nity alone was very rewarding. Sometimes,
just watching and observing the best in
their field is itself as beneficial as jobs that
offer hands-on experience.

Halls of Residence?
In response to "When Houses Are More
Than Homes" (EDUCATION), please rid your
publication of the outdated term "dormi-
tory." It conjures up images of a barracks.
For those of us who have worked hard on
graduate degrees to enter the field of resi-
dence life and continue to work hard to
turn our "halls" into "homes," the pre-
ferred term is residence halls.

Peace Studies
Your article on peace studies asks, "Is it
academically legitimate?" Why do you not
ask the same question about business (the
study of how to make money) or about mili-
tary "science" (the study of how to make
war)? In this day of applied fields, I fail to
see the logic by which NYU's Herbert Lon-
don singles out the study of peace as a
special form of"nonsense" in "masquerade
as a new scholarly discipline." Either the
man has a very warped sense of values or,
like many administrators, he's scurrying
about on his knees for grant money from
government and industry. Would that half
as many were paid to work toward world
peace as toward greed and destruction.
DOUGLAS T. KENRICK, Associate Professor
Arizona State University
Tempe, Ariz.
I must express my surprise and disap-
pointment in the attitudes expressed by
critics who reject the study of peace as a
scholarly discipline. Peace studies seek to
ameliorate and ideally eliminate all forms
of violence in the world, not just the threat
of the arms race but also the daily social,
economic, racial and sexual violence that
exists in our homes and on our streets. Pro-
moting peace studies now is an investment
that hopes to secure a peaceful future.
