'AN 18 STATE:'
A Chance
Student Council distributed its drinking opinion polls
two days ago, and surprisingly, enough students were fill
ing them out many seriously, some candidly, we hope
A random sampling of Hie polls shows that an over
whelming majority of students both over and under 21
drink heartily and frequently. Although, they feel that
Council is some kind of a Simon LaGree for even thinking
abont attempting a study.
What is important about the poll? The heading asks
for age. The first question is: Do you drink? If the head
ing says 17, 18, 19, or 20, and the first question is answered
yes, then there is a problem. Students are not heeding
the law.
The question asking whether Council should "investi
gate" the drinking problem does not imply that they think
that drinking to excess is a problem. It means (and it
should have been explained further): Do you think that
students are violating the law in excess?
Residents of Nebraska and consequently the papers of
Nebraska are interested in this story, and if students are
serious about trying to get the legislature to switch to an
"18 state," support may be there.

Over vacation, I bred a darling thought in the warm

at the possibilities. Since I attend such a Happy and Gay

No Victory Story
Dear Editor:
I am writing in regard to
yesterday's issue of the pa
per in which there was no
story at all on the 1964
Orange Bowl victory. I
think this is drastically
wrong since Nebraska Uni
versity had not won a ma
jor bowl victory ever.
Of course, we won last
year but remember this
game was a much bigger
deal. And also we had lost
in the Rose Bowl game of
1941 and the Orange Bow!
in 1955. Furthermore we had

good teams then but not the
great team and coaching
staff that we have today.
Even though the game was
one week ago today, re
member everyone does not
get a big town paper or Mi
ami paper. Students always
like to read about what their
University has to say about
their school and team.
For this reason I feel that
it was wrong not to have
had any main story on our
victory in the 1964 Orange
Bowl. So, congratulations to
the 1963 football team.

What does it take to corner
a group of people about a
particular subject? Ade
quate propaganda, emphasis
by its leadership, or must
the subject be inherently
visible to each individual?
Any of these choices might
be a possible answer. It can
be suggested that a combina
tion of the above factors
coupled with the spark of
crisis, would be sufficient
to concern a community
about most problems.
The Student Council is in
the process of deciding if
there is a drinking problem
on campus and whether or
not it warrants further in
vestigation if it exists. Cer
tainly, there is an underly
ing crisis in this area
which concerns not just this
campus but the American
society. However, state law
precludes any effective
action to deal with this
problem in the university
community alone. A further
investigation might be war
ranted if this were not true.
What, as university stu
dents, can we concern our
selves with as being within
our scope of problem solv
ing? The answer to this
question might be that we
are generally flunking our
intellectual and promotional
report cards of conern f;
the University of Nebraska.
Intellectual concern goes
beyond getting good grades
and studying. It includes an
interest in those seven lively
arts. Energies are channeled
into living unit and campus
activities, social life, and
athletics. This is certainly
not to say that these are
not a part of one's univer
sity career; each is a ne
cessary factor. But there is
a lack of concern for scho

Well sir, here we go into 1964, which shows e very sipi of bring
quite a distinguished year. First off, it is the only year sine
1964 which ends with the Figure 4. Of course., when it comes
to Figure 4's, 1964, though distinguished, can hardly compare
with 1444 which, most people agree, had not just one, not just
two, but three Figure 4's! This, I'll wager, is a record that will
stand for at least a thousand years!
1444 was, incidentally, notable for many other things. It
was, for example, the year in which the New York Giants
played the Philadelphia Athletics in the World Series. As w
all know, the New York Giants Jiave since moved to San Fran
cisco and the Philadelphia Athletics to Kansas City. There is
a movement afoot at present to move Chicago to Phoenix
the city, not the baseball team. Plwenix, in turn, would of
course move to Chicago. It is felt that the change would b
broadening for residents of both cities. Many Chicago folks,
fv example, have never seen an iguana. Many Phoenix folks,
on the other hand, have never seen a frost! lite.
There are, of course, certain difficulties connected with
municipal shift of this size. For instance, to move Chicugo)
you also have to move Lake Michigan. This, in itself, present
no great problem, wliat with modern scientific advances like
electronics and the French cuff. But if you will look at your
map, you will find Lake Michigan is attached to all the other
Great Lakes, which in turn are attached to the St. Lawrem
Seaway, which in turn is attached to the Atlantic Ocean. You
start dragging Lake Michigan to Phoenix and, willy-nilly, you'll
Vie dragging all that other stuff too. This would make our
British allies terribly cross, and I can't say as I blame them.
Put yourself in their place. What if, for example, you were a
British costermoiiger who had leen saving and scrimping all
year for a summer holiday at Brighton B!ch, and then when
you got to Brighton Beach there wasn't any ocean? There you'd
be with your inner tube and anorkel and nothing to do all day
but dance the Lambeth Walk. This, you must agree, would not
tielp make you NATO-minded !
1 appeal most earnestly to the residents of Chicago and
Phoenix to reconsider. 1 know it' no bowl of cherries going
through life without ever seeing an iguana or a frostbite, but
I ask you Chicagoans, Phoenicians is it too big a price to
pay for preserving the unity of the free world?
1 feel sure that if you search your hearte, you will make tha
right decision, for all of us whether we live in frog&ittea
Chicago, iguana-infested Phoenix, or narrow-lapelled New
llaveu are first and foremost Americans!
But I digress. We were speaking of 1964, our new year. And
new it is! There is, for one thing, new pleasure in MarllKtra
Cigarettes. How, you ask, can there lie new pleasure in
Marlboros when that fine flavorful blend of tobaccos, that clean
efficient Selectrate filter, have not been altered? The answer is
simple: each time you light a Marlboro, it is like the first time.
The flavor is such that age cannot wither nor custom stale.
Marlboro never palls, never jades, never dwindles into dull
routine. Each puff, each cigarette, each pack, eh carton,
makes you glad all over again that you are a Marlboro smoker!
Therefore, Marlloro in hand, let us march confidently into
1964. May good fortune attend our ventures! May serenity
reign! May Chicago and Phoenix soon recover from their dis
appointment and join our bright cavalcade into a brave to
morrow 1 imm MSI StlUlRMS)

Contrary to Dr. Freeman
B. Decker's o p 1 n I o n, the
University should have as
its primary goal to stimu
late the student to think,
examine his own life, consider,-
and become involved
with society and its prob
lems in order to become a
useful citizen. And then
secondly, it should provide
the necessary occupational
education to make it possi
ble for each student to be
come an employed rather
than an unemployed mem
ber of society.
The University communi
ty is composed of the facul
ty, ministration and stu
dent body. If a university is
to stimulate studentsto
learn, these three groups
must not just tolerate each
other, but must establish
close communication and
working relationships espe
cially at the undergraduate
level. It Is generally accept
ed that faculty student
working communication Is
nearly non-existent.
Few professors take time
to contribute to the Daily
Nebraskan or few students
desire after class seminar
discussions. Student activi
ties generally are certainly
not geared to this goal. The
faculty (and administration)
is as guilty of this climate of
non-engagement as is the
student body.
This is not to say that
there are not some few no
table exceptions such as the
history club and Dr.
Knapp's recent newspaper
article. Possibly the Student
Council could consider pro
moting a few more excep
tions. with
