She held a bamboo ruler in one hand and
pointed it at Johnny Porter seated in the front
Her voice sounded off, "YOU, Porter,
begin the day's lesson." Well, John started
right in reading. But half way through his
reading his eighth grade teacher was
sleeping. She was resting, the nun that had
taught grandfathers, mothers and their sons,
all in the same family. She had been known to
be highly strict, break rulers over heads and
send girls home with high dresses. She was
liked for her witty, always cynical-sometimes
moody, personality: v: '

class stopped clowning. The eighth grade she
taught was the -stepping stone into high

studying in a South American university. I
saw student activism, mostly on the political
front. Students wanted changes in govern
ment policy. They put little attention on
liberalizing campus life, such as working for
more visitation hours or coed dorms.
Girls wore fashionable pantsults and
drosses to classes Young people going to
college looked on it os a status achievement.
Going to class everyday, I would see
construction workers in ragged clothes,
sweating as they worked. At noon, mothers
and wives of the workers brought them their
lunches, while at the university, as everyone
said,- we were going to be someone someday. '

I saw all kinds of feci-.: on a more relaxed

with long hair blowing freely in the wind. On
that windy October day, in class outside, I
realized, what I would cail a common purpose.
-A common purpose that eighth grade, the
foreign university -and UNL ail had to
educate, then send young men and women
into a world. A world that needs and should
welcome them. ,

If the Daily Nebrasfcan rui3 any-future
. Woodwards and Bernsteins, they certainly,
weren't the reporters that covered the recent
Hinsdale Day event at Architecture HalL
("Public gets a view," Daily Nebraska."!,;
Nov. 4.) .
Hinsdale Day was a dynamic and colorful
event in honor of the Hinsdale Patent lettered
on the urinai in the men's restroom, but more
importantly, and a point surprisingly missed
by the coverage, was the fact that it was put
on by an anti-organization of students In fun'
and for fun. . .
You missed the spirit and the tone of the
celebration, turning it into' a piece of dry,
factual reporting. Admittedly, we were
excited about the sudden " appearance ' of
-reporters, as even Ihe liveHsst -of events here
are passed over by ycur tot. You, 4he
reporters, became a part of the event along
with all of us. Haven't you learned yet. the
subtleties of tongue-in-cheek? - ' ,y V.v
It is an unfortunate malaise when"
everything is taken so seriously that "fun"
loses definition and place in the University.
Also, it scorn;; you would thirst for activities
and events that happen on this campus which
are the brainchiids of the students them
selves, rather than the dictates of universal
campus tradition. ; . . '-
