A & S Students: VOTE
Students in the Arts and Sciences Col-I-lege
will have the chance to increase their
say in the college's administration and
policy-making Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.
On both these days, an election for
the approval or disapproval of a new Arts
and Sciences Advisory Board Constitution
will be held.
In the past the Arts and Sciences ad
visory board has been very insignificant
and has deserved little attention from
the students in that college. But the new
constitution could enable the board to play
an important role in representing student
opinion and ideas.
Any student who has ever felt that
some Arts and Sciences requirement is
insignificant or that the curriculum should
be changed cannot afford to ignore the
A good turnout in approving the con
stitution will enable an excellent and work
able body to be established within the
college representing the students' wishes
and having some power as an effective
Formerly this advisory board has been
little more than a meeting of the Arts
and Sciences student senators and the
college dean once or twice a year.
The new constitution sets the frame
work for an actual board with definite
duties of making policy recommendations
on matters such as college curriculum
and requirements.
Included in this new framework are
definite provisions stressing a strong con
nection between the board and student
government. Thus propiding the board
with a certain amount of intangible pow
er through the student government.
H o w e v e r, the new constitution pro
vides a board not primarily of student
senators, but of students from different
departments in the college. '
A constitution will not automatically
give the students more say in the col
lege's policy. But the constitution will give
the students a workable group that will
exist and which can be held responsible
for representing the students' wishes.
The Daily Nebraskan encourages ev
ery student in the college to study a copy
of the concise but meaningful constitution
and to vote after Thanksgiving Vacation.
Because of vacation, the Nebraskan
will only publish one paper between to
day's issue and the first morning of the
election. For this reason we cannot over
emphasize now how important it is that
students in the college remember to vote
on the constitution the first Wednesday or
Thursday after Thanksgiving.
Like so many other projects beginn
ing this year, the constitution will be just
one important step toward improving the
"total education" at this University where
students take a serious interest in t h e
school and work for its improvement.

The Young Democrats, contrary to
some opinions, do have a significance for
students at the University.
I ' The Importance of an organization
Z like the Young Democrats lies in the op-
; portunity it supplies for students to learn,
understand and participate in politics.
For only by being exposed to the realm
of political activity will the student rea-
- lize the significance of his role as a vot-
". ing citizen.
t However, this ii only the beginning.
If the Young Democrats want to become
a vibrant organization they must assume
a greater role in campus activities and
affairs. Simply to remain" content and
snug in the sometimes surrealistic atmos
phere of the National Democratic party
is not enough.
They must take a stand on the per
tinent issues facing them as students and
as human beings. Discussion must pre
cipitate action.
The Young Democrats at the Univer
sity must make the decision either to
sink into oblivion or to become an ener
getic and active organization.
The issues are present which demand
action, and I believe, that like the pride
President Kennedy had for his nation the
; pride which the Young Democrats have
for their club and their University will
T result in meaningful action.
The Young Democrats must and will
promote their liberal views and principles
concerning campus, national and interna-
tional issues as extensively as radical
; views of sucb organizations like S.D.S.
... Bob Dylan wrote "the times they are
'tv-changing", a phrase which will resound
with greater importance for the Young
Democrats and the University this year.
By Cathie Shattuck
I would like to take this opportunity
to pass along to all the Young Republi
cans who worked in the campaign t h e
many words of thanks which were ex
pressed to me by the Republicans who
were elected to office Nov. 8.
Hard work does pay off in votes. The
long hours you spent in putting up signs,
knocking on doors, organizing parades,
doing research, serving at coffees, driv
ing candidates around town, making phone
calls, addressing envelopes and recruit
ing people to help in the effort was not
only effective, it was great!
Don't mistake this statement of thanks
as a good-bye though. Our j&b has just
begun. Now that we have all of our peo
ple elected it is necessary that we as
interested Young Republicans continue
our participation in government.
Through the University organization
you will be able to continue to be active
in many ways. The first and perhaps the
most important thing that you can do
here on the state level is to closely follow
the workings of the Nebraska Unicameral.
Although this body is non-partisan
there are many Republicans who are sen
ators and they will be appearing on cam
pus to discuss the problems of state gov
ernment at our meetings.
This is not to say that the glamour
and excitement has ended with the elec
tion. As a matter of fact the "fun" has
just begun. Coming soon will be the In
augural Ball for Gov. Tiemann, the
State Young Republican Convention and
the National Young Republican Conven
tion. Remember also that 1968 is a presi
dential election year and many men who
want to be considered for the Republican
nomination for President will be coming
to Nebraska to get support which can be
translated into delegate strength at the
National Convention.
We won the election handily and
through the leadership of the dynamic
men we elected in Nebraska, it will be
possible to spread the Republican victory
to even more states in the next election.

Our Man Hoppe-
A Liberal View Of Reagaii

"P s s s t!" It was my
friend, Percy Blythe Nett
lerash, the Outraged Liber
al. Only he didn't look very
outraged. He looked furtive.
Even his beard was curling
He sidled in, took a seat
where be could watch the
door, inspected the ashtray
for listening devices, leaned
over and whispered:
"If you've got a road
map of the Sierra, we can
use you in our Ninth of
November Movement."
The Ninth of November?
"It commemorates the
dreadful morning," said Mr.
Nettlerash, wiping the pers
piration from his high brow,
"that we picked up e u r
newspapers to read Ronald
Reagan had been elected
Governor of California. We
are now heading for the
mountains to carry on the
The Liberal struggle for
social justice, commun
al welfare and a democrat
ic society?
"No," he said, lighting a
thinking man's cigarette
with trembling fingers, "the
struggle to stay alive."
Ob, come now, I said.
Surely he wasn't worried
the new Administration
would seek reprisals on its
political enemies now that
it was taking power?
"Did you see the head
lines?" he said. "Reagan's
already working on details
of a Statewide pogrom."
I said the word was "pro
gram." Daily Nebraskan
"Call it what you want,"
he said with a shudder. "We
know what it means. At
any minute, I expect Ober
fuehrer John Wayne to come
striding through the door in
his new SS uniform. He
grabs me by the collar. He
thrusts the glowing tip of
his cigar toward my eyes.
I break! I reveal the mem
bership list of my local
A.D.A. Chapter to him. Call
me. a weakling, if you win,
but I can't stand pain."
Oh, nonsense, I said. Mr.
Reagan would be a decent,
moderate Governor maybe
even a great one. It was all
a question of role playing.
He'd played a charming boy
ish candidate during the
campaign with great suc
cess. And now he'd play a
dignified, incorruptible de
cision maker. After all, If
he could do Andy Hardy,
he can do Judge Hardy.
"I see him more as," said
Mr. Nettlerash gloomily,
"Akim Tamiroff in Ivan
the Terrible."
The trouble with Liberals,
I said testily, was that they
bad no real faith in de
mocracy. Mr. Nettlerash nodded.
"After studying the election
results," he said, "I think
it's outlived its usefulness."
He was just being a sore
loser, I said. After every
election, it seems that the
only people who have faith
in the good judgment of
the people are those who
voted for the winning tick
et. But now was the time
to forget our differences
and all pull together behind
Mr. Reagan. Besides, it was
snowing in the Sierra.
Mr. Nettlerash squared
his thin shoulders. "You're
right," he said. "Tell Mr.
Reagan he can count on me.

showing faith in democracy

he said nervously, "that

the camps."

! Dramatic Overtures !
1 By Sue Westerhoff
Temple Building is hopping again.
What with two main stage productions in perform
ance on Howell stage, four laboratory plays produced last
weekend, two more being produced this Sunday and Mon
day evenings and nine more lab plays being cast this
week, it's hard to find a quiet place in tbe building from
which to meditate on the meaning of life.
But the concentration of an actor is such that even
in the midst of utter chaos he may meditate and what
is he prone to think in these deep moments of delibera
tion? Is it all worth it ?Do all these weeks of rehears),
these endless hours of set building and costuming and
line memorizing really pan out when you perform to an
empty audience?
Of eourse there is an artistic satisfaction (whatever
that elusive term means) in tbe mere act of perform
ance, but tbe tangible satisfaction of an audience's laugh
ter aod applause Is lost in the echo of a small handful
of the faithful few, religiously reacting to tbe efforts of
the actors on stage.
But, you may say, "As You Like It" is selling out
for its performances. Selling out to whom? Hoards of
high school students required to see the performances
for their English classes, that's who.
Our main stage play audiences are composed, to a
great extent, of the people of Lincoln and these unpre
dictable high school students. Lab plays are attended by
family and friends of the director and actors, along with
a smattering of people dragged in off the streets.
One faction of the University population is clearly
missing from our audiences. Can you guess who It is?
Try bard, now think, mediate, concentrate that's It! It's
tbe University student.
He's too preoccupied with "other important things"
to attend the numerous plays that are performed. I can't
convince you to come see these performances by a tirade
of words. The persuasion lies in the performances them
selves. See one and you will return many times. I am
sure of it.
Soaring Balloon Of Idealism
Dear Editor:
It was indeed profoundly touching to read Mr. Paul
Romay's comments in the Campus Opinion column of the
Daily Nebraskan (Nov. 11), but I am afraid his soaring
balloon of idealism requires a little deflation.
I feel that to merely bandy about platitudinous
cliches of the type which abound in his letter is hardly
helpful; at most it is an exercise in futility.
It might perhaps do our souls some good if we were
instead to consider whether this whole game of ideologi
cal allegiances has gone too far. It is precisely ideology
which today keeps the world fragmented and which
blandly channels vast sums of wealth into the upkeep
of arsenals while millions starve.
Mr. Romay of course feels that the existence of de.
mocracy is necessary and goes on to give several re.
quisites for its continued existence. But does this system
truly serve the underdog for whom it is meant to be a
Would it be too Impertinent to suggest that a day
might shortly come when the validity of the existence of
" any "ism" whatsoever might be questionable and per
haps democratism (if the expression may be pardoned)
might go the same way?
For too long has mankind put before itself shining
ideals which it never cared to utilize and then covered
up this discrepancy with hypocrisy; let us therefore ad
dress ourselves to the task of cultivating one "simple"
virtue the love of truth. All else, I hope, will follow from
S. K. Chaturvedi
Uglification Of The Soul
Dear Editor:
Today's student is led to believe that the educators
consider it more important to avoid mistakes than to in
novate. Creativity and symbolic communication are two at
tributes which clearly distinguish man from the beasts
of the field. The close inter-relationship of these factors
is imperative; one can scarcely be discussed intelligent
ly without reference to the other.
It has been estimated that 90 per cent of our school
ing is devoted to training the critical faculties, the anti
thesis of the creative. This tends to drive the student
into non-creative, imitative activity.
An advanced society implementing the "vivarian"
concept would be marked by being concerned with and
encouraging the creative innovator. Our educational sys
tem is producing intellectual giantism and spiritual and
ethical dwarfism, partly due to its two-dimensional orient
ed curriculum.
Could we justifiably say this leads to an uglification
of soul; the growing uglification of our cities being only
. one of its symptoms?
In counter distinction, the "vivarian" concept calls
for a lofty and imaginative application of man's crea
tive ability to incorporate new and inspiring forms of
beauty into the necessary functional designs of our struc
tures and landscapes of our urban environment; into
our very lives.
Let us add creative, beauty-loving innovators to the
urban and suburban planning boards of our nation.
How long neew we wait? Is not man's desire and cap
ability at hand? Let the new breed come forth.

Timp-On-Tlie-Worhr Award?
Dear Editor,
Kosmet Klub has done it at last! I congratulate them
on proving 60 convincingly that they can add to the beau
ty of campus architecture with chalk, print a show pro
gram with a tasteful, sophisticated cover, act as gen
tlemen during the "finale" on stage and draw a nearly
sell-out crowd to see the most hilarious show ever.
I have yet to see so much work put into the biggest
satire on talent that the campus has ever seen. Kos
met Klub should be concerned, however, that someone
of the six thousand might have taken the show as a
serious effort.
But to assuage any lasting worry on their part, I
have yet to talk to more than two or three who mistook
Saturday night's exhibition for a seriously intended "Pro
duction." Also let me congratulate KK on not giving awards
to Traveler Acts. Those who participated in the Travel
er Acts obviously weren't informed that they were to
satirize, rather than perfect, a talented effort and natur
ally were not included in the trophy presentation.
Finally, let me urge that Kosmet Klub be given the
November "Pimp-on-the-World" Award and inform ttffem
that they may have surpassed last month's winner, tha
Phi Kappa Psi satirization of Homecoming Displays.

A Way To Govern Women?
Dear Editor:
Monday night I missed a floor meeting in my dorm.
I was handed the following list of penalties and told to
choose one:
1. Clean bathroom sinks two nights In a week.
2. Wash hall windows and mirrors twice during the
3. Buy treats for the next floor meeting.
4. Copy a page from the dictionary.
5. Mop up shower area once on the weekend and
once during the week.
6. Wash the doors to the bathroom toilets.
7. Clean the maid's closet three times during ona
8. Clean the blinds of any two rooms.
Is this an effective way of governing college women?
