
dum." "The missiles in Cuba are
a present threat to the U.S.
Kennedy is not only concerned
with the defense of Cuba, but
with the national security of
the U.S., too."
Explaining the Cubans' side
of the situation, Dr. Esquen
azi stressed that anyone who
says Cuba is with Castro is

of Crisis
either a fellow troubler or is
ignorant of the Cuban situa
tion. He explained that Cas
tro has betrayed the Cuban
revolution the same deter
mination that was shown
against Batista is now being
shown against Castro.
"No one knew at the time
of the revolution that Castro,
although he was a rebel rous
er in college, was going to
lead them into communism.
No one would have sup
ported him if they had known.
He had stated, while he was
in Sierra Maestra, that he
wasn't a communist and that
he didn't want to have any
communist infiltration."
"But," continued Dr. Es
quenazi, "something hap
pened to him. Slowly and
quietly communism took over
with his agreement."
Castro knew that the U.S.
was behind him. The revolu
tion was planned in New York
and money to support it
came from New York, New
Orleans and several other
American places, he said.
Batista was at least as bad
as Castro, said Dr. Esquenazi.
The Cubans do not want to
get Batista back, but want to
get something better. If they
had known what Castro was,
they would have destroyed
him, but not the revolution.
The professor stressed that
the U.S. is not against social
or economic reform in Cuba.
Neither are those who are
against Castro, but they are
against the type of Soviet ty
ranny he has imposed."
Two years ago Castro tried
to get rid of the Cuban
leaders of the revolution.
Many were shot because they
were against Communist in
filtration. The Cubans are behind the
U.S. policy and so are the
other Latin American coun
tries, he said. They don't
feel that the U.S. is intrud
ing. "This is not a unilateral
intervention, but is multilat
eral," he continued.
,VI am against unilateral in
tervention in the internal af
fairs of any Latin American
nation, but this is not a con
flict between two internal
parties, but is part of the
Communist plan for world
Reconquer Cuba
"For those who claim that
the U.S. has abused its pow
er, let me point out that the
Cubans all over New York,
Florida, etc. have volunteered
to fight in their homeland
because they want to recon
quer whatever is left in Cuba
after Castro is gone. "They
sing in their national anthem,
'to die for one's country is
to live.' " They believe it, he
The U.S. and Cuba have
made mistakes, he admitted.
The Cubans are paying for
them now and who knows how
much they will have to pay if
Castro is victorious. Many
have paid with their lives.
"I shiver with horror at the
possibility of what may hap
pen when the two boats meet.
I don't know, no one does,
but definitely and finally the
U.S. hag made very clear her
position," he said.
"The Cubans do differ in
many of their opinions, but
they are united in the idea
that their differences will
make no difference if Castro
remains," he concluded.
