Let's get one serious thing straight right now-I'm
behind the folks asking for a more liberal dorm policy
100 per cent. And seriously, I think that the dorm
folks are handling themselves in as rational a manner
as has been seen around here in a while.
So it's time to lower the tent poles in all those
rooms in the men's dorms and start visiting.
Wednesday night I stopped in to the Union
Centennial Room just in time to see Chancellor
Zumberge don his flak jacket and face a verbal
barrage from all the people who haven't had a visit in
three or four years.
I couldn't quite tell what he was in favor of, but
the students made their position clear. Three speakers
were in favor of the revolution, five put all their
visitation eggs in the "American way" basket, and
one irate dorm dweller showed up "because I heard
there was an interesting party going on."
But as far as the regents are concerned, it seems no
sense makes sense.
The Creative News Department, or, Wouldn't You
Rather Have Red This Than The Truth:
"California Governor Ronald Reagan broke into
uncontrollable laughter Monday night at the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln Coliseum when he
was asked to give his opinion of families receiving
"After Nebraska Sen. Carl Curtis quieted Reagan
by stuffing large denomination bills into all his
pockets, Reagan said, 'Well, they're better off than
you poor suckers out here in Nebraska.'
"Outside the Coliseum, about 75 individuals
picked their noses in protest of the Reagan
appearance. A spokesman for the group said the move
was a symbolic protest in that Reagan had never been
observed picking his nose, while poor people are
. often depicted in that pose.
Several small clashes between people attending the
Reagan event and the protesters marred the even ing.
During the disruptions nine persons were killed, 23
were reported injured, and more than 410 were
disgusted and went home to watch the late movie."
Congratulations to the Union Program Council and
the organizers of Black Culture Week for two fine
shows Thursday afternoon. Both Margaret Mead's
speech and the Clark Terry-Preston Love Jam session
were top-notch events. If you missed either or both
of them, kick yourself in the wingwang.
Surprisingly, only the dullards of Rainbow Studios
gave me "That was no woman, that was my wife," as
a punch line to last week's joke. The winning entry,
came from J.J. Thomsen. And as a private note to
J J., I do know how you arrived at your answer, that
was the point of the thing, and you were the only
respondent who realized it.
The winning answer : "Why, what's the
Second place ridicules for even bothering with this
inane nonsense goes to Bob King. Bob's answer and
contribution to the general hilarity of the situation:
"It was crispy Sal. I didnt kick her out of bed for
being crispy and munching saltines."
And strike me blind if that isn't exactly the way
the answers came to me.
Again, the following thing is the first part of the
joke. Give it a punch line and bring it or send it to
me, 34 Nebraska Union. Special consideration will be
given to any entry accompanied by a bribe.
Two hippies are standing on a street corner
panhandling change from passersby. The hippies
haven "t had a bath in weeks when a matronly woman
approaches them walking her toy poodle. .
At the same time, the hippies are about to cross
the street. Hippie No. 1 asks No. 2 if the street is
clear of traffic, and No. 2 replies that the only thing
in sight is a dog.
Hippie No. I steps into the street and is flattened
by a speeding bus. Hippie No. 2 asks the woman for a
handout. At the same time that Hippie No. 1 says, "I
thought you said the only things on the street was a
dog," the matronly woman asks the second hippie,
"Why don 't you clean up and get a job?"
He replies: Finish this joke in less than 100 words
unless you need more.
To the three boys who thought Nebraska was
trying to run up the score on Kansas-they were, and
I would have given my right arm to see them get the

As UNL seniors involved in a wide range of
campus activities, we would like to register our
concern and opposition to LB 1271.
Mortar Board for years has stood for excellence
and responsibility in the area of student involvement.
We feel that the University is a viable community
whose policies should be decided by students.
Passage of LB 1271 threatens the continuation of
certain University institutions that have been
developed over their many years of operation. It
would jeopardize student government in the form of
ASUN. Speakers and educators could no longer visit
our campus due to a lack of financial revenue. The
only existing student newspaper, the Daily
Nebraska n, would certainly be cut in its effectiveness,
range and scope if the Legislature passes LB 1271.
The over-all effect on the University would be
Mortar Boards feel that this is a particularly
dubious time to impair student input and the
collective student voice. The University, following a
national trend, has experienced a winding-down of
student activity. Certainly this should not be
Finally, as we have been taught during our stay at
the University, we believe that each man has his side
of the story, his right to communicate with others.
LB 1271 would silence this dialogue. We oppose the
silence, for silence means ignorance.

The presidential game
Nixon showed his true colors when he bombed .
Vietnam. His China trip was merely a political
maneuver to steal a little New Left thunder, moreover
it was an attempt to join the peace movement and
make himself a peace candidate like Sen. MoGovem
or Sen. Muskie. Nixon is a rascal and so are all the
candidates other than McGovern and Muskie. If
neither is nominated, I am not voting in the
presidential election because it will be the same old
game of putting up two rascals to choose between.
Humphrey, Jackson and Mills would become
stooges cf the Pentagon just like Johnson and Nixca.
Dr. Spock would be a great president, but the
People's Party will not be on the ballot. Eldridge
Cleaver and George Jackson would be statesmen, not
merely presidents,but the U.S. murdered Jackson and
No, emphatically, to the stooges and rascals. They
will probably put up more stooges of the Pentagon.
Meanwhile, the Viet Cong will shoot down more U.S.
planes and kill more puppet troops until Saigon falls
and Vietnam will once more be completely free of
imperialism. They threw out the Japanese
imperialists, and the French imperialists, so it can't be
very long until they kick out the U.S. imperialists and
the puppet government. ; ',

The writers of articles like "Reagan lets them eat
soup" (Daily Nebraskan Feb. 23), and "Reagan calls
for unity behind Nixon" should make a more honest
effort at reporting a complete, unbiased account.
Reagan's remark about being concerned (as a
Republican) about a Democratic president "sitting
down across the table from the Communist Chinese,"
was made in a historical context. He was referring to
the apparent inability of past Democratic presidents
to promote the nation's welfare in similar situations.
Reagan cited specific examples such as Franklin D.
Roosevelt at the Yalta Conference and Harry S
Truman at Potsdam, and contrasted these incidents to
Dwight Eisenhower's successful dealing with foreign
powers during his administration.
Furthermore, it was noted that Sen. Curtis
"expressed delight" at receiving the $100,000 in
campaign funds from the dinner. Curtis was
expressing his belief that fund raising for political
campaigning was the one aspect of politics he did not
enjoy, but that it was nevertheless a political
While the Daily Nebraskan mentioned a protest in
front of the Coliseum in which "Most of the soup was
eaten by students, to keep warm in the 20 degree
weather." No mention was made of the multitude of
car owners who found their tires flat after the dinner
and likewise had to endure the weather to change
Such an undertaking could hardly promote a
freedom of belief and expression that Americans are
I've compared Regent Prokop's Douglas County
Gazette article "Attacking .Homosexuality as a
Disease" with Edmund Bergler's book. It appears that
he copied extensively from Berglers book,
Homosexuality: Disease or Way of Life?
Why hasn't the Daily Nebraskan, ASUN, the
Faculty Senate, the administration and the regents
censured Prokop for his conduct?
If those in authority are corrupt, they do not
deserve our respect.
