Bermudas, Slacks:
Role Reversal?

Gargoyle Try Squelched
By Publications Board

IE GARGOYLE, ITS voice enfeebled by a
near death sentence last year, has had what
ears to be its last outcry, deftly muted by
Board in Control of Studeht Publications.

most unkindest remark of all, "humor-
3E BOARD AND the magazine's writers and
editors have opposing views on the quality
he production. Whether or not it qualifies
a good humor magazine is but a question
aste. The Board, which has the power to
tinue the nonexistence of Garg, did not
it and so it won't reappear.


The Board has failed, however, to state
whether or' not any of the previous Gargs,
published under its control, have met the
standards of good humor magazines. The
Board has not indicated to the magazine's
compilers precisely what they did not like
about it; the criteria used to assess the maga-
zine are left unnoted.
THESE ARE SIDE issues to the argument,
however. The University does not have a
humor magazine. A group of students desire
to have one to such a degree that they have
banded together and, with faculty advice, pro-
duced a mock issue. The quality of the maga-
zine is not a determination the Board should
make as long as the proposed copy and pic-
tures stand within legal limits of libel and
The seriousness of the students involved
cannot be questioned when one examines the
: hours of thought and work that have gone
into their efforts and their character and
purpose displayed in meetings with Board
members for nearly a year.
These people should be allowed to publish
the Garg at whatever level of quality they
can produce it. Campus criticism and accepti-
bility of the magazine will determine its suc-
cess or failure.
THE BOARD HAS had a remarkably fine re-
cord of preserving editorial freedom for
The Daily; it may not like what appears in
the newspaper's pages, but it has not question-
ed the right to have such matter printed. It
has been the editor's responsibility to main-
tain a level of quality in his publication, not
the Board's.
Freedom from censorship and freedom for
expresion are as necessary for a humor maga-
zine as they are for any publication, especially
when that publication operates with the con-
text of University' ideals The Garg must
operate as a free agent if it is to educate its
staff,. its subscribers and aid the University
to improve itself.
IWITHITS MONOPOLY on publication, the
Board has an added responsibility to re-
establish Garg if a group is willing to edit and
can demonstrate a staff structure which allows
for perpetuity.
The grounds on which the Board cancelled
the Garg for this year, a lack of qualified ap-
plicants for the editorships and an alarming
lack of staff continuity, may be a valid one.
The justification for hindering publication
next year, a subjective criticism of its quality,
is most definitely not.

The Vote O o

To the Editor:
PROM THE MANY and varied
discussion now taking place, it
is obvious that there has been a
change in feminine attire on the.
University campus. The casual ob-
server has noticed this change in
public gathering places, such as
the libraries or restaurants; in the
residence halls; and in the class-
rooms. This trend has had its
effect in that it has brought com-
ments from non-University, Ann
Arbor residents; prospective stu-
dents visiting the campus; parents
and friends of present students;
and official guests of the Uni-
But the important thing is the
effect upon campus attitudes and
behavior, obvious to the students
themselves. Problems concerning
campus standards of dress can
be solved only by a sincere effort
of the women students. Consider-
ation must be given to the idea
that dress and grooming is impor-
tant in maintaining identity as
women. Dress, therefore, must be
considered as one means to look-
ing and acting like a woman. Be-
cause women set social standards
for both men and women, re-
sponsibility in this area must be
not effectively create a womanly
appearance. Behavior patterns in
bermudas and slacks are different.,
This is the reason they are con-
sidered to be sportswear. They
fiilitate running, climbing and
general relaxation (generally In
a slumped, awkward position).
There is a certain amount of dig-
nity and composure, along with
the respect that women should
command, that is lost by wearing
them. Obviously, sportswear has
its place-in a picnic area or on
the beach. Obvious, too, is the
fact that femininity is not synony-
mous with the expensive of the
"glamorous." But women should
prefer todlook like women-in
dresses and skirts.'
A woman that looks and acts
like a woman flatters men her
own age and displays respect for
men that are older than she. For
most dates, slacks and bermudas
are an insult to escorts. Appearing
in the classroom, a suposedly for-
mal situation, in sportswear is
certainly not a compliment to the
professor. Well-grooomed women
can set the tenor of a social situa-
tion. All of us have noticed tha
difference in atmosphere in a resi-
dence hall dining room on a Sa-
turday, when everyone is wearing
slacks and pincurls, and at Sun-
day dinner when the women are
dressed in heels and dresses. There
is a difference in everything from
volume of noise to general friend-
* .9 *
BOTH MEN AND women will
respond to the effort that a girl
puts into her grooming and ap-
pearance. I am not suggesting
that women students attempt to
wear heels at all times, but an
interesting experiment is to try
wearing heels for one day of
classes. A student will find her-
self being complimented, having
doors opened for her-in general,
she will be treated like a woman.
We must face the fact, and en-
joy it-we are going to live the
rest of our lives as women. Most
of those who marry will marry

men in professional fields. Being
feminine displays respect for their
status as well as one's own. Fur-
thermore, a woman's behavior I
important to the maintenance
and advancement of her husband's
career. It is not uncommon for
employers to consider the qualifi-
cations of a wife as important as
those of her husband. Career wo-
men, too, must be responsible in
this area. There are recruiters
from all over the country inter-
viewing potential employees that
may be among our student body.
As standards relax, they will look
elsewhere for well-groomed. self-
possessed men and women. The
college woman is most likely to
be found working In a professional
world where the maximum Stan-
dards of grooming and appearance
will be demanded from her.
than a problem of what is "eas-
test" or "most comfortable" In
volved in present conflicts over
standards of dress. There is a
more basic consideration which
eachwoman on this campus must
face: is there not more to gain by
accepting the role of a wonan!

mained deceived in the "Circle
of Deception" was the, director,
who thought he could tack a face-
tious ending on a dramatic story
and thereby satisfy the sentimen-

most completely ruined the movie.
After getting the viewer' to ad-

sending this man through his tra-

the rug with ten ridiculous se-

Almost as big a mistake was the
suicide attempt which should have
been the most dramatic moment

nderstatement as he did in the
air raid scene. It had impact with-
out blinking lights, and only a
little room shaking. The bomb

growing fear on their faces were
enough. Suggestion that evokes
either sympathy or empathy. Is
better than any explanation that
leaves one embarrassed by its
naive directness.

tECENTLY, IN A discussion with a Union
committee chairman, the question of how
e Union President ought to vote as a mem-
r of SGC was considered. The committee
iairman noted that "The Union President

However, the Presidents of the Union and

i SGC, it would seem, would be to represent
e best interests of the entire student body.
And anyone might hope that these interests

spective organizations.

Student Movement Strikes Again

'HE "STUDENT MOVMENT" has struck
Wayne State University has fallen to the
mplexly interconnected monster that is
reading across the country. The Wayne
udent Party has broken in two.
About twenty students, dominated, by na-
:nal "student movement" leaders, their philo-
phy and their pawns, have started a new
impus political party, the Liberal Student
rty, to-oppose the unadulterated radicalism
'the parent Student Party.

be called "the new students." They are
dicated to "liberalism," although most of

These two dozen supply nice essays on what

tentioned. Some of them even know what

blies, it can be railroaded into almost any-
thing {by a well-disciplined organization.
It is here that you Ewill find many of the
documents of the new religion published. It
is then the task of 3 these leaders to see that
they are allowed to interpret the documents-
to point out what they mean in terms of action.
These two dozen or so, some of whom are
actually still students, are the high priests of
the action cult.
THE WSU STUDENT Party was relatively
harmless. It was radical and dedicated to
the spectacular for the sake of exhibitionism.
It repeatedly threatened such useless demon-
strations as picketing of the,,VSU adminis-
tration building.
The members of the Liberal Party, who left
the parent group in disgust, are intelligent and
coherent; the Student Party members are not.
The Liberals realize that compromise and
cooperation with the administration is neces-
sary for effectiveness: the Student Party mem-
bers are committed-if only to the radical and
spectacular. They do not compromise.
T ESTUDENT PARTY has a constitution,
but its members phy it' little heed. It speaks
nicely of such concerns as academic freedom
and the rights of students, but the members
don't worry about these issues-they want to
picket the administration over actions that
displease them.
The Liberal Party also has a constitution. It
is modeled on NSA suggestions. In fact, it
includes, word for word, clauses concerning
"the use of proper channels" and "cooperation
with the administration" that are suggested
by NSA. And not only this, but the members
seem to believe in these methods--they realize-
that they are the only effective methods.
OF COURSE, THE Student Party is ineffec-
tual, if and when it ever acts-spectacular
racicalism doesn't seem likely to affect Ameri-
can university administrators.
The new party was recognized almost im-
mediately after its formation. Its hard-corer
members are all activists; they are ecquainted
with the details of student organization reg-
ulations and with the administration.

separate but parallel and simi-
lar and historical events took place
last week., One was the refusal of
the Commonwealth nations to
condone the racial policy of apart-
heid in order to keep the Union
of South Africa in the Common-
wealth. The other was the vote of
the United States, differing openly
with its NATO allies, for an in-
quiry by the UN into the Portu-
guese colonial policy in Angola.
In both cases the decision was
a very hard one to take-whether
to risk the unity of the Common-
wealth, whether to risk the unity
of NATO, on a question of prin-
ciple? In both cases there was the
same decision-by the eight na-
tions that if the Commonwealth
was to be preserved, it could not
condone apartheid, by the United
States that NATO and even the
UN itself would be gravely jeopar-
lized if the NATO nations align-
ed themselves in support of colon-
THERE ARE SOME who think
that the United States could have
and should have, avoided the deci-
sion. It could have abstained, that
is itcould have declined to vote,
as it did under the Eisenhower
administration last December. But
could the United States have done
that now? Is abstention, a refusal
to vote in order to evade a hard
issue, a workable policy for a
great power which holds the place
we hold in the leadership of the
non-Communist world?
The Eisenhower abstention of
last December could at least be
justified as a stop gap measure in
the closing days of an Administra-
tion. The new Kennedy' adminis-
tration could not take refuge in
the evasion of an issue which in-
volves the destiny of Africa and
Asia and affects profundly the
peace of the world.
When the issue is posed nakedly
as it is in Angola, where it is the
policy of the colonial power not
to prepare the colony for inde-
pendence, how could the United
States refuse 'to declare itself?
Had we done that, we would by
our abstention have abdicated our
influence. For had we abstained,
we would have identified NATO
with colonialism, and the Soviet
Union would have stood out as
the only great power in the white
man's world which took the other
side. What is more, we would have
supported Portuguese colonialism
not boldly by voting against the
resolution but timidly and apolo-
getically by refusing to vote at all,
What an "image" that would
have been of the "leadership" of
the "free world!"
raised as to whether this Ameri-
can vote means that the develop-
ment of Africa has now taken
priority over the consolidation and
stabilization of Europe. It is an
understandable question, and un-
doubtedly there is a 'certain dif-
ference of emphasis between those
who are preoccupied with Euro-
pean affairs and those who are
preoccupied with African affairs.
But the truth is that out con-

The unity of the West is gravely
