BOULDER-The University of
Colorado Student Senate recently
passed a resolution which urged
that "The university no longer
discriminate on the basis of sex
or age in any social regulations
applyingto individuals who have
reached the age of 21."
It was announced that the de-
cision would be appealed to the
student Supreme Court. If it is
upheld by the court and the dean
of students, it would void portions
of the social code which place
limitations on students up to the
age of 23.
The purpose of the resolution is
to test the actual power of the

... Persian poetry

Note Quality
Of Literature
"Persia possesses poetic litera-
ture that makes aping of foreign
poetry folly, and indeed Persian
poetry is there for foreigners to
imitate," Peter Avery, chairman
of the Persian department at
Kings College, Cambridge Univer-
sity, said Monday, in a lecture on
"Modern Persian Literature."
"The excellence of early Per-
sian poetry is partly responsible
for the lack of modern poetic
development," Avery said. "The
poets tend to use traditional forms
although their content is mod-
Prosaic Propaganda
"The use of Persian literature
for prosaic propaganda which did
not lend itself to poetry was re-
sponsible for the revival of Per-
sian prose."
"Since their development of
prose literature, the modern Per-
sian writers have been the artic-
ulators J1 social distress. Modern
Persian prose is marked by hard
realism," Avery said.
The literature originated to
bring color to people starved for
color in a barren land. When it
became essential to utilize the lan-
guage in texts, newspapers and
government communications the
language was made brief and un-
ambiguous to serve a written not
spoken purpose. This economy of
words is characteristic of mod-
ern Persianliterature and speech,
he explained.
Short Story
The modern author prefers the
short story or novelette which is
actually a perpetuation of an old
form of literature.
"Persian literature has always
been used to moralize and paint
adventures. The change from early
to modern literature is merely
one from oral to written litera-
Unpublicized elements of popu-
lation, chiefly the life of the poor,
provide subjects for modern Per-
sian writers. The ordinary people
are the most truly Persian sub-
ject matter. The literature is
written to preserve the entity of
"Persian literature today suf-
fers from the present political un-
certainty in Iran," Avery explain-
ed. "The young writers don't feel
free, therefore, their creative gen-
ius lies dormant."
In the past decade Iran has gone
through a period of instability.
Since the seizure of the Anglo-
Iranian oil facilities in 1951, the
country has known no internal

Vaughn Calls YD's Useful
For Training in Polities

The Young Democrats provide
an opportunity for participation
in good government and a train-
ing ground for political action,
Jackie Vaughn, state president of
the Michigan Young Democrats,
said at a speech to the YD's Wed-
nesday night.
Vaughn said that through the
organization, "one learns about
the art of leadership and the art
of politics." It provides "ways and
means of getting experience which
culminates in active political par-
Drawing from his experience in
running for a position as con-con
representative, Vaughn listed some
of the problems facing candidates
for political offices. Ethnic groups
influence the vote in that they
support "their own candidate first
and foremost," Vaughn said. "The
art of running for public office is
learning to converse with various
History Beneficial
He found it beneficial for can-
didates to learn the history, back-
ground and language of different
groups and cited Rockefeller's pro-
ficiency in Spanish as an example.
Center Announces
Deadline for Tour
Today is the deadline for reg-
istration for the International
Center's annual Washington-New
York tour to be held Dec. 26-Jan.
2. Foreign students interested in
this program should contact Har-
riet Cady of the center and, if
registering, bring $10 for a depos-

Learning to accept open criti-
cism and learning how to respond
at news conferences are also prob-
lems in running for political of-
fice, Vaughn said.
In regard to racial discrimina-
tion, Vaughn said, "Michigan is
unique in that it is a pioneer in
terms of integration in public of-
fice." He said it is the only state
which "exposed Negroes to state
elections and has three times
elected them."
State Politics
Discussing state politics, Vaughn
attributed Jerome Cavanaugh's
election to the power of the eth-
nic group vote, particularly the
Catholic and Negro vote. Also, he
said, the outcome was a result of
a general dissatisfaction in the
status quo, and "the rank and file
labor, in spite of the Wayne Coun-
ty AFL-CIO's endorsement of in-
cumbent Mayor Louis Miriani,
supported Cavanaugh. I am quite
sure labor voted 85 per cent for
In viewing the next election for
governor of Michigan, Vaughn ad-
mitted, "We have more work to
do because of the caliber of the
candidate, George Romney."
The Democrats, however, do
have a majority of Wayne County
votes, so in order to carry Wayne
County, Romney must convince
the voters that he is just as left
as Swainson, Vaughn concluded.
"As young people, we are in-
clined to break norms and tradi-
tions and this should be encour-
aged," Vaughn added in viewing
youth today.
In addition to his state post,
Vaughn has served as chairman of
the Michigan delegation.
