An Able Administrator
'Amki the University's problems with
registration and budget problems stands
a slightly-built, balding man, who speaks
quietly, yet authoritatively.
H is the University's registrar, Dr.
He is a student's administrator,
because his work as an administrator
is done with the students' welfare up
permost in his mind.
Dr. Hoover is also a man who often
finds his hands tied. His enrollment pro
jections since 1957 on have been fantas
tically accurate most of the time under
two per cent of error and yet his enroll
ment estimates, when sent to the Nebras
ka Legislature, have been undercut.
(Which is one reason why the University
finds itself in its present financial bind.)
Dr: Hoover has also brought to the
University one of the most progressive
systems of registration to be found.
Again, due to factors which Dr. Hoover
cannot control, students were caught in
the registration bind last winter.
One of the Registrar's goals is to
eliminate as many registration ' lines
as possible for the students. And so,
another facilitating process was added
to pre-registration last semester stu
dents enrolled for classes without see
ing a class schedule which resulted
in time conflicts and a large number
of students going through drop and
(And then there were the students
who did not return their registration
sheets byihe deadline which Dr. Hoov
er could in no way control and had to go
through late registration.)
The idea of registering without a
class schedule is a good one. It allows the
college deans to see what will be the
probable number of students desiring
But when Dr. Hoover gave the
deans the number requesting such-and-such
course often the answer
came back from the deans "Not
enough money, not enough instruc
tors to open the required number of
And so the Registrar again was
And yet Dr. Hoover came through,
with his staf, for many of the students
who were also caught. They worked long
hours, even personally pulled cards for
some students, asked instructors for
permission to let "just one more in" a
full class, and notified students when a
drop came through for a class they need
ed. Dr. Hoover is uncanny in the way
he forsees the education and registra
tion processes of the future. He at
tacks the registration process as a
scientist would arriving at theories,
testing them, discarding them if they
He is a student's administrator, a
man whose job of "administering" is with
students in mind, and not necessarily col
leagues in administration.
Dr. Hoover, we commend you for
the job you are doing daily for stu
dents. The University needs more ad
ministrators like you who care about
students who grow ahead of the University.

And the intellectual at
mosphere of the University
was established and soon
the school was known for
its Midwest beatniks.
The demonstrations con
tinued the public were
outraged and many of the
students grew further and
further from society in their
own -little misfit worlds.

ministers you brought us
an intellectual atmosphere.
Thank you. Now let's make
this school different.
There is no r e a s o n why
the only peopl who think
have to think out of society,
have to be stared at, can't
belong to a fraternity, have

threat to "every University
student who likes or at least
wants to learn to think.
The demonstration 'did
nothing it only accom
plished two things.
First it displayed the ig
norance of the common Lin
coln citizen who could make
no comment but, "They
must all be Communists."
Second it represented the
University and the Univer
sity's intelligent and think
ing students who crave
for this atmosphere inside
of their society poorly.
The teach-in following the
demonstration was excel

which included many peo
ple who know little about
South Africa was a disgrace
to the school.

dressed misfits and little
girls who had nothing bet
ter to do. They made the
whole group look silly, in
cluding the intelligent and
responsible core of the dem
onstration who do have
s t r o n g and good feelings
about South Africa.
The University students
who were really concerned
about the problem could
have done much better by
publicizing their teach-in
well and to have forgotten
about an immature, silly
march to Lincoln busi
nesses. A threat to every respon
sible University student
that's all the march was.
I want this school to think,
I want teach-ins and I want
discussions every week on
world and moral problems,
but I do not want this think
ing represented by a bunch
of misfits carrying signs
around 0 Street and out
raging the common L i n -colnites
who don't under
stand. There many people in the
march I respect greatly
but that's because they usu
ally work for thinking in
side of society, not outside.
You who pride yourself
even a little with a mind
or ideas don't sit back
and criticize the demonstra
tion. But next time organize
your own teach-in. If you
can organize dances and
carnivals you can organ
Marchers, do you want
publicity or do you actually
want people at this school
to think? Please don't mess
up the intellectual atmos

give it a stigma before it
really even gets going:

Do these sound like peo
ple without goals, Mr.
If our facts and political
analyses 'are' wrong, Mr.
Hungerford, then we will
soon be corrected. And we
will welcome that kind of
criticism. But if we are
right, then you and many
others in this country face
a crisis of conscience.
Will you join us in form
ing a movement to build
that true America consis
tent with those American
values we all hold? Or wiil
you continue to be a shin
ing apologist for a corpo
rate state with policies of
ten no more sophisticated
than rape? For it has come
to that, my friend.
You see, Mr. Hungerford,
there are two kinds of pa
triotism. One kind, as
once said, is the last ref
uge of the scoundrel, the
kind that says, "My coun
try, right or wrong." In ad
dition to being the last ref
uge of the scoundrel, it is
the first refuge of totali
tarianism and moral irre
sponsibility. After the hor
ror of Nazi Germany, I
think we have seen enough
of this kind of patriotism.
The second kind of pa
triotism is quite different.
It is also quite difficult to
live up to. Because, you see,
it demands that we think. It
demands that we under
stand what the values of the
country, not the present ad
ministration, are. And it de
mands that we analyze
whether the present admin
istration is honestly and
consistently carrying out
And if we find that the
administration is not carry
ing out those values, then,
Mr, Hungerford, this kind
of patriotism demands that
we must struggle to change
the course of the adminis
tration. And that is no easy
or popular task.
Which kind of patriot are
you, Mr. Hungerford: Your
article suggests that you
are the first kind. And. that

Viet Nam Policy Protested
I protest being called "non-American because I hap
pen to disagree with a policy of the United States govern,
ment. Steve Hungerford, in his column entitled "McFar
land Outdated", stated that "protest groups" such as
SDS and SNCC are "people without goals" who have
. never "supported anything American" and are against
anything that is pro-American simply because it is pro
American. This is irresponsible editorializing. Obviously these
are groups who do have boals goals that are much more
pro-American than a good many other groups on campus.
I am not a member of either of these groups although I
am very much in sympathy witih them. It is precisely
because we love America and "the American way" that
we are led to protest some of the actions of our govern
ment. America is a land of freedom and yet over ten per
cent of our people are not free because of the color of
their skin. They cannot live where they wish because we
refuse to sell or rent to them, because we refuse to loan
them money to purchase a house as we do others, because
we refuse to accept them as neighbors. They are not
free because they cannot get a job equal to their qualifi
cations and education, because they cannot get a promo
tion if they are lucky enough to get a job.
(The unemployment rate of Negroes in Lincoln is ovor
twice that of the average of the city, 6.7 as compared to
3.1; the family income per median family is $1800.00
lower for the Negro family than it is for the average Lin
This is un-American. I protest, and I would be willing
to march in the streets of Mississippi or of Lincoln to heb
white America stop this perversion of "the American
way", the way of freedom and democracy.
America stands for peace, for international world or
der, for the freedom of a people to determine their own
destiny. Yet in Vietnam we shout peace but pursue war
on an ever-increasing scale. We week international accord
yet deliberately defy the international community by uni
lateral action. We desire the freedom of the people cf
Vietnam yet we support one of the most oppressive, die
tatorial regimes in the world, equally as undemocratic as
the government of North Vietnam.
I protest our policy and our war in Vietnam precisely
because it is a perversion of what America stands for.
Therefore, I urge that we turn back to true "American
ism" through the seeking of peace through such steps as
1. the stopping of the escalating of the war;
2. the permanent halting of bombing of North Vietnam
3. the issuing of a non-obscure statement that we rec
ognize the Viet Cong as a legitimate party in the dispute
and are willing to negotiate with them directly, not as
pawns of North Vietnam but as an equal, and
4. that we begin to move toward the development of
a coalition government that will include the Viet Cong
as well as the government of South Vietnam and other
factions in South Vietnam.
Militarism and the policy of "the big stick", the role
of world policeman, and the absolutizing of the American
government into a little" tin god that can do no wrong are
not "the American way". The seeking of peace, being a
responsible member of the family of nations and the will
ingness to admit mistakes and to change policy are a part
of true Americanism.

'Hungerford Should Resign'
I have just finished reading an article in Thursday's
Daily Nebraskan entitled "McFarland Outdated (He
Loves His Country." I suggest that its author Steve
Hungerford, managing editor of the Daily Nebraskan, re
sign his post due to his intellectual incompetence, chauvin
ism, and blindness.
Many people will think that what I have said political
ly sounds mighty anti-American. To those people lean
reply: "Don't blame me for that." Rather, blame those
in power in this county that are daily mocking my Ameri
can values and breaking my American heart.
Mr. Hungerford is too inept to make a very simple
distinction that any thinking person is careful to make,
And that is a distinction between the present administra
tion in this country and the values of the country itself.
Mr. Hungerford says ". . . SDA, SNCC and other un
washed groups are merely people without goals." I
might point out that three of us died in Mississippi and
hundreds more of us face death daily in that brutal
Concerning Viet Nam, many of us have volunteered
to go anywhere in that tortured land that the Marines
will go, and some places they will not. But with one dif
ference. We will go unarmed to build for democracy
rather than burn a Siagon bandit, General Ky, whose
only hero is Hitler.
