Galbraith Discusses Colleges
In Public and Foreign Roles





Universities and colleges will be
an increasingly powerful force in
public life, especially in matters of
foreign policy said ?rof. John
Kenneth Galbraith of the eco-
nomics department of Harvard
University here Saturday.
Speaking at the spring Com-
mencement, Galbraith said that
recent experience with United
States policy on Viet Nam has
demonstrated the growing power'
and participation of the university
community in foreign policy.
"The chance, last year, of a
concensus in support of our policy
in Southeast Asia was lost when
the universities could not be per-
suaded. The reaction in Congress
University participation will not
be neutral. he said, and the only
question remaining is how they
will participate. "I venture to
think that what the country be-
lieves about a man or a policy is
likely to be what the universities,
believed a few months ago."
Galbraith said university polit-
ical concern is not a passing phase

like golfish swallowing as much of
Washington would probably like
to hopefully think.
This is much too optimistic on
the part of the politicans, he said.
"The question affecting peaceful
survival or conflict have a natural
interest for a young community of
better than average intelligence.
Additionally the draft arouses a
measure of interest in foreign
policy even among the more
evangelically apathetic."
The effect of the new university
participation, Galbraith explained,
is to create for foreign policy
"what the political scientists call
a client group." Farmers tradi-
tionally keep an eye on the Agri-
culture Department and labor un-
ions observe the work of the Na-
tional Labor Relations Board.
By contrast, he said, no great
citizen group has ever made the
foreign policy establishment an-
swerable to it. As a result, the
State Department, the Pentagon,
and other foreign policy agencies
"have had unparalleled freedom
from organized pressure by or-
ganized information," and they

have developed the habit of "ex-
pecting the public to accept the
official truth on a very large
range of matters."
'Client Group'
The rise of the academic com-
munity as a "client group" on
foreign policy is changing all this,
Galbraith continued. "University
communities mistrust force, are
deeply committed to collective ac-
tion and the rule of law, and have
been taught to be skeptical of
official truth."
At all these points, he said, I VeSig RilR
there is conflict with official hab- isrestsgaticg
its or tendencies. "The predictable
consequence will be a sharp de-
bate on foreign policy between the
universities and the government
in the months and years ahead. I
do not think this is a bad thing." Anti-Draft Movement

department has won the Pulitzer Prize in music for his composi-
tion "Variation for Orchestra."
The music prize was awarded Monday for the first time since
Bassett's work was first performed in the United States by
Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra on Oct. 22, 1965
in Philadelphia.
Bassett said he considers the variations "one of the most
deeply motivated musical statements I have made."

College of Education has passed a resolution expressing opposi-
tion to the use of national competitive examinations and grade-
point averages to determine Selective Service draft deferment.
"We reject as invalid the premise that tests or grades can
predict the future contribution that a student will make to so-
society. We reject as unjust the premise that students who are
competent but not outstanding are less deserving of continuing
their education without interruptions than their classmates," the
adopted resolution said.
M * '
spelled out some difficulties in maintaining high student morale
at the University to the Senate Advisory Committee on University
Affairs recently.
Some of his points were:
* Entering students often react negatively to the contradic-
tion between the high ethical ideal and scholastic ideal that we
publicize and the fact of indifferent or unethical treatment that
they receive from faculty and administration.
* Many students view their admission to the University as
a terminal reward for proven achievement in public or prepara-
tory schools. The new burden placed on them here scholastically
encourages criticism--and our students are sufficiently ingenious
and articulate to criticize effectively.
* Lack of faculty concern for students provokes additional
resentment, especially when it leads, as the student sometimes
believes, to a trap where we offer him either immature teaching
fellows or incompetent and fossilized professors.
* The accelerating transfer of faculty allegiance from the
Univeristy to a professional discipline may inspire proportionate
student alienation from the institution. Instead of a community
of scholars, the Universty becomes a comfort station for com-
muters destined for their particular professional firmament via
the appropriate bureau or foundation. Bright students draw
accurate conclusions from this and view the University as a part
of embarkation rather than the brief, best finishing school of the

A check for that amount was presented to University Presi-
dent Harlan Hatcher during the annual alumni luncheon last
weekend held in conjunction with the 122nd University Com-
Now in its 13th year, the fund has received more than $6172
million since 1953 from more than 200,000 donors.
More than 200 different projects are supported by the fund
including faculty awards, student scholarships, student aid, the
president's fund and alumni activities.

Secondary Schools has continued "for the time being" its accredi-
tation of St. John's University in New York City, where at least
60 faculty members have been on strike since January to protest
the dismissal of 21 colleagues.
However, the commission said that the university had made
"grevious errors" and that it would "not hesitate to revoke the
accreditation" at a future date.
The striking teachers have said that the 21 were dismissed
because they sought a greater voice in the Catholic university's
affairs. The major reason given by the university for the dis-
missals was "unprofessional conduct."

Mrs. Wallace Wins in Alabama

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. UP)- - Mrs.
George C. Wallace, 39, whose gov-
ernor-husband tapped her to suc-
ceed him when the law kept him
from running, won yesterday's
Democratic primary so soundly
that she avoided a runoff.
Despite a massive outpouring of
Negro votes aimed at stopping a
Wallace victory, Mrs. Wallace led
the 10-man gubernatorial field al-
most from the start of the vote
As the returns poured in from
around the state, her lead mount-
ed. In county after county-even
where Wallace was weakest four
years ago-she led.
In the Black Belt-the heart of
the Negro voting strength-three

Negro candidates for sheriff led
their white opponents. No returnt
were in for four other Negro-white
sheriff's races in the Black Belt.
So there was exultation in the
air for both ardent segregation-
ists and integrationists. For the
smashing Wallace victory, in the
case of the former; for the pros-
pect of Negro sheriff nominees in
the latter.
Unofficial returns from 1,319 of
the state's 3,654 boxes gave: For
governor: Mrs. Wallace 162,694;
Atty. Gen. Richmond Flowers 47,-
444; former Congressman Carl El-

The new projects in the literary
college include programs of re-
search and training in compara-
tive economics involving the econ-
omies of the Soviet Union, China,
Eastern and Western Europe and
the United States, and an inter-
disciplinary study of comparative
processes of national development.
A new study of international or-
ganization will be begun, along
with a program in comparative
historical studies.
The political science department
will extend its study of party and
representation systems in political
integration and development, and
