Ex-Governor Comstock Urges
Youth To become Alert Citizens
By BARBARA JENSWOLD
"Youth's problem today lies in how
many individual rights should be
given up voluntarily to those who
govern, to assure the best society."
declared former Governor William A.
Comstock at a meeting of the Michi-
gan Party yesterday evening in the
Mr. Comstock continued with'a dis-
cussion of the possibilities of student
government at the University. He
traced the growth of society from.its
fundamental inception as a protec-
tive institutioin for the individual
through its various stages of devel-
Should Strong Survive?
"Today, when the doctrine that on-
ly the strong should survive has come
again to the fore, we must decide
whether the weak'are to be protect-
ed. If we all could bring to practice
in the University the bill of rights
and add to it, on the religious side,
the Ten Commandments, we would
have all we need on whch to base our
society," he said.
Mr.Comstock was a student of the
University 1895-99, and he served
n the Board of Regents 1913-14.
From this experience in these two ca-
pacities and from his later observa-
tions, he said, he has noticed a change
in education policy. "The problem
now is with mass production, in all
fields. In the University there is mass
production of degree recipients; it
has even been extended to the higher
degrees. And with this trend there
has been lost much of the old incen-
tive for individual work-along the
lines of research and expression.
"Individuals have been regimented
into acting on the will of others.
Thus, it isup to them to draw a line
and decide how much of the original
rights they are going to possess and
how much they are going to allow to
be transferred to others."
Mr. Comstock stated that it was
part of the duty of the Michigan
Party and such organizations to
arouse student thought on this issue.
They have been so long deprived of
tudent government since it was out-
lawed from the University some years
ago that they have become lethargic
and submissive, he concluded, and
only concerted action can relieve this
situation, he declared.
