Schooling Problem

HE GRIM eductional outlook for the
,nation's children should. arouse its par-.
.ts from their lethargy.
Wirgtized teachers, rebelling at starvation
alaries, struck schools in 11 more cities
inue the Ifrst of the -year. The pitifully in-
de uate wages of hiren and women in the
rofession are forcing teachersto work part-
frie as bartenders, riveters, elevator oper-
ors, automechanics and waitresses to sup-
lefient their earnings. In a recent sur-
ey, it was disclosed that 70 per cent of New
ork City's male teachers are forced to
ake outside employment. This is the in-
entive to teach at a time when estimates
how we are "ehIying" our most acute
eacher shortage, apt to get worse instead of
etter. .

I remember talking to one young Conser-
tive in an ante-chamber of the House
f Commons last week, who could only offer
tan thought- that there ought to be more
ienedm; the labor unions he felt were too
efrictive and wasted manpower by keep-
ig too many men on a job. He also threw
0 an anti-monopoly line, "to make the pro-
ram national," he explained. But he did
ot seem at all to be ridift' a white horse
nd4'aving a plumed hat; he seemed just
young man squirming hnhappily in his
hair. In France the far Right occupies
bout one sixteenth of the pie, as the cir-
ular benches in the new national assembly
re divided. It makes a kind of utomatic
iose against most gverfnet propositions,
trough which the asembly waits patiently
s it might wait through the striking of a.
lock. The MRP, which the Communists
onsider their main antagonist, has as many
berals as consei'vaties in it; and the nen
nd parties of the center are assembled in
h organization called, naturally, the "Cap-
al's gathering of the Left." There are, of

One has the feeling that a permanent

The change does not seem temporiry.
Ate British Labor Government has won
every by-election in eighteen months, the
brst time this has hapened to any gov-
9rnment in modern British history. Brit-
sh Conservatives are talking frantically
about changing the name of their party
er about throwing their support to liberals
[j some by-elections, in order to break the
string of labor victories.
'ome of the Laborites even feel the Tories
re a little too pleased by the recent bad

eather in Britain which has dreadfully
irt the government's export plans by wor-
ming the coal shortage and shutting down

school system, the main features of which
1. Low salaries. The 1945-46 average
salary Is abot $2,000 with wide variations
between the states in wage scales. Four-
teen states pay 75 per cent or more of
their teachers less than $2,000 annually.
2. Shortage. For 1946-47 it is estlijiated
that out of the 865,000 teachers, 11,000 are
teaching on emergency certificates and
over 14,000 jobs are vacant.
3. Class curtailment. 62,000 children
are now deprived from schooling by the
teacher shortage.
Willard Givens, NEA Executive Secretary,
states that the solution lies in an "aggres-
sive, nation-wide, professional program,
which, although addressed primarily to the
nation's teachers, deserves the careful study
of all citizens."
It is the last aspect of Given's program
which needs to be brought home to the
American public. The nation's citizens have
'welled too long under the out-dated im-
pression that teachers are mostly grey-hair-
ed spinsters who take their children out of
their hands at the important shopping hours
of the day.

In France where there is much Commun-
ist feeling, the story might develop differ-
ently. But that Conservatism feels faint
here too is shown in many ways; one is the
frequency with which conservatives, espec-
ially in the foreign colony, praise Leon Blum.
Parisians who cursed Blum ten years ago
now cannot speak enough of the old Social-
ist's charm, his culture, his probity. But
Leon Blum, they grant, does not have strong
popular support any longer; he is a great
figure, admired and almost revered, but he
has floated off out of the daily political
struggle into the loftier levels of elder states-
manship. This picture of a roomful of Con-
servatives finding comfort in an aging Soc-
alist is not a bad symbol of the disoriented
and defeated state of Conservatism in West-
ern Europe today.

WE WOULD like to stand up and be count-
ed on the side of the editors of Show-
Me, the University of Missouri's humorous
magazine, versus university officials and
mneibers of Sigma Delta Chi, the journal-
ism fraternity. The parties of the second
part decided to delete a cartoon spoofing
a member of Congress for his charges that
Communism is being taught at the school.
One of the things students should learn
in schoolr we think, is not to let their
public servants push them around. It's
more important in state-supported schools
than in others, because very often their
officials are pushed arund by legislators
and sundry public officials on whose favor
they depend for appropriations.
Perhaps the educators may feel sometimes
that they have to curry favor, but the edu-
catees don't have to, and shouldn't do it.
Quite the contrary. As citizens, they are sov-
ereign, and while they shouldn't hush their
public servants around, either, they ought to
feel perfectly free to express disapproval.
If a Congressman indulges in folly, hold-
ing up the mirror of humor to him can be
downright therapeutic. As a matter of fact,
by rights the next issue of Show-Me ought
to have a cartoon ribbing the socks off those

scairdy cats, the university officials and Sig-
ma Delta Chi.

Campus Charyit
EDITOR'S NOTE: Lou Orlin, chirman of
the FPind brive Conmnlttee of tie Stiident
Legislature, reports on the reorganiation of
the procedure for handling campus drives for
charity during the year.
LAST SEMESTER the student body,
through its representatives in the Legis-
lature, requested a clarification and reorgan-
ization of the then existing fund drive sit-
uation. A special committee was provided
whose job it was to consider thoroughly all
aspects of charity activity on the campus,
and to present a report which would be the
basis of future action by the Legislature.
That committee met and undertook to de-
fine the scope and limits of such activity.
It was found that student-charity re-
lationships were at . low. No over-all pro-
gram was in effect, resulting in unspaced
and unlimited fund drives. Consequently,
the individual organizations experienced a
gradual slump in contributions, while the
student body adopted an attitude of apathy
if not disgust. The need was for first, a re-
statement of principles, and second, a ma-
hinery to carry out those principles.
The committee decided to place emphasis
on those charitableorganizations whose ac-
tivity depended primarily upon contributions
received from the campus, and whose work
was as directly as possible concerned with
the campus. Charity, the committee felt,
was an educational process, the giver re-
ceiving as well as the ecipient. The opin-
ion was that the students should have de-
finite and limited drives, behind which they
could lend the weight of their organization,
for the ultimate gain of both the studena
and the project. Upon this premise, the
committee presented a bill in the Legi'
lature which provided for the establishment
of the U. of M. Campus Chest.
This Campus Chest is now the official
consolidating organization for fund drives
on campus, having been passed by the Leg-
islature before its Fall adjournment. Under
the act, five units now comprise the author-
izec whole of charity activity. They are: 1)
Assembly Fresh Air Camp Comm.; 2) Galens
Comm.; Daily Goodfellow Comm.; 4) World
Student Service Fund Comm.; 5) Heif es
for Europe Comm. The Legislature will act
upon petitions by each of these committees
for permanent drive dates which will be-
come traditional. These drives will be even-
ly spaced, and will occur once for each unit
during the school year. Publicity will be
both general and particular, becoming spec-
ialized as each organization undertakes its
drive. In this way the students will be giv-
en an opportunity to acquaint themselves
with all aspects of the work of the rest.
New members may not be added except by
approval of a majority of the Legislature.
It has become accepted that the only way
for obtaining a substantial proceed is to hold
a tag day. Although we acknowledge that
it is effective, we intend to experiment with
different types of activity, danes and carni-
vals for example, to meet the individual unit
The committee feels that students will
adopt a new interest and will participate
actively, knowing that definite organization
and estalished goals are present. It is our
intention to make the Chest a permanent
campus institution, a campus project. We
envision a University Fresh Air Camp built
up and maintained by the work of students,
so that they would be able to use it in Win-
ter as a sports area. We look forward to
"adopting" the crippled children at the hos-
pital through Galens, to giving local under-
privileged youngsters a start through the
Goodfellow organization, to aiding foreign
students, like ourselves, through WSSF, and
to help the Heifers Comm. allieviate the
livestock and clothing situation in needy
We believe that we have fulfilled the trust
of the students in this matter. Our action
at all times was governed primarily by con-
sideration for the students, and our decis-
ions have been reached with a view to pre-
senting the student body with a solution

that would be desirable to them. Now that
the Chest has been established, we are re-
ciprocating the trust that the students plac-
ed us. We ask only the justification of our
action that will come by strong participa-
tion, suggestion, and constructive criticism.

LAST YEAR was a year of defeat for pro-
gressives in the United States. But the
pattern of defeat that came from the poll-
ing places of the country was punctured by
major liberal victories as significant as they
were exceptional. Several notorious charac-
ters of the Right, such as Burton Wheeler,
were driven out of public life; genuine tri-
bunes of the people, like Governor Jim
Folsom of Alabama, were elected to office.
Moreover, well entrenched machines were
bodily challenged in several states.
Where did these developments take place?
... The triumphs were confined almost ex-
clusively to the South and West. In the
15 states from Illinois to Maine, progres-
sives won only one victory in senatorial or
gubernatorial contests. This was the re-
election of Senator Harley Kilgore of West
In those states, few candidates of the cal-
ibre of Folsom and Kilgore were nominated,
let alone elected. Nearly all of the "lib-
erals" offered to the voters were tired old

According to Tuesday's Deily a
group of delegates (71 in all) vot-
ed on and passed a resolution de-
nouncing Gov. Sigler for investi-
gating subversive activity on the
campus. The headline read "Stu-
dent Vets Censure Governor."
Webster's Collegiate Dictionary,
5th edition says that a delegate
is "one sent empowered to act
for another." I do not recall send-
ing a delegate to vote on that is-
sue. On a campus with 18,000 stu-
dents it seems rather unreason-
able to say that 71 delegates were
a representative group. So if you
don't mind please do not quote me
as denouncing Gov. Kim. He was
voted into office by people 'who
knew who and what they were
voting for.
That same dictionary says that
censure means "condemning as
wrong" and "hostile criticism."
Being a student veteran it again
appears that I am criticizing Sig-
ler. Again that isn't so. All of
this misrepresentation is making
me very bitter.
The newly formed Committee
for Academic Freedom is another
group with a "broad, representa-
tive base." It seems to want to
keep any investigation from "get-
ting out of hand." Apparently it
is made up of all the pink tints
from any campus organization
containing pink tints. They will
probably do a lot to stop the hys-
teria they claim is abounding on
the campus. They can cry on each
others shouler.
I see no reason for this hysteria.

back of the hand by this University when
he wrote inquiring abcut a room applica-
The young man in question was addressed
as "Dear Miss Blank," and told that, "We
.. are happy to report that we have found
a room for you in the Stockwell Dormitory."
To Put It Euphemistically
THOSE OF YOU who may share our ir-
ritation at the sports headlines should
be informed that there are worse terms than
"thinclads" and "pucksters" in use, on other

gentlemen walked up and asked what he
was doing.
"Do you know how to get into this of-
fice," the freshman queried.
"Sure, I have a key," the kindly gentle-
man answered.
"Just picking my teeth," the freshman
answered as he put the screwdriver hack
in his pocket and walked away.
OUR West of Division Street correspondent
informs- us that one of the downtown
restaurant menues advertises "baked mac-
aroni and cheese au gratin."
