Xavier Vetoes Lecture by Barnett,
Cites His 'Immoral' Stand on Bias

Regents Accept Gifts, Grants at December Meeting

v - U

CINCINNATI - Xavier Univer-
sity officials have vetoed an in-
vitation by the student council
president for Mississippi Gov.
Ross Barnett to speak there.
The Rev. Patrick Ratterman,
who serves as dean of men, ex-
plained that Barnett's stand on
racial segregation was one with
which Xavier could not, agree.
"Xavier is a university with a
publicly stated commitment - a
commitment to Christian ideas
and Christian ideals . . . Gov.
Barnett's position on segregation
contradicts these Christian and
American ideals and is, we feel,
basically immoral," Rev. Ratter-
man said.
He added that , freedom of
speech was not an issue. But
"freedom of place" was, and
"whether or not Barnett expresses
his views in person on the Xavier
campus at this time is within our
right to determine."

ITHACA-Future Cornell Uni-
versity students will be able to
hustle through their undergradu-
ate career in two years, or take as
long as six years, according to
President James A. Perkins.
Urge More
Free Study



cators have proposed that Ameri-
can students be given at least two
more years of free education be-
yond present high school levels.
The Education Policies Com-
mission which is sponsored by the
National Education Association
and the American Association of
School Administrators, urged that
such a program concern itself
with the "intellectual growth" of
young people.
In its report, a 36-page booklet
etintled "Universal Opportunity
for Education Beyond the High
School," the commission noted
that more than two-thirds of
America's youth finish high
school and that the number of
these that attend college is con-
tinually increasing.
Time for Change
The report also stated, how-
ever, that "the nation as a whole
has never accepted the idea of
universal opportunity as applying
to education beyond the high
school. It is time to do so."
The principal point in the com-
mission's report was the conten-
tion that free public education for
everyone through high school is
inadequate for life in today's com-.
plicated society. In order for citi-
zens to be prepared to meet their
increased responibsilities, the re-
port stated, they must be given
increased public education.
In addition to a tuition-free
college, the commission also called
for free transportation and liv-
ing quarters for studetns.
Other Subsidies
"Not only must there be no tui-
tion charges, but if there is to be
equal educational opportunity for
youth, the student who has no
public college close by must be
provided with transportation to
and from the nearest one or with]
the means of living away from
home," the report said.
The commission did not esti-
mate the cost of such a program,;
but said that all levels of govern-
ment would have to increase their
support of the "entire enterprise
of education."

In outlining the plans for much
greater flexibility in academic de-
gree timetables, Perkins said that
students who had made up their
I minds on which field of speciali-
zation to pursue could proceed
very quickly-getting both their
bachelor's and master's degrees in
a total of four years and then
going another year or two for
their doctorate.
But undergraduates who are
unsettled on their future career
plans would be allowed to explore
many different academic fields
before committing themselves to
a specific one. They then could
transfer to a more accelerated
(At Yale University, students are
now able to attain both a bache-
lor's and master's degree at the
end of four years of work in the
undergraduate college. This pro-
gram - approved by the faculty
and the Yale Corporation-grants
credit for graduate courses taken
during undergraduate years.)

shortly before Christmas by the
disclosure that city police were in
the midst of a three-month in-

that only an "extremely small
number" of students were affected.

eight Temple University women
students have been penalized for
flunking an exam.
There was nothing unusual- in
this-except that the test was 20
short-answer questions on Pea-
body Hall (the women's dormi-
tory) rules and regulations, it
was conducted by Peabody's
standards council and the pen-
alty for each flunkee was two
months of lost late privileges in-
stead of a low grade.
It was explained that the test
was necessary as the only means
of making the girls learn the
"Temple Coed"-the handbook on
women's rules. "If there were no
punishment for failing the exam,
most girls wouldn't even look at
the book," one standards coun-
cil member said.
