-Belgrade, Yugoslavia The
miniature republic of Litchten
steiri waved .us a fond farewell
as the train lurched to a sudden
halt at the Austrian border for
where the fun started. I've never
.'yet crossed an international
border according to Hoyle and
this time was no exception. It
seems' my visa was stamped
through the wrong zone, it was
outdated, nine tenths of my cur
rency was illegal, and my pass
port was slightly wrinkled. For
tunately there 'was nothing
wrong that couldn't be squared
away with a few Chesterfields
so I relaxed.
Things went remarkably well
for about ten minutes. Then the
train stopped at some backwoods
place I can't even pronounce and
two redcaps started lugging my
baggage onto a platform while a
smiling gendarme placidly ex
plained that "This is yesterday's
train and your tickets are for to
day's train which isn't due until -r
tomorrow. More Chesterfields
plus a small bottle of shaving

again throughout the Balkans.
As we n eared the Yugoslav
frontier the anxious Austrians

I have very recently and very
forcibly been made to realize the
attitude of a certain segment of
the townspeople toward me as
a student. I wanted to rent a
house here in town. After I had
paid a deposit as an assurance of
good faith, the other party did
not feel bound to the agreement.
It seems that these people feel
that students are quite good
enough to come in to their stores
and spend money, but are not
qualified to live in the same
neighborhood with them.
I would like to say that I
wanted to rent the house on at
least a semi-permanent basis
and even went so far as to offer
The weary engine sneezed,
wheezed, and inched forward to
begin the night ride to Zagreb.
Your columnist recently had
an interview with himself.
As any good interviewer must
do, he tried to get answers for
those questions most likely to be
asked by the student body. Some
of the q'uestions and answers
Question: What does 'Nonplus'
"According to the dictionary,
nonplus' means a 'state in which
no more can be said or done;
quandry.' The word was chosen
as a title because it is short,
unusual, and has several impli
cations." . .
Question: What is the purpose
"A primary purpose of the
column is to provoke thought by
establishing points of argument.
Then, too, the column attempts
to highlight those areas in which
further thought and action is
Question: Who writes Non
plus; is Snook a real person?
"Yes, I am a student. I write
all the nonplus columns no one
else is to blame for anything that
appears in the columns!"
Question: Why do you think
your opinions are worthy of stu
"Any opinion is worthy of
attention. Some of my opinions
might be good. All of them are
offered free. And in making
knowny my opinions, someone
else might be prompted to make
his known which results In all

that they were not interested in
having students in the place.

of us sharing our ideas."
Question: Do you consider
yourself an expert in some
fields? - . "
"Of course not. I'm just
another student expressing his
ideas in the, hope of provoking
some in. return. I do base my
columns on information pro
vided by those who are in:a posi
tion to know about various
fields. It often happens that
errors in my cloumns bring out
the experts, who seemingly are
unwilling to volunteer their
opinions publicly and: on levels
that all of us can understand."
Do you write on a

.is deliberately exaggerated, al
though not at the expense of in
tegrity. In the first place, I want
a general readership, which is
not interested in neutral mater
ial or platitudes. In addition, I
try to put my ideas across in a
way so they are not subject to
ready acceptance, but to discus
Question: Why are you so crit
ical; don't you think Nonplus is
somewhat negative in its
"Criticism is a keystone to
real, lasting progress. Civiliza
tion might be compared to a
building. If 'you are putting up
a building and don't see andre
place the rotten brick in the
foundation before you finish it,
your whole structure is weak
and likely to fall down at the
most inopportune time. By spot
ting and replacing the weakness
es early, you have a much firm
er base for your future, progress."-
. Question: But when you criti
cize, why don't you offer sug
gestions for improvement?
"I do. There has never been a
Nonplus without a direct or an
implied suggestion for improve
ment. Many times the sugges
tions are implied because it is
really up to : the student public
to decide the nature of the im
provements it wants to make."
Question: What's your person
al background? What do you
think of student readers? Why
have you chosen - such subjects
as religion and sex? Do adverse
Letters to the Editor disturb
you? What is your political posi

of ground. What do you say that
the answers to them' wait for
another column sometime?"
