The Daily Nebroskan
Again And Again
Yesterday came the announcement from the Athletic
Department that football tickets have been upped $1 per
game for public reserved tickets because of demand for
stadium seats and increased operating expenses. Some
times, when the demand goes up, presuming this is the
case here, the price goes down.
There is, however, no change in the price of student
tickets, except that there is one less home game. It is
also funny that the faculty should have to pay more than
the students, $2.50 more to be exact Student ticket prices
were upped $3 for this past season.
The whole thing is tiresome. There is no need for
students or faculty to pay that much, no matter if the
athletic department here does not get the financial as
sistance it does at other schools.
Whether the student is affected directly in this case,
the trend has started and the University is probably
safe to expect other ticket boosts in the future. NU is
now again in big-time football and evidently its fans are
the ones to pay . . . and pay. If the fans are the only
Athletic Department source of revenue, then fans are
paving for tutoring sessions, scholarships to football play
ers, some of whom play and some of whom do not. They
are also paying for the athletic sweatshirts that so many
students wear. They are also paying for keeping athletic
department material clean and in working condition. All
in all, the fans are paying for too much they should not
have too.
Examples usually cited are Big Ten schools. Some of
them have what is called an "activity ticket." If the Uni
versity would sell $15 activity tickets to each student de
siring one and include all extracurricular activities, as
is done elsewhere, it would get back:
greater attendance at extracurricular activities, in
cluding concerts, plays, lectures, etc.
a boost for minor sports, which they so desperately
need and by all rights deserve.
a greater financial return for the Athletic Depart
ment in the long run because the extra $5 could possibly
be more income than would be derived from present stu
dent ticket sales other than football.
a probable boost in student enthusiasm for this
If the Athletic Department should do this and the
results were as listed above, especially the last point it
would be a bigger favor for the University of Nebraska
than winning a bowl game every year.

Editorial Erred About Resignations
The statement ir. yesterday's editorial that four mem
bers of the Nebraska" Youth for Goldwater Club's execu
tive council have resigned was incorrect.
None of the local group's executives have resigned.
Three members of the state Goldwater organization's
executive council have resigned their posts. ... , .
East-West And Surfin' Music
East-West and Music. The following are exerpts from
El Mustang, the newspaper of California State Polytech
nic College, written after some daring one criticized
"surfin" music:
"Surfing music is trash.
"So stated t large poster over the cafeteria entrance
last weekend. If surfing music is trash, it if California
trash. We made it here the West Coast
"Most of us have been consumers of the top 40 radio
music format that began when television took over from
radio . . . music that has been aimed at an ever-decreasing
age bracket
"A characteristic of almost all American popular mu
sic has been its origin in the East, and this has re
mained true for the top 40 too.
"Surfing music is the first popular music to break
this eastern tradition of leadership. It came out of Los
Angeles and its roots have remained there.
"Whether surfing music is trash or not, it is ours.
It is significant in that it is an announcement of the
West's rise in the trend leadership of the nation.
"The East may drown in its waiL"
(Editor's Note: So El Mustang claims fame for the
West because of surfing music. And the East must drown
in its wail. No matter how trivial the matter, they al
ways leave the middle right in the middle! Maybe the
middle could start a trend in good music and let them
both drown in their naivety.)

Dear Editor:
As one of the University
freshmen facing final ex
aminations for the first
time, I would like to call
attention to two students
who see fit to do a service
of mercy and love to all
freshmen students who will
also be going through final
exams. Of course mercy
and love are commercial
ized: let us say at the rate
of $2.95 a head.
My father is a hard work
ing old man filled with the
milk of human kindness
common tomost laborers.
He has a bent back; ruined
his health to the tune of two
heart attacks, a double
hernia, and various other
minor injuries; gone with
out new clothes, a new car
(since 1945 , and mail order
dancing lessons from the
Arthur Murray Studios in
order to clothe, and feed
his family, keep the wolf
from the door, and give us
things we could not have
had had he not loved us as
much as he has.
He has seen to it that my
sister and I have gotten an
education and some training
in how to live in this man's
world. He has lived through
two wars and a depression.
There is very little that
turns his old stomach, al
though lately it has been
doing calisthenics, isomet
rics, and headstands. Not
too long ago, however, he
received through the mail
a ridiculous letter from two
would be good Samaritans
out for a buck at the ex
pense of our emotional and
sometimes guiliuie parents.
This letter was so official
looking and dripping with
yet uncured honey that my
presuinbaly ignorant o 1 d
father did not quite fall for
the proposition.
I am enclosing this piece
of garbage that insinuates
that freshman college stu
dents and their parents
don't know he value of
$2.95. It also reeks with the
false conclusion that fresh
man college students are
cringing, weak creatures
looking for Mommy and
Daddy" to come swooping
down in spirit form to offer
their great big shoulders
for us to cry on. Jay and
Jeff Pokorny also sign the
name of their college (Col
lege of Business Adminis
tion) after their own names '
to add to the validity of
their document
If my family would send
me $2.95 all for my very
own during finals I could
get mildly and maybe even
wildly plastered. Isn't this
a lot better way of reliev
ing tension and anxiety than
with a "Booster Fruit
Basket," Miami oranges,
apples, tangerines, high en
ergy candy and gum ! ?

and ''Barttoat Boy With Ckr'k.")
College is fun and frolic and fulfillment xcept for no
melancholy omission: we don't pet to enjoy Mora's home
cooking. (In my own underfrrisduate days, curiously enough, I
did not undergo this deprivation: my mother, m noted croex
country runner, was never home long enough to cook a meal
until Iter legs gave out bet Arbor Day.)
But mot of us-- arrive at college with fond gastric memories of
MuinV nourishing delicacies, and we are inclined now and then
to heave great racking sighs as we contemplate the tem
tallies in the campus cafeteria. Take, for an extreme example,
the ca.e of Firif-t'-r Sigafoos.
Fiti-Vr, a freshman at one of our great Laf-tern universities
( h-egon t.'tte) came to college accustomed to home cooking of
a kind and quantity enjoyed by very few. Until entering
roll'-ge, Kinter liad lived all his life in Europe, where his father
wa an eminent fugitive from justice. Finster's mother,
natural born cook, wa mirtresf! of the haute! cuisine of a dozea
countries, and FlnMer grew up living and eating in the Con-tin'-rital

greatst of all French bakers, Jean-Claude Brioche (1C34-1921).
M. Brioche, a we all know, alo invented eroifijutntK, French

who invented Danish Jjaxtry).
But I digrwi. Finst;r, I nay, brcakiaxted hglitly at ten m.ra.
At eleven a.m. hi Mom brought him hi elevenae. At twelvo

firt a clear broth ; then a fish course (porgy and !.); then aa
omelette; then the Biain courne cither a saddle of lamb, an eve

finally a lemon nouflli;.
At tliree pjn. Mom i;rved I'inster low tea, at five p.m. high
tea, and at ten p.m. dinner-firtit a bowl of petite marmite (uho
trapjMd the marniites rmM); then a fwh couwe (wounded
trout); then an omelette of turtle eggs; then the main couwe
either duck with orange or a banin of farina; then a salad of
unlKirn chicory; and finally a caramel mouwie.
And tltcn i Fuixtcr went off to college, which remind me of
Marlboro Cigaretten. (Actually it doera't remind me of Marl
boro Cigarette- at all, but the maker of Marlboro pay me to
write thai column and they are inclined to get aurly if I fail to
mention tJieir product. Mind you, I don't objsct to inentioiiiii
their product-no ah, not one bit. Marlboro'- flavor m flavor
ful, the filter filters, the soft pack k aoft, the Flip-Top box flipa,
and the tattoo n optional. Marlboro, are available wherever
dgarettea are told in all fifty atates of the Union. Next tin
you re in the Uis.A., try a pack.)
But I digrm. We were speaking of Finater Bigafooi who went
from Continental dining to dormitory feeding. So whenever
you feel sorry for yourself, think of Fiwtter, for it always lift,
tin- heart to know somebody is worse off tlian you are.
