MRS. ILZEL Brannon Smith, a Mis
sissippi newspaper editor, told a Univer
sity audience Saturday night that pres
sure was once directed against only the
Negro supporters of integration because
Mississippi's Citizens Councils never
dreamed that some white Mississippians
didn't go along with the Councils' purpose.
This is a purpose of instilling a fear in
the Negroes' hearts in order to keep
them in their places.
While talking with Mrs. Smith fol
lowing her speech. Daily Nebraskan staff
members learned of the problems which
occur in the Southern states which are
fighting integration. Many of the practices
and procedures of southern groups seem
to be un-American . . . many border on
the fringes of mob rule, dictatorships, and
anti-Constitution movements. We sympa
thized with her because of the many pres
sures exerted upon her as a result of her
crusading, pro-integration stand.
DURING THE discussion, each of us
mentioned many times, "How fortunate
we are to be in an area where no prob
lems exist" But, when analyzing our
area more thoroughly, we are able to
see that racial equality problems do exist
in Nebraska, in Lincoln, at the downtown
cafe or hotel.
During the last session of the Nebras
ka State Legislature, LB120 was referred
to the Committee on Labor and Public
Welfare. The intent of Lfa?20 was to
amend a section of the Nebraska Stat
utes to read as follows:
"ALL PERSONS within this state
shall be entitled to a full and equal en
joyment of the accommodations, advan
tages, facilities and privileges of inns,
restaurants, motels, trailer courts, tav
erns, public conveyances, barber shops,
theaters and other places of amusement,
subject only to the conditions and limita
tions established by law and applicable
alike to every person.'"
The bin also made a provision in the
penalty section of more severe penalties
for those who denied to any person the
fun enjoyment of any of the accommoda
tions, advantages, facilities, or privileges
enumerated in the section.
JACK ROMANS, at that time a state
senator and chairman of the committee,
"Surely the intent of the legislators
back in the 1880' s was that an citizens of
the state should be able to enter and be
served at any public licensed place. This
question has even had international re-
Can We Say
THE END is near ... or so it seems.
Val Peterson's motion to appoint a
committee t weigh the gfaaPfinges made
by Ray Simmons against the Daily Ne
braskan failed to receive a second in the
Board of Regents meeting yesterday.
PERHAPS THE fact that the Regents
did not feel that an investigation is neces
sary win indicate to Nebraska citizens
that their elected representatives have
faith in the ability of selected staff
members to publish their newspaper in
a responsible manner.
Perhaps the Regents' action shows
that the University of Nebraska students
weren't being continuaDy subjected to
liberally-slanted material.
PERHAPS THEIR action shows that
a newspaper should not have to go to
trial to defend its editorial policies and

foreign students from Africa were denied

law more enforceable and more up-to-date

WE AGREE with Mr. Romans' state
ment of purpose.
However, the members of his com
mittee did not, as LB120 was indefinitely
postponed by the committee.
DURING THE public hearing on the
bill, there was no spoken opposition to
the- biU. On the other hand, eleven in
dividuals spoke in favor of the biU.
One of the speakers read an affidavit
concerning a colored man attempting to
enter a tavern with his wife but was
turned down for no particular reason al

inal record of anv kind.
ed that his organization had conducted a
survey in 1958 and contacted about sixty
restaurants and about twenty did not
serve negroes.
These are examples of pro-segregation
tendencies in Nebraska. If we would
contact many of our University students,
we would discover that many of our for
eign and American students have trouble
finding living accommodations in Lincoln.
We would find that many of our students
have bean refused service in local eating
establishments. We would find that, even
though we pretend no racial problems
exist in our part of the country, there is
strong evidence to refute this belief.
HOWEVER, OTHER state senators
share our support of a biU to extend ra
cial equality rights. During the present
legislative session, LB364 was introduced
and again referred to the Committee on
Labor and Public Welfare. The biU pro

included in LB120 before it was killed in
This bill win be open to a public hear
ing this afternoon at 2:00.
PERHAPS, DURING this session, the
committee members win choose a differ
ent course. Maybe, in time, the Nebraska
Statutes wfll include provisions for total
equality for an Nebraska citizens.
We, as interested students of democ
racy, could do a great deal for the pas
sage of this biU, and our first contribu
tion could be to aid in the passage of
the bill out of the committee so that a
final affirmative vote would be more pos
sible. WE, AS Nebraska citizens, have the
opportunity to speak for LB364 this after

present a question of freedom of speech
or press, but that he felt that the Re
gents, being sensitive to this criticism,
must try to do something about it He
added that if the charge is valid, some
thing should be done about it If not, an
apology is in order.
IN ANSWER to this statement, we
say that we don't feel that the charge
is valid. However, if it were, we would
the first to admit the validity of the
evidence, as it would be in front of us in
black and white.
As for an apology . . . what's been
said has been said. We haven't spent too
much time defending ourselves, as the
charges weren't of the type which merit

THE ONLY form of apology we would
welcome . - .
Sorry, it won't happen again.

that the whole scheme,
as far as college circles
were concerned, was only
an antithesis to several
recent projects, success-,
ful and unsuccessful, led
by university animals, to
unclothe people.
An this, of course, is
not to suppose that the
