tIolerant

outi?

IT has been said that youth is the most intolerant
of all ages. We were glad to see the editorial,
-eprinted in yesterday's Daily, from the Seattle
Daily Journal of Commerce, commenting on burns
uffered by a middle-aged business man at a club
nitiation. Had the event taken place during a
raternity initiation, said the Journal, the news
vould have been headlined "College Student Tor-
ured in Initiation," while "sob sisters, sewing
ircles ... would have demanded expulsion of the
o-called perpetrators."
The attitude of the general public is more
Intolerant toward college students than any other
roup of today. Any college event is seized upon,
listorted, and made into an attack upon the whole
ystem of higher education. A recent example,
oming closer to home, was the editorial comment
ipon the Student Council election frauds, the
ditorial in question wondering what sort of citi-
:ens the University of Michigan was turning out.
t neglected, however, to mention that professional
>oliticians often engage in similar practices, al-
hough they may be more adept at accomplishing
heir aims, nor are they as willing to take the
)Iame when discovered. When liquor is found
n fivc fraternity houses on the Michigan campus.
xtras pour forth from the presses, and the public
hakes its head and bemoans the "morals" of the
ollege students. Yet everyday raids in clubs,
estaurants, homes are passed over with no more
han a glance.'
The indictment, then, which college students
ay against their elders is that they are less toler-
nt and more biased towards the students than
owards their fellow citizens. Obviously, the
tudent can not hope to do far better than -the
xam'ple set him. although usually he hopes to
aise the standard to at least a small degree. To
ee his slightest misstep condemned by older peo-
le, who condone similar performances on the part
,f others, is discouraging to say the least.
Perhaps too much is expected of the college
tudent of today. We doubt that. Perhaps his
onduct falls below the level of others. We doubt
hat too. Tle fact remains that his every move
