-Associated Press
ASIAN MELEE-Club-swinging South Korean police move in to disperse some one thousand Yonsei
University students during a demonstration in Seoul. This particular student uprising occurred in
November, 1960, when the country was still unstable after the toppling of Syngman Rhee. The
rioters were demanding the release of 56 students arrested after an attack on homes of two Amer-
ican officials of the university.

militant, now is divided internally
and weakened. The Zengakuren
led the violent demonstrations
against ratification of the Japan-
U.S. security treaty that resulted
in the cancellation of President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's planned
visit to Japan in 1960.
Although quiet now in econom-
ically booming, politically stable-
Japan, the students who throng
the streets of Tokyo and other
cities in their high-collared uni-
forms and caps still represent a

Burma Riots
Another scene of student-gov-
ernment trouble has been Burma,

where the military government
in July, 1962, quelled student riot-
ing in an incident in which 16
youths died.
The bloodshed stemmed from
student protests against what they
called repressive dormitory rules
that included an 8 p.m. curfew.
Last December it was reported
that an unrelenting student cam-
paign or agitation against the
government still was going on. In
May the military regime an-
nounced a decree bringing all pri-
vate education in Burma, except
religious schools, under govern-
ment controls.
Company Union
Some Asian governments have

attempted to meet the threat of
possible student challengers by
sponsoring student movements
they can control.
One example is Indonesia, where
students occasionally demonstrate
against something or someone the
government is against, but they
carefully follow guidelines laid
down under President Sukarno's
so-called guided democracy.
Education is revered in Asia and
students are respected. The Viet-
namese government has made
plain it knows this. An official in
Saigon acknowledged it openly,
saying "the students could develop

Suicide Rate
Rises Ac-utely
The suicide or attempted sui-
cide rate in the emergency room
of the University Hospital in-
creased 89 per cent between 1957
and 1962, Drs. Lynn W. Blunt' and
Richard J. Levy reported in -a re-
cent University Medical Bulletin
The study also showed that the
total number of patients seeking
emergency treatment increased
only 23 per cent.
Of the 133 cases analyzed from.
the two comparative years, it was,
found that suicide attempts were
most common among white Prot-
estants and that half the victims
were married. Many were house-
wives, students or unemployed.
Only nine per cent of the at-
tempts were successful. These pa-
tients were either dead on arrival
or died soon after reaching the
hospital. The attempts usually in-
volved overdoses of medicines or
self-inflicted wounds, the doctors
More than 33 per cent of these
patients had a history of psychia-
tric trouble and nearly 20 per cent
were under psychiatric treatment.
These suicide attempts "pre-
sent a complex and yet: unmet
challenge to the medical profes-
sion," the report stated. "Treat-
ment does not offer a guarantee
against suicide attempts,", accord-
ing to University physicians.
"Some patients will be overwhelm-,
ed by problems in spite of profes-
sional assistance."

Hatcher Journeys to Kent State
To Deliver Graduation Speech

Speaking at the August com-
mencement exercises of Kent
State University in Ohio,. Univer-
sity President Harlan H. Hatcher
told the graduates that "today is
not an end but a beginning-and
a college education is now more
of a beginning than ever before."
President Hatcher contrasted the
necessity of further professional
training in today's world to the
day's when students "felt that
they were prepared for life when
they graduated from college with
a B.A. degree," as well as to the
generation of students before them
who- "felt themselves equally for-
tunate to have had a high school
"How quickly epoch-making ad-
vances are made and then taken
for granted;" President Hatcher
remarked, citing this aspect of
progress as "one of the most sig-
nificant and dramatic facts about
this period."
Vast Knowledge
President Hatcher went on to
say that "human / knowledge is
already vast and is rapidly grow-
ing. It must be translated into
human skills and understanding

out the most careful and exacting
training, you are unprepared to
cope. with it, or to advance it fur-
"Much of the unrest of the
world today is rooted in denials
and in lack of.opportunity for the
oncoming generation as well as the
vanishing hopes of the older to be
a vital, participating part -of this
President Hatcher suggested
that the same high standards re-
quired of today's scientists be in-
troduced as well into political pro-
cedures and social understandings,
saying, "As we engage.- in . the
enormously ekpensive project of
exploration of outer space, we
must, redouble our energy to at-
tack all of the unfinished business
which still remains so urgently
about us here on earth."
Talent Training
President Hatcher emphasized-
that their primary responsibility Is
"to train your talents to the fullest
possible capacity and then use
them for all -they are worth."
In addressing the graduates,
President Hatcher returned to his
