1971 Summer Reading Course Students
Paul N. McCloskey, Jr., is a
44 year old, two term
Republican Congressman from
California, and a Korean War
Veteran, holding a Navy Cross
and Silver Star. He is
challenging President Nixon for
the GOP nomination on the
issue of the Vietnam war.
While in Washington this
summer, I contacted Mr.
McCloskey's office and put
several questions to them
about his campaign in
Nebraska and specifically at
the University of Nebraska.
McCloskey himself was not
there at the time, and answers
to my questions were provided
by his press secretary, George
I asked if McCloskey has
any plans to campaign in
Nebraska. The answer: "At
present the Congressman has
no plans to campaign in
Nebraska although he did say,
when he announced his
intention to enter the New
Hampshire and California
primaries that he would
campaign in 'every state where
we can raise enough volunteer
support and money to mount a
credible campaign.' So
Nebraska is not ruled out, but
a definite decision will not be
made in the immediate
In short, McCloskey has
written-Nebraska off and will
not waste the little money that
he has here, coming only if the
tab is picked up on the local
Next I asked if McCloskey
will have his name removed
from the Nebraska GOP
primary ballot. According to
Murphy, "the Congressman has
no plans to ask the Nebraska
Secretary . of State to remove
If McCloskey should decide
to come to Nebraska, would he
make a stop at the University
of Nebraska? Answer: "Should
McCloskey come to Nebraska,
it is most probable that the
University would be high on
the list of priorities for
appearances. The Congressman
has drawn considerable support
from campuses, as students
seem to appreciate his stands
on the issues as well as, if not
better, than any other group."
That last sentence is a classic.
If McCloskey comes to UNL
would he accept an invitation
from the University Young
Republicans as a forum to
address the University
community? " The
Congressman would be
delighted to accept an
invitation from the University
of N ebraska Young
As the issue of the war is no
longer "number one" to most
Americans, he has shifted first
to the economy (until
mid-August) and latest to
Nixon's alleged interference
with the judicial process just as
any other candidate would.
With these shifts, his
glorious campaign to end the
war, "even if I have to run for
the Presidency to do it,"
becomes more and more
shaded by political ambition.
I would say that almost
campaign will go nowhere.
Washington Post columnist
Robert D. Novak pointed out
this summer that McCloskey's
money, his enthusiasm, and
almost all his volunteer support
is coming from people who are
The liberal Republicans
such as Hatfield, Javits,
Goodell, and Brooke are not
supporting McCloskey. Within
the GOP his support is
minimal, so minimal that he
probably couldn't be re-elected
in his own California district.
f fy The king who
yj hated kids
Once upon a time there was
an Old King who had a
thousand children. As kings go,
he was a pretty good Old King,
gentle and kind and
thoughtful. But he had one,
tiny, little flaw-he couldn't
In fact, the Old King
couldn't even abide the sight of
children. Particularly his own.
He found them noisy,
undependable and downright
immature. When he saw one of
them coming, he frowned and
crossed the street.
Of course, he always said in
public how much he loved his
children and how much he was
going to do for them. Some
day. He even invited them to
cocktail parties at his Royal
Palace every blue moon or
so-one at a time.
Naturally, the children
knew they were unloved and
unwanted. Most had to struggle
to survive each passing day. So
they grew up disinherited and
disenchanted. And, naturally,
their behavior was none too
Naturally, they stole
hubcaps and snatched purses
and sometimes even hit people
on the head. Naturally, this
made the Old King's decent,
law-abiding subjects indignant.
"Really!" they said. "You
must do something to correct
the behavior of your children.
They're an awful nuisance."
Well, the Old King groaned,
rubbed his head, took two
aspirin and finally announced:
"In order to make better
human beings of my children, I
am going to build a Royal
Correctional Facility for
So the King hired a Minister
of Corrections and told him to
build a Correctional Facility in
the Palace basement where it
would be sort of out of sight.
But build it cheap," said the
Old King. "I'm not made of
So the Minister bought a
thousand steel-cages of the
smallest possible size and hired
a hundred Correctional
Officers at the lowest possible
salaries and game them each a
club for correcting purposes.
When all was ready, the Old
King called in his children.
"Look," he said, not looking at
them, "as a father it's my duty
to correct your behavior. Each
of you will kindly get into one
of those cages until your
behavior improves. It's for
your own good."
Privately, the King was a
touch disturbed by his
decision. "But after all," he
said to himself, "what else
could 1 do?" And he tried to
forget the whole thing.
Oddly enough, however, the
behavior of his children didn't
improve a whit in the cages. In
fact, it got worse. And pretty
soon, the children were
banging on the bars demanding
to be let out.
Their clamor angered the
Old King. "How can I let you
out," he asked irately, "when
your behavior's grown worse?"
And he doused them brutally
with a fire hose until they shut
up-f or their own good.
Even so, the longer they
were kept in their cages, the
more impossible their behavior
became. Finally, they got loose
one day and ran around the
basement, biting guards and
making nasty threats of what
they'd do if they weren't let
It was more than the Old
King could endure. "The
ungrateful wretches," he cried,
"are behaving like animals!"
And hardening his heart, he
corrected them all permanently
by shooting them all
dead-plus, unfortunately, a
couple of dozen correctional
officers who got in the way.
The Old King apologized
profusely for his
marksmanship, but not for his
decision. "After all," he said,
"seeing that even my vast
Royal Correctional Facility
couldn't improve their
behavior, what else could I
