Seventy-One Years of Editorial Freedom


Size, Nature Set
Operation of OSA's
The size and nature of a college are determining factors in oper-
ating an office of student affairs, three student personnel adminis-
trators indicated this weekend.
The trio-all participants in the "Aims of Education" conference
sponsored by the United States National Student Association-repre-
sented a small, denominational college, an urban commuter institution,
and a cosmopolitan, -highly selected university.
Brother Mark explained. that St. Mary's, with 700 resident men,
is experiencing "growing pains" in developing an effective relation-
ship with the students outside the classroom.
* Give More Room
A member of the Christian Brothers order, which undertook
responsibility for the Winona, Minn. college recently, Brother Mark
did see a general tendency to give the men "more room" for respon-
sible action.
"The administration encourages pressure by the students to get
things changed," the assistant dean of men said, pointing to a stu-
dent government proposal, now under consideration, which would set
up questionnaires for course evaluations.,
The University of Chicago, though ,scredited- with the greatest
freedom of student opinion, delegates very few powers to students,
Ruth O. McCarn, a retired member of the student affairs office there,
Mrs. McCarn-who ended a long association with Chicago this
June-said the student government had nothing to say about matters
of discipline or curriculum changes.
"The university is not indifferent to student nonclassroom needs,
but deliberately states that 'We think this is our business'."
Since more than half of Chicago's 6,000 students have their
bachelor's degree, the accent on campus is strongly focused on study.
"The fundamental characteristic about our students is that they come
to learn," Mrs. McCarn said.,
Select Faculty
To integrate the nonacademic affairs with the rest of the uni-
versity, members of the student affairs office are selected from the
regular faculty.
Basic policies of Roosevelt University are set up by the faculty
senate and implemented by a student-faculty Student Activities Board.
A statement of..general policy and the names of the officers are all
that are necessary for a group to gain recognition as a student or-
Judicial violations are usually restricted to conduct with the one
large building which is the single university structure. "The rules are
permissively administrated," George Watson, dean of students, said.

is non-violence,". said David McReynolds at the Voice Forum last
McReynolds, executive secretary of the War Resistors League, is
a contributor to "Progressive" and "Liberation" 'Magazines.
"We have finally reached that point where we can annihilate our
enemy--and this causes much joy," McReynolds stated.

dehumanizes people. "It was once possible to tangibly hate your ene-

BERLIN (MP)-Hundreds of angry
West Berliners battled with West
German police restraining them
from actions against the East
German Red regime last night
along the hated Communist wall.
A battle involving tear gas and
water cannon then developed be-
tween East and West police.
During the intramural West
German fracas, East German bor-
der guards turned water cannon
and teargas on the demonstra-
tors, most of whom were. young-
Police FightBack
West police retaliated by hurling
some 200 tear gas grenades at the
The West police, after hurling
tear gas grenades at the Com-
munists, hustled the crowd of
youngsters back to safety.
The incidents came when an of-
ficially approved West Berlin pro-
test march boiled over. Police es-
timated some 20,000 people took
part in a torchlight procession to
a memorial to German unity, a
safe distance from the wall.
Form Columns
But afterwards thousands broke
away, shouting: "To the wall,"
and formed up in newhcolumns
heading for the Brandenburg Gate.
West police reinforcements were
called out and managed to divert
most of them to side streets. They
had to use nightsticks to drive
about 1,000 - mostly students-
from the approach to the gate.
Another determined group of
about 400 managed to reach the
wall at Wilhelmstrasse, where the
tear gas battle followed.

Galvin made his comments to a

days after Maj. Gen. William H.

He briefly stated Kahn's "Coun-

Sees Fallacy
McReynolds sees a fallacy in
Kahn's theory in that "society is
a delicate organism; you can't
take out one third of the people
and then put it back together
again." For example, the first
thing that happens after a hur-
ricane or floods have devastated
an area is systematic looting. In
many cases, it is necessary to call

Dual Objectives
tions to its permanent foundations as well as solutions to contem-

The extremes of quality and quantity, general and vocational
training, and "terminal" and "university" education are prime areas
for questioning, the group's reporter, Elizabeth McCue of the College
of St. Elizabeth, said.
The discussions about "Contemporary Education in America"
echoed Prof. Kaufman's call for a university which would both "insure
that society's vital needs are met capably and responsibly and make
sure that no individual leaves it without having a thoroughly well-
developed idea of what it is to lead the examined life."
Reality Gap
There is likely to be a gap between the ideal and the real, and
one of the aims of education, Green said, should be to make the in-
dividual "want to narrow that gap."


Provision for free tuition to fac-
ulty children or benefits for edu-
cating them at other institutions
is a fringe benefit which is im-
portant in faculty , competition
among institutions, Niehuss says.
A number of private universities
such as Princeton and Stanford
offer this benefit to their faculty.
"The University has discussed
this. Some faculty members are
anxious to have it; but others are
critical of paying benefits on the
basis of fertility," he explains.

versity attempted to affiliate with

Conference Discusses Educationl's

Higher education has a dual objective: to provide technical train-
ing for individuals who will fill certain 'social slots' in society and
to advance the growth of the individual's intellectual capacities.,
This was the general consensus reached by participants in the
'Aims of Education' conference sponsored by the United States Na-
tional Student Association this weekend. Undergraduate and gradu-
ate students, faculty members and administrators from 53 different
American colleges, heard speeches, listened to panels and spent long
hours in discussion at Wingspread, a sprawling Racine, Wisconsin
home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
Spurred on by Prof. Peter Rempel's opening address which urged
that asking questions was important than finding answers to abol-
ish the queries, the participants appeared more concerned with pos-
ing problems than forcing compromise agreements in the four dis-

former USNSA national officer now on the economics faculty at
Yale University, pointed to a need for universities "to make the
autonomous decision be relevant."
Related Autonomy
The institutions of higher education must be allowed to operate
on their own, but they should consider themselves in relation to the
rest of society, he said.
Ideally, the university should present everything of intellectual
importance, his group felt. Realizing a need to establish priorities on
what can be taught in any one institution, the group saw the "autono-
mous decision to be relevant" as having importance in making such
decisions on curriculum.
The university has a pragmatic function to continue itself and
replenish the state as well as striving to accustom its students "to
the idea of thinking," a second discussion group, led by Neil Johnston,
