College Students Defended By
Prof. Willis, R oosevelt Adviser

According to an interview appear-
ing in the Ohio State Lantern the
long-criticized college student, for
years buffeted by vitriolic gusts of
comment from the Carnegie Founda-
tions, Edna Ferbers, and W.C.T.U.'s,
has at last received a pat on the
There is no longer need for col-
legians to sneak blushingly back to
the home town in the clutches of an
inferiority complex, for the compli-
ment was delivered by none other'
than H. Parker Willis, adviser to
President Roosevelt, Congress, and
other bodies ofslike importance.
The Columbia government effi-
ciency expert and one-time editor,,
stopped viewing "with alarm" the
present "economic crisis" long enough
to evaluate the college men and
women of today.
Shaking his head, Professor Willis
said in reply to the perennial charges
of football mania and disinterest of
students in vital questions, "Although
he sometimes persists in voting for
the best-looking man, the college stu-
dent of today is singularly catholic in
all his viewpoints, will look at all
sides, and usually refrains from sec-
tarian opinion. He is far ahead of
the average individual
"Until 'he 'is torn down by the
school of hard knocks, the student
will remain camped on the left wing,"

Professor Willis continued. He went
on to explain that such a condition
was a healthy one, since the liberal
views of youth serve as a balance to
the conservative and reactionary
stand of old age.
Until he begins to speak, Professor
Willis scarcely looks the part of one
of the more important members of
the "brain trust." His words flow
gently, but, tinged with mild sarcasm,
they strike swiftly and accurately to
the heart of his material.
"I have found the college student
cognizant, curious, and far more in-
terested in economic trends than is
generally supposed. Especially in the
past year have unprecedented events
stimulated him to be smart, concen-
trate his knowledge and test theor-
ies," he concluded.
