THE QUESTION: As far as you
know, what is the most discussed
topic on your campus?
THE PLACE: New York City.
THE ANSWERS: Edmund Nar-
dozza, University of Cornell, Ithaca,
New York: "Co-eds, women, maidens,
damsels. What else is there to talk
about? The finer things? Yes, some-
what; but not with the vigor nor
prolixity given to the co-eds. If you
run into other frank students, you'll
receive the same answer."
Julius Hollander, George Washing-
ton University, Washington, D. C.:
"George Washington is primarily a
medical school, and the majority of
w t. ^ rr T' -t- .- TVT-rw rT I
its students are candidates for its
medical courses. Naturally, M.D.'s
and medicine figure more often in
conversation than other subjects."
Milton Small, University of Mary-
land, College Park: "Militarism.
R.O.T.C. is compulsory at Maryland,
and the student body, almost to a
man, takes issue against "the martial
spirit." If called upon to voice my
opinion of the "makes men" policy,
I would reply-nuts!"
Jerome Hollander, Columbia Uni-
versity, New York City: "From the
Spectator, radical political theories
and talk seem to be the thing at Co-
lumbia. That is not so. It is but the
work of a few factions. Campus poli-
tics, however, is the reigning noise
right now, what with class elections
Alan Rappeport, University of
Pennsylvania, Philadelphia: "I doubt
if any one topic occupies more dis-
cussion than the others. In the War-
ton School, where I am enrolled, bus-
iness probably comes nearest to the
title. Generally, baseball is more
talked about at this time."
