New Possibilities
Students, students everywhere and not a place to drive.
Persons driving down 14th Street are met with a de
luge of students crossing the street, completely ignoring
lights in an attempt to cross the bottle neck and get
to class on time.
The University Regents voted Tuesday to urge the
city of Lincoln to ciose 14th Street.
This of course is going to mean rerouting some traf
fic, but may also mean saving a few lives.
Several close calls have occurred on the corner of
14th and R. Last year several people were injured, luck
ily not seriously. This year there have been fewer acci
dents, possibly because drivers have now become educat
ed to look out for the pedestrians.
But this does not lessen the possibility of an out-of-town
driver, or possibly of an irate driver, racing
through the intersection and knocking off some innocent
Several proposals have been made in the past, both
officially and unofficially. They include a viaduct for ve
hicles, a viaduct for pedestrians, a new traffic light that
would lessen the complicated corner. Closing off the
street in front of Love Library lessened the complication
some but still left a dangerous intersection.
The least complicated and most effective answer
seems to be closing the street altogether. There will still
need to be accesses to the parking lots in that area but
through traffic will be eliminated.
The closing might also make way for a grassed-in
section or perhaps Dean Martin's skating rink.
It will make for a more beautiful campus.

From time to time, we
must think "unthinkable
thoughts." In that context,
I offer excerpts from an
article by Walter Cronkite.
It deals with the role of
the Fraternity System,
which is much in question
"I am not entirely a con
formist in the popular cur
rent view that the empha
sis Is fraternity life must be
focused on individual and
group betterment. I don't
happen to believe that, to
justify its existence, a so
cial fraternity n e e d s to
cloak itself in petticoats of
From whence came the
idea that a social fraternity
must combine the scholarly
and service functions of Ro
tary, Kiwanis, Phi Beta
Kappa, Sigma Delta Chi,
the Student Union and the
Newman Club? In what con
text must we believe today
that there is no room in the
undergraduate's life for
purely social championship
with his fellow students?
Certainly there is need
today for a new devotion,
a rededication to the pur
suit of learning, that this
nation may continue its de
served leadership and that
we may be better prepared
to meet the increasingly se
rious threat from alien
ideologies. But this great
task need not be unleavened

o Howell Theatre 12th
by Allen Gerlach
Secretary McNamara has
publically warned that, no
matter who strikes first, a
60-minute nuclear exchange
between Russia and Ameri
ca would annihilate over
half the population of each
country. Former Chairman
Khrushchev has stated that
the survivors would envy
the dead. With such a ca
tastrophe looming on t h e
horizon, it is time for all
responsible Americans to
ask "What's Left?"
Nuclear weapons have
made war as an instru
ment of national policy a
totally self-defeating one.
The time for simply talk
ing about peace has passed
in a world in which there
is potentially a 10-or20-ton
bomb hovering over the
head of every , man, woman
and child on the face of
this earth. The best hope
for a world without war
lies in the achievement of
general and complete dis
armament with adequate
Inspection and control, and
under a greatly strength
ened United Nations to pro
vide peaceful methods for
the solution of conflicts and
the promotion of world
change and development.
But neither disarmament
by stages nor the attain
ment of a true peace can
be achieved without facing
the problems and conflicts
in world trouble spots to
day. Those problems should
be faced simultaneously
with those involving weap
ons of mass destruction.

nedy, in his address to the
United Nations in Septem
ber, 1961, challenged the
U.S.S.R. to a "peace race."
While we disagree with the
Communist nations in manv
ways, we also have com
mon interests in avoiding
nuclear war. ending radio
active fallout, reducing
money spent on arms which
is needed elsewhere, and in
ending the suicidal arms
race. Upon these common
interests world security can
be based. The signing of the
limited nuclear test ban
treaty of 1963 is an indica
tion that the Soviets too
want to survive.
. Now, with the continuing
Soviet-American detente,
the time is ripe for some
bold steps in the "peace
race." Russia may or may
not accept the challenge,
but we will never know if
we do not try, vigorously
and repeatedly. We must,
as Senator Fulbright has
suggested, "think unthink
able thoughts."
America can take world
leadership by setting bold
new policies that show the
way to a peaceful world.
American initiatives to slow
the arms race as well as
new approaches to political
settlements in tension areas,
are two broad areas in
which new American poli
cies are needed. Since
wars begin in the minds of
men, it is in the minds of
men that the defenses of
peace must be constructed.
These defenses will be dis
cussed in later articles.
