About The daily Nebraskan. ([Lincoln, Neb.) 1901-current | View Entire Issue (Feb. 5, 1975)
I was thrilled to read the beautifully written and expressive
special story .on the South Dakota Czechs by your talented and
sensitive writer Lynn Silhasek in Thursday's paper.
The settling of this incredible food-producing portion of the
earth in the past 75 years by Czechs, Danes, Germans, Swedes,
Norwegians, Irish and others in order to make homes and
contribute to the nation and world is a great saga.
As one who 50 years ago walked to school in Dewel County,
South Dakota in -25 degree winters, I could empathize with those
and hundreds of thousands of others who literally laid their lives
on the line to make the Great Plains of the USA vital for all time.

I am one of those students you will find sitting in the front of
the class raising my hand, and I object to being classified as a
brown-noser by Joe Dreesen in his column "Smiling Grimly"
(Daily Nebraskan, Jan. 30).
It is a fact that students who sit in the first two or three rows
receive better grades on the average. Why? Because in front you are
better able to hear what the instructor is saying and better able to
see what is being put on the blackboard or overhead projector.
As for raising my arm, I do this for two reasons: to ask a
question of the instructor or to answer a question put forth by the
instructor. If more students would raise their arms in response to
the latter, it would not seem like the instructor is always calling on
a few selected students.
It is apparent from the subject matter of the previously
mentioned article that Mr. Dreesen is a student who sits in the back
of the classroom and, because he can neither hear nor see what is
going on, he has resorted to daydreaming, which is the only place I
can think of where he had time to dream up such a worthless
Not worth stiff drink
Whoever said Blood on the Tracks wasn't worth the price of a
cup of coffee isn't worth the price of a stiff drink.
For the price of the space heshe used to say it, somebody could
have bought the album.
"Jack of Hearts" alone is worth the price of a Sam Peckinpah
movie or used copy of Illuminations.
