POLITICAL DISSENT:
Worldwide Student Protest Explodes

McCarthy's Campaigning Style:
Free and Easy, Like Adlai's

4

Collegiate Press Service
Although students throughout
many parts of the world have
been a powerful political force for
generations, the worldwide stu-
dent movement has been rapidly
gaining momentum since the be-
ginning of the year.
Within recent weeks, students
have played significant roles in
the political developments of
many countries, including Czech-
oslovakia, Poland, Spain, Egypt,
Italy, and Japan. In many other
countries, students are beginning
to realize their potential power
and are demanding radical polit-
ical and education reforms.
Students throughout the world
are not unified with a common
goal and strategy. Generally
speaking, however, students are
demanding - and frequently re-
ceiving - more freedom from
their government, more respon-
sibility in decision-making, and a
reformed educational curriculum
that is relevant to the new social
issues in the world. Students in
many countries also are demon-
strating against the war in Viet-
nam, stressing their desire for
lasting peace in the future. Anti-
American sentiment has reached
new dimensions in many student
circles.

Although the worldwide student
movement seems to be gaining
momentum, protest politics in
Europe, Asia, and elsewhere is
not a new phenomenon. Students,
for example, were largely respon-
sible for the overthrowof ex-Pres-
ident Sukarno in Indonesia, and
students played a major role in
the overthrow of the Syngman
Rhee government in South Korea.
In the United States, however,
students are just beginning to de-
mand educational reform and
Presidential candidates, for the
first time, are making a major
appeal for student support. But
American students still have not
come of age when compared to
students in some other countries,
as developments within the past
few months make clear.
Czech Students
In Czechoslovakia, student pro-
tests against educational and po-
litical repression have been large-
ly responsible for changes in the
leadership of the Communist
Party there. The new leaders are
trying to combine socialism and
freedom with the "widest possible
democratization."
Brutal police suppression of a
student demonstration last Octo-
ber discredit the old-guard Com-
munists, and the Party leaership

was taken over by liberals in
January. Now, students are in the
forefront of the movement to end
all abuses of power, such as phony
trials, and to work for a more
humane and democratic regime.
Independent student organizations
have been formed at the Univer-
sity of Prague and elsewhere
within the last few weeks to press
freedom. When the old-guard
for the students' demands for
leaders were in power, student
groups were carefully controlled.
Even though students'in Czech-
oslovakia have a new climate of
freedom, they still are keeping a
close eye on the new government
in case there are attempts to re-
instate some of the restrictions on,
them.
Polish Protests
In Poland, students throughout
the country have been involved
in massive demonstrations against
government censorship, police bru-
tality, and the lack of free speech.
Polish officials have threatened
-the students with severe punish-
ment and have made every effort
to put down the student protests.
Polish students have clashed with
police on several occasions, and
have held unauthorized meetings
and sit-ins. Last week, some 2,000
Warsaw University students held

an unauthorized meeting to de-
mand the reinstatement of six
humanities professors who were
dismissed because of their liberal
view.
Students began demonstrating
after the expulsion from Warsaw
University of two students who
took part in a protest against the
closing by government censors of
"Dziady," a 19th century classic
of the Polish theater which is
critical of Czarist rule in Poland.
Many analysts think the wave of
student demonstrations is being
used to intensify a major power
struggle within the Communist
party leadership. The outcome is
still far from clear.
Clash in Spain
In Spain, the government last
week ordered the University of
Madrid closed indefinitely after
a clash between students and po-
lice. Spanish students have been
demanding educational reform and
more freedom. Students became
fed up with the official govern-
ment student association and
formed the Democratic Union of
Spanish Students (DUSS).
The Spanish government cannot
afford to let students succeed in
their efforts to break loose from
government control, because then
it would be extremely difficult for

the state to deny the same right
to workers. Students and police MILWAUKEE, Wis. (A") - The never had so much national at- pertinent quotations from the
