Academic VIP's
As a recent Emory student in several
classes in which former President Carter
was a guest lecturer, I feel qualified to an-
swer NEWSWEEK ON CAMPUS'S titular ques-
tion, "Are all those Very Important Profes-
sors reallyearningtheir keep?" (September
1987 cover story, EDUCATION). There are
many among the faculty and students at
Emory who disagree with President Car-
ter's political views, but no one of integrity
can deny that he is a talented and conscien-
tious teacher who is an invaluable asset.

Your comments about Ambassador
Kirkpatrick were unfair, and the quotes
you chose did not accurately reflect the
reputation Mrs. Kirkpatrick enjoys on
campus or the admiration that this distin-
guished diplomat commands.

Women's Hockey
Kudos! Not only have you written an
outstanding article on field hockey, but

you've captured the spirit that we fanatics
feel for our sport (SPORTS). Also, you had
the insight to recognize that lack of atten-
dance at college games is attributable to
cultural differences between our country
and others.

Idealism or Job Training?
I applaud John Burkman Jr.'s percep-
tive and persuasive assessment of univer-
sity education in America (MY TURN). It is
criminal that enhancing one's resum6 has
become more important than learning
how countries were shaped.

As a theater major on an "idyllic" cam-
pus, I take exception to Burkman's article.
Silly as it may sound, we do sit on the quad
and have discussions that have nothing to
do with acquiring r6sum6 credits.

The Fake ID Trade
"A Thriving Trade in Fake ID's" (coL-
LEGE LIFE) is a fine article but one that
is incomplete. Fake ID's are the result
of a larger and more troublesome issue,
that of the 21-year-old drinking age. The
ramifications of this issue need to be ad-
dressed. In fact, this law encourages disre-
spect of legal authority and promotes closet
alcoholism.
PHIL BRACH, Student Body President
Villanova University
Villanova, Pa.
The change in the drinking age-an in-
sult to students' rights-was a cowardly
concession by Congress to Ronald Reagan's
Moral Majority friends. As Jim Bakker has
shown, "immorality" is not confined to
those under 21.

I was in the business of making
fake ID's for two years. I made thou-
sands of dollars and never dreamed that
I'd get caught, but I did. It cost me
twice as much as I made, in legal fees, to

An education for those who can't look the other way.
