T e a c het·s mu st n ot atte nd college beca u se of tenible temptation offered b y Lad y Nico ~ in e.

The Stat e Board of Edu cation f o rma!ly d ec r eed that t eachers of the state were not t o b e given " leaves of absence" to continu e education at Columbia, Chicago, or 1'\m·thwcstern on a ccount of the preva len ce of the cigar e t te habit a mong the stud ent;;. The Stat e Board , r ea li z in g t hat t he t ea ch er s employ ed in Nebi·aska are creatures of low moral s t a ndards, a nd parti cularl y s u sce pt:bl e to evil habits, have barred the t ea-: h ers from th e lea din g ed ucational in s titution s in the country so that they ma y not bec0me c ig are tte a ddi cts. Of course th e Board beli eves it is do"ng a rare act of charity in pa ss ing s uc h a d e cr ee, but w e wond e r if their "Holi er than thou" attitude should not b e mark e d as a choi ce bit of humor. \V e would only remind the stern fathers of t h e Board that th e o ld maxim "C harit~· s hould begin at hom e," is no t a n ew saying but o ne often quoted by ge ntl e m en of th e ir own time. Of course w e concede th e ri g ht of the Board to legis late sc h ool m atte r s· but we wonder if it is possib' e for a group of politi c ian s who infest th e hall s of th e legi s lat ure wh er e toba cc o s moke can be s liced with a kni fe and law m a k e r s are eve r prac ticin g· th e gentl e art of s hoo tin g the brown juice into th e bras s c u sp idors, t o be wholly un tai nted by t he ir s urroundings. The qu estion we have finall y arrived at is this: Are the State Board fath ers forcing a c ampai g n issu e or do th ey see th e fo ll y of the ir ways and are t hey t r y ing to s t eer the coming gen e rati o n aright"?

Bracke: It must be. I didn't think any chicl<en that had had a mother could be as tough as this. Milam: Did you know Carl Rosenquist got hurt last night? Place: No, how? Milam: The Gospel Team ran a-vvay with him.
