DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
to Continue in Wartime
President Alexander G. Ruthven,
urging educators to emphasize the
importance of teaching the humani-
ties and pure science, yesterday stated
that the United States must be a
"reservoir of culture" as well as a
"reservoir of fighting men and arma-
In an article "Universities in War-
time", appearing yesterday in the
current issue of "The Nation's
Schools", President Ruthven said that
although curriculum changes are es-
sential to the war effort, we must not
give up cultural studies and the bus-
iness of "forming creative minds,
studying human problems, and pre-
paring citizens to govern themselves
"The colleges and universities are
now rendering their proper service in
the emergency as fully as is any other
type of institution or group of work-
ers," President Ruthven said. Accel-
erating programs, lending staff mem-
bers for special services, adding new
courses of a technical nature and con-
ducting research, are the innovations
However, the article questioned the
success of schools in providing con-
structive leadership and impressing
on citizens their responsibility toward
the war and post-war problems. "The
primary function of educational
agencies in a democracy is strength-
ening human will by knowledge, rea-
son and virtue. In these respects we
are not doing as well as Great Bri-
tain," Dr. Ruthven said.
"Education as distinguished from
technical training may have to be
scrapped for the duration of the war,"

A student opened the door of a

an eight o'clock class in Spanish was
half-over. Wearing tails and white
tie, he doffed his topper, bowed and
peered wearily into the room.

NEW YORK, Jan. 2.-(/P)-Wen-
dell L. Willkie today called for the
formation of a working common
council of the United Nations to
plan war and economic strategy
now and cooperation after victory.
Addressing an opera victory rally
at this afternoon's performance of
the Metropolitan Opera Company,
the Republican candidate for Presi-
dent in 1940 asserted that the United
Nations must be made "a fact and
not a mere euphonious phrase." The
program was broadcast over the Blue
"If history has taught us any-
thing," Willkie said, "it has taught
us that people obtain in a peace only
what they win while they fight.
"What I want to emphasize today
is that planning will do no good un-
less we give our plans reality; that
we will have no United Nations after
the war unless we make the United
Nations nov a fact and not a mere
Willkie declared that today, a year
after the signing of the United Na-
tions pact, "we should face the fact
that if hopeful billions of human
beings are not to be disappointed,
the United Nations must become a
common council, not only for the
winning of the war but for the fu-
ture welfare of mankind."
