Whether or not Christmas vacation should be changed
for the Orange Bowl goers is a number one topic of dis
cussion on campus.
.STUDENT SENATE Wednesday passed a motion urg
ing, that there be no roll taken, and no tests given on Mon
day, January 3, so that those going to the Orange Bowl
will, not be punished by their absence.
Faculty Senate is opposed to such a stipulation. So are
we. The Senate position would probably have the same
effect as dismissing classes completely Our Senators might
just as well have passed a resolution urging that the va
cation be changed.
REALISTICALLY the entire problem involves only a
small minority of the students. A change in vacation would
aid only those who are driving to the bowl games and
If vacation were not to adjourn until Jan. 4 or 5 would
that small minority who drove to the Orange Bowl be
back and present for their classes the following day? Un
doubtedly some would. Others would not be.
If the vacation were changed there would be those
who would object to remaining for an extra half week in
December and they would leave the 17 or 18.
The question is one of values values that the students,
faculty and administrators place in our University.
SOME WOULD SAY: "We're a football school and
it's time we admitted it. Let's change the vacation for the
convenience of those going to the bowl."
Others would note that the state and the University
could gain such good publicity if they were well repre
sented at the bowl game. "Those attending the bowl would
be supporting the University. Why should they be pun
ished?" WE WOULD RESPOND: Those attending the game
should not be pampered. They are members of a Univer
sity community which entails more than supporting their
And the charge that the University is simply a foot
ball school is insulting to the University to the majority
of the students, faculty and administrators and to the
Terry Carpenter has done it again.
One of the least pleasant aspects of Thanksgiving va
cation was Carpenter's printed accusation charging that
a University agricultural economist, Dr. Everett Peter
son, made "wild and unfounded" statements before the
Legislative Council Tax Committee last week. The accu
sation suggested that Peterson's statements were made
as a University pressure for more money.
Could this be the same Senator who last year urged
that University students march on the capitol to show
their dislike for the proposed tuition hike and their sup
port for more tax support for their University?
"As it turns out, Peterson did not appear before the
Legislative Council Tax Committee last week. Carpenter's
charge is unfounded.- ,
It appears the state's party-switching senator has out
maneuvered himself this time. Many of the 15,000 Univer
sity students are more than a little displeased with this
And 15,000 votes could be very costly for Senator Car
penter stiould he attempt a state wide political office in
the next few years.
Today is give-your-blood-for-our-fighting-men day.
The. University Red Cross chapter is a co-sponsor of
the drive. And the University quota is 220 pints. Wednes
day evening approximately 200 students had registered
to give blood. '
We hope that those who did not sign up but would
like to donate a pint to the cause do so. The conference
rooms are a convenient location.
It would be embarrassing if a University of 15,000
students the majority apparently in agreement with
United States policy in Viet Nam could not fulfill a
220 pint quota.

Who was that man who
said that AWS on the Ne
braska campus was the
farce of the year? Appar
ently he was here during
Standards Week; or was he
the one who wouldn't pay
the 60c for two o'clock
hours; or was he the one
who saw the three-date-rule
abbreviated because he was
so special after a very
meaningful coke date.
He probably wasn't any
of the three. J u s t a guy,
not even a very clever guy,
but one who could see

The big thing these days is student freedom. Which
is, and probably always will be, a mirage.
That's why one must give the Students for a Demo
cratic Society a little credit. Although I find it a bit hard
to go along with all this conscientious objectivity (if, for
nothing else, out of consideration to the dead) I must com
pliment their understanding of what I like to call the Ad
It's a cross between a pigeonhole and a loophole.
Now for those of you who are worried that I might
be censured for the preceding paragraph, remember that
there is no longer an Administration at this University. It
got pigeonholed. . t .
The only student freedom that will ever come out of
the Administration mind is a few teasers. These may
give a campus activity the right to publish (can t wait to
read the first edition of the Tassels Manifesto) or create
a new board to consider student participation in the 'de
cision making process."
It probably won't:

residents can be free of three veals a day and lots of
unwanted and unneeded mothering.

all the other junior pigeonholes learn to stand up for what
they believe in.
That's why I agree with Carl Davidson that this place
is sick. We disagree only in that he sees some hope and
Try this sometime. Think up a question to ask some
one over in the big pigeonhole. Make it a tender question,
hard to answer. Then count the steps in the grapevine
(the Administration mind calls them "channels of pro
test") that it requires before you are back where you
started without an answer.
Or try this. Ask an AWS jock how she justifies wom
en's sentences. First she'll get all red and tell you it's
none of your business and to keep out of it because all
the women in the world appreciate the protection hours
Then she'll tell you that nobody but dirty old men want
a liberalization of hours.
She's wrong on both. Women's hours, visiting hours
and especially AWS court are more than an inconvenience
they are. a slap in the face to all college women and

good and those who want to make good, remains couched
