STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY
(Purdue Exponent)
The responsibility which the student body should
assume in the governing of a university has always
been a question for much discussion. This year,
several editors of university papers have been dis-
missed from school because of comments contained
in the editorial sections of their papers. At the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin, the inter-fraternity council
decided that it was incapable of controlling the
affairs of the groups represented on it.
At the University of Illinois, student agitation led
to the ruling that students could take cuts at any
time, if they felt that a cut was warranted. Formerly
they .were allowed cuts up to ten per- cent of the
classes in a course and could get excuses for legiti-
mate reasons above that number. Now, the students
find that the instructors take action which was not
possible under the old ruling when too many cuts
are taken.
"Paternalism" is practiced at all universities in
a greater or less degree. Faculty advisers are pro-
vided for all activities, but it is not always because
the faculty wishes to have control of the activities
of the students. Student agencies of enforcement
have proved inadequate.
This is a severe criticism of the American univer-
sity system. Apparently, the universities have failed
in one of their main purposes, the development of
the instinct for leadership among the members of
the student bodies. It is accepted as a fact that a
good education, without the ability to lead one's col--
leagues, is a nearly worthless possession. Although
the leaders of any group may be less gifted in many

Economics Lectures. The other -
day he came to class fortified
with three kinds of chalk; red,
blue, and yellow. All through
the lecture he kept students in-
terested by shifting the chalk
around in different designs and
color schemes. The best touch
came, however, when he drew
a graph on the black board in
patriotic Maize and Blue colors,
to llustrate the economic uses
of girders or something.

cents to fifty cents. This is even
more remarkable in view of the
fact that Play Production still
is conceited enough to believe
that its presentation is worth
seventy-five cents, assuming of
course that any Collegiate pro-
duction is worth either of the
alleged admission prices.

rn ationalizttion
Armaments

ST Saturday the International Peace confer-'
nce meeting in Geneva approved Sir John
n's qualitative disarmament policy calling for
r prohibition or internationalization of arrna-
policies. According to press dispatches, the
Dn of the British foreign minister was well
ved and all that needs be done is to decide
to go about carrying the policy out.
veryone knows that disarmament of some
is an absolute necessity but ways in which
can be carried through are still rather hap-
-d and nebulous. Prohibition of armaments,
>urse, is one way and internationalization,
h calls for balance of armament strength and
ation with some responsible authority, is the
other obvious way.
he prohibition method cannot and will not be
:ive if this means is decided upon, a purely
ely result. In the first place prohibition of
:ing implies a power which can enforce .his
bition and that is somethingthatinterna
I politics does not have. The League of
ins might be called this authority but it is
,an idealistic theory to believe that it is cap-
of carrying out something as vast as prohibi-
>f armaments all over the world. And in the
id place, prohibition of anything is totally
st any doctrine which a nation adopts. Any-
; prohibited by something foreign to a state
lirect incentive to hostility to that thing. A
reason why the prohibition means could not
.rried out is the fact that if one nation defies
>rohibition, the whole system will fall and
mnament will be back at the same stage as ,t
:lay.
he internationalization theory is by far the
logical. By this means each nation can have
wn needs and desires considered and a more
balance of armament can be effected. Arbi-
m will make for a more substantial existence
e policy and should any infractions of the
ment evolve, the whole system will not break.
r John Simon's proposal, if it can go through,
arly something which will make for progress',
:ernational peace. Idealistic as it seems, it is
wild dream and with the proper co-operation
