with the problems facing educators
in the institutions of higher learning
today. "The youth of America is in
a dilemma today that must be con-
sidered from two angles," said Presi-
dent Burton. "From the subjective
standpoint, there is not the latent
granite in the young people that char-
acterized those of a generation back.
It seems there is a constant growth
of disrespect. If others do a thing;
they seem to feel it their duty to fol-
low; they are concerned with popular-
ity, with being popular an do not
seem to think truths." Bringing his
charges to college life in a closer re-
lation, President Burton continlued.
'College life is simply a reflection of
the life of a great part of huniasity,
only on the campuses of the univer-
sities actual life is exaggerated. But!
such conditions are not entirely the
fault of the youth."
