Draft Remains Leading Issue For Educators

Leading educators and government officials are still wrestling with the problem of student deferments. To date, no single, unified plan has risen from the multitude of solutions proposed, but more and more ideas are being thrown into the pot. Some of these plans are:

The Conant Plan—President James B. Conant of Harvard University suggested that all youths be Inducted Into military service upon reaching the age of 18. Even those who are physically unfit for military service should be drafted and put to useful work. Under this plan, absolutely nobody would be deferred.

Counter Plan—The Association of Colleges and Universities of the State of New York was lukewarm to Conant's idea. It objected to having ail men between 18 and 20 in at the same time because it would do serious harm to the total education system. As a counterproposal they suggested that basic military training be required as soon as he reached military age. Moreover, tests should be instituted to determine whether or not a student is fit to go to college.

The McGrath Plan—Dr. Burl J. McGrath. United States commissioner of Education, proposed that 100,000 students a year be made eligible for deferment. If they could show ability to do better than average college work. A similar plan to postpone Induction of superior students has been drawn up by the Selective Service Scientific Advisory committee. To get deferred, students would have to attain a score of at least 120 in any army-type classification test.

A Yankee In Texas?

A. C. P. Jan. 12—The Dally Texan, student newspaper of the University of Texas, has made an-other editorial plea to end segregation on its campus. It asks the state legislature to approve plans which would make "no attempt to provide segregated graduate and professional training in separate Negro institutions beyond that in existance on October 1, 1950," and provide that no segregated training be recommended except whore it would be cheaper or where the demand by Negro students is very great.

The Texan referred to 35 Texas Negroes who. although enrolled at Texas, have to take their medical training elsewhere. Two Negroes are now attending the University of Texas medical school.

Texas should end segregation in its higher education institu tions,’’ the editorial declared. And it added, "Texas and Texans can be proud—if the legislature proves to be as far-sighted as its advisers.

A Tribute To Dependability

An outfielder once had to run after a long fly that promised to bounce off the fence in deep center field.

The guv had a good head start on the ball, but it took everything he had to keep his lead. This player started running and stirred up such a wind that the other players had to lean backward to keep balance.

Anyway, when this guy got near the fence, he saw he was there in plenty of time; but he couldn't stop. He skidded in the dust, but it was too late.

A sickening thud shook the stadium, and the crowd stood breathlessly waiting to see the outcome.

The team manager left the bench and ran to the spot, but there was nothing he could do.

Where this guv hit the wall was an outline of a man with all the features of an oil painting. It looked like someone had just drawn the picture of a ball player.

The umpire ran out to see, and turned and called the batter out. It was easy to see from the painting that the guv had the ball when he hit.    

Everybody left the ball park but the manager. He sat and wept for two weeks until someone asked him why he cried so long. He said, “I got some ball players on my club that would have let that hall drop when they hit the fence I hate like heck to lose such a dependable man.

Students Are Supervised To Death, Says Educator

MORAL: They held services in the ball park; and, instead of burrying the guy, they just got a can of paint and brushed over him.

If women are as bad as some men say, it would be wise for the bachelor to go to sleep early, leave church immediately after services, and steer clear of best men and jewelry stores.

Pressure groups in Washington are like kibitzers in a card game. They direct the playing of the game and blame the player when he doesn’t draw a pat hand.

It is said that if wishes were horses beggars would ride. About March 15, we all begin to realize that if wishes were horses, beggars would need two wishes apiece and several bus tokens in case of new taxes.

College Students Bitter But Resigned To Draft Fate

New York. Jan. 29th—The typical attitude of the majority of wur-ellglble young men at the University of California is. "We are bitter and resigned, frustrated and disillusioned, but we aren’t mad at anyone specifically, and we’re not saying ‘to heck with it.’ ”

This, says the current issue of Look magazine summarizes the attitude toward the draft it found on the campuses of four representative colleges, California. North western, Princeton and North Carolina. The vast majority of students, the article reveals, would prefer to serve in the Navy or Air Force. The Infantry and Marines are regarded as "having mighty little future.”

There is little hoopla on the campuses, and not much flag waving. While the students agree Rus-sia is to blame for the current world situation. President Truman has lost their confidence, and dissatisfaction with Washington leadership in general. As one campus

lender at Northwestern put it. "If the foreign policy were more intelligently handled or at least more clearly and cleanly handled I’d be more willing- to go. I'm not going to volunteer . . . I’ll go when I'm called, but not willingly."

In spite of this. Secretary of State Dean Acheson "is far and away the most popular" figure in the Administration, according to the students at the University of North Carolina, and, the article states, ex-President Hoover’s "Op-peration Gibraltar" stand has been widely rejected.

A general falling off in the quality of class room work is noticeable at Princeton and elsewhere. in fact, at this Ivy League school the standard greeting has become. "Where d'ya stand?’’, meaning in the draft.

There is a realistic acceptance of the future by our young men and women. Look concludes. Today’s young student is ready for ""blood and sweat—but no tears."

Yellow Spring". O. —(I.P.) Blaming excessive timidity of college administrators for ''whatever Communistic tendencies there are in American colleges today,” DrDouglas McGregor, president of Antioch College, recently declared that "college administration and classroom teaching are both authoritarian. .

"The student is supervised to death. He lives in a world of rigid rules and regulations and of petty dictatorship. Student government is of limited value since only unimportant responsibilities are gen uinely delegated."

The antidote, he asserted, is genuine self-government in our colleges. "Democracy is more a word than a fact in the lives of our young people because we preach its virtues while denying them t h e opportunity to learn from experience how to govern themselves.”

Dr. McGregor described the ways in which students participate in all phases of the operation of Antioch College, "We have found,”he said, "that college students are capable of mature and realistic judgement even of major questions of college policy. However, we must be prepared for the fact that learning by experience involves the freedom to make mistakes.

"It is impossible to provide opportunities to learn by experience and at the same time to prevent, occasional Irresponsible behavior by a few people. It is just these incidents which, properly used, can touch important lessons concerning the power of genuine democracy.

"The public, by hasty and uninformed criticism when such incidents do occur, encourages college administrators to be timid and over-protective with students The freedoms we value in our democracy can bo maintained only

If our citizens accept personal responsibility for their own behavior.

"At Antioch, for instance, the honor system is the method by which this important fact about personal responsibility is learned. It applies not only in the classroom, but in all phases of college living it is a 'way of life’ which is learned by experience.

"A thorough-going honor system encourages such learning by providing administrative support and guidance, rather than by restrictive rules which, merely challenge the ingenuity of would-be violators. At Antioch students are continually made aware of the alternatives they face: personal responsibility and self-discipline, or restrictive administrative con trol from above.”

Business Shuns Draft Eligibles

Hamilton. N. Y. (I. P. 1—-.Although the prime employer for college graduates in February and June will be the armed forces, there is now a growing sentiment on the part of business against turning its back on these men when it is searching for a back log of manpower.

That is the opinion of Dr George Estabrooks, eminent psychologist and placement director at Colgate University He bases it on top-level talks with representa tives of business firms which yearly tour college campuses in search of men to enroll in their training programs.

These representatives have assured Dr. Estabrooks informally that there is a definite-disposition on the part of top management of their concerns to continue their policy of signing up trainees whether the graduates have only one month or a year before the military steps in.

Because of the manpower shortage which is bound to develop as prime college graduates are called into the service, business expects to adopt the long-range policy of starting these men on a training program, maintaining contact with them during their time in service, and resuming their training upon release.

The impending manpower shortage is pointed up by a survey of draft ellgibles in the class which Colgate expects to graduate in June. Only five men out of 290 prospective graduates fit into the age-exempt category of 26 or above. Similar conditions are known to prevail at most other colleges.

The ascending spiral of great; ness in America has risen because industry has produced wealth, which in turn has supported educational institutions, which in turn supplied leadership to industry in order that with each succeeding generation it might produce more wealth.—Wallace F. Bennett

Get away from the crowd when you can. Keep yourself to your self, if only for a few hours-daily. —Arthur Brisbane

63 Out To Vote In O, U, Election

(ACP)—A recent vital student election on the adoption of a revamped constitution at the University of'Oklahoma brought out exactly 63 votes. Students enroll-ment at this university is 8,500.

Following the election, a student declared in a letter to the Ok-lahoma Daily that, "From here on out there isn't a student here on this campus who has any gripe when it comes to the question of representation and politics within their chosen governing body.

"It is an outright insult to the spirit and intelligence of this supposedly class ’A’ university when a meager 68 kids . . . turn out to vote on an issue that not only effects the majority of students on campus, but also for a measure that was fought over for many months by these same intellects."

The angry student appealed to the Oklahoma student body to, "Sacrifice your comic books, sad- dle shoes and high school childish ness, which have no place in a university of this stature."

It’s A Great life ...

By Lowell Hoch

Woe is me! It is time to leave good old Kansas and look for warmer climates. The Vets Apartments are sure cool these days. The wind doesn't bother us. It just goes right on through and doesn't stop. One of the boys washed his curtains last week and put them up. He came back and found them sticking in a horizontal position.

It is reported that Mel Fishburn was sick late this week. Also, one of the hoys is suffering from asthma after last Friday night. Can’t get his breath. It was probably caused by the condition of the atmosphere.

Flash—Bob Bean will take two . . . .We hear that Apt 21 was the proving ground for a. . . .Did it run? You bet it did. The other night a spectator was over at the game in Intra-murals; and after it, was heard asking who that bald headed coach was. Now we all know that Tommy O’Dell has gray hairs but he has not pulled out all of his top growth yet. Say, have you heard that record "Kansas City” yet? It is pretty cute.

We heard that the "trumpet” player is on the loose again. Look out guys, he is quite a ladles man. Has anyone seen Vi? Thursday morning ho was observed sticking a toe out the door and hurriedly with-drawing it. We agree. it was s-s-s-oooo cold.

Arnold Beats Dumbelles in Intramural Tilt

Harvard Would Improve Faculty-Student Relations

Two girls intramural games were played Tuesday. January 23. At 6:30 the Dumbelles met Third Floor Arnold in a game which ended 12-9 in favor of Arnold.

Arleen Mohler and Lois Yoder shared scoring honors with eight points each. Beverly Turner made the lone basket for the Dumbelles.

The Faculty Females won 20-16 over the Sloppy Jo’s in the second game. Doris Coppook was high point with 12 points, while Marilyn Miller led the Sloppy Jo’s with 10.

Cambridge, Mass. (I.‘P.)—Rela-tions between students and faculty in Harvard College would be focused in the seven Harvard Houses under a new advising system proposed recently by a special faculty committee. The committee, headed by Wilbur J. Bender. Dean of Harvard College, proposed that the Harvard Houses, which have been the centers of undergraduate life for two decades, should become major units in the educational program of the college.

The committee proposed establishing a college officer in each House to serve the counseling and disciplinary function now performed by the Dean of Harvard College and his assistants, it also recommended creation of a series of small, five-student seminars, organised by faculty members within each House, which would assure students and faculty of continuing intimate and regular association. The seminar leader would also serve as faculty adviser for his group.

These seminars, requiring a limited amount of outside work, would be in addition to the student's regular four-course schedule of classes. They would restore to the majority of students the opportunity for tutorial study under faculty direction, which in recent years has been limited mainly to candidates for honors.

The report called for a return to the kind of teacher-student relationship that existed before the crowding of colleges by the postwar influx of veterans, and proposed ways for making this relationship more effective here. By making full use of the seven undergraduate Houses—each with its own body of around 400 students and its own staff of faculty associates—the committee argued that Harvard can provide "an education which combines the best qualities of the small college and the largo university.”

While agreeing that "the new counselling profession has much to contribute to American educaton,” the committee declared its preference for "advising of students by

regular faculty members as the backbone of the Harvard advising program.”

Although recommending major changes in the system of student-teacher relations for upperclassmen, the committee suggested that the present system of advising for Freshmen—by the faculty-manned Board of Freshmen Advisers under the direction of the Dean of Freshmen— continue essentially unchanged, but with a smaller group of advisers, each giving more time to the work.

The committee also recommended that the college’s present specialized counselling services can be continued but that their role should be assisting in "an advisory system in which the teaching fac ulty is of central importance.” These special services at Harvard include the Department of Hygiene, Office of Tests, Bureau of Study Counsel, and Office of Stu dent Placement. The committee recommended expansion of the Office of Tests.

Bulldogs Overcome Swedes 53 - 51

Dogs Move Up With Loop Win Over Bethany

The McPherson College Bulldogs connected on seven of their first eight shots to build up a twelve point lead which the Bethany College Swedes could never quite overcome, last Friday night at Lindsborg. The 53-51 win over the Swedes was the third conference win in as many games for the Bulldogs, and moved them into a tie for third place with the Swedes.

The Bulldogs led all the way except for a 2-all tie early in the game, but had to resort to ball control the last few minutes of the game to protect their slim lead.

With but three minutes of the game gone the Bulldogs were enjoying a 14-2 lead. The Swedes started whittling away at the lead and had cut it to 18-11 by the end of the first quarter. By the half the Bulldog lead had dwindled to two points 29-27.

The third quarter found the Bulldogs scoring 14 points to 9 for the Swedes, and lead 43-36 at the end of the quarter. The score worked around to 53-46 and the Bulldogs attempted to stall out the remaining minutes.

The Swedes stole the ball several times and narrowed the gap to the final 53-51.

In the final minute of play, both Carlson and Hahn were ejected from the game as they committed their fifth personal. Sanderson was forced from the game earlier.

Loren Blickenstaff led the scoring for both teams, with 16 points, although he fouled out with five minutes left. Dave Anderson was high for Bethany with 15 points, followed by Carlson with 13.

Frank "Chief" Hanagarne turned in his beat performance of the season, against the Swedes. Beside doing an excellent job of rebounding and good job defensively "Chief” scored 10 points for the Bulldog cause.

Although the Bulldogs started out on a torrid note, they cooled off some as they hit only 27 percent of their shots as compared to Bethanys 30 percent.

Bulldogs Lose Thriller To Bethel 65-66 Tuesday

The McPherson College Bull dogs ralllied the last half of the ballganme but could not erase the 41-37 half time lead the Bethel Graymaroons held as Loganbill hit 22 points to lead the Newton club to a 66-65 win In Kansas Conference play here Tuesday, January 30.

It was a well played game that saw Wayne Blickenstaff lead the Dog with 20 points. Loren Blickenstaff 17, and Bob Bechtel hit 12. The hopes for a Bulldog victory went down the drain when Bechtel's desperation shot, with seconds to go, fell short. The box score:

With almost every day seeing some change in the standings in the Kansas Conference, the standings may he different when you read this, but as of Wednesday they stacked up like this. Ottawa was resting in first with Kansas Wesleyan in second. Bethany in third. McPherson in fourth, Beth-, el in fifth, Baker in sixth and C. of E. in seventh.

The McPherson Bulldogs fumbled a chance to move into a tie for second place when they lost to Bethel Tuesday night. This loss dropped them into fourth place. Bethel has the same percentage as McPherson, but have not played as many games, thus leaving them a notch behind the Bulldogs.

Baker met Bethany in Linds-borg Wednesday night, and Ottawa entertained C. of K. Thursday night, but this had to go to the printer before these results were

in.    -

Tonight McPherson is host to Bethany in a return game. Last week the Bulldogs outlasted the Swedes 53-51, and with two Swedes reportedly going to be gone for their draft physicals this week, the Bulldogs should win this one also.

in another game tonight. Kansas Wesleyan will journey to Baldwin to meet the Baker Wildcats. Saturday night Bethel will meet Friends of Wichita in a return game. In their first meeting the G r a y m a r o o n s had little trouble in downing the Quakers.

Next Tuesday Bethel will entertain C. of E. at Newton. Wednesday Baker is at Ottawa. Ft. Hays is at K. W. U.. McPherson will go to Friends on Thursday. Bethany will make its eastern swing next week end when she takes on Baker at Baldwin next Friday night and Ottawa at Ottawa Sat urday night. K. W. U. will go to Bethel next Saturday also.

Should the Bulldogs win this second meeting, it will be the first time since 1935 that Bulldog teams have made a clean sweep of it against the Swedes. On only three occasions have Bulldog teams accomplished this feat. This was in the years of 1923, ’34 and ’35.

The Swedes have swept the meetings with the Bulldogs on five occasions, in 1926, ’30, ’32, ’40, and ’41.

The longest win steak amassed against the Swedes by Bulldog teams'was 12 wins, running from the second game of 1933 through 1938. Taking the cue from the Bulldogs, the Swedes followed

this Bulldog win streak with one of their own, as they won 10 from the Bulldogs before losing to them.

It has been reported that the Swedes will be minus the services of regular Dick Hahn and sub Lawrence Danielson tonight, an these two men will be gone for their draft physicals. Who Coach Ray Hahn will name to start In son Dick Hahn’s place is not known, but it will very likely be Norman Kliewer, sophmore speedster from Hillsboro. Other Swede starters will be Dave Anderson and Leon Reed at the forward positions. Bill Carlson at center, and Kliewer and Glenn Sanderson at the guards.

Couch C h a 1 m e r "Woody” Woodard is expected to go along with his regular starters, which are: Loren Blickenstaff and Earl Grindle, forwards, Bob Bechtel, center, and Wayne Blickenstaff

and Gene Smith at the guard spots. Coach Woodard con also expect relief performances from Frank "Chief Hanagarne, Duane Jamision, Dale Carpenter and others.

With a win tonight the Bulldogs can move hack into third place, but should they lose they will drop to fifth place.

The Swedes have not played since they last met the Bulldogs, while the Canines have dropped a game to the Bethel Graymaroons.

With the advantage of being on their home floor and the Swedes minus the services of two of their men the Bulldogs should resume their quest of the higher places of the Kansas Conference with a win tonight.
